Second time in Joe's, this time for dinner.The first time was a lunch date and was enjoyable, hence our return visit. This time it was like a different restaurant altogether.
There was no valet parking , the streets are dark and the area did not feel safe. We had to find our own parking spot in the rain. Our specially reserved table was given to someone else even though we were on time, so we were sat in a shabby part of the rear end of the restaurant. The tables are on the small size . The roof was leaking rain water in several places. Some diners were forced to move and be seated elsewhere. We ordered cocktails and asked for bread. The waitress was irritating and refused to bring bread saying she would bring it only when we ordered food. We insisted we wanted some now. She did not bring it. The cocktails arrived and again we reminded her we wanted bread. It still did not come. It took four times, each time more insistent before she asked the waiter to bring bread to our table.The menu is pricey but they have a prix fixe at around $35.00 for 3 courses. Two of us chose the prix fixe which came with either a curried cauliflower soup or a salad of sorts. Both dishes were awful. My main was a thai dish, quite OK but my three fellow diners did not enjoy their entrees. Two were a chicken with mushroom risotto swimming in a plate of jus with burned and bitter brussel sprouts.The desserts that came with the prix fixe were kiddie portion sizes, ideal sizes for 2 year olds. The wines are expensive with prices around $45 upwards. All in all the evening was a waste of time and money. Never again.
