With a party of 5 sophisticated travelers I dined here last evening. We arrived so late that the first question was; "Is the kitchen still open?" Not only was it open, but we were served a delicious meal in this small restaurant in the "Italian" section of Wilmington. The street parking is limited, but valet parking is available. The restaurant... More

Tried Bistro Jacque for the first time based on reviews and recommendations-we were not disappointed. Comprehensive menu and attentive, pleasant service. Started with a glass of Bordeaux recommended by the host and then ordered a bottle. Had the Mixed Beet Tartare and Pate starters-both were excellent. Entrees were the New YorkStrip and Frites, and the Schnitzel Cordon Bleu-both were delicious... More

Three generations celebrating together in festive setting w/delicious food and friendly, personalized service...a lovely evening. Special menu for the occasion didn't offer Jacques specialty (Belgian style mussels), so I chose escargot...just right garlic/buttery flavor...and steak with Lyonnaise potatoes. We shared two excellent desserts, a pear/apple tarte tatin and the bistro's chocolaty profiterroles...yummy. Lots of good beer and wine choices; we... More

Whether you want a quiet dinner in the restaurant, a large table aside from the dining room for a family get together or just a few cocktails and a lite meal at the bar. Bistro Jacques is one of the best kept secrets in Wilmington for any occasion. We love Jacques pastas, mussels, salads and the best French Onion soup... More

Bistro Jacques offers a perfect Bruxelles bistro experience, with wonderful mussels, fabulous escargots, homemade pates and a manageable and affordable wine list. But what makes Bistro Jacques special is the masterful service and the welcoming atmosphere by all, even the valets who park your car. And Jacques himself is not just a proprietor, he is your host--genuinely concerned that your... More

An awesome dinner... Escargots... yummy. Panzanella salad was excellent... Chicken Cordon Bleu... delicious. Mussels Provençale took me back to Bruxelles! No room for dessert but the owner made lemoncello was a perfect finis!

I very much enjoyed Bistro Jacque. The food was good and the service was amazing. The owner was very friendly. I gave it 4 only because they couldn't find our online reservation. It was no matter, we got there early enough to get a table but a half an hour later and it may have been a problem. I am... More

We chose this restaurant, now re-named Bistro Jacques, based on other Trip Advisor reviews and were wowed from start to finish. We made reservations and asked for a nice table since it was our wedding anniversary. Our table was perfect -- a comfortable booth and service throughout the evening was outstanding. We began with the "To Share" appetizer and chose... More

Wilmington Delaware has more than its share of fast food and big chain dining, but good old fashioned restaurants run by their owners, especially in the city of Wilmington, are a dying breed. Yes, there's the iconic Mrs. Robinos, but for a new place, you MUST try Jacques Bistro. Jacques is working his tail off to give you the finest... More

My wife and I have dined here a half a dozen times--always dinner--and always enjoyable. Even though the name is changed, Jaque is still the ever present owner and gracious host. He also makes a delightful limoncello! The Euro theme works well, as there is nothing else like it in the area. While there are staples on the menu such... More
