Steakhouse
Joule, the first restaurant from celebrated husband and wife cooking team Rachel Yang and Seif Chirchi, is re-located in October, 2012 to the innovative, newly developed the Fremont Collective in Seattle’s Wallingford/Fremont neighborhood. From its original opening in 2007, Joule has cultivated a loyal dining fan base and captured the attention of an admiring local and national media captivated by the couple’s unique, modern perspective on Korean cuisine. Joule, the mature sibling to Yang and Chirchi’s restaurant, Revel, highlights Korea’s love of beef featuring unconventional cuts accompanied by distinctive and shareable side dishes.

Joule takes reservations for 1.5-2 hour time slots for parties. We do our best to accommodate as many guests as we can so we ask to please be considerate of other diners at the end of your meal. If you feel that your party will require more time please let us know in the notes and we will get back to you with our available accommodations.

    Joule continues to be one of my favorite restaurants in Seattle. One of their specials last night, which was like a mini squash omelette, hit it out of the park. Def 10/10 recommend this place!

    Dishes we had were quite good. Service very good. The main issue is the wait, extremely long when not busy and two dishes which takes very little time to cook.

    The meal was excellent, from starters to rice cakes to 'main courses', universally good. The ribeye (I think), especially. And the service was also really good. I'm probably a bit unfair, but we are indoors and it was more than warm, it was hot. Of purse it was a real

    We pretty much ate everything on the menu. Every single person from bartender, server, to the host and cooks were all just amazing people, they let us pick but guided us through the items on the menu. Drinks were perfect for the food and the team was attentive with reorders. I just can’t say enough about the staff and how they really set the vibe that matched this amazing food. Don’t think, just make the reservation, let them take you on a food journey! Also get the Halibut.

    It's hard to find food this unique, well-executed, and special in asuch a fun but chill ambiance. The servie was personal and very informed. The cocktails are pricey (although equivalent to everywhere in Seattle these days) but like everything else on the menu, is a work of art using unique ingredients. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Cant believe I havent been here in 2 years, 8its better than ever and the patio is lovely.

    I’m always struck by how creative the food is. I brought some friends this time and they too were really happy with their food. I don’t eat meat, they do; they really enjoyed what they ordered. I had the mackerel which I’ve had before and it’s spectacular. And I love that they use fish like mackerel because it’s unusual and a lot of people see it as a lesser fish. Everything is always good and some things are spectacular. The waitress said they would stagger bringing out the food and they didn’t and I kind of wish they would have, but it was fine. Because it’s really just about the food for me.

    We had a truly great time at Joule. It was our first visit, and we went to celebrate my husband. I was just so impressed with the service. They texted earlier in the day to confirm our reservation, and said they were excited to be celebrating his birthday. I thought that was such a nice touch. Our server was super fun and very cool, and even other servers stopped by to wish him a happy birthday. The little birthday cake and candle were also really fun! But the highlight was all the amazing food. Every dish was so very flavorful, and each in its own unique way. The shrimp appetizer was supreme, and we focused on all the meats, trying the short rib, the rib eye, and the burger, each of which was top notch, perfectly cooked, and accompanied by a different delicious sauce. Hummingbird cake dessert was also so rich and decadent. Can't recommend this place enough, was and truly great date night spot.

    Excellent, excellent food and service! Probably our best meal in the Seattle area since moving here from the NY metro area. Birthday dinner so special occasion. We got the rice cakes with chorizo, the walnut broccoli and could have stopped right there, both were just so delicious. We also ordered the halibut and mackerel, both so yummy but the halibut was preferred. Can we go back tomorrow?? Just the best!

    Joule never disappoints, although prepare to separate with some cash. I have never been let down by the food. For example, Joule is one of very few places where you can get a cod or a halibut that is cooked to perfection (most overcook substantially). There is also great variety for the vegetarian crowd.
