Great place to get together with family and friends. Excellent service, variety of Italian entrees, good selection of wine. Musician on a Friday and Saturday evening. Always a wonderful dining experience. Would recommend for special occasions or just everyday dining.
The food was well prepared and the service was prompt and attentive. Nice wine list. Popular place.
Great food and price especially at their early bird. Large, large portions within a friendly atmosphere. A favorite of many in the area. Reservations recommended.
Wonderful as usual.
Great neighborhood authentic Italian spot. Very friendly and efficient service.
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!
Excellent food and service. Portions too large but you can always take home.
We always appreciate a dinner at Poppys. Consistently great food, ambiance and service.
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.
Rachael seated us promptly. Victoria provided great service. The food was outstanding. Live musician added to the atmosphere.
Great neighborhood restaurant. Consistently good food, reasonable price and overall a gem.
Every dish is perfection
This is located in a small strip mall and what a find it is. Came recommended by a neighbor and we had a great meal and nice glass of wine. There was a gentlemen playing music which added a nice touch. Waiter was attentive and friendly, food was large portion and reasonable price.
Food was excellent. Service was not very good. Our server left too many dishes and glasses on the table. It felt like he was overwhelmed.
Always look forward to dining here. Never disappoints. Try to make it a point to go every month or so. Worth the drive.
Poppy's is absolutely the BEST Italian food in the Jacksonville/Ponte Vedra/St. Augustine area. Fresh ingredients, authentic, and simply delicious.
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!
My husband and I went in for the Early Bird Special! It’s the best Italian food and greatest deal in town! Everything was fresh and hot and delicious! We enjoyed for a simple night out!
What a great night. The food was so tasty (as always).
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.
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
The food and service was outstanding. Waiter was very helpful. Portions are very generous. Will eat there again.
Excellent food and excellent service. We went on a weeknight and we were pleasantly surprised with the quality and quantity of the food. It was a relaxed atmosphere.
We will definitely return!
First timer and sorry I haven’t been a regular. Generous portions and exceptional flavor. Recommend seafood risotto. Will return to try just about everything on menu.
Great food and excellent service. Good value for the money.
Both the food and service were excellent. The hot baked garlic bread was wonderful. The salads were nice size and tasty. Both salad and bread came with meals. The shrimp scampi had plenty of large fresh Mayport shrimp and was large portion. The chicken parmesan was tasty and large chicken breast was so tender. We couldn't eat all of it and took some home for the next day. We definitely will go back to this restaurant. The service was wonderful too.
We had chicken piccata and shrimp scampi. Both were excellent. Our waitress was very pleasant.
Haven't been at Poppy's in a while. We really missed it. Always professional service and friendly atmosphere. Music on Saturday evenings which is wonderful. Great wine. Delicious garlic bread. Nice specials along with the favorites. Never disappoints.
Definitely up to Poppy’s high standards. Salads were cold and crispy, calamari absolutely delicious and plentiful, main courses marvelous. Bread was fantastic. Our service could not do enough for us...applaud, applaud...applaud. Thank you very much.
Poppy’s never disappoints! Excellent food and top notch servers!!
Olive oil and garlic shrimp appetizer was excellent as was the Grouper Picatta special. Outstanding food server.
Food always good. Noisy today with accordion player and several birthdays. Server was excellent.
We always have a great meal at Poppy's. This reservation was for six and included four guests from out of town who we were entertaining. The evening was perfect and our guests were very impressed with everything. We especially enjoyed the live music (an accordion player) on a Friday night. We try to make a reservation talking advantage of their early bird special which is a significant bargain. It was wonderful to have four dinner (two couples split their order) which included salad, bread, entree and a glass of wine) for under $75 including tip.
We always have a great meal in a cozy ambiance with friendly service
