On two occasions this year we have phoned and confirmed reservations on the patio at The Veranda. Each time we were told by the Manager that they did not have our reservation and that no tables were available outside. The hostess told us that they did not take reservations for lunch and that they did not have our names. They... More

While visiting Cape Coral we had the occasion to celebrate my brother in laws 90+ birthday at the Veranda with my wife, sister in law, brother in law, and his friend. The Veranda is a beautiful and elaborate restaurant in Ft. Myers that is visited by the wealthy. We were quickly seated by the staff in a quiet corner witch... More

Lovely location and ambiance. We were seated under an air conditioning vent and had a constant blast of very cold air blowing on us. By the time we left I had a stiff neck. Don't come here to eat a healthy meal. Everything came with a cream or butter sauce. Two of the meals were very good, a veal chop... More

After being given a gift certificate from our grandchildren, we were eager to try The Veranda. We recently moved to the Ft. Myers area and were unaware of any of the restaurants. The Veranda couldn't have been a better choice. Its setting in the middle of downtown Ft. Myers in a Victorian style home makes it a very unique and... More

Reservations run about three weeks out, but it is well worth the wait. Great atmosphere in an old historic building. Excellent food. Great presentation. I had the Hogg fish special and it was delicious. Wait staff wore tuxedos. Definitely will return.

The Veranda is the perfect place to go to if you're looking for a touch of class in Fort Myers. It's a beautiful old house with a pretty outdoor patio, a piano players, and waiters in bow ties. It was a fairly busy Saturday night but still service was not super-attentive. I got seafood with fettucine; the noodles were mushy,... More

The Veranda does not disappoint! Great for a special occasion or just a wonderful dinner or lunch. Waiters wear tuxes, beautiful atmosphere in refinished Victorian home. We live in the area and recommend it to friends and visitors often.

When reserving a table, I mentioned it was a special occasion and we were seated at a window side table for two overlooking their beautiful patio. Peter was our attentive waiter. My guy ordered escargot for the appetizer. It was served on puff pastry with a delectable sauce and I helped him clean the plate. I can't remember the last... More

We very much enjoyed the food and the ambiance at the Veranda. Friendly staff and welcoming atmosphere at what appeared to be a historic establishment. Outdoor seating looked very nice (we were inside because it was busy). It is quite pricey, so don't expect to eat and drink here on the cheap. We were there on Friday night and it... More
