This has been one of the best restaurants in Indy. It sad to see them close but it will be interesting to see what comes next from all the greats people there.

We had such a fabulous evening. Great staff, music was wonderful, food was good. I really hate to see this restaurant close. It has a personal touch that is obvious from the minute you walk in the door that very few restaurants have. I wish you all well as you start new endeavors.

We enjoyed Chef Joseph"s a lot and were looking forward to returning. Unfortunately, the waiter told us the restaurant would be closing its doors on Dec. 31st.

Our dinner club always plans a get-together at a restaurant to celebrate the holidays. We picked this location due to the food choices and music. We appreciated that the noise level was not so high that we could not have an easy conversation. We particularly liked the endless champagne and bloody Mary’s!

We went to celebrate my friend’s birthday. The brunch was great! I highly recommend doing the endless bloody Mary’s or champagne - only $15 with purchase of an entree.
