Sardinia Enoteca Ristorante reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Our party of 10 celebrated

    Dined on 1/2/2014
    Our party of 10 celebrated a birthday, and several of the people had not been to Sardinia Enoteca before. Everyone loved their dishes, our server was wonderfully attentive and took time to explain any question. It was a great experience all around and much enjoyed by our group.

    Beautiful spot. Appetizers are awesome I had the crostini with prosciutto and pesto cream a must to order. The pasta we ordered was cooked perfectly. I had the grilled octopus and it was fan-ta-stic!!! Let me tell you about dessert...Millefoglie...mamma mia!!!

  • New Years Eve
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 12/31/2013
    We had heard and read great things about Sardinia and decided to try it for New years Eve. I know that is a very busy time so we have decide we will give it another try. Our sever had no clue about the menu and the food clearly had been sitting as my lasagna was burnt on the bottom. The bar was great. We talked to several regular patrons who told us this place is usually much better. Again New years Eve probably not the best test will give it one more shot.

    Had another wonderful dinner at Sardinia. New Year's Eve, so atmosphere was festive and the entire staff made the night wonderful. Food was excellent, as it always is. Had guest from out-of-town with us, and this will be a place we return with them on their next visit. Wonderful, wonderful evening.

    The restaurant was very festive and decorated for New Year's Eve. It was our 20th anniversary, so we took our 4 daughters from ages 9-12 to help us celebrate. Sardinia's atmosphere and food were perfect for the occasion!

  • Christmas Eve new tradition
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 12/24/2013
    One of the few upscale restaurants open on Christmas Eve. My children (adult) and I enjoyed a fabulous bottle of wine and a spectacular dinner. Our surroundings were festive yet we had our own space for our family conversation. Just may be a new tradition. What a great menu too. Thank you for a beautiful Christmas Eve experience.Every one was celebratory even though away from their own families. It was a hard night as we were missing one person who is in Afghanistan. We wondered how to spend the first Christmas without him. Your restaurant was an excellent choice.

  • If you're expecting upscale

    Dined on 12/24/2013
    If you're expecting upscale dining this is not the place for you. We were highly disappointed in the service here. The wait staff was my knowledgable on the food or wine. When we asked about the tasting menu our waiter didn't really know what was going on with that. If it isn't available then take it off your website. The food was ok. Being that we went on Christmas Eve we expected much better service, especially if we are going to be charged for such. Probably will never go back again.

    Our first time at Sardinia and it was a very good experience. We had the branzino and gnocchi and each was fantastic. Our server, Brad, was equally competent. We also tried a few of the in-house mozzarella and were impressed. Overall, a great experience.

    Third time in a row we've dined here where our entrees had zero, none, nada seasoning. We had to add far too much table salt just to make things palatable. Did they lose the salt & pepper? What's happening?? Its been one of our favorites for exceptionally tasty food and while things haven't gone completely south there's definitely something odd happening. I should note that I had the same dish this time (boneless chicken w/ artichokes) as last and both times were as bland as could be. This time around it was cooked to the point of being rubber-tough. My wife's veal medallions were shoe-leather tough and bathed in a sauce that was WAY too sweet, and missing salt/other seasoning. Sigh... We remain hopeful things turn around.

    Dined on 12/24/2013
    Four of us got 2 land and 2 sea of the tasting menus, which come with a few bites of each dish & small wine pourings for each. Every single little plate was a treat of tastes & textures & variety. The one thing that didn't sound appetizing to me (octopus carpaccio) turned out to be my favorite dish- unbelievably delicate and sweet- & the presentations, even w/ tiny plates, were lovely, the service was attentive, but not obtrusive (& he had an adorable smile), & we had a great time sampling lots of wonderful dishes. It's also a very reasonable price compared to a regular dinner if you normally order appetizers, etc., & a nice bottle of wine. If you like trying new dishes, this is the way to go,& Sardinia Enoteca did it perfectly. 5 stars!

  • Awful, tasteless food
    eatoutoftenVIP
    Dined on 12/21/2013
    If this restaurant wants to stay in business and compete with all the other GREAT Nashville restaurants, it's going to have to step it up several notches. Overall, the food was TOTALLY WITHOUT FLAVOR and cheaply prepared. We could have gotten a better meal at Olive Garden! Carrot soup had NO FLAVOR! Beet salad was tasteless and lack-luster compared to all the other FABULOUS beet salads offered by other Nashville restaurants. Trout was AWFUL, barely edible - no flavor and watery. Veal had little flavor and the vegetables served with it, well, we could have eaten better at Shoney's. They couldn't even get the beet side done well - too soggy, rubbery. Service was good. But, the FOOD IS TERRIBLE, and VERY EXPENSIVE. We WON"T RETURN

  • 3rd time is the charm
    MonroeHouse
    Dined on 12/18/2013
    This is the 3rd time to dine and I think that they finally have it right. The menu has been scaled down from the tome that it was originally. A new divider wall has been tastefully added to help reduce the din of the large room. Food was good especially the mozzarellas however we had to send back our coffees because the were not warm.

    As usual everything was spot on, from food to drink to service. We've enjoyed Sardinia since it opened & plan to return often. The only negative this time around was our entrees were under seasoned. Probably just an oversight in the very busy (Friday night) kitchen.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIP
    Dined on 12/7/2013
    Honestly, I think the best way to approach Sardinia is with their various antipasto plates and wine. After that, I am usually full by dinner and hardly have room to eat. Everything is prepared well, but it's their housemade formaggio and excellent charcuterie and vegetable antipasti that really send me. Sometimes it can be a bit loud in the dining room if there are big groups. Reservations necessary, valet parking, across from Vanderbilt at Centennial Park.

    Dined on 12/7/2013
    We had an early dinner thus it was very quiet. The ambiance and decor is sleek and pleasing. Our server was very good and knowledgeable about the food and wine. The meals however were just average, nothing notable or outstanding about the quality, taste or presentation of the veal and pork (dry and not tasty). In our opinion over priced for what we received. Our server was pleasant and "spot on" in his comments on wine recommendations. The kitchen however let us and Sardinia down. At this time we would not recommend or return to Sardinia Enoteca. Over priced for what is received. Not related to the meal: valet parking service was very slow in retrieving our car on a slow evening.

    8:30 reservation on Friday night for my wife and I Server- un-knowledgeable of the menu. There is nothing worse than dining at a new spot and asking about the menu options and the server says "it's good" or worse " I haven't tried it yet" or even " a lot of people order it. That's all nice but what about the food? Taste, texture, pairing? Delivery- food runner auctioned off the food. "ok who's having the..." No one came to see if our dining experience was a pleasure. Ive had better service at Cheesecake Factory The food was good but not quite the culinary experience I expected. Had a chain food quality (Amerigo) The ambiance was the best part of the experience. All in all I'd go back for a special occasion Average at best.

    My wife and I went to Sardinia for our anniversary and each got something from the tasting menu. It was a LOT of food - we certainly left full. Each dish was unique and well prepared. It was a wonderful way to sample a large portion of the offerings from the restaurant. Each course came paired with a wine as well - and the pours were pretty generous.

    Nashville has a lot of great dining choices for Italian food, but you can't go wrong with SER. Our appetizer was enough for a party of four but the two of us managed somehow. :) Of special note was the outstanding service - in addition to our excellent waiter, the bus staff was right on top of things and not one but two managers stopped by briefly to check in. My pasta was cooked to perfection and my wife was thoroughly satisfied with her paella. Save room for dessert. We split an alfagato - if you've never had espresso and gelato before, try it!

    Dined on 11/3/2013
    When you enter Sardinia the first thing you note is how spacious it is. The place exudes warmth and chic romance. The bar is in the forefront but away from the dining area so even when the bar is packed you will be dining in relative peace. Our party of 8 had a great round table; so perfect for chatting. Food was good albeit I prefer a different style of lamb ragout. All diners in my group enjoyed their meal. Service top-notch.

  • Need to step up their game

    Dined on 11/2/2013
    We arrived on time and were seated right away. We asked about the tasting menu - it took a few minutes to find one, and there were a number of substitutions - pretty big miss. After a somewhat rocky start, the meal went fairly smoothly - we decided on the tasting menus and I will say that the food was very good. I have enjoyed tasting menus at a number of big restaurants, the reason I spend the money is to sample a wider variety of the restaurants offerings, and to LEARN about the food. Dishes like these should be presented, with some information about ingredients and preparation. Our server was OK generally, but seemed stumped a few times. Overall good, but they need to bring their A game - there are too many other local options.

    Having eaten at the Miami restaurant, several times, this was a huge disappointment. The noise level was high, tables too close so you could not really have a conversation and easily you could become a part of the conversation at the table on either side of us. The waiter was basically a no-show and the service has to be one of the lowest we have experienced anywhere. The wine that was recommended by a supervisor was excellent and the food was only average. There are too many excellent restaurants choices in Nashville and this is certainly not one of them.

    Sardinia was an enjoyable meal, if not overly Sardinian in experience. While many of the dishes are inspired by Sarda, the olives and olive oil, for example, are Sicilian, the wines from all over Italy and not robustly representing Sardinia, etc. Yet while the carasau (wafer thin flatbreads) are imported from Sardinia (and thus authentic), the ability to make the same thing freshly on site exists and would have been more flavorful. All of the sampled food was certainly good (not outstanding, but solid), and the service was very good and personable. Not bad, but had hoped for a bit more...
