Gorgeous Waterfront Views, Incredible Service and Delicious Food are a few reasons why…Bon Appétit Restaurant in Dunedin, FL, Named One of the 100 Most Scenic Restaurants in America; Wins 2016, 2017 & 2019 OpenTable Award!

We did it AGAIN! Bon Appétit is pleased to announce that we’ve been named one of the 100 Most Scenic Restaurants in America for a third time by OpenTable diners.

We’re proud to be one of four Tampa Bay area restaurants to be chosen and send our congratulations to Columbia Restaurant on Sand Key in Clearwater, FL, Salt Rock Grill in Indian Rocks Beach, FL, and Ulele in Tampa, FL. It is also a huge honor to be listed among popular restaurants from across the country including, Catch LA in West Hollywood, CA, Beach House Restaurant in Kauai, HI and the River Cafe in Brooklyn, NY.

It’s no secret (to our guests anyway) that our waterfront view is pretty spectacular. Without any obstructions to block the view, our guests can fully appreciate the surrounding environment and experience what the Florida lifestyle is all about…relaxing and enjoying life!

“There really isn’t a better way to end the day than watching the sunset over Florida’s pristine and natural landscape. Our unique waterfront location has made Bon Appétit Restaurant a favorite dining and wedding destination for Tampa Bay locals and visitors for over 40 years! More than 6 million guests have joined us from all over the world to take in the beauty and calm of the relaxing view of St. Joseph Sound while enjoying a casual, yet fine dining experience that is second to none. We’re absolutely thrilled that our restaurant in quaint Dunedin, FL has been recognized by OpenTable diners, and that Bon Appétit Restaurant has received this honor for 2016,” added Restaurant Manager, Thomas Riedl.

Aside from our incredible scenic views, Bon Appétit Restaurant is also grateful for all the rave reviews we’ve received from our OpenTable guests. From 5 stars on our fresh seafood and specialty dishes to praises on our service and hospitality, we’re humbled by all the memories we’ve had the honor of being part of for the last 43 years. It is because of great reviews that OpenTable took notice and chose us from a group of more than 30,000 restaurants across the country for this incredible award.

Thank you to all our guests who have helped Bon Appétit Restaurant earn this accolade in Dunedin, FL and the greater Tampa Bay area. To any returning guests, we hope to see you again soon! And if you’ve never visited us before…now that the word is out, better make your reservation and come check out our award winning waterfront view for yourself!

After our 2016 award, we received a congratulatory letter from our then Senator Jack Latvala:

Former Senator Jack Latvala shared his congratulations on our 2016 award from OpenTable and recognized Bon Appétit as a Dunedin landmark in a letter to our founders and staff.
