We were referred by the hotel we were staying at this past weekend. It is a converted house & is considered a historical landmark. We ate outside rather than inside & were pleased with this recommendation (also by the hotel). Our waiter was excellent, friendly and attentive. We had an excellent dinners. My filet mignon was better than similar steaks... More

In Flagstaff for just a few days... Josephine's came highly recommended by several locals we ran into. We stopped in just before the rush. The place is very cozy, but still "upscale". Evie was our delightful waitress. She was very personable and attentive! She was great with our nine and eleven year olds. Everything was delicious. Local ingredients, super fresh.... More

My husband and I visited Flagstaff for the first time over the weekend. We dined at the Cottage Restaurant the first night and had a wonderful experience - excellent food, friendly service, cozy ambiance. The second night we ate at Brix - again, a wonderful experience in every way. The third night we went to Josephine's. What can I say?... More

I was at this establishment very recently (on the Fourth of July weekend) for a luncheon to celebrate a family event. We were given a private room on the second floor, which the restaurant graciously allowed us to decorate apropos to the occasion (nuptial celebration). We ordered from the brunch menu (a la carte) and each member of our group... More

I went here with family and friends and was most impressed. I am a visitor to Arizona and found the food really tasty. I had the sea bass special and others had burgers and fries. The waiter was friendly and we got a wonderful service as we started outside and it started to rain and he sorted us out inside... More

Three of us had an excellent dinner here. The atmosphere is intimate and relaxed and the decor is charming.We ordered drinks and asked to wait a bit before ordering - no problem and we weren't rushed at all. One of us had a margarita and the preparation was so unique. It was in a beautiful tall glass garnished with fresh... More

This is a place every foodie should visit! We make it a point when visiting Utah to spend the night in Flagstaff so we can eat at Josephine's. We had lunch there recently and their Fried Green Tomatoes with Turkey sandwich is truly to die for. My wife had the Salmon BLT sandwich and thought the sane thing. We ate... More

Josephine's sits a few blocks away from the cluster of downtown restaurants -- and miles apart from some of the mediocre eating establishments that define downtown Flagstaff dining. Everything about Josephine's speaks to quality, from the beautiful 1911 structure that houses the restaurant, to the small, yet highly diverse dinner menu, to the attentiveness of the waitstaff. This was one... More
