Had a phenomenal dinner here. Scallops were best I've ever had. Swordfish was excellent as well. Cheesecake dessert was very good. Classic restaurant. White tablecloths with waiters in tuxes. $$$$ Only knock was our service was just shy of the $$$$ prices.

We have been coming to the Veranda for 12 years and have always had a great dining experience. We begin with cocktails in the piano bar where the atmosphere is warm, intimate, and romantic.

I put this on the top of my list of places to dine while we are here, and it certainly lived up to my expectations. You step into this historic home, and there is also a lovely garden area. The food, the service, and the surroundings made it a wonderful dining experience.

A truly delightful and delicious experience....the Veranda! Definitely worth making this a priority when in downtown Ft. Myers. The appetizers and the entree's are marvelous; the drinks are delectable; the atmosphere is enticing. The piano bar allows for a relaxing interlude before or after dining. Don't miss this experience!

The atmosphere is quaint as it's in an old historic home right in downtown Ft. Myers. The waiters were tuxedos and give impeccable service, and the food is always delicious and beautifully presented. This is our absolute favorite place to celebrate special occasions and to bring friends and family.

The food was delicious, stuffed artichoke fritters were a nice change from the usual appetizer selections. The service was impeccable, make sure to request Peter as he is the apitomy of professionalism. The surroundings are lovely, a step back in time.

What a wonderful experience. The inside charm takes you back in history with wood floors. The rooms are decorated differently giving you a different feel every visit. A charming place to celebrate happy occasions.

Following the recommendation of the hotel staff, I took my wife to the Veranda for dinner. It is old world elegance and unsurpassed in quality of the food. Make no mistake, this is 5-star quality and cost but the service, the food and the atmosphere live up to the ranking. This is now a must when we visit Fort Myers.

Thank blaughn
