- nice atmosphereBryBryDined on 3/8/2014Nice atmosphere, food was pretty good but not exceptional. Service was good. The biscuits were very good.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- characterBeccaDined on 3/8/2014Kitchen 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Brunch of DoomLaffyVIPDined on 3/2/2014Our 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.Special Features:
- Great FoodLazloNashvilleDined on 3/1/2014I'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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- I would nor recommend thislilly3mDined on 3/1/2014I 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.
- Don't miss this gem!!MusicCityRegularVIPDined on 2/25/2014Wonderful 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 restaurantSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great before concert venueRedRedWineDined on 2/22/2014Kitchen 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 downtownSpecial Features:
- Dinner and WinePounce1Dined on 2/22/2014First, 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great food... Better service!CrookDined on 2/21/2014I 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- GreatOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 2/15/2014Great food and atmosphere. My wife and I enjoyed all the food and the service was great.Special Features:
- Dissappointed. High hopes for OmnidanbedoreDined on 2/15/2014First 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.
- Nice Valentine's Day DinnerChazman59tnDined on 2/14/2014The 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!Special Features:
- Yum!IliketoeatDined on 2/14/2014Delicious Valentines meal. The steak was so tender you did not need a steak knife! App and dessert were creative and delicious! And the biscuits - oh my were they delicious!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Kitchen NotesCenterCitySonnyVIPDined on 2/13/2014Second 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.
- ExcellentSatisfiedDined on 2/9/2014My 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Biscuit-bar geniusFreqDinerVIPDined on 2/9/2014There'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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Festive downtown atmospherefamilymanagerDined on 2/8/2014Very much enjoyed Kitchen Notes. Good food, festive atmosphere, great place to meet group downtown or take out of town guest.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good Food. Not so much on serviceIlovefood3VIPDined on 2/7/2014The 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Left Lots to Be DesiredEricDined on 2/7/2014Very 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.
- Pretty restaurant but disorganizedTravelbearVIPDined on 2/7/2014Iced 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Best breakfast biscuit ever had...MartinVIPDined on 2/4/2014Wow. 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Birthday Brunchlsh41Dined on 2/2/2014They 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.
- A Solid Showing for a Sunday BrunchappleVIPDined on 2/2/2014Quite 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.Special Features:
- Great ambiance and food.litebulbfameDined on 2/1/2014Great ambiance and food. Love the concept and location.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Kitchen Notes hit the right note!SgtutvolsVIPDined on 2/1/2014Enjoyed 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Two words: Biscuit BuffetStacyVIPDined on 1/26/2014I've enjoyed breakfast/brunch twice at Kitchen Notes, and both visits were fantastic. The buffet has a huge variety of options from fruit and yogurt to eggs, breakfast potatoes, bacon and sausages to a cooked-to-order omelette, waffle and pancake station and A BISCUIT BUFFET! The buttermilk biscuits were delicious, and there were more creative offerings too, include maple blueberry sausage biscuits and a delicious assortment of jams from the Nashville Jam Co. I went one Sunday and promptly returned with four friends the following weekend to enjoy brunch... Oh! And a $5 bottomless mimosa. Incredible. And I don't have enough characters to say enough good things about the service and ambiance -- PHENOMENAL! You want to go to there!!!Special Features:
- Great Brunch!TNGnashvilleVIPDined on 1/26/2014The Brunch Buffet was really great! Bottomless mimosas were perfect!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Beautiful RestaurantOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 1/25/2014The place is absolutely beautiful and relaxing. We had the buffet thinking it would be just as good as ordering from the menu. Next time i will order it freshly made off the menu. The buffet was a little old and wasnt nearly as good as fresh from the kitchen. Overall, order from the menu and you will enjoy yourself.Special Features:
- Very disappointed1024NashvilleVIPDined on 1/24/2014The service was S-L-O-W and not very knowledgable about the menu. The biscuits came with a variety of jellies, which I loved. They were very tasty but were not hot at all. My Black Kale salad was dripping in dressing, bland and did not actually seem to contain kale. (I had requested dressing on the side.) The Chicken Noodle Soup was hot and excellent. My friend ordered the Chicken Club Sandwich. She said it was very good. The Potato salad on the side was made with fingerling potatoes. Pretty to look at, but very bland. Cold and bland is pretty much a synopsis of our entire experience. Hated to be disappointed, I had really looked forward to going.
- Very good and reasonably pricedDrRonDined on 1/19/2014$17 for a very good full breakfast buffet in an excellent hotel. All food was fresh and very appetizing. No extra charge for orange juice or coffee. Very attentive service. i was completely pleased with this experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Yes to food, no to parking!PucciniDined on 1/18/2014Third time at Kitchen Notes - and happy to report that the biscuits are improving, slightly. Trout dish was excellent, friends tried the chicken pot pie and cheeseburger, also good reviews. Service was good, nice warm greeting when we came in. This is a very good place to go pre-symphony because they can get you in and out quickly. But I would never park there again, even with validation! Took 45 minutes to get my car. Now if they can just work on the biscuits ....Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Less that SoSoNashvillefoodieDined on 1/17/2014Highlights: Beautiful restaurant Servers are nice Nice atmosphere Biscuit bar was great. Low points: Food is less than subpar Was brought wrong order even though there were only 10-15 diners total in restaurant on Friday night at 730. The chicken pot pie tasted like it had been frozen and dethawed. The mashed potatoes tasted like school cafeteria. Meatloaf was hard. Fried chicken was okay - can get better at Cracker Barrel. Don't waste the time or calories. Go for a drink and check out the beautiful hotel and music city center next door. (We didn't get dessert.)
- Go to Kitchen NotesAtomicgirlDined on 1/17/2014Super service, stylish surroundings, and something for everyone on the menu.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Not a dinner spotreturncustomerDined on 1/12/2014It'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....Special Features:
- This is not the place to goOpenTable Diner Since 2003Dined on 1/10/2014This is not the place to go for flashy or trendy cuisine, but if looking for well-executed modern southern (a restaurant category that is surprisingly thin in and near downtown Nashville), it gets the job done quite well. Service is uniformly outstanding. Wine list could use some work. I marked the ambiance good and the noise level quiet based on a typical weekend night, but it can get pretty loud with large convention groups in town, which tends to happen more during the week.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Try for meals other than dinnerbigredmd82Dined on 1/8/2014Dinner items we selected were only fair although the hot fried chicken did have decent heat there wasn't much other flavor compared to something like Hattie B's.
- Sleek new hotel. Shabby chicpatrick3Dined on 1/1/2014Sleek new hotel. Shabby chic restaurant decor with a fun interpretation of southern cuisine. No fancy plating, just well-balanced ingredients with a nod to local. Solid portions... Attentive and very friendly and eager server, though to be fair we were his only charge. Favorite dish by far was the crab cake. Solid Maryland blue with savory slaw, though every dish was flavorful and well cooked. Banana pudding satisfies. Would be interested to see the kitchen handle a crowd and if that affected QC. Very pleasant dining experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Home made vittles a la gourmetLocalVIPDined on 12/28/2013Country menu with exceptional preparation. Highly Recommend.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Saved usonelogDined on 12/25/2013For Christmas this year, we weren't able to cook in my tiny kitchen, and so many places were closed we didn't know what to do. Thankfully Kitchen Notes was ready and available to take a reservation and give us a great dinner! The prime rib was cooked perfectly and the portions on it were incredibly massive, and even the burger was just what my dad was hoping for. Thank you!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- The food was very good. SweetOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 12/15/2013The food was very good. Sweet potato tots were a hit. Great service. Nice atmosphere. Hotel location is a huge plus.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
