Classy DiningWith a prix fix and an å la carte menu, your options to satisfy your palate are increased. Beyond the usual fare, with elegance, yet unpretentiousness. Service was absolutely splendid!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMStill my favorite Resturant in LA!!I used to work as GM for Joe back in the late 90's. His food was always amazing and still is. It is always good to see some of the same faces as when I worked there years ago. The food is one of the best in the country. I recently moved into the area and had not been to Joe's for years. It is still as good as it was when I worked there. The tuna tartar appetizer still the best I have had anywhere!! The mushroom raviolis are unbelievable and the fish and meat dishes we had where a true delight. I always recommend Joe's to anyone asking me where to dine in Venice. I was so delighted to see Joe cooking!! He has always been very hands on and I think this is the reason for the quality of the food being so high... This place is a GEM!!!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA LUNCH TREASURE!A gourmet 3 course $19 prix fixe menu to satisfy any foodie's discerning tastes, combined with attentive, informative service in a relaxed comfortable outdoor patio, makes JOE'S a must return to dining experience.!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMJoe's is always an all-aroundJoe's is always an all-around wonderful experience.

I have been eating here for many years and am always pleased.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways excellent food, goodAlways excellent food, good service with knowledgeable wait staff and Joe comes out to speak with patrons. Excellent all the way around.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMJoe's has an excellent lunch menu..Overall my experience at Joe's is excellent food and a great place if you looking for a more intimate setting. However, the last two times I have gone to Joe's the service was not as I would expected from such a notable restaurant. I had reservations at noon, the doors were not unlocked until 12:07, so my friend and I stood waiting outside for 10 minutes. Since it was during the lunch hour, I was surprised by the relaxed pace of the service. While the waitperson was perfectly pleasant, the food service was very slow and we had to take our desert to go. I put my panna cotta t in the freezer when I got home, it was still worth the wait. To end on a more positive note, the food was excellent and Joe's has an excellent lunch option menu.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMComfort foodFood was fresh and very well prepared
I've eaten here twice before and
I chose this restaurant because I wanted comfort food and they delivered,

You can count on this restaurant to deliver the best food, service, drink, etc. and the entire experience is top shelf!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMJoe's always pleases!We've been to this restaurant many times, mostly for lunch but occasionally for dinner. The food is always first rate, the service usually good tho' sometimes a bit haphazard, the wine list interesting. We noticed they've added valet parking ($6) for Joe's & 2 other restaurants on the block, which can be a great boon in this neighborhood which is nearly always parked solid. The one thing that rather disappointed us is that when we arrived--well before opening time, to be sure (we weren't aware that our 6pm reservation coincided with their opening time)--there was no place to sit while we waited for the door to be unlocked, & we had an out-of-town guest with us who had foot problems. Others were waiting on the doorstep, too.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceWe have dined at Joe's many times over the years and always enjoy the food & wine.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI met there with businessI met there with business people from out of town.

The food is just outstanding, with unique and delicious combinations. We had the Black Grouper and Salmon dishes on the current menu, both superb. Service is attentive and smooth as usual. We don't usually opt for dessert but decided to try a few. Highly recommend the coconut panna cotta with house made lime sorbet. Worth the calories! Its a treat to go to Joe's and find it humming along at the same high level.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love Joe's ... again and againYou guys are great and we visit at LEAST once a week!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMJoe's is always terrific!I am never disappointed at Joe's, and I recommend it often.

EXPERIENCE.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways wonderfulI love Joe's, their food is wonderful, the bottomless mimosa's on the weekends are fantastic and the staff are always pleasant.
My only ding on the rating for ambience comes from how incredibly warm it was inside the restaurant on Saturday afternoon. We were sweating at our window-side table. The place was packed and it was an un-seasonably hot day, but it was noticeably toasty in the restaurant - upping the air would have gone a long way for our comfort.
But as always, the food was amazing and I'd recommend Joe's highly.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAn all-time favourite overAn all-time favourite over the years. It never disappoints us whether it's for brunch, lunch or dinner.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding presentation althoughThe pork cheeks on the Atlantic cod were too overpowering
Service was outstanding as always5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMJoe's consistently the bestFor 15 years, Joe's has been our favorite restaurant. The food is consistently great, never a mediocre dish.

Highly recommended.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe reason I keep coming backThe reason I keep coming back to Joe's is because I am never disappointed. Fresh, unique, delicious food always. And the lunch deal is the best in town, so much so, that I am almost afraid to share that secret. I brought a friend who had never eaten there before, and she can't wait to return. I consider Joe's my "special" place to go to celebrate birthdays, major events, and special nurturing days for myself... and choose Joe's because I know it will always be special.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMSimple food and lovely atmosphereFood is unpretentious but very good.

Great space, both indoors & on the patio; creative, beautiful & delicious food; attentive service & Joe himself, who is loved by all.
Sit in the room for good people-watching, good art & warm lighting. Sit on the patio for a bit lower noise level & a slightly more casual feel. There's a lovely, small bar in the front, too.
Something for everyone on the menu while keeping the selection tight enough that mediocrity doesn't creep in.
On this Wednesday night, the restaurant was full at 7:45 so the two waiters were a bit busy, but still attentive & personable.
