A city-hip restaurant located in Jacksonville's historic San Marco district, Bistro Aix brings an intriguing mix of vibrant sights, sounds, and flavors to Jacksonville. Seasonal Mediterranean and French bistro-inspired menu features wood-fired oven and grilled specialties including pizzas, pastas, risottos, steaks and seafood, complemented by professional, unpretentious service. A Wine Spectator Restaurant Award recipient, Bistro Aix offers over 250 wines by the bottle and 50 by the glass. A wide variety of hand-crafted cocktails and specialty martinis are available from the full bar. The bustling main dining room is highlighted by original 1940s brickwork, a curved marble bar and an open kitchen. A second dining room includes a glowing backlit onyx bar and open-view wine cellar that bring the feel of the big city to the cozy neighborhood of San Marco. Outside, an intimate dining patio is accented with oversized flowerpots and climbing vines
Great menu selections. Seated us prior to our reservations. Accomodated additional guests at our table once we were seated. Mushroom Pizza was Excellent! The best roasted Brussel Sprouts! Seared Tuna was perfect! Great wine selection! Service was excellent!
Dined here this previous Friday night and had an overall horrible experience! Service was lackluster and rushed. The waiter brought the incorrect cocktail to the table. All waiters carried silverware in the their hands instead of using a serving tray or mis en place. Waiters lacked knowledge regarding menu items and the wine list. I was charged $20 to add scallops to a risotto entree (making the final price for risotto $41). Horribly overpriced with horrible service!!! Save yourself the trouble and go to a real fine dining restaurant.
I fell in love with this cozy dining and bar place....It is a great classy place to eat or have a drink. This atmosphere is awesome and the young crowd love it. If I was only in the Restaurant biz...this is what I would want to create. Actually there is smething for everyone. But for me it is like Heaven. Can you tell I love it?????
I'm a self-admitting food snob. I've dined at some great places.
Bistro Aix can do excellent food and you can have a great time. I eat here a couple of times a month. If going for dinner, try to get seated in the main dining room. I've found service not to be up to the same level in the onxy bar area. If going for lunch solo or with a friend, sit at the bar and get excellent service.
Save room for dessert and try to start with an app. After living in the NYC area for many years, this is one of the few places in Jax that has a real cuisine, commitment to service, and atmosphere. I've complained once or twice and found that they listened.
I eat here at lunch often and you cannot go wrong with either the half-sandwich and soup or quiche and salad.
The onion soup is superb ... be sure to get extra bread to sop up the bit in the bottom.
Good wine selection by the glass and bottle for any event.
This is the best restaurant in Jacksonville. The only place we can go to really escape the city and be transported to sophisticated civilization. The decor, the smells, the sounds and the sights all complement the freshest, most innovative food. If this place was in NYC, Seattle or LA,, the chef would be as famous as a rock star.
Bistro Aix is by far one of the absolute best restaurants in Jacksonville. The food is always fantastic. The cheese pizza is delicious, it is our favorite appetizer. I've loved every dish I've tried there. The portions are good for the price. The service is ALWAYS above and beyond. It is a cozy, well decorated place that is sure to please. Try it out, you won't be disappointed.
Bistro Aix still rocks Jacksonville as the best restaurant in town. They consistently deliver on the food, service and decor (love the new bar). They really just keep getting better and definitely elevate the level of expectation for what dining out should be in this town (and elsewhere)!
Pros. food is awesome, service is great, wine selections are fantastic. Great place for a date or at happy hour. gets chaotic a dinner time so make a reservation thier catering is also great.
cons crowded and pricey
