The food was really good. The apps did not disappoint. We got the calamari and a Caesar salad, which were both really good. Our table got ribeyes, tbone and the strip. They were all flavorful and cooked perfect. Would def be coming back here!

Go for the Porterhouse for 2. Overall the steaks are fantastic and the service is tops.
We were taken care of by Michael. Excellent at his job. Not my first visit. Not my last.

The food and service was outstanding, as usual. This is one of my two favorite steakhouses I’m Manhattan and I bring my close friends and best clients here. One of my luncheon companions commented that the MarkJoseph waitstaff is the most professional around the Financial District where we work.

Incredible! Great food! The best slice of bacon I've ever tasted. Great stake with bake potato. Plates are big, of you aré not a heavy eater it's better to order one and share.
They gave us a complementary house dessert. Amazing service by our waitress Diana. She was great.
I'll recommend this place to everyone

So good I went two nights in a row!

The second night I had theyummy baked clams and the bone-in sirloin. It was super! There was a couple of TV shows shooting nearby, so the place was a little noisier than usual, but not bad at all.
Great food and superior service mean you need to eat here!

Here for restaurant week. Started with the Canadian Bacon which was good and tasty. Filet was tender, season appropriately and didn't need any salt. Whipped potatoes and creamed spinach that came with it were good as well. Desert was small and perfect finish to the meal. Only reason i gave service 3 stars was our server had to come back and ask us what we ordered for our entree and then again asked after that what we ordered for dessert. Everything else was find and pleasant. I believe i like this place better than capital grill but not as good as delmonicos. Didn't try any alcohol as i was in detox mode.

Another top flight meal! This was Restaurant Week in NYC, so I was pleased that mark Jospehs participated. I had a bacon appetizer-1/2 inch thick bacon, cured so the pork shines through-an 8 oz filte done perfectly with mashed potatoes light as a cloud along with superior sauteed spinach, and some wonderful ice cream for desert. Ande great wine, finished with a super single malt Scotch. What more could you ask for?

Awesome dinner although it's the annual restaurant week menu, I would go to MarkJoseph for a 2nd or 3rd tries even if it's NOT restaurant week. The reason....Great steaks and I mean its not your typical steakhouse. Great for table for 2s and even family settings or small parties. It's tuck in a very cozy setting and area of NYC...South Street Seaport. Definitely a true neighborhood GEM. I would recommend this place to tourists and out of towners too

Absolutely amazing. 3rd time here and MarkJoseph's did not disappoint. Food was excellent, our waitress was outstanding and so kind (I believe her name was Kristin) . Their wine list is great as well. Although this restaurant is not cheap, it is worth every single penny and then some. Make sure you buy a bottle of their in-house-made steak sauce on the way out too. It's to die for. For reference we had the canadian bacon, oysters, Porterhouse for 2 cooked medium rare, with steamed asparagus and hash browns, followed by some espresso, and berries with homemade cream. To drink we had a bottle of Charles Krug '14.

*Made a reservation here for NYC Restaurant week for a party of 3, so can only base my review on that* Location on a nice cobble street (Water Street), 2 minutes away from the East river right in South Street seaport area. Seated right away and our waiter promptly asked us if we wanted anything to drink.

Dinner:

Starters: Sizzling canadian bacon was a thick cut and very delicious! Stuffed clams were also yummy (came with a few pieces).

Entree: 8 oz of Filet Mignon (asked for medium rare) which was tender and tasty. Added a few salt to give it a little more flavor. 20 oz sirloin steak was more than fulling, and took home the bone to give to my dogs haha. Both did not come that flavored but a little salt and pepper made it perfect.

Dessert: We all ordered the mini brownie sundae and it was the perfect ending to our meal.

All throughout the night, our waiter made sure our glasses were never empty. We definitely felt catered to and would highly recommend coming back!

The beef we had this visit was just not that tasty for some reason. I've been here a number of times before and have had some great steak. Our filets were not well seasoned, weren't cooked all that well, and sort of a bland flavor. In fact, we asked for bearnaise sauce to give it some flavor. We were there during restaurant week and there was a price fix special so maybe they didn't buy as high a quality meat as usual for that event? I hope not, because we paid for the filet that wasn't on the special.

Mark Joseph is always great and a great value during restaurant week. Food was great but it was a tad better when I was there two weeks ago. The steak was a little pinker and juicier and the mashed potatoes and creamed spinach were piping hot (not so the other night but still very good). Still a very good meal and a good value

Excellent steak! One recommendation is to separate the pieces of steak that come pre-sliced. Otherwise they will cook more on the plate. Our medium rare turned into more of a medium well by the time we got to the other pieces. Otherwise an excellent meal!
