Saint Jacques 4 Diamond AAA rated restaurant at the historical Burke Manor Inn & Pavilion, located in the picturesque railway town of Gibsonville serves dinner Wednesday through Saturday, and lunch Thursday through Saturday. Enjoy a glass of wine on the verandah then convene to the intimate dining room where a classic fine dining French meal will be offered. The owners of the Inn, Lil & Lori, previously owned Saint Jacques French Cuisine in Raleigh, which had been voted one of the top 100 restaurants in the US by OpenTable diners under their ownership from 2009-2014. They have brought those same standards they had applied in Raleigh for 10 years to the Inn.

Ever bite our group of 4 ate was spectacular, from appetizers through salads and entrees and dessert and coffee. Pacing was great, finding that balance between too slow and too fast. Beautiful presentation without being too artistic. We were first timers, and it was a perfect meal for each of us. They didn't miss anything.

My wife and I enjoyed our Valentines Dinner at Saint Jacques. The ambiance is outstanding. Our server was very attentive although he was very soft spoken so we had to keep asking him to repeat himself. I was somewhat disappointed with the short rib entree. It had more fat than I had expected. All the food courses were very good. The two outstanding items were the chestnut soup and the apple upside down tart.

We have eaten dinner at Saint Jacques at the Burke Manor Inn three times now, and it has been consistently excellent. The menu items and specials are authentic, carefully prepared and delicious without being pretentious. We have not tried any cocktails there, but we have found the wine selection to be better than most. Our waiter for our most recent visit, Kenny, was very knowledgeable about the preparation of each item about which we had questions or interest, and he was equally conversant about the wines. The dining area consists of two of the front rooms of the manor, as well as the front veranda when the weather permits. The lighting is bright, and the atmosphere is convivial without being noisy. I would characterize it as visiting someone's home rather than being romantic. Prices are a bit higher than most restaurants, but they are a little less than the three high-end steak houses in Greensboro. Considering the five-star quality of the food, I give it four stars for value. We will definitely return and highly recommend it to you if you have not yet tried it.

My wife and I dined with two friends. We ate in what must have been the dining room of a house built over 100 years ago. The food was very good especially the pumpkin and roasted corn soup, lamb chops, butternut squash ravioli and chocolate dream ball. My wife, who has traveled the world and is a "foodie", told me that her ravioli were some of the best that she has ever tasted. The pasta was the proper consistency and was cooked perfectly; my wife said that the ravioli "melted" in her mouth. Our waiter was Kenny and the service was exceptional.

Lori and Lil created a fantastic place: a little piece of France in the heart of North Carolina. Lil takes pride in the food he prepares and he should: I felt I was in France with all it means to most. Breads were tasty and delicate, with a twist of biscuit-like. The lamb was cooked to perfection and the clafouti was, well, just like in Limoges!
My wife and I cannot wait to go back, though it is an hour drive away from home!
