Richard Weiss, iconic restaurateur and sommelier, returns to London’s West End with Saint Jacques restaurant. A relaxed and discrete chic bistro setting, Saint Jacques makes the perfect venue for breakfast, a convivial lunch, early evening cocktail or intimate dinner to savour. 

Bringing new life to St James’s with classic French dishes and modern creations, the Saint Jacques seasonal menu blends tradition and innovation to suit all tastes – from Richard’s legendary tableside prepared Steak Tartare to a decadent fondant au chocolat.


"the home of joie de vivre"

At Saint Jacques we have a passion for traditional dishes combined with a modern twist. This has been reflected in the design of the restaurant, where new meets old and the interior amalgamates the characteristics of a warm traditional brasserie with a vibrant and fresh aesthetic.



Local, sustainable, British as well as French produce, freshly selected daily by the Chef. Prepared with artistic culinary skill and the utmost attention to detail. Magical, delicate and intense flavours, these are the paints on Saint Jacques’ canvas.

All our dishes are prepared and served with charm, love and joie de vivre!
