  • "We had a very good brunch, but it seems that 11:00 is a little late to open on a Sunday."
    Dined on 8/24/2014
  • "We booked through Open Table. Our only option for a Saturday night was 4p. We got there and dinner isn't even served til 5 so we were disappointed. Had to sit in the bar and that was ok. menu was limited. we will try it again for dinner sometime and hopefully the Open Table website will be more current."

  • "The food was excellent, no complaints in that area. It just took forever to receive. We waited about 45 minutes for our main dish."

    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Our server was pretty clueless, didn't remember to bring things she said she would "be right back" with. The wait for each course was very long. My meal was fair at best - the fish was not fresh (and I'm not picky), and was also rather bland (despite my initial concern that it would be too spicy! hah!). My husband's fish (different selection) was also not fresh. My daughter's steak was undercooked. since we waited so long for our meals, we were reluctant to send them back. I ate the side dishes, which were pretty good."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "I rarely order specials on a menu but ordered the surf and turf and the demi glade on the steak was rich and divine on the tongue with just the wonderful notes of garlic and rosemary grilled on the steak. The appetizer of Fried Green Tomatoes with the sharp bite of the datil pepper vinegerette was WOW! Only note that was off was the strawberry shortcake creme brûlée and while the taste was wonderful the texture on the palate was strange."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "This restaurant does not get all of the attention of the other fine establishments in the Atlantic Beach area but the food compares to anyone. The chef is consistently creative with the specials and the regular menu items are outstanding. Pasta dishes are especially good as are the soups. Always good service as well. We have never had a less than outstanding meal experience here."

  • "My wife and went to dinner there. My steak was tough and over cooked. My shrimp were dry. My wife's $30 piece of grouper was dry and over cooked. I will not return."

  • "My husband had boullaibaise which was good with salad. I had steak that was very good - tender, tasty w/asparagus. Overall a solidly good meal."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "We had really enjoyed our last meal here in the dining room on a previous Friday night but we wanted to hear the live music so we sat in the bar. The food was just as good, it was just louder as all seats were taken at the bar and high top tables. The music was enjoyable and I'm not sure why they don't pipe it into the dining room so it can be enjoyed by all. We are already talking about when we will return."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "North Beach Bistro never disappoints. The food is exceptionally fresh and well-presented, and the chef is happy to accommodate special requests. One of my pet peeves, running out of water, never happens here because they are clued in and service-oriented. We LOVE NBB! No one has a better wedge salad!"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "We ordered the chicken Milanese and the Kobe burger. Both were wonderful and reasonably priced. We will definitely return."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "This place is amazing. We had Christina for our waitress and she couldn't have been any better. Katie went above and beyond. She alone would make us go back. And the food- outstanding. All four of us cleaned out plates. A five-star experience."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • " Mediocre food. Server treated us like we were a plague. She took one look at us and assumed we won't tip well so gave us poor service. Walked away while we were talking to her. Made no eye contact our smiled. We usually tip between 20-25%. She got the base of 15% out of sure generosity. Ribeye Steak was folded at the corners like a cheap steak, very thin and no flavor."

  • "We were delighted with the delicious meal we had at North Beach Bistro. Do not be turned off because it is in a shopping center....fabulous find for us!"

  • "Great food, superb service, really enjoyed the pace of the meal. Everything from the fried green tomatoes appetizer with warm bacon vinaigrette dressing to the the peach bread pudding desert were expertly prepared. My dining partner had the Scottish Salmon entree and loved it, savory and flavorful. I had the pork loin special as the waiter explained; breakfast lunch and dinner as it was made up of pork loin, andouille sausage and bacon smothered with a wonderful white gravy and sautéed collard greens like I have never had, delicious. Our waiter, Mark had a great command of the menu and showed up at our table at all the right times, and kept the pace of courses moving expertly. Pleasant & serene, with soft pop&live music Fridays & Saturdays."

  • "You are greeted warmly and taken to a table promptly into a warm dark wood leave your troubles at the door. I needed a well lit table and I was plead by the windows but that made is so that I could not see the wonderful ballet of the working kitchen that is quite a scene to watch. I had the shrimp and grits that had a good kick to it. The beef short ribs were so tender you could cut with a fork and the risotto could have been just a tad creamier but the flavor was divine. Dessert! GA Peach Bread Pudding 2 people ate and there were leftovers! Orange Creme brulee was excellent also but I won't share it sweet lusciousness with anyone"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "The brunch selection was very limited but that was not the main problem. Had the items that were available been tasty the small selection would not have been an issue. The food was mediocre (and that is being generous). Nothing was horrible but nothing was delicious. The peel and eat shrimp were small and had a weird consistency. Most of the fare was pleasing to the eye but it lacked flavor of any kind, almost like it was devoid of any seasoning. The desserts were not good as well. The "Bottomless Mimosa's" were warm and served from an old looking plastic water pitcher. Not the nice Father's Day brunch I expected. For the price it was not a good deal and definitely not a good memory."

  • "Brunch was very good. Love the bottomless Mimosa. I will go back for brunch and try it for other times ,typo."

  • "My husband celebrated his 40th birthday this past weekend and I made reservations at North Beach for the occasion. I had planned on a larger party but had to change our reservation at the last minute and they were so accommodating. I ordered a birthday cake and wanted it to be a surprise and my mom dropped it off before dinner and they kept it refrigerated for us. We were REALLY late to dinner, almost 30 minutes, and my best friend arrived on time and decorated our table. It was a great atmosphere, our server was super nice and so accommodating. We didn't even realize we were the last table in the restaurant at the end of the night. The food was great, we weren't rushed or pushed out the door even though they were closing. Great place!"

  • "The atmosphere and food were great. We were very disappointed in there not being an ounce of recognition of the reason we chose the restaurant for our special anniversary night. We noted within the reservation we were out to celebrate an anniversary and even went and reiterated this to the hostess after our appetizers and the server not mentioning anything. However, neither the hostess nor server even mentioned / congratulated us. This was very disappointing as we'd had a much different experience at this restaurant before. Looks like next celebration we'll have to go elsewhere."
