We had a more than excellent experience at MarkJoseph. We had dinner for a special occasion, and they did everything to make the evening as special as the could. We had a most wonderfully dressed table and the food was even better. Our Server Michael was very knowledgeable and especially helped with choosing the right portions. He also advised us... More

I have been dinning in New York's top rated steak house since i was a child. I am now 65 and you will not get a better steak than at Mark Joseph Steakhouse. My personal favorite is a black and blue bone in rib eye and the Mark Joseph Salad. What ever you order is top notch. My mouth is... More

I used to love Mark Joseph. It better days are in the past! There was staff that were friendly and engaging. Most of them have moved on. One of the current bartenders is just miserable. Sadly he is friends with the owner. He gabs with his friends and the hostess as you wait to be served. This guy (TITO) should... More

I have been going to MarkJoseph Steakhouse nearly 13 years. Waitstaff has come and gone but the food has always been FANTASTIC. Girls at front are welcoming and they always check to see if we enjoyed our time and meals. We tend to always stop at the bar to converse with the bartenders, which Tito and Jarred always have our...

Staying on Wall Street and wanted a great steak without traveling to Midtown. We had looked at the menu prior to arriving and I was pretty decisive in ordering. My friend was a bit hesitant in ordering his wine. The waiter displayed impatience with that. This was earlier in the evening and there were only five tables occupied. He was... More

One of the best steak houses in NYC and not only... It really worth to stop by and I guarantee you'll want to come again. Staff is kind, ask for Alex; he is quite professional and friendly as well. Next time in NYC, I will stop by again, that's for sure. Enjoy it!

We had reservations for a 70th birthday dinner for a party of 9 and all of us were much impressed. We were seated and waited on by an outstanding staff, and the food was excellent. So much so, we really thought about going back later that week.

We came for the lobster tail and lamb chops, and were not disappointed! A little off the beaten path, yet easy to find with the website's directions. The meal was delicious, service great. A table nearby had the Porterhouse for two; it arrived on a sizzling platter and looked delicious. Our server, Suzy, has been at MarkJoseph's since they opened... More
