We’ve lived in the neighborhood for two decades but had never been.
My wife wanted to have a low-key birthday dinner here, just family.
And we enjoyed it.
The single most impressive aspect remains the decor and paintings of Josephine Baker.
I wanted to take photos of the latter but it felt wrong to do so as the paintings are generally celebrating her physical beauty while in a state of undress.
The restaurant and its decor are an homage to Ms Baker by her 13th child, though, evidently not adopted he was taken in and took her name.
The late Chef Jean Claude Baker.
The restaurant these days has a new owner.
We had the French onion soup, endive with Roquefort cheese, sea scallops, and rack of lamb.
All quite good.

Great low-key French restaurant. Everything we ate was delicious - escargot, pate, steak frites, spaghetti.
Okay that last one was Italian but it was still good! The servers were nice and attentive.
The space is a bit narrow and dark; intimate but loud voices can carry.
Live piano player was there when I had dinner - it was fine and not too overbearing. Recommended.

Thank you for your positive review of Chez Josephine.
We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed our diverse offerings, including the escargot, pâté, steak frites, and the spaghetti.
It's great to know our service met your expectations and that the ambiance added to the intimacy of your dining experience.
We appreciate your recommendation and look forward to welcoming you back soon. Best, Chez Josephine Team
