“Service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

The staff and attention to detail makes this place one of a kind! The menu doesn't hurt either... I'm still day dreaming about the lobster stuffed sole and ceviche. They have an amazing wine list and great selection of aged whiskies.

“Don't miss it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

What a restaurant. Went on a Sunday night in late June and the place was packed. We figured it had been there for years when in fact it just opened in January. Dustin took spectacular care of us all night. We didn't go the steak route, but rather started with the stone crabs. Haven't had them before so not an expert, but they were awesome and a fun starter for a couple. Chicken and mahi mahi for the mains were both over the top. I would caution however the portions are big. Really big! Bring an appetite.

“Wow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

What a fantastic experience, very , busy but the service and staff were impeccable. We had a short wait after booking in advance and sat at the bar, the atmosphere was wonderful and the staff kept us informed until our table was ready. Having never eaten here before and being British we asked for some help. The waiter was patient and kindly explained that although we should try their signature dish of jumbo crab claws, 1 portion between us would be sufficient as an appetiser. Then we had the freshest wild salmon and halibut we have ever tasted....and we have some good wild salmon in the UK from Scotland! It was a dining experience, go there! And stay at the Sofitel hotel Lafayette Square just across the street.It was fantastic!

“Atmosphere and service great.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

We had drinks in the bar which is beautiful in the old bank lobby. Our server was friendly, attentive and helpful in recommending items on the menu. Steaks and seafood were well prepared. I thought expensive for what you received compared to other high end restaurants in DC.

“Food was excellent - service rushed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

This was our first time to Joe's though we were with regulars.

Love the old bank building and the ambience. It was a busy Sunday night, but it wan't too loud. The ceviche we ordered was delicious, but a small portion that was hard to share with more than 2 people. We shared as a table the creamed spinach (dangerously good), asparagus
and hash browns. My seafood salad was different from anything I've ever had and so yummy - chunks of crab and shrimp along with celery, chickpeas, green onions, and other veggies. It was a large portion so I brought part of it home. My husband had a surf and turf and said it was excellent.

The one downside was we felt like we were being pushed through our meal as servers wanted to take plates when the food was still on them.
