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.

We love the less-usual, but authentically French dishes. Do you have others to try on the menu?

As always, we loved our visit and meal! We brought a visitor from Okinawa, Japan, for a lovely lunch on Sunday. He was very impressed and loved his meal!

This restaurant is always such a pleasure to step inside. The team is so warm and gracious. On this occasion we were celebrating my friend’s bday and Daniel brought us complimentary champagne to the table to make it extra special. The omelets were delicious as usual! Thank you to everyone each time!

Exceptionally good food in an upscale neighbor restaurant! During the winter months, because patio dining is not available, the noise level is sometimes difficult i the small space.

Would highly recommend.

We always have a great meal at Jacques Brasserie. The food is always great, never disappoints! A little slice of France away from France. And the desserts are hands down the best!

We went with two other couples - it was fantastic! The food is always off the charts, and the atmosphere is warm, inviting, and comfortable. The service is not always on-point. We waited for all to be served, with some food coming out ahead of others, but all in all a very pleasant experience.

The food was exceptional and authentic. Service was very professional. My only complaint was that it was way too quick and we felt rushed. We were in and out in 60 minutes as the service was so fast.

Jacques called me personally to follow up on this review which I appreciated. You need to let the servers know if you want to dial down the pace.

We've eaten before upstairs, but this was the first time in the Brasserie, wanting a more casual experience. The food is the same (except for the hamburger and Alsatian "pizza"), the service is the same, the wine is the same. In fact, it's as superb as upstairs, except it's a la carte and the atmosphere is breezy, a little loud, but otherwise warm and cozy. Our 80+ year old parents loved it and so did we. We're already looking forward to our return.

Chez Francois has been a family destination for 25 years, but the Brasserie is perfect for those nice luncheons with friends and family. My daughter and I celebrate the day after Christmas here and it never disappoints!

A holiday delight to have dinner in this cozy french bistro. Attentive service and delicious food. Go early if you need to be able to have a conversation. When the place fills up, it is pretty loud in there.
A great place to celebrate!

You were very crowded Sunday, which undoubtedly made things a bit slow but your staff is so attentive and warm normally that we would not criticize. I would say the omelets were a bit under-whelming. Not as flavorful as hoped. But frankly nothing could dampen my enthusiasm for your restaurant.
