“Wonderful Food and Atmosphere, Friendly Staff”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

We had a wonderful, relaxed meal. The food was fresh, tasty and presented in a beautiful manner. There was a good variety to choose from on the menu and a good selection of reasonably priced wines. The hostess and waiter visited our table throughout the dinner and were interesting, friendly and helpful. An excellent value and experience.

“Spietzi was delicious; waitstaff sensational”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

What a wonderful dinner! We chose Joel's at random while on a walk in the area. So glad we did! The waitstaff were not overworked, so they had time to make our visit memorable - with conversation, watching the waiters' comedy with one another, questions about the menu, and friendly interaction. They never knew it was our anniversary trip, but they treated us like visiting royalty. I enjoyed a native spietzi (similar to pasta) meal and my spouse enjoyed the tilapia. The wines were very good. We highly recommend an unhurried meal at Joel's.

“Excellent service, excellent food!”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

First of all, the food was great and their Vermicelles was the best I had tried in Lucerne. The service was excellent and the waiters were very attentive and friendly. We only spent 3 days and 2 nights in Lucerne, but we went back to this place twice. That's how much we liked the place.

“Lovely food & great service”
Reviewed November 22, 2011

We saw this restaurant listed in a brochure from the hotel where we were staying.
The service was very attentive, all courses arrived under choches & they were remved simultaneously.
The restaurant's the hotel restuarnt for the Luzernerhof which didn't look that nice, nor did it get a good wrap on tripadvisor.
The waiter checked our enjoyment during every course, along with the maitre'd & owner, so lots of attention.
The food was lovely too - very French & a menu in English.
There was a great ambiance here.
It's about a block back from the lake so not really a tourist mecca.
Very enjoyable expereince & woudl go back.
