The food was just so-so, nothing to brag about.
Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Staff was exceptionally nice and pleasant. Would definitely go again!
Great atmosphere, friendly service, and great food
Loved this place! Food was amazing, service was outstanding, spacing of the tables was better than most places we have been to since restaurants have opened back up. Recommended it to a friend from the table! We will definitely be back!
Excellent meal, fantastic drinks and great atmosphere!!
The food was great but the service was outstanding
Amazing meal and wonderful service! Our server was fabulous and we will be back again for sure!
Was wonderful. Great service. Was able to social distance in a table in the back.
Not going back
Deacon's was a wonderful choice for a group of six. The food was wonderful and the staff was amazing!
Dinner with our grandson was excellent with a knowledgeable and pleasant waitress and delicious food.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your dinner and time with your grandson. We look forward to serving you in the future.
Deacon's New South is the perfect place for a special occasion. It has a great atmosphere and delicious food. Would definitely recommend!
The food and atmosphere were great!! Be sure to eat a snack or plan to get an appetizer because food takes a while to get to the table. Highly recommend the pork shank!!
Very professional an the food was amazing.
Food was amazing!
We so thank you for your review and look forward to your next visit.
We ate outside on the balcony. There were several high points. The Old Fashions are delicious. We really enjoyed the deviled egg appetizer. I loved the diver scallops for dinner and the sorghum crepe brûlée for dessert.
I had the bone-in filet and it was absolutely the best steak I can remember. We sat at the window next to the grille station and part of the great flavor was expected as each steak is well seasoned...something other places tend to miss.
Outstanding food and service. The cost of the meal was okay. I will return.
Excellent food and impeccable service!
Always a great dining experience at Deacons New South. Come and enjoy.
We so thank you for your review and look forward to your next visit.
This restaurant is a gem in the middle of downtown Nashville doing incredible things with southern food! All of the pickled vegetables give new meaning to vegetables; I never knew pickled collards could taste so good. The red snapper is to likable along with creamy grits. The wine selection is superb and all at reasonable prices. Deacons New South is among the top new southern cuisine restaurants in the Charleston-Atlanta-Birmingham-Nashville rectangle.
Wow!! We could not have written a nicer review about ourselves. Many thanks and we look forward to your next visit.
Love it!! We will be back! Great food, Great Atmosphere, Great Location!
Overall it was a great meal, and the service was spectacular! The biggest disappointment was the portion sizes for the price. While the short rib was delicious, it only allowed our table one bite per person. The lobster was also small based off the price.
Need to Validate parking for Guest.
Deacon's New South was an excellent choice. Their half-bird chicken with the hot seasoning was incredible. I ordered a drink called "The Vaccine" and it might have been one of the best drinks I think I've ever had. Would highly recommend it.
Happy Anniversary and we are so pleased you enjoyed your meal. The Vaccine started as a playful bit and is now our most popular drink. We look forward to your next visit.
Made a reservation for 8 and we weren’t seated until 8:20. During this time, a large number of non mask wearing guests also entered the small waiting area waiting for their reservations, waving their masks around and denying COVID while we were all crammed together in the entryway with no where to go. Staff did not intervene to ask other patrons to wear their masks as is required. When we were finally seated, we waited for another 15 minutes before a waiter came by to ask if we had been helped. He was very gracious, but the restaurant was obviously unprepared for us. The meal was good, but not good enough to make up for being ignored. We will not be returning.
The food was absolutely amazing. Our waitress Yammy was very attentive and gave great wine recommendation.
The service was excellent. Our server was very personable and attentive. The deviled eggs tasted too much like pickle flavor. The bone in Ribeye lacked salt. The food was a bit cold and not excellent. We had a good experience, but the cost of the food did not match the quality.
My favorite restaurant. Great steaks, fantastic sides and attentive knowledgeable staff. Really a great experience every time.
We had a very mixed experience at Deacon’s. Our server was friendly and helpful throughout the meal and overall the food was very tasty... when it arrived. We had issues starting after the appetizers with it taking over 35/40 mins for our entrees to arrive. When they did, 2 out of 3 diner’s steaks were cooked to the wrong temperature (well done instead of med. rare) and all but inedible. They replaced them, but it took another 15/20 mins were we could just eat sides.
We then ordered dessert and the topping was burnt... not inedible but not great.
After we paid we spoke to manager who asked if we were locals....it was clear they had a mindset that tourist customers don’t come back so why bother. After sharing were were local, they offered to make it right next time... no mention to address the multiple issues we experienced this trip.
This was an expensive meal and the experience just didn’t match the price point.
Solid restaurant but was expecting a little more. Steaks were tasty but not juicy or warm. Appetizers were very good. Cocktails average. Lower to mid-level wine in my opinion.
We had been told it was amazing..however we waited over an hour and a half for over cooked steak and cold sides...the manager was requested & knew it was bad..the only resolve was taking steak off our tab, the waitress was good but bc of the temp of food and overcooked steak we are very familiar with other up scale places that we will return to..not here. Just a heads up. And I never post reviews bc I know things happen but this was unacceptable in every way.
Sarita was great! Food was excellent.
Thank you for your 5 star rating and we hope to see you soon!
Food was awful. Service and ambiance were great.
Several of the oysters were frozen. The waiter did attempt to replace but same result. Steak was fantastic but appetizers fell short of other places.
Everything was good other then the service. There was noticeable lag time between when we got our drinks, and anything we asked for.
We had a great meal with friends! Food and atmosphere were great
I Had A Great Experience While Dining Here. Food Was Pricey But Worth Every Penny, The Chef Cooked Everything To Perfection. Service Was On Point And Very Polite, Made Me And My Date Feel Comfortable During Our Time There. Definitely Will Not Be The Last Time I Eat Here.
We so loved reading your review and glad you enjoyed your experience. We look forward to your next visit.
Our waiter Matt was remarkable! He was very generous and efficient.
Thank you for joining us! We are so glad you enjoyed everything, especially Matt. We look forward to seeing you soon.
