Restaurant Testimonials

Mr. Kreuziger,

I am writing this letter as a humble note of appreciation for the outstanding customer service provided by your restaurant manager, Ellen Hale on 3rd July 2017. I made a special request of Ms. Hale to coordinate a very important dinner request and unusual payment arrangement for one of our employees; who happened to be vacationing in Tampa. She immediately identified a solution (buying a gift card for the guest to pick up). In addition, she also recommended a lovely bottle of wine to be delivered to the table. Unfortunately, the guest decided he wanted to go to Café Alfresco as he has been there in the past. Ms. Hale responded promptly, and smoothly coordinated the change with a manager at Café Alfrasco. Our employee had a fabulous time.

I am really pleased with the customer care exhibited by your staff. Great service makes your customers feel that you care about developing a long-term relationship that means more than just having a nice dinner.

I would love to recommend your establishment to anyone who is looking for a first-class dining experience. Keep up the good work.

Kind regards,

Extremely accommodating staff at Bon Appetite, went above and beyond to provide a lovely dining experience for my family and I. So much so, we came back for an afternoon bite on their lovely waterfront deck. Thank you for going above and beyond in both the kitchen, as well as at the table. If you're looking for recommendations, the grilled salmon was divine, along with the grouper medallions. Their fromage board, shrimp avocado toast and house salad hit the spot on a hot Florida afternoon!

Stellar Service and exquisite food  July 5, 2017

My husband took me to this restaurant on our first date and when he proposed. That was 18 years ago and it's still just as wonderful today. The food is excellent and the views are amazing!!! This is the perfect place for a romantic evening and I highly recommend ordering any of the seafood dishes because everything is so fresh!!!

This restaurant has been around for ages and always good. It has an element of quiet graciousness. It's right on the waterfront, so your view matches your surroundings. You can expect top notch service, a varied menu, and yummy food. Low key music makes it easy to communicate with your table companions.

Always a wonderful place to go for a meal or just a drink. Enjoyed our aperol / Spritzer, the Dunedin sunset drink. Can't beat the view.

What a night! I have to thank Bon Appetit's Peter Kreuziger for hosting Tuesday's women's leadership event that was such a successful fund-raiser to support Dunedin Commissioner Heather Gracy's re-election campaign. The event was a hit because of Peter and the Bon Appetit staff. The food was fabulous and the service extraordinary. Peter, you are amazing. Thank you for helping us launch Dunedin Women Connect and thank you for supporting our community in such a positive way. Also, props to our super-panel of Kathy Carlson, Wendy Barmore, Margaret Word Burnside and Rene Johnson!

Nancy, thank you for coordinating with me the wonderful luncheon for Tampa Bay Newcomers last Tuesday. The room was lovely. Please thank the chef & kitchen staff for the excellent meals (both steak & salmon were cooked perfectly per all my feedback). Thank the servers for their professional & courteous service, especially Alberto heading up the great team & helping load my car afterwards.
Thanks again for a lovely luncheon experience at Bon Appétit!
I wish for you & yours a blessed & Happy Easter!

Dear Mr. Reidl,

I'm writing to thank you for the fine job your staff did for our family for our celebration on Sunday, January 3rd. Always a favorite destination, Bon Appetit was once again the perfect venue for our occasion.

Although I experienced some initial disappointment from a staff member
about cake availability, your manager Gus later provided the solution and the cake was a huge hit. It was just right for the occasion and for the honored guest. His call to me just before the event was very helpful, as it gave me a chance to confirm
details.

We really appreciated having your experienced waiter Bill taking care of our table. He remained unruffled as we moved about visiting with far-flung family
members and made everything smooth and enjoyable for our party of 10. We all had a great time.

Thanks to your staff for ensuring the success of our family celebration.

Sincerely,
Lyn Misiaszek

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all of you!!!

Nancy,

I want to thank you for your help in arranging our company party. The room was beautifully decorated and the food was great. The extra desserts were a nice surprise. The service was good and I especially thought our server (cannot remember her name right now, woman with short brown hair) was terrific. Everyone enjoyed the party.

Sarah, Ross Yacht Sales  December 12, 2015

Nancy,

Thank you very much again for all of your help last Monday (November 16, 2015).

Our guests had a fantastic time and this wouldn’t have been possible without the help of you and your great team.

Hope to see you again next year.

Hello Nancy,
I wanted to send you & Bon Appetit a HUGE thanks for providing the lobster mac-n-cheese for the Chamber Business After Hours last night!! It was a big hit and during the social hour several asked who had provided it, as well, with my welcome to the guests at the meeting portion Bon Appetit, and all food providers were, of course, thanked. It was great to see Ellen there too!
Looking forward to seeing you soon Nancy, Happy Friday! :)

Jessica Nelson  November 19, 2015

Thank you so much for your special attention to our client event on Saturday, September 12, 2015. We received many comments, all positive, about the setting, the food and the attention of your staff. Please extend our thank you to Alberto, Miguel and Eduardo, they were very professional.
We look forward to having another event in 2016 with you. I’ll be in touch.

Gentlemen,

My wife and I would like you both to know how highly we regard your restaurant and its employees.
We frequently come to the outdoor bar to just sit and enjoy a refreshing drink while talking with the other guests.
Our personal opinion it is the best, most enjoyable bar in all of Pinellas County.
We hope this letter brings some sense of pride to both of you for what you have created.

I was a bit hesitant when we first arrived as the restaurant was connected to Best Western. However, once inside the restaurant with wide open windows all around, linen tablecloths and a piano player, my concern evaporated. Ask to sit in the second room further away from the entrance. The food was excellent.... Bon Apetit grouper, gulf shrimp and Dover sole. We happen to be there as the sun set over the gulf. A perfect dinner experience.

This has been a Dunedin landmark since the early 60's. It is in a hotel and the decor is excellent as is the food. I had the Chicken Caesar salad and it was excellent and the price was reasonable. There is an excellent outside bar and table seating where you can catch great sunsets. This was recommended by a local as the best restaurant in Dunedin and I would think they are probably right.

This is a place I try to visit each year when I travel down to Clearwater. Lovely atmosphere, excellent service, delicious food.

Geri D  June 2, 2015

The food and environment was excellent. I kept returning every day!!! I liked your restaurant so much I wish I could've purchased a souvenir mug or a collectible.
