First Impression is very Good, table was very private, server was deck out in a tux and totally knew what he was doing, and most importantly the Chateaubriand was WOW. Our friends and my wife had a very tasty and cooked to perfection meal. Not our first time and definitely will not be the last time we enjoy a fantastic night out at the Veranda!

My hubby and I celebrated our 39th anniversary. Take advantage of the valet parking as there is little to limited parking. Hub’s had made reservations for us. We had a cocktail in the lounge. I was somewhat surprised there was no signature cocktails. We shared Chateaubriand which was excellent. Great service and nice selection of wines. There is a lovely outdoor dining area so if weather permits take advantage of our glorious Florida weather. We definitely consider The Verandah a special occasion restaurant ($$$$).

Went here last night for my birthday after hearing raves about it for years. Our waiter Keith was amazing with a wonderful sense of humor and very knowledgeable. We will ask for him again. We had oysters in a puffed pastry which was excellent. Then the best rack of lamb we have ever had. Ended the evening with a piece of Key Lime pie which was okay. The only negative was our table was so close to the next one that at one point the people at the next table joined in on our conversation.

We had a reservation and was looking forward to this restaurant which is a fort Meyers classic. Rather disappointed. Out of a basic type of liquor, Southern comfort. I ordered the Cooper/crab hash. It came on a plate with very little sauce not one vegetable or even a garnish other than a grilled lemon to accompany it. What the desert tasted great it lacked in an updated presentation style. I felt like I was dining 20 years ago. Alert, your customers will all be dying off and you'll be empty.

The Veranda has a reputation for fine dining, and it deserves it. We went for a special birthday celebration with friends. We were early so sat at the bar which was very comfortable. Dinner was outstanding, service, what you would expect from a top notch establishment. Truly elegant with a southern flair.
