Regrettably, Josh's closes this coming Sunday. This was one of our great small and unique restaurants that just couldn't last. This represents a big loss for customers down @ Union Square. Good luck to Josh-one fine chef. 🍽

Delicious food and cheerful staff with a reasonable price. Love the fish tacos. When the weather is nice the patio seating in the square area is a nice place to enjoy a meal.

Hate to hate. But this place was not good. Service was pushy, rigid. Food was gross. Chicken tacos just bland and without imagination. Shrimp tacos and fish tacos fair at best. Not flexible in modifying their simple menu even for additional cost (I will pay...More
