We visited this restaurant because of the recommendations here. We wanted a nice evening in a restaurant with good food, service and ambience. All in all we got what we were looking for and i can fully recommend it. As we love libanesian food we took the Mezza Plate for 2 Persons, which was well prepared and delicious. The meat... More

Had dinner here on Saturday night after many years. The red snapper was "absolutely divine". Just about the best we have ever had. The service was very warm and welcoming and it is such a treasure hidden away in the middle of the capital city. Everyone should try their food. Excellent!

The last time I went to Joseph's the food was horrible, the servers were rude and obviously not... More

I am partial to a the food here. The wine is excellent and priced very reasonable. In particular the diversity of the menu allows anything from traditional steaks and seafood to couscous and a bit of moroccan flavor. Been here before and still enjoy the place.

Beatiful restaurant, good location, poor service, poor food quality, and far too expensive for what you get. I ordered the stuffed mushrooms and the lobster tail. Both seemed as if they were recently frozen and rehydrated and both lacked much flavor at all. My date ordered the lentil soup and also the chefs specialy lamb dish, same poor quality as... More

Joseph's is an authentic realisation of the personality, commitment and talent of its Owner / Chef, Joseph Al Habre, his wife and his family. A warm, genuine personality with a welcoming smile and quiet disposition, Joseph produces an experience that combines delicious food, comfortable and attractive atmosphere, and professional and friendly service.

Tucked away in a beautiful Nook is Joseph's. A peaceful Saturday evening with a bottle of wine and delightful seafood dinner. The staff are professional allow you to dine and converse in your own "bubble" within a great decor - this is fine dining with a touch of ease and relaxation. Don't let it be an occasion, just go for... More

The menu offers a variety of classic Lebanese dishes. From starters to dessert, the offerings are prepared with care and attention to detail. Truly our favorite place, and the incredible staff always welcomes us like family.

I looked for a good Lebanese restaurant in town and Joesph's is it! The food was authentic, just like the food that you would get in Lebanon. The ambiance was great and the décor was lovely. The price is fair relative to the quality and variety offered. I will definitely go there again...the only thing that I did not like... More
