Had a great dinner here with some of our neighbors celebrating a birthday. Everything we had from the appetizers and cocktails to the main course was excellent. The entire wait staff was superb taking care of us. Definitely not cheap to dine here but I feel it's quality worth paying for when you go here. Great place to go for... More

Convienient to highway and parking (fee). I had heard great things; maybe my expectations were too high? We made reservations for Valentine's night. The steak for two was delicious but not worth $88. It is served with the juice, which was a nice touch. We also had a salad for two $22. The salad was good and had chunks of... More

I have been wanting to go to Joseph's for a long time, hearing how good the steaks were. The steak was very good, but nothing different than other steak houses. I found the creamed spinach to have an odd taste and the potatoes were just fair. If I am going to spend that much money, I expect something SPECTACULAR! The... More

Their steaks are from the same place as Peter Luger's....and it's what you would expect from a NY style steakhouse. Prices are reflective of the same. I actually had the lamb chops....which are always good. The bone in rib eyes are a favorite as well. My colleagues always order a side order of bacon...which is delish. So is the creamed... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant which was recommended by friends. We started out with a cold fresh Caesar salad prepared with just the amount of dressing. We then ordered the Baked French Onion soup which was delicious. My wife ordered the Filet Mignon medium rare with mushrooms which was cooked perfectly tender juicy and was so good.... More

Yes the food is delish, it's an upscale steak house. However, what makes me want to pay $200+ for a meal for two is the service. I was extremely impressed by the service. They are attentive and kind. This restaurant is extra special to me because I got engaged here! :)
