We have been going to Joels on the Naas Rd in Dublin for years on a once monthly basis and have never been disapointed with the quality of the food and value for money. The staff are great allways making us feel welcome and went out of their way to make our family occasions special.

Visited Joel's with my wife and mother today. They have a very extensive menu with a choice of European, Asian and Italian dishes. The food was well prepared and very tasty and reasonably priced. Our server was very welcoming, friendly, mannerly and extremely attentive to our needs. The only downside was that we went for an early lunch before the... More

I visited this establishment with a fear of being in-undated with kids as it is listed with children's facilities. There as no need to fear - it was quiet and pleasant and I was not bothered too much at all. I opted for a burger which is not what I would normally go for - but it was the option... More

Myself and my husband went to Joels on a Friday night (they have a ladies night , it has a three course menu for €24.95). We were greeted and seated when we arrived and put at a lovely table away from the main area, which has a kind of food hall appearance. We took our seats a level up from... More

The interior is quite nicely done, the booths are definitely the best place to sit, it has a very American feel to it menu is comprehensive (salads burgers steaks etc) and there is an ok wine selection. It is very much a... More

I went there last night. The service was very quick. So quick the chef was able to prepare mt meal (chicken satay and rice) quicker the bar staff could pour a drink. The meal was obviously precooked then heated in microwave. The taste was at best average to poor. Although only about 1/3full of customes it was very loud.. If... More
