I love this place. Everything I order or the people I am with order is just wonderful. Prices are right on par with fine dining in Naples and the wine list lets you find very good wine at good prices. The Soup de Poisson is one of my favorites. The Moules and Frites are fabulous. The specials are very good. Last time I was there I had the Pasta Crevettes. Perfect! A very light tomato sauce with shrimp. My daughter had the Beef Burgundy and she loved it. I would think that no matter what you order, you will be very satisfied with it and want to go again.

Came here because our friends raved about it. We were heartily greeted at the door and given a nice table in the back. Maybe my expectations were too high. I ordered a salad and the petite coquilles. My husband ordered the salmon and French onion soup. I was appalled at the salad I received - a fistful of greens, a small tomato cut in half and a dressing. This for $12? Then when I received my dinner, it was 2 scallops with a sauce of some kind (not at all like the coquilles saint Jaques, I have had in the past), a dollop of quinoa and some boring vegetables that were simply steamed - $30! My husband's response was the same, except his dollop was flavorless couscous, and the same boring vegetables but a nice piece of salmon, but $40? I have eaten at many wonderful places in Naples, pricey and not so pricey. I won't go back to this one.

Every year my fiancé and I come to Naples, we make this our restaurant to celebrate our vacation. It’s menu of tasty temptations coupled with the warmth extended by the owners, makes this spot delightful! Good food. Friendly service. Best of all, outdoor dining and they are dog friendly!!!! Thank you Lisa and Philippe! And special thanks to our waiter Steve who took good care of us! See you next year!


Also, good vegan/vegetarian options.

There are now many fine restaurants in Naples, but this Paris style bistro is my personal favorite. The ambience would stand on its own, but the nightly, on site, warm and personal hospitality provided by Lisa and Philippe Boet move its ambience to a uniquely higher level. The 17 or more entrees span the breadth of French home cooking. Every one we have tried has been superb. The wines, including those by the glass, are excellent and priced fairly. The service is friendly, yet professional. There is ample on street parking and a free parking lot behind the restaurant. The restaurant seems busier now than in previous years, no doubt because its quality is no longer a secret. However, we have never found the noise level to be unpleasant. We have referred many friends to Chez Boet, and they have thanked us for it. It is a gem in Naples’s crown.

I would have rated this restaurant 5 stars but for the noise. It was so noisy I couldn't carry on a conversation with my wife. For us, the noise level decreased our enjoyment of this meal. The mushroom appetizer, pommes frites, scalloped potatoes, and napoleon for dessert were excellent. The red snapper was very good and the duck very tender. Service was OK. Should have been better for a restaurant of this class. One warning: Parking here could be a big problem.
