Birthday Dinner; loved atmosphere
We took my friend here for a birthday dinner, and cabana proved to be a fabulous restaurant with it's own unique spin on everything. Not too highly priced, has a wide range of menu options for every wallet, and a unique menu with special takes on common dishes. Breezy atmosphere, love the set up, and the servers were very friendly. Great for a summer night!
Can't wait for an occasion to go back!

Had a bachelorette party dinner here and it was great! The food was fantastic, especially the truffle feducinni, and the wine list is good and fairly inexpensive. We have a great time and the service was fantastic!

Ambiance is great. Cabana has always been a favorite. The noise level can be overwhelming depending on who you arw aeound, just because they tend to draw groups into their restaurant. Love this place. Everyone we take is always impressed.

Great for Groups & Special Occasion
Cabana has become my go-to place for celebrating with groups, as they are flexible with seating and very accommodating with reservations. The service is always great, as is the food & drink!

Our "girls night out" was a wonderful dining experience. Newcomers were "wowed" with the "cabana" table.
Food and service both spectacular.

Mi Casa Su Cabana
We felt like we were at home from the moment we sat down. Our server Katie was informative, attentive, funny, always there when we needed her and yet, never interrupted our Girls Nite Out chat-a-palooza. The GNO deals on Wednesday evenings include some of our favorite menu items (for example, sliders on sweet potato biscuits or housemade chips with bleu cheese) and the cocktail specials are the perfect reward for making it halfway through the week!

Perfect Bachelorette Night
I was very impressed with this restaurant and we loved the cabana. I live in Nashville and hosted all the bridesmaids and bride for a Bachelorette weekend. It was a perfect place to take them. The menu had a variety of foods and prices. The atmosphere was unique and felt special. The waitress was friendly but not over bearing. Also, the drinks were great--The Cabana Sweetini is a favorite. Overall great night & great food.

Great! Great! Great!
My friend and I were in Nashville attending a conference and we're not interested in eating at ANOTHER bar. We both love trying new places and I found this through a local dining search and what a find!! Great ambience! Great staff! Great drinks! Great food! Great restaurant! We come to Nashville once a year and this will definitely be a new tradition.

Great Meal and Service
My wife and I enjoyed a great meal on a Saturday evening in the main room. The service was attentive, almost to a fault. The weather was pleasant enough for the waitstaff to open the garage style doors, which creates a nice ambiance. All in all, a good dining experience.

Way To Go !
Everyone at our table was very pleased with the food, preparation and the dining experience. The single biggest issue was the flow of the food to the table was too fast. The restaurant could easily become a five star location if they could improve the pace of the food to the table.
The waitress did her job very well. She was very peasant and answered all our questions with confidence.
We will be back. Thanks

Favorite restaurant in Nashville!
The food was amazing, the service was fast and great, and the restaurant was very cool. Would come back again in a heartbeat.

Great Spot for a Group
Cabana was a great find!! There was a group of six of us and we sat in one of the large cabana's which allow you to hook up your phone/ipod to play the music of your choice. The food and service were great - the next time we are back in Nashville we will be sure to return.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went for a bachelorette party, and it was easy to see why we were not the only party there! They have these cute enclosed tables, perfect for the bachelorette party convos, and audio hook-ups in each one. The vice of the restaurant was greatly enhanced by our super attentive and capable waiter (who was great eye candy and totally willing to play along -- thanks, Matt). Overall, AWESOME time!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not as good as previous visits
The food was as good as I remember from previous visits. Our server seemed a little rushed and inattentive during what seemed like a slow period. This was not my experience during previous visits. So overall I would still recommend this restaurant and just assume the server had a bad day.
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is a modern twist on southern classics! So good! The atmosphere is really cool at Cabana...the dim lighting, hip furniture, and big windows made me definitely want to go back. If you had a large party you could sit in one of the indoor cabanas and have a semi private dining experience. Definitely a place I want to dine at again!

NEW FAVORITE IN NASHVILLE
Have lived in Nashville for 25 years and this is truly one of my FAVORITE places! Great bar...great menu and when the windows are all open...WOW!

Urban Decompression Stop
What a wonderful relaxing environment that affords a great open airy vibe and serenity that completely invites you to stay and "decompress" after a long day.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service was great and the Catfish Sliders were just incredible. The cocktails were made just the right way and all the food was prepared well and quickly. Will be back again soon!!'
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Somehow I had manged to not eat at Cabana until Restaurant week. I will be back.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for private get-together
We had a gender reveal family gathering in our own cabana and could not have been happier with anything that Cabana had to offer.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Overall a awesome night!
The food was awesome, our server was cool, the atmosphere was amazing! The only thing lacking was this hospitality at the front door. Our hostess was extremely rude! Even with a reservation she treated us very poorly. And at first i had second thoughts about coming to cabana. However, once i was seated everything seemed to blossom into a wonderful night.

Fun mother daughter dinner
My daughter and I found Cabana via urbanspoon.We arrived at 6pm to a mostly empty restaurant and were seated immediately by very friendly staff to a patio table. We ordered the homemade potatoe chips. They were not really crispy average but enjoyable. My daughter ordered the pork shanks which were amazing!I tried the crab cake. the sauce served with it brought the whole dish up to excellent. I also tried the chicken fried steak from the small plate menu. This was served on a sweet potato biscuit. This was the best dish and wished we ordered a plate of biscuits!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great experience! My only
Great experience! My only complaint is that there was a group of women smoking outside which travelled over to the patio area... Not exactly enjoyable to have smoke in your face which eating. I wish the restaurant would have monitored this more.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Hadn't been in a long time and it was a hit all around. One of the best catfish meals I have had. Loved the private TV in our own booth. Great service. The Nashville restaurant week meals were all large portioned with great taste. Cabana did not skimp on their wine flyte selection. We will go back.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great prices. We went during
Great prices. We went during restaruant week and had catfish. the service and atmosphere were great.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Something for everyone
I was working in Nashville with my boss, who is a very cautious picky eater. I chose Cabana because it had a large varied menu with something to satisfy virtually every palate. I ordered their spicy shrimp & grits and surprisingly he did the same. This was an awesome dish...full of flavor and texture. If and when I return to Nashville, I definitely want to return to try some of their other offerings.
8/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
Perfect End to a Perfect Evening
We decided to go to Cabana's after an event and everything was absolutely perfect! The drinks, food, and the service was great and we will be back for "date night" next week!

Booth seating was great -
Booth seating was great - played own music - watched game - like a private party - great food

I made reservations at Cabana for a friend's bachelorette party and we all had a wonderful experience. We received friendly and genuine service and the food was wonderful!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
We met some friends and tried Cabana. We were able to get one of their cabana booths---very comfortable. Food was great. Fried tomato stack, trout, roasted chicken, ribs all were excellent. Great place!
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and service was good but the hostess took WAY too long to seat us since we had a reservation. The drink selection was good and reasonably priced.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and service
Fun food with a southern flare we enjoyed the cabana for our large group. Wait staff was attentive and helpful! We'll definitely be back!

Belmont Parents Weekend Dinner
We were in Nashville for Parents Weekend at Belmont University and tried Cabana based on a write up in a guide book. We were not disappointed! There were so many great choices that we had a hard time selecting an entree. My youngest son loved the alligator appetizer! The Mahi entree was fresh. I could go on and on raving about the food!!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Girls Night Out
Everything was wonderful. From our seating outside,to the ambiance, the service, and of course, the food. I highly recommend the shrimp and grits- the best I've ever had. A pork loin special and the sweet tea roasted chicken were also very good. Definitely order the biscuits with peach preserves- yum! We had a 7:15pm reservation on a Saturday evening, were seated promptly, and never felt rushed. A perfect evening!

Had a blast with my sister
Had a blast with my sister at Cabana! The staff were genuinely friendly and the service was great. I wasn't extremely impressed with the food, but the atmosphere of the place won me over. I'll come back, if only to get some wine and fries.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Daughter's birthday dinner couldn't have been better. The meal was excellent; service was outstanding and we ate on the front porch area which was perfect!
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great neighborhood gem. Cabana is open, airy and vibrant. Small plates with your favorite wine and/or cocktail makes this a delightful location!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first visit to Cabana, and it will not be our last. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. We never had to ask for a refill. The food was delicious. I had the steak, and it was the best steak I have had in quite a while. This dinner was to celebrate my birthday, and Cabana's made is a memorable one.
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun and unique
The food at cabana was fabulous. We had spicy shrimp with grits that was the best I've ever had. Salmon and risotto perfectly hooked and if course don't miss the fried green tomatoes. We had no room for dessert unfortunately hit will go back again and save room!
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful outdoor dining
We had a group of 6 for dinner and Cabana excels in groups. The menu is diverse; it is always a good thing when so many items look delicious! The starters of alligator and cheese grits were so good and the main meals didn't disappoint either. Our party varied from ribs to catfish sliders and everything in between. Service was prompt and excellent. Highly recommended for a fun night out.
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food, Service and Value
For starters, try the homemade potato chips served with crumbled gorgonzola and gorgonzola sauce. Yum! Had beef medallions and seared scallops for main course. Excellent, no leftovers even though portions are large. Great place. We'll be back.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
A must in Nashville!
Great experience at Cabana! Was late for reservation with large party but was still sat right away. Wait staff was very friendly and helpful. Great food and everyone enjoyed their meal. Prices were reasonable and a great ambiance. A must for a large party in Nashville!
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great for private dining groups
I love the cabana atmosphere and bring able to have privacy. We were not able to hook up the iPod for music after 10pm. Service was nice. Attentive wait staff. Good food. Nice wine and drink list.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good experience
We read about Cabana in the hotel magazine and decied to give it a try. We were very satisfied with the food and service. There were a lot of college people there but it was not real noisey. We plan to go again when in town.

Everything was great with exception of the wait. Even though I made a reservation, the table was not available for 20 minutes.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was amazing, the bison sliders are to die for! Our waitress was incredible as well! She was funny, kept our drinks full and was really ideal. I have no complaints at all about my experience. I took my boyfriend for his birthday, with two other friends and they all keep asking me when we can go back!
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was good and the service great. Has really nice rooms for groups. Was not a quite dining experience but lively and fun.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
generally consistent and good
I have been to Cabana quite a few times over the years. It is most always good, and it is generally consistent, and it is a tad less expensive than most Nashville restaurants in this broad category of quality. It can be quite noisy, but that makes for a good, robust atmosphere. Better as a singles and young couples scene, than for families I would say, but still ok for families if their kids are at least in mid to upper teens. large and varied food selection, and everything that our party of 4 ordered was quite good. not blow you out of the water spectacular, but very good and quite enjoyable. While not in my Nashville Top 10 category, still a solid recommendation with no disappointments, and fabulous for large groups.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Cabana is one of Nashville's true blue dining venues. The food and service is always impecable! It also has a modern and appealing feel, overall.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Best restaurant on Vandy's ToN
Not only does Cabana have great food, great ambience, and great service, it also is on Vanderbilt's Taste of Nashville, which means that we can pay for it with the "meal money" on our meal plan. This time, I had a special--grilled salmon with creamy mushroom risotto and arugula, topped with browned butter. It was absolutely delectable! However, Cabana is a little pricey, so I would reserve going to Cabana for special occasions--whether for a romantic date or a girls' night out.
