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.
else to sample fine French fare than Portland Maine!!Scallops were perfection. Steak frites and onion soup also very good. This owner did his grandmother proud.
What a wonderful experience. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent.
Great, authentic French bistro - really hits the right notes. Great service, all was just terrific.
We had a delightful and delicious Sunday evening dinner. Service was attentive but not overwhelming; food was exactly as we wanted it; cocktails and wine were good value. Dessert was the perfect ending.
Warm welcome and friendly, knowledgeable And capable service. The food was wonderful. Melt in your mouth steak au poivre, buttery salmon with a tangy spiced sauce, large tender scallops - all special and memorable. Highly recommended.
Lovely anniversary brunch, our server was terrific. Thank you!
Lovely food, atmosphere and staff
Salmon was excellent! Broccolini was very, very salty and rather tough and "uncuttable" with the table knife and fork. Too noisy and we were forced to really raise our voices to be heard at our table, which I think everyone was forced to do all over the restaurant. I'm thinking of trying lunch at some point to see if it's quieter and free of the Saturday night celebratory crowd. As I said, the salmon was really great and that leads me to believe that lunch might be wonderful.
I have been to this restaurant more than a dozen times. Service was horrible. I ordered a bottle of wine ($50). She brought the wrong wine which was a $100 bottle. She tried to open it without showing the label. Food was not prepared as requested. Server never checked to see if things were ok. This server has ruined our interest in returning.
As always, love the atmosphere, the service and the special attention paid to our raclette order.
The food and the atmosphere was just what we were looking for to celebrate our first dinner out as a married couple. I greatly enjoyed the carrot salad and the risotto. My husband loved the French onion soup and the scallops. Fantastic cocktail menu as well. Thanks!
Had dinner with 4 of us. Everyone’s dinner was very good except mine. I ordered “smoked salmon in a crepe. It turned out to be hot. To me when it says “ smoked salmon” it means nice thin cut cold salmon. It should say hot smoked salmon. Big disappointment. Could not eat it. One person sent back Onion soup for more melted cheese on top ,then it was delicious. It is a very good menu. Can not wait until they have sweetbreads.
Have.benn here often and hav always enjoyed it but this latest experience was a disappointment.
Service was very slow and food was just okay.
What a great place. We had the fixed price 3 course special, a great value for really well prepared food.
We had a great evening out! Food was awesome. And, I had called ahead to ask about gluten free options since I have celiac. Very accommodating. Mussels were yummy as was the risotto. (Wish they had GF bread to soak up the garlic butter.) When I called I mentioned it was our anniversary. We were delighted with corner table and complimentary sparkling wine. Very nice touch. Thank you!
