    Wonderful experience … we were seated in the back, near kitchen and wood burning stove. At first, this was fine.. but it became hot and humid after a while. I’d also appreciate bathrooms in the restaurant, and not located for hotel use.

    Gray & Dudley at 21cResponded todayThanks Leanne! We appreciate the sincere feedback and we hope you visit us again soon.

    I definitely give them an "A" for effort. The options were pretty limited for brunch..but you can tell they are making an effort to change their persona. The service couldn't be beat. It was amazing. The food that we did order was prepared perfectly and was very good. The Monte Cristo was great, the omelet was very good..the breatfast potatoes were perfect. The mimosas were delicious. The restaurant itself was spotless and fresh.

    Gray & Dudley at 21cResponded todayThank you Dpete, we appreciate the feedback and cant wait to see you again at G&D.

    The front desk, server and the guys at the front desk on the way out of hotel were super. The food was Ok. I would not return. first the menu , crispy Boudin is a rice ball with supposedly unseen nor tasted specks of blood sausage. Assuming this was the case - “crispy boudin “ as written on menu is completely misleading. The porkchop could have used more seasoning , but my issue is the cornmeal purée . It is not a purée - that I was so looking forward too - but rather a sauce . The desserts change nightly as explained by our server . They maybe need to develop a dessert menu and perfect the dessert . This night the lemon boudino - and it was very good. Recommend it -probably not but if asked we would describe as just that OK. Nice atmosphere , good service food Ok.

    Gray & Dudley at 21cResponded on July 25, 2022Thank you for the wonderful review. We love the feedback and cannot wait for you to give us another go. Cheers!

    Celebrated my daughter's 26th birthday at Gray & Dudley! The ambiance is so cool! Our server, Sabrina, was attentive & friendly, but not overbearing! The food was amazing! Especially the chicken with grits & mole!! WOW! I'm craving it right now! My daughter said the Lemon Budino was the best dessert she's ever had! Great cocktails & great service PLUS inclusive, which we appreciated! We will definitely be back!

    We were 21C Hotel guests and made the reservation because of the convenient location. I was an excellent experience. The bartender and restaurant staff were attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. The restaurant and bar were comfortable and nicely decorated. The handcrafted cocktails and wine were very good, dinner was excellent.

    One of the best meals I've had in Nashville! The staff was excellent, from the bartender to the waiter to the manager. We had great appetizers, pork belly, and steak, all perfect. Loved the carrots side as well. We also had some excellent wine recommendations. The location is really convenient for games or shows (we walked to Brookstone after for a concert). We'll definitely be back!
