Juliette is a french cafe located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. We dined here about a week ago and loved our experience so much, we had to share!
We went in the late afternoon and didn’t have to wait for a table very long, which I feel like never happens in Manhattan (or Williamsburg TBH). The place was busy so the service took a bit of time, but the quality of the food made it totally worth it.
We ordered the Burrata and the French Onion Soup to start. I’m a sucker for burrata so it was clear we needed to order that, and french onion soup is my boyfriend’s favorite, so we got both! 8/10 for both! The soup could’ve been a bit more flavorful (although it was still VERY good), and the burrata could’ve had softer bread. I dislike when bread is too crunchy for a charcuterie-type appetizer.
I ordered the Tuscan Kale Salad with chicken, which was delicious. The kale was not super hard to chew and the dressing was really good. The chicken was a nice addition to make this salad more filling. If you’re more on the hungry side, I’d recommend ordering a protein add-on with this salad because alone it would probably be pretty light. Another aspect about this salad that I really liked was the pomegranate seeds in the salad. This made the salad feel and taste very light, like it’s a salad you’d want to eat in the summertime. For how hot New York has been recently, this salad was nice and refreshing! 9/10!
My boyfriend ordered the Spicy Lamb Burger. I won’t have quite as much to say about this item on the menu because I only tasted it, but my favorite part by far was the aioli! I love a good aioli, and this one was called the harissa aioli – SO good with the fries, or dipping the burger into it! I’m not huge on burgers, so I rate this a 7/10. I wish I liked burgers more so I could give it a better score, but maybe if you like burgers more you’d like it better than I did.
Overall, I give Juliette a 8/10. I think it was a really good meal but it could’ve had faster service (again, I think they were just REALLY busy which is understandable) and obviously I didn’t rate anything as being 10/10 (kind of a hard score to get though). I’d recommend Juliette to a friend if they’re in the area, but I wouldn’t say I’d travel back to Brooklyn just to eat here. If you’d like to check out the rest of their menu, I’ve linked it here!
I hope you enjoyed this post! What are some french restaurants you like in the NYC area?
