    We had a reservation for a birthday dinner, but we left not long after being seated. The lighting is extremely bright, I mean spotlights on the tables kind of bright, and they didn’t have any kind of background music playing, so the only thing we heard was the conversation of the table next to us. It certainly wasn’t the kind of ambiance we expected from this type of restaurant, so we decided to leave. I will say the hostess was really nice and understanding about it and wished me a happy birthday.

    Our meal was delicious! Pork w/ beans with chorizo, frisée and a slice of a peach. This is the 3rd time that we have eaten there as we were passing through. This meal is the perfect meal. It addresses all of our human tastes, leaving nothing unsatisfied. That is very difficult to do. I like the rearrangement of the plate with less beans-even though they are delicious. This meal should not be missed! Bravo, chef🥰

    Great server -Cat. Helped us navigate the menu which was fantastic. Every item was delicious. Our table shared Brussel sprouts, and each of us had a scallop salad entree, fish w lobster sauce and 2 of us had pork chops - and for dessert we had the Pavlova, and berries with whipped cream. Will be back next time in Franklin.

    Took my daughter to 1799 last night during her visit from Kansas City. Our host (forget his name) and our server Judah, were both amazing! Had cocktails, apps (broiled oysters and crab cakes), salads (wedge and grilled gem caesar) and entrees (cornish hen and the salmon special) and there wasn't a dud in the bunch! I'm so happy that I live 5 minutes away from 1799! We've been several times, and it will definitely stay in our rotation!

    My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at 1799 K&C. The food was fresh, seasonal, and delicious. One of our favorite things was the atmosphere due to being seated in a booth with curtain that made us feel like we were the only people in the restaurant. We have gone to nice places like this before but felt crowded and could hear the conversations of those around us… not the case with 1799. Overall, we would highly recommend and will be returning in the future. The only minor thing which could have been improved was their coffee. I know this seems picky but my wife and I love single origin coffee and we would have been thrilled to have awesome coffee with our dessert… might be asking too much since everything else was amazing… but that would have really put this place over the top.

    Cat provided excellent service. However the main courses need a rehaul. Salads were very good. Bartender had an annoying laugh that carried throughout the restaurant. Bar was understaffed given the number of private parties that were occurring at the same time. Thanks to Cat’s excellent service, we enjoyed a relaxing evening after a long day of driving.

    We have always loved our dining experience at 1799 but unfortunately our most recent visit on Aug. 27 to celebrate my mom’s 84th birthday. The staff was wonderful especially our waiter. The food was way below 1799 standards from a year ago when everything was fabulous. My mom ordered the quail appetizer which was an unappetizing gray color with wilted micro greens (you should definitely bring back the fried quail appetizer that you had a year ago). 2 of us ordered the crab cakes which were almost inedible…they did not taste like fresh crab meat or look like crab, the Caesar salad was another disappointment (bring back the kale Caesar), and my brother in law ordered the special rib eye for $96 which was served cold with steak sauce on top (really should be served on the side). I really did not want to write this review because we love 1799 and everyone who works there but the kitchen needs to come together and get back on track to serving dishes they can be proud of.

    We went there to celebrate our anniversary. It is in the lovely Harpeth Hotel. The restaurant is decorated in a contemporary style that does not fit the rest of the hotel. It seemed oddly out of place. Our server was pleasant and attentive. The menu did not have enough classic American dishes. Most of them were a little too exotic for our taste. Overall, the food was overpriced for the quality and considering the experience we received. We will not be dining there again. There just isn't enough to draw us back considering the high price.

    It is a very good restaurant. Nonetheless, my halibut was a little bit overcooked and the bourbon pudding could have been a little bit less sweet with a more pronounced bourbon taste. Overall, portion are correct. It was freezing cold in the restaurant. These are the only reasons why I did not give 5 stars.

    The hotel, its decor and location, is outstanding. Sadly, on a Saturday night, the singer in the adjacent lounge was loud all the way into the dining room. A table of shrieking women added to the uncomfortable noise level. The Parmesan popovers brought to the table were not done inside, and a quail appetizer showed blood at the joint. Service was good, and the oyster appetizer was the best I have ever had. I will come back. Valet parking made getting in comfortable.

    We love 1799. This was a birthday celebration. In the past the server knew the occasion and mentioned it. No mention this time at check in or server. I mentioned it in my reservation. Food was excellent as always. Service started out five star spiraled down to two star. Scott really wasn’t interested in us. It was only a $500 plus bill and we were there with close friends for several hours. We probably overstayed our welcome. We will be back. Love 1799 and the hotel and recommend you to our friends. Thanks. Phil Barnett 615-785-0799.

    Extremely disappointing. The restaurant itself is gorgeous - truly lovely ambience. It was quiet and we were seated in a private booth which we really enjoyed. We ordered the Brussels Sprouts appetizer and it was burnt to the point of bitterness. They were not good at all. We took a few bites and when the server asked for our opinion, we were honest with her. She apologized but offered no reparation. Our main courses arrived, I ordered my meat medium well and it was grey through and through, dry as a bone. SHE DID OFFER TO HAVE IT REMADE. However, it took well over 30 minutes for our main course to arrive (remember we didn’t eat the appetizer) so I chose not to wait and kept what I had. (I was hangry at this point) Well I shouldn’t have and that was my mistake. I could not gut my way through it. The sides on the plate were no better. My broccolini was cold and the potato/mushroom combination was deep deep fried and just….. not good. She took my plate away with 3 bites gone. I was not expecting a comped bill by ANY stretch but I will say I was stunned that not ONE thing was taken off the bill. At least comp our desserts (meh at best. We didn’t really eat those either). If you’re willing to re-make the streak then you’re willing to absorb the cost of the meal, so MAKE IT RIGHT WITH THE CUSTOMER. So 2 people barely took bites of below average meals for $200. I’ll never go back. And to add insult to injury, they don’t validate parking - which is truly just comical to me. You’re inside of a hotel - why on earth would we pay to park to eat at your restaurant? Unheard of. I hadn’t seen my friend since pre-Covid. We were so excited to finally get out together and were wildly disappointed.

    Had to wait almost an hour for our food. Apparently there was a large group that had precedence. My grandson had to leave to go to work & didn’t get to eat his meal. My omelet was tough. Didn’t eat much of it. Waitress was nice enough but that didn’t help the situation. It will be a while before I return.

    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. Very comfortable. The guitarist/singer was not bad but volume started out fine then got louder and louder 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.
