Good food from good people

New Year's Eve did not detract from the warm, friendly atmosphere and very good food. Main dishes were excellent; key lime pie for dessert was a bit too tart and sweet. Service was a bit slow.

I eat out a lot, like to try new places and really appreciate quality ingredients. Josephs has always been outstanding. I only go for special occasions, but each and every time I have not been disappointed. Its a hidden jewel within Haverhill that many I am sure overlook.

We go to Joseph's regularly for lunch. The best thing about it is you get amazing bread olives and bean dip to start...a truly outstanding entree and then a cookie at the end of your meal for the cost that most area restaurants would charge you for a salad. it's the best deal in town at lunch.

Have enjoyed Joseph's for about 8 years. It has been so popular with the local and finicky foodies from afar.excellent choices from Robert, Head Chef. Regardless of the entries, you will be Delighted. I enjoy the Veal Piccata, Osco Bucco and the Trio Pasta Appetizer to name a few. The homemade pasta is also for sale along with sauces, soups...

Had dinner here with a family member and was so pleased by the quality of the food, it was absolutely delicious. We had fresh pasta with stuffed chicken breast and a calamari dish. Everything was perfectly seasoned, hot, and we cleaned the plates! The tiramisu was also very good. Have eaten here many times over the years and have experienced... More

Joseph's is a fine, Italian restaurant among a region with many good ones. They always have a few out of the ordinary specials, last night scallops and chicken for example. They make all their pasta and they have mastered the sauces as well. Their standard menu has both pastas, many with 1/2 portions, as well as many standard ones.they always... More

Had lunch today at Joseph's - while the prices may scare some away, you get what you pay for! Lobster, asparagus risotto for an app, delicious and enough for 3 but the two of us ate it all. Pan fried sole on a spinach bed, with gnocci and lemon reduction for lunch, delicious. Brought some home. Striped bass special, delicious.... More

The food at Josephs's is excellent. However, the restaurant is noisy and the wait staff is just OK. They don't accept reservations but they do take call ahead which sometimes doesn't always work. If they could get their front-of-house operations as good as their kitchen, this restaurant would be outstanding. The bakery is very good.
