Perfect evening with wonderful food and service.
Wonderful food and staff.
Very nice experience. My wife and I had brunch and it was excellent. Flavors are expertly balanced. My wife had the eggs Benedict with fried oysters and I had the steak and eggs. Biscuits and gravy was excellent. We look forward to going back when we are in the area. Also don’t forget to visit their butcher shop. The butcher shop is why we decided to try the restaurant. (No they are not near each other)
All around an excellent spot for brunch. Interesting menu, solid wine list and good service. And fair prices.
My husband and I were celebrating our birthdays and couldn’t have asked for a more delicious experience! The food was amazing and I can’t wait to go back. The inside space isn’t very large which is nice, but you’ll need to make a reservation in advance! They also offer a brunch which I can’t wait to try. Enjoy!
Husband and I went for an early dinner date. It was our first time and everything was amazing. Megan was our server and she was extremely knowledgeable with the extensive wine list and menu. She recommended a few of her favorites and took her time explaining all of the items on the charcuterie board. We will definitely be back!.
Enjoyed the dinner, food was delicious can't wait to return I will try the shrimp and grits next time
Great COVID 19 friendly environment! Excellent food and service. A "must" place to go to get you and your loved one out of self quarantine.
Amazing food and service - great wine list but for older folks the print was near impossible to read in dim light - make it bold folks
We went to Preserved for my birthday. Wonderful wine list, we sat outside in the courtyard which was beautiful. The food was delicious (we had the short ribs and scallops) and they provided a birthday Creme brûlée. Our server was wonderful and we will definitely be back.
Great food. Great staff. Excellent social distancing.
Spot on service. Food is exceptional. Just a great overall experience!
Preserved is always a delight. Great atmosphere, they’ve done a beautiful job with the decor and setting. Presentation of the food is always gorgeous and service very well done. We’ve dined here many times and are never disappointed. PS The creme brûlée is authentic and outstanding!
Server with short bangs had such a snooty and rude demeanor. My only regret was leaving her 18% tip. She’s definitely
Loved it! And everyone wore masks and nobody complained!
We loved everything about the place. Calm and peaceful neighborhood away from the main center. Food quality as exquisite and service was fantastic. We highly recommend the restaurant.
Girls birthday dinner
Outstanding food- charcuterie board was exceptional- order the cheese. Dinner coq au vin yummy and chocolate/peanut butter dessert. Ambiance was nice- historic old house- we sat indoors but plenty of patio and outdoor seating available. Great place for an “occasion” celebration.
We always celebrate our anniversary at Preserved and have always been treated special. Plus everyone on staff pays special attention to our dogs!
We had a fabulous time, food was delicious, one of our favorite Saint Augustine servers, Dianne, waited on us. Excellent craft beer and wine options. Delicious oysters and perfect short ribs! A great night out.
Went for our 25th wedding Anniversary and I’m so happy we picked this restaurant. Ate outside on porch. Music, food and service was outstanding.
We will be coming back soon!
Always a great experience, great food and great service! Only place in St. Augustine I will drive from Jacksonville to dine.
My first visit. Wonderful. My son recommended it.
I have eaten there many times. Was one of my favorites. I repeat, was. The charcuterie plate is always good and this time the same tray as always. The meal itself however, was terrible. I had shrimp and grits with corn. There was a few kernels of corn under the risotto. The risotto was bland at best and topped with literally thawed bland shrimp that you can buy anywhere in the frozen food section. They were not then grilled, fried at even claim close to anything hot. Pathetically bland and disappointing. My friend had their pork chop and he said it was good but but his voice inflection did not support it nor did his eating. It had a FEW fingerling potatoes next to it. Wow. Wait for the sarcasm .... impressive. With the new restaurants popping up, Chef Brian needs to spend time back at the restaurant and less time at the chop shop before it’s too late
The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Presentation was also amazing. Would go back and try everything on their menu!
This place is always a pleasure. Service is great, menu changes regularly, and lovely wine selections. Their patio is beautiful as well. Very highly recommended.
Great food and service. Lovely décor. I would definitely go back
Impeccable. Quality, atmosphere, service. Fresh ingredients make a difference and that's what Preserved is all about. Every time I have ever been there it has been a Stellar experience.
Everything was perfect. It is an extremely charming restaurant. The service is spot on, the right amount of attention, super polite and accommodating. My wife had the short ribs, incredible, tender and super tasty, and I had the rib eye, and that was one of the best meals I have had in awhile. Desert of course had to be Creme Brulee to top it all off. If you are ever in town, this is a must.
Exceptional in every way
The food and service is consistently amazing! The quality of food, the variety of wines, the knowledgeable staff! We love this place and will be going back soon!
I always enjoy coming to Preserved Restaurant as it is one of our favorite spots in Saint Augustine. I have always had outstanding experiences with wonderful ambience, great food, and exemplary service. On this occasion, my fish was a good bit undercooked, a first for me here. It happens. I am usually hesitant to say anything, but thought the chef would want to know in this case So I merely mentioned it to our server. The staff responded beautifully, as they always do, and the rest of the meal was great as always. Thank you again.
Preserved is a great place to visit while In St Augustine. A beautiful southern home with indoor and outdoor seating.
The food was well crafted, the tomato tartar was flavorful and seasoned well. Oysters were fresh and fresh tasty. The Bouillabaisse was exceptional, fresh seafood, filled with flavor and cooked perfectly, scallop was glossy, flounder flaky and moist, mussels and shrimp tender.
Far better than our previous visit!
Service, food, ambience were outstanding. We will be back.
This restaurant was delish! Sat outside on the porch....if not for the mosquitos I could say it was stellar. LOL
Amazing food, Chef’s watermelon carpaccio was delicious, as well as the Ribeye, short ribs and shrimp and grits. Will definitely come back to this beautiful old house and great staff!
For our anniversary they gave us an option at brunch of sparkling wine or creme brûlée’.
Food was outstanding! Service was okay. She Wasn’t that friendly.
Everything about this restaurant was phenomenal! One of the best brunch spots I’ve ever been too. I can’t wait to come back for dinner soon.
Fantastic dinner! The charcuterie board alone was worth going! I will definitely be back!
