Great food. Dislike having to pay for bread. Service was a little chaotic getting order in. But after that was perfect.

We were there for a wine dinner. Our experience didn’t live up to expectations based on our first visit which had been incredible. Both the flavor combinations and the execution of the dishes fell short of the mark. Water, champagne, wine and food were all served lukewarm. Even sent back one of the dishes because it was not hot and it came back just barely heated through. Dessert course of panna cotta was not set. Was just a puddle on the plate as well as extremely untasty.
However, when we expressed our feedback to the manager she listened sincerely and thanked us for giving our honest opinion. She did the absolute right thing by offering her apologies for our less than perfect experience and sent us a gift card to be used at a later time.
We will be back. Everyone has an off night and it may have been a combination of trying to pair foods and execute the same menu for most guests for a wine dinner and a Tuesday night. Our first visit was so good (food, service, ambience) that we will certainly give them another chance.
Also want to show our appreciation for how they handled our concerns. Top rate befitting a restaurant that wants to continue to improve.

My husband and I had a wonderful time for our anniversary. My husband and I were impressed with the quality of the food, the drinks, the decor, the ambiance and the service. We thought it was very good value for money. We wish we lived closer so we could come more often. Would definitely consider it a fine dining experience! We definitely will recommended it! Already planing our next trip to Jeune et Jolie! Can't wait!

Had to try it this last weekend. The staff could not have been better. This is 4-star cuisine hidden in Carlsbad, CA. I’ve been to 3-4 star restaurants in France, and this is as good or better. And the prices are great for what they offer. I am planning our next visit to try out the chefs special.

It was my girlfriend’s first time going to a fine dining restaurant and she had an amazing time from the food to the attention from staff. We each got the tasting course with wine pairing with an order of frogs legs. Each meal that came out was amazing. We enjoyed the build up from the lightest dish to the heaviest. The dessert was a perfect way to end the evening. Brining out the truffles as a goodbye treat meant so much.

This is it. The restaurant that foodies who have been waiting for to enjoy creative culinary delights from a chef who aspires to multiple Michelin stars in
San Diego has arrived !!!
We gave the chefs their best shot by ordering the “Carte Blanche” 6 course tasting menu!! And they performed superbly!! Since this menu changes often, I won’t list the wonderfully prepared creations we enjoyed, but for $90 per person I guarantee you will not be hungry or disappointed when you leave!!

We came specifically for the 3 course $35 special on Mondays. We chose also the $15 wine pairing
It was a good value. Reasonable portions and interesting wines

Amazing ambiance and food. Best restaurant I've been to in north county. Pricey, so great for special occasions. I didn't like our original table in the back and the host was kind enough to move us up front.

Great restaurant with incredible food. Very similar to Campfire, the sister restaurant, in a lot of ways. I was worried the food might not be up to the quality of Campfire, but was not disappointed. The menu is very interesting and unusual, but everything tasted absolutely amazing. Would absolutely recommend to a friend and would not hesitate to go back.

Celebrated my sons 17th birthday and we tried and loved the 9 course meal. It was equal to many 2 and 3 Michelin star restaurants in quality. Yuka was our server and she was amazing! Great service with entertaining explanations of the food and shared with me data points of my son who is a scorpio, something I never realized until Friday.

Anyways highly recommend this restaurant. Btw, the music was awesome, all on a reel to reel! Wow!

We have a lovely dinner and our waitress was great. We arrived at 5:45pm and the restaurant wasn’t very busy yet. They have a great happy hour where you could chose 3 dishes for 44 dollars. A great value! The first two courses where awesome! Then the restaurant became super busy!!!! We waited 25-30 mins for our last entree and two out of the 5 dishes were like warm. Which was a bummer. They are busy because they are super good!!! The food is creative and very tasty! I recommend going but just time it correctly. Maybe a Friday night might not be your first choice.

Great food and service, from the appetizers “un” through the main course “deux” . Especially the lapin (rabbit), chicken, and pork dishes. Great combination of flavors. Be prepared for a pricey l’addition. Three drinks plus two deserts, two appetizers and three main courses came to $200. Still great for special occasions which this was.
