Th waitstaff (who were working their butts off) and the GM were amazing. The food was unbelievable. Best trout I’ve ever had. Cocktails were superb. After a bit of a wait for things to get rolling (kitchen mishap, it happens) the GM came over to check in, we had great conversation and he and the waitstaff made sure everything was beyond wonderful. We’ll definitely be back.

Please save yourself the time and the money. The atmosphere in this restaurant is not worth the price tag that is attached. The food was mediocre at best. The menu is tiny. Maybe grab a drink before a night out but that’s it. Nothing special at all. Nashville is full of so many amazing places do not waste your money here.

Steak isnt a cut worth 41$.

Corn bread is the worst I ever had and tasted like burnt cheeseits.

Chicken wings are the most expensive I have ever had.

The salad had no flavor.

Over priced. Left hungry.

I havent had McDonald’s in along time but would have preferred eating mcds over this food anyday.

My friend got a drink that wasn’t very good and she didn’t drink it but nothing was done about it. Overall the cocktails weren’t great. I think they need to change the cocktail menu.

I have been going to 404 Kitchen for many years, going back to their small space across the street from their current location. It was a great place for a date night or special evening: great food, good service, and a pleasant atmosphere. This was our first visit back since the pandemic. While I’m glad that the restaurant survived, it has changed its vibe and appears to be targeting the tourist crowd. The food was still fantastic: cavatelli with bolognese sauce, steak au poivre, mahi-mahi. The service was so-so but I wonder if the ongoing worker shortage contributed to that. At this price point ($80-100 per person with drinks and wine), the service needs to be better. But the atmosphere was most disappointing. Loud electronica music blared from speakers, which made conversation very difficult. The bar downstairs was quieter than the restaurant. Felt like we were in a nightclub. Clientele in denim shorts and casual attire. Again, it seems like 404 is trying to attract the tourists who are riding the pedal taverns and party buses. Nothing wrong with that, but I’ll look elsewhere for a nice night out.
