    Time of arrival 2:10ish As of today 02-22-2022 this Joes sushi Japanese restraunt does not offer *(all-you-can eat....)* You can still use the (all you can eat) menu to select your meal & they Will give 50% off your selected pieces....The food taste good and was presented nicely. Sitting down in booth where comfortable & had clean plexiglass in between seats for your protection.television was running with sports ch. And a running program. Music was being softly played in back ground. The service was welcoming and over all, experience was really good. 👍 ** three hand rolls (SALMON HAND ROLL, SPICY SCALLOP HAND ROLL, TUNA HAND ROLL) CUT ROLLS (RAINBOW ROLL, ROCK & ROLL, SPICY TUNA ROLL, TIGER ROLL...) MUSSELS 6-Piece.....

    The first time I came here I was on a date and it made for a wonderful atmosphere. The rules are all very fresh, delicious, and will definitely keep it coming back for more. Additionally they're all 50% off according to a promotion they have going on right now. I had the caterpillar wall which has baked ill on top, the rainbow sushi roll which is a assortment of fish on top, and the oh my God roll which lives up to its name. It was so delicious that I have returned multiple times and even took my friends from France here recently to try the sushi here. They were just as impressed. Whether you are doing solo dining or coming here for a date night this is a perfect place I even see people bring their young families here as well. This place is definitely worth it and so far the service for the staff has been wonderful every time I've come so I highly recommend it. This is now my favorite place to eat

    2 stars, Sushi is so-so, The new ownership doesn't offer the All you can eat menu which was what kept us coming back in the past.The fun family feel is gone. I also enjoyed the loud music they used to play with pictures on the wall. Always made you feel at home. It's not the same anymore. Also noticed later into the night that gratuity was added 18% on top of me giving them another 20%. Something I guess we need to really start paying attention too. Just for being sneaky is good enough reason they will not get my business again.🤷‍♂️🤦‍♂️🥢

    The rolls were 50% off and because of the pandemic an automatic gratuity was added to the bill to help the staff. The staff was very helpful and friendly. It was a nice dinner spent with family. 🍤🥢🍶

    This is a awesome place for sushi it’s always fresh and never disappoints. They have many items for selection on the menu. The prices are fair and this place has been remodeled since the last time I was here about 1 year ago. The establishment looks brighter and very clean.

    Not sure if all AYCE sushi spots are gone but this location doesn't offer it. Just a heads up. The service was good, food was mediocre. The rice on the sushi kept coming apart, plates came out with long waits in-between, and the ramen noodles taste like cup of ramen broth and all.

    Excellent place. Food and service was outstanding. The place is unassuming from the outside. But the quality of food and service can’t be beat. I’ve been passing this place for years. Recently invited for lunch and was pleasantly surprised with the quality and cleanliness. The experience was so good, that took my family for lunch the following week.😎👊🏽

    Lunch on 11/06/22 Let me start out by saying that I used to come here quite often and LOVED this PLACE. After not having been for a few years, we went again, and sadly, I really don't feel like I will be back. There are either New owners or its under new management management, either way, the warm welcoming atmosphere we once knew is no longer there. All the pictures of staff and patrons sharing good times that lined the walls are gone. In it's place are cold, sterile walls. It's no longer AYCE, which I get. Covid and inflation has probably made that unsustainable, so I can't fault them. Most things are 50% off so it's theoretically still a good deal except the quality of the food has gone down. I ordered a soft shell crab appetizer. The body was missing entirely, I was given only the legs, and they were covered in a thick tempura batter. My husband and I ordered some sushi rolls to share. Out of four, only one was really good, the Tokyo night roll. The rice tasted cold and old, like it was leftover from the night before. The service wasn't great either. Our server came to our table a few times, but always when we had food in our mouths, and never seemed to stick around long enough to hear if we needed something, we did a couple times. I ordered a plum wine, which is very tarsty, however, about ten plus minutes after we received our food, it still wasn't out, and I had to ask for it again. I wondered if I had said nothing if they would have tried to charge me for it. I also almost had to get a fork for a party member myself, as getting her attention long enough to ask seemed to be a little difficult. Lastly, they automatically add a 15% percent gratuity, regardless of party size. However, they base that 15% off of the total after tax, so it's more like 18%. I know these all seem like petty things individually, but all together it was enough. For those who know what Joe's was like, what it's supposed to be like, and what it should be like still, don't go. Joe's is dead, the spirit is dead, and I don't think it'll ever be back.

    My family and I love this place! We have been coming here for several years because the food is delicious, and the staff are wonderful. 💯 The price is good for the amount and quality you get. They don't do "all you can eat", but it usually comes out to cost less in the end than what "all you can eat" would cost us (usually around $30 a person).

    Must have sushi spot if you live in the area Don’t let the surrounding area fool you. As you walk in you are greeted by enthusiastic employees. Seated in seconds (I arrived during Dinner times). All the food was available and our server was thorough enough to ensure we were getting the exact roll we wanted. The drinks arrived to the table in seconds and the food within minutes of ordering. 7 rolls for around $80 Flavor 10 Appearance 10 Portion 10 Price 10

    Went for lunch with 3 coworkers shortly after they opened. Two ordered sushi, and the third and I ordered dishes with cooked items. They served the sushi right away, but it took about 30 minutes for the cooked dishes to come out. At the time we ordered there were around 4 other parties in the restaurant. The sushi orderers had finished long before and were just awkwardly waiting for us to get our food. My salad was nothing to write home about, but my coworkers that ordered sushi really liked their food. It's possible I missed it on the menu, but gratuity is automatically included. My biggest issue with that is the tip worked out to be approximately 44% (my salad was inexpensive, so even with the tax and tip the total wasn't crazy). They also have a tip line on their credit card receipts, so customers that don't pay close attention to theirs could potentially wind up tipping twice.

    There were absolutely no reasons for me to take away any stars. 50% off is always subjective. The sushi was expertly crafted, presentation was mouth watering and the taste and quality did not disappoint. Prices were fair adjusting for recent inflation and food costs. The service was warm and not overbearing.

    Updated furnishing and decor has really brightened Joe's up. Now it matches the tasty food and great service! Pricing is very reasonable, service is always excellent, preparation and presentation are very good. Never had a bad piece of sushi and I've eaten here a LOT! Parking lot is half paved and half gravel. Little challenging for handicapped if they try to park on the side, rather than the fully paved area in the back. Funny name for a sushi restaurant, but well worth the trip! This isn't OC uppity sushi, but a low key, nice sushi place with reasonable pricing and fascistic staff.

    I hadn’t been to this place in years, we stopped in today and I was impressed. The inside is much nicer now. Service and food were excellent. Really impressed how different this place has become. No all you can eat at this time but they made up for it on the reasonably priced rolls. Will be coming more often.

  • 1/5 Isra m. 1 year ago on Google
    Paid $16 for 2 sad looking rolls made by what appeared to be a cheap Chinese restaurant. California roll was ok, The tuna one tasted old and it felt like it came off the buffet table. 1⭐ cause I felt misleaded by the reviews and pictures, and because I had to throw it away. Also my order took less than 5min which suggest it was definitely premade. 👎👎👎👎 If rest manager refunds or remakes my order I'm willing to change my review

  • 2/5 rafael o. 1 year ago on Google
    New owners, but not the same great service. I placed a phone order, went in to pick it up and left, but when I got home I noticed I was short a roll, I called, they told me to come pick it up and I responded with I'm already home I'm not going back so I asked for a refund and the women response was "we don't give refunds" she said I'll give you credit for the next visit and I said fine. Went back a month later and asked about the roll they magically didn't know anything about it. The restaurant has been updated and everything looks clean and modern, but I feel it lost some of it's charm.

  • 3/5 Ariela H. 1 year ago on Google
    I'm giving this restaurant a 3 because their food was decent but holy hell I'm not coming back due to the ambience. Only thing about the food is that too many of their rolls have imitation crab meat. FYI SOME SUSHI IS 50% OFF THIS IS NOT AN AYCE PLACE. Tip is also automatically added to the check. The seating is too close together and it's awkward. Wait staff were shimmying between the open tables. It's echoey and if there's a loud party nearby, it will be magnified.

  • 5/5 Logan 1 year ago on Google
    1000% would recommend to any sushi lover. The rolls are so good you do not even need to dip them in soy sauce or add wasabi. If that wasn't enough, their staff is very polite and professional. Tip the chefs! They will praise you!

  • 5/5 Celine D. 1 year ago on Google
    We were a bit scared that there was no wait on a Friday night but we don’t regret stopping by. There’s a lot of rolls to choose from but the nigiri/sashimi menu was very limited. BUT there’s a special going on where it’s 50% off the menu which was awesome! The sushi tasted fresh and customer service was great. Definitely got a good deal on everything we ordered!

  • 5/5 Georgia P. 2 years ago on Google

  • 5/5 Claudette G. 2 years ago on Google
    I did not expect much but got a lot. I was meeting my son for lunch on Sunday. He had many good experiences at this favorite sushi place of his. Before he moved to the beach he had spent good times with his friends when they lived close by. When I walked in it was a spacious room with a kitchen that was open and huge. There were plenty of booths and comfortable table and chairs and that accommodated groups of families and friends. It was pretty well packed when I came in. I let my son order because I didn’t know what to get. between the both of us we devoured four rolls and each of them were delicious. The fish was fresh the rice was moist everything about the sushi roll was perfect. I have never had sushi so delicious and never probably will. The service was good considering there were so many people as there was so many takeouts that they had to take care of too. We vowed to go back next time we meet up and make this our all time favorite sushi restaurant.

    10/10 would recommend to any who's in the area, very cost efficient and good at the same time. Everytime I visit SolCal I always go here and the inside to well kept!

  • 5/5 Mike Y. 2 years ago on Google
    I haven't been in for years. The service and food is very good! I'll definitely be back in!

  • 5/5 Arianna A. 3 years ago on Google
    × NO LONGER AYCE × The food was amazing. The best sushi we have had in the IE. Not too much rice, fish to rice ratio of the sashimi were spot on. Quality of the fish is definitely noticeable. Even though they are no longer all you can eat, the menu is 50% off so for us it came out the exact amount we spend at other places for ayce. I cannot wait to come back! (We forgot to take pictures of the rest of our plates, we were so hungry and happy we devoured it all.)
