Went with a friend who chose above many other excellent options. There was a bit of a snafu on our reservation, not time; but a special table had been promised...obviously the table request failed to be written down. However once that glitch passed the night was perfect, well beyond expectations...food, presentation, staff, you name it.

Yes, it expensive - but you get what you pay for!!! (1) Splurge and get cheese tray (2) the menu has many items, try something new - great place to be adventurous (everything I've ever ordered exceeds my expectations), (3) don't be alarmed if you suddenly realize you are licking you fingers (or plate), this is a temporary reaction to...

Trout was delicious. No bones. Chicken and risotto was wonderful, best my daughter has ever had. Staff was very nice and service was excellent. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes fine dining and deliciously, locally grown food.

As many places in North Carolina, Joy strives to use local, organic ingredients in delicious ways. My party of three was not disappointed but in fact enthused by the well-created meals. Service was spot-on even though we showed up on a busy night without reservations. My only drawback is I wish there were at least one more vegetarian option. If... More

Very nice food and wait staff. There is also outdoor seating. The restaurant sits amid some of the major hotels so it is close.

This restaurant is a must! It is the only restaurant where I will order a steak. They always have new drinks to order, and the staff is very friendly!

My wife and I were visiting our great friends in Purlear, NC and they suggested we go to Joy Bistro for our anniversary dinner, what a great choice. The food was absolutely wonderful and the service was great. I actually told the chef that his scallops were the best I had ever had, and we live in Miami, Fl. If... More
