Town Hall is so fabulous! They always take such good care of us. The bottomless mimosas are the icing on a fabulous cake!!

Visiting the area and enjoyed a wonderful Sunday brunch. Everything was creative and fresh. The bottomless mimosas were great...2 gave me a definite buzz! If you’re not having at least 2, it’s probably not worth the bottomless though. We’ll definitely enjoy again the next time we’re in town.

Townhall was wonderful, what made it even better was the exceptional service. The flavoring of food was just right. They have vegetarian/vegan options but very limited. I believe they had 4 vegetarian options, including a $18 cauliflower steak, which was decent but definitely not $18 worth. But, overall the experience was wonderful. Will definitely go back.

We were greeted and sat promptly at our reservation time.
Food and service were excellent.
Only criticism I have is the seating arrangements are rather crowded.

The service was extremely slow. Over 1.5 hours to get the food we ordered. The staff was nice but seems like they’ve bit off a bit more than could chew operationally. The food, after all that wait, was just ok. Nothing life changing and a bit on the light side - went for brunch. The fries were really good, those came out as apps which sustained us for the super long wait we didn’t know we had ahead of us.

Showed, up early and our reserved Hightop table was right next to the front door, but the staff found us a regular table in the main dinning room.

We ordered from the weekend VD menu. Food was great, we were never rushed, but the cleared plates when we’re clearly done. Never had to refill my own wine glass and water glasses were never empty.

I’ve been here for brunch before and thought we would try it for dinner. It was okay. Nothing spectacular and definitely not worth the money. I’ve been to other places where my husband and I have spent $100+ which was worth it compared to this place. The place is awesome for brunch or happy hour at the bar with snacks. Just don’t recommend dinner. I would rather go to Rue Saint Marc, Taverna, Bistro AIX or Orsay for dinner options.

We come here often, as it is one of our favorite spots in all of Jacksonville, specifically San Marco. Town Hall featured a menu exclusive to Valentine’s Day that offered 4 courses all well portioned and cooked to perfection. Even though we’ve tried so many items on their everyday menu we were so impressed by what Town Hall created for Valentine’s Day.
Started with oysters, then ravioli with house made ricotta, New York strip steak and roasted duck breast, and we finished with pound cake topped with whipped mascarpone/flourless chocolate espresso cake with raspberry coulis.
The ambience is great, the service is top notch and I would recommend for an impromptu night out or a special occassion.

It has the potential to be really solid (great atmosphere, pleasant server, tasty food), but we had a cold entree, a lukewarm replacement, waiter (though genial, as mentioned) never revisited to check on our drinks, never offered us dessert ... we're going to chalk it up as a bad day.

We ate at Town Hall a number of months ago and enjoyed the experience. Recently two of the restaurants we have visited most often have increased their prices dramatically. So far Town Hall maintains reasonable prices for outstanding food and service. Parker provided wonderful service that was efficient, friendly and helpful. I intend to come here more frequently!

Simply wonderful food atmosphere and very knowledgeable and friendly service. Every plate a perfect balance of flavors and unique combinations of ingredients that harmonized without any of one taking over the other. Was in town for just two days. Took clients there for dinner and loved it so much we all went back for lunch the next day.

Celebrating my birthday at Town Hall was a delight! It was mine and my friend’s first time there too. The ambiance is exquisite. Our meal was flavorful and “simple without being simplistic”, just lovely food. Ordered moscow mules that were made perfectly. Christina assisted us through our meal and she was attentive, knowledgeable and caring. Will definitely recommend this spot to friends and be back as soon as I’m able. Thank you Town Hall!

From our greeting at the front door to our departure after a wonderful dining experience, Tow Hall did not disappoint. The food was great, especially the salami and cheese tray with candied nut medley, jam, honey, house made lavash crackers and stone ground mustard. Reminded us of dining in Italy. The entire experience was lovely. Will return for another great dining experience.

We had high hopes because of all the great reviews but the wait time for our food was terrible. The server was great but we ordered our meat and cheese plate at 7:15pm and did not receive it until 7:45pm. We already placed our food order by then and that did not come out until 8:20pm. The food was good but waiting over an hour for it put us both off and we left irritated.

They are doing a new lunch menu on Friday and Saturday and they were out of almost every item on the menu. Mind you, we had a reservation for right when they opened.

Such a different place and experience. The food is so fresh! The atmosphere was modern and very relaxed. The meat and cheese boards are a must- have! My steak was perfectly cooked, and my wife’s scallops were some of the best prepared she ever had. All in all, this place is top notch. Strongly suggest making a reservation though. Very limited seating.
