While I’ve given Josephine Estelle tons of tries, we have had bad service every single time. If the food was spectacular, I would be able to overlook it. We’ve had most of the appetizers and pasta and they are great. The entrees, however, are wildly overpriced for what they are. Stick to the pastas and apps and hope you get good service.
Very good food and service. Amazing pasta. I would definetly go back
The food here is just amazing. It's like your Italian grandma said EAT! EAT! and she keeps serving you stuff so good you just cannot stop. I had the salmon which was done to perfection. All the pastas are out of this world. This is THE place!
Food was not bad. Pasta above average. Loud bar next door detracted from the experience.
Great waiter and great food!!!
Delicious and the service was so very friendly
Food was great. Service getting drinks was very slow. It was not crowded and it toke
15-20 minutes to get drinks.
Everything was wonderful except when my husbands chair broke right under him. 😂
Celebrated a bachelorette party here and the food and drinks were wonderful!
We had an excellent meal, great ambiance, and Rhusher kept us entertained.
This was an incredible meal with an equally impressive ambiance. Excellent service and even better fare. Eclectic and well balanced flavors with exceptional attention to detail and quality. A must-have in New Orleans. The GM Rosh was attentive and kind. We will be back!
Service was terrible. I felt like our waiter forgot about us. Food was ok.
In from out of town. Service was fast and friendly. Music was spot on - records on a turntable! Food was exceptional - Brussels sprout salad, insalata tricolore, grilled peaches with burratta, JE meatballs, cacio de pepe was all outstanding. Wonderful ambiance. GM came to greet us at our table, was cordial, and seemed to really enjoy his job.
Great ambience, beautiful design and decor, service outstanding, food very gourmet, over all love it. Se stay at this hotel before, and have dine in the restaurant a few times, always perfect
Wonderful meal. Very pretty restaurant
The food was very good and the atmosphere is great. It’s very swanky!
Such a great atmosphere and delicious! I am also celiac, and they were extremely accommodating.
The service was incredibly slow. Food was subpar and cold.
Food was absolutely divine…pasta and sauces were as fresh and tasty as I’ve ever had. Tricolore salad was super crisp and enjoyable. The host was very personable and polite. We sat outside and the weather was perfect. Table was wobbly, but didn’t inconvenience the meal. The bottle of white wine we ordered was great, but wasn’t able to truly enjoy it because it warmed up rather quickly outside since there was no chiller/ice bucket provided to help keep it chilled. The cappuccinos came out long before our dessert came out, but the waiter did offer us a taste of an after dinner drink to remedy that. All in all, we really enjoyed the meal and would definitely return and recommend the establishment… they just had a few hiccups with the service a that need a little work. Would definitely eat there again.
Waiter seemed busy & didn’t check in on us but can be expected with everyone being understaffed. Food & drinks were amazing, had a lot of fun.
The server mixed up our cocktails and didn’t really know how to describe the foods. But overall, service was quick and food was great!
The decor was simply beautiful. Everyone was extremely friendly and welcoming. They made sure we were enjoying ourselves, and if the food was good. Everything was delicious especially that Brussel Sprouts Salad and the Watermelon Mimosas! I can’t wait to visit again.
The food was excellent and the atmosphere was very pleasant. The staff was really nice but it seemed the staff was very untrained and more like a lot of random workers/servers helping wherever there was a need.
Food is good. Felt a little over priced for the portion size. It’s pasta but hey, cost are going up. I ate there twice though.
Too expensive for the kind of food. Limited menu, kind of disorganized service. The music was too loud.
Food was great and the atmosphere was great. The bartenders were knowledgeable and made well balanced drinks.
Such good food! Still dreaming of their pasta and entrees
They’re severely understaffed and the server was poorly trained…didn’t take order correctly, forgot drinks, forgot to provide utensils upon serving courses, didn’t clear dishes between courses (or at all…let them pile up entirely) and made order/billing errors on our check…frankly not at the level of attention/professionalism I had expected from this restaurant. However, the manager on duty Shawn was quick to act and address our concerns promptly once raised. I did appreciate his intervention, but won’t be back to this restaurant again until they improve their service…and properly train their staff. I felt as though I was dining at a low end diner on the outskirts of town…the food was good, but the very poor service overshadowed any enjoyment we had for it. Also, the dining room desperately needs a refresh…the chairs/booth we were in at our table had worn/torn upholstery. Not becoming of a restaurant at those menu prices. This used to be a gem…but sadly now has lost it’s luster. Too many dining options in town to settle for this place in it’s current condition…hope it can turn around soon…then I will return. Until then, I wouldn’t bother.
Great venue the food was very good. Like everywhere struggling with service issues because of the pandemic. Very polite and welcoming staff
Fun date night.
Rigatoni wasn’t quuuiiiite as good & staff as friendly as I had remembered, but the drinks were great and refreshing. Absolutely love the look of the place as well!
Went for a family dinner. Drinks too 30 minutes to receive. Appetizer was an additional 30 minutes. All of our food orders took over an hour and we received completely wrong meals. Service was terrible.
Dish was excellent, but service was slow. They weren't particularly busy, and the waiter seemed to be training two other waitresses, which is fine, but that means there are many hands to get refills yet they struggled to keep glasses full. Our table was right next to their computer station. And yet they still passed us up a few times.
