This place is pretty popular and so is packed almost any night of the week. They have a varied menu so it's easy for everyone to get something he/she will like. The staff is usually very friendly and attentive. The artichokes are good (though a bit expensive) and the beet salad is recommended as is the French onion soup--hot and not too salty. Desserts are limited though--hope you like pie!

Okay, I know this place gets horrible reviews for two reasons: service and the wait. The wait is understandable as making souffles is an art form. Yes, the service is aloof at best, and they're not even French! But the food is slammin'! Put aside some time and go with the flow on the service and you'll be glad you dined at Cafe Jacqueline. Keep in mind, things add up quickly.
We visited on a Monday night and the place was empty, which is usually a bad sign. We were seated right away and our waitress was quick and attentive. The food, however, was lackluster at best. Overall, the food is not offensive; it’s just not, well, noteworthy. For really quite good Spanish tapas, I know of better places in the City than here.

Yeah, it can get loud in there and it seems like it's always overly crowded. But, it's the food that keeps me coming back. I always order the same thing so I can't really vouch for anything else. I just know that the cheese enchiladas with whole black beans are the bomb! Apparently, the Tequila is a draw here too. The bar is always lively. The menu is extensive with something for everyone.
