My Sister had the lamb with potatoes. She said there was something lacking in it’s taste and likewise the potatoes. Most of the meal was left and did not take away what was left when offered by the person who served us.
I had the Grouper along with potatoes and veggies. Yes, I did finish my meal but did not really enjoy it. I was hungry.

Wonderful overall experience...the dessert was disappointing as the fresh egg taste was prominent in my choice of blossom pie. Joseph however was quite the charming host and we would definitely go back .

Nice place for a romantic dinner. There are indoor and outdoor seating areas and there also appears to be a private room that can be booked. The other guests can be noisy at times, but it does not take away from the dining experience. Avery nice find overall.

I loved the ambiance and the cocktails were amazing! The food was quite good, but the portion sizes were smaller than average.
We had steak and shrimp, both were very tasty. We appreciate that the chef/owner visited our table to ensure that everything was going well. Very nice restaurant for a night out.

We selected Joseph's Restaurant because of the vegetarian offerings. We were not disappointed, the food was good. However, the server was not attentive to our table when she realised that we were only having food from the 'Delectable' menu for Trinidad and Tobago Restaurant Week and the servers hesitated to clear our plates, so when we visited the buffet salad bar the second time, the used plates were still on the table. Also, in most restaurants, water is refilled without asking, but I had to ask a server (not ours) and wait until she was finished preparing another table before she brought me the refill. Our server only checked on us once and she was on her way to another table and had to pass our table to get there.

When I arrived, the place was empty. The music didn't have to do anything with the context of the place (they played the Titanic song 3 times). There was only one waitress, the service in general a bit slow and the proteins didn't taste very fresh (you could tell they were frozen).

I have dined here before and it was great. This experience was a let down for me. I chose this restaurant because I wanted a pleasant dining experience to celebrate a special occasion. I was really disappointed with the food.
The ambiance was good but the food was disappointing.

Great family restaurant! And it is just that, you are warmly greated by the hostess(daughter), then the Manager(Helen), and then very friendly Maurice (son). You feel like you just walked into their home.

Food was great!

A great first time at Joseph's!!

enjoyed the options and the authenticity was fabulous. was perfect for the birthday night, portions I thought were a bit small for the price or the price was a bit high for the portion but really appreciated that the owner came over to check and openly accepted our feedback
