"Saint Jacques @ The Burke Manor Inn" is the only 4 Diamond AAA rated restaurant in the Triad. Located in the picturesque railway town of Gibsonville we serve 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.

This was, hands-down, the greatest dining experience my family and I have ever had. The food was literally to-die-for, the service was at a level I have never before experienced, and the ambience was superb. This restaurant is a 1.5 hour drive from our home, but it is more than worth the drive. We have dined at fine restaurants all over Europe, in NYC, San Francisco, and many other cities throughout the US, but the Saint Jacques at Burke Manor tops them all. This is now our go-to restaurant for any special occasion; bravo and merci beaucoup!

I would absolutely recommend St. Jacques., great service and very attentive. A very quant restaurant With that said we must have ordered the wrong dish. I ordered the duck and it was very small serving which is typical for a french restaurant but it definitely didn't have that wow factor. My wife ordered the short ribs. While they were tender there was more bone and fat than there was meat. The two deserts we had were small in stature, again true to France, but the creme brulee was awesome!

Our staff always tries to please and correct anything that we may have missed, obviously we did not realize there was an issue. We do serve more French portions sizes as you mentioned, try for filling but not too much.. We pride ourselves in the quality, homemade menu and I'm sorry we missed the mark with your entree items. We will share with the team. Lori

We recently dined at St Jacques with another couple in this lovely French inn. Before we could reach the entrance door it opened for us and we were greeted warmly and led to our table. The menu is an assortment of mostly French dishes. One of us ordered the tomato pie for appetizer and found it very good. But the salads were not remarkable. Our friends were quite pleased with the beef filet. My husband enjoyed the rack of lamb. Unfortunately I was not so pleased with the duck a l'orange. I had asked if they would leave out the duck confit and our server said that it could be done and that they would therefore serve a larger portion of the duck breast. But when the dish arrived it only contained a very small portion of duck breast and the server said that they had added some of the vegetables to make up for the duck confit. I would order another dish next time as the duck breast was very fatty and there wasn't much of it. St. Jacques is a great restaurant to celebrate a special occasion. You have your own table for the evening and the service is outstanding. It is unusual these days to find a restaurant where you can have a quiet conversation. They have a great selection of wines which are actually fairly reasonable in price. We will look forward to going back.

Responded on October 22, 2019

Merci for taking the time to share your experience. So glad you enjoyed our exceptional service & your guests enjoyed their meals, but your duck was not to your liking. Additional duck breast&sides did replace the side of duck confit, I'm sorry this was not adequately communicated. We would have been happy to have cooked another duck for you, it doesn't appear our server was aware of your unhappiness. Please contact us directly on your next visit so we can ensure complete satisfaction. Lori

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.
