Service is horrible/food is just ok/wine list is pathetic
My investment banker friends took me to josie last weekend for dinner.We are all wine collectors and wine afficionado's and i was told that they have an impeccable wine list.My friends told me to pick the wines for the evening from the wine list.The prices are way over and second selections are terrible.Anyway i ordered few bottles and they were ok and than i ordered some more later on.The food is ok and i mean just ok,sorry to be so critical.I have been to the best restaurants in the world and some of the best here in the united states as well.The waiter was clueless and not hands on.Especially when you are spending top dollars on a meal and wines.I also noticed this fat un polite manager who seemed like the person who doesn't have people skills and that's why the staff is like him,they dont care.Most of the diners in the evening were super old,i was shocked at that.I am sure our tab was the highlight of josie for the evening.The restrooms are not as clean and second the wine temperature is not good.I am surprised at a restaurant who claims to have a wine spectator award and doesn't keep the wines climate control.I wont be back,i rather take my money to bastide or providence.

gone down the hill
This restaurant used to be good years ago,not anymore.I have been here recently few times with my clients and i have to say it has been a bad experience each time.The wine list here is the worst in los angeles,please get some wines.It's not only boring but oper priced.The service is lacking with people who work here but who dont care.There used to be a black waiter who always waited on us and was extremely funny and good.On recent visits we have been served by clueless waiters and waitress.Anyway i wont be back anymore till they get everything straight with food,service and wine list.
