The perfect neighborhood restaurant. very attentive and friendly service... Caesar salad on target... lamb lollipops delicious! Great value!
Nice restaurant with good food and service. One of my favorite places in town
Nice brunch selection with pleasant, attentive service.
LOVE O’Brien’s Bistro!! Great variety in their menu, food is always delicious, the waiter/waitress staff are all amazing and friendly, and the owners strive to know you and make you feel like family. It is my favorite lunchtime go-to and a Pensacola culinary treasure!
We had a enjoyable family dinner. 5:15 on a Sunday, prior to the big dinner rush. Meal was great and the service was prompt and attentive. Fair value and good food.
Appetizers were delicious had the French onion soup and Parmesan crusted scallops. Split the Sirloin was a tad dissatisfied the meat quality was amazing but flavor was subpar very little seasoning but over all decent.
Nice evening. Good food, and good service
Wonderful steak & absolutely outstanding seafood! Family had the smoked salmon, tuna poke, & flat iron with blue cheese and it was one of the best dining experiences we have ever had when visiting Pensacola. Hats off to the chef and servers for the wonderful experience!
As always, excellent service and food!
Excellent restaurant! The food is always delicious and the service is very attentive.
We love this place ! Always a great date night ! Highly recommend. Great service, great food, amazing desserts.
Most of the food, soups and 1 entree very flavorful. The other diner found her grouper over sauced and the sauce bland. Generous portions. Great service and ambiance. Noise level accommodated quiet conversation
As always, awesome food, service and atmosphere. A hidden GEM!
Four of us celebrated Mother's Day Brunch. Omelet's and Benedict's were tasty-coffee was excellent. Service was very attentive. Excellent choice for a very popular Day.
They’ve added a bar! This makes a huge impact on our future dinning options. Really had a great evening.
Their Sunday afternoon brunch was great! We had an array of different food (crab cakes, cheeseburger, omelet) and all were outstanding.
Another great meal. As always, the food was excellent as was the service.
Food was delicious and service was outstanding. Daniel made the experience with great wine pairing and flavor suggestions.
Another great meal, as always, great food, great service!
Food is always excellent, well prepared, diverse and creative. Ambiance is good and it is quiet enough for good conversation. Service is also very good and wait staff appears to be well trained.
Food was delicious! Service was great! Can't wait to go back again and try something else, want to try each of the dishes, so far, all are excellent!
I had the Jerk Mahi Mahi with Coconut Risotto...scrumptious! My date had the Stuffed Grouper and enjoyed every bite!
I will say this if u are a long time fan of O"Briens you may be disappointed in the bread pudding as I was..New owner, New recipe.
Our "go to" restaurant for years... and still is. Special way to celebrate our wedding anniversary, especially in the days of Covid restrictions.
Excellent service from Daniel! Food was wonderful and reasonably priced. We had outdoor seating. Would definitely recommend!
Always great place we love it soup was great
What a great discovery! Had a hard time deciding, it was all good.
The food was excellent as always. Service was okay.
Always great food and service! Never disappointed.
Everything was great, the food is as you liked it.
Excellent as always all the way around!
In town for business overnight.
Chose O'Briens as wanted a locally owned and run restaurant.
Please with the value, and range of choice.
Drinks & food menu a good range.
Service very good - even though we arrived somewhat later in the evening.
Food tasted good, and would return.
The ambiance was a little dated, and took away from the food and service experience.
But, I am pleased to support a local business, and encourage others to do the same!
Easter brunch at O’Brien’s for our party of 5 was perfect. Thank you!!
We heard a lot about this place so decided to try it for Easter lunch. Menu had a lot of selections. The food was average and some of it was not hot. Waiter was very attentive so that was nice. I wouldn't go out of my way to return - just average.
We were rushed out of the restaurant per our server Don N. via the “owner.” We made reservations and everything and wanted to take our time eating our mediocre appetizer (oyster Rockefeller) and drink. The server was in a rush from the time we sat down and we told him it was our first time there. The entire experience was horrible and I wouldn’t eat at this restaurant if it was the last one in Pensacola. Since we were the only black people in the restaurant, we believe we were discriminated against. There were ample booths and tables available, so why would the owner send the server to tell us there was a 1 p.m. reservation at the SPECIFIC booth we were occupying? We don’t appreciate the disrespect received. We do not recommend this restaurant to anyone, especially people of color.
We wanted to eat close to the hospital and found the restaurant in Google maps. All of our food was surprisingly outstanding. I live in Nashville where they have a lot of great chefs. The food we had was on par with anywhere I've eaten and the price was reasonable. We will eat here again.
Great place!! Wife and I like going there for lunch or dinner. Service is Good and food quality excellent with wonderful daily specials.
It is always a pleasure to eat at OBriends. It is a favorite meeting place for lunch with my friends. Service is always good, Daniel is especially outstanding as a server. We are always happy when he has our table. Plus their outdoor seating is perfect, not crowded and nice outdoor space.
This is not French. Very average food with an ambiance of an American diner.
