    We celebrated our anniversary and Jeune et Jolie made our experience very memorable. We selected a heated patio instead of a standard seating. The noise lever is much higher inside, closer to the bar, so we are happy about selecting the patio. The table was a bit smallish, but we managed. Our drinks and tasting menu dishes were yummy and almost too pretty to eat. The staff were accommodating, everyone acknowledged our special day, gave us a card signed by different members, started us with a surprise bubbly and ended with little “present” sweets. We definitely recommend this place for special occasions.

    The food was spot on for every course. The only one we didn’t care for was the final “gift” treat. It almost ruined the dinner for us. The noise was too loud for this type of dining experience. We couldn’t hear the description of the food or wine pairing. Cute ambience but the food was awesome!! The lamb upgrade is worth every penny!!

    The food and drink were exquisite, but there may need to be a re-assessment on how to keep the outdoor patio protected from wind. The cold wind was quite off-putting. The service was exceptional once the courses began. Prior to that, there appeared to be a lot of confusion as to who would be taking care of us. We gave our preliminary drink order to 3 different people who walked up to the table. But overall, it’s a wonderful place for a special meal.

    Our server, Nate, was fantastic. Without a server like him, our experience would have been a total loss. As many reviewers have commented, for the cost, Jeune et Jolie is a disappointment. I likely would have been as disappointed at half the cost. Many of the dishes lacked notable flavor and seemed tired and dated. Also as noted in other reviews, portion size is abysmal. The main, at least, should be a satisfying portion. With so many other good restaurants in San Diego’s North County, I’d suggest skipping this one.

    Jeune et Jolie is superb! Highly recommend the tasting menu pairing with non-alcohol cocktails. Staff's attention to detail is impeccable, and watching the kitchen create such masterpiece with precision is amazing. I throughly enjoy the drinks very much. Ambiance is lively with shocked faces enjoying the delicious taste of every new dishes coming out of the kitchen. Crudo, Saint Jacque, Perdrix, and Baba Au Rhum were my highlights. Overall, a well awarded Michelin Star restaurant.

    One word: impeccable! In a total bonehead move I booked my reservation on the wrong day, but much to my delight and surprise, they were extremely accommodating. The experience started at the door with a professional and polite hostess handling the situation gracefully. The GM, Rachel, was nice enough to get us a spot. Then came the outstanding service from the bar staff, and food runners…each one with detailed and articulate descriptions of the food. The food and drink speak for themselves, and quite frankly they are award winning for a reason. You could never regret a single morsel you would consume here. The atmosphere is cozy, but still has a fun and lively feel. After one of the best and most imaginative meals I’ve ever had, I can safely say I’ll be back. Thanks to the whole team there, keep it up!

    I don’t know where to begin. I’ll start off with the staff. They were so nice and friendly. I took my sister for dinner here for her birthday. It was our first time at Jeune. They made the whole experience so special by giving her a card signed by the staff. They also gave us a little champagne to celebrate the occasion. It was also raining cats and dogs at the time. They saw us trying to figure out the entrance. We were going to go around, but they let us in through the back door. Talk about so considerate and generous. I would go back just for them. On to the food. We ate a ton of apps, and they were all out of this world. They were the highlight of our meal. We both had their take on a French 75. Absolutely delicious!!! Next we had the four course dinner menu. We loved the tartare. That was the stand out of the four courses. In between our courses, they brought out even more food, and they were all stand out hits. Insert drool emoji . We were so full. We ate EVERYTHING. EVERYTHING!!!! We are already planning our next trip. This time we will stick to bar menu and eat almost everything on it at least twice!!!!

    My GF and I had an amazing time at Jeune! Everything was very tasty and well presented. Christian and Jacob were kind and knowledgeable and made the overall experience great! I can’t give the overall rating a perfect 5 because I genuinely think it’s overpriced for the amount of food you get. Obviously the focus is quality and flavor but my issue is that when you get to the main course it’s gone just as fast as an appetizer. I just felt that the sea bass and partridge portion was ridiculously small. I acknowledge that I myself eat more than others but when I spend 230 on food plus cocktails, tax and tip I’d love to walk out and not be hungry…I loved the experience but it’s tricky to pin point the value when I have great experiences with Indian, Thai, Korean and other cuisines for a 1/4 of the price and walk out full. It was a great anniversary dinner and my GF loved it! However, even she felt that it wasn’t enough food. I would definitely recommend Jeune but I would tell them my concern on pricing and quantity…however, maybe I’m just a fatty lol

    Pace of service was very off. It was 30 minutes until our order was taken, and 45 minutes until we received our first dish from the raw bar. There was another long gap before our third course. Never any apology or even acknowledgement from our server. It was our 4th or 5th time dining here - we dine about once a year for a special occasion and look forward to it for months - and this was the most disappointing due to the service. Food was amazing as always.

    We had a fantastic evening Jeune et Jolie! You definitely deserver your Michelin Star. The food, service and ambience were 100% on point. It was a milestone birthday for my husband and he described our night as "perfect"!! All three gentlemen in our party are all French Chef's with 50 years each of experience. We were all equally impressed and look forward to next time. Thank you Chefs and the entire staff; we know how much work goes into what you do. We appreciate you sharing your talents with us and making Jean-Pierre birthday special! Merci Beaucoup!

    We had a wonderful experience but the experience plus food quality was not worth the price. My Fiance was a fine dining chef and agreed. We got 4 courses but for the value should have been 6 or larger portions (or cheaper). The flavoring of the food was good but sometimes the dishes just had unnecessary additions we think to drive up price. This was my second time. I just overall think I would not come back nor recommend based on the food and price. service was excellent and what it should be for a fine dining experience. Good people and staff.

    Amazing meal. Every course of the 4 courses (plus an amuse-bouche and an incredible roll with butter) were outstanding. Perfect serving sizes on all courses. Great service and timing of each course. Lots of prix-fix meals we’ve had get you in an out very quickly. This was great. About two hours. Plenty of time to eat, relax and enjoy the whole experience. My only issue was the music. Very weird for a high end French restaurant. Not sure why you wouldn’t have nothing but Jazz or classical music. It sure would make the atmosphere more fitting with the overall dining experience. Picky, but I’m a professional musician who really notices music in all environs.
