This is a nice italian restaurant. The service was excellent. The food was very good. My caesar salad was very good, the bread came out piping hot, and my dinner of scallops, shrimp over pasta was delightful. The service was excellent.

Went with friends to Josephines for Dinner and the Spanky and Dinos Show. Josephine's summer three course menu is a real bargain @ $29.95. Our table selection: Appetizers - escargot scampi, clams casino, eggplant rollatini. Entrees - Tuscan Trio, Veal Principesa and Lamb Shank. Desert - Cheesecake. All of the courses were excellent and the service was also very good.... More

Main dishes were branzino, chicken franchese, fettuccini, veal chop and a chicken with sausage dish were all tasty. The dessert was ricotta cheese cake with fresh coffee and... More

Always good continental food. Summer dining menu a great buy, and opera nights a special treat. There might be a wait even with reservations in season, but thats because people dont' want to leave the experience is so nice

I read many of the reviews of Josephine's and would like to say that I found the food to be quite tasty and yes the portions are large. Our server was on top of things and was quite busy. The house filled up rapidly and it was quite tight trying to navigate the room with my wife using a walker... More

Place crammed so full with tables the waiters have to bump into guests to get around. Makes it too noisy even for a Saturday evening. Too many tables for the kitchen to serve in a reasonable period of time, and it should be obvious to the owner, but the owner cares more about maxing the dollars. Two hours wait for... More

Just returned from dinner there. We waited over an hour for our house salads and almost two hours for our main courses. The place was packed and the waiters were running around frenetically. Every table around us was complaining of the poor service and our waiter repeated that the kitchen was very busy. When we called over the owner, Josephine,... More

Ate here with family. Crowded and took a while to be seated. Food was pretty good and predictable for an Italian restaurant. Looks like there were plenty of regulars. Valet service was great.
