- Great as alwaysExcellentDined on 10/27/2014This trip my wife had the filet mignon, which was slightly better than ones she's had within the last couple of months at Ruth's Chris and The Capital Grill. I had the mayport fried shrimp, which were good - not the best shrimp I've ever had, but nicely prepared and good quality.Special Features:
- nice eveningJaguars12Dined on 10/27/2014we really enjoyed our dinner with our friend. It was quiet and perfect for conversation.Special Features:
- Overpriced and underwhelmedOpenTable Diner Since 2010VIPDined on 10/23/2014The food and ambience were OK. My martini was decent--and I'm picky about martinis. The wahoo and shrimp special was spicy, as promised, but lackluster. I've been to this restaurant once before and had a similar experience. I went back only because my dining companion chose it. All in all, it was not worth the price. Dinner for 2, including tip slightly over 20 percent, came to $94. For that kind of money, I have a right to expect much better.
- Great neighborood gemDippindeeVIPDined on 10/16/2014Wonderful food and ambiance! Will definitely go back!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fantastic as always...helloman1976Dined on 10/10/2014North Beach Bistro is amazing! Chef Dave is the man and this guy can cook like nobody I've ever met ever. Every dish is amazing and he puts a lot of time into his dishes. We go here frequently even though it's more on the expensive side, the food is just too good.Special Features:
- 2dogsDined on 9/30/2014After some good meals and some fair, this last one was awful. Gravy on shrimp! Tough steak with a lot of fat..awful.
- Best burger in townmomoftwoVIPDined on 9/23/2014We love the burgers! Great service and friendly smiles always.Special Features:
- Foodie ParadiseGrapeGuruDined on 9/19/2014Great place for lovers of food looking for something different!! Service was very good...we had 4 different appetizer selections and dessert - all was awesome and inspired. Not the normal fare yet didn't attempt to overly complicate; true bistro inspiration. Staff was properly attentive and knowledgeable. Have definitely added this to one of my go to favs. Although corkage fee is ridiculous $20, the wine list is such that if you bring your own good $10-$15 bottle of wine, you're still ahead.Special Features:

- Good brunchRonBDined on 8/24/2014We had a very good brunch, but it seems that 11:00 is a little late to open on a Sunday.Special Features:
- auburngirlDined on 8/23/2014We 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- great resturant, food lack flavor.alwayseating904Dined on 8/3/2014The place is great. Food lack flavor. Menu needs changing.Special Features:
- Great Food, long wait timenightowlDined on 8/1/2014The food was excellent, no complaints in that area. It just took forever to receive. We waited about 45 minutes for our main dish.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Usual good experiencelwolfsonVIPDined on 7/19/2014We had our usual good experience aat the North Beach BistroSpecial Features:
- Not worth the pricesomerandomchickDined on 7/19/2014Our 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.
- Pure YUM!CassidyDined on 7/15/2014I 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always Goodmj1773VIPDined on 7/14/2014This 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.Special Features:
- North Beach BistroMPOTVIPDined on 7/14/2014My 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.
- Solidly goodSuperbVIPDined on 7/13/2014My husband had boullaibaise which was good with salad. I had steak that was very good - tender, tasty w/asparagus. Overall a solidly good meal.Special Features:
- EnjoyableiluvgoodfoodandgoodwineVIPDined on 7/11/2014We 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Five-star food in a fun place!yumyumVIPDined on 7/10/2014North 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- DeliciousEricahill21Dined on 7/9/2014We ordered the chicken Milanese and the Kobe burger. Both were wonderful and reasonably priced. We will definitely return.Special Features:
- Kmb@stuartkmbstuartDined on 7/5/2014This 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.Special Features:

- Never going backJudgementalDined on 6/24/2014Mediocre 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.Special Features:
- excellent foodPennyVIPDined on 6/21/2014We 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!Special Features:
- North Beach "Fantastic" BistroTDCS7RDined on 6/21/2014Great 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.Special Features:
- made you feel specialCassidyDined on 6/20/2014You 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 anyoneSpecial Features:
- Disappointing Father's Day BrunchJustTheFactsDined on 6/15/2014The 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.
- BrunchjchjDined on 6/8/2014Brunch was very good. Love the bottomless Mimosa. I will go back for brunch and try it for other times ,typo.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Chef Seavey Does It RightchefmasterDined on 5/24/2014My favorite at this restaurant is the fried whole fish (snapper) presented on a bed of fried spinach. Delicious! Another favorite is the Kobe Burger with the fantastic frites and large onion rings.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
