Food was great everything was full of flavor and well cooked. Service was also good. Prices are a little hot so not a place to eat every day but definitely on special occasions.

Great service, great food! Excellent mezza, escargot, red snapper and lebanese wine. Service was perfect. I've eaten at Joseph's a number of times over the years (social and business) and it's always good!

A well appointed restaurant located in the suburbs but close to the city. The restaurant also has a private dining room. The food is international but with added arabic dishes. Food is good and services as well. This is a family run business.
