Naples is interesting, sometimes the best restaurants are in nondescript strip malls. This is one of those. Fantastic for both lunch and dinner and just a short drive off of I75.

If your looking for some great French Cuisine, but don't want to pay the prices on 5th Ave- this is a great spot. Always new specials that incorporate local fish and flavors, but you'll also find your traditional favorites. Don't let the strip mall location fool you- the chef knows what he is doing. My favorite spot for French in... More

We had dinner and everyone participated in the dinner special. The salads were great, the dinners were not skimpy and dessert was good. The creme brulee was burnt on top and I was disappointed that they were still served that way but overall it was good and the service was outstanding.

Have wanted to try this place for a while and finally got to do it. Should have done it years ago. The small out of the way restaurant is a delight to the eyes and pallet. The staff went out of their way to explain the menu and we enjoyed every bite of dinner and dessert. The house wine was... More

Our first visit will bring us back again. We opted to dine outside where our great server, Elicha, took good care of us. She knew her fond preparation and made some good suggestions. The veal special, escargot appetizer, and my rack of lamb were superb. (they even had mint jelly for the chops)

I went here with a small group. I ended up with Croque Madame (I'm a sucker for a fried egg). It was very good. we sat outside and enjoyed the Naples, sunshine. I'm listing this site as mid-range pricing, but the special was a good deal. I will go again.

The French American Bistro has a very fitting acronym: FAB! We've eaten there several times, lunch and dinner, and their food is reliably great. Always great service, and the menu is a nice blend of reliable fare and new items. Comfortable seating inside and out. Why not 5 stars? FAB is quaint and small, and it's not easy getting a... More

Casual and cozy. Food was very good and proportions were generous (without overdoing things). My salmon was perfect and the veggies were steamed crispy. Our waitress was sweet, efficient and not at all pushy when our table needed a few minutes to chat first. I shy away from anything pretentious, and this Bistro was anything but.

My friend I stumbled on this amazing french restaurant. Such nice and welcoming staff. My friend had a croque monsieur with a side salad that she enjoyed very much. I had the warm goat cheese salad which was delicious. We shared a chocolate moose that was out of this world amazing. Our waitress Dorine took such good care of us,we... More
