    We opted for the dining menu and expected to have smaller portions... we were wrong. The French Onion Soup was amazing and cooked to perfection. The risotto was piping hot with scallops that melted in your mouth. The duck was cooked beautifully with potatoes that added to its richness. The beef didn't need to be chewed. I had never dined here before and I cannot get over the value for the high quality of food at Jules. Will dine here again.

    We sat outside on the patio which was unfortunately across the street from a huge pile of building debris. Not the restaurant’s fault, but indoor dining might have been more enjoyable as the pile had a bad odor. The lobster bisque and French onion soup were both delicious. Mussels were good, not great. Broth needed more garlic & more flavor in general. Niçoise salad was very good!

    My husband and I had superb service from Ben, and the food, service and wine were all fantastic. Love the local offerings of British Columbia wine, thoughtfully selected. A great patio as well for those wonderful Summer days in Vancouver. Cannot wait to return again soon.

    Once again, a little oasis of heaven in the middle of bustling Gastown. Perfect lunch food, light and tasty but still very filling, great atmosphere, very little noise (if any) and accurate service. You cannot not love this place.

    4 of us had a great meal in a semi formal atmosphere. Even with a full house, the restaurant wasn’t too noisy to have a decent conversation at our table. Friendly, prompt service, with a menu that isn’t too extensive or overwhelming, especially to those who aren’t fluent in French, or French cuisine. The onion soup, duck confit and crème caramel were all delicious! We will definitely return to Jules !

    Fantastic atmosphere for dinner. There is a lovely ambiance without the overpowering background music that many of the vancouver chain restaurants seem to feel is needed to create atmosphere. Food was very tasty and the server was a total joy. Definitely going back again!

    Truth be told, I thought I was going to a different French restaurant in Gas town, but this has now become my favorite in Vancouver. Simple and delicious. You can smell the butter and garlic when you walk in the door signaling escargot done right. We did the tasting menu and it was delicious at every course and reasonably priced. We will be back.

    Relaxed, delicious, service casual but well appointed (thank you Elodie), making you feel right at home, in Paris! Amazing ambience, so comfortable, and staff had a gentle casual sense of humour, and had amazing recommendations of food and wine! The duck confit was perfection, the escargots garlicky delicious, the special of the evening lobster bisque to ‘live for’, and the 2 oz Hendricks martinis were bang on! What a way to spend an age forgetting birthday dinner! And great spot in Gastown!

    First visit. Will to be our last. Everything was perfect. Great food and drink. French onion soup a particular favourite. The duck is much commented on for good reason. The prix fixe excellent value, though quite a lot of food for a European appetite! Could have ordered everything on the very authentic French bistro menu.

    We went twice this week during our visit to Vancouver as my husband proclaimed the best duck confit he’s ever eaten. I had the sole last night and it was definitely the best prepared sole ever. Ginormous kudos to the chefs!!!!
