Big 10! John the bartender mixed a wonderful drink so I could adhere to my diet-who does that! Jordan packs bread for our son because we don’t eat it-who does that?!? Chris lets my husband try tequila to see if he likes it. We love AJs. Beautiful setting, excellent food, professional staff who know their job and take great pride in doing that job well. Best place in Saint Augustine.

AJs has become our favorite restaurant. We've had both lunch and dinner there; we've taken friends and relatives. We have never had a bad meal; never had less-than-wonderful service. In fact, the wait staff is superb! Counting the days 'til we go back again. -- Mary

It is always a “10” experience at AJs. Food well prepared, fresh and innovative; service over to top perfect-professional but friendly; best value. The restaurant itself is chic-upscale with beautiful views. But what we love most is the obvious pride each person takes in doing a far exceeds job! Guess only thing we’d like is to see a changed menu-not because we have not enjoyed current menu, but we’d like to try some new items. But hear that is coming!

Food tasted great. Service was a little spotty, but the manager checked on us about 3 times and was super friendly. Can't wait to see how far it comes.

Portion sizes were small, with lots of potatoes and not much meat. A member of our party ordered a second dinner because she was still hungry after eating the first dinner served.

Ambience was amazing and we had a wonderful time with friends. Drinks at bar before dinner and a friendly bartender. Fireplaces going inside and out. Our table was ready and we were greeted by our server promptly. After we placed our orders (a few of us ordered the special) were told they were out of it. Our steak was over cooked but flavorful. Prices were average and there were a good amount menu options. The staff was great from the minute we walked in. Overall we enjoyed our time and food and will try them again.

Overall our experience was good. But, on my reservation I indicated it was my husband’s birthday, so it would have been nice to have been offered a free dessert or something. We had a group of 10, and we stayed after our checks. It wasn’t crowded at all, and it would have been nice if the server had brought us more water. The food was good, but the portions are pretty small for the price. Overall, nice change from the usual crowded, loud restaurants.
