Enjoyed a quiet leisurely meal. Didn't feel rushed. Had a chance to enjoy each course. The brie was fantastic. Nice salad to go with the meal. I had the nightly special which was salmon and shrimp en papillote with asparagus. It was great. My friend had the Coquille St. Jacque. The scallops were very large sea scallops and they looked delicious.

We both had the bread pudding for dessert. I think we might have done better with another choice. Everyone makes their bread pudding differently, but we found it to be a little dry. It was not served with any type of sauce or ice cream which might have improved it a little. Good taste, but lacking something.

Overall a very good experience and we would return.

The food was terrible. The veal was extremely tough and tasteless, and the steak was like shoe leather.

This restaurant is a hidden gem in Jacksonville and I am so grateful we chose to dine there. The restaurant itself is small and intimate with lovely interior design so you feel as if you are in France. There are many good options from the menu to choose from and we chose the scallops as an appetizer and the canard/duck and mussels for our main course. Everything was delicious! Magnifique! Our server was attentive but didn't hover allowing us to enjoy the food and good conversation in a relaxed atmosphere. We were able to meet Matt, the owner/manager and share how much we enjoyed ourselves. We will certainly return and recommend the restaurant on Gate Parkway without hesitation. Merci Beaucoup!

A bit disappointed that they charged close to an additional $30 Just to serve a bottle of wine that I bought from the restaurant that cost $34.. Scallop appetizer was extremely overpriced 2 scallops for $16. The bread that came with the appetizer for the mussels it was rock hard and only one tiny piece. We were there towards the end of the evening and I overheard one of the waitresses making a comment to another customer that was a bit negative about their operating hours. underwhelmed

Was looking for a new-to-us place to try for my wife's birthday dinner. We sat at an outside table because the weather was perfect and it was right at sunset. I had the duck and my wife had the salmon and both were delicious and nicely displayed. Our server matched the professional, knowledgeable service that you expect at fine restaurants. This is a fine restaurant, but presents humbly with its location (strip mall) and prices that aren't quite as high as other french eateries. Also, for those interested, much of the menu either is GF or can be made so. Oh! And the inside is painted with scenes of Paris and even has a model Eiffel tower :)

The waitress was great. She knew the food and wine really well. The food was good, not great which reduced the overall value. The appetizers we the best part of the meal. We were also at our table for over two hours and never felt rushed. Overall it was a good experience.

What an incredible experience! We stumbled upon this hidden gem and were beyond impressed! The ambiance was surprisingly wonderful with the Parisian touches, the food was amazing and the service was fantastic (Jessica was top notch). We had the escargot, steak, boeuf bourguignon, and our kids had burgers. We had the lemon tart and pistachio macarons for dessert. We loved it all! Highly recommend! We will absolutely be back!

Didn't realize this little gem was in Jacksonville (it's only been open 16 years ). We went to the Gate Parkway location. The French food was amazing. The desserts were decadent. The ambience was quaint. The service was incredible. We will be going back frequently. I highly recommend!

For the last couple of times, the onion soup and escargot were excellent!! But not very impressed by mussels which didn’t taste fresh and main plates which were salty. Overall ambience was great. Recommend this place for casual date nights :)

The atmosphere was relaxing and the staff was great, very professional and attentive.
We ordered the escargot which was okay nothing stood out about the taste it was cooked correctly which can be hard for some restaurants. The duck & vegetables were over cooked and the risotto was under cooked, our salads seemed to have all of the pieces of greens that you would throw away & tasted bitter. Lastly my water glass had lipstick on the rim from a previous customer.
I heard great things about the restaurant unfortunately I did not have that experience.

As much as I want to give an exceptional review I am unable. First...what French restaurant does not have escargot? Especially on an event night like valentines. That's a huge miss! Tge steak was great, the crab beignets were exceptional! The diver scallops are absolutely amazing!

Ambiance and service were very nice. Would my choice for top French but good place.

We've been here several times and usually really enjoy everything. Tonight though most everything was off. The crab beignets were way undercooked and my daughters Chicken cordon bleu tasted great but lacked that crispy outter coating. We will come.back as everyone has an off night just will be awhile.before we do

Exceptional food and service. The service certainly sets JJ’s Bistro apart from the others. Attentive but not intrusive. It is a wonderful restaurant to celebrate a special occasion. Just a side note. Save room for dessert. The dessert menu is extensive and delicious. I would definitely recommend JJ’s Bistro de Paris.
