Fantastic place, closed and is relocating to old port. Just in case you are wondering. If the new location is as good as the old (ie food and service) will continue to be a regular.

The French bistro classics are what you expect and want. Oysters with mignonette sauce, steak frites, mussels. The wine list was very well priced. They're going to change locations soon so pay no attention to current reviews of the atmosphere.

Spent the weekend in Portland and stumbled upon Petite Jacqueline - what a lovely surprise! The atmosphere, the food, the wine (great $10 carafe), the menu choices and daily specials, the service - everything was perfect! Wish we lived closer to Petite Jacqueline!....
