Joe's of Westlake
Good, as usual.Always count on a good night out when you go to Joe's!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day DinnerI was pleasantly surprised at how quickly we were seated after informing the hostess that our entire party had finally arrived! The food service was speedy as well, they were very nice and attentive, the food was great, the drinks are the bar were well served and we had a fabulous time!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMnice placeWe can find everything for each taste, the food is delicious and the service is great!
The intimate ambience is ideal and the noise level is perfect.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOld School Comfort and Live JazzJoe's of Westlake is our comfort place -- the real Old School that the kids talk about nowadays. Live jazz evenings in the classic bar, sometimes a fireplace lit on chilly evenings. Good for a crowd, for odd times, just for two. When we are wrung out, it's restorative. Ample plates can be split or bagged. Classic American Italian done well. Why seek out retro when Joe's is still doing it right?4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best!Good old-fashioned Italian food. This is a family favorite. Always delicious and enough food for an army!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time impressionsMy first time at any of the Joe's restaurants. Classic old fashioned real restaurant with booths, waiters in real waiter suits (all men, though? maybe not into waitstaff diversity? I'm not sure). But four of us had a wonderful dinner, gargantuan portions. A very popular place, crowds out the door. Reservations highly recommended, and easy to do online. I like the unpretentious, non hipster aspect, just real people,not poseurs. Weird 50's decor, I think it's original, not retro. We nabbed a table at the bar for about 20 minutes while waiting for dinner seating, and had choice of two sports tv's up on the wall, with a live small jazz combo played nice music. Pricey, but huge portions, so we all took about half home. Would definitely go back.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWould have liked if the pastaWould have liked if the pasta dinners had come with salad rather than having to order it separately.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Joe's of Westlake!Love Joe's of Westlake! Old school, legit spot with great, hearty dishes. They don't make restaurants like this any more, but they should. Hope this place never changes.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's always a good time atIt's always a good time at Joe's! Great food, service & ambiance!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite restaurant sinceMy favorite restaurant since moving to SF in 1975...now in Pacifica but still eat at Joe's often (this occasion was our 26th wedding anniversary)...great steak A La Bruno...will be back soon!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMI ordered the chicken parmagianaI ordered the chicken parmagiana with spaghetti. The portion was huge, although the meat sauce from the spaghetti was oily. Everything still tasted very good. For the chicken parmagiania, I wish we didn't have to choose between a pasta and vegetables. Most other restaurants (if not all that I've been to) give you both.
My husband ordered the hamburger. Portion was also huge, but there were no vegetables (the typical lettuce, tomato, pickle) with the burger either.
Service was good. Water kept being refilled, and it was easy to flag down our waiter if we needed something.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMa refreshing step back ina refreshing step back in time and just as good as it was 15 years ago, which is really f'n good! definitely try and make time for a drink in the bar before dinner to get the full effect!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience.
