We had an excellent dinner at Jubilee this past Friday! My husband enjoyed the mussels, and my filet mignon was top notch. Jubilee is a great neighborhood place with friendly staff. Looking forward to returning.

Decided to try this neighborhood restaurant for NYeve dinner. Food and service was great. Low rating because hostess led us to the worst table when the restaurant was not at all busy. Asked for a different table for which she ultimately accommodated us.

We went in for NYE and ate at the bar so we could watch a bowl game. It’s a lovely neighborhood place we go often. The bartender takes great care of everyone who dines at the bar. It was a special menu due to the occasion; traditional French specialties. The duck breast was amazing. The foie gras is always excellent. They have a good French wine list and very seasoned staff. It’s a regular spot for many folks in the neighborhood. Great service and very reliably French menu.

I love Jubilee and had a terrific meal there last night. Of the three excellent courses, I have to single out the really superb Grand Marnier Soufflé! The service was efficient and pleasant and the ambience civilized and comfortable.

One criticism: the bathrooms, now unisex (which is fine), do not lock. They need to address that.

My wife and I dined on the confit du canard (duck leg) offering on the regular menu.
We are partial to confit du canard and Chef Luc’s rendering of this dish was one of the best we’ve experienced both here in NYC and in France. The meat was flavorful, moist and falling off the bone, skin crispy, just the right amount of fat to insure flavor. It was accompanied by a rich, dark. sauce which was a treat in and of itself. My wife and I like Jubilee for its having maintained high standards. In short, it’s a real French restaurant

Everything was good but the service which was very rushed with the waiters behaving like they had to get home early. They did not ask whether we wanted any bread (had to ask for it), did not take time to tell us about the specials (had to ask for it), asked us 5 times whether we wanted a drink, cleared dishes immediately as soon as we had the last bite, poured more wine and water in our glasses every 5mins once we had a few sips, took away the wine bottle while not sure there was some left, etc. Again it felt very rushed.

Wonderful authentic French Bistro. We have eaten there many times-love the food, ambience and the service is always attentive. It is very fairly priced for the quality of what is served. We brought friends this time, and it is a comfortable environment to actually hear one another. They loved it and will also be back.

So, Jubilee is a neighborhood gem. The waitstaff is so very warm, attentive and wonderful. The hostess (owner) should take a lesson from her incredible waitstaff, as she is neither warm nor attentive nor accommodating. The former hostess was also incredibly accommodating and warm, but, now, the initial greeting is woefully lacking. That said, the food is authentically French ( mussels, onion soup, endive salad, soufflé are scrumptious), and, again, the waitstaff could not be lovelier. The ambiance is warm and comforting. So, we recommend Jubilee for an overall very good experience, especially if you can avoid the hostess.

Possibly the best meal we had during our NYC visit! The service was amazing… the bartender was fabulous! We were there Thanksgiving night and it was packed with people enjoying the evening. We ordered from the price fixed menu. Scallops were delicious the steak was cooked perfectly (so was the salmon). Dessert was a work of art. Do not miss this experience. So worth it!
