Always a PleasureLike the best kind of old friend . . . solid, dependable, sometimes exciting and always interesting . . . Joe's is the rare kind of upscale spot where you always feel at home.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSERVICE AND FOOD WAS WONDERFUL.SERVICE AND FOOD WAS WONDERFUL. JOE AND HIS STAFF MAKE DINING VERY ENJOYABLE. 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 AMJoe's consistently the bestFor 15 years, Joe's has been our favorite restaurant. The food is consistently great, never a mediocre dish. The menu changes daily, is always full of fresh ideas, beautifully presented and unobtrusively served by the impeccable wait staff. In a world where nothing seems totally reliable, Joe's is.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love Joe's and come veryWe love Joe's and come very often mid-week and also very often on the weekends for the brunch....

We've eaten there a few times a year, both lunch and dinner, since the 1990s. 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.

The flavors are always fresh and interesting. Unlike other restaurants that have been around for many years, I have never felt that Joe's was operating on auto-pilot. The vegetables are always a highlight, and it's amazing how much flavor Joe's brings out in them.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMJoe's is over-the-top goodJoe's is over-the-top good food.

Even before I finished my lunch, I was wondering how soon I could come back to try everything else.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA Venice InstitutionJoe's is an institution in Venice for a good reason. 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.
Valet parking.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMJoe's has been one of my favoriteJoe's has been one of my favorite restaurants for twenty years.

Definitely will be coming back!3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMMy Compliments to the ChefThis isn't the first time I've dined here, but I hope the owner of this fine establishment and his staff reads over this review. I just wanted to thank all of them for kicking off my 24th birthday with an amazing brunch. My small party arrived a good fifteen minutes past our reservation time due to traffic but we were immediately seated by the hostess. I didn't even mention it was my birthday on the reservation but somehow the staff knew. The bottomless mimosas is truly the breakfast drink of champions as described on the menu. All of the food we tried was delicious. The last time I was here I truly enjoyed their tuna nicoise sashimi. Today I was impressed with their kurobuta honey mustard glazed ham and the dungeness hash.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst KissFirst time visit. A delightful evening.
