We tried several things on the menu and all were delicious. The flatbreads were actually pizzas and the eggplant was delicious. The Brussels, the truffle Mac and the risotto balls were all great.

We brought a large group and our server was excellent. We enjoyed the food tremendously as well. We shared appetizers as a table (the smashed beets & tahini = 100!), followed by individual entrees and sides for the table. Unfortunately, our sides were brought out after we had almost finished our entrees. Service timing can be challenging with large groups, but the delay in serving the sides sides was a little too much.

We ate at the resto prior to the sold-out John Hiatt concert. We thought eating at the restaurant would be a better experience than in the concert hall.I think all the servers were dedicated to the concert hall, since I had to flag down the one resto server multiple times. The food was stellar, but cold—each and every dish.I was excited to see that several apps I wanted to try were on the half-price happy hour menu, as was the wine I wanted to try. When the bill came, all at full price (Logan was nice about fixing the bill, but had to get his attention.) The gentleman dining next to us said that usually, service in the restaurant was “normal. Not great, but normal.” The flip-side— Great service in the concert hall, definitely the A-Team. I just prefer not to have dinner where it is super noisy and crowded. If the food had been warm, oh man, yum!

Came for my bachelorette. Sunday, it was raining and the place was empty. We were seated in an awesome private room where we were able to play our own music and the ambiance was great. The food was good but nothing to rave about for the price. The quinoa salad had barely any quinoa or taste and the burrata was great just very small for sharing. We would loved to have been there for another seating besides brunch because the other menus looked delish. Would come back here maybe not just time we did!!

I went with a large party to City Winery for a birthday event. The service was horrible. They took forever, to take our orders, food came late, and they messed up several checks. I do not recommend it!

Poor service: server disappeared. Did not check to see how our food was. No offer to get more drinks. Not friendly. Food runner brought main courses before salad was finished. When brought to runners attention, he shrugged and put food on table anyway.

Extremely loud. Very poor acoustics; restaurant needs to buffer walls. Very difficult to make table conversation.

There was no one in the restaurant but us really. The service was super slow. Our reservation was for 9pm and some of us didn’t have our drinks until 10pm. Honestly, it was pretty brutal. Had high hopes and definitely won’t be coming back or recommending.

The table we were seated at was located beside 3 doors and a cash register. We had made date night reservations and it wasn’t crowded. We were very disappointed with where we were seated which was uncomfortably close to the couple next to us. The food was not so unique or flavorful that it warranted the price charged. There was nothing about our experience that would entice us to return.

Sat outside on the patio. A little loud for talking but enjoyed it anyway. Lots of wine to choose from. Food was very good. Service was friendly if not a little mixed up sometimes. Everyone in our party liked their food. My husband and I had the trout. Brussel sprouts a must but one order will feed at least 4 people. Would come back for sure. Fun atmosphere.

First visit to Nashville, booked a table at City Winery for a friend's dinner. Server was attentive and excellent, the food was phenomenal, and the wine list impressive! We had hoped to catch the bluegrass show after dinner, but it was nearly over by the time we finished dinner. Regardless, was an excellent experience overall and the filet that my friend had was incredible. Cooked perfectly and the side dishes were wonderful. 10/10!

The music was horrible AND loud. We couldn’t have a conversation without raising our voices and we were at the opposite end of the room.
The food was plain, bland, and worse, not prepared as we had asked. The coffee was bitter. No amount of cream could help it.
The only bright spot was our server, Natalie, who did her best to bring some humor to a bad experience
Not a place we will return to nor recommend.
