It was ok. Felt expensive for the quality. Cool spot but one of those places you pay for the ambiance. Out of 4 of us none of us really liked our food. It was fine but nothing exciting. When they brought me the wrong meal they never took it off the bill either which is pretty standard to do. They brought me the correct thing but since I had to wait for 20 more minutes for my food while everyone else ate I don’t think I should’ve had to pay for the meal. Again, it was fine. But I wouldn’t go back when there are so many better options in the city

We had just eloped and had photos and were extremely exhausted from the 95 degree weather! We had reservations to celebrate and we werent too dressed up anymore but it was perfect. Whether you are dressed up or down the atmosphere worked! The staff was extremely welcoming and friendly! The hostess and bartender gave us champagne and free dessert to celebrate and our server,Adam, did an amazing job! We come everytime we are in Nashville and will continue!

This place has a lot of potential, however, it was one of the worst dining experiences I have ever encountered. We had reservations and got seated promptly - within 15 mins we ordered our food. The waiter came by about 45 mins after placing our order saying the kitchen is moving slow and our order is about to be put through, which had our whole group confused. Apparently there was another event that they poorly managed and didn’t realize how big it would get causing everything to be extremely slow. Had we known about this ahead of time, we would have gone elsewhere.

We asked the waiter if we could get some bread (at this point it has been about an hour and a half since we ordered food) the waiter said he would bring some out and he never did. We asked him 3 different times about the bread and he kept saying he will get some. I ordered the shareable avocado toast, which was good but extremely overpriced for one small piece of toast and one egg. Not sure how anyone could shared that. Our food was all a little cold.

We ended up waiting 2 hours for our food and had just an overall horrible experience. I don’t live in Nashville, but if I ever visit again, I will not be returning to this place

City Winery Nashville Barrel Room Restaurant & Wine Bar is one of my wife's and my very favorite places to celebrate special occasions - in this instance, our 36th wedding anniversary! Our server, Kimberly, was absolutely FABULOUS, and we would go out of our way to request her! The only problem had to do with an apparent backlog in the kitchen, resulting in over an hour wait for our food. Ordinarily we wouldn't have minded, but we also had tickets to the Over the Rhine show at 8:00, and since our food didn't arrive until 7:35 (we had 6:15 reservations), we obviously weren't really able to enjoy our dinner. Again, I realize this was outside of Kimberly's control, but I left almost half my dinner on my plate because of the delay. All of this being said, it would not in any way, shape, or form dissuade me/us from returning or giving CWNBRR&WB our highest rating! Thank you for listening and caring, Scott and Dee Geis

Service was fair. We had an appetizer and 2 entrees and none were good. The were edible but nothing more. Very disappointed. The app was mac and cheese with very little cheese and flavor. My chicken was over cooked and tough and my friends pasta had no flavor (it looked and tasted like buttered noodles). Both of our entrees were missing or had substituted ingredients named on the menu.

This is a very nice restaurant with appealing inside ambience and decor. it is hard to say about the overall food quality as I have dined there only once, and my order was not to my taste. The waitress recommended my order when I asked her what was popular on the menu, but it was not totally her fault. There is always risk in making a recommendation to someone you don't know. To be fair, the food was not great but not too bad, either. For that reason, I am willing to give it one more try next time.

We went to city winery for a father's day brunch. The staff was friendly, didn't bother us too much or too little. We ordered the create your own mimosa, which was a big hit. It was enough for the 5 of us to get a glass and then some. The food was good, nothing extraordinary but not bad and very filling. I would definitely go back. The atmosphere and drinks made for a fun afternoon.

The food was just average and I was expecting a lot more. They were out of several of the wine choices. It is called City Winery, right? We ordered the cheese platter for appetizers and there was nothing noteworthy on the platter: Three hunks of cheese, nuts, jams and toasted bread. I can whip that up at my house in 5 minutes for guests. I had the shrimp and grits for dinner and hubby had the burger. They were both very average. If you go for the drinks and the show, I see the appeal, otherwise, I will pass on the food.

We only ordered a cheese and meat charcuterie board and a margherita pizza. The meat and cheeses were not great quality and the pizza had no flavor. The wines were also disappointing. The music venue is good, but I would eat somewhere else before going to the winery.
