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.

Tres francais. A quite satisfactory cassoulet. Attentive, not obsequious, service.

Bistro dining on the UES - easy and delicious menu choices.
Good wines and relaxed atmosphere.
Favorite for mussels and frites, but even the omelettes are yummy!

The food was authentically French bistro. The frisbee salad, the duck and the salmon were excellent. Very friendly staff. A bit crowded...but it's a bistro!

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.

Thoroughly enjoyed dinner there with my friend - particularly because of the corner table we had. It was a bit noisy but the food was very good, the menu selections great, and overall most enjoyable.

This is our go-to French bistro. We have had terrific meals for lunch, dinner and brunch. The servers are always extra caring, especially to my 12 year old son who loves the steak frites and crispy fries!

The onions in the French onion soup were undercooked which was a disappointment as the broth was wonderful. The fries were great. Service was attention without being over bearing.

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.

We go to Jacques quite often when getting together with friends. The ambiance seems straight out of a Paris bistro. Food is good and the noise level is very reasonable so one can have a nice conversation without shouting.
