Joseph's staff takes the Italian reverence for abbondanza (abundance) to heart, and won't let you walk away from your meal hungry. Pasta, chops, chicken, salad—everything on this menu bears the true taste of Italy.
The main courses at Joseph's are often accompanied by vegetables and potatoes, and there are family-style platter options available if you are ordering with a group. If "Italian food" in the Financial District conjures up thoughts of chicken parmigiana subs from a pizza place, it's time for a step into the elegance and flavor of Joseph's.
One of my favorite restaurants in all of NYC. Hidden gem.
Unbelievable service and unbelievable food. Woke up the next day still thinking about the meal. Everything was great and can't wait to try more items on the Menu. The Lobster Medallions, Buffalo Mozzarella, The Octopus all great great great. Go you won't be sorry. Thanks Astro for a evening me and my wife would forget. See you again sooner than later.
Hosted a small business lunch here. Very good service and outstanding food. Will definitely return.
Went with clients to celebrate completion of a large project. The food was amazing and the service was perfect. Couldn't have selected a better place for our celebration. Can't wait to go back.
Branzino and Carpaccio were AMAZING! Service impeccable. A new favorite for me...
Close friends and colleagues took us out for a Happy Birthday Luncheon. The presentation and cuisine were beautiful and very appetizing. I especially recommend the beet salad. Absolutely delicious and artfully presented. Everyone had a nice time. Service was very friendly and attentive. I would recommend this restaurant for a special occasion.
Always a great time and a good meal! Staff is very attentive. I've gone there for both lunches and dinners.
My family gathered for a weekend in NYC for a gala in the financial district. We were looking for authentic Italian where we could have intimate and lively private conversation, and we found it at Joseph's! They sat us at a round table corner on a Friday night and our waiter, Will, was extremely attentive yet not intrusive. We started with the most tender grilled calamari, splitting it amongst us by cutting it with a spoon. We had the veal chop, bistecca, summer squash pasta, lamb chops and gnocchi bolognese. Every dish was scrumptious. The pasta was fresh and perfectly al dente. We topped it off with a variety of desserts; the cannoli was particularly noteworthy, its sweetness so subtle. Chef Langello provides a refined dining experience where your tastebuds will dance with delight as you savor every delectable bite. I will definitely return.
Menu has changed for the worse. New chef is not inclined to remake any of the classic dishes that have been so popular and beloved at the restaurant previously. I’ve not been to an Italian restaurant before that does not serve Caesar salad. No chicken parm or chicken francese. They had no chicken breasts in the kitchen. No romaine lettuce. Orechiette with sausage and broccoli rabe is made in tomato sauce instead of garlic and oil. Hope others like, but it’s not my cup of tea anymore which is sad since I work across the street.
Unlike the “old” Joseph’s, the kitchen was not willing to accommodate simple menu changes.
Salads were fresh and flavorful, the pasta we shared was just great and the hanger steak was perfectly cooked, I cannot ask for better food and when it comes to service they really do a good job!
5 Star in all categories! Excellent Dining, ambiance, and hospitality.
Both my wife and I ordered fish, you can tell its so fresh and great cooked, our waiter was very pleasant and the manager came by couple times to make sure we were happy. We loved this place and yes we will come back!
I would rate it as ok. I was expecting old school Italian and Joseph’s wasn’t that at all. Food portions were small, the atmosphere did not feel Italian. Service was good but there were only a few people dining and a lot of staff.
My favorite Italian restaurant in wall st. The food is always delicious and the service even better. Always a pleasure to go!
Amazing food. I got the pasta with bolognese sauce, Highly recommend. The whole experience was awesome.
We were a party of five old friends getting together for a retirement dinner. They accommodated every request. Food was delicious and the staff terrific. Will definitely be back
Delicious! I have to say that I had the best octopus for a very long long time!
Dinner was great from the wine to the appetizers the waiter was super Nice and very attentive to our table, I took my friend here for her bday and she loved how cozy it was, my anniversary it’s common soon and I will definitely be there!
Delicious as always! They don’t rush you and the drinks and food were perfect! Can’t wait to go back.
As usual a very good time, good food and great service! I'd recommend this restaurant all day long
In love with the place, so happy that we discovered this neighborhood gem. Celebrated my 15th anniversary here and I was amused by the ambiance. Food was one of the best in the city and the staff made sure that I and my husband have a great night. The parpadelle pasta was delicous.
Every bite of the food was amazing, congrats to the Chief. The staff was so friendly and attentive, made us feel as home. Loved the wine selection as you have a lot of choices from different regions. Definitely will be back again and bring my other friends also.
Second time here. One of the best places to have tasty food and remarkable service.
One of the dishes recommended from the waiter was the lobster ravioli and we loved it. The ambiance it`s great and made my wife and me feel really comfortable.
Our first time here, we really enjoyed our wine, dinner, dessert and the atmosphere. The servers were very attentive. The Halibut was outstanding.
Wonderful dinner!! Tasty food ,great wine selection and we loved the service, we live in neighborhood and we consider it as a great value also, I’m just in love with their pappardelle pasta..
Had diner for the first time after our daughter made a reservation, she lives right cross the street and study on the city, she had ordered food from josephs, but it was her first time also walking in and we really liked it, we share the appetizer and we all enjoyed it, our main dishes where perfect presented and so delicious, we made a promise to take her there anytime we’re in City.
This place is a really hidden gem, been eating on so many fine dining restaurants including Italy and Josephs restaurant is my personal top five!
Great homemade pasta; had the orecchiette with broccoli rabe and sausage and the squid ink pasta w/ shrimp. And service was very good.
I don’t know why it took me so long to try this restaurant, I had such a great time with my wife and our three kids ,they loved the pastas and my pork dish was amazing, we definitely recommend this place
Great food and excellent service, all I needed to celebrate my wife’s birthday, we asked to be private because of special occasions and on a minute they set us up on this beautiful private room and made us feel really special, a great time for my wife and family .thank you Joseph’s.
From the moment we walked in we were welcomed by the most kindest staff I have seen for pretty long time, such a great staff and delicious food, right portions and reasonable prices for wall street area, the waiter seemed to know a lot about wines and his recommendation of having a bottle of Brunello made our night . The steak was perfectly medium rare cooked as we asked for and the Lobster Ravioli was outstanding , our water refilled all the time and any questions we had were answered by the waiter on such a great way. Great atmosphere I really loved it.
Impeccable service! They made us feel like a royal family:), I have never seen something like that , everyone seemed happy ,nice, friendly and sooo professional, when it comes to food, those people in kitchen they deserve a medal, from A to Z we enjoyed, in love with Joseph’s I cannot wait to go back there
Made a reservation ten minutes before going there and they gave us a nice round table, attentive staff, and our food came quickly and delicious, I'm so happy my office is nearby
This is my second time that i come to Joseph's Restaurant, it was so great, The steak was perfectly medium rare cooked as we asked for. Such a great staff and delicious food.
Where do i even begin! Talking for this place is a nonsense till you visit it! That mussels dish, and a beet salad as an appetizers that we had and the lamb chops, let me tell you i have been eating all over for years but this place got my heart, and when it comes to service an A+ to all those guys, well done!!!
Was a Wednesday night when my wife and I reserved a table for two on this restaurant, after we just walked in we got so impressed by this bar area so we decided to just have dinner on bar( me and my wife are more bar drinking people), that hand painted sealing, that white bar and those lights with a warm ambiance got even better when the bartender served us and started a conversation, she was so professional made us a couple delicious moscowMules we just couldn’t stop drinking, when asked for menus and recommendations she said to go all in for octopus and branzino, just a simply big WOW , soo tender octopus with a nice presentation and than a branzinos.. i have never seen such a better filet of branzino and such presentation,not even one bone even that my wife was afraid to order it since she hates those small bones, amazing food amazing place!!!!
I had diner before on restaurants on financial District but never like this one in Joseph’s! all i can say is a big well done to everyone who works there, from the metrodie to the server they were all so nice and friendly,amazing food ,that gnocchi dish was a different level. So good i just wanna go back there every day.
I walked in Joseph’s after 2 years working on the area, according to the reviews i decide that me and my girlfriend we’ll spend a dinner there. The server told me that the place is renewed couple years ago and recently they got a new chef, i really don’t know how place was before , but right now this place, is MY place! We just loved it, lovely food and smooth service, even the owner approached the table and asked about our night. I will definitely go back there with friends and family.
My new favorite restaurant. The service and food were excellent.
The food was amazing and the service was great. We were in and out in an hour and were able to return to the office on time.
