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!

We have been going to Josephine's for many years, frequently stopping in Flagstaff on our way to CO. Charming old house, nice ambiance. But tonight we were seated in a little room with only 3 tables. Sounds intimate, but there was one party of 4 that was enjoying good conversation and lots of laughter--made it almost impossible for my husband... More

Good service, good food, wonderful old house. I had beef tenderloin. It was good but not great, lots of heavy, sticky balsamic sauce. tasted thee quinoa enchiladas and it was very good. My husbands Mac and cheese shrimp was more like pasta and shrimp but he said it was good. A bit disappointing when you think your getting Mac and... More

I really like it when my friends choose Josephine's. It isn't a place I bring my kids, because it's nice and quiet, and that is how I like this restaurant to be. I usually go for lunch. The food is always delicious, but always priced a bit high. My last visit, my bill for my food alone and tip came... More

Had a 18 person holiday party upstairs recently. Great service. Friendly attentive wait staff. Menu changes seasonally. We pretty much had every appetizer and they all were delicious. I had the bacon wrapped filet, cooked perfectly though the bacon fell off before it was served to me. Dessert was good as well. Great place for a fine meal or special... More

It isn't often that you find serendipity on a road trip. How "lucky" were we when the place we were looking for was closed and by happenstance found Josephine's. This little restaurant is a "Gem!" We stopped for lunch after being on the road for many hundreds of miles. It was warm and inviting the minute we entered and were... More

What a charming atmosphere with excellent service. This trip we had a wonderful lunch. Everything on the menu sounded wonderful and it was very difficult to make a choice. Prices were moderate but the food was beyond superb.

Josephines was an interesting bistro, but watch what you order from the wine list. We had to try for 4 different bottles as they were not very well stocked. Food was pleasant but no surprises.

The restaurant is located what looks like someone's house. It's warm and cozy. The wine list is amazing. Food is delicious and it can be passed as homemade meal.
