Exemplary service matched by delicious food; food that you can watch being made before your eyes while enjoying a soupçon of Pinot Noir. Fantastic flavours and ample portions. I absolutely cannot wait to come back. Merci bien!

Always happy with the level of service and quality of food when we visit. From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left, the hospitality from everyone we encountered was exceptional. That's been a consistent theme whenever I come!

Absolutely fantastic.
A+ service, A+ Food A+ Cocktails! With so many restaurants on Queen West I feel this is a little hidden gem! Everything was exceptional from the moment we arrived. The Steak frites - delicious. the Octopus was cooked so perfectly! The cocktails definitely packed a punch of flavour! This is a must go!

Amazing first time experience at Jules Bistro. The moment we got to the bistro we felt right at home. The owner himself took our jackets for us and that set the tone for the entire evening. Food and service was top notch which made my girlfriends birthday evening one to remember!

Excellent meal. Small space but the noise was level was perfect. Tables are very cozy but it worked. Meal was prompt, tasted amazing and presented well. Wish there was another option instead of fries (we had the Cote de boeuf special on a Tuesday) regardless the fries tasted nice. The service is the best part of the experience. Our waitress was very friendly, visited often and did not hesitate to cater to any need we had. Would go back 100 times.

Lovely gem of a place! The food is good, classic and simple but delicious and nicely prepared. The service was excellent, Anne took great care of us. It is extremely loud in there, so if you are looking for a quiet romantic evening or a place to converse with friends be prepared to get close to be heard. Great find and we will definitely be back!

Seated at the bar, it was a little drafty by the door now that it's winter. They were taking late seatings for dinner which is great for night owls. A little on the pricey side but it shows in the quality of the food... yum! you are sure to get your beef done perfectly! The cote de boeuf is outstanding! The escargots were some of the most tender i have ever had. Also great coffee (even the decaf tasted delicious) & lovely desserts.

Although I had a reservation, I was greeted and treated like they were not prepared and had to find space for us. Was excited to try the fixed menu, but our main course of steak frites was disappointing. Steak was burnt, so politely asked for a new one. Instead of good customer service and apologizing for the mishap, the waitress made unnecessary and odd comments. Our waitress then did not check on us the rest of the night. When paying, the waitress begged that we come back another day because she would not be there. Overall, the place had potential to be nice but the lack of decent customer service and average food left us disappointed.

Stopped by to try during my visit to Toronto from Palm Beach. The food was delicious and the ambiance was warm and friendly. Try the apple tart for desert...The best!! Dave the owner was very pleasant and even gave me a tour of the kitchen and patio. Great find in the revival artsy district.

Good french food, but not perfect. Chèvre Chaud was more a salad than an actual chèvre chaud and the onion soup lacked cheese.

Visited the Queen West location on a cold Tuesday night- the place was bustling at about 8:30pm, but we were still greeted and sat immediately. The Cote de Boeuf is half price on Tuesdays... incredible value for money, the meat was melt- in- your- mouth and the portion was gigantic! The rest of the food was great too, and I was blown away by the fact that there was ONE chef in the kitchen (good for him!)

Servers and support staff were clearly busy- but still friendly and attentive. We ended up meeting both owners as well, as they took the time to introduce themselves and check in on us after our meal. Lovely touch, and very much appreciated. As someone who has been in the service industry for close to 10 years, I can say that this place truly nails Hospitality.

My sister and I ordered the pre-fixe menu. We shared a shrimp & scallop appetizer, the cote de boeuf platter and tarte tatin. We enjoyed our meal and found it delicious and the portions very generous. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. The restaurant has a very cozy and vibrant atmosphere.

Food is always excellent and it's a great atmosphere. They handled our party of six seamlessly, even though we arrived a different times. Servers have been excellent every time I've eaten here. Appreciated being asked what wine we liked and steered us toward the best choices. Escargot sauce was decadent! Lamb was tasty and prepared perfectly and the herb rub was delicious.
