As usual, the food was excellent, the specials are quite good, and the recommendations were spot on.

Started out with Cocktails and jumbo Stone crab. It only got better from there.

It is very important to point out that our server was excellent. She was on top of us at every appropriate moment. Recommendations recommendations were really quite nice.

We clearly were dealing with somebody who took pride in their job and performs a true professional. I certainly hope that management Will read this and at least recognize what a wonderful server they have on their staff.

Looking forward to the next trip in

The service was outstanding!!! We received wonderful recommendations. The crabs with the sauce were superb, the bone in ribeye was cooked to perfection with great flavor, accompanied by the Madagascar colossal shrimp. I strongly recommend the experience. Beautiful atmosphere... don’t miss out, you must eat here!

Joe’s is usually spot on but service was way off, slow and inattentive. Food was great but with a slower night should have been taken care of in Joe’s usual style, not this time though.

I ate at Joe's in Miami several years and being a longtime Florida this brought back great memories of the beautiful collossol stone crab in Florida. The service was exceptional and the awesome bone-in filet was cooked to perfection. It is pricey, but worth every dollar.

Was a little skeptical since we had been to Joe’s in Miami before, this one was way better. Loved the wine. Loved the service. Food was what i expected. Crab cake was delicious. Filet was a little dry, lobster tail was perfect. Drinks (bourbon smash) really tasty too...

Busy, friendly and top quality restaurant. Excellent service from reception to bar to table and then throughout the meal. Our waiter Ivan was exceptional, only too happy to explain the menu, particularly in respect of the Stone Crab, bringing out a selection of sizes of crabs claws so I could choose the size and number of claws I would like. If you like crab you have to try these. Followed them with the grilled seafood platter which included jumbo shrimps, lobster tails and scallops, good size portion I couldn’t fit in a dessert ! My husband had the NY Strip and French Fries, the knife went through the steak like a knife through butter and was delicious. Ivan recommended one portion of french fries between the two of us and he was right.

So good we’re going back again on Sunday and we’ve asked to be on one of Ivan’s tables.

This was a business dinner that required a private conversation. I asked for a booth, and we were taken to one. The waiter was helpful but not intrusive; the food was very good, and the evening went well. I have been to Joe's many time -- client was from Miami and a first to Joe's. I appreciated the discretion of the staff. Lobster was not Joe's best but the petit filet was excellent and the client very much enjoyed his 4 courses. This remains an energetic, lively restaurant in a great location and perfect for a dinner meeting.

I was traveling to D.C. and had found this place on google. I’m thinking 4.7 stars, this place has to be amazing. I ordered the rib eye medium well and some potatoes. My food literally came out 5 minutes later. The steak came out undercooked so I send it back and the potatoes were at best warm. Instead of making me a new steak they put my same steak back in the oven and it was of course overly well done and dried out when they bought it back out to me.,Mind you this is a 50.00 steak and this is what you do. So they go back again and the steak comes back out. Still not cooked right and by now I’m over it. The waitress barely came over and the manager never came over to address this issue. I paid and left and trust I will NEVER go back here.

Overall, I really like Joe’s but they need to get covers over the AC vents so the cold air doesn’t blow directly on you and your food. Of course the food has no chance of being even remotely warm because of the arctic blasts from the AC. PLEASE invest in covers to redirect the air. The vents I am speaking of are in the bar area above the booths that line the wall. I’m sure this is an issue all over but I can only speak to where I have experienced this issue MANY times.

We arrived on Saturday at 11:30 am for my birthday brunch( party of 2). Since Joe's just opened it was fairly empty. Unfortunately we were not greeted warmly, barely at all upon entry but were thankfully shown to our seats immediately. Our waiter came by promptly to introduce himself and gave us the spiel about how Joe's got started as well as the specials. I ordered the Chilean seabass with a side of 4 cheese mac & cheese and my date had the brunch special of the skirt steak. My seabass was pretty good, tender,flaky and a nice taste but the star of my meal was the mac and cheese. Best mac and cheese I have ever tasted. It had a nice crisp to the top and ooey gooey melted cheese mixed in with the pasta shells cooked perfectly. My dates skirt steak was supposed to be prepared medium well but was cooked more along the lines of well done and unfortunately way too salty to really enjoy. He did like the sunny side eggs and potatoe hash that accompanied the meal. To finish our brunch we ended with the brownie sundae which again just didnt wow me. I think if the brownie has been warmed up a bit it would have taken the dessert up to another level. Lastly while our waiter's personality was great I feel like he lacked the sense of urgency and attentiveness you expected in a fine dining restaurant and especially when it's so empty. We were left waiting multiple times (to put in drink orders, to order our meal and for the check at the end). I've been to the Joe's in Chicago and I must say I was more impressed with that location than the DC one. Its unfortunate but I'm not sure I will frequent this particular establishment again.
