Another stellar meal at Jacques! Many other places in the area can be inconsistent with service or food quality, but never Jacques! The staff are wonderful, the food-Magnifique! And the owners, Jacques and Kelly, treat you like family! Bistro Jacques is a MUST for anyone passing through or who reside in the area!

This restaurant, which we have visited numerous times with family or as a couple, is a don't-miss for dining in Wilmington. Nestled in the "Little Italy" neighborhood, the restaurant serves a classic European bistro menu in an intimate setting. Jacques himself will almost certainly stop by your table to check in, and will pause for a friendly chat if you're... More

Have eaten there twice with colleagues -- it s a great place to enjoy good food at a fair price in a relaxed non-stuffy ambiance. The hosts make you feel relaxed, welcomed, unhurried.

This is a wonderful European bistro experience right in the old Italian neighborhood. The mussels are in a Belgian vein. Quiet, low key. A great place to relax, talk, eat good food at a reasonable price. Take advantage of the free valet parking so you won't be worried about circling the block. Far less pretentious and overpriced than .many of... More

My husband and I don't mind travelling from Media, PA to this great restaurant. The food is always wonderful, and Ed, our server, also recommends a great glass of wine to go with the meal. The atmosphere is cozy, but nice, especially with the beautiful Christmas decor, I had the Beef Bourguignon, and my husband had the special, which was... More

Introduced a friend to one of our local favorites-and were thanked heartily. Started with the deviled eggs and smoked salmon. Both were delicious-very fresh and nicely presented. Entrees included two mussel pots (Provencale and Diable)-excellent as always. The accompanying frites were delicious-the bernaise mayo is heavenly. The duck entree, ordered medium rare, was perfectly prepared with excellent flavor. We indulged... More

As we drove in from out of town, we passed through some pretty seedy neighborhoods. Wilmington, DE, for being the corporate home of many US corporations and executives, lacks a lot of charm to say the least. We were getting worried until we drove under a large sign welcoming us to Little Italy. That immediately set us at ease. In... More
