- Good but not great.OpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 10/28/2014Have been here before and always enjoyed it. This time it was for a special occasion, and the service and food fell short for a number of reasons. 1) Server lingered too long at table. His awkward pragmatics made us a bit uncomfortable. 2) The honoree's dinner, capellini with grilled chicken and tomotoes, looked like someone had dumped an entire carton of small yellow tomotoes into the dish. The tomatoes were not cut or arranged nicely or artfully. Looked really amateurish. 3) nice touch - comped a dessert 4) I ordered the scallops. For $32, there were 4 scallops served as dinner. Portion should've been more generous.Special Features:
- Always in good formAppreciativeDinerDined on 10/27/2014Sunset Grill is rock solid. Its menu is diverse and up-to-date, and the service always is professional. I know I'll always have a good meal at Sunset Grill.Special Features:
- Good food, great servicedatenightDined on 10/25/2014My wife and I have been long-time fans of Sunset Grill. It used to be a favorite "date night" spot, especially for a nightcap after a show or event. We recently returned after not having been in several years. We were early diners this evening, so it was a very quiet setting, although I suspect it picks up quite a bit when the later crowd arrives. Plenty of patio space, and a superb wine list. An excellent menu as well. Sunset has recently gone to the "locavore" style, which is awesome. I had the scallops, and my wife the vegan meal. She LOVED hers. Mine was OK. However, the service was impeccable. You would be hard-pressed to find more attentive servers and hosts for a meal. Very good evening!Special Features:
- Visiting from TexasOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 10/24/2014We visited Sunset Grille on a recommendation from a friend that lives in Tennessee. Our reservation was at 9:00 pm and there was not much of a crowd when we arrived. The decor is quite outdated but we sat on the patio so we didn't have to constantly look at it. The service was outstanding! The hot chicken appetizer was delicious and we shared the shrimp ravioli. Overall it was a great experienceSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great ServiceMamaLisaDined on 10/18/2014Our server Maurna was wonderful! We were there for our 25th anniversary and she made us feel special. We were not overly impressed with the menu, but enjoyed our choices. The creme brulee was divine!Special Features:
- Very Good & Very BadRunnergirlVIPDined on 10/13/2014We've been coming to Sunset Grill for many years and have never been disappointed -- until now. The occasion was our son's birthday - the pumpkin muffin starter, calamari, kale salad and pasta with shrimp were all wonderful. Alas, my husband and I both ordered the amberjack special, which turned out to be an epic fail at $30 each - the description sounded exotic and our waiter assured us it was an awesome choice - he couldn't have been more wrong. The fish was a small flavorless overcooked hunk with roasted root veggies that tasted like cardboard rocks. On the plus side, they brought a complimentary birthday dessert, which was a very nice touch. We'll be back, but only for the basics. The pricey specials are just too risky.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always GoodMaplekiwiDined on 10/9/2014This is our go to restaurant whenever people are in town. It never disappoints. Two days later they are still talking about the goo door pasta!Special Features:
- Always greatOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 10/2/2014I always enjoy Sunset Grill. I arrived early for a dinner date on a very quiet night and the staff was so accommodating, letting me wait with a quiet glass of wine until my companion arrived. The specials menu was inventive and delicious. It is so nice to be able to find local offerings on so many different levels. They include a list of all the local vendors they use, I appreciate that.Special Features:
- Family favoriteJoshDined on 9/30/2014Sunset Grill is our "go to place". The food is always great. From out of town guests to in-town friends we love taking them to dinner here.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Still a FavPleasedrpalatesDined on 9/20/2014We randomly dine at Sunset and always leave satisfied, wondering why we waited so long to return!?! Since it was an early dinner, we had an appetizer (cheese nachos...very unique), main entrees (catfish and salmon), and a dessert trio; all were excellently prepared and presented!Special Features:
- Go for the Food!TrentDined on 9/13/2014There were some large (and loud!) parties there, which was a bit annoying. However, our waiter did a fine job and the food was outstanding! (I had perfectly cooked scallops with greens, while my wife had salmon). We will return.Special Features:
- Perfectly fine. No more, no less.sparkyDined on 9/13/2014We were a large party of 13 during Vanderbilt's Parents' Weekend. Sunset Grill was very accommodating in changing our reservations several times, each time an increase of 1 or 2. The food was good - certain items particularly stood out (Smoked Pork Beggars Purse!); others were simply 'fine' (fried catfish). Waiter was pleasant and accommodating, but clearly the crowds were more than the wait staff or kitchen staff could keep pace with.
- Old friend!MagiVIPDined on 9/12/2014I've been going to Sunset for 25 years, yet have lapsed lately. Big mistake. It was great!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always wonderfulOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 9/11/2014Have been going to Sunset for many years and have always had a great dining experience. Food is outstanding, great wine list and the service impeccable. Kudos to Randy for being one of the few restauranteurs to keeping things fresh and new. Hope to keep dining there for many years to come.Special Features:
- Sunset always pleasesNickVIPDined on 9/9/2014My wife and I came to Sunset often while we were dating and now like to come as a place to celebrate special occasions. The menu is always good and the specials change things up on a daily basis. There is not a better dessert menu in town. Try the bread pudding.Special Features:
- Great DiningToniandGregDined on 9/6/2014Wonderful food and atmosphere. We especially liked the haberno bread pudding. A big surprise finish to meal. Great service and on a nice night, opening the big picture windows made it almost like being outdoors.Special Features:
- Nice selection of food and drinksSunsetVIPDined on 9/6/2014Good for both meaties and vegies and not just good selections, good taste and qualitySpecial Features:
- Great ChoiceOpenTable Diner Since 2012VIPDined on 8/30/2014One can always count on a great dining experience at Sunset Grill. In spite of all the new restaurant opportunities in Nashville, Sunset rates just as strongly in its culinary creativity, service, location. Valet parking in this Hillsboro Village location continues to make this a convenient neighborhood spot. I'm sorry they have closed for lunch, but will be back for dinner soon.Special Features:
- Just a solid all around spotZPowersDined on 8/22/2014Sunset Grill is just one of those solid spots that never fails. It's our go to for when we can't think of another place. And it is always good.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Travel favoriteFoodieKCMODined on 8/21/2014We've been dining at Sunset for about ten years anytime we come through Nashville. It has remained consistently good all these years, great food and good wine selection, friendly wait staff and pleasant surroundings (we love the glass terrace, comfortable while giving the impression you are outside even in the summer heat). This is our favorite way to end our vacation and it never disappoints.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Sunset Grill honors Restaurant WeekWhaleofadinerDined on 8/21/2014We went to Sunset on a Thursday evening during Nashville Originals Restaurant Week. Sunset Grill did it up right with a 2 course meal (appetizer, regular entrée) for $20.14 and lots of wine special. The BLT (Trout!) was outstanding and lots of food.Special Features:
- Probably???angikins813Dined on 8/19/2014Me: What is your house red wine? Waitress: It's probably Cabernet. Me: Well is it Cabernet? Because, I don't want a Merlot. Waitress: It's probably Cabernet. Me: Fine, I'll have that. Me: Are the greens made with vinegar? That's the only way i like them. Waitress: They probably are. Me: Fine, I'll have the Pork Chop with Greens. NOPE, they weren't made with vinegar or anything tasty for that matter. They were bitter and yucky. I don't expect to be back here. The other food we had was fine but a waitress left a bad taste in my mouth.Special Features:
- Great menu2foodiesDined on 8/19/2014Great choices on their menu. Something for everyone. Cajun shrimp and grits was presented beautifully and tasted great!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Monday night birthdayAppreciativeDinerDined on 8/18/2014Monday nights in nice restaurants can be an off night for both the kitchen and dining room staffs. That's not so at the Sunset Grill. I brought two out-of-towners (open with a birthday) and their 10-year-old grandson for dinner on Monday night. Everything was excellent. Our server catered to our needs without being fawning, was conscious of the child at the table and was great in conversation. All of that is on top of excellent food. We had five entrees and three desserts, and everyone was happy as could be.Special Features:
- Consistently ExvellentRMacOSDined on 8/18/2014The best food and service in Nashville. For every day or special occasions, Sunset can't be beat.Special Features:

- Stands the Test of TimeJoshDined on 8/3/2014Time and again, the food and service are at an outstanding level. The unique dishes made from locally provided farm produce taste delicious and are presented very well. Sunset Grill is a regular go to dining destination that doesn't get boring. It's always a hit with our out of town friends and colleagues.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent as usualevctnDined on 8/1/2014Always a great time at Sunset! Food great, waitress excellent, and friends were priceless. Thought of nowhere else but Sunset.Special Features:

- Still good after all these yearsDR11Dined on 7/27/2014Had a private dinner for a relative's birthday. Everything was handled perfectly from the food to the service to the atmosphere to the cake! All our guests commented how they'd forgotten how good Sunset Grill was and will return again!Special Features:
- Oldie But Goodyjsg123Dined on 7/26/2014This is a restaurant that has been here a long time because the food is good, the service is good, the covered porch up front is such a good place to eat, and you can carry on a conversation with the people you are dining with because it is not so loud.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 7/25/2014Rated the food as three stars because I had to choose an option. Although we left before server arrived at table (after sitting for 5 minutes) the food was ok the last time we dined.
- Love Sunset Grill!LauraandRodneyDined on 7/21/2014I took my BF for his birthday on a Monday during Happy Hour. They were already out of the Begger's Purse, but we ordered Chicken Nachos, pepperoni pizza, and crab cake. The pizza was great as usual, crab cake small but lovely (I'm not a big tarter sauce fan, and would have that left off next time). The cranberry chocolate cheese cake was divine!Special Features:
- Special OccasionFlippinfoolDined on 7/16/2014Excellent food and service. A little pricey for everyday dining but great for special occasions.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent as alwaysMikeEatsOutDined on 7/9/2014I've eaten at Sunset Grill since the early 1990s and the food is consistently very good, the staff and service excellent, and the value is good, too.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A favorite find.Southerndiner57Dined on 7/6/2014What to say? Yet another wonderful experience. We have always experienced the best of service at Sunset. There is no doubt in my mind that this is the most civilized happy hour in town. Visit on a Sunday or Monday for the half off pizzas (try the voodoo) and the half off wine list. The go later in the week and order from the menu. From the wonderful greeting at the door to the delicious creative dishes, you will love it. You will come back. I know we will.Special Features:
- cupcakeDined on 7/5/2014The restaurant called me and left a voice mail 4 hours prior to our reserved dining time to say that "due to the holiday, we will be closing at 9:00 pm ... please call us to make different arrangements" .... I'm curious as to HOW the restaurant didn't know they would be closing early several days prior to that, when I made the reservation for 10:00 pm ... A very close friend of mine recommended the Sunset Grille ... I will not refer others.
