F. Scott's Restaurant & Jazz Bar reviews from OpenTable diners
  • A southern Welcome with Great food
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 5/10/2014
    We are from Arizona and heard of F. Scotts .. . our plane was delayed and we were assured that there was not a problem. When we finally arrived to Tennessee .. Wendy was on the phone with us assuring us that our anniversary was not ruined. A SOUTHERN WELCOME!! The food was outstanding, the service was superb and the live jazz band playing in the background was romantic. Wendy and her team welcomed us and gave us some pointers on what to sight see. .. .F.Scotts started us on the right foot for a great weekend.

    F. Scott's is simply the best of Nashville... I am awaiting the opening at their new location with bated breath! The food is always an exciting experience, bite after bite. The service is warm, family-like, knowledgeable, and professional. The entire staff cooperates to give their guests a "10" experience in every way - from the welcome, the service, the wine, the food... It's a gem. F. Scott's is part of why I fell in love with Nashville.

    The restaurant is closing within the week & it had great wine & drink specials. We went there on our yearly trip to Nashville from Fl to Mi. Our 34th wedding anniversary we had the beef tenderloin dinner with scallops as a appetizer, & Finished with the apple crisp & coffee, the food was great. But what made the whole evening was our server Matthew, we hope he's at the new site on west end rd when it opens. We will be back, The Bluebird Cafe was a perfect ending to another great night in Nashville. Dennis & Debbie.

    I had the special soup of the day which was carrot. It was so good I forgave dessert and had another bowl of the soup. I also had the rack of lamb which was cooked perfectly. I hate the fact you are closing even though you are opening another restaurant in the fall on West End. Overheard one of the waitstaff telling a guest that it will be more casual food.

    I was most impressed with our waiter. His attention to our needs was noticed and appreciated; not to mention his above board care and concern for my gluten-free needs as a person with celiac disease. It is always very scary for me to eat out in restaurants but he took the time to understand your menu and communicate with the chef prior to our arrival and communicate options to me via a menu with hand-written notations. His service was above excellent, and he was very friendly but non intrusive. The atmosphere was just what my party needed for our "girl's night out" and the bar and music after dinner was the perfect end to a wonderful evening. Thank you!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 5/2/2014
    We had been to F Scott's a few months ago and it was a great dinner. With the restaurant closing and relocating we decided to try it befor it closed. The food was fair. Our server was very nice but he was busy and we had to wait for water and beverages. The restaurant looked a bit run down. Maybe that's why they are moving.

    My girlfriend and I had the privilege of dining here on one of their last nights before their move to West End Ave. Our waiter Ed was incredibly helpful and made our evening extremely easy and exquisite. The food is VERY expensive- ended up spending roughly $170 on just 2 people...however for a special occasion it would be hard to beat.

    It is half-price after 9 (for most items)! My food was hit or miss. Some was delicious (pomme frites!, the duck) and some was off (the paella was all pepper, the pasta was bland). The waiter started off great and then went down hill. Loved the jazz music coming from the bar. They are closing May 11th, 2014 - so go now if you want to!

  • Last dinner there
    Disappointed
    Dined on 4/26/2014
    Because of the restaurant closing and moving to new location, this was our last dinner in the current F. Scott's. The food was not particularly good, which is unusual, and the ambience was terrible, in part because it was prom night and the young adults didn't know how to behave in such a restaurant. Given the changes described for the new restaurant, will have to find another to celebrate special occasions. We've gone to the current F. Scott's for over 12 years with many great memories. It's clear the restaurant owners are more concerned about gathering more customers nightly than having loyal customers. Such a shame.

    We came for the food's reputation as being locally sourced. We loved the Jazz ambiance. We enjoyed the unique food choices and pairings...when is the last time you saw rutabagas on a fine dining menu? The warm spinach salad was nothing you'd expect,... from the presentation, texture, flavor,...all very original, as well as delicious.

    The for was very good but not amazing but the Italian cream cake was fantastic, favorite part of the meal. A cool place to eat with a neat changing menu. I appreciate the attention to detail on each plate but can not give it 5 stars because I feel it could have been better.

    Excellent service and food, but we were seated away from the bar area and towards the back and never heard any of the jazz music. I think that took away from the experience; but besides that, we were ecstatically pleased with our experience. Please don't get rid of the beef cheek dish when you move locations. That will keep me going back to F. Scott's.

    The experience was good but not fabulous and for $200 we wanted a bit more. Our waitress must have been new. She was sweet but not yet confident in describing the food or answering questions. The food was very good - no complaints - it just didn't wow us. My husband got the special pork dish and I got the 6 oz filet. Both were just fine. We split 2 sides: braised brussel sprouts (which were awesome) and the tomato/pancetta mac and cheese that needed a bit more kick to it. We did not get dessert. The best part of the night was sitting in the jazz lounge after dinner for drinks and great music. It is very lively in the lounge and if we came back, I'd spend my time and $ here. You can eat in the bar but it is loud--as it should be.

    F. Scott's is a wonderful place to dine. We had the pleasure of visiting this past weekend for a Birthday occasion and left with nothing but a positive experience. Our wait staff was incredible and the food was absolutely splendid. They made the birthday occasion very special, and I would definitely recommend F. Scotts to my other friends and family looking for a great dining experience. My only suggestion would be to have the jazz music available through out the entire restaurant. It was rather quiet where we were sitting and the main reason I picked F. Scott's was to be able to hear jazz while dining.

    What an enjoyable meal! From having my reservation verified, to our server Brooke, and an amazing meal - perfect evening. Ambience was nice, with diners not bunched next to each other, the music was at the perfect level for conversation. Brooke was very knowledgable in her explanation of the menu, and timing the meal. The food was fresh and very enjoyable! Loved the scallops, salmon, flatbreads and room for italian cream cake. I would recommend to friend for a special evening!

    We dined here as we were interested in listening to the jazz (M-Sat) and enjoying a good meal with my college aged nephew. Ask to sit in the front area if you are going to dine and want to hear the music. We stated with Braised Rabbit Crepe. Loved it. Had the Linguine alla Bolognese, NY Strip and Beef Tenderloin. Though all of the food was very good, the Linguine was the very best maybe the best we have ever had.

    I would like more information about the ingredients for each choice. One of the party ended up with an ingredient they do not like. She did not enjoy the meal at all. I do not like their move to not include the sides as part of the price. I like choosing sides but find it hard to believe they need to charge over 7 dollars for a vegetable. My father had a steak, it came out, all 6 oz in lonely splendor, on a very large dinner plate; Not a good presentation. He had ordered a salad which, of course came on a plate that was too large for the serving. Personally I would like my meals to be proportioned towards vegetables instead of meat and grains. Here you have to work hard to get any vegetables.

    I'd never been to F. Scott's, and had heard good things about it. I was not impressed with the décor. It reminded me of a hotel restaurant. Very generic looking. The roasted tomato soup was probably the best I've ever had, and the breads were great. Getting entrees took a really, really, really long time. Once the food came out, it was piping hot (a little TOO hot, actually). The food was good overall, but not nearly worth the high prices. I don't mind paying over $30 for an entrée if it is something remarkable, but this food just didn't quite reach that mark. With all of the fantastic choices at this price level in Nashville, I won't be going back to F. Scott's.

    Had dinner here, which was suberb, followed by drinks at the Jazz Bar. The Bar is everything that the dining room is not; energetic, loud, cozy, and fun. However, the formal and quiet dining setting in the formal dining room is perfect for people who want to be able to carry on a conversation as a couple or with friends prior to going out for the night. Nothing was rushed and the food was amazing. Try: Porkbelly, Braised Beef.

    basically our waitress massively over sold everything. seems to be a trend these days in restaurants. they make it sound so good and rave how they love it so that it usually doesn't live up. the food is fairly bland. I had a vegetarian with us and she just ordered veggies telling wait staff that she is a strict veg and they gave her 2 veggies with ham or sausage in it. it was embarrassing. seafood was not very fresh tasting. Music is good and ambiance is ok. took a long time to get served too.

    I have to admit I was expecting a great variety of food selection. My girlfriend and I only had a few selections to choose from which was very disappointed. I ask the waitress which was very helpfully why only a hand full to choose and she stated it was reduce due to valentines. The environment was indeed good. But I will not recommend because of the selection of choices and I feel that it was over price.

Yummy simple salad. Italian cream cake delicious. Strawberry bellini! Wonderful wine list. French brother-in-law impressed so must be great!! Nice jazz in background from bar area.

    F. Scott's is one of Nashville's gems! The key word is consistent. F. Scott's is always consistently great. The food is always delicious and rather 'cutting edge' without being pretentious and the service is always above par (a rarity for Nashville). I wish them the absolute best as they relocate to West End though as a Green Hills resident, they will be terribly missed.
