Only if you like worms in your food

We ate here a couple of months ago. At first, I was quite impressed. The cocktails were intresting and we had an enjoyable appetizer. My husband ordered some sort of beef for his main course. I wanted to try it so he put some of it on my plate. Right before I took a bite, I noticed a small green worm crawing around on it. My husband got the waiter's attention and demanded that he remove all the food from our ta... view more

Food Was Just OK, but Good Cocktails

My boyfriend and I went to Josie last night after reading great things in Los Angeles magazine and on citysearch, but have to say were disappointed. We eat out frequently, always trying to experience new restaurants with an open mind and a mutual love of good food. The interior, first of all, was a little outdated and somewhat blah, however, that could easily become ""easy going"" or ""down to earth"" if the food w... view more

SUPERB

I recomend everything on the menu!\r My own experience: \r As appetizer the roasted quail was cooked perfectly.....\r The venison, cooked to a perfect medium-rare, and the short ribs with cous cous. And for dessert we ordered the chocolate bread pudding, which was AMAZING!!!! \r If you haven't tried this restaurant you should.

great eclectic food in West L.A.

I had a celebratory meal at Josie last week. Overall, a great meal and a great time. The service was very good.\r \r We started (two of us, but hungry), with frogs legs, duck leg, and pork belly. All were excellent, though the pork belly skin should have been crisp, which it wasn't. They brought a sliver of wild mushroom quiche as an amuse bouche, which was also excellent. \r \r We then shared the tagine of short... view more

Wanted to love it

I had been looking forward to my first Josie experience. I came away very disappointed. The food was good. I had the duck which was wonderful. My husband had the venison so-so. The thing I was most disappointed with was the service. It baffled me. Were we being discriminated against because we were under 60? The waiter was very condescending when we asked for recommendations. We were left with no wine as our entrees ... view more

Great place if you want to wait and never get seated

I decided to try Josie's for a recent special occasion. I made a reservation, and my whole party showed up within 10 mins of the reservation time. The host informed me that our table was running late, but neglected to fess up until later that the party at the table we were waiting on had decided delay their order for an hour waiting for one late stragler, and because of this, our table wasn't ready. We were fine w... view more

Elevated American food, private atmosphere, middle-aged crowd

I arrived at Josie at 6pm alone. The place was empty, but filled within one hour so make reservations for dinner. The crown is middle-aged and I am 29 so I felt odd. If you have good company you won't really notice. Service is not pretentious and multiple waiters service you at the proper intervals. You can read the menu for 30 minutes if you want and won't be hassled. I was served a thin slice of mushroom cheese qu... view more
