A word from Chez Jacqueline
Since its opening 30 years ago, Chez Jacqueline has managed to capture the real and true flavors of the Côte d'Azur. Located on MacDougal Street in the West Village, the charming neighborhood bistro offers simple (direct) sustaining food for which Nice is famed. Whether it's the traditional 'soupe de poissons' served with garlic croutons and rouille or the Daube Nicoise, tender braised beef in a pungent, red wine sauce, Chez Jacqueline's cuisine is as close as one can come to Nice in New York.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I love this place! Their service is impeccable, I had a reservation for 5 people but when I got there we had 3 more people. They accomodated us only in a few minutes. Then we had more people arriving to our table an hour later and they switched our table to a bigger one with no problem. Food and wine were delicious, not pricey!! This is a real French gem in the Village that is not overrated, and the prices are not crazy high as some other French restaurants in the city!"

  • "Went because it was near Minetta Lane theater. Had a reservation but kept us waiting by the door. Tables crammed close together and uncomfortable. Had to keep flagging down the waiter. Food was average -- mussels were tiny and veal was nothing special. Would rather have had pizza Better restaurants in the neighborhood"

  • "This was our second visit to Chez Jacqueline. The first was with a voucher I received as a gift. The waiter, I don't know his name was attentive and actually remembered us from our first visit. The food was excellent and the service matched the food. It's a good stop if you're in the Village."

  • "Haven't been in the Village since the 60's when I lived in NY. It was so touching to go to the Minetta Theater on Minetta Lane, then down MacDougal to the sweet, charming Chez Josephine. Brought tears to my eyes. Food was good and the service utterly charming and bright. Will return on next trip to NY in January. Merci beaucoup, Josephine!"

  • "Came across this gem a few years ago, and return whenever I can, especially during the cooler months. Traditional, French comfort food, with my favorite escargot in the city--always cooked perfectly. The duck is another favorite, asome of the best I've ever had. They have a long table in the middle that would be great for a large group, with two and four tops around the edge that offer cozy, romantic seating for smaller groups and couples."

  • "Chez Jacqueline is a charming restaurant. The ambiance is very warm and quaint. Nice for a romantic dinner for two. The waiter was a little gruff or seemed annoyed for some reason at first, but warmed up and the service was good. The food was very good. I had the onion tartlet appetizer and the black linguini with saffron lobster sauce. The tartlet very good, but the linguini was delicious. My husband had the raddichio and apple salad and the hanger steak, also delicious. Enjoyed the food and the ambiance.We can highly recommend Chez Jacqueline."

  • "We all (4 of us) had a lovely dinner. Two of us had the lamb, one trout amandine and one papparadelle pasta. All of us enjoyed or dinners very much. The lamb was pefectly cooked and tender. The seafood soup appetizer was delicious as was the beet salad with the best goat cheese I've ever tasted! Desserts were reasonably priced and quite good as well. The best part of our dinner was our waiter Anthony! He made the meal special. We will definately return!"

  • "I have been coming to this place for many years, but this last meal was a disappointment. I ordered something different from my usual choices and so did my partner. Out of 6 dishes we ordered we only liked 1 ( cauliflower gratin). The wine was also mediocre. I think this place decided to cater to the lower end of the customers at lower costs. If you are looking for affordability, this is okay. The service was very nice as well and the atmosphere."

  • "Had wanted to go here for ages and finally made it. On a blissfully quiet corner of the Village, it reminds us of wonderful times in Paris. Menu varied and the food is very good if not exceptional. We'll be back soon."

  • "Decent quaint little neighborhood place with good food and average service. Ambiance is quite different, such as what a restaurant might have looked in the 1800's. Owner very accommodating and concerned about his business and goodwill."

  • "We had a delightful experience! We enjoyed all that we ordered, from the chicken with summer squash and tomatoes, to the cauliflower gratin with bechamel, to the flourless chocolate cake with a glass of ruby port. We will definitely come back when we return to New York!"
