Extremely disappointed with our latest visit to Bistro Aix on Saturday evening. Took some friends who have never been to celebrate my birthday, and had been raving to them about the food and service. We waited an hour for an appetizer of blue cheese chips and then were served French onion soup that was cool to lukewarm under the melted cheese. Our waiter took the soup back and brought it back warm but never once apologized. Then, we waited over an hour more for our main order which for a table of six, consisted of three burgers, a salad and a bowl of soup. Not exactly a difficult or extensive order and we had ordered before the appetizer arrived. When we inquired after more than an hour, our server said curtly 'yes, it's in the window now. I'm going to get it.' Again, no apology for the delay. The restaurant was remarkably only half full on a Saturday evening at 7pm. When the food was finally served, the calamari on my Aix salad was ice cold and rubbery. I discreetly told the server the calamari was cold and asked him to just take it back. He did remove it from the bill (I didn't eat a bite) but again, never apologized for the disappointment. We ordered a creme brulee for dessert and it was marginal at best. We didn't leave for over three hours after we were seated~ we left exhausted and disappointed. I've dined at Aix several times and often brought friends and family there from out of town. We have always had excellent food and service in the past. I am really disappointed with our most recent visit and would definitely be hesitant to recommend to anyone based on our experience. I hope it was just an off night and not indicative of a downward trend in service and quality.

Great ambiance when not crowded, but loud once tables begin to fill up. The restaurant is so beautiful and has a great vibe. Our service was excellent, properly attentive and helpful with food selections. Food is overall very good, but we had a couple of items at our table which were not 5-star. Still one of of "go to" restaurants in Jax.

Their French Onion soup is outstanding.
The server was very attentive and made sure water glasses were full and we were enjoying our meal. We were able to have a great conversation even though their were people all around. I highly recommend going to Bistro AIX for lunch or dinner for a special occasion or before a concert. I guarantee you that you will not be disappointed.

I have been here many times for lunch and have had good food and service. Unfortunately this dinner was pretty disappointing. The service boarded on non-existent. My dish was pasta which was tasty but cried out for bread which I had to ask a different server for since ours didn’t check back with us after dropping the plates. The atmosphere was very pretentious which again was disappointing. I have had many servers who were good and made us feel welcomed. Luckily we still had a wonderful time.

I’ll start with the good things... the atmosphere was great, as was the live music. However, the appetizers were mediocre, and our waiter seemed like he was on some type of amphetamine.

The blue cheese chips are always outstanding. I was happy with the filet and augratin potatoes but they did need more salt. The server had the bartender make a special drink for me on my birthday. I wanted something sweet, fruity and not too strong. They hit it out of the park.

We ordered a cocktail, appetizer, soup/salad, bottle of wine, and entree. Our courses were not timed out well. I may be spoiled and picky but each course should be spaced out well as to not make guests feel rushed. When I order that many courses I need a break and time to just enjoy my date night.
Food was great. Scallops delicious. Loved the cheese board as well.

Three of us went to BA to have a serious talk. Our server was perfect! She was sensitive to our intense conversation, but quietly and cheerfully went about her duties to ensure we got what we needed. I had the mussels, two of which tasted a little “off”, but the salads and other dishes were excellent! Most important, the ambiance was cozy and quiet, just as we had hoped. Welcome back, Bostro Aix!

We have eaten at Bistro Aix several times. In fact it is one of our favorite Jacksonville restaurants because each menu item is prepared & presented at a level one would expect of a more expensive restaurant. Tonight we shared the smoked salmon appetizer, an always delicious dish. My husband had the smoked tomato soup while I ordered the chopped Caesar salad. Both were perfect. He had the tuna loin ( just seared) &, for the first time, I ordered a pizza, which was far more than I could eat (home in a box it went). For dessert we shared a petit four & a macaron, which was just enough to complete the meal (both were delicious). The service was excellent as usual.

The only “complaint” we have is that dessert prices have been raised to a level ($12 or $13) not found in other comparable restaurants. So it will be a single petit four or macaron whose pricing is far more reasonable.
