One of the best restaurants I’ve been to which was totally unexpected in a relatively small town. The food is deliriously good (plate licking good!) and sophisticated, we had ossobuco and free range chicken with a spicy chocolate sauce both to die for !! We weren’t planing on having desserts but after tasting the main course we could never leave without desserts. That, too, proved to be a total winner. Kendra, our lovely waitress could not have been any friendlier or nicer and had a big smile beginning to end. Manny, the chef is a true genius and a sugar pie too! His dishes are not only creative and elaborate but extremely well presented. Wine list was good. Lovely ambience for tourists and locals. Homey, well decorated with big fireplace in one of the rooms and nice bar area too. Free parking. If there were 6* I’d be tempted to rate. Definitely recommend to others!

Our small family went for a Holiday dinner celebration. Our table was near the wood burning fireplace. The building was a home originally and has been a restaurant for many years. Old wood and stone. Really lovely. The menu offered many small plates, which I love, as we ladies like to eat lightly. The dishes were perfect, as was the service.

This restaurant was a delightful find for us. Being a chef and former restaurant owner, it not always easy to find a gem like Josephine's. Manny, the Sous Chef, was at the helm this night and created an exquisite bacon and molasses demi glace to accompany the special of grill lamb chops. My husband had the french onion braised short ribs and was equally thrilled. Kendra, our server, attended to our every need and help create a wonderful dining experience

Made a reservation for 8 for Sunday Brunch. Seated immediately. Server was friendly and attentive. Food was delicious. We had the zeppoles, baklava baked brie, queso fundido, southwestern carb cake salad, smoked salmon omelet, pancakes so huge as big as a dinner plate, eggs benedict, biscuits-gravy-eggs, and more. Plenty of mimosa’s and specialty coffee’s. They even had heavy cream for my coffee which made me so happy as I usually have to bring my own or skip coffee altogether.
