This was our second visit to Josephine's, the first being two years ago. The restaurant is still as friendly and accommodating to dietary requirements as it was on our prior visit.

It is so nice to be welcomed by smiles and pleasant attitudes, especially when entering a restaurant with a child. It is sad how rare of a find that is now a days. My recent visit the staff was so attentive and made us both feel so welcomed. The Champagne Vinaigrette with Scallop yum was simply delicious. The Zeppole and... More

Decided to give this place a try for lunch. The weather, despite it being August, was wonderful. We sat outside under a beautiful old tree. The only drawback is road traffic noise but the patio is the place to eat if the weather is nice. Had the cheddar burger and sweet potato fries and my husband had the grilled chicken... More

A friend suggested I try the weekend brunch and I'm glad I followed her suggestion! I was warmly greeted and shown to a table on the lovely porch where I could enjoy the summer weather and the outdoor patio. The Veggie Omelet was delicious, and I especially loved the tomato confit. Don't deny yourself the potatoes, they are beyond amazing.... More

Enjoyed lunch outside at this bistro. We each had salads - grilled salmon baby spinach and champagne vinaigrette - with a piece of date walnut focaccia bread. Service was very good.

We love Josephine's, and every August I reserve our beloved table (#1) well in advance for brunches. This year we arrived early for our noon reservation, but explained that we knew we were early and willing to have drinks on the patio until our reservation time. Our reservation was ignored by staff (Colin/management) because the self-described squatters (I had a... More

I'm glad you enjoyed the food. Sorry for any confusion on your reservation. My wife was the person you talked to you on the phone for the reservation. We are well aware of the 'regular' that often occupies that table for long periods of time. She assures me that she did not reserve table 1 for you because she knows... More

We have been regular customers at Josephine's for over 10 years. The staff at this time is excellent! From Chef Manny in the kitchen to Bart (wait staff), one of the nicest people I have ever met, your experience here is guarenteed to be enjoyable! The Diablo Shrimp has always been a favorite. Pasta shells filled with house smoked Gouda... More

There is nothing to dislike about this establishment and everything to like, requiring a return visit. We wish we could have stayed a week to try everything on the menu. This place is a gem. A GEM! We arrived a bit early for our 6;30 reservation which had been moved up at our request from 7:30. The exterior presents outside... More

After a day of traveling, we found Josephine's for lunch right before they closed. We had the Brie appetizer followed by a burger and chicken sandwich. Both were incredible. Lunch was so good, that we went back the next day for breakfast.
