The Story of Josephine’s
The story of Josephine’s begins during our executive chef Daniel LeBoon’s childhood. At eight years old, working for his father’s catering company, Daniel discovered a passion for food. This love — and undeniable talent — saw him intern at Philadelphia’s prestigious Le Bec-Fin. He went on to work in Paris at the venerable Hotel Vernet working under the renowned chef’s Alain Solvere and Alain Ducasse. In 2004, Daniel purchased Josephine’s in Marietta and developed an extremely loyal following based on the combination of great food, great atmosphere and great hospitality. Although Josephine’s closed in 2011, the name and the experiences are fondly remembered by countless people.

    Such a great experience, from the moment we walked in! The decor is gorgeous. We felt like we were worlds away from home. Every person we met was friendly and professional, especially our server Daniel. The chef was more than happy to accommodate a friend's special dietary needs. All of the food was delicious - I had the steak and cake. I highly recommend it! The steak melted in my mouth. We also had dessert that was incredible (peanut butter chocolate and a lemon meringue.)

    We had the absolute best experience for a restaurant! They had the left side of the menu with the name on wishing me a great experience for my birthday! Our waiter, Zach, was very attentive to our every need. He answered questions about the menu with very good knowledge. GREAT EXPERIENCE would definitely recommend!

    This is a truly gorgeous, memorable restaurant. The owner’s taste in decor is magnificent. Our waiter Zach was perfect in every way. The support staff - very efficient and attentive. Menu is incredibly imaginative, pianist superb. Friendly suggestion: if you receive a reservation from out of town, especially older people, perhaps kindly inform them about where to park and that the restaurant is in the lower level. I saw several older people struggling down the steps the night we were there. But all in all this is a wonderful place for a special occasion.

    The best!!!! Two of us couples were celebrating anniversaries. The restaurant called the day before to ask if we had a special occasion, and asked the names of the people celebrating. We were pleasantly surprised to see personalized menus with our names, which was the beginning of a spectacular evening!! Bernie was our server, and he couldn’t have been more enjoyable and accommodating! We were seated on the stage and Joe and the piano player played all our requests….how memorable! The meal was beyond words and the atmosphere is second to none….can’t wait to come back!!!

    We were celebrating my parents birthdays and wanted it to be special. The staff made sure to prepare a menu tailored specifically to my parents. From the moment we walked in we felt this was more about an experience of dinning rather than eating food. Having grown up in Lanc, I am thankful for this gem and will be recommending Josephines to many people.

    Server was over the top. Just too gushy. I ordered duck. He returned to the table and said I should order the crab cake, so I did. He didn’t explain why. Prices are very high. Food was good, a little salty.

There was also the fetching touch written inside our menus Happy Birthday, Mark! We plan to be back, and also to recommend to a few friends to dine at Josephine"s too. Thank you so much for making our dining an enjoyable experience !

    We celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary at Jospehine's so we wanted a special place. From the moment we walked in we were greeted warmly and experienced excellent service by the hostess and that continued with our waiter, Zachary. Our menu was personalized with our names and a special greeting. The food was unique and savory. 3 different fresh homemade breads and homemade desserts rounded out the evening. Thanks for a wonderful wedding anniversary! Joe and Megan
