Excellent fine dining experience, the price is better than what you would expect from a 5 star establishment, the service was outstanding, the food was magnificent. Sunday brunch, for me, was the best time. Overall a wonderful time, rich food, delicious mimosa's and a great way to start a Sunday!

There were 2 large parties in two rooms. We were seated in one of these rooms and told there were no other tables available. Because of the noise from the large party we had to shout to hear each other. The servers were very busy with the large party, so service was slow. It made for a miserable experience. When you are paying top dollar for a meal, you should not have to shout to converse across the table. I won't be going back.

Although we found the prices a bit high, the food was well presented and above average, the decor was in keeping with French theme, but the waiter’s knowledge of the menu and desire to please made that extra difference!

We always go to Orsay for special occasions. It never disappoints. If I lived closer I'd be there a lot more to take advantage of their happy hour during the week. The bar is lively enough but you still feel like you can find a spot there to sit and eat or drink. The front room is nice for a quieter, more intimate setting. Favorite restaurant in Jacksonville.

A long-time friend from LA and I went to Orsay for Gal-entine's dinner. It was perfect. I had escargot which was delicious, she had a salad to start. Then I had steak frites which was flavorful and my friend had lobster risotto. We shared a bottle of rose champagne and ended with "drinkable" chocolate which reminded us of our recent girls' trip to France. Definitely recommended!

I wasn't impressed. I was a little irritated that there was approximately a 1ft gap between the us and the table next to us, which was a table of 4. We basically made it a table of 6 because we were so close. It made conversation between my wife and I a little awkward because the other table can hear every word without trying, and vise versa. It was Valentine's Day, so i'm not sure if this is normal. I get that they try to accommodate everyone, but cramming as many people into the restaurant as possible doesn't make for a romantic atmosphere. The service wasn't very attentive. We probably saw our server a grand total of 5 times. Had to wait 10 minutes for my ice tea to be refilled. And when the waiter finally refilled it, he left the pitcher at the table for me to refill my own glass. I would think with them being an upscale restaurant I wouldn't have to refill my own glass. His lack of attentiveness probably goes along with the overbooking that occurred. Furthermore, I wasn't impressed with my steak. I don't mind paying a decent amount of money for great steak, but the rib-eye steak wasn't worth the $50.00 that they were charging. I will say that the shrimp cocktail and the lobster bisque were good and that my wife enjoyed her filet mignon.

My first trip to Orsay was ok. Food was delicious and portions were good. Presentation was nice. We went for valentines Day and I have to say the service was good but not exceptional. The waiter was passionate about the items on the menu but food was slow appearing at the table. Could just be because it was busy. It was so loud in the dining room that it was a challenge to have a conversation without shouting. I just feel that for what you get it is overpriced. There are other places to go for dinner where you will get food of the same quality for a much better price. Will have to try lunch there once and see if my opinion changes...

Seems like a Farm to table atmosphere with a classy touch. I enjoyed the grilled Oysters, the Lobster Mac and the hubby loved the Beef Stragonoff. The gin spritzer drink was overrated and overpriced, in my opinion. I will return..

Food is almost always excellent. Server engaging. Once we got our meals had to ask for a coffee refill once had server’s attention. Then never was offered a second refill Has gone from our favorite go to to an occasional choice.

It was our wedding anniversary which we noted on Open Table
Never acknowledged by any of staff.

We went for our dating anniversary, and it was nothing short of the perfect choice. It had a lively, yet intimate feel. They sat us in the corner booth, which was super comfortable and romantic. The entire staff was very polite and accommodating. The food was to die for and was very fresh. Not to mention, they have a complete gluten free menu which makes anyone with a allergy feel safe when ordering. We highly recommend Orsay for anyone celebrating a special occasion or just want a nice romantic evening.

We were taken by immediately on time for our reservation by our hostess . She was friendly. It was my first time and my friends I was with had been many times. Recommendations were all on point that evening from small plates to our main meal. Yet deserts were very disappointing. Which was a huge surprise. We were not offered anything else to try. The deserts were taken off the bill which was the right thing to do. We didn’t ask but it was done. Prime rib was fabulous and the pear martini was my favorite of he evening. Our service was slow as the night continued on. One gal w us waited for a while for her drinks. We do not know the tall blonde servers name as she didn’t introduce herself. She was polite. Our food service though as to when it came out was great! I’d come back for the food for sure. Service left much to be desired on the professional level and attentiveness to the table that evening . We also had a guest meeting us and we told the hostess stand . After 30 minutes of being told we weren’t preset by the hostess our friend was leaving . We decided to get up and look for her as we thought her being a no show was bizarre. She was getting ready to leave actually. No one came to the other side of the restaurant where we were seated to look for us. Orsay has delicious food which is a 5 Star but the service for us that evening was not.

Normally this is our #1 spot for date night. But this time we had some (very) small disappointments. First, the music is always energetic and on the loud side; normally we aren't directly under speakers but this time we were; our server was nice enough to have it turned down BUT you should be able to have a normal conversation without shouting. Second, I've never been served a martini in a champagne glass; the kind with the short stem and rounded lip. It's hard to sip when your 3-olives-on-a-toothpick is jabbing you in the nose. That's why real martini glasses have tall stems and wide "mouths" that are in a V shape. But the Beef Strogonoff was outstanding; onion soup divine; duck rilette very nice.
