Josephine Ratings and Reviews

Im very conflicted with my review of Josephine. On one hand, the cocktails, small plate, and dessert were phenomenal. On the other hand the entrees bordered on average. My lamb papardelle lacked a touch of salt and the bacon flavor I was promised in the menu description was missing. My wife's beef cheek entree was more successful. The beef needed more acid to offset the richness of the meat. You have the sauce and the horseradish but the dish needed something else in the sauce in my opinion. Overall a decent meal. Will maybe be back.

I was so excited to try Josephine but left fairly disappointed. Started out great with the Brussel sprouts and cauliflower small plates that were delicious. Cocktails were good. I originally intended on getting the chicken and I wish I had because two of the three entrees we had were not great. The ravioli lured me because of the fall ingredients but the dish is overpowered with too many ingredients. You cannot remotely taste the butternut squash purée. There is something sour in the dish that really made it difficult to enjoy. Same went for the lamb in the pappardelle dish. There was an odd ingredient that overpowered the dish. Service was okay. I ordered a glass of wine I was never provided. I would not recommend. Go to cityhouse or Adeles.

Excellent dinner on 10/14/16 for our wedding anniversary. Beautiful restaurant with great food, perfect for our romantic dinner. Also noted several tables of 5-6 enjoying dinner together, would be a great place to enjoy with friends and family as well.

Josephine is an excellent restaurant with really well executed dishes, great ambiance / decor, and excellent service. The menu has some really vibrant and surprising flavors to explore. The lamb, rabbit, and beef cheek mains have been some of my favorites... and the buffalo cauliflower is a can't miss! Enjoy!

We enjoyed a nicer dinner here while visiting Nashville. Love the area this restaurant is in and the food/service at Josephine did not disappoint. We love that their menu is seasonal so you can enjoy the freshest ingredients.

Delicious! A girlfriend and I were meeting in Nashville for a weekend trip and Josephine was absolutely perfect! Every bite of food was incredible and not too expensive for the quality! I would recommend to anyone in the city!

Josephine continues to surpass my expectations every time I go. I went with my husband for a weekday date night, and everything was phenomenal. I did not drink, but he enjoyed his cocktails very much. Our biggest complaint about the starters was that there were too many we wanted to try! We agreed that next time we go, we're going to only eat appetizers. The main course was wonderful- I had the beef tongue ravioli which was delicious and perfectly portioned. My husband had the beef cheeks which he loved. For dessert, we split the apple cobbler. I don't know how you're making that crust on it, but for the love of everything holy, please continue doing it. We recommended it to a friend the very next day. We will be back soon, hungry for more!

Way too noisy for a girls get together-we had to yell at each other to talk! Our table was right next to the kitchen and the extremely bright lights were right on us. They really need to add a screen or privacy wall in front of the kitchen. Unfortunately they were out of the corn ravioli-we had 2 non-meat eaters at our table but we got creative with lots of apprtizers.

Meeting a long time friend for dinner. Food was expensive and not anything special. Waitress warned us that servings were "European" size and we needed to order a starter as well as entree. Ordered pork belly starter. Pork was fine, tomato sauce served with it was incredibly sour. Also ordered brussel sprout starter. Strange blend of flavors with bitter sprouts and sweet fruits (canned mandarin oranges and craisins). It just didn't work. Friend had beef cheeks with horseradish risotto. Pretty good. Risotto was bland. I had lobster fettuccine. All ingredients were tasty but lacked sauce. Pasta was dry. Best item of the night was complimentary molasses cookies. Both entries needed bread served with them.
Service was excellent. Waitress friendly and efficient. Tables are 18 inches apart so forget having a conversation unless you are willing to share information with your neighbors. Valet parking a huge plus.
Bill $130 (including two cocktails and a glass of wine).

We loved everything we ate at Josephine. The goat cheese was creamy and tasty and the Brussels sprouts with golden raisins and peanut sauce was such a difference but amazing way to make them. Pork chops were cooked perfectly and the cocktails were also excellent!

Great restaurant. We had dinner with good friends in town for the first time. Josephine's was recommended and it was well worth it. Interesting menu with a number of items to satisfy anyone's tastes.
The staff, ambience, service and food were all above par. The ambient noise was OK as it was easy to have a conversation over dinner. Not rushed, felt relaxed and enjoyed the evening.
I had the beef cheeks over risotto. New to me and delicious. Just the right portion. Not too much. Our table guests had the duck and ravioli with sweet corn. All raved about the quality of their meals.
I would highly recommend this restaurant for any dinner ... special occasions, a get together, business dinners.

Picked Josephine from an article on the best 18 restaurants in Nashville! Plus! My daughter is named Josie! That was fun! And, sure enough the whole experience was worth the while! Great meal, nice place, and cool neighborhood!

Excellent service, remarkable food, pleasant decor. I ate in the early evening with my Father.
Some minor negatives up front: Dad thought the food wasn't very hot, although I thought it was a good temperature. Also the phone was ringing a lot on the front desk and it was rather loud and annoying, but it wasn't enough to become a major nuisance.
The service was top notch the whole meal. We had gotten there early so Dad and I started off in the bar, and the Bartender was very approachable offering suggestions and information. When we got to our table, the server gave us a choice of tap water bottled water or sparkling water. I'm a big fan of sparkling water with lemon so that a was a nice treat for me.
As starters we had ribs and a brussels sprouts dish. The ribs were decent (tender and with a subtle seasoning that was a pleasant change from the usual spicyness of barbecue, without being in any way bland) but the brussels sprouts were surprisingly very good. They were made with cherries and mandarin orange slices so there was a nice contrast between the bitter notes of the sprouts and the tangyness of the fruit.
For entrees I had the lobster fettuccine and my Dad had the Monkfish. I didn't have to hunt for pieces of lobster, they were visible and large enough so I could make a fork full of about half pasta and half lobster without too much difficulty. Dad's monkfish had a good seasoning and was cooked excellently. He would have liked a larger portion size, but it was presented well and tasted good.
For dessert we had the blueberry tart. The pastry part underneath was a little tough and lacking in flavor but I really liked the main part of it which was a nice blend of berries and cream, with just enough tartness from the berry to match the sweetness of the cream.
Overall it was an excellent meal, and a nice departure from the standard evening fare. A real treat.

I was so satisfied when I left Josephine's. The food was almost as amazing as the service, and that says a lot. The menu had plenty to choose from and the atmosphere was vibrant. I would most definitely come back.

It is so nice to dine at a restaurant where the wait staff is well trained and is appreciative of you being at their restaurant. The food at Josephine is always great. Thank you for being one of my favorite restaurants!
