Incredibly fresh Italian. Super attentive service. Get the ricotta gnocchi!!!! We ordered everything to share with the table And everything went very well together. The house garlic and chili
Oils were awesome and a great addition.

The firts time we've been a few months ago was very good. We went back last week Itook the same plate which was delicious last time only this time wasnt.

The food was tasteless I don't know if the chef called in sick but it wasnt the same quality food.

Disapointed I will not go again.

As always, the food is outstanding. Unfortunately, I notice that the service was really different. It might be because it was a new team, but they weren't as friendly as before.
Despite this negative point I'll still recommend it for the food.

Great atmosphere, attentive staff, food was just underwhelming. It seems their pizzas are perhaps their specialty and we didn't have so would consider going back for that but not for anything we ate.

Équipe à son démarrage ... menu moyen ... rien d’impressionnant...escalope de veau minuscule, tu sors de là avec ta faim.. bref, j’aurai aimé être allée à un autre resto pour ma date.

I am disappointed by the quality of the food and the ingredients. It tries to be fancy but most of the plates had no taste (except the pasta which were good!)

I guess we were lucky as it was a quiet day, our group had a very nice table with a warm and friendly staff. Food was good, but ambiance of the place is where Joiea Sociale shines. Music in the background was loud enough to not drown out conversing with your colleagues across the table.

Was hunting for an Italian Restaurant in the Old City part of Montreal and picked Joiea Sociale based on the location, previous ratings and the menu. Was very pleased!! The food was excellent and the server was just about perfect. My wife and I had a perfect evening there!

Altough unusually quiet (empty), this made for a wonderful experience as our waiter was quite attentive to our needs. He was knowledgeable, friendy and not afraid to share his "preferences". We had a great meal and a fantastic evening.

He only thing I did not like was that salad on the menu is only salad nothing really in it. I would pass on this item. But the salmon with quinoa was great

Reservation via Opentable worked fine.
Conducted business lunch. Guests appreciated discovering the restaurant.
Nice space between tables. Allows for easy and open business discussion.
Good light from tall windows (cold AC) made it nice on one of Mtls hot, muggy Summer days.

All guests enjoyed their lunch menu.
My recommendation, must try the meat balls. perfect texture and excellent accompanying sauce.

Staff is super helpful, pleasant and discreet (kind not to interrupt discussion, meetings) .

Recommend this spot! PH

I love this place! Service, food, ambiance .. just impeccable. Everything on the menu is simply delicious - their creamy spinach and fontina fritters, their gnocchi al pesto, margherita pizza, mushroom soup, salmone al limone .. gifts to any pallet. And not only do you eat well, everyone in the restaurant makes you feel at home. I would recommend Joeia Sociale to anyone wanting to eat an excellent meal with great service and a cozy ambiance.

What a great place. Feel like it is hidden from a lot of people but it was one of the best meals we’ve had and the service was great. People need to find this place and eat there.

This was our third visit to the restaurant. All three times there were maybe two or three other tables with people and this was on Friday nights. Although we were able to converse nicely at our table without too much noise, it seemed strange that the restaurant was very empty.
Food was good. Pizza was excellent. The food from the kitchen, even though not many clients, came out luke warm.
The spinach Gorgonzola gnocchi was removed from the menu to change it up, but that is a mistake. That dish is outstanding and should be put back. The pesto gnocchi was disappointing and boring.

I like the restaurant and the ambiance and location. I hope things pick up.

24th year in Montreal for the Grand Prix race. First time at Joiea Sociale. Can't wait to make it a second. Hands down the best staff, atmosphere, and food we had the entire weekend. The gentleman that got drinks was so helpful in suggesting a wine and had an awesome personality The caprese salad with burrata was Ah-mazing! Start to finish perfect dining experience.

The restaurant is very nice and our waiter was very friendly. The problem in my opinion was with the food. The appetizer (we had the spinack and mozza fritters) eas really good but the pizzas were just okay and with so much Italian/pizza restaurants in Montreal, I feel like they have to step up their game because they are currently not on the top of my list for good pizza places.

Unfortunately, the temperature of our food and coffee was inconsistent and we were just 3. It was for Mother's Day and my mom's food and coffee were cold. They reacted well and reheated the plate but it was still just warm and not super good due to all that.

Mother’s Day. Beautiful restaurant and ambiance. Great wine list. The food was not very hot- pasta needed to be re-heated. Lacked flavour for the pasta and pizza. Salads were nice.
