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.

Food couldn't have been better really and good selection of wines to compliment. Service was on the whole good.

After passing this restaurant on numerous occasions we decided to give it a try....... Nice modern interior, clean, smart, friendly attentive staff. Varied menu. We both had the burger, which was lovely as cooked medium followed by the platter of mini desserts. It was just nice, good, ok. I can't think of anything bad to say about it but it... More

I took my family there for a birthday meal and the food was truly excellent as was the service. One of the oldest and best restaurants in Crystal Palace well worth a visit. The staff were extremely courteous and did not rush you. Joanna's has a great ambiance.

May i just say that we had dinner here on 24th April and it was very good. However we went back on 5th May and my partner ordered the fish cakes. Lots of bones in the fish cake??? Surely you should put on your menu the caption "May contain bones" no sign of that! So she almost choked due to... More
