Perfectly cooked steaks and a varied choice of sides served in a cozy atmosphere. Waiters were very attentive and they all sang happy birthday to my teenage son. Was my first visit and we plan to go again.

Our steaks were cooked to perfection. Hash browns and creamed spinach were delicious. Our waitress Diana suggested the seasame tuna as an appetizer and the Bordeaux to drink, both were great. We'll definitely be back.

Took a client group for a Holiday lunch. Arrived at 1205 pm - the first or second table seated for lunch. Did not leave until 245 due to abysmally slow kitchen. A manager never came over to explain or apologize. At least 6 tables who came after us were served well before us. Food is good but service is as bad as it gets. It will be a long time for me to try this place again.

Our first visit to Mark Joseph was very good but not great. Steaks did not have much flavor but were excellent cuts and cooked perfectly. Hash browns were very good. We liked our waiter but a little slow. Would not make a point to eat there unless we were in the area of Financial District.

Nothing to write home about. Mediocre steak and overpriced. Steak wasn’t even seasoned. What’s with the ridiculous steak sauce? Tastes like a Chinese sweet and sour sauce.

Simply WOW. Time after time after time - Mark Joseph is my go to steakhouse. The meat quality is always top notch - the servers KNOW what they are talking about when they explain the menu's fine points. They have all the usual steakhouse enjoyables - and are priced fairly and the portions are extremely generous. You do NOT leave here hungry and you do not leave here feeling like you missed something. Had a Tomahawk Rib-eye last night ! Totally love this spot - which is a gem in the neighborhood. Love where it is - love the cobblestone. Love how authentic it is. It's just so wonderful - please try it!

When paying $50-$80 for a steak, I do expect receiving the meat as ordered and of top quality (juicy and tender). However, the meat was poor quality, the veggies overcooked and the hash browns like from a fast food restaurant. It's not worth the money.
