Staff was amazing the second time around. Very welcoming and made sure all our needs were met.

The portion size during happy hour exceeded my expectations. They were pretty big portions.

I ordered the prime steak and had to spit out half of it as it was not eatable. It also took quite some time for us to get the drinks we had ordered.

We had a few hiccups with our order but the staff where so responsive and apologetic. As a result what could have been an awfull dining experience, ended up being an exceptional one due to the server we had. I wish I could remember her name as she truly went above and beyond and had an amazing attitude to go along with it.

Very tasty. Nice atmosphere! We enjoyed cauliflower tacos and the salad with shrimp and sprouts was wonderful. The Maitre’d Mathew ( if I recall correctly) was very friendly and we enjoyed talking to him. The waitress inadvertently brought us fish tacos and immediately replaced them with the cauliflower tacos and did not charge us for the tacos at all. GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE! .

A mistake was made where our mains came right after the appetizers were brought to our table. We did not complain at all but I think one of the waitresses realized that and 5 minutes later the manager was at our table to advise us that the appetizers will be complimentary. Wow ... that is service.

I arrived on time for the hostess to tell me she made a mistake and gave my table away. I was hosting a business lunch with someone who flew in from NYC. Very embarrassing. Instead of saying “but we have another table for you” then simply just said we gave your reservation away. I literally had to say “I’m sure you can find me another table, I’ll wait here.” To which she replied “it’s going to be about 30 mins.” NOT ACCEPTABLE. It was noon and there was a line up of people behind me with resos as well waiting to be seated. I literally had to insist on getting a table. The crazy thing is I’m a regular, my partner is also a regular and so are all our friends. Because I’m a regular, tip generously and generally really sweet to all the servers and staff they think they can pull this crap. Cactus will be getting our business across the street.

Waitress and bartender were great. Lucked out with a happy hour at the bar before our table was ready. Once we got to the table, the drinks took awhile to come along with our food. Maybe peak dinner rush? Would go again. Could have just been an off night

Warm welcome, however, they seemed to kiss checking me in on OpenTable as the hostess became somewhat flustered when she saw one of our party was in a wheelchair. She excused herself to set up our table and we were seated promptly (although I had to correct the no-show the next day). Music was deafening, but they seemed to turn the volume down about 45 minutes into the meal as the restaurant emptied.
Since this is a ‘test kitchen’, the menu is very extensive (about 10 dishes not yet on other locations’ menus), and rather than separate menus for vegetarian and gluten free, it’s all side by side. Wednesday’s are half price wine bottles, and we enjoyed a Laughingstock Portfolio blend. Their Supersonic G&T is a specialty.
The sushi, salads, veggie burger sliders and cauliflower tacos were perfect, and a baked to order rustic apple pie with maple ice cream was the perfect end to a meal with US visitors (although the server raved about the banana bread pudding being back for a limited time)!
Always a great meal at a fair price with excellent service.

Overall it was good. The server did forget my drink but he was able to help me out.
The restaurant was able to accommodate my reservation a day before when the other restaurants didn't accept reservations.
I will come back again in the future.

We were on an hour lunch break. The restaurant was very busy. The server showed up at our table within moments of our being seated and she was friendly and funny. Food was arrived at our table very quickly and was hot and tasty when it arrive. It was rather noisy in there everyone having to speak extra loud to be heard.

Had to wait 20+ minutes past the reservation time as host forgot about us. The lobster Mac and cheese had no lobster in it. Service staff forgot about us for a long time. Turned the heat off so we’re freezing cold and had to ask for it to be turned back on. Disappointing experience but only in town for a couple days so made the most of it.

Food was fine, but was really unimpressed with front end service. I had a reservation and my guest had already arrived, but the girl at the front told me there was no reservation at all. I also felt unimportant to the front desk. Most of the lunch rush was older and the front desk was dismissive to my questions.

It was our first visit to the restaurant. I likely would choose the other Joey's over this one in the future as I felt this one was more casual an environment than the other Joey's downtown. However, as a pre-game dinner location it is closer to the skytrain so for that it was ok.

I felt that this restaurant caters to "men" instead of all. The restaurant was full of men, only two women. I was there with another woman and we were ignored, where the men next to us and all around were "doted" upon. We were asked to sit in the wine room....is this where they put all the women? Out of sight? I felt like I was treated as a minority, not as a paying patron. Don't know if I'll go back

I love Joey's! My boyfriend and I went there for Valentines Day. The food was great as usual, the drinks were tasty and we even got complimentary champagne and chocolate covered strawberries for Valentines Day. The service was excellent. Overall it was a great experience. Thanks!
