Thoughts on Brasserie Jo?

We've got a group of 7 women who would like to have a last-minute dinner in Boston on Sat thought Pops would be a good idea but they are booked, as are many good spots. Brasserie Jo seems to have availability; I haven't been in years but I seem to recall some good overall thoughts on the place here at chowhound. Can anyone confirm or deny based on recent experiences? Also, any thoughts on spots that might be worth checking out that we could actually get into --with reservations? Thanks.

  1. I was there about a year ago and had a lovely meal. It was relaxed and unrushed, the wait staff was great and I especially enjoyed ending the meal with their cheese selection.

    1. The "pommes dauphines" are fantastic. I believe is it pate a choux mixed with mashed potato then fried. They are fantastic and something you dont find everywhere. I reccomend that you order a kir as well.

      1. I have consistently good experiences at Brasserie Jo. It delivers exactly what I expect - great brasserie food with impeccable service.

        1. I am also a very big fan of the place. I have honestly never eaten anything that wasn't delicious there. I've had crappy service but only once or twice.

          1. Add me to the fan club. I don't go often but I always enjoy it. Had the onion soup and croque monsieur recently and have had steak tartare in the past.
