We've been to Joanna's numerous times and have never been disappointed. There's always a great buzz about the place, and we enjoy a drink at the bar before eating. The food is consistently good and so is the service.

We attended today for an anniversary meal, having been to Joanna's many times in the past we were appalled at how the standards have slipped. From the outset there was poor service,I asked for a non alcoholic berry mojito and was served a non alcoholic mojito when I asked the waiter to exchange it as I had ordered a berry... More

I am local and this is always the first choice for special occasions but very poor service at Christmas has kept me away, However, I decided to give this a 2nd change for birthday celebrations with my bestie. New restaurant manager - she's good, new waiters, special shout out to Jason - keep up the good service. Revised shorter menu... More

Loved the staff and the food is really good. Can't believe how patient and observant the staff are, I have to ask for ingredients to be changed and nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and even as the night got busy the staff continued to take note of anything that was needed. Excellent value for money... More

We have been to Joanna's on & off for a number of years but today was definitely an off day for the restaurant. We were invited there as guests by one of our friends and everything started perfectly. We had drinks at the bar before the meal which were great. It all went a bit wrong when we got to... More

The food is great. However, more staff than customers and they just stand around chatting. The front of house service really lets the place down, which is a shame as the food is excellent.
