I have been there several time for dinner and have an amazing experience. The food for dinner was fabulous!! I was excited to see Fin & Pearl served breakfast and assumed the food for breakfast would be as wonderful as dinner. The breakfast at Fin & Pearl was horrible. My first indication was that the restaurant was almost empty. My thought was that if the food was as good as dinner, why were there not more people in the restaurant.
In summary, we wanted to order French toast and after ordering was told there was no French toast for the day. We then ordered chicken and waffles. Our waffles were cold (not even warm), the syrup was cold and the 'chicken' included three of the thinnest/skinniest chicken strips I have ever seen! This is Nashville...chicken and waffles implies a piece of fried chicken and not chicken strips.
This was a very, very disappointing breakfast. I had a friend with me from out of town and was hoping to give her a great Nashville breakfast experience and we left the restaurant and agreed to try again at another location the next day before she boarded her plan home.
Fin & Pearl gets 5-stars for dinner and a very generous 1-star for breakfast.
The food was good overall, however it was very understaffed while I was there. My party and I had to wait approximately 15 minutes to be seated for my reservation although 75% of the restaurant was empty. Servers were very nice however the majority couldn't answer specific questions about the menu. We had to wait another 10 minutes after being seated to get our actual server.
Our experience was definitely underwhelming. We had a pre fixe menu that was priced at $75 per person. We order an additional 6 oysters as well as drinks. I will say the drink menu is fun and the drinks were tasty. Our server was knowledgeable and nice but our pre fixe just wasn’t that special. All of our seafood dishes lacked flavor, and I was really looking forward to coming for the seafood! Empty plates sat on the table for way to long. Plates from previous courses stayed on the table with others. It really wasn’t busy. And even if it was you’re paying for a service and experience. The hustle and eye for detail just wasn’t there. Maybe a lack of team work? Bussers would come to set up and clear tables for next service but wouldn’t acknowledge our empty plates. Our server was definitely nice, but for the price we wouldn’t come back.
We did a parents night out here with a group of four and could not have had a better time. The restaurant was moderately busy but the waitress spent a lot of time with us going through the menu and giving us recommendations. We especially enjoyed the poke and the jambalaya. In addition to the great service and good food, we really like that atmosphere.
Great brunch menu in the Gulch area. We liked the diversity of the food and it was very delicious.
A friendly staff added to the attractive atmosphere.
Was nice but want a ‘wow’ experience
We were there celebrating the holidays with my parents. We had a great time with good food and the waitstaff were knowledgeable and friendly.
Third time visiting and each time has been excellent. We had a fantastic server and manager stopped by to check in us as well.
Unfortunately the food was average. I ordered the Sea Bass and sent it back as it was very tough :/ Had the oysters as an appetizer and just ok too. The service was wonderful, but I will not be back.
The food was excellent except that the fish (special of the day) was over-cooked for one of our entrees. We declined their offer of a replacement, so they provided a free dessert. Servers were over-attentive, asking us for dessert orders before one of us was finished with the entree.
