Dining room chairs were the most uncomfortable I've ever experienced and very poorly suited for dining. One leans back so far that you practically can't reach the table.

We had to wait for a very long time because of a big take out order. 2 of the 4 of us were not charged. The 2 that were not charged waited all of 3 mins longer than the 2 that were charged. Not happy
Will not recommend the Burnaby location but will go to the North van lication

Food good. Server attentive. Started out great with distancing etc but mid way through a large group seated behind us started to move about, no masks, cane and sat next to our table, frequently getting within 3 feet as they went in and out. Bunch of 20-30 year olds. A bit disconcerting . Another group in back yelling out loudly etc.

My wife and I went to Joey Burnaby to celebrate the beginning of her maternity leave in anticipation of the birth of our first child. The staff was extremely attentive to my wife’s needs and they really made us feel at home there! The food was amazing, and I couldn’t recommend this establishment any more! If it was possible to give 6 stars, I would. Thanks for the wonderful evening!

I hesitate to write this because I would like to keep it a secret! This is a great pation option and much bigger than the Joey's in Coquitlam where I had thought I had booked. It turned out to be a happy accident and we will go there again just for the patio! The service was also excellent and we never felt rushed at all. Food is always delicious. I love the steak and Sushi!

Came here for the first time for our first Valentine dinner and we were more than happy with the experience we had from this restaurant. Staffs were extremely friendly and helpful. Our steaks were not cooked right so they sent them back and offered us light snacks while waiting for our food. Joey's cocktails were amazing and I am looking forward to tasting the rest of the cocktails on their menu. Food didn't take too long to come and they were nicely plated. My girlfriend's steak was cooked right the second time, but mine was a little over-cooked, the manager asked if I want them to make it again so i told him my steak was good enough for me. Joey's steaks were juicy and tender, and moreover, the Hunter Sauce and Peppercorn sauce extraordinary. In the end, they gave us a huge discount for the steaks that were cooked wrong and we really appreciated it. Would definitely come back here and highly recommend this place for everyone!

When we got there we told the hostess that we had a reservation and they’re ready very confused and didn’t really care and we waited 10 minutes past our time. A family came up and said they were a walk in and got seated right away, finally we got seated and our server was nice but she really only did the bare minimum.

Staff seems like they didn't care at all. We had to wait with empty glasses every time and call or flag down our waitress, Never offered water, never refilled water after we asked for it. It was a birthday dinner and the birthday girl was upset because we were ignored. I dint want to embarrass my party so I tipped well, but she did not deserve $85 bucks or even half of that. It took fifteen minutes to get offered a drink.. not even water... until we asked.. Food was good but the entres took over an hour after ordering. We should have been offered something to eat if there was a delay. The birthday girl was like "OMG I'm so hungry whats taking to long". Thats NOT what you want to happen at a birthday celebration... Oh and when we left, the elevator was not prorgammed to go to P2 so we had to run around for 15 minutes trying to find a way down, then went back to the restaurant and the girl told us...ya, I't doesnt go to P2..Whaaaat Why not? We dont know why? ??? No manager in site at all...all night - Poor I like the venue, I like the food, I like the atmosphere, but with that service i cant see myself going back. You should send me a gift cert so i can see if its always like that or not

A Cactus and Earls fan decided to try Joey’s in Burnaby.
Arrived to a dark dingy environment. Bathroom needed grooming and toilet paper.

Happy hour only serves 6 oz choice of wine served in a glass smelling of cleaner.

Prices for example are around $3 more than Cactus.

Won’t be rushing back unfortunately.

Server was great and they provided the first round of drinks on the house due to our experience.
