I made reservations for my husband and I to enjoy a nice dinner before we went next door to see the symphony. We valet parked at the Omni and upon arrival to the restaurant we were seated immediately. We were served delicious bread while we waited for our food. One thing to note, where we sat was not completely private, we ended up talking to the people next to us which was ok, the tables were kinda close together on the back wall.

My husband ordered the blackened ribeye medium rare (I think it was a ribeye) and I ordered the filet Mignon medium well. When our food finally came out, my husbands steak was cooked medium well and mine was well done!!! Our server took them back and within a few minutes had fresh steaks back to us, only this time, my streak was medium rare and my husbands was rare and they did not bring me the right side dish that I originally ordered! Needless to say, mine got sent back AGAIN and hubby just ate around his. Three times sent back and finally I was so hungry I ate it.

We ordered dessert after all this, which was very good, and despite all the food problems still made it to the show on time. However, if we have ever had an issue in the past at different restaurants, a manager always spoke with us, even if just to address and notice the issue. No one came to talk to us, the server did apologize and gave us 10% off our $80 dinner (before tip). I was very disappointed in our overall experience. I would go back to give them another try if we go to the symphony again because of the convenience, but I would not get steak again.

Had lunch here on a Friday. We were served requested Hot Tea with no water in the teapot! Chicken Caesar Salad had chicken that was extremely dried out. Grilled fish sandwich was cool in the middle. Manager gave us a perfunctory "sorry about that" when we related this to her.
The waiter was slightly more solicitous and gave 15% off the Caesar salad. Despite its proximity to the theatre and Symphony, it will be a long time before we return.

The restaurant has a good crowd before the theater events. The menu has nice variety, food is good and the service does a great job of getting you fed and out in time for the theater.

Juliette's Bistro is very handy for the theatre since it is a 2 or 3 minute walk to the Florida Times Union Center. Unfortunately, passing on that information to the hostess and the waiter did not keep us from having to gulp down our food in order to make the show. We arrived at 6:40 for an 8 PM show and ordered one of the few choices, Shrimp-and -Grits, and a salad. The salad arrived in about 20 minutes and then we waited almost an additional 30 minutes for our main course and wine.

To be fair the meal was very tasty, but the fact that we had to almost inhale it was unsettling and otherwise ruined the experience. Our waiter was apologetic and even offered a small discount (which was kind) but the dinner part of the evening was sullied by that point.

I also have to say that their prices are quite high; $24 for a portion of shrimp-and-grits is a bit much, and $28 for a half bottle of a plebeian chardonnay (full retail for a 750 mL bottle is $15) is quite exorbitant.

It might be good for after theatre drinks, but we have decided we will not return for a meal.

My snapper was extremely overcooked and my french fries were cold upon arrival. My wife's Caesar salad was not good---she left almost all of it on the plate---although her fried green tomatoes were fine.

Our visit was for a dual wedding anniversary with my wife and I and one of our sons and his wife. 49 years fo us and 10 years for our son and his wife. Our son does not consume meat in any form and the Chef on duty was more than accommodating . Overall we had a great time and would recommend friends and family to try the Omni. Also our server was extremely attentive and very accommodating.

We decided to have Father's Day brunch at Juliette's. We made reservations for 1:30 and we were immediately seated. Due to the lateness of the hour, there were some limitations but overall it was a great experience. My favorites were the omelette bar and the snow crab claws. One thing I don't like and I would like to see addressed are the flies and gnats. Otherwise, a wonderful brunch made even more wonderful by the bottomless mimosas!

The corn and crab bisque was delicious but it nevertheless had no corn and no crab. The wedge salad that I had was passable as was my husband's shrimp salad. I had high hopes for a significant improvement in this venue but it has regressed to the same inconsistent restaurant it has always been. The waiter tried but the kitchen again shows signs of mismanagement. The kitchen did not do what the waiter told them to do and brought all the food out at the same time. Totally annoying. I made them return the salads to the kitchen. If Juliette's was not adjacent to the theater and a convenient parking lot, I wouldn't continue to patronize Juliette's.

Please change out the menu served during theatre nights. As we frequently go to Juliette's before seeing a show, it would be nice to have some seasonal options. The last 4 times I've dined there, the menu has been the same. Food is good and quick, but needs to be changed up.

We drove 65 miles to attend the Jacksonville Symphony concert on Saturday night, March 25, and had reservations at Juliette's for pre-concert dinner. The location is directly across from the symphony hall, and we were able to park easily in the Omni lot ($20) and go to dinner. The wines and salads were good, but entrees were not at all what they were supposed to be. My husband's rib-eye ($29) ended up as two thin steaks that were way overcooked, on the leathery side. I ordered the special-Sesame crusted sushi grade tuna with Asian slaw. My tuna had no sesame seeds, just salt and pepper for seasoning, and there was no slaw. It also took 40 minutes for our entrees to arrive after the salads were brought. The manager and wait-staff kept apologizing and offered us complimentary desserts which my husband ordered, but I chose not to have. For me it was a huge letdown of a meal and I was ready to leave. We paid the $101 bill without complaint, tipped the waitress who was embarrassed, and just left as soon as possible. We will not be eating there again.

No atmosphere
Food was fair - over cooked scallops & under cooked succotash
Arrived @ 8:30. Felt rushed by staff who were bringing food in between setting up the room for breakfast service the nxt morning. Staff not too happy about not placing my entire order before getting drinks. Staff not happy about ordering desert & coffee. Guess @ 9:30 on a Friday they had other places to be. Had to take silverware from nxt table repeatedly. Got check (w/o asking for it) in the same time with the dessert. The coffee followed - w teaspoons handed to us, once again, from a nearby table. Hey, at least I didn't have to get them myself like I did throughout the evening.

They have learned to accommodate the many shows across the street and have prepared a menu to permit people to come in dying quickly and get out. We took the option to see the main menu and feasted on appetizers. What a wonderful way to start the evening they were all especially nice. The special for the evening was lobster bisque and it was Heavenly, the best I have had in maybe 50 or 60 years.
