We were excited to try the frog legs but were disappointed to learn that they only serve them on Mondays. Otherwise, the food and service were good.

Our meal was fine. We ordered the French onion soup which came out lukewarm and wasn’t very flavorful. We also had the house salad which was standard. I liked my meal better than my husband. I had the skirt steak with shallots + fries and thought the steak was very flavorful and well portioned. He had the duck l’orange which was overcooked. Ironic since the waiter said the chef refused to cook it any other way than medium/well. Seems the chef should cook it how the person paying for it requests it, but that’s just my two cents.

On a snowy night we had a perfect, romantic evening with wonderful food, helpful service . Extensive drinks and wine list with a range of good, reasonable selections. The beef cheek was among the best i've had and the salads were terrific. Bravo to the chef and staff for a true jem.

Chez Jules was our restaurant of choice the second night in a four day stay over the Christmas holidays. It's location in the shadow of the Chateau Frontenac adds to its ambience in the heart of Old Quebec City. You felt welcome as soon as you came in. The menu is well above average and unique. Our choices: A shared Pate en Croute Lyonnais Veau, Ravioli a la Tartuffe, Magret de Canard a l'Orange, and for dessert, Crepe Suzette Flambes! Magnifique!

Limited menu means most dishes are quite well done. We loved the ravioli and the beef cheeks. The skin on the chicken breast could have been crispier, although the meat was moist. The menu (or waiter) should note the dish contains mushrooms. Salmon was very good.

The escargot was the best we’ve ever had and we’ve had it all over the place from Toronto to nyc. Was also very kind of them to send us a glass of wine to celebrate our engagement.

Sea bream and salmon were excellent - nicely cooked and served. The chicken supreme was however dry on surface and pasta with it had hard edges - maybe it was sitting under warming lights too long? Most of this entree was not eaten but my gueat said nothing until later. Too bad as we would have drawn our server's attention to it.

The floating island dessert was very well prepared. Custard under meringue was flawless.

We sat outside, and enjoyed hearing street musicians as we dined. The host made excellent wine pairing recommendations. I had cassoulet du canard (I had not tasted this since 30 years ago when visiting Carcassone in France, and I was so happy to have a Languedoc wine to pair with it at Chez Jules). My wife reported that her salmon in a crepe was most delectable. The staff was attentive without being overbearing - perfect balance.

Wonderful experience

Service was indifferent at best. Waiter very offhand and only came to life when we were paying the bill! Charcuterie platter was good. Boulabaisse lukewarm with 2 pieces of fish, too much bread, broth cold. Awful and a rip off for $25.

Seating was tight and it felt like the wait staff was trying to move us through the meal to get another seating.

Food was prepared well and the wine we ordered was quite good! We had better experiences at other restaurants while visiting Quebec which I would recommend over Chez Jules.

This ended up being a great restaurant. I was afraid it would be too touristy but just the opposite. It was a great little bistro. Four of us had a great meal and everyone loved it. I had the mushroom ravioli which was delicious. Would definitely recommend.

We were party of 4. My husband and I got the sole. It was very good and could have used more sauce. The onion soup is the best I can remember having. The escargot were a little bland and the ravioli too mushroom for my taste. The hit at the table was the risotto.

Meal pace was uneven. Got our drinks and apps quickly, dinner was about 10-15 mins after we finished our apps. Dessert offered 10-15 mins after we finished our dinner. We waited a while for our check too. Food was good, though.

They had me at the mason jar filled with cornichons on each table! Everything I love in a French Bistro! Lentil salad with grilled pork belly was delicious as where the escargot and sole. Friendly service and wonderful wine list. If this restaurant was in my home town, we’d be dining here weekly. Look forward to our next visit to this beautiful city and wonderful restaurant!

Our favorite meal in Quebec City! The meat and cheese platter and the French onion soup were lovely starters. I had the beef cheek a la Bourguignon, which was delicious—incredibly tender meat and great garlic green beans. Others in our party ordered the salmon, steak and frites, duck leg, and truffle ravioli—all exceeded our expectations.

This was our final evening in Quebec, and our meal at Chez Jules made it perfect. The waitress recommended the Sea Bream and she was right; it was perfectly cooked and delicious. Would definitely revisit Chez Jules when in Quebec City.
