Had a party of 6, took an hour and half to get our dinner. Had to ask several times to get our water refilled. Horrible service. Was all our first time there and never ever going back. We have never experienced such terrible service. After waiting for so long, some items did not come out at all and when asked about them the server said “he forgot to ring it up”. Would not recommend

Very disappointed with server, Howard. He neglected to tell us specials which we heard being told to other tables. We would have liked to order a few of them
He made us feel like we were an annoyance when placing our order
What we did order was excellent though

Food is always good but the noise level was deafening. Our table had to yell to have a conversation. Despite asking several times the music was never lowered Thought this was a restaurant not a bar. Service was also terrible. Took 45 minutes to get our first course - salads! Worst experience I’ve ever had there

First Impression, Waiters appearance was disheveled and he had ink stains on his shirt, on the front and the sleeve. We were the first customers so absolutely no excuse for this.
Second Impression, he served Moscato which I had to send back because it was flat.
Third Impression, my date and I were clearly on a date - we were dressed well. We had reservations. The place was empty. Then a group of 10, with children, came in and were seated right next to us.
I had picatta, and the sauce was not cooked properly, I could still see the flour.

Josephine’s is a fabulous Italian Restaurant in Boca. They offer an all inclusive dinner very nicely priced at $31.95 which is a great value for great food. It is our new “go to” Boca Restaurant.

We have eaten here many times. The food is good and their summer menu is terrific value.
The only drawback if you want to have a quiet dinner, make sure you go on an evening that they do not have a singer. But if you like live entertainment then go when they do have a singer as the singer was great. Snapper oreganato delicioso!

Took an hour and a half to get a salad. Food was horrible. The waiter was nice and apologetic about how poor our experience was, but the owner is very obnoxious and rude with zero people skills. In my opinion this place should be shut down. Horrible experience

Dear Tawny, We tried our best on such a busy Mother's day to accommodate your special requests for non-menu items, when you indicated it was not to your liking, the owner specifically went to the kitchen to remedy your item. When we returned with your item 5 minutes later you and your party left. We would love to see you back.

I have been there many times.
But I have no plans to return.
I was there for Mother's Day.
After we placed our order, we waited 45 minutes to get our salad and soups.
I waited a long time to get my water glass refilled.
When we finished eating, one of our party had to find the waiter so that we could get the check.
The owner needed to be more aware of what was happening.

We enjoy going to the Wick theatre and a friend had recommended we try Josephine’s . The Ambiance and wait staff are terrific . The bread is.Not as good as Carpaccio’s Italian restaurant in Bal Harbour . The Caesar Saks was delicious and they have a nice wine selection . One of my party order Eggplant Rollatini as their main and loved it . Two of use shared the special of Branzini Almandine . One of us ate their portion and the other did not as she felt it was fresh frozen and is very particular about only earring fresh fish . The waiter noticed that the fish was not eaten and graciously removed the sharing charge . We felt that was very gracious . Next time we’ll try the pasta.

Have been here a few times.
Always wonderful. Just this time we were disappointed no entertainment, my fault for not checking. We traveled an hour in some heavy downpours, still we all had an exceptionally great night..our servers were friendly and excellent. Josephine, hostess owner, is a doll. Will return so will the folks we brought

Have been dining at Josephine’s for years and each time the experience is enjoyable . The food is consistently delicious and they are very accommodating about food modifications such as no salt. For dessert, I highly recommend the cheesecake. It is light and fluffy.

Service was inattentive, had to ask for water refits 3 times before i got it. Same with fork and knife. After appetizers they took our fork n knife and brought out salad, we asked 3 separate people to replace them. Veal chop hDa great mushroom sauce on it but was over cooked and dry. Swordfish was dry also.

Not a cut above. The chicken w/eggplant was overcooked. Probably because it was sliced too thin.

Food was average but due to the extremely poor service everything seemed off. Waiter had difficulty explaining the specials, taking the orders and being attentive to our needs. Waited over 15 minutes for the waiter to handle the bill. Very, very disappointing!

Food was adequate. Owner/hostess needs help turning over tables and getting customers seated promptly. She's over her head and barely interacts with customers or staff. Kitchen delivered appetizer to one diner and after 5+ minutes we needed to flag down server to search for other app. Everybody blames someone else. Whole staff looks unhappy. Not a welcoming place. We'll not return.

Soup was cold. Veal was fatty. Potatoes were undercooked. Vegetables were good. Service was excellent. The bread was stale.
Very expensive for the value. Would not recommend to my friends and I would never go back. My other friends felt the same way

Everyone in my party of 12 thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Josephine's and commented on the wonderful food. Several of my guests came from foreign countries and Josephine's surely proved that good Italian food can be found in Boca Raton, FL. As always, thank you for your attention, great food and wonderful service.
