We ate at Joe's for the first time almost 25 years ago and then again 10 years ago and had wonderful memories of a fine dining establishment. We spent Christmas in Miami and decided to visit on Christmas eve. We arrived just before 5pm, enjoyed a drink at the bar and were lucky enough to be in the first seating after getting our names on the list.
After hearing our names called and being seated, our experience went downhill. Our waiter was not friendly and not interested in our dining experience, and this was not how we remembered the restaurant. And we noticed that there seemed to be more wait staff than customers in the restaurant while we were there. We began to feel that it seemed to be a race to see how many people could be rushed through their meals and how quickly the tables could be turned for new customers. For what we paid for this meal, rushing and a complete lack of service should not have been what stood out the most. Not sure if we will ever go back after watching the revolving door of service(or should I say lack of service) just to make a buck!
