They try to be a hip place but it’s just a renovated factory building. Foods appear to be healthy but not at all. Very sweet and salty. Extremely cold by the windows. Very difficult to park. Sparkling water was a plus.

The service was attentive without seeming pushy or intrusive. We started with the carrots and the dates. They were fantastic with complex, but enjoyable, flavors and a variety of textures. The sauces were so good we asked for bread to soak them up. The octopus stew was rich and hearty. The octopus was almost buttery it was so tender and the little crispy bits of sweet potato were a wonderful addition to the salty stew. The ceviche was served last and the tangy curry cleaned the palate. Overall the presentation was top notch along with the food and service. The price seemed reasonable but the quality of the experience makes the price a deal.

Butcher & Bee was an amazing dining experience! Everything from the decor, food and wait staff was superb. The flavor combinations were spot on, with a great mix of vegetarian offerings. It was a superb experience!

After several disappointing meals at very highly rated Nashville hot spots I simply googled “where to eat Nashville”. Butcher and Bee delivered a solid food performance; just pretentious enough to appeal to the hipster crowd but still honest to execution. Service was polite, informed, and comfortable. Recommend completely!

Restaurant was closed but reservation wasn’t cancelled or updated. Got to the restaurant to find everything closed and appeared to have been closed all night. We understood they had no power and couldn’t be open but it would have been nice to have a heads up before we got there.

This was the first time to Butcher & Bee. Food was very good, creative, and deliciously unusual. It seems as if their menu changes quickly so do not necessarily rely on
their website menu as what will be available the day you go.

The place is great so is the food, but it's not sexy, no real atmosphere,
We were eating at the open kitchen bar, no interaction with the people working on the other side, too up tide

We sat at the "chefs counter" and it was awesome seeing the food being prepared. Our cocktails were perfect. The meal was a top 5 meal I've ever had in my life!! Get the steak, it's amazing. 10/10 would recommend to anybody. We are big foodies and we walked out very very impressed!

Excellent service and ambiance for an exceptional unique dining experience! Chef inspired cuisine for vegetarian as well as American satiation diets. Small plates offer the ultimate group experience in addition to the wide variety of bar services. Enjoy a warm, yet romantic, experience with your significant other. Affordable cuisine with a great vibe! Highly recommend! View the menu prior to booking...if not, the waitperson is more than happy to oblige for translation. Enjoy!

We landed in Nashville for work and pleasure and ended up at Butcher & Bee for brunch based on recommendations from friends. We were not disappointed! The whipped feta is to die for and the avocado crispy rice is one of my favorite dishes of all time. Our server told us that dinner was even better, so we can't wait to get back to Nashville again!

Ordered five items plus two drinks (my husband and I) and I could have had the meal all over again. I loved everything we ate. And our server was ever so helpful at recommending amazing dishes and telling us to get the Whipped Feta with no add ins. Great call, sir. We sat at the bar and a chef handed us a small bite of something the sous chef was working on. It was delicious. Seriously. Everything had bold flavors - fresh ingredients used. Would SO recommend to anyone traveling to Nashville.

I had the worst experience here. The food was terrible. Over seasoned and just weird. I had to send my meal back, got something else, clearly didn’t eat that, and ended up paying $80 for my lunch. In the middle of our meal the music started blasting as if we were in a club. For a couple minutes the lights turned off all together. When my daughters eggs got cold I asked the waiter to warm up her food, he said it was illegal and he couldn’t. Illegal to warm up my child’s eggs??? A young boy came to our table soliciting the whole restaurant asking for money, as well as the parking lot. Another child kept coming to our table asking my daughter to play with her the entire meal. What was this?? This was not at all the experience I was expecting nor ever expected to have in my lifetime. Sorry excuse for a restaurant.
