If you hate lines, weekend brunch reservations are easily available here - even at last minute. The decor is classy but not pretentious, and they have multiple rooms for private parties. A cute date would be a meal at the counter near the kitchen activity. If you're cheap like me, the meatball sandwich at $12.95 (no longer on the brunch menu but you can ask your waiter for it) was enough for brunch, and with leftovers for dinner. Walk off your meal after with a walk in Washington Square park right outside.

Classic San Francisco joint. Straightforward steaks and burgers cooked on a charcoal grill, tangy sourdough bread, traditional ravioli with meat sauce, and some of the best martini's in the city. Never a dull moment at the counter or bar.

I love that place. I used to go a few times when it was still in the Tenderloin. They did a great job with putting it into North Beach. I had there cheese burger with the meat Ravioli. It is amazing. Plan to it in 2 meals so, its huge. Great place. Will go again!

I was visiting SF with my daughter and had a wonderful day walking through the city and enjoying the sights. We were recommended to Joes and decided to try it. The greeting at the door was great, the waitress was quick and friendly. I ordered the Lasagna which was one of the specialties. My daughter ordered the linguine Alfredo. When my meal came the cheese was so think on the top that I had to scrape it off. Under the cheese was one soggy lasagna noodle with more of the same mozzarella cheese. It was the worst lasagna that I have ever had. I did not eat any of it. My daughters Alfredo was not like any alfredo sauce that I have ever had. Very thin and the noodles were very dry. When the waitress asked me if anything was wron when she saw that I had not eaten it and I told her it was terrible she just shrugged, took it away and gave me the bill. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone

Had brunch at Original Joe's which took over the old Fior D'Italia restaurant of the 70's. They did a great remodel. Service was average but the brunch was delicious and presented well. The Christmas decorations were delightful also.

Great spot for people watching if you eat outside. Can't go wrong with the ravioli. My companions had the spaghetti and they liked it as well. It was lunch so we weren't feeling adventurous.

Original Joe's is great! For large parties or intimate dining for two, this is the spot. The servers have a great sense of humor and take care of all the details. The food is delicious. The price is very reasonable; in fact, I'd say you get a good value for the high-caliber meal served.
