    This was our 3rd time at Saint Jacques. It’s one of our favorite upscale restaurants. The service is always wonderful. They make you feel special. The food is delicious and well presented. There is a great wine selection and the desserts are amazing. We have loved every experience we’ve had there. It makes a spectacular anniversary date location!

    Awesome place. Took back to my time spent in France a few years back. Highly recommended if you’re into French dining. My wife and I really enjoyed our time here, especially given that it was our 18 year anniversary! We will be back soon.

    Even though the owner was delightful and friendly, we were somewhat disappointed in our meal which was fairly expensive. I have lived in and traveled to France frequently over the years and truly expected French cuisine. Saint Jacques tried hard, but fell short.

    The service and food were excellent and probably worth the rather high price. Location (in a shopping center) detracts from the ambience. Dessert was especially good! Just one small complaint: We would have liked some good baguette in the bread basket, not the soft version that reminded us of the refrigerated kind that you bake at home.

    Service was just a tad off - and I think it was just us. Our water service was not quick, we ended up empty regularly. We only had one bread/appetizer plate while every other table had two and the dessert/coffee timing was off. Still, a great place and we'll be back.

    Three out of the four of us were satisfied with their selection. I thought my duck entree was a bit on the tough and somewhat tasteless side compared to the last time I ordered the same entree there.

    This was a great dining experience. We celebrated our 2 year anniversary there. Definitely recommend it for a high quality eating experience all around. Probably my favorite dining experience in the Raleigh area so far, and I've eaten at Second Empire and other places, so I do have a basis of comparison.

    This was one of my favorite restaurants for years but the past few times, especially last night, haven’t been up to the saint jacques standards. Food wasn’t spaced out, two apps came at the same time. The escargot was dry and lacked flavor. Bread was hard rather than soft, even when warm. Our waitress disappeared for most of the meal and I couldn’t even get a glass of wine with the main course. Wish it was the old Saint Jacques!

    The food was good and well prepared. My guests said the steaks were a bit over-salted, and my boeuf bourguignon sauce was too. It was still delicious and cooked to perfection. We opted for the charcuterie for the table, which was plenty to snack on for the three of us. The wine was excellent, and the pace of the meal was perfect. We all had a good time. The ambiance of being at a fine dining restaurant near the window in a strip mall is a bit odd. Overall it was a good experience.

    Food was wonderful but three course meal ended up taking almost two hours. We waited abt 30 minutes from the time that our entree plates were removed to when the dessert plates were delivered. Just a very long time for a fairly simple meal. Would not return, cost was not equal to value.

    We last ate at Saint Jacques in 2017 when Saint Jacques was in the top 100. Since then the award winning chef left in 2019. My impression of the 2022 experience is that the restaurant is coasting on its previous reputation. The food and service is inconsistent. Some dishes are excellent, but some are not up to the standard you would expect for what is billed as a top French cuisine restaurant. Unfortunately the prices are out of line with the performance.

    The food was not up to our standards. We both had duck breast, with a sauce. The sauce was more like mud than a sauce and tasteless. The escargot was good, but the butter sauce was bitter. The waitress was very good. We would never go back.

    A relative newcomer to Raleigh, having come from an older, larger city I've looked for a fine dining experience and had some concern about another "fancy" restaurant in a strip mall. The exterior is indeed unassuming but the small interior is pleasant, open and suited to the name and menu. It was not very full so the noise level was fine; I can't speak to the volume of a full house. Their bartender serves traditional and original cocktails; I enjoyed the bourbon-forward Midnight Run and delighted to note the use of Luxardo cherries. Our appetizers, Salade Paysanne with fried egg vinaigrette and Escargot, were perfectly prepared. Each revealed layered flavors as we savored mouthfuls. The main courses, NC Catch of the day and Scallops were just as good. The only weakness was the desserts, pleasant enough but not up to the standard of the other courses. Further, the service was outstanding and attentive without being intrusive. No, they don't all speak French but they knew the menu and provided timely service and impeccable silver service without missing a beat.

    Service was good, not quite the Hospitality I've experienced previously here. Apps were good, portioned adequately. Baguette was not crusty and they no longer serve our beloved Lavender bread. . Entrees were good, albeit a tad bit salty. The desserts were fantastic but portioned way to large compared to rest of meal. Huge portion, I would have shared one had I known. Tasted fantastic though. It was still a great experience and I will return.

    Wow - The food was amazing!! They handled my challenging garlic allergy with ease, creating a beautiful dish with perfectly cooked scallops, asparagus, a variety of mushrooms, pearl onions and topped with beautiful beet Microgreens for a pop of color. The others in my party had a variety of dishes, which they greatly enjoyed. Truly a gem of a restaurant!
