Restaurants in Alsace traditionally have a formal main dining room as well as a casual dining room known locally as a weinstube or brasserie. At the brasserie, diners may enjoy traditional, hearty Alsatian dishes in a warm and relaxing atmosphere. These friendly establishments are immensely popular with Alsatians and visiting them is always the best part of my trips back to Alsace. I opened Jacques' Brasserie at L'Auberge Chez François to bring the tastes and comforts of the Alsatian brasserie to Great Falls.

    Excellent food. Top notch service. The tomato salad had just arrived which was outstanding. Garlic bread was wonderful as always. Although we ate downstairs at the Brasserie we were able to order entrees from the main restaurant. Jacques personally greeted us. A wonderful eating experience. I wish we could go every day.

    Lovely outdoor setting - idyllic really. My favorite outdoor eating setting locally. The food is very tasty and high quality - but also frequently a bit more rich than you might wish. Service is solid and formal, but improvements could be made given these prices. Things like failure to keep us proactively filled on water and iced tea on a hot day or inconsistencies of attention (all over us to order promptly and then not visible when you need something beyond the first moment of food delivery) could be easily remedied.

    It was Friday night, and they were busy. So service was fairly slow, though staff were trying to please. Food was good but nothing spectacular, especially for the price. Outdoor setting was very pleasant, surrounded by old trees and with a view of the vegetable garden.

    The seafood (oysters and crab cake) is as nice as one might find at the best seafood restaurants in this area. Great service, as always, and a pleasant evening outside. From the number of cars in the parking lot that evening, it is obvious that lots of others share my opinion that this is one of the very best places for a great evening out.

    I’ve been to Chez Francois multiple times over the years - both in the Brasserie and upstairs in the main restaurant. What I find time after time is consistency - that being, consistency of outstanding, world class food (and creativity of the menu), superb even charming service, ambiance, and cost. I’ve traveled the world and been blessed to eat in many fine restaurants. Of them all, Chez Francois is my favorite.

    Jacques Brasserie is a place to go when you want to share an enjoyable dining experience with friends or someone special in your life. The food is wonderful, wine selection excellent, service outstanding, and the ambience casual, calm, and warm. On a warm Sunday in May it is like being transported to the Provence where you just want to linger and savor the moment.
