Amazing service beautiful area and great food
Excellent food and service
Fun place to meet a friend for lunch
Warm, welcoming bistro with just the right amount of service. Delicious prix fixe dinner paired with yummy wine. Couldn't have been a better experience on a frigid winter evening.
I love the ambiance located in the heart of the Old Port, tall windows with eclectic decor. I can always count on a good meal with great service.
The bistro was charming, the food wonderful, and the service excellent. I will be back!
I rarely leave reviews but felt the need to for this restaurant. This was one of the best meals I have ever had. I ate there the night before and the only thing on my mind all day was the butternut squash risotto.
As always, amazing food, great service! Continues as one of our favorites in Portland!
Very good except that the pepper steak which I had ordered to be cookefrdoum rare was actually rare and though tasty enough, was hard to chew. Wine tasting was excellent and reasonably priced
Awesome! Bourginon was out of this world!
Always consistently very good. Food/Service and festive
Lovely time at Petite Jacqueline at the weekend. We had been once before to its old location and had a great meal but the new (er) restaurant is bigger and has a good buzz. It was busy the whole evening and we had a little wait for our table - I was glad I had made a reservation well in advance of our visit. I had a cocktail and the prix fixe and my husband the boeuf bourguignon. The food and drinks were very good. I would definitely go back on another trip to Portland.
Great menu, delicious food, highly recommend!
It was our first time at Petite Jacqueline, we had heard so much about it and to be honest were a little disappointed. I'd like to give it a second try so I'll be back, maybe try some of their more traditional French dishes this time. The selection we made was good but not particularly impressive, and rather similar to what seem to be in vogue in many Portland restaurants, i.e. some creative dishes that look good in the plate but don't do much for the palate.
Ordered the chicken and it was undercooked. Other than that it is a great place for a date
My husband and I love this restaurant - everything about it is just wonderful!
All was great!
Excellent experience, great food and people working at the establishment.
We will let our friends know of this wonderful spot.
Wonderful brunch with amazing food!
Very good. The cracker on my soup was over done. All I could taste was burned cracker. I simply plucked it out, and enjoyed my soup.
Food was good but brunch menu was small. A little over priced.
We had a great time. Great service and food, well worth it.
Excellent food, great atmosphere and service
Cute little place. Both had onion soup. NOT an onion to be found. Salty. Salty salty . Little cheese. Yuck. Had Beef Bourguion salty thick sauce. Four thin pieces of meat Were tender.
Too many places to try. Wouldn't return.
One of the best restaurant experiences my wife and I have had in years. From our table, to the food, the atmosphere, to the wine, I couldn't of scripted it better. Can't wait to go again.
Bad weekend lunch...terrible service. Not only was the service horribly inattentive but the usually good food was plated like it came out of a cafeteria. Quiche was a dry thin slice that didn’t appear to be freshly cut (looked warmed over) and was plopped in a large plate with a few leaves of green. Plate was too big and presentation was unappealing. Dinner is usually good but something goes awry in the daytime.
The food was great! I had the mussels and it was one of the best presentations I've experienced. My husband had the salmon and raved.
I always feel relaxed within minutes of arriving at Petit Jacqueline. The ambiance is perfect - soft French music, seating comfortable and uncrowded and lovely decor. Unfortunately, this time the food was not outstanding - I had the deviled eggs and smoke salmon crepe and neither was dazzling. I expect more from PJ! The wine was fabulous - great bottle of Sancerre!
Excellent food at a bistro setting in downtown Portland. Floor-to-ceiling windows make for great people-watching, assuming you can tear yourself away from the food! We came for brunch and then came back late in the day to warm up on an unseasonably cold fall day. The fondue and Irish Coffee were just the thing. We are big fans of PJ's sister restaurant, 555; glad we had a chance to check this one out and confirm it is similarly outstanding.
I took my parents here for their wedding anniversary. We had a lovely meal. My only qualms were that the restaurant was a bit noisy, and my dad is hard of hearing. The menu was not extensive, but everything was delicious. The portions were odd--reasonable for some dishes, and huge for others. The appetizers we had were delicious. The desserts were fine, but not amazing.
All in all everything was good and pleasant. The four thin sloces of french bread with our appetisers was pitiful and surprising. I do understand that it can be waistful to bring generous amounts of bread in todays world but one could ask if patrons want bread or not. Anyhow we were all sadly surprised.
Great ambiance. Feels very French. Authentic "french" attention to details.
Perfect little gem of an authentic French bistro with a wonderful menu of classic french items as well as farm to table, delicious plates.
Hustle and bustling place. The menu was full of delicious choices. I have to be gluten free and was very happy. I had the duck, which was fabulous. All the wines are French origin. Will visit again, the next time we are in Portland.
I was really unimpressed. In particular, the mussels were awful—small, overcooked, rubbery and drenched in a heavy sauce.
Very pricey place for not very good food.
We had scallops which were well and for dessert Creme Brûlée done in a shallow dish with wonderful flavor
Good simple food and good service. Really liked the vibe of the place
Food was great, friendly server....no complaints! Would definitely recommend.
This place is a gem! The food and service were absolutely wonderful. I've had onion soup all over France and this may have been the best I have ever had.
