Best steakhouse in Connecticut, perhaps, New England. Incredible prime aged steaks. All sides from potatoes to creamed spinach were A plus. Service was outstanding by a professional wait staff.

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.

As I am a professional restaurant reviewer I will not write a "real" review here but let me say that Josephs is without a doubt the finest steakhouse around. Truly perfect in every way.

We only make it there a couple of times a year but Joseph's never disappoints! From the moment you arrive you are treated like royalty. The Manhattans are just perfect. The selection of appetizers is outstanding but our party never seems to make it past the wonderful thick grilled bacon. What more can you say about Prime Beef, it is of course, delicious, and cooked perfectly to order.

Joseph's has been on our bucket list for years. We finally made it. It was absolutely outstanding. My wife and I took my 95 year old Dad who has been to Peter Luger's many times. Dad boasts that he still has his Peter Luger credit card. The three of us split the 44 oz. "Porterhouse for Two". It was perfectly cooked medium rare plus. Best steak we have had. Cocktails were well made and the wine list is extensive. We love the ambiance of the place - genuine NY style old steakhouse feel. Our server was awesome too. Everything about this place is exceptional.

Made a reservation for my 26th anniversary. We were seated in the bar. Not my idea of a romantic evening. Waiter said there were 2 parties in dinning room. When we finished dinner there were plenty of empty tables in dining room. Food was good but very pricey.

Absolutely one of the best experiences that we have had at Joseph's. From the start of service (Thank you for service Joseph!) to the last desert, everything was top shelf. Will definitely be back soon.

College graduation party.

Service was extremely poor and not very attentive. One person never received soup special, one person asked for a soda several times and never received it. They boast of dry aged beef, but the steaks definitely did not make the grade. The creamed spinach was so salty we sent it back. Two in the party ordered the bone in rib eye. They both complained of very tough and chewy tasteless meat. Definitely not prime aged meat.

Service personnel appeared messy and not clean.

Will never return.

Haven’t been in years but used to be much better. Steak was ok and the bill was to $192 with tip for 2 with one beer. Sorry but not worth it.

food was excellent. the waiter could have slowed down as he had an accent and we could not understand him. he was a little pushy like he wanted us to hurry up and get out. it was so loud in there you could not hear a word your guest was saying.
