On Valentine’s Day, my husband usually cooks for me but this year I wanted to do something special for him. I took him to Joseph’s and we had a wonderful time! Everything was incredible.

my husband and I went to joseph's steakhouse to celebrate our anniversary. The service was great and so was the food.
our steaks were cooked to perfection, the mashed potatoes were velvety smooth and the Cesar salad was perfectly dressed, not too little not too much, just perfect. and the steak sauce oh my.... that sauce would make a leather shoe taste amazing, that's how good it is.
is worth every penny and we cant wait to celebrate another anniversary there.

Went to Joseph's to celebrate valentine's day with my bride and everything turned out perfect. Great food, service and ambiance punctuated the experience with the topper being a single red rose to the ladies. Turned out to be a great evening.

My wife and I went to Joseph's Steakhouse for Valentine's Day / 32nd wedding anniversary during lunchtime. Bottom-line, the food was delicious and the service was some of the best I have ever experienced in any high-end restaurant ever. My wife and I agreed that we would return someday for dinner.

Food and service is top shelf. As most steak houses you need to bring your wallet because it ain't cheap. With out desserts expect to spend $100 per person.

Friendly and professional wait staff. Nice wine selection. Big portions. Classic steakhouse experience and menu. Quality meats! House salad was also outstanding.

Only issue was that one of our party wanted well done and it came pink and a bit bloody. I know that request makes the chef crazy but we stressed the only thing they could do wrong was to undercook it.... a bit of a miss.

This place has gone downhill. The steak was overcooked and the service was sub par. Their weren’t many people there which speaks volumes. There are far better steakhouses in the area. Skip Joseph’s unless you want to overpay for a mediocre meal.

Joseph from Croatia made our night. He took really good care of us 3 ladies and we loved him for it. He gave us the right suggestions and guided us through the entire order. Was always there when we needed anything and seemed so happy to serve us. He is a sweetheart.

Porterhouse for 2, which more than fed us three was cooked to perfection. We had the bacon app which is their specialty and it’s a must have. Their creamed spinach was perfect. We also split a baked potato and Caesar salad. If I have any critique at all it’s to suggest they use a teaspoon more salad dressing - it was a bit too dry.

As far as steak houses go this is up there with some of the best I’ve gone to an NYC so if you don’t wanna go all the way to New York but you want NY steak come tonJosephs.

Staff was knowledgeable, friendly and treated us like old friends even though it was our first visit. This is a high end steakhouse and you should set your expectations accordingly. I do and the experience lived up to that measure. Highly recommended.

Always EXCELLENT! I had a business dinner with an out of town guest. He compared Joseph's to the finest steak houses in NYC and Chicago. Highly recommend treating yourself to a very special meal.

Sat down and was served immediately. Had steak that was perfectly prepared with an abundance of mushrooms and baked potato. Friendly conversation with Joseph. My son and I discussed how perfect the dinner was afterwards. Yes I will be back.

Porterhouse Haven, not in New Haven. Classic , well presented and great beef. What else do you need from a steakhouse. The hot fudge sundae is a treat, don't miss it.

Dinner at Joseph's is always a delight.
The service is always outstanding. Bacon, the salad with bacon and porterhouse for two was out of this world...as usual.
Can't wait to go back!

The waiter was condescending and not customer focused. Was not interested in serving us timely either. Did not pour our wine and we had a long wait for the check. The wine list was not updated and our selection was not available. Overall a bad experience.

I was with a party of six. 5 out of the 6 guests enjoyed their meals. Steaks cooked perfectly and excellent service. My steak was not enjoyable. I ordered a bone in rib eye medium rare. The steak was over cooked and full of grizzle. A premium steak like that should be marbled and not full of grizzle.I should of asked to have it replaced but I did not want to make a scene. I did not finish it and did not bring it home.
The cream herring that I ordered was fantastic.

Service is attentive, not annoying. Food is prepared, as I would expect at this price level. Value for my money was at expectations.
I have been before, and will return again.
Traditional top shelf steakhouse.
