Alas, Oct. 6 was the LAST dinner that they will be serving. After decades of serving very fine food Brasserie Joe closed after Oct. 7th brunch. One can only hope that the replacement restaurant at the Colonnade Hotel will be as good.
As always a memorable experience!
This was the site in one of our favorite extended family meals of all time, and we are so sorry to see it close! Amazing French foods, wines, service, desserts (profiteroles!), and ambience. We always come for a meal here when there is a special occasion or need for one! We will miss you! Our best wishes!
Since this was the 2nd last day for this restaurant, it was quite busy. Food and service was superb as usual.Hoping this space can once again be great!
Disappointing particularly for the fact that a valet from the hotel parked my car and the cost was not even partially covered by the restaurant. I was literally accosted by the hotel's valet and I assumed he was with the restaurant.
Also we were seated so close to another couple that we could hear every word of their quite venomous fight. Food was not good enough to compensate for either event.
We cannot believe this wonderful restaurant is closing.
What a shame they have closed. They most definitely will be missed. A great 20 year run!
I love Brasserie Jo. My favorite restaurant...ever. I cannot recommend it to anyone because by the time you read this review, it will be closed forever. The hotel is apparently going through a redesign of sorts and Brasserie Jo will no longer. Very sad.
Brasserie Jo is a great place for a breakfast meeting. The food is good and the ambience is conducive to a pleasant discussion. Unfortunately, the restaurant will be closing in a few days.
So many great memories here. Thank you Brasserie Jo!! You will be missed!!!
One of our favorite local restaurants. We will miss it when it closes.
This is the last week of Brasserie Jo, they are closing on Oct 6.
So sad the Brasserie Jo is closing. It has always been the “go to” for after theater cocktails or as a recommendation for brunch or dinner if you’re around Copley. Our last meal was as good as the first! Thanks for maintaining quality right up to the end. And our waiter Rich was great!
We will miss B Jo's when it closes ! Nice service, classic French offerings and great desserts
We eat here before concerts at Symphony Hall or Jordan Hall because it’s just a 10-15-minute walk. And they will keep your car during the concert if you valet.
Cocktails are generous and delicious. The food ranges from pretty good to very good. Very good endive salad, sole meunière good, but served on huge bed of rice and spinach...a bit unappetizing. Duck à l’orange was very tasty.
Had a fabulous meal here as I have had through the years. I come for the bistro classics--especially the skate wings with brown butter caper sauce. The profiteroles are to die for! I am so sorry that the restaurant will close forever next month :-(
Shame it’s closing. Wonderful. We’ll miss it - great bartenders, wonderful waiters, especially Ernie.
We all pooped several times after the meal...
Service was always a hit or miss there but the overall experience remains very positive somehow.
We will miss this restaurant. So sad to see it close. Many great meals with friends and family.
Love Brasserie Jo. My wife andI have been coming here for years and we're sad to see it close.
I’ll miss this place!!
Classy French bistro with excellent food, seasoned waiters, quiet ambiance
We have been dining at Jos for more than 20 years. Now they are closing and we are sad. The last day is October 7th. It was perfect for pre theatre and pre symphony.
Great restaurant! Too bad it's closing as is a hidden gem!
Six of us enjoyed a great meal! Our server was excellent, efficient, attentive, pleasant and professional. He helped to make our dining experience special. Also, the boneless duck breast was beautifully done!! Everyone loved their meals.
Our go to for dining prior to concerts at Symphony Hall or Jordan Hall. So sad that it is closing to be “re-imagined”-why, oh why mess with a Boston landmark?!?!?!
Excellent French food and wine in the heart of Boston.
Overall very good. Unfortunately they were out of a couple of our favorites. I did the Salmon, which was very good. I started with the chilled Leek/Potato soup. Very good, but just a bit too thick. Richard had the Onion Tart, which was excellent. For his main, he had the Lemon Sole. It was very good, but the Salt in the coating was a bit excessive. For dessert we split the Profiteroles, always an excellent choice. If they had the Beef Bourguignon or the Skate Wing, the meal would have been exceptional.
Very good, but not super exciting, French food. Service was excellent. Noise level wws also fine, though it was not particularly crowded the Friday evening we were there.
There were not many people in the restaurant when we ate there. There were some shortcomings: one of our party was brought a dish different from the one ordered. Another person ordered the cod beignets, but it was not correctly prepared. Instead of being mashed and blended with other ingredients, it was basically just fried pieces of cod - cod served as fish and chips.
It’s not what I expected. I got roasted chicken which tastes like one that I can get from supermarket. It’s dry and simple. Not a fancy restaurant. If you are looking for French, this is not one of it. I would say this is more American side.
As a Parisian, I can attest that it is an Excellent French brasserie... with some originality
Had never been to this location but enjoyed their Chicago venue in years past. Food was uneven: tasty fish, moderately soggy frites. Waiter forgot our appetizers, apologized and then comped desserts. They certainly tried so “A” for effort. But as this was a special occasion, we would have much preferred it go on without a glitch. Desserts were very good!!
Visited for restaurant week. The Bouillabaisse did not contain lobster as the menu listed. The food overall tasted good and the dessert sampler was great.
The mashed potatoes tasted like they were from a box and peas were not too exciting (tasted like thawed frozen peas). I do not expect to go back
We went for restaurant week, I pick the bouillabase for my dish. This is the first time I had a bouillabase
dish that only had 2 ingredients(mussels & fish). I know it's restaurant week special but a bit disappointed with the dish. We had to spent an extra $30 for parking too. Not worth the trip next time.
We came for the skate wings...only the skate wings as you are the only place in the area to have them.
Our waiter told us they had sold out 30 minutes prior too our order. I was very disappointed. and ordered other "stuff." I asked for a rain check jokingly to our waiter, who was lovely.
love home away from home
The mussels are fantastic
