    We "discovered" The Bound'ry twenty years ago on a trip to Nashville and make a point of dining there whenever we are in town. Menu with frequently (daily?) changing specials - both regular menu and specials are great. Good wine list. Service is always good, attentive and friendly, they are well-trained and motivated and it comes across. Multiple levels, different size rooms, some "knooks and crannies", sound levels are moderate to low, outside dining even in cool weather is acceptable with heaters and screening - just a fun environment - don't put any stock in other reviewers that have down graded the "dated" decor; they just didn't get it.

    I was very impressed. The food was well explained and well prepared. There were lots of different choices with different appeal for those who like to go outside of the norm. Our waitress was great! It was not too noisy but they did have music playing. We sat indoors but their patio looked like a place I would like to come back and hang out on. I will be returning to try some of the other items on the menu.

    Really enjoyed our meal and the server was great! The place seemed clean, however the noise level and décor left a lot to be desired. The mirrored wall has to go, as well as the cutesy lights to create color on the wall (at some tables they are way to bright and irritating to the eye. Bar area is really nice, dining area walls could use some change of texture/color.

    We came for dinner on a Friday, we were able to get reservations here unlike many other places. Outdoor seating was very nice and the service made dinner a very pleasant experience. The food was above average but not much. Crab cakes were my favorite part of dinner.

    We took our granddaughter, who MAY choose to go to culinary school someday, to one of our favorite restaurants for her birthday meal. It couldn't have been more perfect as she not only got to experience an unusual entree, the duck flatbread pizza, but also got to interact with several of the employees and observe the excellent teamwork which is so important to any restaurant's success! I love it when you can receive a great learning experience along with your meal!!! Thanks so much for the special attention...you made a lasting impression on a teenager.

  • Simply Amazing
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/10/2014
    What can i say, i was slightly hesitant with the exotic entree items like Antelope and Emu, didn't have either but i have heard EMU is delicious, but i Had a taste of my dad's pork chop and it was the best i ever had. My Hickory Smoked Swordfish was perfectly done even though the cut was probably 2 inches thick. The appetizer of Seared Tuna and Tuna Tar Tar was amazing, my mother's ceaser salad was also amazing. But there is a twist, it was made with shredded brussel sprouts instead of lettuce. And last but not least the flourless chocolate cake was so rich & smooth and was garnished with roasted apples and cherries and had a side of wine ice cream. I would say it was expensive but the $150 price tag went well with the taste. Enjoy!

    Made a reservation based on previous reviews, we were disappointed. At 8:30pm there was only 10-15 people in the restaurant, service was slow. Didn't have the first two bottles of wine that we ordered, didn't receive the sparkling water. Food was good but we wouldn't go back.

    My husband and I were celebrating his 30th birthday, the whole experience was much more than we could have hoped for! We were sat at a large circular booth with a firepit in the middle, it was so quiet and peaceful! Our server (unfortunately I don't rememeber her name) was AMAZING! She was full of great suggestions from the wine to the dessert as well as, peppy and full of life! The food was uncomparable, everything was presented beautifully! We cannot wait to go back, definately top 3 dining experiences!

    2nd time to Bound'ry and not as good as the first time. The best part was the service. Waitress did a fantastic job. Ordered the seared tuna which was all room temperature instead of warm outside and cool inside. Meat and cheese appetizer were pleasantly displayed with good selection of cheeses, meats where a little too dry. Pork belly with tomatoes were quite tasty. We were seated close to bathrooms and I would definitely not sit there again.

    It was restaurant week and there was antelope and emu on the menu, how could I not go? I went by myself and was shown excellent service by my waitress Karin. I went right when they opened at 5 on a Friday night and they were empty till about 6-6:30 when people started to come in. The ambiance was wonderful! I felt very homey there and very taken care of. The antelope carpaccio was delicious, tender and just melted in my mouth. The emu wellington was superb! Not a hint of gamey-ness and so extremely tender. The dessert was a salted chocolate frangelico tart with raspberry sorbet and toasted hazelnuts and it too was wonderful. The chef came out and introduced himself, asking about the food - and that theme of personal service makes it!

    The place is worthily of special occasions it has a romantic feel. I come from a family of cooks so The thing I look for in a restaurant is food of a quality I can't get or haven't had at home. This place hit the mark not only was the quality great but they offered selections that are not common in Nashville where we live by our southern comfort food.. Loved it would go again on another special occasion the prices do not allow for me to attend frequently.

    Went the other night and loved it! I was disappointed at first because when I had looked on the menu online I had seen Bourbon Belly Tacos but when we got to the restaurant we were informed they don't make those anymore. HOWEVER, our server recommended the Pork Belly appetizer and it was so good! Definitely made up for the lack of tacos. Got swordfish as my entree, very good. We also got the bananamisu for dessert-ORDER IT. So good and perfect to split. Overall, loved The Boundry!

    My group of 4 was looking forward to our dinner at Bound'ry. We tried the antelope dish and the lobster blt pizza. The food was good. We enjoyed it, but wouldnt consider it amazing. We sat outside as the weather was beautiful. There were a ridiculous amount of flys - like I dont think I've ever seen so many in my life which took away from our dining experience. Since we were all guests from out of town we didn't know if maybe thats normal and there is a fly problem in Nashville? Anyway, overall we thought the dining experience was good - we would recommend it, but we also probably would choose to try a different place next time.

    The Bound'ry used to be a great place for dinner and you could count on a good meal- unfortunately this is no longer the case. The number of menu items have been cut in half and the food itself was sub par. I ordered the seafood romesco this last weekend. For $24.00 you'll get 2 scallops and 3 small mussels- where is the rest of the seafood? I am sad to see this place slide so far downhill. It used to be a great place to go.

    We wanted to treat our out of town guests to a nice dinner during CMA fest, but waited too long to make reservations. Having had my share of happy hours at Boundary and many meals at sister restaurant, South Street...we were please to find ample reservations open Saturday night. Unfortunately, now... I know why. Although the service was top shelf, and the drinks were supreme, the food, I hate to say, were not in the same class. Extremely small portions overall, the steaks were not cooked to preference, the lobster stuffed fillet, provided hardly a fork-full of lobster, and the Au-ju-like sauce on the tortellini was pungently strong and overwhelming. The pork shops, on the other hand- looked like the best pick (at least from our table).

    This was our first time to dine at Bound'ry. It was a Sunday afternoon and and an odd time for dinner as it was more in between lunch and dinner.....so...we can't really comment on a lot as we were about the only people in the restaurant at the time. The duck flatbead app was great! I had the Plank Trout which was wonderful. My husband had antelope for the first time. It was a little "meaty" and lacked a bit of flavor; but still good. We will definitely go back to try other options on the menu!!

    This was our first visit to this upscale restaurant. We picked it for the outside dining options (we made the reservations in advance). The night of our reservations the weather was cool and the outdoor dining was not available. They put us next to the kitchen (plexiglass)where we could watch the chef and staff at work. The food and service was excellent. We will return...hopefully we can be seated outside as it has fire pits and is a great people-watching neighborhood.

    I have been to Bound'ry several times. This time was memorable for all the wrong reasons. My wife and I sat on the patio. There was a belligerently drunk group of guys who were apparently having a bachelor party. They repeatedly yelled out the open window from inside the restaurant to a group of girls outside on the patio only 10-15 feet away from us. Nothing was ever done to minimize this at all. It was apparent that everyone else on the patio was at least as annoyed as we were. Second, the waitress started out fine then completely disappeared. As always, the food was pretty good. I would return here for late night drinks or for drinks and appetizers at the bar. I would not return for a date night, at least not on the patio.

    My husband and I went out for a rare date night. We were glad to be trying a nice restaurant, but were sorely disappointed. We decided to sit outside, but our table was directly overlooking the valet stand. Like, 4 feet away. We learned a lot about how the valets work, though! We had the grouper taco appetizer but the fish was too salty and there wasn't enough sauce to cut it. For our entrees, my husband enjoyed his chicken okay enough but my Aubergine dish was awful. The eggplant had not been smoked as listed in the menu, and clearly had not been salted prior to cooking judging by its bitterness. It wasn't even evenly cut. The whole dish lacked seasoning. Luckily our desserts were fine, and they comped one of them. Service was inattentive

    The Bound'ry was a great restaurant with a nice modern flair and wonderfully different menu. I especially enjoyed the wild game options on the menu that included rabbit and antelope. The wine list was extensive, and the atmosphere was somewhat quiet with great mid-90's soft rock music. The only true downside of the restaurant was the service. Our waitress was ill informed and not helpful, and service was slow considering my fiancee and I were one of 3 tables present early in the evening. The food and available selection was great, and everything tasted and was presented very well. We ordered an appetizer and 2 entrees, all of which were delectable. I enjoyed the restaurant, and would probably return. Somewhat overpriced though.

    The appetizers were great: Korean short ribs and hanging meats and cheese platter. The wine pairings were lovely. Definitely try the eggplant and the lamb. The antelope is interesting, but you have be up for the texture of it--a little softer than most meats.

    We ordered the "hanging meat & cheese" appetizer which was really odd but good. The cheeses were delicious but nothing extraordinary. My husband ordered the cedar board trout which he liked very much. I had the pork chop which was cooked perfectly and wonderfully seasoned. This is the third time we've eaten here and we are always satisfied. The wonderful wine list is always extensive and thoughtful.

    The Bound'ry is a very unique place to dine. The decor is very eclectic and there's lots to look at. Outside there were tables around fire pits but we chose to eat inside. There are very nice booths for larger parties. You can see the kitchen from your table. The menu is unusual but all the dishes were very good. The really enjoyed the Beef Wrap appetizer. Entrees were good as well. We ordered 2 desserts but only one arrived so we were a bit disappointed. But the overall experience was very enjoyable.
