Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

An excellent fine dining restaurant with a distinctive French atmosphere gorgeous surroundings. The food was outstanding. The Escargots and Foie Gras for starters, were wonderful and a perfect lead into a shared Cote de Boeuf. We ended with a selection of desserts, all delicious. The...wine list was very comprehensive for both France and across the world. The staff were friendly and professional. Nick was particularly helpful and charming. We can’t wait to return.More

I’ve enjoyed a nice dinner with colleagues. The menu was very nice and the food was of high quality. During the dinner there was live entertainment which was very nice and certainly not standard, for a moment you don’t think you are in Dubai. Josette...is nicely decorated with a French touchMore

Had a fantastic evening at Josette, one of my favourite restaurants in Dubai! The service was fabulous (Thanks Geoffary and Stuart), the venue is just stunning and the food was impeccable as always (The carviar was to die for).

At Josette in Dubai, a rare phenomenon occurred—one that eclipsed my perennial devotion to gastronomic delights. Here, the allure of food, for the first time, assumed a secondary role, yielding the spotlight to a lavish narrative of shimmering glamour and candy-colored grandeur reminiscent of the...1920s and 30s.Paris. Josette is not a mere restaurant but a portal to a bygone era, an extravagant rendezvous with vintage Parisian charm, decadence, and glamorous opulence. The intentional extravagance of the brasserie transports us to a vision of the timeless Roaring Twenties, where enchanting mystique, charismatic sophistication, and sensual drama converge in an intoxicating dance. Josette, embodying the essence of a captivating woman: elegant, eccentric, commanding, accomplished, poised, mischievous, cultured, chic – is a force of nature. The restaurant’s character takes its cues from this magnificent woman. She lives in Paris but travels extensively. Her name is Josette. Josette is imaginary. Josette captivates us with her interior design. She unfolds her story through meticulously curated design meant to provoke, inspire, and surprise. From plush and opulent armchairs to lavish restrooms in reflective surfaces that contrast with rich emerald green and jewel pink walls and mirrors with elegant gemstone borders, we got a sense of decadent richness. I felt I could stay in the gorgeous restroom forever. Step into Josette, and you are enveloped in a sensorial embrace, a bold symphony of colors expressing unabashed romanticism. Mirrored columns, marble floors, sparkling champagne, and signature cocktails dance alongside velvet banquettes and high ceilings, creating an ornate dining experience that harks back to an era where the mantra was 'the grander, the better.' Josette's enchanting décor, sprinkled with storytelling, showcases hand-made ceramics, unique table lamps, and two grand domes offering a celestial view. Silver-leafed ceilings and color-changing blown-glass chandeliers further heightened The whimsical character of the main dining area. Comfortable seating beckons patrons to indulge in the whimsy of a place where half the restaurant is occasionally curtained off, unveiling its charm for an extended weekend starting Wednesday. The entertainment at Josette is a nightly celebration over the long weekends ranging from opera to the spirited allure of the Moulin Rouge. Our chilled Hugel Riesling wine selection complements the menu that reimagines beloved French brasserie classics for modern palates. Amidst the delightful details, I am amused at the menus, which have French dish names and descriptions in English, creating a linguistic ballet. The culinary journey is enjoyable, from an array of bread to the unbridled richness of French butter (I love French butte) and an excellent Salmon Pavé. Even in the unexpected—a pasta in a French restaurant—the commitment to indulgence shines. No skimping on salt or butter. The knowledgeable waitstaff orchestrates the dining experience with finesse.More

Excellent experience at Josette Restaurant. The food was amazing and the service is incredible. Fried calamari and tartare de thon, then entrecote, superb!! Pain perdu as dessert. Again all excellent. I would like to mention how nice was Anaïs who offered us a nice table...and took care on us during the dinner. I recommend to be in the main area where the scenario is and to come in the second round to whatch the parisien show (around 21.30). Decoration is incredible taking care on every minor detail. Will come back again. Sooner than later.More

Josette is one of the most beautiful restaurants in Dubai, the pink setting with each table having a gold button to ''Press for Champagne'' is so up my street haha! I took my Mum for the brunch and it was absolutely fabulous. Make sure you...come with an appetite because I've never seen so much food in my life. The attention to detail on every dish considering it was a brunch was just as beautiful as the decor. We were spoilt with truffled eggs, rare fillet steak, buttery escargot & tuna ceviche. And the desserts deserve their own special mention; the pastry chef deserves a Michelin star, as the desserts and the pastries are carved from heaven. I would love to come back here for breakfast as I just know it'll be equally as divine.More
