Celebrated our 14th wedding Anniversary with my wife. The food selections were plentiful and the entree’s we chose were very, very delicious. Our server was incredible. He was warm, funny and there for whatever was needed. At the end we were surprised with a free anniversary desert that came out to us with a sparkling fire decoration. Thanks to making our anniversary date special.

I have always heard good things about this restaurant. It was clean and the staff were all nice. The food is lacking, especially for the price. I would not recommend this restaurant based on the food.

I enjoy the ability to have a nice conversation in the dining room. It is quiet with enjoyable background music. Meals are not rushed. Wait staff are knowledgeable and personable. Presentation of food is beautiful and food is delicious. Always a nice selection of entrees, wonderful wine list. A favorite place to share with friends and family.

The nicest place in Rockford for sure - it was GREAT...we loved it - definitely just special occasions though (not inexpensive). We had the fish specials (walleye and trout) and my parents had the prime rib.
They are definitely setup for parties (many room configurations are possible). Our waiter (I don't remember his name) was outstanding though!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Josef's and look forward to returning. The ambience of the calming white dining room was perfect for our birthday celebration. We ordered steak, salmon and scallops. Everyone enjoyed their delicious meal. The attentive service from Mark is what really made our visit special. We have not enjoyed that level of service in a long time. Thank you so much Mark!

After reading some tremendous reviews, my wife and I were excited to try Josef Barbados. However, upon entering the door, we immediately started off on the wrong foot. We patiently waited for six minutes before anyone even acknowledged us and at that particular time, there was minimal customers. Our waiter was inexperienced, forgot our appetizer completely, inattentive and continuously leaning on the back of a chair at our table try to carry on a conversation while we were just starting to try and eat. That being said, he was a very nice young man and I believe wasn’t trained properly. Our food was moderately at an appropriate temperature, which cooled quickly. My filet was ordered at medium and came out well done and the flavor was surprisingly bland. I generally do not write reviews but when a meal for two costs more than $135 , I would expect for everything else to be more than satisfactory. Unfortunately this night, everything was unsatisfactory... We WILL give it another chance in the near future...

I’ve been at Josef’s before, and it was great. Not so, last Saturday night. The food was great as usual, but the wait staff was untrained for fine dining. It was my best friend’s birthday and I had hyped up Josef’s...the waiter couldn’t figure out how to open a bottle of wine. Because of the occasion, we bought a very nice bottle, yet he didn’t know how to serve a $100+ bottle of red wine. The rest of the dinner was one miss step after another. He was trying, but he isn’t cut out for the hospitality business

This was our first time dinning at Josef's what a disappointment. As we were taken to the very back room to be seated, we find our table is so close to the next table that it is uncomfortable. We wait the next 1/2 hour with no one coming to our table. When the waitress finally came for our drink order , she wanted our appetizer order so she didn't have to keep coming back to our table . Her words not mine. So set the tone for the rest of the evening. Barely seen the waitress, and when she did appear , did not clean away appetizer plates, or soup bowls or empty glasses. The food was not good enough to over look the poor service.

The only reason I didn’t gave them 5 star was that waitress had way to many table to serve by herself and we had to wait starting from the drinks and first course till the deserts

Service was good but forgetting drinks multiple times during a slower part of the evening, with 2 servers, is kinda unacceptable.

I’d go back and would like to see the service improve.

The table they sat four people at was meant for eight, so we could not talk without the hole restaurant hearing our conversation so they moved us to the lobby (YES THE LOBBY)......... sad way to treat your quest no apology did not even offer a drink or desert to makeup for a expensive valentine's day dinner. The owner was right there and walk bye the table a number of times and never once stopped to say anything........

I have enjoyed Josef's many times and find it painful to be less than positive. Probably a matter of over scheduling for Valentine's day...the tablecloth drape dirty with some form of red sauce, the hour and twenty minutes between appetizer and meal, lukewarm food. Not their usual standard; the escargot and the wine were excellent. Enrique is such a class act, he did not serve at our station that night, but he was apologetic and seemed to understand the challenges of the meal and evening without us having to give a litany of complaints. Let's call it an opportunity rather than a problem

took almost 3 hrs to get a dinner in. appertizers didn't get to us for almost 1.5 hrs. drinks were so slow. didn't get meal for 2 hrs. artichose appetizer was awful. Didn't take more than a minute to get our bill. We won't be coming back and will no recommend this place to anyone. The mens bathroom was freezing...doesn't have to match the weather outside. one of the worst dining experiences ever.

It took a few extra minutes for the wait staff to take first our drink order, but those initial "slow service" concerns soon dissolved. Thereafter, service was attentive and prompt throughout the 90+minute meal without any overbearing hovering. Our group of six focused on steak and lobster. The cut, sear, and preparation of the steak (and lobster) was equal to any Chicago area steakhouse and they were delicious. The potatoes and veggies were added to the plated steak creating a handsome presentation. Salads were crisp and fresh. The wine list included some outstanding choices by the glass. We had not been to Josef Barbados for some time and we couldn't come up with a reason why. We won't let that happen again.
