For a faux- upscale place they pretend to be, the people working there are terribly patronizing in their attitudes. Very snooty and have had inefficient service from them 3 times in a row now. For the price they ask, they need to have better staff. Plus totally not child friendly. In fact, our friends had the most awful experience when they went there with their 4 year old. The host was rude to them and they left without even finishing their meal.

"May I always feel how I feel when I'm about to eat cake." A quote I heard on a Moth podcast sums up Josephine House entirely. Clean bright whites make the place feel as fresh and crisp as the prosecco in your hand. Enjoy a glass on the lawn or in one of the cozy nooks in the back. This is where you go when you want to show off your Sunday best or just feel good. Take a moment and a breath as you repeat the mantra above while taking your first bite of chocolate cake.

Great food and great drinks made by the best bartenders in one of my favorite local spots. So glad they are in the neighborhood.

This is the perfect date spot or to meet up with a friend or two--light but yummy food, great drinks, and smooth service. They even have Stumptown Coffee--my favorite! The patio is perfect for sitting back with a few drinks and a bread basket. A friend treated me to lunch otherwise I'm not sure I could afford to go this place on a regular/casual basis. If I could just win lotto, I'd be here all the time!

This review is regarding brunch. They do pancakes really, really well. The delicious sweet potato pancakes with pecans were incredibly light and fluffy in texture, yet rich in flavor. The pancakes are perfect for sharing and then getting another savory dish to balance them out. We also had the "breakfast" burger, which is to say a burger with an egg-over-easy on top. All the burger ingredients were high quality, including the fresh baked bun. The zucchini carrot bread was good, but the accompanying marmalade really enhanced it. Coffee is French Press or Americano. The adorable house-turned-restaurant makes for a very pleasant venue, and there are nice options for outdoor patio or picnic-style seating as well. Parking is a challenge as there are only three spots, so you are left on your own to find a spot in the surrounding neighborhood.

Delicious plates. Warm and inviting atmosphere. Great for brunch. It is a less formal version of Jeffrey's but still held to the quality of Jeffrey's.

it's like you are walking into ina garten's home. lovely ambiance and great service (something that is lacking in austin). a seasonal menu that boasts local produce and exciting entrees. quality place to eat lunch and dinner. they also host fantastic guest chef dinners, so def check that out. and i still need to go to steak night on Monday's! since their menu changes, its hard to suggest fave items. but i've never been disappointed by this place. def place to take out-of-town visitors when you want something a bit nicer but not uber stuffy. you may want to call ahead and make a reservation. they recommend it.

Great Lunch; enjoyed both of our entrees; splitting the hand pies and pomodoro. So what could make good food taste even better when it comes with great service. thanks to our waitress Summer; she was helpful and enjoyed having fun with helping us make our decisions. then she goes above and beyond with a comp berry tart for a belated birthday celebration.
