Joe G Restaurant

Joe G"s is a family owned and operated Italian restaurant is nestled in the heart of New York.

Established more than 20 years ago, this stylish, renovated restaurant has an ambiance with dark Mahogany wood paneling, mirrors, and scenic photos of Italy to create a warm and cozy dining experience. Despite such seclusion, Joe G's is clearly sought after: shoppers, families, couples and business types are typically found here. Our specials are truly delicious, the combination of ingredients are distinctively paired creating a succulent dish you will enjoy. You can't go wrong with our standards entrées, which are prepared amazingly fresh to order and our pizzas are an obvious specialty. The wine list is extensive and for the most part Italian, with a great choice from well-priced house wines to the top of the range supertoscans, service is sharp and attentive and are knowledgeable with our wine menu.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

"Tucked in the basement level of 56th and 8th Avenue, this Italian restaurant is a great find! Reasonably priced and great Italian in a cozy setting. A neighborhood restaurant in the middle of tourists. Great place to escape the city buzz for a meal before or after a show."

"Joe G is the type of restaurant that you would go to for a great lunch or a wonderful meal after work with friends and co workers. As a place for a romantic meal you would need to look for another venue. The food is excellent, I recommend the Lobster Ravioli in gorgonzola sauce and the Salmon DaVinci, as is the service (Frank). The ambiance however leaves something to be desired, which diminishes greatly from the total experience, which is a pity. More could be done with a bit of an effort to make the dining room more elegant, instead of an afterthought."

"We had a 7:30 reservation. When we got there the woman who greets you outside said we would be seated shortly. After 15 minutes of waiting I asked the bartender how long it would be. She said that they were cleaning the table "now." After another 15 minutes I asked again. She said they were cleaning the table "now." I spoke to the woman outside. She said that I shouldn't have come late for my 6:00 reservation. (Remember, it was for 7:30.) 15 minutes later someone in the front area left and they cleaned he table for my group (4 of us, which included a 10 year old). We told the owner (?) what happened. He said that there was a group in the back that stayed longer than they thought they would. When we asked why they told us twice that they were cleaning a table for us, he had no response.
The waiter was nice. The food was pretty good.
I'll never go back."

"It was amazing food and a great overall experience. Booked the reservation on open table only 30 minutes before. This caused a slight mistake as there was someone seated at our table when we got there. The hostess was very nice and apologized for what had happened. After waiting for around 15 minutes we were seated and the dining experience went way up from there. The staff was extremely friendly and really made up for their slight mistake. The food was amazing their seafood pasta dish was incredible and included lots of muscles shrimp and scallops I believe. Overall an awesome place off the beaten path and very well experience. Would recommend to anyone."

"We enjoyed a quick lunch in a Wednesday afternoon and while pace was quick, it was not rushed. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the service was attentive. With all the choices in the area, it's difficult to say whether we will return soon as there was nothing outstanding - yet again, got the price it was good."

"Had dinner with my significant other after work. Small quaint and romantic spot. Very traditional Itilian restaurant. The waiter was excellent, charm of Italian mannerisms and accent. Food and wine did not dissapoint. Delicious! Manga! We were pleasantly stuffed."

"Went here the other night with my family. The food was delicious and the service was great! The staff is very attentive, and they don't rush you to finish your meal, which is nice. Also, they kept my purse in a safe place when I had accidentally left it behind. I'll definitely be going to Joe G the next time I'm in New York!"

"I never asked about salad so not a fan of spring salad I was disappointed. Veal piccata was excellent with sides of fresh green beans & broccoli. My husband had pasta & clam sauce & said it was good but not as good as veal. Ate in bar area by choice but it was loud with what we thought were locals. Because it's in a basement there is no view but the food is worth it."

"I was looking for a quaint little restaurant to have a nice quiet dinner with my partner who has never been to NYC before. We picked Joe G's basically because of it's proximity to our hotel and reviews on Yelp. There was someone outside of the restaurant greeting passerbyers. I loved that this restaurant was sub-level. It was traditional NYC dining almost tucked away. It wasn't crowded at all and this was not a poor reflection on the restaurant itself, it's just that there is so many restaurants in the area to choose from. We were seated rather quickly and our server was attentive, professional and SUPER fast. Within 5-10 minutes of arriving we had already received bread and drinks. Shortly after, our dinner arrived. The food was to die for and the dessert was impeccable. If you're looking for a small restaurant with BIG charm and excellent service, this place is it. Next trip I will make it a point to stop in again. The food was also reasonably priced."

"The sign may make you think the entrance is the hotel/apartment building above, but you are really looking for the stairway that delves below the first floor stoop (like any bad in a classic sitcom). Instead of the seemingly packed bars & the cast of HIMYM or Cheers, you will instead find a quaint Italian Restaurant with excellent food and a good wine list at great prices.
The basement level restaurant shields you from the noise and hub-ub of the street. When you first enter there is a bar were a small crowd will gather at the stools and chat, but, whether by design or luck, the dining room is mostly shielded from the low din by outcropping that leads to the kitchen.
Booth & chair seating, with a classic oaky & red color scheme, and the traditional decor adorning the walls -- over sized wine bottle & little statue of a mustachioed Italian chef. The place is exactly the kind of hidden place you'd want to find among the chic, new wave, louder digs sprawled all over Manhattan.
We dined there Friday at around 8pm. We had reserved for 7:30, but train issues delayed us, they still held our table. The food was great. Fried Calamari to start; the calamari itself was exactly what you'd expect but the marinara sauce was delicious. Appetizer was followed by a veal cutlet dish topped with mozzarella and prosciutto -- really a fantastic combo, and my date enjoyed a vegetable medley (which we were pleasantly surprised to find included eggplant!) pasta dish, with marinara sauce. Following that we ordered an incredibly rich cannoli and some after dinner drinks. Slap on a bottle of wine, total cost $123 + tip. AND the servers were perfect. Attended to water as needed, but not hovering.
All in all great night, great location. Near the theaters on Broadway, 2 blocks from Columbia Circle and Central Park, couple more from Carnegie Hall, straight 5 block shot up from Times Square, but away from all the discord and mayhem of each. Felt like I was in a classic movie."
