“NYC Pizza...”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Coming from the NYC area and expecting to find good pizza on the west coast is quite a challenge. I tried many of slices and the only one that is worthy of another visit or praise is Joes' in Santa Monica. I knew when I walked in the door that this place reminded me of my favorite slice joint in NYC with the same name. It was a former employee who brought the NYC Joe's to Santa Monica.

“Shocking service and appalling attitude.”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

I've traveled the world and have Never met such snobby and obnoxious service. I'm
British, so should understand the word snobby!
From the minute we arrived the 'front of house' attitude (guy with glasses- watch him ;-) ), seemed to takes a dislike to our British accent. Inferiority complex??

Anyway, I heard him advise his compatriot "table 50".
(Are you reading this spectacle man?!)
That was the table at the back of the annexe of the restaurant bathed in darkness.

After we complained, we were moved to the main part of the restaurant.

The server assigned to us was just pathetic. I wished I'd got his name so that I could name and shame him.
His colleagues serving us drinks and bread were excellent.

He though had no idea and obviously little training in the art of charm and decorum, let alone acting like a host.

The food was good. Not very good. Read my other reviews about restaurants in Santa Monica.

Sorry Joe's.

You have let yourselves down badly.

Front of house - much needed practice in welcoming and looking after guests rather than acting like a store assistant serving Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. (If you don't know what I mean then ask your wife!)
;-)

Wouldn't advise anyone to visit if they like great food with a great atmosphere and service v

“A slice of NY in LA”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

I go to Joe's at least once a week, and have yet to be disappointed. It's fast and cheap, and the pizza tastes great.

It's not the biggest place, but the location next to the beach is ideal.

It's my fave place to eat when I'm on the go.

“Good food, good price”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Pizzas are perfect, thin crust, heated in the oven just after order. Garlic bread was great, you should definitely try!
