Bistro Aix Ratings and Reviews
Was excited to try since the reopen and it was disappointing. No real new menu items and the food was just lackluster. The baked Brie was good but why put jam on top and make it soggy? The short rib my hubby had tasted like I could have made it in the crockpot and the carrots were underdone. The lighting is odd and is very bright for a romantic place on Valentine’s Day. Loved it throughout the years but it’s been on a downward spiral since all the changes. Won’t be back. :(
So happy to see they've re-opened after hurricane Irma, just as good as ever. Their new Sister restaurant Cowford Chophouse could learn from them about friendly service and accommodating customers while maintaining an upscale culinary experience. I wanted to impress my client who is looking to bring 700 police chaplains to town and the restaurant was exactly what he and I were looking for.
I must admit that I've always been a HUGE fan of Bistro Aix, and counted it as one of my favorite Jacksonville restaurants. Unfortunately, I'm extremely disappointed by my visit after its re-launch last week. The warm, dark, glam ambiance is gone in favor of more senior-friendly cold overhead fluorescent bulb lighting. The blonde chairs and blonde floor wash out the room, and it's louder than ever. The food was well cooked (the menu has barely changed by the way), but the presentation was uninspired and dessert was a chocolate glob. The wine list is not nearly as well structured as it was -- and they're already running out of several bottles. I really hope these early missteps are all related to the re-launch (and not indicative of the "new" Bistro Aix), and will be corrected soon. I so hoped this would be a chance for Bistro Aix to reinvent itself, and it has - only for the worse. I'll be watching to see if they improve. But, I'm in no hurry to return -- and I never thought I would type that about Bistro Aix.
Web site still shows them closed. Server was extremely friendly, but service was very slow. Slow enough that we asked for more bread waiting on our appetizer. We have been here before the flood three times and had exceptional service. Food was bland- had chicken and steak. Beet salad was good. Drinks took forever. We were there at 545 pm on Saturday. Heard lots of staff telling others they were new to the business. I'm sure it will get better again. Did not help my $155+ meal cost with tip.
The restaurant has just reopened after repairs from hurricane season. They have done a great job remodeling the establishment. The food was excellent. If you like beets like I do, the beet salad is a must. It is prepared unlike any that I had had before. We both had the lamb. a knife was not necessary. The wine list has enough to cover about any taste without extortionate prices. It is located close the the Jacksonville theaters and it opens early enough for a relaxed meal and a trip to the show. Highly recommended.
Went for sons 30 th birthday took over an hour for appetizers after numerical request. 3 to be exact. Told appetizers would be complimentary and a drink for my son. Charged for both. Frequent customer but not sure will return. Awful way to reopen and treat a customer who has visited all amazing forks restaurants weekly.
Disappointed. Dr Gari
We have dined at Bistro Aix over the past ten years. The food has always been consistent in its value, quality and ambiance. This last visit however was a bit off. The simplest of things , beet salad, was less than desired. However, my husband ordered the tuna, which has always been a staple on the menu, and it was fantastic! So, the take away is this, the devil is in the details! you put a heirloom beet salad on the menu, wash the kale it sits upon! No one likes a gritty salad!
So excited to be a part of the re-opening of Bistro AIX! I was prepared for minor errors, but there really were none. We had soups, entree’s, drinks and shared a dessert. The service at Bistro is unparalleled. The chefs are creative. The food is fresh and sourced from local farms as much as possible.
The new looks suits the environment and it has a very “Gothic modern” feel. Chic and perfect for date night! Worth every penny!
Our evening at Bistro Aix was a special occasion, a birthday celebration. The restaurant staff could not have been more helpful in making the evening a great success for our party of 8. Prior arrangement was made easily for a birthday cake baked on premise and served as a surprise for our son. The dinner service was excellent as well. The food was prepared perfectly from the appetizers to the entrees. Also, I like the alternatives the restaurant offers to order smaller size appetizers, salads, and entrees versus full size. Perhaps more originality in the menu would have resulted in a five-star rating for the food, but, overall, Bistro Aix is a restaurant we will continue to visit.
Fantastic food and service. We ordered 3 appetizers, 3 entrees and 3 desserts (for 3 people) and we all cleaned our plates. The portions were just right and the waiter had some really good recommendations and knowledge of the full menu.
The total will be a little pricey if you go with a full course meal + wine. But it's worth it for a special occasion and the food is well worth the cost. Definitely put this on your list of places to try.
Very disappointed. Service horrible, slow and took too long to get water, drinks, bread, place order and food! Not very busy so unsure why we had such long waits. Waiter would disappear for periods of time then bounce back for a second then disappear again. Never once asked how are meals were. No plans to return any time soon.
Food was awesome, but the service sucked. It was my first time in Jacksonville and my firs time eating at Bistro aix. We had 5:00 reservations and we're the first table to sit, but was not greeted until after two other tables walked in and got there drinks and bread. I don't know if it was because we were two black females or what. But was not good
Seated promptly when we arrived for our reservation - thank you. Homemade blue cheese chips incredible-wonderfully thin and not oily. Salmon appetizer was outstanding. My wife had the tuna entre and loved it. I had the hangar steak and ordered it medium, came out rare. They took it back and it still came back rare. They apologized, sent it back and brought a fresh one cooked perfectly-medium plus. Hangar steaks are a little tough and need to be cooked more to break down fibers. If cut thin, probably not a problem but these were cut in chunks. It tasted wonderful. Dessert was the strawberry crepe(wonderfully light) for me and my wife had a chocolate torte cake that she is still talking about-LOVED it. Service was outstanding and the owner/manager came over, apologized for problem w/ the hangar steak and no charged the entre. Very professional and appreciated. This just became my favorite Jacksonville restaurant. We live 70 miles away but we will be back and they are now our go to restaurant in Jacksonville. We were referred by friends and I can see why this restaurant has been around for 18 years. They get IT-great food, great service and fairly priced. Thanks for a great experience.
