Long Island Duck Al'Orange
Half a duck with orange grand marnier glaze
Lightly battered and sautéed in white wine, butter and lemon sauce
Great food at fair price
It's not fair to judge a place at this time but not a good showing at this time way below par for us .
The food is consistently great.
Phil was our wonderful server
I asked for my meal without any salt as I have high blood pressure issues. The server told me they could make a sauce for my bronzino of garlic, wine, and lemon with no salt. The servers attitude was as if he was rolling his eyes at my request. When the fish came out it was beyond salty. The server took it back and poured off the sauce rather than make me a new one. There was still sauce left in the plate and I couldn’t eat the potatoes or vegetables as they were salty. For $42 I expected my meal to be great. Certainly, I did not expect them to give me back my same meal. We have loved Josephines in the past and were greatly disappointed.
Food was very good and service. The singer was amazing. Very friendly crowd too.
We took the family and were presently surprised. It finds that delicate place between fine dining and a family restaurant. The night we went they had a Broadway quality singer. The food was perfect, Dover Sole was extraordinary. We will be back.
Service was very slow. After an hour, we got to eat. Salad was soggy. Calamari was soggy and tasteless. Filet Mignon was dry. We didn't finish dinner as my companion insisted we leave the place. However on the plus side, the ambiance was ok. The live entertainment was ok, the performer tried her best effort, but was out of sync.
Staff was rude and ruined the evening
Everything was top shelf - I look forward to going again.
It was the worse dining experience I have ever had
We had a 7.30 reservation and got there at 7.00 for cocktails
The hostess who I think was Josephine was what ever
At 7.30 we went to be sat down
She was still disinterested and put us in a small table next to the bar
Wanted to put us on a high top
I said I want a decent table and she said no and if I carry on I will not serve you
Sat at the table and the waiter finally came 15 minutes later and said want do you want to eat
No menu or anything
I said I want a menu and wine list
Waited another 10 minutes before we got a glass of wine
Then waited another 15 minutes for him to come back
We finally said we have had enough
Left our glass of wine and walked out
The hostess still uninterested and said waist ever
I have been here a number of times
Would never go back
I used to love Josephine's but the chef must have changed. The food and service were awful!
Veal Saltimbocca was not good as the veal was almost none existent, plus the little bit that was there was not tender. Plenty of spinach.
We have been going to Josephine's for 20 years and never a bad meal?
My wife's chicken Francesca was great
Our guests were happy.
I have been to this restaurant many times. When we got there this past Saturday they had very loud music that we were not expecting. The food was outstanding. Thankfully we had a table way in the back so
We were able to talk to the couple we were with. When we left we told the DJ/singer that he was great and he did not even acknowledge us. When we got to the front door Josephine the owner was not quite up to par. We said good night and thank you and she did not acknowledge us. She was too busy talking to friends at the high top instead of acknowledging her customers that just paid a $400.00 dinner bill. Disappointed with the ownership!!!!! Food was great though.
Horrible! I went there for Christmas dinner with my 11 year old daughter. I have been there many times over the last 10 years. Never with just my child. We usually have her step father with us. They put us in a small “out of the way” table and basically continued to ignore us from there. The appetizer was fine but my daughter ordered the grilled octopus which literally was charred black throughout and my lamb came out with all of the wrong side dishes. I pointed this to the runner who dropped it off at our table. He said he would come right back with the correct sides and replace my daughters charred uneatable octopus. 20 minutes later no one showed up at the table or checked on us. Meanwhile the ENTIRE time I was trying to get the attention of our waiter who continued to ignore us and go back to the same tables over and over again with couples multiple times! It’s a sin! I left! It’s Christmas so I still gave the waiter a nice tip even though it wasn’t deserved. The manager finally came over after first trying to push the waiter to handle bringing the check. Like I said, I’ve been going there for years, I’m amazed at how the service is COMPLETELY different when you are not dining with a man and seen as a single mother with her child. Believe I’ve been to this restaurant enough to notice a major difference. Disgusting and shame on them!!!!!!
The food was delicious. Some of the best Italian food in this area. Our server Andy was outstanding. He and the chef were extremely accommodating. I highly recommend Josephine’s.
What a beautiful restaurant! We were seated quickly, but because there was live music, we opted to sit outside where we could hear the music and also hear each other. The food was fabulous and our waiter a lovely fellow from Morocco, was also fabulous! Excited to return soon
My first visit was excellent my second visit not good ordered veal piccata was very tough could not eat it would not recommend it
It’s always good !
Excellent meal & service. We will definitely be back.
Loved the singer. Brought a whole new experience. We stayed longer, and drank more!
Food was great as usual. The yellow tail francese was perfect as usual and the Cod special was quite tasty. Good "pour" on the drinks as well.
The place is just beautiful inside and out. Having Franco there to entertain us was quite the surprise. Only downfall was on open table and their own website it showed a pre fixed menu with pricing and it was not offered to us . We needs to ask and server said he didn’t think it was in effect any longer. Josephine honored it for us but would recommend removing from site. Food was amazing as usual and felt very safe there.
Excellent restaurant for fine intimate dining!
Was Certainly very unexpected to have the entire restaurant room for our self my wife and I for a Birthday! very sorry to have this virus make your business so difficult..
Despite this situation..
We had wonderful evening..the service was outstanding..
The food was excellent...
we will back..
Thank you again to take care of us despite this difficult circumstances ..
It was a fun night and a fabulous meal.
We had a fabulous experience at Josephine's this past Saturday. Saturday's are precious to my wife and I as it is our "real" night out. It is so disappointing to receive a bad meal or service especially on a Saturday. We celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary and I must say the service was spot on but the veal parmigiana I had was simply the best I have ever had. I'm from NY and know Italian food as I have owned two Italian restaurants in NYC.
I highly recommend Josephine's. If you're looking for great food, great service within a beautiful atmosphere, you've found it!
The musical talent was incredible!
One of my favorites
The food, service and atmosphere are all A+. One of our favorite restaurants.
Very quiet because of the virus scare, but the tables were seated apart. The price for a very good three course meal was amazing. The drinks were plentiful and the waiter was anxious but helpful.
The most important thing is the food was great. It literally took 2 hours to get our food,however, they were quick with the bread, salad and drinks. Josephine came at the end and offered us drinks to try and compensate however, I prefer just quicker service. I will try one more time to see if it was a fluke or they really can’t keep up due the expansion of the restaurant.
Food was delicious, and the service was great! It is so nice to have music and love songs accompany a divine dinner! We would definitely recommend Josephine's for a date, for a special occasion, or for just because you want music with dinner.
Food. Not great. !! Liked the music
Delicious food, wonderful service!!! Can’t wait to go back!
Josephines as always is a great experience. Since moving to Delray five years ago I have visited this restaurant on multiple occasions and I’m never disappointed. Having lived in New York I have dined add some of the top restaurants in New York City had to offer. The evening was smooth And the way they’re very attentive. I had the duck and my wife had the three-course 34. 95 dinner specialPolo Josephine. The food was delicious as always and we will be back
Food is always good at Josephine's . Service was great and we all had a really fun evening. I would recommend Josephine's
Food was particularly delicious!
Service could be better. Everything else excellent
This was one of the worst dining experiences of my life. The waiter couldn’t have been more rude and unfortunately the food was barely edible.
After waiting for 15-20 minutes to even be greeted by our server, I asked they had blanton’s bourdon. The obnoxious response was “we have a full bar”. I said great.. I will have a blaton’s neat. Was served Jim Beam without being told the bar did not stock blantons
My wife and 2 other members of my party sent back their food. My wife ordered snapper Francese and the fish had an overpowering fishy smell.. I took a bite and had to spit it out. The replacement dish was also sent back.
The hostess (The owner from what I understand) came to our table to see if she could help after our numerous complaints. She was too drunk to provide any meaningful assistance.
I will never come back and I don’t even know how this place is still in business
The service was horrible, the waiter never came back to the table. The food was cold and in the end the manager instead of apologizing, just said that she would buy us an after dinner drink.
Our friends and us will never ever go back to there. We were not looking for a free meal but really!!!
She did not try to rectify the problem or address the problem.
