Jubilee is an upscale restaurant that fuses French and American cuisine. This is a finder restaurant where guests can expect white tablecloths, a wine presentation at the beginning of the meal, and dishes with plenty of flavor and presentation value. Jubilee is an ideal place for an intimate date night, with every table being romantically lit with a centerpiece candle.
Jubilee's menu touches on classic American and French cuisine, along with the related flavors of bold Cajun cooking. Appetizers include bacon-wrapped shrimp in smoked cheddar grits, oysters Rockefeller cake, fried okra in a crab mornay, deviled eggs with pork belly and potato strings and a crispy catfish fillet. There are smaller options like a crispy lobster and pork belly sandwich, or more hearty dishes like a fried half chicken with wilted spinach and a grilled filet of beef with goat cheese, oyster jew and demibutter.
I think this is the best restaurant on the North Shore, and it compares very favorably with the great restaurants in New Orleans. The servers are attentive, but not intrusive. The atmosphere is quaint, but never too noisy, and the food is very creative. I tell everyone who will listen about Jubilee.
Don't miss this one.
Our family doesn't give presents anymore..we go out to eat..usually trying a new place each time. My daughter found this place (was driving by one day) and thought it would be a great place to try..so for my wife's birthday that's what we did.
Our reservation was at 7:15pm on a Tuesday (my wife's actual birthday) and we were the first ones at the restaurant. We were greeted warmly; the service was great (very attentive) and the food was wonderful. It is our "normal" practice to taste what the other person ordered, which we did. I had a fish, tasted my wife's steak (which she is STILL talking about) and my daughter's lamb shank. Everything was wonderful, including the cocktails we had.
I would recommend Jubilee to anyone wanting an upscale dining experience w/o an upscale price. I considered the pricing to be reasonable and below what you might find in a larger city.
The truly mouth watering food is cooked and seasoned to perfection. Service was very courteous and friendly. It has left an impression on me I won't forget anytime soon. It it a great place to enjoy really fantastic food in a delightful setting. Really deserving of top reviews for food -- great job!!!!
The food tasted alright. Nothing to brag about. We thought the prices were reasonable until we received our food. The entree portions were extremely small. My boyfriend and I both left the restaurant still hungry.
food, service good bar and wine list need work
It is such a treat to dine at Jubilee! The menu is creative, and is upgraded often. The food is outstanding, and the servers sparkle with enthusiasm and a caring attitude. For me, the atmosphere is just right... romantic, and never too noisy.
I'm a "foodie" who dines often in upscale restaurants, and Jubilee never disappoints. This is a superb dining experience that shouldn't be missed.
We just love this delightful little restaurant. Two of the four of us had the daily special, Pecan-Crusted Drum. We both felt that it was among the best fish dishes that either of us had ever eaten. The service is attentive, but not intrusive. The restaurant is small enough where you can carry on a conversation without raising your voice, and parking is easy and convenient. This one is too good to miss.

wife and I were out on date night, Our witress so cute, friendly, and really knew the menu. The service was fast and the food was so delicious , The chef came out to our table to make sure we were enjoying ourself. The prices were great. We plan on going back real soon. Parking was no problem.
Another gem in Mandeville. Alex Patout has scored another hit!! Everything was excellent!! We sat on the patio area because the weather was perfect and celebrated an early Mother's Day. However, the interior of the restaurant is on the level of New Orleans French quarter style. The menu is one of the best! So many things to choose from that it was hard to decide. That's the kind of menu I like.
Hey Mandeville!!! you have to dine at this place!! You won't be disappointed. Show Alex our support!!
The atmosphere was is lovely and the food for our Easter brunch was good but not great. We had a nice time but the restaurant was freezing. There were other patrons in a different room of the restaurant that were also freezing. We asked for the temperature to be raised several times but it was not. By the way I was wearing a thick cotton sweater and long pants. The four of us were all cold and it made the overall dining experience unpleasant.
