A joke! Don't come here if you are looking for Italian food. Also, this place BLASTS horrible Latin music. The staff & clientele were some of the weirdest people Ive ever seen.

Ate on the patio. It was lively and loud, but not so loud we couldn’t talk. The DJ was great. Pizza was quite good and the passion fruit sangria was amazing!!

Waiter was excellent. Really took care of my husband’s dietary restrictions and suggested drinks for my daughter and myself. All the food was delicious and arrived very fast. Ambiance on the patio was delightful! Waiter told us to come back for brunch one day soon. We definitely will!

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!

We're considering hosting an important event at Joey's, so we went to check it out. Wanting an overall impression, we tried several items (meatballs, pasta carbonara, mushroom risotto, chicken picatta, and two desserts). Everything was delicious, and the service and ambience were excellent! I would highly recommend Joey's Italian for lunch!

It was ok. The service was slow even though we were the only ones in the dining area, there were a few families outside.

Food was just ok.

First visit for us as we visited the art installation next door.
Service was fast and friendly. Food was relatively quick and darn good for the price. I ate the leftover for dinner.
Lunch was spaghetti and meatballs - great. Flatbread - pretty good. Lentil soup - awesome!
In the Wynwood area for lunch? I heartily recommend Joeys.

We have eaten several times at Joey's and have enjoyed the experience. At our most recent visit, the service was abysmal. Waited 10 minutes at table before a waitress arrived...restaurant was not crowded yet at 5:30. Service throughout meal was painfully slow. Veal marsala ordered in the past was delicious but this time artived swamped in thick gooey brown gravy overloaded with garlic. Dining mate ordered light sauce on pasta but dish came swimming in red sauce to the point of overflowing over side of bowl. Repeated requests for glass of wine not fulfilled until meal almost over. This was not a typical Joey's experience so we will try it again in the future. If this had been our first visit there, we would not have returned.

The service was terrific. Great servers who were polite, caring and knowledgeable. The Caesar salad was very basic and came undressed. It was easier to use oil and vinegar than ask.... the Joey pizza was average. I asked for it to be done crispy, he said it would be, it wasn’t. We all were full after that and never ordered the pasta and branzino we were considering. Best part is the location of the restaurant. Right in the middle of Wynwood activity.

We come a few times a year. Food and ambiance always good. My wife ordered the clams this time and it seemed that the pasta was cooked separately from clams and lacked any kind of flavor. Pasta was cooked perfectly but lacked any taste. Some of her clams were unopened ( must have been a new person in kitchen. My dish was fine.
