Reservations seem like a really good idea for this quaint,interestingly decorated restaurant. The salad,with it subtle absolute deliciousness,was better with every bite.Try the Octupus, it is a culinary treat. Check out the guest list photos ... You will be amazed who else has enjoyed this fine cuisine.

Joso's has the best fish I've ever had and I've had fish all over the world. They bring a plate to you at the beginning of your meal with all the fresh fish of that day at market price. The staff is well acquainted with the food and had great recommendations. I had the Branzino and it was fabulous. One... More

The decor of this restaurant is quite unusual and filled with artwork that celebrates the female figure, and it is not always tasteful. The food, however, is truly delicious. The service is very personal and the waitress brought all of the different fish dishes to the table to show us what they had and from whence it came. Fish is... More

well I must say JOSO'S is one of out favorite restaurants in Toronto! I love the way they present their selection or catch of the day! They grill their fish Adriatic style with just a little seasoning and olive oil so one can really appreciate the great taste of the fish. Their assortment of fish is unique from all over... More

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
