Joe G"s is a family owned and operated Italian restaurant is nestled in the heart of New York.

Established more than 20 years ago, this stylish, renovated restaurant has an ambiance with dark Mahogany wood paneling, mirrors, and scenic photos of Italy to create a warm and cozy dining experience. Despite such seclusion, Joe G's is clearly sought after: shoppers, families, couples and business types are typically found here. Our specials are truly delicious, the combination of ingredients are distinctively paired creating a succulent dish you will enjoy. You can't go wrong with our standards entrées, which are prepared amazingly fresh to order and our pizzas are an obvious specialty. The wine list is extensive and for the most part Italian, with a great choice from well-priced house wines to the top of the range supertoscans, service is sharp and attentive and are knowledgeable with our wine menu.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Second time dining at this restaurant and once again, it was fantastic! We had an early dinner at 4:30, and it was very quiet, which was nice. Servers very friendly and attentive. We will be back again as none of us have had a bad meal here.

Friendly & courteous service since my husband and I walked in the front door. Imaginative cuisine and comfort food exist side by side. We have been going here since my husband worked in the neighborhood and it is still our go to place whenever we have a show at Carnegie Hall or in the neighboring theaters.

I'd been to Joe G's a couple of times, but not recently. The prices are very reasonable and my entree (salmon da'vinci) was very good. Cozy, small, low key place for a comfortable dinner. The staff was fine, except that I felt a bit rushed, even though we were there fairly early on a Sunday evening. Overall, very pleased.

We always eat at Joe G when in NY. The hostess knows us by name and always asks about our family. They are very accommodating and go out of their way to make our dining experience enjoyable. The food is always delicious. Homemade dishes. I always order veal parm and my husband orders eggplant parm. Joe G is probably my favorite restaurant of all time, NY or any other city.

Joe G serves food that rivals the most expensive restaurants in the city at reasonable prices. My sole almondine was exceptional, as were my friend's stuffed pork chop and primavera, and my husband's veal. The tourists who head for Patsy's down the block should detour to Joe's.

Great value for midtown NYC!

Entrees mostly in the low to mid $20s.
Exceptional muscles in a marinara sauce.
We both ordered off a $29.95 prix fixe menu.
My friend had a chicken dish with mushrooms and a brown sauce, which I wish I had ordered. She loved it.
My snapper filet was good, but not sensational and did have a few bones in it.
The tiramisu dessert was ordinary.
The one big flaw was that we both ordered specific beverages which were never delivered. We were not charged. Apparently, the waitress didn't write it down, or forgot.

Because of our schedule, our reservations were for 3:00pm Saturday. We were the only ones in the restaurant.

Overall, we were pleased and likely will return.

We were visiting NYC and looking for a casual Italian restaurant to dine in after seeing the early evening show at Radio City Music Hall. Joe G’s was within reasonable walking distance and had great recommendations out here at OpenTable and other places on the Internet. We felt we couldn’t go wrong by giving it a try. We made a great decision, that’s for sure. The food was very good and the service was EXCELLENT. We’ll definitely return to Joe G’s when we make our next trip to NYC.

We've been going here for years. One of our favorite small local restaurants where they know your name and even remember what you like! If you like a relaxed atmosphere, with friendly service. Cozy and delicious, with no affectations.

very good food, very good service, accommodated a group of 12 people including kids, only down side there was no high chair available

When in NYC, we often dine here. Prices for the quality of food are more than reasonable given it is NYC.

While the food was very good, the service was very poor. This place does not provide a high chair or booster for children, and there is no advanced notice of this. When we arrived the PM before the NYC marathon with our group of 4 + a 2 yo, our waiter (tony) said this was going to be a "huge a problem", and also refused to take the order for the child first. All through the meal he was rude and condescending. I have a pretty long fuse for that sort of thing but this was too much and the only reason we didn't leave at the start was that there would be no way to find another place to eat on a Saturday pm the day before the marathon.
The only saving grace was the food overall was very good. So overall you may have a better experience if you don't get Tony as your waiter and you don't need a high chair.
