We went here for my birthday. Went early and it was practically empty. The food and service were excellent except for the host. We waited only a couple of minutes which was fine, but didn't expect her insincere and snarky attitude when she did appear. The swordfish was recommended by a friend and was excellent. We also had the scallops which were delicious. We tried to make reservations for a later time, but the phone went unanswered. Would definitely go again. The entrees and 2 drinks each were $100 plus tip so not an everyday place for us, but nice for a special occasion.
Our experience at F.M. Don’s was lovely. The staff were friendly and attentive. The food tasted great (although the presentation was something to be desired) and didn’t take long to arrive at the table. The atmosphere was bright, open, and relaxing. We went for brunch and very much enjoyed our food. The crab benedict contained a ton of crab, and the poached egg was cooked perfectly. The brioche french toast wasn’t too sweet and the thick cut bacon was a perfect, savory compliment. The kids fish and chips was by far the tastiest. The breaded Mahi Mahi was super juicy and flavorful, and the portion was huge - easily 6oz+. The fish did not require any additions like lemon or sauce. Again, the only minor criticism was that the presentation of most of the dishes was a bit plain. However, we would definitely come back.
Wonderful appetizers. Escargot, goat cheese and tuna tower were delicious. Crusted Mahi was very good. Nice ambiance but when busy a bit noisy. Server very busy but did a great job. I definitely recommend this venue.
Delightful find in Punta Gorda. Quality food and service. Plenty of great menu choices for all diet considerations. We were waiting to pick someone up at the airport, took a little walk through downtown, which was decorated for Christmas, when we found F.M. Don's with indoor and outdoor tables. Escargot and mussels were wonderful with homemade crispy baguettes.
Ambiance was warm shabby chip and calmly elegant. Food selection was limited for lunch but decent priced, it did take a long time but was very good. While the host was very welcoming our server was cold and took forever for everything outside of collecting our credit card I'm disappointed to report.
