24th year in Montreal for the Grand Prix race. First time at Joiea Sociale. Can't wait to make it a second. Hands down the best staff, atmosphere, and food we had the entire weekend. The gentleman that got drinks was so helpful in suggesting a wine and had an awesome personality The caprese salad with burrata was Ah-mazing! Start to finish perfect dining experience.

The restaurant is very nice and our waiter was very friendly. The problem in my opinion was with the food. The appetizer (we had the spinack and mozza fritters) eas really good but the pizzas were just okay and with so much Italian/pizza restaurants in Montreal, I feel like they have to step up their game because they are currently not on the top of my list for good pizza places.

Unfortunately, the temperature of our food and coffee was inconsistent and we were just 3. It was for Mother's Day and my mom's food and coffee were cold. They reacted well and reheated the plate but it was still just warm and not super good due to all that.

Mother’s Day. Beautiful restaurant and ambiance. Great wine list. The food was not very hot- pasta needed to be re-heated. Lacked flavour for the pasta and pizza. Salads were nice.

Food was quite good. Nous étions 7 et tout le monde a apprécié leurs plats. Éclairage inapproprié... la soupe avait une couleur radioactive. Serveur attentioné, courtois, souriant et qui connaissait bien la carte des vins. Préposé au vestiaire super gentil. Servce très lent pour un samedi soir, il n'y avait que 6 tables de clients... ambiance neutre, joli décor, sans plus.

We had brunch here this past weekend and absolutely loved it. One of the highlights of our weekend for sure. Really cute, rustic vibe. Great music with a really friendly DJ who gave us great recommendations on what to do in Montreal and our server was so sweet and amazing. Food was great too! Merci :)

Our experience here was absolutely perfect. We sat at the bar and the bartender - Jacob was our server. He was a gem. Very knowledgeable and suggested the best choices on the menu. The meatballs appetizer was to die for. Exactly how Jacob described it “ like a cloud in your mouth”! The ambiance and service was outstanding! Jacobs espresso martinis were the greatest! We will definitely be recommending this restaurant to everyone and will be coming back!

I booked Joiea Sociale to try the LeChop menu, however when I arrived there this menu was sold out.
As I booked through LeChop website I was expecting to try that menu.
Fortunately I ordered a delicious pizza and a pasta . I recommend this restaurant.

We had a lovely and pleasurable experience at Joia Sociale. The service was excellent and the food was very good. We were celebrating my mother and sister's birthdays and their desserts were complimentary - on the house. This gesture was much appreciated. I will definitely return to this restaurant and recommend it to friends and family.

Légèrement déçu par les desserts (sauf la crème brûlée !) qui ne sont pas à la hauteur du reste, même s'ils restent plaisants à manger.

Ambience was nice. Pizza is good. The pasta needs a bit of work. One friend ordered the sorrentino pasta and the plate was swimming in olive oil. Don’t get me wrong I’m Italian and we love our olive oil but this was not normal. The gnocchi was ok but the sauce was not good.

The place is nice, service is good. However, I cannot give it more than 3 stars. I wanted to order the bagel and smoked salmon, and I was told they were out of both bagels and salmon. I then asked for jam (for my toast), and I was told they were out of JAM! I wanted to try out this new place but was quite disappointed that they were out of these things.

The food I ended up ordering was good. But I wouldn’t go there for brunch again.

Dans l'ensemble le repas du Nouvel An était bien et bon. Par contre, nous nous attendions à un dessert sur le menu et on nous a donné autre chose. On a fait la remarque et on nous a fait savoir qu'en cuisine il n'était pas trop réceptif....bref, fallait pas se plaindre. Curieuse façon de satisfaire un client qui a raison....on a payé pour avoir ce menu!!!
Nous n'avons pas aimé la réaction face à nos remarques JUSTIFIÉES.

Big mistake coming here for New Year’s eve.
We thought that if we got there on the early side (6!) our children could get pizza, but were told that they were only offering the prix fixed menu. We then saw people eating pizza. My husbands whiskey sour had no evidence of any “sour”. But the food was the low point-burned bruschetta, overly salty chicken, and an uninspired dessert of a slice of toasted panettone (not “carmelized”, as described).
The bill was astronomical for what we had: $350 for 2 adults and two children.
