Everyone in this restaurant was over-the-top friendly and knowledgeable. We weren't rushed at all, but were waited on at just the right times---without having to ask for a thing. That friendly attitude had obviously spread to the customers; everyone seemed happy and friendly as well. The appetizer choices were too appealing, so I felt obligated to get two! The Foie... More

This places delivers on big portions of wholesome food. Lots of mash potatoes going on if you like that sort of thing. I am not a big fan but they changed my side dish so I had the Brie potato cake which was delicious. It's a lively place and you get seated quickly. Overall a good place to visit on... More

If you haven't been to Bistro 821 you've been missing one of the best restaurants in Naples, FL. The food is phenomenal, the wine list is excellent and the service is top notch. Bistro 821 offers both inside and outside dinning. They offer a wine and dine special menu from 5:00 PM till 6:00 PM which gets you two entrees... More

I live in the Midwest and love to take every opporuinity possible to enjoy great seafood when I am in a coastal setting such as Naples. Tonight Bistro 821 took what could have been a great meal and turned it into an unmitigated overpriced culinary apocalypse. The Red Snapper fillet was seasoned with a poor ( and close to nauseating)... More

Well sir, I beg to differ. This dish has been served for 18 years with the same sauce, and we have sold untold 1000's of them over the years. It is our 2nd most requested dinner second only to our Sea Bass. Perhaps you might have said something to your server or a manager. If there is ever a problem... More

Our Thanksgiving tradition: Grilled Sea Bass (that is to die for) and the Pot Roast which is incredible. Impeccable service and fantastic food. Thank you Billy, for another wonderful Thanksgiving meal.

Overall Bistro 821 was decent, food was excellent as expected for the price. Quantity was above average. Service was okay. Party of four, we had the following: Steak Risotto, Seafood Risotto, Paella & Rib eye. All were very good. The Paella serving was huge. Ordered Caesar Salad without anchovies, but both arrived with anchovies. The only draw back was the... More

We were disappointed with our food. A turn off was the tip calculation (not the servers fault. Computer program is incorrect (on purpose?). Loved our server Monica but our meals were so-so. I ordered the Parmesan Dover sole. Nice presentation with sole towered over vegetables atop mashed potatoes. Sole was so-so. Mashed potatoes over salted. Partner ordered the paella which... More

Lets See, 1- Tip calculations do not include Sales Tax, only off Sub Total . $109 bill 20% = 21.80. Right on the Money .. Not Sure what you are implying ? but it "turns ME off" Its only a Suggestion, most find it helpful, Sorry it "turns you off". The Staff does have to Claim their Tips , regardless... More

We ate outside and the dinner and service could not have been any better! The Sea Bass was phenomenal. (It is a little rich, though). My friends had the streak and the risotto and they both were very happy.
