The food was amazing!
Always lovely in every way!
We sat outside- it’s so pretty. Love the ambiance. I feel like the brunch menu could have more options- have been there twice and nothing really jumps out. Food quality is good. Drinks were good. Service was also good- not super friendly, but timely and pleasant. Would come back for the atmosphere more than anything.
Awesome place, delicious food and outstanding service! Highly recommend
Great as always!
Consistently excellent with charming atmosphere. love sitting outside.
The Monday steak frites night is a delicious and wonderful deal. The outdoor seating makes it a lovely spot for dates or to catch up with a smaller group. The house wines weren't great which is a shame because the steak frites menu includes house wine; however, you can still order alternative drinks from the regular menu.
Incredible food with a great atmosphere
The hamburger was great. Fries were cold. Service was luke warm.
Dined on Monday evening; pre fixe menu of Steak & Frites with a DJ working the patio. Watermelon gazpacho starter was excellent & the filet mignon was done perfectly. The frites (aka fries) is where they dropped the ball. They could have been so great but instead were soft & not crispy or hot. More like they’d been under a heat lamp a bit too long. Hot, crispy frites with a moist interior is how it should be! So close. The music was a little loud but I enjoyed the selection & was dining alone so it didn’t bother me. I really like the place & noticed a dog on the patio. Dog friendly place will bring me back! Not to forget, the bar and table service was great.
We had a wonderful evening at Josephine House. CoVid protocols were in place and very effective. The food and the service were both exceptional. We will be back the next time we are in Austin.
Sat outside in the front lawn watching the world go by. Excellent food and service. It appeared that coronavirus protocols were being met.
I love Josephine House and they are doing such a wonderful job staying open for the public while making their guests feel safe during the pandemic adjustments. We started it off with two espresso martinis and the peaches & brie and we both got the burger. Everything was absolutely delicious but I wish the portion size for the peaches and brie was a little bigger for the price. Definitely worth going and enjoying!
This place is all hype. The waiter Checked on us once and only saw her when it was time to cash out. Never got a refill on water or your drinks .
Delicious and very comfortable in outdoor seating. Could use an extra fan or two for the 100+degree heat days over the next couple of months. :)
Cute little neighborhood house that's been converted into a restaurant. The atmosphere is charming, service good and delicious food!
Nice outdoor seating. Did get a little bit dark during our time there.
Our dinner at Josephine House was excellent. The only draw back is that we ate outside and it was somewhat hot. If we were under their mist it would have been fine. The food and drinks were terrific. We will go back!
The design of this restaurant could not be more beautiful, quaint, and charming. The egg salad tartine. the vegan blueberry bread, the coffee are delicious. The maitre’d/manager could not be more professional, delightful, and personable. My only criticism is the service. I’ve worked in the industry and know when waiters are being passive aggressive. All I ask really is to be knowledgeable and personable and check back to see if I am enjoying the meal, just once. Just asking makes all the difference in the world. I’m sorry to say that wasn’t done. I adored the overall vibe and just think all this effort deserves better table service.
Josephine's House is a great lunch and late lunch restaurant with outstanding salads, entries, and desserts. My wife and I agree that their shrimp and grits are simply the best. Great food, service and ambience make it hard to get reservations, so book early and enjoy.
Always wonderful, I appreciate the fresh juices
So many wonderful flavors. Starter of peaches and brie, ricotta and green salad. Pork chop was perfect and a taste or two of roasted watermelon gazpacho from my partner divine. Salted caramel pudding dessert amazing. One of the best experiences ever from start to finish.
A Creative menu with quietly attentive service. Charming cottage with nooks and corners to enjoy life with great food.
I have been wanting to try Josephine House for years & it was worth the wait! The staff is amazing, friendly, courteous and attentive. Our breakfast was absolutely tasty. The apple greens juice tasted as good as described, perfect mixture of sweet and spice without a overpowering greens taste like so many other places. Started with a peach cinnamon roll. The garnish peaches were perfectly softened, nice crust on the outside, super soft on the inside and the icing, oh my, made with real butter and, although not something I usually like, was like eating a cloud. Their signature lemon ricotta pancakes were so sinfully good and a good serving of 4....my partner could not finish them after eating most of the cinnamon roll. My avocado toast was a perfect combination of crunchy toast, ample avocado and the sunny side up egg set it off. An amazing meal at an amazing price. Parking is my only complaint but, evethe little stroll was worth it!!
It was so nice to get out to Josephine House for steak night. The staff was very professional, as always, and maintained social distancing. We were spaced out outside and didn’t have anyone near us. It was really nice to go have a “normal” evening.
It was wonderful!
College send off
We wanted to celebrated our 2 month anniversary and this was our first time being out to a sit down dinner together since this crazy pandemic began. We felt so safe at Josephine’s and the outdoor patio was beautiful and cozy! I ordered the shrimp and grits and my husband got the orichiette with sausage and broccolini. Both were delicious and the portion size was great! Well worth the price.
Sat outside. Very pleasant and great food along with outstanding service
Tranquil outdoor breakfast..........staff is adhering to COVID-19 guidelines. I felt completely comfortable while there.
Monday was steak night with a lovely 3 course meal. There was a DJ playing great chill tunes. It was truly an ideal date in Austin!
Wonderful spot for brunch!
Great food and customer service!!
Loved it! Perfect outdoor brunch on a shaded patio. Very pleasant. Each and every food item was perfectly delicious.
Food was delicious and great ambiance highly recommended for late dinner outside
We had the shrimp and grits and the huevos rancheros and both we excellent. Highly recommend both.
Always fresh, great drinks and great service!
I had been dying to try this place for months, finally made a reservation and it did not disappoint! Even my husband loved it, finishing his huevos rancheros plus half my pancakes! The grapefuit cooler was refreshing and the Americano was a perfect end to our romantic brunch date.
Was a little surprised to see service so inattentive. I made a reservation, noted it was for a special occasion, and a requested table outside. After being seated outside next to the grill at a 6-top(???),we were moved to a great table on the lawn. But from there the service was fairly uneven at best, inattentive at worst - late drinks, VERY late dessert (on a prix-fixe meal at closing(???), etc. The food was pretty good (though expectedly pricey) and the ambience and music were great.
