    It started off with no bread basket brought to our table and we had to request for it. Then I had to ask twice to follow up on my order for an ice tea. Lastly and most disappointing, I indicated that we were celebrating a birthday and that wasn’t even acknowledged.

    The service and food was excellent. We were very pleased with everything, especially the service. Being first time patrons we really didn’t know what to expect. The waiter, “ Matthew” explained everything in detail what to expect and made great suggestions. I personally haven’t had a waiter so professional, but was also sincere.

    Parking is limited and shared with liliha bakery. Had a reservation at 6pm we got there and was told they were behind and wasn’t seated until 6:30. Our server came quick with water and bread. And shortly after back to take our order which was great since we knew what we wanted already! Food is amazing we loved everything we got and definitely will be coming back again. We were surprised our bill wasn’t what we expected definitely a money saver for a great meal!

    The service was great, however the music was turned down like we asked, then got turned back up through the night. The food was great, however my steak was more on the rare side instead of medium rare. Everything was awesome, we got our own little private room so the baby had space to run around and not disrupt others and our waitress was very accommodating.

    First time at Little Joe's. Decor fabulous, upscale, low lighting, pretty busy bit we got seated immediately and the service was excellent. The only negative thing in the atmosphere was the music, it was discordant and not of one genre. It was all over the place. The pupus were amazing; salmon on crostini (out of this world fantastic) fried zucchini (what you'd expect), and panko shrimp (yummy). Everyone in my party that had steak raved about it. The steak was cooked to perfection, it was seasoned well and it was soft like butter. The best steak I've had in years! The only downside was 1 person in my party order the scallops which she didn't enjoy, she said they weren't seared well. I'm giving this restaurant top billing because the music is nothing in the scheme of things and order steak in a steak restaurant! If you want scallops, they have a scallop pupu.

    First time for friends and they really enjoyed themselves and rated the food as outstanding. Our waitress Noel was very attentive to all of her customers and I can’t say enough how well she performed her job. It’s my third visit here and I will definitively will be back. My filet mignon was so tender and delicious, highly recommended. This was paired with a 5 ounce lobster tail and it was also very tasty. My buddy ordered the Lamb Chops and you will definitely not be disappointed if you order this dish. My only concern was that they ran out of the Lilikoi creme brûlée. I know now to reserve a serving when I get there on my next visit. Thank you Little Joe’s steak house and to all the staff.

    We had Silverado merlot Wine list said 2016 Napa which we had last time and it was good. This time, altho list said 2016 for the price, they brought a 2018 from another section of Napa for same price. Big difference in quality. The 2018 was poor and more like a $20 bottle of wine. Other than that, Lil Joe's was good, as usual.

    Took a friend to celebrate out birthdays. Had a 6pm reservation. Was seated on time however, after that the experience was won't return again. Service was very poor once our food came we were ignored and staff only catered to a large group forgot about us smaller dining guests. Waited so long had to flag down other staff for service and was still let to sit forever. No refills of water, had to ask for a box and then dessert menu. The waiter was out of touch and disinterested in our table. The floor manager in suit, walked pass us many times never once even looked at us or saw how long we were sitting ... just sitting ... and waiting for service. Never going my. Sad thing is my friend I took to dinner it was her first time at Little Joes and she said the same not a good place. Also the place was exceptionally loud.

    We ordered calamari. It came topped with Peanuts! Never have we ever got calamari anywhere and it had peanuts. It makes no sense and there is no allergy warning anywhere for anything on the menu calamari says it only comes with a sauce nothing about peanuts. My son who loves calamari who we got it for is highly allergic to peanuts. The staff was great the food was good though the appetizers have a very small amount. Where we sat the music was very loud from the speakers and it was cold where we sat. This was our first time and we won't go back but we will try the other location when that open since it's closer to home and hopefully they updated the menus with allergy info

    My wife had the special “Surf & Turf” steak was just ok but the Lobster had a “rubbery” texture because it was over cooked. The entree price was $57 therefore rated value as poor. My wife did not want to request another Lobster despite my urging.

    We were celebrating our anniversary, but we couldn't hear each other while trying to have a conversation. It was way too loud to do that. It spoiled the mood for us, but the food was great, as always. We let them know we were celebrating our anniversary so not sure why they placed us next to 2 large and loud tables. I would recommend this restaurant for the food but NOT for the ambiance because it's too LOUD.

    The food selection was wonderful and we each had our own entree and then also shared the double lobster tail entree among 7 of us. We shared 4 appetizers and 4 sides family style and stuffed ourselves with the delicious hot rolls. Too bad we were to full for dessert. Service was efficient and and very homey/warm. Had a great time.

    We received some impeccable service, delicious food and drinks, and overall it was a great value. We were seated immediately. Everyone was attentive. The music playing overhead was awesome too. We started with the onion rings. The complimentary bread was so soft, warm and delish! For main course and shared sides, we had the the ribeye (one bone-in and one without), mac and cheese, and fried rice. If I could do anything differently (just a personal palate preference), I would order plain steamed rice instead (or maybe eat fried rice first), because it wanted the steak to shine on its own during the main course. Steak was so nicely cooked and seasoned.

    The calamari appetizer was good and my main dish of Filet Mignon was cook to perfection just the way I like it. My wives Ribeye was flavorful and cook how she likes it to be. The only issue was in the coffee gelato there was a few small pieces of plastic shavings which my wife bit into. Needless to say the manager on duty (9/4) was attentive to the issue and I presume we will be taken care of somehow on our next visit.
