Seafood
Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab is the culmination of a partnership between Lettuce Entertain You and Joe's Stone Crab, the legendary seafood restaurant of Miami Beach. Joe's features an extensive selection of seafood, flown in fresh daily, to complement the world's finest Florida Stone Crab claws. Joe's also features signature Prime steaks, hand-carved by master butchers, such as the 24 oz. Bone-In Rib Eye or Bone-in Filet Mignon. Matched with Joe's famous side dishes, dinner only gets better when capped with a slice of key lime pie. Enjoy a cocktail in the bustling lounge or the tuxedo-clad service of the dining room.

Joe’s is to seafood what Capitol Grill is to steaks, need I say more? The Stone Crab is the best but the grilled Madagascar shrimp is my second favorite.

Went for Rosh Hashanah. They tried to charge the adult price for the kids dinner. Brisket was dry. No apples for the kids. Service wasn’t good aside from the Som. Really disappointing.

A busy environment with varied clientele. Families, couples, groups of friends and co-workers, all gathered to partake in the drinks and fine cuisine of Joe's D.C. We arrived and were pleasantly greeted by the hosts and promptly brought to our table. Michael was our server and "guide" through our first Joe's experience and he did not disappoint. From his abundant knowledge of wine pairings and his attentive service, accompanied by pleasant conversation, we truly enjoyed the evening. And the food... oh the food, Nothing disappointed, we had wine, oysters, Caesar salad, filet, sides and a dessert. Michael and his support staff plated everything perfectly and made us both feel special. This is a very busy place but the superb staff makes it personal and that's not easy but they are true pro's. Thank you for YOUR service to us, staff at Joe's prime!

As always, everything was just right—heirloom tomato salad and sea bass were absolutely delightful. Staff was terrific from the wonderful gentleman who mans the front desk to each person you encounter during the meal. This is one of our favorite places for a nice evening out in DC. It does not disappoint!

It was ok. Food was good. We got stuck at a table facing the bussing stand. Granted, we were early and they nicely sat us before our scheduled time. I just wish it had been a more memorable experience given the price.

The dessert, bar, service and company made it a good night. The entrees and appetizers were average for the price, desserts were delicious. The gentleman who checked us in was a bit pretentious... we were three of four and would not be seated eventhough I stated the fourth was parking with valet...Unless they have a triangular table without the fourth we still would have been seated at a 4 top.... Jimmy our server was perfect, enjoyed him thoroughly.

Took my son to dinner, have eaten at Joes many times in Miami and found the DC restaurant just to be ok. Anytime I have been to Joes in the fast I knew I was going to pay a premium for my meal but it would be outstanding...not the case tonight.

My first trip to Joe's - rivals any of the dozen of high end steakhouses I have tried (St Elmo's, Ruth's Chris, Palms, Fleming's, Morton's, etc) and a step above most of these. I love the "local" vibe....

I always love Joe's, one of the few real fine-dining restaurants left, with linen tablecloths and all that, and the best breadbasket with those little onion rolls. The food is always excellent, and so is the service, but this visit, perhaps a bit too much so. We had a bit of business to discuss before settling down to order and our waiter did not seem to grasp that. It was unusually crowded so perhaps he was over-anxious.

Joe's is our go to place for all special occasions. We were here for our 8th wedding anniversary. We were there last year too for our 7th. We also come here for birthday celebrations and many times just as a "stop in" spot whenever in downtown DC. We love it there and the staff is always amazing.

My husband stated that this will absolutely be one of our main restaurants moving forward. Our server was extremely attentive and very knowlegable on the best food and wine choices on the menu. Highly recommend this restaurant and look foward to our next visit very soon.

I was looking forward to our dinner as it’s the last day before our son’s return back home. I ordered the seafood platter and it was very salty and the prawns were over cooked. Nothing really especially at all! My son’s steak looked dry with no sauce on offer. Everything seemed to be served in isolation with nothing to bring them together. Side dishes are boring with no side salads on offer. It’s overpriced and Underwhelming. Service was very good though!
