My new favorite restaurant in St Augustine. This place was great… try the duck! Went their with some work colleagues all of us from out of town… great food, service and ambiance.
Preserved acknowledged our anniversary w a complimentary glass of sparkling wine—nice touch
The steak was amazing as ever!
Unfortunately we had to wait 20 min past our reservation time because the table they had reserved for us was needed by another larger group. Hopefully in future they can keep at least a closer to reservation time as it was hit waiting in the “lounge”
Watermelon salad was very good and refreshing. We were there n my birthday so they gave us a creme brûlée which was good. As said before the steak was amazing. Too bad the cream spinach didn’t live up to the other items.
Service was excellent.
Food was good though I was expecting much more for such a restaurant.
Great service, ambiance and fresh food.
Diane is the best server ever! We love her and The Preserved!!!
Beautiful setting. The kindest service and the food was great
We totally enjoyed the whole experience as we celebrated our wedding anniversary.
Not as good as last time
Terrific menu, great wine list, and outstanding service. We will definitely be back.
Friendly staffing, food was delicious and good portions
Best steak ever.
We can always count on Preserved indoor seating to create the ambiance of a special dinner. The service is always excellent and the food is exceptional.
Went for an anniversary dinner. The best table, the best staff and server (Diane was superior!), the best ambience! Oh...and the food, spot on! We both had steaks (filet and ribeye) with whipped potatoes and creamed spinach as sides. And the bread pudding for dessert was so unique and delicious! Can't wait to return!
Our reservation was to the minute when we arrived we were sat in a great outdoor table.waiter was fantastic and from NY .Food was all great that’s why we come back.All staff 5 star.We already reserved a night in August
Wonderful food! One of the best meals we have ever had, to be honest. Dined here for our 13th wedding anniversary and was blown away. The escargot and bouillabaisse was excellent. Highly recommend.
Great place, Great food & service. Sat outside, a little noisy from cars & motorcycles passing by,so if you want a little quieter eat inside. Short rib was Awesome....so was the Creme brûlée
Extremely creative entrees and starters. Superb wine list which I understand is going to be increasing very soon. I was excited to find such a wonderful Restaurant in St Augustine and cannot wait to go back.
Probably the most overrated restaurant in St Augustine. Trendy but terrible food. As a Foodie I rate them a Two at best!
On vacation in St. Augustine and we wanted a great meal with good atmosphere. Preserved delivered.
Awesome service and food and the place is immaculate I’ll be back soon
Absolutely fantastic experience! Couldn’t have asked for more.
Veggie Shepard’s pie was excellent and gluten free as well. Great value for the money.
Wonderful anniversary dinner cannot say enough about the ambiance, food and exceptional service .. had the seafood platter and scallops both were delicious!
The porch dining is the way to go, nice breeze, great atmosphere. Wine list is very good, Charcuterie Board was excellent. Specials Black Fish and Lamb Chops were excellent. Service was outstanding. One of the top if not the best in St. Augustine.
When did it become okay for tables of 4 or more to talk so loud and act like the restaurant was theirs? Not just at Preserved but anywhere anymore. It’s amazing how many ignorant people are out there.
Outstanding food - truly exceptional! Our server was quite busy and had many tables to take care of (perhaps too many?) the atmosphere and music made for a very memorable meal.
We came here from Miami to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. I was super excited since reviews are amazing. Food is great, one of the most delicious dinners I've had in a long time. Wine list is very interesting with great options. Service was a bit slow, our server was maybe new so we were waiting for sparkling water and few glasses of white wine around 15 minutes. We were refilling our red wine which is not a bother for me. Then he forgot to order our side dish so main courses arrived ten minutes before side of asparagus. In the end our waiter didn't know it's a birthday celebration even if I put it in when I made a reservation. He even asked us is it really a birthday or no... Overall, we enjoyed, nice dinner and delicious food!
Really great experience. The food and service were great, as was the location and ambiance.
Just as wonderful as I remember! Food is excellent. Love the charcuterie board.
It was our 30th anniversary and they brought us complimentary champagne. Our server was so sweet and very attentive. The wine list is amazing, as well as the craft beer list! My husband had the escargot for an appetizer and could not stop raving about the sauce that it came with! We both ordered steaks that were perfectly cooked. Sitting on the wrap around porch just added to ambiance of the evening. It was perfect!
Delicious food, great presentation.
Wonderful waitress. Great restaurant!
To be very picky, they could have removed plates quicker and replaced silverware.
Will definitely go back!
My daughter and I visited The Preserved for second time and it was wonderful. Food outstanding and our server Megan was the best. She served us on our first visit last year and we were happy to see her again.
We decided the ambiance of dining indoors was better than courtyard but both very satisfactory. We will be back.
This was the best meal I have had in a restaurant anywhere in the Southeast. Every element on my entree plate was perfectly seasoned, prepared and balanced. And I was delighted to have an excellent glass of wine to complement the the meal. This is destination dining.
We love Preserved and always go for brunch on Sunday. We are sad they will no longer be offering brunch and will be closed on Sunday. Since we live in Ponte Vedra we don't like driving at night so brunch worked better for us. Hopefully, they will reconsider!
It was the sweetest, most quaint restaurant we’ve dined in. The service was on point, the food was amazing, and the ambiance was so tranquil. They even surprised us with creme brûlée for our anniversary! ❤️ we’ll be back!
Meal was delicious. Staff was nice. Would recommend.
Good food, but they have named the two opossums that live in their outdoor patio "Chuckie & Cheese". One of the opossums circled our table and the wait staff attempted to make it seem like something endearing. Absolutely disgusting and unacceptable for such a high caliber restaurant.
The best of fine dining with a touch of comfort foods. Diverse local sourced foods offered in unique tasty presentations. Diners are offered choices of indoor or out door seating any of which can be a satisfying dining experience.
We were cared for by an exceptional waitstaff in an elegant yet resort casual setting. The staff has been well trained by the resident sommelier. The pairing suggestions are always spot on. Reservations highly recommended.
Blonde haired younger hostess greeted us with a somewhat snotty attitude which did not set our experience off on the right foot. We sat inside which is as dull and a bit underwhelming as far as decor. Our server was wonderful and the food was absolutely delicious. We’ll go back eventually to retry the outdoor seating which is beautiful.
