    My apartment is only a ten minute walk from this place. I took my girlfriend here for our anniversary. Everything was great - from the food to the service, I have only good things to say about this restaurant. It is pretty pricey so it won't be a weekly tradition for us, but I will definitely be back for the special occasions.

    We had a reservation on July 4th with plans to view the fireworks after dinner. We were able to call and add to our party one day prior to the reservation and then were 35 minutes late. 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.

    if you are in this area of NYC and want steak this is a terrific choice. service was great on a very busy 4th of July. Worth the steep prices. know what you are ordering as this is like many steakhouses where the sides are for two or more people.

    A truly outstanding experience,the T Bone was perfectly cooked and presented and the side dishes of Mashed Potato,Mushrooms were also excellent. 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!

    Everything was perfect! My boyfriend ordered a 3lb lobster that was closer to 5lbs and out of this world. 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.

    Wanted to have something aspiring as competition to Peter Luger and read about Mark Joseph. The Canadian bacon as appetizer was a hit! For mains we had the Steak for 2 which we asked to have medium rare but must say that it was more rare then expected. However great meat! Not very impressed with the sauces either The sides were not as well prepared - the baked potato was a little hard. Good wine selection and the service was very friendly

    Went with a dear friend. The steaks were well aged and tasty. We didn't much like the music ambiance--my friend asked, "why don't they turn off the radio?" I mentioned this to the hostess (she's been there since the founding some 15 years ago, so maybe a part owner) who was very nice and friendly, and she apologized, saying the tunes were off her smart phone, due to the very high winds and rain that made the internet connection very spotty. All in all, we had a lovely time. I'd say the restaurant was about half full of patrons. I'll go again sometime.

    I've been to dozens of steakhouses in NY and Mark Joseph is upper echelon. The service was very solid especially the manager. She came over several times to ask how things were and even sent over a tasting of their signature bacon (definitely try it). The steak was exceptional and the sides and appetizers were outstanding and sufficient. Overall, a good dining experience justifying me going again soon.

    Our dinner was to celebrate our son's birthday. I notified Open Table when I made the reservation. Not only did they provide a delicious slice of birthday cake, but three waiters sang "Happy Birthday" for our table. The filet mignon melted in my mouth. Everything was perfect. I'll be back to try out the bar the next time. ----Linda from Boston

    I took my college student son to MarkJoseph Steakhouse for dinner. The food and service were exceptional. The waiter was very helpful in recommending a Pinot Noir wine that was reasonably priced and went well with the meals we ordered. The bacon appetizer should not be missed. We had the steak for two, which was perfectly done and delicious. The side orders of mashed potatoes and sauted asparagus were excellent. I would recommend the MarkJoseph Steakhouse to anyone looking for a fine steak place in vicinity of the South Street Seaport.

    The restaurant is perfectly situated on a quiet street in the Seaport. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The steaks and twin lobster tails were among the best I've tasted and the sides were all fantastic...asparagus, broccoli, sauteed onions. For appetizers we had the Tuna Tartare and Oysters...both were amazing! As far as desserts go don't miss out on the tartufo! Highly recommend!!

    I've been to MJ a few times & unfortunately this was my worst experience. I wanted my frens from Singapore to try this place as this is one of my fav steak house. The steaks that we ordered were dry and over cooked. I asked for med rare expecting the meat to have some juice but it didn't. My frens ordered their steak med well but it was well done. They needed to use the steak sauce cos it was way too dry. I never use steak sauce as good steak doesn't need any. The service was great in the beginning but once the bill was paid the service stopped. We were chatting & wanted to finish the bottle of wine that we ordered so we sat for about another half hour. No one came to refill our water. I will go back cos they r not usually this bad.

    Went there for the anniversary dinner. And we waited for this receptionist for almost 5 minutes. Because she was busy chatting with other customers. Finally we were seated and the waiter was not nice to take our orders he had not smile until we gave him the check...after then appetizers he kind of throw the plate on the table for our main course. I really hated the attitude and it was our anniversary . When we pay with cash. And gave him about 25~30% tips. He turns into a completely nicer person. With smile on his face. I was so disappointed with the service.
