Nestled in the charming Beverly Glen Centre, along historic Mulholland Highway, sits Bistro Jolie. Serving southern French-inspired cuisine accented with California flair and seasonal sensibility, Jolie blends the best of both southern cultures in ambiance, service, cuisine, and style.

Whether you are seeking classic bistro fare such as Steak Frites or something a little more singular like our Fig Leaf Roasted Salmon – Jolie has a unique balance of the familiar and the soon-to-be-discovered.

Immerse yourself in the lush blues of our Riviera-inspired dining room – accented with marble, brass and warm inlaid wood. Relax outside on our heated and covered patio, sit at the chef’s counter and enjoy the show with our open kitchen, as our kitchen team is hard at work cooking your next favorite dish. Or perhaps you would like to grab a seat at our full-service bar, underneath a beautiful, foliage framed skylight – we look forward to having you as our guest and hope to see you back often.

The service was outstanding and overall professional.
The smoked burrata appetizer is delicious, balanced, and a great to start the meal. The steak and frites are the way to go, the tomato linguini is under whelming and heavy on the acid tones. The chicken Meuniere is overly sweet, the lemon preserve on it with the butter tastes more like a lemon meringue than savory or balanced sauce.

I was so happy when this place opened. Its beutifully decorated inside and outside you have a view of the flowers and greens nearby. The waiters are so nice and the menu has a very nice variety of foods. Makes it hard to know what to order. Such and improvement from the previous place!

We’ve eaten at Bistro Jolie a few times and really enjoyed it. We were underwhelmed this time. Our favourite dish was no longer on the menu (the whole fish). The pasta was so dry that we had to ask for more sauce. The Artisan board was ok. The Camembert was hard as a rock. We prefer the early Jolie. The drinks were good.

Disappointed with the food - I had a Niçoise salad that was $22 and it was small and had very little fish. I left hungry. Terrible price to value ratio. Not going back

I've been here before and loved the fresh crunchy baby gem salad with salmon and a delicious dressing. Last time the lettuce was not crunchy at all, salmon was so dry I left half of it and they forgot the artichokes in the salad. I will go back though as it may have been a bad night, but very disappointing as I've been recommending it to everyone.

We live in the neighborhood and had been there several times when first opened, but had a hard time finding choices on the limited menu, although the food was good. This time, we found many more choices. Will definitely go back.

First experience at Jolie and will return. The one negative I have, was that the main entree was served before I had a chance to finish the first course.

The food was good, but the service could have been better. More than once, we had to flag down our server, who walked near our table without looking at us.

Bistro Jolie is a lovely neighborhood spot. The menu is not large, but it has something for everybody, ranging from traditional bistro "steak frites" to market fish to vegetarian dishes. The service is attentive and friendly, as befits a small place tucked into the Beverly glen enclave at the top of the hill. We'll be back . . .

We love this place. The ambiance, service and food are great. Because we come here a lot we are finding the menu a bit limited. We have our favorites but the menu hasn’t changed I a very long time. We would like some new choices.

I wanted so much more for this..drove from not close after reading a good review. They admitted they were understaffed that night; service was slow and server when she was there was okay, but not attentive enough. Starter came out wrong..took long time to get it fixed. 3 of 4 entrees were okay, one order of special was served almost raw (fish). Desserts mediocre, which considering they have a pastry chef was sad. Won't be rushing back

Dinner before the LATines book club meeting at the Skirball center.
I ordered the crab salad. The crab was very fresh and delicate. It was served on a bed of arugula, grapefruit and orange segments with a pink peppercorn dressing. The crab was overpowered by the bitter arugula and bitter grapefruit. It was not an ideal pairing.
Hubby had the linguine with tomato sauce which was as expected. We asked for bread, which was an excellent baguette but came with no butter or olive oil. The service was attentive. A glass of house Chardonnay was $15. The bill for this light meal was $100.
Traffic to get to the restaurant at 5:30 pm was horrific on Mulholland Drive. It took half an hour to go a couple of miles. We probably would not go back.
