Reviews

"This was the best experience that  my fiance and I have ever had at a restaurant. The food,service and all around feeling was unlike anything I had ever experienced in an dining experience.  We will be back soon. Thank you."

 "The food is excellent beyond description, the chef produces some amazing entrees which change frequently. Our server was amazing (Stephanie), she wasn't the scripted, robotic server that you sometimes find in fine dining restaurants. Josef greeted us at the door and introduced us to his daughter who was the hostess. Don't miss this place if you are in the mood for fine dining, It's 5 star!!"

"Josef Barbados provides a wonderful experience and well worth the cost. The classic escargot, herb-crusted rack of lamb and pan-seared scallops were cooked to perfection, as was everything else. The waitstaff was very attentive and efficient. The atmosphere in the dining area was cozy and quiet, allowing for a pleasant conversation with my dining companion. We will be back soon!!!"

"My husband and I had a great experience in our first visit to Josef Barbados Steakhouse. The food was wonderful but the service was 2nd to none. Enrique was our waiter and we will request him every time we return. He was very helpful and knew a lot about the entrees and especially about the wines. It was a fantastic overall experience and we can’t wait to return! "

"Food was fantastic! I had the Ahi Tuna, my daughter had the Swordfish and my husband had the Halibut. All were excellent but we all agreed the Ahi Tuna was the best of the three. Service was great too. Definitely recommend for a nice, quiet, and elegant dining experience."

"A very nice restaurant. Enjoyed everything about it. The food was excellent and the service was impeccable."
