JOEY Restaurant celebrates spring & summer with new menu in Woodland Hills, California

JOEY Restaurant made its California debut on December 4, 2015 at The Village at Westfield Topanga. Since 1992, the restaurant chain has made its way south from Canada along with three locations in Washington along the way. The cuisine is Modern-American with touches of Canadian flare as well. You will see this in some of the menu items below. Executive Chef Chris Mills leads the culinary team and sources local businesses, farmers, and suppliers for a regionally sourced menu.

The interior is very warm yet has an artistically earthy feel. The dining room uses dark wood to maintain a steakhouse-like feel. The kitchen is glass-encased so you can see everything that goes on from the sushi station, the grill line, rotisserie, to the liquid nitrogen ice cream. 

The patio area uses lighter wood and earthy tones along with the intertwining trees and contemporary shaded design. The service is friendly and attentive.


Blueberry Mojito ($13.25) is back for the summer! It is made with blueberry vodka, fresh blueberries, lime juice, organic cane syrup, and mint. This beautifully stunning libation has hues of purple, blue and green. The taste is refreshing and but is not too strong. It is an excellent drink for summer. Rating: 4.5/5

Grilled Spanish Octopus ($14.50) is citrus glazed and served with sun-dried olives atop a fennel and grapefruit salad. The octopus has a smoky flavor and tender texture. The vegetables contribute a crispy, refreshing texture. It has a very spring/summer feel to it. But the octopus portion is a little small for the price. Rating: 4/5

Duck Poutine ($13.50) is duck confit, peppercorn gravy, and cheese curds atop thick-cut fries. This is a poutine you might find in a Canadian poutinerie. The thick gravy lovingly clings to the fries with ease. The big gooey cheese curds are creamy and salty. The duck confit is rich and a little crispy like carnitas. Rating: 4.8/5

The Butcher’s Sandwich ($18) is made with shaved slow-roasted beef, smoky au jus, crispy onions, Dijon, and rosemary salt. The sliced roasted beef is beefy and tender as can be. The beefy flavor works well with the Dijon mustard. The baguette holds up well to the juices of from the beef and even when dipping in the au jus. The au jus is beefy and adds a richness to the sandwich. The fries are crispy like potato sticks, like French fries meets kettle chips. Rating: 4.8/5

Rotisserie Bistro Plate ($19.50) is made with their signature chicken that is brined for 24 hours for maximum moisture and then spit-roasted hourly to perfection. The seasoning on the chicken is amazing with savory and herbaceous notes! The chicken is tender and juicy. The gravy is fantastic with a rich chicken flavor – great for dipping the chicken and fries in. The cole slaw is creamy like something you would have on a picnic. Rating: 4.5/5

Spun Daily Ice Cream is made to order. Liquid nitrogen (which is -321°F) is combined with a house made ice cream base. When the liquid nitrogen hits the ice cream base, it freezes instantly, producing extremely small ice crystals. The end product is the smoothest and creamiest ice creams you’ll ever have. Flavors include Tahitian vanilla, double chocolate, maple, strawberry, and salted caramel.

Spun Daily Double Chocolate Ice Cream ($6) has a deep rich chocolate flavor. It has a dark chocolate liqueur quality about it. It has a luxurious texture and I would not be surprised if they used a high quality cacao for the intense flavor. Rating: 4.8/5

Spun Daily Salted Caramel Ice Cream ($6) has more of a caramel flavor. It is just slightly salted. It tastes like a custard or crème brulee in ice cream form. Maybe a light sprinkle of salt flakes would push it more to the salted caramel realm. Rating: 4.5/5

If you’re looking for something new, JOEY Restaurants is a great place to eat and relax on a summer’s evening.
