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.

                                                                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.

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!

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.

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.

                                                                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.

Not a fancy restaurant. If you are looking for French, this is not one of it. I would say this is more American side.

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!!

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.

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. Alas, nothing.
