Cafe Joelle has been an institution in this neighborhood for longer than I've been here (that being 11 years)! The food is consistently expertly prepared, and the chef has a knack for knowing how to combine various flavors to make a meal you won't forget. Each time I've been here, I have NEVER been disappointed. The soups are richly textured and flavored; the pastas are mouth-watering; and the main dishes are delectable. Everything from chicken to fish to burgers, Cafe Joelle has it all, but not so much as to make it a diner! This is a 5 star restaurant at 3 star prices (especially if you go at lunch)!

Good drinks, good food, but can be a little pricey for what it is. The mardi gras menu is a little bit of New Orleans in Long Island.

This restaurant is actually one of the reasons we moved to Sayville...lol The food and service are always wonderful. I recommend getting there by 5:30 to be sure and get a seat. Make sure you order the Wasabi Calamari. It's the best we've ever had!

I have been going to Cafe Joelle for over 10 years and I have to say - I have always had a wonderful experience. The waitstaff is fantastic and if you have to wait for a table...it is well worth the wait! I have introduced this place to everyone I know and they always want to go back again. It is a guaranteed winner for a casual lunch, romantic dinner or a special occasion. My personal favorite is the Rigatoni, Shrimp and Spinich in a Creamy Tomoto Sauce topped a dollop of delicious creamy goat cheese. A must try!!!!
