    The food was excellent- from the rolls, salad, steaks,pasta dishes, chicken Marsala - there were no complaints from any of the 9 people at our table. But when you pay prices that seem higher than most Fine Restaraunts in the area(which we don't mind), you deserve to be in a setting that is special. Jules could use a Designer to help with that.

    Tucked back in the Food Lion shopping center, Jules easily is one of the hidden gems on Ocean City. My family dined here on Friday using OpenTable (one of the few OC restaurants that are on here). We were seated immediately and service was excellent. We had a mix of martinis and wine throughout the night -- great wine list. The appetizers (pork belly and fries green tomatoes) were unreal and our entrees put all our other meals that we had that week to shame (we had dined at Liquid Assets and Catch 54). DEFINITELY dine here at least once during your OC vacation; we know we are going to make it an annual staple and we are looking forward to our next meal already!

    We go to Jules whenever we're in Ocean City. It serves food at a consistently high level. On this visit. our service was particularly good as our waiter went out of his way to make sure the food met my needs in terms of not having meat ingredients. He came to our table before our entree was served and told me the rice had chicken stock and that I might want to substitute mashed potatoes. Service like that is greatly appreciated. In addition, the early bird is one of the best deals in Ocean City.

    This was our first trip to Jules and it was great. The food was awesome and the service was great as well. Our water glasses were filled immediately as soon as they were empty and the dishes were removed promptly when we were finished with them. The creme brûlée was to die for. That is my go to dessert and it was the best I have had anywhere. Definitely a must when in OC.

    Half empty restaurant at 830 on a Saturday night in Ocean city, friend ordered salad and 2 appetizers for an entree, scallops were cold and she didn't eat, upon asking for bill our waiter noticed and offered to take off bill. Bill came, still on, he said we would take care of and came out with cold scallops in a to go box, Told us owner said they were fine and you were too slow eating and they got cold, too bad for you. Owner then came out raising voice stating they cost him $20 a pound and what could he do with them now. It was the first and only time I was ever accosted in a restaurant in 40 years! Would recommend never going there! It was so uncomfortable for us and the tables around. PLEASE DO NOT GO TO JULES!!!!!!!

    First time at Jules. Good (not great) food, surprisingly nice atmosphere in a shopping center location, but with questionable service. Our waiter didn't remember all the specials (which we heard other waiters describing to other tables), ignored empty bread baskets and water glasses, and just generally seemed out of it most of the time. I had the lamb and while it was tasty, I was disappointed with the small portion (4 small chops, about 2 bites each.) My wife had the duck, which was quite good and a much better portion as well. Overall, not a bad place and Ocean City certainly needs more fine dining restaurants for my taste, but they just need to tighten up some details...and hire some qualified servers.

    Our night at Jules was outstanding. We had friends in from Philadelphia and wanted to take them to someplace special, it was a great choice. Fried green tomatoes, lamb stew, cream of crab soup for apps. Salads, Filet, chicken Marsala , crab cakes were fantastic, great service and atmosphere. We had a wonderful dining experience. Make reservations, it will be the highlight of your summer.

    I have been to Jules several time over the past few years and have NEVER been disappointed. The changing menu guarantees fresh ingredients and Chef Sander's presentations are great. If you appreciate a quiet environment, taste, texture and wine...this is the place for you. Note: there is not a children's menu.

    Quality if good pretty good (not five stars, though). Service excellent. Prices, however , are truly excessive for a small restaurant IN A STRIP MALL IN OCEAN CITY, MD. The word "gouge" came to mind a couple times when looking at the menu. For 20% less I wouldn't have thought twice. What am I paying for? The view? Nay. Not sure I'll be back, solely because of those price points. Otherwise, I was pleased.

    Jules is a small bistro tucked back into a shopping center near 120th Street. We received a friendly greeting at the front door and were seated immediately. We started with a shared foie gras appetizer special and each had a fish dish - salmon and black drum - followed by a shared creme brulee for dessert. Our food was accompanied by a very nice Sullberg Sonoma County Chardonnay which we had never had before. The food and wine were excellent. Service was pretty good.

    Intimate restaurant with excellent food. One of the few restaurants in Ocean City that rivals the top restaurants in the DC area. While it does not have the scenic water view that many restaurants in this city depend upon for their popularity, Jules more than makes up for that with its carefully chosen menu and wine list. I've had both meat and seafood dishes and both have been equally well prepared. Best to make a reservation if you are dining on a Friday or Saturday.

    My boyfriend and I got engaged on the beach and my future mother-in-law wanted to treat us to dinner. She called and spoke with Charles and had everything set up over the phone from states away. She asked that we be treated to a champagne toast and to charge her credit card for the entire bill. When we arrived, Charles had gone out of his way to make our table special. He purchased a beautiful bouquet of flowers, spead silver heart-shaped confetti on the white tablecloth, and had a bottle of champagne on ice waiting for us when we arrived. He greeted us by name and congratulated us on our engagement. He treated us like royalty and catered to our every need. The food was fantastic and beautifully plated. Wonderfully romantic fine dining!!

    We initially chose Jules to enjoy their Restaurant Week pre fixe three-course menu. I truly enjoyed the almond joy shrimp appy, caesar salad and juicy filet offered on that menu along with a glass of red wine. My friend decided to order ala carte, choosing the braised artichoke appy, caesar salad and an incredible encrusted whole red snapper, which was both large on presentation and flavor. Although this storefront is located within a strip-mall type design, you will be WOWED from the moment you walk through the door until you leave. We highly recommend that both locals and travelers try this gem if you're looking for a great find. eNjOy :-)

    We had heard about Jules Restaurant and thought this was a great time to try it. Our party consisted of two couples. Each of us chose a different menu item. The $30 multi-course meal was a steal, it included a glass of wine. The different seasonings made our normal dinner choices extra special. From the greeting at the door to the presentation of dinner and the constant attention in a quiet setting made for a special evening. This is a place to go if you want to impress or if your simply looking for a great dining experience.

    We have been to Jules many times. It has been about a 4 months since we last went. Charles was our waiter. He greeted us, by name, at the door. He was the best waitstaff that we have experienced at Jules - very professional and friendly in just the right balance. My husband and I enjoyed tomato with crab meat soup and the smoked fish appetizer. The fish is smoked on the premises and the remoulade was as good as any my husband has enjoyed in New Orleans (he is from that foodie city). I had the drunken duck and my husband had the pork loin smothered in rockerfeller sauce. The food was phenomenal. We enjoyed the early bird special so 3 courses was only $30 each.
