Our waiter/bartender tried his best but was working alone for most of our visit. He was very friendly and made great cocktails but was really struggling to wait on the entire dining room solo. The appetizers were AMAZING - deviled eggs, and crab hush puppies. Divine. The ambiance was...hotel-ish. The main course...shoe leather steak. The other choice was salmon which was not bad. I think there was a third choice of a quinoa bowl, but that was it for main entrees. We were looking for a fancy night out, but due to Belmont graduation we were unable to make reservations within a 15 mile radius of Nashville, save for this place. Should have stayed in Hendersonville.

Food and drink menu was very limited. Lump meat crab balls were amazing. So called “Delmonico” ribeye was very below average and over priced.

Not very many food items to choose from if you’re planning to eat. Great drink selection, I would go back but just for a drink.

Went for Valentine’s Day. I had no trouble making the reservation. Was a bit confused by the wording on the special menu, as it suggested that some of the regular menu items were able to be used on the promotional menu.

It was nice abd quiet. The food was quite good. What I think was the manager stopped by the table to inquire as to our meal. I would recommend the place without hesitation.

Hostess and server were very friendly. Although we were the only table there it did take a long time for our food. The hot chicken sandwich was great and the quinoa bowl it was actually really good and a nice vegetarian option.

It was nice but be aware it is in the lobby of a hotel not a stand alone restaurant. We were very taken back by this key piece of info. The staff was nice . The drinks can not be substituted. Very close to the Vandy stadium and the Parthenon.
