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.
Great service and amazing food. Had the chargrilled oysters and highly recommend. You won’t be disappointed.
It was my first time coming to this establishment and I can honestly say everything was amazing. I will definitely come back.
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.
The food was delicious so glad I was brave and tried the beef tongue! It was so tender!
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!
Wonderful service, delicious food.
Setting was nice and service was delightful. Food was fresh and delicious!!!
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.
They changed the Brussels sprouts!! They used to be so crispy. They were still good but not as expected. Crab cakes were good. Service was great. Great spot for a date night!
Tyler was amazing! Thanks for everything.
Love this space.
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!
Thanks for the delicious dinner and innovative menu.
Haven’t been here in awhile and it was just as good as always! Definitely recommend - also not overrun by tourists, which was great!
Great food, good portion sizes for the price and a nice setting. I took my mother visiting from out of town and she enjoyed it very much. Food was served quickly and our server was very attentive.
Great food. Great service.
Food, venue & service was wonderful!
Everything was wonderful and service was excellent!!
Very enjoyable meal. Great variety. Something for everyone. Great service. Not rushed through dinner. Definitely will be back.
Excellent service and exquisite food and cocktails!
Reliably good, service is extremely helpful and pleasant.
The Chicken for 2 was wonderful! We never order chicken in a restaurant but decided to take the waiter's advice, and we weren't disappointed!
I would highly recommend the Josephine to anyone for a nice date night or a nice dinner out. The Hangar Steak was absolutely phenomenal! I would also highly suggest the cornbread appetizer. Exceptional service.
Delicious as always. Every bit of food we ordered was so tasty and perfectly prepared. Josephine continues to be one of our favorite Nashville restaurants!
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.
Josephine never ever disappoints. The food, wine, cocktails, service and overall experience is ALWAYS just what I need. Thank you for a wonderful meal and night out!
The grilled chicken sandwich was delicious. The homemade fries were so good, I’d go back just for them!
second visit from California and it was worth the Uber to this area. They serve outstanding food and creative cocktails!
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.
Josephine never disappoints! So fresh, delicious, and perfect. I had not been for brunch before & the brown butter Josephine Benedict was killer
Excellent Choice for quality food and beverage! Food was fresh and made to order. Drinks were refreshing. We attended for brunch. I will definitely be back for dinner!
We had a wonderful dinner starting with the Benton’s ham and also the corn bread appetizers. Perfect ! We ordered some basic drinks and they were kind of weak - a new bartender was in training so think he was being very stingy on his shots. After commenting that my husband’s double gin and tonic was not so great our server, Tyler, had it remade and was much better, 3 of us had the crab cake dinner and that was excellent and one other had the duck - also fantastic. There were a majority of tables full but the noise level was good - didn’t have to yell at our own table to be heard. Much appreciated since so many places seem to like the super loud atmosphere for some reason!
Definitely a staple in the 12 South area and one that is great to go to again and again.
Brussel Sprouts were unlike anything I have ever had. Amazing
Top-quality food and drinks and outstanding service!
Wonderful experience, fabulous service, exquisite food! Don’t miss this fabulous restaurant.
I’m lucky to live within walking distance of Josephine, our neighborhood gem. They have improved all elements consistently over the years and are truly firing on all cylinders at this point. I appreciate the compact menu, and seasonal additions are always excellent. Only negative is that I can’t walk in and get a table these says - it’s popular for good reasons!
The food is consistently delicious and everyone is so friendly!
