I used to come to this location a lot for events, birthdays, and dates but in all honesty my experience has been going down more and more every time I come in. Generally I make a reso in advance so it’s not too hard to get a table so we promptly got sat in the lounge when we came in. My boyfriend and I shared the lobster ravioli, a side of crispy mash, salmon sushi, and the pesto shrimp flatbread. The food was just decent, which was a let down because we were looking forward to coming back for our favourite dish being the ravioli, but it came out different than the way we had it a while ago. Don’t know why they changed the dish because it was perfect before. The salmon sushi was okay, although the rice was super hard and dry and tasted like it was sitting out for too long. The other dishes were fine.
One thing that really bugged us was the service, our server completely missed our drink orders so we asked another woman who seemed to be a manager if she could check to see if it was rung in. It obviously was not, and so she came back to take our order again and she came to bring us our drinks. She then said she would take care of our drinks for us which I appreciated because no one should have to wait over 10 minutes for a coke and a sangria while watching the bartender make drinks for every other table in the restaurant, which was not very busy. Our server didn’t really check in on us upon getting our food and so we ended up just sucking it up and finishing it because we were hungry. By the time she came around we were more than halfway through the meal.
By the time we were ready to pay the drinks were still on our bill. Why would you tell me you’re going to take care of something for us because of a mistake on your end and then charge me for it still? I just didn’t want to make a fuss and just paid for it anyways because at that point we just wanted to get out. Overall I’ve had better service than this and was really let down by this experience.
The food was excellent, the service was superb! Lettuce wraps were fabulous! I recommend Joey's!

The good andar service wrre good. However it das expensive.
First time to this particular Joey's. Great location (tough to park as with all downtown restaurants which is why I transited there), nice interior, really good food and great service. Easy to sit and chat as it wasn't necessary to shout to be heard.
We received a friendly welcome right away and table was ready to go for 6 of us for our reservation. Our server was very nice however service was slow. Took a while to get our drinks and we were not checked on enough to see if we needed anything. Food was good and although server checked back a few minutes after happy hour was officially over, it was honoured. One of our party ordered dessert and when it was delivered, server didn’t check to see if he had cutlery. It wasn’t our first time here and other visits were much better. A little underwhelmed this time but would try again
The sever seemed a bit grumpy, rarely smiled but overall was attentive.
We are 4 ladies who were in for lunch. The service was excellent with a number of people looking after us. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Would definitely come back to this restaurant.
Great food, tasty. Variety. You will find all sorts of dishes from soups and sandwiches to curries and salads! Th ahi tuna club is awesome!
I was very disappointed with our whole experience. We always went to Joeys on broadway and always always had the lobster cream ravioli with prawns. It was also my birthday which the restaurant was told about. First No One wished my a happy birthday and no dessert comped and they changed the recipe of my dish and so I was not a happy birthday girl. Our service was okay, the server was very nice but we hardly ever saw her and she didn’t really seem interested. Overall not a place we will go back to.
Bad service even though restaurant was not busy.
We had great service and great food. It's close to work and the prices are pretty average these days. Only find it awfully noisy and difficult to hear each other talk. On the other hand that usually means people are enjoying themselves
The food was great and served quickly; however, our waitress disappeared after our food arrived, and we waited for a long time to get our bills.
It was good. The waiter didn’t really listen very well but got it right ;-)
The market chicken salad is amazing!!
We enjoyed our meal though it's challenging to hear each other. Our waitress was lovely and did everything well for the most part. We lost her for a while and thought she'd left because it took her so long to come back to our table so we could order dessert.
Friends from away
Good restaurant in Vancouver. Service was good. We will go back there the next time.
Worst service - please see Yelp review dated Aug 30th by Robin S
Outstanding menu, food, AND service by Sam !
Something for everyone on the menu and everything was fantastic! We were a table of 4 and everyone ordered something different. Sam was great by answering our questions about the menu and telling us the best sellers and we never wanted for anything. Desserts were terrific also! Will definitely eat there again if back in Vancouver!
Fabulous restaurant from appetizers to dessert. Burgers were fantastic - apple pie was excellent. Loved the atmosphere - laid back and classy.
Food and service always great! First summer visit; so nice to enjoy the weather on the patio.
The food was good but not great. The service was slow and unprofessional. When your server doesn’t break down your change properly so that he is forcing his tip on you it puts you off. This should be in a standard training program.
Loved the ambience and the place. Have come here a couple times and the place always makes me feel very comfortable and happening.
Made a reservation and requested the patio when we arrived we were told they don't accept reservations on the patio but yet there was a table outside with a reserved sign on it. We were then seated inside and were given a patio table shortly thereafter. I then received an email from open table saying sorry to hear you could not keep your reservation, when I received this email I was already seated at Joey's
I am from part of Asia, and me and my friends visited today. In our case, we can share every food without who has an epidemic. So, we said that we do not meed share dishes. And the staff asked me 3 times even thought I said I am fine. That is why I wrote about my country at the beginning of this. Anyway. Foods were nice but the staffs were not really.
I like the ambience of the place, service was good. However the barbecued salmon rice bowl I ordered was way too salty and the sauce was excessive. Requested the staff to strain the sauce. Manager promptly offered to replace with new order, which I appreciated. I would go back & try other dishes, but strongly suggest the kitchen staff to go easy on salt & sauce.
We were one of only a few tables inside but put near kitchen door which was very noisy from kitchen staff yelling....
Nice place, friendly staff and lovely food.
Very good experience!! I had the herb crust salmon and recommend it !!
My friend & I were there for happy hour. I thought the food (we had flatbread) was excellent & a very good portion. Good drinks/service/ambience rounded our visit off quite nicely!
Server was excellent, can’t remember her name but she is studying to become a dental hygienist if that helps! We were disappointed when the Broadway Joeys closed😔 It was closer for us since we live in Tsawwassen, but the Burrard an Robson is very good too😊👍
Service was poor and staff were not very welcoming. Food was good though.
Great food. Good service. Very noisy.
Happy hour is fantastic. Would always come back for the food. However I have never been here without having multiple servers. It’s always confusing knowing who our server is. Otherwise fantastic dinner.
Always great food, lots of choices and great drinks
Excellent food and service and a nice atmosphere. Large portions. Recommended for a quick bite or something smarter.
