I went to Cafe Joul with some friends tonight with high expectations and was not dissapointed. The person who took my reservation was friendly and helpful. Our waitress was friendly and we never felt rushed. Our water glasses were filled promptly. The entrees we ordered were cooked perfectly, with just the right amount of seasoning. Sauces were delicious and complimented the dishes quite well. The duck and calf liver is fabulous. The salmon although cooked well is good but a tad boring. We felt the prices were just right and would definately come back.

Alright, this place is very nice; the steak I had was quite good and well cooked, but c'mon. It's a neighborhood place. I don't see travelling across the city to eat at Joul (let alone from Jersey, Jersey Girl!). The best meal you've had in years? That's just going too far!

What a delight from the first morsel that enters your mouth! A true French bistro, the menu selections are wonderful, ingredients carefully blended. You will not be disappointed and will be coming back for more. This is the kind of neighborhood restaurant that New York is famous for! Don't miss it.

Cheerful, friendly good bistro fare. The waitresses and owner always remember me and treat me like a special guest. The food is delicious and varied. My favorite is the light raviolli in a truffle sauce that i can taste for days. The warm chocalte cake is divine.

On a recent trip to New York, I had the pleasure of dining at Café Joul. I can honestly say that it was the best meal that I’ve had in years. The dishes were simply prepared with fresh, natural ingredients and a wonderful blend of flavors. The ingredients were blended in a way that was not overpowering, but were made a chef with a masterful hand. The prices were moderate for fine dining, and although the restaurant is relatively small, it was easy to have a quiet conversation even though the tables are fairly close together. It has a casual elegance. I highly recommend a trip to Café Joul and will definitely return when I am next in the city.
