I had read about Juliette before visiting Potsdam and was expecting it to be a very fine restaurant, however I was a bit disappointed when I ate there. The restaurant itself is very small and cramped, and the menu was not great. There were two tasting courses in addition to some a la carte items, but I had catfish that was a little burnt and not very flavorful. The beef that my partner ordered had a lot of fat on it, and the portions were extremely small for the price. The best thing we had was an amuse bouche with a delicious horseradish foam, but everything else was lackluster. Even the desserts were not that good.

We have been at the Juliette for dinner. It is one of the few exclusive places in Potsdam where to go for a special occasion. The menu offers high class french cuisine. They offer clomplete menus with several courses. The portions are reasonable, so that you can enjoy every course without overindulging. However, come hungry! Beside the orderes dishes, you will get an amuse as greeting from the kitchen and some sweet bites when you order the check.
The service (especially the waitress) could be friendlier and more attentive for such a high class restaurant. She didn't bring us to our table, didn't take our coats and forgot to ask if we would care for a bottle of water with the wine - even though the restaurant wasn't crowded at all.
But..when in Potsdam again, I would come again. Especially for the delicious dessert.

We were looking to have a sit down dinner at a nice restaurant since we were away from home on Thanksgiving Day. Looking inside this restaurant we thought we have found our place. The menu sounded reasonably priced.

As we came in they took our coats and put them away, out of sight. Menus arrived and the story was different. The carte posted on the window was just a teaser. Bottom line, dinner for two was going to cost us well over 200 euros. No wonder there were only 3 tables occupied upper and lower level.

We decided that we were just going to have an appetizer and a carbonated water. The check for the two of us was 69 euros.

Service was pathetic. Given that there only 3 tables, we could not understand were the waiters went. Every step was painful and at the end were glad we decided not to have dinner so we did not have to put up their mediocre service.

By the way, if you need to use the restrooms, beware, you will be going out of the restaurant thru a side door to a dark scary alley. A very strange situation.

There was no attempt to please, no smiles, perfunctory.

Our recent birthday dinner at this restaurant was a very pleasant experience.
The setting of the tables is in a way that the various parties do not disturb each other.
The menu is small but offers sufficient variety to please most tastes and everything is freshly prepared - at least that was our impression.
Service was very attentive and the lady had good recommendations also for wine.
All in all it was a very positive experience in the middle of Potsdam and we can highly recommend this place for a delightful dinner in a charmin athmospehere (no schicky-micky!)
