“Comfortable, Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Food was fine, and the bistro has a nice roomy feel. Service was good. We had two apps and shared an entree. One of the apps was very good and the rest just ordinary. Cool bathroom! Has a hipster feel like the old Leo's in Providence.

“Funky on Federal Hill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Great place for breakfast/brunch. Eclectic decor, neighborhood eatery and bar. The food is excellent and creative. Very fresh and tasty. Worth a visit when you're in town and want a breakfast that's not available in every little shop.
Very generous portions!
We'll be back!

“Amazing Beer Dinner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

We were in town for a Lovecraft convention, and decided to stay an extra day just to go to the NecrinomiCon beer dinner at Julian's. I'm so glad we did! The food was creative and fun while still being accessible and non-pretentious, and the beer pairings (plus a cocktail and a whiskey) were outstanding. Very friendly crowd as well. We wanted to go back for brunch the next day on the way out of town, but sadly didn't rouse ourselves in time.

“Serious competition for Nick's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We once again (fourth try) could not get into Nick's for breakfast - just a few blocks away - as a 1-hour wait was not going to happen.

We had read good reviews on Julian's - we concur.

Friendly and fast service in spite of a huge crowd. We waited maybe 10 minutes and had a sidewalk table. The inside would best be described as "eclectic".

We had juice and coffee, scrambled egg pizza, an omelette, and eggs with outstanding hash. Hot, tasty, and large portions. We will be back.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Food this interesting is often accompanied by a side order of "Aren't you lucky we're letting you be a customer tonight," but this is creativity without the pretension. A deconstructed corned beef and cabbage, battered cod with a tart kohlrabi slaw, and some innovative house-made ice creams (no, pb&j is not the same as jelly and peanut butter) made for a memorable meal. A nice selection of wines by the glass and lots of craft brews too.
