It was my second visit and my friends first. We were rushed as we got there late due to rush hour traffic and had a previous engagement shortly after but our server knew our time line and got our food to us quickly. Loved the new fall menu.

They have really raised the bar for fine dining in North County but even more delightful is the new Monday night L'Ordinaire menu that features the same fantastic food, service and ambiance at a more modest prix fixe. We went for the first time and loved the whole experience - already booked it again for next month. A must try and lets you enjoy the beauty of Jeune et Jolie on a more regular basis.

Wow what an experience, the food is perfect every single time. The ambiance is wonderful and the decor to the detail is so well done. I celebrated my birthday with my friends and they helped make it the perfect night. Definitely my favorite restaurant at the moment!

The food was beautiful to look at but very small portions and expensive. There were no window coverings and the sun was uncomfortably shining in our eyes during dinner.

First of all, the entire staff is on point! knowledgeable, professional, friendly and passionate about what they are serving.
The layout is awesome with the open kitchen and bar in the center. Super comfortable booths to dine in. The food is thoughtful, beautifully plated and delicious (layers of flavor)... The cheese course however, amazing cheeses that were served, but served cold. My only suggestion is please serve the cheese at room temp. We will definitely be back soon.

Stunning mussels, divine whole prawns, stupendous black cod, and yummy scallops. Although it is not primarily a seafood restaurant, this was some of the very best seafood I have had in years. The pace is unhurried, the service is attentive, and the whole experience is outstanding. True Five Star dining.

We were greeted and seated for our reservation and waited upon immediately. They had plenty of staff and all were attentive. We had the Beignets and they were perfect, a bit of sweet and tangy with the rhubarb jam. We had the tartine with salmon and the croque madame sandwich (béchamel sauce a bit too salty) and both were great. Overall the experience was perfect and we will return.

We sat outside so the sound wasn’t too loud. However, we would not have enjoyed sitting inside. The acoustics were simply not appropriate for the haute cuisine and atmosphere they are trying to achieve. The food however was wonderful and the service superb. We will definitely come back and will make a point of sitting once again outside on the patio.

Birthday.
Pretty limited menu.

The scrambled eggs were more overdone than we would have liked and the croque was not toasted enough.

But, all else was delightful

Very rich French food, small portions beautifully plated with unique flavors and ingredient combinations. We had seats at the counter which was less comfortable than the tables and somewhat awkward, would recommend requesting a table. Otherwise, a unique dining experience in a lively, bright, energetic setting. Great for a special occasion.

Very much like a French bistro- lively, noisy, open kitchen. We loved it. Nice wines by the glass. Menu is limited - 6-7 entrees, but everything we tried was very good. The bread (while it’s $8) is worth it. We had the crab appetizer - excellent, very flavorful. For entrees we had the waygu beef, scallops, lamb and pork. Everyone was very pleased and the portions were reasonable - small for US standards but more than enough. The choc mouse and strawberry meringue were very good.

Pricy but would highly recommend.

This restaurant is awesome! The food is delicious and the food presentation is truly a work of art. It is fun to watch the staff in the open kitchen create the dishes with impeccable detail. The flavors explode in your mouth.
The service by all the staff is superb. Our server, Caitlin, helped explain the menu offerings and described each course as it was served. She was extremely pleasant and gracious the entire time. The timing of each course being served was perfect.
We will definitely go back when we are in the area again. This place is a rare find and well worth the price for such a unique dining experience.

We heard that Jeune et Jolie was owned by the same people as Campfire. Both are unusual eclectic excellent restaurants! The menus offer different fare than what you expect. Not your traditional French restaurant! But definitely worth exploring!

Even the wine list was special. I began with frogs legs, which were outstanding! They came with a somewhat light and spicy sauce. My husband ordered bread and butter -- really good French butter, with baguette and brioche! For our second course I ordered shrimp served in the shells with a mild broth and my husband had a pork dish. Both were excellent.
For dessert,my husband ordered a 3-cheese plate and I had strawberry sorbet with merengue filled with a smooth light lemon cream and rhubarb sauce -- a wonderful end to the meal! All in all, a bit expensive but exceptionally good food and service!

The bartender and staff were great. They were knowledgeable, kind, and efficient. The portions were on the smaller size but the flavors were fantastic and the drinks were incredible. I love the ambiance and would definitely go back and recommend it to others. It was a wonderful dining experience.
