guests i booked for 3/13 came back the next day and thanked me for recommending this spot for their evening dining. I had a lovely experience and just shared with them the ambiance as well as the excellent food.

EXCELLENT HOME COOKING STYLE
I very much enjoyed dining at Café Genevieve in Jackson, WY. The restaurant itself is quite unpretentious, but the food and service are really very high quality. In fact, my impression of both food and service was this: I felt that I was a guest at a friend's house, but the friend was an excellent chef who made sure that I enjoyed what was served, and that I was well cared for during the meal.

Loved our dinner...trout was delicious. Outdoor seating was comfortable & offered a view of Jackson Hole. Strawberry rhubarb pie was the best we have ever had!

Good start to the day
We went to the Cafe for brunch on our first morning in Jackson! It is a very cozy space but with plenty of tables to seat the full house there. The servers were all very friendly and the menu was varied. My husband and I both had the smoked salmon eggs Benedict. Very tasty! The whole meal was most enjoyable and set us up nicely for a great day exploring Jackson. It is right in the centre of the town so super convenient! Loved it so much we went back the next day again! A great start to Jackson! If it had been a bit warmer we would have loved to sit out on the terrace which looks so inviting.

Dinner and lunch
Had a great dinner- supper crispy fried chicken and trout when we arrived in Jackson. The a week later on our return trip home, we were looking for a place to have lunch outside to enjoy a beautiful day, so back we came. Burger was great and the grilled chicken sandwich was good.beaut idyl patio.

The food was good. Some different choices that can be classified as southern comfort. We liked it. A little pricey for what you get, but not too far out there.

We celebrated my daughter's 17th birthday at Cafe Genevieve and had an outstanding meal. Besides the food being imaginative, delicious and impressive, the service we received was exceptional. The servers were friendly, attentive, considerate, informative and really went out of their way to make sure our daughter and her family were treated like royalty. If we asked about a dish, they would bring us some to taste. They provided copious amounts of bread and made sure our water glassed remained full despite the heat of the evening. They also treated her to a very flavorful, decadent dessert with a candle. I highly recommend Cafe Genevieve to anyone visiting Jackson Hole, because the locals already know how great it is! PS Try the pig candy!

Service was great. tuna tartar was a bit dry. Trout was excellent!

We ate here 3 times during the time that we were in Jackson last week. I appreciated that there was a variety of items to choose from. My husband could order the fried chicken and mac and cheese (which he loved) and I could order the lighter pappardelle with tomatoes and arugula (which I also loved). Most of the servers and others who work there are friendly and helpful (maybe the one unfriendly server was just having a bad day.) We would definitely go back the next time we are in jackson.

Don't go home without "Pig Candy"
We ate dinner at Cafe Genevieve and were seated outside. It was a beautiful night and the food was terrific. When he saw the menu item called "Pig Candy," my 14-year-old bacon lover had to try it. When the waitress brought it to our table, the dish was a mason jar filled with thickly sliced, crunchy sticks of bacon that had been broiled in brown sugar and some other secret spices. It was what my dad used to call "a taste thrill." And after demolishing the entire order, we were comforted in the fact that we could buy a box of "Pig Candy" that we took home on the plane. My entire family wants to return to Jackson and we will definitely make reservations at Café Genevieve again!

Great fried chicken!
The food was fantastic, including the chorizo and candy bacon appetizers. My daughter and I both had the fried chicken and agreed it was awesome -- a slightly sweet batter. The service was great, as our waiter repeatedly checked on us. An overall great experience.

WOW! Eat Here.
Carolina was the most amazing part of this breakfast! She was a little bossy but I loved every second of it! Ask for her by name or you'll regret it. Also there is a cross eyed cook in the kitchen named Eric who is just delightful!

Great food and service
Great food - breakfast is served till well past noon.
Service was impeccable. Price reasonable, given the fact it is near the center of Jackson.
Definitely a keeper!

Just Off Beaten Path
During our week stay in Jackson, this was the only restaurant that we ate at that was in the central tourist district, but slightly off the beaten path. The food was very good and in good proportions and the drinks were very good, too. In general, Jackson restaurants are pricey, so this place is on the "typical range" and we found the dinner a good value for the area.

Deck friendly for Dogs
Not only is a person's best friend allowed to join them on the deck of Genevieve's, leashes are provided! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Getting together a big group of all ages and all tastes is never easy, and Café Genevieve worked so well for ours! Everyone, from little kids to grown-ups, found what they wanted: vegetarians, carnivores, gluten-free, no worries, salady and light, gooey and carby and saucy, equally available, breakfast-for-lunch, but of course! Everything was delicious, and everyone was happy. Friendly, zippy staff. All you could ask for!

Fun place with good food
Long day, very tired and wanted a place to sit outside, have a nice glass of wine, and some good food. We sat outside and the house Chard was excellent. We opted for the tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwich....delicious, and lots of it. It met all of our needs. We would return!

Have our usual favorites in
Have our usual favorites in Jackson but decided to try a new place and chose Café Genevieve. We were 3 adults, a child, and an infant. The service was friendly but slow (and not a jam-packed night). 2 of the 3 dishes were excellent - the jambalaya was great and the duck confit was exactly the way my wife likes it and hasn't been able to find in other restaurants in town. The trout was only OK. We will most likely be back again, especially for the duck.

Really, really great atmosphere for summer outdoor dining. Good service, and well-rounded menu. The porch was a little tight for comfortable dining.

Dog Friendly Deck
How wonderful it is to be able to experience fine dining with my best friend--and not leave him in the car. Ice water for me and my dog, creative and delicious food, friendly and supportive staff. Genevieve's has it all.

Already put a recommendation on trip advisor. Every aspect of our dinner experience on 8/29/13 was outstanding!

Brunch w/ Friend
A great find. Nice to sit and catch up w/ friend. She lives in Jackson, but hadn't tried this restaurant yet. Was recommend by others and we were delighted that they were right! The servers were outstanding! We had the special Smoked Salmon Benedict - excellent choice!
Looking forward to our next visit - excited to try other menu items.

We started with Pig Candy: sweet, salty, and perfectly spicy. For entrees we had Crispy Skin Striped Bass and Seafood Jambalaya, both of which were perfectly cooked and perfectly seasoned. The chef clearly knows how to balance flavors, using just what it takes to bring out the best flavor. Dessert was a Mascarpone Lime Cheesecake that was creamy and, once again perfectly balanced: not too sweet, not too tart.

We had the herb-encrusted
We had the herb-encrusted trout & it was very good - served with a tomato-based sauce, spinach & red potatoes. The herbs went well with the sauce & the spinach was very good as well.

My family of six had a good meal and nice time at Cafe Genevieve. We had children with us (ages 7 and 9) and they were accommodated well, but the table for six was right by the bar and kitchen which may not be appreciated by some diners. The food was very good and nicely presented. We loved the salad choices and the complimentary "pig candy" which was a special treat. The mac and cheese was yummy. The steak was also very delicious. Our waiter was personable but not overbearing at all. We were happy with our meals and enjoyed the casual, fun atmosphere.
Great location in JH in a cute little cabin setting.

Delicious food, quaint restaurant.
It was hard to get reservations, so we knew it was probably good. The restaurant is in a small house and has a very homey feel. It was a bit warm, though. Our waitress was very good and knowledgeable about the wine and the menu. My husband's fried chicken was fabulous, that was accompanied with the best macaroni and cheese I've ever tasted. I had the sea bass and it was cooked perfectly. It was a great overall experience.

Cute place, surprisingly tasty food
Although a little kitschy in the decor department and service is just OK, the food here is outstanding and well priced. Highly recommend for a quick brunch or lunch.

Warm and Friendly
Genevieve's was welcoming and very charming. Ate dinner on Friday evening with a party of 4 and then had brunch the next morning with 6 of us. Both times service was excellent and food was delicious. Can't think of a thing I would have changed.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We came here for breakfast and the food was so great, we came the next night for dinner. We had the best fried chicken we have probably EVER eaten anywhere. Their coating was exceptional and the mashed potato accompaniment was to die for. Chicken, a full half, was tender and juicy. Service was perfect.
By the way, their breakfasts are terrific also. I had one of their New Orleans-style concoctions with chilies and it was tops. My wife had ham and eggs and loved it. Food wise, the best place in Jackson, hands down
