Rob was our waiter. He was awesome! When there was a small problem with our order, he was REALLY quick to fix it. The food was really, really, really good. I had the special surf and turf and my wife had the lamb. Sooo good! Both meals were really great. The sides are family style, but we were happy that they were smaller family style and not L size family style. Was still enough left over to take home. The lobster was so tasty and fresh. The steak was sizzling medium rare when it came out. Plates were really hot to touch. We love that! Mash, creamed spinach/mushrooms, cobb salad all super good. Wine was great, a Barossa, and not terribly expensive. We love our first time there. Cant wait to go again.

Ambiance was very nice. It’s our first time here with my family. Hostess greeted us when we got in. Showed us our table. Then waiter came right away. He was very friendly and told us all the specials and what not. Food was all hot and it came all the same time. Our steak is cook so perfect first time. Just one clause was the mushroom. I think they put too much wine in it. That’s all you taste. But overall I gave it a 10.

Reservations made via Open Table was quick and easy. I appreciate the text message confirmation. We arrived early to Little Joeʻs and the hostess was able to accommodate our early arrival. We were served bread immediately (amazing). The drinks were great. We ordered appetizers (fried zucchini, ahi katsu, and bruschetta), entrees (rack of lamb and snow crabs) and enjoyed a dessert (creme brulee) - all of the items were super good. This was my second time there and I hope to be back for other gatherings and celebrations.

Food was excellent, waiter Derek very good service. This part is just my opinion. Music level was kind of loud and more towards the Millennial crowd. Maybe pop in a few smooth jazz numbers in between for a more chill vibe. Mahalo

It was pleasant and the staff were helpful and available when we needed something. I liked the ambiance as it was informal but had a feeling of being in a formal dining restaurant. The only thing we noticed was that the bar area was quite small. As we may plan to just do a walk in on some occasions and we're a little worried that the bar area might fill up fast due to limited seating.

This was our second visit to Little Joe’s. It was as good or better than our very first visit. We had the surf and turf fillet and lobster, the mushrooms and spinach, and the chop salad, we also had a delightful pineapple upside down cake for dessert I highly recommend this restaurant because in both visits the food was consistently good and the service was very kind and attentive.

Overall a good restaurant except for the music. If you arrive when the restaurant is already full, the noise drowns out the music. If the restaurant is not full, the music is extremely loud and they will not turn it down. We mentioned to our waiter about the loud music and was told that is how management wants it despite numerous complaints by customers. Why wouldn’t you listen to your customers?

Little Joe's is an attractive restaurant right on Nimitz Highway. It is a steak house and does serve fish, lamb. shellfish. I found it to be pricey. Everything is a la carte - so your dinner gets pricey very quickly. My surf n turf was cooked just right. My grandson's rib eye was overcooked for the medium rare request. The sides were all right but not outstanding. The best thing was the hot dinner rolls which come from Liliha Bakery which is next door. Not sure if the food matches the prices - not really. So I would tell a friend what I have written above and would not probably recommend it. The service was very good here.

Service from Yihui was great. Food was good. Lighting a little too dark for me personally, but over all nice ambiance. The 5 year old was looking forward to the Bacon Mac & Cheese, but he did not like the bacon taste. I enjoyed the mac & cheese, the 5 year old loved the garlic fries.

Appetizers were not up to A Steakhouse level.
Dinner roll was just that. Resembled a loves bakery roll.
Steak was cooked well. Kind of hard to screw up a tenderloin.
Didn't try any dessert

We made reservations for my friend’s birthday. They were very accommodating and were still able to sit near friends but still be distanced and away from other parties. The food was good but the drinks? Even better! Service was great and our party was fortunate to receive crème brûlée, enough for all of us.

I'm torn! I think Little Joe's Steakhouse hits it's stated goals pretty well "to offer Honolulu residents and visitors a cut-above steakhouse experience with an exceptional menu and outstanding service at a reasonable price." It's definitely a cut-above other fast-casual restaurants in both food quality and ambiance and the pricing is reasonable for the quality of the food. That said, I'm struggling to find the appropriate niche for this restaurant. We went to celebrate my wife's birthday and it was maybe a cut-below a splurge-worthy birthday dinner but it's a tad pricy for just a regular date night or there are other restaurants in this price range that are better food/date night options. I think the problem with steak is you can make a great steak at home for a lot less. We're willing to pay steakhouse prices because it's hard to age steak at home or get the searing hot temperatures of a commercial oven. But for the quality at this price point, I'm a little undecided if I'd go back again. I think I'd tag this a more affordable Ruth's Chris steakhouse.

This was probably the best service I've had in Hawaii. Our server Nicole was great. We started with the scallop dynamite, which was super yummy. We also enjoyed the miso butterfish, Greek filet mignon and the arugula salad.

Atmosphere was great too.

Highly recommend and will definitely be back.

Food was excellent, waitstaff helped us work with our schedule, service was outstanding, menu was pricier than we expected. Overall, will definitely go again but maybe as a date night instead of family dinner.

It’s was great but the music was just too loud…we had to yell a little to hear each other talk…need to tone it down and you need more art work in the walls !
