The staff just couldn’t be nicer and dinner was fantastic. We had the prixe fix meal which is available all night on Sunday. The steak and frites just melt in your mouth. Mussels are always a win here. Very nice decor. A favorite in our neighborhood.

We continue to revisit this nice but dated French restaurant. Our table was located in a back corner. Cramped and warm. Other than that disappointing location we enjoyed the excellent food. My wife dad Dover sole and I had the special catch a nice breaded cod. Nice selection of wines.

As usual, Jubilee hit on all marks. The staff is world
class and the food follows that same distinction.

Soup de Jour was split pea - a favorite of mine so the Escargot which I thought I would be ordering will wait until next time. And I enjoyed another favorite - Steak Tartar. Profiteroles for dessert topped off a terrific evening.

Really enjoyed a great dinner highlighted by the best soft shell crabs I have had in a long long time. Cannot say enough about them. Also enjoyed the foie gras and the grand mariner souffle. Very highly recommended.

In addition to the great food service was also excellent

Everything was most agreeable; the cuisine, the service, the ambience. The quail lollipop (Don't be missled by the cutesy name.) is an inspired creation. Our waiter, Moh, was friendly, courteous and helpful with menu choices and wine selections. Nous attendons notre retour a Jubilee avec impatience.

Always delicious French food at this Sutton Place local. The onion soup is usually outstanding. Almost as good as Julia Child’s recipe. The steak with bearnaise sauce is cooked to perfection, as are the terrific French fries. The duck is great. It’s served already sliced with a deep rich wine sauce. Yum. A very nice wine list temps, though many bottles are rather pricey. Go. Enjoy. Bon appetit.

Jubilee is a local restaurant. Staff know many of the patrons and the bar is often full of regulars. Excellent wait staff, charming ambiance, good bar atmosphere. Dover sole was excellent, as were the mussels (many varieties) and the chocolate souffle was also very good. A “go to” whenever I am in NYC. Clientele seems to be 40 and above.

We eat at Jubilee quite often. This time the soft shell crabs missed the mark. The new shell seems to have already started regrowing and we wound up having to spit out the bits that were too crunchy. The scallops, as always, were amazing. So was the corn soup and the snails. The waiter was attentive but not intrusive. The hostess was, as usual, a bit insincere. But, we will keep going, because in 5 years, this was the first miss with the food which has always been spot on and perfect.

We love Jubilee overall. Great menu, atmosphere, service. This time I want to mention a couple things. first the Gazpacho really is superb. I make my own and my husband loves it. It is rare for him to like one at a restaurant as well OR BETTER than mine. but it is truly grand.

Second, we decided to share the Dover sole Menuiere. We usually do share things, and the $58 price encouraged it. We have a special fondness for this dish as our teen age son fell in love with fish when he ordered this dish at a small restaurant on the Normandy coast! Anyway, yours was heavenly. Compliments to the chefs on both foods. We really enjoy all that we order. The grilled octupus, the tomato salad, and of course the various Moule! We live in Texas so don't get up that often, but next trip--we will be back!
