“Been going for years - nothing changes!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2013

We have been going to this basement cafe for about 20 years. You have to know its there as it can't have a passing trade because its not obvious from the upstairs clothes shop.
While not a gastronomic experience it's always s good bet for a quick lunch.
A safe bet with a safe menu.
It has a very well heeled cosmopolitan clientele.

“very average food and service not too nice ..”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2013

not one of my favourites in london .. we used to come here quite often for lunch but not anymore as the service was usually quite unfriendly and the food not amazing. not bad but just not worth the price. the restaurant is on the lower floor, so there are no windows on that level and no natural light apart from a bit that shines downstairs from windows on the ground floor. the place is not too big but has many tables for its size which makes it even more claustrophobic. in my opinion fine for a quick lunch if you are around fro a shopping day but nothing for a nice long lunch date with friends.

“For ladies who lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2012

I have been going to Joe's since it opened oh so many years ago. Sure it has changed a little here and there through the years,nips and tucks at always required for staying power. But nothing cold shift the lovely ladies who lunch no matter how many years have passed. It is a meeting point for the Lebanese community that live in London, all lovely and dressed to the nines. It is always busy and lively,the food is good lunchtime fayre. But you must reserve, put your glad rags on and take your Choo's for a spin..this is Sloane street after all.
Bon appetit.

“...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2012

Had dinner with friends there in August. Suddenly a mouse appears the under the tables. I tell staff who continue to chat not seeming to care about it. They later come to apologise, saying the mous was actually very small, and that these things happen. Fortunately they offered the food for the night.

“Shoppers lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2012

Had lunch with a friend and cluttered the place with shopping bags. Staff were delightful and food good. I can recommend a really good home made burger, great flavour.
Looks like a cafe outside but actually a very nice restaurant inside.
