Bistro Aix My wife and stopped by for lunch and we both liked it a lot. Parking lot is in back off a side street. Comfortable seating in a hip atmosphere with seating for about 50 people. Adjacent room is an upscale bar area. The activity in the open kitchen can be watched when seated at a bar overlooking the... More

This was a Sunday evening stop before the Johnny Mathis concert. Food was so-so and service was worse. We waited over 25 minutes between the appetizer and the main course. Very disappointed. Most likely will not go to Bistro AIX again.

Tucked away in the transition area between the south bank of Jacksonville and the quaint town center of San Marco is Bistro AIX. Reknown for ~15 years of presence as a standard of a great dining experience, we visited for our first time. Park in the back, there is a nice lot with plenty of spaces, this was a relief... More

I have been dining at Bistro Aix 2-3 times per year for many years. It has been our special occasion place and where we send people who are new to town. Saturday night we dined there with another couple and something was different. It has been a few months since we were there so maybe the changes are not new... More

This place gets good reviews but was disappointed. Trout was overcooked. Waiters were distracted by large party that came after us. Other waiter dropped hint not to bother our waiter.

Was in Jacksonville for a conference in early December and the hosts took a large group of us here for a welcoming dinner. Very busy on a weeknight, with a pleasant energetic atmosphere. Service was outstanding. Food was cooked perfectly (filet - rare) and was tasty. Wine list is extensive and the selected vintages presented and served properly. A little... More

Ate here with a few friends after a concert in Jacksonville. Most patrons were dressed nicely in suits and semi formal attire. We came in with t shirts, jeans, and hats. Were served pleasantly and treated well despite our alternative appearance. Lobster ravioli was delicious, its sauce rich and flavorful. The fresh raw oysters and cheeseburger were also well received... More
