Typical tourist trap. Beer prices were not mentioned anywhere and for the record they were really expensive. When we asked for the check, they brought us no receipt or any other analysis of what was included in it. Without being told, the tip was automatically...More

How lame is I? I had one of my honeymoon meals at this very average and unremarkable "bistro" that is generic french.

The food is French and reasonably good. Try the bouillabaisse for sure. The desserts were disappointingly not fresh- about a day or two old would be my guess.

We went to listen to Charles Unger, and grabbed some wine and a few appetizers. The food is billed as french, and menu contains frog legs and pates, but there is also standard "fried calamari" fare. Music was good, food was average, wine selection is...More

With good seafood, good service, reasonable prices, and hot jazz, what more could you ask? Les Joulins JazzBistro offers a diverse menu of French influenced dishes and entertainment for the price of dinner and a reasonable contribution to the jazz quartet's tip jar. It's definitely...More
