Joso's Ratings and Reviews
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.
SO delicious! Ambiance was great too. Had an awesome birthday dinner here.
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 !!!
the Room is like no other and it made my partner’s birthday something special.
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!
Very nice experience at this cozy restaurant!
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.
The sweetness of the pudding is in the eating! Amazing if you are a seafood lover. Great service too. Oysters are to die for.
The ambiance at Josos was great. The staff were very friendly from the moment we walked in the door. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and the fresh fish options. The Leonardo pasta dish is a must try.
Out guests love the freshness of the food
Here is a very nice seafood restaurant. It was served really fresh fish and other seafood. Moreover, I felt great ambiance, too. Croatian sculptures and paintings made me be happy with delicious food and wine. I feel like recommending to my friends.
Food and drinks were amazing as always! Great place.
Our anniversary and they made a fuss
Sparkling wine and all
They thanked us for choosing to celebrate at Joso’s
Good was great overall.
Calamari squid had too much breading. Octopus was burnt. Fish dorada main and squid ink pasta was excellent 5*. Oysters excellent and fresh. First glass of wine tasted water down, complained about it, waitress didn't offer anything for compensation. So we just ordered a second round. Overall great experience, would go again but with a conservative choice of menu, would just go for the mains. The food didn't match the price.
lived up to the memory from dining there years ago. Food is excellent as was the level of service!
Great staff and loved the food ~
This neighbourhood gem has been in the same location at Av and Dav forever and it still serves up the best grilled fish in the city. The atmosphere is quirky to some, kinky to others and it has been a delight to my wife and me for over 15 years. Leave your prurient aesthetic at home and come enjoy the art and the delicious, simple preparations of the freshest fish and seafood in the city. Yes this is a real review. No. we are not related to the restaurant or management.

Food is really amazing. Must try squid ink spaghetti.
Mediterranean fish in Toronto???
If you like old fish you will love this place.
Went on a Friday so no excuse.
On top of the lack of anything fresh on the menu
(We tried 10 dishes) they don’t cook to well ether...
Risotto Milanese with porchini in it???
There is a reason that is not in the original recipe, it’s too just many flavours. And it’s brown ...
If you are a foodie don’t go here.
Loved the decor, who doesn’t like boobs... ?
Excellent dinner but simple. Wine selection was excellent and service outstanding. Definitely will go back.
The best restaurant for Mediterranean cuisine in Toronto have been going there for the last 33 years, same ambiance , same quality .The best
Excellent fresh seafood simply cooked as well as attentive wait staff.
One of the best restaurants！！！Squid ink pasta, fresh grilled fish and fish soup, highly recommended to try！！！
Always fresh and very taste fish nice atmosfere good service
Fabulous sea food in a unique restaurant with definite character. Walkable to off-Mirvish. Expensive but worth the treat!
Had a really great time at Joso’s for my mom’s birthday. Food was delicious, staff were super friendly. They turned off the lights and music and got the entire restaurant to sing happy birthday - a fun (albeit embarrassing) celebrations
We have been going to Joso's in the last 20 years more than I can count.
Excellent, authentic food in a vibrant, eclectic setting. A must see for foodies!
6 enjoying a BIRTHDAY we we're able to create a family style table of our choices
Food was excellent staff really well informed we highly recommend this restuarant
The staff were very well prepared with manners and information but well balanced.
We admired the decor and overall atmosphere.
Very nice experience and most importantly delicious food and drinks.
I would recommend Joso's to anyone who appreciates the finer things in life and is willing to pay a reasonable price for that.
Amazed by the inside look of the place. Unique and cozy! It feels like dining in some art gallery! But the service was just okay. Waitress wasn't very friendly and was cold maybe because we didn't order alcohol. Food wasn't as good as expected. The grilled octopus was a bit burned and tasted bitter and not juicy. Good for one time try out if you want to experience something different, but definitely not for a foody person to go again.
A Toronto classic for the fish/Med lover!! Nothing in the city comes close to this perfection.
Always love their fresh seafood~ lovely little place to~
We went there for our anniversary and the food was Amazing and staff were very friendly and helpful! We can't wait to go back!!!
