    I'm afraid I can't recommend this place. Oversalted, undercooked, and untimely. Our party of four went to 1892 on a Sunday evening. Salmon appetizer for the table was very good. For entrees, we ordered steak frites, halibut, rack of lamb, and duck. Dishes took nearly 90 minutes to arrive, and did not come all at once. All dishes were overspiced, and all were undercooked (think blue meat on beef that is ordered medium rare). You can't ask $40 a plate for food and service at this level.

    Have eaten here several times and been a favorite. Last night the food was not good. Tuna Nachos - tuna was not good, couldn’t eat it. Blackened trout was very salty. We like it enough we will try again, but if the food is not good - the prices seem even higher

    This was our first time dining here and we loved it!! The menu changed based on what is fresh, which is both smart and exciting. We sampled five dishes and had to bring food home because portion sizes are generous. The staff are all super sweet and efficient too. We will be back!

    This was a awesome place to celebrate our engagement. Emma was one of the best servers we’ve had. She kept us well entertained with the ghost stories. We even heard it walking across the ceiling. We will be back the next time we’re in the area.

    Visiting from out of town. We waited for over an hour and never got food. Finally left. I know everyone is short staffed and the waitress was very nice, but had to ask a few times for update on order. We drove a long way to get there. Cute town, but need to figure out kitchen timing. Wouldn’t go back until I knew they were running smoothly. By the time we got back everything closing up. No dinner

    We had a wonderful dinner at 1892. It was our first time dining there. I had to call about 2 hours before our reservation to push it back (due to a work (hospital) emergency), and the staff was so very accommodating. Service was outstanding. Drinks were fabulous. Food was so delicious. Thank you!

    The food at this restaurant is phenomenal!!! From the filet raised just a few miles away to the Brown Butter Halibut to their unique appetizers, you will not find any better food in the Nashville area. We love this restaurant and always have an amazing meal when we eat here. Do not expect a "sit down, order your food, eat and go" type of meal. Eating at 1892 is an experience!! A wonderful experience at that.

    I will never return to 1892 again. My friend from out of state was visiting and we always enjoy going to 1892. Our waitress was adequate but not helpful. She gave us no information or did she ask us what we wanted in addition to our meal. She just acted like she didn’t want to be there. When we got our meal it was so salty that neither of us could eat it. I had salmon and my friend had scallops. The price had doubled from the last time we were there and we waited for an hour and a half to get our food. My Salmon was not edible. It was so salty I couldn’t eat it. It was almost like the chef was trying to hide something. My friend had scallops and she could at least scrape the top off and eat the scallops. Hers was salty and spicy but once the top layer was removed she could eat them. I was so disappointed. We told the waitress how awful our meals were and she nodded and we knew she wasn’t going to pass along our comments. I walked over to the table next to us who was a family of 5 and they said theirs were extremely salty as well. After we told Our waitress Taylor never once did she say, I’m so sorry or can we offer you a dessert or would you like to see a manager or talk to the chef. She just stayed away from us until it was time to pay the bill. I won’t be back.

    We were the first customers at 5 pm. While service was pleasant, it took FOREVER to get our food. As we were trying out the place as first time customers, we only ordered entrees, but the wait was around 45 minutes. The duck breast was absolutely delicious. The vegetables and sauce made it an incredibly excellent choice. The steak frites was average. As for seating comfort: the chairs were wood and hard and not that comfortable. The tables has sides to them, so if you have long legs, it was difficult to eat near the table, as the tables rubbed the tops of your legs.

    Halibut was great, lamb not served at desired doneness and overly salted . Didn't have bread that day. The quantity was pretty good. If you are hungry and like raw salty lamb this is a great place to go.. I would go back, just because it a nice rustic place. Perhaps it was a rough day. I have had lunch in the past, that was great.

    The ever-changing menu was wonderful - everything from cocktails and wine to appetizers and entrees, to desserts was delicious! Our server Taylor was the best! She was friendly, attentive, helpful with suggestions. The setting was unique and cozy - a home built in 1892 turned into a great restaurant! We thoroughly enjoyed the entire evening!

    While the food was very good the service was slow. Our server had no suggestions for appetizers or main courses. She didn’t even ask if we’d like to start with an appetizer. We waited quite a while for our food to arrive. With the exception of the steak frites portions were very small. The restaurant wasn’t crowded. All in all it was a disappointment. -

    I am struggling to find the perfect words to describe our experience. The meal was creative and delicious. The grilled romaine salad was tasty and plenty enough for two people to share. We ordered scallops and acorn squash as our entrees. Both dishes were exceptional. Hats off to the chef for creating a tantalizing adventure for our taste buds! Our table was on the porch which meant that you are out of sight for the service staff. So, when we needed a drink refill or additional items, we had to be patient to wait for our server to check on us. But, the cozy privacy was definitely a bonus. It is a good place to enjoy the sights and sounds of Leipers Fork on a quiet summertime evening.

    The menu is really creative and the food was delicious. Not sure how long they’ve been open but they have some difficulty managing reservations timely. They were however very apologetic and bought our first round of drinks to make up for the wait. We will definitely be back.
