A "local" suggested this place for lunch, and I'm sure glad I listened. I tried the Korean Beef Tacos and, while I'm not sure how that fits with "Modern American Bistro, they were both unusual and excellent. Service was great, and friendly, and the prices are very reasonable.

We have lived in Northern Arizona off and on for 40+ years and spent a lot of time in Flagstaff. This was our first visit to this restaurant and we were generally very pleased. The facility is just so nice. Very Flagstaff and comfortable. The service could not have been nicer. Thank you, Michael!! The food was good. I had... More

We enjoyed our dinner but felt that the menu and executions were not inspiring. One couple started with a flour dusted calamari. The flavor and quality was acceptable. Two of us had the salmon, It was fresh and flavorful and accommpanied by bland squash. Another had Quinoa tamale. It was good but pedestrian. I had a combination of scallops and... More

We had an amazing dinner at Josephine's. My osso buco was fall-off-the-bone tender, my sister's filet medallions were perfectly cooked, and my brother's shrimp mac and cheese was spectacular. We were all in jeans and t-shirts, but that was fine with them! My brother had one of their specialty cocktails - I can't remember the name, but I think it... More

We found this restaurant by change and were extremely pleased with it. The restaurant is a converted, older home which exudes charm galore. The wait staff was very friendly. We tried a lot of different foods that you would not think would go together, taste wise, but were pleasantly surprised at how delicious they were. We left the restaurant full... More

Great place to make a full evening of eating out. We spent 2 hours (at least) enjoying appetizers, salad (tasty house dressing), everyone loved their entrees, and an incredible chocolate pecan pie for dessert. Our waiter was very personable and did not rush us. We had a private room upstairs four our party of 8. Very quiet...conducive for conversation.

I will admit that we held off going here for a while; worried that it would be too dressy or expensive. We went for lunch and the prices were very reasonable, the food was excellent, and the staff very friendly and attentive. The lunch crowd was very casual and we were not out of place in jeans and golf shirts.... More

My husband wanted to do something different for Valentine's Day this year so we headed north to Flagstaff to try Josephine's Modern American Bistro (about an hour drive from our home in Prescott). The restaurant is in an old home and is quite cute. We were seated promptly (we were actually early) upstairs in one of the several small rooms.... More

Wow! Really great crab cake appetizers. AMAZING lamb meatloaf with smoked gouda mashed potatoes. Perfectly roasted half chicken. Nicely priced wine menu. Good sized cocktsils. Freshly brewed, hot coffee. Perfect!
