JOEY Woodland Hills, Woodland Hills, CA

JOEY Woodland Hills Restaurant Review

: JOEY Woodland Hills is the first California branch for this Vancouver-based restaurant chain with multiple locations in Canada and a few in Seattle. It’s located in the busy “The Village at Westfield Topanga,” a Westfield shopping center in the San Fernando Valley. Like the mall, the restaurant is large, with 215 interior seats and 101 on the patio. There are also two large bars, so for sure you will find a drink to enjoy. JOEY boasts a modern, elegant décor with a big kitchen --- for that number of guests, no surprise --- visible through glass walls. A few local artists took part in the design, which includes custom-designed gigantic chandeliers that you can’t miss as they are nine feet wide and nine feet tall. The menu is quite long and very eclectic. You will find duck poutine (a Canadian specialty, here made with french fries topped with duck, peppercorn gravy and melted cheese), Korean fried sweet and spicy cauliflower, sushi, salads, Baja fish tacos, burgers, miso ramen bowl, Panang coconut curry prawns, herb crusted salmon, wild mushroom pasta, juicy rotisserie chicken (the best dish) and seven various steaks. While it may appeal to a wide range of taste buds, the menu lacks unity and the preparations need to be mastered to avoid seeming mass produced. Kudos to the homemade ice creams made daily. On our visit, the kitchen had run out of salted caramel, so instead we got chocolate and ended up polishing off two scoops. The molten lava chocolate soufflé (perfect for chocolate lovers) is accompanied by vanilla ice cream that will take you back to your childhood. Skip the tasteless key lime pie for the apple pie. Service is friendly.
