My husband surprised me by making reservations for our anniversary. It was the perfect way to celebrate our special occasion! The duck is my favorite! My husband has had several items from the menu and has loved them all.

My wife will tell you I'm usually too critical about Resturant meals. I surprised her during our first dinner at Josh's when I informed her that my lamb T-bones was the best lamb dish I had ever had anywhere! Truly, Josh's was a wonderful dining experience. I had nothing to criticize! I couldn't complain about the staff. They were attentive,... More

A little pricey for us to dine at on a regular basis, but it is perfect for that special occasion. The food is amazing and the service is impeccable. The atmosphere is intimate and beautiful.

We decided to try the Sunday brunch as the reviews for this restaurant we great. Unfortunately the food leaves little to be desired. I will start by saying that the appetizes were the only edible things we were served.We both ordered the eggs benedict. I will admit I am picky when it comes to my hollandaise so I made sure... More

I've heard my parents talk about this place since it opened and I finally got a chance to try it when I went home. AMAZING! My dad raved about the beef short ribs and they were fantastic...very flavorful and so tender. The mac and cheese and sage fried corn were great. Definitely on the list of restaurants to go to...

We were back in town and included Josh's as one of our restaurant stops in Hickory. Better waiter - actually he was great. Better food (except my friend's grouper that tasted fishy). The menu is still varied and creative. Had a great crispy duck with blueberry gastrique. The spinach salad with feta included onions that seemed to be sauteed with... More

Josh's is one of the best restaurant's in Hickory. The food is always very good. Josh is a creative chef. He uses fresh ingredients and can easily accommodate dietary restrictions. It's a small place so be sure to make a reservation. Great location on Union Square!

Josh's is either first or second for upscale dining in Hickory. Well prepared food and great service. Excellent value.

This is my favorite place for a special occasion like an anniversary or birthday. The chef is wonderfully creative, the service is excellent, and the atmosphere is intimate and quiet. I strongly recommend their Cosmopolitan.

Hoping to try something new during our annual visit to Hickory. This restaurant had only one other couple in it when we dined. The waitress didn't know the menu or their bar selection. Our appetizers were ok but the fried green tomatos were so raw we couldn't even chew through them. Caesar salad had little flavor, chicken only made it... More
