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
