Interesting interior design, minimizes noise, good privacy, well trained wait staff and very good cooking. They pass the test of how well do they do what they are trying to do. Pleasant place and experience not expected in a medium sized college town

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.

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.

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
