Joseph's Steakhouse of Iowa City
Joseph's SteakhouseVery enjoyable experience. Excellent food and service.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeThis is a great resturant. The food is excellent and the setup of the resturant makes it very romantic6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMjoseph's reviewGiven the restaurant's desire to be a high end steakhouse; the seating needs to be much more comfortable & plush. After about 30 minutes I was uncomfortable.
I am not an expert on service, other than I know when I get exceptional service. The service we had was fine; however, it was not any better than a high level chain restaurant (Moreton's etc.), and it was not exceptional. Given all things, the service at a competing steakhouse in Riverside is consistently better than what I experienced at Joseph's.
The food WAS exceptional. The steaks were cooked to perfection (all orders were medium or medium rare & cooked perfectly). We all had the filet, and the quality of the beef was prime. Thank you for the excellent food.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistantly specialThe food was perfect, the service excellent-as always. We go to Joseph's for birthdays, anniversaries and whenever we want to show off the best of Iowa City to out of town guests.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner; odd dessertWe had the lobster springs rolls, excellent, seafood bisque, excellent, fillets and sides, all excellent. The creams brûlée was served in a soup bowl. Off putting presentation and it affected the custard too as it was too thin in depth which resulted in too much caramelized sugar per bite and greatly diminished the texture and richness of the custard.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingIncredible food, excellent service and relaxing atmosphere.
Overall outstanding experience.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful ExperienceMy husband and I were very impressed with the service we received from our waiter. The food was excellent and the portions were just right. It was a great experience for both of us.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWho Would Have Thought?Joseph's is located in the heart of Iowa City at the University of Iowa. A fine dining restaurant in a college town? Don't even think about it -- until now! Who would have thought that a wonderful restaurant having terrific food, great service and a charming atmosphere would be hidden in plain sight. I will never visit Iowa City again without having a dinner at Joseph's!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst visitVery nice restaurant to celebrate an anniversary with family. Each table is surrounded by a curtain, making it very private. We tried 4 differant appetizers. The onion rings were excellent, as was the fried Boursin. Two of us ordered the lobster, and felt it was tough, and dry, especially around the edges. Was also fishey tasting. The other six diners were happy with their choices, prime rib, sea bass, and sirloin steak. This is a very pricy restaurant.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOur ExperienceOur experience at Joseph's was great.

Service was great, atmosphere just what we were hoping for--quiet, comfortable, with great food. We'll return for other very special occasions. However, it's probably a little too expensive for us to frequent any more often than such special occasions.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding dinner. FoodOutstanding dinner.
