Lovely restaurant. Excellent attentive service. The food was very good.
Prices a little high.
St. Jacques is always wonderful! This time did not disappoint! The escargot is to die for! Make sure to get some bread to sop up the garlic butter!
I took my husband out for his birthday and we had a great experience!
My favorite restaurant in Raleigh, great for special occasions. If you like French food this is as authentic as it gets!
A wonderful trip down memory lane! This is authentic French cuisine. A fabulous experience.
This is our favorite restaurant for special occasions. We started with excellent martinis and appetizers and followed with equally excellent entrees and a shared dessert. Service was friendly and professional.
Unless you want to practice your French this place is just okay. The service is good but food lacked flavor for the price point.
The food and service were amazing. The owner/chef came out to chat with us multiple times, which was a great touch. Definitely, don't let the location fool you, this place is 5-star! We will be going back for special occasions.
Consistently the very finest restaurant in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill Area. Extraordinary food, exceptional food, the finest wines.
A delicious meal. Fresh ingredients, wonderful staff, superb chef. I will definitely go back.
My wife and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and could not have been more pleased. The cuisine was excellent— memorable— and the wait staff were professional and attentive.
We ordered off the vegetarian menu and ordered all 3 courses for the two of us for our anniversary. The food was excellent, portions were small and our waiter was awkward. But they made it special for our anniversary (dessert plate read Happy Anniversary) and overall it was better than We expected.
A bit of Paris in Raleigh, NC. Quiet but attentive service, excellent food in proper portions, attention to detail-even down to the crumb scrapper.
A wonderful evening. Everything from the food to the service to the attention to every detail made this evening extra special!
Absolutely phenomenal from start to finish. The best meal I’ve ever had in my life.
We had a very lovely birthday celebration for my daughter.
Classic French with enough twists to make it interesting. Food was all very flavorful. My snapper was just a little overdone, but I prefer "less done" fish. My wife's fillet was perfect. Vegetable choices and sauces complemented the dishes, were tasty and innovative. Really great desserts - best I've had in awhile. Service was perfect...unobtrusive and things just came and went at the right times. Very inexpensive for what you get.
Another lovely Birthday celebration for my 93 year old Father (born Jacque) at Saint Jacques. Chef is delightful and takes time to speak French with my French parents. Food is always well prepared and well received by my family....a special offer (pre-ordered) of a Croque-en-bouche finishes a lovely meal and celebration!
The food was great and the service was excellent. This was our second dinner there and we will definitely go again. It’s a perfect experience for a special occasion.
Everything was perfect. The service was outstanding, the Authentic French food was the best we’ve had in 20 years. The duck was to die for! The frog legs were done perfectly. I can’t say enough about the staff, what a pleasure they were. They knew when we needed something and stayed back when they saw us conversing. We wanted a quiet romantic dinner and they gave us a meal and an evening we won’t soon forget! I will go back there again for sure!
We were celebrating our 33rd Anniversary and St. Jacques was outstanding. Service was excellent and our wait staff warm, happy and professional. Chef Serge visited us and we had a wonderful discussion of life in Europe and visits to France. Highly recommended.
We loved St. Jacques when M. Lil owned and ran it. Ignoring that missing personal connection, I would say this meal was just as amazing. Rack of lamb was just right and good flavors. Salmon ravioli for the wife was exquisite. Country pate is a bit stronger than before, but still very nice. They added rabbit. The wine list has undergone a transtion - larger and more varied, and no longer all French, although that is still the most prevelant. We will return soom.
The food is constantly exceptional, from appetizers to desserts.
The service is always welcoming and knowledgeable.
I have been to Saint Jaques many times over the last 3 years. The service is outstanding and the food is amazing. Everytime I go it is an incredible dining experience.
Excellent service, really good food. Medium rare lamb was a little too rare, but rest of the dinner was fine.
Best authenitic French Cuisine in Raleigh. Outrageously good French onion soup. Friendly, attentive and professional service. Outstanding chef, Serge. Creative, beautifully presented dishes.
The food was only outdone by the service. Our waiter was superb
Just great all around. Food cooked perfectly and service was outstanding.
Finest chef in the Triangle, without a doubt. Always amazingly creative dishes with authentic French flair. Have never had a sub-par dish at this restaurant.
We ate there last November/December time frame and this restaurant was great grime the service to the food. This time the food was just average. It all appeared to be bland. For a French restaurant, one would expect something really special. For the kind of money we spent. It was average and quite honestly tasteless.
Felt I was back in France! Food and service was outstanding. Expensive but worth every penny, I will be back!
Have dined here on several occasions in the past. Invited friends to go with us. Unfortunately, this was not a good night overall. Martini's served up were warm and food was barely passable. Expect more than passable at these prices. Service was excellent as usual but it will be awhile before returning here. A disappointment especially when inviting friends. The owner was out of town - could this have been the problem?
Went for our anniversary and had a wonderful meal and experience. The food was outstanding and the service was great. The timing of the courses was perfect.
My first visit. Surprisingly, EVERYTHING I tried was amazing. Yes...that is the appropriate superlative - amazing. Presentation of food, portion size, complex flavors and proper temperature were all noted. Likewise, the dessert ess phenomenal. Instantly a favorite of mine and the wait staff was attentive, courteous, informative and pleasant to interact with. Especially the young lady from Halifax, Nova Scotia.
I’ve been to St Jacques many times and always loved it. My last visit was very disappointing. Food was okay- not memorable. We were seated in the overflow room even though I made reservations weeks ago and the main dining room was pretty empty when we got there and left. For close to $300 I expect exceptional. I’m taking it off my list.
Excellent French food in the triangle.
Located in a strip mall.
Food was excellent.
Excellent dining experience from beginning to end. Service and food were outstanding. Three tank of lamb was prepared perfect and the salmon was very good. The profiteroles were there perfect ending to s lovely dinner.
Have lived within 3 miles of this restaurant for over 30 years but have never dined here. Went with my daughter and we had a great experience. Great food, quiet enough to talk, and wonderful service. Will definitely be returning.
I feel like I was put in coach rather than first class which was unexpected for this restaurant. I have to say that the service was the most disappointing in addition to having some food served colder than it should have been. So overall a disappointing visit as compared to prior times. The main room was not full and was seated in the overflow room with an inexperienced server.... sigh.
