Our Family has a soft spot for Josephine’s Modern American Bistro (JMAB). We held an after-wedding dinner there some years ago. The staff accommodated to our need to get into the rooms to decorate the night before the dinner. The special menu they created for our wedding guests was wonderful. JMAB is located on HWY 180 in Flagstaff. This makes... More

Just north of Downtown, cozy & non pretentious. Had a reservation and was promptly seated. Waiter friendly & humorous without being over the top. Started with the baklava Baked Brie, interesting and tasty twist of Brie with typical outer Baklava phyllo covering with honey & pistachios. Caesar salad fine not extraordinary but nice to be able to add White Anchovies.... More

We were on the way to the Grand Canyon and went to Josephine's for dinner with some friends. The food is awesome and they update the cocktail menu fairly often. I had Macaroni and cheese with very large shrimp in it. Others had the special of Salmon stuffed crab and also the crab cakes. All of it is excellent.

My wife and I were hoping for a good meal after returning from several days exploring the areas of Arizona where fry bread and spam were considered staples. We arrived at Josephine's after a long drive back from Gallup, NM - tired and hungry. The menu is interesting: lamb meatloaf, pork osso bucco, crab cakes, calamari, and more. We both... More

I'm sad to write this review, as it seems that many of Flagstaff's finest are headed in this direction. Josephine's was nothing but disappointing. Where do I begin, bad service, being ignored or cold food? Bad Service: It seems we got the trainee or so it seemed. Our table wasn't laid out correctly and she didn't notice. We ordered drinks...

Not inexpensive, but quality cost more. We enjoyed our meal here and wen back for a second time during our week in Flagstaff. Good wait staff, not pushy and very accomodating. People from Phoenix drive up, over two hours, just to eat here. That should be all you need to know.

I come to Flagstaff somewhat regularly as I lived there in the early 2000's and I always come here. Being from the Bay Area, we are a bit snotty about food and we are always blown away by this place - the food quality is just phenomenal. Most recently, we had the cioppino seafood stew and the pork osso buco... More

As locals we love to eat local, However this is one place I may not return to. I have heard nothing but great things from this place and i wish that was the experience we received. The food was very nice, a little pricey, but good. It was the waiter that really ruined this for us. He was rude, maybe... More
