    We sat at the bar, we enjoy doing that for date night. Good service there. We had the bacon app it was really good, a little lacking on the presentation. Tossed together in a cup with dried vegetation. My salad was really good. I got the steak add on but it was fatty. If it’s going to be be cut up cut off the fat. Husband had the shrimp dish. Dinner rolls were hot. Two drinks later we were $120 out the door. A tad expensive for one app, two drinks, a salad with add on and a dinner but when thinking of dining out we might be back.

    I LOVE Juliet’s & downtown Joliet but Juliets continues to disappoint me. Ran out of scallops (which were my entrée choice) so tried buffalo shrimp (not as good as Hooters!) . They are, like all service businesses, short handed, so getting drinks took way longer than it should. Husband’s delmonico was delicious!

    The staff was amazing. It was NYE so it was crazy busy but everyone from the hostess to the servers were excellent. The food and drinks were served in a timely manner. The food was delicious! Appetizers were good sized portions. Prices were reasonable if not low for the quality!!!

    The people working at Juliet's on Tuesday December 27th were wonderful. Our server was very attentive and extremely friendly. My husband had the Beef Medallions and I had the Bourbon Salmon. Both dishes were exquisite as was the raspberry donut cheesecake. We were all very pleased.

    Table was ready on time.Nice setting near the fire place and Christmas tree.Waitress was very attentive.Mixed drinks a little small but good.Food was good and served warm.Price seemed a little high,but I guess that’s the way things are nowadays.We will return next time we attend a concert at the Realto.It’s still hard to make downtown Joliet a destination on Saturday evening

    Went here for dinner before a show at the Rialto. It started off slow, but once a server realized that we hadn’t ordered she took our order and things were fine after that. We started off with roasted sprouts that we delicious. I had the chicken saltimbocca and the other half had the meatloaf both were really good! Will definitely go back.

    my daughter and I were there Thursday night before the show. Sarah 90 did her best to get us in and out quickly despite adverse conditions. we waited 10 minutes and no one approached our table so I went in search of a white person and some water. Once Sarah was assigned to our table, she moved quickly to get us our drinks took our orders and let us know that our food was going to be up shortly. I think the hostess that night was a bit overwhelmed. We are regulars at Juliets and of course will be back but this was not one of our best experiences.

    This was our first time at Juliet’s Tavern. We had reservations. We were greeted and immediately seated. The menu had plenty to choose from, but not too much to make it difficult. Our server immediately greeted us and took drink order. We placed our order soon afterwards. The food came out timely and everything was at the right temperature. The food all tasted good. I had the cheeseburger and it was cooked medium as I ordered. My wife’s prime rib sandwich was also cooked correctly. The hostess came by a couple times during the time we were there to make sure things were going well for us, and our server also was right on top of things. I can’t often rate a restaurant experience perfect, but this definitely was one time I could. We decided to put this place in our “regular rotation.”
