Holy cow....for the love of Mary, lay off the salt!! My tastebuds still haven't come back to life. Lovely atmosphere. Ok service. Not so okay cuisine. Sad tepid cappuccino. It all looked good on paper, but just didn't come to life. Lukewarm and salty beyond words....every. single. dish!....

My friend and I went there for brunch on yesterday (Sunday) and it was a good choice. I ordered the catfish sandwich and he ordered the corned beef hash & eggs and both were good. The seating is snug so if you're big on having space between you and other guests, this may not be the best place for you to visit. It's in a very high traffic area so take advantage of the complimentary valet parking, otherwise you'll spend hours driving around trying to find a parking space.

I run one of the larger Full Service Hotels in the area.
Food Quality and Creativity were Outstanding. Service was very professional and attentive.
No wonder Josephine is a top pick in Nashville for Brunch.
We will definitely be back and tell our friends.
Keep up the great work!

I was super excited to eat here again after I tried it shortly after first opening. We planned this as a special meal for my birthday. The food was delicious, but the dinner portions weren't worth the price. If price wasn't a factor, I'm sure we'd have had tried more things on app menu, but alas we only got one app to split. We left only moderately satisfied. The noise level and closeness of the tables made us a bit uncomfortable. I really wanted to love it. Perhaps we'll try again.

We have visited Josephine's frequently and have always been extremely impressed and happy with the food and the service. We had our office Christmas party there and everyone enjoyed!! we just took our best friends last Sat Night and they loved too. Never disappoints!!

I recently visited Josephine on a date night with my husband. Using OpenTable, we made reservations in advance and were seated immediately in the back corner of the restaurant. The table we were placed at was a two-top, and it was a little too close to the neighboring table to be completely comfortable (we could hear their conversation clearly), but the overall ambience of the restaurant was nice. It was small and intimate, but there was still a lot off activity going and you could tell people were enjoying themselves over a nice meal.
I just ordered a glass of wine, but my husband ordered the Chef's special, which was some type of bourbon drink, and he said it was surprisingly good and refreshing (he is usually more a straightforward bourbon and ginger drinker.)
We originally were going to order two separate entrees, but a nice lady filling out water encouraged us to get the Chicken for Two, and we were so impressed! It took a while to come out (about 35 minutes), but they informed us of this prior to placing the order so we knew what to expect. It was the best chicken I think I've ever had - cooked perfectly and so tender you could cut it easily with a fork! The accompanying greens and potatoes were the perfect compliment and there was more than enough for two people. My husband rarely gets excited about food, so I knew it was delicious when he raved about it.
Overall, the service was smooth, if predictable, and we had a great time. I event started googling the recipe for the chicken on the way home in case it was posted online so that I could try to recreate it at home (it's not unfortunately.)
My only regret is that we didn't order the dessert.

We loved our experience at Josephine's! We were there for a friend's birthday and the food was amazing ( I recommend the steak and beef cheeks) and the ambience was great. The staff were wonderful and I will be back soon!

Visited Josephine's on a date at the recommendation of my boss, we both work in Restaurant industry. I work at a upscale steakhouse and was very impressed with our server Shannon, she was super professional and fun. I gave her a price point for wine and she assisted me in choosing a very nice Bordeaux ($102) to accompany our entrees. She spent ample time sharing her knowledge of the menu and helped us narrow down our choices to the Duck and Ravioli. I absolutely loved both but the Ravioli was the best I have had anywhere so far. The brussel sprouts were fantastic as well, inventive and delish. We finished off with the apple pie and icecream. Make sure to have ample time to wait because it takes 30 minutes to prepare, but it is worth it. Tastes like momma's homemade apple pie. Was around $200 for 2 entrees, app, and dessert before tip. 100% worth it. Great for special occasions or just a nice night out on the town. Go and see for yourself.

This was my first trip to Josephine, but my parents have been several times. According to them, the quality of both food and service was on par with all previous visits.
I thoroughly enjoyed the food and drinks. The cocktail menu was unique and well executed. The food was straight forward and exquisitely prepared. My pappardelle was perfect and the lamb ragout was delicious. Best of all, the portion sizing was reasonable.
The ambiance was also really pleasant. It had sort of an upscale bistro feel to the decor but lacked the pretentiousness you might expect. The servers were convivial and knowledgeable.
I really can't find any negatives to report. We'll definitely be making a return visit and soon.

I don't mind dropping $175 on a meal. Especially with booze and dessert. However, I do expect the meal to be great at that price. I certainly don't expect scallops to be cold and short ribs to be just ok. Disappointed with the food.

We went there for our anniversary with reservations. Complimentary Valet parking for car. Once inside, we were seated promptly. We asked questions about the craft cocktails, and our server was very knowledgeable and able to describe them well. She was also very good with the wines, and menu.
I had the rabbit. While a little sweeter that I prefer, it was still very good. My wife had the Steak Frites. The Steak was a little rarer than she preferred, ( I'd probably ask for the next temperature up next time - example their Med-rare would be my medium) but was well seasoned, and the Frites were crispy and seasoned well.

Josephine was recommended as one of Nashville's finest places,
the cauliflower appetizer was the bullseye!! Our waiter was charming but no one knew who JOSEPHiNE BAKER was!!!! I was happy to educate!!! No one knew who Josephine was either ;)
...interesting!! GREAT ambiance and we had the very special table fit for royalty!!!

It started with the perfect dirty martini and then came the most delicious pork chop I have ever eaten. Then we walked out with complimentary, wonderful molasses cookies, recipe attached. An amazing dinner and we will be back!

Cheese plate was great but the bread was so hard it ruined the experience. The wait staff apologized but said all the bread was hard. It was nice to have a good vegetarian choice. The pumpkin ravioli was pretty good, but it was not visually appealing. Will go back, but a few changes would take this from a 4 to a 5. The wait staff was very polite, and the atmosphere was very relaxing and quiet. Loved the free cookies from the hostess as we departed. And, the parking is always very convenient with the valet right in front of the restaurant.

Really, really enjoyed our meal and evening! Nice unusual app, great scallops and steak for entree and unusual dessert. Convenient valet parking. Left with left over brussel sprouts... and, yummy gingerbread cookies with the recipe! We plan to be back at least quarterly!

Josehine's was a great find and a must go to when visiting Nashville. The food was delicious and beautifully plated, our server was friendly and knowledgeable of the menu and the decor was terrific! A bit out of the way but well worth the drive!

Made a reservation after reading about this restaurant in Garden and Gun. The brussel sprouts were a must and lived up to the rave reviews we had read about them. The Josephine benedict was delicious as well as the fried oyster sandwich . Two thumbs up from this mother and son.

Outstanding for breakfast. Dined here with my wife in search of southern inspired brunch and we found an impressive take on fried chicken. The quiche (my go to) is creamy and loaded with top quality ingredients.
Awesome atmosphere and professional service. Located in a great neighborhood with a lot to do nearby. Check them out

From beginning to end an enjoyable first experience. As a matter of fact, my dinner companion and I lost track of time enjoying our wine, appetizer, entree and dessert (!) we lost track of time and was late to a concert!! Service was professional and timely-- a welcomed experience in restaurant customer service these days. Menu is traditional and eclectic at the same time (a positive attribute ). The following is not a negative but something to note--- the dining space is a bit too shoulder to shoulder for my preference. Not ideal for private conversation especially for business conversation. Again, just a note to first time diners.
A return visit is in my near future.
