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.
service is slow, didn't get food until an hour and half in, if you have a long lunch break, this works
Very good food! Excellent services.
Great service throughout the evening.
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.
Had lunch there for NYC restaurant week. The drinks were good and the food was very tasty. Would go again.
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!
Very traditional place and great service. Food is ok was not impressed with the apps nor the special half moon ravioli.
Very new to the neighborhood and going to be a consistent one for me. Really enjoyed this Italian
Servers were not attentive and taking time for everything.
Good food but a little pricey for the smaller portions
Takes lot of time to serve
Excellent food, great service, wonderful ambience. This place is a real gem
in the financial district!
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.
Went to Joseph's for dinner during restaurant week and it was amazing. The old school Italian feel is awesome, the service was impeccable, the food absolutely delicious!
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.
The food and service is consistent and my go to for FiDi Italian. It’s always a pleasure.
Authentic, fresh Italian food. Friendly and attentive service, great ambience and not noisy at all on a busy Friday night
Excellent Restaurant Week menu.
Lots of options.
We had a party of six and everyone loves thier meals.
Our waiter was knowledgeable and lots of fun. !
Staffs were very friendly and polite. There were multiple entree choices from restaurant week menu. The food had large portion and delicious. Service was great. Will come back again. Thanks for the bonus appetizer. Restaurant was quiet and pleasant. It is great for couple as well as corporate gathering.
Wonderful food, service and atmosphere. And am especially great deal during restaurant week.
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!
Lunch took forever to come out. Reason given was ridiculous.
The food was scrumptious! A bit pricey but perfect for a special occasion. The staff were extremely pleasant.
Professional and attentive service, exquisite ambience, outstanding food. Always a winner!
Impeccable service and food. We had the chefs table and everything was delicious. Will definitely go back.
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.
Great food great service, they came and found us because we got lost, we are from out of town.
The food and and the staff is wonderful. I have eaten at Joseph's multiple times and highly recommend it.
Great business lunch. Understand the apricot grappa was excellent. One thing menu can’t be amended.
Disappointing. Lackluster food and service. Cannot recommend.
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..
Have returned, food and service very good, a reliable spot.
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...
