    Greeter was rude. Having trouble with Uber we arrived 11 minutes late. 7:41 PM for a 7:30 reservation. Our greeter gave us grief for being late even though there were 3 empty tables and no one waiting. I apologized and explained our troubles with Uber but he continued to harp on it as he showed us our table. We finished our meal but I am not sure I will return. We have eaten there numerous times and the food is generally good but they can be arrogant and pompous.

    JJ the owner was rude and uninviting. He attempted to sell me extremely mediocre wine for an insane markup and charge an additional $30 corking fee for wine bought in his restaurant. He was unskilled in wine selection, thankfully his staff was skillful and was able to point me to a good selection. Service was amazing from both of our servers, but the appetizers were mediocre. Waited two hours for a rare steak, only to have it served well done. I asked for it to be recooked to have it served again well done on the outside and medium (ish) on the inside. Do not spend your money here. I would suggest the French pantry for actual French food. As context this was on Valentines Day and the restaurant was not busy.

    JJs ws very busy for a lunch on a Tuesday but service was outstanding nonetheless. And the food was outstanding as well. My friend had the quiche Lorraine and I ordered the country pate on baguette with French onion soup. We splurged to split a piece of German chocolate cake. We both said it was the best we had tasted in a long time. Pricing is a bit higher than at most other lunch options but given the always excellent food, service, and ambiance, the cost is well worth it. JJs never disappoints.

    We always enjoy dining here, and did this evening as usual. But, there were two annoyances. I had a special salmon appetizer that was delicious, but would have been nice to know that it was $30! My husband had the halibut special, also delicious but the halibut was barely lukewarm, plus the entree was $60! Although very expensive, we still may have likely ordered both, but the server should have advised us of prices beforehand.

    First time there. Sat down at a table and there were papers and pens there so you can fill out a sheet if you’re interested in ordering French macaroons that was a bit much, but wait there’s more there was a bottle of wine on the table with a green fluorescent paper attached to it advertising their $200 tasting dinner menu. Just too tacky for me. The food was OK but our server did not tell us about some of the specials that we heard him telling people at the table next to us when they sat down. French onion soup was very good. we had a couple of glasses of French wine, but we’re not told what label it came from which is odd. They seem to pride themselves on their wine had a table in the center of the restaurant that had wine bottles displayed that were very expensive and signs all around it saying do not touch are we in kindergarten? The room was nice but all the things I just mentioned made the experience feel very tacky, and it definitely took away from the ambiance. Too many other restaurants to go to this did not make the “return again list”.

    Excellent menu that features numerous options not found in the Ponte Vedra or Jax Beach area. It’s the real deal…Fine Dining. The Chilean Sea Bass and Duck/Beef entrees were standouts. Cordial greeting and excellent service throughout the meal…accommodated slight menu variations requested. Many excellent options of bottled wine and Champagne. Would suggest more options by the glass particularly in the champagne category.

    It has been a while since I ate in a restaurant where every aspect of the lunch experience was just right. Each of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal, so much so, that we made another reservation before leaving. For the next time, we joked(?) that we will each eat dessert first, then share one meal at the end. The pastry chef bakes fresh, beautiful desserts every morning beginning at 4 am.

    Disappointing. They used to have a delicious crab salad at lunch which they discontinued awhile back. My friend very much enjoyed the seafood chowder but the Caesar with chicken was heavily weighed down with a completely tasteless dressing. Salad was wilted and flat.

    My husband and I recently had lunch at JJs. He started with French onion soup and we split the salmon sandwich and the turkey, pear and Brie sandwich with Cesar salads on the side. Our meals were delicious and Austin provided outstanding service throughout in the very pleasant French setting. Highly recommended.

    An outstanding French restaurant in Ponte Vedra Beach. Great service, particularly by Jordan, and the owner JJ is friendly and a wine expert. All you need to do is tell him what type of wine you like, and he’ll give you options. He also sells wine by the case, half case, or by the bottle to take home. They have an outstanding wine list & inventory. And you can’t finish dinner without viewing the dessert menu. Many options to consider. Our favorite place in Ponte Vedra.
