“WOW!!!”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Our family was in Madison for the funeral of my father-in-law, and Crystal and Jules catered the family gathering at their restaurant following the services. WOW!!! We had dined here while in Madison for our annual family reunion back in June 2012 and it was excellent, but to do such a fabulous job for this group of approximately 50 people was extraordinary. The finger foods were excellent, the servers were very attentive and the bartender was the best! This is a gem of a restaurant in Madison, the Chef/Owner is very personable and mingled with the group to be sure that they were pleased and taken care of. Whenever in Madison, don't miss this chance to be wined and dined in style.

“Worth the drive”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Down from Indy for a few days and happened across this place for dinner tonight. The New York Strip steak was unbelievable. The squash was cooked to perfection and the service was excellent. Highly recommend this place to anyone that is interested in fine dining at a very reasonable price.

“The "Jewel" of Madison”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

We were looking for a nice dinner for 3 couples. Past experience told us there wasn't much to offer in Madison. We were pleasantly suprised with Crystal and Jules. We had prime rib,pasta,and tilapia. All were excellent. Andy, the chef and owner, was more than accommodating. We had a vegetarian in our party and he told her he could fix whatever she requested. The prices were very reasonable considering the quality. Andy came out and talked with us and was open to suggestions.....which we had very few. Our server, Jacqueline, was also very attentive to our needs. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. It topped off a nice trip to Madison.

“Wonderful dinner”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

We went to Crystal & Jules after the holiday home tour last weekend and enjoyed it very much. The restaurant has a contemporary upscale feel and a varied menu. The server was friendly and attentive. The prices are reasonable for the quality and it was nice to have a glass of house wine for only $5. My only complaint is that we had a table near the kitchen door and after awhile, all the congestioin and activity in the area got to be distracting and detracted from the ambiance.

Thank you for your great review. We are glad you enjoyed everything. With such a small restaurant we have to take advantage of every seating space we have to stay in business. Again thank you and we hope to see you soon.

“Perfect Reception”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Last month, we hosted our wedding reception at Crystal & Jules and it was a truly wonderful event. Crystal & Jules not only opened up for us on an off day, but they accomodated us in every way possible way (no detail was too small) to make sure we had the best possible experience. The food, service and atmosphere were perfect. I would highly recommend Crystal & Jules for any event.
