We haven’t eaten here in about a year, but I wasn’t impressed with the menu or food as I have been in years past. I love the atmosphere and location.
We love everything about this place. From the beautiful setting (inside the stunnung Hermitage Hotel, best building in Nashville), perfect service, and delicious food. It was our 10 year anniversary and from the free Valet parking, to after dinner drinks in the Oak Bar, the night couldn't have been more romantic.
Disappointed in what was once a Nashville bellwether for fine dining. In a nearly empty restaurant they sat us right next to another table, but our server was good. The food was just ok, not even very good (except the signature Vidalia Onion soup, good as ever). For $250 with tip - two appetizers, two entrees, two drinks and a shared dessert - there are many other restaurants in town that offer better food at a better price.
This is a good place for a working lunch. Being able to make a reservation is great. The ability to carry on a conversation is unique among most downtown eateries. The menu prices are on the high side of reasonable. However, this place could be so much more. The food is somewhat average for such a nice establishment with rich history. If the quality of the food was on par with the ambiance and exclusiveness of this place, it wouldn't be so quiet and relatively empty at lunch.
Good friendly service and excellent food
Great food and great service. Food was excellent, entire family enjoyed it!
This what the first time eating at the restaurant for both of us. We were celebrating a birthday. Unfortunately, we had a new server who wasn't being watched by the experienced servers. We didn't get plates with our starter and waited for a very long time to get our beverages. The server didn't listen to one of the orders and brought the food out without the change. I think the server will be good, but needed guidance. It was the little things that became big things. I will eat there again because we really thought it had a nice ambiance and our food was good.
We come here from time to time for weekend breakfast/brunch...we like how quiet & "tucked away it" is from a lot of the regular, crazy-busy weekend brunch crowd and we can easily valet which makes for a relatively quick & easy in/out. The last few times we've been here though we haven't been nearly as satisfied with the quality of our food...I think there's been some changes in the kitchen and overall we haven't been all that impressed. Even the coffee seems to be getting worse! I had the "avocado toast" which seemed like a relatively new addition to the menu and it was pretty sad.
We decided to eat at the restaurant in our hotel because of the rainy weather. The dinner was good but I was hoping for more selections. Earlier in the week, we had breakfast in the Capitol Grille and we thought that the selection then was great and the value even better. Like the service throughout The Hermitage Hotel, service was outstanding.
We chose the Capitol Grill to celebrate our birthdays. It was both my husbands and my birthday 2/24 & 2/25. Our meal was over the top excellent! My husband ordered the Filet and I had the scallops. My husband requested a nonsugar version of the Brussels sprouts for his side as he is on a special diet and the chef made his Brussels sprouts just as we had requested. The wine menu should have something for any wine conesour. We were blown away that our waiter, Thomas gave each of us us some beautiful macaroons and fruit for our birthdays as we were leaving. We will definitely recommend and be back to the Capitol Grille!
Food and service was excellent!
We ate breakfast there. It was lovely! Food was delicious!
My wife said coming there made her feel like a "princess". Very cool vibe, beautiful hotel architecture (built in 1910) plus good food. Our wait staff Lori was terrific. Interesting food options. They had the usual type choices for a high end restaurant but also hen, bison & venison. The grits were outstanding. And be sure to check out the hotel lobby upstairs snd the men's room as it is done in a 30's art deco style (and ladies can go in to see it - two were coming out as I was walking in ☺ ).
Our waitress was very accommodating to us and our three children. Would definitely return!
Atmosphere is great and food is delicious. Service was top notch and the portions are plentiful.
Wonderful restaurant. Excellent Sat. brunch. Entire party ordered eggs Benedict. Suggest servers advise guests that menu item includes blackened tomato. Causes meal to be very spicy. Each of us who ordered the eggs benedict ended up discarding the tomato after just a few bites.
Do not assume this is a member of The well known restaurant chain The Capital Grill!!!!! The prices are far too high for what you get. My wife ordered a filet that was burnt and I had hot chicken. My water was empty before and after the entire was served. Not a good experience with hot chicken. It took nearly an hour to get our food and the restaurant was half empty. Disappointing experience. Too many good restaurants in Nashville to waste your time and money here.
I booked this for a “fancy” romantic dinner. I paid the fancy price but I didn’t have the atmosphere or meal I expected. I could barely hear my spouse and my waiter seemed to be very distracted the whole time.
Beautiful surroundings to dine. Excellent service, the food is locally sourced, and delicious. A special place for a romantic date, pre theatre dinner.
The ambience of this 107 year old restaurant made it the perfect place to celebrate our 50th anniversary. The lobster bisque and the truffle risotto were delicious. The service was world class and very effort was made to the evening a memorial event. We make the right choice for our special evening.
I had booked reservations for Valentines Day six weeks in advance . We arrived a few minutes early and was immediately usher to our table next to the hostess stand . She had a stack of roses on her stand but was only giving out one to every four ladies that arrived . Upon being seated we we presented with the special menu for the night with a choice of three different plans for the evening there was no pricing on the menu . We had looked online and it looked a little pricy but thinking it was a special night and a classic restaurant it would be a great place and evening for this occasion ... Wrong !!!!! ... 3 course meal , small portions and a cold high traffic table absolutely no atmosphere .... $ 267.00 later we are on our way to enjoy the evening and good music .once is enough for me .My wife said Mellow Mushroom would have been better .
Was extremely disappointed i wasn't notified of the very limited menu on Valentine's. 3 whole choices.
The onion bisque was bland and the deviled eggs we're not very devilish!. But everything else was fantastic! The steaks were cooked perfectly and the other entrees at our table were excellent and tasty. Especially their famous Mac & Cheese. And the desserts are huge! As always, the service was impeccable.
Very nice dinner with friends. The wait staff were attentive and quick on response to any requests made.
The service was excellent. The food was delicious. Thank you for making this occasion memorable for my daughter and me.
The meal was fine. Both of us are vegetarians, so we both got the pimento cheese sandwich. It came with fried green tomatoes. The fries were really tasty. The food was served quickly in consideration of our attending a TPAC performance. The bloody mary was just okay and small. The Kiss drink was very good. I wasn't offered coffee or another drink and the server was not around much. I would have liked coffee, but by the time I wanted it, we were getting close to the end of our time. I will go back again and have some of the breakfast treats like waffles and pancakes. Those looked good.
Our first time there. We came to Nashville for a mother/daughter weekend. Good choice for a restaurant.
I loved my appetizer, the oysters had a wonderful combination of crunch, a hint of sweet and a hint of heat, The ambiance was wonderful and I loved the service.
Historic Nashville tourist attraction.
Hotel food in a rather can-be noisy atmosphere.
I cannot say enough about the food we had. Our waiter was fantastic and we enjoyed every minute we were there. I beleive my waiter was Heidi.
Great spot to get dinner before a show at TPAC. The atmosphere and food was second to none. The servers were all so nice. Very pleasant experience. Please review menu before making a decision to attend. Some non traditional items, but very tasty.
I don’t think the food was as good as what the price would justify. Tom our server was awesome. He was very attentive and informative. Of course the setting was way above standard
The Capital Grille is the BEST place to dine before a performance at the TPAC! It is right across the street, and the waiters are adept at pacing your meal so you will be in your theatre seat on time! Excellent food, locally sourced. There’s something for everyone on this fine, hotel dining room menu.
This is not your every day restaurant as it has a higher price point. However it was one of the best meals I have had at an establishment of this caliber. The fried green tomato appetizer was a perfect blend of tart tomatoes, crunchy exterior and creamy pimento cheese. The cocktails were excellent (try the apricot bourbon cocktail). My main course was cooked to perfection. The filet was so tender and well seasoned. We shared sides (they are family style) of Mac and cheese and Brussels sprouts. Both were tasty and well prepared. Dessert did not disappoint, I got the cobbler.
The service was flawless.
I’ll start with the good. The steak was perfect! I really liked the okra and the Blueberry Cobbler was yummy. There is no TV, (which is a plus.) I’m finding more and more that nice restaurants have TVs? It was quiet. The service was good and it is a very short walk to TPAC. However, all the bread was terrible! The salad was just average as were the potatoes. And the table centerpiece was one sad flower in a vase. Overall, not worth 0ver $400 for the 6 of us. That included one vegiterian that eats like a bird and one couple that split a steak and we don’t drink alcohol. So I’m sure that many people would spend much more. The food use to be much better.
Went on a Thursday night and there was no wait. Food was delicious. I had their standard 14 oz ribeye. Was cooked exactly as requested. Had bernause sauce which was excellent.
It was perfect!
We arrived before the TPAC performance and first of all the valet were excellent.
We were greeted by the hosts and escorted to our table. 1 1/2 hours was allotted and we felt relaxed. We started with a nice Virgin Mary and it was perfect. We both ordered local omelet and it was so delicious stuffed with goat cheese. My husband had Tennessee sausage and I had bacon. We had berries on the side rather than grits or potatoes.
Overall A plus.
