Ask for Chris - he's fantastic. He knew we were new to town and that it was our anniversary. He was there when we needed him and wasn't intrusive. Everything was on point. By far, the best restaurant we have visited in Jax/Ponte Vedra (and we have been out often). Keep it up - we will be back.

Excellent service by our server, Brian...from introducing himself to recommending some yummy dishes! Brian even went out of his way to show us all Orsay had to offer and making our friend so welcome since she was visiting from out of town. She even tried duck for the very first time! Each time we go to Orsay it gets better and better which is rare here in Jax when it's usually a hit or miss. So grateful that Orsay maintains their exceptional service!

The experience was great! I really enjoyed the house wine and roasted oysters. The entrees that we got were very tasty, but a little heavy on the salt in our opinion. The service was excellent and the ambience was very romantic. The one downside in my opinion is they do sit you very close to other tables, but this was not an issue during our experience at all.

I don't often write reviews, but I felt inclined to write about my experience this time. My wife and I had dinner here a little over a year ago, and we've been talking about coming back ever since. We decided to spend our first wedding anniversary here, and had an unbelievable experience. Robert greeted us and wished us a happy anniversary and brought out complimentary champagne. I can't sum up Robert's hospitality in writing, however, suffice it to say that it was some of the best service we've received in Jacksonville. As a local Chef as well, I compliment Restaurant Orsay's Chef on the pairing of flavors, plating, and overall creativity. The food was fantastic. The fresh oysters, appetizers, salads, and entrees were all perfectly prepared, and tasted fantastic. Robert treated us to a complimentary creme brulee and created the best possible environment for our first anniversary throughout the entire meal. The beverages were very well crafted, and of course we treated the kitchen to PBR's afterwards with the "Meaningful Handshake" option on the drink menu. My wife and I will certainly be back very soon, regardless of the occasion.

We had a fabulous dinner, the staff was very attentive. We had reservations & were seated upon arriving. The staff surprised me with a delicious dessert since it was my birthday. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Restaurant ORSAY is with our any doubt, the best, most consistent fine dining restaurant in Jacksonville. Jason Eddy goes out his way to assure that his serving staff is of the highest professional training to provide service which matches the food. Our family enjoyed the exceptional service of Rob this past Saturday evening. There was no detail that was not attended to from beginning to end of evening.
Take your Loved Ones and guests to Restaurant Orsay and enjoy a very special evening!!

Wait staff was very attentive and able to answer all questions regarding the drink and dinner menu. I had the roasted oysters and beef stroganoff. The short ribs in the pasta dish were some of the best I've ever had! Will definitely be going back!

For an excellent meal with a seasoned wait staff. Our waiter, Patrick, is one of the best, most knowledgeable waiters we have ever had, anywhere! Everything from wine to appetizer to main course to our dessert, all was absolutely delicious. I don't think it could have been any better. Thank you Restaurant Orsay. We will be back soon. And, we will ask for Patrick again.

This is our favorite neighborhood restaurant and continues to be after our last visit. We did the Jax Sip & Savor menu - all 3 courses delicious and so full I couldn't eat another bite. Dessert bread pudding is sooooo good,

The variety of dishes on the menu is excellent. There is bound to be something for everyone. The small plates were perfect for appetizers and the salads are large enough to share. The Lyonnaise Salad was very unique. Save room for dessert - great choices and the petit fours are great if you just want a small taste.

Orsay has always been one of our favorite Northeast Florida restaurant and this trip was consistent with our prior excellent experiences. We had another engagement after dinner so we went early -- 5:15. We ordered wine from the Happy Hour list and were pleased with the quality and the pours. We each had the mushroom bisque to start (fabulous) and I ordered 4 oysters on the half shell. For our entrees, I had the Happy Hour sized Bouillabaisse (it was plenty, given my appetizers) and my husband ordered his usual cassoulet. All the food was outstanding as was the service provided by Emily. Great experience again!

The experience was great but the only thing that went wrong was the waiter didn't tell us the soup and salad we order we separate. When he asked my wife and I did we want a soup or salad he made it seem like it came with the entree which it didn't . My salad was $14 and my wife's soup was $12 this added an additional $28 which spoiled the GREAT service the waiter gave us. He did awesome job just was misleading.

I took my wife to Orsay for her birthday. From the moment we walked in until the time we left service there was outstanding!!! Our waiter, Brian, was extremely courteous, knew the menu very well. He even made food suggestions which we ordered. The food was to die for! We will most definitely be back again!!!
