I went to Chez Josephine for an early Valentine's day dinner. My husband and I had a great time. For appetizers we had chinese ravioli with goat cheese, lobster bisque and shrimp cocktail. All were very good. For main course I had shrimp and sea scallops in risotto, while my husband had chicken with mashed potatoes. We both enjoyed our meals. We sat next to the piano which was very nice, not nearly as loud as I thought it would be. The seating is a bit cramped. The wait staff are very attentive. It was a wonderful experience and I would go back!

My first visit to new york was made especially fabulous by an evening at chez josephine. We only happened upon it because it was just across the street from our hotel but we went for a special birthday meal for my mother. Jean-Claude had greeted us earlier in the evening and although we were tired and dishevelled from our exertions during the day he was so warm and unpretentious he would have seated us immediately. However we returned later having scrubbed up ok and his wonderful staff made it a fabulous night to remember with their attentive and humourous service - just wish the night could have lasted much longer! Merci Pierre and merci Jean-Claude! You are first on my list on my return.

What an absolutely amazing evening at a wonderful bistro! This was my first visit to Chez Josephine. We arrived almost 45-mins early and were seated immediately by the gregarious Jean Claude. The staff is courteous and attentive. We had been to a 4pm matinee that afternoon and walked into the middle of the evening pre-theatre rush. We let our waiter (Jarry) know we were in no hurry and spent a wonderful, relaxed evening enjoying the food, wine, music (live piano bar) and most of all, the atmosphere! 3 hours later as we ordered our coffee and dessert Jean Claude sent over a round of dessert port wine with his compliments! Thank you Jean Claude, I know there will be many more visits to Chez Josephine in the future!

I have been to chez josephine dozens of times and it is always a delight! Jean Claude is the best host in New York City.

A charming and friendly host, attentive waitstaff, a varied and interesting menu that isn't "too wayout", and well prepared food at reasonable prices. What more could you ask for! We return again and again and are never disappointed.

This is a place you must visit. Jean Claude, the host and son of legendary performer Josephine Baker, makes you feel wonderful. Whenever me and my wife are in the city, our first stop is Chez Josephine. And let me not forget that the food is excellent.
