    We always knew about the winery but had no idea the campus included 2 restaurants, an inn, a gift shop and golf course. Great atmosphere, beautiful views and great good. I highly recommend.

    This was our second time at Joseph"s, and the entertainment was screwed up (Pete Wagula was supposed to perform) The ambience, and food was excellent. I Loved the veal in wild mushroom sauce and the desserts are to die for, My wife had the eggplant and was very happy with it. The only slight, I'm sorry that with all the artisan cheeses floating around that joint that the french onion soup was bare. I obviously didn't read the menu correctly, for had I known I would never have ordered it. Also it was luke warm and that did not help. Nuff said about soup, Calamai on the other hand was exceptional. Joseph's is an amazing culinary hot spot and if you want a respite from the work week this can set your mood for the start of a romantic weekend.

    This was our 1st time at Joseph's. The filet mignon & stuffed lobster tail were excellent but the au gratin potatoes were under cooked. Our waiter, Caesar, was very nice & attentive. The decor was beautiful but the dining area too wide open to be considered romantic. Overall it was great dining experience. I would highly recommend this restaurant, especially for special occasions.

    We were warmly greeted when we entered, I was handed a rose since it was Valentines Day. We were immediately shown to our table. It was so warm and cozy and romantic.. We were waited on promptly, but never felt rushed. The wait staff very friendly and knowledgeable. We had twin lobster tails that were cooked to perfection, presentation beautiful . Very nice menu. something for everyone. My husband and I will be going back. Very pretty location.

    My first time, here; I really enjoyed my black bean soup and pappardelle. I was also impressed with the quality of their own wines, both a white and ther burgundy. They are well-suited to the cusine which is certainly +4 stars.

    Our family enjoyed this experience more than any other in Southern New Jersey. The food is the best. My meal is designed by an artist. Joseph's listens. I'm impressed. I sort of wanted the grand kids to experience the best of life. They laughed and enjoyed themselves. Grandma and I are providing an experience that they'll remember forever.

    So happy to have a quality restaurant located near Egg Harbor City where locals can go for a nice luncheon experience. My daughter was in from California and we traveled from Pennsylvania to take my parents who live in EHC out to lunch. We wanted a restaurant nearby which offered a relaxing atmosphere, good food, and an upscale ambience. We found it at Joseph's.

    The food was wonderful, we were all very pleased. I think if you just went for dinner, not a holiday it could be very romantic and not so loud. We had a nice time, staff was nice, salads were awesome and the desserts, yum! We will go back for my birthday, I am sure we will have more ambiance !

    We went to Joseph's as a last minut reservation on New Year's Eve. The food was good, however the service seemed a little rushed. We hadn't even finished our appetizer when our entree's came out, and the bill was presented to us before our desert. We thought the rush may have had something to do with being New Year's Eve, however there were quite a few empty tables.

    After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, I decided to purchase a deal for Joseph's. Boy am I glad I did! My husband, I and the other couple felt this restaurant exceeded our expectation. The service was outstanding and the food excellent. The prices were quite reasonable, especially for the menu selections. We are already planning our return trip and spreading the word to everyone we know.

    We had been going there for years. Then stopped. The food was terrible. The service was not great, It took several years, but we decided to give Joseph's another chance. And am I glad we did. Everything was great. I even sent an e-mail to the manager explaining our disappointment. They said "Oh Well". It's not like this now. It was great. Perhaps a new chef and a new manager turned this place around. We will be back. I highly recommend this restaurant.

  • OK for a diner...not for a winery
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 12/14/2013
    The waitress was absent for most of the visit. The menu was limited. And when the food did arrive it was clear it had been sitting out because it was on the cold side. We ordered champagne with lunch and the waitress overfilled the glass and bubbles went all over. I'd expect someone at a winery to know how to pour. I expected something more upscale. This felt more like a diner than a winery. That said we LOVE Renault and an to go back frequently,..we just won't be eating there.

Because we came in the winter/off season, we got private winery tour with wine tasting. The tour guide is very knowledgeable and friendly. We may come again someday.

    I'm always amazed that when there is no one in the restaurant that you get seated in the worst section The restaurant is located in a beautiful setting and has many beautiful views but we were placed at the back of the restaurant near a very noisy kitchen when we were about the only people in there. We were 7 but it would have been quite easy to push two tables together. Where we were located the waiter had to pass meal over all the guests. The food was very good and the promptness of service very good The food was taste and lunch till late is a great idea.

    Stayed at hotel and dined here for dinner. Very quiet evening, mid week and not busy. We were one of maybe 5 - 8 groups in t he place. Took a while for food to come but guess making fresh. Dined after wine tasting so passed on more wine but sure there were many to choose from. Chicken parm was a large portion and fulling. Did not order dessert.

While our server was attentive, we were disappointed with our meal. Food was overlooked and lacked seasoning. I would not recommend, instead go across to the gourmet room upstairs!

    Enjoyed a great birthday lunch with six family members. The service was great and everyone enjoyed their lunch. The crab and shrimp Louie was incredible, would strongly recommend it! It was a weekday off season lunch so it was very quiet and we enjoyed the ambiance. Can't wait to go back for lunch again!
