Description: After a two-year closure, iconic Daly City institution Joe’s of Westlake was revitalized and reintroduced into the community as Original Joe’s Westlake in February 2016. An anchor of Daly City from 1956 to 2014, Original Joe’s Westlake underwent an extensive two-year renovation, complete with a front-to-back interior remodel, including the kitchen and all dining spaces, and an exterior and landscaping overhaul. Following the Original Joe’s tradition, Westlake continues to prepare unpretentious, old-school Italian-American fare in an open kitchen for all to see. Elements throughout the restaurant, from interior design to menu offerings, are carefully crafted to reflect a past-meets-present hybrid of what Joe’s of Westlake used to be and what Original Joe’s Westlake is today.

I have been coming here since the 80's. I wasn't sure how the remodel would be but it is very nice and they kept the original feel intact. I do miss the huge fish tank in the Cascade Room. Their ravioli are still fabulous and if you are a fan of liver and onions this is the best!

Would not have had this on my radar but for my family who are members at Olympic and this is close by. Excellent food but the service was the best. Celebrating birthdays and we were wished happy birthday by him on his trumpet a local tradition. Just a great evening with great food wine and service.

Had a great dinner at an old favorite. Can't beat the chicken parmigiana, the garlic bread or the wonderful dessert. Good prices, a classic.

We stopped without a reservation, waited only a short time while viewing the history presented on the walls of this wonderfully decorated dining experience. The lasagne melted in my mouth, with a mildly spicy meat sauce and parmesan cheese. Christian, as a "manager extraordinaire" stopped to chat a moment, found out we from out of town and offered us a complimentary house dessert of Warm Buttered cake and gelato, presented with fresh blue, black and raspberries drizzled with chocolate.
This was a surprise feast and cannot be adequately described in words, but suffice it to say this is one dining experience not to be missed.
There are 2 location in the San Francisco area. Find the one closest to you tonight!
