Food is average, but the prices are very high. My husbands $22 bolognese had barley any flavor. I had the veal piccata was ok, but not wow for the $30+ price tab. For the prices you except some fancy above average food. My friend ordered...More

I agree with other reviews, at first blush you will doubt yourself, the location is indeed a small older strip mall. Your opinion immediately changes once you open the door. Unique decor, fantastic personal attention and amazing flavors in this hidden treasure. Very intimate setting...More

Presentation is the justification for menu price. Sorry $40 for sea bass with green beans and crinkle cut carrots. Really!! There was nothing wrong with the food, just can see the value. Too many other options at this price range for me to come back.

Fortunate as a solo dîner to find a place on a Saturday night at the chef's table, aka the bar, which seats only six. Great specials and wines by the glass. Service, as always, impeccable. A real treat.

We have been living in JAX for 4 years, tried many restaurants - foodies we are! We frequent fine dinning places and pride ourselves as the ones know good restaurants. However, for some reason we never knew Dwight's until recently from a new friend. My...More

Small and intimate setting. Our server was informative and attentive. The food was delicious. We were able to customize our orders without any fuss. Will go back. It is a bit pricey, so it's not a place I can afford very often.

So sorry, didn't see you question. That is odd. Maybe they think people call a day in advance. Maybe on-line

Dwight's Mediterranean Style Bistro is Jacksonville's only Chaine des Rotisseurs member restaurant. This little bistro's strip-mall location gives no hint to the eclectic cuisine just inside its doors. The cozy dining room is adorned with charming accents, mosaic wall tiles, fresh flowers and a 100,000 cork collection. Sit at the bar and watch chef-owner Dwight Delude whip up his rustic fare or sit in one of three individually decorated rooms.. The menu changes daily according to Dwight's whims. Golden pan-fried crab cakes transport you beyond the Chesapeake Bay at first bite. Seafood including Sea Bass or New Bedford Sea Scallops are often an option, but the filet mignon with blue-cheese butter and balsamic reduction is a mainstay. Homemade ravioli come filled with Marcona Almonds, Truffled mushrooms or melted sweet onion, and are served as a side dish for the entrees. Plates overflow with fresh-grilled corn and seasonal vegatables, only adding to the generous portions. Discover why this little bistro is one of Jacksonville's best kept secrets
