The second time I have been here with my friends......it has a very friendly atmosphere and the staff go out of their way to see to your every whim!!!!
Food is great, the Long Island Iced Tea's to die for and everywhere is spotless.
See you next year.
Great for parties too....

“Great SERVICE! Food was average, drinks are good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

We went here for a group dinner, and I think everyone left satisfied. The drinks are very good, and the wine selection is wonderful.
I had a drink that was made with champagne and a German simple syrup. It was quite tasty but $11 a drink can add up fast. I ordered the chicken lettuce wraps which I would NOT RECOMMEND. There is very little chicken in the pre-mixed filling that has more fried dried noodles than anything else! I tried the salmon that my friend had, and would recommend that. The portions are good size, but I'd say the level of service is what is really nice here. VERY tentative and friendly. I can deal with pricey drinks and fried noodles when I get someone that ensures our drinks are full and our plates are cleared.

“A buzzing place with great food and excellent service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

Joeys seems designed to catch the young after office hours crowd, but despite that was very welcoming to our family.

We visited twice in the same week and had an excellent meal both times. Good quality steaks, chicken curry, burgers - all maintained the same high standard. The staff were bubbly, enthusiastic and efficient being fun to chat to without delaying the progress of the meal or drinks.

Special note was understanding how to pour a German wheat beer (weizen) properly and not charging over the odds for it either.

TVs along the wall behind the bar showed various sports channels without being too intrusive, but if you want to be spared them the opposite restaurant section is much quieter and without screens.

This is top of our list for our next Vancouver visit.

Great food and drinks! Smoking hot servers as well. We all ate here for lunch just about every day for a week. We just could not get enough.

“Great food, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2012

A very busy and popular venue for drinks and food. Menu was really good and offered some quite different choices to other places we'd visited on our trip which was quite refreshing. Food was excellent quality. Service was good but lots of different staff looking after you which was a bit strange at times.
