About the restaurant
The Story of Josephine’s
The story of Josephine’s begins during our executive chef Daniel LeBoon’s childhood. At eight years old, working for his father’s catering company, Daniel discovered a passion for food. This love — and undeniable talent — saw him intern at Philadelphia’s prestigious Le Bec-Fin. He went on to work in Paris at the venerable Hotel Vernet working under the renowned chef’s Alain Solvere and Alain Ducasse. In 2004, Daniel purchased Josephine’s in Marietta and developed an extremely loyal following based on the combination of great food, great atmosphere and great hospitality. Although Josephine’s closed in 2011, the name and the experiences are fondly remembered by countless people.

: **Title: A Culinary Gem in the Heart of the City!** I recently had the pleasure of dining at Josephine's, and it was an experience to remember. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted with warm smiles and a cozy ambiance that set the tone for the evening. The menu is a delightful blend of classic and innovative dishes, showcasing the chef's creativity and dedication to quality. We started with the truffle fries, which were perfectly crispy and seasoned to perfection. The main courses did not disappoint either; the seared scallops were cooked to perfection, and the filet mignon was tender and flavorful, melting in our mouths with every bite. What truly sets Josephine's apart is the attention to detail and impeccable service. Our server was knowledgeable, attentive, and genuinely passionate about the menu, providing excellent recommendations and ensuring our glasses were never empty. The dessert selection is not to be missed. We indulged in the chocolate lava cake, which was an indulgent, gooey delight, and the homemade tiramisu, which was the perfect ending to a fabulous meal. Josephine's also boasts an impressive wine list, offering a wide variety of selections that pair beautifully with the dishes. The sommelier helped us choose the perfect wine to complement our meal, adding an extra touch of sophistication to the evening. In summary, Josephine's is a culinary gem that excels in every aspect, from the ambiance and service to the outstanding food and wine. Whether for a romantic dinner, a family celebration, or a night out with friends, Josephine's is the place to go. Highly recommended! ---

Came here to celebrate my husband’s 50th birthday as we were in the area. It was absolutely perfect. Our server Lindsay was amazing in every way! We enjoyed the calamari appetizer, short ribs, salmon, and gnocchi. For dessert we had the PB bread pudding and Rocher. The lovely touch was the card at the table acknowledging the celebration. I highly recommend The Belvedere and will definitely return!!!
