  • The service at Josies has always been pretty shitty---either mildly incompetent (forgetting to bring a spoon for your ice cream and then disappearing as it melts) to snotty.

    The food has always seemed "overpriced," never fresher, more innovative, with more refined (or expensive) ingredients than anywhere else.

    But, when you are stuck on the Upper West Side, and wanted something vegan, Josies was there, and the food was good enough. The tofu scramble, stirfry, lentil loaf, josie's plate, etc., were all tasty choices... and then they got more meat friendly, and then even more meat friendly, and more vegan hostile, til there was barely anything left that we could eat, and of that, nothing much that we would want, especially at those prices. Who knows why. With Blossom Cafe in the hood, there's definitely got to be some vegan heads that would patronize the joint and meat eaters and regular old vegetarians that would appreciate innovative vegan choices. This place has always had attitude, and its attitude towards vegans right now is not that friendly. The food is more bland and boring and expensive than ever, the atmosphere blah, and the service still lousy.

  • Review by crispyheart on January 15, 2007:

  • I had once before been to Josie's East and had a very enjoyable meal there. So my last dining experience (a few months ago) at Josie's West was extra disappointing. My pasta dish was bland, soggy & generally a complete waste of money. The service was slow, scattered & though the place was not terribly busy, our server was definitely not interested in our enjoyment of the meal. I don't need my hand held while I'm eating out, but coming by to make sure we got everything we'd ordered, were not in need of anything else, and generally were having a trauma-free dining experience is de rigeur at fashionable and less fashionable eateries in the world. With so many other awesome veg options, I am definitely going to think long & hard before returning. Mushy pasta I can make at home, thank you very much!
