What Insiders Are Saying
Have your next group dinner at Joule, the Korean steakhouse in Wallingford. The huge menu has enough options to keep everyone happy.
The food was wonderful but would have been complemented better in a quieter ambience.
Server was great. Food was pretty great but rice cakes were a little over-sauced or something. Could have used a water bottle on the table. However, overall a very nice time.
Everyone in the party enjoyed their food. As always the buffet had a lovely selection of different flavors to try. The music was too loud and even though we asked the waitress to turn it down it wasn't.
Really good food and service. In Seattle first time. Went based on recommendation. Definitely worth it.
The food at the Joule, as always, was phenomenal. My favorites are the Beef Tartar, Bone Marrow and Spicy Rice Cakes. New additions to the menu are also very good.
Service this time was a little off, but over all good. We had to ask for plates between some of the courses where we have not had to do that before.
Overall, always a favorite place to eat!!!!
Three days later my husband and I still can’t quit talking about how incredible the flavor combinations were in EVERY dish we tried👍
We have told everyone we talk to that they have to go try it. We can hardly wait to get back and try more dishes until we’ve covered the whole menu 😃🍽 The service was absolutely incredible. And we loved the simple, fun Decour and sitting out in the open air by the fire 🔥.
Fantastically delicious and different food. Cool ambience. Good service. Open kitchen.
Food was absolutely delicious, though a bit on the pricier side for the area. The waiter I had was attentive and very friendly. I was torn between two menu items and asked for his recommendation, and he gave me a more detailed description of each item and told me his favorite between the two. I took his recommendation (the roasted cauliflower), and it was fantastic! Definitely would go back again and tell friends to check it out.
Lovely bites. Our lumpia was not hot on the inside, but very flavorful Casey was great!
Amazing restaurant with great food, cocktails and wine selection. The atmosphere was warm and exciting. The open kitchen was fun to watch and it showed the dedication to their craft. Worth the trip!!!
We went to Joule for a birthday celebration. I notified the server that I did not eat gluten. He told me the dish to avoid was the tofu because it had soy sauce which is made from wheat. I ordered the duck. When it came out there was what appeared to be corn bread... it was not. I ate a bite and discovered it was bread. This was not noted on the menu and he did not inform me when I ordered the dish. I told him and he pretty much rolled his eyes at me. Overall, I feel he was semi rude to me.
With all that being said the food was mostly amazing. Cheers to the chefs!
I think they could label the items without gluten to make it easier for their customers. Also, a few more vegan options would be nice.
Very tasty, especially the black sesame noodles. The wine pairing suggested by the waitress was quite bad but apart from that we had a great experience. The steaks were cooked to perfection!
The food is above average. My wife really like their seared duck breast, and I Ike the octopus better.
Too good. Best restaurant in Seattle.
Each dish was a delight. Our server was spot on with recommendations. A great experience.
Typically, for a Sunday brunch, you would expect the availability of food to be steady for a brunch as opposed to ordering from a menu. No less than on a Sunday especially when brunch is offered. Along with many of the other patrons, there was a period of time where the brunch/buffet table was empty, and it took awhile to have the new dishes brought out. I know other patrons to the right and left of our table were also wondering when new dishes would be brought out. At least on two to three occasions, the waiter was asked when there would be more dishes. I was disappointed because this was our first time coming here, and we came because it was supposed to have good reviews. But seriously, you cannot run out of food on a Sunday if you are offering Sunday brunch as your main option.
Perfection. Made my birthday!
My favorite Seattle restaurant. Every dish is absolutely fantastic!
There was not a single drink, dish or comment/recommendation from our server that wasn't spot on. True, for our second round of beer a different local hefe came out, but it was just as good as the lager we had for the first round. We all left a little embarrassed that we hadn't been to Joule before now!
Always love Joule!
Amazing food! It was a defiantly a little loud and hard to hear because we were in a large group. Our server was not great though. Instead of suggesting doing family style she insisted on it in a pretty aggressive way. When we decided not to do family and do individual plates she rolled her eyes and insisted we all get starts to share because no way are mains would all come out at the same time but the food was pretty quick and did come out at the same time for being a busy Saturday night. It was just sorta odd. But it was amazing food and defiantly worth going back.
Second time coming here and every dish was better than the one before. Outstanding creativity and flavors. One of the best meals we have had in ages and we eat out a lot!
Food is always amazing and service was attentive but not obtrusive. They were great about being kind to my 2 boys, even though it was a typical date night.
The food was fantastic. The experience did not match the price of the meal. The wine was not good at all, the waitstaff had a very uncohesive, scattered appearance that really made you regret the amount of money you were about to spend. All of it made the taste and quality of the food seem likely to disappoint, especially when one considers that the neighboring restaurant offered a much more serene and tailored and relaxing experience. If it were me, I'd put my staff in uniforms and crack down on the multicolored hair. Then I'd dim the lights. And get a wine list that's more curated and about 1/4 the amount of options. And I'd throw out the rotting flowers at the hostess stand. The food was delicious but I'd never eat there again because I don't want to experience that much noise / annoying personalities at that price again.
Family style sharing is an awsome way to have a memorisable date! Highly recommended
Nice atmosphere and interesting fusion of flavors, but prices are a bit high for the portions.
Had a delightful dinner. Food was great and service was warm and welcoming.
Our favorite was the rice cake - good, strong flavor, as well as the kalbi steak. The mackerel was disappointing - can't taste the green curry. Kaya butter could have been more intense - I am from Singapore where kaya toast is a national dish. The black sesame was a nice mix
Great service, and great brunch. Love the different monthly themes for the buffet. Highly recommend.
We were 15 minutes late and I called to give them a heads up which the person appreciated! The waitress gave a great recommendation for drinks which I took and also took her advice on the “stew”. My friends also really liked the service and the food! If there was one thing we didn’t go back for seconds on was the scones. The waitress explained that they change the buffet options every months and the menu options every season, can’t wait to come back and see what great options you have!
Party of 3, Saturday night. Arrived early for our reservation and waited just briefly (we were a solid 15 min early, so this was totally acceptable for us). The host was extremely gracious when he had to inform us that our table’s current occupants were lingering, and we could either wait a little longer for a table or we could immediately sit at the chef’s table he had also saved for us just in case. We opted for the chef’s table, and we could not have made a better decision. Watching the employees work was like watching a ballet. The food was outstanding (the black sesame noodles, rice cakes, and broccoli in particular). The servers were all extremely intuitive, and they brought us a different menu when we mentioned having a vegetarian in our midst, which documented more clearly which dishes were vegetarian, GF, etc. Definitely will return.
The curried pickled beets were over pickled. We couldn't taste the beet through the vinegar & curry flavors. The beef dish would have been good if they hadn't added the Chinese 5 spice that was not listed in the ingredients. It over powered the other flavors. All dishes were extremely small and the flavors were not good.
Wonderful! Food was delicious and surprising. unique.
The breakfast buffet was a strange Korean-Irish combo which was not very good and pretty cold/soggy. Nothing exciting and purely just something to tide you over until your real food came. I had the waffles + chicken fried steak which was good but not the most exciting thing ever. My partner had the bao which was very different then any other bao I’ve had and was very bready. The proportions were off. Overall, it’s a cool atmosphere but food and service was very meh
Once again, Joule fails to disappoint. Excellent food and service. Definitely some of the best flavors, and perfectly executed dishes in the city. With decent portions and prices. Will return again very soon
Very yummy food, surprisingly fast service, a great choice.
Food was awesome. The rib eye steak was some of the best Rib Eye I’ve had just short of José Andres Bazaar Meat in Vegas! Wonderful food. Will return again soon!
I had a really pleasant brunch experience at Joule! With the buffet, I was able to try a lot of different flavors without getting too full and left feeling satisfied. I enjoyed that it wasn't typical brunch food and that I was able to try something more unique. Being part Korean, the food also made me very reminiscent on the flavors of my childhood. Lastly, service was very attentive and super friendly! Thank you for a great experience!
Our first visit. Many unfamiliar dishes on the menu, but everything we tried tasted great. Steak was particularly good, as you might expect. And the bill was not outrageous. Highly recommended!
