My favorite place to go for great food and service!
Great ambiance, great food and service. Thank you Joel and Maggie. Southside forever
This place was an amazing experience. The food was outstanding, better and more authentic than any other French food I’ve had in the U.S.. The service was delightful and the ambiance is charming. Highly recommend for any occasion!
The food was overall pretty good, with the exception of the escargots, which were VERY salty.
Steak and salmon were both delicious. Wines were excellent. Service as always was friendly, professional, and not obtrusive. Brought two other couple along. Both are planning to return, as are we.
Took my 11-year old daughter here for Valentines Day. I was a little concerned it wouldn't be kid-friendly, but the servers were so incredibly attentive to us and especially to her! We both loved the pre fix menu. While they were very timely with each course and in checking on our table, we never felt rushed. It was a wonderful experience, and I will definitely be back!
Absolutely fantastic. I love this place.
Absolute favorite restaurant! I have been coming since I was a child to special family events and now celebrate wedding anniversaries with my husband here. The food is sinfully good, I have never had anything that wasn’t amazing. The service and owner are fantastic. The decor and thoughtfulness of every aspect of the restaurant is great. A must go!
Pleasant service, great food for the cost, drinks were to die for, cute restaurant, and ultimately an incredible date night. Will return for many more memories.
Excellent French bistrot-style food, attentive service, lovely ambience!
I love the relaxed feel of the restaurant. The service was well-timed and friendly. The menu for restaurant week was a great variety for those wanting a meat or meatless option. I would love to return to explore more of the menu. The mushroom soup with truffle oil was amazing. The salad was refreshing. The Mussels and sauce they were prepared in were amazing. The steak was very tender. I loved that the cremé brûlée had the right touch of sweetness.
It was my first time here and I was pleasantly surprised with how full we left after enjoying the restaurant week menu options. I recommend the escargot, the sauce it comes in is delicious. The salmon was also excellent. Our server, I think Agnes is her name, was very nice and attentive.
The only downside was another server, who looked like Wario, was very rude to a busser that accidentally dropped silverware. The server yelled at him on the floor and seemed to be agitated with everyone he worked with. It was very unprofessional, I hate to see people treat their co-workers like that.
There was also a really cold draft coming from somewhere, possibly a back door of the restaurant.
Overall my date and I would come here again to enjoy the good food and romantic atmosphere.
First time at Chez Joel with my partner, we were due for a nice date night and decided to give this restaurant a try during Restaurant week. No regrets what so ever, every one was very friendly and helpful. Plus the food was amazing in our opinion. We had the Cornish hen and NY steak strip, as our main course and everything was cooked as asked and came out in a timely fashion. We definitely will be going again.
Fabulous as always! We have been going here for years and it is wonderful every time!
We think of chez Joel always for a special occasion because the food is delicious, the ambience festive and the service very attentive. We’ve never been disappointed.
Even though this is not our immediate neighborhood, we never feel the drive is burdensome. The valet service is efficient and reliable.
