Went to Fleming’s for the tomahawk and they were out of the steaks for the night. I ordered the 20 oz bone in ribeye instead and the chef came to the table to offer an item from the menu of my choosing. The restaurant went above and beyond. More

American | Downtown, Nashville

Much better than most hotel restaurants, trendy decor, good food, pricey... but still a hotel restaurant. We were there for Valentine's Day because we were going to a musical at TPAC then spending the night at the Renaissance Hotel. The clientele was a mix of dressed up for Valentine's (like us), casual hotel guests, and Nashville Predators fans for the game that night. The food and prices are upscale, but atmosphere is more trendy casual. We had the sugar-glazed brussel sprouts which were excellent, cheese fondue that came with veggies and tots (very good), ribeye with cauliflower (ribeye pretty good and cauliflower surprisingly good), and crab-stuffed trout which was interesting but wouldn't order again. There is a bench that runs nearly the length of the restaurant with tables lined up so one person sits on the bench and the other person sits in a chair across from them - THE BENCH IS TOO LOW. Service was good and they let us put 2 chairs by our table rather than use the low bench - we saw at least one other group moves tables for the same reason. The other minor negative - the ribeye comes with potatoes so I asked to substitute for a salad that was listed on the side item menu but the server said we were only allowed to substitute with cauliflower.

Made a reservation for 10 but showed up with 16. The staff sprang into action and made it work perfectly. Despite the large party, the food arrived quickly - pleasing a group that ranged from one to 89. All the staff was so welcoming. This is a go to place for large groups. More

Discover Nashville

Country music can be polarizing. You either love it, or you don’t. Nashville’s food scene, on the other hand, is tough not to like. There’s something for almost every taste and we hear the hot wings just keep getting better. Be it cold brew coffee houses, the ever-popular barbecue, or inventive Southern dishes—you name it, Nashville’s got it. And yes, be prepared to be serenaded by buskers on street corners. It’s called the Music City for a reason.
