    Joseph prepared our spinach salad tableside & never spoke a word. He started one pepper steak cooking & disappeared. The meat was on so long unattended it started to smoke & people were looking. Another waiter noticed and turned the steak which was burned black on the bottom. Joseph showed up & muttered something about it would still taste good & he would give us free dessert. I was able to eat the steak but felt he should have apologized & lowered the bill; 1 cheap dessert was hardly sufficient. He acted like he was put out he had to cook pepper steak tableside which is his speciality. He's never been friendly but we've overlooked it before because the food was always good but now there's no reason to return.

  • Slow, old school "fine" dining
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 5/12/2013
    Joseph's seems really old and stale. Even though we had a reservation and our table was sitting there ready, we had to wait 10 minutes to sit down. While the wait staff was very pleasant, it was all just very slow. The food was just ok, and the desserts did not taste fresh at all. They were out of the dessert we wanted and just brought something else rather than giving us a choice, which made me think they were out of other desserts as well. The decor was old and tired, and the chairs were extremely uncomfortable. What should have been about a two-hour mother's day brunch turned into 3 hours, and I really just wanted to go home.

    It's the service that brings us back time & time again. Rick & Catherine can take care of every table better than 5-6 servers do at any other restaurant. They not only make sure everyone is well taken care of, but they take time to get to know us...their customers...their bread & butter. Other restaurant owners need to take lessons from these two on how to provide great service & put the guest first; after all it is us that keeps them in business. Job well done Rick & Catherine.

    Warm, friendly, lovely environment with delicious and interesting food preparation in a more traditional style. It's so nice to still have some choices of good restaurants where the food is prepared on site from fresh items. Joseph is a gem! The service was just right as we'd met friends we hadn't seen in some time and felt taken care of without intrusion. Will definitely return.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIP
    Dined on 2/27/2013
    As usual, another awesome meal. Our waiter kept us entertained & mesmerized as he went from table to table taking orders & never writing anything down...and this place was busy. We took his advice on meal suggestions and he was right on!! Three let downs with Joseph's: 1. The prices! Joseph keeps raising prices! 2. The drinks! Don't let Joseph pour your drink or glass of wine! Not only does he seem to constantly SHORT you, but most of the time he forgets & you have to remind him about it! 3. You don't see Joseph helping out alot. He seems to stand around as the waiter runs the place!

  • Big Night at Joseph's
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 2/1/2013
    This was our third or fourth visit to Joseph's and, as usual, it was great. The dress is casual and the wait staff is informal and friendly, but very professional; they're all about service and a first-rate experience. The dishes are appetizing to the eye as well as the pallet. The informality and the choice of quiet music (soundtrack from "Annie Get Your Gun" and Dean Martin on the night we were there) gives the place the feel of a friendly, family-run restaurant that gives ordinary people extraordinary experiences. It always reminds me of the movie "Big Night" and, for my wife and me, any night at Joseph's is a big night.

    We always go to Joseph's when we are in Colorado Springs. In fact, we just returned from CS and not only did we have dinner at Joseph’s, but on our way to the airport returning home we stopped for lunch. The service is fabulous (very friendly) and the food is even better. The spinach salad is maybe the best I have ever had, and the pepper steak is outstanding. My wife loves the trout. This is a “don’t miss” restaurant when you are in Colorado Springs.

    Joseph's has an excellent menu and we have thoroughly enjoyed everything we have tried both times we have been to dinner. The bananas foster is excellent and we would return for that alone, but are happy to report that the rest of the menu is just as good. The service could use some work - tables bussed sloppily with fingers inside the glasses; visible cooks in the back holding salad mix in their t-shirt...yuck!!! That aside, the food is too good to ignore. If only they could work out the kinks in the service.
