I don't get the opportunity to eat at Josh's often, but when I do- I always have a great experience with food. I love the look of the restaurant as well. Outside dining is nice and Sunday Brunch is a fantastic value.

Excellent food, priced a little high but the atmosphere was unique and excellent party place. I am definitely renting this space for my next party.

We went to Josh's after checking a magazine in our hotel room. What a great find! We arrived early enough to be able to sit at one of the Chef's tables. No extra charge, just a great table right at the kitchen bar so you can watch all the action. Josh is a chef with a passion for unique flavors.... More

My mom and I enjoyed the lunch. We had delicious salads. At dinner with my fiance, it was expensive but, the food was very different and I think anyone could find something they enjoyed!

I have eaten at Josh's multiple times - with my wife, with friends and with business colleagues. The food has always been great and there are menu items for everyone. We especially enjoy sitting outside in the spring and fall.

We were passing by and decided on Josh's after a quick peak at the menu, which promised an interesting meal. The soup of the day was chili made with deer. The aroma and taste were not 'gamey', while the leanness of the meat made for a light but tasty chili. I had the duck tacos as an appetizer. Very interesting... More

The atmosphere at Josh's is very pleasant. Maximum seating provides for some tight spaces with tables close together but one can carry on a conversation with one's fellow diners without too much difficulty. The menu has nice creative touches that should appeal to most diners. Both my friend and I had the Lamb gyro. The lamb was shaped like a... More

Great venue and the food was excellent. The short ribs are the best I have ever had. They beat a famous Las Vegas restaurant which formally held the title in my book. My girlfriend had the duck and it was amazing as well. We will be coming back again.

Wow! I went to dinner on a Saturday night and it was amazing. Definitely one of the most interesting and inventive dinners I've ever had. The chef is gifted and whole experience was unpretentious! Staff gives service like on a cruise ship. They will gently walk you through the menu and serve you with a smile. The food is to... More
