We had the restaurant all to ourselves and had an amazing lunch to celebrate my friend's Birthday. The food was divine, and the wine that was suggested to go with our meals was perfect. Dessert was sinful. If you are looking for a special place to celebrate a special occasion, you cannot go wrong.

I had to drive around the parking lot twice to find the restaurant as I wasn't expecting fine French dining in a strip mall. The owner was on site and made some wonderful recommendations. Food was spot on and surpassed some of the meals I've had in Europe. Wine menu was excellent and paired well with the food. Great value for the money.

OMG! Absolutely wonderful, better than any meal we had in France. From the drinks to the entree to the desert-it was perfection. Excellent service by waiter & owner who visited our table to discuss our recent France trip. It was a expensive but worth every penny. Ambience is warm friendly French. A perfect special night out. Would highly recommend!! 1/9/2014

For no particular reason, it had been a couple years since we dined at St Jacques. We always enjoyed our meals before, but last night's dinner was amazing. All four of us were totally wowed by our appetizers, mains and deserts. This was 'break off the bread to soak up every last bit of gravy' good. We regret the great meals we have missed by not dining here more often ... a mistake we will not make again!

We have have always had a good dinner when dining at St. Jacques. This time was no exception. They used to have French waiters but it appears they have added American ones - as was ours. She was friendly and energetic, although a bit scattered. I started with the French Onion Soup. The broth was seasoned perfectly. My husband had the "foie gras two ways" and it was to die for. I had the beef short ribs for dinner which were so tender as to melt in my mouth. My husband had the lamb dish which was delicious. The dessert - Saint Jacques Vacherin - was a little bit of a disappointment - although quite tasty - it was basically a ball of ice cream covered in praline dust. For $11. The "warm chocolate syrup" that was described is just a squirt on the plate. More of a decoration really. I will try something different next time but definitely return to this neighborhood gem.
