Excellent food, with a nice variety of options. I had the Duck, while my buddy had the Beef, and we both liked our entrees very much. Had the cheese and pate platter for an appetizer. Slightly overpriced, but overall very good. Dessert was excellent.French onion soup was very good too. Service was excellent and attentive. Would definitely return if in the area.

Second time eating here and it was just as good, if not better, than the first! Save room for dessert! And prepare to dine leisurely as your wonderful waiter/waitress courses your meal perfectly!!! It's like being back in Europe and truly having a meal worth savoring.

I really like this restaurant. The food is consistently good and the service a notch above ( thanks Jodie!) Tonight was no different. Sitting outside, while it feels safer in this time of Covid comes with a bit of road noise from Gare Parkway.

JJ's Bistro de Paris is truly one of the City's most delightful gems. The word that comes most to mind is authentic, it really reminds me of the wonderful meals I enjoyed in Paris. Great wine list and recommendations, exceptionally friendly and attentive service and exquisite food. The Bouillabaisse is a favorite, the stock flavoring is perfect. Brie en croute always greatly pleases as does the pate. Patisserie case also remarkable. Never had a meal there that didn't delight and frequently take out of town guests there.

I ordered the fromage and for the price I was expecting a traditional charcuterie board. Not the case at all. The presentation was weak. It came with two tiny wedges of cheese, 1 tablespoon of glazed walnuts and strawberries in a balsamic reduction with a basket of crostini’s for $14 bucks!! The crab crusted salmon was moist and flavorful. They had an interesting dessert selection however everything was out.

we were looking for a restaurant that could accommodate our family of 10. JJ's was extremely helpful by putting us in a small private room. The service was fantastic and the food was beyond expectations. Our goal was to find a restaurant that would accommodate us, but in the end, we found a new favorite. The interior is super cute and makes you feel like you truly are in a small Parisian cafe. I highly recommend JJ's!

Our favorite restaurant in town! Perfect ambience for a nice, quiet and/or romantic meal. Lovely wall murals of Paris courtyard surrounding the diners. Wait staff and owners are always welcoming, warm and inviting. The food is spectacular. We've gone there for many years and have never had anything but a top-notch meal and service!
While we generally go there for dinner, their lunches are wonderful as well. Can't say enough good things about it!

The food was excellent. We had the escargot and Brie appetizers. They were so good. The salads were fresh and the house dressing was very light. The entrees were all very good. We had the chicken cordon, shrimp and scallops risotto and duck over a salad. Everyone said they loved it. Service was exceptional. It was my mother’s birthday and they even decorated the table. Prices very reasonable and wine list is extensive. If you want a great date or just great food I would recommend it. Save room for dessert. They have a lot and they are all good.

A very interesting find in a small strip mall. Small restaurant, tables nicely spaced, not crammed together. Not many patrons. The service was quick and responsive. The interior of the restaurant has been hand painted to look like a Paris street scene, with shops and businesses portrayed. The perspective is designed to look like street corners when there are actually no corners. I had to get up from my table just to convince my eyes that the wall was actually flat. Anyway, the food was excellent, the service attentive, and the server friendly. Great wine suggestions. I don't live in Jacksonville, so I hope I have a chance to go back.

We visited JJ’s for Valentine’s Day. The food was excellent however the menu on Open Table and their website wasn’t what was offered. When I asked about the mussels my wife and I were looking forward to and didn’t see on the menu we were told they were no longer available. A little disappointing, but the lamb appetizer was excellent as well.
All in all a nice dinner and we’ll be back.

I was very excited about the potential of a good French restaurant close to me. The online menu looked good, and I booked a table for two for Valentines day. When we arrived at 7pm the place was only moderately busy (and was easily 60% empty by the time we left). The first turn off was they were running an abbreviated menu for the special day with a few new items, but mostly just a few of the exact same items on the regular menu but with price increased by 30%. The next turn off was for a fine dinning establishment where I expected to easily spend 200$ for the two of us, they had a paper cover over the table cloth.. the only place I expect to eat on paper is at a crab cracking restaurant.. The food was really plain and mediocre. The soup could have come out of can for all the flavor it had. For restaurant that was not full, it took forever to get food. We were at the table for 30 minutes for bread butter was served, and 45 before salad came out, and a full hour before soup appetizer came out. The only upside to the evening was that our server was very warm and polite. All in all, not someplace I could recommend to anyone.

My wife and I have had the pleasure of dining at JJs a number of times now. On this evening, they were nice enough to allow me to drop off some flowers in the early evening and then had placed them on the table for our date night. The escargot, soups, and seafood has been wonderful on each of our visits. I can’t wait to try the New York strip

The food was ok, nothing spectacular or unmemorable. Based on the reviews, I was expecting more authentic flavors and seasoning. It is ok.
Service was great, it just that the food for the price I was paying for it wasnt at the same level.

What a disappointment. We arrived to a virtually empty restaurant at 7pm on a Saturday night. We were seated against a lonely wall despite the restaurant being empty, which we did not complain about. However, things went downhill from there. The waitress did not know the wines. We asked if there was a sommelier and she said yes, but he was busy cooking and despite our requests she refused to let us talk to him. Through a lot of awkward trial and error we found a decent wine. Then the food arrived, and my wife’s beef bourguignon was dry and mealy. The most surprising thing, and the reason I am writing this review, is how we were treated after that. At first we politely pointed out the problem but after quite a long time it was clear we were being ignored. We then asked again that the problem be addressed (my meal was finished by this point but nobody had addressed my wife’s problem). This time the manager came out again and acted quite put off. She argued that actually the food was quite good and that we must be mistaken. We weren’t asking for any favors, but typically when a customer is unhappy with their meal it is recooked or some other accommodation is made. Not here. We were treated extremely rudely after that and the manager walked away in anger apparently because we had questioned their quality in the first place. We found this to be shockingly bad service and will never go there again despite it being a ver short distance from out home. Not sure how they stay in business.
