Joseph's Wine Bar & Cafe
We went for my wife’s birthday. Fabulous experience albeit a bit pricey. Probably the norm for the area. Great owner and family.
Great Food, and service.
Terrific selection of wines and friendly informed staff
We live in the neighborhood and it was our first time there. Excellent service and outstanding food. We will definitely become regulars.
The food was beautifully prepared, balanced seasoning. Everything we ate was delicious. We started with a hummus platter- hummus drizzled with olive oil was fresh and flavorful. Warm crust bread served with herbed olive oil was amazing for something so simple. Bread was Perfect balance of chewy and crusty. Crab cake appetizer was perfect portion, arrived freshly cooked chunks of crab crispy on outside served over a corn & black bean salad with a mustard vinaigrette. Husband ordered the baby lamb chops, cooked perfect medium-rare. I ordered e Chilean sea bass special-perfectly cooked & seasoned with in a lemon, butter, caper sauce. Dinner was topped off with tiramisu & coffee. Tiramisu was light and not overly sweet. Perfect ending to a great meal. Loved this family place, father, son & daughter friendly and accommodating we will be returning soon.
Fabulous dining experience. Food was delicious. Wine refreshing. Staff welcoming. Ambiance comfortable.
A great "go to place if you want good food! limited menu but everything is excellent. It is a family run affair and they make you feel like one of the family.
Once again a fabulous dinner with great service. Joseph and his son and daughter make this a true family affair. The hustle and personable at the same time. It is our “ go to” place in Delray. Thanks
As always, excellent bartender, outstanding food, best ambiance in a small neighborhood family eatery where they aim to please!
This is an absolute Gem of a restaurant. It is a family owned business, and you can tell that they are passionate about serving great food and great service. Everything we ordered was perfection. Really enjoyed talking to the owner Joseph. Such a nice man. We live in New Mexico and can't wait to go back to this restaurant. Will definitely make an effort to go back soon. I highly recommend.
I have been going to this restaurant for three years , after this dining experience I will NEVER go back. It is a family owned and run business, the daughter is a person that should not be allowed to work with the public. During my entire dinner I had to hear her political rants and her disparaging remarks toward immigrants (mind you she is one herself), but she clarified that she was “Catholic’, but the words coming out of her mouth were not Christian. She even commented on a young lady that passed by with a shaved head and her brother had to tell her that it was clear she had some type of brain surgery from the scar across her head. I asked her to step outside because I wanted to tell her how insulting her comments were and how she as a business owner should keep her opinions to herself, she stated, freedom of speech. So I am using mine now to say, I will never again support this restaurant!
This was our first visit since the pandemic. The quality of the food met our every expectation. They were short staffed and the restaurant was packed but the food was worth the wait. The Caprese salad is one of the best in the area. Tasty tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and a great pesto make it a must have. Crab cake with the mustard sauce was also very good. Duck ala Orange was excellent as was the seared tuna with a special sauce. Rack of lamb was as good as it gets.
with a new hotel opening up across the street reservations will be hard to come by. We will back soon.
Small family operated and managed. Everyone is extremely friendly and polite. They do there absolute best to make your dinner enjoyable. The sea bass for an entree was beautiful.
Great Family owned and operated restaurant- a great dining experience!
Our second visit there and it is a really special family owned restaurant. Overall it’s an A+, from food to service all really great.
Love this place!
Everything was amazing. Very friendly, food was delicious, lovely ambience, just simply amazing!
Excellent food, great service and Elle makes the best drinks
Excellent food suggestions by Joseph, and Elie's winec suggestions superb! Even got a 'top off' of wine to enhance enjoyment on the chocolate cake desert!
Always excellent food.
Food is incredible - the service and family ate wonderful to experience a night out with. They care and always provide a great night out.
Went for Mother's day on Saturday night. We enjoyed the food. It was our fourth of fifth time there. Sometimes we eat outside, just remember you just request it at the time you are making your reservation.
While they are short staffed they do every thing possible to ensure a wonderful dining experience. Drinks are generous wines are wonderful BUT the food...oh. So perfect. I have never had a bad meal. Share the grilled halloumi cheese or order escargot. Divine. The lamb chops and duck are perfect
Food was absolutely delicious. Prepared perfectly. Service outstanding as always. A top restaurant not only in Delray, but anywhere.
Wonderful restaurant and food !!
However, there was a table of 4 people, that had a reservation at 5:30, at 9’o’clock they were still sitting at the table. These people could see that people were waiting for the table, but they didn’t get up until 9:30. To sit at a tiny restaurant for 4 hours is just plain rude!!!
I would suggest that a restaurant should give people a 2 he. Window to eat and talk, especially in season.
Delray’s best. That’s all you need to know!
Delicious dinner! Started with the baked Brie served with Jam, crackers and sliced apple-sooo good! Followed by hot, fresh bread and amazingly seasoned olive oil. Salmon was outstanding. Really extensive wine list!!! We sat curbside across from construction site so no ambiance there to speak of.
I always recommend this place to all of my friends. It is my favorite restaurant in Delray. The staff is amazing and makes great recommendations on food and wine.
Consistently Great food and service
We had a great meal. Starting salad was great; entrees were delicious..breast of duck and sea bass. The wine they recommended was very good. Service was excellent. Other diners seemed to be enjoying themselves as well. Highly recommend a visit. On side street, so quiet.
Excellent food, wine selection, ambience and service.
Once again Joseph and his son provided a wonderful meal. We come here every year while vacationing.
This review was based on eating outside and not in the inside of their restaurant . My new favorite restaurant.
Always a great meal with excellent service and good wine! One of our favorite restaurants in Delray Beach!
Fabulous service & Food and excellent wine collection
Everything about the restaurant was perfect. The food and service was fabulous!
The owner son so was very rude as we were hoping to sit outside under Covid circumstances and every table was empty. I had not made a request for outside seating (which I didn’t realize)but there was a table that remained empty throughout our dining experience and was not filled until after we left the restaurant.
The owners son immediately said he was canceling my reservation without letting me think for even a minute whether I wanted to take the chance to stay inside which we reluctantly but ultimately did. At that point throughout the dinner he had no interest in our table and his attention was everywhere but with us.
The attitude was arrogant at best !
Have never experienced anything like this and regret our decision ! During this time of Covid it would serve his rude behavior to consider that accommodating his patrons would serve him better.
I love the charm and quality of this restaurant. The food is consistently great, and the menu creative. You see the pride and care this family business brings to all the details of the restaurant.
Excellent!!!! Worth a visit !! We will return !!!
Sea bass and duck, too good not to order same thing again. No cappuccino to finish was a tad disappointing.
