Even with a reservation, we waited 15 minutes to order bread and cocktails. The meals took excessively long, (our server apologized) . The chicken piccata: There was so much water on the plate because the pasta hadn’t been properly drained. There was NO sauce and the chicken looked pale white (boiled) with a slight brown color (quickly heated on grill). It was sent back, with my decline for a replacement.

Two orders of 7oz filet. One was ordered as medium well, it came out very red. The second was fine and enjoyed.

As we were celebrating our daughters engagement, our desserts were comped, which was very kind.

We’ve been patrons of this location of Joe’s for well over ten years and noticed that the overall quality continues to decline. Unfortunately, we will no longer be visiting and wish the location well.

The Menu seems more limited than years past. They did have prime rib on the regular every day menu but $29 seems rather pricey for it but the portion was excellent. It had a spice rub which had an odd church incense like flavor/scent to it, would to know what that is. It was interesting. The sides were excellent but my husband did not like his clam chowder which had a weird flavor and had to send it back. Also $3 for coffee and Iced Tea seems excessive too. The place was only 1/3 full for Valentine's Day. I loved the mashed potato and crispy green beans.

The service was excellent but the food was just average for the above average price. My 11 year old grandson wanted beef and had to get a $29 meal for steak tips. This was the only option.

Food is decent, but martinis skimpy and weak.

Disappointing menu with decreased selections.
Empty at 8pm on a Friday but service was painfully slow and inattentive.
For the money: go across to Legacy Place

Good food in a friendly neighborhood atmosphere, but wine prices much too high - $13-14 for many of their glasses of wine not reasonable at all.

Salads were exceptionally fresh and full...the grilled honey chicken soft and delicious....

There is a new ownership of Joes. The menu is small, and food (at least mine) was absolutely inedible. I complain to the wait person, and it was taken off my bill. I don't want a replacement or courtesy free meal. I have been coming to this restaurant since it was JC Hillarys. Also, the new manager, was unhelpful, and was clueless about the reservation I had. It was noon, and unlike in the past, the restaurant was empty. Obviously, news spreads about the changes.

Not what it used to be. Food was just OK, took to long, and was not particularly hot when it arrived. Long periods of not seeing our server, but she did give the birthday girls free dessert which was very nice.

Restaurant really busy with theaters letting out and shoppers calling it a day. Service kind of slow at first but picked up and was fine. Food hit the spot —especially delicious on such a cold night with its warmth and good taste.

Instant seating with friendly waiter. Before we finished two bites of their delicious warm bread our tasty salads were brought to us. Very fast service - kudos to all!

Joe’s was the perfect spot for a post Stars Wars dinner! We brought six grand children to the movie and then to Joe’s. We were seated immediately and served promptly. Our waitress was attentive and friendly. Food was perfect for this special group!

Nothing special about this place. Plenty of other restaurants around legacy place that I’d put ahead.

Joe's is a great option for casual dining in Dedham. I love the location to Legacy Place, making it a great before or after shopping spot! The restaurant has plenty of space to accommodate large parties.
