slightly above average food that is overpriced. Would expect this kind of place on Ocean Drive in south beach, not in Wynwood, where there are lot of better places, that are not as expensive

I was very disappointed with the service at Joeys. I was promptly sat down and practically forgotten. I had to ask for water and flag down anyone for refills. I even had to ask for my check and then was asked who helped. Of course I said really no one, just anyone that I caught their attention. It was really sad. Management really needs to address this issue as I saw the same issue from the few patrons around me.

Great little Italian spot in the Wynwood neighborhood of Miami, really solid italian fare and i loved the wine list. The branzino was excellent and the pizzas were great. Our server Alex was fantastic, engaging, funny and very knowledgeable on the food. You have to checkout the mural art in the Wynwood area, truly fantastic work by various artists. Really a wonderful experience, highly recommend Joey's.

We come to Joey's for many years and we know the place from day 1 -- I just came back from abroad and brought some friends for dinner - expecting to find the usual good Italian food - straight forward but since their Italian Ivo chef left - the experience is totally different - average food - the pizza wasn't close to what it used to be and the pasta - no longer al dente - covered with the typical too creamy sauces that cover up - just about everything.....not my place anymore -

This was our first time ever going to Joey's Italian Cafe. We were in Miami only for vacation and not knowing the area all too well we decided to go for Italian. What a great decision it was. The staff is super friendly and our waiter was so nice and attentive. The pizza margherita was delicious! Also, I had ordered the linguine carbonara... huge portion and I was super full after dinner. All in all I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking to eat something other than Cuban/Spanish food in the area! You will not be disappointed !

The grilled octopus was outstanding! Grilled to perfection with a delicate sauce and accompanying tart/fresh salad. Loved it.... service was OK....Lovely and sweet waiter, but coffee order was taken incorrectly and it too a lot of effort to get the check. ( which normally, does not concern me, as I do not like to be rushed, but this was unusual.... )

Grilled octopus was tasty and tender served with a delicious herb sauce and endive salad. Our pastas were beautifully presented (vongole / shrimp-nice but not spicy). I’d go back. Right next to Wynwood Walks, so see the murals before or after.

Great spot for some casual Italian fare in Miami. The food was quite good, but the service was what really stood out - top notch. The team here made sure the food arrived promptly and that my water glass was never empty - a feat after a long day at the beach. The Pappardelle was rich and the tiramisu a perfect sweet ending to my meal. Great outdoor seating options!

So glad that we had lunch at Joeys. The food was delicious. The servers were so friendly and attentive to our needs. We ate inside but they have a beautiful outdoor dining area as well. The restaurant was very pretty. Will definitely be back when we are in the area and will recommend to others. 5 stars for sure!!

This was our first trip to wynwood walls and Joey’s.
It was my wife’s birthday and we had the most wonderful lunch experience. We arrived at 12 and sat outside.

The waiter, sorry I don’t remember his name, made us feel right at home. He was friendly and professional explaining the menu to us.
Our meal was delicious. I had pasta promodora and my wife asked for shrimp primavera which wasn’t on the menu. The waiter said, “ no problem” and he requested the chef to accommodate us. It was delicious as was my pasta.

We had mentioned that it was my wife’s birthday. I’m a few minutes your manager, Guerrmo, brought to our table a wonderful desert with a lit candle. All of the waiters came to our table and sang happy to her. He took her pictures and we had a very special experience at Joey’s.

A little later we were walking around and Guerrmo saw us and we chatted for a few minutes. This gentleman represents your company in the finest tradition and we look forward to have another special dining experience at Joey’s.

One comment.. I thought your meal prices were very reasonable however I though $10 for a glass of wine at lunch time was a little pricey.

Thank you again for making my wife’s birthday a very special occasion!

All the best!

On a busy Saturday night, we were seated promptly with a genuine smile (hostess), loved our waiter who was jovial and patient, and checked on by management during the meal.

Most people order the pizzas which we've had before but the branzino was cooked to utter perfection, with roasted potaotes and the romaine salad, a delicious healthy meal. We shared the meatballs appetizer (must have) and dipped the fresh crusty bread in the sauce. Can't wait to come back.
