A Belgian Gem

Jacques has created a true Belgian neighborhood restaurant, with lace curtains and space around the tables. The steak au poivre and the moules are delightful as are all the dishes

We have never had a bad meal at the 'Bistro'! The Belgium Mussels and Frites are a definite must! From the Boeuf Bourguignon to the Coq au vin you will not be disappointed. If you love Escargot, they are fabulous. Jacques is a MUST in our house!

this was my first time @ Bistro Jacques, my siblings love this place and have raved about it for about a year. I finally went and my meal was outstanding. the homemade lemoncello was beyond yummy, the creme caramel was diving and my muscles in garlic were to die for.

We enjoyed another evening at Bistro Jacques. We always look forward to dinner here and seeing what changes Jacques has made to the menu based on seasonal product and we were not disappointed. While we both were thinking we'd have the mussels again, we ended up going in different directions and didn't regret it. My escargot starter was delicious, as... More

Let me start by saying that Wilmington really needs a good French restaurant. I had very high hopes when I went to Bistro Jacques for dinner recently; some were realized, some not. First of all, you won't find a better welcome or better service anywhere. Bistro Jacques (hereafter BJ) offers free valet parking, an inviting reception, an attractive bar and... More

We started with the muscles. Though the broth was tasty the muscles were very small which made them difficult to eat. Each was about the size of a dime. I had the duck which did not have the skin rendered properly and was served nearly raw (chefs preference of cooking). My wife had the filet which was mushy. Overall not... More

I'm sorry to hear of your unsatisfactory experience. We are in the process of training some new kitchen staff, so we will make every effort to be sure that they are better able to serve our food to our customer's satisfaction in the future. I also apologize for the size of the mussels, but it was a very bad winter... More

We had heard good things about this restaurant. While it was not horrible, it did not live up to our expectations.

Everybody knows about French cuisine but when we think of Belgium, the only things that come to mind are "beer, chocolate & waffles". Jacques proves that Belgian cuisine is so much more. I started off with the cheese plate and the croquettes and could have very well stopped there since the appetizers alone are very much worth going to the... More
