The staff and owner David were extremely friendly and we had a great time dining at Jules Bistro. Portion is crazy huge and the price is reasonably. A great steak-frites place with an amazing twist.

Lovely, covered and enclosed back patio. Truly classic French menu. I was so excited to try it. Escargots (appetizer) came in a mini, "personal size" soup tureen in about a cup or more of sauce. There were sliced mushrooms in with the escargots and it was impossible to actually see how many escargot were in the saucy-soup. The sauce was good but there was too much of it and the escargots might as well not have even been there. The main dish however was a GIANT disappointment. Steak-Frites came on a plate that was piled high and over-flowing with salad and a portion of frites. The steak was on top of such a pile of salad that it was hard to cut (not being on a solid surface). I ordered the steak rare. It was medium to well-done and dry. The steak had a rub of some sort on it that was so overpowering and so salty and so thickly encrusted that I could not taste the meat I was eating. It might as well not have been steak. Mt companion barely ate hers. I ended up eating about half of the steak and not sending it back. I don't know why I didn't send it back. Sometimes you don't want to appear to be a pain in the neck. So, when we were ready to get our bill I told the server about our dissatisfaction and she sent the owner over. He scolded us for not immediately sending the dish back. I am a 50+ adult who has had a decent amount of experience eating out. I didn't need his scolding and if I already had a bad taste in my mouth he only made it worse. He sent us over free dessert. My half of the meal was over $100. I felt it was very poor value. My companion and I left, went to another French resto not too far away, and she ordered another meal.

I ordered the prix fixe menu and had the onion soup, streak frites and creme brûlée. I thoroughly enjoyed the food, however my onion soup came without cheese while my dining partner's did. The steak was very tender and cooked perfectly! One issue that arose was that I (a 22 year old) had been dining with my mother who was on holiday and after ordering a glass of wine I was asked for my ID by the manager, which I did not have on me. I showed the manager and 2 different copies of my ID on my phone and he was barely satisfied, while I understand the laws he was very rude about the situation. I could understand a group of young people need identification but a mature diner with an adult? He continued to hover around the table the rest of the night. We had been seated on the patio and it was a nice space, but quite loud and you had to walk through the kitchen to get there. Since I enjoyed the food so much I would definitely go again - but at another location.

Jules Bistro has been one of my favorite French restaurants for years. Food is always on point, servers are friendly and ambiance is relaxed. I usually go to the one on Spadina but thought I would try the patio at the one on Queen. Best idea ever!

Jules Bistro est l'un de mes restaurants français préférés depuis longtemps. La nourriture est toujours délicieuse, les serveurs sont gentils et l'ambiance est détendue. Je vais habituellement à celui sur Spadina mais voulais essayer le patio à celui sur Queen. Excellente idée !

I had a wonderful dinner at Jules Bistro. I was by myself & sat at the bar. Service was excellent. The food superb, a salad and the steelhead, both reasonably priced. I had the prix fixe meal, so also enjoyed a wonderful creme brûlée. I recommend it highly.
