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.

    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.

    Our expectations were higher. The service was good. We were however, reminded 4 times, that we could only sit at the table for 1.5 hrs. Once by text, another when we arrived, and twice more by our server. They recommend 3-5 plates for 2 people that they bring out 1 course at a time. After spending $250 for 2 people, I almost wanted to say… we are eating as fast as we can. When we ordered dessert, we had to check the time to make sure we would be allowed. The food flavor was good, but the shrimp was over cooked, the cauliflower was mushy and oily, and we asked for our steak to be medium an it was very rare. The price vs quality of food along with the time clock on our evening, we probably won’t be back.

    We went on a Tuesday night, it was "weekend busy." The food was delicious. Notable standouts are the rice cakes, the green onion potato pancakes, the cauliflower and short rib dinner. At our table we had 3 cocktails, 3 glasses of wine, 2 ginger beers, 2 appetizers, 2 side dishes, and 3 desserts. With tip it was $428 for four people.

    We had a good dinner at Joule. The outdoor patio is one one of the best set-ups I have seen in Seattle due to the open fire pit in the middle of the space and walls enclosing two of the 3 exposed sides of the space. The result is a comfortable (at least in spring) and calm setting. The food was a little hit and miss. We really liked the pancake scallion, tofu, the chinese broccoli, and the "that" meat entree. I, personally, liked the ricke cake with chorizo, but others in my group were not as enthusiastic. On the negative side, we could not cut the coulotte with our beautiful steak knives because it was so tough and chewy. And the mackerel, which is obviouly a salty fish, appeared to get another dose of salt in the kitchen - making it too salty. For desserts, the hummingbird cake was great, the pavlova not so much as it was way too sweet and the consistency seemed a little off. Bottom-line, Joule is good value for the money and seems to be a popular destination for dates.

    2nd time visiting Joule. Liked it a lot more the first time last summer. Dishes lacked texture at times, lack acid, but the worst was a big bowl of Chinese broccoli , thick, undercook , hard stems was the majority and leaves were like leather. This being said, walnut pesto on them was yummy. The flavor was always there in the supporting sauce or add-on condiment. Halibut cooked so perfect , lovely and fresh. But it just did not feel worth it or feel like it was shining. BTW the Joule Box is the most amazing dessert… My companion agreed, would not want to come back… It’s true that short rib is yummy too, but… I hate that it feels like we ordered the “wrong” things. Should be rock star across the menu… I would recommend to others to at least try for themselves… beware of the Chinese broccoli, felt a bit like a giraffe trying to chew and swallow it.

    Went here for mother's day dinner with my parents. The evening could not have been more perfect. We were seated outside so I was a bit worried it was going to be too cold, since my mom had been saying she was chilly the whole visit. However, the fire pit and overhead heating elements did a great job. Our waitress nicely explained that the menu is intended to be explored 'family style' which we knew ahead of time, but we were happy to get her opinion on how many dishes we should order. She suggested 6-8 for the 3 of us. We went with 6 (+2 desserts) and it was a perfect amount of food. She checked in on us regularly without being overbearing. All of the food was phenomenal. We had the scallion pancake, shrimp, spicy rice cakes, chinese broccoli, short rib steak, and halibut. Everything was cooked to perfection. For dessert we got the Joule box and hummingbird cake. My dad said the Joule box was the best dessert he's ever had, and my mom and I devoured the hummingbird cake. Overall an excellent evening and I will 100% be returning, especially any time I have folks visiting from out of town.

    Really enjoyed the food here and the waitstaff is friendly. There is definitely something mismatched with reservation times and the kitchen being in sync. We noticed most of the time we and other tables didn't have food. Lots of people just kind of sitting and staring towards the kitchen waiting for food to come out. We ordered two apps, a rice dish, and three entrees to share - each came out separately, 10-15 minutes apart from each other. We were tempted to order dessert but were kind of done with waiting around and had already been the an hour and half.
