Probably the best meal I have ever had. It is classic food done to perfection.
OUTSTANDING FOOD! GREAT SERVICE!
This was my second time dining with clients at Joe's. The food was once again incredible! In addition, the waitress from my previous visit, "GRACE" served us again and was as gracious as ever. The biggest thrill for me was that my client was over joyed with the entire dining experience, and that is PRICELESS! Thank you, Joe's!

Went there for a dinner on a Thursday night. The food was what you expect in any steakhouse - great steaks, lobster, crab, nothing inventive. The service was too casual and inattentive. Would I go back? Absolutely not.

Sometimes you don't want to write a review of an excellent restaurant because it could persuade others to go, and then there's more competition for reservations. This is such a situation. Fourth visit to Joe's, and each has been better than the last. My only complaint is that the "hello" speech from the server makes them unavailable to their other tables -- it could be shorter. But other than that, everything -- food, service, menu -- was exceptional, and exceeded by already high expectations.

Great service and delicious food. Strawberry and rhubarb pie was so delicious.
We always try to eat at Joes when in the 4 cities where they have restaurants. My wife is a lover of stone crabs and they are always great here.
Great! Went back the next day for lunch.
Great! Went back the next day for lunch.
High quality seafood & service
What stands out most to me at Joe's -- and I've only been here twice -- is the high quality of service, and the outstanding food. I've always gone with the fish, and I've brought people here who love seafood. I understand they have great beef too, but that's not my thing. Brought some old friends we haven't seen in years, and had a wonderful time. Our waitress Martha and her team were FANTASTIC. They made the night for us.

My wife and I both ordered the mixed grill dinner. The shrimp was a little dry and tough, but the food was very good overall. The service in this restaurant is outstanding. At the table across from us, the party had a little girl that feel asleep. The waiter put two chairs together so she could lie down. He then grabbed two table cloths, folded one into a pillow and used the other as a blanket. Now that's a great example of customer service!

As usual great food. Best Stone Crabs anywhere Joe's in D.C. Is my favorite, I love the fact it's in an old bank.
Good Steaks,Overpriced Stone Crabs
As former Wine and Food Editor of the Washingtonian Magazine, I was looking for a repeat of an excellent meal I had some months ago. It was good, but ultimately disappointing. The jumbo stone crabs were seriously overpriced; the steaks were very good, but lacked the flavor of our previous visit, and the sides, especially the steamed asparagus, was excellent. Desserts were appropriately evil.

One of my favorite restaurants. The food and service are always superb! Their customer service demonstrates how they value you as a customer. Love Joe's for all occasions.
This was our second visit and food was marvellous
I had the same grilled seafood platter as the first visit just because it was so good. We had a guest from Sydney Australia and she was very impressed with the overall experience. Our waiter was exceptional.
Having grown up in Miami, Joe's Stone Crabs was a celebration staple. Once married it became my husbands as well. So, it was fitting to celebrate my husbands birthday at Joe's. The service was excellent, Mike and team took great care of us. From the delicious ceviche to the signature large stone crabs and Joe's mustard, hashed browns, creamed spinach and key lime pie- it was the perfect dinner and we'll look forward to the next one there. While pricey, it is worth it in service, freshness and quality.

My mother and I had a very nice time at Joe's. The food was amazing and we loved the service. I will definitely return in the near future.
Picked Joes for my daughters birthday dinner. It was our first time eating here. Food was fabulous, and the service was amazing. If you haven't tried this place, make it a must and request Martha as your server.

Our waiter Robert was very attentive, professional. The food was good.
I've had my eye on this place to take the wife for date night. This place was absolutely fantastic. The food was great, the drinks were great, our service was great. I will be going back to this place again (after I pay mortgage). But I will definitely hit this place again.

Excellent seafood and desserts. Cocktails done well, sommelier was excellent. They take care of you well here.
If you are looking for more of an upscale dining experience while visiting DC, this is the restaurant for you. Staff was excellent in serving our needs and our server was very knowledgeable and helpful in our food selections. This was our first visit to this establishment and we will definitely be back when we next visit. Great ambiance, great service, great food.
Good Food - Good Atmosphere - Excellent Staff
When you first enter, it appears that the restaurant is simply a high-end bar with some tables surrounding the area. But the main dining room is actually towards the back, and when you go through, the environment completely changes to a very fine dining experience. This restaurant is high end and classy in many ways. I thoroughly enjoyed my steak, and the shrimp cocktail is worth the visit. Service staff is impeccable and they definitely have their logistics down to an art.
Great for a celebration dinner
Overall great experience that was well worth the cost. Our server overheard "congratulations" spoken at the table and surprised us with complimentary champagne and dessert. Hospitality goes a long way with me so this left a nice impression.

My wife and I knew this was going to be a high end (read expensive) meal; the service met our expectation as did the ambience. The food unfortunately did not. We've had better for less. Namely, while the scallops were done perfectly the shrimp and lobster were quite over cooked. Dessert did not disappoint, to end on a positive note.
FUN Brunch with the Girls
Was a lovely brunch. Food was very good - the service was EXCELLENT!!! Was with a bunch of girl friends. The dining room is large enough that we could be seated a little away from other diners and could be a little loud and have a lot of fun.
We try others but keep coming back
Consistently good. Always very good service and top quality food.
Excellent & Fresh Seafood
My wife and I came here during a vacation in DC and we were not disappointed with the FANTASTIC service we received. Our waiter was so friendly and attentive and it was not in an annoying way. We enjoyed him checking up on us considering how busy the restaurant was. His recommendations were spot on and the seafood here is cooked to perfection and very fresh. Its definitely a great place for a special occasion.
