It's become a tradition for my son and I to have dinner at Jules at the end of every school year to celebrate another (generally) successful conclusion to his studies. We always finish our meal with creme brûlée for dessert and a photo of him...More

A friend recommended Jules at the last minute, so we changed our plans because my partner loves French food. I'm happy we changed our plans. Jules is fantastic! Make time in your evening/vacation to give patronage to this establishment. My only negative is our waitress...More

This is a nice little restaurant close to Blood Alley. A word of caution for those who are wary of homeless people. If you're not, you should check out this place. As the name of the restaurant suggests, it is a casual in terms of...More

Excellent French restaurant in the middle of Gastown district. Not only the food is exceptional but the service is magnificent. Manager and waiter are so friendly. I would come back again anytime I visit this district.

The food and service are both impeccable here. I have been here about 30 times and it is consistently good. Nice patio. Classic French cuisine. Presented nicely and cooked perfectly. The service is attentive and friendly. Great room.

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
history a more lively presence here than anywhere
else. Having been originally founded around a popular
worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of

Funny that you mention that, we had reservation for my friends brithday at 8.30. We arrived early, and at 9.15 we still did not have our table set up. The manager Mikel, did not even apologize once. Instead he yelled at us for wondering how long it would be, and asked us if we wanted to ask the guests to get up and leave.

We have read that the manager can be a bit rude. I have been to restaurant on several occasions and have always had a good experience.
