Jacques Brasserie Ratings and Reviews
People seemed happy. We were seated right away, the server was attentive and very good, and the the menu offered plenty of choices at a variety of prices. We had the trout and the branzino, and both were well handled and presented. We left before dessert because it was snowing and we had a long drive home, but we'll snag the chocolate souffle next time.
I have been to this restaurant many times through the years and I was never disappointed. Great food, good service and ambiance. I love the moules marinieres with a glass of cincerre and a creme brûlée for desert. There is live music Thursday - Saturday at night. Great outdoor seating during summer time.
I have gone many times to Jacques brasserie, for brunch and dinner. I love their food.
Last Sunday it was a disaster. There were not many people when we arrived. The waiter took our order, and we waited, and waited, and waited... It took almost one and 1/2 hour to get our food. The waiter apologized, I am sure it was not his fault. There were probably short in the kitchen. I was embarrassed as I was the one suggesting the restaurant. I will think twice before going back !
We were greeted enthusiastically at the door. Small place so don't go if that bothers you. The salad was excellent and both of our seafood meals were outstanding. The only complaint was an inattentive waitress. She didn't seem to want to wait on us and did not check with us during our meal and did not offer desserts to us.
The food and ambiance were fine. We especially liked the apple/arugala salad and the bouilliabase (sp?). But the service was very lax. We had to keep hailing the waiter and busboy for everything from taking our order to bringing bread to bringing the check. It became annoying.
Four friends gathered for Christmas lunch at Jacques Brasserie and we all left satisfied, well-fed and considering a return. We ordered from the special holiday menu and the standard menu and all the food was well prepared and nicely presented.
The staff, from the hostess to our server enhanced the holiday spirit and were efficient and friendly.
Very disappointing culinary experience this evening. Green salads were fine. However, the kitchen was very slow in sending the main courses and we had to wait over 30 minutes for one chicken and two orders of moules. One dish came out with cold over cooked moules. We sent it back. The maitre D didn't even come to apologize. We skipped desserts. Overall, poor management, not worth coming back.
Ordered the hangar steak, which was the best I have ever had. Perfectly rare/medium rare served with a mustard-based sauce on the side. French fries accompanied the meal and were delicious dipped in the sauce.
Fantastic. Only improvement would have been to serve it on a warmed plate. It cooled down pretty quickly.
