                        Not as great as it used to be. It shows that they are not giving their all like they previously were. The beef in the tartare wasn’t as fresh, they are now using pre made crostini from Trois Petit Cochon rather than making their own. Was still good but overall seems like they are coasting and resting on their laurels.

                        The food was excellent. We dined there on our wedding night. We were seated inside at a quaint little table by a window. The servants were attentive and were very prepared and professional. Awesome dining experience!!

                        I enjoyed everything about my dining experience. We sat in the courtyard and it was lovely. The music choice was perfect and the wait staff was very knowledgeable of the food. I was also impressed with the beer and wine pairing suggestions. I can not wait to go back.

                        Service from start to finish was top notch. We were promptly greeted and seated. Our waiter Amon was one of the best servers we have had anywhere in a long time. The food was unique and outstanding, especially the strawberry chilled gazpacho, and the homemade ice cream for dessert. We have no complaints of any kind, and will definitely return if we are ever in the area again.

                        Ate on front porch which was lovely. Service was excellent. Both of us had the scallop dish and unfortunately it was disappointing. Scallops were perfectly cooked and presentation was wonderful but the tomato cream mustard vinaigrette tasted off to both of us. Dish also had peas, corn, pearl onions which should have added sweet notes to the dish but were overpowered by the sauce. That said I would definitely try this restaurant again and order something different.

                        We are from Savannah and were made aware of Preserved from a local show called Eat It And Like It. We came to St Augustine for a concert and decided to spend the weekend and this restaurant was on the top of the dining list. We were not disappointed. It was a rainy night, I had requested outside and was a bit apprehensive until we arrived and saw diners eating out. The way the outside is designed allowed relaxation and comfort as well as enjoying a bit of a magical experience eating while the rain was falling. The food was as exceptional as we were told. There is an extensive wine and beer list. Very impressive. We started with the Panzanella salad and it was absolutely divine. 3 of us ordered it and the 4th said that it took all of her willpower not to order it after she tasted her husband’s. Each dish was equally delicious including the desserts. Eamon was our server. Besides having a common geographical connection, he was a fantastic partner in our dining experience. He was very helpful with the questions as well as our dining choices. I would be remiss if I left out his assistant whose name we didn’t get, and was also a wonderful addition to this experience. Thank you for helping us have a very memorable evening with friends.

                        The service was great and the food was outstanding as always. Indoor seating is relatively small and so when full occupancy, can get a bit loud. Overall, great and will be back. It's actually the only place I dine when have work in St. Augustine

                        It was nice. Somewhat "Farmhouse"/"Farm to Table" predictable. The salads had nice flavor. The porkchop was good. The oysters were good. Predictable is the word. Would I rush back? Probably not. I'm confident there are comparable restaurants where the value exceeds the cost a bit better than here in the vicinity. Would I recommend it? Sure, give it a try.

                        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

                        Great restaurant in a lovely restored home. Service was prompt, food was excellent and I was surprised with crème brûlée for my Birthday.

                        Lovely Outdoor gardens, large wrap around porch and interior dining room all available for dining with the ultimate Southern hospitality. Service is impeccable and I give food and wine selections 5 stars. Our waiter was Amon and he is excellent.

                        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.
