The seating process was very selective in the poorest sense. Half hour late with the claim that we didn't check in together, where I cleary heard my wife saying we were all there. When I double checked why it was taking long, he claimed we didn't check in together. My kids asked why others who had similar size parties and checked in afterwards were seated first. Only difference was how we looked. Actual service during dinner was great, terrible initial experience.

It was my daughter's college graduation. The four of us were not disappointed. Everything was delicious and our server Colleen couldn't do enough for us. The meal and service was the best we have had in quite a while. Thank you. We will definitely come again very soon!

The food was exceptional! The service was absolutely wonderful! We had our 6 year old grandson with us and he was treated very well. Loved the snow crab, sea bass and oysters on the half shell. Dessert was delicious. I would spend my birthday here again!

At risk of sounding like my s$&t doesn’t stink..... I had the 60 day dry aged ribeye. I expected the world out of this, but didn’t quite live up to the expectations. My brother raves about it. A bit Chewy, kinda fatty, but good flavor. The steak “Oscar” my wife had was better. Key lime pie, PHENOMENAL!!! Charred octopus, delish!! Madagascar shrimp? Decent but not worth the price. Drinks awesome! Dave, our waiter, was very pleasant. Am I wrong for wondering.... if I’m going to pay quite a bit of money for dinner, would it be too much to ask that they have some type of dress code? Could be a bit over the top, but same thing happened to another restaurant I used to frequent, needless to say, quality of food went down. Overall, I would go back.

First time there and it was fabulous! Had a delicious Dover Sole, while others had other fish entrees. Everyone was delighted with their choices and the fresh veggies. Crab Bisque was stupendous and wish I had gotten a bucket to go. Looking forward to returning.

Joes is one of our go-to spots in Chicago. We usually always get the same thing, that being steak and crab. This time we ventured out and tried something different....fried chicken and fish. Joes never disappoints! Delicious!!

Staff always remembers my name and provides vip service. I eat at Joe’s 3-4 times per month and have never been disappointed. Jeff the bartender deserves a raise. Great attitude and real conversation everytime I visit. I’ll be back. Will H.

Ok, first I must say that I love this place! Excellent service upon checking in for our reservation to dining experience.

Everything our hostess Martha recommended was divine.
She was gracious and friendly, was patient with a few of dinner guests! Thank you so much for that because they were first timers at Joe’s.

We had a wonderful Valentine's Day lunch with excellent service. We were very disappointed with the change of menu. Stone crab was one of the lunch choices and now everything is alacarte creating a much larger bill.

My husband and I went here for a Valentine’s Day lunch. The service was great and the decor was wonderful. My husband and I love seafood, so we were unimpressed by our food. I ordered the seafood platter and the jumbo shrimp were OK, lobster tail was extremely salty and lacking flavor. I love lobster tails and if I do not finish one, it is not a good one. My husband ordered the salmon which he found underwhelming and lacking in seasoning. My husband and I frequent the Boston Fish Market in DesPlaines and their seafood is FAR better. We spend $100 at the Boston Fish Market and have tons of leftovers to bring home. If you want to have bland seafood in downtown setting then go to Joe’s. Otherwise, frequent a true seafood establishment with well seasoned food;)

Always an amazing meal! Love the atmosphere, service, and more importantly the food! It is so delicious. Everyone was so happy with the way the food tasted. One of the best steaks in the city of Chicago (and let’s be honest that means a lot in this city!)

Would recommend this restaurant for any special occasion!

The food and service was great and I would highly recommend this restaurant. The place was also refreshingly quiet enough to easily have a conversation.
However, if you plan to use the valet service make sure to bring exact change since the valet will not make change, forcing you tip them excessively.
