White burgundy and foccacai crust pizza with Brussels sprouts, my partner had shrimp and grits; both dishes were excellent. Dining outside was relatively quiet except for racing noises on Woodward Blvd (get accustom to it...). PAPA Joes is a "do again" and repeat.
Always a great experience! Food is always delicious and service is excellent.
All I can say, is that you must go.. Fantastic food.. loved everthing about the Joe..
Great patio set up. Plenty of space for a safe meal. Service and food were terrific. Would def go back!
The restaurant was very crowded and doesn’t seem to be following Covid protocols very well. All the cooks have their masks under their noses, not covered. We probably should have just left when we saw the restaurant was not very covid conscious, but we stayed. The food is fine, but probably will not be back during the covid pandemic.
The service is very good and the food is outstanding!
Always great food. The short rib omelette was amazing, as is the jalapeno cornbread!
I was so excited to come to celebrate two birthdays and share what I thought would be a great evening with friends. The service was very slow and rude. The food order was completely wrong. The drinks were terrible. Everything was a disappointment. I emailed them with detailed issues from that night and haven’t heard back.
Food is outstanding at Joe's. We just discovered it and it is our go to place now.
Reasonably priced and a wide selection on menu items made this first time experience enjoyable
Excellent food, very good service. A bit pricey though.
Everything was great from the view to the service. Only thing I didn't give 5 stars was the drinks and my entree. No fault of the restaurants but maybe I should just chose an entree and drink more to my liking but besides then everything was great!
Fantastic meal and service!
Andy was our server! Great service! Give the man a raise !
My drink had a hair in it and chicken wasn’t cooked all the way through.
Service is great food was wonderful will come back again
Excellent service. Tried to sit outside. Was a bit cold. May need more heaters as the weather turns.
Usually enjoy this restaurant but the waiter kept touching his mask. The lobster was overcooked. Drinks took too long. Think I'll pass this one up next time around.
Bistro Joe’s has a great menu with something for everyone. They have the best patio dining with plants and flowers placed throughout the outdoor area. The service and food was excellent. We had the burrata, lentil sliders, and steak frites. It was all absolutely delicious. I can’t wait to go back!
Great food but eating inside is tough. No social distancing and drunk happy hour patrons on top of your table while you try to eat. Try to eat outside as inside was so loud we couldn't talk over drunk people at bar. Disappointing really
Our food was delicious as usual but the service was poor! Waiter was pretty much no where to be found. Had to ask for refills even though he walked past our table numerous times noticing drinks were empty. After we got or food we didn’t see him till we were done with our plates, never came to see if we needed anything. Lousy service!!
Best restaurant ever. I had amazing time celebrating my 21st birthday with my friends
Menu is diverse and and we had a wonderful dinner. The food is excellent. The food is fine dining and truly enjoyable.
The ambience outside off Woodward is really cool. A California type experience - similar to restraints I’ve visited off Van Nuys Boulevard.
The service is awful. We made a reservation through Open Table only to learn when we arrived that they do not take reservations for outdoor seating. No mention of this in Open Table. They explained to me that the problem is with Open Table not with the restaurant. Nevertheless it took an hour for us to be seated - seating was poorly organized and not very communicative. Too little staff for the amount of people - very stressed - that was quite apparent and made for an uncomfortable dining experience. One such example - we asked for more water and watched that our waitress had to go all the way back inside and upstairs to get water and bring it down to us - terrible inefficient and stressful for the staff.
Summing it up - fine dinning menu, coney Island service.
Improvements in staffing and workflow could make this restaurant worthy of the expensive menu and ambiance.
Most terrible experience we’ve had in years! It was very hot/humid this evening, so I made sure to reserve a table indoors. When we arrived at our reserved time, we were informed that there were no tables.... but the hostess scrambled and found a spot on the balcony. Let me tell ya, it was at LEAST 15 degrees HOTTER up there than outside where it was easily 88! We sat anyways, hoping it would pass. No. Not only was it unbearably hot, the sun was beating on us as well as the diners seated right behind us. (No social distance) On top of all of this, the waiter didn’t even say hello, after about 15 minutes he dropped off two waters without a word. When he came by the next time he simply said “what do you want to drink?” I then asked him his name (Andy) and asked him to please pull the shade down so I could remove my sunglasses I’d been wearing to block the sun. He said sure and then went to 2 other tables before actually closing it!!! We were done at that point. We will NEVER be back.
Food was very good. We had requested outdoor dining beforehand and they said first come first serve, they didn’t accommodate us even though there was available tables for outside . We ate in doors but we where not pleased with the service or the type of chairs, not comfortable at all to sit in for a couple of hours .
I made a reservation through open table two days prior to going to dinner here. I had planned to go here and could have chosen any restaurant in the area with availability since it was two days prior. On the reservation, I asked if we could eat outside. Upon arrival, the hostess told me she couldn’t seat us outside because outside was for walk ups only. Not reservations. At this time of our arrival, there were at least 5-6 open tables in the outdoor area. She told me it was “full” and we couldn’t be seated outside. I saw the manager, and he started to tell me the outdoor area was for reservations. We had a reservation, I told him. So I was hearing two different things. I don’t know what the issue was, but finally he sat us outside and told me he didn’t have room in the shade. We ordered. Food was great. I was with a friend for a friends night out. My experience was completely different here from the week prior when I dined with my husband and we sat outside -with a reservation - and it somehow was not a problem last week when the same hostess sat us at a table that could accommodate four and we were a party of two, just like this evening. I did speak with the manager at the end for the purpose of letting him know my disappointment with taking time to make a reservation, choosing this restaurant for an evening out and then getting the run around when clearly they had empty tables. The managers name is Kurt and all he had to say was that we were “only two people and if a group of four walked up that would not be fair that we took up room in the outdoor seating area”. Apparently, the motto at BIstro Joe’s is that the restaurant patrons that MIGHT walk up are more important than the ones who took the time to choose to dine here by making a reservation ahead of time and who actually showed up on time and are standing right in front of them.
As long as you are seated in the section near Woodward or upper balcony, it’s nice!
Sitting lower level next to building is boring and feels like you’re in ‘time out’ ! Luckily we got moved to good section.
Food was fresh and tasty! Margherita pizza yummy, and Cheesecake excellent!
Service was a bit slow, understandably ..
During this covid environment life is different.
Sat out on outside patio, adjacent table of 10 people was a little too close for my liking.
Service was a bit slow. Food was nice but not fabulous for price, especially brussel sprouts- small portion for $11.00
Celebrated our anniversary here and the food and drinks were fabulous!!!
Manager Kurt runs the show, and the kitchen's food prep is delicious. Do yourself a favor and buy your wine from anywhere in the store (or the temperature controlled humidor upstairs), and pay a nominal corkage fee. Eliminates all the usual restaurant markups! Great night as usual.
I had a party of five seated upstairs at Bistro Joes. I ordered the bistro salad with salmon and it was quite delicious for a satisfying, healthy option! The little side of bread with goat cheese made the salad. The truffle fries were delish. My one complaint is that if you are dining upstairs the heat ruins the ambiance, even when the blinds are pulled down. It just comes straight through the window and glares down on you. The sun is made worse by the elevation. I would recommend Bistro Joes offer thick, sun-proof curtains for those who want them drawn down. It really prevented my family from enjoying the meal, making it nauseating and uncomfortable.
The food was delicious and the service was great! Love the menu options.!
We had a bad experience with our server. Our order was allegedly lost but she failed to follow up after that and finally we asked for the manager who fixed everything. He did a great job. He made everything right. This is not at all normal for the restaurant. Food was great. Next time I’ll ask for Kurt sooner if I ever have an issue.
Good time as usual. Food was good. It was Clean
Very enjoyable eveving and yummy. Sat outside. Beautiful summer night!
The outside patio is very popular right now. A nice place to have dinner. The food is delicious and the service was prompt.
Love this place. Great food and great service. Will be back!
We had a great time here, it was all my friends 1st time here and they loved it too! Shawn our waiter was just amazing, attentive, courteous, friendly, and just overall pleasant... wish all waiters were like him. And the food, DELICIOUS!! We'll be back again and again.
Menu was creative and each item looked delicious, I had a hard time making a choice. Our party tried different options from each section and everyone enjoyed their dishes. Service was PHENOMENAL, and the restaurant ensured proper social distancing so we felt safe.
