An amazing place, my wife and I walked in not knowing what we were getting in to. The Calamari was good not the best we had had but still good, my wifes seafood dish was amazing everything was cooked perfectly. My lamb chops were the best i had ever had. High price aside hands down best dining experience ever.

This place is second to none! Firstly, don't trust people with only 1 review. Clearly they could not afford to eat here and are sad that they did not get Cheesecake Factory proportions on their plate. The fact is, I have clients come in from around the country that ask if I can make reservations here in advance because they love it. Joseph is a classically trained chef who has spent a career making people smile, and I love coming in to see him. He knows the wine pairing I prefer, the way I like my peppercorn steak cooked, etc. I don't know what people are talking about with "they looked at me disapprovingly" that's nonsense. I have come in wearing a t-shirt, shorts and flip flops and still get the same service I get when I come in and drop $400 on a group. The Bananas Foster is worth the trip all by itself. But if you want a real treat, try the calamari! Not only is the presentation worth it, but it's the best I have ever had, and I am really critical on calamari. The ONLY little thing I am not a fan of, is the Scallops. I am pretty particular about those, and only prefer them a very certain way. Outside of that, this place really should be on your bucket list.

My girlfriend and I went here for a special dinner. The result was we were ignored, completely. Our waitress didn't come to our table for over 20 minutes. Then she only returned to bring us our food and then the check. While she was ignoring us she was happily chatting up the other guests and bringing them free samples of wine and generally being great. Then to top the evening off they put in a mandatory 20% tip, even though their receipt said that was only for tables of 6 or more. I can only assume it's because she thought we wouldn't tip her for the abysmal service. I have received better and more polite service at McDonald's.

When my friend and I walked into Joseph's it was pretty empty. An older gentleman approached us and asked if we had a reservation. We said no and he heaved a sigh and walked over to the host stand. Just then, another group walked in behind us and he looked up and said "right this way," ignoring us entirely. Maybe he was just having a bad day and knew those people, but we left after looking at the high prices and being shrugged off. No idea if the food is any good, and I don't intend to find out.

We had dinner New Year's Eve. My salad came and was not as described in the menu. I don't care for cucumbers and my first bite was a cucumber (not described in the list of ingredients). Yuck. My duck came and each piece had flabby, slimy fat. It couldn't be chewed. I had to take it out of my mouth and cut the fat off each piece. Not much meat to eat after that! Duck should have the fat seared! The sauce was good, but sweet. When we made reservations there was not a mention of a special menu for the evening. Much reduced in choices. My friends ordered steak that was just ok. No sauce was offered and when requested all they could bring was a bar bq sauce. My husband liked his halibut. Very expensive, not what expected. I liked the older facility better, too. The new location was cold feeling and not cozy like the other one. OH, and the music was Christmas. By New Year's I really am tired of Christmas music and would have enjoyed something more appropriately festive. We've been to Joseph's several times, but now probably off our list. Shame.

I choose Joseph's Fine Dining for my wife's special BIRTHDAY DINER. I stopped in to see Joseph because it required him to make a dish that was not on the menu. I told him to charge me anything he wished. He assured me that it would not be a problem at all. I also talked to him on the phone twice to insure the night would be perfect for me wife. The end result was a disaster for the both of us. What was served to us was not even close to what he assured he would to do. What we ended up with was terrible food. Joseph DOES NOT LISTEN, CARE, and ruined my wife's special day.

Food is pretty good for a Fine Dining place. Compared to Chili's its' amazing, yes. But compared to say, Del Frisco's or Pepper Tree or even Eidelweiss, it's on the bottom end. Been here 3 times now still. Decor is really nothing special. Beyond nothing special. Service is hit or miss. There's one guy there who might be the owner or manager who is really rude every time we go in. The rest of the staff, especially a female hostess/waitress is really great most of the time. Fair price though, so that makes up for some of it.

Very impressed. I was a little negative before I came due to our inability to get reservations prior to the expiration of gift certificate. We didn't expect or even ask them to honor it but they did anyway. There were three people working the floor. An older gentleman was doing some table side cooking (maybe Joseph?) and another lady and man were taking orders and bringing out food. They worked together very efficiently and professionally. Our food was fantastic. We are definetly going to go back and try the filet that he was cooking tableside even though the place is not remotely close to our house. Honestly one of the best overall experiences we've had in the Springs and we've hit most of the fine dining establishments.
