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

My partner of 40 years and I were married at the Brown Street Inn. After the ceremony we have an excellent meal at Joseph's. 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.

The food here was comparable in quality and price to what you would get in a nice steakhouse in a large city. I had just returned from a trip to Las Vegas and had a filet that holds up to what I had at Delmonico's or STK. It wasn't very busy for a Sat night, but it was a quiet... More

Joseph's provides a top quality steak cooked to order (which in my experience is no small feat). Price range is upper end, think Ruth's Chris. Good selection of sides although a vegetable or two would have been nice to choose from. All in all the meal was top notch. Only complaint would be the decor which is remincisant of a... More
