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.

Beautiful! This is one of my favorite places to be. I love it. We sat outside this time. It was a beautiful day with a beautiful setting/view. We looked at the gardens as we enjoyed our food and drinks. I got my favorite drink - Le Picon Bière (Amer Siedel). My husband got his - Sage Cape Cod. I could eat the cottage cheese and garlic toast all day. I got my Warm Roquefort Tart which is so delicious. It is light while being hearty if that makes sense. I opted for something a little different this time for another course - Chive Crepe Stuffed with Duxelle Wild Mushrooms. It was so good. My husband always gets the Sunday Chicken - Classic Vol au Vent. I don't eat meat but I always take a bite. The sauce is heaven. I wrapped up my meal with what I always get the raspberry souffle. Beautiful and dreamy. I love the hot raspberry sauce. As we were paying I overheard some of my favorite words ever - the soup of the evening is Split Pea. I got a bowl to go. It was my lunch the next day. I cannot tell you how much I love the Split Pea soup. The other soup I love that he makes is the Lentil Soup. I could have those soups all the time.

Always a great meal with Chef Jacques. We like the French-themed atmosphere and the ability to get fresh vegetables grown in the garden at the meal. The garlic bread with cottage cheese, house aperitifs, escargots, mesclun salad, and excellent French wines and desserts are always a highlight. We imagine that we are in a wonderful French bistro across the ocean and just catch up on what is going on in our lives.

It’s as close to a little French bistro as you can get without crossing the pond.

Let’s see... I made reservations two weeks in advance through Open Table. On the day of our 37th anniversary, the restaurant said they didn’t “see” our reservations, wouldn’t look for them, and suggested we “sit at the bar and maybe a table would open up”. Really?
This is way beyond poor service. Never again!
BTW - we found a far less elitist restaurant and had a great dinner at a third the price.

As always the food was marvelous- as well as service. However the noise level was unbearable- the Bistro is too small to have a table of 10 women in the middle of the room. Chez Francois needs to examine their policy of allowing a table of 10- no matter the sex- in such a small space. It was difficult for all of the surrounding tables to enjoy the experience of dining in this beautiful setting.

Wonderful experience. Feels like you’re in France! Great outdoor dining. More of a winter menu, limits choices in hot weather. Food very good but not as good as on past experience. Great wine list. Great setting. It’s a gem.

Decent food -
But the ambiance is very disappearing. Dark and enclosed.
Also, tried to make a reservation for 6 pm, but Open Table only let me book for 5 or 7. The restaurant was absolutely empty at 5 and by 6, only a few tables were taken.

Very disappointed in the experience - food was good, but for the ambiance, I honestly can't recommend it.

Jacques is one of our local favorite places for a great meal with great service. Just casual enough to not worry about what we wear. The bouillabaisse is out of this work with flavor and tender seafood. We also like their fish special of the day.

Service was a bit slow - don't know if they were short-staffed that night, but our waiter was slammed. Servers were not as "on top of things" as they usually are.

Soft shell crabs were superb!

We love Jacques. Service is the best! Manny makes sure everything is ship shape and up to par. He knows what my husband and I drink and eat. Today we had Edwin. He was excellent. We saw Jacques. You will never see an owner/Chef more involved in their restaurant. He cares so much for his customers. He cares about every detail. Just another reason to love this restaurant. I changed up what I usually get. I had the best omelet with pomme frites and hollandaise. I love the raspberry soufflé and get it each time. My husband got the Sunday chicken which is lovely. It has a beautiful cream sauce and puff pastry. Jacques is a relaxing little piece of heaven.
