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.
Must eat at while in toronto. Unique and one of a kind.
Wonderful atmosphere with fascinating art, fabulous food and wonderful staff. A real gem!
Very tasty food, grilled fish selection and squid ink risotto were good. Decor was interesting. Service was average. However, overall I feel the restaurant is overrated and overpriced.
Way way too expensive. Fish was great but you have to buy the sides separately and the portions are too small. Cheapest wine on the menu is 85$. Appetizer, wine, shared main, one side, one dessert was 350$.
A wonderful culinary experience. Starting with oysters on the half she, and a full sized scorpion fish from the Aegean, to end with cream brulee. Magnificent delight to my taste buds!
Had grilled Dorado with veg ; was outstanding , the wine was great and everyone made us feel at home . I would be only too happy to return to Joso's .
Travel to Toronto and enjoying great restaurants.
Awesome meal. Highly recommend. We loved it!!
Joso’s seafood is incredible! A special place for a special occasion!
Great dinner as part of my mom's weekend visit. The servers are very well informed about the fresh seafood.
Food is good. Like the spaghetti. Rossito was enough for four people. Will come again for sea food since table next to me order the fish and smell so good.
Really wonderful celebrating a birthday here. The food is outstanding
Always good after 20 years of return visits, consistent and superb quality with friendly service.
Went for dads birthday; as always food service is outstanding. They never miss the mark at Joso.
Great service, food was outstanding, Scorpion fish was really as described. Really enjoyed our dinner.
Was here for dinner on June 22nd for a special birthday. We walked in excited for a special night once we were finally seated the Service was absolutely awful from the start. We were laughed at for ordering a lone fish salad as our appetizer. Then once again questioned for our choice of wine. Almost felt as if we didn’t matter because we did not have our faces on the celebrity wall on the inside our business didn’t matter. For service should be the same for all not based on appearance , I have money I could have easily sat there and ordered endless food, but I was completely turned off. Once ours mains were received we were told that our choices were a bit non conventional ( grilled octopus and grilled calamari ). It was a shame that the service was so poor because the food was in all fairness very very good.
Best grilled fish in the city.
Still the best restaurant bar none in Toronto.
Freshest most perfectly cooked seafood. Prepared in the simple fisherman’s style. They are the masters of simplicity. Additionally they have a couple of meat dishes unexpectedly that are excellent. The late Joso and Anjolina created a Toronto institution that is being carried on by Leo, Shirley, Olivia and Marco whose is the third generation chef. Bravo. AH
Celebrated a 50th birthday here.The food, setting and service were fantastic. This is a gem.
