Went here for dinner alone and i must say if you know about good food you would rate this restaurant 3 star. The food was just ok nothing to talk about The prices doesn't match the taste of the food. Service was very good.

Nice ambiance, menu is excellent, good service...you must try a coffee after your meal. Also ask Joseph to surprise you with a special entrée...he would indulge you!

Visited for restaurant week this time. It was the first time that I have ever seen it so packed...of course restaurant week...However, I think that this made the service stand out a bit more since they were able to cater to our needs despite having a completely full night. Food was wonderful as usual, very tasty and the right amount... More

Took my fiancee and some friends here for a dinner. The drinks are horribly over priced. Service is mediocre - too many poorly trained young people. They aren't intentionally rude either, just lacking polish. Food never disappoints! What upset almost everyone at our table were the parking "attendants"...the men out there are appallingly rude. My best friend described one as... More

I am surprised that I missed this restaurant, given that I have probably passed on the street quite a number of times. It is an elegant restaurant, the food was delicious and I quite enjoyed my visit. I must also comment that the food was served very quickly for a group of eleven. I have already decided that this will... More

I went there forgetting it was secretary week. Even though I did not try their escargot and frogs legs, their lunchtime menu was a lovely twist, different from the usual restaurants here. The team were pleasant, I was filled to the brim and I have to return for those frogs!!!

I had a lunch date with friends at Joseph's and it was a wonderful experience. The ambience was one of a relax, casual, warm and friendly. I enjoyed the lunch and their delicious carrot cake. The chef was at one time part of our conversation. He came to ensure the meals were to our expectations.

I took my team there for lunch and thought the menu was just ok, with rather expensive fare but not really worth it..I should have taken a cue from the fact the restaurant was empty at lunch.. Would certainly notdo this again with a group. I think there are better options in POS......
