“Wonderfully fresh food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

A local business suggested that we go here for lunch and we were so glad that we took their advise. The food was extremely fresh and they have a creative spin on salads and sandwiches.

“First Meal in St. Augustine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Our innkeeper recommended the Floridian - very fresh ingredients and much better than I was anticipating just based on the menu. The squash and zucchini that came with my shrimp and grits tasted like summer!!! Would definitely make a return visit here.

“Great Dinner with my daughter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Dined here during the Gentlemen of the Road tour. Our host Cyndi from the Bed and Breakfast, Cedar House Inn recommended this restaurant and we loved it! The food was fresh and full of flavor. The ambiance is delightful and eclectic. The staff were friendly and knowledgable of the menu and how each entree is prepared. The portions are huge for just two girls, next time we would share a appetizer, entree and dessert! The desserts are wonderful and so yummy! Try it you'll be delighted.,

“Friendly service and fabulous food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

The Floridian is a very cool restaurant -- a little beachy and little bit hipster. We tried several items on the menu and all were delicious. The flounder special with a peach salsa over jasmine rice was fantastic. The shrimp and grits were wonderful -- more like grits meet cornbread. Service was friendly and helpful.
