Good french food, I visit the riviera often, and this is as pretty darn close, however, I believe that Bistro Vendome on 58th is just a little bit better in every respect. Will come back.

We had been given a gift certificate and were interested in trying the mussels. They were very good We recommend the choice of three different ones which enables you to sample a variety. When you get three different kinds they come in a set of three cups with the shells removed. We enjoyed them all. We both ordered the foie gras, one on the regular menu and one a special. We preferred the one on the regular menu as the waiter recommended. He also made excellent wine selections. We did not go early but they have a special prix fixe before 6:30pm which is also available all day on Sunday and Monday. I had the soufflé. It was good but I've had better. Stick with the mussels and the foie gras.

I really wanted to like Jubilee as it’s a neighborhood spot and have heard good things. The service was a bit slow but to be fair they were busy. Not much warmth or attentiveness from the staff overall starting with the host who hustled us to our table.

My steak tartare was fine, nothing to write home about. Wish it was a bit more spiced and less finely ground. My husband’s ribeye steak, although prepared medium rare was very stringy. Jubilee is not bad, but unfortunately nothing makes it stand out. It will sadly not become our go to local French spot.

I've lived nearby for many years and was a great fan of the former location on 54th for many reasons - the food, the setting, the service and overall ambiance. The "new" location, not so much. The warm feeling, with the exception of the tables in the bar room, are totally misconceived and disjointed. There is a long narrow room which makes you feel that you are at a bus stop. The larger back room is way too bright and dominated by over scale hounds tooth upholstery.
However, there is good news! Their mussels are marvelous and worth a visit if that's your thing. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED is the brunch menu. At $30.50 which includes 3 Mimosas or 3 Bloody Mary's, a delicious salad or a nice slab of liver pate and a choice of over 10 entrees.
I can't recommend it for dinner, except the mussels, but the brunch is a great deal..

The space is indeed larger and the food is excellent. But the decor is a little tired and stuffy. Otherwise, the larger space is a vast improvement over the old location.

I love the food and service at Jubilee, the only reason it didn't get a perfect rating is that the service is just a little slow. For a business lunch it took 1 1/2 hours to finish and it won't always be convenient to get away for a lunch that will last longer than the hour allotted by the office.

We have been going to Jubilee for years when visiting NYC. This is our first visit to their new location. It corrected the only deficiencies in the original location. It is much quieter and thus easier to talk and the tables are separated sufficiently so that you are not part of the neighboring table's discussion. Food was great! And ,service outstanding.

Had a 730 reservation for 2 on a Sunday night which I made the evening before. I tried to change it the day of to three but they weren’t accommodating at all. They told me they could seat me an hour later to change but i couldn’t do it. Then 5 minutes before, they told me they could do a half hour before... again not good for us. Then we ended up waiting a while for our table. I live in the neighborhood and like the food a lot but would think twice about choosing them as far as their lack of flexibility.. it was only a one person change.
