We ordered 4 appetizers, Brussels sprouts, flatbread, tuna tartare and fish tacos. The taste of the food was poor and the service was very poor. Very disappointed. We will not come here again.
We visited Joe's on a Saturday night and it was a fabulous choice!
Good food, Good service.
good view, poor ambiance, chaotic service, meat burnt in the burger of the Kid's menu.
The food was absolutely amazing and the service was perfect! Will definitely go back on our next visit to Boston!
I appreciate the availability for late-night dining, I had 3 underage family members I need to accommodate, a party of 6 we were able to be seated before the reserved time, the weather was cold, so we were seated by the window which I assumed would be breezy, but the heaters were on blast!! a bit uncomfortable, but overall we enjoyed our food, the wait for service in between being served was a delay (even though the establishment wasn't busy in our section). I would just be mindful of checking in on the tables more frequently.
Easy to make reservation online.
Good menu with plenty of choices.
A bit crowded and messy for such an early dinner (6:45 PM)
Server was friendly but service was rushed: drink orders taken within minutes of sitting down; minutes after that we were asked if we were ready to order - we said we would start with an appetizer to share; within a minute of serving the appetizer we were asked what we wanted for our entrees; minutes later our salads were delivered followed by our entrees within another minute. Our table was loaded with multiple courses at the same time!
We felt rushed, needless to say.
We had a good table that was not overly crowded for our party. Two of our members had to wait a very long time for their meals as they had been given to a different table.
Decent burger. Sweet potato fries were really good. Was able to make reservations for 7 a few hours ahead but we were sat by the door so it was chilly. We had kids with us and they liked it. Service was good.
awesome table location and service. out of town guests from Colorado loved it and will definitely come again
After a disappointing night at a restaurant only one street away from Newberry, Joe's put that experience behind me.
Nothing extravagant, but just good execution on a diverse menu of American faire.
This is a great place to catch-up with friends. The Baja Fish tacos were great.
Our server was the worst part of our experience, although two of the entrees we received were overcooked as well. Server was hard to find even though it wasn’t actually that busy and we had to remind him about 4 different items that had not been delivered to our table during the meal. I mean, does it really take 30 minutes to get a lemonade to a thirsty 6 year old? My lady’s Fisherman’s platter was well over cooked and the mussels tray we got were half burnt. We aren’t ones to send food back so we sucked it up, especially since we had the littles who were already starving. Overall I would not visit again.
Always a perfect treat to eat at Joes
Love the bread and the steak is fabulous!
I tried the special, baked scrod. It was good, but a very small piece for the price they charged.
Reliably good food in casual surroundings, punctuated by children screaming. Service is generally above average.
Really enjoyed our meal, especially the clam chowder. We got exactly what we expected. It will become a regular when I’m in Boston.
Lights over our table were out and our table was in a corner that was very cold by the entrance. Forgot our appetizer.
I had scheduled a team brunch for my employees. Everyone enjoyed the food and had a great time. Our server was nice and pleasant but being that he was also tending to the bar, he tended to our table slowly. I ordered steak and eggs and my steak was raw. Not rare, raw. By the time, I was able to tell server, everyone else had already finished eating. A couple of people could have used refills. All in all this could have been a 5 star review. I give it a 4 as our server should have been more attentive but her had other things ongoing on. He was nice otherwise.
The fish (fish & chips) was like rubber and impossible to chew.
Nice place good food and service
Brunch was great !
It was an excellent experience
They handled a brunch party of 12 as if we were two, just wish our table was a bit bigger it was a table for 10.
Great service in an awesome location in the Back Bay! Great bar seating.
Their food is always delish
I may recommend Joe's for drinks as the ambiance was nice.
Server was outstanding. Was very accommodating. Everything was prepared as requested and the salad was fresh and included some excellent croutons. My only mistake was forgetting to request the gravy on the side. The guys at the bar nearby were entertaining with their conversation about sports. It was a great evening overall.
Joe’s is a great place to meet up with friends or family for any occasion. The restaurant is really clean, the staff is super friendly, and the food is delicious. The menu is not too expensive either and is well worth it. We went for my birthday and the staff did a great job of making us feel welcomed. The cocktails are great as well!
Waitress was horrendous , came by twice and we had to find her to pay and then she was rude
Waiter, Dan,at high tops was great. Treated us so respectfully Would come back because of him. Boston at Newberry St
Best staff and great food
Nice table sunlight was right in my husbands eyes with no way to lower shade since it was coming in sideways and no shade for that. Food was good as was service noise level was very loud difficult for conversation without yelling
Made reservations for New Years and had a marvelous dinner with GREAT cocktails and delicious food. Great location with a short stroll to Copley Sq. for fireworks at midnight.
We had a great waiter, service was wonderful and the buffalo chicken dip was the best!
We went to Joes for lunch on New Years Eve. We were a big group. They seated us on time. The food was delicious and our waiter was excellent (think his name was John). We ate at a bunch of places over the holiday and this was by far the best.
Prime rib was the greatest!!! Service was perfect and enjoyed the restaurant surroundings. A little expensive but location responsible for that factor.
Nice place, good food. Enjoyed with my wife and 2 little ones. Will look to go back when in Boston again.
Great location, menu and food. Waiter was a bit lacking.
Food was good but the service was incredibly slow
