Very friendly, knowledgeable staff. Outside was comfortable and street noise minimal. I appreciated the servers suggestion for wine. The small plates were creative and delicious but could have been a bit larger. I plan to return and try some more of the dishes sitting at the bar for a quick meal.

All the food was great with the exception of the deserts, which were disappointing. Was about $100/person full in which wasn't bad for the quality. My first choice was the black cod, which was out, so I had the Iberico pork based on the server's recommendation. Wouldn't usually order this but it was great. Reports were the scallops were also very good. The presentations were outstanding and the food quite inventive.

This was our first visit to the restaurant. We made the drive down from San Clemente based off a recent review I had read claiming the restaurant as one of San Diego’s best new restaurants! Let me tell you, the food, ambiance and service did not disappoint! Patrick, our server had great energy and a wealth of knowledge about everything on the menu, including wine. We started with chilled Maine lobster, a selection from the raw menu. It was delicious and the presentation was fun! Then we ordered a very flavorful salad with pears, radish, blue cheese and walnuts which was a little on the small side but so, so good it gut us excited for the next course! For our main entrees we had the scallops and the cod, both excellent choices and again, packed with flavor. We had dessert as well, also a beautiful presentation and very tasty! I can’t wait for my next visit! I am dreaming of that chilled lobster and another glass of champagne!

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.

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.

Fabulous meal. Everything ordered was delish and on point. Our server Kayla was wonderful. From the oysters to bread service (baguette and milk bread-wow!!). Frog legs, salmon (first course), crudo. Perfection!! Main courses beef and black cod. Beef was cooked perfectly, cod flaky, moist. Ending was chocolate mousse with banana jam. Who knew this was a thing. Loved the combination. Very special.

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.
