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.

We have been coming to L’auberge Chez Francois since the late 1970s. More often than not, we have lived at least 3 hours from Great Falls; but we always try to travel down your way at least once a year. As always, our visits have been way above superlative. This was our very first visit to the brasserie and could not have been happier.

Noticing your participation in Tauck river cruises, we look forward to any 2020 dates. We have decided to be there too.

Again, merci bien. An evening exordinaire.

Jacques is always a great experience. It was particularly nice on a Sunday night where it was more quiet than usual. Food, service, and ambiance were as good as always.

Ordered the salmon per the server's recommendation and was not disappointed. It was delicious! Warm fall day, we sat on the patio and the ambience, quite "countryside" is apt. Drinks were delicious and the maple sorbet dessert is the best.

Always great. Lots of kids running around patio today - not bad kids just noise and running around detracted from the peaceful ambience you normally get on the outside patio.

Still a great experience.

We had dinner recently to celebrate a birthday at Jacques' Brasserie in Great Falls. The setting is lovely, especially the intimate brasserie seating and pleasant outdoor area, though the high temps and humidity kept us indoors on this visit. Service was professional and courteous, without being intrusive. L'Auberge and its Brasserie focus on locally sourced ingredients, with this season's sweet tomatoes the offering du jour. I had the tomato soup that was rich, velvety, and filled with flavor without the need for a cream base. My husband added chunks of fresh tomatoes grown on L'Auberge's property to his garden salad. My rainbow trout was served in perfectly prepared filets accompanied by vegetables braised to perfection. My husband's chicken dish was also a hit. Desserts included one of the Brasserie's signature soufflés and a seasonal tarte aux pommes. We dined early, which proved to be advantageous as the noise volume increased as the table filled to the point where we had to join the rest of the throng in shouting across the table to be heard. It was definitely a fine place to celebrate the occasion.

It's our neighborhood restaurant and our favorite. Now there are more options for dining, from very relaxed to more formal. Love the changes outside on the patio and can't get any fresher than the robust garden.

You would have to be a fool to pick the noisy, overpriced, overcrowded and overvalued chain restaurants in Reston Town Center when you have this jewel of a restaurant with an unbeatable location, amazing food, top notch wine list and the most competent and friendly wait staff in the region. And all at the same or better price than most of the Reston Town Center.

The quality of life has gone up another notch or more since Jacques' Brasserie came along a few years ago. We have a consistently excellent Parisian experience at our doorstep. The food is superb -- don't think of missing Papa's Bouillabaisse -- the service professional and welcoming; the dining room warm and cheery; and the grounds lovely. Indeed the whole setting is full of charm.

There was a customer smoking in the parking lot close to our table. That was annoying.

The curcieture appetizer should have been served with toast. It was not. Waiter should have brought bread with the curcieture. He did not.

We have been to Jacques about ten times and it never fails. Food is great. Knowledgeable servers and wonderful drinks/wine. Creative and well prepared French bistro cooking. We will be back many times to come
