“Busy but friendly - good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

Called in on a Sunday night when many other places were closed. It was busy but we had a beer at the bar whilst we were waiting. The staff were very friendly and attentive. We just had steaks and they were good, cooked as ordered.

I would recommend this if you are not after fine dining but want a good meal in friendly surroundings at a reasonable pice.

“Over-priced. Attentive service. Good food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

We went for dinner. The food was acceptable- nothing really memorable. They were skimpy with the salad which lacked the sugared pecans it advertised as having. Had about 1/16th of an avocado and less than one teaspoon of goat cheese. ...definitely lacking. The waitress was attentive. The menu had some of everything (Chinese, Indian, Italian, French...Japanese) but really didn't seem to focus and was lacking substance. Definitely NOT Candaian fare, as advertised. It was a bit noisy and over-priced for the quality.

“this is where the beautiful people are !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

Hidden between Eau Claire and the building work that is going on, Joey's is defo the place to be seen.

the staff are all stunning, the service and food are just as tasty, i could eat here every week - if my budget would only allow.!

booking not always taken but wait lists can be "allocated" by phone ( isnt that a booking ?!) but the shared dining spaces are an opportunity to meet new people and make some friends whilst you at it !

top notch food and service - you cant go wrong here.

“Busy place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

On a nice day, it is tough to get on the patio for lunch. Best to get there early (before 11:30) or after 1:00 PM to find a seat.

Meal sizes are average, quality food.

“Enjoyable experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

I dined here twice while attending a conference at a nearby hotel. The Moroccan soup was excellent, as was the pasta alfredo. Sangria was a bit sweet and they have attempted to make the caesar salad healthier by adding fresh kale, but I didn't think it worked very well. The taste was good, but I would prefer either lettuce OR kale, not the combination. The apple pie is also very good.

The hostesses and wait staff were fantastic.
