JJ's Liberty Bistro
Excellent food, service and unbelievable deserts!
I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home.
First time dinning there and it was delicious! We ordered the lamb shank and bou
Best restaurant in the Jacksonville area.
We love JJ's. Delicious food and well informed staff on wine and specials. Our new favorite place in Ponte Vedra Beach!
Wow!!! The food is always great but the entree specials were especially yummy this past Saturday. Ben always does an excellent job taking care of us.
Lamb shank in red wine reduction was outstanding. Salad dressing on the mixed greens...perfect. Wine list needs updating. Service not quite as good as the food.
Excellent food - authentically French! Great wine list served by highly knowledgeable staff. Vibrant, if dated decor, we make sure we visit JJ’s every time we’re in Ponte Vedra!
I have become disenchanted with JJ's. I do not find that much on the menu that fits my idea of a french restaurant. I get disappointed in the waiter's arrogant attitude; I would prefer a waiter who is more cordial and interested in the guests. We told the waiter and owner we were celebrating a birthday but neither made any effort to do anything special for us.
We recently had our first experience at JJ's Liberty Bistro to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was beyond expectations! The vichysssoise was perfect as well as the fresh Caesar salad. The broiled scallops and salmon entrees were excellent and then ..... oh my .... dessert!! From a fabulous selection we chose cheesecake and chocolate mousse .... to die for!! All in all, it was a very romantic evening with an unbelievable wine selection! Can't wait to go back!!
Another great dinner!
Love the outdoor patio. Had the night's special, monkfish. Absolutely terrific!
Paired with JJ's choice of wine we were set! Also had the rare oysters and were thrilled.. never had better.
Unbelievable lamb shank and bouillabase. Everything was perfect including the service. Had a boubon pecan thing for desert. I was beyond stuffed. But every calorie worth it
I celebrated my anniversary there. There were pros and cons. I noted it was a special event and nothing. I was on vacation as don’t live here and chose here for anniversary dinner. So I would say if you like a little acknowledgement for a special occasion this maybe not it. My bigger issue was My waiter had Zero personally. Never smiled. Definitely gave us vibe he wanted to be somewhere else. I could hear other wait staff telling people things about menu faves and not us. On the plus side they paid attention to me wanting a private seat. The fish and duck were all amazing. Best meal I had on vacation. Just sad I had to watch other tables with nice engaging wait staff and not us. The woman at the front is great. Research your waiter and absolutely go and enjoy! Great dessert too!
One of the best meals I’ve had outside of Europe. Everything was prepared perfectly the owner JJ selected a delicious wine for us after telling him the varietal we were interested in. I will definitely be returning the next time we’re in Ponte Vedra
My husband and I went to JJ’s to enjoy a rare dinner out and we decided to sit inside - and for awhile it was just us in the room. The place has wonderful, Romantic atmosphere and you could easily imagine that you are dining in France. The waiter answered every question and whim - and we had the most wonderful meal from the mussels appetizer to the chocolate raspberry cake dessert. As an entrée, my husband ordered the duck and I had the cedar plank salmon and they were both excellent! He raved about the mussels as well :-). We are already planning our next visit!
Neighborhood gem! Delicious food and wine. Great for everyday, business and special occasions!
Wonderful; my new favorite place!
Brusque service set the tone for an overpriced, mediocre meal. The food was overly salted, especially the lobster bisque.
Great food, wonderful waiters (Jordan & Ben) and JJ (owner) is very personable, friendly and knowledgeable about wine. Have never gone wrong with his recommendations.
Food was fantastic as always. Ben provides great service. A must dine location!!
Owner is a very gracious host, with excellent wine suggestions. The service is always on point and the Chef’s specials and seasonal menus never disappoints.
Perfect in every respect.
excellent choice for dinner, desserts and wine selection
Great food, service, and caviar.
Had another great meal at JJ's on Friday. Really enjoyed the lamb shank and the wines.
Nice place with good food and staff. Cozy ambiance with a wonderful wine list and excellent pricing.
Fantastic food and service. We are never disappointed. Jordan takes good care of us every time we dine.
Fantastic food, great selection of wine, and ownership that makes you feel at home.
As good as it gets. Prix fixe menu is always a great choice.
This is our go to place for great intimate ambiance and fine food. Menu includes French classics and interesting seafood interpretations. Proprietor knows his wines so be forewarned -- hint Grande Bateau Blache for everyday consumption and huge range of French wines etc..
This is a gem you don't want to miss in PVB. A major wine retailer and a French Bistro JJ's has a great vibe and really good food. The service is great too!
Ate outside on patio. Once again an outstanding experience for food quality and service.
I met a dear friend for lunch. The food was outstanding. The service not so much. The server disappeared several times. Then he was more concerned that his shift was over. Too bad it’s a great place.
What a great experience. We have lived within a few miles of JJ's Ponte Vedra for years and have never tried until now. What a mistake!
From the warm greeting, to the well decorated interior we felt immediately whisked away to somewhere in France! Our waiter was attentive and immediately offered up two glasses of champagne as we perused the menu.
The wine list was amazing and of great value, unlike many mainstream fine dining establishments. As well, the food menu was top notch offering everything from charcuterie to home made pastries. JJ was there in the flesh and stopped by our table to make sure we were pleased with the experience. We were and JJ's in now on our typical rotation.
Everything was so good, started with champagne, the
Pork belly special was amazing, so many desserts to choose from. Decided on the Black Forest cake which was amazing and would love to go there just for dessert sometime. Everything so good.
Food was fantastic as always. Best home made desserts in the entire world!!!! Jordan takes great care of us anytime we dine.
J.J Bistro never disappoints. The food is great and the service was fantastic.
Awesome spot. Love coming here.
