Terrible service by our waiter Victor. The place and food were great. Too bad we had a terrible server this time around. I would go back, but I would ask not to have Victor serve us.

I love Joe’s in Miami so while on vacation we decided to visit Joe’s in DC for my birthday. We got seated early in the bar area which was very noisy and we had a booth near the restroom stairs, ugh! Our server was ok, no personality just focused on service. The food was good. We had the chopped salad, Manhattan chowder, and grilled seafood. The server appeared disgusted to bring me a candle and dessert for my birthday- i would have rather not had the and wishes. My recommendation, don’t come here if you are celebrating a special event. Atmosphere was stuffy for no reason as there wasn’t an enforced dress code...I will not return to Joe’s in DC when visiting.

Beautiful decor, nice ambiance however the waiter was quite annoying. He kept coming to the table as we were trying to decide the lighting was rather dim and he didn’t provide any assistance. Food was good the steak was a little more chard than I would prefer on the outside and rare on the inside which I ordered med well. I also would have perfected him to cut my steak since it was 79.00 for a bone in ribeye. Overall I would dine there again.

We were in Washington, D C for a family wedding and had the good luck to have Joe's on our list of restaurants to try. The atmosphere was very festive, food was superb, and the service was without equal thanks to the care and knowledge of our server extraordinaire, David Major . Liked it so much we went the following day for a lunch which our son had planned. Another great success.

I was there for my anniversary with my girlfriend. She’d been craving seafood and I wanted to treat her to a nice dinner. The staff and ambiance gave the place a more classy feel, but you could still be casual if you wanted (which is great). We then had some of the best food either of us has ever eaten. Very friendly wait staff. And they help each other when your waiter may be busy with another table, which doesn’t always happen. Prices are high but you get what you pay for, and I got an amazing dinner with an elegant ambiance. Helpful hint: ask questions about the menu (i.e. substitutions, additions, etc). The kitchen is very flexible.

Awesome bone-in ribeye - think it was the best we have ever had. Excellent food and service. Our only complaint would be how crowded the tables were placed together - was even difficult for the staff to navigate.

We were lucky to get a reservation 90 minutes from my first effort on Open Table. Arriving a few minutes early we were seated right away and during the next 30 minutes watched as the restaurant rapidly filled. Jenny, our server was very helpful suggesting the specials for the day and making us feel very welcome.

We were celebrating a birthday and were presented with a very nice desert (sans singing, for which my wife was very grateful). Service excellent, food quality and presentation very high.

In a City very busy at excellent restaurants we were treated very well and I’ll be happy to eat here again on our next visit to the nation’s capital.

What can I say, the food and service was wonderful. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. The only little glitch was when the busboy started clearing off our table. I wasn’t quite finished with my potato. He didn’t ask me if I was finished. I wasn’t. He cleared all our plates anyway. So I had to say goodbye to a little bit of potato. No big deal. I was just taken a back. Compare to everything else,that was so great, this was minor event. I would go back again and again. If you’re in the area do not miss this restaurant!

We arrived and got accosted by a hustler in lobby who proceeded to curse and yell at us about politics while he begged my husband and his boss for a job. The food was great and so was our waitress. She didn’t really recommend anything or go into detail when asked questions. The timing of things just seemed to be off. Did I mention the food was great? It was. Husband has the tuna, I had the skirt steak with lime butter and boss has stone crab. Outside of the people control coming in the establishment, everything was good.
