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.

Joe's is always top-notch. From the food, to the drinks, to the staff, you're never disappointed. The server is attentive, they space your courses out well, and the food is always fresh and amazing. Can't wait to go back.

Joe's is our family's favorite "go-to" place for special occasions. It's not quite an everyday dining place for those of fixed budgets. The food is outstanding and the service is impeccable. Their standard of guest service is really "off the charts" excellent. We had our favorites (ribeye and filet minon steaks, crab claws) with all the favorite sides. They were most accommodating to change to meet our young adults' palette. Our server was really wonderful. Highly recommend Joe's for your steak and seafood cravings. We will return again for our next special occasion.

The food and service were excellent. The coat check and waiting areas could be improved. Also retrieving a car could be easier. I had to stand inline to get my coat, place my purse and doggy bag on the floor to put on my coat and then go outside and wait another 10 minutes to retrieve my car from the valet.

Our waiter was good, but seemed to be handling too many tables. The food was excellent though. We ate there for restaurant week. We had to ask for the restaurant week menu. Didn't get the impression they we promoting the less expensive menu as much.

I dine at Joe's every time I'm in Chicago (unfortunately not that often). In my opinion, Joe's is the pinnacle of what should be expected from fine dining. Service, food, and atmosphere are ALWAYS spot-on!! It is well worth the money....don't hesitate, just make a reservation and do it early!! They book up 2-3 weeks in advance. :)
