Josef's is a great place for a special occasion, but many local people think of Josef's as a place for special occasions only. To really understand and enjoy this place to its fullest, you should know that it's also a great place to relax and enjoy a casual meal on a regular basis. We eat there twice a week some weeks, and we drop in without reservations. You don't really need a reservation if you come early, like between 5 and 7, and sit in the bar.
Pros: excellent variety of menu, sincere, old country pride in the cuisine
Cons: not trendy enough for everyone, limited seating, call ahead if going later than 6 PM
