To start with the price: yes the place is expensive - like anywhere in Geneva. But it's really worth it. Service is extremely good with really super nice people. We even had the chef who join the table. The food is incredible.

We were, my wife and I, to this location for dinner in 2012. Great service and value for the price. We took the taste menu with the wines and were not disappointed. Dominique served us with a fine sense of humor that was very appreciated. We were really delighted by the taste, size and presentation of the meals. The dessert... More

Geneva is expensive, really really expensive, so this restaurant is no different from the rest of the city in that sense. The staff was professional ,attentive, and very amused when I took out my credit card at the end of the night while my husband watched. The place is old-school, so I imagine they aren't used to women paying for... More

Well spaced out tables with good service and quality ingredients, well presented. If you want to try frogs legs but are put off by the thought of very little flesh on lots of fiddly bones - order the starter of boned frogs legs with langoustines, which is very tasty. We can also recommend the veal sweetbreads in a pastry case... More

Food is excellent. Desert is excellent. Service is one of a kind in this deteriorating city. The waiters deserve a medal. Deserts are nice. The owner and chef jacks his self come out of his kitchen and great the clients and check if everyone is satisfied like nice old Geneva. Wish that a lot of restaurants copy on you.

A colleague of mine recommended Chez Jacky for a special evening as it was a bit more expensive than some of the Geneva restaurants we frequent. However, in retrospect, I really don't think that the fixed price menus are out of line with other fine dining options that we like in Geneva. We all got the three course menu of... More

I have been here before. It was recommended back in 2010 by a local to Geneve. The food was authentic French. Well prepared and presented. Service impeccable. The chef comes out at the end. Business lunch is a good value. Try to not eat a breakfast and go for the selection on the dessert cart! A must. Bon apps!

This place is not cheap, but it's worth every penny. The staff do their absolute best to treat you like you are king (or queen) and to give you top notch food. really good. Every time.
