“Interesting and Tasty”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

I like this place because they offer vegetarian/vegan food as well as goodies for the meat eaters. I have a few vegan friends and relatives and Julian's is a great place to bring visitors for brunch. I usually get something from the specials and a bloody mary. This isn't a quick meal. You need to be willing to take a little extra time. The service has been very good for most of my visits... the only hiccup was the last time we ate there. The waitress was polite but not necessarily friendly, and a bit uninformative. When I inquired about not getting toast, she said "oh, you didn't ask for it." (even though I have never NOT gotten toast) and she failed to mention that the substitution my husband made would be an extra $3. It wasn't a big deal, but it was a little weird since we're used to friendly helpful service. I will still continue to eat here, since I figure the last experience was probably just an off-day for our server.

“Comfortable, Good”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

Food was fine, and the bistro has a nice roomy feel. Service was good. We had two apps and shared an entree. One of the apps was very good and the rest just ordinary. Cool bathroom! Has a hipster feel like the old Leo's in Providence.

“Funky on Federal Hill”
Reviewed 24 September 2013 via mobile

Great place for breakfast/brunch. Eclectic decor, neighborhood eatery and bar. The food is excellent and creative. Very fresh and tasty. Worth a visit when you're in town and want a breakfast that's not available in every little shop.
Very generous portions!
We'll be back!

“Amazing Beer Dinner!”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

We were in town for a Lovecraft convention, and decided to stay an extra day just to go to the NecrinomiCon beer dinner at Julian's. I'm so glad we did! The food was creative and fun while still being accessible and non-pretentious, and the beer pairings (plus a cocktail and a whiskey) were outstanding. Very friendly crowd as well. We wanted to go back for brunch the next day on the way out of town, but sadly didn't rouse ourselves in time.

“Serious competition for Nick's”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

We once again (fourth try) could not get into Nick's for breakfast - just a few blocks away - as a 1-hour wait was not going to happen.

We had read good reviews on Julian's - we concur.

Friendly and fast service in spite of a huge crowd. We waited maybe 10 minutes and had a sidewalk table. The inside would best be described as "eclectic".

We had juice and coffee, scrambled egg pizza, an omelette, and eggs with outstanding hash. Hot, tasty, and large portions. We will be back.
