    Open Table should change the "noise level" section choices from "energetic" to "loud"! This is a very nice place and, like many other restaurants, it would be even better if the music would be lower. And no, I'm not old and I like heavy metal but restaurants are not clubs, just lowering the music would make for a much better dining experience and I'm sure people would stay longer and would drink and eat more!

    Consistently one of the best meals in NYC. My wife and I moved to another part of the city three yrs ago and we still cab back to Joe & MissesDoe regularly b/c the food is so good. True neighborhood gem, but one that is finally getting the broader acclaim it deserves. Interestingly the drink menu is no longer stressed the same way it used to be but drinks like the Spicy Lady and Muddy Puddle are must-trys as well. Overall, this place will not disappoint you. Highly recommended.

    This was my second time to Joe & MIssesDoe. I first found out about the place because Joe won an episode of Chopped. He seemed like not only a great chef but also a really cool person. Turns out both are more than true. My first time there was with some friends who I had watched the episode with. We got there pretty late, so by the time we had finished our meal the place was almost cleared out. We asked if we could talk to Joe and get a picture with him, as we had loved him on the show. Both Joe and Jill got a kick out of that. They were more than happy to talk with us and take a picture. The food is also fantastic. Joe has a great way of putting a great and interesting spin on all his dishes. I highly, highly recommend the hot dipped chicken.

    Tiny, overcrowded and overbooked. Mediocre food and pretentious attitude. I scheduled a reservation at 1:30pm on a Saturday and arrived on time. I was not seated until after 2:00pm and was ignored for another 20 minutes. Also they let a couple who arrived 15 minutes after me skip ahead of line and was seated at the bar. They definitely do not treat all of their customers equally which is very unprofessional. I wouldn't waste my money here again.

    It's small. It has odd cocktails based on beer (and the one with bourbon and calvados (?) was also great). It has interesting food. The woman next to us gave us advice on what to order. The waiters (and owner, I think) are very friendly. I ordered the chicken dish. It is fruity and hot (spicy hot) and there are nuts and a sauce. I got so involved in my dish that I unintentionally stopped listening to my husband. It was an engrossing experience involving taste and mouth feel and fingers. The cocktail (honey and beer and something) also involved fingers. The banana bread pudding did not involve fingers but was also very enjoyable. The whole experience was great and we'll be back.

    I had a great experience here! The food and the drinks were amazing. The hot apple cider drink was by far one of the best winter drinks I've had. The french toast with bananas was also delicious (coming from someone who normally doesn't enjoy sweets). My friend also had the chorizo biscuits and gravy which she said was also great. Overall it was a very good experience and I will be coming back in the very near future.

    Cocktails and wine followed by Bearded Broccoli (great name, great taste) and Hot Dipped Chicken (really, really hot and wonderful), Thoughtful touches like used flatware from the appetizer replaced automatically by clean for the main course. Even in upscale restaurants we have had to ask for a change. Bravo to Joe and the Misses for the pleasure of dining with them.

    The wait staff could not accommodate any changes to the menu. Despite having different egg options on the menu - they would not make an omelette for a friend who was a vegetarian.

    It's a relatively small location. More bar than diner/restaurant. Great staff and atmosphere with great music. My wife and I split rib tip eggs Benedict and biscuits and gravy with andouille sausage. Yummy. We topped that off with bloody Mary's which were bery good. It's a little off the beaten track but worth the journey.

    We made reservations for 5 for a Sunday afternoon and good thing we did---this place was hopping! The staff were warm and friendly. The service was a little slow but when we were served our meals we understood why---everything is presented by their masterful chef and the presentation was noteworthy. Our food was wonderful. My only disappointment was with the 'fruit' on my french toast which turned out to be a sliced apple-not very exciting.

    Went here for brunch and it has a great down-to-earth relaxed vibe. The food is very good - the pickled okra was delicious. Except they had some extremely large pieces of okra that were inedible as they were too fibrous. The biscuits and butter are delicious and it's a great place for brunch otherwise.

    Although I live in CA, I visit NYC very often. NYC has so many great restaurants, but I keep returning to Joe & Misses Doe. The menu is always changing and the dishes are very unusual at first read on the menu. Jill (Misses Doe) does a great job of explaining what each dish is like. I was with a party of 4 and we all loved, loved, loved what we had. We started off with clever, unique cocktails that Jill creates. I loved mine (Jill's version of a whiskey sour) as did my friends. Don't skip dessert. When we went there was only banana bread with ice cream on the dessert menu. It's the specialty of the house and we get each time we're there. Yum! Joe does a great job with the food and Jill is a fabulous host. We feel like family.

    Each time we eat here it just gets better. This is down home cooking at its best in Manhattan. Jill's service out front is always friendly and attentive. Five stars for the biscuits and gravy and if I could give six to the brisket hash I would.

    Really enjoyed this funky little spot. Had noted the restaurant's mention in a Food article in the New York Times about biscuits. Although those famous biscuits aren't served at dinner (disappointing), the meal was great. Very fresh. Unique flavor combination. I had the the Fat Man With Glasses burrito! Marvelous! The banana bread sundae was the only slight disappointment. Not bad. Not awesome. We'll be back for Brunch

    This place isn't nice enough to charge what they charge for an a la carte menu. The food was decent but too little and too pricey for what it was. The staff seemed sweet and I hope the owners will see the writing on the wall and shift their menu before their spot is replaced by another clothing boutigue.

    My wife and I have been coming here for years (although we moved out of the Village several years ago now) and we still believe this restaurant is one of the city's most underrated gems. Brunch is fantastic (best french toast in the city, hands down) but the evolving dinner menu is also a must-try. really happy with our experiences each and every time we visit.

    This place is just a feel good restaurant, with feel good food and attitudes. I am so lucky and happy to live around the corner from the most honest food. It is a no-fail, consistent restaurant. It's a little haven in the madness, and sometimes generics, of the LES.

    A meal here is always a winner. Dinner or brunch, you can't go wrong. Order what catches your eye, and make sure to have one (or a few) of Jill's special cocktails. Joe & Jill put their hearts into this place, and it shows. Spend your dollars here rather than some corporate, assembly line place that just wants to turn your table.

    We were 5 for dinner. I had "The Honey beer" and recommend skipping it. Should have sent it back. Basically a glass filled with ice and the honey dripping down the glass. Had to lick my fingers. Then ordered a Gibson. Made the cut. They have only small batch brands so go with the flow. Snacks we tried that were great: wipped ricotta, fried matzos both great. Skip the pickles. We ate vegetarian so the choices are limited: the breaded broccoli, The Beet down, and the baked clams were wonderful. The vinegar slaw and the chedder white corn grits were over the top. Only two desserts and both were great end to the meal. Service staff were most helpful. Really had a good time at this unique establishment.

    This place is tiny, but the food is delicious! I recommend the beer cheese, sticky wings, french dip dumplings, and the grits. This is a great spot for delicious, reasonably priced food - which, from my experience, can be a little tough to find in NYC. We ate an outrageous amount of food, all for under $100. I can't remember the last time I've been able to say that...

    I appreciated I could book on Saturday night as a lot of other places you can't. The reviews I read were all glowing and particularly said that one of the owners who served them was really nice. I didn't get this vibe from her. She seemed annoyed by us and when one friend was alittle late she warned to order.I can appreciate that but honestly our friend wasn't that late and it set a bad tone. We had some starters which were nice. The when we ordered our mains we didn't realise that all the dishes were small and meant to be shared. I was going to get the clams but upon hearing there were only two, opted for the Mac and cheese. The majority of us had the Mac and cheese which was not really the food I was expecting on a night out for dinner.

    We went at 7 on a Friday and the wait staff was really attentive and helpful. The menu was a little heavy on hot sauces and sriracha but that's just not my taste. The drinks were fun and inventive. The room is very small but not crowded. Better for small parties. We really loved it.

    I love this place because it's so small, and the food is good, and the service is good. It's almost like American tapas; you just get a bunch of whatever you want and share it with the table. The *only* thing I didn't like is, the bar got really crowded and, since the place is so small, the people at the bar were basically standing on top of us and the servers couldn't even get through the crowd. However, it was Saturday night, so this maybe isn't a problem during the rest of the week.

    From the moment we entered this cozy, and warm space we were greeted by smiles, friendly conversation, and helpful explanations about the food, drinks, neighborhood, and so on. The four of us shared the spectacular chicken wings, toasted spicy hazelnuts, grits and collard greens, and the marrow butter. I would have preferred more marrow flavor, but it and all the rest of the items we ordered were excellent, including the beet salad, hangar steak, and so on. Loved the chocolate mousse cake. The service is top shelf. The restaurant immaculate, and the two women in our party of four both commented on the quality of the ladies room. As we left, we experienced the same sincere smiles and words of thanks from the waitress and bartender.
