Steakhouse
Joule, the first restaurant from celebrated husband and wife cooking team Rachel Yang and Seif Chirchi, is re-located in October, 2012 to the innovative, newly developed the Fremont Collective in Seattle’s Wallingford/Fremont neighborhood. From its original opening in 2007, Joule has cultivated a loyal dining fan base and captured the attention of an admiring local and national media captivated by the couple’s unique, modern perspective on Korean cuisine. Joule, the mature sibling to Yang and Chirchi’s restaurant, Revel, highlights Korea’s love of beef featuring unconventional cuts accompanied by distinctive and shareable side dishes.

Joule takes reservations for 1.5-2 hour time slots for parties. We do our best to accommodate as many guests as we can so we ask to please be considerate of other diners at the end of your meal. If you feel that your party will require more time please let us know in the notes and we will get back to you with our available accommodations.

    Overpriced and gentrified food of mediocre quality; miniscule portions under the guise of “sharing”. Despite high hopes, I unfortunately cannot recommend this place.

    So many interesting and tempting items on the menu it was hard to chose. Four of us shared seven dishes ranging from small plates and vegetable sides to larger meat and seafood entrees. Short rib "steak" (served off the bone) was a highlight as were the geoduck black rice and the crispy squash, tempura-fried with a spicy Asian-inflected romesco sauce. Our server Donna and the kitchen staff orchestrated the courses and pace of our meal perfectly.

    You cannot go wrong at Joule. Every dish available is exquisitely prepared with perfectly balanced flavors and textures. My favorite of my most recent visit was the scallion pancakes. Their cocktails are in line with their food offerings - a splendid variety of tastes and all delicious. I'll be coming back as soon as I can.

    I came out of the dinner feeling inspired for my own cooking—the creativity and technique are spectacular. For example, romesco sambal—I'd never think of it, but of course, and then it's the thought to add currants that makes something so humble so extraordinary. I loved servers Brandie and Sierra, too, just outstanding care was taken throughout our evening.

    I booked a dinner for six friends at 6. 5 of the 6 arrived on time and the 6th was 15 minutes late. The waiter told us no less than 5 times that we needed to finish within 2 hours because another party was coming. I’ve never had this happen before. The food was delicious but this left a bad taste in my mouth

    When we dine out, we like to eat food that we couldn't or wouldn't prepare at home. Joule, with its Korean/Fusion, makes delicious meals that satisfy: Chinese scallion 'pancakes' with crème fraîche & salmon caviar. Their signature rice cake & chorizo dish, luscious Kalbi hamburger with giardinera, and the coconut panna cotta with tapioca pearls for desert. Wine menu is reasonably priced. Joule is one of our favorite Seattle restaurants.

    We went to Joule last night to celebrate my friend's birthday. We had a great meal and wonderful service. I have been looking forward to coming here for a long time. Our favorite dishes were the scallion pancake (boring by itself but the salmon roe and creme fraiche took it over the top), the charred cabbage and pear salad, and the tender kalbi. I love that they have mocktails too! We really enjoyed our meal but were not blown away.

    The flavors and the food was underwhelming. I wanted more Korean fusion. For example, the coulotte was well-cooked and tasty, but just tasted like a nice steak without the Korean flair that I was wishing. The same for the beef tartare. The kimchi should have been a highlight, but didn’t live up to my expectations.

    My husband and I visited Joules for our 7 year wedding anniversary and from the moment we walked in, to the moment we left, every single person was nothing but kind. The food was delicious and our server was especially sweet. I wish I could remember her name, but she was petite with glasses. I’d come back when visiting Seattle again!
