    Food was nothing spectacular considering the price. Since they are supposed to be a very high end restaurant, it was odd to see an old guy in shorts and a tank top. Also our table was inside against a window looking outside at a table right next to us. Not a very private dinning experience. I will not be going back

    We have already reserved another dinner at Preserved. The charcuterie board was perfect to share with our party of four. The NY strip steak, beef short ribs and Bouillabaisse were outstanding. Highly recommend the ice cream trio or crème brûlée for a light and flavorful dessert. Robert, our server, gave us old-school attentiveness and courtesy…a lost art in so many upscale restaurants. This is a new favorite for us and worth the drive from Jax. Ample parking.

    Raw oysters were fresh & amazing. I preferred the raw over the baked oysters. The bacon over powered the baked oyster. Scallops were absolutely perfectly seared and delicious. Shrimp and grits were different than expected but still good. The pomme purée was under seasoned and not worth trying. Asparagus was great. Crème brûlée was also fantastic. Service was excellent.

    My husband and I have dined at The Preserved before and loved it. Last night, the room we were in was extremely noisy. On the plus side, our server Blythe was outstanding. The receptionist was friendly as were the rest of the staff. On average, the food was average-I ordered the potato soup and it was really delicious. Then, I chose their fish of the day - - snapper was over cooked- dry. My husband ordered the scallops and he loved the flavor but felt the portion was on the small side (he ate most of my fish-agreeing it was over cooked). For desert we split the lemon cake with fresh rhubarb -that was a delight and different. Maybe if we had sat outside it would have been more pleasant. We were there on a Thursday so perhaps the usual Chef wasn’t in. I still recommend Preserved but not sure how soon I’ll be back.

    Preserved is an excellent place with excellent food, it was great dining experience. Very romantic too, a good place for a date but also good for a family celebration, birthdays, graduations. We went for fiancée birthday and they gifted us a free dessert at the end of the meal which was very thoughtful. The walls and tables on the inside of the building ha e soundproof barriers so you don't hear any noise from the street or from neighboring homes. 10/10 highly reccomend and will be returning!

    Dinners were well prepared…good, but not awesome. Menu somewhat limited. Waitress seemed rushed and sometimes awol, but other servers/‘bussers’ very attentive and welcoming. Recommend dining in garden area, or porch, rather than inside.
