We were a party of 6 at a round table it was hard to converse without talking loudly and repeating a lot. But then again if refinement is what you’re looking for you don’t go to Joe’s. It was a hot sunny Saturday so we had reserved a table in advance. Half of our party had brunch, half lunch items. Everybody was happy with their meal. When the check arrived we were surprised at how affordable our get together was. We have never found a reason not to return.

The place was packed it was slammed and he was right on top of everything, took great care of us, and made sure we had an enjoyable dinner. Highly highly highly recommend Blake and Joe’s! Just two notes: it’s noisy and my family wasn’t impressed with the coffee. But the food and Blake made up for all of that!!!

I asked another waitress and she simply handled me a fork and knife - NO NAPKIN and she was just grabbing the fork and knife on her hands, not the kind of service that I would expect in a restaurant. I had to wait almost 20' after I finished to get my check - then 20 more minutes for the waiter to collect the payment. He didn't have change. What a mess!

The staff graciously sat us in a private room and we had a great experience. Michael did a fabulous job serving. Food was great and menu diverse for lots of different ages and dietary needs. The mimosa flights with different juices was the perfect celebratory touch. Highly recommend!

Cure Burger and French Dip sandwiches also got good reviews from the family. Only complaint was that they had the TV Volumes BLARING !! Way too loud to accommodate a dinner crowd.

The salmon was perfectly cooked, slightly crispy on the outside and super tender inside. Veggies were wonderfully flavorful. Indulged in the loaded mashed potatoes which were delicious and lived up to their name. The Abe & Louie's Espresso Martini was a perfect mix of creamy deliciousness and a little kick of vodka.

My quinoa bowl would’ve been fantastic but it was DROWNED in what tasted like oil …it ruined the entire bowl. My son’s cod ssndwich was on a sorry looking hamburger bun. We both thought by ordering the sandwich, it would be on a hearty crunchy roll/bread. I won’t go back when I’m in Boston.

I was served an entire avocado on stale bread that was put through a cookie cuter, I can't even wrap my mind around why a trained chef would do that. What a complete mess. Pancakes with so much sugar and preservatives this place needs to reconsider their standards.

The music was so loud we couldn’t hear ourselves nor our waitress. There are way better restaurants in the area, especially for the price. Will not be returning.

IDK why they always hire rude people for this function. I go to this restaurant at least 2x a week and with or without a reservation the hostess will always treat you poorly.

Asked for medium rare but unfortunately came out closer to medium well. Service was also just okay. It was very busy, so understandable, but was difficult to get the attention of our server. Would go for the ambiance, but would not go back just based on food and service.

Hence, we had high hopes for my Sunday brunch at Joe's on Newbury Street. The location (a lot of happening on Newbury as usual) and service were great, but the food was disappointing. The tuna salad was super salty and watery. The crab cakes were flat, tasteless, and watery. The scrambled eggs were hard and rubbery. The latte was small and "meh". There were a lot of cheap carbs (esp. fried potatoes) but not veggies; perhaps a way to keep the prices down. Overall, it seems that the quality of mid-priced Boston establishments is going down. Too bad.
