Diner Reviews
  • "The biscuits, sweet potato tarter tots and Mac & cheese were excellent!"
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "The food was good, but a limited offering for a buffet at this price. Traffic flow was clumsy and uncomfortable. Some offerings didn't have serving spoons. The dessert table didn't have plates accessible. We will not go back."

  • "The fried chicken is Nashville style, better than Mom used to make, and can be prepared "Nashville hot" upon request. Watch out, it's serious heat. Our table had a variety of fish and chicken dishes and all were very pleased with the entrees and sides. "Smart casual" is how they describe the dress. Very unpretentious but nice enough to take clients (which is what I did on my second visit)."

  • "We ate several meals here while staying at the Omni, in Nashville. The food was great, and the service was very accommodating. One night, we needed to eat after our conference let out and they actually kept the kitchen open for us because we had someone who was underage and we could not eat at the other restaurant that had a 21+ age limit after 9. Breakfast was slow on the weekend, not the best service when they were slammed, but understandable"

  • "Went for sis in laws 50th birthday. They were running Washington state specials. Ordered dungeon crab flitter but they were all out. There were 3 tables with diner. Other appetizers were okay. Ordered crackling pork shank. No flavor who so ever. Other dishes were sub par as well. I don't usually write reviews but this was such a disjoint mentioned I had to."

  • "My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed brunch at Kitchen Notes. The was fabulous and plentiful. Our server, DJ, was pleasant and quick to refill our Mimosa glasses. The charcuterie tray was a nice addition and the gluten-free biscuits the best I've ever eaten. Loved the sausage gravy and my perfectly made omelette."

  • "Went for brunch – and the place looks really cool. The pancakes were the best I've had in Nashville. For the price though I was expecting a little more. The dessert bar was particularly disappointing. It just looked awful. Dirty plates stayed on a table for a long time."

  • "The people at the hostess stand were rude and disorganized. When seated, we immediately ordered two glasses of wine. The server said that biscuits would be right out. He came back 10 minutes later to take our order, still no wine or biscuits. 35 MINUTES later, he showed back up with our wine and biscuits. Thankfully, the food came shortly after that, but for entrees that cost $20-$30, these were bland and not worth what we paid for them. We had the shrimp and grits and the burger. The shrimp and grits tasted like unsalted grits and sautéed shrimp with a can of stewed tomatoes poured over the top. The only upside to the food tasting badly was that we didn't want to finish it and made it to our show in time."

  • "We had dinner there. I knew ahead of time that the menu would not be healthy. But my husband and I went there anyway for convenience . We were going to the Ryman for a concert.. Usual we can find something on a menu to eat, but this time it was a challenge. I realize that it caterers to Southern cooking. But we could not find any entree that was considered healthy. I got the kale dinner salad. My husband got the trout, but did not like the sides. The sides were very spicy but we were not told this ahead of time. However, the staff was more the willing to switch the vegetables and provide him with other ones. Loved the biscuits!!!!!"

  • "We had a party of 6 and the table was really cool where they sat us -- my guess is few restaurants have such neat tables for parties of 6-8 where you can actually get a reservation. They also had AWESOME biscuits. After that things go kinda' downhill. The menu LOOKS super tasty but most of the dishes that folks at our table had seemed to be missing a little something. I think most of their menu stuff is fixable -- so assuming they keep working at their menu this could be a really neat restaurant. And the Omni hotel is so cool and the area is so neat that food aside it's still a good option to consider."

  • "Upon entering the restaurant we were immediately impressed by the staff & ambience. We were seated relatively quickly & greeted promptly. We ordered our drinks and food right away and had biscuits and jam delivered to our table. The biscuits & jam were a nice touch and probably the best part of our meal. After about a 30 minute wait, our entrees were delivered. Upon first inspection we were optimistic as everything looked great, then we took a bite. Wow. Perhaps the salt and pepper shakers on the table should have been an indicator that we would have to season our own food? The trout was horrible, without seasoning & practically mush. The mashed potatoes were as equally disappointing, as was the green bean casserole. Chicken Pot Pie? Eh."

  • "The food was really good. The service not to much!! Should've taken the first when the waitress stood behind me and my husband to take our food (we were sitting at a table). Not only did we ask once, but asked 3 times, one of which consisted of a person who appeared to be management (she was dressed in a gray suit). All in all it took 15 minutes to get a soda refill and then had the nerve to only bring out a short glass (the original serving was a tall glass). By this time, I was getting the feeling they were trying to rush us out the door. I'm still not sure why our waitress couldn't handle her tables, since there was a separate staff to deliver food. The management has truly missed the boat on the staff needed for this establishment."

  • "This was my first time dining here with my family. The service was wonderful as well as the food. It is a comfortable setting right in the heart of Music City located in an absolutely great looking hotel! We will be back for sure."

  • "Kitchen Notes has the southern charm of nashville with the cuisine that goes with it. Great Brunch with a buffet made to order and all you can imagine. Dinner is a little quieter with a small, but unique menu with a twist on southern dishes. Service is exceptional!"

  • "Set in the middle of the new convention/Hall of Fame area, this restaurant inside of the Omni hotel is lovely. The decor is beautiful and the waitstaff friendly, even if they are a little slow. The Sunday brunch was delicious, good standby's were available (eggs, bacon, breads, etc), as well as more adventurous foods like salads, meats, cofffecakes. Everything was very delicious. I would come back in a heartbeat. Fun place to eat with a group."

  • "Our entire brunch experience was terrifying. From having to wait in line for valet for 20 minutes, which made us late for our reservation, to having to wait for a table another 15 minutes, even though we had a reservation, to not being served drinks, I went to the service station and poured our own waters, to being asked to pay $25 a plate for stale dry pastries and unseasoned southern "food", and last but certainly not least, being charged $14 for "complimentary" valet for brunch at their restaurant. A gorgeous hotel serving what Holiday Inn's serve at their complimentary hot breakfast bar. I wouldn't waste your time. They don't know how to run a hotel/restaurant/anything yet."

  • "I'm very picky and I was thoroughly pleased with the food. It is imaginative and very tasty. The biscuit bar is very cool and delicious.The bacon wrapped bison meatloaf absolutely rocked. The mac and cheese was very good. I will eat here again."

  • "I would nor recommend this restaurant, yet. I hope they will improve over time. The kitchen needs to work out the kinks. The restaurant is nicely decorated. The wait staff were pleasant and attentive The ambiance is good, at least in the rear of the restaurant. However, the food..... that's another story. In fact one order was pretty much inedible. The shrimp and grits dish was more of a shrimp and grits soup. The shrimp and sauce tasted OK, but the grits, of which there were few, were so salty they could be consumed. Because of the salty grits the whole, soupy dish was spoiled. I couldn't understand why the chef would allow this dish to leave the kitchen. Fortunately the manager did comp. However, the crab fritters were quite nice."

  • "Wonderful creative food, a very attentive staff and the beautiful environment of the new Omni Hotel. Do NOT miss out on the chance to enjoy this gem of a restaurant"

  • "First, I will have to admit Kitchen Notes was not my first choice for dinner. After having screwed up my reservations for another restaurant (my own fault) I looked for a restaurant with an opening on the day I would be in the area and the time I needed. I found Kitchen Notes available and booked it. The food was absolutely wonderful. The salads were crisp, and well seasoned. The biscuits were just right. My girlfriend opted for the catch of the day (a blackened sea bass) and I had the Wagyu beef. Both dishes were beautifully presented, well portioned and delicious. The wine paired well with the whole meal. The service was prompt, cordial and attentive. I will be back."

  • "I try to go to a new restaurant in Nashville once a week. Kitchen notes was one of the best! From the hostess, to the server, to the kitchen staff saying goodbye to us the service was spectacular! Food was fresh, interesting and delicious! Been telling people about the restaurant since we left Friday night!"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Kitchen Notes offers a variety of unique dishes. I highly recommend the fried green tomatoes and crab cake appetizer. The bison meatloaf was delicious! Great place to dine before concerts downtown"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Enjoyed our meal here immensely. Best crab cakes I have ever had. Interesting take on shrimp cocktail - pickled! Very good! Biscuits were wonderful and my dining mates enjoyed the bison meatloaf and fried chicken. We will be back. Service was very good. Hotel is gorgeous. Kitchen Notes is, too."

  • "The front tables were way too close and in a noisy area. We requested that the hostess seat us in a quieter section and she was very accommodating. The menu is quite different from anything we've ever seen, but everything was excellent. The waiter was on the ball, the wine was excellent, and the presentation was top notch for every course. While the price was pretty steep (over $175 for the two of us with 1 glass of wine each, including tip) it was after all, Valentine's Day. The rose for my wife was a nice touch!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "First I must say that I love the Omni. I live in the area and host events there and recommend it as the place for guests to stay. Because it was an extremely cold night and it was Valentine's Day weekend, our last-minute guests from Atlanta were looking for something easy. The hostess could not find our reservations at first.It took 15 minutes to get everyone's drinks, which seemed to come from the bar one at a time. The menu was severely limited due to Valentine's Day. Two of us just gave up and simply asked for a burger, when our intention was a much nicer meal. The burger was pre-formed, like you get at a fast food place. Everything was just barely okay, which is not what we were hoping for."

  • "There's nothing like starting your Sunday at the vibrant Kitchen Notes. Surrounded by visitors from all around the world, best biscuits ever and to be greeted by a "beverage bar," makes this a perfect spot. It's not quaint. But, it is fun. I've spotted several local celebs enjoying time there also. A brunch that offers something for everyone."

  • "Second time we ate at Kitchen Notes. The price for a dinner for three with no alcohol was $111.00 with 18% tip which was very overpriced for three entrees and no dessert. The food was fair with the advertised trout supposedly coming with a green bean casserole side which never came. The chicken pot pie was good, but not worth $19.00 (maybe in Tokyo!). The shrimp and grits was very good. Fair to good food with below average atmosphere in the standard hotel overflow restaurant means we will not recommend this eatery. There are several others in the area which are significantly better."

  • "The food was great - had the fried chicken bucket and the fixings that came with it were delicious. The service was very much lacking - our drinks were messed up. it took forever for our waitress to take our order. we were rarely checked on while we waited for our food - needed a refill on my drink and water. Typically we always leave a gratuity of 20% but since we were not please with the service we left 15% (we were a part of 3 - fyi). The next day we came to see our on credit card statement that the waitress decided to change the tip amount to 20%! We did call the restaurant and complain and he said that the adjustment will be made."

  • "My wife and I both enjoyed Kitchen Notes. I had the shrimp and grits, and my wife had the crab cake. Very satisfying and an excellent experience. It was a great place to eat with great ambience before a concert. I'm sure we'll be back."

    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Very disappointed in the overall experience. It took nearly 1 hour for food to come out after ordering. Once the food was out, it was relatively bland tasting ... certainly not worth the wait. Service was not good, either. Server never refilled water pitcher and did not check on table to see how food was upon its arrival. The restaurant tries to do Southern cuisine that Nashville is known for, but falls short in many areas, including price, service and most notably quality of food."

  • "Iced tea came after lunch along with biscuits. We had group of six. We were charged two bucks to split a grilled cheese sandwich. Not well managed. Needs fixing to deal with convention crowds. We liked menu with southern flair."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "It's ok, but there are plenty of places in town to get fried chicken and biscuits that don't cost $18. Let the hotel guests have this one. Better, tell them about the Loveless or Gus' or Prince's or Bolton's or...."
    Dined on 1/12/2014
  • "Quite the variety of food stuffs, from the ordinary breakfast fare (eggs, bacon, sausage, cereals, etc.) up through boiled shrimp, fancy ham, ribeye, and then onto lovely danishes, pies and other delectable desserts. Highly satisfied, and at under $20, a great deal too."
    Dined on 2/2/2014
  • "Wow. I had the garden breakfast sandwich which came out and blew my mind. Hands down best biscuit sandwich I've ever had. Fully gourmet, but not fussy. Delicious. Service was outstanding, even for breakfast."

  • "They have unusual items on the brunch buffet...but not so good. Waffles have weird flavor. Omelette/waffle station on a Sunday is a cluster. Only 2 waffle irons and 2 fry pans for omelettes. One syrup. It is just not set up for the size of the restaurant. Definitely needs improvement in the food quality."
