After a long day of travel, this was an oasis. It just happened to be my husband's birthday, but mostly chose this because it was close to our hotel. Such an awesome surprise. It was fairly late, so the crowd was thinning, and we asked a couple on their way out what they had and if it was good. She... More

Went to Joey's twice in the cold of January. The bar area is inviting and "private" with a great selection of drinks, TVs to catch games & friendly bartenders. The dining experience is just as impressive. The wait staff is also friendly and is knowledgeable about the offerings. Fresh bread & garlic butter to dip; the menu selection is vast... More

My biz partner and I timed out trip across New York State Thuway so we could enjoy another meal at this great spot. It was holiday season so the downstairs resto was packed with a 15 min wait so we ate upstairs at Joeys Pronto and were seated immediately. We split an appetizer of Utica Greens a must whenever you... More

Food was tasty and served hot and fresh. The service was very prompt and friendly. Ask how much the specials cost as they can be pricey. Our only complaint was we had a gift card and the machine in the restaurant would not accept it. We had to pay the entire bill by credit card. A phone call the following... More

We needed a place to eat as we were staying in Syracuse overnight on our trip to MI. We were so pleased with this restaurant. The meal was fantastic, the service excellent and since it was right next door to the motel, very convenient. Reasonably priced too!

My wife found the new cookbook written by former Utican Joey DeCuffa and decide to take me there (to his restaurant) for my birthday. We made reservations several weeks in advance for 6:00 p.m. I was surprised when the reservationist told me that for parties larger than, say, three or four, a credit card would need to secure the reservation,...

Dinner here in a Friday night is busy. Had the salmon special and the cavatelli. Servers are friendly, bar tender makes good drinks. I would suggest reservations. Service was a little slow. Appetizers and bread was tasty. Bar area is large and had big screen to watch sports. Dining in bar area.
