The seared Catfish was cooked to perfection. The server suggested a French 75 to drink- could definitely be my new favorite drinks. Such an experience. All Covid precautions were in placed. Will definitely be back.

My two adult boys and I went to Gray and Dudley on Christmas Eve and were greeted efficiently and warmly. We were offered cocktails prior to dinner and enjoyed touring the art gallery prior to dinner. The meal and service was impeccable and will be a memory for years to come. I pray for the employees of the restaurant and hotel as they were very close to the Nashville bombing.

It was “ok”. Went for Thanksgiving dinner. The price on the website was about $30. However when we got the bill it was 50 something. The food was OK, nothing special.

Hi alcearl, I am so sorry to hear about the miscommunication on the pricing of the Thanksgiving dinner. Holidays are as important as ever and we are very sorry to have not delivered what you all were expecting. We hope you will give us another chance to get it right in the New Year.

Service was great, cocktails were excellent, but the cuisine was overpriced and disappointing. Cool, trendy space, but we were only one of two tables on a Wednesday evening — kind of a dead feeling.

The restaurant was largely empty due to COVID which definitely made it feel like a hidden gem. Our waitress Jenny was incredible and so helpful with suggestions for the area because we were new! The food is to die for. Th catfish was absolutely divine and the barbecue shrimp is an absolute must-order.

Bonus points to their “secret Sunday” wine list. We got an absolutely delicious Vinho verde bottle for only $20 and it was absolutely divine. Not to mention the restaurant is attached to a hotel/ art museum you can take your drink with you to view! Would be great for a date night or really any occasion.

10/10, an amazing restaurant. I will most definitely be eating here again.

We were the only table eating outside, but they were not crowded inside. No menus - you have to pull it up on an app on your phone. Seriously? Service was slow, and our wait person pretty much forgot about us once the entrees were served. Two of us ordered coffee - nobody every came by to see if we would like a refill, nor did anyone check on my son's beer. The food was good, not outstanding. Overall kind of meh. There are better choices in downtown Nashville.

The potato cake! What a satisfying crunch and perfect portion -- enough to keep my black beans and fluffy eggs happy. I wanted more of the roasted tomato salsa and queso fresco, not because there wasn't enough on the plate, but because it was so darned good!

And Lord, the homemade hot sauce. I won't ever ask for Tabasco at G&D again.

The charred carrots with whipped feta and pistachio are so yummy. The chocolate chip cookies are "eat with a spoon" delectable.

Terra and Kyle are a dream team. I felt instantly comfortable, with Terra sweetly and attentively making sure I was happy with each delicious cocktail and course. And Kyle! That guy is just the best. His friendliness and genuineness set me at ease -- as did his polite but firm insistence that guests wear masks and share their info for contact tracing. (Not in here, Covid! : )

One word comes to mind, WOW! What an amazing dinner we had here. It was our first time to dine here and there wasn't one area that missed the mark. The staff so friendly, in fact, they relocated the two of us since there was a Bachelorette party being seated next to us. The boudin balls, and beverages was the best. Our hats off to the bar tender who could actually make a Hurricane. And, the entrée, yes! The roasted chicken was one of the best we've experienced. Thank you for making our experience the best! We will be back, and we'll be promoters for you. If you're reading this, and want a romantic evening with the love of your life, you can't miss with choosing this establishment.
