                        Excellent food and service. Does not disappoint. Beautiful restaurant and played good music when we were there. I had the pork chop that was very good. Large selection of wines. Five star experience. Well deserved James Beard nomination

                        Awesome as always, This is our annual tradition for our wedding anniversary. And of course, being local, we come here just for date night as well, we just don't get dressed in wedding appeal on those nights.

                        Preserved was a special experience. We were seated on their covered porch on a beautiful St Augustine night. Everyone was very welcoming from the hostess to our waitress. We ordered the potato leek soup & steak tartar, both delicious. We shared the arugula salad. Our entrees were boullebaise & scallops, they were both so delicious. We capped our meal with crème brûlée with fruit. I highly recommend this restaurant.

                        We arrived at 5:30 for a 6pm dinner reservation and asked if we could have a glass of wine outside before going inside at 6 pm. We were rudely told that we had to go to our table if we wanted a drink. There was plenty of seating outside. Poorly handled.

                        Only disappointment was in the coffee selection available or should I say lack of. Unfortunately, my wife is allergic to caffeine and they only serve caffeinated coffee.

                        Food was outstanding. Located in a beautiful, historic home. In Lincolnville, walking distance from Old Town St. Augustine. Absolutely top notch! Free on-site parking available; many cute-to-fancy short term rentals available in the area, too.

                        The food was good however they were out of 2 wines that we tried to order . Service was slow and we had several different servers come by- but they also took our bottle of wine to a separate location- which we found a little odd. So when you wanted another glass of your wine you sometimes had to wait for your server . The pork chop was delicious- would recommend that dish

                        The staff initially were so rude in that we walked in the front door INSTEAD of walking to the side. We were treated like idiots for something that seems logical. We were seated and waitress was nice but Sun was in our eyes the entire time with staff (really just one lady hostesses) being rude to other people. Do not recommend over other great options in St Augustine.

                        The food was absolutely fantastic and saved the evening as our server was often absent. We waited too long for our water to be refilled and dirty dishes to be removed. The dessert was very slow to arrive, we almost gave up on that. The manager, I believe, noticed and comped appropriately. The food and the beautiful outdoor seating , will bring us back!

                        Very nice decor and atmosphere. Service was good at the beginning but was very slow after the serving of the entrees. One of the meals was cold and had to be sent back to be reheated. The manager comp our 2 glass of wine for the cold meal and slow service.
