Three dynamic, young and hard working owners make each customer feel welcome from the time you begin the Joy eating experience.

The restaurant is small and intimate on the inside and also offers limited seating outside on the sidewalk. For lunch you can enjoy sandwiches and salads all very reasonably priced . Their entrecote steak sandwich is heavenly .

In the evenings you can make a dinner reservation before 8:00 but after that it is first come first serve and there is usually a line. Shlomi and Alon, two of the three owners, are usually on hand to greet you and make you feel appreciated and there is usually room at the bar while you are waiting for a table. In the evening once you are seated, the romantic atmosphere and friendly service will set the stage for a memorable eating experience. Their entrees are all excellent and the prices cannot be matched. Each dish served is an artistic creation by the chef and co-owner.

If you are looking for a little night life here in Jerusalem, try Joy Grill after 10 Pm - the atmosphere is young and trendy - video music can be seen and heard on the TV overhead. The bar offers an extensive list of alcoholic beverages and the beers are imported. My sons and their friends should write the bar review! I'm sure they would rate it 5 stars.

From eLuna Members:
Submitted by: Fredi E. Date: January 09 , Description: Recently returned to JOY after not being here for awhile. Shlomi, Allon,and Aviram are busy all the time reinventing the place. The look is new, sophisticated but laid back and chef Israel is constantly fine tuning the menu. The night we were there, despite the fact, that it was a Sunday, was packed. I guess the word is out [about Joy Grill] on the street. Everything we ate was new and innovative. Everything , including the presentation, had a bit of a twist to it. For example, the lamb filled cigars came in a champagne glass! Will leave the other surprises to you. Some of the new items on the dinner menu are fish kebabs in a lime sauce, lamb kebabs grilled in a tomato couli and chicken livers sautéed in a sweet red wine and onion sauce.
The German Colony is the closest thing we have to the Village and JOY is one of the best. Prices are very reasonable for this quality of food and a reason to hang out here.
