Brunch at Biscotti's
Brunch is great at Biscotti's, mainly because in addition to special brunch items, they offer their regular menu too. And great wine by the glass.

I really enjoyed my time at biscottis. The salads were excellent and the service great. I really appreciate there being a late night spot with fresh quality food.

Biscotti's is the place to
Biscotti's is the place to go for any occasion. Food is always outstanding. Service is always top notch. It's a go-to place for a special occasion, for a good meal, or just for wine and dessert. I've never been disappointed there. Weekly specials are always available and the pizza's are always good. One note, the floors are very slick for anyone in heels - watch your step inside.

Went for mid-week business
Went for mid-week business lunch. Requested and was seated in quieter area. Service staff were friendly and prompt. Varied lunch menu and food was delicious, as always. Will continue to use Biscotti's for future meetings.

We eat here all the time, but this past Saturday night, was probaly one of our favorite times! The food is always good, but that night we tried some of the new specials, and it was excellent!!! I had the ancho pork chop w/ apple glaze and my husband had the carne asada pizza! Our server, Charlotte, was great! Hopefully we'll get her again!

Service, food, and experience
Service, food, and experience was excellent. I've only eaten at Biscotti's once before, but this time I went there on a date and was much more impressed. The service is professional and well-trained. I was given the sense that the servers are the owners and can literally meet any request you make, but also treat you with respect and honesty, like family. The dessert was outstanding of course- we followed our server's recommendation and chose the Tropical Cake. Too good to be true. I will definitely eat here again. The only thing I can remember being somewhat strange was their tile choice on the floor. It is uneven and clearly not anticipating women with heals. It's like a Mexican tile design I believe; nevertheless it won't dissuade me.

I've been here a few times
I've been here a few times and I've never been disappointed. The open faced meatloaf sandwich is amazing. The dessert selection is extensive. I have never left Biscottis not satisfied.

I've had their desserts before, but this was my first time dining at the restaurant. Wow. Their menu is a bit lighter than most (salads and sandwiches). I had the portobello mushroom sandwich (with spinach, blue cheese, and BACON) and sweet potato fries. It was amazing. I loved that when I asked if they had a dessert menu, our waitress said "No, I get to give you the tour." Tour, indeed. What an amazing selection of desserts, each one looking more delicious than the last.
5/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always a winner
We've been to Bicotti's several times, and we're never disappointed. Great food and service!
5/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was such a great find. My husband and I went two days in a row. The dessert selection is beyond compare. The croissant bread pudding is the best bread pudding I've ever had. Perfect place for coffee and dessert or a light meal.
5/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
I could come eat at Biscottis everyday and still find something new and amazing to eat. Plus the service is always stellar. From packing up our desserts to getting us to go drinks. Best restuarant in Jacksonville!

Great food, amazing desserts
Our dinner consisted of a risotto and a steak filet with potatoes and vegetables (and dessert). The food was excellent and the price point for the quality made it an excellent value. While the food and atmosphere are a notch below a true 'fine dining' experience, both entrees were prepared with skill and the steak filet was a perfect medium. Presentation was also nice.
The desserts alone make this place worth the trip. All four desserts ordered were some of the all-time best I've ever tasted, and everything in the display case looked nothing short of mouth-watering.
Our server took excellent care of us, but was perhaps a trifle too attentive for casual dining.
Overall a delicious, upper-end casual dining experience with great desserts.
5/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had a coworker recommend this place and after researching it and reading the reviews, I decided to take my wife there. I must ay this place lived up to its billing! My wife had the Salmon BLT and I had the Skirt steak salad and we shared. WOW. Then we TRIED to pick our deserts, they all looked so good, this a much more daunting task than it first seemed. If I had to pick one bad thing out, and I would really be nit picking, is that our server when asked how big the Salmon BLT was, was less then helpful by saying "its a normal sandwich size" Its plenty big enough to share by the way. But he more than redeemed himself throughout the rest of the evening. I will definitely be back and I strongly recommend this restaurant.

Great birthday dinner
We went for a birthday dinner for 9. Server was great and the food was outstanding. We are locals and will continue to go to Biscottis.

As always - Biscotti's never
As always - Biscotti's never disappoints. Been going here for years for special ocasions and will definitely continue to!

Great lunch spot!
We went to celebrate a co-worker's birthday - it was a great choice! We all enjoyed our meals and the variety was perfect. Everyone enjoyed a dessert as well - awesome experience!
6/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always the best!
Biscotti's never fails to impress. Whether you go for Sunday brunch, get a gourmet sandwich for lunch, a perfect pizza, or a beautiful dessert and coffee, you will never be disappointed. The food is outstanding, the wait staff is professional and knowledgeable, and the ambiance can't be beaten. If you're looking for the best food in Jacksonville, go here!

1st visit - not the last...
Great experience at Biscottis for Sunday brunch. In my top 2 corned beef hash - many (most?) places overdo the potatoes and turn what should be CB hash into Potato hash and that was definitely not the case here. Small diced potatoes, plentiful corned beef and the right mix of accoutrement and served with eggs over easy and marbled rye toast - excellent. Wife had the vegetarian omelet and subbed in Goat Cheese - also excellent. Great coffee, good mimosas and attentive service.
6/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
We will definitely be back. The pasta salad was wonderful and the desserts were probably the best I have ever tasted.

Father's Day Brunch
Biscotti's was delicious as always. We had not been in a while and decided to go for father's day and it didn't disappoint . I ate the creme brulee french toast with cheese grits and a mimosa. The frnche toast. Was crispy on the outside and creamy in the center. Yummy! My husband had a breakfast burrito and it was delicious as well. Good local brews and more at the bar if dining for lunch or dinner. Definitely recommend.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
I still love this place after 8 years. Never get tired
6/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Biscotti's is consistently a high quality experience from the food to the service to the atmosphere. The daily specials are always delicious and creative and the regular menu is a collection of enduring favorites and I am pretty sure that you can't beat them for desserts! You can't miss with this place, we are so fortunate to have them in the neighborhood.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Entrees and Desserts
The food was fantastic, and my husband and I are PICKY. The normal menu consists of salads and sandwhiches, but Biscotti's was offering a special entree menu the night we went. All the food was absolutely fantastic. Portions on the entree were perfect, the appetizer was delicious but we wanted MORE. The desserts were out of this world. I rated ambience at a 4 due to the table layout. The restaurant had a great vibe, loved the decor, but the tables were a bit crammed together and the noise level was high due to concrete floors and brick walls.
We look forward to going again!
7/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was only the 2nd time I've actually eaten at Biscotti's although my company regularly uses their catering services. The food and service were excellent -- my partner was especially impressed with the steak he had. He was a little hesitant to order it since Biscotti's is not a "steak specialty" place, but I assured him they had an excellent reputation. He was not disappointed! My Thai chicken salad was yummy, too, but I already knew it would be -- it's a favorite for company functions.
PS: be sure to save room for dessert!
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great brunch! Will Dine Again
Finally had the pleasure of meeting some of my girlfriends at Biscotti's for a Sunday Brunch. We each had peach bellinis and sangria. Both were excellent. I had a vegetable omelet with potatoes and turkey sausage and my friends had their creme brulee french toast which look amazing! Didn't get a chance to try their dessert but I heard that's what they are known for. One of the owners assisted us and asked how everything was which was great! I definitely will be back :)
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and service were
The food and service were excellent as always. One a those wonderful places where you can consistently count on high standards of service and excellent food. We invited friends who had never been and they fell in love with their experience. Baked Brie was excellent, the open faced meatloaf sandwich amazing, Spanish chorizo pizza, and of course the desserts, tropical cake, German chocolate cake, and a lovely croissant and apple compote served warm with ice cream. Delicious to the last morsel.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was a great choice for a recent family member's birthday brunch. Great Bloody Mary's followed by interesting entrees.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Biscottis is one of my favorite places to dine. It always has great food and excellent service. Most of the servers have been there for years. Matt, one of my favorite servers, has been there for 15 years. He has always been great. Love the different nightly specials. Good place to dine for lunch with the girls, dinner with your special one, or Sunday brunch with the family.
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've been to Biscotti's many times for lunch, but never for dinner. I was pleasantly surprised to find an additional dinner menu that was outstanding. The lunch menu has always been wonderful "lunch" food, but now it's even better with the added dinner selections.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very enjoyable, great selection, quality ingredients and GREAT service. Definitely will repeat visit.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Can't wait to go back.
Thai chicken salad was very fresh and flavorful. Soup was served hot. I have been thinking about, the seasonal cake with fresh berries,custard, and angel food cake for two days. It was so delicious. My husband had a pizza and was happy. This restaurant is a great value for food quality and price paid. It was clean.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Noisy! But fun
Food was quite good but the pork was a bit overlooked for our taste. Chilean sea bass was wonderful and of course the tangerine cake we took home was yummy
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
We saw an article about the upgrades in the Times Union. Since we had never been, we thought we'd give it a go. It was a really nice experience for a Sunday morning. The service was excellent and timely. We will return, I'm sure.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Every bite a delight
This restaurant came highly recommended and it didn't disappoint. Three of us made different selections based on our dietary needs/wants; chicken salad wrap, soup and salad, and pasta. All 3 selections were perfect. Two of us enjoyed dessert. We had a mango-key lime cheesecake which was exceptional. I made reservations but upon arrival we were seated by the wait station at a table for 6 which was not a favored choice. There were several empty tables by the windows. However, the host did honor our request to be seated at a suitably-sized table and by the window. The waitress was friendly and accommodating to our needs.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Biscotti's is simply the best dining spot in Jacksonville. I agree this is one of those "bucket list" places to eat at while living on or visiting to Jacksonville. The grilled ficcacha bread sandwich with pasta said and a tropical tea is just the perfect balance of flavors and a top pick for lunch. Finish up with a slice of carrot cake (honestly it must be 5 inches wide and 6-7 inches high) topped with a spectacular cream cheese frosting will leave you wanting to come back, if for nothing else but for another piece of this slice of heaven!
My wife and I make a point to get to Biscottis at least monthly, it's just that good!

Lovely Saturday dinner with tot
We brought our 2 year old son to share dinner after family photos in the area, and had a lovely time. It was about 530 on Saturday so plenty of seating still and we were seated immediately. Our waitress was quick and responsive, brought plenty of drinks and wasn't by too much or too little. Our son had the grilled cheese and fries--the open faced cheese baguette was a little too fancy for him, but it's a clever idea. My husband and I shared the fried green tomatoes and amberjack appetizer, which was fantastic including the unique sauces. Our entrees (turkey sandwich with salad and pork chops) were perfectly done. Dessert--banana gingerbread cheesecake--was amazing. Overall it was a really nice experience.

Great American food in Avondale
After reading a number of glowing reviews, I decided to book a group dinner here. Unless you look hard on their website, you will think they only serve small plates, sandwiches and soups. This is not the case - look for their "daily specials" menu. All of our table were impressed by the quality of the food. The portion sizes were quite large (maybe too large). The appetizers were very well prepared and presented. The wine list is notable, not for its size, but for the excellent values and varieties on the list (e.g., a very good Oregon pinot noir for $32/bottle). You will be pleasantly surprised. Alas, we were all too full to even sample a dessert, so that will have to wait until next time. The service was also quite good. I'm a fan!
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another delightful meal
Wonderful meal as always at Biscottis. Great menu, wines by the glass, service and ambiance. One of my favorite restaurants and so glad that they take reservations now!
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great as always
I am never disappointed. The food was amazing, our server was awesome! One of my fave brunch spots.. as well as lunch and dinner spots, but Brunch always makes me super happy!!!

Dinner at Biscotti's
Had dinner with a girlfriend last week. Food was great and our waiter very good too. It was a little noisy but other than that, great time!
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun with your gal pals
Biscotti s has great food. We went for brunch and had the avocado cheese appetizer. It was better than the ones we have had at other restaurants. Our relative from out of town remarked that it was the best she had eaten. We also had the biscotti omelet and vegetarian omelet Delicious. They came with two sides. Our other friend had the French toast which was thick and yummy. The service was quick and great. We will be going back soon.

Check out the daily specials!
If you judge this restaurant only by the posted menu on their website, you might just pass this one by and it would be a big mistake. Their daily specials are indeed special, and this was our second trip. The special menu is seasonal and this visit had quite a large choice of pumpkin related items. The sea bass with cubed pumpkin chunks was outstanding and a very different type of dish from what we envisioned. We also had the smoked sausage starter with pumpkin puree and it was just fantastic..Make sure you leave room for their EXTENSIVE choice of deserts! Our server was patient, friendly, helpful, and attentive - just as we like them. We certainly will be back the next time we travel to Jacksonville.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Reservations help on Saturday night
Always great food, and a display case of yummy deserts....usually we take two home and work on them for 3 days to savor the experience.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our group enjoyed everything. Our food was good and so was the service.

Avoid Biscottis and Stay Home
I strongly suggest people not try this restaurant as it might create higher demand and make it more difficult for me to make reservations. Let's keep everyone else away so I can go more easily. Thanks! Also, don't eat their pasteries if you do decide to go--save those for me, too.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
First vist - but not the last!
I've lived in Jacksonville all my life, and have heard people speak of Biscottis, but I'd never dined there. I had company from out of town and was looking for a good Sunday Brunch place. I chose Biscottis after doing an online search for Brunch spots in Jax. There were 5 in my party and we all got something different from the menu - We ALL loved every SINGLE bite. Delicious food!! I'm looking forward to my next visit!
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Save room for dessert
I like to visit Biscotti's when I'm in town. Their beautiful, delicious desserts are the highlight of the menu, but I've enjoyed the entrees, soups, and salads, as well. They also offer a good selection of locally brewed craft beers.
I recommend the goat cheese salad and the red velvet cheesecake.
Also, be sure to look for the playing cards on the ceiling!
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Made us feel as though they were expecting us. Gave us a lovely table. One mistake they brought my wife's meal out with tomatoes, in which she asked for none. this was quickly corrected. Dessert selection was the best i ever saw. Great food is what ultimately makes a restaurant successful, This place has got it down just right.
