“Excellent restaurant, except with large groups.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2011

Joseph's is probably one of the finest dining restaurants in OOB.
The food is always spot on and the menu has a nice array of choices (though not too many). We love to go here for a nice dinner however they have a problem catering to large groups. We have always had great service when we went as a group of 2-4 people but we have been 3-4 times with a group of 12 and while the food is always excellent the service cannot seem to cope with such a large group. Some of the waitresses (not the majority) seem a little tired of working there and should not be in the service industry. We once overheard a waitress telling another that she had turned down the heat to "freeze out the remaining customers". It was 5 minutes after "kitchen closing time".

Other than these bad apples, the rest of the staff is great.

The Sunday brunch is one of the best breakfasts we have ever had. And it is really nice to eat on the patio looking out at the ocean.
