The food was very good but way overpriced. I will not be returning because of this.

The SCRAPPLE was amazing! As a fellow northeastern chef i was stoked to see this on the menu. Was the highlight of our food trip here in Nashville. Both cocktails were excellent, sever and entire foh was very attentive. Started with crab cake, which was delicious. We shared the take a nap bowl and Josephine Benedict. Both were amazing, the seasoning on everything was perfect. I would have taken shots of the brown butter hollandaise if it was allowed lol. Amazing vibe, beautiful restaurant. Kudos to the entire team!

We were there for brunch. Everything was pretty good except our brussels sprouts were quite al dente for our taste. The server was awesome. The place was loud, very hard to hear each other across the table. The food was just okay. The "take a nap" was our favorite of everyone's plates. The portion sizes are very large for the price, which was a nice surprise.

Told the server it was our 31st Anniversary....did not even say congratulations. We ordered coffee, twice and did not get it. Our glasses were empty most of the time. Duck arrived cool and the skin was rubbery (not crisp). I would have sent it back but the server was nowhere to be found so after waiting I ate it. The bed on which it rested was cold. Yuk....again would have sent it back but the Server was in absentia. Crab Cakes were good but came out cold....and the drizzle on the accompanying salad was scant leaving much of the salad without dressing. We set this dinner reservation a while ago. We made it our Anniversary destination. BAD IDEA! Dessert was the best thing as the Cherry Crumble was hot and the ice cream cold. Beef Toungue was good and the oysters tasty and crunchy. Service was Horrible which made the meal a bad experience. We saw our server 3 times in 90 minutes. Not recognizing our anniversary and not bringing something we ordered twice INEXCUSABLE.

Our expectations were very high for the restaurant. The brunch menu was disappointing. Not very creative . Items to select from were not special.

Items were cooked nicely , but boring. Quality was not an issue.

Will not revisit this restaurant for brunch. Staff was very good.

We made a reservation here thinking it was a restaurant we had visited five years ago. It wasn’t, but so glad we did. The food was delicious and great ambiance. We will definitely come again when we visit Nashville.

This was a special birthday dinner, and it could not have been more wonderful. We had a delightful server (Manny), and excellent help with food and wine parings. The martini (dry, bruised, with blue cheese olives) was fabulous. We have dined at Josephine many times, and each time has been lovely, but this dinner was our favorite yet. Thank you!

This is my second time here and it was wonderful! Even better than the 1st. Every single thing we had was amazing! We also had a birthday girl that cannot eat dairy. I was so impressed with their dairy free selection and how incredibly knowledgeable the server was about the food preparation. Absolutely wonderful experience. Highly recommend!

I chose this place for my wife birthday dinner tonight. Before arrived I told the hostess that it was my wife birthday and said she was the girl in a white shirt. Dinner and appetizers were amazing! After finishing dinner I ordered dessert, thinking they would have put a candle or some type of celebration for the occasion. But they didn’t. So was kinda bummed. After paying for the dinner I talked to the waitress and she said she didn’t know anything about it. So all I can say it’s a good place to a meal and I won’t be back celebrating any special occasions there. And if you do make sure you talk to your server. Hostess failed.

We've been here a few times and every time it's a little bit worse than before. The food was underseasoned and everything was just "meh". For almost $100 after tip, we left still hungry and disappointed.

We had the oysters, beef tongue, and cheese tray for appetizers. Oysters were just a tad on the salty side, but all appetizers were delicious. For entrees, we had the duck, the schnitzel, and the crab cake. The duck was perfectly cooked and seasoned. The other entrees were also wonderful. We are definitely returning!

The service is personal and perfect. Everything on the menu is wonderful but for this dinner paired the bloomy rind cheese plate and the best double cheeseburger in Nashville with Palacio Alvaros Grenache blend for the perfect meal. Great wine list and great value. Perfect for a date night. Our go to restaurant.

We had a lovely Sunday brunch, saying goodbye to one of us who is moving out of state. As always, the food, service, ambience were impeccable. We stayed quite a while, and no one rushed us. A terrific experience, as usual.
