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.
Good food and service. Perfect for an adult dinner.
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
The food was delicious as always! The waitress was very friendly and helpful with menu descriptions. We had a great meal and experience!
Food was very delicious, well plated and service rocked!
Wonderful meal for my family. Everyone enjoyed their meals as well as the 4 desserts we took home to enjoy later.
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.
We went to celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary and we were so happy with our choice. Jessica, our server, was wonderful! The food and ambiance was great! If you haven’t experienced JJ Bistro, then you must go!
Excellent service and wonderful food! Very enjoyable evening!
The food is always excellent here and the server was very knowledgeable. We had a great dinner and service. It is worth the drive for us to go there.
Very friendly service. Great wines, great food, great desserts!
Always delicious! Wonderful, pleasantly quiet atmosphere and excellent service!!
First time and it was delicious.
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!
Our family of five chose JJs to celebrate an engagement. It was a wonderful evening. We loved the ambience and the service was outstanding. The food was also wonderful. Five days later my son was still talking about the meal. We will definitely be back.
Food is excellent, and portysre larger. Save room for desert!
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.
We had a fantastic experience at JJ’s! The wine, food and dessert on top of the stellar customer service have assured we will return in the near future !
JJ's always delights! It feels like stepping into Paris! Our waitress always remembers us and puts a fresh pot of decaf to brew up for me so it's hot and fresh to accompany their AMAZING dessert selections!
Great ambience in this little bistro and the food was wonderful. Portions were perfect for meal and desserts were large. Very good wine selection. Staff was very attentive and professional.
Went here for my girlfriend's birthday and it was absolutely delicious. The ambiance was very nice and the service was fantastic. Definitely will be back
Jessica was great
Met friends there, food was fabulous, the wine was divine, service impeccable!!
Unfortunately my lunch of crab salad and avocado was disappointing. The French onion soup and apple pecan desert I took to go were quite good.
Our waitress was great. Explained and clarified the food offering questions that we had. She spaced out all of the courses appropriately. We did everything perfect. The food and ambiance were great too.
Wonderful experience with great food.
We had a fantastic time!! The food was amazing and the service was friendly, knowledgeable, and patient with our party of 8.
Tops in food , service and decor....always great and look forward to coming back!
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.
Very romantic Valentine's dinner! Delicious food, lovely ambience and wonderful service!
This is a great place to eat wonderful French food. Excellent place for a date night. Save room for dessert!
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
A nice experience with exactly the feel of Paris we wanted. Our waitress was very attentive and did not hurry us in and out. Wine prices were some of the best in fine dining in Jacksonville.
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.
