We keep bringing friends here and we all keep loving it.

This is a very nice, quiet restaurant that has really good service and really good food. What more can you ask for? Well, how about a nice wine list at reasonable prices. WE brought friends here so we got to try a lot. What we tried that was good: the French Onion soup and the New England seafood... read more

Had a late dinner after celebrating a friend's 80th birthday party and was able to be seated easily, ordered the pan seared Mahi with a rice, green beans and two split carrots. It was all very good (except the carrots were tough, could not even cut them with a knife, although it was not a steak knife). All in all... More

When we eat here, we know we can expect a wonderful meal. You can choose to be seated in the bar area, with it's more lively vibe, or the main dining room, which is calm and nicely adorned with lovely artwork throughout. If you have a special dish in mind, the owner/chef will go out of his way to accommodate... More

We met here for lunch last weekend. We had a reservation for ten. When we got there at 11 am the place was rather empty. Since this was our first time here I thought I might have picked the wrong place. I was wrong. Both the food and the service were great. I will go back here for brunch or... More

Always a good time and great food. And the wine selection isn't also a win. They often have live music in the bar area as well.

We have eaten here almost every week for quite a few months. The menu and food is terrific. Interesting and a little different from your usual fare. The service is also excellent. Besides fantastic seafood dishes they ahave an excellent Kobe Beef Hamburger with all the trimmings.

I moved to Jacksonville 6 years ago my husband and I love it. There is a more casual bar section or the nice more formal dining area. We go the the casual side for lunch and the dining area for dinner. It is very clean, the staff are polite and efficient. This is by far my favorite place for date... More

Had dinner in April 2015 - salad, entrees, and bread were all excellent. There were only a few guests there on a Sunday evening, so not sure why it is not more popular/busy. The only drawback was that the items were a bit on the pricey side, but the food was very good. Good atmosphere.

Took my parents who are newly resident to Atlantic Beach. Great little Bistro/Bar in Atlantic Beach. Great EATS...Happy Hour specials out of this world! It was a low traffic moment (3pm weekday) but the food was good and we had a great time!
