I really enjoyed our outing at this restaurant. An upper class pizza joint with great pies, and an extensive beer & wine selection. I especially liked the heart of palm salad which had heart of palm marinated in wine and goat cheese. I've had heart of palm before and always thought eh... This was different, the wine really added something... More

Pele's is great for a nice dinner or happy hour. Happy hour is my favorite here since they also have food specials. They also have a late night happy hour. A must try in Jacksonville!

We all had a variety of foods and everything came fast. The pizza was well made and my son really enjoyed it. My wife had a salad with the raspberry vinaigrette and she didn't say a word the whole dish because she was so occupied with the food. I had eggs with sausage and bacon with Tuscan fries. Everything is... More

This is one of my favorite places in Jax. I absolutely love the wood fire pizzas, salad, and their beer and wine selection. Great location, service and menu.

I visited here for the first time with my son. The service was very slow. We both ordered pizza. Mine was just ok, but my son's pizza was burned on the outside crust. I don't think I would return.

We went to Pele's for an anniversary dinner. When we mentioned that to the server, there was no response, not even "Congrats". We weren't expecting freebies, or anything, but after 31 years, it's pretty special to us. We were glad we got there just before the end of Happy Hour. Even with special prices, my wife's drink was $6, and... More

Eclectic menu items. Very good service. Bloody Marys and Memosas were excellent. Neighborhood location recommended by our daughter. We will return.

On a beautiful Saturday afternoon the mister and I decided to give Pele's a try for the third time...although not as disappointing as the last visit, it still didn't impress. Many things can be overlooked when you have a great staff and the place has a good energy, however on this visit the best staff member was the hostess and... More

Pele's Woodfire aspires to greater things. It has the tools, a great location, square footage, a trained staff, good menu,...but it just isn't quite there yet. The menu is a little overpriced. The pizzza oven is well tended and produces a flavorful pie. Overall, Pele's has a bit of a way to go. The beer list is extensive so this... More
