    Kylie was great. Very pleasant, maintained a perfect pace ordering, delivery of drinks and food. Kylie was well informed of the food it’s preparation and proportions. Only complaint was the amount of calamari in the Cioppino was heavy and the lobster bisque was very salty.

    I brought my significant other for a birthday celebration and we are taken great care of by the team at Jeune et Jolie! The entire team signed and presented a celebratory card to him and, when our waiter realized he hadn't yet signed it, pulled out a pen at the table to sign and give his good wishes (despite all of the signatures being scribbles anyway, so we really wouldn't have known the difference). Staff was very knowledgable but personable, so none of the immaculate creations seemed out of reach for those who do not identify as gastrophiles. Very much recommend!

    Really good food and fun vibe, but the prices for the entrees are insane. I ordered trout and got only half of a 7” fish with a few julienned veggies (3 to be exact) for $36. I’d pay that for fresh salmon, but for half of a mere trout?

    We had our wedding anniversary dinner at Vigilucci’s. The food was amazing but the price for a steak didn’t reflect what we received. We dined there on New Year’s Day and the menu was not the regular one. Overall good ambience and experience except for the price.
