Prior to going on our USA Roadtrip, I had read up on things to do and see in Jacksonville, which was one of the cities we were stopping in (for the Florida Country Superfest) and San Marco was one from the list. We dropped out here on a Sunda and were a little disappointed as there was very little open... More

Our family stopped through this charming part of Jacksonville on vacation. We were all very pleased with the attentiveness of the staff and the breadth of options on what is not a huge menu. All of the dishes were well crafted and presentation was beautiful. Definitely worth then detour!

We were in town for a long weekend and read others reviews of this restaurant and decided to try it. We were not disappointed! We started with the Marinated Olives appetizer. They were delicious. I had the Grilled Salmon Orzo salad. The salmon was seasoned very well and the orzo was very tasty. It was quite enjoyable. My husband had... More

We had lunch at this modern restaurant in the San Marco area of Jacksonville. We were on the way to the airport and found this restaurant while shopping. They have an excellent choice of craft beers (though one Stout beer was oddly served in a wine glass), a simple menu and competent servers. I had the Herbed Ricotta fig compote,... More

While on an escape weekend to lovely Jacksonville with another couple we had dinner after a day of sightseeing. Based on the recommendation of a local couple we dined at Taverna and we were not disappointed in any way. We ate at a sidewalk table in the waning hours of the day and thoroughly loved the warm atmosphere of the... More
