    THE place to go for an excellent celebratory dinner. We celebrated our 25th in style with all four courses and wine pairings that perfect. The staff there are all knowledgeable and attentive to every customer without hovering

    We would return when the menu changes. This was our party’s first experience with a Michelin star restaurant outside of Europe. The atmosphere on the patio was fabulous until the fireplace was turned on. It was already a warm evening! While the wait staff was attentive and provided fantastic information, some servers reached in front of us to remove dishes and/or served from the wrong side while verbally apologizing for doing so! For our palates, some of the dishes were excellently balanced while others were not. Between everyone in our party, we ordered and tasted nearly every menu item. Presentation was absolutely beautiful.

    Would have liked to have the option to sit inside. Amazing food and outstanding service. We did not spare any expense and it was worth it. Other than being a little chilly outside and the seat I was sitting in not being as comfortable as I would like... this place has my highest recommendation.

    Food definitely was not as good as a year ago. Took my wife here again for her birthday this year. Food was good but not as great as her last birthday. Maybe it was not ordering the right food for our palate. Last year our server explained every item to select from on the four course menu. This time we were left to our own to guess as the descriptions lack detail. Was hoping to make this an annual location for wife’s birthday. But will prob not continue the tradition

    This was an incredible experience. We ended up w all 3 first courses due to a mishap. The kampachi was so good as was the tomate. The lamb carpaccio was excellent but ranked 3rd. The next course was beet w bone marrow and champignon. The beet dish was very unusual with the treatment almost making it taste like plum. The marrow gave it great smokiness. The mushrooms were delightful. The bread course was surprisingly good with the herb butter being rather addictive. The main course was A5 wagyu ribeye. Sometimes you wonder do I really need to upcharge a pre fixe. The answer here is someone has to. The quail was a great second choice. For desert why has nobody thought of chamomile ice cream before? Heavenly. The peche dish was also a treat but I couldn’t get past the first bite of the chamomile. All in all, what a great birthday dinner for my wife. The servers were all engaging and outstanding. The knowledge and recommendations were exactly what you want from this experience. Enjoyed it more than L’Atelier St Germain in Paris (believe it had 2 stars when we went).

    They never miss. Always love the food and the wait staff is incredible. The food gets 5 stars. For value, I would have given 5 stars, but were were told about an offering of 1/2 glasses of champagne. We got 4 1/2 glasses after our cocktails, but before our meal. We never asked how much it was, and the waiter never offered up that information. At the end of dinner we ordered another round of 4 /12 glasses of champagne. When we got the bill, we reviewed it and it turns out each half glass was $25, or $100 per couple. It was delicious, but not sure of the value. I wonder if a full glass would have been less than the $50 each couple spend on each round. This will not prevent me from going to this restaurant, it is more of a lesson for me and everyone else.

    Sun on the inside tables could be dealt with better. Had to keep moving to stay out of the glare. Music can be at a lower volume, and I understand that it reduces as the crowd is larger and noisier, but does it have to be that funky euro dance type of non- music?

    Truly superb food and service. We ate at Addison a week ago and this was remarkably better in every way. Out of this world. - Immediately greeted by hostess with a warm welcome and birthday wish. - Birthday card signed by the staff. (Now on my bookshelf!) - Noticed I was left handed after first course and all future cutlery was placed accordingly. - Every waiter that helped us was friendly, polite, and helpful. No stiff awkward interactions. - Went in a group of three, and we picked different options for more courses so we could get a few bites of each. They were all perfection on a plate. - Great ambiance on the outdoor patio. String lights, fireplace, cool music playing. - The gateau breton after our four courses was worshipped by my group. If you're deciding between here and Addison — go here.

    The food was beautiful and delicious. The flavor combinations and portions were spot on. The staff was so welcoming and professional throughout the night. I will go back but only for special occasions. The price of the dinner was more than I have ever spent (disclaimer: I have never dined at a Michelin Star restaurant).

    One of our most memorable dining experiences ever. The service was great, staff kind & attentive, but it was our server Nate who elevated the entire experience for us. Highlights: - fruits de mer / sweetbreads / A5 / cannele - yes - do the wine pairing with the pre-fix - outside dining ambiance was inviting, it was hard to leave Cons: - couldn’t eat more Details matter and Jeune et Jolie pays attention to all of them. Can’t wait to come back. Bon appetit!

    This was the second time we had been, but the first was pre-pandemic. Everything here is just perfect. First, I love that it’s fine-dining cuisine, but the atmosphere is casual. Everyone is so friendly upon the moment you walk in, and of course, the decor is just perfection. The cocktails are so creative and unique and delicious. The staff was so on top of everything…we never ran out of water, we never waited long for the next course, and everyone was so knowledgeable. Each course was heaven, and loved that they also added bread with an AMAZING butter (can I please take home a vat of that???), and an amuse bouche, and an extra little bite of dessert at the end. The flavors, attention to detail, and presentation gets you excited for each next course. So well done!!

    What a wonderful meal and night we had! We started with oysters ( which we eat often) and they were perfect. We each ordered different dishes for our courses so we could try as much as possible- the most memorable was the quail. Service was great and the patio was lovely. It is a great special occasion splurge!

    Overall, the meal had some amazing bites (mixed in with a lot of fairly average). I think you go to places like this to experience something different -- and it definitely provided that. I think it is overpriced for what you get and the overall quality -- but still a good place.

    I rarely rate restaurants. But this place is worth the effort. Truly outstanding experience. Innovative cuisine, interesting and thoughtful wine pairings, truly unmatched service, and a tremendous open kitchen, immersive atmosphere. But bring money, of course. The price matches the Michelin star.

    This was the most amazing dining experience my husband and I have ever had. Our server Joe was incredible, knowledgable, and passionate about food. We so appreciated each of his suggestions, all of which were phenomenal. I love the collaborative nature of the place. We were attended to by so many, and each person made us feel special. This place had been on our bucket list for awhile, and exceeded all our expectations for an anniversary dinner!

    This was, by far, the most outstanding restaurant at which I have ever eaten. I think only a restaurant in Rome came close. Everything about this restaurant was top notch. The team all worked together. You can sit mesmerized and watch the chef's do their magic. All of the servers know exactly what what foods are what and can answer any question. One server even went the extra mile and helped walk my husband (who is a Parkinson's patient) out to our car safely. I would go back to this restaurant tomorrow!

    My husband and I have been wanting to go to this restaurant for a while because of its many accolades and lack of availability but we were very underwhelmed with the food. Every course lacked development of flavors and balance…. One note, super boring and lack of heart. My husband and I ordered different courses so we can share and I have to say that nothing stood out as being remotely good, even the wagu was just OK. And to boot the service was extremely slow. It took well over 2.5 hours to get 4 courses. Very expensive!!!! I will not go back or recommend this restaurant to anybody.

    Classic French small portion cuisine to maximize the adaptation of the pallet within the first few bites - thus high quality with a variety of unique flavors. The ethos is a bit pompous unfortunately. This is Carlsbad, not Napa, and servers trying to pronounce sophisticated French cuisine names felt inauthentic. Cost is high as well. Too high. Be prepared to easily spend $200 per meal.

    We had some problems with our service last night. We come to you about every quarter but twice this month. Last night we had to wait almost an hour for our third course. The server was very apologetic. We think the problem may have been that we had several different servers whereas we usually have the same server for the whole meal. In spite of this, we still love Jeune et Jolie and will return.
