Every time I'm in Syracuse, which is at least once a year, I make a point of eating at Joey's and bringing home at least 2 jars of their pasta sauces. The service has always been outstanding--David runs a great bar, and all the servers are friendly and helpful--and the food is authentic Italian. Portions are big, so keep that... More

Excellent food and service. My wife's steak was perfectly done. My manicotti was delicious. The shrimp casino was a nice new take on an old favorite. The only problem I had with Joey's was the atmosphere. When I wrote the first review of this place back in 2005 I noted the upscale surroundings and clientele. Not last night. There seems... More

We had a group of 18 people at Joey's - we hold our retirement events here and this was the sixth time we've celebrated there. We used a small dining area downstairs adjacent to the bar. The staff at Joey's was awesome from the time I made the reservation a month before til the day of. The food is outstanding... More

We and our friends go to Joey's for special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries. All the clientele are adults and the décor is very traditional for fine Italian dining which gives an aura of something a little extra special. We also enjoy the table-side dessert presentation for Bananas Foster! Far superior to the frozen & thawed "Italian" desserts you get... More

I have been eating at Joey's for years. The food is what brings us back. It is always wonderful no matter what we order but my favorite is the Italian filet mignon.The wait staff is always professional and efficient however until our most recent visit on Mother's Day, we have not thought of the staff as very friendly. Our waitress... More

We were both looking forward to a beef filet mignon dinner with baked potato or fries & veg. But while that was on the online menu, it was nowhere to be seen on the printed menu. Instead, the closest we could find was filet tips - which arrived swimming in a thin mushroom sauce and accompanied by a side of... More
