    We visited Kitchen Notes for the first time on a Saturday to celebrate my birthday. The ambiance was wonderful - not too loud, and a peaceful color palate. Felt a little like eating at a kitchen table - cute S + P shakers, and water jugs. Loved the biscuits and jam! Our server was delightful, -made good suggestions. However, my daughter ordered the Nashville Cracklin' Hot Pork (she didn't know that cracklins' are fried pork fat) and was a little disappointed in the slim amount of meat on the ham hock. She loved her side dishes, though - especially the collard greens (very southern!) Had some trouble cutting the meat/cracklin off of the bone. I had the evening special (salmon over brussel sprout and black eye pea salad) - good!!

    Our small group had breakfast there and the service was terrible. No one ever refilled our coffee and one guest had to ask 4 times to get his pineapple juice. They were slow to seat people, too. Don't go there, if you're in a hurry.

    The restaurant has an impressive contemporary vibe and we were immediately seated in the area we requested. Good start. However, I was disappointed in both the food and the service. I had heard about the biscuits served before meals but they didn't arrive until couple of minutes before our lunch. They were rather dry, nothing special. The menu is very limited. My patty melt was charred. At the end of the meal, we had to search for our server. Water was never refilled. It was nice to see the beautiful Omni, but lunch at Kitchen Notes was disappointing.

    +The double-double burger was very good. The best burger I've had in a while. - The large booths are used for large parties & also couples-one couple on each end. Not a great idea unless you want to listen to the other couples conversation. Great way to learn about your competition or someone personal problems.

    My daughter asked to have her 15th birthday celebrated over brunch at Kitchen Notes! It is such a beautiful restaurant and a delicious place to eat. The buffet is the best in Nashville. We have eaten here no less than 7 times and each time is just as wonderful as the last. The biscuit bar with local jams and honeys is so much fun. The fruit is always fresh and delicious. They will make pancakes and waffles and bring them to the table - no waiting in line. We had a wonderful server who put a candle in my daughter's stack of pancakes - the perfect touch. Only gripe: I do wish those staying in the hotel would realize that this is a nice restaurant and to dress accordingly. Bed head and pj-type clothing is out of place here.

    We live in Nashville, and chose the restaurant for a convenient downtown pre-show dinner. The wine list didn't indicate much thought or care - only basic, industrial-type selections here. Service was very slow, and the tables too tightly spaced for a small crowd in the large room. I had higher hopes for the food, which was fair at best. It's a beautiful hotel, and my daughter recently had a very nice breakfast there, so elements of the place are working. But dinner was a real disappointment in a crowded field of much better downtown options.

    I have been to Sunday brunches at several Omni Hotels and they are always good. This one was perhaps the best. Fresh ingredients and imaginative variations of southern style foods made this a very good choice. Our server was fantastic even though this is a self service buffett type arrangement she provided the type of service you'd expect at a high end table service establishment.

    There for the Sunday brunch and the much hyped Biscuit Bar..THAT was the disappointment. 3 different kinds of room temperature biscuits--no attempt to make them warm--and some jams and butter. Buffet was standard hotel food. Scrambled eggs were labeled as "spinach and scrambled eggs" but nothing green in the eggs. Oven roasted breakfast potatoes were lukewarm at best with strange mushy texture. The Benton ham was nice as was the blueberry sausage. I am not a fan of oven cooked bacon. The fruit was cut into small pieces that didn't work well with the serving utensils. Cubed cheese is not my favorite Service was pleasant enough but not overly attentive. Desserts were typical pre-baked pie crusts and tart shells with various fillings.

    I'm from NY, stayed at the Omni Nashville (which is beautiful!) for a weekend symposium. Had breakfast at Kitchen Notes twice and lunch once - ordered both from the a la carte menu and the buffet. You can't go wrong with either but personally, the buffet makes more sense as it's more cost efficient AND you can have so much more yummy varieties! Fresh foods and fruits, yummy-licious biscuits, very good variety of different foods for different tastes. Definitely highly recommend Kitchen Notes. Service was excellent and everyone's really friendly. Can't ask for more!

    After booking dinner at a late time, because there was nothing available prior to 7- we arrived to an empty restaurant with only two waitresses. Our Waitress was inept and messed up several items in our order despite her lack of other tables. Our appetizer was forgotten, items that were supposed to be held from our plates were on the plates and I waited literally 15 minutes for hot sauce. I will never dine at Kitchen Notes again. This is the second time I have eaten here- the first was just so-so. There are FAR too many great restaurants in Nashville to waste my time here anymore.

    We ordered the pot pie which was served in a mini cast iron pot and had lots of chicken - very flavorful. Also ordered the fried chicken which was a generous portion. Cauliflower was not memorable, but desserts were definitely something to write home about. Loved the banana pudding. Service was terrific, so we will definitely return. My only complaint about this restaurant is the wine selection and pricing. $15 for a glass of Kendall Jackson is way too high when you can get in the grocery store for $18 per bottle. All of the glasses of wine are 12 bucks for a six ounce pour and $14, 15 for a nice ounce pour. I wouldn't mind paying $13 or 14 if they offered high quality wine. I won't order alcohol at this restaurant unless they change it.

    When all your other choices are not available, you can get a reservation at Kitchen Notes. But, be warned the food is just okay and the service sure lacks the "Southern Hospitality", you would expect from a restaurant that is trying to be "Southern"! Somehow, the interior has this ultra-modern/Cracker Barrel theme, that simply does not work. (Come on guys, the battery powered lights in the kerosene lamps - without globes, I might add - simply looks tacky! The food was okay - heavy on very non-southern spices and way to over priced. I do not mind paying a higher price due to location but - unless you are going to a concert at The Schermerhorn or an event at the Convention Center, a bucket of chicken from the Colonel might be better.

    Made a rez for a special Sat night out for a party of 4 and it was very disappointing. The best items we ate during our entire meal were the sweet potato tots and biscuits! Everything else was ok or blah. Chicken pot pie was more like chicken mash with stuffing on top; mac & cheese was like out of a Kraft box; salmon was overcooked; meatloaf was edible; and coconut cake was more cheesy than coconut flavored? Service was slow or lacking. Luckily we ordered a nice bottle of wine... sad to say we will not be back.

    I was excited about trying Kitchen Notes before a concert last Saturday night. I brought my 14 year old daughter who is a picky eater but since KN had mac and cheese I knew I could go for a foodie experience and she would still be well fed. Her Mac and cheese was actually very good. It was very creamy, which she loves, and seemed to have multiple cheese flavors. Just what we would expect with a solid southern themed restaurant. I ordered a soup that had cabbage, bacon and blue cheese that was actually pretty good. My rub was with the main course. I ordered the bass. It was served with in season roasted vegetables and had several colors of cauliflower that I thought was fun. It was just a huge portion that needed more sauce and flavor.

    Great dinner at Kitchen Notes. This was our third visit and by far our best. Service and food had been ok on past visits, but they seem to have improved in all areas. Biscuits are wonderful. We had the beet salad, shrimp and grits and the Carolina Rice. Coconut cake for dessert. Service was excellent- attentive but not obtrusive. We are locals- good place to eat before concerts, Titans or Predators games or just checking out downtown.

    Took a dear friend for a birthday lunch wanting as well to check it out. Was more than pleasantly surprised! Everything was delicious and the bisquits and jam selection the bomb! Started with deviled eggs and some of the best fried green tomatoes with a beautiful homemade ranch dressing that I have ever had. Southern flair but also possible to have healthy as we both ordered the kale salad with blackened prawns. Delicious! The prawns had no tails which is very rare but I love as they are not as troublesome to eat. So impressed I am taking a large group for an upcoming birthday lunch! Would recommend in a heartbeat :).

    Gorgeous restaurant, knowledgeable staff but really sub par food for the price. We live local and feel the prices are higher b/c it's in a hotel and caters to out of towners. We ordered the sweet potato tater tots and they had a decent flavor though not anything exciting. I had the shrimp and grits and we also ordered the golden rice. Large portions but flavor was lacking.

    Random choice after a movie on a sat night. The staff were all exceptional, from hostess to our server they were all super. We both had the special rib eye and the food was really good, not your typical hotel restaurant food at all. Decent wine list and nice menu selections. We skipped the dessert menu and had biscuits and jam from the biscuit bar instead, that was a great choice!

    The staff here are great! They aim to please. We had a nice window table as requested. Food was quite good but fairly limited menu. The biscuit bar is absolutely worth the trip - as are the crabcakes and the beet salad. Greens were very fresh. Parking is free if you valet but we didn't know that so we parked in the Music City Center garage on our own - when the staff learned that, they gave us a discount coupon. Nice large pours of wine and really cold beer.

    We had a reservation booked in advance, upon arrival at our reservation time were told it would be another ten minutes. Normally would not be an issue, but since we were conducting business over breakfast, and on a somewhat tight schedule this was frustrating since we had made a reservation to avoid any delays. Waiter was great and food was delicious.
