We stopped in after reading the reviews. We were greeted warmly and offer drinks and the specials. The owner is a great host and made some great recommendations. We had the Provençale flatbread, Classique flatbread, Quinoa salad, Parisian Burger and the Bleu burger. Everything was cooked to perfection and served with elegance. The portions were huge! One person ordered the... More

I had dinner at Mad Fresh Bistro last night and I can't wait to visit again. I understand other's reviewers regarding the atmosphere but the food more than made up for the very casual environment. This is the best food we have enjoyed in Fort Myers. I had the duck which was prepared perfectly and my friends shared the burger... More

Went there for lunch and was very impressed with the menu, inventive and not the usual. Kudos to the chef. The interior is underwhelming. While this was ok for lunch, there are only a few tables and no atmosphere. Our food deserved a better venue and we hope they get a place the fits their quality. I must mention the... More

Best burger I've ever had. The Sconnie Burger leaves nothing to be desired. Bacon jam, aioli, cheddar, cooked perfectly to medium rare without even asking. Definitely recommend.

Sophisticated food that appealed to my whole family with palate pleasing choices. My husband and I both chose the salmon with roasted vegetables and a rich bisque. Our teenager chose the Margarita flat bread, which was on a tasty thin crust and there was plenty to bring home. My mom had a smaller chicken flatbread, also big enough to expect... More

We arrived shortly after 5 Pm on a Friday in late Oct 2016. We were the first to arrive so we sat at the bar. The host/owner was very pleasant. We have eaten there several times before with always a good experience. This was our first time after having heard of their new chef. I had the sea scallops and... More

Had to check out this bistro owned by the same husband & wife of Azure where the food & service is outstanding. Seating is limited but worth the wait, if you have to wait. I do not eat meat but my friend's Spanish Burger was very enticing that I brought one home for my wife. The verdict by both parties... More

I was told about this from a coworker and must say, this was an amazing dining experience and a must for all people that love food! Everything cooked to perfection and reasonable priced.

This one's a tough place to review because the food deserves 5 stars, the service rates 3 to 4 stars, the atmosphere is 2 stars and the prices are 1 star. I had scallops, which were excellent - giant round medallions perfectly seared. One of my cousins had a hamburger that may have been slightly better than one from Culver's... More

Had lunch. Planning to come back for dinner in the future. Truffle fries were outstanding. Burger and salad were expertly prepared and deliciously original.
