“Yummy Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

We've eaten at Joey Kelowna several times, and each time we are pleased. The decor is very contemporary, but nicely understated. The wait staff is all young and female and wearing black cocktail dresses.They remind me of the Robert Palmer video with the women playing guitars and dressed in black cocktail dresses. Anyway, we have been happy with the table service each time we've been there.
The food is yummy. In particular, the Tandoori Chicken Flatbread is heavenly, with a bouquet of different flavors. It may not appeal to those with a more bland palate but for those who love interesting and new flavors, you've got to try it.
Also, the French Dip. The beef is cooked over a 17-hour period and melts in your mouth. My husband orders this every time we go there.
The Chicken Souvlaki is delicious and really flavorful, but the spicing may be hard on sensitive tummies. If you don't have a sensitive tummy, this is a great choice.
The California Chicken Club is really good, but I found this dish to be oily and the flavor, while delicious, becomes tiresome after several bites. This sounds strange, but it's true nonetheless.
Coffee is served on a lovely little tray with a tiny creamer - very nice touch.
All in all, we will continue to go to Joey's, which although a bit more expensive, is definitely worth the extra cost!

“Average place.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

The deck is very nice, with booths available outside. A nice touch. Service is okay with very young servers trying to get it right. Food inconsistent which is where my score drops.

“Great food and Exceptional Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

From the appies to the main courses quality food, comfortable atmosphere and even better staff. Well managed and a real treat to experience. And as far as allergies they make a real effort to address everyones concerns. Just mention your allergy and you will soon have the head chef out to visit you. Awesome! Kelowna in the summer is a great place to visit and always busy. Here you will find great outdoor, covered seating. Misters run in the really hot weather. But away from the town cneter.

“Very tasty food and comfy seats”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014

We were recommended this as it was just across the road from our hotel. Was busy when we arrived and people were waiting. The main lady seating tables dealt with a table of 6 in front of us, then spoke to us and then passed us on to someone else - not entirely sure the reason for this but not a great example of customer service. We didn't mind where our table was, patio was full, bar sounded noisy so preferred the dining room ( as they called it).
Served by a young man and very attentive and chatty too - great customer service Griffin!
Waitresses walking around in grey dresses and heels that they could barely walk in.
Food very tasty, chicken and bacon sandwich/toasted burger seeded bun and hand pressed burger with all the groceries as they call it, a bit too much lettuce for me - 4 big leavesm chose yam fries and very tasty.
Overall enjoyed our fast delivered food as tasty and hot.
