    Well…… service great, ambiance great. Ordered the Tomahawk!!! Very fatty and everyone was disappointed. The fish was awesome as was the filet but the 4 that shared the tomahawk very sad. Sides were great. Love the place. Will be back often but avoid the tomahawk

    Excellent food-- the best I have had in the Nashville area in the last few years. Service was just right-- attentive but not hovering, and our server spaced our courses out perfectly. The charred oysters, tomato salad and the salmon were perfect! Dessert was good, too.

    The food was fair. Steak tough, shrimp and scallops a bit on the salty side, cheese completely obscure the taste of the baked oysters. The service was great. Wife's steak was so tough she could hardly chew it and, to their credit, management removed the price of that from the check. Fair enough. In spite of the shortcomings I would give this place another go.

    This was a very nice night and an appropriate choice for our anniversary dinner - terrific oyster appetizer, wedge salad was plenty to split between the two, and my wife had a tasty fresh halibut selection for the seafood choice of the evening. My Bone-in ribeye was well seasoned and cooked to order … and we split a tasty “ice cream cake” dessert advertised as carrot cake but mostly drenched I. Ice cream, whipped cream, and caramel sauce. Price was reasonable but I would not say it was a “great value.” As far as ambiance, I am 6’5” and we sat upstairs where there were only 4 tables, — and a ceiling of about six feet.

    Our food was terrific— halibut and steak. The cocktails were outstanding! It’s not a place for a quiet, private dinner since it’s quite open with tables close together. We were very pleased to find a new favorite spot in Franklin.

    This was our first visit to Cork and Cow in Franklin. The atmosphere is excellent and I would say upscale comfortable. Our server was Jason and he is absolutely great at his job. Personable and prompt are his talents and his help in menu questions was above and beyond. We both had steak a filet and the bone in ribeye. We both agreed that we have never had a better steak anywhere! The Crème brûlée was superb. We will come again and highly recommend this restaurant.

    First time dining there. My wife said her bone in ribeye was a little salty. I like a well salted steak, but hers was a little too much. Other than that everything else was great. Calamari was awesome. Mac and cheese was probably in the top 2 I have ever had. Our waitress, Arielle, was unbelievable. So helpful, courteous, friendly, professional and informative. She definitely made our visit over the top!

    We went to C&C for our 15th anniversary, and they paid attention to our special request for the best seat in the house! Our server Josh gave us the most attention, gave us perfect recommendations, and made us feel very special. Even gave us desert on the house to celebrate! There wasn’t a thing I could complain about, we are going again for drinks tonight!

    Excellent waitress. Steak was overdone M Vs MR. Gnocci was very salty. They remedied both without question and compd our side dish. Crete Brûlée was outstanding. Also compd because if a birthday. Not raucous noisy but definitely not an intimate spot.

    The food was great! The calamari was not much for what you pay but tasted very good. The only downside to eating upstairs is you have to duck down to walk… so don’t wear heels!

    I expected this to be one of the best restaurants in TN since Red Pony blew me away. Honestly I wish I didn’t go since the food was mediocre and the bill was way higher than called for.

    This was hands down the best dining experience we’ve had in the area. The food was absolutely delicious. But more than that, the service was incredible. Our server was amazing and attentive. And all of the staff made this feel like an experience, rather than just a meal out. It was a wonderful experience.
