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

Lots of very fresh fish and seafood. The tiger prawns were quite delicious, but apparently the steak is the star of the show because my sons said it was the best steak they had ever eaten! (and we eat quite a lot of steak in Texas!) It's a very interesting place with lots of charm. We went for an early... More

My husband and I dined here with another couple in the summer. Three of us ordered fish and one steak. The food was very plain and bland. Just a fish on the plate and nothing else unless you paid extra for a side. The steak was over 50$!! Served without sauce or anything. We had some wine and substandard cocktails... More

Joso's has been around for over 35 years but I just discovered it recently. I am really glad I did. It has a reputation for fresh fish and now I know why. The fish and seafood were really delicious and totally lived up to the reputation. We started with fresh grilled shrimp and fresh grilled calamari. Lightly seasoned and grilled... More

The food was fine and the service was fine ...however it should have been better for the prices they charged.
