Delicious food. We just loved the tuna tartare in lettuce leaf appetizer, the Wagu beef, brussel sprouts, and dessert (warm chocolate cake and pear/sour cherry crumble) -- honestly everything was really good but those were the standouts. We had a 7:30 reservation (Sunday) made through open table, seated on time. The place was full when we arrived and full when we left with a low key, chic crowd. Service was SO attentive and the young, attractive waitstaff were professional and thoughtful. I wish the room was warmer and more elegant. The decor is kind of cold and Swedish, no tableclothes and the cafe tables are small which gives it a more relaxed vibe. It feels intimate, but the townhouse location begs for warmth and elegance. The "downtown" and casual vibe does not match the posh venue, superb food and service -- So good that it deserves to feel more luxurious.

Exceptional food; excellent, friendly and cheerful service; beautiful, comfortable surroundings. We especially liked being seated upstairs where there are tables for larger groups (6 or so), and the atmosphere is quieter and the space seems less energized. We loved the warm seafood salad with avacado; the kale and broccoli salad; the sea bass; the Maine Lobster; and butterscotch dessert! We had a mini family reunion with siblings for a birthday, and the staff was very supportive and helpful.

Part of JoJo from the get go and have been frequenting the place through all its changes. Prices do not match the ambience paper placemats and decor change the advantage of being in a townhouse at that address. Sneakers and dress have downplayed a menu of quality. Noise level was a racket and although food was excellent, I would not return as I found it had lost its charm.

I was so happy to discover that Jojo had finally reopened and invited a colleague for a business dinner. I was disappointed to find that what I thought of as the warm and inviting atmosphere of the old Jojo seems to have disappeared. A lot of hard surfaces have made it a lot noisier. The food is still first rate and service was good, so I will probably keep trying it--it was the best place in my neighbourhood and hope it will continue to be.

Food perfectly prepared, delicious and fun. Small menu for both food and wine but enough to select from for every palate. Love the updated, lighter decor. Downstairs a bit casual, will try the upstairs for a cozier feel. Gets noisy at peak hours but that’s part of the fun. Only piece that needs work is the service. Our server was young and inexperienced in both her approach and manner. Would be great to add training on the nuances of good service. (eg...Don’t remove 1bread plate from table because 1of 2people do not initially order a piece. They may change mind later or share with partner or ask for some later or use it as a side plate. Select proper size wine glass for the type of wine and don’t be giggling and distracted with your serving peers while you are opening a fine bottle of wine. )

The staff went out of their way to be pleasant, but after waiting 15 minutes for a reserved table, there was a long wait for ordering, and then a very long wait for the food, which was quite nice. There was a cold draft blowing over me throughout, apparently made worse whenever the door to the restaurant was opened. I was never given the bread that I saw on other tables. Overall, not an experience I want to repeat.

The new JoJo is superb! The interior renovation is clean, crisp, and well lighted--a big improvement. The menu is also excellent, yet spare and simple. Our dinners (salmon and chicken) were cooked to perfection and the preparations were both interesting and tasty. Our server steered us to the crab dumplings, which was a great call; the 6-minute egg and salad was also delicious. We don't typically order dessert, but their apple and sour cherry crumble with almond ice cream greatly exceeded my expectations. Service throughout our meal was friendly and attentive. We also loved how nicely they treated a family dining with their toddler. While it was a date for us, we intend to bring our family back next time. Huge success!

Excellent food and service but felt rushed at end of the meal to vacate table. The sea bass main course was fabulous and the mushroom appetizer had just the right amount of spice

Pretentious, phony. Uppity wait staff. Prices should be under obscenity law: wines by the SMALLEST glass starting start at $12, going as far up as $23 for Gruner Veltliner, which sells for $14 for a bottle online.

Where is the old Jojo with French touches in furniture, ambiance and menu??? Jojo is now an austere, Ikea influenced space, with zero ambiance. There is nothing French here. Wagyu beef?

The Duck breast was good, faintly reminiscent of the old Jojo.

Disappointing NYE meal. The four course meal was rushed (done in under an hour). The first two course- Hamachi crudo and then a black bass with mushrooms was tasteless. The best dish was a rack of lamb but came out so quickly after the second course that I felt too full to enjoy. I wasn't overwhelm by the décor although I didn't see the second floor. The wait staff while very pleasant was inexperience. I have dined here in the past but this is the first time since the renovation and I was extremely underwhelmed.

The renovation is stunning--you'd never recognize it. From an immediate, initial warm welcome until getting our coats to leave, hospitality (except for one guy who skulked around all night) was gracious and sincere. Our server, Alex, was attentive but not intrusive, skilled at making recommendations, and made for a most enjoyable evening. He had the perfect balance of friendliness without seeming false. The food, of course, was the star. We'd order everything all over again on a next visit--and hope that visit will come soon!
