The food remains very tasty…we are frequent customers, however the pricepoint is too high for most items. Also, some of the earlier art works are gone..leaving some large photographs which don’t really relate to Joso’s original themes.
Joso’s is still our favourite location for squid ink pasta and grilled sardines!

Eclectic ambience, yes-- but so entertaining. The service is topnotch- responsive but not intrusive and the servers have useful knowledge about the fish they serve, don't hesitate to inquire if they are serving a fish you're not familiar with. The scorpion fish was expertly prepared. Squid ink pasta cooked to al dente perfection with a briny undernote to the sauce that perfectly complemented the bite of the pasta. Well-chosen wine list.

We had a family meal at the restaurant. The waiters were very helpful and accommodating. They brought reading glasses for my father and had real menus as opposed to QR codes. I think this adds a touch of class. The food was amazing. Fresh and delicious and tasty. Generous portions. We shared salad and fried calamari as appetizers and shared squid ink spaghettini (delicious but kind of messy) and the fish of the day. Everything was perfect and the wine list is excellent as well. Highly highly recommend Joso’s.

This is our 3rd time at Joso's. I had a special request for my wife's birthday. Paul called me in advance and accommodated my request. Our dinner experience was spectacular as usual specially the whole fish. Paul and his crew did a fantastic job in making our evening memorable. Thank you for a great evening. We will be bck!!

Great ambiance and very accommodating staff. I had the grilled octopus which was delicious but I would have liked for it to come with an accompaniment such as veggies. Other than that I was very pleased with my experience at Joso’s.

Transcendent dining experience at this Toronto institution. The food was phenomenal, the service impeccable, and the ambience/vibe/interiors are unlike any restaurant I’ve ever dined in in Toronto. Just the exceptional seafood and history of the place alone would be enough but it is a stand-out experience all around. Cannot recommend enough. Imbued with the warmth, charm, and character of Joso, the original owner, the sense of place here is unparalleled. The interiors and decor require their own tour, as the place is almost like a museum or a shrine to Joso and his family. Don’t forget to check out the walls plastered with photos of celebs who have dined there over the years. Truly an impressive place. It’a a must-try for those who are nostalgic for the Toronto of yesteryear and dining establishments with heart and roots in their community.

Joso's is a brilliant bistro.

A wonderful selection of seafood, shiny and bright, with only a touch of ocean/lake smell. It is expensive because seafood is expensive and what is served, is perfection on a plate. I was talking with a college student and suggested she go to Joso's and share a seafood appetiser with a friend or have a tiramisu or crème brule, both incredibly beautiful and lovely on the palate.

Thank you so very much.
