I really wanted to like this place, and most of the dishes we tried were pretty good--the salmon and chicken were good, but the trout was not!--but the atmosphere wasn't anything great. The noise from the kitchen was very loud and annoying, and though our hostess and waiter were both very nice, there was another server waiting on our table... More

After a nice tour around Jacksonville, we ventured into Bella Union for dinner. The garden setting was exceptional, comfortable, and the decades old Wisteria shaded us form the sun. Our waitress was very engaging and our drinks were served quickly. I had a large house salad which had plenty of toppings and my friend had chicken, which he said was... More

We got hungry while walking around Jacksonville and stepped into the first restaurant we came to. We were led out back to the nicest courtyard I have seen in quite some time. Maybe 2000 square foot (give or take) and completely covered by the "single" biggest wisteria I have ever seen. The food was good and the waitress very friendly... More

I go to Bella Union expecting nothing less than really good food. Last night I was served and paid for the worst meal I have ever had. Chicken pesto was the special I ordered...I was shocked at what arrived at our table. It was literally a cross between a school lunch and a really bad hospital food. If I ever... More

The Bella Union has been one of our favorite places to eat on special occasions or when people come from out of town. We went on a Wednesday evening, and found it busy but not over filled. I ordered an individual size pizza and side salad and my husband ordered Clam Linguine. Since pizza takes a half hour minimum, we... More

Great place to meet friends (in or outdoors). Good music, extensive menu! Always good service and Thursday's Ale and Oysters is lots of fun!

We live in this area and the Belle Union is our favorite place to go for dinner. Super pasta, great staff, and lovely setting, eat outside under the huge wysteria trees.

The great bar and back patio in nice weather are what make BU so great! Sunday Brunch is a long tradition and we always eat it in the bar, in fact in 25 yrs I don't think we have ever eaten in the main restaurant area. Friday nites are fun with live music. Then there is the back patio, huge... More
