    The food was really good. The service not to much!! Should've taken the first when the waitress stood behind me and my husband to take our food (we were sitting at a table). Not only did we ask once, but asked 3 times, one of which consisted of a person who appeared to be management (she was dressed in a gray suit). All in all it took 15 minutes to get a soda refill and then had the nerve to only bring out a short glass (the original serving was a tall glass). By this time, I was getting the feeling they were trying to rush us out the door. I'm still not sure why our waitress couldn't handle her tables, since there was a separate staff to deliver food. The management has truly missed the boat on the staff needed for this establishment.

    The fried chicken is Nashville style, better than Mom used to make, and can be prepared "Nashville hot" upon request. Watch out, it's serious heat. Our table had a variety of fish and chicken dishes and all were very pleased with the entrees and sides. "Smart casual" is how they describe the dress. Very unpretentious but nice enough to take clients (which is what I did on my second visit).

    Set in the middle of the new convention/Hall of Fame area, this restaurant inside of the Omni hotel is lovely. The decor is beautiful and the waitstaff friendly, even if they are a little slow. The Sunday brunch was delicious, good standby's were available (eggs, bacon, breads, etc), as well as more adventurous foods like salads, meats, cofffecakes. Everything was very delicious. I would come back in a heartbeat. Fun place to eat with a group.

    Our 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.

    I 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.

    First, 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.

    I 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!

    First 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.

    The 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!

    Second 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.

    There'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.

    The 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.

    Very 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.

    They 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.

    I'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!!!

    The 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.

    Third 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 ....

    Highlights: 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.)

    This 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.
