Still a fine restaurant, but on a noisy street
This is the go-to upscale restaurant in Flagstaff. The menu has inventive meal options and the wine list is extensive. We had dinner in the outside patio one evening and lunch on another day in the modest-sized enclosed patio that is adjacent. In both venues,...More ... read more

We arrived early, were seated promptly, enjoyed great service from our wait person and had a wonderful meal.  The menu is interesting and invites one to try something new or different.  Comfortable atmosphere, and  quiet enough to have a conversation.  We will definitely return to Josephine's again.  Carol L.

Josephine's has been a reliable restaurant for us for over a dozen years but let us down this last visit.  The service was very good, as usual.  The overall experience was good but the food was somewhat disappointing.   Ceasar salad tasted like a prepared dressing, not fresh, and mixing Arugula with Romain is a mistake, makes it limp ... read more

So, one of the best meals, service a locales we have ever experienced.  Not to be obnoxious, but in 60 years we have lived everywhere from midtown Manhattan to Scottsdale, and this ranks with the best. If you haven't been, just do it!

A great place to eat when in Flagstaff. I eat gluten-free and Paleo and do my best to find restaurants with good quality food when eating out. Josephine's fits the bill. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is quaint and cozy and the service is excellent.

Everything was good...the beer, the service, the food. My only issue is the noise.

These surfaces are an acoustic nightmare when th ... read more

Unique home makes a nice setting for this upscale restaurant. Appetizers were ordinary fare. However, the main courses (bacon wrapped filet and prosciutto wrapped chicken) were well worth the regrettablly long wait due to an inattentive waitress. The rest of staff saves Josephine's from a two star rating.
