We went to Brasserie Joel for a pre-Christmas get together and got the Unlimited drinks menu which was £32 for a 3 course meal and unlimited drinks – softs (we had water and tea/coffee after) and house wine/beer (only during starter/main – we had wine throughout). The atmosphere was very nice, the restaurant was pretty full but didnt feel too crowded nor loud. The service was good, our glasses were regularly refilled, the food didnt take too long to arrive but had some intervals between the courses so it didnt feel rushed (considering we were on a drinks package). The food itself was pretty average though – starters of hoisin beef salad and turkey/orange salad were nice, the mains of beef onglet steak and coq au vin were so so – beef being too chewy and coq didnt seem to even smell of vin at all (despite being called Traditional coq au vin) and we had to ask for extra gravy as it was too dry otherwise. Dessert selection also wasnt very inspiring with French toast and chocolate cake and cheese as options.
So overall I'd say it was a good night out – for the atmosphere and the value (only owing to unlimited drinks menu – considering we had almost a bottle of wine each) but wouldn't recommend or go back there for the food.
