Nice enough, but not what the old Jubilee was. Both the Chicken Coq au Vin and the Dover Sole were poor and uninspired. These are must-do-right dishes for a place like this. A shame.

Jubilee is an anachronism - a neighborhood gem with excellent food and service. On Sundays & Mondays they even offer the pre-theater Prix Fixe menu until closing which is a real bargain. If you like mussels, I'm not sure there's a better place in New York. All in all, one of my favorites.

Great fish soup and rack of lamb. The mussels with fries are always a favorite. Nice wine list.
Very efficient service (even when one of our guests spilled his glass of wine).
So glad Jubilee is in my neighborhood.

Jubilee was recommended by a friend and it did not disappoint. Very wonderful French food, a mixture of classic dishes and newer interpretations.
Service was extremely attentive but not hovering.
The ambiance of the restaurant is not over stated and very conducive to pleasant dining and conversation.
Eating at Jubilee is not just a a meal, it is an overall experience.

 (Philadelphia)·Dined on November 17, 2017

I only gave 3 stars for food because it was ordinary food at upscale prices. An "heirloom" tomato salad was our first course. The dressing was well balanced, there was feta, and the tomatoes were delicious but ordinary, not heirloom. For our entrées we both got rack of lamb with potato au gratin and a grilled tomato. The lamb was done as requested and served with a dark gravy, the potatoes were bland and the tomato had green stuff on top. There was nothing interesting nor exceptional about the flavors. With that, it was easy not to order from the (also) boring dessert menu.

Jubliee is a high quality neighborhood restaurant for the Beekman/Sutton neighborhood, but it is also a great destination dining option for folks who want high quality French bistro food with a mix of other western cuisines. Great wine list, great oyster bar and mussels, and excellent fish and meat options--all prepared with balanced seasonings. Service is top notch and the environment is cozy and sophisticated --like the neighborhood. Brunch is a great value as is pre-theatre menu.

Jubilee never disappoints. Their food is authentic with incredible mussels, fries and traditional French dishes. Save room for the profiteroles. Their specials are also outstanding and their wine list is solid and fairly priced.

The atmosphere and service are excellent, as well.

This is a pricey place I have visited over 6 times a year for three or four years. Iasked for a quiet table. There was no such thing.It was dreadfully noisy.

We take people there for mussels and frites or salad. That's the specialty. Other fish dishes are evry good but the meats are rather sad and so are the pasta dihes.

Jubilee offers solid bistro standards, including mussels, soupe de poisson, and steak frites, all prepared well and served relatively quickly. The service is straightforward, although it sometimes seems that a large number of staff come and go throughout the meal. The cocktails are unremarkable. Overall, a pleasant place to dine casually.

We always love having dinner here. We bring our friends - those who have never been here before are so happy that they came. The mussels are amazing, but besides the mussels we have had many other favorites. Service is excellent and friendly - this is our neighborhood staple. It's a wonderful restaurant and I highly recommend.
