...a peaceful Mediterranean patio with decent Greek food (really good hummus platter with grape leaves, actually)...a nice, quiet, airy place for lunch close to home. And one of the cleverest logos ever!

Looking around, though, it's easy to see the way it transforms itself at night and the crowd that comes with it. One Sunday we confirmed the suspicion, and I feel icky. Trying not to rate based on the latter...

Joseph's has been around for many years in Hollywood. I remember going to this place for lunch over 10 years ago and recently attending a dear friends birthday party there. The food is authentic and delicious and the service is excellent.

I was there for Bacherolette Party. They told us their dance floor is open until 2am when we made an arrangment. At 12:15pm, the DJ suddenly stopped the music without informing us. There were about 15-20 of us on the floor and had no idea

Pros: NOTHING When they close the floor without letting people know.. That is ridicurous.

Cons: Absolutely not a good place to go for anything.

I came here with a big group on a Friday. The happy hour menu is great! Mostly everything is less than $5. The service was good, being that there was only one waitress for the whole spot. Her name was Jenny and she served us really well

Literally a favorite place of mine - the food is great (The Taste of Joseph's is fantastic and comes in smaller portions if you ask), the staff is always willing to help out, and while quiet - they do have a pretty good brunch on Sundays.
