    Great happy hour burgers and daily rotating drink and wine specials. Great place to pop into and eat at the bar, just for a drink or at a table. Bourbon list is hard to beat.

    It’s so comforting to know that when we walk into Josephine’s, there is never a doubt that we are in for a special occasion. Fantastic wine list! Chef Andrew and his team are top notch!

    Josephine’s is such a treat! We looked forward to our reservation for 4 all week and we had a wonderful time. From our starter of hash browns in duck fat with truffles to our fresh salads (get the Brussels sprouts) and mains - we had the chicken, the clams, the grouper and the scallops and topped it off with an apple pie and ginger cookies, every bite was delicious. We love the cozy ambiance and excellent service and are so grateful to have this dining option in our neighborhood. Thank you, Chef Andy.

    Overall an attractive venue although our table was in view of bright fluorescent lit food prep area (suggest closing door). Crab dip appetizer was delicious but serving with warmed dinner rolls (Sister Schubert like)is not a good match. The scallops entree included two scallops which is more appropriate for listing as an appetizer. Valet parking sign but no Valet attendant… perhaps the sign should be removed.

    Food was ok. Not great. Waitress told my husband pork shanks would “fall off the bone”. They were not. I had gnocchi. Never seen it served greens. Just ok. Friend had hanger steak which was tough. Waitress failed to tell us the pastry chef was a James Beard finalist. Would have tried at least one. Saw about the pastry chef on social media when we got home. We have loved brunch at Josephine.

    Very disappointed in the service and food quality. We waited 50+ minutes for our meal to come out. No acknowledgment of the special occasion by the server. I had requested gluten-free dessert options when making the reservation. No acknowledgment or suggestions. Josephine had been a first preference for special occasions until this experience.

    Our family had beef cheeks, bass and a veggie dinner. All terrific. The duck fat hash browns are a must have - so crispy and delicious! Especially with the truffle sauce. The cheese appetizer was perfect with a trio of three amazing cheeses, plus walnuts, bread and Jam! What a great, unusual, eclectic wine list too!

    This is one of our favorite restaurants inNashville area! The cocktails, appetizers and butter lettuce salad were delicious! We were just disappointed because our scallop dish came kind of warm to cold, and same with the beef cheeks. The beef cheeks was delicious but just was not hot enough. Overall we love this restaurant, we just want our food to come out hot.

    The service was great. The restaurant ambiance is fantastic. The appetizers were great. The problem was the entrees. Not as advertised and not edible, especially the pork shank dish. Like rubber instead of “falling of the bone” as described. We’re big brunch fans though.

    The sauces for our food were very overpowering. The waitress spilled wine when pouring, and it splashed into my dish before I had even started getting to eat it. She did not offer to do anything about it, just apologized. Which feels deeply upsetting, as the dish cost $37. We have loved dining here in the past and we’re deeply disappointed about this dining experience for having doesn’t $200 on the meal.
