    As always had excellent meal at JJ‘s was a little disappointed the fish special was significantly higher cost than their menu items and it wasn’t brought to our attention at time of order however it was exceptional. The lamb chop starter was cooked perfectly and very tasty. Service was very good for what seemed like a busy Wednesday evening.

    An outstanding French bistro in Ponte Vedra. The only issue is last reservation is 7 pm during the week & 7:30 on weekends, too early for French or Latin American customers. An extensive wine list & many dining options including a variety of specials depending on the season. We are regulars & plan to continue to be.

    Service was random, servers 3 to be exact. No one owned the table creating the feeling of just get you out the door. Quiche a signature dish was not fresh as well as the fruit. Fries on the Hanger steak dish were limp, soggy and greasy. If you are going to be a 5 star restaurant with 5 star cuisine, detail is crucial. I enjoyed your SanMarco location in the past that's what brought me to Ponte Vedra. Disappointed on a special occasion.

    We we’re running late and called the rest auto let them know we were behind. When we arrived the owner was quite rude and said we had 5 minutes to order our dinner. Considering that we spent $233 for dinner he should be grateful to people that help his restaurant turn a profit. To tho the had the audacity to say we didn’t show. I’m happy to send in our receipt!

    Food was great! Excellent French Bistro. My wife and I look forward to our next visit. The Duck was perfect (crispy skin) and the Cassoulet was one of the best we have had. I ordered the lamb and it was literally falling off the bone, flavor was perfect. We asked for a wine pairing and we were happy with the bottle offered. Like I said we can’t wait to go back.

    Pate and Foie Gras appetizers lacked flavor and portion size was disproportionately small for the high prices. Braised lamb shank was very flavorful and the only standout of the evening. The duck confit was also quite good, but again portion size (one smallish leg) fell short of expectation given the price. Staff was knowledgeable and friendly, though the evening felt rushed and someone always wanted to clear plates - even with food remaining. The waiter “plopped” the dessert easel at our table before we’d finished entrees, because he’d just finished using it at an adjacent table - again, a sense of being rushed. The dessert selection was impressive, but the ambiance just wasn’t there to stay any longer and try one/two.

    Knew going in the service would be slow ( it is a Frech restaurant!) Most of the food was good with the exception of the chicken being a bit dry. MOST disappointing though was the dessert. I have had their desserts in the past and they were always great. So not sure if it was an off day or a bad batch, but the Caramel Fudge cake was extremely disappointing! Cake itself was dry and a couple of the bites had something very bitter in them. The caramel buttercream was rather tasteless as well. Super disappointing for a $15 slice of cake! I couldn't even make it 1/3 of the way through. I also noticed that the table behind us, who also ordered that cake, didn't finish their's either. The apple tart however, was amazing!!
