Outstanding!
Excellent value, amazing taste, large portions, charming restaurant! Our first visit here and loved it! Recommend eating outside if weather permits as we originally started inside but small group near us very loud and we asked to be moved to an outside table.

We highly recommend this restaurant. We ordered Crabcakes for an appetizer. They were perfectly seasoned and had a delicious sauce drizzled over the top. It was a beautiful presentation. My husband had the pork Oso Buco. The meet was so tender that it easily fell off the bone. The presentation was beautiful with deliciously seasoned ... read more

Watch your bill
Ate there twice and enjoyed both times. Great food and service. But, we were charged $18/glass for Pinot Grigio! After pointing this out, we were immediately refunded 50% of the wine bill. Shouldn't have happened and makes you wonder.

Great food but a bit pricey
Our food was very good and the service was excellent but if I were in the area again, I would probably look for something a little different and with a little more local offerings.

The service was very good and the food was good but had a couple of issues. We ordered the crab cake appetizer and it was literally smashed as thin as a pancake albeit good in flavor. I ordered the medium rare filet which came out medium well and I had to send it back. They immediately fixed that issue and brought me a new filet fair ... read more

The food was good, but for me a little expensive. The restaurant is in a historic house right on the way to the Grand canyon. The seating was tight, not cozy. Service was good and our waiter had a good sense of humour.

I give it 4 stars because the atmosphere is relaxing and the food is better than average. Our dishes were not served hot but warm enough to eat, but disappointing due to this aspect. The wait Staff lacks fine dining training, but this is Flagstaff and that is typical for even the best restaurants here. Josephine's has potential to ea ... read more

There's something special about sitting on a historic patio, mid-morning, sipping a mimosa and feeling a cool summer breeze. Josephine's patio is unlike most in that it is the front porch of a historic, vine covered home. While they've got the cozy home feeling going for them, the food is way beyond anything coming out of my kitchen.

The atmosphere of this place is very cute - outdoor seating with twinkle lights and beautiful greenery. However, the food was sub-par, especially for the price.
