We had heard about The French Pantry from many of our friends. Everyone raved about the food but they also warned about be prepared for a wait. The wait was really long. The weather was very very hot and everyone was carrying umbrellas to ward off the direct sun. I don't think I will try to go again when the... More

A business partner recommended this restaurant and I was certainly glad they did. It was difficult to find as it is located between overgrown trees and the letters on the awning are not clearly defined, but rather faded out. The service is also undefined as most people order from the counter and then sit down and some of the staff... More

Large plates with complimentary bread all under $11 a plate. Don't let the exterior turn you away. The small atmosphere and shared seating makes for a unique experience. It is only open weekdays 11-2 so it does get busy but you will always get a seat

Had the Kobe burger and it was absolutely to die for. Juicy delicious kobe beef on a wonderful fresh baked bun and it goes so well with the sweet spread they put on it. Boyfriend had a turkey sandwhich with goat cheese. If you like goat cheese you must get this sandwhich!!!!! We got 3 desserts and shared it between... More

Great lunch at very reasonable prices. So worth the wait! I like the ambiance as well:) I rarely give five star but this place deserves it.

The food is fantastic. Going early you still may have to wait in line but it is worth it. A wide variety of sandwiches from turkey to shrimp are offered. The salads are huge. Do not pass up the desserts. Take one to go and then enjoy it for days since they are enormous. Beware this sandwich shop will ruin... More

This place was insanely busy, and yes there was a wait, but honestly the wait was worth it. Our food (Kobe burger and Shrimp Artichoke bruschetta) and ginormous dessert was phenomenal. Best food in Jacksonville for sure.

The French Pantry is located in a warehouse district and easy to miss except for the line out the door! We arrived 10 min after opening and still had to wait about 40 min before we were able to place our order and get seated. The dinning is set up family style so you dine with others but that is...

Waited a total of an hour to place order & pick up to go lunch. Frustrated by the lack of organization for to go order customers. The house salad with goat cheese is best eaten after 20 minutes so the goat cheese can melt all through out the lettuce. The Kobe burger is big enough for two to share. The... More
