    One of my friends recommended this restaurant to me. So I booked a dinner reservation for my birthday. I had the scallops as an entree. My husband had the t-bone i think. We also had the onion rings and steak fries. My husband really liked the bread. Then we had the key lime pie for dessert. I would definitely go back. It was kind of hard to pick what to eat since so many dishes on the menu sounded really good. We had to wrap up the leftovers with us. It's so filling!

    In researching steakhouses in NYC, I came across MarkJoseph Steakhouse. As I read the reviews, they were all very consistent (exceptional food, great service, hidden gem in NYC)! We decided to have dinner there on 9/28/14 and it was a great decision! Started our dinner with an order of Clams Casino and a Caesar Salad. Both were well prepared with flavors that increased my confidence that it was only going to get better! We were not disappointed as the steak for 2 was cooked perfectly and the hash browns and sautéed mushrooms complimented the main course to make it a meal that was unbelievable. Key Lime Pie for dessert capped off a perfect meal! The service was exceptional!! This was our first trip but it will not be our last!!

    Excellent steak, perfectly cooked, juicy and flavorful. Excellent lobster bisque as well. Fantastic wine! The only down grade was the onion rings. They weren’t real onion rings, but very thin onions. The breading was sort of bland, and the onions so thin you couldn’t taste them.

    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!

    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.

    The food was great. We went here for 2014 summer restaurant week dinner. Compared to last year, the portion of side dishes (cream spinach and mashed potato) seem to shrink. Overall, the sirloin steak was cooked perfectly. The service is fair enough.

    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.

It always feels special, the food is abundant and tasty. There is an excellent wine list and the service is impeccable. A first class experience!

    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.
