Really bad experience! Stay clear of this place. I had been to Chez Jacques once, about a year ago, and liked the food so I tried to bring a friend after raving about the good meal I had had the first time. We were treated very rudely by the maitre d', who tried to put us at one of those tables nobody wants to use. When we asked, politely, to be put at a nice, sunny table that was just a few feet over and unoccupied, he argued with us, rolled his eyes, sighed, told us we had to sit where he put us, then stalked off when we insisted that he seat us at the unoccupied table. I have never been treated more rudely at a restaurant. Of course, we left and will never go there again. I think success may have gone to Jacques' head. Someone needs to tell him that dining isn't just about the food; it's about the total experience.
I found my experience at Chez Jacques, from start to finish, to be one of the most satisfying dining experiences I have had in Milwaukee. The food is excellent and consistent and the staff is professional but friendly. This is one of those places to return to multiple times; take your friends, family, business colleagues-- in short anyone you want to impress with your savvy dining choices.
This restaurant is authentic and good, although the outside seating doesn't offer much ambiance on Water (1st) south of National. The owner however is arrogant, with a lot of attitude. I will not go back just based on that alone. I felt uncomfortable even asking to pay our bill.
Better than the original. YES, the building looks like a re-habbed transmission shop, but don't confuse the yellow cinder block walls for the interior, or the incredible food experience. The same great food with some new offerings, a great wine list (the house wines are admirably drinkable), and they're offering omelettes again on weekends for brunch. I LOVE this place. The chicken curry crepes are sublime!
