“ALWAYS reliably good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2012

From the ,moment you are greeted by Michael ( and if the chef owner is not too busy in the kitchen) to discussing wine with "Jules" the owner's son and fabulous warm and attentive service by "Ria" - you cannot go wrong in this classic bistro-- do not let the "French" aspect frighten you. These people know and love food and wine and the interaction that comes with it- there is also a small private diving room. If you enjoy intimate and casual aspects to dining- this is your spot!! Food realistically priced.

“Great food with a comfortable, casual atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2011

10 of us were here for my husband's staff Christmas party. I was a bit apprehensive about the service after reading some of the reviews but we were pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome, great food and good service. Diners in our group loved the lamb, the beef with bordelaise sauce, and the chicken with couscous. There was a good selection of wine
and the desserts, although not outstanding, were good. I'd come back.

“Great brunch with friends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2011

From the time we were welcomed, to the cheery farewell by all the wait staff, the experience was memorable. Jules was our waiter and was charming and attentive. Nice menu, typically French bistro and very reasonable. The china coffee cups and saucers are a nice touch, as are the unique teapots. All eight of us in our group enjoyed our menu selections, with the creme brulee getting rave reviews.

“Consistantly Good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2011

I have been to Jules many times and the food and service have been consistently good. Usually have the salad Steak frites and the chocolate terrine that comes with the dinner special. So delicious and a great value for a 3 course meal. Have often been served by the Manager himself and have had exceptional service. He has a unique personality its true...but we love his sense of humor! Great atmosphere as well
