C'est bon - Tasting France in Florida!

I once visited Aix-en-Provence in southern France, about 30 km north of Marseille, and serendipitously, here in Jacksonville, Florida, I seem to have discovered Aix anew - located in San Marco's Bistro AIX. General Manager Matt Mannick tells me that the restaurant is modeled on a similar French... read more

Went recently with my boyfriend to make sure we weren't missing out on awesome restaurants by always visiting Orsay. We left wishing we had gone to Orsay after all. Steak tartare, one of our favorite dishes, is served deconstructed, which we maybe should have realized or been told before, you know, finishing it, and realizing what looked like plate decoration...

Who said you can't have your cake and eat it to? Especially if the various courses are offered GLUTEN-FREE. A quick survey of the dinner menu finds a total of 19 les fruits de mer, hors d'oeuvres, soups, salads, and entrees GLUTEN-FREE. Bistro X offers their delicious foods EITHER WAY! Didn't I mention DELICIOUS? For a complete menu check out... More

I stopped with my mom for lunch. We had the chips with Stilton to start, can't go wrong there. I ordered the foie mousse to share. I wouldn't tell mom what it was until she tried it (maniacal laugh, maniacal laugh). I got a tuna burger special that was full of flavor, unfortunately from all the spices and not the... More

Came to Jax for a short visit. Stayed close by and walked to Bistro Aix. Had a really sweet experience with my boyfriend. We dined on charcuterie, fig and prosciutto pizza and chocolate mouse. Drank malbec and whiskey. Perfectly delicious. Waitstaff were friendly and helpful. Walked back to hotel perfectly satisfied.

In town for a short stay and found this gem a couple of blocks from our hotel. Started with a fantastic cheese and charcuterie plate, a flavorful cassoulet, fig and prosciutto pizza for entry's and a decadent chocolate gatauiex for dessert. Great service from Cory

We went here for dinner recently. We enjoyed the smoked tomato soup with creme fraiche (I think how that is spelt in French!) jus dip, followed by a wood fired pizza. They have a wonderful chef called chef Gray.

Service was slow, food is excellent but small portions. Noisy, thought it would be more romantic. Seating is too close to neighbor table. Ladies Room is beautiful.

Bistro Aix never disappoints, we went there on Valentine's Day and had another great meal. The French onion soup is amazing as are their steaks. They have such a variety of items on the menu and it is very reasonable for a nice restaurant. They have wood fire pizzas as well that are delicious. Beautiful atmosphere and great food.
