It's been many years since we've been to Cabana and I was sorry to see that the restaurant hadn't spruced up/cleaned up in that time. The food was good, Except 3 of us ordered the Pork Chop and they ran out. It was a Saturday night and that just seems like REALLY poor planning by the kitchen staff. I always think... Just send someone to grocery/Costco for goodness sake... JOSH was a GREAT server but it was obvious that he was over seated. But he kept up the best he could and did an excellent job. It's sad to see it's become a favorite venue for buses and Batchelorette parties b/c that's a total turn off to us locals.

We had 7:45 reservations on New Year's Eve. We got in right away and were quickly served our drinks and appetizers. We had the oysters (delicious), fritters (very good) and the lobster mac and cheese (very small portion - not enough to share with 4 people). Unfortunately, the kitchen got backed up and dinner too a long time to come out. There were a lot of big parties there but the place should be used to handling big groups since their cabanas seat a large number of people. Overall, I would recommend, just not on a busy night!

I made the reservation for my daughter and her friends some were from out of town. I made the reservation early so it wouldn’t interfere with the late New Year’s Eve crowd. I think the wait staff was rude due to their ages 18-19). These girls are so respectful and kind. Since I paid for the dinner I did appreciate this type of treatment to the girls. I have dined at Cabana over the years but now will not be very hesitant about future reservations.

Lobster Bisque was good but served almost cold. No Espresso drinks are offered, just regular coffee. - Other than that the meal and the service were excellent.

We were very disappointed. We heard our son order a kids pizza and were charged for an adult. We were also charged for the cake I brought in after calling to be sure it would be ok to bring. I also had to get candles from the bar for our tables a ambience.

Cabana is a very nice, intimate space for a romantic dinner. It also has a larger space for networking and large gatherings. The ambience was great, the service was wonderful, and the food was amazing! I highly recommend this place for a special occasion dinner.

This was the first time we had dined here other than a private party we had gone to. Everyone was great from the minute we walked in the door, and we had brought our parents who were here from out of town and was a fun experience, and food was great. Our server, Pickles, was awesome.

went here based on recommendation of our waiter at another restaurant. We were pleased to be given a cabana without asking for it. The food was very good. I have two knocks for this restaurant. First, the waiter made no less than five (5) visits to our table asking if we were ready to place our entree' orders. We were catching up with old friends and the interruption was quite annoying. The other knock is the small gnats (fruit?) that were hovering around our table. Reminded me of the ones you sometimes see around fruit. the waiter made no comment as we were swatting them in front of him.

This restaurant may be better left to the bachelorette crowd.

It was good food, but the portions were a lot. The fry appetizer was okay - tons of fries but they weren’t amazing. As for entrees they were pretty good. Both my date and I decided not to take the leftovers. They were not bad at all, but nothing to take home and eat again...

Always loved cabana, but miss the meatloaf that used to be on the menu. Three of us got trout and it was way too salty.

This place is not romantic at all--it's a glorified sports bar with TVs everywhere and thin curtains offering no privacy. The menu is not creative and the food was decent.

Way over priced for mediocre food. Our food came out barely warm and almost cold. It was bland and we had to add table salt to everything. My husband ordered and expensive filet mignon and the steak had no flavor. If you want a good meal for your price go somewhere else.

We had a group of 9 female administrative assistants, and admittedly we can be a handful. Our server remained calm and kind. Everything we had was delicious. All around a great time, and I highly recommend Cabana!

We were meeting with some friends at Cabana. Unfortunately, we were not aware that Cabana is the bacholette capital of Nashville. From the time we got there till we left, from 3 different parties there was excessive noise, loud singing, just LOUD! We could not have a conversation without yelling everything and we were told that was a slow day! Food was decent, menu was over priced. A room should be made available to large parties because the noise level caused us to leave much sooner than we normally would have. We just wanted to eat and get out. We most liky will not be back. We didnt seem like the only annoyed people in the place because of the noise level. On a plus, our server was AWESOME! Drinks were good, just overpriced.

Food was great, service was also great, and I love the private booths that you can close the curtains on for more privacy. My only complaint (which the restaurant can't control) was the very loud and obnoxious bachelorette party sitting nearby. My husband and I practically had to scream to hear each other. NOT what you go to this restaurant for.

Have eaten here for the past 8 years and always think of it as a go to for my wife and I. Although, Saturday the services seemed slow and our waitress was preoccupied by something else and it was not busy at all.

Our food was fantastic, the chef even came out to make sure my friends meal was to her liking. He made a vegan meal for her! Her meal was not even on the menu! Way to go above and beyond. Thank you

The restaurant was out of two daily specials, but we weren’t notified until after we placed the order. The service was sub-par, especially considering there were few guests in the restaurant.

The food was ok but nothing too incredible. I really liked the veggies that came with my duck but my husband's steak was not cooked well and didn't have much flavor. All in all, I was satisfied with my food but not blown away by it. Also, the restaurant had an interesting atmosphere, with tables that could be relatively private but there was food under our table that we didn't order. Just not too impressed but our server was nice and gifted us a dessert since we had to send the filet back. Top marks for service!

Cabana was the perfect way to kick off my sister's Bachelorette party! We paid the minimum in order to get a "Cabana" and it was so worth it! We played our own music, closed the curtains, and it was like we were having our own private party! Not to mention, our server was incredible and such a fun addition to our night!

Everything we ordered was outstanding. I am from the South, and this was like eating a home-cooked meal prepared by the best cooks I ever knew. All four of us cleaned our plates. Seriously. Not a drop of gravy or a crumb remained.

Josh was freaking amazing! He knew the menu well and was able to give wonderful recommendations. On top of that he interacted really well with everybody including my Father in Law that told derogatory jokes. The food was awesome except the green fried tomatoes were bad. Definitely will go again!

Reserved a cabana for a bachelorette party dinner.
Overall it did not meet our expectations. It is basically just a standard booth with a curtain.. definitely could use some updating.
Not to mention it was $300 cancellation fee. Definitely would recommend booking elsewhere.

We were all impressed with the atmosphere, and loved the cabana seating with private music. We could talk to everyone in our large group.
People were very excited about the menu and had a difficult time selecting their order.

We were disappointed by the lukewarm temperature of most of the food, however. Some of the food was delicious but others had negative feedback. For example, the tomato soup with goat cheese was so thick it was more of a pasta sauce. Our server was friendly but could have checked in to refill our drinks much sooner. I asked for a mocktail and instead of checking with the bartender he replied they couldn’t make one.

Very promising dining experience and with a few small tweaks could have been outstanding!
