Husk - Nashville Ratings and Reviews
We had such high expectations of this location (we are snobby San Franciscans so take this review with a grain of salt). The service was impeccable, as was the ambiance. Just lovely!
I would say the appetizer menu was somewhat interesting but pricey, so much so that we all shared the ham plate because nothing else looked worth it. The diner menu was a bit dull (just a pork, beef, chicken, and fish - really a chicken breast with BBQ sauce, really?). I love a paired-down menu with interesting sides, but nothing jumped out at me -- especially given the high cost. Dude, where's my veg? My side was a tiny biscuit with some sauteed mushrooms over the top. There wasn't a separate "side dish" menu you could order from, which is a real lost opportunity given the awesome local food producers in this area. I would have loved a bit more diversity/make me feel like I am in the south!
The wine list was fun and eclectic (loved the bubblies), but a few of the whites by the glass were just too sweet to be paired with dinner.
Loved this restaurant for the historic features and décor. Really thought it was a lovely setting. We did feel that the food was average. We didn't find it flavorful enough and most of our meal looked like it was just about burned - case in point a cornbread that was the color of coffee outside and very dry inside. Think we had higher expectations of what it would be to dine at Husk.
This place is highly over-rated. The food is over-priced and poor quality.
The portions were small and the prices large. The chicken wings appetizer was $16 for 6 burnt dry chicken wings, the sauce that accompanied was on par with sauces from a bottle. The Vegetable plate was a mess and none of it was remotely tasty.
We love Husk in Charleston. So disappointed in Husk Nashville. Great service but food was disappointing. Apps were great: steak tartare & the charred wings. Dinner was awful; swordfish was still partially frozen in the middle, the pork was all fat. Unfortunately we both woke up at 2 am sick to our stomachs. What a shame!
We had such a special meal eating with Alexis, our thoughtful server, as we enjoyed the flavorful shrimp and grits to start, refreshing our taste buds with the light yet earthy spinach and strawberry salad then moving onto the main course of pork (which was melt in our mouth delicious) that accompanied the most flavorful butter beans I've ever had, as well as a perfectly cooked medium steak with oven roasted veggies. The only thing we had which wasn't the bees knees was the table cornbread, as it didn't jive with what us Texans normally think of for cornbread, as it was dense and very cornmeal forward, rather than being sweet like I've grown up eating. That said, the ambiance was perfect and the food options were plentiful. It's going to be our special Nashville restaurant which we will recommend to friends, family, and strangers alike!
My best friend and I went to Husk for dinner after she ran the Rock n Roll half-marathon. I'd read mixed reviews since they reopened, as well as very negative commentary about their ability to accommodate gluten-free diners (I have a wheat allergy), so I was hesitant going in. However, the meal and service did not disappoint. (And for the price, it *should* be a great experience.) While I regret I cannot remember our server's name, he was incredibly helpful and just plain nice. He was knowledgeable about what on the menu could be made gluten-free and the drinks. Our food (shrimp and grits appetizer, steak for my friend, swordfish for me) was delicious and our drinks were exactly what we were hoping for. There was absolutely nothing negative about our experience whatsoever. I just wish I lived in Nashville so I could go back.
I had been wanting to go to Husk for quite the while and finally made it happen! It was truly a memorable experience and HIGHLY recommend. The historic Italianate home in Rutledge Hill area with surrounding grounds--gardens as well as kitchen garden in back--absolutely lovely! The old Stable has been renovated and available for private parties. We had dinner post TPAC performance and our group of 4 shared appetizers to start, wonderful wine list-----to dessert---everything was Outstanding. We were seated downstairs with a lovely view of Kitchen and Herb gardens. Our Service was on point! --Our server Nick very knowledgeable about their Daily special (menu changes daily with an abundant array of choices) as well as the Wine list and could not have been more attentive. The Special appetizer of the Carolina Rice with Crab claws was one of the most delectable bites I have ever experienced. The Chacuterie plate was outstanding as well and recommend for sharing. I had the Chicken special---breast "mopped with sorghum and seasonings" served with mushroom gravy over home made biscuit. We ended the evening with dessert of a pecan/caramel concoction of Crème served in a glass. Am already planning a special night out to surprise my husband there--it was truly a special and fabulous meal and evening!
Warning: Husk is more time machine than restaurant. Never before has a restaurant taken me back to my childhood quite like Husk. The experience, from start to finish, was basically flawless. The highlight, as strange as this sounds, was the cornbread. The cornbread took me back to my grandmother's house when I was 10 years old, having Sunday Supper after church. I've had great cornbread over the years, but nothing took me back to my childhood like Husk. I could go on and on about each dish, but I'll spare you that review. The bottom line is this...whether you're from the South and you want to experience a trip back in time or you're from another part of the country and want to experience one of the best aspects of the South, make a reservation. I'd be willing to bet a skillet of that cornbread you will not be disappointed.
I was so excited to take my mother in law and sister in law to Husk as I had been to the one in Charleston and loved it. We were meeting for a girls weekend in Nashville to celebrate my mother in law's 75th birthday.
The waitress was fantastic, service great, wine list and ambiance wonderful. However, the food was VERY salty. All 5 of us found that our entrees tasted so strongly of salt. If the kitchen can fix the salt level it would be great. However, based on the current food I would not return. We went to other restaurants in Nashville that had much better food. Disappointing.
We were really excited to go to Husk in Nashville because we had been to the original location in Charleston and thought it was a great dining experience. We appreciate good restaurants so always research our choices when we travel.
Unfortunately, we were underwhelmed by our visit to Husk in Nashville. The restaurant atmosphere is very nice. We especially liked the gardens.
Our waitress was friendly if a little pretentious. We ordered the charcuterie platter which we loved. Another appetizer that didn't work was the spinach salad with strawberries & feta. It included a topping of embers/ashes that may be a trend. really didn't like even though it seemed to be a trendy addition. It might be "in" as it was in several other menu items but it was nasty. For our entree we did not see any obvious choices. When we asked about the portion size of the hanger steak, because we didn't want something too big. Our waitress suggested the ribeye which was an "off menu" option. That was what we decided to share. The steak was ok but had a lot of fat and silverskin. The selection of accompanying sauces were good.
We planned to have dessert & coffee but we didn't see anything that appealed. And about the time we were deciding, two tables of very young girls were seated next to us. They were friends, talking between tables & having a great time. They were dressed for a picnic not a nice dinner in an upscale restaurant & their demeanor matched their dress. It was time to leave. We spent over $200 with food & wine and somehow it just wasn't great.
This has been on our bucket list for a long time. Well worth the trip to Nashville. The venue itself is unique. Extremely comfortable. Our server Nick took time to discover what we likes, why we were so excited to come, and we felt absolutely comfortable putting ourselves in his hands even though we are true foodies. From starters right down to coffee and dessert he absolutely took pride and enjoyment from providing us an unrivaled dining experience. Everyone one of the support staff took the same care. We were encouraged to enjoy each course at our leisure. We are Sean Brock devotees but kudos to the staff.
We had a great experience at Husk. The building is a converted house with lots of personality. Our server was excellent, the food was tasty (the pig skin slider appetizer was amazing) and beautifully plated. So glad we were able to get a reservation. One drawback, we felt the meal was pricey.
Compared to Husk in Charlotte, this branch was truly disappointing. Our spinach salad was tough to chew and was chintzy with the strawberries. The entree was small (swordfish) and was somewhat bland, as was the barbecued cabbage side. The service staff was great but the meal was a bust.
Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu but was also pretty pushy and didn't give us very much time to decide what we wanted. And it was early in the evening so it wasn't all that busy yet. We even felt rushed to decide what drinks to order. The food was good, but felt over priced.
My friend and I went for brunch and it was one of the best meals we had while we were in Nashville! I got the burger and it is probably one of the best I have ever had. Our server was attentive and helpful with the menu. I highly recommend coming for brunch!
