We decided to go here for a meal on our last night in the city. Fantastic and efficient service, really helpful staff and an interesting menu. The food was tasty too! Would definitely recommend to others wanting delicious food and value for money.

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.

I found the service excellent and very attentive. However the turkey meatloaf was very bland, the smashed potatoes rather watery and the vegetables soggy.

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
