All reader reviews by Hugo
Walking around Covent Garden with some friends one evening looking for a place to eat, we saw Navaro Joe's and thought it looked like a great place with a fun atmosphere...
The menu is wide and varied (as you would expect from an American restaurant) however the service was appalling - the worst that has been inflicted on me in a long time. We had to wait an hour and a half for out starters, by which time our stomachs were digesting themselves and upon polishing this off, were re-assured that our mains would be along swiftly afterwards. Another half an hour later and we were presented with the wrong main courses, cue another half hour of hunger and immense frustration.
Once the food did arrive however, it was extremely good. If you are prepared to spend the money, I would recommend their steaks - simply fantastic with generous sized portions.
Despite the poor service (something which other reviewers have picked up on as well) the general atmosphere, cool music and delicious food partly made up for it, I would just recommend going there expecting a long wait and you will be content with what "Navaro Joe" has to offer you as a diner.
