    One of the original Luger knock offs, but one of the best of them Appetizers a bit too pricey even by NYC steakhouse standards ($23 crab cakes, $25 shrimp cocktail), so may want to skip and go straight for the steaks A hidden gem down by the seaport, with food competitive to the best steakhouses, but without any glitz or ambiance

    This is a well kept secret in the South Street Seaport. The dining room is quiet and the tables are not close. The steaks are thick and done to your perfection. Not a large wine list, but our server was well versed on the offered selections. Service is quiet and unobtrusive. I had the filet mignon and lobster tail. The filet was 12 ounces and came as I requested, charred on the outside and rare inside. The steamed lobster was a good size as well. The sides were large enough to feed 3 people and our waiter advised this so we did not over order. Recommended.

    I had my Birthday dinner at MarkJoseph Steakhouse with a large party, which the staff was beyond accommodating to. Luckily my Birthday coincided with the last day of restaurant week and we were able to partake in the special menu. The freshly baked rolls, sizzling bacon and steak was amazing. I was told the Ceasar salad, clams and salmon were as well. The mandatory sides of creamed spinach (which was a bit sweet and waterlogged) and mashed weren't great, and the brownie in the sundae was rock hard for us all, but we had an incredible waitress and waitstaff (they sang Happy Birthday - so sweet), great dinner and an wonderful time and experience!!! Thank you all for making my Birthday wonderful!!! Can't wait to return for some more steak!!!

    We booked a table for two for the final day of Restaurant Week 2014. The menu offerings were varied for restaurant week, which is one of the primary reasons for selecting this restaurant. We arrived earlier than anticipated, but were seated anyway. Lovely atmosphere, and tables were filled with diners well past 2:00 p.m. Our entree choice was the 14 oz Sirloin (bone in). Caesar Salad was delicious with flavorful parmesan cheese shavings. The steak arrived on a sizzling platter, sliced before arriving at the table, and was transferred to our plates. The remaining sauce was spooned over the steak. It was absolutely the best steak I've ever had. Dessert was also delicious. Definitely a great place!

    I came here with my coworkers during restaurant week. The service was great. The waiter was attentive without being distributive. The menu selection was great, there was definitely something for everyone. I ordered the filet mignon for the extra charge. My food was fantastic, and my steak was cook perfectly. It was a great lunch and I would most definitely go back!

    This is a hidden gem with a super friendly staff. Ingrid was our waitress, she was on key with everything! We ordered baked clams, caesar salad & canadian bacon for starters. The canadian bacon was good, but a little to salty. It was good to try, but I'd prefer the baked clams before the bacon. The filet mignon was amazing! The steak was cooked exactly as requested, it was juicy & melted in your mouth. The steaksauce, side of mashed potatoes & cream spinach complimented the steak perfectly. We then ordered the brownie sundae & choc. chip ice cream. This entire meal hit the spot! The only con is the decor could be updated. For a restaurant with great service and food, I think an upgraded decor would complete the whole top notch package.

    I have been going to Marc Joseph for years. THe wait staff are professional and knowledgeable. One waiter I can speak about is Mike. When we go back its like visiting family. The steak is just as good or better than other steak house that you may go to and have to wait and hour before you sit (and thats with a reservation). Highly recommend to all that want great ambieance, great steak and great service starting from the minute you walk in.

    I tried baked clam and filet mignon, both tasted pretty good. Baked clam was a heavy dish with a lot of oil and crumbs. Filet mignon was cooked evenly. A lot of people around our table ordered sirloin. The way they serve sirloins is similar to peter luger - serving "glossy" cut up steak to your plate from a big plate where they cut the steak and a lot of "juice" (melted beef fat, i guess). Even though I finished my steak, I was tempted by the look and smell of those sirloins... Service was fair, our waitress kept mixing up our order - there were only 2 of us.

    I never held a high regard towards steakhouses in general, and I was a little skeptical of the food and service MarkJoseph would offer. However, my two friends and I were immensely pleased with the service we received right when we entered the doors of the restaurant from the hostess. The food did not disappoint, we picked from the Restaurant Week menu, from the appetizer (Caesar salad) to the dessert (Berries with Cream). If I have time to visit the neighborhood again, I will definitely be stopping by and bringing more friends and family to this delightful restaurant! Thank you so much.

    This review is based on a restaurant week experience, so take it for what it's worth. The steaks were mediocre and the service was poor. Even the sides were just ok. Better than average Caesar salad. Maybe they just slum it for RW but I won't be going back to find out.

    I find the portions, e.g., cream spinach and mashed potato and brownie sundae, to be extremely small. Don't be so cheap with the side dishes, especially when the customers are paying dinner prices. I live ten minutes away and might not come again because of the small portions.

    I went with a group for restaurant week and it's definitely a good intro to the restaurant. Overall, we had good food and wines, can't complain too much. I was unlucky in that my steak was cooked wrong and became medium well though I ordered medium rare. I didn't make a fuss because everyone else came out perfect, so I was just drawn the short straw. Definitely worth going back.

    Great food. Probably the best steak and value you can find downtown during Restaurant Week. Five of us walked two blocks from our Water Street office. All had salad, steak and mini brownie sundae - with a $5 extra side of bacon. Service was excellent and so was the food. The only issue - over 30 minutes between salad and steak. We will, however, be back again.

The restaurant was very understanding and was able to seat us without a long wait and even bought us drinks for our troubles. The steaks were excellent and the sides were perfectly done. Will definitely dine there again.

The hospitality and friendliness of the staff were as good as I have ever experienced on a first visit,and this included the owner introducing himself personally and buying a round of drinks.The rest of the staff were also true professionals and contributed to what was a very memorable 4th July dining experience.I can't recommend Markjoseph highly enough and I have eaten in establishments worldwide at every level. Many thanks to Greg and his team for an unforgettable evening,you are a credit to the New York dining business.

    My wife and I had dinner at MarkJoseph on July 4th just before the fireworks display. The restaurant, as you might will imagine was mobbed. Thanks to OpenTable, we were able to cut the line and we were immediately taken to our table. But there was chaos in the restaurant because of the the crowds of people. Our dinner was OK at best. My steak was medium-well, even though I ordered it medium-rare. The worst was the creamed spinach that was totally loaded with so much salt that it was not edible. We will not be returning to MarkJoseph, but perhaps the experience would be better on a calmer evening.

    We went there on a Sunday night, a time when most of wall street and the financial district is like the apocalypse. I think we were one of two parties in the restaurant. That said, the service was excellent and the food was great. We had the filet that was cooked perfectly and the pasta fra diavlo, which was excellent. We also had the cold seafood appetizer -delicious. Nice wine list and great bar with TV's (we watched the final 15 mins of USA World Cup). Overall a great experience.

    Excellent service and sized portions. Friendly, clean and excellent food. Usually go here with co-workers but decided to have nice dinner with my wife. The area is a heavy tourist/transplant area, but as a life-long NYKr this is on the top of my list for hidden gems that the locals can enjoy as well. The bacon is signature, side mushrooms are awesome! I rate the side mushrooms the finest of ALL steakhouses in NYC and I have been to them all!

I ordered the 12oz Filet Mignon in a mushroom glaze with shrimp and it was also, perfection. The staff is friendly and attentive without being pushy. I can't say anything bad about this restaurant and I highly recommend it! Just make sure you are ready to indulge yourself because it is quite expensive.
