My Mom, sister & I dined at Jules Bistro before seeing War Horse at the Princess of Wales Theater. The location was great; 15 min walk from the subway station and a 5 min walk to the theater. It is a small restaurant with eclectic charm and an open kitchen.
The food value was great; $17 for a huge plate of fries, ratatouille, salad, and grilled steak or chicken. No need to get the prix fixe menu because of the quantity of food served with each dinner. The quality was good; excellent fries and awesome ratatouille but basic green salad from a box with a simple dressing which was a bit bitter and flank steak which was nicely seasoned but very chewy; (should have been marinated). I would recommend the chicken for this reason which was seasoned with herbs de province. Two of us shared the "lemon tart for two" which was the best lemon tart I'd ever had; disappointed by the small portion though.
Service was not great considering the restaurant was almost empty. We had to ask for water refills and when we ordered the "Jules" coffee off the menu the waiter and waitress didn't know what it was and asked if we knew how to make it! I tried twice to make a reservation through their website but noone bothered to reply. The bathroom was grungy; glad we ate first.
Overall, this restaurant could be great with minor tweaks to service and food. I'd give it another shot if I was in the area.
