Wonderful experience! The Goat Cheese Brulee was one of the best things we've eaten in a long time. Great service, great menu, and everything we tasted was amazing including 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, a la carte side, and dessert. Definitely recommend for an upscale, yet quiet and affordable dinner!

Food is always 10/10. Employees are amazing and truly make the experience! I go here with family, usually, but it was really fun to go with a group of girl friends on a Saturday night. Highly recommend!

This was my first time eating here since 2018 and a lot has changed in two years. The food wasn’t nearly as good. The restaurant was obviously short staffed. Our server on the patio was overwhelmed and not very pleasant. The hostess helped out and he was very friendly and apologetic.

The food was fantastic but the service took it to the next level! Our server was hands down one of the best servers I’ve ever had. The ambiance was perfect too, loud enough that you couldn’t hear your neighboring tables but not too loud to where you had to yell to the people you were eating with.

It was our first time venturing to the East side since moving to Nashville and Eastland Cafe gave a good first impression. The restaurant was cute and casual but nice. I think the server was new be as she didn’t seem to have a flow down yet but she was nice and hustled. Overall the food was solid. I had the chicken dish which had a lot of flavor but the chicken was a little overcooked. My husband had the shrimp and grits which was good but very heavy. The biggest disappointment was the wine. When most of the wines were $39 I was worried but figured you can still get good wine at lower price points but that was not the case. If you are going to Eastland, take my advice and skip the wine and get a beer or cocktail instead.

Had a nice dinner with my son. The service was great as well as the food. I had salmon and it was wonderful. The COVID-19 measures were in place and every table was social distanced and all the servers were wearing masks.

The recommendations by our server were spot-on, the food really fresh and tasty. He (and the kitchen) were accommodating to a very picky 14-year old that accompanied us. I appreciated the mask-wearing, the social-distanced tables, and the effort of the staff to make everyone comfortable. Additionally, they report installing UV light filtration into the HVAC system; we are not ready to dine indoors, but this was good to know.

Went at Happy Hour and deals were great. $6 Cocktails from 4-6 and lots of small plates at happy hour prices. Fried pimento cheese balls were to die for, and one of the best wedge salads I've ever had. My son had the burger and said it was wonderful. Service was excellent - get back into this place - it's open and delicious.

A very pleasant eating experience.. from walking in the door and being greeted by an employee, we were seated and had drink order taken, maybe within 5 minutes. Meal was served hot and was very tasty. Server was very friendly and helpful. Delightful eating experience.

Quiet 'Elegantly Old' look with a good distance between tables and open kitchen. Our waiter, David (originally from MI by way of Phoenix) was outstanding. The food was served hot and plated beautifully. The French Onion soup was a little bland - but a pinch of salt helped. We enjoyed the bouillabaisse and lamb chops! Both were exceptional.

Unplanned night in Nashville thanks to airline challenge. Didn’t want chain stuff so found Eastland Cafe. Loved the atmosphere, food, service & prices. Pepper jam with the Wedge Salad was great. Burger was very good. Wish I could have gone back the next night to try the Pork Chop. Will return with my wife next time we’re in Nashville.

Love the ambiance at eastland, such a welcoming, warm neighborhood place. Really reasonable happy hour, and on Saturday, so when we started our meal at 5:15 we could take advantage of that! Nice! Food very good, comforting. Just one of my favs in nashville.
