Waiters were incredibly inconvenienced at even the slightest request. Our table had more than enough room to accommodate an extra chair but when we politely asked, you would have thought we had threatened someone’s life. The food was very good and we had a great experience overall but our waiter’s attitude only seemed to change positively when he realized that we were spending more than he expected us to.

Everything was wonderful! Service was fantastic. Chaz, our waiter went above and beyond. Our table had the stuffed shrimp, crab cakes, filet & tail and stone crab. The mustard sauce is out of the world. Mac and cheese is an excellent side. I could go on forever! We will definitely be back!

Came for a holiday lunch with a friend. Started out with champagne and oysters which were outstanding. Delicious wines by the glass. My friend had the seafood platter which was fresh and amazing. I had the beef Wellington which melted in my mouth. We finished with the famous key lime pie. Our waiter was helpful and attentive. I can’t wait to come back.

We've eaten at Joe's many times and always loved every aspect of their meals especially their steaks. This recent dining experience we were disappointed in the quality and taste of their steaks after eating better more flavorful meals at Benny's, Gibson's and the Signature room the past few weeks. Was sad to have this experience as we have always recommended Joe's to our friends as a wonderful dining experience. Sad to see that it has declined.

We enjoyed the ambience, service and quality. Our server, Michelle, was very attentive and her support staff were constantly tending to our table. We have visited several times and always enjoy the food, cocktails and service of this establishment. I would rate it as excellent on any food critics checklist.

The restaurant is in a great location and easy to find. The menu is varied and equally interesting. What we chose was just perfect and very tasty. Even had room for a dessert and the staff was excellent in guiding us to our choice which we thoroughly enjoyed.

Another wonderful meal at Joe’s. Can’t make ourselves eat anywhere else when we are in Chicago. Everything is so delicious ❤️❤️❤️I guess if I had one complaint it would be not enough room left for dessert😫

Our meal and our service were absolutely top-notch; they didn’t miss on anything. Had three apps (crab cake, shrimp and tuna tartare) and all were spot on perfect. Our dinners were filet and sea bass and both were amazing. My wife and I had a wonderful evening and will absolutely be back again in the future. We were too full to eat desert there so we took it home and it was great. This restaurant is worth every penny for the price. Quite possibly the best meal I have ever eaten.

Food and service great. We go with our friends every year to celebrate our anniversaries.
The only thing that was terribly annoying is where we were seated. A round for 6 people was great but we were in a VERY BUSY traffic row. My husbands chair was bumped multiple times and he was quite annoyed. When the restaurant is busy (which I suspect is often) it is advisable to ask to be seated away fro the main row where patrons and servers move quickly the whole evening.
I certainly will follow my own advise in the future, It would have made for a much better dining experience, esp for my husband

Visited on our anniversary. Great service. Little crowded and loud but it’s also a Saturday evening in December. Food is a little pricey. Portions are a good size but not generous.

Joe's is a wonderful spot for high quality food. Our waiter, Dan (Big Dan) is a true professional. He was aware of how our meal was progressing, and allowed us to be leisurely. He made excellent recommendations, including a special shrimp appetizer. The stone crab was great. Wine list was great and Dan made sure we had the wine of our choice. My friend thoroughly enjoyed her coconut cream pie. Great place to celebrate.

We got seated at a table by the kitchen that was pushed up against the wall. It was my birthday and I was with my parents, brother, sister-in-law, and my 90 year old grandmother. The wait staff continuously knocked my grandmothers chair and mine as they walked by to the kitchen and my parents were sitting up against the wall. It was not a good birthday experience unfortunately.
