Restaurants in Alsace traditionally have a formal main dining room as well as a casual dining room known locally as a weinstube or brasserie. At the brasserie, diners may enjoy traditional, hearty Alsatian dishes in a warm and relaxing atmosphere. These friendly establishments are immensely popular with Alsatians and visiting them is always the best part of my trips back to Alsace. I opened Jacques' Brasserie at L'Auberge Chez François to bring the tastes and comforts of the Alsatian brasserie to Great Falls.

Our server was not up to par. Asked us to order before we barely sat down. He was so inattentive the bus person served us two courses usually the service is fabulous. He was also very hard to understand. Everything else was fine but a bit too much bread I g on the soft shell crab. We there frequently

First time at Jacques although I’ve dined at the main restaurant about 6 times. My wife and I were both underwhelmed. My seafood pasta was just ok as was her rainbow trout. And the waiter was perfunctory, just doing his job with not enough attention to us. Disappointing since the main restaurant has been a favorite for over 20 years for special occasions. I hope my experience was just an aberration as I live the place.

We decided to go to Jacques' Brasserie for our anniversary. It turned out to be a great decision. The food, service and atmosphere were all wonderful and up to the occasion. We shared the smoked salmon plate and ceasar salad, and then had the boulabase and beef for main courses, followed by dessert and complimentary champaign (thank to Danny). We strongly recommend Jacques' Brasserie to others.

Jacques outside on a moderate summer day is memorable. We sat out in an area between his beautiful vegetable gardens and the Brasserie. It was mid afternoon and we could still get the brunch menu which has lots of interesting choices. Summer also means fresh vegetables from that garden so make sure to try a salad. Jacques was out and about busy making his guests feel welcome which adds to the ambience. It is worth a drive to eat up at Chez, or downstairs at the more casual Jacques. The food is authentic country French and always good. His staff are attentive and personal.

Good food in a nice atmosphere (a bit noisy on a Saturday night with several large groups in the small room) with pleasant, unobtrusive (and a tiny bit unpolished) service. Nice outdoor area too. I had salmon with bearnaise, cooked perfectly. Husband raved about his tournedos. Ate too much bread but it was irresistible! All in all a delightful evening, wish we lived closer to go more often.

Lovely outdoor seating Jacques' Brasserie at L'Auberge Chez Francois! Even though the garden is first come first serve but the manager was so kind to reserve the table for 4 of us (2 friends from DC) ahead of time since I've requested 2 weeks before when we were there to celebrate our 2 kids birthday. One of my friend is allergic to a bug bite, so we ended up moved inside the restaurant. The service is exceptional here! My DC friend had a bake lobster and it was delicious well cook! I love all the appetizers...It's the best on the menu which I usually order several dishes to share. The beef cheek bourguignon and the escargot are the best dishes, plus the cocktail tuna tartar that you must have. We are local in Mclean, VA so this is the place for us especially for any special occasion or to bring friends and relatives from out of town.

Perfect as always. Great for anytime you just want great food and service. It is a very comfortable atmosphere-not the formality of a more traditional fine dining restaurant but you willl always receive attentive first rate service.

Love our neighborhood gem! The service and food are second to none and the ambiance is perfect especially since the outdoor patio has been redone and there is more seating. Jacques is so inviting and personable. Victoria is a delight to pick out wines with or to just talk about wines with. Can’t recommend highly enough.

If you are in the mood for classic french cooking in a more relaxed atmosphere than Chez Francois (above), then the brasserie is a great bet. You can enjoy many of the same dishes and same great service. It is a little noisy at times but this more casual and intimate off shoot of the age old and well respected L'Auberge is a nice option for dinner or happy hour.

The brasserie was excellent and the food was very similar to the main dining area where I have eaten numerous times. Service was great and the choice of food was very good. The only negative point I would make is you now you have to make a reservation to eat in the Brasserie where before you did not need to.

Happy Birthday! I celebrated my birthday at Jacques'. Danny made it special as he does with everyone. You cannot miss Danny's huge smile and he is always on the move making sure everything runs smoothly at Jacques'. I knew that I really wanted their celebration dessert which is a beautiful meringue that has ice cream in the middle. The meringue is light and chewy. It is beautiful and delicious. I started my meal with my favorite starter the roquefort tart and had my favorite lentil soup. I also have the pumpkin white Russian and while you think it is only for the winter, I drink it year round. It is dessert in a glass. It's light enough though to have more than one. Besides it being my birthday, my husband took the opportunity to get the Lobster Thermidor which is only served on Friday nights. It is beautifully prepared. I am happy I made Jacques' part of my birthday celebration.
