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.
Hi Gregg! We are so delighted that you enjoyed your Christmas Eve with us! You and your boys were a true pleasure to have. Thank you for your kind words. We are thankfully safe and excited to be back January 15th! We hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday season, stay safe and if you feel like venturing out, we'd love to see you back! Many thanks, G&D Team
It was awesome! Great food, GREAT service
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. Madeline Smith | Restaurant Manager
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.
While in Nashville we wanted to checkout the 21C Museum Hotel. We live in Louisville where there is a 21C and lived in Cincinnati where there is also a 21C. Great places indeed!
You are a Penguin fan for sure! Thanks for the love and so happy that you came to visit us in Nashville, home of the teal penguins. Excited to hear about where your next 21c trip will take you. Enjoy the holidays and stay safe. Many thanks, G&D Team
Good experience, but nothing memorable
AmaZing little spot in the hotel. Really loved walking around after we ate
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.
Love that you loved everything about your dinner with us including Jenny's service, the "hidden gems" wine list and the catfish! Truly appreciate you coming to dine with us and hope to see you again soon. -The Gray & Dudley Team
Amazing food and service. Really neat relaxed vibe. The pork belly was on point.
While the food was good, the wait for the food was long. Additionally the menu is quite limited for Sunday brunch.
The alley way seating was really nice and quiet at the time I was there. Would recommend! Food was delicious. Pictures don't do it justice.
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.
We love reading how much you enjoyed the potato cake, ChanteL and can't wait to share your compliments with our chef team. Thank you for dining with us and for sharing your experience. We hope you'll be back soon! -The Gray & Dudley Team
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! : )
Thank you for recognizing Terra and Kyle for their hospitality, ChanteL! We sincerely appreciate you for taking the time to give the team a shout out. We will be looking forward to your return. -The Gray & Dudley Team
Great drinks and food!
Thank you for the shout out, Anonymous! We will work hard to earn that 5th star next time and hope to see you soon. -The Gray & Dudley Team
Great food and ambience. We also had a blast checking out the art gallery in the hotel!
Rich, thank you kindly for the shout out! We are excited you had the time to check out our museum too and hope you'll be back soon. -The Gray & Dudley Team
Great food and beverage, wonderful service.
The team was active and engaged, knowledgeable about all menu items and very service oriented.
Definitely a great experience!

Excellent Service. Amazing brunch and wonderful atmosphere.
Thank you for dining with us, KristyN! We sincerely appreciate your patronage and hope you'll be back again soon. -The Team at Gray & Dudley
The food was delicious but the coffee and lattes were horrible.
Thank you for dining with us, Kathy! We sincerely appreciate your feedback about our hot beverages and will make sure to share your comments. We hope you'll give us another try! -The Gray & Dudley Team
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.
Thank you so much, Tony! We are so excited you had such a great experience dining with us for the first time. We can't wait to share your shout outs with our team and we will absolutely look forward to welcoming you and Jean back upon your return. -The Gray & Dudley Team
We had a wonderful evening and the food was outstanding! Be sure to try the Boudin Balls and the Roasted carrots appetizers! My burger and fries were so so good! Staff was fantastic and the artwork throughout the hotel is very interesting. Enjoy!
Thank you for the lovely review, Kristine! We are so delighted that you had such a wonderful evening and that you enjoyed the Boudin Balls and Roasted Carrots. You can never go wrong with the burger and fries either. Thank you for taking the time to give a shout out to our teammates and museum as well. We will look forward to your return! -The Gray & Dudley Team
It was amazing, we pick a new brunch location each week and this did not disappoint. I love the idea behind 21c.
Dear Anonymous, we are so happy you picked us as your new brunch spot to try. We love seeing your shout out and hope you will be back soon. -The Gray & Dudley Team
Way over priced cocktails, pour service, limited menu
Dear Anonymous, Thank you for sharing this feedback with us. We are sorry you were disappointed with your experience and hope you'll give us another try. -The Gray & Dudley Team

Wonderful service- member of our party had a food allergy and server couldn’t be more wonderful about making sure he was accommodated. Great menu.
Thank you for sharing your experience, Steven! We love seeing that you and your party felt so well cared for and that you enjoyed the menu so much. We sincerely appreciate your patronage and hope to see you soon! -The Gray & Dudley Team
Dinner was amazing! Started with the onion rings for a guilty pleasure and chef treated us to a plate of yummy shishito peppers as well. We enjoyed the catfish and the market fish dish was actually shrimp the night we went. Both entrees were incredible. Best meal we've had in a long time! Can't wait to explore the rest of the menu.
What a great review, Elise! We are so very happy and proud to see your meal was the best you've had in a long time. We, along with Chef Matt, will look forward to your next visit! -The Gray & Dudley Team
Service was terrible. I was with a party of 4 & they didn’t even ask how we wanted to split the bill.
Thank you for dining with us, Anonymous! We are sorry your dining experience was not perfect. We sincerely appreciate this feedback and hope you will give us another try so we can give you the best Gray & Dudley experience. -The Gray & Dudley Team
The chef came out to talk to us and when we mentioned we liked something, he came back with a recipe. The farm to table food is so tasty and the drinks are fab!
Thank you for dining with us, Anonymous! Chef was so very happy to share that experience with you. We sincerely appreciate your patronage and hope you'll be back for another visit soon! -The Gray & Dudley Team
With COVID restrictions in place hard to give it a fair review. Food & service very nice but decor felt very sterile.
Thank you for this feedback, Eddy! While we do have special Covid precautions in place, it is our hope that the genuine hospitality remains unchanged. If you have any suggestions as to what would have made your experience better, we'd love to hear from you. We appreciate your patronage and will look forward to your next visit. -The Gray & Dudley Team
We had a great meal and drinks on Friday night in the outdoor area. The drinks and wine were awesome and our meal was top notch. I'd highly recommend Matt Bell and Gray & Dudley.

Took a group of 11 there for my birthday. Great restaurant!!! Would highly recommend it! Great food. A few blocks away from Broadway but still walkable. Far enough to get away from the chaos of Broadway.
