Josephine Ratings and Reviews
Josephine has outstanding service, great food, and interesting handmade cocktails. The food is pricey for the size of the serving received. the entres that we ordered were beautifully plated and excellently prepared; however--they should be called "small plates". Our server went above and beyond. When I asked about the ingredients of a cocktail--she wrote down the recipe and even brought out the bottle of one of the mixes.
Celebrated my birthday dinner here and the food and service was spectacular. It was a tad bit loud but that could have just been the tables around us. I would highly suggest the rabbit and the beef cheeks if they are on the menu. We did order the buffalo cauliflower and it was not my favorite but everything else was spectacular. I would highly suggest a visit to Josephine if you are in the area.
We went for our anniversary. The Brussels sprouts app was really great but beyond that, everything was just okay. The drinks were fine and the entrees were fine (we got the duck and the lamb) however the steak next to us looked great. It was VERY loud and almost impossible to hold a conversation with my date across the table. We only went because we had a gift card and that’s really the only reason we’d go back in the future.
We had absolutely impeccable, friendly service and A+ food. It doesn’t get better than a cozy, neighborhood bistro and Josephine knocks it out of the park. Whether you are going for a quick drink at the bar or diving into a delicious, cozy meal for two, this place nails it.
SO SO SO good. Probably the best birthday dinner I've had and I consider myself a foodie. Our entrees were delicious and the molasses cake was PHENOMENAL. Everything else was highlighted by Shannon, our server. She was amazing and if you go in, you should totally request her. She did not steer us wrong in any recommendations and didn't placate to the typical "oh well I love everything on the menu". She was honest in a great, refreshing way. I can't wait to go back to Nashville just to eat here again.
Always a good choice when you are looking for something different. Somewhat limited menu, but excellent food and ambiance for a date or business meeting dinner. Not suggested for a "steak and potato" type as dishes are unique and mix many unusual ingredients.
Ho-hum & predictable food with apathetic service in a fairly enjoyable setting. For the price we expected a lot more, especially compared to Nashville’s other great competitive options. Would be agreeable for a business meeting, but do not expect a memorable experience.
We went for brunch on Saturday about 1230, dining room was mostly full. The sticky buns came out piping hot and were delicious. I ordered the quiche and I got maybe 1/8 of a 6” diameter pie, not a good value even at $13. Both the quiche and the Benedict came with a big pile of spring lettuce, really boring and honestly just lazy presentation. Noisy dining room. Skip it for brunch.
We were happy to find this on a Monday night, a birthday celebration for two of the four of us. It was slightly loud because of one table next to us, but mostly on the quiet side, which was a real contrast to a previous night at Josephine's and very welcome. Food is always excellent, especially Brussels sprouts. Our 4 different entrees were all great. I think the duck had a very high rating.
We were underwhelmed by Josephine. The wine we ordered was good, but it is a very expensive wine list: in each wine varietal category, there was about one choice with a bottle price under $50. All of the appetizers were non-traditional, but none of them was appealing to us, so we went directly to main dishes. The duck was dry (perhaps overcooked) and the lamb papparadelle was competently cooked-- these were not dishes that said "we've got to come back here soon." The apple cobbler we shared was probably the best part of the meal.
Lovely evening all around. Food was unique and delicious, perfectly seasoned and the portions seemed more generous than our last visit. They graciously accommodated our seating request. Note: seating near the front of the restaurant is chilly when the door opens if it's cold outside, even though they've attempted to remedy that with an enclosed outer entry. It was a very good choice for our annual family holiday get together.
We were seated in a drafty area heated with electric space heaters that looked like a porch. Kind of disappointing as there were available seats in the main restaurant and we made reservations ahead of time.
Our service was great, the food was just OK for the price.
My friend and I had a wonderful birthday celebration at Josephine's! We were a little early, but were made to feel welcome and were able to sit at our table and chat until the server was available. Overall, it was a fabulous day! Food was delicious! Service was outstanding.
This was our first visit to Nashville and Josephine's was recommended by the B&B we stayed in . The food was very good and the service was equally good. The menu was a little more limited than I am used to but adequate for most people. Enjoyed the experience.
Very good food. Our table staff was great and knowledgable about the menus and wine list. However we got there a bit early and had a drink at the bar. The bar tender was a rude and unhelpful. And then was the same to another couple that sat down next to us. Took away from the overall experience unfortunately.
