Superb southern style food and service! Starts with the lovely downtown and as you approach the entrance, the valet positively welcomes you as you enter a home with history. Gorgeous interior along with a stunning & inviting outdoor patio unlike anything else in town. A perfect place to spoil yourself (& the fragrant, table side roses are real!). Please do make this a destination during your visit to Fort Meyers. You’ll thank yourself later!
The greeting at the door was welcoming and warm. Winston's service was impeccable! Very beautiful atmosphere, old world vibe. Seafood Sampler was done to perfection as was the Sea Bass! Worth the higher prices. Great for a special occasion too. Highly recommend it!
One of the top 5 restaurants in Southwest Florida. What a wonderful atmosphere. Bustling inside with a beautiful bar, grand piano complete with pianist, gorgeous wood trimmings, a couple dancing celebrating something, wine rack with a special table for two and people, lots of people. The ambiance was palpable and that is what stays with you. The turn-of-the-century homes combined to form this restaurant are decorated . We were quickly provided a table inside for drinks while our table in the courtyard was being prepared. Service was instantly perfect. And then there was dinner on the patio. Wonderful. Heaters are available for the chilly nights. J.D., our server could not have been more pleasant and accommodating. He took great care of us. Our appetizers and meals, all of them were outstanding. Crab cakes, scallops, salmon, sea bass, all of them. Dessert was also great. Absolutely no complaints. Will definitely visit again.
We love this restaurant. We've been there a few times and it was perfect every time. I love everything about this place except for one thing. We ordered the scallops and there were only 2. I would rather have 3 scallops and pay a few more dollars but you never make a plate with an even number and especially not 2 of anything no matter what the market price is. Other than the scallops its a great restaurant.
After having worked previously in fine dining myself, I was hesitant to have dinner at The Veranda simply because I don’t care for the general pretentious atmosphere of most top dollar restaurants. Our server Winston has me convinced that I was wrong! He was very professional, polite and attentive to my friend and myself during our visit! Winston made us feel like a little more than just regular people, while still maintaining a comfortably “casual” disposition. The wine he recommended was perfect and his table side salad was both entertaining and delicious. Everyone on staff Thursday 3/18/21 was very gracious and seemed happy to be working, including the hostess Malorie (who recommended a delicious gin drink!) 11/10 will be raving about The Veranda and I’ll most likely only request Winston for future visits.
