Southern
Rooted in the traditions of regional cooking, Henley celebrates quality products made by American hands. That starts with the hand selected bourbon and Tennessee whiskey barrels that populate our drink program and extends to our rich appreciation for the bounty available in the American South. The atmosphere evolves as you move through the space: bright and breezy on patio, hushed and moody in Snooker. As for the inner sanctum--Henley’s coveted Rabbit Hole--well, you’ll just have to experience that for yourself.

Probs one of the best dinner I’ve had in a long time and their espresso martini was to die for. SOO WORTH A VISIT. So worth the price.

One of several upscale places we ate at over the week in Nashville. Everything was very good and the waiter was great to start with, but lost interest in us in lieu of another table....which was strange? So many places to eat at on this level, not sure if this would be a place I’d come back to.

We really enjoyed the food at Henley and our server Danielle was amazing. Her skill in the service industry set her apart! She expertly navigated the dining experience and her recommendations were on point to our flavor palettes and dietary preferences.

What food we had was generally fine. A number of items on both the drink and food menus weren’t available to the point we bet each time we ordered something if the restaurant actually had it.

Food was burned, crab dip was bland & small, I loved the squid ink pasta, but scarce on shrimp. Kale Caesar was mediocre at best, cocktails waaaaaaaay overpriced, restaurant was overpriced in general, but the service was top notch.

Hasn’t been here in over a year. It is clear a new head chef is in charge. Every single meal and appetizer we had was fantastic! Two of us had the grouper and okra. Exquisite. The duck breast was perfectly cooked but the faro chitarra was the surprise star of the dishes! Simply incredible.

Sadie, our server, was attentive at all the right moments. Henley’s has now become my go to place for a night out in Nashville.

Was really excited to try this place but overall disappointing. The portion size of our entree was very small; we had a very long wait for food, they were out of 7 things on the menu and our waiter seems like he was managing too many tables. Overall disappointed. Cocktails were good though.

We went to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday and we had a great time. They had an issue with the power in the kitchen, so we had to wait for maintenance to fix it, but they made sure that we were content while we waited. When we got our food, it was delicious. The wait staff is very friendly as well.

Food and service were both great; however, the food was very over priced. It was a Friday night so the place was packed (which is awesome) but the seating is very close together, resulting in a high noise level. Overall great night.

A nice meal. My husband and I dined at Henely during our stay at the Kimpton in Nashville. The space is cute, we sat in the back a two-top table. Our server had a lot of energy and was friendly. We had the spring rolls, although very very tasty not a spring roll at all. They were wrapped in wonton paper and fried, but still very yummy. We also shared the Skirt Steak, which was good, I was craving more au jus, we ate the entire place. We also had the burnt broccoli salad. An interesting dish for sure. Voted 'Best Meal in Nashville'????

The restaurant is lovely and comfortable. Food was decent, but nothing special. Frankly, overpriced for the quality and amount. I was still hungry after the meal was over. Service was above average. The waitress was adorable and attentive.
In the vast sea of new restaurants in Nashville, I'd say this one is middle of the pack. Not horrible, not exceptional.

Amazingly, carefully, and thoughtfully prepared food! Crab pimento cheese app was amazing as was the local shrimp and squid ink pasta. Yum. Tasso spring rolls were delightfully spicy and delicious. Dessert was just as awesome. Had no idea this was a James Beard awardee chef - we told the waiter he should be considered and the waiter didn’t seem to know... As in a lot of today’s trendy restaurants, dining area was frightfully loud and freezing cold. Wait staff turned quickly from cool to gracious and was as excited as we were about the quality of the food. The manager stopped by twice to check on us. We were traveling and staying close by and the menu caught my eye. Now we are talking about a purpose trip back to Nashville with friends to share this find. Really, really, really good. Fresh, innovative, perfectly executed and just a culinary delight! We will be back!!!

Lovely anniversary dinner. Heads up, the meat entrees do not come with vegetable sides on their own, so you'd have to order those separate. The desserts were very nice as well.

Wonderful food and excellent service! I would suggest, though, if you ever do an event like bouquets and brunch, I’d set expectations a bit more clearly up front. I came to celebrate my two wonderful friends, both of whom are new mothers. We were all very excited to receive bouquets! When we learned the offer was only one bouquet per table, we were all very disappointed and, frankly we were quite annoyed. After inquiring about the policy and expressing our frustration with your hostess twice, she finally (and grumpily) gave us all free bouquet vouchers. Although that may sound incredibly cheap, had we been better prepared with clear directions and up-front expectations, we would’ve not left Henley with such a sour taste in our mouths.

Thank you so much for your review! Your feedback regarding our brunch & bouquet promotion is so helpful! We do post verbiage saying guests can select a fresh bouquet from the flower truck while supplies last, but will definitely take your comments and put them to good use. I would love to personally make a reservation for you next time and give this another go! Best, Jenelle Engleson Assistant General Manager jenelle.engleson@henleynashville.
