Good food, poor service. Zack, our server yesterday, neglected to provide a side item my wife request of him. Too, he never once topped off our ice tea. We'd been wanting to try this restaurant since we moved here a year ago and finally we meet for lunch to give it a try. The food was very good but Zack... More

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner with his family at Josephine's. The waiter was excellent and did not rush us through the meal and was attentive and helpful on highlighting menu choices. My filet mignon was excellent and the Gouda mashed potatoes were phenomenal. Both their cocktails and their wine selection are very good. Perfect place for a... More

My girlfriend wanted to go here for quite some time so for an anniversary gift I made some reservations and took her for dinner. Upon arrival our table was not ready, which to be fair can happen. Once we got our table we were crammed into a small table barely big enough to put the menus down in the corner... More

My husband and I really enjoy dining at Josephine's. We have gone for many occasions; date night, dinner with friends, dinner with family, and of course, we love their Sunday brunch! This past weekend at brunch I had the PoBoy sandwich- large delicious crab cake on a bun and a side of the chicken poblano soup. Amazing. My two year... More

Now the bucket list is becoming complete. After 4 years of raves from friends we have finally made it to this quaint little charming place. We were there at 5:00 when the doors opened and even though we had reservations the place was stark empty. Good for us since then we had our choice of seating. We chose to sit... More

We ate here while in Flagstaff. My husband had the crab cakes which were absolutely fantastic. The waiter was really nice, in fact, everyone working there was very friendly. I can't properly comment on my meal as I had a cold and couldn't really taste much. They also have a beautiful patio to sit outside.

This is our first visit to Flagstaff so many thanks to previous reviewers for the recommendation of Josephine's. Our visit was a Wednesday evening and there were about 15 other diners at 5:30. Our waiter is clearly new to this level of service and it showed but not unforgivably so. I had the fried green tomato appetizer and hubby had... More

My wife and I went here for the first time Saturday, August 20, 2016. It was highly recommended by several friends. Food and service were both very good. The one issue we had was the server had just delivered our cocktails and the staff brought out our dinner! Way too fast. We literally had our food within five to ten... More

We had intended to go to a different restaurant but couldn't get in. We were overwhelmed with the food choices, wine selection and service. Everything about this place is superb. The prices are very reasonable for the quality of the whole experience .
