Jules is an East Village gem! The food is always good as is the service. Live music makes for a cool and relaxed vibe. You won’t be disappointed.
We were two couples, recent friends. As we order differently, I put in a special request for separate checks and they completely disregarded our special request. So, don’t waste your time. Turns out our ordering was matched and everyone had no issue at all. Place was cold; after a bit, the maitre’d? put some heat on.
Coffee was served cold. I asked the waiter Jonah on a return trip if the coffee came with spoons. He got them. Coffee; even colder(lol). You had to ask for refills or you weren’t getting it.
The food was very nice and tasty; no issues here. Much of it was Organic to my fiancee’s glee. A woman playing a guitar singing Brazilian songs was nice in the background. We were able to have easy conversation.
Maitre’d asked for tips in cash. In food service for many years, I never saw that, but understand; they aren’t paid well. Maybe good reason. However, the place and food is very nice and is nice and is worth the trip.
Very nice food and service. Lots of French favorites
took my mother here for live jazz it did not disappoint, music and food were great, better than my first time here. skate was delicious as was kale salad fries burger mussels and apple dessert. We'll be back
Really fun brunch with live jazz! The food was delicious. Definitely recommend the duck confit hash!
Brunch at Jules Bistro is always great! Good food, live music on Sundays, good for groups, takes reservations, helpful and attentive staff. Everything you want in a brunch! Been meaning to try dinner too. Lots of my friends have brought out of town guests who have all been impressed too.
Had a great time on a beautiful snowy night in the Village. Food was good. Tables were tightly spaced, and the noise level was unbelievably loud that the musicians could hardly be heard.
Services excellent. Homemade pate--delicious!
The jazz band changes weekly so not sure when I will see this band again. However had a yummy dinner, delicious wine and lively music.
Splendid night to spend my birthday there. Great place to Jazz it Up. Great vibes, service, ambiance, and company. Couldn’t ask for more.
We ordered two bottles of wine, both which were bad (cooked) and they charged us for one of them.
Jules Bistro was terrible. First off, this place smells worse than a fraternity covered in alcohol after a party- the stench was absoluly disgusting and made me want to leave right after walking in. The reason we stayed was because of the “Live Music” which I specifically called about the week of and confirmed would be happening, and which was scheduled and advertised on their website... There was no live music. There was no apology. There was no note of this or mention of this ever prior to my arrival and sitting down. That was the only reason I was dining there, to experience the music with brunch and my date. With no music, you’re just sitting in one of the worst restaurants in nyc at a terrible place setting with subpar “French want-to-be” food. Place was a let down and I’d never go back or recommend anyone to waste their time attempting to go.
Highly recommend the mushroom and fig appetizer, the skate entré with the Côtes de Rhone Chardonnay
Excellent food. The best octopus I've had in Toronto - beautifully marinated and so tender.
Just loved it!
I am French, so I can recognise between fake and true French bistros. Jules is a real one. Good food, friendly staff (better than in France), nice decor.
Fantastic service and food was delicious as was the lovely old world French ambience with great jazz.
Great live music in a little bistro kind of place. The food was good and the service very good.
The ambience was amazing, with the low lights and the wonderful live music, very good food, I would definitely recommend a night out there!
Jules transports you to France with it's food, friendly French staff, laid back atmosphere and incredible jazz music!!!
I was able to score a reservation for Saturday night last-minute, and when my friend was late to meet me, they had no problem seating me right away - the unpretentious vibe is breath of fresh air in NY!
This is one of my favorite restaurants in New York. Everyone I've brought here loves it too.
We were sat right by the front door despite having a reservation... it was below freezing outside, so it was quite unpleasant any time someone entered or exited the restaurant. I'm not sure why they didn't seat us at one of the many other tables that could accommodate 6 guests. The music was lovely.
Very loud with the live music, very very cold on a 32F day in NYC. The servers were wearing UGGS and wool cardigans over turtlenecks while we shivered in our seats. A bit shabby by now.
Band was great
Great experience! Need to get credit cards working.
Excellent Jazz and the Muchroom Plateau was to die for!
A pleasant stop, with well prepared food and low key, casual entertainment.
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.
Loved everything about it
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.
Great atmosphere. Quality menu. Jazz without pretension.
The food was absolutely delicious and service wonderful. I've found a new favorite spot!
We all loved it - from a 16 yr old girl to 60 year old man! Cool jazz, GREAT food. fun staff.
This is a keeper. We'll be back.
I think it is a great value for quality of food and music.
It was really great Christmas eve ever. Cuisines were amazing and clean. The server were really nice and kind. I would like to listen fine jazz and it was.
Jazz with red wine which was matched with amazing French cuisine.
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.
An amazing night with good food, good wine, good music and great service, can’t recommend it enough! Our 22 anniversary with friends and the best ever yet! Gonna be hard one to top, if ever. GO!
Jules Bistro never disappoints. Great Jazz music every evening and the food is amazing!
Went for brunch and had fantastic food and fantastic jazz. Will be back soon.
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!
