as always this restaurant outshines most, if not all of its competitors.The food, service and ambiance are perfect. Great for a special occasion or celebration. The choices from the prix fix menu will satisfy everyone and there are extensive gluten free options

I was in town visiting my son and family. He treated me to a birthday dinner at this amazing place. Even from the moment you drive in, you are transported to a French countryside. The waiters are all dressed in red vests, all very Alsatian....More

Celebrated our wedding anniversary here. Many terrific seafood entrées - beef and lamb choices are not so special (and the lamb is for two only). There are certainly pricier restaurants around that may justify high prices for what you are offered, but you won't find...More

We're long-time fans of the Auberge restaurant, but decided it was time to try the Auberge's (relatively) new(ish) bistro located downstairs from the main restaurant. It's open for brunch on weekends, but is usually open only in the evenings. The bistro is slightly more casual--...More

If you want to be transported to Alsace without the hassle of long airplane flights---this is still the place! In the main dining room the extensive menu seduces, and the prix-fixe is a solid choice. Jacques Brasserie is an incredible bargain for incredible food.

Dressy casual will be ok. You will see most men in sports coats. It is not a pretentious place but the clientele tend to dress out of tradition and respect for quality of the place
