My husband surprised me and made reservations here for our anniversary. He chose Jolles French Bistro because it had chicken Moroccan Tagine with dried fruits on the menu. My husband knows how much I wanted to try a tagnine meal and while Morocco is on...More

The atmosphere was lovely and authentically French. We needed something special to celebrate the end of a string of stressful night shifts. This was definitely it. My dinner started with the blue cheese flan, which was finished at the table using a torch to make...More

The food was excellent. My husband had salad and I had escargot for appetizers followed by lamb (for him) and I had cassoulet. Everything was wonderful. The host stopped by to chat and we even met Joelle, the chef. Anyone visiting Skaneteles must eat there.

I love Joelle's! The food is fabulous, and the service is perfect. I've been at least 6 or 7 times, and have never had a bad dish, much less meal. The atmosphere is pleasant. The menu is imaginative, but with just enough "old favorites" that...More

After reading an advertisement for Joelles, and passing it everyday on our way to Syracuse, I couldn't miss having Easter Brunch there. It went way beyond our expectations, in food, decor, and service. We will go back on our next trip to Skaneateles.

Joelle's never fails to give a special occasion justice. If you love French cuisine, you will not be disappointed at the well thought out play of flavors on every dish. The chef is very talented, but I will give credit to her passion for creating...More
