Diner Reviews
  • "We chose to sit outside after recognizing that both the noise and lighting levels were bad inside. Noise will drive us away. The quiet places win, period."

  • "I do eat at good restaurants all the time. I travel a lot, plus I live in the Bay Area in California (com'on man!) The Pate!!! The Berkshire pork rillettes was served too cold, almost felt frozen. Now..this may never be served warm, but personally I think it would be better. The sour cherry marmalade with it was perfect. I had Beef Stroganoff which some may consider pedestrian, but I haven't had it often and it was soooo good. We also had duck leg confit, frickin perfectly crispy deliciousness! Server choose an interesting and great bottle of wine (alas, I don't have name at my fingertips). all in all a meal that was far superior to Bouchon in Vegas, a place much touted for fab French food."
    Dined on 8/25/2014
  • "Dinner here was a food adventure. The escargot was out of this world. We had duck breast and pork chops, both is which were memorable. The banana bread pudding was like none I've ever eaten. Incredible. You will love it but take your wallet!"

  • "This restaurant is a long drive for us, so we don't go there often, but it is my favorite restaurant in town."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "Orsay is a hidden gem to me. It is the kind of restaurant that I would expect to have a month long waiting list but instead there is always room for walk ins and last minute reservations. The food is beyond incredible, the chefs are pure food artists and the staff goes above and beyond each and every time."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "As always, 5 Stars for everything - Serena our server was great, food great, just a great time enjoyed by our party of 4"

  • "Orsay never disappoints. Great food and service. I'm a regular."
    Dined on 8/20/2014
  • "We had an amazing dining experience at Orsay. I had foie gras for the first time & it was to die for. Everyone in my party was thoroughly impressed with all aspects of their meal. I would recommend this place to all in The Jax area."
    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "I've heard about Orsay for years but this was my first visit. I have to admit that I was a little intimidated by a French restaurant. I could not have been more pleasantly surprised! We went for Sunday brunch and everyone's food was delicious. Prices were very reasonable and the ambiance was very nice. Dessert was terrific - so definitely save the room for it. Very nice cheese and wine selection, and my next visit will be just for that purpose."

  • "Brought my girlfriend here for her Birthday dinner. Night could not have been more perfect. Five stars in all categories."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "I have been to Orsay many times over the years, even back to when it was called Crush, and I can honestly say that it is my favorite restaurant in Jacksonville because you can rely on their high standard of service and quality of food. Easily the best kept secret in town for fine dining."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Food was great but server disappeared after taking order"
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "My wife and I went for a special occasion and were not disappointed. The service was polite, attentive but not hovering and prompt. The food was fantastic. Pricey but worth every penny."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Took my boyfriend to Orsay for his birthday. We got there earlier than our reservation (for happy hour), but they were able to easily accomodate us. Food was phenomenal! He & I both raved about our dishes - bouillabaisse & the scallops. Wow! We will be back again soon, no doubt!"
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "We had a lovely dinner with wonderful food: a cheese tray, trout, snapper and steak with the perfect house salad. An assortment of desserts rounded out the menu - all fabulous. We had blueberry cheesecake, macaroons, cookies and a divine plate of three house ice creams. Highly recommend! The service was first-rate too."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "Wife and I were there for birthday dinner. Everything was good but for one thing- the lobster pot pie was sorely overcooked- kind of an unforgivable mistake considering the caliber of dining this was. We both ordered it because we heard it was a signature dish. A sharp knife is served prior but even that was not quite sharp enough and the meat was very chewy. Otherwise a good experience. Wife and I have dined at Le Continental and Le Saint Amour so we have fine dined before. Yes we will go back but we were put on notice from that experience."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "The food is cooked fresh by order. It was served hot and within a readonable time. The waiters have a exelent knowledge about the ingredients of the dishes and the service is exelent."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "A very nice ambience with a great service and good drinks but flavorless food"
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "This restaurant was an unexpected find while visiting Jacksonville. Everything was top notch, great cocktail bar, including one if the best mocktails of the week for my 16 yr old daughter, always a good sign of a talented mixologist. Service and food were wonderful across the board. I would recommend this restaurant highly to anyone."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "Great food and service. There wasn't a thing on our table of 6 that I didn't enjoy and I had the scallops, tasted the lobster pot pie and the fish special which was the best meal on the table! The bread pudding with banana and caramel was to die for! The blue point oysters were awesome too!"
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "All of the elegance and delicious food you want without pretense. The music was great, the servers and hosts were wonderful, the decor is relaxing yet elegant. The food and drinks were enough to rate a 5!"
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "The food was fantastic and our waiter was wonderful. The best meal we have had in Jacksonville. Highly recommend."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Great service and overall we had a pleasant evening. The cocktails were delicious and it featured a few seasonal drinks made with gin and vodka. The food was outstanding and we both enjoyed our meal very much. While the soup du jour, gazpacho, was not traditional, it was tasty and refreshing. For our main course, we had the steak frites and the mussel frites. The steak was perfectly seasoned and cooked, the mussels were well-spiced in a white wine broth. Fries were crispy and paired with a garlic aioli. Our only regret was not saving some room for dessert!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "This was our first visit to Restaurant Orsay. We arrived early to have a drink at the bar and enjoy some nibbles. The bar service and nibbles were great. I am sure it is always a dilemma for a restaurant -- ask your customers to either control their children or remove them. Our guess is that people at the large table in the bar area who had children with them are perhaps 'regulars'. But these kids were out of control, running around, running into people, etc., and the parents seemed oblivious to it all. It was a big initial damper to the beginning of our celebration evening. However, after we were seated at our table for dinner, everything turned around. The service was exceptional and the food was delicious! We will be back."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Every time I go to Jacksonville, I make sure I get to Orsay."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Very nice overall. Needs a more personal feel to the Restaurant. Smaller sized Restaurant so there is very little space between your table and the table next to you which takes away the personal feeling that most Restaurants with Orsays quality have. Otherwise the food was great."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Second time I have tried this restaurant. We (my GF and I) were seated in front of the kitchen...very noisy and frenetic area of the restaurant. The seating is not very private, in fact most of the seating options have you sitting right next to other diners...maybe 24" away? So, not romantic in the least. Very expensive. We had one appetizer we shared and an entree each, (only water to drink) and the bill (less tip) was $98.00. The quality of the food seemed fine, but the receipes were only so-so, certainly nothing special. I do not mind spending lavishly on good food, but on this occasion, the quality/portions/receipe made the "over-priced" conclusion and easy one to form. Two stars was well deserved. I will probably not return."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Love this place....never a disappointment! Don't pass up the Escargot!! Everyone was happy with their meal and everyone had a different entree so I can't imagine that there is anything on the menu that isn't delicious. The Creme Brulee was the best I've had in Jax!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We had an outstanding birthday dinner from beginning to end. Enjoyed the cocktails, the roasted oysters appetizer, the filet mignon and pork chop, and (especially) the creme brulee. Thanks!"
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "This was our first visit and the food was delicious, the waiter was great and the atmosphere was good! We will definitely be back."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "This was our 3rd visit to Orsay. As usual, everything was great. For an appetizer, I had the salmon tartar -- fabulous, juicy, unusual. My husband had the mushroom bisque. The waitress brought him extra bread because it was obvious he wanted to soak up ALL of it from his bowl. He then had the vegetarian pot pie, with mashed potato crust. He reported it was very good. I had the trout for the second time and found it cooked perfectly along with green beans and potato something or other that are also good. We never have dessert, so I can't weigh in on those."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "The tone for this review and our meal was set when despite having reservation's we were seated in the extremely noisy bar. We asked to be reaccommodated but new table not much better. The waiter was pleasant and knowledgeable but brought us tap water after we asked for bottled water and then completely left off my side order of black truffle mac n cheese. My wife had the fish of the night a crispy skinned snapper which was prepared perfectly and was quite delicious. I had the cassoulet which good but not a star. For dessert I chose the banana bread pudding which was absolutely delicious. My wife chose the blueberry's n cream and found it to be fresh and light a perfect way to end a summer meal."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Great Restaurant, even if French isn't your favorite taste. The service was very attentive and did not rush the dining experience. I would certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Jacksonville. There seemed to be a number of locals there which is always a good sign. Ask for the front dining room."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "I took one of my C-level executives who was in town on a visit. We were both thoroughly impressed. I have also only been in Jacksonville for 5 months now but eat out for a living (sales). It is definitely one of the best restaurants I have been to thus far and I have been to many highly ranked restaurants in my short time here."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "This restaurant is amazing! Love the ambience and the food was fantastic! I definitely recommend the truffle Mac and cheese!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "This is a great place - nice atmosphere, wonderful food, and amazing service. It is a must do when in Jacksonville!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Orsay is at the forefront of the local food scene. Do you deserve to eat well? This place has it all. Delicious pan roasted fish, oysters, cheese, and don't forget the creative cocktails. If you want to impress someone new or old, Orsay is the place to be."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Our waitress did not arrive for more than 10 minutes after we were seated and then admitted that she just forgot about us. Apologized but nothing else. She was less than enthusiastic which is unusual for Orsay. The food was good, even though my appetizers of roasted oysters looked and tasted like they spent some time under a heat lamp. Overall, not a great night. We expect better from them."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "It really was a great restaurant. It has a smaller dining room, which creates an intimate experience (if done correctly...and it was). The food was amazing and well priced. The server was very knowledgeable and attentive. The overall experience was fantastic and we will be headed back soon."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "I took two friends here as a thank you for their hospitality and to celebrate Bastille Day, it being a French restaurant. There was no celebration; in fact, they didn't know about it! The food was excellent, our wine choice was satisfying, and the service was quite good. We enjoyed our time there and were impressed with the quality of the food, even if the ambience was somewhat austere. I won't be returning as I live in Albuquerque, NM, but I think they might re-visit the experience"
