Food was awesome. Great service. Friendly people. High end dinning.
Service, food and ambience was awesome. A must Restaurant stop when in downtown Washington, DC.
I was at Joe's in mid-April 2018 for a friendly business chat during Joe's great weekday happy hour. Only had appetizers but based on this it's likely most of the food is quite good. Especially enjoyed Ahi tuna appetizer, with cubes of tuna, accompanied by a modest amount of avocado and a very tasty creamy wasabi aioli. Impressive number of options for wine by the glass. Fast service by competent staff, who bring a professional helpful demeanor. Joe's is pricey, but acceptable value during the lengthy happy hour. The place was chock full at 5:30. I was very glad other reviewers said reservations were important, because I would not have been able to wait for a table. I was comfortable eating and talking in a booth in the lounge and was very comfortable. Noise not a problem, TVs over the bar not blaring or intrusive.
We were in DC for 5 days and stopped for drinks one day and watched mouth watering meals come out one after the other. We made reservations for the next night! The wine list is amazing and they have a wine steward to help you choose. Our waitress was incredible and the food was the best. I had Alaskan king crab legs and my husband had the filet. It was by far the best meal we both have had in years- we travel and eat out a lot. This restaurant is a must - but make reservations.
Loud. Crowded. Mediocre service. Ok food but not worthy of the price. Been there. Done that. No need to go back.
The meal was fabulous and the service impeccable. We brought friends who had never been for a birthday celebration and they were very happy with our recommendation. Everyone got some type of seafood/fish and everyone thought it was cooked to perfection.
Excellent Dover sole and service.
Amazing Bellini and Bloody Mary.
Crab roll was OK.
Great food and excellent service from Stephen!
First time at Joe’s for brunch. We usually dine here for dinner and it has always been my favorite restaurant in DC so it was only right to come for brunch and they did not disappoint. I had the strawberry waffles and some eggs and my husband had the Joe’s scrambler. Everything was delicious! India was our waiter and she was wonderful! Will definitely frequent Joe’s for brunch in addition to our regular dinner visits!
Top notch in every category. Beautiful building, interior, service, food choices, preparation and taste.
Excellent service. Beyond beyond outstanding service and food quality
Great time. Waiter was wonderful and knowledgeable about the diffferent food choices. Food was delicious
Great seafood but relatively ordinary steaks. Mine was over cooked. Sides were predictable, but OK. Good service. Fun, rambunctious atmosphere late on a Friday night.
We came to DC for a tour of the city! Loved Joe’s in Vegas so decided to try it here! Good idea! Love Joe’s! Service great and they know how to treat guests! Food, drinks and staff are the best! Dover sole can’t be beat! Order anything and you will be happy!
Great food and excellent service!!!!
Very good meal and cocktails. The chilled Jumbo Alaska King Crab Legs was excellent. I have never tried it chilled before and loved it.
Special dinner for our trip to DC. The seafood was wonderful, great atmosphere, attentive waitstaff. We were well pleased and would return.
Impeccable service and excellent meal! Exactly what we have come to expect from Joe's!
We ate here this past thursday, the restaurant was awesome. Most importantly our server was fantastic. I can’t remember her name, she has blonde hair and a new crab claw pen! She was so great. Made awesome dessert recommendations and was very attentive.
I made a reservation and got there early so we sat at the bar and ended up staying there to eat. Great staff, very knowledgeable and friendly. Hard to decide what to have but loved my choices.
We went and had the crab, amazing, and the crab stuffed shrimp, heavenly, and I had the seafood pasta. We are reguar eaters of fine dining, farm to table, and high quality foods. We don't eat fast food and enjoy great food. This was the best meal we've ever had. We also had the steak tartar and tuna tartar for apps. Tuna tartar was delicious and the steak tartar was out of this world. Our waiter was also very attentive and very helpful when explaining the menu. Great place!
We had the steaks, and they were quite good. The brussels were good, but not the best I've had. The fried asparagus were really good. The steak and lobster were good, but not the best I've had. The experience was probably the best part. The service is top level, quick, friendly, informative, not pushy. There's no dress code, but this is a place where you really should wear a suit. Not a tie necessarily, but you'll feel a bit out of place in less than a suit as it is pretty upscale and the waiters are wearing tuxes. I will definitely go back. Oh, and it definitely seemed to be filled with the who's who of white house politics. They call it the lobbyist's lair for a reason.
This is my third time at Joe's and, as always, the food, service and ambiance were excellent. Honestly, I do not have one negative thing to say about Joe's. Every time I go with friends, they always rave about their meals. What's not to like? Incredibly tasty food served at exactly the right temperature is all you can ask for at a restaurant. And the service at Joe's is always the amazing frosting on the amazing cake. Every time I'm at Joe's, there isn't an employee who doesn't greet you with a smile and a "hello" and a "we hope you enjoyed your meal." It's a very warm atmosphere, and the staff is very accommodating.
Since I have always gone at lunchtime, many people take advantage of their two-course meal lunch special, which consists of meat or seafood, two sides, and a dessert. It's a great value and you get to try a variety of things.
My favorite item is the fried chicken. If you haven't tried it, you really have to give it a shot! Fried chicken can be lowly fare, but when it's done right, it's elevated to haute cuisine. And Joe's does just that. The chicken is moist, meaty, nicely seasoned ... everything you'd ever want in your fried chicken. And the serving size of the chicken is enough for 2 people to share, but who wants to give up even a small portion of their perfectly fried chicken?!? The Lyonnaise potatoes are the perfect side. One of these days I'll branch out and have a steak or a sandwich (which look terrific when I see them flying past my table). I'm sure they're incredible.
So, yes, go to Joe's. It's worth every penny and you'll have a wonderful time!
Once again, an absolute home run in every category - food and drink, service, and general hospitality. Thanks you!
Beautiful restaurant. Consistently excellent service and cuisine.
Nice decor and excellent service, good food but too salty for us. Maybe use less salt and let the individual use additional salt?
Amazing food. The restaurant wowed my guests and was as excellent as always.
Great dinner with coworkers. Food and service were outstanding. I’ve been to Joe’s in South Beach...I’m glad to know Joe’s has a presence in DC!
The food was outstanding, but even better was the excellent service!
We had a party of 6 and everyone enjoyed their food. We all had stone crab claws which were delicious. The scallops in the grilled seafood combination were a excellent. Everyone had either seafood or steaks and everyone enjoyed their meal. The peanut butter pie with hot fudge was the best we had ever had. It is a must. Great service.
excellent lunch with great service in pleasant surroundings
From start to finish...what an experience! To be so well served, is a rarity now adays. The food was outstanding! But the service is what we truly appreciated.
Really good service n a busy restaurant
Our grandson , aged 23 , thought this was one of the best steaks he had eaten in his life.
Small filet mignon
My wife had pasta with seafood, excellent choice
I also had the filet mignon, very hard to beat
Went to Joe's to celebrate my birthday & I am glad I did. Food was EXCELLENT and our service was GREAT as well!! Definitely will dine again.
I love Joe’s. Seafood better than steaks. Sides are great. And stone crabs are my favorite.
Celebrated here for my mother's 70th birthday. The food and service was excellent!
My wife’s steak was super over done. She asked for a well done but her steak was completely burned and very salty.
Either than that great experience.
Planning to come back soon. :)
I was celebrating my birthday and I was late for my reservation. On top of that, I had to add 2 guests to my reservation. They explained that the wait may be a while, but they would be able to accommodate my request. I only waited 10 minutes before my table was ready. The service was excellent and I had a great birthday dinner. Thank you. The food was excellent! I will be returning to try the Stone Crab when the weather warms up!
Fabulous place. Doesn’t disappoint. Valet parking is helpful due to the location. Perfectly cooked and presented. The stone crab claws are worthy.
Absolutely wonderful dinner. Delicious food and great service. Top notch for a reason, make sure to have a reservation!
