When I walked in I felt welcome right away with all the greetings. The food was excellent and the atmosphere is perfect for a fine dining! We also had great service with our server Mady and we will definitely be coming back!

Not only was the food fabulous (my girlfriend and I had lunch) but I could plug my Ford Focus Electric while I ate. The energy was fabulous on ALL levels. The food. The service. The company. And my car being juiced up. Thank you Hotel Julien. Great service all round.

Menu offers small to large meal options, and the chefs special soup was fabulous. Quality, preparation and service were tops, and seating allows private conversation. One of Dubuque's top fine dining locations, with old... More

Service was poor, my meal was 10 minutes later than the rest of table. Food is average at best. Drink service was poor also.

I came in for dinner last week. The food was good. Ashley was my server and she was wonderful. She was polite, prompt and made my dining experience memorable.
