Went there for our 30th anniversary. My wife is a French food snob and she loved it! Atmosphere was relaxing and the service was very good. We will definitely return if we find ourselves in Milwaukee again.

A year ago I submitted a review of our first visit to Chez Jacques. Since then we have been back at least a half dozen times, as recently as this past weekend, for brunches, lunches, drinks and appetizers, and dinners. We’ve introduced many friends and...More
