Really nice ambience and excellent service. Great food and choices. No air conditioning as open but has fans. Don't dress too warmly. Been several times before and always had a great meal

I have to compliment Chef Joseph and his staff who are always so welcoming and treat us like family every time we visit! I try to take different items off the new menu, as all are delicious with great tastes and textures combined. And even if you're not feeling hungry, there's a nice appetizer menu that's sure to make for... More

If you're looking for a well designed, cozy restaurant with great food, excellent service and always a quick personal hello from the chef himself, this is the place! The new renovations have made hosting an event even more appealing, but don't take my word...visit them! We sat on the patio , under the stars and by candle light! Only place... More

I had to arrange a business dinner at Joseph's. There is a room in the back for private meetings which was perfect for us and can hold maybe 15-20 people. I have to admit I was a little busy to eat, but my 5 guests thoroughly enjoyed their meal. The location is excellent. Parking is okay. Service was fairly good,... More

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
