This Chicago style steak house, reeks of being 'the place' to be in Chicago, in a good way. Elegant, sophisticated, sleek and efficient, this place ran like a top during our dinner for 5. On a Tuesday evening it was VERY busy, every dining table and every cocktail table, bar seat, was full. The crowd was a mix of families, couples, and business meetings.

The NY Strip steak (boneless) was the best we have ever had. The King Crab legs were plentiful and the fish was excellent. Great wine service, decadent desserts (Including the heavenly key lime pie) and very good attention to detail despite the house being packed.

Is it expensive? Oh yeah. Not outside of what you would expect for fine dining in Chicago though, so its' perfect for a special date night, or a client dinner. Absolutely yummy and I hear its great for brunch too!

My daughter, husband and myself had a terrific evening at Joe's. We were welcomed as we entered the restaurant, seated at a lovely table and given a glass of champagne in celebration of our 35th anniversary and our daughter's completion of the Chicago Marathon! Our waiter was very helpful suggesting items from the menu. The service was top-notch and our entrees were prepared to perfection. As our dinner ended, to our surprise, we were presented with a delicious dessert with a lit candle. We look forward to returning to Joe's to celebrate many special occasions in the future!! I highly recommend Joe's.

Very disappointed in our last visit. Joe's has always been a place we visit in Chicago, and this last time was no different. Unfortunately though, the experience has left us not wanting to go back. The short of it...poor service, cold steak, inaccurate description of seafood plate, wrong bottle of wine brought to the table, and manager apologizing and offering a free dessert- WHICH SHOWED UP ON THE BILL! From now on, Joe's will be our stop for stone crabs and a drink before dinner, and then go somewhere else that is worth the expensive prices.

we booked via mail couple of days before. arrived 5 m later and maybe this was the reason why they let us wait 15m before sit at the table. people coming after us were sitting before us, probably regular customers. i was really angry
luckily waiters , in Usa, are fantastic! they are polite, nice, warm, they take care of u without been intrusive, and change in few min. my mood.
they deserve the tips!
Usa, pls export yr waiters!!!
we had scallops and big crab from alaska and a good wine from australia.
bill ,around 70 dollars per person.
if u are european, ask for food with sauce at side.
portion are big, i had to ask half portion of scallops (6!!). cannot immagine to eat the whole portion by myself. remeber that the dessert usually comes with whipped cream, a mountain of whipped cream
