The fried chicken sandwich was pedestrian at best. Fries were great; bloody’s were great; service was excellent.

Terrific meal with excellent suggestions from our server Zibby. Beef Cheeks were deliciously prepared and the Monkfish was perfectly paired with savory mashed potatoes. And don’t get me started with the cherry crumble dessert! So tasty! We’ll be back for another fun date night!

The hostess staff were very nice and the restaurant has a warm atmosphere. Sadly, the food was subpar. The monkfish was spongy with no taste, the beef cheeks were overcooked and hard, the horseradish risotto it was served with was….strange. Sadly we cannot recommend this establishment.

The best restaurant I've eaten at in a long time. Everything we ordered was amazing! Service was spot on. Our server Kyle was informative and attentive. We tried almost everything on the menu and loved it all! Can't say enough positive things about this place!

First time at Josephine's. Ambiance and décor were very cozy. Had the ham rillette to start. Very nice touch with the crumbled bacon and the relish. The scallops were cooked perfectly and the shitake mushrooms added a nice touch of umami. My wife had the rabbit which she enjoyed but a bit on the sweet side for me. Overall a great restaurant and I'll be going back for the beef cheeks soon.

I love this place and the core vibe of it. We had Tyler as a waiter, very friendly easy-going and knowledgeable. We were there for brunch and both had eggs or quiche and was able to talk without competition from the lack of acoustics. Definitely try Josephines!

Wonderful brunch experience! Loved the ambiance and our server, Kyle. He gave recommendations for food.. and things to do in Nashville.

Only critique: Chicken sandwich was too heavily sauced.

Thank you!

Josephine is just that perfect place away from the "strip" and nestled in the cutest community of boutiques, breweries and coffee shops. The food is excellent, the drinks and wine list top notch, it's just fancy enough for a first date, and yet casual enough for a pop in burger at the bar. We always experience something special here.

We made a spur-of-the-moment decision to eat at Josephine's. We were two couples and a toddler. They put us in a quieter part of the restaurant, which was great. Our server was friendly and thorough, with great menu suggestions and steering us through potential allergies. We will be back.

Disappointed that there was no tasting menu available. When you order a gin and tonic, it should be a reasonable expectation that it is stirred. Appetizers are larger than the entrees. The cornbread appetizer and the beef tongue were simply outstanding. So was the beef cheek entree. Sweet potato appetizer and the scallops entree were just okay.

Gabriel was great. A consummate professional waiter. Deserves praise.

The food was great. Nothing came out exactly what I was expecting, in a good way, everything had its own little flair.

I would highly recommend.

Celebrations are always wonderful at Josephine. The informed and intelligent service of Emilee made it even better than usual.

From the opening brussel sprouts and fingerling sweet potatoes, to the beef cheek and the pot de creme, it was all delicious!

One of us ordered the crab cakes. It came with a salad. We also ordered a salad. They were practically the same. We didn’t touch the salad that came with the crab cakes. Our waiter should have warned us of this.

First time at Josephine. Beat expectations. Natalie suggested the monkfish at it was spot on! The duck was delicious, and the wine list had a bottle of Dumol that we had never tried before. Good food. Good service. Good value. Hard to beat

The food is not memorable. I had the happy hour double burger that was tasty but not special at all. I also ordered brussel sprouts which had a cheese sauce on it. It was too much cheese sauce and eats really heavy. I also had the duck, which was really small for a $33 dish. The duck was chewy and did not have much taste. The food was passable but not memorable especially for the prices

Food came out lukewarm/cold. We're not ones to complain about our food when we eat out unless it's just awful (which it wasn't) but probably won't be back again. Service was great though.

Food was decent, the crab cakes had un-chewable shells in them. Our server was great but messed our bill and charged us double somehow. I wouldn’t recommend it.

Nice atmosphere, friendly staff. Limited menu choices and no specials.
We were disappointed that there was no good option for snack at bar/happy hour.
Food was good but nothing on the menu that I would rush back to have again.

A blissful reprieve from the chaos and noise downtown. Food good albeit a bit salty and pricey. And no vegetarian options for the main course. Our server was excellent.

Brunch with my husband. It was a great restaurant. We split a salad, the burger and the fried chicken sandwich. The food was delicious, good sized portions. The Bloody Mary with Old Bay rim is not to be missed! Our server was very professional and nice.
