    Our server was very friendly and attentive. He told us about the 1/2 price Wednesday wine special and made good recommendations. Our chocolate souffle was out of this world fabulous and I would come back just for that.

    St James French Diner is a gem. We never really thought of eating a hamburger at a French restaurant, but it was so good! Best burger my husband has ever eaten. I ordered the Steak Frites and wow! It was a beautiful perfectly cooked filet! Not the small flat steak you get in bistros in France. Bravo!!

    We love this place. This was our second visit and it didn’t disappoint. The food, drinks, and atmosphere are excellent. I just wish we lived closer, as St James would be our go to restaurant for sure. We will be back.

    A charming seemingly authentic French bistro. The salad Nicoise was fresh and delicious.

    Nice place and decent food. Service could be better and special Sunday dinner for two was enough for one but not for two people.

    Advertisement for Happy Hours was misleading. Food was inedible due to the amount of salt. Not what was expected from the menu and photos.
