It was good, we had to make a reservation and thought that would be fun because there should be a lot of people there it was half empty we went in at 7:30. The food was fine but there was a special menu so not many choices. We had looked at the online menu and had totally different things we were planning to order so we were a bit disappointed about that. Overall it was fine.

Food was over priced for Valentine’s Day. The lobster bisque didn’t have lobster and tasted like cream. Too much sauce on the entree to cover up the poor quality.

My husband and I usually enjoy North Beach Bistro very much. Although my husband's shrimp tacos were delicious, my “lump” crab cakes where mostly filling and claw meat. Very disappointing. The wedge salad was nice but too salty. We will be back and hope the next meal will be as good as they usually are.

We had the delicious and expertly prepared Crispy Calamari, Lobster Paella, Seared Scallops, Georgia Peach Bread Pudding, and a light, bright Italian Pinot Grigio. The after dinner coffee was excellent. This was our first time to eat here and we were very pleased, making my birthday dinner special and memorable. The attached Gallery 725 featuring original artwork for sale by Peter Max, Pablo Picasso, Alexandre Renoir, and local artists made our visit even more lovely. We will be back and bring friends!

A very enjoyable evening in a relaxing atmosphere. Our waitress was professional & shared good tips on the menu. My daughter & I shared the Bangin Shrimp which were crisp & juicy with a delicious spicy sauce. The calamari were perfectly fried as well. The tortellini special disappeared quickly. The entrees kept the trend going with seared scallops over a creamy risotto and a special of pork shank Osso Bucco. While we have enjoyed the bar & music before this was our first experience in the resturant. Unlike other resturants at the beach you are not crowded next to your neighbors. You can dine in comfort and converse with out shouting. The dining room is tasteful decorated and the seating comfortable. We will definitely be back.

North Beach Bistro has the absolute best lobster rolls and homemade pickles around. Love their spicy ketchup with fries as well. We drive 75+ minutes one way to dine here - it’s that good.

My husband and I enjoyed dinner at North Beach Bistro on Christmas Eve. Our first time, it was a great atmosphere. I was also impressed with the food options. We are new to Jax, there are a lot of great restaurants. However, we see a lot of repetitive items on local restaurant menus. North Beach had some good “fresh and new” choices. We will be back for sure!

Not really sure what I fancied to eat, so I ordered the cheeseburger with peppered bacon. Excellent choice! Most burgers go cold in the middle by the time I get there. Not so at North Beach. Stayed thoroughly hot, although I had to leave a little.

Family was in from out of town and we had been wanting to try someplace new so we picked North Beach Bistro. I thought everything was great and then noted that my very particular Aunt hadn’t one thing negative to say during the entire meal(never experienced that before). Great job on the entire dining experience. We’ll come back for sure. Thanks!

The menu has a wide variety of dishes from which to choose. Frence onion soup was piping hot and delish, the table was served with warm crusty bread and a wonderful spread. My lobster roll was chuck full of meat and my husbands fish and chips was spot on. The french fries are way too good! We both enjoyed our glass of white wine sangria. Our server Caitlyn was pleasant and attentive. We will return in the near future.

Always innovative, always super fresh, tonight we wanted to be special because we were celebrating two friends' birthdays. The appetizers we started with (calamari/fried spinach and oktoberfest pretzel with cheese) were exceptional. Two of us got the grouper special, one got fried shrimp and one got fish & chips... everyone raved about the freshness and the excellent preparation. We shared the special dessert of the day, chocolate/seasalt caramel flavors, and all agreed it was an exceptional dinner. Thank you, North Beach Bistro!

We have dined at this restaurant many times and it is always a very good experience. We would like to see them open in Mandarin as the drive to east Atlantic Blvd seems to getting longer and longer. It would also
fill a void as there are not many quality restaurants in Mandarin!
