Very good service, made it extra special for an 18th birthday with balloons and dessert on the house. Amazing cocktails, Very good portion sizes, Typical prices for a London restaurant. Wonderful afternoon/evening!
Best Deep Fried Chicken ever! Go for the Honey and Tabasco. Won't be disappointed. Its sweet, acidic and spicy.
Server was really friendly and helpful. Food and drinks were great as always.
Good food, service and lively atmosphere. A good choice for Friday night dinner and drinks in a casual environment.
Food was very greasy, never had a steak in chicken batter before and not something i'd try again.
Not very good quality considering that it's on more of the higher priced end.
Booked this for our wedding anniversary as we were up in London for the night.
Food was amazing!
Went on a Saturday night the service was good but the food was dry
I went for the short rib and the meat was super dry had to be smothered in extra sauce to be eaten
The Wings weren’t hot in temperatures when then quickly arrived at the table over all I was Underwhelmed I won’t be going back to joes it’s a shame as I have been there before a few years ago and they did an excellent beer can chicken that sadly isn’t available on the menu anymore
Wasn’t particularly happy with the services as it was very slow and the waiters / waitresses didn’t really seem to understand what I wanted and ended up having to pay more than what I wanted too due to poor lack of communication
Delicious chicken, great atmosphere and and outstanding customer service. Highly recommended and can't wait to return.
Great location right bang in Covent Garden. Mediocre food but good service - they corrected the wrong order , no charge and the right order came in reasonable time without fuss. Sadly the food was below average and my much anticipated Freak Shake was not special at all but was fine.
Great atmosphere, fantastic food and an overall lovely experience - the staff are brilliant and join in the fun making it even more special - 10/10
The food was nice and good value for money but very dark inside. We were seated straight away but it took them over 15 minutes to come and take any orders. Our waitress was really moody and just looked like she did not want to be there. The bartender also took a long time to bring our drink over so we had to wait around.
Nice place, nice food, nothing special but would recommend.
Nice hot food. Attentive staff. Good lively atmosphere. ......
Excellent food and friendly staff which makes this venue a ‘must return to’ one!
Was a lovely casual dinning venue for an early dinner. Food was excellent, good value in a central location
We had the Mac and Cheese, buffalo wings, chicken sandwich and a smoked sausage. The food was good but service was non existent and lacking. Long waits for drinks, starters and mains. The waiter was nice but frazzled and we sighted him on the rarest of occasions.
What we will certainly return for is dessert. Had the chocolate chip cookie with ice cream and chocolate sauce. It was delicious and very well done.
Food at Joe's is great. I was slightly disappointed by service and found this to be unusual. Overall, worth visiting before they close their doors.
Good food from a US Southerner!
The service was very slow. After ordering it took about 20 minutes for the drinks to arrive and the food took longer even longer. Even when prompted staff were slow to provide a bill.
Poor customer service and unfriendly staff.
One positive is the manager apologised when a complaint was made when we were leaving.
Great food and service but it was over hot, could have done with some air con
I used to like Navajjo Joe's but found this disappointing with a poor menu choice.
A friend was visiting from overseas and having eaten here before, recommended the 3 of us go. Seated on time and the food was brought out quickly.
Everyone left saying how great everything tasted as well so overall an excellent dinner choice.
Convenient location, fab food, tasty cocktails & great atmosphere. Always our go-to place when in London.
Really good food and a lovely time! The wings are super tasty and is just the right amount when shared. Loads of options too! Will definitely go again. Only problem was when my boyfriend went to the toilet I thought he had fallen down the loo but it turns out he was waiting ages to go. For such a large place just need more working cubicles :)
Food is always good. Drinks perfect. I have never had a bad experience and recommend this place all the time. I am from America and understand Southern food. This is a pretty good rendition of Southern cuisine. Corn bread is a bit unusual but very tasty. Love the chicken with hot sauce and honey. Make sure you are very hungry when you go because you will be fed well. Yum.
Good food, nice atmosphere.
Choose this restaurant from many.It was nothing special.I wouldn’t go back(not because it’s a bad restaurant)but only because there are so many other places I want to try.Cocktails are good.Food is average.
Sorry but boneless chicken was over cooked and dry! Waitress was unfriendly and abrupt - not a good experience.
Amazing food and cocktails
A wonderful experience, lovely food, staff and atmosphere
Service was good. Sunday cocktails offer was great!! I liked all the sides etc better than my honey glazed fried chicken. Loved the fried pickle, jalapeño poppers, sweet potato fries and mac and cheese! Lychee cocktail was to die for!
We were 10 mins late due to tube line closure. Our table was given away even though I had emailed the restaurant to request a nice table as it was a Birthday celebration. The table we ended up on was right by the bar area, the food was mediocre and the service charge should be discretionary not mandatory. Would not bother again. One course and a couple of drinks £111.00!
Joe's used to be one my favourite places in Covent Garden for good southern style food. It's gone downhill. This marks the second consecutive time that that the service/food was poor. Of note, the manager on duty took our order. Shortly after the server brought our food, I realised my order was incorrect. I don't like throwing out food so I didn't send it back, but I did tell our server the order was wrong.
His response: "Wow, you're right. That's not what you ordered. I'm sorry."
When the bill arrived: "Again, I'm really sorry about your food."
No offer for a drink or dessert. No offer to take the incorrect meal off the bill. No gesture on the restaurant's part to acknowledge their mistake. I could have sent the food back and had them make me the right meal. Customers shouldn't have to pitch a fit for a restaurant to show they value their business.
I considered removing the tip from the bill, but our server did not take our order. It was the manager. He didn't make the mistake.
But we will not eat at Joe's again.
Great food and fun atmosphere. Flagging down a waiter to get service was a pain though. I highly recommend the place and coming from the US, it was nice to get a taste of the food from home.
Amazing food and service, definitely will be coming again!
Went for Valentines meal: food was great and service was good too.
As an American living in London I long for decent American food. I thought I may have found somewhere for a fix with Joe's, sadly not.
Shrimp with black bean stew was VERY Good
Beet Salad also VERY Good
Brisket chilli BLAND
Short rib- Covered in too much sauce- OK
Meatloaf- AWFUL, it was some kind of pulled beef wrapped in a thick coating and deep fried. Mash was OK, honey glazed carrots were as sweet as a dessert, gravy also OK
Burger- good, fries were extremely salty
We didn't have dessert.
I thought overall, poor quality and expensive. Interior nice, fun and staff very nice. I won't go back though sadly.
Fun restaurant with tasty food and great staff
Good food - solid American fare, fresh and well-cooked. Extensive menu but probably best if you like chicken. Bar service was patchy (only one barman serving on a Friday evening...) and the downstairs cocktail bar was a mistake (not possible to order (classics) off menu and my margarita came pre-mixed!) but otherwise the restaurant is a good choice for a reasonably priced meal in Covent Garden with a decent atmosphere. Service reasonable.
