About the restaurant
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.

One of the nicest establishments in Lancaster. I have been to the upstairs bar several times for a casual cocktail and happy hour. Love the decor. This was our first time in the formal dining room. Very classily decorated. We were celebrating my husband's birthday, and when we arrived to our table there was a special birthday place card with his name on it. Great food and atmosphere for a special occasion. I would recommend reservations any day of the week. No reservations available in the bars, I found out. Excellent customer service. Excellent cocktails.

The historic structure dates back more than 100 years and was once used as a Speakeasy before opening officially as a restaurant in 1933, after the Repeal of Prohibition.

The rooftop dining is really fun and enjoyable. I would suggest the tables should have an umbrellas to shade some of the sunshine.
