My group went while we were in Nashville for a bachelorette weekend! Different than other restaurants and well worth it! Food and atmosphere were great!

Bad burger, stale bun. Louder than bars on Broadway.

Dining area was cold and drafty. My date needed to wear a coat the entire time. This kept is from relaxing to potential.

My girlfriend and I went here for our date and we both agreed that it was a great place to go. We loved our food, our server was well accommodating, nice, and always asked us if we needed anything. The food came out quick, had quality and was delicious. As for the pricing, I’d say it was decent for what we paid for. We’d definitely return for more.

See my picture for a great view.

Restaurant is overdue for a refresh. Food and Service were subpar. Not sure how restaurant managed to get a recommendation as romantic restaurant in Tennessee - be careful of the articles you read online- lesson learned.

The food was very good but our waiter was very rude. I have a very light appetite and typical do not eat a full meal, so I just ordered one of the appetizers for my meal, and he acted very snotty about it. His face gave away his superiority complex, and he did not deserve the tip I left. Maybe he was just having a bad night, but he really ruined my experience at this restaurant I was so excited to try.

Don’t bother. Food was mediocre at best. Very overpriced for what you got. Really disappointing, but my fault for overlooking all the other reviews that said the same.

We have gone to this place several times (see previous reviews). They were usually visits in the early evening. relatively pleasant and without incident. On this occasion it was late on a Saturday (10 pm). There were several parties with loud drunk patrons. I was insulted in Spanish (a language in which I am entirely fluent) on my way out by a group of drunken young women. When I confronted their rudeness they pushed and shoved. Management came to defuse the situation and qualified their behavior to me as "a group having a good time". It is obvious that this restaurant caters to people who overindulge in alcoholic beverage intake, probably breaching the obligation in their bartender's and restaurant's alcohol licensees to refuse alcohol sales to the obviously inebriated. I am 73 years old and never had an experience like this in my entire life. Take this into consideration if you ever plan to visit this place.

The food was pretty good and the service was good too. Just an average place - nothing special. I thought the Cabana concept was cool but definitely for a larger group. We just had 4 in our group.

We have reviewed the place before. Pretty good if you are not looking for an exceptional dining experience but need a quick dinner and have no time to cook. Service is very attentive and it was quick this time, as opposed to a previous opportunity

We met friends at Cabana for restaurant week. We all chose off of the restaurant week menu. Food took forever to arrive. Salad was below average. Entree somewhat good, but scallops needed more of a sear. Others liked their entrees. Desserts were average, nothing to write home about. They did however allow us to stay and enjoy our friends and didn't rush us at all. I've been to Cabana before and will go again. I think on this night they were just a bit off.

The food was fair in quality. The scallops were well prepared but the risotto was very poor. Our table mates liked the lamp chops. The mussels were less than average due to the sauce and cold when they came to the table.The waiter told us he was new but could not keep the order straight in spite of checking with us multiple times. Not sure why he did not write it down. That would not have been such a problem if he had not checked with us non-stop all night to the point of interrupting our conversation annoyingly. We all loved the atmosphere. Sitting in a cabana was outstanding; very private and we were able to hear one another which is rare in many restaurants. I would go back here and try different menu items because I liked the atmosphere so well.

The food was tasty but over-priced. Our server was too pushy and didn’t space out appetizers and entrees so they arrived at almost the same time.
