Rumours East a Hit with my Guests
Everything about the night was outstanding - my out of town guests loved the whole experience. Great people, great vib! Great place to entertain friends and clients!

Our first time there. We thought the food was very good and we took advantage of some good specials. However, the overall menu is somewhat overpriced, we thought, especially for the area.

Got the mussels appetizer
Got the mussels appetizer and they were the best I have had in years! I wish I would have just ordered that. I was very impressed, however, the linguine entree was very disappointing. While the pasta was homemade, it was stuck together and not cooked properly and the pasta sauce was very spicy which there was no indication it would be such on the menu. I would go there again but not ever get pasta.

Excellent wine and food
Great food prepared perfectly and nice selection of wines. The food choices are somewhat limited, but what they make is great.

Exceptionally good meal
I had the lamb chops, which were perfect, and came with an ample portion of a cold concoction of green lentils, kale, and I don't know what else. But it was one of the best vegetable accompaniments I've ever put in my mouth! The food really was outstanding. I'd say the menu was quite limited, and there were only a couple of main dishes that appealed to me, but the one I picked was a real winner. The place is a little Bohemian, and the young host and waitstaff were friendly, but not very polished, which was fine with me, but the service didn't quite rise to the level of the food.

Elegent, classy, bohemian.
Elegent, classy, bohemian. I would not rave about the food—rather than taking all the attention, with the atmosphere it made the whole evening beautiful.

Very good but value is an issue
Went on a Wednesday and there was a nice writer's night, which also made it quite difficult to talk over dinner.
Food quality and presentation was very good. We dine at nicer restaurants and are used to entrees not being large.
My flank steak with chickpea socca(?) was very well prepared and cooked to a nice medium, but probably not something I will remember a year from now. My wife got the scallops with peppers. She said they were very good also but had no other comment, besides that for $26, three scallops with no significant sides felt inadequate. Lowering the price or tweaking the sides would
Have helped us feel less wary of returning. Service was ok, but a little late in refilling waters and checking on us. They were busy for mid week?

An enjoyable meal
Although the menu was limited, the food was fresh, well prepared and nicely presented. We dined indoors; the atmosphere was conducive to conversation. Our waiter was nice but inexperienced; he didn't know the wines at all.

What a little gem! Rumors East has stepped it up in the past year and what a great menu , wine list and enchanted outdoor space! This is now one of my new favs.

great first visit
I had a friend coming in town for the night and wanted to eat somewhere new. I had heard about Rumours East, and wanted to try it. I really enjoyed the ambiance and food. The wine selection was decent, but I honestly expected more selection. Our service was just okay. That is my only complaint.

Top-notch food and service
We came to Nashville from Brooklyn for a getaway weekend before we become parents in the fall. Rumors East was our Friday night choice. We were late to our early reservations (we were heading to the Grand Ole Opry after) and they were very accommodating. I had a fun cocktail and they made an ever better "mocktail" for my wife, who appreciated something sophisticated without alcohol. The bartender brought out the drinks. She got a vegetarian entree and I got a salmon dish: the plates were unique, original, perfectly portioned, and novel. The waitress was attentive. The outdoor garden where we sat was gorgeous - the place is "nice" without being pretentious. It was cozy and upscale at once, and the food spoke for itself. Totally worth it.

This was a fantastic meal
This restaurant has all the pieces together now as the food was incredible and the service was the best we have ever had at Rumours .

Perfect Summer Night Atmosphere
Had a great summer night at Rumours East, very beautiful outside dining as well as a vintage house indoor seating. My husband and I planned a double date night with some long time friends. The drinks menu was superb from cocktails, high gravity beer to their long wine list. The server was very friendly and helped us choose a wine bottle that suited the whole table. Everyone LOVED the wine. When our appetizers came out they were a bit on the smaller side (great for just a couple), so we decided to order two more appetizers & everything was pretty delicious. Everything was great and reasonably priced. Overall great find!

Fantastic meal and vibrant scene
We went to this local restaurant to see if it will work for our daughter's upcoming wedding, the rehearsal dinner specifically. It had rained earlier and the outdoor space was not conducive for service. There was a fun music event going on and a local celebrity was there which may have gotten in the way of our service, but we understood, and our meal was fantastic. We had a fresh salad with toppings from their garden, lamb, pasta, and chocolate torte; wonderful cocktail and wine. We enjoyed everything we had; the pasta was perhaps the best I have ever had, fresh and thin. Normally, we would have been sitting outside or in the dining rooms, but due to the rain and the music, the bar area was our only option…I don't mean this as a complaint.

First visit and invited friends.
First visit and invited friends. Asked for quiet location and outside was suggested. Was a beautiful night but the area around our table was littered with leaves and spider webs. Service was quite nice and food was outstanding. Did pick the least expensive cabernet but thought it a little weak for $11 a glass. Will go back sometime.

AMAZING ourtdoor patio
Rumours East is definitely a restaurant to revisit! The outdoor patio is just the right combination of relaxing and romantic. It's my own backyard patio away from home, where someone else bring the drinks but I feel right at home. It's a gem.
The entrees were good - but the appetizers and side dishes were the bright spot of our dining experience.
Would absolutely recommend for summer night dining.

Great food and service. Everyone is always so nice and the food is always so yummy

Great food! Great atmosphere! We left the restaurant before getting dessert because our server never returned. After waiting ten minutes, I had to ask the hostess about dessert. Overall, great dining experience.

The food was excellent, wine was great (and $2 off by the glass on Thursdays!).
The menu catered nicely to some vegan and gluten free restrictions (the honey tofu and the kale salad were perfect) , and otherwise the salmon with pumpkin soup was incredible.
The porch area was great with the lights on perhaps the last warm night of the season.

Wonderful food, wonderful wine. Food choices are limited, but wonderful.

This place is awesome. Wish they had more vegetarian options but we pieced together a pretty amazing meal and our server was super knowledgable and understanding to course it out for us in a way that made sense and was fun.

Great dinner and wine!
This place was absolutely amazing from start to finish. The bartender had great recommendations on wines (they had the best list I've seen in a long time) and every dish was fabulous! I will definitely be retuning if we come back to Nashville!

Everyone loved their food. The waitstaff was attentive and polite, offering suggestions. We were a party of 7, seated in the bar at a large table. It was quiet enough that we could talk with everyone at the table.

Cozy, Good Food, Interesting Drinks
I took my vegetarian 26 year old daughter who knows drinks and is vegaratian and she was as enthusiastic about this as I was - what more can you ask for?
