What a great time and a great meal my husband and I had. We were first time customers on a Thursday night and we had a terrific time! The highlight of the evening was that there were two couples having dinner who spoke French which they were speaking to the owner the whole time and since it was... read more

I called this evening to make a reservation for Friday night. And as I am from out of town, I had a couple quick questions to ask the owner when he answered the phone: is it byob, kid friendly, etc. The owner matter of fairly said, "I am in the middle of closing my restaurant for the night.

I apologise if I misunderstood your questions and sounded rude on the phone. English is not my first language and sometimes my manner of speaking can come across as rude or annoyed when it is not my intention. As you can see most of our reviews are excellent when it comes to service, but since I am a small owner... More

I have been to Bistro Jacques a number of times but wanted to share it with two friends. We had a terrific time and all enjoyed our delicious meals. My friends loved everything about our visit. Proprietor Jacques is friendly, attentive and very kind. I wholeheartedly recommend Bistro Jacques.

Friends had the Pate of the day, mussels, and NY Strip. Of course we had to taste everything and ALL of the food was just amazing. i will definitely... More

We have been to Bistro Jacques many times. The reason we keep coming back is that it is a very nice restaurant. The food is good. The service is good...it's all good!

The service is the best, Jacques himself comes out to greet us and is a very fun person. The variety of food is great. Smoked salmon starter is to die for as well as the deviled eggs (just like Mom's) Of course the mussels are every bit as good as the ones in Brussels. The specials are always excellent .... More

In the past year I have enjoyed several meals at this restaurant. Starting with the valet parking to desert and everything in between it is an enjoyable experience. Jacques is a place the locals go for a good food.

We have had the pleasure of dining at Bistro Jacques many times- more than 15. Though some may be put off by the location, they need not fear. Valet parking is free and easy! As we walked in last night, there was an intoxicating aroma. Several other diners commented upon it. We enjoyed a round of drinks at the small... More

We had another wonderful meal at Bistro Jacques. The word is clearly "out" on this little gem because the place was packed-every table was full as was every seat at the bar. Service is pleasant and attentive and Jacques is "hands on" in the dining room at all times. The menu is varied and there are always tempting specials to... More
