The ambiance, the food, the waiter, the chef, and the entertainment were everything you expect from a great restaurant. Anyone who says something to the contrary is a nitwit. Will we go back? You betcha! By the way, the calamari was the best I have eaten, and the scallops were perfect! In other words, I guarantee you will love this restaurant!

This is a gem of a restaurant. The night we were there had a small live combo, and the vocalist and musicians were excellent. The menu items all sounded scrumptious, and my selection, a bison burger with chipotle cream cheese and bacon demi, was absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend.

Chef Joseph’s at the Connoisseur was a delightful experience. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire evening, commenting several times that the restaurant has the “Supper Club" feel of a NYC eatery. We initially ordered a red wine from their Reserve list, but because it was out of stock, we were rewarded with the opportunity to select from the chef’s “hidden wine list,” literally a handwritten list on a notebook piece of paper, offered by our excellent waiter, Ben. The Napa Valley cabernet we selected was excellent and complemented the ravioli, short ribs and ahi tuna special perfectly. The jazzy vocalist, accompanied by a double bass and piano, put a lovely exclamation point on the evening.

This was our first visit to Chef Joseph's and it will not be our last. We selected it based on a friend's recommendation and are glad we did.
My wife had the Ravioli and I had the Mahi....both were excellent. We were a little disappointed in the wine list but found out after the fact there is another hand written list and changes frequently so it is not on the table. Wish we had known. We will next time!
The atmosphere reminded us of restaurants found in Chicago: small, great ambiance and a live pianist and singer.

I really enjoyed lunch with a client here. The service was very professional although not very engaging. The hostess was pleasant and prompt. The restaurant was 30% full for lunch and the preparation and delivery of food was timely. Quality and taste was above to significantly above average. Value was consistent with a professional sit down business lunch.
