I've been to Chez Jacqueline many times since I stumbled upon it in my college days. The food has always been delightful. Admittedly, I usually go for duck or some sort of game fowl (the stuffed quail breasts I had from their specials back in 1998 obviously made an impression as this is now 2007). One bizarre experience: I ordered in French, and got poulet instead of canard. It was still delightful - but I recommend ordering in English to be sure the waiter understands.

My husband and I have eaten here over the years and were never dissapointed until this year. He had rabbit that was dry, and my food was non-decript. Too bad, I miss the old food.

I have been coming to Chez Jacqueline for almost 20 years. The food continues to amaze me. If you need a place for a private party call Jacqueline-she hosted an amazing feast for our group.

I have Been a diner at chez jacqueline for years and have never been disappointed be either the service nor the food. The service is always personable the main waiter even remembers your name, what you like and dislike the wine you always order and your favorite food !The "brandade", fish soup, and all of the tapas are amongst the best outside of Provence that I have had, or don't even bother looking at the regular menu and just look at the black board, the specials are always spectacular, creative and delicious.Jacqueline is always a gracious host even though we would like to see her more often... The sidewalk cafe in the summer is the most inviting I have seen in manhattan. For a tab of under 60 bucks per guest with a good bottle of french wine I can only recommend it over and over again! bon apetite!

What a delicious surprise to stumble on this gem of a French Mediterranean restaurant in the heart of Greenwich Village! After an afternoon of shopping with friends in SOHO we were walking north on MacDougal Street when we were struck by of this pretty little restaurant. The gracious hostess (owner?) greeted us warmly and gave us a choice table near open French windows so we could people watch as we ate. The food was amazingly good! Fresh and perfectly done seafood! Mussels in a wine sauce that needs to be bottled it was so good! Shrimp ceviche with fresh grape tomatoes was to die for. We chose these starters from a large menu of delicious inexpensive french/mediterrainian tapas. We also had fleur de courgettes with a delicious tapenade sauce. Everyone’s main course was excellent but my main course of Grouper on a bed of perfectly cooked garlic spinach was sensational! The waiter was tres French and very knowledgeable. He paired our meal with a very reasonable and delicious Rose. He did not push expensive wines on us! Extraordinary value for the quality of the food and service! OK, so we bumped shoulders with a local celebrity as we were leaving, just icing on the gateaux. Long live the Village!

I brought my best friend here for his birthday. What a mistake. The atmosphere was shady at best--think cafeteria floors and wobby tables. Our waiters seemed knowledgeable, but our main waiter didn't bother to check on us the whole meal and was extremely condescending (not French condescending, which can be at times charming, but American a-hole condescending). The food was the worst French I have had in New York, and I even got so sick that I couldn't go out afterwards for the birthday! I'm not sure if this was an off night for Chez Jacqueline, because I had heard good things. But one thing is for sure: I will NEVER be back, and neither will any of my friends!

Me and my husband went here to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary last saturday (dinner). Service was good, the waiter took the time to explain us the menu. Food was very good, the Onion Soup...excellent! The atmosphere very romantic, even thought the tables and space are very little. Highly recommended. Food and service is well paid. Worth it to go on a date.
