It was nice. A little too loud for older patrons and they were out of several items on the menu. What we had was really good though.

We went for brunch on Mother’s Day....they have no designated parking and do not offer a valet to start, which was awful because it was pouring rain.
We had to ask 2-3 times to be seated after our reservation time...not the hostesses fault, she was also in charge of phones and bussing tables.
They seated our party of 6 in a booth...the table is NOT big enough for 6 and can not hold the food. We were brought other people’s food twice before we got our actual food.
The music is WAY too loud...we could not carry on a conversation within our booth unless we were shouting...literally.
The waitress seemed disinterested at best...we had to flag her down multiple times. After they brought water she never offered other drinks besides alcohol, she was not helpful with the menu and offered no help other than showing the QR code.
We had family in from out of town and wanted to show them a nice Nashville brunch...this was not a good choice.
Dey caters to the hundreds of bachelorette parties and 21st birthdays that come to town.

Probably won’t go back, the food was just okay.
But they distract you by the ambience.

In town for Mother’s Day. Was recommended to come. First people in the restaurant but told we couldn’t get a booth. Asked how we could get a booth, was told the manager just simply chose where people would sit. I asked if we were first guests in the restaurant and since there were booths open could we have one. Said they had to check with manager who would have to rearrange what he created. After asking a manager was told we could but we would be allowed to have it until 11:30 since someone else reserved it at that time. Asked the manager how that process worked. He said you just have to ask for it....🤷🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️ The food was good but the service continued to be less than stellar for the look of the place. Disappointed nevertheless.

This place is definitely a cool type of vibe. If you want a younger feel with good hip hop music that makes you move, this place is up your alley. Great music, new school and old school. Great cocktails, I got the Mr Moore and it was outstanding. Great servers, they were all really attentive and sweet. Overall, good experience. We will recommend.

The music surpassed even club level decibels, and mid-meal the volume increased even more. Noone could hear each other and our complain to our server was completely ignored.

The interior is beautiful. Fun and cool place to take photos. However that is about as far as I would go with positive reviews. They were out of just about everything I tried to order. Our server was extremely slow and in attentive. The music was fun and upbeat but so loud you could barely hear anyone talk at your table.

Went on a Sunday Night they had hardly any food left. The waitress was great! The manager had no professionalism whatsoever. She took off the apps but still wasn’t impressed.

Music very loud, like club loud. Great for meeting friends there but not first time dates or getting to know someone, just to loud for intimate convo. Food & service was good and 10.00 bottle of champagne/OJ is a great deal. Would go again with my SO.

Waitress got our order wrong. We Didn’t have silverware when food was delivered to our table. We had reservations and they sat us at a table right under the speaker. The music was playing so loud we couldn’t hear each other. Waitress wasn’t very attentive.

I loved the vibe and had such high hopes. They were out of 2 of the things we came there for and then it was super expensive for mediocre food and service. I never write reviews but I really wanted it to be better :/

This is NOT the right place for dinner. The music was incredibly loud. We couldn’t even hear our waitress. We asked for the music to be turned down. Management said it couldn’t because its corporately run. After over 20 minutes of still not even receiving drinks. We got up and left.

Food was ok, the shishito peppers tasted like licking the inside of a dirty oven. The music was so loud that we literally had to yell our order into the waitress' ear. More like a club/bar with food and super expensive.
