Incredible food and drinks!! I got the Cod which was very good but not as flavorful as what the rest my table ordered. I got to try a friends chicken kabob plate and that was incredible. I also tried the scallops crudo which was fresh and packed a nice flavor as well. I tried the onion soup and was not expecting to like that either but it was delicious. The service was great but I did feel that at times we would just get our food or drink, and barely have time to swallow or drink but each time there was someone already asking if we liked it and almost rushing us to order the next meal. That would be the only thing that I would say to improve on. Give customers a little bit more time to enjoy it all.

It has been great to see the evolution of this cozy restaurant since opening a few years ago. The pandemic has forced it to embrace outdoor dining as well as take-out and delivery. Ranging from service, food and drinks, Julii is almost always on-point. I've tried a little of everything here and have been consistently pleased with the creative approaches taken to cuisine.

Perfect outdoor dining scenario on a beautiful spring afternoon. The menu offers plenty of options for either small plates or entrées and the "park like" setting made the experience feel almost "normal" again. Our server was prompt and knowledgeable.

The cocktails were beautifully made and the food was so flavorful and presented very artistically. Our first server was wonderful, he was able to customize our cocktails to our liking and was patient and attentive. I would go back.

Had a reservation for 9AM and they were running behind, so the manager Chris offered the "igloo" outdoor dining experience and waived the minimum order amount which was really generous. We made our original dinner reservation and Joann our server was very prompt, extremely knowledgeable about the menu, and made the whole dining experience a pleasure! Excellent entrees and a very intimate atmosphere in both the outdoor "igloos" and the indoor seating with low lighting in the evening dinner hours.

Great first time at Julii. Great waitresses and waiters. Everyone was friendly and this place reminded me of Europe especially with the bathrooms as WC. Reminded me of when I lived in Germany for 7 years.
Great atmosphere and would def come again with gf and friends :)

Julii is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is SPECTACULAR, the drinks are AMAZING. The service, however, is not. I’ve been here countless times and usually sit at or near the bar. This time I reserved a table for 4. The young lady that served us was so rude and smug that I’m not sure I’ll be back. I don’t care how good the food is (and it’s really good), service is make or break.

I was running a little bit late but the restaurant (manager/server) were patient and understanding - it wasn’t at all busy so that might’ve had something to do with it.
They did stress their time limit. I don’t think we were sat 6ft from another table because there were people seated in the seats behind me. But I didn’t even notice until right now in writing this and thinking back. The menu can be overwhelming if you’re not used to the food - my friend had a harder time. The server was very knowledgeable. I ended up ordering their cheese plate, the lamb dish and at least 3 different cocktails. My friend had a salad with some grilled chicken and a side of fries/wedge frites. I had some of my friends food and also very good. Overall, good experience, good food, good drinks.

We had requested the igloo seating weeks in advance; received multiple phone calls from the restaurant confirming the reservation and noting that I was celebrating my 50th and my mom her 75th birthday on that saturday evening. When we arrived we were seated promptly and assigned Chris as our server. Throughout the evening everything went downhill- Chris did not acknowledge our celebration event- I reminded him at the beginning. He seemed to be forgetful about alot of things- he forgot our wine order until our entree was done- He seemed to be either overwhelmed with multiple tables or just didn't care. The cocktails were watered down- we asked him to discuss with bartender- he said ok and never came back- our appetizers arrived and we reminded him that we never got our cocktails fixed- he said he forgot. Everything that we would remind him that was an oversight, he would apologize and state he 'forgot.' Tey came out - no happy birthday, no candle , nothing really special for this event - and of course we were charged for everything . When I mentioned this to Chris- well, again, he apologized and said "oh thats right, it is your birthdays". Not sure what the restaurant policy is on celebrations and making guests feel they care- but i would not recommend this restaurant if you are doing any kind of festivity/celebration-with alot of choices around the area - I would pick another establishment that makes the guest feel special and does something above just plopping entrees in front of you. Very disappointed.

Wonderful ambiance, however food quality and value were decidedly absent. Cheese plate came with sliced baguette that was cold and hard and the cheese wasn't proportioned well with the accoutrements (read: stingy cheese portion). Most importantly, the french onion soup did not have the concentrated flavour that you expect of this french staple. It was extremely watery.

First time at julii and it was a great experience especially we haven’t tried a new restaurant in a long time! Our server was extremely nice and friendly and our food was great! Also I don’t drink old fashioned, not really my thing, but I tried a sip from husband and I think it was amazing I would actually order it next time!

3 of us celebrated in an outside igloo. Food, service, ambience was top notch. We were cozy warm in our heated igloo on a cold night and conversation was easy inside the private bubble. The cod with beet greens in a beurre blanc was fantastic...I’ve never cleaned my plate of beet greens!

The food is awful. We ordered chicken kabobs (too spicy), fish (on a bed of potatoes and with fried bacon sauce... really?!) and some seafood. Macaroni with meaty sauce for kids was terrible. $28 per plate we basically had to trash. It feels like fried bacon was added everywhere. The desserts weren't impressive either. I always had a good experience with a French cuisine being from Europe but this time it was such a disappointment. All of our party members had upset stomachs after the dinner and had to take meds.

I go to Julii all the time but on this occasion the service wasn’t so good. In addition, they changed their brunch menu and took off a lot of the really good options. My food was good but wasn’t really what size was hoping for. They need to go back to having bettering brunch options.

The food was spectacular and having lived in Manhattan the last ten years, we are touch critics. Honestly it’s my favorite restaurant here and the outdoor ingloo set up is perfect during the cold Covid months.
