First time at Joso's this past weekend. Loved the ambience, great seafood. Service could have been better as waitresses were very rigid and not very friendly, hosts at the door were great! They were very attentive and took our coats the moment we walked through the door. I didnt give this restaurant an excellent overall review just because of the... More

After a few years in town i have no doubt in rating this add the best seafood & fish restaurant in town. Fish is always fresh, in large choice (particularly if you arrive early) arriving every day by air. Cooking style is simple and tasty as seafood deserves, using typical Mediterranean recipes for appetizers pastas and a prefect donnes from... More

This was our first time visiting this restaurant for a celebration dinner, we made reservations a day before which I would recommend to ensure a timely seating. The service was exceptional, the ambiance was very artistic with many paintings and sculptures to "feed your eye's" and the food was Spectacular. The music was not too loud and was a delightful...

I used to love this place...something very special about it. The atmosphere always brought me back and the calamari was the very best.The last time I had been there was probably 18 years ago. I brought a friend, found it pricey and the food so so and ended up feeling embarrassed by suggesting the restaurant. This many years later, I... More

If fish is your thing, this is your spot. Had a great meal here, only made better by the young woman's help. From menu detail to serving up the fish, the waitress was amazing. all in all, a good experience.

The thing that struck me the most was how close the tables were together. It felt like we were a table of six with the patrons on both sides of us. The restaurant definitely isn't good for a quiet, intimate date. It is also very, very expensive. However, the octopus was excellent. I wouldn't return. It felt that a high-priced... More

The problem with this restaurant is that you'd need a reservation (and you might not want to go in your grubby blue jeans). Otherwise, we'd go there as frequent as we do our neighbourhood restaurants (and we are not in the area). We love this place and have been going literally since it opened some 20-30 years ago. Best seafood... More

The food always tastes burnt. You can charcoal grill food without burning it. Yuck! The food is so mediocre.

We were looking for a wonderful seafood restaurant and this hit the mark. Amazing fresh fish, from around the world. The best calamari! Preparation wonderful. Service was delightful. We had one vegetarian in our group and they made a wonderful vegetarian pasta dish. We ate upstairs, which is a little quieter. Decor is fun and funky!

Yes, we loved this place too. Had a great table for two... went for the grilled octopus and were not disappointed! Loved how they shared the fresh fish of the day and gave detailed descriptions. We also had the stewed veggies- a nice complement. Without a reservation, this was a lovely stop to enjoy the moment. Next time a reservation... More
