We recently had lunch at Petite Jacqueline with my husband’s brother and wife. All of us enjoyed our food especial the mushroom crepe and the Caesar’s salad. The wait staff was efficient and pleasant. We stumbled upon this place but will intentionally return.

We went here for lunch as a family and had the crepes and quiche. The pastry and crepes were sublime though the portions on the small side. Great quality though and a lovely atmosphere in the restaurant.

Very impressed. Had a lovely brunch there today. The crepes are outstanding, truly in the style one finds in Paris. Very credible wine list, etc. A keeper.
