Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I celebrated our 18th anniversary. Even though there was a mix up in our reservation, the wait staff went above and beyond to make things right. We would certainly dine here again."

  • "The restaurant looks lovely, the service was fine (not great), but the food descriptions are not clear enough for a first timer. Pasta with Artichokes is the title, but it is an 'artichoke cream sauce, with the artichokes pureed' ....so actually, no artichoke to be seen or really taste. When it arrived I thought it was the wrong dish and asked for the menu to re-read the description. I ate it, and it was only fair. And why no artichoke pieces? Anyway, tried again, also underwhelmed. I don't eat seafood, maybe that is their strong point? Lovely decor!"

  • "My daughter said the filet was excellent, my rack of lamb was fair at best. Lovely place, very hospitable, would go again but order beef."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "This is the second time I've been, first time for brunch. Both times I've left feeling like the restaurant is overrated. Everyone is nice, food is good but there was really nothing remarkable to report on."

  • "We went to dinner here and REALLY enjoyed our dining experience! We were staying in Cool Springs and wanted to eat at someplace non-chain owned and local, and we are so happy we made the choice! LOVED the she-crab bisque, the warm goat cheese salad was wonderful, and I was delighted with the herb crusted salmon. My husband's ahi dish was perfect and so was his carrot cake. From start to finish we couldn't have been more pleased. We will visit again next time we are in the Nashville area, for sure."

  • "Took out of town guests on a Sunday night. We all loved everything! Our son was given special attention and got his good first-very helpful. Service was outstanding and so was the food. Our waiter, Vernon was both personable and efficient. Highly recommend."

  • "Be careful when ordering beverages as they ended up costing more than our meal!"
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "I went there with others that had been before and their description while very good still did not accurately describe the experience. Food was excellent and it was such a well mannered place that even a well known celebrity was there feeling very comfortable. The servers were very professional and on top of their game. I will certainly return soon!"

  • "Great time @ Mere Bulles! Walked in and they were waiting on us...greeted warmly and taken to our table. We had a fabulous server, V. He was attentive, humorous, and took care of our every need. He treated us like old friends. This restaurant was the first recommended to me when moving to TN 8 years ago and I continue to bring friends and family here for the filet, carrot cake, creme brûlée, and impeccable service."

  • "We took a friend out for her birthday for lunch. There were 6 of us. Our waitress handled everything expertly and without 'batting an eye,' as one might say. Food was delicious and served hot and quickly. No one wanted dessert, but we got it anyway--so good and it was a birthday!"
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Great food and friendly staff. Our waitress Natasha was great. Throw in the half price wine by the bottle and it doesn't get any better."

  • "We chose this restaurant for our "date night" because of the reviews on TripAdvisor. We have learned to do our homework when it comes to restaurants and hotels when traveling. Whether it is for a date, special occasion, or just a great meal, Mere Bulles is definitely worth taking a look. The atmosphere is quiet and even seems private with multiple dining rooms in the setting of a classical manor house. The service is excellent and they were very attentive and gracious. The food was wonderful, perfectly prepared and plated with care. We had the Shrimp & Grits and the Asian Ahi Tuna. Both dishes were delicious and looked wonderful. We loved it so much that I would go into more detail but just don't have the space to do it justice. GREAT PLACE"

  • "We were in Nashville for our wedding anniversary and selected Mere Bulles because it was close to our hotel in Brentwood and because of the Tripadvisor and Yelp Reviews. It was a great dinner, to proceed our visit to the Grand Ole Opry. I had the Sea Bass, excellent, and my wife enjoyed the Lamb. The She-Crab Soup was to die for. I can honestly say that the two highlights of our trip from Ohio were eating at Mere Bulles, and seeing Little Jimmy Dickens make a rare appearance, and even sing a song, at the Opry. And check out the large painting in the main dining room (as well as the art work that is for sale)."

  • "My husband and I were visiting Franklin, TN for the weekend and chose this gem for our Saturday night date and we're so glad we did. The food was delicious and the service Abby provided us was outstanding. The most memorable thing was the dessert! We had the Split Apart Cake (strawberry short cake on top of NY cheesecake with vanilla icing - who wouldn't love this combo?)and it was absolutely amazing! It was, by far, the best cake I've ever had. All around, a great atmosphere and an enjoyable experience. We'll definitely be back if we're ever back in the area."

  • "Loved the omlette made right there fresh. The chocolate fountain is super. All good and the service was very good also. A great place to bring guests."

  • "We live right in Brentwood and love this local fave. A few times a year fro special occasions or when company is in town we treat our guests to Brunch. It is really delicious, great variety, and the atmosphere is lovely. The price is reasonable for the experience, and they offer a good array of adult and general beverages to make your brunch complete."

  • "Mere Bulles restaurant is a very good place to take your loved one for a special occasion. The menu items are somewhat pricey, however the food is of very good quality. You will not be disappointed. However, one item of note is to ask for a table away from the kitchen entrance. Is totally messes up the ambience of the restaurant."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "What's to say? The food and service were both excellent. Beautiful interior. We went there for our anniversary. I would highly reccomend for a special occasion."

  • "Staying in Downtown and very pleasantly surprised. The restaurant was a bit farther than I thought but worth the drive. Dishes were creative and very good. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and the history of the restaurant. It is an old house and is carved up into a series of intimate dining spaces. The outdoor patio was perfect for a cocktail before dinner."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "I dined at Mere Bulles to host a business lunch and found the food to be very flavorful. The service was exceptional: knowledgeable, attentive but not overbearing, and very friendly. I can tell that the staff takes pride in their service. They were able to accommodate us in a quieter section that facilitated conversation."

  • "First time tasters from Kansas found the place a pleasure. Food & Service suggests that anyone looking for a great place to eat must try this gem. The Vernon was a class act server. A pleasure to meet."

  • "We were spoiled with great restaurants we were accustomed to in Milwaukee WI since moving here 2 years ago. We have finally found what we have been looking for in Mere Bulles. Great ambience, food, service, competitive pricing for fine restaurant dining. Can't wait to return for a meal other than brunch next time!"
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Yes, we are foodies and can't believe we waited so long to experience this location of Mere Bulles! The ambience and history of this area is quite unique, and each of our selections were superb with the exception of the stuffed mushrooms which were a bit pricey for only two. Next time, we will just order larger amounts of the she-crab soup which was as good as any I have ever had...even in the Outer Banks of N.C. Our main entrees, the fillet and prime rib, were also very tasty and well presented with accompanying sides. We took advantage of the discounted wine by the bottle...so hurry in for this added treat! Extra thanks to Tyler for his attentiveness and shared love for Jerry Seinfeld!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "I was less impressed than expected. We were seated quickly and the wait staff was attentive, if maybe trying a bit too hard to be whimsical. We shared the battered artichoke hearts, which were nice. I ordered the Phyllo Wrapped Sea Bass and my wife got the Ahi Tuna. The food arrived within a minute or two of clearing our appetizer plates. That seemed a bit too quickly for my taste and made me pre-disposed to question the freshness. My wife's tuna was quite nice. My sea bass was good, but did seem somewhat re-heated. The fish itself was a bit dry. It seemed like a good dish at a Red Lobster; not quite the standard that I was expecting after reading other reviews. It might have just been an off night for my fish. Will try again."

  • "Enjoyed the dinner very much. Service was excellent and the wine the waiter suggested was very good. Had the special and it was very good. Desserts are outstanding and the crab bisque is exquisite."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "The food was fantastic - I had the she-crab soup that is their specialty and it was out of this world melt in your mouth! Then I had the Black and Blue Caesar salad. The salad was so unbelievably good. This restaurant will definitely be in my top 10. Wonderful staff. We had a reservation and did not have to wait. The music was imaginative and fun. It was an overall wonderful experience."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Clearly a hopping Saturday night with a wedding party in the private room. Slowed service substantially. All the portions were massive and the food was delicious. Had scallops perfectly prepared. Enjoyed the ahi salad as well. Too full for dessert. Had to yell to hear across the table for the first half of our meal..."

  • "I was celebrating my birthday with family from out of town and they had nothing but GREAT comments about the dinning choice. The food, service and overall ambience was spectacular! I'm so glad I made the decision to celebrate my birthday brunch at Mere Bulles. I use to dine at the resturant a great deal when it was downtown but hadn't except for special occassions since it moved to Brentwood. I definetly will be dining here more often. I can't wait to plan my next time!"

  • "This was our first time eating at Mere Bulles; I read all the reviews and frankly I can't understand why some my not be as pleased as we were. Everything was perfect; the meal was excellent, we were not rushed and the service was impeccable. It was my birthday and I had a complimentary dessert; I chose carrot cake which is served warm and is delicious. We'll be back, wish we had found you long ago! C"

  • "The brunch at Mere Bulles is consistently good. Service can be a little spotty and the lunch options can be hit or miss some weeks. The breakfast and dissert options more than make up for any one bad item on the lunch side. The cheese hashbrowns and French toast will make you forget you ever heard of a diet, the made to order crepes and omelets are as good as it gets."

  • "This was the first time dining here that someone I was with didn't enjoy their dinner. Mine was excellent had the sea bass wrapped in the pastry. Two pieces and had to take one home. I raved about the steaks, and my friend ordered a ribeye, it was tough, underdone and just really not what I had expected either. My friend isn't picky so when he wasn't happy I was surprised. I will go back, but next time, will say something to the waiter."

  • "We used to live in Chicago with all the wonderful restaurants. When my daughter requested a birthday dinner at a "special place" in Nashville, the place that came to mind was Mere Bulles. I have attended two Christmas parties at their place and taken business clients there for dinner twice and was happy with my experience each time. I can recommend Mere Bulles to anyone who is looking for a special menu, wonderfully prepared food, good atmosphere and great service."

  • "My girlfriend and I came here on Valentine's Day 2014 for a romantic dinner on a recommendation from a friend. The friend was right!! My girlfriend and I both absolutely savored the crab bisque! Service was quick once we were seated and the waiter very attentive but not intrusive. The phyllo wrapped sea bass was the best fish entree I have ever had. Crab cake appetizers are a must! The wine list is a wine-lover's dream, and the dessert...well...get the carrot cake!"
