The staff, food, and ownership is impeccable. Quite possibly Delray’s best kept secret.

3 of us shared 3 small plates, Each presented beautifully, tasty, and made by their mother.Then we decided to have coffee and share a dessert. The Lemoncello cake was delicious and made by their mother. This was a pre-show place to eat, for us. The young lady and her brother were very gracious.

We always enjoy Josephs because the wine list is robust and the food delicious. I also like a restaurant where the owner greets me at the door, his daughter tells us the specials that her mom made up, and his son takes our orders. I enjoyed my perfectly cooked salmon and they split up a good sized caprese for us as an appetizer, either half was plenty. Always good food, reasonable wine pricing and a comfortable, intimate atmosphere. We will always include Josephs in our rotation of "go-to" restaurants in the Delray Beach area, which are numerous.

The restaurant is run and family owned. Joseph and his daughter and son. They are wonderful people and made sure we were happy. I had the duck special and my husband had the salmon which were both very good. My only complaint was the noise level. The table next to us were screaming so loud I wanted to join the conversation. The wine selection is great and the fresh bread and olive oil were yummy. Joseph kept coming over to the table to apologize for the wait for our food and bought us drinks.

Food was very good, however my Mom did not like the service. At first the service was welcoming & charming. We ordered wine right a way, asked questions and wanted to order apps 1st. We were told we need to order right away because they needed the table for a second seating. The spinach tarts were outstanding, the greek salad.Tuna was good, but was really sashimi & seaweed salad with ginger, not particularly inspired, as we were led to believe. My mom liked the chicken. bread was good and my mom asked 2 x for more bread and never received it. She is older and won't go back or recommend because of that. My friend and I may go back. Also noted on open table that it was mom's bday. No recognition of the event.

We are so glad we chose to eat at Joseph's. It was a lovely night and we ate outside on a quiet street. The service was very attentive and Joseph personally checked in with us throughout the meal. He suggested we try a white Bordeaux with our meal, something we had never tried before. We tasted it, then ordered a bottle. We have a new favorite! The food was as special as the wine. The dinner was very moderately priced. We will definitely be back and recommend to others.

We would have enjoyed this more had we been made more welcome. When I arrived I was told that there was no availability inside and that we had to sit outside which on most nights would not have been awful -- but it was one of those colder December evenings. Luckily, we were dressed appropriately. This place is too small to accommodate anyone unless you know in advance to request/insist on indoors when you make your reservation. They have neither a cooling mechanism nor a heating mechanism outside.
Other than that, the waitress was pleasant, the service timing was excellent and the food was delicious.
