    Everything was great up until the entrees. Great service, good drinks. Appetizers & wine were outstanding. Then the main course came & was very disappointed. My wife our friend had the pork chop. It came out overcooked & burned on on the outside. I ordered the shrimp & grits. It was not one of the better shrimp & grit entrees that I have had. Not worth the $400 we spent. Save your money & go to Red Pony or Cork & Cow. 1799 not worth it.

    My other half and I went for my birthday/anniversary. Valet parking was so convenient. Parking in downtown Franklin can be a nightmare. We had a drink at the bar. It was so homey yet elegant. We didn’t care for the singer/guitarist. The volume was too loud and sound system definitely needs upgrading. We were seated at a booth. Loved it! Very private and romantic and really cut down on the loud volume in the bar. Food was excellent! Great service. Will be back for sure.

    Our first dining experience here was not good. We made a reservation for brunch. We arrived 3 minutes early, the restaurant was not busy, we had a 1:15 reservation. We checked in with the hostess & she said ok, it will be a few minutes to set up your table. We waited about 5 minutes, that was ok, but what is the point of making a reservation & seeing the restaurant nearly empty & tables all set up & ready but then have to wait for a table? Anyway, the hostess seated us & said our server would be with us shortly. There were about 3 servers running around, & I could tell that they seemed annoyed to have customers. Our server greeted us & we ordered 2 unsweet teas with lemon, & 1 mimosa. Service was slow, & only 1 of our teas had lemon. We both ordered omelets with ham & veggies. Took awhile to get our food & it seemed as though the restaurant was empty. A server brought out our food & placed it on the table but didn’t ask if we needed anything else. The potatoes that came with the omelette were cold. The omelettes were not seasoned & our first thought was it needed some salt & pepper, but there were none on the table but I noticed some shakers on a hostess stand so I got up myself to get some. Our server was nearby but never acknowledged that I even got up. Our omelettes were suppose to have ham & veggies but there was hardly any of either in them. At least the egg/cheese was warm! The mimosa tasted good, but I only ate a few bites of potatoes & “egg/cheese”, couldn’t find much ham or veggies except for a couple tiny cubes of ham & a couple tiny cubes of red bell pepper. For a $70 brunch this was not acceptable. We won’t be back. Terrible service & food.

    We had an amazing experience overall! Food was delicious and service was wonderful. This was our first time here but we will be back. Also highly recommend and appreciate their efforts for dietary restrictions- our server had all the information that she needed to properly inform about ingredients in dishes and was extremely knowledgeable / helpful on how to accommodate dairy restriction. She was amazing all around and we look forward to returning!

    Really wanted to love this place as we have never been and lived here for 4 years but it feel short. We waited WAY too long for our food about 45 minutes and weren’t even compensated or offered a free drink or something. Way over priced for what you get.. we will not be returning

    Beautiful restaurant and the food was great! Especially enjoyed the crab cake appetizer, beef tenderloin and bone-in ribeye. The whipped red potatoes with the tenderloin were maybe the best part :) I’d recommend requesting a booth for a cozy experience (we did not but will if we’re back!).

    We arrived 20 min early and were told to go sit at the bar. We did and at 5:30 were texted our table was ready. The menu is nice. But the bar menu does not carry into the restaurant. We asked to order oysters on the half shell. They were served on rock salt and were warm, not chilled at all. We got 9 out of the dozen we ordered. The cocktails were good. They average $14. A glass of red wine was $19. Just an FYI. She had the scallops and I had the cornish hen. Both were delicious. We closed with key lime creme brulee. Good but overly crisp and a small portion. The hotel is very nice. We may dine there again but there are others places with better food.

    Always so wonderful. The scallop dish is amazing! It’s my favorite. And my husband really enjoyed the shrimp and grits (He had the lobster stock replaced with chicken stock because of an allergy… Still absolutely delicious!). Beautiful restaurant and great live music going on in the bar area. But we sat farther away so that it didn’t overpower our dinner conversation. The bread pudding was also very good. I would like to see a light, sweet, wine by the glass on the menu. But other than that, a perfect restaurant.

    The restaurant is in „The Harpeth“, one of my favorite hotels in the Nashville environment. The food is good, the menu not overloaded, the things they offer cover an appropriate range, so everybody might find something. The ambiance is modern and due its size not very noisy. Yes, it’s pricey but overall fair and I would and will come again. If you just want to get a bite, chose the bar and take the skewers… they are amazing and come out of the same kitchen… and the bar tender are really good…

    This was a birthday celebration for our-of-town friends and our first visit to 1799. We were quite impressed. As our server advised, their dinner menu is not extensive, but what they offer is very well done. We had the scallops, tenderloin, and prime rib special; all were excellent as were the desserts. Very nice wine and bourbon lists too. Dress code is business casual and most guests adhered to it. We will definitely be back.

    Our first time at restaurant. The server Jude was excellent. Very knowledgeable about menu and checked on use at with appropriate timing. We enjoyed the Roam Cocktails that had Sherry and Raspberry mixed together. Crab cakes for appetizer were flavorful. Pork chop was best we have had in a while with smoky flavor and tender meat. Shrimp and grit were good but more soupy from sauce so really needed a spoon to eat. We didn’t have time for dessert but will try next time .

    Appetizers were excellent. Very disappointed in the portion on the halibut fish...small square of fish with basically no sides. Not a good value. Definitely order extra sides if you go that direction. The pork chop was a nice, filling meal. The molten chocolate cake was not very flavorful, but the bread pudding looked like a great choice. Great vibe and service, but left disappointed considering how expensive it is and to not be full.

    Extremely pleasant staff. Nice menu…. We had sweet biscuits for an app and for brunch we had a hot chicken biscuit and cob salads. Wait staff, as I mentioned, were all very pleasant, yet not trained to the standard "advertised". Littel nuances like cleaner spray bottles sitting out in the dining area and a general lack of situational awareness and timing. Abby the bartender was the exception. She's on her game. Long wait to order with a nearly empty dining room, and sweet biscuits arrived after another LONG wait… burned… should have never left the kitchen. yet got past the chef and the waitress and made it to the table. Hot chicken was ..meh.. and not hot by any standard in the “hot” known universe… cob salads were done well..and plentiful to say the least.
