Haven't been for 10 years and nothing has changed (in a good way).. everything is fabulous! Food, decor/art (risque which I LOVE!), Service are all a 10! I love that music gets a bit loud too...I don't love bars or clubs so this is a fine balance of dinner w fun.. Keep up the fabulous work guys!

Our first time there. I could tell many patrons were regulars. This was probably one of the top meals I have ever eaten at a restaurant. Grilled Octopus, squid ink spaghettini and the most amazing grilled spigola fish I have ever eaten. Service was top notch! Thank you Joso’s- we will be back again for sure!

Shared seabream, mussels, stewed veg and jasmine rice. Everything super fresh and cooked perfectly. Classic vanilla creme brûlée to wash it down was the perfect finishing touch. The whole experience was well done. Not really g-rated scenery though!

Haven’t been there in over 4o years. Still seems popular. Visually, as in my previous visit...quite the experience. Choices of fresh fish and seafood impressive. However, food and wine and cocktails are overpriced. Main courses are simply the main course, all accompaniments are extra. Attentive service ; and a nice evening; but with the number of choices of fine dining spots in Toronto, not good value.

Joso's has lots of character! Seafood was out of this world. Server knew the various choices extremely well and helped us make a great choice and was always available without being obtrusive. High end experience without snobbery. No complaints.

Joao remains one of the best destinations for outstanding fish and seafood. Our main courses were exceptional. I don’t think the rest of the menu keeps pace. Apps and sides are good but not memorable. Wine list is adequate. Ambience is rooted in its history but time for a refresher? Still I will come back to enjoy those main courses again!

I don’t normally do this but my experience was so good I have too.
The cool music in a homey cozy dining room with well decor that will keep you amused , we had a great time.
The food. We had grilled sardines shrimp and oysters to start. All super fresh. Then the risotto and lamb was perfect.
House made tiramisu and tea and we were satisfied to say the least.
As well great wine and really great staff.

We will be back very soon !!!

I have been to Joso's many times over the past 40 years but had not been there recently. My daughter is moving to Hawaii and I just couldn't let her leave Toronto without a visit to Joso's. What a perfect place for us to have an intimate dinner and conversation together. Everything was as wonderful as it ever was and my daughter fell in love with the place, the food, the art - everything - just as I did so many years ago. In fact, when she comes to visit in the summer we are heading directly to Joso's for lunch and look forward to another uniquely Toronto experience! Thank you so much!

Hands down best restaurant in Toronto. We had the Orato (so good!), Leonardo pasta, a few prawns and Andria salad. If you want a delicious seafood pasta - Leonardo is so good. My 20 month old daughter couldn’t get enough so we had to order another portion.
