This is a good restaurant. There is inside dining and outside dining. We chose inside because we had an elderly person who has difficulty with loud restaurants. It was well decorated and perfect ambiance inside. Our service was very good, the food was good. The menu wasn't great but is certainly acceptable. I would gladly go here again.

From the moment we walked into this restaurant we were treated with amazing service. Our plans had changed and we arrived an hour early for our reservation. The bar tender took care of getting our reservation moved up while we enjoyed great cocktails and an awesome selection of beers on tap. Our dinner was terrific, everyone in our party of 4 was happy with their meal. We will definitely be back.

Presentation was great. The value for the food was too high.
Steak was too burnt on the outside for a medium well. Special apple pie dessert was dry as if it had made days ago. Appetizer southwest egg rolls semi cooked.

We love Jojo’s! Food is always excellent. We were sat in the back room that has no carpet so the noise echos. Try to sit in the street side dining room! The ambiance there is very nice.

Despite arriving on-time for our reservation, the minute we sat down we felt we were being harried away by the waitress. Cocktails were excellent, but the food, atmosphere & service were poor. Not likely to return.

Overall, we were very happy with the food (drinks were definitely strong!) but the experience as a whole was lacking. We made reservations ahead of time and indicated it was for a special occasion. We were seated directly next to the door, which we didn't object to (figured it was due to distancing of tables). The dining room ended up totally full and at one point, a large group that came from the bar waiting for their table was left to stand surrounding our table with their drinks. Despite ordering soon after we sat down, a table that was seated after us got their food before us. We were given the recommendation as a "date night" spot and maybe that's true if you go later in the evening - we had a very noisy dinner. It ended up being more expensive than we expected for the atmosphere we ate in.

We LOVE Jojo’s! The food and atmosphere are top-notch! Staff is always friendly and helpful. Food is delicious. I am vegan and can always find something wonderful on the menu! I personally like the front room and ask for that.

Great Thai Curry with Veggies. I’d rate higher, but added scallops. I was surprised when the extra $14 resulted in two small scallops!

Hi Beth, Thank you for celebrating with us and taking the time to give us your feedback. We recently changed up our scallops due to the high pricing increase on the larger sizes. I apologize for our error in menu pricing & portion size and have refunded your credit card for the scallop add on to your dinner. We hope you can join us again soon!

Excellent food and exellent service, too!

My significant other and I decided to try Jojo's Sunday night; I live in Frederick and have never eaten here. Our sweet server made us feel right at home, bringing drinks quickly and efficiently. My fellow ordered truffle fries as a starter, and we were blown away by the size of the order! I would recommend that the chef cook the fries a second time, as the ones we got were somewhat limp. Our fried chicken sandwich and crab-stuffed chicken breast were very good, and the lavender crème brûlée had a subtle flavor, not overpowering. The peach sangria was perfect accompaniment to our meal. I asked for a box to pack up all the food I was unable to eat because the portions are ample. Our server was attentive but not hovering, something I appreciate a lot. Now that we have dined at Jojo's and had a good experience there, you can be sure that we will return!

The waitress was really good! My wife and I ordered the steak frites and man oh man the steak was way too salty. We of course did not complain or tell them about it cause the waitress was really super nice and we did not want to make her feel bad.

I enjoyed dinning at JoJos for the first time the other day. The restaurant has a quiet dining room side and a bar side for a fun night out. The menu had great options as well as specials for that night. I will be going back whenever I’m in Frederick.

Space inside is oddly setup. There was little to no music so any silence was very overt. Food was ok but nothing special. Waitress was very nice.

The food was OK. The Chilean Seabass was amazing as well as the pork belly tacos. I had a steak and cheese and the steak came out with a piece of square cheese on it. I expected something a little bit different. Otherwise the service was very good and everything else was very good.
