Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our visit to Joe's Seafood restaurant lists out a few problems we encountered during the visit. First, the bartender, Mattie, was rude in telling my girlfriend and I we couldn't stand at the bar, it's not what she said it's HOW she said it, which...made us feel disrespected. Second, despite arriving on time for the reservation, we had to wait more than 30 minutes before getting seated on a busy Friday night. Nevertheless, we had a good experience with bartender Lee Ann, who was friendly and made perfect drinks. The maître D, Michael, was professional and friendly and took notice of the earlier issue with Mattie. The waiter, Kevin, and his associate were also friendly and respectful, and Kevin apologized for Mattie's unprofessionalism. Overall, the restaurant received a rating of 9 out of 10.More

I don’t even know where to begin… our server (Michael B) was absolutely amazing. The food was equally as great! We vacationed to DC (from the Midwest) and will definitely have to seek out the Chicago location. I had the filet Oscar along with the...crab bisque and OMG… I have NEVER had a crab bisque that was as amazing (it’s one of my favorites so I try to order it whenever I find it on the menu…while traveling, of course… but nothing compares to Joe’s). I managed to “save room” for the banana cream pie and wow!More

This may be my favorite restaurant in Washington. The food is excellent, the drinks are too, and the vibe is very much that of an upscale steak house. Service is friendly and attentive too. One tip: If you visit between October and May, make sure...to order stone crabs as an appetizer.More

Been here already several times for business meals. Food is excellent, staff very friendly. Always busy so make reservations! Can be quite noisy at times when full.

We had a large table but with three small childrend. The staff were honest that they would not put 10 adults at a main dining room table as it wouldn't work, but they were very kind to us with including 9 chairs and a highchair...with all of us getting close but having enough room to eat. The staff were kind to the kids, and had kid's menus with crayons, which went over very well. Everything we ate was excellent, with some things being even bigger standouts. We had oysters, tuna tartare, stuffed mushrooms, fried calamari, and a shrimp coctail. I would say the shrimp cocktail was very good but came in behind the others with the stuffed mushrooms, tuna, and oysters definitely being on the top. We had a mix of steak eaters and seafood eaters, and everyone was happy here. The bone in filet was gorgeous and tasty, but my actual meal was the grilled seafood platter of shrimp, lobster, and scallops. Everyone enjoyed their entrees with a mix of surf and turf all over the place. Wine selection was excellent and reasonable. We had a great Brunello from Altesino as well as a Heitz cab and both were excellent. Dessert was excellent, although I was stuffed and took most of it home. I had the havana pie, which was a tres leches pie. I am looking forward to the rest of it later today.More

This was a great meet up spot for happy hour. It gets packed very quickly and felt especially energetic as folks were emerging from 3 years of pandemic shut in. Sits in the center of downtown. There are decent drink specials and food and snacks.

We had a family celebration and we wanted someplace nice. Joe’s was recommended and it was a good choice. Understand, the prices are VERY expensive and with that you should get outstanding food. We ordered many different items off the menu and overall was very...good, not great. The service WAS outstanding. Our waiter had great personality and was very accommodating. The restaurant is upscale but unfortunately you had all different kinds of dress everything from shorts and t shirts to sports jacket and collared shirts. They really should make a minimum dress code . The space is split into two areas. One has a very nice large bar and a casual high top seating area and the other side is the actual dining room. Tables in dining room are VERY close together and when anyone walks by your chair gets banged.More
