Our second time for brunch and it was as wonderful as the first time. Every dish we had was delicious; by far shrimp and grits take the top spot. I want to give Cody a shoutout; for being awesome and doing it right. Would definitely be going back.
The Experience is always great! You get to try different dishes, and for small plates they are a pretty decent sized portions. Great drink selection as well.
Excellent experience I will go back again the food was amazing and very good service!!
Really cool spot. A bit confused when we got there at 630 for a predrinn at how empty it was, but once we met the bartender & had his creative drinks, we were sold. By 8pm the place was full, and did not disappoint. We loved all of our dishes and the all you can eat made us feel a bit like ballers ordering everything on the menu. Will be a new staple a lot for sure with friends in town!
It was Saturday, so we had the fixed-price 'Experience' . Food was great - very creative recipes. Tried a new wine on the recommendation of our waiter, and it was excellent. Service was prompt and mostly unobtrusive. Second time at Josie - won't be the last.
We had the best time at Cafe Josie! Our server was knowledgeable of menu, and encouraged us to try the best items on the menu. I loved the Experience menu. We will be back!
When we made our reservations we didn't know that there was a fixed menu for a fixed price on Friday and Saturday nights. The menu was your choice of tapas, as many as you wanted for one fixed price. The food was excellent. It was a fun interactive way to eat dinner. We had 4 at our table, so we tried a variety of different plates. We will be going again.
Best food on W 6th and maybe the best happy hour in town
Had dinner with a friend. We ordered 9 different tapas dishes. All were different taste treats and really well prepared—no disappointments. Service was excellent. Recommend for those would like to try something off the beaten path and different.
Loved loved loved! Will absolutely be back for “The Experience”. Such a great value and could not have been more pleased with the food. Brussel Sprouts are the BEST!
'The Experience' is definitely just that, and so worth it! We went for happy hour and enjoyed tasting almost the full menu. The food is prepared brilliantly and each dish has just the right sauce, seasoning, or accompaniment to make them perfect. The Brussels sprouts are a favorite of the family, but many other dishes are also superb! The brisket and the meatloaf were divine; the scallops and salmon delicious; the kale salad and goat cheese special were outstanding. And you must top all of that off with the crème brulee -- some of the best in town!
Beyond the food, the service is impeccable. We had Vincent, and he did everything to make sure our Experience was the best. Both professional and personable!
This is without a doubt our favorite place in Austin to dine!
This is such a good place. It's cozy and it is filled with people. The food is fabulous, each plate crafted to precision. The sauces hadn't split at all!
We enjoyed The Experience - and it was a great experience.
The food was excellent and the service superb - great timing when serving all of the different items we ordered. We will return soon.
We have been coming to Cafe Josie since they first opened. In the past month we have had two, 7 persons get-together. Both groups different personalities but the result was the same: The 45$ pre-fixe menu was a hit for everyone. There was a mix of foodies and "I'll eat anything put in front of me" types. Last Saturday, a good friend was with us who has developed award winning restaurants in NYC and Marfa. He was impressed. We won't stop coming back, so be warned Jonathan!
This was the find of the year for us. What a fantastic way to spend an evening dining out. The Experience allowed my wife and I to share several bites while also sampling things the other wouldn’t like. Our server was excellent as was the food and wine. Definitely put this on your must try list.
Fun pre-fix menu and such a great value! Restaurant could use more comfortable dining chairs - they were small wooden ones and not very comfortable.
Food was amazing. Selection was diverse. Band was great but a little loud.
So while this visit was off to a rocky start - there was a delay in getting our table although the time was past our reserved schedule - the experience was worth the extra wait. The service once we were seated was impeccable and the food, both the variety and quality, was outstanding. We chose the $45 experience with a taste of so many options and the endless servings that proved to not only be delicious but interesting as well. Our favorite was the bisque, not sure if it was for that night only or a daily staple, not to downplay any of the other delightful dishes, until we had the crème brulee for desert which was the absolute best I have ever tasted anywhere, including in France. I heartily recommend the wonderful restaurant for both the quality of the service, the ambience of what was once a carriage house, and the delicious meal that we had. Kudos.
Cafe Josie is my favorite restaurant in Austin. Has been since it opened. The Experience is a delicious way to dine and share the amazing flavors. The bacon onion jam on the mac and cheese is so good! The Brussel sprouts are the best in Austin.
