My husband has been wanting to try French food for awhile. We stopped in on a Sunday and had dinner. The food was outstanding,the waiter was excellent. We were able to sample wine and soup before we ordered what we wanted. I'll Definitely be back!

I've been to Chez Jacques on several occasions. An afternoon charcouterie board and a bottle in the courtyard in summer is superb. Brunch crepes are to die for. Traditional French meals are authentic. Beef bourguignion is tender, steak frites is delicious. Breakfast lunch or dinner...More

Chez Jacques is a Crowded Earth Kitchen favorite - impeccable service, truly outstanding food, reasonable prices, and a chef/owner who takes a personal interest in repeat guests. Favorite menu items include the cheese plate, seafood crepes, burgundy beef, bouillabaisse, and plum tart. The beet salad...More

By far, the best crepes in the city. Every dish on the menu is very French. Be ready to fall off your diet, but it's worth it.
