The experience menu was amazing. Loved the ability to be able to pick and choose anything we wanted to eat at a fix price. The service was great, the ambiance was great. My only desire is for the parking situation to improve. There isn't a lot of parking reserved for the restaurant so I had to drive around for sometime before finding street parking

Case Jose is remarkable both for dinner and brunch, - the atmosphere, service, and in particular the amazing cuisine, make a delightful experience to meet friends, or for a date.

Cafe Josie is so awesome. I've been twice -- once for the dinner experience on a date (super romantic) and once for the Sunday brunch experience with friends. The food, atmosphere and service is all amazing.

Excellent find! We came for the brunch prix fixe "experience", and it exceeded our expectations. The food was inventive, beautifully presented, and delicious! The small plates allowed us to have a few bites of everything, before going backand ordering seconds of our favorites. Next time I am in Austin I will definitely be back.

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.

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.

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!
