It is so much better since they remodeled and updated their restaurant. The prices are a little bit higher but definitely worth it.

I recall going to Joe's as a kid and really enjoying it. We now live in the East Bay but come to the City often enough that we missed Joe's when it closed. Happy to say, we really enjoyed our meal. Of course, for our...More

We have visited Joe's several time during different times of day. Though usually busy, we have never waited more than 10 minutes for a table. Though casual, the tables are set with care with white tablecloths and napkins. Warm bread and butter will soon greet...More

When Joe's closed I was devestated. As a native San Franciscan Joe's was the place to go to get classic Italian food, cooked by a generation of Italian cooks and served by tuxedo wearing waiters. I recently went to the newly opened Joe's to have...More

Waited over 2 hours for a table for 4. However, we finally got a small table in the lounge which was very nice.

The best old school Italian steak house around....STRONG drinks. We went almost weekly for either lunch or dinner. Sold due to illness of owner. Will open again with similar food but I don't know when.

another one bites the dust. Sad to see the end of an era for many of us that grew up in the area. On my last visit, I was looking closely, and honestly, 50 years of grime was showing. I hope they can preserve the...More

So sad that Joe's is being remodeled and rebranded (read: killed). This was our family favorite for five generations, from my great grandmother to my adult children. Sorry my grandchildren never got here. The decor was vintage '50s, just now reaching truly retro. I'm sorry...More

Joe's of Westlake is a landmark restaurant started in 1956 by Bruno Scatena and is still family owned and operated. We provide the best in classic Italian-American cuisine in a comfortable environment. Enjoy a reasonably priced cocktail poured by our experienced bartenders while taking in the sounds of live music in our lounge. From the moment you walk in, the aroma of delicious food and unique "Joe's decor" will take you back to a simpler time. We know you'll love us. We can accommodate parties of up to 60 people and we have plenty of free parking. We are the ideal venue for your special occasion. We have an exhibition-style kitchen and invite guests to sit at the counter and watch the unbelievable show performed daily by our hard-working cooks. Too busy to cook, Joe's provides to-go service for all of your needs.
