Great food and great people!
My friends and I went there after watching the Great Gatsby and as a graduation celebration. It is a beautiful place and transports you to a different time. We got there a little early so we grabbed drinks at the bar. Highly recommend the Lemon Drop and the Perfect Peach Martinis. Live piano was playing and the bartender was great. I heard about the "Dine after 9" so it worked perfectly to go after a movie. Our waiter was awesome. I had the Lamb and risotto. It was amazing so delicious and tender. For desert we all shared but the best was the sorbet, strawberry, basil, and peppercorn. It was so good.

F. Scott's is the best, outstanding service, outstanding food and then move to the lounge for some great jazz!

F. Scott's was a great choice for my group's last night in Nashville. 1/2 off food after 9 pm--a wonderful surprise! With great live jazz music, fantastic food and true customer service (with an amazing wine list, I might add) we all had a great night at F. Scott's. Highly recommended!

Good with a serious negative caveat
We had 8 people at our table. The entrees were quite good with the exception of the two guests who ordered the chicken dish. The chicken was burned to the point of making the outer potion of the entree taste strongly of a burned charcoal flavor that permeated the entire dish. Anyone cooking or serving that dish could quite readily see that it was burned black. It should never have been served. I suggested that they send the entrée back but those two guests simply did not want to "start over" and just didn't eat the entrée. I did not feel that I could simply override their decision in that regard so I had to just let it go. It will affect my future dining decisions when I am in Nashville.

Although we were hoping for the live music advertised, we were extremely happy with F. Scott's service and food. The flowers I ordered were on the table when we arrived and "Happy 22nd Anniversary was printed on menus that we took home. The even wrapped them in a gold bow. Nice touch!!
The wine list was extensive and well put together, but the food stole the show. From the rabbit appetizer, to the clam/lobster chowder, to the wild boar and after dinner drinks - everything left an array of satisfying flavors. The service was attentive without being annoying. Overall the experience was fantastic - just didn't know when the live music was playing - that would have topped it off.

We recently took my mom to F Scott to celebrate her birthday. It could not have been a nicer evening. The table was decorated with tiny stars!. Our server was attentive, knowledgeable, and good humored. The food was wonderful, and the chef was willing to alter one of the dishes to take account of my mom's preferences. The food service was also perfectly paced.
We also appreciated the quiet ambiance. Too many restaurants have so much ambient noise that it is impossible to carry on a quiet conversation. F Scott's has perfect acoustics for us, an old fashioned nice restaurant ambiance that feels like an adult dining experience, rather than replicating the noise level of a bar scene.

The service, the food, the wine and the experience.... Couldn't have been better!

Wonderful live music
Whether right there in the bar or more removed in the elegant dining area, the music wafts through as you drink and dine. Great food, great ambience. A very nice and elegant place to take friends and business clients.

My husband and I were looking
My husband and I were looking for an upscale restaurant with good food, not over embellished, and with a good atmosphere, sophisticated and not too noisy. We had invited a doctor from Vanderbilt and his wife and wanted to have a moderately quiet place so we could relax and talk. It was a great choice.
6/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best overall food and dinning experience in we have had in the Nashville area.
6/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
As always, F Scott's is an outstanding evening. Food is always fresh with well integrated flavors. The menu changes seasonally. Service is polished and professional. If you go there regularly you will feel like a welcomed family member.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love this restaurant.
Service was great.
We ordered the chops which were over cooked but delicious.

Memorable Dining Experience
My husband and I first went to F. Scott's on our first Valentine's Day together, over 10 years ago. We returned last Saturday to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. When we arrived, the restaurant had prepared a special menu, wishing us a happy anniversary - it was a nice touch. The waiter was knowledgeable and HONEST about his favorites on the menu. And...he did not steer us wrong. The rabbit confit appetizer was amazing! My husband had the pork chop which was also to die for and I had the filet with blue cheese butter. The filet was tender and cooked perfectly. We didn't try dessert but did enjoy an after dinner drink the bar, listening to jazz. Overall, a memorable night with wonderful food and service.
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was excellent, the waiter was terrific and the ambiance was wonderful. The soft jazz in the background could not have been better. A wonderful dinner was had by all four of us.
7/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved the music and service!
We went for a special occasion and had a great time! They even personalized the menu for us and we kept it as a memento! After 9PM they do half off the menu, so you can get a great deal! (Just make sure to tip the server off the pre-discount amount, that's such a pet peeve of mine!) We will go back for sure!
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had another great dinner with friends at F. Scott's. We dine out often, and have been to all of the "it' restaurants in town. Every time we come back to F. Scott's, we end up agreeing...It's the best. Service is spot on...food is always interesting and fresh (I even got to see one of the farmers delivering produce, while we were there. Then our server told us the stuffed squash blossom appetizer we shared...had just come in on that particular farmers truck. Our out of town friends were definitely impressed...and couldn't believe the manager remembered their names when he said goodnight to us. Oh, yeah...Live Jazz...WOW!
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was marvelous and has improved actually! Music was wonderful as always! Service a little iffy as waiters nor us could tell who was responsible for our table. Wonderful that raw oyster dish could be that fresh and good this far away from the ocean!
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love F Scotts. There are lots of local wholesome ingredients, beautiful presentation, and a great wine list. There is live jazz in the bar area most nights, and it is the right volume in the dining area, so I can still carry on a private dining conversation and enjoy the music too.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
My daughter and I dined here
My daughter and I dined here after picking it from the open table site. The food was very good, creative. The service was very attentive and the atmosphere was quietly elegant yet not stuffy. If I am in Nashville again I would dine there. The addition of a live jazz band was wonderful.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Extremely pleasant business dinner
My colleagues and guests were extremely vocal as they expressed their enjoyment of the meal. The food was perfect, the service impeccable, friendly, but unobtrusive, and very observant -- menu explained, glasses refilled, courses cleared. Overall, as good as one could hope for when entertaining important customers.

Art Deco and Dining done right
The ambiance at F. Scott's is divine, particularly if you appreciate the Art Deco era (as I do). The colors are muted, understated, and the artwork around the rooms contributes to the feeling like you've stepped back in time to an era when ladies were Ladies and men were Gentlemen. The cuisine was well-executed, with particular effort made to appeal to all the senses - artist arrangements, tactile experiences with the food, and above all delicious combinations of flavors. The jazz combo's music gently wafted into the dining area to add to the experience of the evening. All in all, a great place to relax, enjoy fine food and music.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was an excellent restaurant for "date night" for my husband and I. The food was great and jazz entertainment next door was convenient .
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took a group of cusotmers for a late dinner here and it was delicious. We were there during restaurant week and had a fabulous meal that was priced well and had the extra advantage of hearing some great jazz music from the room next door! The staff, including the person taking my reservation, were excellent!
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We used to dine here a lot,
We used to dine here a lot, then moved away for a few years. There is a new owner now and the menu has been updated to reflect current food trends which is a nice change. Always impeccable service and love the jazz bar!! It is nice that you can hear the music while dining but it is not overpowering. Then you can go to the bar after dinner if you want more of an up close music experience. A true Green Hills landmark restaurant, probably the only one left.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was a nice place not loud
It was a nice place not loud or to dark. Went for restaurant week to test it out. Was a bit pricey if you went off the restaurant week menu. Not sure about going back if it wasn't a special occasion. (Birthday, anniversary) I would rank up with jimmy Kelley's or Ruth Chris for prices. Service was very good and the waiter was friendly.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were visiting Nashville on a business trip and found this Gem of a Restaurant. Wonderful food, knowledgeable server who provided us with an excellent wine pairing recommendation that made for a memorable evening. Add the soft Jazz music gently adding to the ambiance and you will enjoy a Perfect Evening!

Out of towner
We're in the food industry. We love fresh products and unique, unexpected flavors. F. Scott's had all of this and more. We were there for Nashville Restaurant week and enjoyed getting a chance to try the 3 course menu.

best vegeterian anywhere
Chef makes a special dish every night using seasonal vegetables. Incredible.

Best meal ever!
Excellent dinner at F. Scott's! It's so easy to forget about this old stand-by with Nashville's evolving restaurant scene, but it has never failed us. Lobster, jalapeño and corn waffles were delicious, local tomato salad was fresh and both entrees were cooked to perfection. The bourbon brined pork chop was just about the best thing I have ever put in my mouth!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good find in Nashville
Service was very good, wine list & menu complete. My husband had the trout, said it was one the best he has had. Our friends had the pork chop, huge & very flavorful, the other had the Linguine , fabulous sauce. We would go again when in Nashville.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant was highly
This restaurant was highly recommended by a friend from Memphis who look her college son, husband and college son girlfriend. She came back to Memphis raving about this restaurant. Therefore, I decided to book on our next visit to Nashville.
We had a wonderful experience at F Scott Bar and Grill. My husband (Gastroenterologist) said the food portions were a perfect size. The food of course was delicious. After dinner we went to the bar and listened to a 3 man jazz band. My son who attends Lipscomb University is a musician and was very impressed and loved the music. My husband who never goes to a restaurant to listen to music loved every minute of the extra 45 minutes we stayed after dinner at the bar.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
As always, amazing food, impeccable
As always, amazing food, impeccable wine suggestions from Elyse, and great service all the way around. If they would just update the interior, this would be my favorite restaurant in Nashville.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Definitely a gem!
Special spot with amazing music but not too loud to enjoy a quiet, romantic meal - great food, staff.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Celebrated our daughter's 23rd birthday with the family. The waiter was great and the food was delicious. The menus had been personalized w/Happy Birthday and her name and they had sprinkled a bit of confetti on the table to make it festive! A fun evening!!
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Classy and current
I'm not in a position to enjoy the cuisine at F Scott's that often but I found the food to be excellent and the atmosphere stimulating. Having a live jazz band brings a certain quality to the dining experience that is not to be missed. I particularly recommend the scallops and stuffed squash blossoms.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
We ate here on a Saturday
We ate here on a Saturday night. It is a very romantic setting. Live jazz starts in the bar around 7 or 7:15, and you can hear it in the restaurant, but it doesn't overwhelm conversation. My companion had swordfish and i had the pork chop. They were both delicious and the sides that were with them were also delicious. The wine list had some interesting choices. The service was polished and professional, and everyone we encountered was very friendly. This is a lovely restaurant with some interesting food choices and great service. It is kind of a splurge, but it is worth it in my opinion. Valet parking is available and you should use it.

...and great music. Nice place for a special occasion.

Overall a great experience.
Overall a great experience. We were celebrating a birthday and it was the perfect venue for it. Quiet, very relaxing and serene.
The only blemish was that they forgot to add bleu cheese butter to two of our entrees. Had to wait for replacements.
Knowledgable waitstaff and very courteous.

Great food and service. We had a wonderful time. Ed was just the correct amount of helpful.

BEST MEAL EVER...
...and, I don't say this lightly!
We were promptly greeted and seated. Throughout the meal, service was impeccable. The food? Without any hesitation I can honestly say that it was the best meal that I have ever eaten in a restaurant. It started with my appetizer and just kept getting better and better. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Nashville!

Good for Business
Took clients here; we had a party of 8 total. We had very attentive service; the place was quiet as it was a Wednesday evening. There was live music but it was in a separate room and not loud. The menu is definitely in the spirit of farm to table and using as much of the animal as possible, with choices like beef cheeks and lamb belly. The flatbread was amazing; the choice that day was a tomato and onion jam with ham and cheese. The parmesan truffle fries were fantastic. For an entree, I chose seared scallops with the lobster butter, which were delicious. The only thought I had was that the interrior of the restaurant could use an update; maybe it's just where we sat.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Lived up to reputation
Went to celebrate my wife's birthday and our anniversary. Every part of the dining experience was spectacular. Food was great, service exceptional, even down to the personalized menus for our special occasion. Very well done
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a relaxing and extremely fun night. One of the best "date nights" I have had with my husband of 14 years.
The food really good, in fact I am still thinking about my lamb chops! A must try is a version of a Caesar with sausage biscuit crumble for croutons. What made the night over the top fun, was going into the bar for jazz and dessert. Great performance! Service was seamless. Well deserved Best Restaurant and Best Service awards.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Successful Special Evening
We were celebrating the anniversary of friends and the staff couldn't have been nicer! They decorated the table, had "Happy Anniversary" printed on our menus and we received special attention from the sommelier (and part-owner) who was just terrific. Great wine pairings with the food.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was wonderful, as always, at F. Scott's. But the presentation on the plate really lacks in creativity. The plate had one forlorn little steak on it, plus a side of squash in a white bowl. No color, nothing that would make you get excited about that meal. It tasted fine, however. And the atmosphere was, as always, superb.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Every time we are in Nashville, which is about 4 times a year, we have it hit F Scott's. They have the best jazz bar ever, so we at least go there for wine and music but usually include dinner too. Service is always great.
