My parents came to visit for the weekend and after trying to reserve a meal at Joanna's on their previous visit were excited to try it. We ate at 8pm, disappointingly for this bring comparatively early in the evening we were informed the venison had ran out when 2 of the party tried to order. The next disappointment was when...

After a holiday in the Caribbean for the New Year, coming back to winter hotel holds little appeal. However, returning to the warming atmosphere, excellent service and delicious food, I feel like I've had a big hug and welcome home from Joanna's after dining there this evening. I love the crab on toast starter which I have selected many times... More

We arrived early evening and was greeted very genuinely and made to feel welcome. The waitress took our jackets and we were seated in very comfortable seats. We were given a special menu where a starter and main were a set price which was very reasonable. Not being a fan of set menus I had a look and everything on... More

Went here for a birthday meal and reserved the private booth. Outstanding menu, top class service and reasonable pricing. This truly is a little gem of a place, nothing compares to this locally and would easily go again!

My wife, our friends, acquaintances and I have been dining at this establishment for over 19 years. It is a stylish, but not lavish English restaurant serving a fusion of foods from around the World. The atmosphere relaxed and casual, but very stylish. The menu changes often but intelligently they keep their most popular dishes. Anything you eat here will... More

Been coming to Joanna's now and again for about 15 years - it is consistently and reliably good. The service is excellent. Great cocktails and wine list. Good choices for Vegetarian and meat eaters alike. It costs less than you think but still feels a bit of a treat! Booking ahead is advisable. We ordered after dinner drinks and only... More

Went to Joanna's for the first time in about two years, and was pleased to see that they have kept up to their previous standards. The food was really good, and the service was excellent. Highly recommended!

And it didn't disappoint! We booked Joanna's for 6 of us on a suggestion from the wife as we used to be frequent visitors when living in Sydenham. We booked the booth for some privacy for the 6 of us (maximum the booth can take) and turned up Saturday 17th Jan with some trepidation as our memories were of very... More

A brilliant evening had at Joanna's. The service was absolutely superb - wine constantly kept topped up! -and the food was just as great. Very friendly bar staff and waiters. A really great restaurant in the heart of Crystal Palace. Will be visiting again!

Not living that close, I haven't been here for years. We rang an hour before arriving and were lucky to get a table. My memories did not deceive me - the four of us all enjoyed our meal. My pork belly was delicious and the crackling excellent. It was the chocolate brownies I remembered most and I wasn't disappointed. Fabulous!
