An amazing brunch experience from start to finish. We love Joselito for dinner, it has always been a hit so we figured we would check out their brunch and it was delightful. We tried the pancakes with serrano ham, the breaded wagyu beef and the toast with duck and poached eggs. YUM!! Each dish was delicious. The service was on point. We will definitely be back. Highly recommend.

These days I’m very forgiving towards service, but this was just bad. There were only three tables with customers and there were there two servers a hostess and a bar back. We were ignored and orders were wrong. The server had to be coaxed to take our orders for some reason. And she was plainly hiding out in the bathroom on her phone. It was just bafflingly bad and there wasn’t any excuse. The bar back was the only one doing his job.

Unfortunately, the service completely distracted from how good the food actually was. The cocktails were solid as well.

What an amazing experience. The food is absolutely delicious! Every single dish was outstanding. Our party could not get enough of it, we just kept ordering. There were six of us dining with very different preference and we all loved everything. The service was also on point. Strongly recommend! Will certainly be back.

The meal and service were fine. I was, however, very concerned that, in this time (Dec. 2021) when there’s a new surge of Covid-19, that most of the wait staff (who were great) were not masked. I hope that the staff will be more careful of themselves and their customers in future, for this is a fine restaurant. When I recommend this restaurant to friends, I will mention the lack of masks. Otherwise it’s a wonderful place to eat and talk.

Overall Pluses: exciting, varied menu options, friendly staff

Minuses: service was spotty: before we were approached, server helped couple that arrived and was seated after us, and served them drinks and bread, all before server ever came to our table. Also, different servers repeatedly came to the table and interrupted conversation during our meal to ask how it was. Re the ambiance, tables were too close together for COVID times.

Food was good to very good, prices appropriate given quality. Wine list provided excellent options.

I have frequented Josalito's since it opened but not since the pandemic subsided. I can tell you they have actually UPPED THEIR GAME. Every single dish we selected was outstanding. I love this place and so lucky it's close to home and survived 2020!!

This used to be a good neighborhood restaurant. I had just a bad dinner tonight. My tuna crudo was fine, but my husband's manchego was a bit tasteless. He liked his pork shoulder, but my main was honestly awful. I had the sea bass, which came in a tasteless corn starch sauce with burned broccoli on it. I sent it back and got a better tasting redfish dish but it wasn't cooked so I couldn't eat it. So disappointing.

Spectacular in every aspect.
The cod croquettes were the best we ever had ... even better than in Spain.
The other dishes (Lamb, Sea Bass, Foie, Tuna Crudo) were also fantastic.
Not to be missed.
It is not traditional Spanish food though, but its cuisine is extraordinary .

Delicious food once again. The fried cod fritters, David’s salad ( tomatoes, mangoes, avocado OMG) and warm veggies were solid. Fresh bread, spiced olive oil -yummy. Service was great, just love the diner atmosphere. It’s my favorite lunch spot at Eastern Market.

Good food. Good service. The menu is interesting and the dishes unusual. Most of the dishes can be ordered in one of three sizes - tapas, typical main course, or large enough for a family. Makes it very convenient to customize.
