One of the absolute best restaurants in the city. We have been coming here for years for everything from birthdays to anniversaries and amazing dinners out with friends. The seafood and squid ink risotto are incredible. They are huge and need to be shared by 4-6 people or just get one for 2 people and take him the left overs!! Salads, fresh fish, calimari etc there is nothing on the menu that isn't amazing. Thr bring out a huge dish with all of the fresh fish and seafood for the night and discribe the flavours and areas the fish is from. The decor is fun and there lots to look at. They go all out for birthdays and the desserts are incredible escpecially the crepes and terimisu.

Great atmosphere, the service is outstanding, in addition to the Dalmatian style preperation of the seafood this is a winning combination!
Personally, I’m happy that they serve a good slivovitza, which is oh so nice before a good meal, and what impressed me more so was the background Dalmatian music. Simply a place with an urban vibe where one can equally enjoy an afternoon or evening!

Joso's remains one of my favourite restaurants. The day's catch is brought to you on a platter and the server explains the different fish being offered that day. All the fish is simply grilled and served whole. We had butterflied sardines. Excellent. A must dish is the squid ink risotto nero. It is unique in the city. The rice is cooked on the al dente side so there is a nice crunch to it. The taste is exquisite. Our go-to dish every time we visit.

Everything was fine but expected much more for how much it was. Would rather spend the same money at Estia or Scaramouche in the same area. Service was good, liked the wine selection.

Haven't been for 10 years and nothing has changed (in a good way).. everything is fabulous! Food, decor/art (risque which I LOVE!), Service are all a 10! I love that music gets a bit loud too...I don't love bars or clubs so this is a fine balance of dinner w fun.. Keep up the fabulous work guys!

Our first time there. I could tell many patrons were regulars. This was probably one of the top meals I have ever eaten at a restaurant. Grilled Octopus, squid ink spaghettini and the most amazing grilled spigola fish I have ever eaten. Service was top notch! Thank you Joso’s- we will be back again for sure!

Shared seabream, mussels, stewed veg and jasmine rice. Everything super fresh and cooked perfectly. Classic vanilla creme brûlée to wash it down was the perfect finishing touch. The whole experience was well done. Not really g-rated scenery though!

Haven’t been there in over 4o years. Still seems popular. Visually, as in my previous visit...quite the experience. Choices of fresh fish and seafood impressive. However, food and wine and cocktails are overpriced. Main courses are simply the main course, all accompaniments are extra. Attentive service ; and a nice evening; but with the number of choices of fine dining spots in Toronto, not good value.
