THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Restaurant of Joe Greensleeves Restaurant Review

: Joe Greensleeves is a neighborhood eatery that would be a welcome addition to any street, whether in Redlands or Beverly Hills. The restaurant's narrow room, with half the hull of a schooner mounted on one wall and a prominent fireplace on another, provides a cozy setting. Most of the seating is accommodated by comfortable booths illuminated by green-shaded banker's lamps. In addition to the house's signature steaks and chops (cooked over an orange-wood grill), the kitchen turns out some solid house-made pastas, such gnocchi with smoked duck, and spaghetti with salmon and cream. Veal scaloppine is flattened and layered with mozzarella, prosciutto and sage. A formidable dessert cart is stocked with a cannoli-mascarpone cheesecake, tarte Tatin and the zuccotto, a house specialty. The wine list is packed with popular California labels. Service is both knowledgeable and amiable.

Joe Greensleeves in Redlands--Come for Delicious!
by Yucaipafoodie on Tue Nov 04, 2014 7:09 am
I had the pleasure to eat for the first time at Joe Greensleeves in Redlands, California approximately two weeks ago. It was one of the best meals I've had in a long time. I ordered the salmon with broccoli and potatoes and my boyfriend ordered the spinach and ricotta ravioli. To begin, our experience started on a great note with who I believe was the owner seating us herself at a thoughtfully considered location in a small, two-person booth against the wall. One of my favorite aspects of the experience was that the booth had a very small pillow between me and the wall. Subtle, cozy, inviting. We ordered our meal and the waiter stated that the bread was "coming out of the oven" soon. It was delicious sourdough I believe. The olive oil dish placed for dipping had something delicious in it to season and it was delicious. Did I say that already?

The salmon was seriously one of the best things I've ever tasted. It felt like it had been steamed to delicate perfection, covered with a light sauce of some kind with capers. The taste is beyond description but I'll try. Light, not fishy and so delicate in flavor, perfect texture, melt-in-your-mouth good. The broccoli which is not my favorite vegetable was perfect, too.My partner's ravioli was according to him delicious. Covered in a light red, meatless sauce. As we are largely non-meat eaters when we can be, we are connoisseurs of pasta. He loved his meal.

We each had a glass of wine with the meal. I'm not a wine drinker per se so can only say that it was fine. His was as well. For dessert, we shared a raspberry cheesecake that was good. I've had better, but it had a nice light tough and what appeared to be fresh whipped cream.

During the meal, the owner stopped by to see how we were doing and asked if we were enjoying the meal. She also said goodbye as we left. Customer service from owner: 10 and a ten for the small touch of the little pillow.

Only mildly negative comment: Our waiter was a little slow and had thought he told us about the daily specials and introduced himself. It was only when I asked about the daily specials because I heard another waiter do so to the booth behind me that he apologetically asked had he not told us these, and had he told us his name. I suspect he was having an off-night, and I could see from other server's attentive behavior that good service is likely the norm.

I would recommend Joe Greensleeves and look forward to another delicious meal there at some point.
