Gourmet, GOURMET!

As the title states, gourmet at its best at Joshua's. Every course from bread to dessert is outstanding, along with the service and atmosphere!! You will need reservations as this place, especially during summer months.

To put it simply the current reviews say it all. Lilly, our wait staff, personified the essence of a perfect server. She explained in her delightful way how fresh everything was; that even the mint was just picked from the garden outside. We thoroughly enjoyed her excellent service and on our way out told the owner same. Duck pate, varieties... More

Joshua's is a wonderful restaurant, serving fresh food (many of the veggies grown right in their garden), prepared simply. Loved my meal!!

Great homemade bread started the meal. Caesar salad was fresh, crisp and delicious. The filet mignon was so tender you could almost cut it with a fork! Highly recommend this restaurant. A bit pricey though.

This was our second trip to Joshua's and we were not disappointed. Our waitress began by telling us about their special drink for the evening, a fresh strawberry and rhubarb cosmopolitan.Yum! Had 2! This restaurant excels at providing the freshest of food, great flavor combinations and the most accommodating, gracious and friendly staff. Next they pace their reservations so the... More

We were here from Florida and stopped here because another restaurant we went to was too crowded. What a wonderful experience. Since we did not have a reservation, we had to sit at the bar to eat. However bar and food service was excellent and food was top quality. Since we are going to be in this area for a... More

We first visited Joshua's in 2014 and had a wonderful dining experience. We returned in May 2015 and again were treated to a great meal. Everything from the overall ambiance to the great service and food exceeded our expectations. The wine selection was good and also had good price-points. The hot obviously fresh bread was a treat as we awaited... More

There is a reason this restaurant is busy! The food is outstanding, the atmosphere relaxing, and the staff are experienced, knowledgable and friendly. The value is amazing. Booking is essential. We have just spent 5 nights in nearby Ogunquit and have eaten here twice - returning as our first experience was exceptional. We rarely praise to this extent. Joshua's succeeds... More

Lovely restaurant with tables in various rooms of an old style house make it a very unique and interesting setting. Staff were very welcoming, friendly, and helpful. Excellent suggestions from bar and wait staff. Good wine choices by the glass, half bottle or bottle. Perfect place for a special occasion, the courses were nicely spaced, we were not rushed at...

My wife and I love Joshua's for special occasions. The food and service are always excellent. This time we had the fillet and the halibut. Both outstanding. You just can't go wrong with Joshua's for fine dining.
