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.

Typical alamance county try at fine dining. Nicely put together but badly executed. Over cooked $40 plates made up for with complimentary two bite deserts. Bad management on that end as well. Overall if both of our entrees weren’t over cooked it would have been a half decent meal for the price. But the fact that lamb and tuna are both very temperature sensitive dishes meaning if not prepared right are pretty much ruined was the real issue.

Responded on June 3, 2019

Thank you for your feedback. Our aim is always to exceed guests expectations, obviously we failed on Sat evening.Our lead server misread your satisfaction with the medium lamb (vs med. rare) and unaware of any issue with the Tuna feature.We would have been happy to have recooked,thus the comp on the homemade creme brulee and chestnut pot a creme duos.Being in this industry I'm sure you are aware of the importance of feedback,thus thank you for taking the time to share.

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.
