The best seafood experience in the city. I love Joso. And the staff are awesome always. It is my go to place when I come to Ztoronti. Try the scorpion fish fresh from azores with an Adria salad and perhaps some smoked trout if there are two of you fining

I found the fish to be a little expensive, but no doubt fresh and prepared Mediterranean style, which is just the way I like it. The spaghetti dish I had as an appetizer was fantastico - great flavours and loaded with seafood! Service was great as always, very attentive!

Ambiance was great but the space is a little tight. Food was okay the seafood was just over cooked. Bread wasn’t warm. The service was great they are attentive with what you need but not too friendly.

The best fish restaurant in Toronto. All fresh caught and perfectly prepared. The servers are there when you need them but disappear when you want privacy. They are gracious. The restaurant is beautifully and sensually designed. All in all a perfect meal.

Overall experience, food & service,
was excellent.

We were very cold so we asked our server if the AC could be adjusted. The temperature got warmer and as we were getting ready to leave the cold air started up again. We overheard two diners stating how cold it is in the restaurant and she put on her leather jacket.

Excellent evening. My only criticism is that the upstairs dining area was not properly air conditioned - a bit too hot.

The risotto was a bit of a wait, but it totally worth it. Also recommend the octopus, so meaty that you just can’t believe it!

This restaurant is truly an experience. The food is amazing. We are from L.A and dine well but here is outstanding. Wine selection and deserts are as good as main dishes. Very eclectic place. Will dine on our next trip and highly recommended

Decor was entertaining, the service was first rate and the food was excellent. I suspect we'll be back to try the Dover Sole. If I hade one reservation it was that my mussels were a bit too heavy on the butter at the expense of the wine.

We do the “Avenue rd” area date night once a month and this was our next stop, found parking just outside restaurant which was a bonus, host was very friendly, waitress the same, the decor was awesome and had extensive conversation pieces on the walls, no issues at all with the place except the food is quite pricy, $82 for Rizotto with seafood, waitress said it was plenty for 4 with leftovers, well we were still hungry after, we also had clams and Calamari which was also a bit pricy for the portion, the house made hot sauce is excellent full of pepper flavour very low heat so it complimented the food not over power it, overall we are glad we went just not sure if we will return any time soon at those prices, either the portion sizes need to increase or prices come down, our party was made up of Greeks and Portuguese so we are very familiar with seafood and fresh caught pricing.

The food was awesome as always, but the price is way too high. Lunch is as expensive as dinner.
