We had heard this place was a must and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. The staff was all very knowledgeable and on top of things. The place is small and intimate and the open kitchen allows you to see what is going on. The food was amazing and cooked perfectly. Try the trout and the... More

Due to the chef's reputation, we hoped for excellent food. Three were in our party. We each ordered different dishes from the top recommended ones. The brussels sprouts, I was told, were cooked very deliciously. The other starters and entrees were mediocre, low nutritional value, and high priced. The service was great and the atmosphere was fine.

My wife and I stop for the night in Kansas City when traveling from home in St. Louis to see her family in rural Kansas. Julian is our go-to restaurant for the stop-over. Third visit this week. The people are delightful, the room soothing and the food always exceptional. Chef Celina Tio makes creative cuisine affordably priced. We'll be back.

This is a fantastic little restaurant in Kansas City. I had the scallops and my wife had the crispy pork shoulder. My wife's dish was out of this world good. Chef Tio was on hand and made sure we were well taken care of. The service here was fantastic. The food was fantastic. I can't wait to go back.

My wife and I had dinner here recently and I was thrilled that they had the crispy pork shoulder square thing on the menu as a special. I may not know the exact name of the item but it goes back to when they first opened and I’ve always ordered it when available. My wife had the braised beef and... More

I was so excited to eat at Julian since Chef Tio created one of the most memorable meals of my life while at her stint at The American. Now, I knew this was not meant to be the same type of experience, but I was still excited to see her take on more casual fare. The restaurant is quaint, with... More

We absolutely love Julian! After half a dozen visits, we have consistently gotten great meals as well remarkably friendly service in a comfortable atmosphere. The food is amazing, the drinks top notch and you can come in your street clothes without feeling like anyone is looking down at you.

If you don't think you can afford fabulous food you need to eat at Julian in Brookside, Missouri. The chef is personable and accommodating. Try the Sunday night "special." You choose three or four courses and she cooks you a wonderful meal based on foods in season. I have never been disappointed. Also, sometimes I am hesitant to ask a... More

Almost worth 5 stars. Almost. First heard of this restaurant through some of Chef Celina Tio's appearances on TV, and decided to try it on our trip through Kansas City last year. Imagine our surprise when this celebrity chef was seating customers! (Also sweeping the floor, washing dishes, . . .) Ate there twice on that one trip--both times were... More
