Live this place. Been many times with friends and family for dinner and happy hours so was very happy to hear that they started Sunday Brunch. The food is just as fabulous for brunch. The brunch cocktail menu is also well thought out. Ingrid is a delight as our waitress and Robert welcomes you as part of the family. We’ve been twice since they started and will definitely come back. Well done!

Délicieux et très agréable souper ! Notre serveur était excellent et nous expliquait très bien le menu, mais les autres suiteurs semblaient moins habitués (d'où le 4 étoiles pour service au lieu de 5). L'endroit est magnifique également !

The decor was great. Beautiful space and fittings.
We were disappointed with the food however. The romaine caesar salad was very poor. The bacon was diced and raw and the dressing watery.
The halibut though generous portion was very bland and hardly crusted as described. The lamb shank was also large but missed the mark and the black cod was also not exceptionally well seasoned. The pork belly and peach cobbler were the best of the bunch. The mushroom soup was also very good.
Overall a big disappointment as we were excited by the menu descriptions and decor.
Too bad. Service was good .

Fantastic restaurant in every sense of the way. Food is arguably one of the best in Montreal in terms of value. Had a ten minute conversation with the chef Luigi Greco who travelled all over the world. The management has a lovely lounge area which will attract not only local DJs but international DJs as well. I’ve been to many restaurants and I’ll recommend this place to people of all ages. I would not be surprised if it becomes one of Montreal’s new “must visit” places.

Nous sommes allés un vendredi soir en famille et tout le monde, même les ados, ont adoré.
Nous y allons également en amoureux, entre amis et pour les affaires. Nous adorons ce resto sympathique et trendy. La pizza est savoureuse et les options végétariennes sont nombreuses et délicieuses; choux-fleur grillés et burrata sublime!!

This was my second time at Joia Sociale. It was pizza week and they had their special menu with a apple, smoked paprika bacon and caramelized onions that was absolutely amazing!

The grilled cauliflower appetizer was good (however I remembered it to be better the first time I had it as the cauliflower was more charred and gave it a smokier taste).

The service and ambiance were great for a dinner out with friends.

We started our dinner early, so we had no wait times on food. Unfortunately they dont have a kids friendly menu, so the chef was able to make a simple small portion of rigatoni with butter, but still felt the need to charge us $16 for it!?!
The food was good. Service was good as well.

We started off with a delicious cauliflower appetizer , nicely seasoned and very filling for two people . I ordered the fungji pizza as my main course , was very pleased with my choice. The pizza was well cooked no burnt crust and very tasty . I would definitely come back here again. the ambiance and lighting of the place definitely added to the dining experience!

Great ambiance. Inside decor modern yet cozy (wood and brick elements). Quiet and airy with tables well spaced out.

Food was great. Excellent flavors and variety.

Service was very good with friendly staff who was able to “read” the table and gave us time to chat when we needed to and was never far away when we needed service.

Tout était excellent!
Nous avions commandé 4 entrées à partager et les quatre sont arrivées en même temps. La prochaine fois nous demanderons de les apporter séparément car nous avions terminé les entrées et il restait encore la moitié du vin. On a donc commandé une pizza en plus mais c’était bon!

We had a lovely evening. Didn’t get there until 9:30 so it was quieter but the vibe was warm and friendly

We loved it here. I ordered pasta with a mushroom ragout and my wife ordered ravioli - both dishes were perfectly portioned and you could tell that the ingredients were all fresh. We will absolutely be back next time we’re in Montreal.

Very good food and attention. The place is cozy and the variety of the menu is just what we needed. My husband and I had an excellent wine with our Scalopinas al Limone and my teenagers found exactly what they wanted: one ordered pasta, which was excellent and the other one a very good fish with salad. Very good choice.
