Chez Jacqueline

Since its opening 30 years ago, Chez Jacqueline has managed to capture the real and true flavors of the Côte d'Azur. Located on MacDougal Street in the West Village, the charming neighborhood bistro offers simple (direct) sustaining food for which Nice is famed. Whether it's the traditional 'soupe de poissons' served with garlic croutons and rouille or the Daube Nicoise, tender braised beef in a pungent, red wine sauce, Chez Jacqueline's cuisine is as close as one can come to Nice in New York.

"I took my family to Chez Jacqueline for a pre-theater dinner. I have been here before several times. I have always had at least a good meal here, but this time everything was perfect! The food was delicious and our waiter was very friendly and helpful. All around it was simply a terrific meal."

"Had a really pleasant dinner here - quite a small place; soups and entrees (I had a black pasta, my wife had the cassoulet) were all very nice, tasty, etc. Nice service, nice ambiance, quiet but nice music. Also a very nice price (and a moderately priced wine list by NY standards). We will add this place to our list."

"You should be aware that Chez Jacqueline will cancel your reservation after you've paid your check. Yes, they cancel it with Open Table so they don't have to pay any thing. This is the third time this has happened, and each time I call back it was a "mistake" THREE TIMES!?!?
The food has gotten worse, and the attitude as well. Very snooty for such a casual Village place. We will never go back again and would definitely NOT recommend it!!

"I've eaten here a couple of times, when attending events at the Greene Space (in the neighborhood.) It's friendly, warm, cozy; and the food is reliably good. Only disappointment on my most recent visit was the cheese board -- inadequately described by the server, and not sufficiently varied -- just 3 cheeses (including a mess of stilton which had fallen apart, and a tiny wedge of brie...) I know this place can do better than that. Cheeses notwithstanding, I will come back to this enclave of warmth, civilization and (mostly) good food."

"Had a wonderful date night here! We shared Escargot and Fois Gras, the wife had duck while I had steak with peppercorn sauce. Sorbet and Creme Brûlée desserts. We shared a bottle of of very good Pinot. An overall fantastic meal and we didn't feel weighed down afterwards. Everything was on point and the service was fantastic, along with a quiet ambiance that we both loved."

"It has been perhaps 20 years since we ate here. I'm not sure why it took so long to return, but it won't be that long again. The food was excellent. The foie gras did not disappoint as an appetizer. We had 2 specials for entrees- grilled Mediterranean sea bass was wonderful and the salmon risotto was also delicious. The wines were reasonably priced-which is somewhat unusual in restaurants these days. The waiter was attentive and there was not a long wait between courses. Like I said, I look forward to returning."

"Chez Jacqueline is a wonderful place for a wonderful time. We arrived a little early for our reservation: no problem; we stayed a long time: no problem. The drinks came promptly - generous doses; they brought some Nicoise olives without hesitation. The server was so attentive and yet not intrusive. She felt the tone at table and fitted right in to it. The food order was taken when appropriate, it came in a timely fashion. The cuisine was just so very good: one of us had the French Onion Soup, his test for any French restaurant in the US - and it passed with flying colors; one of us had the artichoke ravioli, which was rich and scrumptious; the other two of us had the Truite amandine, simple and delicious. The rose was perfectly chilled and very tasty; we didn't need a 2nd bottle, but our server saw our glasses were empty but we still had a couple bites of our meals - so she offered a top-off from another bottle of the same wine - that's classy. Very good desserts, followed by a gift of a digestif - again, a generous serving. The whole evening was so pleasant, so much fun, and so easy. We will certainly go back to Chez Jacqueline."

"The service was great, the space is welcoming and tastefully decorated. The food was rather mediocre, with the grilled shrimp appetizer a notable exception. The wine list was reasonably priced."

"A great neighborhood gem! Can't say enough about this restaurant. I had branzino, a special that night, and my husband had duck. Both were fabulous. Our server, Janet (if I remember correctly) was friendly and attentive but not hovering. Simply a lovely little place with wonderful food and excellent service. Enjoyed talking with Ives as well. Thank you for a memorable dining experience. We'll be back!"

"Calamari were awfully burned, pesto rissotto was undercooked; there were only 3 medium size scalopes in the dish charged at $32; however, the lamb dish was O.K. Tart tartin was mediocre.
Service was very nice; all together it is an overrated restaurant.
