Very pricey

I thought the food was good, but very pricey. If you're looking for the "typical" Italian food such as pasta, meatballs, veal Parmesan, etc. you won't find it here. It's more gourmet type food. My husband doesn't like it at all.

I have been frequenting Joseph's for many years now. It is my personal as well as close friends' favorite place to go for a get-together! Food is delicious and the selection is wide. Friendly, welcoming atmosphere! The bakery offers a great variety of delicious desserts should your sweet tooth reach out to you! They also have pre-made sauces, pastas, and... More

You know when a restaurant is doing well when they dont take reservations for under parties of five. The pork chop was killer, the grouper was devine and the twist on their egg plant was terrific. Love the potatoes on the Grouper. The house red was a bit bitter, and disappointing. And the little pit bull who takes calls during... More

Excellent wait staff. Management knows what they're doing and makes sure guests are very happy. The food was perfectly prepared and the menu is a good cross section of Italian food both northern and traditional. Didn't get to dessert because we were so stuffed from a great tasting meal.

My recent experience was as good as those over the years. The feel of the place when I walk in is among the best. It seems right. We often sit at the bar and watch sports on TV or watch the people and the bartenders. Wine, bread, bean dip, salad, entree and almond cookie make the meal a pleasure.

The mussels are the best. They are in a red spicy marinara sauce with toasted garlic bread. The raviolis are great too.

We ate here for dinner and enjoyed it. The service was excellent. The menu selection was quite large and included several gluten free options. The food was very good and dessert was great. I would recommend eating here if you are ever in town.

We get take out from here at least once a month and the food is excellent. We usually get gnocci's and ravioli's (the lobster ravi's are unbelievable) and of course a selection of deserts (everything is fresh and unique). Sit at the bar and order take out, enjoy at home or eat in and you'll love it either way. Great... More
