Diner Reviews
  • "We have dined at this restaurant many times and were not disappointed until this last time. I ordered the eggplant rollatini with spaghetti. It came with a bowl full of spaghetti with LOTS of thick sauce and eggplant just put on top. This dish looks better at my local pizzeria. They certainly could make the presentation a lot better."

  • "The food here is amazing. It was decorated nicely but some of the tables gave me a diner feel. I was looking for something a little more dressy, but I quickly overlooked that when the waiter came around. He was very knowledgeable about the collection of wines as well as the menu. The bread and appetizer came out promptly. We ordered mussels which were delicious. Dinner was also extremely satisfying, I recommend the surf and turf. Halfway through the meal a large party was seated near my table. They were loud but my girlfriend and I didn't mind the noise. Still, the wait staff was very apologetic which was nice. We ate here because the gourmet restaurant was closed this night, but we're very happy with the meal and the service."

  • "I had salmon which was delicious. It was very delicate, not dry, and had a slight crust on bottom. I heard te folks st the next table also complimenting the chef. Breakfast the next day was excellent too. One note: the bread served prior to dinner was very dry and too crunchy, like eating croutons. I enjoyed the wine, my choice was the award winning New Jersey red."

  • "On a Saturday, arrived at 1:50 for 2:00 seating. Sat immediately with only 3 other tables taken with parties of 1 or 2. Prompt drink orders and delivery by youthful server, one of many standing around. Ordered their special lunch sandwich of one small sausage, 3 small slivers of red pepper and a tablespoon or so of onions on a small hoagie too big for its contents. I usually take half of a sandwich home and this barely did the job of lunch. Seasoned fries were room temp and limp. Tasty but not worth the wait of one hour ten minutes. I believe the restaurant plays second fiddle to the wedding prep happening simultaneously. The servers were not to blame as looking around, nothing was coming out of the kitchen. "

  • "We chose to be seated outside so as to enjoy the view of the vineyard. The drink specials were good but the food could have been better. The pastas were good but the flatbreads and burger just about ok."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "The menu has changed considerably and not for the better. You have your choice of reasonable, though limited, pasta dishes at around $16 then it jumps to the $34+ range. Our husbands each had the pork chop, hoping it would be similar to the old double pork chop that was so good in the past, but it was this big deep-fried thing. Not good at all! Will probably not come back."

  • "We visited in the late afternoon on Mother's Day. The restaurant was not crowded (perhaps that was a sign?). There seemed to be a lot of servers/bus persons but despite that, I found the service to be slow and not very attentive. I had the veal and it was chewy (the waiter recommended the dish, saying it would be very tender!). My mother had the flounder, which was overcooked. The others in our party of five seemed to enjoy their meals but no one raved about them. I hate to judge based on one visit as everyone has a bad day once in a while. The atmosphere is nice, and the restaurant was recommended highly by a personal friend so it is quite possible that my experience is not typical."

  • "Overall the experience was good..service was great food very good...my only complaint is we spent 220 for a party of 3..for that price I would expect a cleaner and better kept up place...our chair and floor were filled with crumbs upon seating..carpets were in overall bad shape and tables need to be refinished..I would definitely go back."

  • "Our group combined a tour and tasting @ the winery, followed by dinner. We've eaten there several times over the past few years and it could be a little inconsistent. This time we all agreed that it was outstanding; from interesting appetizers to well prepared main courses. We had a great evening"

  • "Very romantic restaurant in likewise romantic hotel. Great even just for over night getaway. Will tell many people about the great experience we had. "

  • "Our pickled tuna appetizer was both unique and very good. We both opted for orechette dishes. The one with brocolli rape and veal sausage was very good, but a few more pieces of sausage would have levated this to outstanding. The plum tomato and crab and shrimp was also a knock out. The portions were ample, ie enough for another meal. While the desserts looked good, we were too full to sample. Have to say the wines are very tasty, but curious as to why the price per bottle was a dollar or two more than in the gift shop, since the wines are only sold on premise. All in all, would recommend."

  • "It was my boyfriend's 64th birthday. I did the theme When I'm 64 by the Beatles. In the song there are lyrics that go Will you still be sending me a valentine (which I made him a home made card. Inside the card I wrote that I would be taking him for a tour to the Renault winery and lunch at Joseph's.) Birthday Greetings, bottle of wine (after the tour of Renault winery I bought him a bottle of wine in the gift shop) Will you still feed me (I took him to lunch at Joseph's). So that is why I chose Joseph's. The food was excellent. we had a sausage, broccoli rabe and mozzarella cheese flat bread for appetizer. It was delicious. For lunch we had Mahi mahi and it was fresh and also delicious. Joseph's is beautiful and I will go back."

  • "Steak dinner was good but fish dinner was bland (lacked seasoning). Disappointed with options for the Italian dishes. Dinner music was nice addition. Décor of restaurant could be updated. Had a reservation but hostess thought we were already seated at time of check-in. Were given lunch menus when we should have received dinner menus when seated. Seems like more attention is given to large groups as compared to individual dinners."

  • "After our wine tour and tasting, we dined at Joseph's for dinner. It capped off a great evening and date. Excellent service, great food."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "My girlfriend and I went to Renault to tour the winery and to have dinner at Joseph's. It was populated mostly by older men coming in for a drink after finishing their golfing for the day so the bar was busy. The restaurant itself was quiet. The food was great, I would expect to pay more for it if it were in downtown Philly or AC. Service was friendly."
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "The food was very good. We were there on Easter and the quality of the food was outstanding compared to other venues we have dined at on a holiday. The regular menu was available which was great. Our server Dave was knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. I highly recommend requesting him. A wonderful experience!"
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "The food here was truly terrible. The chicken parm was burnt on the edges, had a nasty bitter after taste that I couldn't wash away with 3 beers. My wife's steak was horribly dry. If the food is always this bad why is this place still open? Don't waste your money and make your belly suffer, go someplace else. "

  • "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."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."
