Enjoyable dinner

Very relaxed atmosphere. Visited using a GroupOn deal which was applied to the entire menu. With a 39 wine credit. Waiters were attentive but never rushed. Would try again

I love going to Chez Jacqueline, you definitely need a reservation, or you will be waiting some time to be seated. I always use Groupon when visiting since this reduces your expenses significantly. They have amazing food!

I know Macdougal Street can get quite touristy at times and for that matter so does Houston but if you're looking for local, neighborhood atmosphere just stop around the corner and give Chez Jaqueline a try. It will reward you with an excellent bistro meal that won't break the bank. Just bring an appetite to it's wooden table and if... More

I used a Groupon for a three course French dinner at Chez Jacqueline on a thursday evening. I was half expecting we would be treated as second class customers but to my delight the staff were very courteous and accommodating. We had escargot and foie gras for appetizers and salmon and sirloin steak as entrees. Both were really good. The... More

It is always great to know that an independent restaurant that has been in business for over 36 years (it opened back in February 1979, about 3 minutes' walk from the present location) is still well alive and kicking no matter what transitory trends are in vogue now, organic, local, fusion, etc. What is even better to know is that...

Like a lot of people we had a Groupon for a three course meal for two plus a bottle of wine There were 4 of us, so double the offer, and everything, including the service was very good. and it was delicious. Would I go there without a Groupon; probably not.

Wonderful wonderful wonderful! Our first visit and we will definitely be back. Great menu and food, great atmosphere, beautiful interior and exterior and great value for money. What set it apart from other restaurants was the service, which was a model of what exemplary service should be.

Daily prix fixe specials offer many options for 3 course meals below $30; frequent Groupons offer the same plus a bottle of wine for $69 a couple. The regular menu is much more expensive, however. Best of all, the food is consistently excellent--try the mussels; calamari; trout; duck; roast chicken; steak frites; and apple tart. Cute, cozy atmosphere; excellent friendly... More

It has been perhaps 20 years since we ate here. I'm not sure why it took so long to return, but it won't be that long again. The food was excellent. The foie gras did not disappoint as an appetizer. We had 2 specials for entrees- grilled Mediterranean sea bass was wonderful and the salmon risotto was also delicious. The... More

My wife and I ate at Chez Jacqueline this past Saturday evening and we've frankly got mixed feelings. The restaurant is a cozy little place that was only somewhat busy at 6:30 (less than half full) though, interestingly, all the seats at the bar appeared to have have been taken. By 7:30 the entire restaurant was full and lively, with... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
