This place was a bit nicer than some recent tripadvisor reviews would suggest. We had lunch here with our 3 and 6 year olds on a rainy Saturday. There were good choices for the kids and service was prompt and efficient. I would go back again.

We'd heard good things about Josies from family members (who are vegitarian, btw). I had the Burger (which was quite average), and my wife had the Seafood/Salmon Special (which she said was very good). Josies is at a terrific location, but the interior/furnishings are (almost) institutional. Beer was nice and cold. For me the highlight was our waiter (Marcus) who... More

The unfried rice dishes are a great idea. Prices are reasonable considering the area. They also do takeaway. Great location just on Amsterdam.

We came here wanting a really quick feed as we had a concert to go to. Staff were accommodating and extremely helpful. The food we ordered was delicious (tuna burger - I want to return tonight for another! And the mahi mahi special)... Menu is healthy and extensive. Did I forget to mention we randomly got an extra glass of... More

Dined at Josie's with a few friends and we tried a variety of items from the menu. All were excellent and the service was solid as well. Recommended if you are looking for a good place on the UWS for brunch.

Met a group of old college friends here for dinner. The availability of vegan dishes was good to accommodate some of our party. The fair was supposed to be fresh and healthy and locally sourced as much as possible. The server was funny and informed but not at all attentive. The wine list was well below par for NYC and...

Had good roasted chicken with mashed potatoes, followed by apple pie. Pasta was also quite decent. Service was very nice and friendly. I have heard this restaurant described as a "favorite" by NY residents....no wonder!

The food here is honest: fresh ingredients, organic (most) and prepared with care. But don't expect your meal to be unforgettable. Service is a bit slow.

Our friends in the neighborhood recommended this restaurant as a healthier option than usual. There were four of us for dinner and we all ordered different meals. We were all pleased, the portions were substantial and everything was really fresh. The place itself is ordinary, not at all elegant dining. The waiter was enthusiastic and appropriately interested in us having... More
