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!

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.

You cannot go through, stay, or otherwise visit Flagstaff without dinner at Josephine's. Atmosphere, service and elegant food. We stop several times a year (this time at the end of a 12 hour drive). Spinach salad, cioppino and wine. Perfect end to a long day.

we always visit Josephine's for dinner on our trips to Flagstaff. It's always an enjoyable experience but tonight was exceptional! Colby was our waiter. He was friendly, attentive and sensitive to my dietary requests. All his recommendations exceeded our expectations. I am vegan and had the champagne vinaigrette salad and quinoa tamale without cheese. Both dishes were delicious. My boyfriend... More

We hit Josephine's after a long grueling hike in crazy weather on Humprey's Peak in Flag. We were a little concerned about going to such a nice place in our post hiking state but the folks at Josephine's were very accommodating and seated us off on our own. The atmosphere is great and the food was very good. The restaurant... More

I love the steak! And the lamb meatloaf! Ah, yes, and the desserts! We've been so many times, we've tried everything and have never been disappointed. It is located in an old house that was converted to a very nice restaurant. Charming

We were in Flagstaff on a mini-vacation to celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary. Though we've had many excellent casual meals Flagstaff, we'd never dined at a special occasion restaurant. After doing much online research, I decided on reservations for Hubby and myself at Josephine's. The service was very good, but that is about the only positive thing I can say.... More

We ate here with a friend from Flagstaff. What a surprise!! The food was outstanding with great service. We started with the fried green tomatoes which were good but not the best I have eaten. The sales were good with very fresh ingredients. Taste was excellent. Main course dinners were cioppino which was excellent. Great flavor with a good mix... More

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.
