  • "We have lived in Jacksonville for 14 years but had never been here. We loved it and will be back. My husband had the lamb and I had Veal Oscar. It was hard to choose because the menu what a lot of things we both liked. Just another reason to go back to try another dish...and the Key Lime Pie was good too Next time it will be the Chocolate mousse."

  • "My family and I have been dinning at Le Pavillon for over 15 years and it is always good. It is our favorite fine dining restaurant in all of St. Augustine, which is saying a lot. The Oysters Rockefeller and Rack of Lamb are too good to pass up. The fresh fish is always good as well and I am very particular when it comes to fish."

  • "The food is good but not fantastic. Price is reasonable. Only distraction was a guy at the next table on his cell phone, but he left shortly after, He obviously didn't see the sign to turn cell phones off when he came in."
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "Clean and friendly plenty of off street parking even with the carnival going on just down the street. Next time I will try the lamb but the prime rib was so large, found it necessary to ask for a too go box. Thanks for enjoyable dining experience."

  • "Food was good but nothing special for the price $$$. We will probably try this restaurant one more time (we live close by) to select different menu options but there are better choices in St Augustine."

  • "On this, my first visit to Le Pavillon, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food, and the quiet charm of the place. My companion had the lamb chops, and they were the very best I've ever had. Melted in your mouth, with flavor that was amazing and made me wish I had ordered them as well. Our server was prompt and firendly and the atmosphere was pleasant and quaint."

  • "Classic German/French menu well executed. Geriatric clientele but wait staff energy level more than compensates. Food was excellent."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "good food asalways, morefrequently go there for lunch or when its not so crowded--but the noise level in the front room where we were Saturday night was TOO loud. Server (who wasthe bartender--standing in) [apparently they were short staffed, was polite but seemed to be shouting--we could hear him from acrossthe room."

  • "Met all of our expectations. Would go again and recommend to others."

  • "For the last 20 years we make sure to eat here about twice a year. Its always a nice evening, They are not the trendiest place, but the food is solid and consistent. Our favorites are the duckling, rack of lamb and Bouillabaisse. They are a family owned restaurant and really make an effort to please. An entrée here is a full and satisfying dish and we also leave with plans to return."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Le Pavillon has always been a favorite. The schnitzel is the best in the Jacksonville area. Service is always good. The staff has been there for quite some time and they are very familiar with the menu. They are also accommodating in making any changes you request. This is an excellent restaurant"

  • "Took my in-laws there as part of their Christmas present. Had something for everyone. Grouper, Steak & German dishes all absolutely fabulous! Wine selections were very nice and plentiful. The bread that was served had just the hint of Parmesan cheese and was very tasty. Made many brownie points with my in-laws. They are comic back to try the lunch menu."
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "As far as the food, the salad was plain lettuce with dressing. Nothing else. The have the option of small portions if you order from 5-6. We did that. The portions are small, but that allows for dessert. The food was good. The restaurant was very welcoming and cozy. Maybe romantic if I was only on a date. But I was with my family of 6. The service was good. The staff was very friendly, and they were busy. I like that they took reservations. It was a good experience, but maybe a little average which would make me not come back again since there are so many other restaurant options to try in St Augustine. However, if someone asked me to go there again, I would not be disappointed."

  • "My wife had a filet and I ordered the bouillabaisse. After our soup and salad we waited quite a while for our order to be served. The server said it took a long time to cook the bouillabaisse because it was complicated. When the order finally arrived my wife's filet was cooked perfectly, but my entree was overcooked. The shrimp were very dry, the mussels were dry, the dungeness crab claws were stiff and were extremely hard to crack open and the meat came out shredded and very stringy. We brought this to the server's attention and he went back into the kitchen to talk to the chef. The manager did not come to the table to speak to us nor did they offer to not charge us for the entree. I don't think I would ever return again."
    Dined on 12/20/2013
  • "Le Pavillon was a real surprise in St. Augustine. The food was what one would expect from a good continental restaurant in any major US city. It was such a pleasant experience compared to the other restaurants in St. Augustine which were little more than 'one off' fast food outlets, pubs and Taco places. The violinist was amazing. Food good. Booze fairly priced. Service was fine."
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "I have been to LePavillon on number occasions for lunch so this was my first time for dinner. The restaurant had quite a few patrons and we were seated right away since we had reservations. We did have to wait some time for our orders to be taken but when we finally got our food it was delicious. We wanted to eat dinner and had tickets for the Holly Jolly Trolley but because our dinner took so long by the time we finished the trolley quit running which was around 9:00pm. We will know next time."

  • "the reviews that I found before making my reservation are true, food is excellent, instead of being listed as a french restaurant, it got more german dishes, and they kept the original european flavor, I will certainly go back on my next visit to St. Augustine."
    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "We enjoyed our dinner at the Le Pavillon. This restaurant is just north of the center of the historic district of St. Augustine, and we sat looking out at the street where the horse-drawn wagons filled with tourist passed by. We loved the romantic atmosphere of the dining room that was decorated for the Christmas season. We both ordered the bouillaisse which was filled with fresh seafood in the most delicious combination! Wonderful dish. The service was very good, and we appreciated not being rushed through our meal. We ended our delicious meal with cappucicino. I would definitely recommend this historic restaurant to anyone wanting a quiet, romantic dinner with an historic flair and delicious food at a moderate price."
