Long time neighborhood establishment and my first visit in a few years. I had the foie gras, green salad and provencal mussels. Could not fault the food and service was professional, friendly and attentive. I was a solo diner and my waiter made sure I did not order too much even though I was tempted. I had the Napolean for dessert and it was fine, but not as noteworthy as the rest of the meal. Great mussels.

It’s a classic French brassiere. Good food. No fusion. If you like basic French food, this is the place! We will go again soon.

Surly server...she came to the table as if she did not want to be there; she didn't smile nor greet us in a cheerful manner when she came to the table, and when asked after waiting for 30 minutes for our entree she shrugged and said "well, it can't be helped". Restaurant smelled like cats inhabit the place when it's closed. My request for a medium pork dish came very well done and chewy. This dining experience was too expensive to be served by an impolite server and an over cooked meal...I could have gone to a less costly restaurant with considerably better service.

GO TO DEUX AMIS (right around the corner) for great service and delicious entrees.

Chef Luc did it again! The Bouillabaisse was great, offered an array of tasty fishes and the croutons with the rouille a must! Thank you. We also enjoyed the Souffle, extremely light and a nice touch to end your meal. As always the service was very attentive and prompt. Thank you.

Wonderful - just wonderful. Perhaps the most charming, classic French restaurant in NYC. Lovely seating both indoors and outdoors. The scallops with orzo pasta was amazing. And the profiteroles were fantastic. The service was excellent and the prices most reasonable. Definitely worth traveling to, even if you don't live in the neighborhood.

Ate outdoors. Street noise notwithstanding, certainly pleasant! Food and wine great, as usual, and a service back-up resulted in a free glass of wine. Restaurant aims to please, and does so all the time.

Sat outside in enclosed private area that was much nicer than the outside seating last summer.
Food as always was excellent as was the wait staff.
Highly recommend, especially the soufflé!

This has been a regular place for years. I made reservations ahead and said it was a special night. We get there and the host looked so annoyed and bothered. Got the owner to give us a nice corner seat and had to be subjected to at least 15 mins of a patron standing up talking loudly (in French) to seated diners and the sound reverberated. The waitress was nervous to say anything. The chef Luke Is wonderful. His food always beautifully prepared and delicious

My guest was not impressed with the atmosphere.

The food from Chef Luc, a member of the prestigious « maîtres cuisiniers de France » is excellent. No matter what you order, you can’t go wrong. The staff is friendly and efficient. It’s ideal both for a romantic dinner or a quiet business dinner. I highly recommend Jubilee.

Went with a little trepidation since first time out in the pandemic. Restaurant was really prepped for this: plastic but unobtrusive barriers between tables, staff masked, choice of real menu or downloaded link.
Food was very good and wine by the glass fine and reasonable. will definitely be back.

What a lovely dinner we had at Jubilee! The outdoor tables are comfortable and the service was terrific, but both were out shined by the food. Salads, soup. And mushroom ravioli were very good. The mussels were the best I have ever had and we love mussels. We tried Jubilee on the recommendation of a friend, and we will be back!
