I decided on the Shrimp and grits for my entree (pictured above). Presentation was very nice. The shrimp was prepared in a delicious brown sauce, with grits and toasted french bread. The shrimp were huge, but a bit overcooked and lacked seasoning. The sauce was very good, I think it was a vinegar base sauce. But it was superb. The grits were good as well. The bread was a little too toasted for my liking, but it was awesome to have to sock up the gravy yum, yum. Overall, my opinion of the shrimp and grits was it was good, but not the best I have had. With all the hype about the restaurant, I was a little disappointed because it was amazing like some people said. I am not saying that I will never go back, but this experience was not that great.
One thing that I thought was cool, was that the kosher salt is served in a silver bowl with a spoon. Cool idea.
Overall I will rate Jolie's Bistro as just ok. Maybe the dinner and brunch menu, food and service is better. So I will try this place again, but my first impression of this place was not that great.
I definitely believe they need some help in the service department. Jolie's may have had a bad day so I won't hold it completely against them.
