Excellent food and service. A half order of fried calamari was more than enough to start for two people. Fried prawns and sole were top drawer. Can’t wait to go back.
Food was good and served very quickly. Service was attentive. Ambiance was warm and welcoming.
Always a great dining experience! Best place for steaks, chops, pasta... Wonderful and fun ambience.
SF classic. Old school menu, so many choices and it’s all delicious. Excellent service, helpful and engaging. Wonderful cocktails and wines. Valet parking a big help.
Consistently amazing food, inviting ambiance, GREAT service all for an extremely fair price! Always a good experience when dining at OJ’s!
Excelente comida y servicio. Fuimos para celebrar el cumpleaños de mi papá y nos dieron un pequeño pastel de cortesía 🥰
Just wonderful, great venue. Loved it.
My boyfriend’s 35th birthday dinner was amazing, he loved the veal parmigiana! Beautiful and intimate setting.. definitely would recommend a date night here if ur looking for great Italian food. Thanks to the waiter who helped me wish him a happy birthday
I love how every single time we go they have the best customer services and the food is amazing
Have been to Original Joe's many times and have enjoyed every one.
Wir waren für 9 Tage in San Francisco und haben gleich 5 mal im Original Joe’s gegessen. Das sagt wohl schon alles 😊
Ich hatte das Hacksteak Medium - eine wahre Gaumenfreude.
Freundlicher und sehr zuvorkommender Service.
Wer in San Francisco ist, muss hier unbedingt hin.
Bitte vorher reservieren.
We were in San Francisco for 9 days and ate 5 times in the original Joe’s. That says it all 😊
I had the hack steak medium - a real treat for the palate.
Friendly and very courteous service.
Anyone who is in San Francisco has to go here.
Please reserve in advance.
Great, greater, Original Joe’s.
ALWAYS great food & fabulous place! They have the best ravioli in SF!
One of my husband favorite restaurant in SF and go to spot on Sundays . Always great consistent food and ambiance.
There is nothing original left at Original Joe’s. The service was abominable. The food overpriced, greasy, and executed with no care or interest. Numerous items were ordered and never received. No information about what was going on in the kitchen or why they were so backed up ... just waiters actively avoiding customers so they wouldn’t get yelled at. I remember Joe’s on Taylor and on Chestnut - delightful, old world experiences. I’ll never go back to what has now become a tourist trap with zero authentic SF charm.
A very busy New Year’s Eve but had a wonderful time. Great food and drinks!
Had a great time at lunch! Attentive service.
Fun happening place with good food. We always try to have dinner at Original Joe’s when we visit SF.
So so restaurant, looks like all the food were pre-cooked, just warm up.
The food is always good and we love the warm atmosphere
This is our third visit to Original Joe's and we have enjoyed it every time. Our waiter, Michael, was exceptional -- he was attentive, efficient, and very personable. The food is always outstanding. The 49ers were playing at the time of our visit, the game was on the TVs in the outer dining room, and there were many team supporters in the restaurant. Each 49er touchdown was followed by enthusiasm from the dining fans -- it provided a very festive ambiance. We heartily recommend Original Joe's to all.
Wonderful day in the City and of course, having dinner with family at Original Joe's! Always a delightful and delicious time! Thanks and here's to many more at Original Joe's! Cheers!
After the theater
Joe’s service & food are regularly outstanding!
There were 10 of us and 2 in our party arrived early & were seated. They took the bed seats and were already eating bread 15 minutes before our actual reservation. The hostess should not have sat anyone until I checked in as the reservation was in my name. The waiter took half the tables order then left. He came back and then took the rest of the orders. When the food came out they just plopped it in front of people without confirming whose order belonged with who. People who ordered a burger realized the orders were incorrect once a bite was taken and then had to switch which was gross. The waiter didn’t seem to care when we told him. I was very disappointed and will not be coming back
When I made the reservation I said it was our anniversary (actually our 50th). No one at Original Joe’s said anything about it. Disappointing.
My teenage daughter and I had dinner at Joe’s over the holiday. The restaurant is bustling and lively. Like other Joe’s, we found the food to be outstanding. The halibut was perfect as was my daughter’s pasta. Pricing is expensive but not unreasonable given the quality. We will be back soon!
Loved the food!! Service was lacking. Would still reccomend.
A classic experience. We love this place!
My fav restaurant. Loved our waiter Guillermo! Crabcake and artichoke dip for appetizers followed by eggplant Parmesan. Not to mention Belvedere Martinis with blue cheese stuffed olives! 😋
The ambience, service and food was great and we were happy with our lunch experience.
Excellent service. We were not rushed at all. Food was delicious.
We love going to Original Joe’s, the food is always good as well as the service. One of our “go to” places when we visit San Francisco.
Very vibrant place to watch the 49ers. And they won!
We were celebrating our 28 th Annv. and Original Joe's was recommended by friends to celebrate. We had a great dinner and location was excellent. The service was top notch and everyone had a smile on there face working . We can't wait to go back with the rest of the family !
Never disappoints. Excellent food, lively atmosphere, loud in the bar, but no one seems to let that dampen the fun. Will certainly be back!
Wonderful service, great food and ambiance. We made our reservation at 5:15 and were seated at 5:00 on a busy holiday Friday night. I also appreciate the valet service! We will definitely be coming back.
Wonderful dining experience with fresh crab louie and excellent cocktails
A bit of a mixed bag. I had risotto that contained rubbery mushrooms that came from a jar and scallops that weren't washed of all of the sand. One of us had the liver and onions which was excellent. Pricey for the quality.
Great as always, the food was extra good and the service by Nina was fabulous. Oh and that lemon pie is to die for.
