I went in to dinner this past Saturday with 3 of my dearest friends. We were graciously greeted by Joseph and seated in the bar. Our waitress, Catherine, was the most friendly, attentive, and outgoing person that has ever served us. We began our meal by having the Calamari and Cesar Salads. The calamari was cooked to perfection and the salad dressing was worth the trip alone. We then were able to have Joseph prepare 4 Pepper Steaks table side for us. Everything was made to perfection and the meat was heavenly. For our dessert we all shared a crème brulee, a slice of chocolate cake, a key lime dessert, and a slice of carrot cake. The desserts were outstandingly delicious and to this day I still dream of them, Overall, Joseph's is wonderful, beautiful, and definitely the place to go if you're looking for a great meal AND great service.

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.

Let me preface this first by saying we have ALWAYS had great food and service on past visits here. Not sure if this was a one off or because this time we had a Living Social coupon (paid $49 for $99) dollars worth of food). As required, we notified the restaurant upon being seated that we had the coupon. From then on things seemed just a little different. First we were given a "coupon" menu, but the waiter did add we could also order from the regular menu and our $49 coupon payment could be credited toward the final bill, which while a nice gesture....is no different then coming in without one, plus it removed the bottle of House wine included? Duuuh So Apps were great: jalapeno, artichoke mushrooms and potato soup great. Nice fresh bread also. Meals were salmon and beef short ribs. Salmon filet was overcooked and dry, beef was tough.....but more so the meals were luke warm at best. Was temped to say something, but after waiting over an hour for our meal....we didn't want to wait further. Deserts were good. Though "oh well" we only paid $49 for 2 apps, 2 meals, 2 deserts and bottle of house wine.....BUT that's NOT the point. Josephs decided to create the deal to either promote itself, pull in new customers or reward customers. We used our close to the end of the promotional period 11 July, exp 15 July so maybe it was near the end, entrees not readily prepped as earlier in the deal....but still...really out of the norm. We love their calamari, Chicken Pietro and will continue to frequent Joseph's in hopes it was just a one off hiccup. Oh well.

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.
