I have been to this restaurant several times during the past few months. It has been consistently good as far as service and food. I made reservation on Open table, I was seated right away, did not have to wait. The food is well prepared and presented, the waiters are pleasant and efficient.

This restaurant is a neighborhood favorite, it always have a nice ambiance. Especially enjoyable when they have live music Thursdays - Sunday and it stays open later than the other restaurants in the neighborhood.

if you want to have a pleasant evening and good french food Jacques Brasserie is a good choice. Based on my experience I highly recommend this restaurant.

The atmosphere is perfect, it was Friday night and there was live music and even when we were leaving an excellent singer. The service was quick and the menu varied. Servings are good size.

Of the many French bistros in Manhattan, I think Jacques hits all the right notes.

1. The space. Very inviting. Two large rooms (by UES standards). I prefer the West room (204 East 85th) over the East room (206 East 85th). High ceilings, square dimensions, two large mirrors provide a sense of spaciousness. You may prefer the East room, which contains the crowded bar.
2. Cuisine. I like the limited traditional Brasserie menu, and limited specials, on just one page. Our choices were great. We shared the endive, apple slice, Gorgonzola salad. Our Bronzino and duck entree’s were on pointe. The tarte tatin desert capped it all off.

We will be back.

We, a party of 3, went in for lunch on a Monday. As expected. on Monday, it seemed deserted and we were seated right away. The restaurant has two areas of seating and it seems rather large.
We ordered Moules Frites Dijonnaise, Jacques Burger and Omelette Au Fromage. We also ordered two Belgian beers. They have a lot of choice for Belgian beers. The mussels were tasty and plentiful. They all come with lovely fries. We all enjoyed our food.
For dessert, we had apple tart with vanilla icecream, coffee and cappuccino. The service is very nice and pleasant. Nice spot on upper East side.

We loved the decor & warm bistro feeling of Jacques. The staff is very friendly & knowledgable.
And the food was wonderful.We were a party of 5 & all had steaks & frites, cooked to perfection.Nice wine list with plenty of choices.
If you are in that area, it's a great choice.
