I made the mistake of ordering something really healthy but wasn't in the mood for. It was the vegetarian meatloaf which was very good but I wished I had just done a steak. My husband liked his steak and meal. Atmosphere is casual and you can either go dressy or not. Waiter was wonderful and service was very fast. Drinks... More

Josie's food is great. It is a great neighborhood spot with good food and service. Typical of New York dining within your own area of town.

I used to go to Josie's on average once every two months when I used to stay in the Upper West Side for business. I used to love their San Peter's fish, which was delicious....until they took it off the menu for some strange and unknown reason. nevertheless, I was in the UWS with a friend and we decided to...

Visited here after seeing the various reviews but to be honest it was not worth the money. Food was very average and the bill over the top. Lots of other places which are better. Benefits from being opposite the Beacon Theater

I took my daughter and granddaughter here for lunch. Because the Dalai Lama was nearby the place was very crowded. Between us we ordered five dishes and each was worse than the other. The place seems to specialize in health food, but they seem to have forgotten about making it edible. We basically left most of what we had ordered.... More

We really enjoyed everything about Josie's... the menu was all the kind of food I aspire to make myself: healthy, tasty, varied, fun. Our waiter was attentive, informed and very pleasant (Thanks, Marcus!). We also enjoyed the mixed-drink menu... lots of delicious specials. We were headed to a concert at the Beacon Theater, which is right behind it and so... More

I go here regularly to this restaurant as I am lactose and gluten intolerant. I really enjoy the food without worrying too much of the aftermath. The plates are not strongly seasoned so it's soft for the belly. This on the other hand may be perceived as lack of flavor.
