Not the same team working as in the past. Service was slower and less personal but still good
We booked bar seats. Our food was great and came very quickly, but at the end of our meal the server came over to tell us that they have a time limit on he seats and we were 15 min over. At this point we had been dining for only an hour - so the time limit is 45 min? For a Friday night this is an insane time limit - what if we ordered dessert? Or apps? Also, all of the other patrons at the bar were there before us and no one else was asked to leave. I suspect they double booked or seated a walk in and needed the seats. Either way extremely rude, if your in a tight spot just explain it don’t lie and ruin our meal. Won’t ever return.
Thank you so much for your valuable feedback. As we investigate further, we would love to hear from you directly to make things right.
Took a littler longer then expected to get a waiter to come by initially. But the rest of the evening was fantastic. Food was excellent ! Would recommend the escargot. Four of us split the 24oz beef and a few appetizers and was more than enough. Chocolate mousse tasted like it may have been a day old . Can't wait to go back and try the duck.
The food was delicious. The owner mades is feel at home
We went on Tuesday night so had the good fortune to enjoy the steak special. It was absolutely delicious as were the frites. The service we received was great. The tables are very close together and we found the noise level to be very high, making it a bit difficult to enjoy a conversation.
An absolute gem!!! We are looking forward to coming back soon!
Absolutely fantastic, great friendly service, cosy atmosphere, wonderful food, we had the steak, desert to die for.
We had a lovely post shopping pre holiday meal. We actually reserved at the wrong location by accident and they sweetly sorted it all out. Second time at Jules Bistro and most definitely not the last.
Server was super caring and friendly. Music and vibe were perfect. Manager came to our table to chat and recommended I eat a bone piece with my hands to get the full experience. All together a fantastic evening!
Great food and awesome experience on an otherwise slow evening.
Amazing! Try the grilled salmon or the quiche of the day!
We haven't visited this location for over a decade - and so glad we came again. Enjoyed before, but much more comfortable (warmer - no draught from entrance) and great decor - real bistro feeling. Servers friendly and responsive. Introduced a friend for a birthday, and she loved it!
I was completely disappointed with the restaurant. I made a reservation for 8 people, I arrived at the restaurant with 3 other people and the others were not too far behind. The waitress informed us that the table was "ready". We got to the table and only 4 out of the 8 seats were available, I told the waitress that the rest of the party is almost here.She aggressive informed me that the other table is paying their bill and will be leaving. The rest of the party arrived shortly after and the table still wasn't ready. They had to stand uncomfortable next to us while they waited for the table. Our food arrived extremely cold and the service was very lackluster.
Delicious food, great and attentive service.
Food was good, escargot was amazing!!! The cote de boeuf lacked flavour, but good for the price (we got it on half priced Tuesday). Service was wonderful and fast! Ambiance was warm and cozy. Tables are just on top of each other
All I have to say if you haven’t tried this place , then you need to. Everything was amazing from the service , food , and atmosphere. I will be going back soon!
Great spot and will definitely keep going back.
Côte de bœuf was excellent as always. One of the best spots in the city.
Always have a wonderful time at Jules Bistro. Will return here with pleasure. Happy Holidays.
Seated right away when we arrived. We reserved a table as opposed to bar seating and had a great table for 2 near the bar. David the owner came over to take our coats to hang up. Server was super attentive and David suggested a great wine for us. We had scallops and escargot to start and steak frites and beef tenderloin as our entrees. Food, service and ambiance was great.
Steak Frites was delicious. Didn't get the Prix Fixe menu but it looked great. Overall good ambiance, would definitely go back!
One of my favourite restaurants in Toronto. Will definitely be going back.
Absolutely love going for a casual dinner
Great value on a Tuesday night...can't beat the deal...however with the deal and the crowd don't expect the best service....very hard to get the waiters attention... maybe waiting a little longer than you would expect to get what you need.......
Fabulous dinner here. Great service, fabulous food and a lovely atmosphere
Cozy bistro with excellent service and great code de Boeuf 😁
I love French food. I used to live in France and know what good French food tastes like. I was craving some good French food for my birthday dinner this past Sunday so I carefully scanned the menus of several well-known French restaurants in Toronto and looked at reviews and decided to give Jules Bistro a try. I was looking forward to typical, tasty French bistro food. That's not what I got at Jules Bistro. I started with classic French onion soup. It was mostly broth, light on the onions and had 3 large croutons with a little bit of gruyere on top. The worst part however, was that it was bland. It had no flavour. Three of us had the soup and we all felt the same way about it. My sister had the chevre chaud salad. Again, we've had this classic dish many times. The vinaigrette on the bed of salad seemed to be just some oil, no vinegar or herbs. Very bland. As for the chevre. It was a light smear on a slice of toasted baguette. You can barely call this a salade au chevre chaud. Then came the main courses. I chose the tuna tartare. It was bland with the same bland salad and frites that looked and tasted alarmingly similar to McDonald's fries. I expected hand cut delicious French frites. My daughter had the steak tartare. Bland as well with the same bland salad and McDonalds fries. The others in my group had the steak and veal chop. You guessed it - all bland with the same bland salad and McDonalds fries. Sending the food back would have not solved the problem. We probably would have been given a bottle of some sort of condiment or they would have put more salt on each dish. Plus, we were hungry so we ate it, bland as it was. The desserts were flavourful (finally!), but the portions were not generous. Toronto is a world class city now and Torontonians have an array of dining choices not easily matched. So why does anyone think we can't handle an authentic French bistro experience or that we want bland food? Needless to say, they won't be seeing me again!
Lovely hospitality, expensive for what you get.
Celebrate a masters
Lived in France for 5 years and can say this place has a genuine French 'vibe'. Food excellent, ambience excellent. Service friendly and spot-on (help discreetly available when needed, no excessive 'pestering' when not). Was our first visit and our high expectations were met. Won't be the last time either. Jules Rules.
Always enjoy my experience at Jules!
Had an absolutely amazing meal here: friendly service, great ambiance, and most importantly delicious food cooked to perfection!
The food was outstanding. Everything was excellent and there was more on the menu we wanted to try. Definitely will be back!!!
The food was delicious, good value for your money and the service was exceptional. I will definitely go back to Jules Bistro.
We love this Toronto hot spot. Perfect for any occasion. The food is absolutely fabulous and we always leave planning our next visit. The owner is always there with a warm hello and goodbye. The staff is excellent and the value worth every dollar.
The food is absolutely amazing - I take all my friends out for their birthdays here. The service is also great, servers are super nice and always attending to the table
Reviews about excellent service were accurate. Service was top notch
Loved our meal
Owner checked in multiple times to ensure our meal was meeting our expectations
I would go back for sure
We all had the pre-fix menu and all of it was fantastic. It was a fun evening, well-priced and good drinks. Love this place!
The restaurant is lovely. The atmosphere is warm and comfortable. Unfortunately, I was disappointed with my meal. The fish was cooked poorly. The accompanying greens were not interesting and reminded me of a salad mix available at any grocery store.
