Great meal and setvice until we ordered the world whiskey flight. The rye advertised on the the flight was not available. We were not given a choice to select another flight. Instead, we received the three whiskeys, told another single malt was substituted. No options given . I believe the substitute was inferior to the advertised whiskey and was a second single malt provided for what was advertised as a world flight. Yes I'm a whiskey snob. However, this was a $50 flight that could not be provided as advertised. We should be informed of the substitute in advance and provided with an option to make another selection. To us, this was a significant blemish to an otherwise perfect evening.

We were in Nashville with friends to celebrate a family milestone. We made reservations for 4 through Open Table for 8:30pm. Out of courtesy, we called to say we would be five minutes late, to which they replied 'no problem!' We checked in with the hostess at 8:35pm and waited another 15 minutes before inquiring about our table. Initially we were told that our reservation was made for 3 people, which was quickly refuted by showing our email confirmation. Then they stated we were a no-show for our reservation and that our table had been given away, which was also not true. After seating us, they then approached the table and stated that another party with our same (VERY unusual) double last name was also booked at the same time, thus the confusion. Overall, the staff and manager were rude regarding the entire interaction, and despite bringing 4 pours of Cava to the table to make amends, left us with an awkward unsavory start to our meal and planned celebration. The food itself did nothing to improve the situation, it was overpriced and bland. We were really hoping for a nice night out, but unfortunately 404 Kitchen did not meet any of our expectations.

Menu was too limited. Food bland , over priced and boring. We are foodies and came in from
Boston, Atlanta and Houston are were ver unimpressed. Couldn’t find anything on the menu to jump out at us. Wasn’t bad but wouldn’t recommend or return to. Service good, ambience fair. Bar was neat looking. Two of us had duck and one halibut and we shared cauliflower , also scallop toast ( which was slimy and fishy tasting)

It was our first time to 404 Kitchen and it did not disappoint! Our server, Lacey, was more than outstanding! Actually more than outstanding! I started with the Chestnut Soup and it was by far the best soup I’ve ever had. Chef even topped it with homemade granola. It was like it was whipped with air, so light and fluffy! Yum! My husband had the Pork Belly app and he could have licked the plate. He also had the Halibut, also delicious! I chose the Frascatelli pasta. So fantastic. Serving size was perfect! Lacey suggested we try the homemade Root Beer ice cream and the Blondie. Let’s just say it was the perfect ending to our meal! A big thank you to Lacey for her service and advice on what we should do while I’m Nashville!

Our food was outstanding. We had the beef for two and it was melt in your mouth tender.

It was our 30th anniversary dinner and we let then know before we showed up. We arrive about 10 minutes early, so they had us wait in the bar. About 30 minutes later I went out to see if our table was ready and she said yes. She did not bother to find us in the bar. We were seated and given champaign to toast which was nice. Our waitress at first seemed attentive. We asked her if we could not be rushed and we ordered an appetizer to start. That took 20 minutes to show. We then ordered a salad, wine and our main course. Our salad showed up about 25 minutes later and we waited anther 30 minutes for our dinners to arrive. All this time, our waitress never told us what the delay was. As 8:15, we flagged the manager and asked for our bill. We had been there since 7pm and shoved in a corner and ignored. We were the second couple to get up and leave without dinner. Needless to say, my wife was crying. Thanks.

The food is delicious every time, however it does take quite a long time for the food to come out, we found ourselves waiting for each course much longer than normal. Each had about 15 min in between and we weren’t made aware it would work like that. Other than that it’s delicious

We are in the back private room that was so nice. It got pretty loud the more people that were seated there. It didn’t dampen our good time.

Food and service were both great. The only disappointing parts were 1) the valet service was slow and more expensive than most valet services in Nashville; and 2) the bar had given last call prior to us finishing dinner, which was disappointing.

Came for our son’s 28th birthday dinner and it was outstanding. We had the Tri-tip which was cooked perfectly and seasoned lightly with a great sauce. Flavors for all sides matched perfectly with the Tri-tip. Our waitresses were great and very attentive even though they had other tables as well. Bourbon selection was off the chain. Very much recommend for a special occasion.

We’ve been routinely disenchanted with our experiences at various restaurants (new and established) in Nashville over the past year. 404 renewed our faith in food, cocktails, service and ambiance well worth the money spent. We left in a delicious culinary coma.

Food was prepared well, but under seasoned! I was served a filet, very tender, no salt or pepper, so was very bland! Rabbit was not seasoned. Appetizers were good! Side dishes were good! Overall, a bit pricey for the dinner not to be delicious! We are from New Orleans, and are use to delicious food at a great price! Service was beyond excellent and our server was well informed on drinks and dishes! Very, very, loud!

Had an awful experience. Went To this place when it was across the street and small and the meal was great. Seems like them moving to the larger space has really hurt the quality of the food. Every dish we ordered was either bland, tasteless or undercooked. Very disappointed in the food. The service was great and the manager thankfully cooked some items.

Food was good, service was great. Our reservation was for outside seating and there was a 45 minute from our reservation time so we opted for inside. With plenty of open tables we where seated on top of another couple and find out later right next to the bathroom. So the placement for someone who was already being inconvenienced was a horrible decision wish we would have spoke up.
