A typical French Brasserie. Been here many times. A neighborhood favorite. Good service, good food. What else should one ask for?
This is the third visit to this restaurant and it never disappoints. Probably our favorite French restaurant on the UES.
This is my new favorite. Each time you arrive you feel you are an old friend. The staff is lovely, and the food is delicious and satisfying. Cocktails are excellent.
Lovely restaurant. Excellent date place
If it were not for the amplified and intrusive audio from an Oscars telecast, this would have been an exceptional. Food was delicious. Service was attentive. What a pleasure!!
Always reliable and delicious. Love it for two or a party. Been going to Jacques for years.
Everything was great, the service was good, the food was fine, as was the atmosphere. The only thing that was slightly annoying was the bad acoustics. Especially when the room was almost full, you could hardly hear your neighbour talk.
A wonderful, authentic UES French bistro... well worth the visit, and we will be back!
Yet another lovely brunch at a place that makes you want to become a regular. The food is great, lovely versions of everything I’ve had so far on the menu. This isn’t cutting-edge cuisine, but that’s the point. This is a remarkable comfortable and low-key dining experience with attention to both the quality of the food (try the superb tuna tartare, for example), the drinks (an impeccable Negroni, for instance), and warm service (after a third visit, we were welcomed like old customers). Looking forward to our next meal.
We went for dinner...The food was delicious, the service outstanding.
Last minute find - food was better than expected. Table by the window was cozy. Staff was very nice. Will come back!
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!
Had a great meal. The waiter got an appetizer order wrong but it worked out ok.
Always a reliable, extremely charming place.
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 !
Always great. Special evening events. Fabulous brunch.
Always a delight
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!
Excellent! Best steak I have had in years! Service was exceptional! Will definitely be back.
Although food was up to it's usual high standards Saturday night, it was very crowded and service was both slow and erratic.
Reliably good and the jazz nights are great fun!
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.
Ordered plat du jour fish soup. Sent it back3 times Too Cold! Lots of apologies but no improvement. Would never go back! Too many excellent French restaurants in NYC. So don’t try this one
Good food and company. Very cozy
New Years dinner was wonderful. Music, delicious food and excellent service made the evening one to remember.
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.
Its always a delight to have dinner here. Attentive service, well crafted menu, comfy and charming.
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.
Excellent food and presentation, wonderful service, relaxed ambiance -- couldn't ask for anything more! Love it and will be back.
The food was terrific and the atmosphere was charming! I will be back!
I am very fortunate to have this neighborhood restaurant . Always wonderful
Great neighborhood spot. I really enjoyed my french soup and Steak frites.we will be back.
Enjoyed a lovely anniversary dinner here. The service and the food was outstanding. Highly recommended.
