It took a bit for our server to come to the table, but the quality of food and service combined created quite the experience. The food was delicious, hefty portions and refills without having to even lookup or as for them. The server made sure that we were well taken care of. We will be back soon.

Still a great experience, though the food took a while to come out for rare steaks. Been here enough to know that's not the norm. This is a go to spot for me.

First time experience and not impressed! I ordered salmon with broccoli with sweet potato fries. No sauces or anything for the fish, or broccoli but ketchup was provided. I am not sure if I would go back to this restaurant!

A wonderful surprise! After a long day of travel we had a delicious dinner. We expected good but it was sensational! Our server Jasmine was efficient, helpful and very nice. We loved her! My husband’s chicken piccata was perfect and my scallops with rosemary skewers were out of this world! Loved the couscous part of the dish. We dine out often, especially in theNew York area. This meal was one of the best ever! We will search out “joe’s” from now on. Hope they come to NJ!

Made a reservation, ..but despite tables being open we were seated at a table in the bar section. It was too loud. Probably would be better to not do that when people have a reservation. However our waiter was great.

We eat here for lunch every week and always have a great dining experience.
The mustard crusted chicken and the wedge salad are among my favorites on the widely varied menu.

We had made a reservation given it was a Friday night, and arrived right on time. When we checked in with the host we were told there was a wait. Which is curious, given we made a reservation. But we weren’t in a hurry so waited, about 10-15 min later we were told we could have a table someone else didn’t want because it wasn’t a booth.

We were impressed to find a lovely, reasonably priced, bottle of champagne on the menu. Our server, who was very nice and attentive, had a hard time finding the bottle, and then the bartender and two other servers had difficulty opening it. The experience was slightly diminished (maybe a general bottle opening refresher for the staff?), but we did enjoy the champagne, and the menu item our server recommended!

I've been several times. Nice variety in the menu. I'd rate it better than average but short of great. Love it when they do specials (often). Some tasty cocktails too.

Good Afternoon Mr. Flanagan,
I wanted to write to someone who may be more interested in my feedback than the local store. We have been going to Joe’s since it opened. It was always our go to spot and we would always recommend it to family and friends. Over the last few months I have noticed a shift in service and food quality. I am a list person so I will list my observations:
- I did not get my birthday coupon so I reached out to Joe’s. You can see from the email below that I did get the coupon but with a very unprofessional almost condescending tone.
- I used the coupon after the new year so thank your company for that
- my husband I visited Joe’s on 2/8/19 and the food was par and the service was terrible. The waitress seemed bothered and we had to flag her down to get our check. The flavored tea was murky so we switched to another flavor and it was still the same. She never asked for our feedback and just switched the teas without any real concern. I know it is not life or death but it is her business to communicate in case there was a serious problem.
- every month or every other month my friend and I make a reservation via Open Table to attend happy hour. It is normally a great time with fantastic service. Last night, 2/23/19 was not the case. The server was polite but no sense of concern or urgency. The bread came out hard as a rock. I asked her if I could have some warm bread and she stated that it is cooked fresh daily but it never comes warm. I know that not to be true because I have lucked up one time to get it warm. I told her ok since there was no need to debate and asked her for more bread because it was hard. When she came back, the bread was clearly hard as a rock and had been toasted. I let that go as to not ruin the evening. We ordered the wings and they came out extremely salty. The waitress stated that back in December they started to brine the wings and they get constant complaints about the wings and she would not recommend them to anyone.

We went for Valentine’s Day, we ordered drinks with Jose Cuervo tequila, they didn’t have that tequila. Just two, Sauza and Patron. Then, when we got the check, the waiter brought a box with chocolates and said to my partner, “here is a box of chocolates, since you are the one that paid.” - so unprofessional - Food and service at the bar was outstanding but that waiter, not so good.
