Very satisfying meal and attentive service. Loved the mussels, meatball and the red sauce was delicious. We sat in a comfortable booth in the back and while the restaurant is noisy it wasn’t a problem. Was pleasantly surprised by the quality of all the food. My son had the veal Parmesan, his girlfriend the sole, my husband had the swordfish special and I had the Chicken cacciatore, all dishes were very solid. Like most restaurants, it wasn’t cheap, four entrees, two appetizers and 5 drinks for $350. Unlike most places in SF the food and service were worth it and we will be back.

The host was extremely rude that the birthday lunch began on a very sour note. It was so horrible dealing with this young preppy inappropriate man (well more like a boy) that I actually had to say something to management because of him.

My husband and I were visiting from Philadelphia and were in search for a great steakhouse and although the menu featured many Italian dishes, we decided to be flexible. Our meal was awesome! The sourdough bread is fresh and delicious, our appetizers were tasty and our entrees were prepared and presented with perfection. It’s too bad we’re almost 3000 miles away from this North Beach gem! Would definitely recommend to locals and tourists!

We had early (6PM) theater nearby, so we dined at Joe's at 4PM. Although Joe's was quiet at that hour, the service was great and the food fantastic. And because of the early hour, we decided to share both a starter (Caesar salad) and entree (veal piccata), both of which were excellent and plated separately. Highly recommend.

OJ is one of favorite restaurants as we have dinner there about once a month for the past two years. The food and service is usually excellent. Decided to give Sunday Brunch a try last weekend. We were seated promptly and the server took our order in reasonable amount of time. However from the time we ordered it took over 45 minutes to receive our food. My wife ordered the hamburger medium rare and it arrived well done. It took us over 10 minutes to flagged down our server to request an refire on the burger. Waited another 30 minutes and told the server to pack the burger to go as everyone had already finished their meal. 10 minutes later he brings the burger and my wife opens the take out box to check and to her amazement the burger is even more well done then the first burger . I know it's not the server's fault but he could have been a little apologetic but nothing. On top of that my daughter's French toast was burnt on one side of course they plated the burnt side face down. She was so hungry and decided not to reorder. Oh well I guess we won't be having Sunday Brunch at OJ in the future.

The meatballs were unbelievable. Lasagna had great flavor. Fish special was delicious; the fish was cooked perfectly. Gnocchi was great. Large shrimp cocktail snapped with freshness, so good. Our server also did a great job.

I had the sole piccata and it was very good. My husband had the chicken marsala and he was not as happy, but it was ok. He should have had it with mashed potatoes and then he would have been in heaven! The portions were large for San Francisco. I wish I had a fridge in hotel room to save the extra sole. Oh well.

We are regularly go to Joes of Westlake. We seldom visit the San Francisco restaurant, but have. this particular visit we noticed the decrease in food volumn and increase of price. We order Chicken Marsala - very good, BUT the three pieces of small chicken was a bit to skimpy. We expected more for the $26.95 price. Parking was $20.00, so in our book this was a very pricey meal for not much.

The staff at the OJ in North Beach is amazing! They were very attentive, food was promptly brought out and delicious, the manager even offered to refresh a cocktail that he noticed wasn't touched.

Outstanding service from start to finish!
