Everything was excellent, Ashley was our server and she was superb! We had a large group and everything was spaced perfectly, refills were done in a timely manner, every question answered. We tried a variety of food and everything was excellent.

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.

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.

We were in town for Americana Fest. Our waitress, Ashley, was fantastic. She took time to describe drinks, food items, etc. Since we were from out of town and into food and drinks, we had a lot of questions.

Very thoughtful Happy Anniversary card, signed by staff, presented on the table. Service was excellent but cornbread was over cooked. Whole chicken good but not worth the effort to eat respectfully.

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.

I could tell from other reviews but decided to risk it...was close, within walking distance but... Sadly, was oh so disappointed. Like so many restaurants that seem to focus on style rather than food that actually tastes good. Please, chefs, taste your food...do you really want green beans that are so tough and tasteless that they are seriously inedible...or greasy cornbread burned around the edges..is that supposed to be cool? Zucchini was okay but the burrata, sadly bitter and tough. And I was so hungry and so disappointed. Cook these dishes and have people you trust tell you the truth. Maybe you can continue to do this for a while, but it will catch up with you. What should I have ordered that would have been edible? And it was way overpriced. We left hungry with emptier wallets. Nothing worse can be said of a restaurant.

I used to love 404 when it was across the street in the smaller, quaint environment. I’m still super disappointed about last night. The new space (formerly Watermark) is beautiful but lacks energy. The bar and restaurant were about 70% vacant. The bartender and our server both seemed to lack much charm or excitement to be working. Both seemed to have attitude and almost talk down to us when we asked questions about the menu. I felt the service was super slow which I can understand if they were slammed but they were not. The food was good but nothing to write home about. 404 wont make it. I can’t believe our group of 4 spent over $500 on our dinner and wine. The millennial/trendy staff needs to wake up and remember who the customer is.

We ate at 404 kitchen Friday at 530 pm there was no other guest in our area so it was very private. We had the garden salad which was incredible! I had the duck and my boyfriend had the trout both were delicious, we also shared the cornbread it was good but a little greasy for my taste. All in all I highly recommend 404 kitchen it was delicious!

The food was ok and the atmosphere was VERY loud. There was a large party in the private dining area - and we were seated right next to the door. I loved the cornbread, but my entree was just “meh”. My husband got the rabbit, and enjoyed that....but nothing we would come back for.

A wonderful dining experience! Service was exceptional, prompt but not hovering (thank you Sam!). Food and desserts were exceptional and well presented. Extensive wine selection as well as other adult beverages. The filet, trout and rabbit hopp'n john were ordered at our table and enjoyed! Highly recommend 404!

We ate on the outdoor roof deck which was perfect. Not noisy, tables spaced reasonably. Food was terrific. We were in from out of town for a conference and I actually ate there twice, once with a large group in a private room and once with a colleague. Both times the food and service were excellent.

Unexpected disappointment. So-So bottle of wine that was recommended. Significantly burned corn bread as a side dish ( that can't be a southern thing burning corn bread to char and dry) , Fried chicken for two huge portions but extremely over cooked- dry meat and hard to even cut and pretty bland. Chocolate dessert was excellent. Heard this was the best place in town. Totally off the mark. Enjoyed a fabulous dinner the night before across the street at Marsh House. I would not recommend.

Dropped in after checking out menu and reading OpenTable reviews. Nice laid back place, outdoor seating, inventive Southern-influenced American menu. Superb summer salad with homemade buratta, gnocchi with fresh tomatoes, basil and wild mushrooms. Insane selection of Tennessee and Kentucky whiskeys.

404 is consistently good. Food was a little slow getting to us but we weren’t in a rush. Cornbread and cauliflower appetizers got high marks from the table. Drinks were great. The steak was good-not-great and the duck was hard/dry.
