Being Mother's Day, I was given the opportunity of choosing a restaurant in Annapolis at the last minute. When we walked past Joss Cafe & Sushi Bar, I thought it might be a really great evening to eat here. Since we are from Connecticut, this...More

I typically love this place but, this last visit was not good. We waited 30 minutes when quoted 15 minutes, then we were seated at a very unappealing window bar where pedestrians stared at us eating. Unfortunately, there were NO sweet potato tempura rolls which...More

We LOVE sushi and always seem to find great sushi bars wherever we go and Joss makes our list. We went early on a Wednesday, 6:15 and the place was filling up quickly. The menu is extensive. We ordered two specials, some sashimi and had...More
