An delicious find!

Located downtown, this restaurant offered a delicious eclectic menu and great service. Our waitress recommended a new wine which I thoroughly enjoyed and everyone in our party liked their meals. I recommend.

I am disappointed to report that what could have been a good dinner with friends ended up being a frustrating evening where I actually had to walk back into the kitchen in order to get the food for our table.... Let me start at the beginning: we arrived at our reservation time and were seated promptly and given water. Then... More

This will teach me. We last dined here a little over 2 years ago, and adored it so much we came back the next night. So we thought we'd make a trip and take advantage of their New Year's Eve special. We were not aware that the ownership and chef had changed. Bad mistake. I should have read the reviews... More

I found this place from other reviews on Urbanspoon. I was there on early for dining at first I was the only one there which was a bonus. I had an opportunity to meet the executive chef of the restaurant and get a bit of history as well as an explanation on how my meal was prepared. I suspect on... More

I am from Seattle and had a stop over in St Joe. Based on the last few reviews I almost did not dine there. I am glad I did. The new owner-chef Andrew Clark is changing the name to Exchange Kitchen. My wait person, Alyssa was in tune with good suggestions. I started with the Seafood Puff Pie which was... More

I took my family and they said they could make something for my 5 year old, what they did not tell me was it was going to cost $12 for mac and cheese. I would go here again for... More

We used to love Bad Art Bistro. When it first came to town, it was a nice place to dine for special occasions and the food was incredible! Fast forward to the purchase by a new owner in May. There were 10 people in our party and not one person had a pleasant experience. Everything, from the salmon, to the... More

We based our choice of restaurant on very positive Yelp reviews. I'm sure those reviews were dead on; however, the restaurant changed hands recently. New ownership cannot excuse all of the problems in this place. The night we went, half the menu items were unavailable because, we were told, the owner was out of town for a week. If this... More

Great service and great atmosphere! They had a band on the patio when I was there and it was such a fun evening downtown! Will be back soon!

We decided to try this place again after we had heard about a change in management. What a difference this change made, for the better. The menu is slowly changing, so not all of the items were available, but the food they had to offer was perfect. The service was also exceptional. If you visit while the weather is nice,... More
