    We were greeted and seated right away even though we were a bit early for our reservation. Our waitress was friendly and took our drink orders right away. The food, drinks, and atmosphere were great. The only thing is that they may have been a bit short-staffed because it took a while to get our check. Not a big deal because we left plenty of time to make it to the event we were going to. Plus, every restaurant seems to be short-staffed these days. I will definitely recommend and go back.

    We were stuck in traffic and were going to be more than 1/2 hour late for our reservation. We called and they were so nice to move our reservation around without issue. Our waitress was excellent - helpful with selections and descriptions of the menu options. The food came out quickly and was HOT. Everything was really good. We had the brussels sprouts appetizer and they were excellent. My wife had the ribs and they were meaty and tasty. Best ribs she has had in a while!. I had the quinoa bowl with steak tips - really good.

    Took my friend and her son (my Godson) to Joe's while they were on a 5 hour layover from Logan Airport. I live in the Back Bay so Joe's is a great go to place for me for not only eat-in but takeout. We had a terrific experience yesterday with Peter as our server. The staff overall were great as I had requested to sit at the high top tables near the bar to have a lively experience and be near the windows on Newbury Street. They didn't disappoint. Peter was a top notch server, attentive, helpful and delightful! We all had delicious meals. My Godson had the lobster roll and French fries, lots of lobster chunks and a great dressing on it. My friend had the ahi tuna salad with avocado and she said it was amazing. I had the Caesar Salad with salmon and the portions, as always, are plentiful and the salmon was cooked just right. My friends also had the crispy brussels sprouts appetizer and they could not say enough about how delicious it was. Great dining experience. Thanks!

    Joe’s On Newbury is our go to spot in Boston ! This was a post-Thanksgiving dinner for six. Service was great and my martini hit the spot! The wine drinkers enjoyed St. Michele Chardonnay and the two minors had tasty lemon. The salmon was well prepared and presented with mashed potato graciously substituted for asparagus. Three enjoyed shrimp scampi, one steak tips and I had the signature meatloaf! Dessert is always a tough decision but we went with chocolate cake and bread pudding with multiple forks. A wonderful time!

    I was scheduled to layover in Boston on Thanksgiving. Once I knew how many of us there’d be, I started looking was very happy to find a place that was serving Turkey on Thanksgiving. The food was good, the service was great, and we made the best of our Thanksgiving away from home.

    I totally get that it was a holiday and the place was busy but our service was poor. Had to ask another server to find our server. We would have ordered another round of cocktails but he never came back. We will be back as the food was amazing. Great options for both Thanksgiving and the regular menu.

    Joe's on Newbury is an excellent spot for Thanksgiving dinner with Durgin Park up in the Quincy Market area of Boston going out of business a few years ago. The turkey dinner, at $39, is not cheap, but you do expect to splurge a little bit for Thanksgiving. For $39, you get turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potato, and butternut squash in a very good portion.

    Two friends getting together for lunch - Joe’s staff were great from the folks who checked us in (we had reservations) to our server and his assistant. Food was delicious- clam chowder and fish & chips, and a burger - all prepared according to request and all scrumptious. We finished up with the skillet pan chocolate chip cookie and ice cream! We will be back!

    Joe's should not be offering breakfast when they have no black tea, no milk alternatives, and no hot cereal. I drank frozen orange juice, ate soggy toast, and left early to go to Starbucks.

    With a reservation, hoped for a better table than the first one next to the front door. Every new diner has to come upon that table before peeling off. Food was good to very good. Grace, our server, was very good, although the system there makes it so she didn’t have to interact with us much. Good place, no hurry to return.
