The Korean BBQ beef appetizer - fantastically delicious and larger than I would have thought - for me - could have been a meal. It is one of those selections that will make it hard to go back and move away from ordering that each time! My husband had the filet and I had the salmon - each was a bit overcooked - the tasty nonetheless! We did indulge in desert and shared the donut holes - yes, also two thumbs up! We will be happily returning! :)

Went for Father's Day Brunch which was served as a buffet. Food Selection was very good and delicious. Can't wait to go back and try the regular menu Brunch.

The food is very good at lunch. The salads are exceptional. One of us had a hamburger that looked good as well. It is a nice place for a ladies' lunch.

While visiting friends in Flagstaff we wanted to treat our hosts to a nice dinner. I made the reservation on Open Table and also phoned the restaurant to confirm our reservation for eight. I did receive a return phone call from the restaurant confirming the reservation, but when we arrived we waited for the table to be prepared.
We wished to order the Chateau Neuf de Pape wine on the wine list, but they did not have it.
Five of us ordered the sea bass special at a cost of $35.00 each. The fish was overcooked on each. Others in the party ordered the filet, medallions and chicken which were good.
Overall we were disappointed in the food for the price.

My boyfriend and I came here to celebrate his birthday, which I noted in the "special notes" section in my Open Table reservation. However, it went unacknowledged as if it were just another dinner out. Not a "happy birthday," not a special card, nor a candle in the dessert. Other places have done small gestures as this, but not Josephine's. I was disappointed.

Besides the event being ignored, the little room we were in (only 3 tables) was chilly and loud. My boyfriend's filet mignon dinner was wonderful, my chicken dish was merely okay. The chicken was on the dry side, the beets seemed over-roasted and the butternut squash risotto seemed overdone. Thank goodness the creme brulee (my boyfriend's favorite dessert) was a hit.

The server seemed nice and knew the menu well.

We both selected the 3-course tasting menu, but were told not to select our dessert course until after dinner (the tasting menu included two uninspired desserts). The food we had was both interesting and tasty. Once we finished the first two courses we were presented with an expanded dessert menu that didn't include either of the desserts we'd seen on the tasting menu. The waiter made some recommendations and we made our choices. When the bill arrived we found that we were billed the full amount for the desserts, as well as the full amount for what turned out to be a 2-course tasting menu... not quite the value it initially appeared to be! In our opinion the waiter should have been clear about the desserts instead of doing a bait and switch.

Hello, over all I was dissapointed. I had written a note in the reservation that it was my girlfriends 21st birthday. The note was overlooked and nothing about it being her birthday was addressed. The noise level was high. Other than that we enjoyed the experience.

What a delightful dinner - we are still talking about it two weeks later. The server was attentive and knowledgeable, the food was amazing and fairly priced. Would go back without hesitation.

One of the best steaks I've ever had. The filet mignon was very delicious. Whatever the sauce that was on it, was to die for! Two thumbs up! I'll be back just to have it again!

This was our first experience at Josephine's and we were VERY impressed. Bart, our waiter, was wonderful. Our table tried the salmon, the chicken, and the filet mignon. All cooked perfectly and flavors were spot on. We had a 5 year old with us and he was delighted that they served Kraft mac & cheese! It was my husband's birthday and we were placed in a small dining room with 3 tables. When they brought dessert out for my husband I began to sing happy birthday and the other tables joined. Came to find out that the table next to us was the mayor of Flagstaff and his party. My husband can now say the Mayor sang to him on his birthday!

My girlfriend and I decided last minute to go out to eat, and decided to give Josephine's a try. I wanted to go somewhere I could wear my fleece pants and hoodie since it was cold outside, and although I did feel a little under-dressed when I got there, the wait staff still seated us and treated us wonderfully. I had a Caesar Salad and Bacon Wrapped Filet, and the waiter recommended a Spanish Red Wine that perfectly complemented the meal. My girlfriend had the baked brie and the champagne vinaigrette salad with a glass of the hibiscus bellini which was "insanely delicious" she says. For dessert we had the Italian Donuts, I cannot remember what they were called but they were like dressed-up beignets and delicious. I definitely plan on coming here again, this will be one of our special date-night places!

Being part-time residence of Flagstaff, we have frequented Josephine many occasions. But it has been spiraling down the last few times we have been there.Service was dreadful; the server never poured our wine after opening it, even though there were two other tables occupied at the time. And the food was lousy, limp, overlooked vegetables and the NY strip steak was fatty and sinewy despite its inflated price. Once the server brought us our dessert the entire staff turned off lights in the kitchen and adjoining dining rooms. Like "Get out...We want to go home!" It was only 8:30pm.

I have been driving past Josephines for years and not really noticed it, and then I saw it on Open Table, stopped with my family, had a meal and loved it. Had another meal with my family there again, and loved that too. Great services and great food. Nice decor too. Its a very convenient location on the way to the Grand Canyon and Arizona Snowbowl. When leaving these areas we booked on Open Table and arrived to find our table waiting. A very high standard of food was a pleasant surprise, considering its easy access within Flagstaff.
