We have eaten here before and thought it much better than this time - could have just been an off-night; or our choices. Our server was great, knowledgeable and attentive. We had the poppyseed noodles, which were very heavy and overshadowed the accompanying flavors. The shrimp cocktail was very good, ($11) the smoked tofu a nice presentation with little cubes... More

A friend from work recommended Joule's so my wife and I decided to give it a shot on our regularly scheduled "date night". Upon walking into the place I knew I was going to love it. The open concept allows the guest to watch as food is prepared. We were seated at the cooking bar, which was what we prefer.... More

We had a party of 17 going there after Seahawks / Niners game and our host pre-ordered the menu. The delivery, taste and service were fantastic. My favorites were the appetizers and the grilled octopus. I have searched world wide for octopus dishes and this was one of the top 5% of my findings. Moist, tasting and not soggy. Definitely...

We ate "other than steak" and found interesting combinations, visually exciting and rewarding in taste. We came when they opened for dinner and were able to get a table without a reservation, but I'd advise a reservation at any other time. Next time I'm in Seattle I'd definitely return here.

We decided to visit Joule on a really wet day and sat in the bar. We live near enough to have walked and were soaking wet when we crawled up onto the bar stools. The fire outside made it feel cozy just to see. We sampled a variety of things and shared. Everything was amazing and beautiful! We had steak... More

We went to this place based on Tripadvisor reviews. For brunch there is a little buffet style table that you can get food from before you have your main. (included amazing brazillian food) Then the main dish is huge and keeps you going all day long!

Recommended by a local I met the night before, she was spot-on! Sat at the counter (by choice) and was able to watch the 4 chefs "killin' it! The attention to detail in cooking was amazing. Octopus a must. Can't wait to return to eat my way through the menu. Also, service was a 10...

The food is good especially the octopus, "that" steak and the white stuffed kimchi. I just wish there were some carbs to go with some of the food not just the protein. I had the black cod which is I guess their version of the Korean classic "eun daegu jorim", it was great but probably lasted all of 5 semi-mouthfuls.... More

I cannot describe how great this place was. They recommended to share plates, about 2/person. It was extremely difficult to see this place but it and Whale Wins share an entrance. The only sign is a small one that I didn't notice until we had walked up. The staff were super great. We had Jamie who knew when to check... More
