Open Table love

 Our diners are singing our praises on Open Table and we are thrilled.

The reviews encompass the food, service and ambiance, all of which make the experience truly worthwhile.

Listen in…

5-stars

“The architectural aspects & furnishings would be more than enough to make the trip from Half Moon Bay [41 miles]. We had the best meal we have had in months.

“It was beautifully quiet and the service was not rushed.” 

“Julia’s food and service is always consistently excellent.  If you haven’t tried Julia’s, you are missing a wonderful experience.”

There you have it folks.  Just a sampling of the positive reviews on Open Table.

We have an array of stunning options to enjoy for Lunch and Dinner.

Peek at a sampling of our delicious offerings here.

Lunch favorites

Our diners are loving Chef Alaun’s latest creations.

Take a peek at some of the favorites gracing our tables in Julia’s.

Hello, asparagus risotto.

IMG_5134

A great, hearty option for Lunch, we are using beautiful, in-season asparagus and porcini mushrooms and then accenting the risotto with parmigiano reggiano.

It is kind of amazing.

Our club sandwich is a favorite of many.  It is a simple and delicious option when you just can’t decide what you would like.

Chef is loading ours up with turkey, bacon and avocado, then the butter lettuce and aioli provide a cool complement to the hearty meat.

A win, win indeed.

Finishing things off with a sweet treat is our strawberries “mi cuit.”  That means half-cooked in French, but is full on delicious.

Ours is accented with vanilla mascarpone chantilly.

The gorgeous Spring days are a great time to get out and try something new.

Come see us for Lunch soon at Julia’s.  An inviting table awaits.

Vegetable love

At Julia’s, we love using what is fresh, in-season and delicious.

The vegetables spanning our Lunch & Dinner menus are a front-runner to showcasing what is amazing around the Bay Area.

Chef Alaun’s creative mastery uses them to highlight all of his courses, but they really shine greatly in our Starters and Main Courses.

Hello beautiful beets.

Not only are they gorgeous, they are firm and delicious.  Suspend any disbelief that you don’t care for beets, and sink your teeth into these.

These are beets to be savored and accented just as our Team does, with cara cara oranges for an unexpected pop of color and toasted almonds for a bit of texture and dimension.

Another gorgeous option for vegetables is the radishes & cucumber salad.

There is a freshness here like no other and crispness to the vegetables that is perfectly satisfying.

Not only it is colorful, it is full of flavor.  It is love at first bite.

Rounding things up, we love asparagus.

With this beautifully done steak, this vegetable pairs perfectly.
