At least it did on our recent visit. This is a fine dining restaurant in a restored historic bungalow on one of Flagstaff’s main thoroughfares. The dinner menu has limited, but ambitious small plates, soups and side salads, and entrees. Our three-chili hummus platter with smoked paprika oil and pico de gallo and chips was as described. The cornmeal-dusted calamari with spicy remoulade and sweet chili was decent. Servings were generous and nicely-plated. The champagne vinaigrette this night was almost all vinegar and unfortunately overpowered the fresh ingredients on two salads. The crab cakes entrée with quinoa/sesame/masa cake and avocado tomatillo sauce was bland. The filet (mignon) medallions were perfectly deep pink as ordered but had no taste; the accompanying risotto was perfect. The pork osso buco with polenta was the dish with some noticeable seasoning. Service was attentive and friendly. Wine and beer choices are as expected at a “white tablecloth” restaurant. We probably will give Josephine’s another try.

Marlene & Tony, the owners of Josephine's went above & beyond to accommodate our large family group on Saturday night, 9/1. They met every special request with great enthusiasm, genuine smiles and ease. Jarrod, our server was a delight and managed our group with great efficiency. The highest quality of food, service and atmosphere....All superb!!

My husband and I were in Flagstaff for four days and dined at Josephine's 3 times! It has great atmosphere inside and out. Chef Manny is amazing! The filet is one of the best I have ever tasted. We did enjoy dinner much more than the lunch that we had there.

A group of 4 of us had dinner at Josephine's on Aug. 11th at 6pm. We sat outside and it was very comfortable and quiet. I ordered the sea bass special which was excellent. My wife had the oso bucco which she said was excellent also. Service was "good"; the server was young and a bit inexperienced but it did not interfere with our meal.
Recommended and we would return.

Josephine’s is a gem! The building is a historic monument and beautifully nestled in the hills of Flagstaff. The Benedict was outstanding. The gentleman singing French music and playing guitar (some featured on the soundtrack to Chocolat) was such a compliment to the delicious meal.
