We were in Iowa City for the biggest game of the season. Kinnick was filled to capacity. We are planners and made a dinner reservation for 7PM. We figured that the game would be over and the crowds would thin out a bit. Our planning worked. Upon arrival at the restaurant there were people waiting for tables. We approached the... More

The experience was great. The service was perfect from the start. The atmosphere was also excellent. The tables were separated with linen type hanging material making the experience even more private. Crab cakes were very good and the steaks were cooked to perfection. This is not a cheap steakhouse by any means. $150.00 for two with appetizer and bottle of... More

My husband made a reservation through Open Table based on the recommendation of a coworker. In the "comment" section of Open Table he mentioned that we were celebrating my birthday, and that I had gluten sensitivity. When we arrived, the hostess led us to a table in a quiet room. The GF menu was already on the table. Our server,... More

There were no complaints from my visit. The food is great. Portions are huge and the quality is top notch. The price is what is expected at any high quality steak house, and it's worth it. There were seafood and steak entrees at our table and all were excellent. Our server was great, she provided great tips for dinner and... More

I'll echo what most reviews seem to have already said...you're paying for the atmosphere. While the food certainly isn't bad, in my opinion, it's overpriced. You can get the same food all over the place significantly cheaper. My lobster grilled cheese wasn't hot. The cheese wasn't even completely melted. Our server, Brian, was very nice, very professional, and made good... More

Had dinner here after an Iowa Hawkeye Football Game a few years back. Visiting a friend and celebrating their birthday, we made a trip back to Joseph's Steakhouse. The food was sumptuous. Filet was fantastic. They make their own salad dressings. The side of Twice baked potatoes with bousin cheese was to die for. (sorry about that preposition at the... More

We wanted to go to a fine restaurant to celebrate this auspicious day in our lives. We weren't disappointed. The staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant was quiet and met our expectations. The food was... More

We walked in off the street feeling slightly under dressed having been recommended by bar staff at a nearby place. We were greeted by the manager promptly and he arranged a table for us. We were served by Christian who kept us well informed, was interesting and personable and professional throughout. Water was kept topped up- a plus for me,... More

The atmosphere is a bit stark and the food is very expensive. Expect to pay at least $200 for a group of 4. We went for a special occasion and it was nice.
