My wife and I bring friends and family to Joshua's time and again. The menu has only a few changing items, most notably the vegetarian choice. Joshua is the head chef, his Mom runs the front end, his Dad is the farmer/supplier/jack of all trades. The bartenders are talented and creative, the breads vary and all are worth the calories....

Make a reservation! You don't want to miss out on the opportunity to dine at Joshua's. From the specialty cocktail to dessert, both the food and the service were flawless. The ginger cosmo that we had while waiting in the bar set the tone for the evening. Bartender was attentive and very skilled. Our entrees of rack of lamb and... More

We have been to Joshua's only three times, but each time has been wonderful from when you are greeted warmly, served one of the bartender's fantastic martinis (!), to the meal and service. Great price for the quality! Make sure to make reservations about a month in advance during the high season!

We have had some terrible luck in trying restaurants we are not familiar with on my companion's birthday. She decided to give Joshua's a try. This was a winner. I called for reservations and never heard back from them. Nevertheless we did show up at our requested time, and were delighted to find that they had us down for what... More

What a wonderful dining experience we had this past weekend at Joshua's. Visited Ogunquit for the weekend, and thought since it was off season, maybe we could possibly get reservations on short notice. Have wanted to dine there on many past visits to the area, but never thought ahead to call for reservations. Called Friday for Saturday evening. Susan was... More

My husband and I came here for our anniversary, and we loved every moment of it. The food is gourmet and delicious, the atmosphere is intimate, the desserts are sublime, the breads are homemade and fresh, there is nothing I would change about Joshua's. Reserve early; it gets full.

We were here for dessert and tea the other night. The chocolate cake was amazing... I'm not sure that I've ever had better cake! I wish we lived closer so I could have it more often. We will be back!
