    I will be back. The appetizers, entree’s and sides are great but I’m not a fan of the steak I got, KC was medium well to medium rare due to it being so thick. I’ll need to try another option before I take this rating from 4 stars to 5 stars.

    From the bread to the Spumoni experience, everything was great! The only thing I would not recommend is the Snapper. I broke my own rule about never ordering fish at a steakhouse. It tasted like boiled fish, meaning flavored water. If you do not really like fish, you may love it. Winner for BEST salad (Farmer’s) at a steakhouse, though!

    My boyfriend and I had the most amazing evening. Our server was in training and she was phenomenal!! She had wonderful recommendations and was attentive all evening. The shrimp were stellar, rolls were to die for and the steak was out of this world. It was my boyfriends birthday and they even brought out a gelato with a candle in it. A beautiful evening!!

    Our dinner reservation was for 6 pm. We left the restaurant at 9:30 pm. There is absolutely no reason our dinner should have taken 3.5 hours. We ordered drinks, appetizers, salad, main courses, and dessert. We waited almost an hour between salads and main courses. We had to send one steak back for being overcooked. We also received the wrong drinks at the end of the meal. The food was very good and our server was delightful, but I think the kitchen was struggling. The pace of our courses was terrible.

    Ambience is very casual and very loud. It must be a generational thing, I don't like shouting across the table to have a conversation. The food is good and our waiter was very helpful (especially when we could hear him). I felt the prices were high, but in fairness to the restaurant, that seems to be happening everywhere. Carne Mare has a nice location in the heart of one of the most popular parts of Nashville. High energy (loud), lots of patrons and good food....it's not a bad choice if you are in the Gulch neighborhood.

    We loved the food and service. We felt that the restaurant was too loud for us and hope they add some acoustics to soften the ambient noise. Besides that we loved the experience and will return.

    This restaurant could be sensational. Presentation of main courses, was not very exciting. Side dishes were just at room temperature. We all concluded that the restaurant was just a nice Hotel restaurant. A little more attention from mgmt. might have added a little extra value. They could be great someday.

    As of lately, I’m always disappointed when establishments choose to only have unisex bathrooms. I will not participate in bringing female colleagues, my wife, or my daughters to places that make this choice…..they don’t enjoy using a facility after a bunch of men with bad aim. Get a clue!!

    Great food. Great service. Very loud. Hard surfaces everywhere seem to amplify the noise level. Prior to 8:30 pm, the dining room is mostly tourists and families with small children, so it’s very loud. Also, very bright with the sun pouring in the windows. The mood shifts about 8:30 pm. Quieter and more able to have a conversation. At night, once the sun is no longer pouring in and you can enjoy the candle light, the interior is beautiful. I recommend you go after 8:30 to make the most of the experience given the price point.

    Lobster was over cooked and chewy. Oysters , spicy crab and salad served at same time. When we mentioned lobster overcooked the waiter said nothing. For the restaurant and the prices we expected more. The positive Veal was unique and outstanding Deserts were unique and delish Service was friendly

    Save your money! Overpriced….service was mediocre, no menu presentation, spent over $300 for two guests, waited over 20 minutes to get our dinner plates cleared. When I’m paying prime prices, I expect prime service. My husband ordered the prime rib and it was no way 16 ounces. Too many options in this town, take your business elsewhere. Will not return.
