This is a small vegetarian restaurant which was a little hard to find, but worth it! Since it's so small, it can be a challenge to walk in and be seated, but we lucked out. Hot homemade hard mulled cider was a welcome drink for a chilly evening. We ordered from the weekend specials menu. The roasted vegetables were great... More

Julia's is small and cozy. We had the melt in your mouth artichokes, bbq Seitan and a seasonal tamale pie. Each dish was fabulous. Highly recommended!

Unpretentious, small, family style, all vegetarian/vegan restaurant in PG. The location isn't all that exciting, but the food and the service rock. We had Thanksgiving dinner there which, by the way, was one of the few restaurants open in the area, and we were more than satisfied with the food and service. The restaurant is small but the food is... More

For those who appreciate fresh veggies, a cozy comfortable atmosphere and crave healthy creative organic meals, this is your spot! We have now dined there three times and love the live entertainment and delicious dining options.

What the site doesn't tell you- it is cash only and you need reservations. They don't answer their phone so it is hard to get a hold of them to get reservations. A bit grumpy. Not many vegetarian choices in town - but you are better going into Carmel and finding restaurants that also offer vegetarians. Won't go back.

One of my fave eateries here with sweet, relaxed atmosphere and staff. Brandi, the friendly waitress and Anthony, the superb chef do a wonderful job to make Julia's a cozy home away from home and the food and service get my five star award 🤗

I had dinner with a group of 10 friends at this restaurant. The food was really excellent! We had soup, artichokes, salad, garlic bread and the vegetable biryani. Everything was so delicious and fresh. It was the first time that I'd ever eaten artichoke that didn't come out of a jar. Man it was delicious! These guys know how to... More

Although enthusiastic meat eaters, Julia's is our favorite restaurant in Pacific Grove. The curry is out of this world. The pizzas and flatbread are amazing. We even bring extra containers to bring an extra serving home with us. You don't have to be a vegetarian to appreciate the layering of flavors.

A real treasure! Hidden back off the road between Safeway & Trader Joe's. We had a great meal on a Saturday night. Place is on the small side and is popular so go early or late to avoid a wait. Service was quick but not rushed. Flat bread/ hummus was warm and tasty. Delicious Italian veggie soup w/ turmeric. I... More
