Italian
Joseph's refined style and atmosphere make it a popular spot for business lunches, as well as Downtown classic. But don't let the fancy setting fool you—behind all the elegance is an excellent and authentic Italian kitchen that churns out rustic dishes reminiscent of the old country.

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.

    What a great way to spend an afternoon with lunch at Joseph's. It was a nice find our first visit but not our last. From the outside it looks like a small store front but enter into the doors and make your way downstairs into a fine dinning room filled with beautiful tables, welcoming staff, and amazing food. We selected from the pre-fix menu all wonderful choices and do not skip dessert. The bartender was on point with our drinks and the waitstaff was attentive and not intrusive. A great place to have a business lunch or to be with friends for a meal. We didn't feel rushed.

    Food was excellent! Arugula and portobello salad, rigatoni vodka sauce, and fettuccine cacio e pepe. It is a shame that they seemed a bit understaffed, but we know it's universally tough hiring service staff now.

    Had dinner for the first time there. Thank goodness it wasn’t in the street. We couldn’t find the restaurant and Lind who was the maitre d went and found us just outside the restaurant. He and Juan our server were excellent. We had delicious food and wine. My husband loved the veal chop which was prepared exactly the way he asked. I had crispy sea bass which was amazing. We didn’t have to wait. Would definitely go there again and will highly recommend this restaurant to our friends.

    My favorite Italian Restaurant to Manhattan. The food was excellent; the veal saltamboca was saw good you di not even need a knife; service terrific and as always, I felt like I was in Italy. I was catching up with long time friends and the servers realized it and went out of their way to make us comfortable and did not rush us at all. I can't wait for another visit.

    What a nice surprise, and thanks to Restaurant Week, I tried a new place (i.e. Joseph's). It's lovely and the food and service were excellent, and they had great choices for the restaurant week menu. I'll definitely go back, whether for lunch, drinks (they have a nice bar, from what I could tell), or dinner.

    Went on a Wednesday so, that could explain the noise level being low. The restaurant was lovely the staff was amazing. The location was a downside for me, I don’t work or live near the financial district, the area is not always easy to navigate but, I do recommend taking a trip to this place.

    A group of us serve on a not-for-profit Board and were in New York for meetings. I decided to make a reservation at Joseph’s for dinner one evening. From the welcome to the recommendations for dinner, service was outstanding! Warmly welcomed. Seated right away. I had pre-requested separate checks and was told “not a problem”. We enjoyed a leisurely dinner with appetizers, wine and some dessert. A friend and her shared the mixed green salad (which they split into 2 plates) and the Bronzino (again on 2 plates) with a side of grilled vegetables- cooked to perfection! Another friend had the halibut and enjoyed every bite. For dessert we shared the cannoli and the tiramisu- Wow! GET THE CANNOLI!! True Italian cooking. Outstanding service! From the first bite to the last - everything was great!

    Joseph’s is a First Class Experience across the board. The service is warm and friendly, yet everything was meticulously served. Everyone from the Maitre’D to the bus boy. The food was amazing. All ingredients were fresh and Delicious. All the pasta is home made and as light as air. The space is beautiful and ambience special There is a full bar with whatever you wish and the prices are on point. My Mom was treated like a Queen on her birthday. Thank you to everyone at Joseph’s.

    I visited Josephs a few days ago with my family of 10 to celebrate my daughter’s engagement party. We received 5* treatment since the moment I booked our table right to the end of our meal.. The food was absolutely delicious, not the usual lasagna and carbonara menu you find in many italian restaurants. Our special thanks to Benny for organising a celebration cake to mark the occasion. Service was brilliant, very attentive and friendly staff. I can highly recommend Josephs and will definitely be back whenever I travel back to NY. Thank you.
