Having spent three days in the Bethel, Woodstock and Saugerties area we selected Joshua's for our special night out and reserved a table for two by the window. When we arrived we were ushered right in to the cozy window table for two and warmly greeted by our server. He explained how their three course dinners worked which include a tabuli, humus pieta course, a salad and then our entree of choice. Having read the Yelp review about the sweet potato latkes and the matzoh ball soup we ordered those to proceed our meal. The latkes with apple pear sauce and sour cream were to die for. The matzoh ball was light, fluffy b u t the soup was ehh...mine is like liquid gold so Tom was disappointed. He ordered the blackened filet mignon with mashed potatoes and it was cooked perfectly much to his enjoyment. I ordered a special pumpkin ravioli and I even hesitated when it was described as being served with cherry tomatoes etc. Thinking pumpkin ravioli deserves a savory sauce I chanced it. Big mistake and I own the poor choice it was not worthy and I sent it back. The server readily offered to replace it when I shared my disappointment and my still full plate as Tom was almost done. I passed on the replacement as I was justifiably full of latkes, salad humas, pita and tabuli. He generously brought me a complimentary second glass of the delicious white wine I had chosen. We did share the Linsor Torte for dessert which was a rustic version with very rich chocolate that went perfectly with my cappichino. When in Woodstock give Joshua's a try just don't order the pumpkin ravioli.

This isn't the sort of menu that I would normally go for but I have to say that the food was absolutely beautiful. I had cajun salmon with pesto mashed potatoes and asparagus. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the restaurant has a lovely quiet atmosphere.

I chose Joshua's for lunch with a friend because it's quieter than some other places in Woodstock on a weekend. In that respect it did not disappoint; pleasant atmosphere, good service. I had apple-butternut squash soup, and it was excellent. But then maybe I picked the wrong entrée. It was asparagus wrapped in smoked salmon served with latkes. The asparagus was virtually uncooked. Crisp and crunchy. The smoked salmon's flavor was okay but it was a little dry, maybe it had been exposed to the air for too long. The worst part of the entrée was the latkes; flavor was okay but they had the texture of rice cakes. Crisp and crunchy, like the uncooked asparagus. But dry, too. I even tried tasting just the center, hoping it might be moist; no such luck. Joshua's has a large menu selection for Sunday brunch; they might do better to focus on more careful preparation of a smaller selection.

Wonderful, fresh food and awesome service. Every dish was exceptional, especially the falafel. Great mixed drinks too. The 'Costa Rican' was deemed as good as that of San Jose; so much so that one of our party was convinced the chef was from there. Cannot recommend enough.

Spent the weekend in the Catskills eating in all the High end restaurants that were top recommendations. A visit to Woodstock NY and we came across Joshua's! Have to say that this was the best meal by far of the weekend!! Great Mediterranean food! This was our last stop and was the cherry on the top for Jane and I.
