Josephine Estelle is located in New Orleans’ bustling Central Business District, just a short walk from Bourbon Street and the Superdome. We’re open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch. We look forward to seeing you soon.

  • Jazz Brunch in Josephine Estelle

    Multiple dates available
    We think a good brunch should go something like a jazz quartet. Pancakes ground you like the walking bass, egg yolks coat your palate like the lush sounds of a grand piano, coffee adds some mid-morning rhythm, and the citrus brightens the mood like a sting from a horn. Josephine Estelle offers weekend brunch from 8am to 3pm with Or Shovaly, playing from 10am to 1pm, creating a soundscape to make your morning that much better.

    We arrived at 1:00pm to relatively empty restaurant. Service was reasonably good; however, they were out of our 1st choices on the menu. Overall, an underwhelming experience. This was our first time at this restaurant and motivation was to try something new to us in the city.

    The Brunch Jazz Band was great but that is where the positive experience ends. I live here in the CBD and was looking for a quick brunch with some jazz but the food was horrible!! The food served may be fine for an out-of-towner or a Bridesmaids boozy brunch where food is a second to mimosas. Service was ok, but indifferent. We are big tippers and always polite but we couldn’t even eat this food.

    One the best places for fish. Fresh Gulf fish prepared with terrific accompaniment. Save room for dessert. Beautiful dinning room but can be a little loud if bar crowds are large.

    Gorgeous restaurant! Our waiter, Ryan, was very attentive and sweet. We had brussels sprouts and split a ceaser salad. Both were delicious. For entrees we both chose pasta dishes. They were delightful! A bit pricey!

    Went for my birthday brunch here. The manager was super accommodating when we asked to move to see the jazz better.

    Disappointing. The menu is not as advertised. Very small and limited selection. Only 4 kinds of red wine. One draft beer, but the draft was broken. Small portions. Of all the choices in NOLA, go elsewhere.

    Better than most hotel restaurants. Good pasta and drinks. Service was challenged because of number of tables and they were out of a few things our table wanted to order.

    Nice waitress but the food was a little cold, poached eggs a little too runny, service a little slow. I will say the beignets were delightful tho and I would go back just for those and a glass of champagne!

    Hi, Thank you for dining with us and for the feedback. We will take that to make necessary improvements. Hope to see you for a glass of champagne soon!
