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.

    Everything was delicious! I love their outdoor seating, it’s pretty warm for how open this to the outside. The “joule box” dessert was amazing.

    The flavors and the food was underwhelming. I wanted more Korean fusion. For example, the coulotte was well-cooked and tasty, but just tasted like a nice steak without the Korean flair that I was wishing. The same for the beef tartare. The kimchi should have been a highlight, but didn’t live up to my expectations.

    My husband and I visited Joules for our 7 year wedding anniversary and from the moment we walked in, to the moment we left, every single person was nothing but kind. The food was delicious and our server was especially sweet. I wish I could remember her name, but she was petite with glasses. I’d come back when visiting Seattle again!

    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.
