I had the best meal I remember in St. Augustine on my latest annual trip to the city. I'm a food conoisseur, and I must say this place was top flight. Our server could have worked in any 5-star restaurant or hotel. The setting was suitably luxurious, but not beautiful in my opinion. And 3 of the 4 things I tried were exceptional: the bread, with its wonderful oil/pesto/vinaigrette sauce; the strip steak with a wonderful peppercorn sauce; and the Bananas Foster. The bean soup was just pleasant to good. I had their "95 in 45" lunch menu, which they guarantee to serve in 45 minutes. It was $16, though I added $10 for the dessert.

I haven't tried Opus 39 yet, but I'd say 95 Cordova is clearly one of the best in town (I've eaten there once before). Formerly I would have put La Parisienne among the top ones as well, but I haven't eaten there in a while and another reviewer on this site says they've declined since losing their chef to Opus 39.

Just returned from St. Augustine, where we tried out 95 Cordova for lunch. The coconut chicken salad was stunningly good -- and a large portion, and Mom had the burger, which was about the size of a dessert plate and just as fabulous! Terrific service in a beautiful room...a nice respite from walking around the old city.
