He only thing I did not like was that salad on the menu is only salad nothing really in it. I would pass on this item. But the salmon with quinoa was great

Reservation via Opentable worked fine.
Conducted business lunch. Guests appreciated discovering the restaurant.
Nice space between tables. Allows for easy and open business discussion.
Good light from tall windows (cold AC) made it nice on one of Mtls hot, muggy Summer days.

All guests enjoyed their lunch menu.
My recommendation, must try the meat balls. perfect texture and excellent accompanying sauce.

Staff is super helpful, pleasant and discreet (kind not to interrupt discussion, meetings) .

Recommend this spot! PH

I love this place! Service, food, ambiance .. just impeccable. Everything on the menu is simply delicious - their creamy spinach and fontina fritters, their gnocchi al pesto, margherita pizza, mushroom soup, salmone al limone .. gifts to any pallet. And not only do you eat well, everyone in the restaurant makes you feel at home. I would recommend Joeia Sociale to anyone wanting to eat an excellent meal with great service and a cozy ambiance.

What a great place. Feel like it is hidden from a lot of people but it was one of the best meals we’ve had and the service was great. People need to find this place and eat there.

This was our third visit to the restaurant. All three times there were maybe two or three other tables with people and this was on Friday nights. Although we were able to converse nicely at our table without too much noise, it seemed strange that the restaurant was very empty.
Food was good. Pizza was excellent. The food from the kitchen, even though not many clients, came out luke warm.
The spinach Gorgonzola gnocchi was removed from the menu to change it up, but that is a mistake. That dish is outstanding and should be put back. The pesto gnocchi was disappointing and boring.

I like the restaurant and the ambiance and location. I hope things pick up.

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.

We had a wonderful evening at Joiea Sociale. The servers were super nice and relaxed.
The food was excellent. The veal meat balls were so light and delicious, the gnocchi was outstanding as was everyone else.

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.

De belles et bonnes pizza !
Les plats aussi sont bons.
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.
