Bearing all the hallmarks of the nouveau bistro—rust-dappled mirrors, tiny tables, insanely good looking diners, a noise level that exceeds a racket —Juliette still manages a few pleasant surprises. The wine list is crammed with bargains (many solid bottles hit the $25 mark), and the kitchen pulls off some pretty neat tricks, too. Seared Cape Cod squid marries fruity-sweet with citrusy-tart, by way of jalapeño and watermelon; steak au poivre showcases the kick of superfresh pink, green and black peppercorns with a knockout veal reduction. But best of all, in warm weather a pretty roofdeck means you can escape the bistro—if you want.

Juliette's is a great little spot off the main strip in Willamsburg off the Bedford Ave. stop. I've been here many times for brunch and dinner. Both were fantastic! It's a perfect setting for a chill brunch with friends or for a relaxing dinner for two.
Every time I've gone it seems the menu changes every so often. But the usual favorites are always on the menu. They do NOT have a separate gluten free menu. However, the staff is very knowledgable and many dishes offer gf supplements and sides.
The ambiance and atmosphere of this restaurant make it special. Whether you're in the downstairs restaurant eating in the "greenhouse" or up stairs on the rooftop you're in for a delightful experience. The upstairs is a separate restaurant and bar than the main floor. So if you're looking for a rooftop evening, you'll need to make a separate reservation. Both get pretty busy so I recommend making a reservation before stopping in.
Generally speaking, I think the brunch food here is a little hit or miss. Plenty of it is boring and not as flavorful as it could be. However, you cannot really beat sitting upstairs on their adorable roof deck with a lamb burger and a cold glass of rose on a balmy evening - still one of my best dining experiences to date! I would say skip the brunch and go for dinner on the roof when it's open - and wait even if it's a long one - it's worth it!
If you love French-inspired cuisine and greenhouses, this is the perfect brunch spot in Williamsburg. The cafe nails typical brunch favorites like Eggs Benedict and Banana Stuffed French Toast—the quiche and the croque monsieur is also delicious. You can eat outside or on the roof deck (instant plus!), but dining indoors is also treat, since there's a sun room with hanging plants and bistro-style tables and chairs. It's perfectly quaint.
The spicy lamb burger is fantastic! It's full of flavor and really hits the spot when you're super hungry. The atmosphere is nice and so is the service.I definitely recommend this place.
Love the place and the vibe. Now they have Happy hour during the week and sometimes they have a DJ. Food is great if u are not vegan or vegetarian, and the cocktails are pretty solid like you are in a speak easy cocktail bar in the city. Service is on and off sometimes but it's a perfect spot and close to the train! Highly recommended.
Despite the fact that everyone else seems to love Juliette in Williamsburg, I just can't get behind it. It has one of those menus where nothing at all seems to jump out at me. But despite that, everything I've ever ordered has been very well cooked, and the place is beautiful, especially downstairs in the room with the hanging green plants. There’s plenty of space and a lovely rooftop. When my mom visited me, we sat right on the edge and people-watched as we ate. To me, there are plenty of places nearby that are a lot more exciting than Juliette.
