Seated right away when we arrived. We reserved a table as opposed to bar seating and had a great table for 2 near the bar. David the owner came over to take our coats to hang up. Server was super attentive and David suggested a great wine for us. We had scallops and escargot to start and steak frites and beef tenderloin as our entrees. Food, service and ambiance was great.

Great value on a Tuesday night...can't beat the deal...however with the deal and the crowd don't expect the best service....very hard to get the waiters attention... maybe waiting a little longer than you would expect to get what you need.......

I love French food. I used to live in France and know what good French food tastes like. I was craving some good French food for my birthday dinner this past Sunday so I carefully scanned the menus of several well-known French restaurants in Toronto and looked at reviews and decided to give Jules Bistro a try. I was looking forward to typical, tasty French bistro food. That's not what I got at Jules Bistro. I started with classic French onion soup. It was mostly broth, light on the onions and had 3 large croutons with a little bit of gruyere on top. The worst part however, was that it was bland. It had no flavour. Three of us had the soup and we all felt the same way about it. My sister had the chevre chaud salad. Again, we've had this classic dish many times. The vinaigrette on the bed of salad seemed to be just some oil, no vinegar or herbs. Very bland. As for the chevre. It was a light smear on a slice of toasted baguette. You can barely call this a salade au chevre chaud. Then came the main courses. I chose the tuna tartare. It was bland with the same bland salad and frites that looked and tasted alarmingly similar to McDonald's fries. I expected hand cut delicious French frites. My daughter had the steak tartare. Bland as well with the same bland salad and McDonalds fries. The others in my group had the steak and veal chop. You guessed it - all bland with the same bland salad and McDonalds fries. Sending the food back would have not solved the problem. We probably would have been given a bottle of some sort of condiment or they would have put more salt on each dish. Plus, we were hungry so we ate it, bland as it was. The desserts were flavourful (finally!), but the portions were not generous. Toronto is a world class city now and Torontonians have an array of dining choices not easily matched. So why does anyone think we can't handle an authentic French bistro experience or that we want bland food? Needless to say, they won't be seeing me again!

Lived in France for 5 years and can say this place has a genuine French 'vibe'. Food excellent, ambience excellent. Service friendly and spot-on (help discreetly available when needed, no excessive 'pestering' when not). Was our first visit and our high expectations were met. Won't be the last time either. Jules Rules.

The restaurant is lovely. The atmosphere is warm and comfortable. Unfortunately, I was disappointed with my meal. The fish was cooked poorly. The accompanying greens were not interesting and reminded me of a salad mix available at any grocery store.
