New to the city, but my local friend recommended it as the best seafood restaurant in town! He might be right, although the seafood selection was a bit weak for someone coming from a huge seafood selection background. Nevertheless, the risotto was amazing, by far our favorite dish we had there! The service was good, but they forgot it was a special bday dinner and didn’t sing as they had promised.
1st time I went to Joso’s was the year they opened....41 years ago. Loved it then and love it now. Every time I travel back to Toronto I make it a point of eating here. We are never disappointed.
This trip we brought a couple of real foodies with us. They were blown away by everything we had!
Nuff said. If you live here or are just visiting you need to add this to your must do list!
If you like fish, this is a “must visit” in Toronto.
Just fantastic. If you’ve never been, you must go. Try that Leonardo pasta🙌🏻
Excellent service and fresh seafood. Loved that the server was knowledgeable and friendly
What a wonderful place to be! Reasonably priced delicious food!
Delicious grilled fish and seafood expertly prepared , wonderful pasta...friendly, cozy and welcoming with very good service, also a celebrity haunt. Good reasons it’s been popular for over 40 years !
Always spectacular. Never disappoints.
I have been coming to Joso's for years and will continue to do so as long as I am in Toronto! This restaurant takes you on a true Mediterranean culinary experience. The fresh food and fish selection is phenomenal and the decor is nothing like you find anywhere else. You will understand what I mean when you go there LOL. In general the food is absolutely delicious and the wait staff is incredibly attentive, polite and caring. If you've never been here before then you're missing out.
Kim provided a great blend of professional, informed and warm service.
My partner’s shrimp was slightly overdone .
( I know that shrimp has a narrow window of cooking time). It was also a farmed, Vietnam sourced product. Fresh, non- farmed shrimp is still available in the Western Hemisphere.
My Squid pasta needed more personality. Very little flavour.
Had a great time with friends. You really can go wrong, homerun everytime.
Joso's has been a Toronto favorite of ours since it was recommended by a friend several years ago. We ate here for the third time two nights ago and it was as good as ever. Joso's is able to duplicate the gastronomic experience of a seaside restaurant where the fish comes fresh from the boat and is grilled without the need for creative sauces to mask a lack of freshness. In order to pull this off in the heart of an inland city like Toronto requires connections and knowledge of the source fish and the expense of bringing it quickly to the kitchen. Add in its eclectic collection of original art and Joso's keeps us coming back. Yes, you will pay more, but to me, this is what a fine restaurant should be - a place that delivers an experience one cannot get by eating at home.
Food excellent, service excellent and friendly, good advise on food items and wine selection but the bill was steep for what we consumed
Jos's has always been a favorite. Food, scenic and impressive. Well done Joso's. I will be returning.
This has been one of my favorite restaurants in thge world for over 30 years! A must every time I visit Toronto! Best black ink pasta and fresh fish grilled to perfection! A fun night, meeting new people, it's a cosy restaurant with friendly staff and patrons!
Found this place searching online and was thoroughly impressed. Amazing seafood and pasta!
Wonderful dinning experience. Thanks for making our first time special.
Consistently delicious. My favourite restaurant in the city for it’s outstanding food, great service and wonderful atmosphere
Joso's never disappoints. Best fresh seafood in the city and eclectic artwork to enjoy as well.
They forgot about the special event anyways was a great experience
Excellent selection of fresh fish. Done perfectly. Very good service. Expensive but worth the price.
Celebrating our Anniversary we choose Joso's as I had not been - sacrilege, I know! What a wonderful, romantic evening with delicious food, great atmosphere and above-the-bar service. Highly recommended. Thanks to Paul for indulging us in the history of this iconic eatery, very much appreciated. Can't wait to go back!
Decided on Joso’s because it was my wife’s BD and she loves seafood. We where impress with the service, ambiance, the cappuccinos, and the fresh appetizers. My suggestion is to have the fresh fish as it is quite the experience to see how the server debone the dish at your table. I would not recommend the italian style dishes as they are a little lite on the seafood ingredients. The cocktails are creative and it gets festive around 8 ish. Don’t go earlier. Would have loved to see pictures of the food on the menu.
We always are happy with our meals at Joso’s. A very good place for seafood but covers the other bases as well. It’s very comfortable and at such with some fun sexy art around. It’s not white tablecloth waiter in tux fancy, but it’s definitely upscale. I’d always recommend it. It’s consistently excellent
Great menu if you love seafood from around the world. Cozy and unique setting.
We love this colourful and charming restaurant where sometimes fun parties even share their food. The decor is great and the seafood so delicious. One can call ahead and reserve special fish. The person who overseas it all is amazing. Thank you Paul.
Great as always
Very nice fresh sea food. A bit overpriced for the experience. Tables are too close to each other so hard to have a private conversation without the table next to you hearing everything. I found the decor quite dated and out of touch. Service was ok.
Lovely place, food was lovely the price wasn't lovely.
If you like seafood, this is the place. Food and service was excellent. Amazing history. Highly recommend. Will definitely go back.
Great food as always. My kids enjoyed too. Service is a bit slow but we were not hurry so ok. We will go back again for sure.
Josos was great. They made a special dinner extra special. Great management and staff that have so much passion about delivering a great experience. Thank you so much
The food, staff and ambience exceeded my expectations. It was exceptional!!! The staff truly cares about the history of the restaurant and want to ensure that patrons have a memorable dining experience.
Great place. Wonderful food
We usually come here for the grilled calamari and the siciliana. We tried other dishes in the menu and most of them are very good. The fresh grilled fishes tend to be on the expensive side and the bread basket can be better. But all in all a gem of a restaurant that we enjoy coming regularly.
It was all so amazing! Thank you so much for such a pleasant experience and very very delicious food!!
Great place. A little tight. Small tables/seating area. Excellent cutting edge food!
Joso's is a gem. A delightfully whacky interior coupled with wonderful fresh seafood and an attentive staff. Next time we are in Toronto, we will be back.
We really enjoyed our meal at Joso’s. I especially loved the pasta with squid ink, and the calamari.
Crazy art all over every inch of wall makes for a one-of-a-kind atmosphere. Service was great, the waiter’s recommendations were spot on. Good place for fine food and conversation.
I have know about this restaurant for some time but have never had the opportunity to dine there until recently. Should have dined there sooner! We will definitely be back. The restaurant is small but very lively. The service is excellent. The servers are attentive and knowledgeable. The food is outstanding!! Genuine and traditional. Perfectly cooked. Well presented. Good wine list but limited wines by the glass. Overall, an excellent experience in an outstanding restaurant.
