Went to veranda for the first time. It was excellent. Great atmosphere, great service and great food. We were with another couple and everyone loved it. If you are in the area definitely check it out.

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.

Micheal is an asset to your establishment. I recommended The Veranda to my friends... More

Infused with character, totally charming, classy, yet not at all stuffy, The Veranda is a gem. Service was spot on. Wonderful menu options. Carefully prepared and delicious food. Fair value. Patio dining option. Just delightful.

The atmosphere at The Veranda is great. But since the quality of the food is always an issue vis a vie the expense I can only rate the cuisine as average given the cost.
