    Ambiance is great, but that’s where the great stopped. Service was very was average, and it took a long time to get our meal given that we were there early and it was not crowded. We have been once before and it was excellent….not this time unfortunately. I would definitely call it overpriced for the quality of the meal we had….

    My wife and I had a very enjoyable date night here last night. We began with the pimento cheese and hoe cakes-excellent, then we shared a caesar salad and both had the White Sea bass. Both were fantastic. For desert, I had the chocolate cake and she had the chocolate mousse which left us stuffed, in a very good way. The setting is a beautiful old house built in 1892. Hence, the name of the restaurant. A very pleasant evening for both of us.

    It's a nice place, quiet. the service was just ok. The food was good but super overpriced, almost double what it should have been. $45 for Chicken? Dinner for 2 cost me $230. not including the tip. It's fine if you have no concerns about the cost. no plans to return

    We never got our waitress’ name but she was fantastic. It was our first time eating at 1892, so we had lots of questions. Our waitress was knowledgeable and patient. Everything we ordered was delicious! My husband is very particular about his duck preparation and he said he hadn’t had duck the good in 20 years. We were celebrating our 33rd anniversary, so it was a real treat to finally try out this restaurant.

    We had another great meal at 1892 last evening. The Thyme Gin cocktail is excellent. Highly recommend. For our meal, we started with the Bibb salad, then had our entrees - the halibut dish for me; the bronzini dish for my husband. We finished our meal with the chocolate pot d crème and coffee. Everything was delicious. Our waiter Will was amazing.

    Very disappointed in our experience. Ambiance is wonderful. Food took close to an hour to get and one of our party sent her steak back TWICE because it was bloody and she had ordered it medium well. When her meal arrived appropriately cooked everyone else was finished eating. I had the scallops and for $44 got six very small scallops and left the restaurant hungry. Server was not sufficiently attentive. I think he knew the food was slow and didn't want to interact with us. While the restaurant is cute and cozy I would never return.

    Absolutely loved the food! The restaurant is intimate with just one room of tables but it makes for a great date night. The staff are amazing, tending to every need. I had the pork chop and it was AMAZING! I have seen a lot of comments about the tables being low - yes they are, but there is plenty of room to push back from the table and relax. Put the phones away, lean into conversation and it’s a perfect night!

    Filet was cooked to perfect temp. The butternut squash entree was excellent. I may just be a little spicy for some, yet we found it to our taste. The key lime pie was divine! We love the atmosphere and Taylor was an excellent server.

    It was an experience I’m glad I had but probably won’t go back again. The tables do not fit men’s legs, and the food was good but way overpriced. An appetizer, pork and a chicken dinner, and one dessert and with tip $150. Not worth it at all.

    Enjoyed the atmosphere and food was great -- not outstanding but still enjoyable. Our waitress was kind but not as attentive as one would expect for a nice restaurant. We didn't love the fact that wine tastings are poured in plastic cups..but otherwise enjoyed the meal. Not sure if we'll be back as there are so many other incredible restaurants in the Nashville / Franklin area that have better service and attention to detail.

    Absolutely fabulous dinner! We had the pork belly lettuce roll-ups, a salad with plums on it that was to die for and the lamb bolognese and everything was out of this world. I even tried two different cocktails and they were both outstanding! Do not miss this place if you are in the Franklin, Lieper's Fork area. It was stellar!

    We had our 6th anniversary dinner here. I was taken directly into flavortown with every bite. Potato croquettes, brown butter trout, steak and potatoes (with an egg on top), key lime pie just like grandma used to make. Also. The cocktails were excellent.

    We were on a road trip to Nashville and we wanted to visit Franklin. We were there last year and thought it was such a beautiful town. We wanted to find a fancier dinner place to celebrate our an anniversary. We ended up finding this gem! It's on a really cute strip and I wish we were there before 5pm to explore the shops. Anyway, let me get to 1892! We came here on a Thursday night. It is beautiful, romantic and cozy. The waitress was really nice and attentive. By far this restaurant provided us with one of the best meals we've ever had! Everything we ordered was fresh and absolutely flavorful! I wish I had room to finish my entree! Appetizers: Potato croquettes- Wow! We couldn't believe how delicious they were! The outside was perfectly crispy.The inside, the potato was so creamy! It had cheese, scallions and I believe bacon bits inside. We also had their burrata salad. Entrees: Pork chop- Wow! Hands down the best pork chop we've ever had! So juicy and delicious! Lamb bolognese- Left us speechless! Everything about this dish was absolutely perfect! Dessert: Chocolate cake with peanut butter mouse! Another great choice! I know that the menu changes based on what's in season but if the entree dishes and potato croquettes happen to be on the menu, you have to get them! I personally think anything you get here won't be a disappointment. Come here hungry and make reservations!

    Food was very good. Very expensive-way beyond the total experience. Understaffed. Do not go by the website menu-not even close. $48 scallops, $40+ chicken, one cocktail, one wine and a tiny 4-6 oz cream desert. $160+with gratuity. Customers with blue jean shorts. Just not on par with the prices for what it is.
