Diner Reviews
  • "My wife and I dine at Josephs often. We have not had a bad meal since we started going 5 years ago."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We stayed overnight at the hotel and dined for Dinner and Breakfast. My dinner was a disaster. I ordered filet mignon and it was very chewy instead of melting in your mouth as good filet would do. I sent it back and my replacement was just as bad. In fairness, my wife enjoyed her fish dinner. So, I sat there all through dinner and watched my wife eat her meal. I filled up with bread. For breakfast, I ordered eggs and sausage and both were overcooked. In both cases the service was very good but they only served the food and didn't cook it. Actually, the eggs and sausage should never have been served to me, but I guess the server was afraid to not serve them. I didn't have time to send them back so I ate them. Normally I would not have."

  • "The service was very slow. There were not many people in the restaurant. The server was not to helpful needs to be more up beat and concerned with the people he is serving. Food okay, We may try dinner there next time hope for a better time. Thw winery was great. Will return for that."

  • "We went to Joseph's on Sunday at 7pm. The restaurant is clean and nicely decorated. My two main issues were with the food options and the staff. Let's start with the food options. For being a higher priced restaurant, the menu is limited. I ordered the Chicken Agrodolce and my companion ordered the Eggplant Tower. Both meals were fairly plain. Not very flavorful. The food did not wow either of us. The service was just as bad. First off, and not to be a snob, but the waitress did not open up the champagne for us. There are not too many restaurants that I go to where you are required to do this on your own. And then, she never really checked on us again. I was highly disappointed."

  • "As usual the food and service were outstanding. all they need to do now is improve on the coffee, that is the only draw back"

  • "We had lunch one Saturday in March. Our server was attentive. The food was wonderful - large serving sizes for lunch! Don't miss out on the wings. They are very meaty sweet and with a spicy kick."

  • "My husband and I enjoyed the food and the ambience at Joseph's Restaurant. Everything from the appetizers to the dessert was exceptional. The live music by the guitar player was very calming and not loud. The staff was so nice and gracious. Our plan was to take the tour before dinner, but we missed the time. We were able to be seated before our reservation so we took the Winery tour after dinner."

  • "We we're so delight with the crew who work in these place. The place and location are worth coming for. The hospitality of the host was totally great...She was so accommodating for everything we ask for...Totally going back to these place and recommendation."

  • "Arrived for a 7:45 reservation at 7:40. The host was in the host station/dj booth & never made eye contact. He passed us off to Emily who took us to our table which wasn't ready. We said we would grab a drink at the bar and if she could get us when the table was ready. The bar was empty & as we approached the bartender turned away. I asked for a malbec and was told they didn't have any. The next 3 wines off the menu I asked for-they were out. Finally found one and it was warm. At 5 after 8 we went back to the host station, since people were coming in & being seated, & was asked it we had a reservation. We were obviously forgotten. Sat for more than 10 mins before our server appeared. Food ok but felt like we weren't welcomed."

  • "The soup tasted like brown gravy. The soup portion has shrunk to a fraction of what has been served in the past. It was not hot. My Eggplant Nepaliano was the most unimaginable concoction. The plain breaded eggplant, with uneatable burnt edges, sitting on a bed of tasteless pasta with sauce and topped with melted cheese and a sprig of broccoli rab was boring. It was a sorrowful excuse for eggplant parmigiana. My wife's pork chop was breaded and dried out, some of her potatoes were burnt. After many years of driving an hour to enjoy this restaurant, I see no need to go again. If I can't count on a carefully and tastefully prepared meal then there is no desire to return."

  • "Went for Restaurant Week with friends and we all loved it! Food was excellent, loved our server (Great job Kathleen!), loved the saxophonist, excellent cocktails at the bar. Outstanding in every way!"

  • "-keI found the food to be good. Not mind-blowing, but worth a visit. Excellent cioppino, which was "loaded" with seafood, which is a change as most cioppinos are flavorful but spare on the filling. I'm pleased to say they did not sacrifice quality with quantity. The flatbread with veal and sausage rabe was well composed. the bread was tender with nice texture and consistency. the veal a bit blah, but satisfactory. the mussels with garlic and parsley butter was a generous portion. the mussels were nicely done, not overcooked and chewy. the flavor of the sauce was consistent and low-keyed."

  • "We loved our night out at Renault winery. We did the wine tour and tasting before our reservations at Joseph's. We truly enjoyed our food and the service at Joseph's will definitely reccommend!"

  • "This is our second visit. Food, service and ambiance was very nice. The ricotta bruschetta was awesome and the calamari was some of the best I have had. For dinner, the lamb was very nicely cooked with good accompianment! We chose Fracello as the wine as we had just done a tasting. It was very good and pricing was excellent."

  • "We always knew about the winery but had no idea the campus included 2 restaurants, an inn, a gift shop and golf course. Great atmosphere, beautiful views and great good. I highly recommend."

  • "This was our second time at Joseph"s, and the entertainment was screwed up (Pete Wagula was supposed to perform) The ambience, and food was excellent. I Loved the veal in wild mushroom sauce and the desserts are to die for, My wife had the eggplant and was very happy with it. The only slight, I'm sorry that with all the artisan cheeses floating around that joint that the french onion soup was bare. I obviously didn't read the menu correctly, for had I known I would never have ordered it. Also it was luke warm and that did not help. Nuff said about soup, Calamai on the other hand was exceptional. Joseph's is an amazing culinary hot spot and if you want a respite from the work week this can set your mood for the start of a romantic weekend."

  • "We were warmly greeted when we entered, I was handed a rose since it was Valentines Day. We were immediately shown to our table. It was so warm and cozy and romantic.. We were waited on promptly, but never felt rushed. The wait staff very friendly and knowledgeable. We had twin lobster tails that were cooked to perfection, presentation beautiful . Very nice menu. something for everyone. My husband and I will be going back. Very pretty location."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This was our 1st time at Joseph's. The filet mignon & stuffed lobster tail were excellent but the au gratin potatoes were under cooked. Our waiter, Caesar, was very nice & attentive. The decor was beautiful but the dining area too wide open to be considered romantic. Overall it was great dining experience. I would highly recommend this restaurant, especially for special occasions."

I sort of wanted the grand kids to experience the best of life. They laughed and enjoyed themselves. Grandma and I are providing an experience that they'll remember forever."

  • "So happy to have a quality restaurant located near Egg Harbor City where locals can go for a nice luncheon experience. My daughter was in from California and we traveled from Pennsylvania to take my parents who live in EHC out to lunch. We wanted a restaurant nearby which offered a relaxing atmosphere, good food, and an upscale ambience. We found it at Joseph's."

  • "The food was wonderful, we were all very pleased. I think if you just went for dinner, not a holiday it could be very romantic and not so loud. We had a nice time, staff was nice, salads were awesome and the desserts, yum! We will go back for my birthday, I am sure we will have more ambiance !"

  • "We went to Joseph's as a last minut reservation on New Year's Eve. The food was good, however the service seemed a little rushed. We hadn't even finished our appetizer when our entree's came out, and the bill was presented to us before our desert. We thought the rush may have had something to do with being New Year's Eve, however there were quite a few empty tables."

  • "After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, I decided to purchase a deal for Joseph's. Boy am I glad I did! My husband, I and the other couple felt this restaurant exceeded our expectation. The service was outstanding and the food excellent. The prices were quite reasonable, especially for the menu selections. We are already planning our return trip and spreading the word to everyone we know."

  • "We had been going there for years. Then stopped. The food was terrible. The service was not great, It took several years, but we decided to give Joseph's another chance. And am I glad we did. Everything was great. I even sent an e-mail to the manager explaining our disappointment. They said "Oh Well". It's not like this now. It was great. Perhaps a new chef and a new manager turned this place around. We will be back. I highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "Took a wine tasting tour at Renault, then drove across the street to Joseph's. Wonderful restaurant! Great to find a beautiful place for lunch (or dinner) that is reasonably priced, but special enough for a celebration! Dishes presented with an interesting flair. Service and food were great!"
    Dined on 12/12/2013
  • "The waitress was absent for most of the visit. The menu was limited. And when the food did arrive it was clear it had been sitting out because it was on the cold side. We ordered champagne with lunch and the waitress overfilled the glass and bubbles went all over. I'd expect someone at a winery to know how to pour. I expected something more upscale. This felt more like a diner than a winery. That said we LOVE Renault and an to go back frequently,..we just won't be eating there."
