It was fantastic food, service was great, and we loved it!
This was my first visit, for a casual dinner with a friend. I will definitely be back!
Very delicious food went for a birthday / Valentine’s dinner we both loved our meals but were there a very long time and service was very slow, waiter wasn’t as attentive as i would’ve liked. Otherwise for what we paid i felt like it was worth it and overall a great place!
As always the wine, food, and service was amazing.
My husband and I had a great experience in our first visit to Josef Barbados Steakhouse. The food was wonderful but the service was 2nd to none. Enrique was our waiter and we will request him every time we return. He was very helpful and knew a lot about the entrees and especially about the wines. It was a fantastic overall experience and we can’t wait to return!
My husband and I had a lovely dinner here. We both had the fresh oysters for a starter, and they were very good. We both then had a seafood entree, and those were exceptionally fresh and flavorful.
The atmosphere is very upscale, good for quiet conversation.
The service was a little slow due to a large party in the back, but it wasn’t problematic. Staff was engaging and knowledgeable.
Fine dining experience.
Odd strip-mall location but interior is suitably chic.
Leave plenty of time if you have plans later, the pacing is luxuriously slow.
Food was decent. Not worth the prices though.
A very nice restaurant. Enjoyed everything about it. The food was excellent and the service was impeccable.
Went for our anniversary. Food was awesome and so was the wait service. Very nice place for special occasions. A little pricey but worth it. Haven't been there in years but it was just as good as before. We will be back!!!!
We were celebrating my wife’s birthday and this was our first visit. I reached out to see if the restaurant could make special accommodations and they delivered. I stopped by the restaurant before our reservation to deliver some gifts and they walked me through how the night would go. Needless to say, the night was perfect and my wife was very surprised by the entire experience.
Ambiance for date night was very good. Starting from being seated till the end the service was very very slow. Food was very good but it just took too long for everything to get to the table. For the prices I would not go back. I couldn’t even imagine how the service would be if the place was crowded !!
THE FOOD WAS GREAT AS USUAL AND THE PACE IS GREAT FOR CONVERSATION TO MEET
AND TALK. ALTHOUGH I SPECIFICALLY INDICATED IT WAS TO CELEBRATE TWO BIRTHDAYS
AND THE WAITER ACKNOWLEDGED THAT THEY DID A SPECIAL SPARKLER TO DO SO HE
FAILED TO END THE NIGHT IN SUCH A MANNER.
One of the best dining experiences I have had. Anywhere, ever!
Only issue was getting steak prepared to requested temperature. Had to send back twice. Have eaten here on multiple prior occasions and is only time with an issue.
My wife and I loved it, will definitely return. Everything we had was great, the waitress was excellent, the dining room was very comfortable.
Dinner was pretty good, Steak was cooked perfectly and the service was extremely friendly and accommodating.
Enrico is a great waiter! Makes your meal an excellent experience!
This was our 3 or 4th time at Josef's. Unfortunately it was our worse visit. When using OpenTable to make our reservations, I indicated it was our 35th wedding anniversary. For some reason this never made it to the restaurant. There was no attempt to make this evening special. In addition, our normally attentive waiter (whom we have had in the past) brought me soup when I ordered a salad, a glass of wine when I ordered a bottle, and was absent during most of the evening.
We will visit again. But we will never have another 35th anniversary to celebrate.
This is the absolute best restaurant in Rockford, hands down . Always our favorite!!!
