Invited to a dinner event at Chez Joly I searched for it to find parking. The first site that came up said they were closed. I'm here to tell you they are not closed but offer this prime space for small parties, events, and catering. Their hospitality was welcoming, the food was delicious. Even had vegan option for the entree. Dessert was yummy lemon bars and gluten free chocolate cookies which were moist and delicious. Look in to them for that special place for your group gathering, business appreciation dinner, or just a group of best friends getting together to see your recent trip videos and pictures.

This little restaurant was a delightful respite after walking around the city. The decor has an old European feel to it. Lots of windows looking out onto the street. I had the quiche which was very good. It was a nice, quiet restaurant.

We were pleasantly surprised by our dining experience at Chez Joly on Valentine's Day. We found the ambiance to be perfect and the food to be top rate French cuisine. The staff was very accommodating and allowed us to substitute red for rose and also extra oysters for clams on the seafood appetizer on the special Valentine's menu. The level of service was perfect for us, not hovering but attentive to our needs. The dessert was as delicious as any we have tasted in France, and the rose given on Valentine's Day was the icing on the cake. Would highly recommend Chez Joly!

We enjoyed our dinner here overall. The food was very good although it was a bit too salty for our taste. But the service was poor. The restaurant was almost empty and the waiter spent most of his time talking to another couple sitting at the bar. He never asked how our food was and we had to flag him over to get more water.

We had a wonderful waiter on a Saturday night who was very, very attentive and yet always left us feeling like we were in conversation with him about what we wanted or needed. He never hovered but we were never left thinking, "Where is my drink?" or feeling forgotten.

The food was good; We had the tartes aux tomates for an appetizer and loved the blend of tastes of goat cheese and tomatoes. I ordered the pan seared salmon and it was very good. My wife ordered the filet mignon and was pleased.

But,more than anything, what stands out was how excellent the server was. He made the experience just by being very interested in giving us what we needed and explaining well the tastes and textures of various foods and dishes.
