    The service was poor. There were hardly any tables and they all still around didn’t offer cracked Pepper with salad one meal. My scallops were OK at best overall very disappointing.

    Wine we ordered, sold out, they offered a higher priced bottle at the same price as the one we ordered, nice touch. I ordered coquilles St-Jacques, still trying to find the bechamel sauce. The food was OK, bit nothing to write home about. if you know really good french food, do not go there. and yes, i forgot, we ordered onion soup, and they were out of it. Somehow you would think having the broth on hand at all times would be simple. They did remove my coquilles St-Jacques from the bill, thank you

    This has always been a favorite of ours but we unfortunately went right after they just reopened after a complete change of the executive chef, pastry chef and kitchen staff. As a result, there was no cocktail bar, a very limited menu with 2 main things sold out, not the same wonderful bread sampler as in the past, no gelato, and no espresso or cappuccino, yet the prices were the same if not higher. What we did have was good but not the excellent experience we've had in the past. I hope this is a temporary adjustment and the restaurant will be back to full-service with excellent food and selections.

    Been going on our anniversary for many years. Service not as good as in the past. Prices are higher than warranted with just average service. Plus they took escargot off the menu. Probably won't go next year.

    I have been here once before over a year ago and everything was excellent! It is a little pricier so not someplace that I would come often, but was so excited to come for my birthday. It’s someplace I remembered as being a standout from the food to the service. I came in with high expectations since my first visit was outstanding. I had been thinking about the escargot and was so excited to get it, only to find they had removed them off the menu. I think that’s bizarre given it’s a nice French restaurant, but once I got over that I started looking at the menu. It’s a smaller menu so about 6 or 7 entrees. The 2 that I was most interested in were the catch of the day and the risotto with scallops. When the waitress came over to tell us the specials she mentioned that both of these entrees were unavailable. Again disappointed. Really at that point everything I was truly interested in eating were no longer available. We each got a glass of wine, the charcuterie board, the lobster bisque (that was the soup of the day), I ordered the duck, and my boyfriend ordered the pork special. The bisque had great flavor, but a took a bite of the chunk of lobster in there and there was a piece of shell. The duck was delicious! It had great flavor, but it was topped with a tonnnn of whole peppercorns which was just too much. I sat there trying to pick them off the top of the duck before eating it so I wasn’t biting into whole peppercorns in each bite. My boyfriend’s pork special was good, but not impressive. The pork was a bit dry. Overall it was fine, but nothing I’d go racing back for. The service was good, but not amazing like it was in the past. She did mention that they’ve had some chef turnover so maybe that was a factor in it, but overall for $170 for 2 people- I walked away wishing we had gone elsewhere since there are so many fantastic places in the triangle. Hopefully this was just a hiccup and they can get things sorted and back to the quality they had last year.

    This is true French cuisine so prepare yourself for the highest quality made with great attention to detail. I am so happy to have found this restaurant after moving here from a city with three fine French restaurants which I loved. My table ordered several different dishes from soups to dessert and everything was outstanding!

    We were unaware that the restaurant had a new chef. Many of our favorite things on the menu were gone and the food we had was extremely salty & poor quality. Definitely not worth the price tag.

    If you have a special event to celebrate, if you love French cuisine, or even if you just love to eat at a restaurant that has superb service and food, Saint Jacques French Cuisine is the place. Everything was perfect from the moment my husband and I arrived. Our server, Greg, knew exactly which wines to pair with our appetizers and our entrees, and of course with our desserts. The food was presented beautifully and was incredibly flavorful. The only negative comment would be about the extremely limited cocktail list, so we stuck with the wine menu, and it wasn't a problem. Our reservations were rather early in the evening because we had a long drive back home (over an hour), so it was extremely peaceful in the restaurant. Tables were filling up by the time we left, but the noise level was still quiet. The background music was just right. I noticed it, but it didn't hinder conversation. This special meal was a group thank you gift to celebrate a trip we took to NYC to sing at Carnegie Hall, and the cuisine was better than anything I had in NYC! Thank you, Saint Jacques, for a wonderful evening! (And thank you to my Carnegie Hall-Stars for the wonderful gift!)

    We were looking forward to this meal all day as we had celebrated our first anniversary at this same restaurant. The first thing we noticed was that it had appeared to have had some updates so we both commented to each other on this as we entered the dinning room. The Matre D’ was no smiles and all business, so not a great start Table server was a bit better / OK but neither asked if we were celebrating anything. I did note that this was an anniversary dinner in the Open Table App. The signature Onion soup was not hot but flavor was not bad if a bit acidic. The scallop first coarse was rubbery and seemed thrown together. For entrees we had the Lamp Chops and Short Ribs 3 nice sized chops but all cooked to different temps. 1 Black and Blue, 1 Rare and 1 Medium Well / Well. We ordered medium. Short ribs were cold. Seems as thought they were either not made that day and improperly reheated or they sat for a very long time with no warmers. Carrots were tough and a bit woody. Potatoes were both under and over cooked. The Table Server apologized and offered to remake the orders but we decided to leave and find a better place to celebrate our anniversary. Matre D’ avoided us and made no effort to apologize. He quickly turned to some new guests and turned away from us as we left. Paid $50.00 (plus a $10.00 tip) for two onion soups and a rubbery scallop and bottle of still water. Would have been fine if this was a better overall experience but not worth what we paid in this case.

    A few hours before my reservation I received a phone call from the restaurant. When I answered, no one spoke yet the line remained open. Thinking I had a bad connection, I called back. The call went to VM, not wanting to leave a message, I called again and discovered their voicemail box was full. I then messaged them through the open table App explaining that someone had called me. I received a reply a couple minutes later, “Thank u”. I messaged them again asking why they called and if there was a problem…no response. Upon arrival, we were kindly greeted and taken to our table. Once our waiter arrived and introduced himself it was obvious that no one knew it was our anniversary. This despite my including that information I when making the reservation, not once but twice. I checked the Anniversary box in the App and typed “Anniversary!” in the notes. We ordered, our wine, bread then the appetizer arrived. All was good. When our entrees showed up, mine (bœuf bourguignon) was great. My wife’s meal, (the duck) was very disappointing. The breasts were over cooked and dry. The normally delicious skin was not crisp but rather gummy and decidedly chewy. Had the staff merely made mention of our anniversary or offered a desert would have been nice. We were the ONLY patrons in the establishment for almost an hour so it’s not like they were overwhelmed. That our anniversary was completely overlooked or ignored was a the deal breaker for me.
