Editorial Review – Enjoy authentic French cuisine, escargot, meat and seafood dishes.
Best crème brûlée in NYC – My husband & I went there for dinner Labor Day weekend (Sunday night) . It was very
quiet and quaint. The staff was very attentive and friendly. The crème brûlée is the best
I've had since my honeymoon four years ago in the French Polynesian island of Bora Bora.
I've been searching for crème brûlée as good as what I had in Bora Bora. I last tried it
at Balthazar and it disappointed me. Plus Balthazar was way too loud and crowded - the
tables were so close together that I could hear the conversations at other tables better
than I could hear my husband. Chez Jacquiline was the absolute opposite. It was rather romantic. We had great seats by the window. Too bad the only view is of an ugly park
across the street. I had salmon and hubby had the quail. I think he had a tarte for desert.
It was also pretty good. The entrees were not bad but also not spectacular. I will difinitely
be going back.
it was scrumptious – It was quite good i had the hangar steak and pommes frites (french fries) with a peppercorn sauce and grilled calamari as an appteizer.It was good.The creme brulee was really good.The butter that comes with the bread tasted as if they had just made it. however the service kind of sucked there was only one waiter and one busboy!
Good French Food, Decent Service – I dined here on a Saturday night, and was very pleased with the quality of the food. The menu offered a respectable selection, and all of us enjoyed our entrees. The wine list was long, but a bit on the high side. The host was very welcoming, but our waiter was inattentive, slow, and a touch condescending. I will go back, and will hope for a better server.
best authentic afordable french restaurant in NYC – I recently had dinner at chez Jacqueline, the food ambience and service are all excellent, Jacqueline is always a very gracious host. The food is always beyond expectations, if you like duck, cassoulet, sweetbreads or quails to name a few all that in the 20 dollars price range don't think twice, the wine list also has some great burgundies or bordeaux to go with that! BON APETIT!!!
Fine French – After living in Monaco for six months, I returned to New York needing to find a restaurant serving good southern French cuisine. While Chez Jacqueline's food can definitely be beat outside of the country, I have yet to find any better in the States. You must try the Soupe de Poissons Traditionelle as well as the Carre d'Agneau if you want to eat what a Frenchman would.
