Holy cow this place was great!! We sat inside so we could watch the chefs in the open kitchen which was fun to watch. Our waitress was really knowledgeable and helpful and took her time talking with us and never seemed to need to rush away.

My boyfriend I got different things off the preset menu so we could try it all!! We agreed the following were the best of what we tried: 1) lamb tartare vs. leek 2) veal sweetbread vs. beets (but beets were also great) 3) both the ricotta dumplings and duck were fantastic 4) both the mango and the praline were great! Different flavors though!

Overall we were blown away by the food and loved our experience!! Was a great date night :)

I've previously visited Jeune et Jolie for the a la carte bar menu and was always impressed. This was my first opportunity to try the regular tasting menu, and I was just "wowed" from start to finish. Everything about the flavorful ingredients signaled the highest quality and freshness. The preparation and plating were flawless, demonstrating exceptional culinary skill. The beverage program is well curated to compliment the cuisine. Service was friendly, attentive and knowledgable. I highly recommend Jeune et Jolie and look forward to returning as soon as possible.

Due to COVID, we received a call the day before our reservation telling us the restaurant was short on staff and would only be offering a set menu. We decided to keep our reservation and were very glad we did. Everything was truly outstanding, from the amuse bouche to the bread course (an amazing croissant-like roll) to the mignardise that arrived with the check. That Michelin star is well deserved!

i would like to see a greater variety of seafood even if a supplement is charged. for example, Dungeness crab, king crab, lobster, dover sole or turbot. Monkfish is for Poseidon or Jacks.

A lovely meal. Truly thoughtful food with nuanced flavors. Beautiful on the eyes as well as the palette. Did the four course and we chose different things each course to share and get a broader sense of the menu. Did not disappoint. Servers were everywhere and nowhere. A good mix of attentiveness and privacy. Definitely will return again.

We have lived in N. County San Diego for 26 years, and have often bemoaned the lack of excellent fine dining restaurants in San Diego County. Never mind Tokyo, London, or Rome, where we have lived, the San Diego dining scene is still a pale reflection of NYC, SF, LA, or even much smaller Portland. It’s improved over the years, but still not great. Some good restaurants like Juniper and Ivy downtown or Paon in Carlsbad, but still no great one. Until last night. We went there for my birthday and the food was excellent. The main dishes were much better than Paon and much more creative than Juniper and Ivy. The outdoor large space with space heaters and fireplace made for very pleasant dining experience too. The large wait staff was very attentive, almost too much so as they have the unfortunate American waiter tendency to come to the table too frequently and interrupt conversation. But that is the fault of the way they are trained, not the hard working and very nice staff. This is definitely the best fine dining restaurant in the County. It has a fixed 4 course menu that changes with the seasons (as all good restaurants should), and is $95 without drinks. That may be expensive for some, but trust us, a comparable meal in NYC or London would cost you twice as much.

Overall this was a VERY disappointing experience. From the reviews we expected a great dining experience, but that did not happen. The food was just pretentious. The flavors were not exciting and the portions, especially of the main ingredients, were very small. The monkfish that was served couldn't have been more than a two to three oz serving and the duck breast was tough and had no real flavor. I don't know what they did to extract the natural juiciness and flavor I expect from a duck breast, but I was served a small dry, chewy tasteless slab of meat that I assume was actually duck as advertised. Probably the worst serving of duck I've ever had. Wine steward was overworked and slow. He forgot our order and we waited 15 minutes to start on our first course until he finally arrived with the wine. Nothing memorable about the evening except for the enormous bill for extremely overpriced small bits of mediocre food. The wine list is also way overpriced with no affordable choices

Incredible. Everything was perfect. Cozy, but energized ambiance. Excellent, attentive service. Cocktails were well done, and all the food we ordered was creative and well executed. And all of the servers made my birthday feel really special! This is a meal to savor and luxuriate over. Will definitely be back.

We have been to Juene & Jolie numerous times and fine it always exceptional in every way. We tried many new dishes for us: lamb tartare, veal sweetbreads & lionfish as well as past favorites or more known dishes - duck, pumpkin soup, crudo amberjack, and the desserts and everything was magnificent.. And, we appreciate being able to dine outside safely in a lovely area. We went as our first date night of the year and it accomplished for us what we hoped: feeling that spark of deep love and attraction! Thank you all at Juene et Jolie.

Drove an hour fr OC for date night w hubby. And wow, what a great date-night restaurant! Even though the temps were a cool 50s, the heat lamps kept us warm we each adored our selections. The staff were pleasant & helpful. Plenty of street parking for early diners in a cute part of Carlsbad. Dressing warm in sweaters, there’s no need for coats. Price for two w tax & tip was $350+. Staff wore masks, as did diners as they entered. This would be on our regular rotation if closer to home. Highly recommend.

We had a lovely evening and look forward to returning. I gave a low “value” mark only because I don’t think that question is relevant to a high end dining experience like Jeune and Jolie provides.

Superb menu selections for each of four courses. Waitstaff very attentive and proper in their service. Waitstaff was too stiff and scripted in their descriptions of the food at the time of each presentation.

Wine list has excellent choices. However, the wine list did lack any selection of port as a digestif. Quite surprising.

There's nothing more to say than it was the best meal of our lives. The chef de cuisine seems to have a "cuisine minceur" approach to his dishes in that everything was absolutely fresh with clean flavors absent heavy sauces. Where butter was obvious was in the brioche roll served with some heavenly butter compound mid meal. It was as I remember pastry in France - essentially the freshest butter held together by the smallest amount of flour possible. Listening to the sommelier was like being serenaded by a poet of wine; his choices were as spectacular as they were unique. Probably the best dish of the night was the lamb tartar - I never knew lamb could be that delicious. Thanks for a wonderful evening, we'll be back with family and friends.

some of the most creative and tasty food we’ve had ANYWHERE! will come back if we can get in! hostess was accommodating and gracious, ambience is cute. the only downside was the person assisting our waitress ( who was TERRIFIC) her assistant forgot to bring the ice i requested, told me “i don’t think so” when asked if the restaurant had any chopsticks (would have been better to say “let me check”) , and told me the restaurant didnt have any decaf.
i’d suggest you carry both decaf and chopsticks for a menu with a decidedly asian influence.
