Joey's Italian Cafe Ratings and Reviews
Bottom line; service was very poor, very lazy. We arrived and the place was busy but not slammed. Our waiter Ty said to put the order in at once to avoid delay. So our salads and entrees at once. After 45 minutes our new neighbors received their appetizers in 10 minutes so we were 35 minutes ahead without even a salad. Ty said, “they ordered appetizers.” Well, Ty told us not to. By now the restaurant is 30% full, 70% empty. Our neighbors received their entrees, ate and left before we received our food. And as a bonus for waiting 65 minutes we weren’t offered water refills or pepper or cheese. The food and hostess all great.
Our waitress was just lovely, attentive, warm and helpful with special requests. The food GPM the gnocchi to the chicken entree to the fig pizza was delicious. The waitress even helped arrange a custom pizza for us without mozzarella and adding shrimp. Great place fir good food with family, friends or a date.
We were four Canadians enjoying Wynwood Walls
Food, service and ambiance were fantastic!!
Probably the best pomodoro outside of Italy. The Fig, pizza with honey was the best Pizza we ever tasted. Our server was charming and extremely professional. Definitely going back on our next trip to Miami.
We live close by but the last few times things just didn't seem right. However this evening everything was just different. Seemingly there is a new chef and our waitress was beyond excellent. It's now our go-to place again and we are glad it's back at it's best. Well done Chef and staff.
Very much enjoyed the food, we ordered the salmon tartar, caprese salad, Bronzino and Pear Tart. Everything tasted delicious and cooked/prepared very well. The music though is questionable, very quiet and non energetic while surprising for this area of town. A little better style of music would bring in even larger crowds.
Went for a special Mother's Day Celebration. Was very disappointed with the LACK of service. Took forever to get a server. We had two young daughters and we were starving. The spaghetti and meatballs was good but the steak was way overpriced. It just came with a salad. Not worth the $31. Also meatball appetizer was $16-and small. Unfortunately, we would not go back. The big plus was being right next to the Wynwood Walls but I have to say that is it. Also, they should offer to validate your parking as soon as you leave.
This was our 7th visit to Joey's. As always the quality remains intact. The food is always excellent and the ambiance is great. We recommend the Linguini Carbonara which is the best in Miami ! Also the thin crusted Pizza Margherita. This can be accompanied with the excellent Sangria (either white or red). Service always very pleasant with lots of smiles.
This is a perfect restaurant for before or after the Wynwood Art Walk.
We look forward to our 8th visit !
I heard a lot from this restaurant ("one of the best Italians in town") and decided to visit for the first time. I took a friend of mine who was in Miami visiting expecting a nice meal but unfortunately it was not what I expected. Although the waitress that served our table was nice and proper, there was some mix up with our plates, both entrees and main dishes arriving all at the same time. This meant that we had to eat our main course already cooked and heated for 15-20 min while we finished our entrees. In addition, the spaguetti a la vongole that I ordered was poor in flavour - and comparing it with others, I can say it does not meet the dishe´s expectations at all.
First time at this restaurant. It was superb! The service was friendly and everybody was constantly smiling. Everything was fresh and tasty. The pasta was delicious. Dessert was divine.
Atmosphere of the restaurant was lively and the location made it even more interesting.
Finally found a great place in wynwood to get together with friends and enjoy great food. Delicious!
I went to Joey's a few years ago and remembered it as being amazing. I ordered the gnocchi this time and it was bland. My husband had a steak and it was full of gristle. The bread they brought out before the meal was slightly stale. Even the quality of the coffee after the meal was not great. A good cup of coffee does not need sugar. This was bitter. On the bright side, our waiter, Alfredo, was amazing. Perhaps we should have stuck with the pizza...
