Our experience was wonderful. Restaurant was quiet and peaceful, very relaxing. Food was great and service was good. Can’t ask for much more than that.

This is a large restaurant, which includes a separate bar area, a dining area, and access to the gallery next-door. The separation between the bar and dining room is very nice. It makes the noise level in the restaurant modest. Conversations are easily carried on. The table spacing is comfortable. The food and the service we’re both good, but no wow factor. That’s okay. This a restaurant that seems to have a loyal following because they have done a lot of things well enough.

Love this neighborhood gem of a reatuarant! The food and cocktails are always fresh, carefully crafted and delicious. They have a vibrant bar scene with live music that is tucked away on the others side of the restaurant and seems to be very popular. My only suggestion is that the server didnt bring bread and the delicious tapendane. We had to ask for it, which I think should be an automatic thing when guests get their drinks. I’ll be back again!

Very good choice for dinner (this was our first visit). We were a group of 8 and all the apps and entrees were all very tasty. Great desserts, too. This was a big football game weekend and the pace of service felt a little rushed; perhaps in anticipation of turning the table over. Nice wine options by the glass. I'd definitely go back next time I'm staying near Jax beach.

We went to North Beach Bistro for a quiet dinner so we could catch up with a couple of friends. Unfortunately, they had a wedding reception in the dining room so its was loud and chaotic. Booked reservation on Open Table so guess there was no way to proactively alert us to the situation. Still would have been nice of the hostess to alert us to the wedding before seating us.

Food was OK, two diners had half a chicken special.......one thought it was overcooked and the other got a tiny piece of chicken. My fish was very good and our other friend had prime rib sliders which she said were good.

Liked our waiter.

End of a very long travel day, Jacksonville Beach weather was blustery. The online info on North Beach Bistro looked to be just what two weary travelers wanted to eat. NBB delivered a fantastic meal and service, in spite of two loud parties nearby. It was Tuesday Night Burger & Beer night, and we quickly forgot the tempting menu offerings. My burger was cooked perfectly medium rare, and my toppings selections of sautéed 'shrooms and onions, plus blue cheese, made the combo taste like a steak dinner. I ate it open-faced with the lettuce and tomato sliced into a "side salad." What a tasty meal, and I rarely order a burger. This was delightfully waaaay more than typical.

Service and food was great. There were two very large and very, very noisy groups the night were there. The staff is to be commended for they way they all pitched in so that our food was well paced, timely and the staff maintained a calm and friendly demeanor. This is why I keep coming back!

Service was so-so. Server couldn't explain in detail what the features were. Tried to bring check before we were finished. Didn't get my CC back. Had to return. No apology. But, we generally have had good experiences here and will return.

Came in late on a Tuesday after the holiday and ended up eating in the lounge. Ordered specials and even though we were last ones to order got same good service and quality meal we are accustomed to. It's why we keep coming back.

Started with drinks in the bar -good live music. Got a Moscow mule, it was delicious. Moved to dining area, attentive service. Fried green tomato app was YUM. Prime rib sliders were good but not something I would return to restaurant to have again. Others in my party (got filet oscar and chicken dish) enjoyed their meals without complaint. Overall, 4 out of 5 stars.

I had shrimp scampi and the Pasta was overcooked there wasn't enough butter and garlic in the dish to make it very tasty .It was a little bit too tart. The dessert wasn't what I had expected either. We had the Georgia peach bread pudding the peaches really didn't have any taste.

Arriving for brunch on Sunday, the restaurant was really crowded. Despite the crowd, the bartender and Katelyn, our waitress, did a great job waiting on everyone. I had the BBQ chicken sandwich which was excellent. Looking forward to our next visit.

This is a great go to restaurant,never been disappointed until this last Tuesday. We came in for the Kobe Burger Special on Tuesday. After making an inquiry about a cocktail,the waiter let me know if I made a change to the drink I would have to pay for the drink anyway ( understood ) when asked about the hummus our waiter informed us that it wasn't cost effective since we were only having a burger. Please don't advertise the special if you don't want customers to enjoy without being made to feel less than.

A small group of us came here for brunch for a birthday. The food was delicious, mimosas were great and it wasn't too pricey. They had good music playing but not too loud, and it wasn't packed so we were able to talk amongst ourselves. I would recommend coming here for brunch, and I am sure their lunch and dinner food is great too!

We decided to try this restaurant for dinner after a bad experience for Sunday Brunch a few weeks ago because of the good reviews. It was exactly the same really bad service and half the food had to be sent back. Here are some examples: at the bar we ordered drinks and a couple appetizers the waitress was at the bar, our drinks came out then our appetizers came out and she is still there waiting for 3-4 other tables drinks so she could bring them out all at once, really? Then in the dining room I had fish and chips the french fries were all little broken pieces not one whole fry? My wife had a flat bread that was not cooked at all, everything was raw, yea. In the dining room we had the same waitress as for Sunday Brunch and she was exactly the same walked by our table 3-4 times could not get her attention, it was like she had blinders, I had to get up and follow her to the kitchen. Pass on this place the reviews must be their friends.....

Sunday Brunch in the lounge area is always a great experience. Excellent service is consistently the norm, this time with Lavonda. Can't miss with the kobe burger with spicy ketchup. My wife enjoyed her mac and cheese which now comes in a smaller size. Eggs Benedict is our favorite from the brunch menu. Other meals we have enjoyed in the past include fish and chips, grilled chicken sandwich, and also the fish sandwich.

Although this has been one of our favorites over the years, we were disappointed on our last visit and decided that, if we ever go on a Tuesday, we'll have to have the burger. We ordered from the regular menu last Tuesday and our food seemed to have been neglected in the rush to get all the burgers out. My eggplant parm stack was soggy as if it had been sitting for quite a while. Also, when we preferred a booth, we were told that none were available and nor offered the waiting for one option even though one became available in a very few minutes.

First time dining here and the food was absolutely delicious. Celebrating Father's Day and my husband enjoyed his meal so much he couldn't stop sharing his experience. I had the 3 course special, surf and turf and the portions were perfect and really tasty. My husband had the fish and chips, which was cooked perfectly. Our children had the fish tacos and Mayport shrimp. Everyone enjoyed their meal.
