Server was extremely nice and attentive. Food was amazing! Get a lot of food for your dollar and we still forced dessert which was the best part

The food tasted great but came out cold. Was also overcrowded considering covid and waiters were not wearing masks.

Went for pre birthday celebration.
Seated quickly waiter come over and got us beverages pretty quickly. Took quite a while for food to come
Two parties that came after us got their food prior. Manager apologized for delay but no comps for hour wait. With short staffing I get it.

Great food and service, My only complaint would be that wait and kitchen staff are not wearing masks and should be.

If you like mussels, you can make it a meal at Bristro Joe's. It's truly addictive in a creamy garlic sauce. I will be back.

Made a reservation for a window table, got put at the “chefs table” which was communal and also extremely small and crowded. The staff was not personable at all and because it was a makeshift table if was not comfortable at all. The food was delicious though.

Food is always great at Bistro Joe's. Service has been adequate but not stellar. I was shocked on New Year's Eve 2021 that all of the staff DID NOT wear masks as Michigan has an extremely high number of Covid cases, hospitals are full and Omicron is highly highly transmissible even among those vaccinated. They seem to have a policy with their staff of if you want to wear a mask, go ahead and if you don't want to, don't wear a mask. Under current circumstances, this is not a good way to protect the community at large. I am going to check 'no" to recommending Bistro Joe's until this pandemic is totally under control or Joe's changes their masking policies.

I've had the good fortune of dining at Bistro Joe's for a number of years now.
It never disappoints.
The quality of the food is top-notch, and the staff is nothing short of amazing...consistently so.

Bistro Joe's is one of my "go to" places...in fact, it's probably my THE "go to" place for me.

I recommend it without hesitation.

Patio area was way too cold. Sitting on the bench side of the table I could not cross my legs. I’m very thin and there is not enough room between the table and one’s legs.

It was quiet upon our arrival yet both hosts were incredibly rude and made us feel super unwelcome. Thankfully, our server was wonderful and the food was amazing! The combination of the two definitely turned the experience around. However, when we left we had another uncomfortable interaction with the hosts. We will be back with hopes that the next experience will start out on a higher note. PS - order the crab stuffed mushrooms!

Good food. OK service but a bit scattered and uneven. Maybe not enough servers. Menu type needs to be bigger and more clear.
