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.

    Our server was exceptional, attentive and friendly, available and knowledgeable. We were celebrating our anniversary and it felt special to have that acknowledged. The food was as delicious and balanced as we remembered. The cocktails were perfect! Thanks for a special meal.

    Joule is our go to for a night out. The quality and consistency is always there and the flavors always pop. We cook a lot at home so it's great to have something interesting and executed well. We'd recommend that the geoduck fried rice state in the description that it is geoduck butter, not actual slices which was disappointing. Easy to put on menu and won't leave folks wanting. Even then, the flavor was fantastic and the service made up for it. Highly recommended.

    We really enjoyed everything we tried at Joule. Delicious cocktails (Jalisco Campfire and the sangria), scallion pancake was great, the smoked tofu and mushrooms were a revelation, short rib steak was superb, as was the steelhead. Looking forward to our next visit already!

    Vacationing from out of state and trying Asian fusion Korean dining. Excellent service and the dishes were out of this world!!!!! We loved the smoked tofu immensely. Yummy rice cakes with chorizo. The mochi tempura cauliflower was great and the mackerel delicious. All thumbs up!!’ We’d come back.

    Small menu was easy to navigate. The trout was very tasty, but most of the other menu items (steak, rice cakes, geoduck fried rice) were not groundbreaking. Was seated at the back of house with limited visibility to enjoy the restaurant ambience.

    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.
