Brasserie Française Chez Jules Ratings and Reviews
Needed to host a business dinner for five colleagues on - of all nights - Valentines day. Tried to get a reservation at a few of the more well known spots in the City. When they were all booked I thought we were settling on a reservation at Chez Jules. Boy was I wrong. Everything was great from the service, the wine recommendations, appetizers, charcuterie, entrees and dessert. I have no hesitation about either returning to or recommending Chez Jules.
Food was very lovely, enjoyed the chicken pate then the sweetbreads and it was very deelish.. the only criticism was we felt a bit rushed, wanted us to order pretty much immediately and food came out pronto. It wasn't that busy that they needed the table...other than that service was friendly and professional..
Me and my girlfriend decided on Chez Jules for our final dinner in Quebec and it was one of the best decisions we made here! It was very accessible and easy to get to (especially coming from across the river in Levis) and the warmth inside was perfect in the January weather. Staff were very friendly and treated us with a lot of familiarity, making jokes and complimenting our choices. We were even treated to free coffee when we realized we had just missed our ferry! The food was lovely and well presented, and the atmosphere was perfect for our date. I highly recommend this restaurant!
This place was always very busy when we walked by and it's on OpenTable, which we always consider first when traveling. But, skip it, as there are so many better restaurants in Quebec! I had dried out goose leg confit with soggy vegetables, and BOTH pasta and potatoes as sides. They love heavy sauces there, too. Just SO average!
Despite having used 'brunch' as my main search word, we sat down early (11:45am) to the lunch menu and were not disappointed. French Onion soup and superb foie gras to start followed by Croque Madame and Duck, all ticked the right boxes. We did not partake of any wine but the drinks were brought swiftly and service, accommodating our Englishness, was with a smile. If you are in Quebec and find the Fairmont Chateau Frontenac you can find nearby Chez Jules - go, you won't regret it.
The service at the restaurant was wonderful. My husband had to try the beef cheeks and they were delicious I even I tried them and enjoyed it very much . I had a chicken dish and it was so delicious. we took the waiters recommendation for dessert and had the bread pudding it was fabulous . I highly recommend this restaurant
The service was really good! They were very warm, friendly, and accommodating! The clientele was about 60% English-speaking tourists and 40% French-speaking and they could communicate with ease. The one waitress even made it a point to come back and check if we wanted to sit outside, when a table opened up. The food was good, the salmon tartare was surprisingly bland, but certainly not inedible, but the salmon "back" filet was outstanding.
Well situated location, but the food was disappointing, surprisingly in light of the mainly very positive reviews. Most disappointing was the French Onion Soup au gratin. Very thin-tasting and the onions were not really cooked down and caramelized. I remarked to the waiter when then inquired, that the soup tasted as if they had run out of it earlier and had to quickly whip up a new batch and didn't have time to cook it and let flavour develop. Really very meh. The rest we had was so so. The flank steak with shallots was nicely cooked and tasty. We decided to go elsewhere for dessert. We heard the table right next to us commenting on their disappointment vis a vis the food as well. The resto was busy and full, but Service was nicely attentive, however, didn't offer any suggestions regarding the bland soup.
A lot more restaurants in the area, so no need to go back there.
We arrived early because we were going to a Celine Dion concert (with 30,000 of our closest friends), so we had a drink in the sidewalk cafe section (good people watching) until the kitchen opened and then moved inside (just as it started to rain) to a table right by the window (probably a result of having made a reservation a few days before). I started off with snails and followed with beef tartare, both of which were excellent. My wife had a salad followed by salmon tartare (also excellent). Our wine choice was from the less expensive options, but was completely pleasant. We would go back.
The service was terrible! We had to ask for anything we needed multiple times.
The portions are pretty small compared to American portions and the menu is pretty limited.
The location is great particularly if you can get seated outside. We were a party of 8 and they told us that was not possible.
Dined here on a visit to Quebec City from Boston. I had the liver, and my friend had the sole. Both were execellent though the liver portion was a bit on the small side. The waiter was great and spoke impeccable English. There was outdoor seating which would have been great except it was a little buggy outside. Though we came from the other direction, the restaurant was very close to the Chateau Frontenac.
Smack bang in a very touristy street, it's unlikely I would have wandered in, but thanks to the reviews here we booked for dinner. Immediately welcoming and accommodating for our 6 and 7 year old with a kids menu that included steak and frites and salmon and rice (switched for frites) with a drink, went down very well.
Steak tartar and salmon tartare to start were excellent and went down well. Carafes of an excellent Fronsac which I think would add upto $46 a bottle, was excellent and one of the best value wines I've had on this trip. Both tartares can be had for a starter or a main.
Tempted by the frog's legs which were on special, I instead went for veal liver while the wife had her favorite duck gizzard salad (also available as a starter or main). The liver was perfect, delicious quality French food and the side order of vegetables were beautiful but the wife's plate was a masterpiece of color, arrangement and some of the best confited gizzards we've ate.
We went for the full pudding menu. Chocolate mousse served un-glamorously in a large bowl with biscuits, perfect vanilla classic creme brulee and their take on profiteroles. All excellent and good value.
Our waiter was awesome, ran back and forwards with great attitude.
Four happy diners enjoyed their walk home. Recommended.
Nothing was bad at this restaurant but nothing was exceptional. From the chèvre chaud to the tartare, no one was really impressed by any dish. Our server was friendly and funny but the service was just okay. We had a great time because we were in good company and the restaurant is pretty, but there are so many great gems to discover in Old Quebec that we probably won't be back at this establishment.
This restaurant is no longer called Le Pain Beni. It is now Chez Jules and has a very diffent menu. The decor although apparently new is jarring - in a sea of neutral tiles, the upholstery is a loud very red vinyl. If it had been in velvet, it would have brought a bordello to mind. The food was okay. The fries and desserts - chocolate mousse and creme brûlée -were quite good.
Bel accueil, très bon service attentionné, très bon choix au menu et belle carte des vins. Bravo pour la présentation des plats! Et ils sont très bons. Pour les prix, ils se situent en général entre 30 et 40 dollars le plat principal. L'ambiance marie l'antique et le moderne. C'est agréable.
Mon hésitation pour moyen ou très bon : SACHEZ que le samedi il y a deux services. Nous aurions aimé le savoir plutôt que de se faire dire de partir sur le champ pratiquement une fois l'addition réglée.
Great atmosphere, friendly, welcoming waiter and staff. Very accommodating, and helpful with our lacking French words. Great service, there to help when needed.
Nice location, unique and ambient decor, lighting and music, amazingly delicious food and desert! Great wine and beverage selection.
The food exceeded our expectations, but what made the experience outstanding was the level and quality of service, the friendly, non-intrusive banter and the willingness of the server to make suggestions and share his knowledge with us. For a restaurant located in a busy tourist spot within the old city we were pleasantly surprised with the attention to detail and quality the evening overall.
I went there with my wife while visiting Quebec City. The restaurants is a low keyed bistro and has a nice patio. Most importantly, they serve one of my favorite dishes – Foie Gras. The dishes are the chef innovation and the Foie Gras was served with soft boil egg in a bread bowl, liver mousse and bacon jam – an amazing combination. For the main course I had the Atlantic Halibut - another amazing dish. My wife had the roasted chicken loaf and it was excellent. Don’t miss Le Pain Béni when you are in Quebec City.
We selected Le Pain Beni because of its excellent ratings by most previous diners on TripAdvisor. We had a delightful, delicious meal from a creative menu, thoughtfully presented and served by a friendly attentive waiter. We enjoyed the outside seating bordered by pots of flowers to provide some privacy and distance from the walking crowd, musicians and artists on Rue St. Anne. It was a great find!
Our family of four had a wonderful dinner here at Le Pain Béni! It was our first meal in QC. The restaurant has a very nice ambience with both indoor and outdoor seating. Both of our daughters are allergic to nuts, and our server was very attentive to their needs. It was also one of our daughter's 13th birthday, and she was able to enjoy a delicious flourless and nut free chocolate cake adorned with a sparkler! Merci!
Going for a late night dinner at Le Pain Béni was a highlight of our trip to Quebec City. Even though it was very busy, we were served quickly and the server took the time to make our visit enjoyable. The atmosphere was great: full of energy but not too loud, and such a beautiful spot one couple walking by stopped to take pictures right next to us. From romance to family fun this restaurant is an excellent choice!
