I had a nice birthday dinner at Julii. The ambiance was fantastic and the food was delicious. There was a mishap where one dish took longer to prepare but management informed us of the issue. They were nice enough to remove the dish from the bill. The cocktails were really the best part of the meal. Looking forward to going again.

Crepes were too heavy. I expected light, crispy crepes. They were more like pancakes. Steak and eggs, ordered by my companion, were excellent; presentation was very good.

This place is lovely. Took a friend for her 40th birthday. They made her feel special with their sparkler candle and the food was delicious (lots of veg and GF options). Our server, David, was kind and just the right amount of attentive. Will definitely take guests, friends, and loved ones here in the future.

Julii is by far my favorite restaurant in the area, the ambiance, food and experience overall is always really top notch and memorable. I said to the nice bartender last night, “We need more Julii type of places up this way!” Can’t wait for the sister restaurant, Melina to open in the Fall!

We were not as impressed with the food this time as when we last visited Julii. In particular, the fish main course, while tasty and attractively presented with multi-colored sauces, had no side dishes. For this price, the dish should include a complementary vegetable or starch. Once we realized this, we ordered a side dish of mushrooms, which took well past the time for us to eat the main course to arrive.

The service was excellent, and the manager kindly sent us an extra course, but he should have checked with us first, since the dish used bacon, which 3 of the 4 of us do not eat!

The outdoor ambiance was wonderful.

So, our review is good this time, but not a rave.

Had a lovely dinner celebrating my birthday. We were seated a few minutes prior to the reservation and had a very attentive server throughout the evening. There were enough choices on the menu without feeling overwhelming. We will definitely be returning!

Fernando was a wonderful server. Knowledgeable, attentive and engaging.
My fiancée and I came here for my birthday dinner—we had a fantastic experience. This was my second visit to Julii, my fiancée ‘s first.
All our courses were exceptional in flavor, balance, quality:

Alsatian tart
Bluefin tuna crudo
Lamb tagine (best lamb we’ve had anywhere)
Scallops risotto
Special dessert—chocolate truffle with puff pastry and reduced cherries

It’s not a quiet candlelight dinner, so don’t expect this type of ambience.
Highly recommended for foodies and lovers of Mediterranean/Southern France cuisine.

Love love love that their food is different, interesting and delicious! Literally everything we ordered made us groan with delight. Very much appreciate the “Designated Driver” mocktails as well as fabulous fancy cocktails. Beautiful and comfortable seating, and quiet enough to easily have a conversation. A wee bit pricey, but worth it given the amazingly delicious food, excellent service and great ambiance. Can’t wait to go back.

Terrific dinner eating outside, on terrace in the month of July with spouse and our dog. Service was very good and food delectable. My only criticism is that I enjoy eating vegetables with every meal and there were none served with my trout and potatoes -- although the trout and potatoes were absolutely delicious. Not inexpensive but not overpriced either. Will definitely go back.

Part of the appeal of Julii is its slightly unique visual quirkiness, the feeling of being involved in an experience that isn't the same old, same old. They put a lot of emphasis on food presentation. Service is exceptional as is the food. Servings are on the generous side.

The decor and aesthetic isbeautiful. We came here for brunch and the food was fine but really over priced for what it is. We ordered the tuna crudo (great), breakfast burger (burnt), mushroom omelet (dry and where were the mushrooms?), benedicts (fine) and labneh (didn't try but was nicely plated?). Maybe the dinner menu is better?

Ate there for the first time on 07/07. The food was delicious. Our waitress was awesome. She was quick, efficient and funny. My friends and I shared the avocado cesar salad. For my entrée I had the scallop risotto, they had the trout and Julii Burger.
For dessert I had a chocolate mousse like dessert and my friends had crème brûlée.
I really enjoyed it and will probably go back again, when they have shakshuka again
