Have had St. Jacques on my "must go to" list for years, and I finally got there to celebrate a friend's birthday. You enter into a french bistro and are seated in a very nice dining room. Wonderful "french" wine list, excellent menu, fresh baked breads. We both started with a salad with blue cheese crumbles -- very tasty. The Chef arrived with a flavorful sweet and savory taste of a creamy duck pate - makes your taste buds pop. Before your dinner is served, you get a small taste of sorbet to cleanse your palate. For dinner, I had black bass served with peas, which was delicious, and my friend had sea scallops in puff pastry, also very excellent. Both dishes were flavored with delicate sauces as a base. For dessert we shared "Profiteroles with chocolate sauce - sooo good; and since it was a birthday, the saying "Joyous Anniversary" was written in chocolate on the rim of the plate - very nice touch. I would go back in a minute because I would like to work my way through the entire menu - all excellent choices. Exceptional service -- all servers assist all tables - they time it right, so you don't feel overwhelmed with servers. The Chef visits and he is very charming. This dinner was a very excellent experience - can't wait to go again. A must try! Very classy without being pretentious!
