All around excellent! The food was very tasty, and we were able to hold a conversation without have to talk over any loud music or noise. Great atmosphere!

We really enjoyed the cocktail menu and the food. Fun environment. Our server wasn’t the friendliest at first but she came around. That’s the only complaint I have. Everything else was great!

Easy for us to get seated immediately even with a party of 5. I loved they had both brunch and dinner food options to choose from.

I enjoyed our experience there very much. The live music did not start until more than 30 minutes after than advertised, but other than that, it was great.

Overall the food was great!

The mimosas were good but there was a catch -- $12.00 per bottle of champagne or $10.00 if every at the table orders a bottle, then you have to pay extra for juice. I think it was $4 for a VERY small amount of juice to make your mimosas....it came out to being about $14.00 per bottle.

I'm guessing the rent in the gulch is high, so milking every penny out of the mimosas specials.

Not what we expected based on the website. This place would be good for a few drinks after work, but definitely not the spot to take your wife for a nice dinner. Of the restaurant choices in Nashville that are considered higher end, this place doesn’t make the cut. Entrees are very expensive, but food quality just isn’t there. The hostess was rude and uninviting, but our waiter was exceptional. Parking is very convenient, and within feet of the restaurant.

Not sure what was shaking the ceiling at the booth nearest the street, but there were very loud banging sounds on a few occasions, with lights swaying. Service was okay and food was okay. Made a great Old Fashion, for sure. But, as for the food...the flat bread we had was just okay. Next I found some plastic in my main dish, but didn't make a big deal over it. Then once I tasted my main course, it was bland and definitely not scampi, that's for sure. No lemon, no parsley...barely any garlic or butter....pretty disappointing. Desert wasn't bad. However, our waiter was no where to be found after dropping off checks. We waited to pay our checks for 20 minutes. Bartender had to come over and take care of it. Staff were just cutting up in an area where guests could see them doing so. I'm not opposed to having fun at work, and have worked both sides of the "house"...there are other places in the restaurant to go goof off or blow off some steam in where guest aren't being exposed to it. Place probably won't last if this is how it's run.

There were only 4 other tables, a rainy evening... we had a party of 5. Food was mediocre at best (we ordered a couple dishes the server recommended). Service was almost non existent. We waited 14 min for our check (again, there were 4 tables in the whole restaurant that had been sat). Very disappointing... the “hot chicken” served with the French toast was bland and poorly cooked. Very poor meal in the Gulch... we went to see a Cirque show afterward at Bridgestone. This should have been a nice evening, but was sadly “off” because of a poor dining experience. Menu looked awesome on Open Table, and venue was great... but sadly the kitchen and the waiter did not live up to expectations.

Service was great and it wasn't loud at all - very refreshing, especially for a Saturday night. We were seated right away and had salads and apps on the table within 15 minutes of being seated!

Go here! It’s worth it. The hot chicken and French toast is sooooo good! Everyone at the table got the hot chicken and Mac and cheese and were upset after tasting mine. My husband and I like trying new restaurants but this one has just moved up high on the list of ones to return to.

Are here while in Nashville. I thought the honey chicken appetizer was phenomenal. I had jerk chicken (the party had 4 orders) for an entree and it was good just not great. The table gave good reviews to the hot honey chicken Mac.

Our waiter gave poor service and had an attitude (didn’t even give us his name) BUT the food was divine!! The turkey pear croissant was delicious. I got a side salad with it which was huge! Great value for food.

We had dinner reservations through OpenTable for City Fire on News Years Eve. The restaurant was very nice, great atmosphere and the wait staff was very attentive. The food was good and everyone enjoyed what they ordered (spaghetti, country fried steak, chicken Parmesan and burritos). It was easy to find and the adjacent parking garage was very convenient to find parking. Would eat there again when in Nashville.

They've taken so many of the great things off the menu (cocktails too)..the 1 thing that kept me going was the shrimp and grits, that's not even tasty anymore.
