Wonderful service. Delicious food to suit everyone even my picky MIL who doesn’t get too adventurous with food but thought the snapper with sofrito was delicious.
It was a little loud inside but the food was excellent!
Service was sweet, but very slow. Also, the flies were terrible outside. Hard to eat our food.
Food is delicious. Highly recommend huvos rancheros @ nutella morning bun
Great time. Hostess and waitress were terrific!!!!
Super delicious! We really loved their nutella buns and the fruit plate. Also the pancakes were great! We loved going for breakfast. ALSO get their orange juice! Delicious and fresh!!!!!!
Fantastic restaurant, with a great vibe. Sat outside on a warm summer night, but was still able to stay cool with a combination of fans and overhead covers. Cant wait to go back!
I had a great lunch with an old friend. Our service was wonderful, our salads were delicious. Our only complaint was the flies. It was distracting and not appetizing and I am hopeful this amazing restaurant can come up with a fix for that. I have seen little spinning things on tables at other establishments with the same issue.
Had a party of 12 for a business lunch and worked with the staff to reserve a beautiful space on the patio! Was hard to find anywhere in town willing to accommodate. Food was incredible and ambiance is lovely. Our server Josh was phenomenal and had quick recommendations for everyone, including an amazing selection of wine.
First time we’ve been there for brunch. We’ll definitely go back!
Service was very good, though not excellent. The pancakes were much sweeter than I remember, and not quite as good.
This place was amazing. The reviews and pictures and the wonderful experiences we have had at their other concepts is what brought us here. Once we got there, we were a little disappointed in the variety of options on the menu. We selected an app and two entrees. Once we got the food though, we were blown away. What seemed like standard Texas menu choices turned out to be a thoughtful and expertly executed and interesting food. We will be back. Completely blown away by the food, simple, clean, elegant, delicious!
LOVE Josephine House. Will become a staple Friday night dinner spot.
We had a lovely brunch at Josephine house. Our table and food were great. Overall a really nice experience.
We’ve been a fan of Josephine house for years and when we can get a reservation these days we are happy and excited to get back on the deck. Would love to see some new items on the menu now and again but it’s always a wonderful treat.
Parking can be a challenge but food and drinks were delicious! Great intimate date night location
I love this place. The food, drinks, and treats are delicious and the ambiance is stylish yet comfortable. However, I recently ate brunch there and there were so many flies it was hard to talk and eat. We both had to keep swatting with our hands for an hour.
Little too hot to sit outdoors ..need fans or misters ? They treated us to a class of champagne as we had a special occasion. Music a tad too loud outdoors...food excellent ..enjoyed cucumber salad and snapper . White wine, husband had the rice chicken bowl. Parking is not easy here.. so plan ahead , walk or uber . Service great until check time then we got forgotten a little . Thank you for a nice dinner
I had a wonderful work lunch here with my colleagues. The ambiance and food were outstanding and the service by Mel was warm and perfect. The egg salad tartine will haunt my dreams!
Steak Frites Nights is one of my favorites at Josephine house. Nicole, our server, was fantastic and very attentive. My only complaint would be the four of us ordered medium rare filets and they all came out well done.
Adorable place! Excellent food, friendly service. Perfect spot for brunch. Highly recommend!
Outside seating was so pleasant. I took my father here and he’s a big foodie - he enjoyed it SO MUCH. Would highly recommend for birthdays or special occasions and you can bring your adult family members. The waitress was so knowledgeable and friendly. LOVED it!
so great! excellent service delicious food
The food was VERY mediocre for quite a lot of money.
Love Josephine House! Had a late lunch and signature cocktails with my old high school friend from Louisiana. I had taken her here before, and she requested to come back! Love the outdoor dining. We had so much fun catching up and enjoying the wonderful chopped salad and drinks with wonderful service! Have loved JH from day one, and it is always a such a joy!
Really loved that we can make reservations for outside. We are still hesitant to eat inside so being able to do that was so nice.
We had a nice table and an excellent server.
Drinks and snacks were excellent.
Even though it was raining, we were still able to sit outside in one of their little alcoves and stayed completely dry - it was actually a fun way to dine! It was a deliciously perfect meal and they made my birthday brunch extra special with a tasty treat to help celebrate. Can’t wait to visit again soon!!
We ate outside here on a drizzly day. The hostess said that she would try to bring a second umbrella to cover the other half of our table. Throughout our meal, there were empty tables with umbrellas at all of them. There also appeared to be another table that was fully covered. The waiter said we would not be able to have a second umbrella, so one of our diners was fairly wet through much of the meal. The waiter was unfriendly throughout the course of the meal, which was intended to be a special brunch for an out of town guest. We were finished and out the door in 40 minutes. I have loved this restaurant in the past, but will not be back.
Love the setting, service and I do love Jeffrey's. Had been wanting to try Josephine's house for awhile. I loved my redfish; husband's beef, daughter's steak frittes were underwhelming. I can honestly say, they were very bland frittes. Shaved fennel as the sides was "meh" as well. A bit lazy, in my opinion. I love fennel, but feel there should have been something to it. Beet salad was beautiful to behold, tasty, and I would suggest that they make the option to serve for 2 or 4. It is TINY. Mother's orecchiette was good, served with shrimp done nicely.
I've heard breakfast is very good. I'll come back to try sometime. Hoping this was just an off night.
We specifically went for the Steak & Frites night as we had heard so much about it. We had to reserve two months in advance so my expectations of the food and service were high. Overall, the steak itself was ok and lacked a little flavor but still good. I was disappointed in the wine and desserts (they come with the pre-course meal). For what you pay for the meal they could step up the quality a bit. The place itself is very cute and if you get the chance definitely sit outside (as long as it is not near the fire pit....you will get smoked out and leave smelling like it).
I've been coming to steak night for years! Great food for the price and bottomless wine ;)
I've said this for years... my only complaint is the fries are always stale, cold, or hard. Again, I'm not here for fries. The filet is fabulous!
Don't forget to head next door to their sister restaurant, Jefferys for all-night happy hour in their lounge, it's a great nightcap.
Favorite spot in Austin for brunch.
Great food and ambiance. Would visit again and recommend to others.
I felt I was in Mom's kitchen just outside the porch eating breakfast. Love the quaintness of Josephine House.
Excellent service, experience and food! Great experience
Our foursome arrived on time. Our table was not available. They asked us to order drinks and stand outside until the table opened, which was fine. We waited about 25 minutes. Had a nice dinner. Good service. Until he collected our plates and said, "I would normally offer dessert, but the next guests are waiting for this table" and brought the check. Sometimes when I make a reservation, I'm told we have a 2.5 hour limit. But here they first made us wait, and then made us leave, and never said in advance there was a limit. We will not return.
