Wasn't sure what to expect in our first visit to Joan given some mixed reviews but we had a great time! Waitresses were very friendly, but you could tell at times they needed extra staff when the restaurant got busier. Regardless we really enjoyed the food, the short rib tortilla, hispy cabbage and lamb shoulder were our faves of the night!

Lovely waiting staff. Bottomless brunch is drinks only and the choice is only Prosecco or mimosas which was a bit disappointing - it wasn’t very clear on website what was included so it is expensive for what it is.

Unfortunately, we didn’t actually get to experience this place. Booked a table for 8pm. We were seated and given menus and then forgotten about. Asked 3 times if we could order and they said they’d send someone over. Got up and left at 8.30pm.

At first, I was a bit reluctant to eat here because I could not imagine how the food would taste like just based on the menu itself, but I was immediately drawn by the 50% off food promotion. However, the food tasted amazing and was presented beautifully. We ordered around 9 small plates between the 4 of us with 2 desserts, and we were full by the end of it. The decor was super chill with the individual booths and moderately lit room that is not too bright but highlights the food brilliantly. It was quite hard to get the attention of the waitresses as they were always at the opposite end of the room, had to hold my hands for awhile before anyone noticed. Overall, a great place to go for a date or some drinks with friends.

Exceptional staff and service. Attentive, friendly and helpful.
Nice ambience with a cool vibe.
Food was banging but fairly sparse. (The spiced tuna tartar and wanton crisps is literally just 3 crips! Be nice to have enough to share between 2 at least.
Biggest let down were the cocktails - avoid! Unless you're into Panda Pops...

The mains were good however the desserts were not great!
Service was ok but not very attentive.

Good food but very small portion. Lovely to sit outside and it was quite quiet and very enjoyable. Service was good and everyone very welcoming.
Food took a while to be served despite being the only table but I appreciate we are all going back to a new routine

It was okay. Food was average, I’ve had better and I’ve had worse. The bathroom was disgustingly dirty and our first wine glasses arrived dirty too. This didn’t give me much faith in the cleanliness of the kitchen and during covid that’s a bit of an issue. Wouldn’t go again.

Everything was alright, but that was it, alright. Just lack of attention from staff, it wasn’t even anywhere near full and you had to get there attention for anything from getting a water refill or ordering. I think if we had just sat there without asking that’s all we would have done all night. We had a selection of small plates which were nice, but nothing that exciting or new. Octopus was tasty but the accompaniment was slightly bland and far too much of it on the plate. Short rib croquettes we’re actually more like arincini with rice inside and again although nice just needed a bit more oomf, I was really hoping for more of a kick from the gochuchang alioli. The mezcal clementine cocktail was the best part, but not good enough to make me want to revisit.

Drinks were nice and so was the food but there just wasn’t enough of it and we still felt hungry. We were seated outside in a shady area which felt chilly and was breezy. Our waiter was attentive and the overall service good. They did get our chip order wrong but quickly rectified the mistake however the replacement portion was so hot I burnt my mouth! May return for drinks but wouldn’t bother going for food unless on a diet!
