I've been to Joshua's several times, everything from brunch to dinner. The menu is varied and eclectic. The food is great and the prices are reasonable. Depending on when you arrive, expect to stand on line. The wait is usually short and worth it.

Nothing but praise for this restaurant. Wonderful, attentive, caring and fun service. Great drink selections. From apps to entrees to desserts, everything was delicious. Do NOT pass up an opportunity to have a meal at Joshuas when you are in Woodstock. This is what fulfilling, relaxing, soul-recharging meals out are all about.

Came in to get a coffee on Friday after reading reviews. Girl upstairs was rude, would rather talk to her friends than serve us, she then made a rude comment to my girlfriend when she asked for a coffee. Drank our coffee and left. Coffee was good, nice space but horrible staff.

Thank you for your review. We take customer service very seriously and strive to be the best, so it is always disappointing to read reviews like this. I'm hoping you could be so kind as to tell me approximately what time you visited, so I may have the appropriate conversation with the staff member. I see you are not a... More

My wife and I just stopped in to the coffee bar upstairs and did not go to the main restaurant. We were happy with the service and had a nice coffee with a shot of Bailey's. We sat at a nice table with all the windows overlooking the downtown area and just felt so relaxed. The woman who helped us... More

I really liked my scallops in butternut squash. my partner had pork chops and said it was one the best he has had. The next day, we had a bunch of appetizers and all... More

This place never changes. Some might consider that a good thing. I find it kind of boring. It is great if you have never been there but - not a place I feel compelled to go to over and over again. The menu and the feel of the place is dated - and not in a fun way.

You can't beat a place that has a great variety of food that all taste great. My new plan is getting a bunch of appetizers, a la Tapas, so you get a great variety.

It has bee a while since I've dined here and it was better than I remember. The salad was fresh , the shish kabob was generous and well seasoned. The baklava was only so -so but the service was fine , so all in all , a nice experience.

I have now eaten lunch at Joshua's at least four of five times in the last few months. The menu is consistently with a few daily specials. I have found the food to always be well prepared and the staff helpful - special requests of reason honored (e.g., different break or something on the side). It is now one of... More

The quality of food at this Mediterranean restaurant was a real surprise for a small town like Woodstock. It was certainly something I would have expected in NYC. The food was fantastic, and I wish I had ordered a few more dishes to take with me!
