My wife and I went there to have lunch. The server took our order. I asked the server to bring us some french bread. He said there would be an extra charge of $.95. I told him that I was okay with the $.95 and to bring the bread. He never once checked on us during our meal. At the... More

Server had an attitude problem. The food was okay, nothing spectacular. The ambiance was fine. There are too many other nice places to eat in Pensacola/Gulf Breeze. Won't be going back here!

O'Briens Bistro is a charming and unique restaurant in an unusual setting; a strip mall near the Pensacola airport. Service was stellar and entrees were surprisingly varied. They offered veal, quail, grouper, scallops, lamb, steak; pretty much something for everyone. The Coquille St. Jacques were served encased in puff pastry and were perfectly cooked. The Grouper Lyonnaise was also perfectly... More

Located in a small strip center, we often forget this restaurant is here. The menu has something for everyone, and the wine list is ok. The food is good, but not great. Service is always professional.

My wife, son, daughter in law and I celebrated my wife's birthday at O'Briens. We started with the crab cake appetizer. The cakes were made Savannah style with a nice crust. They were accented with a jalapeño dill sauce which had dust the right amount of heat. I had the Elk with garlic mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. The elk... More

Hubby & I did date night ..do suggest you call ahead for reservations. Very expansive wine list and oysters Rockefeller are to die for...pass on the crackers and ask for extra basket of bread with oysters! Jordan, our waiter, was attentive and friendly and I recommend this hidden jewel in Pensacola!

On our last night in Pensacola Beach, my husband and I wanted to find a relaxing place for dinner. Every place I researched on TripAdvisor had more than their fair share of valid complaints (including mention of food poisoning, dirty conditions or the place going down hill) but I kept on searching. I wanted our last night to be special.... More

My swim class had lunch today. The restaurant was very noisy. I had chicken piccata . The flavor was good but the chicken was tough. We tried almost every dessert. The bread pudding was delicious as was the cream brûlée .

I went for a birthday. Disappointing is an understatement. We both had a wedge salad. They had no taste. Nothing was mixed just on the plate in slices making it hard to eat. Flavor is missing...

O'Briens is one of the few, if not the only, fine dining restaurants located away from the downtown Pensacola area. They have daily specials and will gladly substitute another vegetable for a carbohydrate. Their service is always superb with a very knowledgeable wait staff. I highly recommend O'Briens if you are looking for a fine restaurant away from downtown.

Thank Thad K
