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.

    I recently hosted a business lunch for 10 people at Joseph's and it was perfect. The restaurant was clean and beautiful, the ambiance was perfect, the service was outstanding and the food was superb. Also to note that I am vegan (the rest of my party is not) and it was so easy for them to accommodate my dietary restriction with food that was amazing, beautiful, and so tasty. I will would recommend Joseph's to anyone looking for an outstanding experience.

    A popular dining place for weekdays, the vibe is quite old-fashioned and formal. The food is good, but I wouldn't say it's outstanding base on price. Service is very great and professional.

    This is not an Italian restaurant. Friday evening it was empty which should signaled that something is wrong. The order was mixed up, food was a disaster. Chef is not Italian. Would never ever visit it again.

    A memorably good dinner! The setting was lovely, the service excellent, and the food outstanding. The Caesar salad was fresh, and the chicken parm and ‘grandma’ pasta with meatballs were out of this world! It was actually hard to choose, as the menu was broad, and many dishes looked wonderful—guess we’ll have to return and try them all!

    CHECK YOUR CHECK!! An overall excellent evening was ruined when reviewing the check and found a credit card fee buried in the charges. No mention anywhere prior to receiving check. It was removed after complaining, “owner says we have to do this”.

    Nice business lunch option in FiDi if you don't want to go to a "banker steakhouse." Service is good and fast. The room is busy but can still have conversations without shouting. Good value for the pre-fix lunch.

    Was let down by the overall experience. The bartenders were extremely slow and the bar wasn’t busy. The beers weren’t very cold either. When we went to our seats, we were the only ones in the room which was nice but the music wasn’t working so it was eerily quiet even for a group of 9 people. In fact it was turning on and off randomly and was quite annoying. The waitstaff was very attentive and the food was actually very good. Everyone finished what was on their plate which is a good sign.

    Very solid good and very good service. It is a bit of an odd atmosphere, as the bar feels clubby but the dining room feels like a classic Italian-American resturant, but the food is very good and I do recommend for a solid dinner.

    Service was attentive as long as you don’t ask the bus boy a question that should be asked to the waiter. Food was meh. Pasta was well cooked and the sauce was very good but the meatballs were inedible. That was the general consensus of the table. Service team offered to bring out another dish but we declined. Complimentary dessert helped soften the tough meatballs.

    Terrific location. Very attentive service. Food was average to poor. They need a new chef. The place was empty on a Friday night. What a shock!
