Loved the food and wine. We had crab cakes and our friends had short ribs. The hummus appetizer was good and the chocolate lava cake for desert was amazing. Great chefs!

This has been my favorite and my family’s best place to eat in Flagstaff, the food is amazing no matter what you get. The service is fantastic, we go for Breakfast and lunch but recently we went for dinner and it was amazing. It is a well organized kitchen and restrooms are super clean. We’ll see you soon Josephines!

The food was good. Soup was only warm, where are the table cloths!? It felt like a noisy dinner with loudish music, lots of noise, lights on high.. crab cakes did not taste like crab. Service good enough..

Great food and an accommodating staff
We went to Josephine's after driving 7+ hours from home to Flagstaff to visit family. No previous experience in Flagstaff, so we didn't know to make reservations. It was Monday night, so we didn't think places would be that busy. The host said he could squeeze us in but we "only" had 2.5 hours before he needed the table. That was fin ... read more

Amazing food and a true culinary delight! There are few restaurants in Flagstaff that provide a sit down meal in a Unique and customer friendly, upscale atmosphere. The history of the property is quite interesting and every time we've made reservations we have thoroughly enjoyed the food and service! You will love it!

We knew we wanted to travel to Flagstaff for Christmas, but we had no idea where we would eat Christmas dinner. This is our very first Christmas not being with family, at a familiar home, eating familiar food. We were so fortunate to secure a reservation at Josephines for Christmas Day. We were greeted with warmth and holiday spirit.

Exceptional - Josephine’s is a small establishment with indoor and outdoor seating. Cozy might best describe it. Service was fantastic and somewhat shockingly fast. We had salads to start. Main dishes included Bacon Wrapped Filet & Mac Cheese with Diablo Shrimp. All fantastic.
