“One of my favorites”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

I love Josephines. I have eaten there many times and have never been disappointed in the food.
My only complaint is that sometimes the service is not great. The wine list is also pretty limited, but what they have is good, although pretty pricey.
I love that they have small portions of some of the entrees, and wish they had more of these.
I also wish they had mini desserts, but who needs dessert anyway?
They always have specials which are always good, but they do run out of these quite often.
I love the comfortable atmosphere and the creative food and will continue to come often.

“Great place for dinner with friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

We were passing thru Greensboro, visiting with friends. Our friend suggested this restaurant. Two of us had the crab cakes and one had the Salmon... they were all great. Our waitress was so attentive and we were never in want of anything. It was a little pricey but good value.

“Very good upscale restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

I consider myself a Foodie and, unfortunately, there are not very many restaurants in Greensboro, fit for a Foodie. But this is one! The inside decor is comfortable grays and blacks with banquettes and outside there is a little space, short on atmosphere, but nice nonetheless. But you come for the food, and it is outstanding. They are known for their Flatbread appetizers, which change daily according to the season, and are outstanding. We had small plates for our mains, and they were quite sufficient. The seafood (scallops, tuna, crab crakes) were all prepared perfectly, and came with interesting accents. Desserts were very good too. We've eaten here a number of times and have always had excellent service. The wine list is not too extensive, but we had a nice wine each time we came. I think it is funny that the owners of the restaurant also own a sandwich shop, Lindley Park Filling Station, near UNCG, that is very popular. I would love to see the owners ramp up Lindley Park to offer unique and interesting sandwiches like the unique food they offer at Josephine's. My day would be complete!

“Fun date night dinner in Greensboro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Josephine's is a fun place to go for dinner. With exceptional service and a creative menu, each visit is a new experience. My wife and I enjoyed a nice bottle of wine from a decent wine list. We had the bean soup appetizer which was surprisingly spicy but delicious. Our entree's included the Scallops and a Salmon and Lobster Cake Sandwich. The Scallops were cooked to perfection. The Salmon Cake was good but had too much going on with a chutney that overpowered any flavor from the cake. This was too bad and is the exception from the previous visits. The atmosphere is fun and we will definitely go again as it is a fun place to have a great meal.
