Their drinks menu is a good read. Cracks me up every time.
I've been to the other "Joey" and this one is great too.
I like to call these restaurants LBDs (Little Black Dress) because the servers are always in black dresses/short skirts. And this is why I come and this is why I tip more. My (female) ex-coworkers gets a kick out of it. I just like the friendly faces and eye candy. Anyway, I'd feel bad for the loser that ends up buying drinks here.... kinda steep... unless the winner ends up liking the daily special.
FYI, Bellinis are special. Mmmmm!

In the middle of swank Robson is this unpretentious restaurant. Food is typical Italian fare, nothing really crazy, and a respectable range of wines, both in glass and in bottle. Looks like they have mostly domestic wines which I don't mind including some Okanagan. No California.
I took a girlfriend but noticed the quality of women dining here. There's a level for those who want to watch leggy blond trophy wives strut their stuff.
Our waitress seemed somewhat deficient and unattractive. Our drink order was promptly filled but we were left looking for her to take our food order certainly because we were under curfew at home and had to be home before my ball and chain. We got another visit to get our drinks refilled and then she seemed to spend the rest of the night talking to the bartender. We got the bill and I left a moderately insufficient tip.
