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 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.

Located in the financial district, this fine restaurant is very much worth the trip. Restaurant Week is an incredible value, but the quality of the food and service makes a visit worthwhile even at the relatively high price.

Joseph’s is my favorite restaurant in the Financial District. I travel to NYC weekly and have dinner here - either on my own or with co-workers - at least twice per month. Everything on the menu is fantastic and authentic. Pasta is made fresh daily. The food if amazing and the staff makes you feel at home.
This is restaurant week in NYC and Joseph’s participates. They do not skimp on portion sizes for their restaurant week menu like some others do. Love this place!

I gave Joseph’s a five star rating for their service and quality only because that is the maximum that you can provide. We were recommended to Joseph’s by a friend we met in the hotel lobby. Joseph’s served one of the best meals we have had in New York. Attention to every detail and never an empty glass on the table.
Thanks
