"Good menu with lots of seafood and other things, too. Good corn bread, but not as spicy as it used to be. We often like to split a salad, each have an entrée and then split dessert. Wish the salad was split in the kitchen like they do at many local restaurants, including one of our favorites, B . . . , at Venetian Village. This chain apparently has a "give the customer an extra plate and make them split it" policy that isn't very customer friendly. Still, this place has a great atmosphere and great location."

A chic Parisian-style bistro, Chez Boët serves authentic, market-inspired French classics such as Kobe boeuf bourguignon, bouillabaisse, orange duck, locally-sourced seafood, and cheese Fondue. Our menu is now 90% gluten-free and features Kobe beef, organic spices, and healthy French sea salt. The country-French cuisine is inspired by classic recipes of fresh seasonal ingredients handed down through generations of French home cooks. Mixologist Philippe recommends French aperitifs, his classic cocktails, digestifs or scotchs from the full bar. Warm service and designer decor create a welcoming ambiance perfect for an intimate dinner or for entertaining friends. An outdoor covered terrace has views of the waterfront village of Crayton Cove. Since 2003, Parisian imports Lisa and Philippe Boët have been organizing private parties for groups and celebrations.

There are three ways to enjoy the Bayside Seafood Grill & Bar, one of Naples most beloved waterfront restaurants for locals and visitors alike. The Café, on the sidewalk level, has the wonderful, bustling ambience of a big city neighborhood café. The Café menu offers sandwiches, salads and light entrees through the late afternoon and evening. The Grill, accepting reservations, is upstairs and overlooks the Venetian Bay -- one of Naples best waterfront dining views. The Grill specializes in creative and superbly prepared seafood, meats, and pasta dishes. The Grill menu is also served on the Upper Deck Bar and Covered Patio, an award winning outdoor cocktail and dining spot that overlooks Venetian Bay and provides spectacular hues of the setting sun. Between 2-5 p.m. the Upper Deck Bar offers a lighter, late lunch menu.<br />

"We enjoy dining here, outside under cover or open air or indoors next to water-view windows. Good dinner menu with many seafood and other choices. Appreciate that when we ask to share a salad here, they serve it on two plates. Also like that we can delete mashed potatoes and increase the vegies with the entrees that come with potatoes. Service a bit disappointing this evening. Our server disappeared for long periods. We enjoy the entertainment stationed outdoors."

SeaSalt is inspired by its location near the water and is dedicated to seafood and its accompaniments. Chef Fabrizio Aielli brings to his cuisine an infusion of the simplicity of Venetian home cooking, learned at his mother’s knee, along with the upscale and innovative techniques he has garnered during his years of practice in fine restaurants in Italy, the Caribbean and Washington, DC. He explores time-honored methods and melds them with the new, bringing a handcrafted and honest restoration of traditional dishes. As far as possible, ingredients are sourced from local producers and markets and the disherfolk. Chef Fabrizio Aielli is inspired by the mainstays of the seafood repertoire, using organic and local produce, wild caught seafood, poultry and meat raised naturally without hormones, antibiotics or animal by-products whenever possible, emphasizing fresh and seasonal ingredients.

"Good outdoor lunch dining overlooking the action in Old Naples. Nice menu with interesting options. Good sweet potato fries. Don't think the three kinds of salt on the table are much of a bonus/attraction. Aren't most people trying to consume less salt?"

Pleasing to the palate and the eye alike, Baleen Naples mixes Old Florida charm with elegant candlelit elegance. Beautiful chandeliers and soft mahogany furnishings set the tone for an elegant dining experience…. Toes-in-the-sand dining takes place as Baleen spills out through the grand doors to the terrace with tables overlooking the sweeping beach and ends with a collection of tables for cocktails in the sand next to the fire pit. Whether seated in an indoor epicurean enclave or a barefoot beach table, visitors can indulge in three daily seating’s at Baleen Naples with options including a breakfast menu with a Gulf Coast twist on traditional favorites. With exceptional entrees and an extensive selection of wines the dinner menu is filled with local ingredients and beautifully composed dishes. For the guest looking for light fare enjoy our bar menu in the cocktail section with an array of seafood selections as well as sandwiches and appetizers.

"Can't find a more beautiful outdoor beachside location for a restaurant in Naples. And, really appreciated that our salads didn't come out 2 minutes after we ordered them and our entrees didn't come 1 minute after we finished our salads. We had a nice leisurely meal, unlike at so many places in Naples that rush you through cocktails, salad and dinner in 45 minutes (and that's after waving them off a couple of times and saying we're not ready to order). Fish entrees were good. Floridian salad didn't have any of the promised grapefruit. Server was pleasant but not especially attentive. One of the few beachside restaurants in Naples & a great place to take visitors. Torches and beautiful sunsets remind us of Hawaii."

"Nice ambiance, whether indoors or out, and good location on busy 5th Ave. Love that they have so many sides - and mostly good ones. although the butternut squash side is way too sweet - it is like a dessert. Watermelon chunk salad is a good starter. Wish the service was a bit more relaxed. Don't want to get our salads two minutes after we order them, and our entrees one minute after our salads are removed. Service is way too rushed - and we say this after dining at this place many, many times over the past years."

Renowned Chef Tim McKee, 2009 James Beard award winner for “Best Chef Midwest”, designed the core menu for Sea Change which focuses on sustainable seafood, highlighting fisheries that use environmentally responsible methods of gathering and farming seafood. The menu also includes a number of items under the heading “Not Fish” as well as late night offerings of small plates and raw bar selections. <br />

"Some items very good, others so-so. Very good scallop on a fork. Order two or three for a great app. Duck confit app also very good as was celery root soup with vegies. Servers very casually (some would say grubbily) dressed. Reminded us of servers in Austin, Texas, at outdoor barbecue joints. Too casual for a downtown restaurant. This place has a new chef with a great track record who is experimenting so we look forward to visiting again. Very loud music made for a loud dinner despite very few diners."

"Dinner food and menu are improving here after new chef began. Good strawberry salad. Like the add-ons, especially the crabcake. Glad sweet potato fries have returned to the menu. Lots of outdoor dining across from Loring Park. Good weekend brunch, too."
