Very disappointed. Have not been to
Joso’s for over 10 years.
Biggest problem was attitude of the server.
Very snobbish from the start. Frankly displaying the fish to the the table beside us together with us was inappropriate. At least she should have asked if we minded.

She did warm up, but by then it was too late.

The food was outstanding. My husband and I weren’t sure what to order. Our server was very helpful in helping us out together a mixed grill so we could try a few different things. We had a salad to go with our seafood and it was perfectly satisfying without being too filling. We enjoyed the look and feel of the space but mostly the food! Will go again with friends and family!

I came here for the fish many times. But this time the service ruin the whole experience. The tall and skinny server lose patience when she found we need couple more minutes to decide what to get. After we ordered, two of us each get a fish, one get a joso noodle, she said "is that it?". and we explained we just got a late lunch,but reaervation at Joso is at 5:30pm and it's the only time we could find. we were full but still wanted to come to Joso. And she said "I am used to ppl ordering A LOT more." we understand that this (one dish for each person) might be less than what other ppl ordered, but how can a server judge the customers like this? We love the fish here but not sure after this experience, we will still come back.

Spectacular meal. I hadn't been for a few years and had forgotten how wonderful this restaurant is. The ambience is charming and very authentic. The only time I have eaten fish and seafood so delicious was on the Mediterranean shores - completely delicious. Pleasant buzz to the room but easy to have a good chat. Wait staff were attentive. A fabulous meal and I will go back much more often!

Servers know exactly what they are doing, and have recommendations at the ready for those who, like us, were first time diners and who didn't know what to order :) This place has an awesome history, and all the artwork (which is part of the history) is beautiful and really makes this place special. Loved how the menu was very fluid - you could add on little things or change whatever you needed to make your meal your own. Awesome!
