Diner Reviews
  • "Celebrated wedding anniversary and couldn't have found a better place. We noted on our Open Table reservation that this was a special night and restaurant staff repetitively wished us well (so nice!!). Our server, Dell, was amazing! He made food and drink recommendations - all were spot on. The Chilean Sea Bass; Medium Stone Crabs; Roasted Corn; Fried asparagus; and, Pimm's Cup (mixed drink) were outstanding. Dell delighted us by treating us to three - yes, THREE - of his favorite desserts and a champagne toast in honor of our anniversary. It really made an already perfect experience over the top. I am such a fan. LOVED IT!"

  • "We went here for the first night of our trip based on the reviews, and it did not disappoint. The food was very good but what made it great was the service. Everyone was friendly and our waiter was phenomenal. Even the management was nice. We had ordered an appetizer and the manager came over to tell us it was not available anymore. Instead of asking if we wanted something else, he offered a free substitute instead. I would recommend this place to anyone who enjoys quality food and service. Also, try the Havana pie dessert."

  • "Had a great "Date Night" dinner. This is our third experience at Joe's, Miami, Las Vegas and now DC. As always the service was impeccable (ask for Dino), the atmosphere was cozy and the food was unforgettable. Everything was delicious right down to the banana cream pie I had for dessert. Great location too, just steps from the White House. Highly recommended"

  • "I don't eat out much at ala carte digs nor am I really into spending like that though I can afford it. But when I do eat at these places it's nice, especially when others are paying for it. This time I paid. What do you expect from a place like this. It was good food, empecable service and great ambiance."

  • "Thinking that right now this is the best food - and service - in DC. All fish superb. Fried chicken always perfect. And steaks are great. Mark, our waiter, greatest. Happy night. Hope patio dining gets approved!"

  • "And maybe your home mortgage for collateral. The rooms at Joe's are ecquisite. Pillars, chandeliers, high ceilings, gorgeous bar. The food is very good (although the lyonnaise potatoes were disappointing). Everything else was very good -- the crabs, caesar salad, salmon. The lime pie was the best ever tasted. However, what an unpleasant surprise that everything is a la carte -- the entrees come with no sides -- and overall the food and atmosphere did not overcome the expense of eating there. We and our friends will have to put Joe's in the special occasion category because there is no way we can be frequent diners there."

  • "Everything here was top-notch! By far the best steak I've ever had. It was cooked exactly as I requested and it was melt in your mouth tender. The service was fantastic and the restaurant itself is gorgeous. Even the bathrooms are fancy! I would definitely go back for another special event, we celebrated a birthday and it was definitely worth it."

  • "Highly recommend this restaurant when in DC. If you love soft shell crabs then you would love this restaurant. They fly in them daily from Florida and they are well worth the price. They also have excellent steaks and seafood. The wine list is very extensive an the waiter will happily help you choose one that fits you. This restaurant is not inexpensive but well worth a visit. The bar area has a great assortment of drinks and apps if you just want something simple. We highly recommend. This has been our second visit and Oscar, our waiter was one of the BEST waiters! Thank you for making our 18th Anniversary celebration special :) We will be back when in DC again."

  • " We're there for lunch and we got surprised with the place is beautiful, the food was amazing you're really paying for great quality and flavor. We order The Whale as an appetizer and it was delicious, perfectly cooked the same as our entrees Sea Bass and Fisherman's. The service was outstanding, taking care of you 100%. We feel a little bit expensive but comparing with other steakhouse's around I'll prefer to come here and have a great experience!!!"

  • "Totally reminded me of fine dining that we only experience in Vegas. I had bone in Filet, my daughters had the chopped steak and it was all cooked to perfection! We kinda felt under dressed as we had been walking all day in shorts and sandals but the staff treated us very well and our waitress was on the spot with everything! Will definitely be back again!"

  • "Joe's was a great choice for a place to celebrate my girlfriend's graduation. The food was excellent - I had the bone-in halibut which was not only delicious, but also quite a generous portion, and she had the Petite Filet with Lobster Tail. The service was also spot on - every member of the staff I interacted with, even in passing, was so friendly and polite!"

  • "Our evening began with a most friendly welcome by gentlemen dressed in classic tuxedos. The entire wait staff were also dressed in formal attire. The menu is extensive, yet simple. Besides the usual entree items, the side dishes are worth mentioning - fantastic! And we were able to get half-orders of the side items!! (we loved the grilled tomatos) Everyone in our party was extremely happy with the entire experience. Our waiter, Matthew, went above & beyond for us - he even escorted us outside to hail us a cab & made sure we got in safely! We definitely plan on returning & have told all our friends about Joe's. We were so amazed to learn they have not been opened very long. We wish them many years of success!"

  • "My husband and I LOVE and always go to Joe's in Miami. What a wonderful surprise to find they were here in our back door. Food, service, seating, ambience all on point! David took special care of us. Welcome to DC! Thank you Joe's for making our 15 year anniversary even more special with champagne and a special dessert. We will be back!"

  • "We had an outstanding birthday celebration for our son. Matthew, our server, was fantastic. The food was delicious. The drinks were great. Dover sole was memorable. The room was elegant. Only negative--it was pricey, but so is every other steakhouse in DC."

  • "Food was fine, but a bit overpriced. My biggest irritation was that our reservation was for 8:00 and we were not seated until after 8:30. No apology or anything. Unacceptable. I will not be back."

  • "The service and ambience were top-notch, but the food was magnificent. The king crab legs are to die for, but so are the sides. I left thinking of the roasted corn and the key lime pie, in addition to the crab legs!"
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "I continue to try different dishes at Joes. This visit we all had fish. The quality is there, but I have to say that the portion sizes at these price points are quite small, especially considering everything is alacarte. I dont mind paying top prices for quality, but I expect to be full when I leave. I also think serving sea bass as a small thin filet is not the right choice. For dessert the key lime is always great, but the apple pie was disappointing and cold. Service is always very good. It does appear that they have tried to put some more tables in the dining room so it is very hard to maneuver and waiters kept bumping into us. Definitely choose a booth."

  • "My family has been fans of Joe's in Miami for many years and were very excited to try this new Joe's in DC. We decided to celebrate my birthday there and what a great birthday! The staff were top notch, the crabs were delicious (especially the pacific coast rock crab), and the whole experience was elegant and fun. The bar scene also looked fun for a more casual/after work meal. I looked forward to going back and would highly recommend it to anyone for a special dinner in the city."
