We could not have been happier with our experience!!
We had been to Bon Appetit last December for a birthday dinner and were very impressed with the food, service and atmosphere there. When we were deciding on a venue for our downsized wedding, Bon Appetit is who Theresa and I settled on quickly.Sent on 10/28/2020
Theresa talked to Nancy Williams and viewed the available venues that BA offered. Even once we said that we didn’t want to use one of the upstairs rooms, having decided on just an intimate family dinner, Nancy worked with us to set up the perfect ceremony.
On the day of our ceremony, Nancy had a beautifully decorated arch set up for us outside, right on the water. There were water and champagne stations set up, and our host Alberto kept the glasses full, even having non-alcoholic champagne available for the guests, if they so chose. The weather, location and views were perfect!
After the ceremony, we all went inside to our table, and immediately, our waiter Alessandro, began to take our drink orders. They arrived, and we all ordered. As we found previously, the food at Bon Appetit was amazing. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed what they ordered. Conversation was easy, even though the piano was being played (quite well) right at the end of our table. The volume was perfect. Alessandro was extremely attentive without being overbearing, and Nancy checked in with me several times to make sure that everything was as expected. It was. All in all, a perfect evening.
I have no doubt that Nancy and her staff will put the same care and pride into your event as well. Do yourself a favor, and give Bon Appetit in Dunedin consideration for your wedding or family event. I can’t see you being anything less than extremely pleased with how it turns out!

Nancy and Bon Appetit went above and beyond with service and detail. Food was delicious and the service was great. I even caught one of the servers dancing at one point. We had a lot of fun and glad they did too😃Sent on 09/28/2020

Above & Beyond Expectations
Absolutely Amazing!!! We are so thankful to have booked our wedding venue at Bon Appetit, they exceeded every expectation. They were always great at communication, Leslie & Nancy would answer every phone call and email within the HOUR and always put our minds at ease with any questions we had. The staff were all so friendly during our reception, making it feel effortless and so enjoyable. The venue was decorated beautifully, they paid attention to every detail, and could tell they treated it with the most importance. Our family raved about how delicious the food was, and how courteous the bartenders were. The list goes on & on... I would recommend Bon Appetit to anyone and know that they will go above & beyond!Sent on 03/24/2020

Laid back Dunedin wedding
We had a small casual wedding at Bon Appetit. We got married at the Point and didn’t rent out the ballroom, just had 7 tables in the semi private room. The view was beautiful at sunset and we had our first dance, speeches, and cocktail hour outside before heading to our tables. It was very affordable and just perfect for us and our laid back vision! Nancy was SO helpful all along the way and on our special day! Highly recommend!Sent on 10/21/2019

The perfect venue and a staff that truly cares
I can't say enough great things about our experience. Nancy and Leslie were extremely helpful and knowledgeable and helped put our mind at ease about planning a wedding. They went out of their way to accommodate us and help make our wedding perfect.Sent on 04/21/2019
The food was delicious! We had some very hard to please guests and all of them (kids and adults) were extremely complimentary. No one could believe that it was wedding food! We also opted to do a desert buffet instead of a traditional cake. They did desert shooters, cookies, and all kinds of goodies which the guests raved about.
You could tell that the entire staff cared about the wedding. The waiters, after learning that some of the guests were vegetarian, went and got additional vegetarian hors d'oeuvres to bring to them, and remembered they were vegetarian for the rest of the night. They also made sure that a sampling of hors d'oeuvres were waiting for us when we returned from taking pictures during the cocktail hour. When finding out that we were headed down to take additional pictures at sunset while the guests were getting food from the buffet, they made up our plates for us so dinner would be waiting when we got back. Have your wedding here! It was the perfect combination of being incredibly magical and unreal and everything we wanted it to be, while also feeling like we were being taken care of by family members who cared so much about everyone there.

Best day of our lives!
My husband and I were married at Bon Appetit this past July. I am extremely satisfied with our choice to host our wedding there. The staff were all so helpful, kind, and accommodating. Even when I had to reschedule the date because my husband had military obligations they worked with me and we found a solution. Our ceremony was held on their private dock right over the water and our reception inside. Both areas were decorated beautifully thanks to the talented event planners there. The food and appetizers were also sooo delicious! Some friends of mine and still talking about the jalapeño poppers :)Sent on 09/27/2019
Overall I couldn’t be happier that I chose Bon Appetit for our wedding!
Bon Appetit Weddings's reply:OMG, Maggie! Those pictures you sent are priceless. Thank you so such for the wonderful review. You are the one who envisioned your special day, we just helped it come together. ; - )

A Magical Day!
Nancy and her team at Bon Appetit exceeded our expectations! They were incredibly helpful, experienced, and friendly - they truly brought our vision to life! Our wedding day ran so smoothly and was more beautiful than we could have imagined! Nancy really took time to listen to our vision and did everything in her power to make sure our day was perfect, including watching the weather reports and ordering additional items needed the day before the event due to adverse weather conditions to ensure everything was perfect!Sent on 01/14/2019
The team was flexible with customizing our menu and packages to fit exactly what we were looking for and was very reasonable regarding price and time frame. Nancy ran the show for us and made our wedding day relaxing and fun for us - we didn't have to worry about a thing.
We are so grateful for the excellent service we received and hope to host future events here!

Would recommend to anyone for any occasion!
My wife and I had our wedding reception dinner here on November 2, 2018. It was fantastic. From the food to the service to the ambiance, I have not one single complaint. It could not have been better in any way. They were even able to accommodate us an hour early, because we were finished earlier than we thought due to bad weather. I can't say enough wonderful things about this venue.Sent on 11/21/2018

We absolutely loved working with Nancy at Bon Appetit! Our night was absolutely perfect. The food was amazing, the view was beautiful, and everything was set up perfectly. We got married on August 4th, so it was great to be able to have a beautiful wedding on the water without having to be outside! I highly recommend having your wedding here!Sent on 08/18/2018

Jeannel · Married on 06/22/2018
Nancy was very helpful though the entire planning process. They took care of the entire night from the set up to the clean up. There are so many options to choose from colors of decor to food served. The decor was beautiful and the service was above and beyond expectations. They also were very flexible with my last minute changes. I would highly recommend using Bon Appetit. It was like a country club experience right on the water.Sent on 07/02/2018

I loved having my reception here! It’s so beautiful, and the food was delicious! Everyone said they absolutely loved it... Nancy was extremely helpful thru the whole process. The ONLY thing I wish I was told, was to bring Tupperware for leftovers! We both barely ate, and I know there was a ton of food leftover that went to waste. I didn’t know we could have done that, and we’ve both said several times since we wish we had known!Sent on 02/28/2018
Morgan · Married on 01/27/2018
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Nancy and the staff at Bon Appetit. Our wedding was absolutely perfect, from the menu to the taste of the food, to the bar tenders, the set-up and break down. I knew I was in good hands, but I never worried about a thing the day of our wedding. Everything flowed so smoothly, it was unforgettable and beautiful!!Sent on 02/19/2018

Absolutely incredible!!! My husband, my family, friends and myself absolutely loved this venue! The staff was so kind and helpful! The food delicious! I couldn’t have asked for more! Everything was perfect! The staff went above and beyond my expectations carrying my plate, bringing me drinks, the bartender even had a wet cloth ready for me when I had cake smashed in my face! I seriously felt like a princess for the day! Of course the view is beautiful!!!! You can have a beautiful space but that means nothing without the hospitality and kindness of the banquet staff! Awesome!!!Sent on 11/24/2017

Booking from out of state is no easy feat. However, once my fiancé found Bon Appetit all my fears of finding the right place, with all the bells and whistles and still meeting our budget expectations were gone! Their website gave all the information we needed to make our decision. Pricing, what's included, the food choices, everything was right there in order to not wait a day or two to possibly hear back from a "contact us" email. We originally planned on a May 2017 wedding however, with an illness in our family, the team at Bon Appetit gave me all the available dates with in February and made it happen! The food was outstanding!! The view was absolutely breathtaking and the perfect back drop, with the sunset views shinning through the floor to ceiling windows. If you're an original Florida girl like me, that wants a water view (but with out the sand ;)) THIS is your place! They have everything you could want, need and more! Bon Appetit was the perfect place for the most intimate, romantic and best party of our lives!Sent on 03/07/2017

Sandra · Married on 05/21/2016
Perfect venue! We found Nancy incredibly helpful, accessible, professional with years of experience. Being that we both work, Nancy was able to meet with us at times that worked best for us. She offered suggestions and vendors when asked but was also all about us creating our dream day. The view from the Crystal Ballroom was lovely for our wedding and pictures. The food was excellent as was the service both kitchen and bar. We loved that we could get married in one room and then just moved to the other side of the room for our reception with amazing value too! Our out of town guests loved the location of the wedding and the adjacent Best Western where the resided. Our family took advantage of the short walk to downtown Dunedin where they could shop and experience the many restaurants.Sent on 01/10/2017

We had an incredible reception at Bon Apetit!! Our guests loved the venue and the incredible food. Service was amazing! We felt like we didn't have to worry about anything but just enjoy our big day! Staff made a point to sit us down and give us a few minutes to eat as wedding days wisk you away for fun and pictures! We loved Nancy from the day we met her! She set up the room perfectly with our decorations and made it more than we could have ever dreamed!Sent on 05/27/2016

WOW. Our rehearsal dinner was classier and more gorgeous than I could have ever imagined. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law planned the whole thing from out-of-town, and from what I heard Bon Appetit was extremely professional and easy to work with. We booked the second floor which was spacious and has a very big "WOW" factor when guests walk in as the huge windows on every wall facing the water provide a stunning view of the bay. It couldn't have been more beautiful. The appetizers and dinner was DELICIOUS...and because my husband and I barely had a chance to try the appetizers, Bon Appetit surprised us by bringing out two of each to our table!! They were so kind and accommodating in every way that night. We also booked a pianist to play during the cocktail hour who provided a very classy ambiance as well. I can't think of a single suggestion to make it better. It was an absolutely gorgeous event!Sent on 05/23/2016

I worked with Nancy on my April 2015 wedding and she was incredible. I had very intricate plans and she made sure they were executed flawlessly. The venue was GORGEOUS and everyone raved about the food (which at most weddings doesn't happen) so we were thrilled. Our wedding reception was first class all the way, and we loved every second of it.Sent on 11/19/2015
