Josephine Ratings and Reviews
The restaurant was highly recommended by locals. The drinks were amazing I had a bulleit old fashioned. They had a great wine list. The buffalo cauliflower is amazing. I had the scallops for dinner. They were large and cooked perfect. The corn, sausage and gazpacho added a unique smoky flavor. Others at the table had cod, duck and beef cheeks. Everything was delicious. The service was amazing as well. The restaurant is decorated with a lot of cool texture and is industrial. Best smelling bathroom in town.
It is usually a better experience than it was this night. The food took longer than normal to come out and was somewhat cold. In addition, the rabbit was full of bones to which was not appetizing. I completely understand these things happen, but this was my particular experience on this evening.
Service was okay - not as welcoming and processional as other Nashville restaurants we frequent. Apps and entrees interesting and very good. Brussels Sprouts & Buffalo Cauliflower apps fresh and tasty (cauilflower a LARGE app). Salmon fresh and well prepared to order. Pork chop and Steak were well prepared - not the best of cuts - but very tasty. Very cozy and comfortable.
The service and ambiance were very good. I had the omelet and it was exceptional. It is located in a very fun and lively part of Nashville. I live here and can visit a new restaurant daily almost. If you are a local or a visitor put Josephine on your to-do list!
Josephine is one of those 'gems that elevates one's appreciation for food and the effort that goes into it. We enjoyed several appetizers, few deserts and as our entree, we had the beef cheeks. Our favorite appetizer was the scrapple (you heard me right, scrapple!) and for the desert the dutch apple pie. The cheeks were perfect in every way possible.
If you haven't dined there yet, find a way to get there and sample the great cuisine.
We'll be back. The Sazerac cocktail was outstanding. So was the wine recommended by our terrific and knowledgeable waiter. Frisee salad was perfect. Scallops with a complex sauce -- creative and healthy. Steak frites -- good Parisian comfort food. And the hot apple pie-tart-torte -- whatever it was was fabulous. The parking valet remembered our faces and got our to us before we could fish the claim check out. Valet service is free but please tip generously. These folks are working hard.
This was our first time dining at Josephine. My husband and I decided to celebrate our anniversary here the other night, and we are very glad we did! The food was incredible (especially the small plates) and our waiter was friendly. My only minor complaint was that it was a bit noisy. Other than that, we had a great time and would definitely consider returning again in the future for another special occasion!
The service was great. It truly felt like we were guests and our host was paying special attention that we were happy. Each course was a winner from the beef tongue to the rabbit to the berry cobbler & sour cream ice cream. It was definitely a meal to remember.
Server insisted we get the scallops and they were cold and unseasoned. No flavor and the gazpacho was not a good touch. Husband got the steak and it was fine but not worth the price we paid. We came here for our anniversary and I wish we'd gone to a nice steakhouse instead. For $125 I could have gotten a lot more and a better meal.
We enjoyed a lovely, tasty and satisfying Sunday brunch with our daughter and her friend. The bloody Marys were just the right amount of spicy. The eggs benedict over scrapple was delicious and unique. The biscuit that came with the chicken and biscuit was the best I've ever tasted! The chicken was perfect---moist on the inside and just the right amount of crunch on the outside. The side salads were so generous and the perfect accompaniment to the rich deliciousness of the entrees. Daughter's friend wasn't especially hungry and asked for just scrambled eggs and toast, and not only did they accommodate her special request, but they dressed it up beautifully. And the pecan rolls! O. M. G. I have no words, so drool-worthy! The service was impeccable---our waitress appeared at just the right moments and our meals were served in good time. I know there are so many other good restaurants in Nashville, but whenever we return, I would have a hard time not returning to Josephine.
For Josephine's price, the value was just not there. We started off with the cheese plate which contained 3 cheeses (all great) with some crostini and nuts. The nuts were in place of the usual accompaniments such as onions, mustard, marmalade, etc. I get they were trying to be different but the nuts should be replaced or should at least not substitute the usual accompaniments. Considering this is a nice restaurant, that seemed like a "bar" food lazy choice. We also ordered the rabbit and steak. Steak and frites were great and cooked to order, but nothing special by any means. The rabbit was on the border of flavorless and came with dumplings as well as bacon, mushrooms, etc. The dumplings were an interesting addition because they seemed like breaded and fried dough, but had no flavor at all and were cold.
