French bistro in the East Village with very good food and live music seven nights a week. The space is intimate and seating is tight but overall an enjoyable dinner.

Very bad experience, we ordered 2 bottles of wine, many apetizers and they kept me saying that we needed to decide quick because they were really busy and I had to order a main course, really don’t understand how they could treat a customer like these, will never go back again and will not recommend, there are really great restaurants in manhattan so this is not worthy a try.

I have been going to Jules for years. It's a lovely spot. It can get a bit loud if it is full and the band playing. That being said the music is always good as is the vibe and food.

Food theme is French, and pretty authentic and tasty (beats Les Halles bigly; then again, not hard to do). Atmosphere is quaint, cozy. We were not there on music night, so it was quiet and relaxing, yet busy. Brunch and off-hours are family-friendly.

shades of the past. a retro restaurant reminiscent of the old village we remember from the 60's. not to mention music during cocktail hour and a trio with singer during the meal. tablecloths, subdued atmosphere, music not intrusive, great old time songs, interesting menu, enough options, food above average.

A home away from home...
It feels like you're in Paris until you step outside onto Saint Marks. It gets a little noisy depending on the live music, but it's a blast regardless. 10/10 would recommend!

The menu of French bistro classics at Jules is only enhanced by the live music -- first piano, then a jazz trio + singer. We enjoyed onion soup and frisee salad (both typical) followed by a steak frites and cassoulet. Everything was satisfactory, and the steak -- a sirloin strip -- was especially good. Creme brulee to finish. When we arrived for our 6:45 reservation, the main room was about half full, but when we left two hours later the joint was really jumping. Worth a visit!

It's one of my favourite restaurant in NYC. Food is delicious, good wine selection, the service is good but discreet at the same time and the live music always of top level. Nice atmosphere with a European touch.

Went for Sat brunch. Only 2 tables occupied inside the restaurant (outside tables were full), and the music was so loud that the waiter could not hear our order, and we couldn't hear each other talk. Other than that, the food was pretty good and it was easy to get to.

We were looking forward to hearing the Live Jazz group and having some good French food. The space itself is unsuited to having that many people crammed in at the bar and squashed into the table area. It was uncomfortable and way way too noisy to even hear the excellent group even though they were miked! The food was good and well prepared, but on the expensive side. The service was very good, but at points it was difficult to find our waiter to add to our order or get our check. It was unfortunately not a relaxing experience. The noise level was so excessive, it made conversation amongst ourselves almost impossible. Suggestions have been given to the restaurant by band members and other people, but clearly this is not a priority for the restaurant. We will not be back.

My husband and I dined at Jules on a Sunday night. We started out on their lovely patio and after dinner moved inside so we can see the band. The three-piece jazz band played the old classics and it was really enjoyable. The wait staff was really attentive and pleasant to interact with. We will be back.

Always loved Jules Bistro as a go to prior to an evening over at the Public. Food is reliably good and the wait staff friendly and helpful. Early dining options give one the luxury of a quiet room with just the sounds of the local jazz combo playing in the back round. If you enjoy steak frites, moules frites, duck confit or any other typical bistro dishes go. You won't be disappointed.
