Excellent as always
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.
Menu choices were excellent, something for most every taste preference.
Food was fresh and delicious, prepared from scratch by a skilled cook staff.
Wait staff was attentive and friendly.
Overall a quality evening out, everyone was very complimentary of venue and we all will definitely be going back regularly.
I’ve been to Eastland many times-it’s always great! This was the first time I’ve sat out back and I loved it!
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.
I love this place! Our server, David, was incredible! Our experience from beginning to end was wonderful! We will be back for sure! Thank you David!😁
Love the staff there! Especially the Chef. He was very welcoming!!!
Great small plates and happy hour options. We got to sample a large part of the delicious menu and our server, David was great!
Wonderful food and service. Lovely outdoor seating options.
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.
Wonderful experience. Kind staff and delicious food. David was a great server.
We had a great experience at Eastland Cafe. Our server, David, was very knowledgeable and friendly. The food was delicious and reasonably priced for the quality. We will definitely be back.
Eastland has been a favorite since they opened. Best to get there before 7 unless you like a loud room.
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.
The food, service and drinks were all great and for those who are concerned about COVID, this restaurant is taking all the necessary precautions and more. If you are ready to leave home and treat yourself this is a good choice!
Second time as good as the first time, great ambiance
Had a wonderful meal! Ordered the butterfly chicken. Spectacular. Our server, David, was a real professional. Will be back!
Very nice experience .… the outside seating was relaxing and the drink menu was fun and distinct !
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.
Always great food and service. Tremendous experience. We sat on the front patio socially distant and enjoyed it very much.
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.
Favorite place to dine whenever we are in Nashville. Service is well paced. Food always well prepared. Happy hour is a great time to start with wine and tapas.
They were closed
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.
Marco, at the bar, was fantastic! He made us feel comfortable and like we were regulars.
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.
David was great! Best pork chop in the city
Fabulous food from app to dessert. Seated in bar which was very noisy and crowded. I did not specify on seating area when I made my reservation. Service was great. Will return and ask for table on restaurant side
We had a birthday celebration with friends planned.
Was running a bit late - crashville traffic!!! Called a head to see if they would hold table. No problem. Manager was very cordial and thanked me.
Service was excellent....thank you Tracy for going the extra mile.
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.
Great food and service, consistently good every time we go.
Food served cold. Replaced with warmer entree'. Set menu made this dining experience a bit pricey.
Excellent meal from the appetizers through the dessert. All ingredients are fresh. Chef Paul is innovative. The bouillabaisse is to kill for! Waiters are attentive and knowledgeable about the menu.
We went in for drinks and appetizers at happy hour on a Saturday and had great service from our waiter, Ken, and the others on staff that night. Food and drinks were delicious, quick and priced great! It's always a hit!
Always a great atmosphere and food is always delicious! Enjoyed our visit.
Great service, great food, great atmosphere.
Who could ask for anything more?
One of my favorite places.
The staff and restaurant did a wonderful job! I’ll certainly be back!
I met a friend for Happy Hour and it was perfect. Wait staff was attentive, but not overwhelming. She gave great suggestions on what to order and we loved the space. 10/10 will return.
Try the goat cheese appetizer! This place is great - has a bit of everythi
