The eggplant was 5 inches tall. Delicious. Couldn’t finish. Anthony waiter chased me into parking lot with my leftover! Who does that anymore! Little pricey but then again it’s Nyack. Definitely give it a try, our third time there & we will be back.

Spicy shrimp appy along with baked clams were to die for! Good looking young pizza guy 😜 was able to customize my thinny thin crust margherita to perfection. Owner asks customers about their experience. Staff are eager to answer questions & if unsure will check with chef. No guess work. Definitely give it a try.!

We dined at Joe & Joe for Christmas Eve dinner. Normally, our family celebrates Christmas Eve at home so I was skeptical, but Joe and Joe’s made us feel like home. Very welcoming and service was excellent. Food was exceptional!

My salmon was $25.00. It was served on a small plate, and it was over cooked. I asked for medium rare.

The noise was ridiculous, there was a party in the back room. I wasn’t sure if I was at a night club or a restaurant.

Waiter was nice.

The wait time between courses was longer than it should have been. They “lost” one of our entrees and comped us with dessert on the house for our troubles. Food was very tasty, and the menu featured many options for vegetarians, including Beyond products.

Tried Joe & Joe's during Hudson Valley Restaurant week. Loved it! The owner, Anthony, sat us and was so friendly and welcoming. Told us his whole history. Felt like we knew him for years! Food was excellent. Had the Arancini and Burrata Salad for appetizers. The Burrata was so fresh and tasty. Arancini were crispy and cheesy and the marinara sauce was excellent. For dinner, we had the Stuffed Shrimp ala Anthony and the Chicken with Broccoli Rabe. The shrimp was absolutely delicous and literal stuffed with a piece of prosciutto (no breadcrumbs) in a scrumptious creamy mushroom wine sauce. So good! The potato croquette was very good as well. The chicken breast was delicious and served with spicy broccoli rabe and cauliflower mashed potatoes. For desert I had the Italian Lava cake, which was just okay, not really a "lava" cake, more like a chocolate cake with chocolate "mousse" and whipped cream. My husband had the pumpkin cheesecake which was really creamy and appropriate for this time of year. Anthony let us try 2 slices of their pizza. It was delicious and we will definitely be returning to try their pizza! It's thin crust make with the finest Italian flour and cheeses. Felt like I was back in Italy. They have a few different varieties of pizza on the menu. Can't wait to try them! Their regular menu had a nice variety of some classics and some unique choices. That's what we like. Something for everyone! Overall, a great experience and can't wait to return to try other things on the menu!!! May be my new favorite restaurant in Nyack!!

Ample parking...Delicious food and scrumptious Martini menu, but the thing that puts Joe & Joe's ahead of the rest is the ambiance...the warmth and friendliness of the host and waiting staff. We had a wonderful first visit and will definitely be returning!

The entrees were just ok, nothing special. Neither my husband or I were thrilled with our selection. He had the lasagna and I had the stuffed shrimp. The sauteed fresh vegetables that were served with the shrimp dish was excellent and tasty however. Service was excellent.

1st visit there, we sat outside b/c it was beautiful, but there were not enough servers outside even though it was a quiet Sunday night outside, the inside was busier. The food was very good, we will definitely go back again but when the patio begins to get more crowded, additional servers should be sent out there.

It was lovely eating outside on the patio. Plenty of parking. My seafood fra Diablo had plenty of excellent shrimp and clams. It was topped off with fried calamari an unusual touch. Only problem was the sauce was kind of bland. My wife’s meatball parmigiana (excellent) in marinara was much tastier. Overall a good experience.

Food was good, waiter was trying but it was packed and food took a while to come. Loud and difficult to have a conversation.
I do think I would still go back and see if it's better on a slower night. I love the food, interesting menu and all was tasty. (A bit pricey but still worth it)

Can't wait to go back. We always visit our Nyack friend and make a point of dining at Joe and Joe. Best calamari ever and the pizzas are the best. Great service by Kaitlin and we wish there was a Joe and Joe near our home on Long Island !!
