We visited the restaurant after picking my wife up from RDU airport. We had read the reviews but were still very impressed with the quality of the service and the presentation of the food. The meal was delicious, the service very professional yet friendly and the overall experience was very delightful. We look forward to a return visit the next time we are in the Raleigh area.

Great place for a special occasion. The atmosphere is very charming. The wait staff is attentive, but not intruding. We have been there numerous times and have never had anything wrong with our dining experience. The food is fabulous, dessert even better!

This was the best, most flavorful French Cuisine we have had! The frog legs were so delicious, we couldn’t stop telling everyone about them. We went to the restaurant for a birthday celebration. It was so easy to make reservations and the restaurant called to confirm the day before and also to review our request for something special for the birthday. The staff was prompt and respectful and the chef and owner visited each table to ensure the meals were perfect. There was nothing that could improve the entire dining experience. We will definitely be going back!

Our dinner at St. Jacquie's last Saturday was outstanding in every respect. Wine was a little pricy but, overall, I thought dinner was a good value and we all look forward to returning.

While visiting Raleigh we celebrated my wife's birthday at Saint Jacques. We are always a little sceptic and nervous when visiting a new restaurant as my wife has celiac and we’re never quite sure that the restaurant truly understands.

Not only did the chef/staff at Saint Jacques understand, but Jeff our waiter went above and beyond to ensure that every course, including the butter for the gluten free dinner rolls was kept separate. This attention to ensuring my wife’s meal would be gluten free allowed her and I to relax and enjoy her birthday and our meal.

This was a memorable experience and we will be back to Saint Jacques when we visit Raleigh again.

Thank you Saint Jacques. Thank you Jeff.

The food was not even close to the price paid. We could have went to Capital Grille for less money. Service was great but if you’re looking for a sophisticated dinner this would be appropriate.

It was perfection! A lovely dining area, small and homelike in atmosphere. Attentive staff but unobtrusive, just the way wait staff should be. The chef came out at the end of the meal to ask how we had liked the food, and we really enjoyed chatting with him. We could do nothing but praise him. Everything we'd tried was perfect. This is THE French restaurant in the Raleigh area. There is no competition. We are counting the days until our next special event so we can return. Unless my husband gets his way and we return for one of their wine tasting suppers...

Dining at Saint Jacques French Restaurant was extraordinary. The ambiance was evident when we first entered the restaurant. The waitress and other staff were responsive, and engaging as people, not just our wait staff. Even so, the service was excellent. The food also was extraordinarily delicious. From the onion soup and mussels to the filet mignon, our enjoyment was evident. My guess would be that there are some wonderful parallels between dining here and dining in a fine Parisian restaurant. Merci !

Once again St. Jacques did not disappoint us for our wedding anniversary meal. We were very pleased with our attentive and humorous server. The recently redecorated restaurant seemed more spacious. We loved the new color scheme. We will absolutely be back as soon as we have another occasion.

It's not often you come across authentic French Cuisine having distinct Vegetarian options. The chef has put a lot of thought into creating good vegetarian menu with vegan variants. Their service is impeccable and they are very accommodating with dietary restrictions. Don't miss out on the desserts. This place is quaint and comfortable. If you are looking for a fine French restaurant for a date-night or a special occasion, this is the place to be.

Location is in strip mall, which adds some noise/traffic and, at times, bright headlights thru the store front if you sit towards the parking lot. Not your romantic type evening environment, but is okay for a nice dinner with others.

Food is good and of high quality. Tables seemed a bit small for 3-4 people to sit at.

I would go again.

The food was superb. There were unusual selections including the frog legs that they made to taste just like lobster. I loved the lamb. My wife had the salmon. Delicious. The waiter was awesome. He really knew how to pamper the customers. Sorbet and creme brulee were spread out between the courses. Oh, and the bread, so tasty and unique! Very interesting and fun evening.

Amazing!! Everything!!
Service was absolutely incredible! The food was marvelous!
We started with the cheese platter delivered by Chef Serge himself. Each cheese was better than the last!
Then we tried Escargot and Mussels for hot appetizer. They were both flavorful and delicious.
I ordered the Fillet de Boeuf. It was perfectly medium rare and all the components on the plate were made for each other, specially the black truffle sauce!
For dessert, you need to try the S’mores version they have! It was incredible!
What a superb dinner! Well done Saint Jacques!
