    My Birthday dining went well. We arrived early to meet Happy Hour to get some drinks and pupus before our reservations. We then had a great meal with our server Jordan who was very attenative to our needs. But when ordering crab legs they could only provide the cracker and No small fork or the splitter to split legs. Or at least have the shells already spliced? My husbands new york steak was delicious with the mash potatoes. And finished off with a scoop of coffee ice cream with a candle.

    It was our first time at Little Joe's Steakhouse, but the food was familiar since we've eaten at Signature Prime Steak & Seafood before, and they're owned by the same people. The service was friendly and attentive. We ordered 3 appetizers: Fried Zucchini, Avocado Toast, and Scallops Dynamite. Our favorite was the Fried Zucchini: they were fresh and perfectly crispy. The cool, creamy dipping sauce paired well with the crisp zucchini. The Avocado Toasts were also yummy; and the crostini were crunchy and firm enough to securely hold the avocado topping. The Scallops Dynamite puzzled us at first because we didn't realize the scallops were butterflied, so we had a bit of trouble picking them up with our chopsticks. For our entrees, my son and I both got the rib eye. Our steaks were cooked perfectly medium-rare as we requested, and the meat was juicy and tender with a well-seasoned crust. My husband got the T-bone and enjoyed it very much as well. For our sides, we ordered Garlic Fries, Sauteed Mushrooms, and Mashed Potatoes. We loved the thin and crispy fries, and they had just the right amount garlic, salt and pepper (not too salty, and not greasy at all)! The mashed potatoes were creamy and delicious. The mushrooms were also good, though after talking to a friend who also ordered them recently, we believe they're canned mushrooms, not fresh. (It's not a big deal, the menu doesn't say "fresh mushrooms", but we thought it was a little surprising that we received canned mushrooms at a fancy restaurant.) The service was really friendly and attentive, the food came out relatively quickly, and, with the exception of the sauteed mushrooms and maybe the scallops, everything was fresh and delicious! It should be noted that the noise level is quite high. Overall, I give them 4 stars.

    Took my boyfriend here for his birthday dinner. Matthew was our server. He was very informative and just all around FANTASTIC. We ordered the calamari, French onion soup, t bone, ribeye, bacon Mac, baked potato, creamed spinach, and chocolate soufflé. EVERYTHING WAS EXCELLENT. We will for sure be coming back to this establishment. Thank you LJ for making my boyfriends evening so special.

    The food was excellent but I think they were a little understaffed which is understandable with today’s worker shortage. We had a private room but it was a little small for our party of 10. All in all it though it was a great experience and we will definitely go back. The steak was amazing!

    The food and service from Noel was fantastic!! I had heard it was going to be good as it is the sister establishment to Signature; without the price tag. I guess I was expecting it to be less expensive than it was. However it won’t stop me from going back for a special occasion. Definitely not an everyday diner.

    The food was phenomenal and the prices were very reasonable especially compared to other comparable restaurants around the island. 1.5 lbs of snow crab was only $43. Most places were $69-$150 for a pound. Steaks were reasonable priced as well. Taste was great. The service was beyond great. Happy hour specials are also good. (Very similar to their sister restaurant but 3x-4x cheaper same quality food just minus the view).

    I reserved a room since we had a party of 11, however no one informed me that happy hour would not be accepted since we reserved a room. The food was delicious as usual. Our drinks took long to arrive at our table from the bar. Volume level was too loud.

    My husbands steak was great, my sons fish was a little on the dry side and my lamb was super oily. I’ve had the lamb here before and it was great. Not so much tonight. I also said mentioned when I made the reservation that it was our Anniversary. They didn’t acknowledged it.

    The food and service was very good. A little loud. But it must have just been the timing, another larger party had sat next to us that was really loud. We couldn’t even hear one another at our table. Some requests were either forgotten or took a little long to be taken care of. Otherwise, it was enjoyable.

    Food and service was excellent. Only negative was the cold stream of air falling directly upon our party. We were seated in the back area of the dining room, middle section. I recommend a jacket or sweater. Food gets colder fast as well

    Great appetizer, steak was “okay” - it was perfectly cooked but lacked any flavor, sides were delicious, creme brûlée was a “soup” - sent both back - overall decent experience. Hot pot squares on the table are an inconvenience and tacky but eh

    Second visit to Little Joe’s, the service was very good, pupus were good, the main dishes were excellent, sides were good and nicely priced. The cook of medium rare was exactly correct, the meat soft. We had dessert and coffee and it was an excellent finish to a very good meal. Other steak houses might have slightly better ambience or view, but, I have not had a better steak anywhere else. Highly recommend!

    Our second time here. Ribeye steak was tasty and tendet. My lamb chops were good, I got 5 chops. The salads are a bit small for the price since they only give you iceberg lettuce in the chopped salad. The desserts are generous.

    Our server was very polite, however, I think he was overloaded with his assigned tables as we had to wait for 1 of 2 soups ordered and by the time the 2nd soup arrived the bowl was only half full. My ribeye wasn't cooked to what I ordered although it was the perfect cut of steak when I requested a piece that had lots of marble. The lamb chops were good and got 5 pieces. We waited a while to order our dessert. Our reservation was at 6pm but finished around 8:45pm!! Next time, I'll try the bar area for happy hour.

    We finally got a chance to dine at Little Joe's last night. Despite being very busy, we were seated on time and our server was very friendly. We had the surf & turf (filet mignon and lobster tail) and it was delicious! The restaurant is larger than it appears from the outside. It is a great place for groups and families. We look forward to returning.
