Our first time back since Covid, and our first time with Chef Eric and his crew who were wonderful. The menu was interesting and more importantly delicious. We brought some San Francisco “foodies” with us and even they were impressed. If you haven’t been try the new outdoor patio, give yourself a treat and get a reservation ASAP-you won’t regret it.

Jeune et Jolie was fabulous! The staff were lovely and so very chic. The tasting menu was innovative and sublime. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the Chef was awarded a Michelin star.

EXCEPTIONAL !!!! We had reservations at the beginning of Covid that we cancelled and waited 13 months. Wow! Everything was amazing. From the Lebon cocktail that had a spice intoxicating scent every time I took a sip to each dish that was so unique and delicious. I don't usually give reviews but this was so so so creative and yummy!

Our tasting menu was really amazing, as were the cocktails. We were surprised that Chicken was the main course, and that the breast was just a half, for the price we paid. The service was good, not great. Our server was overly chatty for our liking.

While the main course was underwhelming, each of the other courses were truly delicious and gorgeous to look at. We really enjoyed it overall.

My fiancée and I celebrated our engagement with the “Starry Night” tasting menu experience. The service was wonderful, they were attentive and provided a few extra treats to celebrate.

Each item on the tasting menu was amazing, and the cocktails we ordered were wonderful as well. We enjoyed the patio and were plenty warm with the abundant heaters. Highly recommend for a date night or to celebrate a special occasion.

This is one of my favorite not-so-hidden gems in Carlsbad! From aesthetics creating the perfect ambiance, to a seamlessly appearing kitchen, this is absolutely the spot for foodies and absinthe lovers to unite. Quite possibly one of the most perfect dining experiences, and keeps me coming back for more time and time again!

Everything about our evening was fantastic. However when sitting outside make sure to request a seat on the newly renovated patio, our table of 4 was seated outside in front of the restaurant, it wasn’t the ambiance I was anticipating.

Had a wonderful experience at Jeune et Jolie. The staff are incredibly friendly and they make sure that your needs are always met. The food was wonderful. They look very small, but you end up full by the end. Each course is complex, refreshing, and delicious, leaving you wanting more. You can tell the chef and owners put so much attention to detail in everything from the decor to the food to give you an all encompassing experience. I feel a dining experience like this in LA or NY would cost upwards of $200+
Overall, had a wonderful night under string lights outside with great food. Can't wait to try again when the menu changes for the season. I'll be making Jeune et Jolie an annual birthday tradition along with visiting the flower fields every April. C'est si bon!

This was our second time dining here during covid, under the Starry Night menu. The food once again was outstanding, as was the service. More of a special event restaurant due to the prices, but well worth it. The remodel of the parking lot into an outdoor patio was well done and made for a more relaxing and enjoyable evening. We'll definitely be back again.

So much thought put into the restaurant design and finishes. Cocktails and wine selections are clever and so delish. Can't wait to go back!

The presentation was amazing as well as the service. We loved several of the dishes including a delicious coconut dessert. A few of the dishes were just “okay.” However I will never forget the popover. I’d go back for a special occasion.

We had a wonderful time, delicious food and cocktails. Service was attentive and friendly. We would definitely return. On our reservation we did indicate we were celebrating our anniversary, however no one mentioned it. Nor was there a special dessert offered. We didn’t expect or ask for anything but in our experience restaurants usually at least say happy anniversary. That’s just a small note on a fantastic experience.

Wonderful! The service was very friendly and attentive. There must have been a wait before we arrived because they kept apologizing, but we didn’t wait at all! The outdoor dining experience was well done with beautiful decor, plants and lighting. Unfortunately where we sat the heater was out, but it was still comfortable. Honestly the tasting menu on paper didn’t seem all that exciting ... chicken rolled in hay? Asparagus? Crab salad? But let me tell you this was some of the most flavorful, inventive, and delicious food I’ve had. We are big fans of tasting menus and this one really delivered. Everything was light and fresh while also packing a powerful flavor punch. Each dish was surprising and even a little whimsical. As an aside, the music was stellar. Would definitely recommend!

It was just wonderful! I recommend for folks to get the wine pairing with the 5-course meal. Every detail considered. They even had a greeting card, signed by the great staff, waiting at our table. They also surprised us with 3 amuse bouche additions to the 5-course meal. All in all just a classy and sophisticated experience without the pretentious air that some fine culinary spots have. The combination of a beautiful and quaint coastal town feel + modern French cuisine + excellent wine + warm and personal service. I took a photo of the menu that night just to have this little memory pop up in a year or so - not to mention all the food photos I took! My husband and I haven’t had a meal like this, of course, in a year due to the pandemic. It just meant so much to us to get back to a lovely “normal” in this divine setting and to celebrate my birthday (post pandemic). They don’t just provide a meal, they unfold a lovely experience! Couldn’t say enough good things! Thank you so much, Jeune et Jolie team, for the wonderful birthday experience!
