Josephine Ratings and Reviews

Overall, the experience was quite disappointing. The waitress truly had the opportunity to make the visit a positive experience – however, instead the waitress didn't care, engaged only one spoken toand had a terrible attitude throughout the dining experience. The food was served warm but not hot, the meals we're sitting under heat lamps for more than eight minutes upon delivery from kitchen. I sure hope this was a fluke, precious experiences have been outstanding!

Josephine had been on my list for a while to try out, and it did not disappoint. Went for brunch on my birthday with three other ladies to celebrate. They hand lettered a card wishing me happy birthday, and the service was impeccable. I would highly recommend their brunch as I got the waffle, two others got the quiche and the last one ordered the Eggs Benedict. We all came away from the experience delighted and stuffed with good food.

One of my wife and I's favorite dinners of all time. The lump crab, beef cheeks, seared tuna and peach cobbler were some of the best ever. Pete also did a great job taking care of us, many thanks for a great evening!

Lovely ambiance and a unique menu with generally high quality food. I though it was overpriced though. The sauce on the beef cheeks was so overpowering that it was hard to taste the meat or the horseradish risotto underneath.

Beef Cheeks. Duck. Great Wine. If you're into elevated cuisine, love the richness of hand crafted food and are willing to pay $200 for a good meal including wine, you have to go! We loved it for celebrating our Anniversary.

Our waiter Gabriel was so nice. The food was very good except the cheese plate was a disappointment. The nuts were extremely salty, and there were only about seven crackers served with the dish. We ask for more crackers and were charged for them!

I was a Josephine's for brunch while visiting my daughter who lives in Nashville. We planted ourselves in our seats and chatted for a good 2.5 hours! Never once did we feel that we were being pushed out. In fact, we hadn't even realized so much time had passed. Our waitress Karah was adorable and gave us the exact right amount of attention and GREAT food recommendations. It's in an adorable part of town. AMAZING Blood Mary. Highly recommend. Not inexpensive.

We celebrated our 25th Anniversary at Josephine recently and it exceeded our expectations. Service was phenomenal - our waiter was also one of the sommeliers and helped with great pairing recommendations. He was attentive & professional without hovering. We had been to Josephine in the past and had good experiences, was this trip was a notable step above our past visit. We look forward to coming back again soon.

I love taking friends to the restaurants of 12th Avenue South...and Josephine has much to recommend it. The service is upbeat and engaging...the dinner selections excellent. The "energetic" noise level was too much for me on Saturday night, though my companion, who sat in the cushioned banquette, seemed to have less of a challenge in this regard!

Nice Place but I would not go to eat there again. I guess my palate is just too unsophisticated. I took my wife for her birthday because it is hip and trendy with great reviews. And it was a cool environment but the food was just too out there for us.
I am sure a real foodie would like this place, but it taught me that I am not in this category.

My wife and I brought my daughter for a visit to Belmont University and I made a reservation the day before we dined there via opentable. I had never heard of Josephine, but I will certainly let others know of it. We had a wonderful meal, service was excellent, and the ambiance added to our overall wonderful experience of Belmont and the surrounding 12th Ave. S. area.

When I'm visiting Nashville Josephine Restaurant is a go to spot for a cut above dinner during the work week . The food is well prepared and presented by their excellent servers. I had one of the best pork chops ever. The scrapple appetizer was outstanding.

Good food. We we were especially pleased with the scrapple. Also had the beef tongue, beef cheeks, and the duck. The duck was cooked perfectly, but the accompaniments were nothing special.
Table are close together, which encouraged conversation between "neighbors". Nice atmosphere.

We started with the Bibb Lettuce Salad with bacon, croutons, radishes, herb buttermilk dressing, one of our favorites! I had the seared tuna which was excellent. My date had the chicken for two (half we took home), it had delicious crisp new potatoes. We did not have dessert, but the French Press coffee is the nice way to end the dinner, with great flavor.

Josephine is one of my all time 12S favorites. The food is consistently delicious and creative. The waitstaff explains the dishes beautifully, offering great advice on their favorites. The kitchen handles food restrictions exceptionally well and the servers are well informed and handle special requests without making guests self conscious. The valet service is a real bonus and the guys are super friendly and fast. I've never regretted recommending Josephine to friends traveling to Nashville. It's really, really good. Across the board.

Our group of 6 had a great time. Very unusual menu which made it fun. We sat in a booth that faced the windows. It was horrible until the sun went down . We had to hold our menus up over our eyes . Great desserts.

Half the items we ordered were quite nice--especially the asparagus and crab. But the other half left much to be desired: the roasted salsa overpowered the grilled squash and the duck main dish was both under cooked (we had to send it back) and flavorless.

We had a 6:00 Sat. night reservation and the restaurant was busy but not crowded. Seated immediately. Had a very nice waitress. My husband really enjoyed the Spaetzel. I had the Pappardelle and it was just okay. It was my third time to the restaurant but my first for dinner. I'll certainly go back but probably for brunch or lunch.

We were the second couple in the restaurant that evening (at 5:00 PM) and it took over an hour for our food to be served. As the restaurant filled with patrons, they, too, were complaining about the long delay in receiving their food. When my wife's steak arrived, it was cold! Our waitress was very good. The cook staff was noisy; the recorded music was loud and "noisy"; and therefore, the bar patrons were noisy. In our opinion, during the last two or three years, this restaurant has gone from a quiet, nice locale with a special menu for a special occasion, to one of noise, heavy drinking by a younger set, and slow food. I know this is where the profit is, but it will cost you some older, reliable customers!

Visited for Saturday brunch. My daughter and I ordered 2 of the less pricey items on the menu. The food was good enough, and our server was very good. I did pay $9 for a single mimosa. I do like the atmosphere of the place, but just don't think it's worth the price.

Anniversary dinner and tried for the 1st time. Excellent dish concepts unless anyone is a vegetarian and then the entree are pieced together. Had an issue where the veg option was arranged to be the entree and both the portion size and pricing were sad. Causing a sour note on an otherwise good evening. The server went above and beyond to rectify but shame on the manager for not having thought through the scenario and provided a normal portion for a fair price to begin with. Loved the use of Porter Road Butcher meats however.

We had a great time at Josephine's for my boyfriend's birthday! Great selection of drinks, food options that were both tasty and quite different from each other, and great seating. The wait staff was friendly and timely. Food took a little while to come out of the kitchen, but I would rather it be prepared fresh and carefully than thrown together!

The food and service were great. My friend really enjoyed and was surprised by her cocktail as not tasting traditional which was a plus for her. Nice wine list. We sat at a round table which is my favorite shape for a table. I love the farm to table aspect and appreciate the creative variety of offerings over a set menu kind of thing.
