Don't pass up dessert

Had a very nice meal here on my last night in Jacksonville. We started with the mussels and calamari, both good...the sauce that came with the calamari was fantastic. We also ordered the blue cheese chips, which were devoured by everyone else at the table. I do not like blue cheese, but that's just... read more

The quality of the food was not I was expecting. Service good, but food arrived cold, The chips with very little blue cheese sauce and not a very good wine list. Used to be better.

Four of us went here for an anniversary celebration and were delighted to see the quality had, overall, improved. In the past service and quality (raw chicken that was taken to the back, reheated and reserved) were, at best, sketchy. This was a much more positive experience. Service was spot-on.....attentive without hovering all while wearing a smile. The decor is... More

My first time back since the ownership change and have to say I like the menu changes and was most impressed with the variety of dishes they are now offering in "petite" portions. My favorites were the veal bone marrow "canoes" and the special of the day pizza but everything I tried was pretty good. We had great service and... More

My wife and I decided to try this new place due to the good things we had heard. We showed up just before a big thunderstorm. The restaurant was about half full. We were seated fairly quickly. Once seated, we saw our waiter for a minute where we gave our drink orders. It took a while to receive the drinks.... More

We went here for lunch and found it a little odd - a french name to the restaurant and yet all the meals seem to be Italian inspired. The atmosphere was very nice, upscale and comfortable. The staff are very attentive (a little too much at times - they fill your water glass even if take one sip out of... 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 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 bowl of soup it was that... More

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...
