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!

We were here for Thanksgiving. There was a prix fix Thanksgiving menu which was beyond fantastic. My husband ordered from the regular menu; fabulous skate and sauteed spinach.
Wonderful and extensive wine choices.

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.

If French food and live jazz in an inviting cozy atmosphere make you happy, you will love Jules. The band is not too loud, the talking throughout the room offers background ambience without intruding on your own conversation. Food was delish, tho not mind blowing. Everyone enjoyed their meal. If you want protein, veg, carbs, you will want to order a side dish - the organic salmon came with asparagus, no other side dish, while the tender hangar steak came with a delicious risotto, but no veg. We were too full to order desert, tho the selection was enticing.

We arrived and there was only one waiter in the entire place. We it took about 10 minutes to be seated since there was no hostess. Finally some more wait staff showed up after we had been trying to get our order taken for a while. He was nice and gave my mom a mimosa on the house. The female singer was awful! The man who sang with her was amazing though. His mic kept getting static feedback but he was honestly the best. But we couldn't get out of there fast enough.

Pleasant evening, above average food, only 1 waiter and 1 bus boy for the entire restaurant, so I would say service is lacking, they put on the bill for 2 glass of white for 88.00! so be careful to check your check carefully.
Music is pleasant, but they got the "Chicken cordon blue" all wrong, its more like sautéed chicken in brown sauce, would not recommend this dish at all.
