This is a wonderful restaurant for one of those special occasions or for anytime you want a pleasant atmosphere and good food. The outdoor dining experience is a wonderful one.....in a beautiful garden (New Orleans Like). I always take visitors here when they come to this area.

My husband and I have had the pleasure of dining at The Veranda on several different occasions. It has amazing food! We have also had the pleasure of being served by an excellent wait staff. Our waiter, Pete Turner was wonderful. We sat at the piano table as we waited for our table and was waited on by the bartender... More

A delightful turn of the century home tucked away on 2nd St. The restaurant has an excellent menu and a nice wine list. We celebrated the 25th anniversary of a family member and couldn't have selected a finer restaurant. The service was impeccable; the food fantastic; and the prices worth the experience. The next time I'm in the area, I... More

We went to the Veranda last for our anniversary and decided to go again. Great Choice! Booked early and asked for a table in one of the window areas overlooking the outdoor area. Pete was our server, and as always, made the evening a delightful experience. So knowledgeable about the menu and the specials, and always right there when needed,... More

This place is amazing for any special occasion. The décor takes you back in time to the guilded age of America not only through the house but the wait staff as well. Every aspect was taking into consideration to give the diner a refined experience. The food was prepared artfully, sometimes right in front of you! Wait staff offers a... More

My husband and I have celebrated our Anniversay at the Veranda since we moved to Ft.Myers five years ago. The experience has always been great. The food and the service has been consistently excellent. The atmosphere is calm and quiet, with a piano player in the bar. Reminds me of "the old days". We will go back to the Veranda.... More

Food is well prepared, and presented with flair. Waitstaff is somewhat supercilious and indifferent to our seniority. The facility, the warmth of its embrace and the neighborhood are to be treasured. Overall, delightful!
