      We stopped at Julian's before heading to the theater. It's a great place for simple foods prepared in an extraordinary way. Friendly service and great food.

      This was the 2nd time dining at Julian, we always agree to try a restaurant twice even if the first experience wasn't ideal. It was a gorgeous Kansas City night to sit on the patio and we were very excited as the night began; however we ended up disappointed. We had a reservation for 8pm (Friday) and apparently that is too late to have your choice of meal for this restaurant. They were out of 3 of the 7 entrees. Service was pretty slow and two of the male employees seemed to be having some tension. The food was fine, nothing spectacular. The sauce for our mushroom dish was clearly made ~ a day or so before (no issues with that) and stored because it came out on our plate still partially solidified. Cocktails were Ok but were different then what was described on the menu. I feel like Julian is not "involved" in the restaurant or have a handle on what's going on when she isn't present. I would be very frustrated if this were my business.

      Simply amazing! Austin was our experience concierge, and was extremely knowledgeable and professional. Everything from the mussels to the salmon deviled eggs, to the trout ... exquisite !! I couldn't be happier that our 1 year anniversary was shared at Julian! Thank you Celine for making our night wonderful, and we will miss Julian for sure! :)

      We had a great first visit to Julian, and are looking forward to trying Chef Tio's other property, The Belfry. Julian closes July 4th, and we understand why. Seating space is at a premium, and parking can get tough. Chef Tio came out and spoke to nearly every table. She told us which dishes would be included on The Belfry menu (the smoked salmon deviled eggs for one!). We were very impressed by her style and her food. My husband and our friend had the Camp Lindo Farms Chicken, and I had the Chef's Vegetarian special, which was a "Southwest Corn Succatash" over Basmati rice. It was fresh, light, and delicious! For dessert we tried the White Peach Upside-down Cake and the butterscotch bread pudding. Both were big hits. Having moved to the area in late 2014, we are sorry we didn't "discover" Julian until now. But we have met Chef Tio and will most definitely follow her on her new adventure.

      Julian's had been on my list for quite some time Enjoyed every bit of the scallops. Cooked just right. Bread pudding sauce was perfect. No rum or lemon in sight. Good caramel topping. Just the way I like. Thanks Chef and Staff
