waterfront dining naples

Just joined, sorry for the late recommendation but for future Naples visitors... The Dock Restaurant has great food and great ambiance. Head down to Tin City, anywhere there, you can't go wrong.
Hope you had a great trip!
Happy New Year!

Naples/Estero Area - Christmas Day

I just joined so I'm sorry for the late recommendation, but for the future, PATE'S is the place! We went there last christmas, and had a wonderful experience! They have the best Prime Rib in town! You do have to make reservations though.
Hope you had a wonderful time!
Happy New Year!

Naples Area -Restaurant recommendations during Christmas-New Years holidays

I have lived in Naples for 24 years and I hope this helps...

a) Italian: In the Mercato their is an italian restaurant called BRAVO! I have only been once but, we had the best experience and the food was very tasty. Location-Vanderbilt Beach Road/US 41 about 5 minutes away from the Ritz.
b)Steak: We just had the best filet and lobster tail about 4 months ago at Flemings! the meat just melted in our mouths! It is very pricey but well worth it! Location-across from the Mercato, about 5 minutes away from the Ritz OR PATE'S has the best Prime Rib in town! they also do seafood! PATE'S is located on Tamiami Trail about 15 minutes away from the Ritz. Right after Banyan Blvd in the Holiday Inn of Naples
c)Seafood: In the Mercato they just opened up Mc Cormick and Schmick's. I have not been there yet but I've heard good things. And it's only a few minutes away from the Ritz. You have a lot of options being in that area!
d)Mexican: I am a die hard fan of La Bamba's on Pine ridge road in the Bed Bath and Beyond Plaza, Airport Pulling Road and Pine ridge Road, they have great food and even better Margarita's!!!!
e)Lunch: Definitely Jason's Deli!!!! It is Casual and Soooooo much better than Mel's!!! They have a fresh salad bar, soup, sandwiches, pasta, giant baked potatoes and much more! It is a must do!
f)?
g)Breakfast: First Watch! Go North on Tamiami Trail and it is in the plaza right before Immokalee Rd. Pier 1 Imports and PF Changs is in the same plaza.
h) ? Since it is "season" you will want to make reservations for: PATE'S, Flemings and Mc Cormick's. Im sure you'll be fine with the other ones.

Have a great trip, and let us know how your experiences were!
Happy New Year!
