Elegant and very good. Beautiful space and very good service. Small menu, but enough variety to please. We had a big ribeye and fresh local fish. Not cheap, but worth it.

Julia's staff is incredibly attentive. They changed head chefs not long ago, and their menu changed a bit at that time. We've been here numerous times lunch and dinner. I recommend the duck, pork chops, and any of their salads. LOVE this quiet, friendly restaurant,...More

Four of us had a delicious and quiet dinner out at this architectural wonder. Great waitstaff and good food and drinks. Also convenient for walking to our concert venue after dinner. The dining rooms are elegantly appointed and quiet enough to converse throughout the meal.

My wife and I had previously dined at Julia’s, and had a very enjoyable dinner. Should you wish to know more, the details are in an earlier review. The meats were all wonderfully done, and I still have fond memories of the gnocchi. More recently,...More
