The food and service at Jubilee is always wonderful and the restaurant is just starting to offer indoor seating. It's getting a little too cold to eat outside and lots of people aren't comfortable indoors just yet. Sitting out in First Avenue is VERY loud and noisy -- and cold. The restaurant isn't cheap but the food is a real treat.

Only second time In NY since Covid. Restaurant had a great outdoor seating setup nevertheless we elected to eat inside. Ate in empty room so completely safe. Food great as ever. Foie gras, chicken and a grand married souffle coupled with a nice Chardonnay. Service very very good.
When we left the outside was still quite busy so hopefully the restaurant is beginning to recover from the earlier shutdown
We highly recommend Jubilee. Either inside or outside hard to beat

Jubilee is one of the most consistently wonderful restaurants in NYC. They have adapted beautifully to outside dining during the COVID-19 pandemic. Service is friendly and attentive. The mussels (5 types) are a real treat. It must be difficult to adapt to this new type of outdoor dining, but Jubilee has done so brilliantly.

outdoor dining on the side walk due to covid
better ambiance inside but given circumstances we were pleased to be out side
like all outdoor adjustments, public traffic walks by
again, ok given circumstances but the excellent food would be even better in an indoor venue
we will be back

My meal was one of the best I have had anywhere — roasted scallops on a bed of creamy risotto and a side of sautéed baby Brussels sprouts.

I ordered my steak medium rare. It came a little too rare so I asked our waitress to have the chef cook it for “just two more minutes”. It came back after my dinner partner had finished his meal and was like shoe leather over well done. I didn’t say anything because I just wanted to be done had three bites and left. Was not worth $45, won’t be back again.

Great service. Attentive staff and great food. Our server Sam did a very good job. We had the onion soup and gazpacho for starters. Gazpacho was outstanding, totally made from fresh ingredients. Followed with Niçoise salad and comte cheese tavoli which was superb. Drinks and our wine was delicious as was the creme brûlée. We will be back.

A very disappointing evening. A Restaurant that we always enjoyed in the past. The owner insisted that we needed to sit on the side of the restaurant because she needed the other tables for four people. however that was not the case she sat parties of two at those tables very rude. I had asked the waiter if the mussels were medium size mussels and he said yes. The mussels were so tiny you could hardly find them and when I approached the owner about it she said they would be at the bottom of the bowl when I finished because I told her that most of the shells were empty. That was another untruth. It’s unlikely that we will go back to this restaurant really a disappointment

Chose Jubilee based on Open Table recommendations and couldn't have been happier at the choice! Outdoor seating was spacious and comfortable, menu was complete, Soufflés for desert and all! Food was excellent and delicious as expected and there was no rush or cut corners, just fine evening overall. In fact went back following night for desert and coffee! If your looking for great night out, great dining and amazing Soufflé's (the blueberry was outstanding!!) then this is the place to go...

It was dinner outside, socially distanced. They’ve done a lovely job of creating a cozy space! I wish they were on a side street; other restaurants in the neighborhood have better locations, but none of them have food as tasty as Jubilee ‼️

Had dinner there (outside) on Thursday, and was very pleased with the set-up and social distancing.

Sitting outside right on First Avenue is quite interesting. We had a lovely birthday dinner. Plus we remembered to order a soufflé in advance. We enjoyed the veal chop and the duck. Lovely rose wine and a very smoky scotch. Enjoy!

Seating is disorganized. We could not be seated despite having made a reservation.

Customers without reservations and who arrived after us were seated before us.

Is there a plan to organize sidewalk seating?

I've just returned to the city and had my first meal at Jubilee since the virus began. It was lovely eating outside and even the street noise on 1st Avenue wasn't bad. It was pleasant under the tent in the 90 degree heat. The food was wonderful as always.
