    Rumours has the most sophisticated bar and best bartender in Nashville, hands down. Although the menu is not extensive, all of the food is perfectly prepared, fresh, interesting, and delicious. The service couldn't be more personal. You feel like you dropped in on friends for a drink and a meal. Friends who pamper you, but leave you plenty of space to attend to your dinner/drink companions. I will keep coming back.

    Me and my friends love Rumours and enjoy the great ambiance and tolerable noise level as we catch up over glasses of wine at the end of a long day.

    We booked it for a monthly dinner group. Wine list was great (you guessed that huh) and the food would be considered heavy tapas...what was great. Service was outstanding! After dinner a few of us camped out t the bar and discovered that the bartender knew how to make our favorite drink (Veaux Carre).

    This wine bar was recommended by some local friends in the area. The menu was quite limiting and the wine mediocre at best. Our server was not very warm and friendly and did not even check us out when it came time for us to leave. It was moderately busy, but tables still vacant, however, the service was slow. The food was highly recommended and the server gave us her opinion as well, but once taking a few bites of the meal, it did not live up to the accolades. For $80, I have had far better wine and meals than what was had here. I've traveled all over the world and have never found a wine bar with such poor tasting and quality of wine.

    The quality of the food is great as always--very gourmet, simple--but the portion size is lacking what it used to be. Don't come for dinner if you're truly hungry. The drinks are great and I recommend coming between 5-7 as that is happy hour--really a very convenient happy hour. Service was very good. Helpful but not in your face.

    This was a fun place to dine with nice ambiance. The patio was nice except for the exhaust fan from the kitchen discharged out of the wall and down onto the patio. It should be turned to the street, or better yet, since it is on the corner they should relocate it to the street side. On top of the food smells permeating the patio area it added a lot of unneeded noise. Food I had was very tasty but portions were small.

    My husband and I have a 5 month old so we don't get to go out much. We decided to try Rumors. I used to really enjoy it's old location. This was just ok. There wasn't very many people in there and the service people kept making mistakes as if they where overwhelmed. The drinks where good but the food was just ok. I felt like the set up was more for a business meeting than a romantic night out. I wouldn't go back here the experience wasn't worth the $80 we spent. My husband said well it is a wine bar I guess we can't exspect much from the food. But my feeling is why not make the food great to go with the great wine.
