    We went for dinner with friends and were looking forward to catching up. The restaurant was quite bustling and fun however, it was also quite noisy. They found us a table way in the back (we didn’t know that it went back that far) and it was much quieter. Great food and great conversation!

    Unfortunately, we had terrible service. That has never happened there before do I think the server was new or overwhelmed. We loved the food but had friends join us and the server forgot drinks or brought the wrong ones. Huge delay from appetizer to entree too.

    I had a bone in ribeye. The steak was very delicious but when I got the bill I almost fell off my chair. I know the steak was market price but $65 for a piece of steak and some brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes. Over priced for the value. Our weather did an excellent job, drinks were good.

    This should have been an outstanding holiday meal amongst good friends who thought long and hard about where to go . Unfortunately our server was abrupt, rude, rushed and unpleasant, even after our constant attempts to kill his mood with our kindness. The temperature was inconsistent with the heaters either blasting unbearable heat and turning off altogether. There was not one dairy free option on the menu though the market is just below. The food was fine but way overpriced for the poor experience. So unfortunate to say, but I’m doubtful we will ever return.

    The restaurant was very hot, my whole group was sweating. We ordered appetizers and they didn’t come until right before our meal so it wasn’t really an appetizer. It also took an hour after ordering to get our food. The food itself was amazing! The restaurant was not busy at all when we were there. Maybe about five tables total.

    Saturday night dining out at Joe’s Bistro after a movie, with lots of things to like. We were able to book at a popular time at 7:30 pm, see lots of good meat and seafood options on the menu and daily specials and get a bottle of wine from Papa Joes to make the right wine choice for what we ordered. Great food and a fun evening!

    Food and service were A1. Asparagus wasn’t on the menu and they went downstairs to the market and got us some when we asked! Can’t ask for much more than that.

    We were here on a Sunday evening, so not too crowded. We dine here ofter, but my husband and I both agreed it was one of the best meals we have had there! we both chose the specials, I had the monkfish and my husband the perch, both were outstanding! I had french onion soup for an app/my husband the wedge salad, we also had the mussels, that pesto cream sauce is DIVINE! This is such a fun location, looking out on Woodward Ave, or into the gorgeous market below-one of the best kept secrets around! Our server was so sweet and fun, we did not catch her name, unfortunately, but helped make the evening relaxing and fun.

    Everything from the food to the service and experience was very good. The steaks we had were not quite as tasty as in the past for some reason and I am not sure why. Even though it was extremely busy the service was excellent. We will be back.

    What happened to this once great restaurant? The kitchen has certainly gone downhill. Portion sizes were suitable for an infant – – definitely insulting for the high prices. We all agreed we would never return.

    I ordered the Diver Scallops entree ($49). The portion was rediculously small, only three scallops, no starch, and looked tiny despite being served on a small appetizer plate. I was very dissappointed and left the resteraunt hungry. I would not return.

    Great waiter, listened and got us everything we needed. Mussels were great, perhaps could have had more but it was only an appetizer. Kitchen split pasta dish prior to serving, nice touch. ½ order each was plenty to eat.

    My ten year old grandson ordered off the kids' menu two four-ounce steak bits. Our waitress told us he'd be better off ordering the eight ounce filet. (The only problem was there is an up-charge of 11 dollars for that meal.) My grandson noticed the difference but I let it slide. I doubt we'll return. Food was okay but overpriced, even for Birmingham. They need a better wait staff. Tony and Joe Curtis should be made aware of this issue. Also, I asked about the Happy Hour and was informed that they no longer have one but I thought I saw it on their web site.

    Dinner was phenomenal. Pinot Gris was on point. Great Michigan brand choice. Creme brulee for dessert was the perfect end to the meal. Our server was very attentive and helpful and always around when anything was needed. Wish I could remember her name. My own fault as I'm bad in that department. Highly recommend this place for a perfect date night.
