    It was my daughter’s graduation and the meal was a perfect way to end the day. Our waitress was absolutely first class - couldn’t do enough for us.

    This was an overall exceptional experience. My girlfriend and I came here for our anniversary, and everything from the atmosphere, the service, and the food were all outstanding. We were treated well, had a long and delicious dinner, and I don't know how much lore praise I can give. Overall, it was the perfect highlight to our anniversary.

    Great service and choice of menu. They do a group (8) set menu which was good value just a shame it wasn’t an option for all diners.

    The lamb rump and purple potato was absolutely disgusting !!! I never complain but I had to this time as it was so revolting. The lamb rump was 60% fat and the gloopy potato was foul and had the texture of drying wallpaper paste. My partners vegetarian dish was supposed to be ratatouille but I’m afraid it was very much an egg plant (aubergine for us Brits) salad. The starter was scallops which were nicely cooked but the sauce was bitter and extremely lemony. The almond tart for dessert was lovely though. Sorry to sound so negative but apart from the dessert it was pretty bad and I will never go there again … Natalia the waitress was lovely and if it wasn’t for her we would have left earlier … bless her for being so understanding

    Brasserie Joel is situated in a hotel and quite a few of the diners were residents. It thus felt somewhat impersonal. The menu was standard brasserie fare, with nothing exciting or original, but plenty of tried-and-trusted favourites to choose from. Our waitress was on her first day (which she did apologise for) but spoke virtually no English and didn’t have a clue about the menu, so we could only order by pointing at the menu. When she brought someone to help (a manager I think), he still failed to inform me that the main ingredient of a dish I asked about was cheese (describing it as a Gazpacho). Ultimately the food was well cooked and decently presented, with a tarte tatin being particularly delicious. Next to the restaurant there is a nice bar, which was perfect for a digestif. However, the price, at £90/head (including a £65 bottle of fairly ordinary Pouilly Fume) seemed very steep for a brasserie and there are similar restaurants in the area at a far lower price point.

    The scallops and the beef bourginon were beautiful. The tart Tarim for pudding was good but not as good as the other 2 courses
    Brasserie JoelResponded on April 22, 2024
    Dear KateH, thank you for your feedback. It is great to hear that you loved the food and sorry that the dessert was not as pleasing as the other two courses. I will share your feedback with the team and hope we can welcome you back and pleasingly surprise you next time. Best regards, Marylin
