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.

As with l'Auberge, Jacques' Brasserie is as good and special on the 2nd, 5th, or 10th visit as it was the first time you were there. It exceeds all expectations every single time!

We had a wonderful experience at lunch yesterday at the Brasserie. We were greeted by staff members who were all wearing appropriate masks and gloves and were invited to choose a set, we opted to sit outside on the patio since it was a nice day. We shared both the hot and cold oysters which were delicious for a starter. I enjoyed the filet mignon burger and my friend had the seafood pasta, both were excellent. For dessert we both had souffles that were the best we have ever eaten, truly amazing. We were very impressed with service and their constant cleaning, we felt very safe in our first restaurant experience since early March. Well done!

As always it was lovely. The menu is slightly adjusted. The oysters were some of the best we’ve ever had. The halibut special was wonderful, if overcooked (sauce was perfect tho). We will always support Jacques and L’Auberge.

My husband and I are delighted the Brasserie reopened in time for us to celebrate our anniversary on Friday evening. I was very impressed with the many precautions the staff has taken to ensure a safe dining experience. Tables from the inside dining room have been moved to the lawn. The waiters wear masks and gloves. There are hand sanitizer dispensers near the restroom and at the entrance to the dining room. The staff even wipes down your credit card after you settle up your bill. We felt very safe, and look forward to dining there again soon.

We had reservations for the outside patio. They have a structure over the patio which allows use even in the rain. But the weather this evening was lovely. The seating area was beautiful, the lush garden all around. Really couldn’t be better. The service was flawless and the food was very tasty. The special on Tuesday was Veal Cordon Bleu. It was very popular - and we were glad we ordered it too. Perfection. Dinner was topped off with a stroll on the grounds, including the expansive vegetable gardens. Can’t wait to go back.

Another wonderful brunch at Jacques Brasserie! Always warm and welcoming. This time we brought my 21 year old son, who was home for spring break. He and my fiancé enjoyed the crepes suzette while I loved the filet mignon Benedict over sautéd spinach . Fiancé and I split a bottle of bubbly and my son and he had a lovely cappuccino to close out the meal. Service was excellent and it is easy to recognize why this place is so prized in the Great Falls community!

This is a nice, casual-atmosphere restaurant downstairs from L'Auberge Chez Francois. The food and service are excellent. Tables are fairly close together so you can hear other parties' conversations, but I think that adds to the friendly atmosphere. It's a good special occasion restaurant, and considerably less expensive than upstairs at L'Auberge.

Unfortunately we had the same waiter, Pat, that we had on our last visit to Chez Francois. He was just as annoying and argumentative. I asked for medium rare but it was practically raw. We had to ask other servers for help. Next time I will say please not him. The food was great but the service is not the same as it has been since we started coming when it first opened.

Our first visit to happy hour at the bar. We enjoyed several small plates. The snails, beef checks and seafood medley were favorites. The mushroom tart was ok. The wine and beer choices were yummy and priced right. The service was. as always, top notch.

The lobster salad is a perfect prelude to a decadent hot hazlenut souffle dessert. My friends very much enjoyed their calves liver entrees as well. Lovely place for a leisurely lunch on a dreary cold afternoon.
