Very nice steak

Great ambiance and pleasant service, if a tad slow for my taste. The tuna starter was a little heavy-handed with the avocado. The bisque was very nice. Steak and mashed potatoes very good indeed. Overall a very nice experience.

Service was fantastic. The steaks were a little less impressive than other steakhouses I have visted across the country. I was a little underwhelmed. But, to be fair, we were a very large group and were served from a pre-set menu. The cold shrimp were exceptional as an appetizer!

Although I love a good steak, I don't eat a lot of red meat. So, when I do, I want to make sure it's going to be really great. As a resident of Iowa City, that sends me to Joseph's once or twice a year. The service is typically excellent, with the occasional glitch expected of any restaurant, and the... More

This is the first time that my wife and I have dined locally on our anniversary in about 5 years. Who knew that Joseph's was this good. Considering some of the other restaurants that we have been to this one did not disappoint. I would recommend it to anyone and we will definitely be returning soon.

I went with a group of friends and waited for about 1.5hr. We waited at the bar. The drinks were good but the bartender was very rude. No one called our names for the available table even though there were about 10 available tables. After I asked they gave us one and we were hoping that with such a long... More

My friend and I googled restaurants nearby us and decided to give Joseph's a try not having any idea if we were heading to a shack, bar or fine dining style restaurant. The atmosphere was very elegant for a romantic dinner, I could tell this was going to be pricey. Opening the menu which did not consist on pages, just... More

Went to Joseph's after the Iowa game last Saturday. The service was top notch, but I guess I'm not into this type of food. The chicken (all I could afford) had a lobster texture (I think it was brined). Didn't taste bad, just a different texture for chicken. The meal came with a salad, but a baked potato is $5... More

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
