    I loved the food. It was not overly complex. It was simple food cooked to perfection. I consider myself a fried chicken aficionado and the nod to Nashville's hot chicken was amazing. However, my favorite thing on the table was the tomato and okra stew. I cannot wait for my next trip to Nashville.

  • First Visit to Husk
    OpenTable Diner Since 2004
    Dined on 10/26/2014
    After reading all the hoopla regarding Husk we decided to give it a try earlier this week. The atmosphere and service were both exceptional. The old home remodeled with nice artwork throughout made for that "at home" feel. The menu is unique and modified daily. With unique comes a challenge to decipher what all the ingredients are and how well they fit into to each other's palette of taste. The fish dish was tasty, but the beef was too fatty & tough for my liking. The noise level was loud only because of table of severly inebriated birthday party goers adjacent to us. Both deserts were good--the vanilla ice cream & pecan cake. The wine, beer and cocktail list should please just about everyone as long as you don't want Pinot Grigio.

    My husband and I were first-timers to Husk and the food was exceptional. I had the catfish, he had the chicken - both were artfully cooked with sides that created flavorful explosions on our palates. Incredible and memorable. However, don't expect this experience to come cheap and be prepared to leave the table with plenty of room for dessert. These meals are not designed for the hearty eaters.

    This is a must if you are in Nashville. The food is a wonderful mix of fresh ingredients that are hard to imagine together but end up waking up all of your taste buds. You have to try one of the Husk cocktail creations like the Parasol. We had to try a starter which we usually don't do but we didn't regret it. After the starter and the main corse we had to try dessert to see if it was as good as everything else and it did it disappoint us. The server was excellent and explained all of the dishes and gave excellent recommendations. The best thing you can do is not eat all day before you go to the Husk so you can try everything. Make sure you make a reservation well in advance.

    Couldn't wait to finally get to Nashville and try out Husk. I was not dissapointed. Their playful use of ingredients did not fail to amaze me. The way they use locally sourced, in season ingredients to delight your palate. They reinvent classics like Steak tartare and elevate the exerience. The playful use of crispy potato strings within the beef and then topped simply with chopped celery for a fresh crunch; catfish that wasn't fried but delicate without any muddy taste. If only i had room for desssert, but that will have to wait until the next visit!

    We had a wonderful evening of food, wine and conversation with a friend we haven't seen in ages. The service was pitch perfect. The food was delicious and surprising but not at all pretentious. My 79 year old mother declared the oysters were the best she's had in her life- and she's been eating oysters since she was a toddler! Lovely, lovely place to which I hope to return.

    The place was beautiful but every other aspect was sub-par. Service was indifferent - we were not offered bread although other tables were. The server split a salad used our too-small bread plates for that. I had catfish which was just OK. It had a lot of creative ingredients that didn't truly work together. The hangar steak was tasteless. We won't be back.

    Such a treat to find outstanding food (quality and freshness of ingredients, and proper execution and presentation), and very informed servers. They did an excellent job in describing and recommending dishes (including the wine selection). Very refreshing to find an overall impressive restaurant in Nashville. Having previously dined at Husk in Charleston, it was great to see the consistency with both locations.

    One of the most unwelcoming restaurants I have ever been to. The rude and inconsiderate behavior of the receptionists hits one in the face as one walks in. And then it gets even worse. The trio of people at the reception treated our party as if we were interfering with their routine, held us waiting while chattering amongst themselves and made us feel unwelcome. Quality of the food was average at best and arrived late. Our waitress was very good and the only bright spot.

    Each dish combined interesting flavors, well explained by our otherwise world-weary server. However for a party of 4 the shared 3-piece appetizer was awkward, with no offer to add a 4th (even for an additional charge), something that would have been noticed and cheerfully rectified by a less self-satisfied place. Likewise the 4 small rolls were quickly enjoyed and the basket whisked away with no reappearance nor offer of more. Entrees and desserts were tasty but on the small side. A manager? Owner? stopped by the table happy to praise the chef but did not ask about our experience and I suspect took us for hick tourists. So while everything was fine and professional, it was not particularly a warm experience and not one I would return to.

    Everything about Husk is amazing. From the gracious and present service to the beautiful ambiance, and the delicious food. Our server was incredibly nice and knowledgeable about the menu, offering suggestions on sizing, sharing and flavor palates that were spot-on. One of her suggestions could have been an entree or shared appetizer called Vegetables 5 Ways that had unique takes on grits, hush puppies, etc. With 3 of us sharing this was a perfect way to sample the cuisine. They were flavorful, savory and satisfying while being equally creative and true to their southern roots. The grits was ridiculously good. The downstairs had windows and lighting with a magical view of the pear vines that felt like you are eating in an outdoor garden.

    I was expecting a stellar experience, based on rave reviews. The house is lovely, with espaliered pears lining the drive. The downstairs is lovely with lots of glass, but there was a strong ( and not happy) fish smell. Fortunately upstairs didn't smell, was airy and very pleasant. The wait staff was fine. But the food...I ordered the vegetables, pRtly because of the interesting description of the 3 dishes by the waiter. What a letdown. The grits were not hot, only lukewarm, and didn't have much taste. The egg(he said it had been baked an hour - come on!) was runny runny runny. Ew. The zucchini was ok and the beans were ok, but where was the excitement? My friend's pimento cheese sandwich was very good - wish I'd gotten that!

    Well...not so much - in my estimation did not live up to the hype! Location good, dining area is nice but not warm, service spotty, wine list constrained; our server was disengaged and aloof and not particularly interested in us (perhaps we didn't radiate cool?), after dinner asked us if we wanted to look at a desert menu, then never brought one - she was able to provide billing quickly enough.

    From the first sip of my Daphne's Wish signature cocktail, I knew that I was in for a treat. The service was good, I really enjoyed the atmosphere, and the good was phenomenal. It was my first time in Nashville, and to be honest, I only stopped for the night to try this restaurant. Very pleased that I did. I'm on a Southern Road Trip with a friend, and although Charleston was not part of the plan, it is now, so that I can try the original Husk. I doubt I'll regret it. Well done.

    The service was excellent and our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu. The entire evening was good and the selections we selected were good. My only complaint was when I asked for the ladies room, the hostess motioned down a flight of stairs. Maybe she did not notice but I had a cane and those steps were not an option. We would have stayed for dessert and other refreshments, but that was no longer a choice.
