Very good food, desserts and wine!
Saint Jacques has always been a good choice for us for a special occasion. The service is excellent and friendly and the food is always delicous.
Our dinner was delicious. The staff was attentive. We had a lovely evening.
1st time doing brunch at saint-jacques. It was marvelous. highly recommend. It is a limited menu so look at it before you go
The staff were very attentive and the food was delicious. This is definitely a “special occasion” kind of place that does its very best to make you feel special.
excellent French dinner; I had coquille st jacques and duck; my wife had the duck salad
My wife and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and had a delicious meal and overall great experience. Would highly recommend to a friend.
At first glance you wouldn’t think you were entering a place with a romantic atmosphere and delectable food due to the location in a shopping mall, but don’t be fooled! This place is amazing! The food is unbelievable and the service is incredible. Wonderful anniversary dinner for us :)
Upon arrival I was a little taken back as my thought upon making the reservation was solely created in my mind as a seclude romantic venue and not in a shopping center however, The service was good and the food was incredible! We will definitely return.
Outstanding food and service as usual. I could tell they were really being careful to protect their patrons from COVID-19.
Wonderful food. Staff did a great job, even with the mask requirement. Tables well-spaced. Great place for a quiet birthday celebration. One of our favorite restaurants. So glad they are open for business!!
Authentic French cuisine done well. Look forward to our next dinner.
Food was awesome, staff all wore masks and gloves. Love this place.
Dining at St. Jacques is always an exceptional culinary experience! The amazing flavors, excellent service, and lovely atmosphere come together to create a memorable evening every time!
Great restaurant for sure. The prices unfortunately make it a little less of a regular venue, but you definitely get everything you would want and then some. Currently I rate it the best restaurant in the area, and if not certainly top 5.
It is a great restaurant. The food was great and the service very attentive. We really enjoyed it
Our waiter mispronounced French food on the menu, was inattentive and showed poor manners. For example, both my husband and I ordered aperitifs. Our waiter asked my husband if he wanted a refill, but failed to ask me, when my glass was also empty. He presented the desert menu to my husband rather than me, cleared my husband’s plate before mine, apparently not aware of proper protocol to attend to the lady first. To summarize, our waiter acted as if I did not exist. Disappointed in the service.
As always, everything was perfect. The food, the service, the atmosphere
Amazing food!!! Best restaurant in Raleigh. This is a hidden gem
Pretend to be French
Should be closed completely
Folks should be doing something else
Very disappointing evening. The food was still good, but not worth the money. Service was noticeably poor, while outstanding service has long been a hallmark of St. Jacques '.
We had ordered a special dessert, as has been our habit. Clearly the new chef had no idea what he was supposed to do, yet the order was taken and I was not called about it ahead of time.
We will most likely not return.
Server was perfectly attentive & professional.
Food was divine!
French food is not my usual go to but Saint Jacques is definitely the place to go for a special evening, whatever it may be. The french wine and seafood dishes we ordered were excellent. My friend ordered the pitterfoiles which she said were devine. Our server was fabulously informative, friendly, and attentive. A perfect evening!
Late lunch with my niece. The great food added wonderfully to the flow and spontaneity of our conversation. Thanks. Katharine
Dessert was awful. Server was going to take it off of the price but I said no. Should've reconsidered.
It was a wonderful experience. Service, food and presentation was superb
Service at Saint Jacques is excellent. Food is delicious.
Excellent service, almost all the food was excellent except for the beer tenderloin. My husband asked for it medium rare and it definitely came out well done. We opted to not send it back as to not ruin the evening plus the overall taste was excellent. Just expected better for a steak that costs that much.
I’ve eaten here before..... best French Restaraunt in area ..... was here for Valentines Day.... prefixed menu.... I knew it wasn’t going to be the quality of the normal menu, but did expect it to still exceed other restaurants. I was very disappointed. Clearly focused on profiting on a special occasions by sacrificing the quality of their product. I’m sure the chef knows since they taste what goes out of their kitchen.
We've dined here for over 10 years and have never been disappointed.
Sweetbreads were overcooked. Potato au gratin with lamb was watery and had to be sent back.
Cocktails, appetizers, desserts & presentation were outstanding. Entree which was a puff pastry with seafood tasted like the chef made a mistake with the black pepper. I questioned the taste but the server did not offer to check on the sauce. Of course, this was the priciest portion of the meal. Expect to pay about $100 + each for the meal.
Celebrated my daughter’s birthday there and we had a wonderful time. We lived in France for many years and my daughter was born in Paris so a French themed birthday felt appropriate.
The atmosphere was comfortable, noise level was good so we could hear ourselves talk. Not a big place but the tables were spaced well so we didn’t feel like we were on top of anyone.
Food was delicious, service was friendly and attentive. We all agreed that it was an enjoyable experience
We celebrated my husbands birthday here and it was fantastic. Service was prompt and everything was delicious. We will definitely be back and will be recommending to friends.
We have LOVED Saint Jacques in the past, but I had a bad dining experience over lunch last week. What I was hoping for as an indulgent treat turned into a virtual nightmare. Ambiance: There were three VERY chatty and loud women in the restaurant, to the point where I could hardly hear myself think. I discreetly asked about their meal status (wrapping up, etc.), and the lovely waitress shared that they had finished - not so. I had to endure their political and gossipy conversation for an hour - could not wait to leave. Food: Again, we typically love this restaurant, but my seafood soup was gritty and the entree very rich. My posting is not so much as a warning about their food, but a heads-up to check out how loud the restaurant might be during your dining experience.
Lovely lunch and Birthday celebration! Quiet restaurant with delicious array of baked bread, nice wine choices, delicious mussels and on the Birthday girl’s dessert plate- chef had written joyeaux Anniversaire in chocolate- a nice touch!
My husband and I celebrated his birthday there and very much enjoyed every aspect of the experience. Highly recommend the lamb and scallops.
We enjoyed our dinner very much. We read about the restaurant in Walter magazine. It was refreshing to find an authentic French restaurant in a strip mall.
