I live in the area and have found this Restuarant to be one of the best on the island. If you like steak you will LOVE the ribeye here. You can cut it with a fork. Service is always friendly and prompt.

I would phone the restaurant directly to arrange the gift. I have done this elsewhere and it works out just fine. I can't see that Joe's Bistro would be any different. Very nice gift!
