You guys knocked it out of the park!!! It was my sisters 60th birthday and you guys put the icing on the cake with your service and food. Thanks!!!!
Kid friendly, drinks, great service, and delicious food!
Deinks were great. Food was just good, not great. Our first server was mediocre but his shift ended and our next server was awesome! Since I am not from this area I would say that I won’t be back, because I like to try new things. If I was a local I would be back.
Great service and food
We all had the burgers. Very San Francisco. Giant burgers on sourdough rolls. Generous cocktails. The only thing is they put us in the back. In a huge booth. Firstly, I'd requested a table because we were six and older than dirt. Not easy to get in or out of booth. Affect of booze didn't help. This is my go to restaurant because 1) good food, 2) generous reasonably priced premium cocktails, 3) PARKING! Highly recommend.
Loved everything about the restaurant. The hostesses were friendly and accommodating.
Service was excellent and the food was great.
Must come here especially if u r visiting San Francisco like we did b
Classic Italian food in friendly surroundings. As always, portions were huge, but that’s what refrigerators are for. Wait and serving staff were excellent.
This was a great experience like the ambiance and the food was really good . I will definitely go back
It exceeded my expectations! The service was great. The Original Joe's Hamburger Sandwich was AMAZING!
Food was alright but not as good as prior times. Service was somewhat chaotic and rushed. Drinks were great...still one of the best bars in SF. Always has been one of my favorite SF restaurants but this time not up to the level I experienced before.
Fun night out for my son’s birthday dinner
Food is great! It's a little pricey depending on what you order but it's delicious.
Always a treat dining at Original Joe's. Service is on point and the food always delicious. IT has become my go-to spot for catching up with friends or a simple night out.
Always a solid meal and experience.
Fantastic Italian food and friendly fast service. We had a range of meals from shrimp scampi to veal to spaghetti and meatballs and all were excellent. Delicious appetizers too!
Always enjoy our dining experience @OJ’s! Great food w/good friends...
best food in the area and the service is wonderful. counter and lounge are also great to dine in
Always a great go to place for lunch or dinner with a fun atmosphere
Amazing meal overall! Outstanding service and the best cocktail drinks I’ve ever had!!
Seven of us were celebrating a Birthday on a Sunday for bunch. It was very busy. Our server was excellent. She smiled and wished our friend Happy Birthday. She was delightful. The food is always great.
2 of the couples had never been to Original Joe's in the city, but they will be back.
Thank you for a lovely Birthday Brunch. Janet Bonanno
Waitress very cheerful and bubbly! Food was fantastic! Love original Charles!
It was okay, my fiancé went there as a child and had fond memories of the place. I didn’t think it was anything special.
We went to Original Joe's to celebrate our son's birthday. We couldn't be happier with the whole experience. The bar is hopping, yet the bartenders are still attentive. The dining rooms are busy and loud but the energy is great. The waiters and dining room staff are friendly and quick. They are there when you need them and unobtrusive when you don't. The food was exceptional. The appetizers came out quickly - highly recommend the crab cake and the arancini. We were all super pleased.
Great old San Francisco restaurant. We’ll be back.
Good food (Italian American style) and comfortable atmosphere. A San Francisco classic.
Overall a great dining experience. Authentic food...old school vibe, in a very good way
This is our "go to" place for "going out." We don't have to worry about the quality of the food or service. We can hear ourselves talk and enjoy great dining.
Went here for a after work dinner and everyone loved it.
pre-ordered & served on time!
30 year anniversary. Always great food
The noise level was difficult to deal with, especially since one in our party is hard of hearing. Three of us liked our entrees (two gnocchis and a ravioli), but my husband, who had the veal scalloppini, thought his was fairly tasteless. I tasted it and thought it was good but that the cut of meat was a bit tough, especially at a price tag of $30. Not sure if he's lost his sense of taste or is just incredibly picky - could be a bit of both, but it wasn't worth the $30 price.
Otherwise, a pleasant meal.
The prime rib, as well as the rib eye was awesome, along with everything else. The waiter was very attentive, and everything was great. The noise level was a little hight, but the restaurant was packed so I totally understand.
Went back for more chicken parm, still great!
Birthday. Waiter was so friendly and accommodating. Food was excellent.
Liked the room & decor.
Service was friendly and efficient.
Just a little too noisy.
Food was great.
El mesero muy sobrado y poco agradable
Sat outside as Original Joe's was packed. Joe's Ravioli was good but way too much to eat. Calamari steak was out of this world tender. Good cocktails and service.
