The restaurant is very pretty and smaller than i thought. The food was good; the service was good. My only dislike was that the bar crowd in the restaurant, event hough there was a frosted glass partition, was extremely loud.

The food, service and ambience of Josephine's was excellent. The recorded and live music on the evening of October 27th was excruciatingly loud. After our desserts, we wanted to linger awhile, but ended up having to shout at each other to be heard. The live musician on nOctober 27th was much too loud and ruined the ambience of the restaurant for us. I also suggest to soften the recorded big band music as well.

It must have been an off night (early Tuesday evening) as it wasn’t full as it usually is. The service was excellent, the food delicious, the live music was appropriately background yet entertaining. Josephine’s never disappoints.

It was not crowded since this is August in Florida. Our waiter Andy was the best. Our food was delicious and exactly as ordered. The evening entertainment was also enjoyable. We have been here many times and will continue to make it one of our favorite local restaurants.

The restaurant is always a good value
We had an early reservation so the restaurant was quiet
The waiter took our drink order and our dinner order
As we were finishing our appetizers the dinner was served
That didn't give us time between courses
Then the music which is great started and was so loud we couldn't hear each other speak
The music was live by the way but better for after dinner
But we had good food and a good time

2nd Time here and , while the food was very good last time, it was even better this time. I know it's been around for awhile but it will not dissappoint! My Mom loves this place and we took her when my daughter was in town. We were a party of 4 each time and everyone loved the food. The Breaded Veal Chop, the Eggplant parmigiana, Veal Scallopini and not sure of the 4th dish but everyone was very happy.
We will be back:)

We dined with another couple. The Hostess and wait staff were very welcoming and friendly.
The service was very slow, but the food did make up for it.
A bit pricy, but for a special occasion it's a great choice!
We would all definitely eat there again.

While Josephine's has usually been our go-to choice to take friends, this time we were overly disappointed. The food was mediocre at best and the service quality way less. ( the waiter never even came over to ask how our meals were. If he had, I would have returned my duck as it was way too well done and totally tasteless. I have always ordered the duck special in the past. )
While our friends enjoyed their meals, we did not!! We will probably wait quite a while before returning, if we ever do.

We have eaten at this restaurant several times. I do not plan to go back. The room is very dark. If you go, be sure to bring a flashlight. Our waiter brought our appetizers so quickly that we hadn't finished our cocktails yet. Entrees were served quickly too. The portions were sizable.The desserts - chocolate mouse or cannoli, were dumped in front of us soon after. A definite feeling of being rushed. The food was bland and underseasoned. Dessert portions were small and not house-made. The salad was not chilled, the lettuce leaves were not well trimmed. The prosecco was not quite cold enough. There was a singer who was well received by the other diners, a mostly older crowd. The $35 menu was okay since there was entertainment.

The round table for 8 is 2 smaller round tables pushed together to form an uncomfortable mishmash with someone having to straddle 2 tables.

We have been clients of Josephine's for years and have never been disappointed. We had a
birthday party there and it was great. Josephine is always in the restaurant to greet her guests,
