We reserved a table for 8 on short notice and the staff was most accommodating, providing a nice table in a quiet section of the restaurant. Our waitperson, also the bar tender, was very pleasant and fun and provided excellent service in spite of having double duties. The food was excellent - Southern / American fare at its best, though a bit on the pricey side. All of us enjoyed the evening.

Disappointed. My guest and I both had salads for lunch (with salmon) and each had a glass of wine. A six oz glass of wine was $18 for a bottle that I could have bought at retail for less than that. They added a 4.95 charge for the wine for what I have no idea. Total including tax was $88. The food and service was fine, the charges for the wine ridiculous.

We were not advised that the dinner was buffet that night. Very difficult to navigate in a wheelchair with my 98 year old mother on mother’s day. Food was cold and picked over at 6:30. Disappointing to say the least because we’ve eaten there many times before. Add to that the expensive tab. Will be sure to speak with a “live” representative next time.

When I booked Mere Bulles, I wasn't sure what to expect. When I got there, the first thought I had took me back to a place we used to call New Orleans Manor in Nashville, which closed many years ago. This place is perfect. The atmosphere, food, and staff are second to none. Already planning my next trip.

Mere Bulles was the absolute perfect place to bring our mom for Mother's Day! The food spread was incredible, the atmosphere was beautiful, the service was out of this world! Our server, in particular (in the patio room) was exceptional! He was so kind & funny & knowledgeable-- we thoroughly enjoyed him! The 'all hands on deck' approach and amount of teamwork just radiated from start to finish, and it was a real pleasure to experience genuinely happy employees! No mumbles or grunts when people were walking by--just a lot of really happy employees and customers! The food was SO good & it was probably our best dining experience in our 3 years living in Nashville! Hats off!

Went here a couple of months ago, was very pleased with everything. Decided at the last minute to try and get a reservation for Mother’s Day. We kept checking Open Table and finally secured a time for 2:00PM for four.
It was VERY crowded as expected, however we were seated within 10 minutes of our schedule time. It was an “buffets only” for Mother’s Day. It was amazing! The selections and the quality of the food was overwhelming. Everything we tried was terrific!
This is one of those places where the food and service exceeds expectations. Not to mention that the price was very reasonable for what you received!
Will return with pleasure!

The food was overpriced and not that great. The best part of the meal was my carrot cake dessert. We had excellent service and when my steak was overdone it was paid for and I got a free dessert, which was very nice. We live in Gallatin, so frankly, it was not special enough to make a second trip.

I love Mere Bulles! Their Charleston She-Crab Bisque is amazing - I always order it and my guests loved it as well. Our entrees this time were salmon, steak, and the pork chop. All 3 entrees were presented beautifully and were excellent. Our server was wonderful and the setting is beautiful and relaxing. Thank you for providing great food on a consistent basis!

We stop here almost every year traveling home from our Gulf Shores, AL vacation. If you are looking for a fine dining experience away from the busy downtown Nashville area, this is the place to go! The food, pacing, presentation, etc are all fantastic. Service is always top notch but never intrusive. If you are a wine drinker, they have an extensive wine list and all bottles are half off every day! My one recommendation when dining here would be to request Maggie as your server. She is amazingly good, friendly, attentive and goes the extra mile to please her guests. She even remembered us from a year ago which may or ma not be a good thing : ). The bottom line is her service combined with their food is a world class experience.

Cool place. Good food. Great Bloody Mary's. Service was good too. A few pet peaves though. Don't expect that every customer is a repeat customer. Don't sit a mature couple in a room with several tables with young kids. For buffets, put a couple "line starts here" signs for the newbies, or explain it when someone comes up to the omlette station. We'll go back for the food, now that we know the house rules.
