Really great night! Grateful for the delicious food - steaks to die for and vegan meal by special request thank you! Service was great. Bit noisy.

Suggest you let guests know to order prix fix desserts early as it was a surprise and disappointing to hear you had run out.

Will definitely be back!

We came here on a Monday night and it was busy! The host was super friendly and our server was very nice! We opted for the prix fixe menu and tried the Chevre Chaud, Steak Frites and Saumon Grille and Creme Brulee and Chocolate Mousse for dessert. The food was really good although the dessert was a bit slow to come out. It is probably because it is so busy in there, even for a Monday night. Would definitely come back again to try the other options!

As always the steak frites is excellent. However, caution to those ordering medium-rare as I find it was more rare. Prix fixe has generous portions.

Food was great, we all enjoyed our meals. Service was good. We went early and as the place filled up it grew quite noisy. That would be our only complaint.

Service and food were excellent. The noise level made it impossible to hear my dinner date. We took our dessert to go. This was suggested as a romantic restaurant, it was not. I would only go back on a quiet night.

Hello, we enjoyed our dinner very much! The service was impeccable and beyond most of other restos! However, at some point the noise level is too high, i had problems hearing my friends talking. C’est le seul bémol que je mentionnerais, à part ça, la soirée a été fantastique!! Merci, Marie

Overall, very disappointed with the experience. Majority of menu wasn't available (2 of the the 3 quiches, 1 of 3 salads, multiple appetizers). Portions were huge and food was subpar to similar restaurants / price points. Unfortunately, will not be returning

It was a wonderful experience. I've been wanting to go to Jules Bistro since 2 years ago but we had poor service at the Spadina and Adelaide location the moment we walked in and my partner refused to eat there. He was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the food at the Queen st location. Our server/bartender was an absolute pleasure and he's so good with people... undeniable charisma. I'll definitely be recommending and coming again. Thank you!

Food was okay, not great given the price. Not crowded on arrival but music so loud couldn't hear each other talk though the staff seemed to be enjoying the party. No one greeted us at the door. Ask the bartender about our reservation and he took us to our table. Apparently the owner saw us come in but he was busy talking to a group of friends that just arrived. Server seemed unsure of himself and was soft-spoken. Couldn't hear a thing he was saying. Kitchen seemed organized as meal came on time. Offered dessert but no coffee, had to ask for it. By this time, the restaurant was busy and so loud we had to leave. Given the number of dining options in Toronto, this would not be my first pick.

A+ service, A+ Food A+ Cocktails! With so many restaurants on Queen West I feel this is a little hidden gem! Everything was exceptional from the moment we arrived. The Steak frites - delicious. the Octopus was cooked so perfectly! The cocktails definitely packed a punch of flavour! This is a must go!

Amazing first time experience at Jules Bistro. The moment we got to the bistro we felt right at home. The owner himself took our jackets for us and that set the tone for the entire evening. Food and service was top notch which made my girlfriends birthday evening one to remember!

Excellent meal. Small space but the noise was level was perfect. Tables are very cozy but it worked. Meal was prompt, tasted amazing and presented well. Wish there was another option instead of fries (we had the Cote de boeuf special on a Tuesday) regardless the fries tasted nice. The service is the best part of the experience. Our waitress was very friendly, visited often and did not hesitate to cater to any need we had. Would go back 100 times.

Lovely gem of a place! The food is good, classic and simple but delicious and nicely prepared. The service was excellent, Anne took great care of us. It is extremely loud in there, so if you are looking for a quiet romantic evening or a place to converse with friends be prepared to get close to be heard. Great find and we will definitely be back!

Seated at the bar, it was a little drafty by the door now that it's winter. They were taking late seatings for dinner which is great for night owls. A little on the pricey side but it shows in the quality of the food... yum! you are sure to get your beef done perfectly! The cote de boeuf is outstanding! The escargots were some of the most tender i have ever had. Also great coffee (even the decaf tasted delicious) & lovely desserts.

Although I had a reservation, I was greeted and treated like they were not prepared and had to find space for us. Was excited to try the fixed menu, but our main course of steak frites was disappointing. Steak was burnt, so politely asked for a new one. Instead of good customer service and apologizing for the mishap, the waitress made unnecessary and odd comments. Our waitress then did not check on us the rest of the night. When paying, the waitress begged that we come back another day because she would not be there. Overall, the place had potential to be nice but the lack of decent customer service and average food left us disappointed.

Stopped by to try during my visit to Toronto from Palm Beach. The food was delicious and the ambiance was warm and friendly. Try the apple tart for desert...The best!! Dave the owner was very pleasant and even gave me a tour of the kitchen and patio. Great find in the revival artsy district.
