We found this place almost by accident, and kept on coming back each night for the of our trip. The owner/ host/ chef/ waiter, Anthony , was super kind and it has been a full experience as you get to actually get a recommendation for a dish from the chef himself. His great love is mushrooms, so if you are... More

We came here somewhat last minute and were seated even though we arrived after their last seating. My wife had a very specific order and the chef accidentally added some items she can't eat. Even though it was almost 9pm, he re-made the entire dish and even came by later to apologize for the error. We really appreciate it! The... More

Been here a couple of times and it's always great. Their winter menu features a delicious soup. Also roasted artichoke appetizer big enough for two. I ordered so much had no room for dessert. Must go back. The atmosphere is comfortable and the service friendly. I appreciate the easy parking too. Oh, last time I was there there weren't enough... More

This is a small vegetarian restaurant which was a little hard to find, but worth it! Since it's so small, it can be a challenge to walk in and be seated, but we lucked out. Hot homemade hard mulled cider was a welcome drink for a chilly evening. We ordered from the weekend specials menu. The roasted vegetables were great... More

Julia's is small and cozy. We had the melt in your mouth artichokes, bbq Seitan and a seasonal tamale pie. Each dish was fabulous. Highly recommended!

Unpretentious, small, family style, all vegetarian/vegan restaurant in PG. The location isn't all that exciting, but the food and the service rock. We had Thanksgiving dinner there which, by the way, was one of the few restaurants open in the area, and we were more than satisfied with the food and service. The restaurant is small but the food is... More

What the site doesn't tell you- it is cash only and you need reservations. They don't answer their phone so it is hard to get a hold of them to get reservations. A bit grumpy. Not many vegetarian choices in town - but you are better going into Carmel and finding restaurants that also offer vegetarians. Won't go back.

One of my fave eateries here with sweet, relaxed atmosphere and staff. Brandi, the friendly waitress and Anthony, the superb chef do a wonderful job to make Julia's a cozy home away from home and the food and service get my five star award 🤗
