The food is absolutely amazing. It is a terrific spot in "cool" Wynwood, and a nice change from the beach. Portions are huge and prices are much better than on SOBE.

Wonderful menu options. Great outdoor seating. The pricing for bottles of wine we’re really great. The Buratino Pizza was divine - it’s like Burrata & Tomatoes on top of a pizza. YUM! Followed by gnocchi with pink sauce and had delicious grilled salmon. Capped it off with an espresso before leaving. The service was great and everyone was very friendly. I would return and highly recommend.

Celebrated a birthday with the family. Amazing food, great wine selection and the best service from the whole staff! Our waitress was Rocky, she was funny, amicable and tied the whole experience together. Wonderful time at Joeys and can’t wait to go back!

The crew at Joey’s are amazing! Everyone was so courteous and kind! The food and cocktails were also so good (I’d suggest the calamari to start). We first came here 3 years ago and came back for nostalgia, and it was definitely worth it. We will absolutely be back!

Although the food was very good, the indoor AC was broken so we had to sit outdoors. It was pretty hot out there and the noise level on the street was like being in a nightclub.
The restaurant should have called ahead of time to let us know the AC was broken!!

Great evening at Joeys! My only issue was that our main meal was bought at the same time as the starters. Would have preferred it spaced out. But food was excellent, and we really enjoyed our evening there.

Because of memorial weekend they decided to close early. My reservation was 8:30 pm. 9 pm they closed the kitchen. 9:30 they were rushing out of the place. They called me 7:30 pm that same day to let me know that they were closing earlier because it was Sunday, when in reality was because they expected problems in the area due to the long weekend.

Have they told me the truth from the beginning I would have switched my diner plans to somewhere else.

I am very disappointed with the service and their honesty. Not going back, cannot trust this place. sorry.

Very friendly. We arrived early for our reservation because we were done early from the Van Gogh exhibit and they greeted us with “no problem “. Seated outside and very pleasant. Great service and food. We were not rushed at all and they offered to split checks for us. Pizza and salad was wonderful. I will definitely go back!

The food here is good old fashion Italian, it’s right in the heart of Wynwood so there is obviously noise from traffic and people walking by in the streets but it’s not very noticeable. The service is a bit slow but that’s Miami for you

Chicken and waffles was one plate with a piece of chicken and one plate with a waffle. No artistry or integration between the foods even attempted. Maybe my expectations are too high. I would’ve told the waiter / manager — but they never asked how my food was. Just brought me the check. Place is pretty and the weekend DJ is a nice touch for Wynwood. And I may have had a better experience had I ordered a different dish. But given that the waiter and manager didn’t even try, I doubt I’ll be back.

The food is delicious - the Meatball Pizza was a good choice. Their salads are fabulous as well. The only challenge was the salads arrived after our Pizza had been served, not sure what happened though it was a busy Saturday afternoon!

Love Joey's, staff is friendly and professional and food is always delicious!
