A Happy Mothers DayWe had a delightful brunch. The selections were great and varied. The noise and ambience probably would get even better ratings on a non-holiday. We'll be back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome food and fantastic serviceWhen I decided I didn't want to cook for Mother's Day, we made reservations at Sunset Grill for brunch and it exceeded our expectations. The service was impeccable and the food was fantastic. Our 9 year old son was welcomed and made to feel quite grown up as he reviewed his choices on the outstanding kid's menu. Our parents were equally delighted with their choices and the willingness (and patience) of the waiter to make changes to the items to suit their needs. Even though the place was quite busy, we were not rushed and the food came out perfect!
Sunset Grill is our "go to" place when we want to grab a bite to eat or have a nice glass of wine but now it will also be our go to place for special occasions.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience.I hadn't been to Sunset Grill in years and I don't know why. The whole experience was fantastic. We arrived 20 minutes early and were taken to our table right away which I thought was great. The waiter, Andrew, did a great job as well. At first he seemed a little distant but as the night went on I realized he was just letting us enjoy dinner. I never had to even look around once for him to bring water, bread etc. He was just always there at exactly the right time. Food was great as always. Took desert home and it was amazing later. I'll be back much sooner the next time.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food at Sunset consistentlyThe food at Sunset consistently impresses me. The menu options are varied and fresh. The wine list is extensive, and they tend to have good specials. The most impressive part is their desserts. Habanero-butterscotch bread pudding is the best!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to celebrateWas the perfect place to start our graduation celebration for our daughter from Vanderbilt.
Service was excellent and very friendly. Food was delicious and wine was fantastic.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExceeded Expectations.We moved our reservation time up and they accommodated. Had great service. Good wine list but also allowed your own wine with reasonable corkage fee. All thought food was great and plentiful.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated our 33rd weddingWe celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary and it was a wonderful experience. Food was excellent, service was good. Noise level was a little bit elevated because there were parties because of graduation of 2 local Universities, but this has not been the case when we have dined there before. Parking is tight if you don't valet. Randy Rayburn runs a good restaurant.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Large PortionsFor appetizers, we had the P.E.I. Mussels and the cheese, meat, olives and preserves. For entree, it was seared sea scallops and lamb shank. All was excellent, server was attentive and noise was moderate, which is increasingly hard to find in Nashville. We will certainly go back.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMLate Night DiningThis is one of the few good restaurants we've found that offers late nite dining.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst impression is the offerFirst impression is the offer of a variety of options for location of dining...fully enclosed, partially enclosed, or open air patio. Then one noticess the friendliness displayed by the staff and the plentiful choices of food and drink on the menu. The wine was good at a bargain price and the food was served promptly and courteously just as it was ordered. A wonderful wining and dining experience at a good value. We will visit more often as a result.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat in every wayI needed to book a restaurant for 11 of my colleagues with nothing but internet reviews to go by. I wanted a place that was not a chain restaurant and could be counted on to deliver a little out of the ordinary, great tasting food at reasonable prices and with good service. The sunset grill delivered. Everyone was very happy with the food and the service. Also, save room for dessert because they have some great ones.
I will definitly return.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of Nashville's bestSunset Grill is not what I'd call an elegant restaurant but the food is. Wife is a vegetarian and Sunset Grill has more vegetarian selections than any non-totally vegetarian restaurant I've visited. Everything was freshly prepared and eye appealing. I had salmon, cooked to perfection and well flavored. Prices are favorable. Had Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Ice Cream for dessert. Awesome!!! Wine selections are good and reasonably priced. Wife had Cosmo Cocktail for $6.00 with premium vodka. Can't beat that anywhere. If you're looking for creative menu in a casual setting, this is it. We'll be back.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat little restaurant.Very good food and awesome dessert! The only gripe I have is its a little loud. Maybe it was just that group or two but they were obnoxiously loud and I could barely hear my wife talking across the table. Once they left it was great.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMPRE-ballet dinnerGreat location, food is always delicious and consistent, great ambiance, service is very professional.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMHIGHLY RECOMMEND SUNSET GRILL!We were celebrating our daughter's 19th Birthday and used Open Table for the first time to make a reservation at Sunset Grill. We saw "Rock of Ages" at TPAC and headed over to the restaurant. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that they had read my special request for a table in the atrium area and immediately seated us accommodating all of our requests. We had the most amazing waiter who took the time to answer all of our questions and was very attentive and engaging. We were served quickly and the food was wonderful. We had heard that Sunset Grill was known for their desserts so we made sure to save room. We are glad we did. Our daughter truly enjoyed her birthday celebration at Sunset Grill and we are looking forward to going back!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMake plans to have dinner hereThe food is excellent.

Service was great and the pork chop was superior and huge.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery thing Randy RayburnEvery thing Randy Rayburn does is so good. It was a mob scene in there on Easter Sunday, but the lovely woman at the front desk had it under control with a smile on her face. Our waiter was efficient and pleasant. There were five of us, but we watched a team of about 20 young women appear -oh wow. On a miserably gloomy day, it was a fine experience!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOwner/Chef Randy Rayburn isOwner/Chef Randy Rayburn is a wonderful host.

Wonderful flavors and presentations.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a limited amount ofWe had a limited amount of time to spend dining as we were going to the Belcourt Theatre to see a film, so we ordered only from the First Course menu. One had a pizza, one a chicken quesadilla, and one the pork dish in phyllo dough with crawfish etouffe. All were quite tasty; the diner with the latter dish liked the pork and the etouffe but not the combination of the two.
The waiter was efficient and attentive without being intrusive. The ambience was nice. We will probably come back for full courses when we have more time to dine.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMwe dine at sunset grill awe dine at sunset grill a couple of times a year when we are in nashville and have been doing so for 20 years. the food is allways excellent as is everthing else.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe place was hopping.

The menu has many suggestions, and the choices we selected were well-prepared.2/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first experienceThis was my first experience at Sunset Grille where the food was just so so. I dine out regularly and this has always been a great place for a business lunch. When I made the reservation I requested patio seating, and our table was ready and it was perfect. Everyone did seem to enjoy their lunch, I just felt the chicken was very dry and lacked flavor. It was over a pureed cauliflower, which that gave me something to basically dip to moisten the chicken. I will be back because I am usually pleased.1/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
