    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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!!

    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. Alas, nothing.
