Nice evening out with my wife. Food was good, service was good. The space looked tired and in need of a RE-fresh. The room we were seated in has no appeal, very plain and nothing special about it. Looked directly into the kitchen which was another turnoff and noisy distraction I have been here several times over the years and always sat in the back which is much more desirable seating.

We have enjoyed Mere Bulles many times over the years and consistently have a good experience.
Thanksgiving night was not our usual experience. The Operations Director stood behind me for well over 20 minutes talking and at times a little loud to the table behind us. I turned around and looked at him a couple of times hoping he would realize he was keeping us from having a normal conversation. He never acknowledged me or slowed down his conversation. There was a table of four across from us that seemed to be put off as well. Finally, when he left the atmosphere and ambiance were what we have come to expect.
I think it's great for management to engage with customers, but to the extent this manager went to is a detriment to your business.

Based on your recommendation we anticipated Dollor amount of 100.00 for two including gratuity. The meal was 170.00 including gratuity. As I said last nite I will not take your recommendation again or will participate in your games. 32.65 which you told us was far from 55.00ca plate + side item and no alcohol. Delete me and all information you have on me!!!

My wife and I have been to Mere Bulles for lunch a few time and for the first time we visited the restaurant for dinner. Our son was home from college and we decided to try the restaurant for dinner. We had a wonderful time. The wait staff was excellent, the food was outstanding and the atmosphere was second to none. I highly recommend going to Mere Bulles before you ever consider some chain restaurant. We will be coming back frequently.

First time at MB and we'll definitely be back. We were seated as soon as we walked in the door and sat in the sun porch. It was cool outside, but even with heat, my wife was chilled and wore her jacket. Everything else was outstanding. James, our waiter, was extremely knowledgable, friendly, and made great suggestions. I had the fresh catch special, which was Red Snapper, and it was excellent. My wife had the short ribs and, again, excellent. I tried hers, since there was more than she could eat on her own and the ribs were well seasoned and very tender. The mashed potatoes were like her mother used to make...excellent, and were those jicama slices on the plate? Love jicama. My Old Fashioned was perfect and the embossed clear ice cube was an excellent touch to really make this a great cocktail. My wife slurped down her Cosmo before I could even get a taste, so expect she also loved this. I would highly recommend MB for anyone looking for an upscale dinner with great service.

This is the first time in years we’ve in at Mere Bulles. While the restaurant itself is beautiful, the food was just okay. I had a fillet, and my husband had the prime rib, and they were both overcooked a bit. I ordered the side of macaroni and cheese which sounded really delicious but was pretty much tasteless. I had to put salt on it. The best part of the meal honestly was the carrot cake dessert which was absolutely delicious! For the price, and the food not great, probably won’t be back.

We went there for our anniversary dinner. It started a little bit on the wrong foot as when we arrived our table was not ready yet. We decided to have a drink while waiting. Phenomenal bartender! Took a bit longer than expected for the table to be ready, and once sit, it took long time to be taken the order. However, the manager and our server took great care of use throughout dinner after that initial confusion. Food was superb and Nolan was very attentive. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and for sure we’ll be back anytime we are nearby Nashville/Brentwood.

Consistently great food, and top-notch service. It never disappoints - the seafood and steaks are always the highest quality and cooked perfectly - the other thing that really makes it a great place is that the half priced wine! It's always an enjoyable dining experience, and a great value for the quality and great service.

I really want to give Mere Bulles a good review here, but they dropped the ball with my first anniversary. I reserved the table a month in advance and requested a seat next to the fireplace upstairs as it is our favorite spot, but upon calling in a few days in advance, found out that it was not available and reserved the table next to the downstairs fireplace instead. We arrived 30 mins early, checked in, and went to have drinks at the bar. After we were done with the cocktails, we went to be seated at our table but somehow the hostess sat someone else there! We didn’t want to make a fuss over it, so accepted a table in the same room, but it was very disappointing when they messed up the tables, when the service wasn’t to what we usually experienced, and when our entrees were not very good. Mere bulles at its best is worth a trip, but I’m not sure if I’ll be back.

Update, Revised Review: Management saw my original post above, apologized, and offered to make it right by inviting us back again on the house to re-celebrate. This time it was definitely mere bulles at its best and there was no confusion with the tables. Our server that night was particularly attentive which definitely contributed to the experience the second time round. Very much appreciate managements efforts to regain our trust!

The place is very charming. The she crab bisque is the best I have ever had. I enjoyed the French toast and the chocolate pancakes. There was an omelet station and a prime rib carving station. I had a peach Bellini which was yummy ! They had a peg board with donuts with sprinkles which the little ones loved.

It was very nice to experience a traditional brunch with stations and a nice variety. So tired of restaurants calling their individual breakfast items on a menu “Brunch.” We don’t do brunch out that often because its usually just breakfast items that can easily be made at home. This was a true BRUNCH! Service was pretty good especially considering the lack of staff most restaurants have these days. Only problem was they kept taking our silverware and not replacing it. Prime ribs was EXCELLENT and we’re not big prime rib fans. Loved the omelette - chef did a great job on that! Husband even had him make him an egg scramble with all the fixins and said it was delicious (he’s not an egg fan by the way) Another favorite surprisingly was the fried chicken. Very tasty! Loved the cheesy grits but didn’t care for the hash brown casserole. Dessert offerings could have been better but the key lime pie bite was DELICIOUS and who doesn’t love a chocolate fountain and strawberries. I think we will definitely be back for brunch!

Very nice upscale restaurant with tasty food and good service. We ate in the living room where they serve brunch on Sundays. It was surprisingly easy to have a conversation unlike some restaurants which have high ceilings and huge open space which are SO loud. We went to celebrate an anniversary and were pleased with our experience.
