First we had a great hamburger (we had standard one and size of portion as normal, not like typical American ones) and on the second time we had espresso martini(which is. Must have )
Price was ok, taste is good

We visited Joe's for both brunch and dinner, and we thoroughly enjoyed both visits. The food here is really great. For brunch we had a variation of egg's benedict with crab meat, a lobster dish, and a BLT sandwich - and everything was delicious. In the evening we had steaks, chowders, mussels, ribs, and more at our table - and again the food was superb. The service was friendly, and very attentive. Every time my glass emptied it was immediately refilled, and our waitress couldn't do enough for us.

Additionally, this restaurant is located on Newbury, a gorgeous street on a sunny day. I'd recommend taking a seat with a nice street view to make the most of the lovely surroundings.

Good restaurant for breakfast and people watching. Newbury Street is gorgeous and this was a lovely place to sit and watch the world go by. Full selection on the menu. Great staff but pricey!

Server managed to not utter a single gracious word during our entire meal. Not hello, her name, would you like water, how was our food, would you like your check, etc. There were only three tables of diners and two servers so she definitely wasn't too busy. Her bad attitude really ruined our breakfast. Plus the food, with one exception, wasn't good. Hard to ruin an English muffin but they did -- burned and cold. The scrambled eggs looked suspiciously like fake eggs. Only the hash was good. I'd say skip the restaurant entirely. Even fast food restaurants would expect more friendliness from their staff!

Very nice dinner experience while visiting Boston. Service was Great! We sampled a variety of items and all were first rate. And we were jealous of every plate we saw on nearby tables, too. You must give it a try!
