Chez Josephine

The last of its kind near 42nd Street, Chez Josephine is a neighborhood gem founded in 1986 by Jean-Claude Baker as a tribute to legendary Josephine Baker. This Parisian bistro offers live piano music and a tantalizing menu in an intimate setting of red velvet walls, a cavalcade of chandeliers and a blue-tin ceiling. Guests receive a warm welcoming and are treated as family whether coming before a show, after the show, for a leisurely dinner in-between, or a drink at the zinc bar.

Chez Josephine draws a crowd unlike any other in New York as food critic Bryan Miller noted when he wrote: “The dining room is a confluence of the famous and the fashionable, the infamous and unsung – with every shade of skin on earth – and indeed you feel the magic of Chez Josephine.”

"I chose this place because it was next door to the theater . Amazing French Food - whatever you order, I went with the trout and my friend got chicken and truffle mash. The waiters are friendly and patient if you don't understand the menu (if a little snooty to go with the French theme). It seems they have a regular crowd of older patrons and the place is hopping from 7pm onwards. The Jazz music was great but I didn't appreciate when the waiter tried to place me and my friend in the corner right next to the piano - It was really difficult to hear because the piano volume was way too loud."

"Third visit. First time experienced mediocre food and disorganized service. Second time both food and service were good. Most recently, service was poor--restaurant manager serving multiple tables with no other service staff apparent. Two tables of guests arriving quite a bit after ours were served appetizers and entrees after us--and dishes ordered appeared to be same as ours. Once served, food was at best warm. On a nite when Kenmore Square restaurants were fully booked due to a Red Sox game, Josephine had multiple empty tables. Given Boston restaurant mortality rate, this is not a good sign.
Unlikely to return."

"I love Chez Josephine and have for years. I usually make a couple of trips to New York every year and this is always one of my first restaurants to book on every trip. The ambiance is very old New York and the food is fantastic. Highly recommend!"

"We were here for the new Sunday $19.26 brunch menu which I loved since most include
mimosa or bloody mary & since I don't drink preferred the yummy choice of 2 apps, 4 entrees
coffee & dessert. Friend & I loved the pianist which added to the ambience and Bernard is a lovely host & makes one feel welcome!

"I've passed by this restaurant many times on my way to the theater but never had a meal until the other night. I was impressed. It had the feel of a speakeasy -- pleasant and friendly -- with wonderful piano player playing familiar American songbook tunes. The food was very good and the service was speedy -- just what you want when you are trying to get to a show, but not so fast that you can't enjoy a real dining experience. I will be going back."

"Had a wonderful anniversary dinner with my husband. The restaurant was very crowded. Every table was occupied and there were people waiting, but the staff was very accommodating. The food was delicious! My husband mentioned that is was our anniversary. When my dessert came, Happy Anniversary was written around the edge of the plate in chocolate. It was a wonderful surprise. Even with a full house, the staff still cared enough to make our experience special."

"so close to theatres, and a gem. A friend suggested we eat here and I'm thrilled we did. A romatic, low lit, french bistro. small tables, close together as in so many spots we love in France. The PATE was abundant & excellent, as was the endive with blue cheese as an appetizer. Wines were reasonably priced. My husband raved aout the duck as his main, and I LOVED my fish, served on excellent greens."

"Food was ok. Had the French Toast and they give you 1 piece of bread. A little skimpy I'd say. Waiter kept forgetting about us and we went at 1 pm on a Sunday for brunch. Place wasn't crowded either. My friend had the omelette that came with a small amount of fries."

"We stumbled upon this gem in the back of our playbill the night before. We set out Sunday morning to find this place and what a pleasant suprise we found. Exquisite cozy little place with delicious cuisine, excellent service and great ambiance. I'm looking forward to my next visit."

"Chez Josephine has an authentically old world French feel and the service is genuine. I had the filet and she had the risotto. Both were outstanding. We had come for a species family event and the service, although it was quite friendly, felt a little fast for our liking. We were expecting appetizers and entres to come out a little slower. Altogether not a deal breaker because we went at our own pace. But the experience was worthwhile. I would return."
