Rude and Disrespectful

My wife and I had patiently been waiting for 30 minutes for a table for two. A couple of people the Host must have knew entered and were immediately seated right in front of us like we were not even there. Please boycott OJ until they can learn to respect people. Thank You.

Love this place

Food is wonderful and service is great. Love that they are open so late. Go go go. Could be a little cheaper but still give them a five star

After all these years

That sounds just like the Original Joe's we enjoyed so much when I was attending San Jose State College in 1961-1963. And the half spaghetti/half ravioli was the meal we always ordered. The waiter that always waited on us was so good with our two girls, who were 2 and 3 to 3 and 4 at the time. I'd love to go back again.

NASTY!

I only gave it 1 star because 0 stars isn't an option. Don't bother. Years ago our family celebrated special events at Joe's, and years ago it as good. How long can a restaurant rest on it's laurels? Chef Boy-r-dee Ravioli, tough steaks, marinara straight from the can... not even the jar! And nothing beats a waiter with attitude, who could give a damn about serving you or EARNING his tip, dripping SWEAT off his brow onto your dinner plate!!!! Thanks but no thanks.

Best Restaurant in San Jose

Original Joe's has been around for over 50years. Their staff is trained for old fashion great service. An Italian restaurant
with an American flavor. Plenty of food with drinks to match. Try the half and half. Half spaghetti/Half ravioli. Delicious!

Not for me

When I finally convinced my ex to take me to this place, I was unpleasantly surprised. There was nowhere to park, we had to wait for a table for over 45 minutes even though we had a reservation, the food was cold, and I had a very unpleasant experience at the table that the manager tried to solve by rolling his eyes and asking if we wanted to change tables- we had not complained up until that point...

REMODELED - AND STILL GREAT

Joe's recently re-opened after being closed all summer for remodeling. Still the same great italian food with new booths, counter-tops and stools. Glad to have them back. Always fun.

am i missing something?

i heard such great things about oj's. but, i got to be honest, it wasn't that great. what's ironic is that even though servings are so huge you can't finish, you don't want to take the leftovers home with you.

Excellent for a family celebration dinner. A little loud and busy for a romantic or intimate meal

Large family style portions. Couples try the Petite Filet Mignon and the Sauteed Scallops (I recommend ravioli on the side). Do not forget the Antipasto salad and garlic bread for large groups.
