Ambience is good, our server was terrific and a great help! The grouper and shrimp risotto were equisite! One of the better options at the beach if you are looking for upscale dining at a great value!

We were stopping over in Ponte Vedra and found Poopy online. We arrived for our resv time of 7, a party of 2. We were seated in the little alcove which gave me a nice view of the staff going into and out of the kitchen. The waitress was pleasant, knew the menu and dishes offered. The food was good and there was a nice selection on the menu. The sauce served with my Baked Rigatoni was bland but otherwise the dish was fine. My. Wife had the fish special, a flounder sautéed in lemon and butter. Definitely a local p[lace and we would go back.

We heard about Poppy’s from several people. It was by far the best Italian we have had at the beach! We all ordered different items. We certainly enjoyed how each meal was served steaming hot and made loving with fine ingredients. You will not be disappointed!

A cut above basic Italian fare. Appetizer choices very limited, although caprice was good. The W.B.T.G. selection left a lot to be desired, particularly whites. Bottle selection fair. Pasta was overcooked, definitely commercial grade, not house made.

Ambiance was nice, accordion player a nice touch. Service(Mark)very attentive. Would probably go back again when in Pontre Vedre.

Always a request to dine there when we come down from NYC. Each time I ask for the recipe for their special Italian dressing and each time they tell me it's a secret! It's that delish.

The portions and the value are terrific. Chicken Franchese is my fav. Outrageous garlic bread. Come to NYC! We need you on the Upper Eastside!

I was very happy to see that there were no television sets! It made it easier to have a conversation.

I liked the real candles and table cloths used on the tables.

It would have been nice to have a vegan or two selection. The eggplant was delicious!

IMO the best Italian in the Jacksonville/Saint Johns Area and we have been to many. Having come from the NY/NJ area that says a lot. My wife and I and our dinning friends always enjoy going to this restaurant. We have been there many times and have never been disappointed. Reserve a table online and you wont be waiting in line for one at 7 PM. Needless to say we will be going there often.

You can smell the garlic outside. If you are looking for traditional Italian good, this is your spot. Portions are huge. We usually have leftovers to take home for lunch. The garlic knots are insanely garlicky and served with every meal. A soup or salad is included with each meal. Service has always been prompt and friendly. Reservations highly suggested. Especially on weekends.

My wife, daughter, granddaughter and I had dinner at Poppy's the night before the DONNA Marathon to carbo-load for the race. We selected Poppy's based on the positive reviews from other diners since we were unfamiliar with the Ponte Vedra Beach area. We couldn't have been more pleased with the restaurant. It is a true Italian restaurant with a excellent food, very friendly ambiance, and exceptional service.

This is one of our favorite restaurants because the food and service is always great. Renata was our waitress and she did an absolute a great job. We had a variety of meals from the chicken parmigiana, cheese tortellini, to the lasagna and chicken picatta. Everyone loved their food and the fresh garlic bread is always great. A great local restaurant and we love that we can make reservations in advance. Always a good time when we go there.

Overall the food was good. Was sold on the limoncello cake that turned out to be a lightly-flavored lemon chiffon cake that tasted more vanilla than lemon so left most of it. Was looking for that bold lemon alcohol flavor. Flounder special was excellent. And who ever thought bringing s screaming baby in at 8:30 was a good a idea needs their head examined. Not the restaurant's fault but certainly affected the ambiance.

Everything was good but one of my chicken cutlets was burnt and the he waiter pretended he didn’t know what I was talking about. “Burnt ??” I should not have been served a burnt chicken cutlet. He handed us our check before even checking checking if maybe we wanted dessert. We had to ask him for dessert menu
