Restaurant Week favorites

Many diners are flocking to Julia’s to experience our amazing food and service.

In the final days of Restaurant Week 2016, we thought it would be perfect to share some of the most popular dishes, just in case you want to slip in to try them.

First up, on the Dinner menu, the beet salad.


We are serving our organic beets roasted and then accented with gorgonzola, hazelnut picada and watercress.

Next up, the beef short rib, accented with braised kale and on the Dinner menu.

“The short rib was delicious! Every bite was flavorful & melted in your mouth.”

Rounding things out on the Lunch & Dinner menu is the spiced walnut cake.


Ours is the perfect ending to your meal with brown butter ice cream.

Don’t miss this great opportunity to try Julia’s our for Restaurant Week 2016.  Things wrap up this Saturday at Dinner time.

Reservations available on Open Table or by calling us at 510.280.1547.

Current favorites

Some delicious items are being enjoyed at Julia’s lately.

Delve on in and read about what our diners are loving most of all.

Hello, cauliflower soup.


Available as a Starter for Lunch, ours is prepared with curried crème fraiche, pickled raisins and croutons.

We think it is kind of perfect for our cold, rainy winter recently.

Next up is our croque monsieur (a delicious ham & cheese sandwich) on the Lunch menu.  

Ours is complete with ham, gruyere cheese, onions and sauce mornay.


Hello yum.

You can’t go wrong choosing this one.

It is a French classic and served on a favorite bread of many – brioche.

Rounding things out on our Dessert menu with our spiced walnut cake.


Ours is nothing short of awesome, with white wine poached pear and brown butter ice cream.

Is your mouth watering yet?

Join us for Lunch or Dinner soon and let us know which one you are dying to try.
