Joseph's Wine Bar & Cafe
A neighborhood gem! Loved everything about Joseph's. Went on recommendation and so glad we did. We were greeted warmly by Joseph and seated right away. His son was extremely knowledgeable about all the wines and gave great advice for pairings. We had the Mediterranean Turnover which was delicious, the lamb chops, which were as good as my friend said and the steak special. Did not disappoint. Will go back for sure.
This place is a great local find! Food is excellent. Escargots like I've never had before and their duck is superb. We've been back 3 or 4 times and have tried different items on the menu and they're all superb. Most of all, Romi, the hostess and daughter of the owner makes the experience special. She's charming, knows her wines, recognized us the second time we went, and remembered our names (somehow) and treated us as though we were regulars. Which, of course, is the hallmark of a great local establishment..where everybody knows your name. It's our new "go to" at least once a week.
From the moment we were warmly greeted at the door by Joseph’s daughter, to the great drinks made for us by Joseph’s daughter, to the wonderful meal and conversation provided by Joseph himself, we felt like we were invited for fine dining at a friend’s home.
Wonderful experience again, family run cafe, great service and food
The service and food at Joseph’s is always outstanding. They go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Ellie, the son always makes a point of greeting us by name, and helped me with the menu choice, as I am diabetic.
everything was good except the salmon was overdone
Wonderful. The restaurant is a family owned and operated business. During our dinner we meet them all, and it was the most refreshing experience I have had dining in a long time.
A wonderful small restaurant with great Lebanese cuisine. Superb wine list.
Family run excellent restaurant!!!
Love to dine here. Always excellent quality food cooked by the owner's wife who is not only an excellent chef but creates and makes all of the divine desserts. Cordial, friendly (not stuff like other upscale restaurants), moderately priced for the area. Consistently a great dining experience!
We have not been to Joseph’s in five years. we are back to stay! what a fabulous meal and genuine family service.
Great as usual...Family makes you feel at home and part of theirs!!!
Great wine list and one of the best Manhattan drinks ever made!
We vacation in the Delray area the past two years and this was our third time at Joseph's and we have never been disappointed. Located in the Pineapple Grove area of Delray away from the crowded Atlantic Avenue, it is a family-run restaurant - Joseph greets people, his son and daughter are the servers and his wife in the kitchen -- and it shows in the ambience and attention to detail. The menu is a mixture of Mediterranean and other cuisines and we have not had a bad dish yet. Highly recommend the grape leaves and greek salad for appetizers. My wife had the sashimi tuna which was amazing and I had the salmon which was cooked in a light crust which I usually do not like but this was delicious. We skipped desserts so I can't comment but we did have cappuccinos which were excellent.
We had a great time at Joseph's. It is a small and intimate place, the service is outstanding, the food excellent. They were accommodating to my dietary needs, and the tuna sashimi was a very generous portion. We will definitely return.
Huge surprise. Friendly, family run and everything was delicious.
Great spot for a memorable meal. Excellent service and food.
Superb meal. No false steps. Flawless. Home cooking meets haute cuisine. Great wines and great recommendations for pairings. Joseph the owner host is warm and welcoming. His wife the chef and the staff prepare, present and serve delicious meals.
The best rack of lamb tuna duck
Secret of delray
Wonderful meal, the service was great and the atmosphere cozy and inviting
I have been to Joseph’s Wine Bar several times over the past few years. The ambiance is is just lovely. The food is really the best that I have eaten in Delray. The service is warm, personable and engaging. It’s a family run business and each family member seems invested in making sure you come back. My dinner was finger licking good from beginning to end. Bravo to Joseph and his family for his standout dining experience! I can’t wait to go back.
Like every visit to Joseph's Wine Bar & Cafe it was again very good food, pleasant service and had a good time. The owners are lovely people.
Excellent steak au poivre. Terrific tiramisu. Excellent wine list. Very warm and friendly atmosphere.
Terrific food,staff,chefs.Every detail of a dining experience was thoughtfully taken care of.The knowledge of their food and beverages was outstanding.
Just Terrific here. From start to finish. One of the best meals around!
Whenever we return to Delray the first restaurant we go to is Joseph's. The food is always wonderful. Service is excellent. You feel like you are visiting family. There is an amazing wine selection.
Canceled our hard to get reservation to Buccan to join Joseph and his family with our friends...and we were not disappointed. We’ve been walking by Joseph’s for many years, every time saying the same thing: we should stop by and check it out. We did and would like to hope that there will be a table for us when we return. Wine list is good, but the most impressive was the bartender. He didn’t have exact ingredients for one of our favorite and somewhat common cocktail. He asked a couple of questions. He listened. He understood and ...created a perfect new favorite! We asked him to repeat and he did. Food was delicious from the Mediterranean platter and other shareables to one of the ducks that I ever had. We were in a companyod a professional chef with engineering degree in food preparation and his own amazing creations. Even he admitted (and I concur since I was allowed to try) that Joseph’s rack of lamb deserves the highest marks. Even boring salmon was so good that it was not offered by one of us to share with others...not even a little taste...very suspicious or simply that well prepared. Overall a menu where chef doesn’t over think but executes everything to perfection.
This is a lovely place which features a nice wine and cocktail selection and serves a nice array of food choices. The owners are great and the outdoor street seating is great for South Florida. A definite cool locale.
Wonderful family dedicated to great food and outstanding service!
Amazing as always!
We have been following the success of this family-owned business for about years. They are a Lebanese family who deliver delicious food night after night. We brought friends who had never been who live in Boynton. It was a lovely night for sitting outside! We each had something different. The daughter is adorable and knowledgable! Our friend was so impressed that there was no TV at the wine bar itself. Conversation is not dead!
This restaurant never disappoints. Service is warm and friendly. Food is beyond outstanding. A total must when visiting Delray.
third or fourth time at Joseph's . Always great. Kind of place you want to make a regular habit of, so many great menu items and specials!! family run , they make you feel like family...
Joseph's was on my list of restaurants to try. I made a last minute reservation, however, when we got there and saw the place so full, I was surprised we were able to get a table. Not wanting to sit outside right on the street, we decided to sit at the bar which was a great decision. This is a family owned business and behind the bar were the son and daughter. Both were working amazingly hard as was their Dad who was doing some of everything. The drinks were excellent, the food was outstanding, and the personality of the owners was wonderful. Great attitude toward the customers. This was our first time at Joseph's and we were made to feel very comfortable. We love to see a family working together successfully and we are looking forward to our next visit.
This family owned restaurant was absolutely adorable inside and had incredible ambiance with a wall of wine and classy chandeliers. Their wine list is immaculate and the food was divine. The service was great and the owner is incredibly personable. Overall amazing experience.
This is a friendly family owned restaurant serving great food with a Mediterranean twist. The owner and family could not be friendlier. We were debating whether to try the humus as a starter, but ordered something different. Joseph overheard our conversation and brought us the humus to try. That attention to customer satisfaction is a trade mark of Joseph’s. We’ll definitely be back.
Really nice family run business. Food was delicious. A real nice experience
Excellent food and excellent service. Very impresssive wine list and wall bar rack. The owner ,Joseph, personally greats each guest and checks in on your dining experience. The tuna, duck and swordfish were delicious. Highly recommend it!!
Great food, service and a nice wine list at all price points. Makes a good manhattan
