The best outdoor dining experience I have had since COVID started. And hands down the most delicious gazpacho I have ever had. Thank you for a nice late lunch.

We had a fabulous meal at Joselito. We went on a Saturday evening with friends and we were not disappointed by the food. We have been going to Joselito for years now and have always loved the food but we have had one or two bad experiences.
We tried a variety of dishes and they were all superb in particular the Arroz caldoso con mariscos and the Duck.
We will be going back soon again.

I enjoyed every. single. course! My friend and I dined at Joselito as part of Summer Restaurant Week, seated inside by the window. My meal included: ajo blanco malagueno, sardina asada, uvas; boquerones fritos en adobo; and bucatini con Almejas, espuna de abarino. The service was excellent -- the hostess addressed me by my name every time. I'll definitely bring more people back here!

Because of the covid-19 problem we ate outside. That was very pleasant but not quite so nice as seating inside at Joselito. As always the food and hospitality were wonderful.

Joselito reminded us of time spend on the Costa del Sol. Deep-fried boquerones, jamón, manchego, and those sorts of tapas. We've been several times and everything is always tasty and authentic.

The food was absolutely delicious and the service was great. I would suggest, however, that if you eat outdoors, you bring bug spray. Lots of little bugs biting.

This was our first dinner out in 4 months, and we selected Joselito's to celebrate a special occasion. We ate outside, the staff did a very nice job with cleaning, social distancing, masks, etc. The food and service were excellent, loved the codfish fritters, sangria, tuna crudo, duck breast, gazpacho, and rice pudding. We hope that many customers will discover or rediscover this charming taste of Spain.

Joselito is, by far, our favorite Spanish restaurant, our “go to” place for special occasions, and to take out-of-town visitors. For the first time since our stay-at-home journey started in March 13, on June 24 we ventured out for a birthday celebration. We knew Joselito’s was where we had to go. Our meal, as always, was amazing, the sparkling sangria was delicious, and the staff was terrific. Everything about our experience had a perfect balance of social distancing and sanitizing, without interfering with our meal. We look forward to a return visit soon!
