GREAT BRUNCH!

My husband and I went to Josephine's after a long bike ride and were starving. We were seated quickly and attended to almost immediately. The food was DIVINE. This is a great place to go for brunch if you're wanting a small restaurant with excellent food and prices.

We went to Josephine's while on vacation in Flagstaff. It is a well-rounded pleasant experience. Service is attentive without being obstrusive. The restaurant is a converted house. Summer in Flagstaff does not require AC, but closed rooms do get stuffy. Best seating is outdoors. The food is terrific- well made but not formal. It is perfectly described as an American... More

We ate there while we were passing through and thoroughly enjoyed it. We ate outside on the patio and enjoyed the plants and the weather was beautiful. I ordered the grilled chicken sandwich which was excellent.

We sat outside on the patio. Great atmosphere. The Osso Buco was terrific. Fresh baked, crusty bread was warm and tasty. Their Moscow Mule was also very good.

Very well prepared food...very tasty. Also pricey. They have 'sittings' so we had to be there by 8 PM for the last sitting. Restaurant is in old house...very charming setting. Lots of 'new' food on menu for accompaniments like quinona...and polenta.

We managed to get a 730 reservation here on graduation weekend. It was busy but they got us seated right away. We had a quaint little room upstairs all to ourselves. The waiter was very attentive to us and our meals were awesome! Would definitely recommend for a fine dining experience!

The plates looked good, but the food was rather overcooked and insipid. We may have made the mistake of choosing the Prix Fixe, which looked appetizing. Very good service, a popular place, but we should have gone a third time to Criollo!

Had reservations on graduation Friday, and after trying and failing to wait out some diners who decided to have a smoke and a chat in the tiny parking lot, we parked up the street and squeezed in the door (it was snowing hard). This converted house has no real place to wait inside for seating to open up, but we... More

We unknowingly arrived in Flagstaff on graduation weekend and getting a table anywhere was problematical and Josephine's went out of there way to fit us in and thank you for that. However over two nights the food was really great the first night but on the second my wife had to send hers back as it was all completely cold... More
