Absolutely fabulous sushi/sashimi. I had a fatty tuna and jalapeño roll that was incredible - a special of the day and server recommendation. Very nice interior and attentive service. A vegan in our party was equally happy with the food and recommendations of our server. There are a handful of sushi restaurants in Annapolis, but none on par with Joss.

We have gone to Joss for lunch and dinner for many years. I can honestly say that they serve the freshest and tastiest sushi I have had in the United States. The owner Joe makes sure to select the fish himself. I especially like their spicy tuna hand roll, maguro poke and spring roll. Everything is so tasty! Their lunch... More

I haven't been to Joss's since they expanded to the adjacent property about four years ago. The food and service has always been great, but now they have a much larger area to impress you including outside dining in the rear side of the restaurant not out on the street. Freshest sushi I've ever had.

When we are in Annapolis, we make sure to go to Joss Cafe for dinner because we are assured of having great food and a good time for a reasonable price. The sushi, sashimi, and tempura are all excellent! Sit at the sushi bar for a good view of the chefs at work and enjoy the freshest of food. This... More

For the freshest sushi, with huge pieces, and wonderful service Joss is the ONLY place for sushi in Maryland. It has spoiled us from eating sushi elsewhere as nothing quite compares. Try the spring roll as an appetizer, you will not be disappointed. And then order sushi to your heart's delight. You won't go wrong. You can't!

Huge menu, good atmosphere, although can be cramped on weekends. Menu is high priced...2 handrolls and one samlon roll was $30. Drinks were good price.

This is my son's favorite place to dine when he comes in town. Very fresh fish...and good service. Atmosphere is cozy and lively....lots of tables. Clean and newly renovated. Plus, walking historic Annapolis with the Navy Midshipmen is the perfect setting for a lovely dinner.

My favorite restaurant, probably the best food in Annapolis and probably one of the best Asian restaurants in the Mid-Atlantic. We eat here to celebrate birthdays, anytime we have out of town visitors and we get take out frequently as well. My favorite items are the Crunchy Ebi roll, spicy scallop roll, Tempura dishes, Key West Treasures, Mabo Nasu. We... More

Sorry....This is the place in Annapolis for Sushi. Really fantastic and it's been that way for over a decade. Consistency. A good thing. But we've had some issues with service and attitude. Nice that you're a great restaurant but please cater to your guests. Long story short but we wanted more wasabi and our request was treated as if we... More
