Food was well prepared with thoughtful touches. Unfortunately, both our soup course and main course arrived lukewarm. It would have been so much better if both courses would have been served really hot. The desserts were wonderful. Very well prepared and just the right size. The meal was fairly expensive for the food we had, but we enjoyed the company of our good friends.

Brunch on Christmas Eve was delicious. Cheesy grits are off the chain We had the place to ourselves with only one other family. Very quiet. Great to free valet.

The menu was rather limited. I didn't mind the Meat & 3 option but I didn't feel there was much choice or variety. The Pumpkin Soup and Fig Old Fashioned were amazing. The pork shoulder, creamed corn and sautéed mushrooms were good, but didn't blow my socks off. Didn't have dessert but the coffee was horribly burnt and not even consumable. The server, Derek, was amazing and made some great recommendations specifically about the soup and cocktail choices.

Food was great. Nice selection of wines. Two people had the shrimp and grits and said it was the best they had ever had. I had the hot fish was quite good and not too too spicy. I have two issues with the restaurant though. First, very hard to find appetizers to split. Our waiter suggested the cobb salad which we split only we then had to ask for serving spoons for it. It was quite good but not really a great appetizer to share for 4 people. Put some descriptions on the food. We had to ask what airline chicken was and what hot fish was. There were descriptions on the appetizers but not on the meals. Also, a couple found it confusing as to what was actually on the menu. As I said though, food was great and will definitely go back.

Convenient location and very good seafood. Not crazy crowded like many of the downtown restaurants.

A pleasant surprise! Both the food and the service were top notch. This was especially appreciated as we had eaten the night before at another restaurant where we had less than stellar service. We enjoyed Mason's very much and will eat here again when we return to Nashville. For all 4 of us, the food was very good, as were the waiter's recommendations. Thank you for a great meal!

Despite a 10:45am reservation, we weren't seated for 20 minutes. The maître d' said our table was "being cleaned" a half empty restaurant.

We told the maître d' we had to get going by 11:45am for the eclipse, but even then, no one came to our table. Finally, 30 minutes after our reservation time and with no menus/service in sight, we had to leave.

Burger/sliders were excellent. Sat at the Mason's bar to amp up the energy (served full menu). The restaurant area was too quiet for our tastes. Cocktails are spot on. Service was fantastic. Get the bread pudding for dessert.

Over truffle sales fries, hummus no flavor, sweet potato chips old, pork dry and flavorless, steak was tender but under cooked, creamed mushrooms very good, mac n cheese tasty. Service was great but we were the only table at dinner time, only two more came in while we were there. No a great dinning experience.

We were not staying at the hotel, but found the restaurant via OpenTable. The restaurant area we were in was largely empty as most people were by the bar and the big game going on. The host/server was absolutely wonderful. He was patient, very knowledgeable, and very easy to talk to. The food was wonderful and the ambiance was excellent for our group of 8.

Really happy with our dinner at Mason's. Hidden gem in the Loew's Venderbilt hotel. Would go back in a second!!

Wow! What creativity this chef has with local farm to table yummies! After perusing the menu for the longest time, we ordered items recommended by our waiter.

We started with an order of the Carnitas Tacos and were pleasantly surprised by the mounds of meat on the tortillas. Excellent flavor profile - moist meat - scrumptious verde sauce. Devoured them in under five minutes. We ordered the Hog N Hominy plate as well to be overwhelmed by a huge portion of juicy pork bursting with flavor on top of a hominy grit base and cornbread. Whewee it made our taste buds sing with delight! Lastly we ordered a BBQ Pork sandwich and their "famous" BBQ potato chips. Said sammie had at least 4 inches high of perfectly smoked shredded pork slathered in a perfectly seasoned bbq sauce and topped with a heaping helping of sassy slaw.

We WILL return to try the rest of the menu soon!

This is a good choice after work when I don't want to get the car out. I see the food as a little overdescribed and underwhelming. On this dine, my creamed mushrooms were virtually inedible because of the rubbery and woody pieces I had to spit out, although the flavoring was nice. The creamed corn and airline chicken were good, but not exceptional. On an earlier occasion, I ate the hog & hominy. The pickled cabbage was used for garnish only and should not have rated a mention. Likewise the hominy was in little evidence. The dish tasted good but wasn't as advertised, in my opinion. The waitstaff are engaging and the atmosphere is quiet, so I will probably eat here again since I stay at Loews when I'm in Nashville.

Charles did a great job! Our food took a while to come out and Charles took care of everything. When our food did arrive, the Salmon was AMAZING! Will defiantly be back. Thank you for the great customer service!
