I'd never been to Crystal Palace before so when we were looking for somewhere to eat, this restaurant stood out from the crowd of pubs and other eateries in the road. We didn't have a reservation but were able to get a table for two quite easily, though shortly afterwards, the restaurant was completely full. We had starters then I... More

We had to wait a couple of minuets for our booked table which worked to our advantage as we got to sit at the bar and take a look round the place. The ambience throughout our meal was exceptional and couldn't be faulted in any way, as was the service. I had chargrilled squid & chorizo salad which was very... More

We have been coming to Joanna's for well over 15 years and until recently it has been our favourite local restaurant . We visited again last week and whilst the food was up to its usual high standard the service was pretty poor. We had to ask 3 times for our wine glasses to be topped up while the staff... More

We booked this restaurant as it had good reviews but we're disappointed. The service was abrupt and unhelpful and felt rushed. Food was average and menu seemed limited with no specials for Easter sunday. Tap water was rationed and warm. Our coats were taken when we went in and when we left we couldn't find them. All in all a... More

Have been coming to Joanna's on a regular basis for many many years so know what to expect, which is generally good quality food. This visit to Joanne's was for a special occasion, which was a bon voyage meal for my eldest daughter as she headed to Asia for 3 months for work and a bit of travel. So we... More

My family loves Joanna's and will return again and again; the tantalising choice of food, the cocktails, the friendly and smiling welcome, the attentive service, the wonderful ambience and the maitre de, keeping everything ship-shape and running so smoothly! I'm sure we'll be back again soon.

A pleasant meal somewhat spoiled by heavy handed use of flavourings in the kitchen. Salmon with horseradish starter would be more accurately described as horseradish with salmon. So much strong horseradish that the salmon couldn't be tasted. Spicy spatchcock chicken was very good but again the description underplays the amount of flavourings used - hot cajun chicken would have been... More
