I know this is the most expensive neighborhood in Sao Paulo but I think they should review their prices, the foo is good but for me it is just too much...you have much better options very close...

The Josephine serves contemporary Brazilian cuisine with a strong influence of the French cuisine. Beside the dishes the restaurant serves quiches and a broad selection of sanduíches from the traditional hamburgers to the French classic croque messieur. The risottos are excellent alone or as a complement. The restaurant is informal with tables in the open terrace and patio. The prices... More

This place is very good. Servers speak enough English to be able to order efficiently. Good is very very good and the wait staff is quick and helpful.

I went for a casual business dinner with some colleagues. Good to go with a local that loves the place so he indicated the best options. Good quality of food, good service and the owner is always around... which is a good signal.

We've been there on a Friday night. Food was ok - I had a seafood risotto, neither surprising nor spectacular. My husband had a chorizo steak, much tastier. Atmosphere used to be cozier, the terrace area was too illuminated. Service and prices were also good.

We ate at Josephine twice while we were in Sao Paulo for business. The first time, I ordered the cheeseburger and it was the best I've ever had. Ask for it with grilled onions! The second time we ate there, I ordered the salmon, which was good - but the cheeseburger was scrumptuous.

We went in for an early dinner (arround 6 PM on a Saturday evening). It took some time for a waiter to take our order but to our surprise we got our ordered grilled steaks in almost no time (less than 5 minutes). It immediately became clear to us that the food was just reheated (and heavily salted and tenderized... More

My third visit at Josephine, a very good place for a business lunch or for a rest in your shopping. Large portions of grilled meat or fish can be eaten with fresh salads or well prepared risottos. Nothing extraordinary but honest food, good service and nice ambiance. Try one of the deserts, simple but delicious: white chocolate ice cream with... More
