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.

I dinned several times at Joso's and was never disappointed. Like others here say, it is on a pricy side of dinning experiences, but if you are not on a budget and wish to enjoy a special evening, head off to Joso's with no second thoughts. I wholeheartedly recommend the grilled octopus. It is the best thing you'll ever have.... More

Our visit to this restaurant. Everything was top drawer, staff, restaurant it self and of course the food. The food was very fresh and wonderfully prepared and served on warm plates. It was a birthday celebration for me. The staff sang THE song and provided the table with a cake complete with candle! Thank you We will be back
