    Took the husband here for his first Juliette experience. Food was delicious and the service was spectacular. Most notable were the hangar steak and the salted caramel pot de creme dessert. The charcuterie plate was awesome as well. We'll be back soon to try more on the menu!

    Overall good dining experience. The food was good but portions are small so prepare to order quite a lot to be satisfied. Overall bill adds up quick. They now have a nice outdoor space. Because it has more tables now, the place feels empty so the ambiance is not as good.

    Upon first perusing the menu, we were tempted to leave. It's complicated and if you're not a meat/pork eater you'll be challenged finding something order. We persevered. The starter plate of matsutaki mushrooms were perfectly cooked and seasoned; the grilled squid equally delightful (though a couple more pieces of squid would have made it more so). Our main courses of duck breast and striped bass were equally tasteful. The menu changes with the seasons. The wine list is well represented by an assortment of varietals though wines by the glass seem unduly overpriced. The specialty cocktail list succumbs to the current trend of multiple, esoteric ingredients that don't contribute to the essence of the cocktail--a worrying trend!

    We had an excellent experience at Juliette. First time visit. Very impressed. Four of us shared about 6 dishes. All of them were outstanding. Duck. Pork cheek. Squid. Burger. Meat and cheese plate. Funny location for a upscale restaurant. Strip mall. But much better than going to the mall or dealing with PCH/CDM parking. Try it!

    $$ Been wanting to try this place for a while; hands down the best place I have eaten at in Newport Beach in AGES. Dined inside for lunch with a friend - service was attentive and thoughtful; food service was prompt and professional. Limited lunch items but was not disappointed - we shared the faro risotto with squash and pecorino and the Hanger steak with corn and roasted tomatoes. The portions were complete and the food was spot on - from flavor, seasoning, and temperature. The risotto was light and actually complemented well with the hangar steak, through they were two different dishes. Also had the fries, and the only thing I didn't like were the two sauces - one aioli just tasted like whipped egg yolk and oil. Will definitely go back.

    Sizing plates is a novel approach, takes a little getting used to. there were 6 of us at a rectangular table which made sharing a little more awkward. Food was good and server was knowledgable about the offerings. Curious that, in addition to the new sharing concept, no known brands of liquor are available. I think this restaurant needs getting used to. Trick is getting clients to come back for a second try.

    The food at Juliette is exquisite: delicious, inventive, and beautifully plated. The pork cheeks appetizer is one of the best dishes I've ever tasted. I wish I could give the restaurant a five-star rating, but the noise level was unbearable. We had to ask to be moved - as did another couple - but even then we had to take turns going out to the parking lot just to get some peace and quiet. We both arrived feeling fine, and both left with a headache. Many high-end restaurants use fabric in their design to absorb some of the sound, but Juliette is designed with hard surfaces, which just amplify the sound. I'd love to dine there on a regular basis, but it was just too loud. If only they had take-out!

    The menu changes seasonally. When I first looked at the menu, several months ago, I found that there was little available for me to eat, as I have certain dietary restrictions. I tried again, and to my delight, there was much I could choose from. We shared several small plates and every item was delicious. I almost returned a couple days later just for the octopus!

    Food was good. For starters we had the grilled octopus & the pork cheeks. Both were very tasty. Entrees were pork shank & hangar steak. Pork shank was very tender. The steak was cooked perfectly. Service was good, a little slow but friendly. The only draw back is the restaurant is very, very loud.

    The food was moderately interesting, and the service was fine, but I was there with just 2 others, at a perimeter table, and we literally could not hear each other speak without shouting. This made the experience unrepeatable. The design is very poor for quiet ambiance, and as an afterthought it appears the owners installed some noise reduction panels on the ceiling. No way to know if this helps, but it certainly didn't cure. I couldn't wait to leave, which likely made the food less interesting.

    Juliette occupies the former space of the venerable Pascal. While Pascal was an upscale white linen sort of place, Juliette is much more informal (the white table clothes are gone)--more like a bistro. Nevertheless, the food is excellent and they have a great wine list. The service is outstanding and friendly. It's the perfect place for old friends to share a good meal over a bottle of wine.

    I came across Juliette while researching my final dinner in the Newport area, and what good fortune! We hit Paydirt (a red wine blend) with this recommendation from our server, Maria. Two starters that were especially outstanding were the grilled octopus, tender in a red wine sauce, and scallops in a curry sauce atop carrot purée. Dessert was an unusual version of profiteroles with fruit. A good send off for my post-vacation return to eating sanity!

    I med a long time friend who I had not seen in quite at the restaurant. I had never been, so it was good fun to try someplace new with an old friend. It was rater busy (which wasn't a bad thing) and we were seated and promptly served. The food was very good and was served at a great pace to let us nibble and chat. It seemed that the lunch rush died down between 130p - 2p and worked perfectly for us. The staff had no problem with us being one of the only couples left between lunch and dinner. I would come again and recommend a later lunch if you are looking for a break in the normal lunch hustle and bustle.

    I had the roasted quail and the flavors were spectacular. The bird was cooked perfectly and just fell off the bones. The sauce was flavorful and all the components of the dish complemented one another. However, the beet salad was very average. The New York dry aged steak was one of the best cooked steaks I've very had at a restaurant. There was no fat and each piece was soft and and melted in your mouth. For desert I had the honey cinnamon ice cream with snickersdoodles and it was the perfect way to end the meal. I would definitely come back here many more times!

    My wife and I recently enjoyed a Saturday night dinner at Newport Beach's Gastropub, Juliette. We started the evening by ordering a bottle of chardonnay from their unique "diamond in the rough" wine list. Starters included the delicious Pork Cheeks, Beet Salad and Farro Risotto (A must have !!). Dinner Entree selections included the Pork Shank which was incredibly fall off the bone tender and the perfectly cooked Scallops. Definitely a low-key setting at the previous Pascal's Tradition space. Sevice was very friendly and attentive. We will return !!

    I really don't understand, even when celebrating, why people feel the need to talk over each other at such a level that everyone can hear their entire conversation. It ruined the evening for the rest of the restaurant and believe if handled properly the staff could have asked them to quiet down without be offensive.

    Usually Juliette's is a great experience. I have had lunch delays but not like this one. Reservations made. 12:15 No tables available at arrival , restaurant was packed. They seated us at a tasting table in the wine shop. 8 min go by , hostess brings utensils and water. We had brought a bottle. Ready to order we had to go and ask for help. Took order. Now it is half way through our time limit. Had to grab someone to open wine. Cauliflower arrives its 12:45. Hostess passes we ask for bill to save time. 1pm our salads hadn't arrived. Salads arrive 1:15. We have to rush to finish. Not happy.
