    The food was upscale bar food. The front of the bar with the band is very loud, but I would expect most people sitting there enjoy that. We had reservation in the back area and the bartender and managers on staff were very accommodating for a party of 8. It was good to watch football and enjoy our meal at the same time. I would go there again.

    We were the only table being served for dinner. They were out of multiple food items on the menu and various beer and liquor items, but we weren't told until after the order was placed. When asked what the food sub items would be were told the chef would just pick and we couldn't pick. After asking to pick, when the food was actually delivered the items they were supposedly out of were delivered.

    Gher service was great from the start. We were escorted through the bar all the way to our table in the back. We pretty much had the whole place to ourselves gave us a private feel it was awesome. Food was great and didnt take to long. Drinks were strong and we had a great time!

    This was a complete disappointment. The food was just OK and all the drinks were served in plastic cups. Absolutely not a fine dining experience or an adequate rooftop dining experience. If you were looking for an enjoyable and special occasion dinner with a great view, I would choose a different restaurant.

    We searched for rooftops that were not all sold out long before our visit. Our reservation was actually for the restaurant inside so misleading. We ended up being early and were able to go to the rooftop. The view was horrid. It was dirty and obstructed. The volume of the music made it so you couldn’t even think and the food was inedible. The service was awful. Would not recommend.

    Made a reservation, was sent to 4 different places to check in as their is no host and nobody seems to know where you check in. After 1/2 hour trying to check in for our reservation with no luck finally sat an empty table and waited another 10min for anybody to acknowledge us. Menu is minimal.

    Made a reservation but when we came to the restaurant no one knew how to help us. There was no hostess or signs indicating where to go. A security guard had to go find someone to ask, only to come back and point at the back of the venue and tell us to make our way back there. I don’t understand taking reservations if there is no system in place to protect or monitor them. If we weren’t there at the start of service I doubt a table would’ve been saved for us. Server was nice but ran around like a chicken with its head cut off and wasn’t very attentive. We were the first table of the night. Food was generic bar food, nothing spectacular and seemed frozen/canned. We were a bachelorette party and the bride of the group ordered nachos which were a mess. The chips looked like the left overs of a Tostitos bag and the cheese was pathetic. Instead of if being spread throughout, there were globs around the plate of barely warm queso. And I 100000% believe it was jarred Tostitos Queso cheese. Another girl found several hairs in her salad and the ingredients were not fresh. We ordered several drinks from their specialty cocktails list and they were unbalanced. The flavors had a watered down taste. Overall a huge disappointment but if you want cheap bar food so you can keep drinking then here’s your spot.

    I am not sure why this restaurant is on open table. When we arrived, there was no one there to ask about our reservation. No one greeted us at all. We roamed around and finally stopped a server and asked where we should sit. He told us to sit wherever we wanted. We lucked into an open table. I usually try not to complain if I don’t like the food, but my frustration of making a useless reservation probably amplified the fact that the food was not good. There was no flavor to anything. I actually think they forgot to put cheese in the Mac and cheese at all. Idk if we came on a bad night or what.

    We had 8:15 dinner reservations for 8 people. When we arrived, all of the large tables were full so they put two booths together for us until a more comfortable table became available. The manager knew the booth set up was awkward so bought us a round of shots to make up for it. The restaurant reservations are sat in the back of Famous Nashville, it was basically a different restaurant. We were there on a Friday night and that area had karaoke, not live music, which we weren’t expecting. We were happy to get out of the rain, have a place to sit down and eat! The service was good and the karaoke ended up being a lot of fun!

    According to their website you need a reservation and have to secure it with a credit card, making you think that this is a hopping place. Well, no. We walked right in, there were about 6 other people in the cavernous space. We ordered drinks and took a while to look at the menu. When we finally ordered, we were told they had no chicken of any kind. So we said ok we’ll try some nachos. Sorry, the very nice server said, we’re out of cheese too. So basically that leaves a plain burger as your only choice. We went elsewhere to eat.

    We ate here for "brunch" on a Saturday morning. We had reservations at 10:00AM but were not let in the restaurant until 10:20AM (the restaurant opens at 10 AM). We were the second table sat (party of 8) and watched table after table get food and drinks before we received our drinks (not to mention our first drink order was forgotten about). Seemed to only have one worker opening the place until a few others trickled in but he did his best with the busy circumstances. It was just frustrating to have a reservation and feel like we were just an inconvenience in the place. The food was not warm or hot and small portions. However, the morning music was great and atmosphere was fun. The BloodyMary was delicious but if you are looking for a brunch spot and/or just an early meal, this is not the place. Good for some morning/midday cocktails with entertainment.

    We had reservations for brunch. Although I don’t know why. We waited 10 minutes for a hostess to seat us to be told by the bartender there was no hostess and to sit where we could find a seat. The music was too loud downstairs, not to mention this was more of a bar atmosphere(sticky floors and tables) so we went upstairs to the rooftop to find a seat. We found a waiter that helped drag two tables together for our party of 6. We sat. The rooftop bar/restaurant was enclosed with plastic and the heaters were on. It was a sunny 63 degree day. This made it so hot it was unbearable. We walked out towards the balcony to get some air, thinking the waiter was bringing us waters. 5 minutes later we returned to our table to find others seated there. It was just as well, because it was so hot we couldn’t have withstood it to eat. We left. Very unorganized and chaotic. Don’t go thinking you’re in for a nice brunch.

    I can't really review the food as we booked a table for dinner on Saturday night and when we arrived, they told us the kitchen was closed. We didn't even have a table reserved. So, I'm not sure why we were even allowed to reserve a table. This place has a great roof deck and is right downtown, if that is what you are looking for.

    We had a great table up front. Live music playing (reservation 10:45 A.M) The menu looked great, everyone loved Emma’s waffles. The burger was great, but the biscuits and gravy were just okay. The fresh fruit bowl was just canned pineapple. That’s it. They charge for water, as they bring you a bottle when you ask. The check situation is very weird. They do not let you split up the bill individually (we had 7) so we had to kind of add it all up and split on two cars. Very frustrating.
