Enjoyable Evening

We decided to have nice dinner before going downtown for fireworks and Bistro AIX did not disappoint me. We shared the escargot appetizer. I thought was good but my boyfriend really didn't care for it. His loss. Lol. I had French onion soup and Cesar salad which was delicious. Next time I'll get a... read more

We had been to Bistro AIX with family three other visits and were always happy with the food and service. This time not so much. While our waiter John was exemplary, the rest left something it be desired. One of our party ordered the full portion of the fish of the day and said it was over cooked and a... More

We have never been disappointed by the food or service. The specials are creative and delicious. While it may be a little noisy at times the atmosphere, food and service compensates. We have brought many of our friends to the Bistro and they all enjoyed the experience.

We enjoyed a lovely Thursday evening here with a large party. The restaurant was loud so conversation was a little difficult. The staff was attentive and the food was delicious. The steak was flavorful and prepared correctly, the specials were fresh and attractively displayed. I would highly recommend this restaurant for small groups or couples. I would not recommend with...

Went on a Thursday night at 7:00 with a group of 16. Complimentary valet parking in the back, with direct access to the restaurant. Table was ready and waiting for us as soon as we arrived. Stephanie did a great job pacing the meal - the whole event took three hours but didn't seem slow. Nice wine selection. We ordered... More

Back to fabulous with chef Ian. Bar staff is attentive and professional - thanks Mike. Food is consistently good - get the ribeye for two. They best steak we've ever had. We go there all the time, but we're locals.

We had a great meal here. We tried French onion soup (unusual because the broth is creamy), croque Monsieur, fois gras, and fish sandwich. It was a very hot day, and we wished they had canvas umbrellas for shade, but iced tea and sitting by a wall of greenery helped us forget the heat. And the food was all amazing.... More

Had heard nothing but good things, but this was our first visit. Main dining room was booked and we had no reservation, but we were seated immediately in the spacious bar area and served promptly. Great cocktail and escargot appetizer, even better duck confit entree. Profiterole dessert a slight disappointment, but there are many choices. Service couldn't be improved, prices... More

We were just finishing our Jax Ale Trail at Aardwolf Brewing and wanted dinner somewhere that we could watch the Belmont. So we went around the corner to AIX and walked right up to the raw bar. Our foresome started with some North Point oysters, the smoked salmon platter, Fromagerie & Chartuerie and marinated olives. Sitting at the raw bar,... More

Bistro Aix is consistently among the best restaurants for lunch or dinner in the near-to-downtown area (San Marco). Lunch is an especially good deal, with great salads and sandwiches for under $15. Sorry only that the restaurant has hooked into the trend of herb-seasoned fries: here, the heavy dose of rosemary conflicts with the tastes of many of the other... More
