North Beach Bistro Ratings and Reviews

We have now eaten at North Beach Bistro two Thanksgivings in a row and we look forward to eating there again next year. We look forward to their Thanksgiving buffet all year long and are sad when it's over and we have to wait another year for it. The food is excellent, the selection expansive and the service attentive and we would highly recommend North Beach Bistro to anyone looking for a classy place to dine and entertain friends or family.

We came here last year at Thanksgiving and it was definitely our top choice again this year.
I've said before, if you need a special place to have a great Thanksgiving buffet, this is a can't miss destination.
The service is good and everyone is willing to help you have a great dinner.
Everything and I mean everything they put out is very good.
Always sending out warm turkey, stuffing, gravy and the ham is also great.
Carving station is an added bonus for tender and juicy prime rib.
Dessert table has many choices. I didn't count them all, but I would guess ten choices and everyone in our party of 7 thought they were all great.
Last but not least, the Shrimp are fantastic and a great bonus for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.
Try it next year.
You won't be disappointed.

This place had several good reviews, that's why we picked it, but were very disappointed. That food was not so good. We had ordered the Mayport shrimp soup to start, and it was something but not sure what. A red broth with 3 tiny shrimp in it. Then the entrée, nothing to write home about it. Even the ketchup for our son's fries had a hot maybe tobacco added to it. I think the chef was trying to be a bit too creative. Didn't work. Won't be back. :(

Have always enjoyed the food at NBB with good choices ranging from comfort to creative, some really good sauces, and very good desserts. Maybe it is me, but people seem to be getting noisier in restaurants, not to single out NBB, as it is universal. Our server Stephanie was charming, very efficient, and accommodating to reasonable requests from our group. She is definitely an asset to this restaurant. I appreciated my reservation being honored upon arrival, another plus. Will we in our group return? Absolutely!

Food. BAD. People and staff. Cool. I ordered the French Onion Soup ($7). It was tasteless. Seriously I think a can of Campbells would have been better. I ate here once before about a year ago and it was really good. So 1. Either they have a new chef who is over his/her head. Or 2. Just a bad kitchen night. The owner and staff are all awesome. I hope it was just a bad kitchen night. The place was packed so WTF.

Food was very good but pricey. Also, you can't order drinks at happy hour price and then use your Groupon to pay toward your meal. We should have been given this information when we ordered our drinks. This seems ridiculous when the cost of the meal was twice the value of the Groupon.

I must admit I was enticed by the Open Table 1000 points and the multiple reviews that seemed to suggest that it was pretty good. It was OK but really I wouldn't go back. I ordered the happy hour wine (Sauvignon blanc) but it was pretty bad. I ordered a glass of a non-happy hour wine that was much better. when the bill arrived it was only $1.00 difference! ($6 vs $7). My husband had the burger that was highly recommended by the server as fresh beef, bakery rolls, fresh cuts fries and even homemade mayo. Well it was really just OK, nothing special. We also had the hot crab & artichoke dip that was not very good. Little or no crab I could taste or see and super salty. The people there were nice but I would try another place next time in the area.

Our usual place to meet with friends because it is upscale, quiet, & innovative.
This time they had a lobster, filet special for $19.99 and 3 of us ordered that. Would have been a bargain but the lobster tail was very small and the filet was not top quality. On the other hand what do you expect for that price. I had the ahi tuna tacos which are on the appetizer menu. They were great and sufficient for a main course.
Kaitlynn was our server and very good. Replaced a spilled martini at no additional cost.

Cordial greeting by Katie, Special event..wine tasting/dinner...LaVonda (waitress) took special care of us. Other waiters & waitresses checked up from time to time. Food was excellent as was the choice of wines. Katie escorted 3 of her friends(regulars) to our table(7 chairs). Our table had more laughter than any other. Katie has ESP, apparently. This was the end of Anniversary Week & an excellent end it was!! Thanks, Katie & NBB, for a memorable & super enjoyable evening. I believe we were also the last to leave! Hope we get invited back for their next Wine/Dinner! Poison Ivey & Lorna Doone

I do love this restaurant but I am extremely disappointed that they took my very favorite dish off the menu...BOUILABAISSE !!! They made the best ever and many of my friends agree. I used to come and get several servings to go to serve to guests. Until this goes back on the menu, my visits to this restaurant will not be frequent.

Great dining experience. Our waitress Stephanie was amazing. Super through and knowledgeable. The food was great. The neopolitan cheesecake was delicious! I don't live in the area, but I have highly recommend it to those who do! I will go back the next time I am in town!

We love this restaurant, the only thing that was bad this time was a bunch of dirtbag customers made a reservation for 15 people and showed up with 26. North beach needs to put their foot down when it comes to that sort of thing, we had to sit right next to this pack of hyenas and it sucked.

They called it "Date Night"
and it was memorable! Filet and lobster, cooked perfectly, for each of us, with fresh salad to start and peach bread pudding for dessert. It couldn't have been better. The filet equals or exceeds the steak house's cuts, and the lobster was flavorful and moist. This hidden gem will satisfy you!

I received an email invitation to join North Beach Bistro for their "back to school date night". I wasn't sure exactly what that meant, but the fixed price menu of salad, petite filet & lobster tail, and dessert sounded too good to pass up. My wife and I have enjoyed North Beach for lunch and other special occasions; and this was no exception. Our meals and wine were very good, with the slight exception that the lobster tail was unnecessarily salty. Otherwise, everything was great and service was excellent. So, for a couple of seniors , this was a fun "date night"; and we look forward to going back.

What a hidden gem! We have long know about this gem, but the location was a little
problem distance wise. However the little extra drive was well rewarded. We both had fresh
seafood that was prepared with loving care. Outstanding. The service was also outstanding,
with a very knowledgeable and helpful waitress. We shall return!
