This is a neighborhood gem. We only discovered it a few weeks ago. Love the decor, servers are great and food is delicious. Try the apple tart!

Another great meal at Jacques. It was a busy and crowded on Saturday and I was a bit concerned. But once we were seated, everything went perfectly. The food was fantastic (the escargot is a classic and the shrimp with guacamole were super fresh). The service was impeccable...we stayed late and the switch in servers went without a hitch. Thanks for a fabulous evening (and a fantastic table!)

The Valentines menu and special event was lovely. This is the 2nd year I’ve celebrated there. The lobster salad was delicious, and the rack of lamb was generous.

Jacques Brasserie is what all similar establishments should be: slightly formal, yet relaxed; friendly atmosphere; great food and drinks; and, overall pleasant environment. Whether you are looking for a place to have a meeting, go on a date, or just enjoy some french cuisine, Jacques is a good choice.

We were given a table that was easily accessed by our handicapped friend. The staff and particularly the maitre d were extremely helpful. The meal, as always, was delicious, service outstanding. This is one of our favorite restaurants in the area.

Always a great experience. Our out of town friends considered it their second honeymoon. Their first was in the 80's, in Paris.

A cozy UES brasserie that is a neighborhood gem. Good food, plentiful wine and nice but not overbearing service... nice combination.

WE came in for a bite after a movie and the Host/Server was rude and annoyed that we came in. It is usually a good place for us, but the person that greeted us put out such NEGATIVE ENERGY that we considered leaving. However at this point it was 10:20 and not too many other options.
Someone needs a talking to....

It's French to the core. Delicious food. The Maitre de who seated us was a bit standoffish at first, but once we established that we'd been to France, he took our order and kept a close eye on the wine bottle…and everything else. The noise level was just enough to be interesting, and—bonus!—the party of six next to us was all French. Highly recommended.

Every time I dine at Jacques Brasserie I have the most wonderful experience. The food is simply divine! Sometimes I find myself dreaming about something I ate there and wishing I could eat it right away. The ambiance is perfect, a charming French bistro reminding one of Paris, and everyone who works there is friendly and helpful. Truly a NYC gem.

Made this reservation for my friends, the busser was very inappropriate and passed lewd remarks to them which made them feel extremely uncomfortable.
Loved the food, but that guy ruined the experience for them.
