Consistency good

I have been to Joanna's a number of times - they have a good range of meals on their menu. Good waiting staff and food is cooked to a high standard.

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

Mr B and I fancied a bit of a treat so wandered over to Crystal Palace and tried this restaurant for the first time. Goodness me it was good. Service was friendly and efficient (the whole place feels very slick) but not over the top, and the decor was pleasant and not too trendy. We both had the roast beef... More

Love this place! Been a few times but on the last visit we were blown away by how helpful and attentive the service was. Is great too! Thanks for a lovely evening.

I moved to this area about 2 years ago and have been meaning to eat at Joanna's. Everyone who lives around here mentions it as one of their favourites so I made the effort last night. What a great place! Fantastic decor, super central spot on the Crystal Palace high street, lovely restaurant vibe. They gave us a window seat... More

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
