Graduation

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

Our dinner at Josephine's was wonderful. Food beautifully prepared, very tasty; great wine list; fine service. Located in an old restored Craftsman bungalow. We'll be sure to pay a return visit next time we're up there.

HIGHLY recommended for lunch or dinner. Great menu and amazing service. Creme brulee is awesome. Fine for children to attend with parents as well. We were here for a celebration and it was GREAT! Lots of parking.

Very quaint and comfortable establishment. It is an old home converted to restaurant. Large parties get their own room to eat. The staff was friendly and helpful. Plenty of parking in downtown Flag! The food was good also.

We decided to go to this restaurant as it was raining and it was a close walk from our accommodation. We were pleased top have gone there - good service and nice food - I had steak and my husband had tenderloin. Our only complaint was that both meals were served with a rather strong sauce which we had to... More
