Special was pretty good! My lumpia is not as tasty compare to many times I ordered it during the week. I noticed it was quite big and not cut in half and the filings is just okay. We have been a great supporter of this restaurant and maybe Sunday is not a good time to go. Sarah our server was wonderful and very personable young lady.

Met friends for lunch and ate outside. It was nice while sun was out, but got quite chilly when sun moved and our table was not near a heater. You need a heater by the end tables . Food was very good. Would go again but would need to sit near a heater.

Perfect way to spend a birthday Sunday - brunch at JoJo's!
Finally made it back to JoJo's - haven't been in several months - and we were not disappointed. While the menu selection seemed smaller compared to earlier in the year, which is understandable, the food is still spot on - no one at our table was disappointed by their selection.
A big "thank you" to our server Vanessa who made excellent recommendations and ensured we had everything we needed, with the perfectly timed occasional stop-by to make sure we were still good.
I don't typically veer from my glass of wine with a meal, but gave the Fall Sangria a try and it was well worth the change-up. I'm now trying to find that recipe!
As far as COVID compliance goes, we were impressed by what we saw in terms of the efforts by the staff to ensure protocols were followed.

App was never put in, as others had food when we order first. When asked, it was apparent she forgot to put our crab dip order in. Nothing was taken off the bill, however manager came to our table to apologize. Also, it was my GF’s birthday, made that remark when making the reservation on Open Table, yet nothing was done. My chicken Chesapeake was good, however my GF’s pasta dish looked dry and wasn’t good.

POST REVIEW: owner personally reached out to me and apologized for our dining experience on that day and comp’d meal. Perhaps additional COVID procedures caused issues and for that, I can understand. Thank you for responding to my review, I will dine at JoJo’s again.

We came especially to Frederick to eat at Jojoes. the restaurant does not disappoint. We are worried about all the small restaurants in this area and hope for their survival during Covid. We discussed plans for outdoor seating in the winter time with the maître d’. The service was excellent as always and the food was delicious. I have no comments other than keeping our fingers crossed that everything continues to go well

The food was amazing, the service was wonderful, and the tables were spaced safely apart. My wife ordered a sour beer but when she went to order another, they were out. The waitress brought a sample of another beer for her to try and when they tapped another sour beer, brought her a second sample, which she ordered. Very attentive! The red sangria she recommended for me was also delicious. We enjoyed our entire visit.

I ordered the Restaurant Week special but was not pleased with the flavor blends in my beef sandwich. Perhaps if I went here again, I would order from the regular menu. The service was very slow, especially when trying to check out. Ambiance is good, if a bit noisy.

Lovely waitress. Friendly and a hard worker. It was noisy but it was pretty full.
Food was very good but I had to send my pasta back because there was pepper in it and I can’t eat spicy. The waitress apologized and was surprised it was spicy. I was looking forward to it but they substituted the beef dish and it was quite good.

It was the first night of restaurant week, so perhaps it wasn't indicative of a normal night, but I was disappointed in my Steak Frites entree. It was supposed to have chimichurri on it but what I got definitely wasn't that. It was a drizzle of some kind that went nicely with the casear salad that was paired with the steak, but I was really looking forward to the chimichurri that I'm familiar with. Brilliant green and vibrant taste. For the $26 price tag, I was a bit let down. Good ambiance overall, but a bit noisy; again, could've been the restaurant week crowd.

Overall this is one of 2 restaurants I love in downtown Frederick and visit often. Visiting during restaurant week I thought it would be the same amazing food experience. Unfortunately, the beet salad had the beets missing and had to ask for them. Dessert was very bland. Main entree was the star. Wished it had been a 3 for 3. Waitress was also pretty new.
