The last time we were at Café Josie was June of last year. At that time, we tried the small plate tasting called "the experience." We had such a wonderful time, that we came back in January to celebrate a birthday and we were not disappointed. Many others on this site have described how it works, so I won't go... More

I can't overstate how delicious 'The Experience' is! On the recommendation of our Airbnb host my husband and I stopped in not knowing much about this place. We tried 'The Experience'--small plates at a fixed price ($45.00 per person) and it was amazing. Everything we tried was delicious. Between my husband and I we've eaten all over the world and...

Small plates at a fixed price, you can re-order your favorites, and everything is excellent. Very accommodating of gluten free and vegetarian, a wonderful dining experience.

Four of us (all from out of town) went to Cafe Josie's a couple of nights ago and had a marvelous dinner and a very fun time ordering small plates and often tasting each other's dishes. The Experience - meaning you order an unlimited number of small dishes for $45.per person must be ordered by the entire table and is... More

Such a unique concept - prix fix unlimited tapas portions! Excellent flavors, a perfect number of options for our table of four. The $45 pp price may seem low, but once you add alcohol, dessert, tip it can easily double, BUT IT IS WELL WORTH IT. Now serving cocktails, which are well made. Great wine by the glass options. This... More

The restaurant is a little set back from the street, but we found it pretty quickly. We had 'the experience', which offers as many small plates as you can eat and I heartily recommend it, since each dish is a little surprise. We especially loved the fried Brussels sprouts and the fried chicken, but there were many more dishes and... More

Visited this evening and tried "the experience." For $45, you get a tasting menu with many options. Eat as much as you would like off the tasting menu, I was only able to handle 8 small plates before I felt like I needed to be rolled out! Great service and good quality food. I would recommend this place to anyone... More

I read about this restaurant and wanted to try it due to a snapper dish that sounded great. When we arrived we discovered there was a unique tasting menu. For $40/person, you can try as many dishes as you wish off their tasting menu. It is fairly extensive. However not being hungry enough, we opted for a la carte. We... More

Blown away. The food, the service, the ambiance, the whole experience was luxurious and the evening felt special. We had a big table so we tried almost everything on the menu with the exception of only a few dishes. Incredible. Seemingly simple plates of food made with incredibly complex and exquisite flavour combinations. My gosh, I love this place. I... More

The menu is awesome. They will serve you everything on the menu for one price $40. Wine list, while not extensive, wasn't too expensive and paired well with the food. The pickled watermelon was exceptional as was the brisket. Meats are all smoked in house, and it shows. One of the best meals I've ever eaten
