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.

The food was so good! The chef is amazing. Beautifully prepared delightfully done and presented. Am extremely enjoyable meal. We dined outside and it was quiet and lovely. The chicken liver foi Gras and the Scallops and grits were just exquisite. Have the chocolate soufflé with Frothy Monkey coffee. One of the best meals I’ve had in awhile and we are from Atlanta.

Food was great except the brisket pasta dish. I was not a fan of the sauce. The fried bree and mussels were fantastic.

Had wine and appetizers on the patio. Staff was very friendly. We got our 8:30pm reservation moved up to 6:30 by moving to the patio on a small table. We appreciated the flexibility of the the restaurant. Service was very polite and professional but a bit spotty since, we think, we got moved to the patio and were unexpected there...and staff had to improvise.

I didn’t realize the restaurant was ~1.3 miles from downtown Nashville when I made reservations. We decided to make the half hour walk from our hotel and I’m glad we did. We ordered bread and salad to start and had braised brisket and crispy pork belly. Everything was amazing! I would definitely go again.

To our surprise this is a hotel restaurant. To be fair, if i was staying in this hotel and want to grab dinner before heading to bed for the evening this would be a nice option.
However, this place isn’t designed to accommodate local guest. No valet parking on week days. None. At a hotel and no valet parking. The parking option is the hotel & building parking garage “just around the corner”. This place is also a residential building. Finding a place wasn’t too bad. What was unfortunate was trying to get to the hotel and restaurant. Want to get on elevator? Must be authorized to use elevator because its residential. If not for some understanding residents we would still be looking for a way to get in.
Just tying to get to this restaurant was a very unnecessary hassle. Even departing & getting back to the car was almost as bad. And there is a parking fee of $6.00 for the privilege of dining at this restaurant (we asked & they couldn’t stamp parking ticket).
Food was nice but they will not see me again.

There are much better options in Nashville for Brunch! If you are staying at this hotel, it might be worth it, but not a destination.

We tried something new. Several things why we will not come back. Sitting arrangement was not comfortable- right next to bar and waiters picking up drinks- it was a non-stop traffic behind my back. Waiter ( older gentleman ) was not looking friendly , we felt rushed, and he was obviously annoyed by our additional requests ( like salt etc.). Meals were coming in in a random order. By the time we got our waters and first appetizer, we were already hungry and started talking about leaving. Meals were ok. We paid and left with no restaurant curtsies ( like a simple good bye, some customer appreciation ?). We personally will not come back, as service is probably the most important for us in a restaurant valuation. Place might be good for those seeking a cool bar atmosphere

The cocktails were a little too sweet and the main dishes were overall good but lacked cohesion. The sides were fantastic as were the desserts. Great decor! Overall a good experience.

Henley is an upscale restaurant in a hotel lobby with trendy touches and modern menu. We had a great date in midtown Nashville as we sat outside on the porch during a pleasant summer evening. All the food tasty and delicious including fried Brie, mussels, scallops, and crispy pork belly.

Stopped for one night in Nashville on our way to Santa Fe. This restaurant was centrally located in midtown. I had mussels which were absolutely delicious. The Cesar salad was also very good. My husband had scallops which were quite tasty but the portion was pretty small, considering the price. The wine was excellent too.

We stayed at the Hotel Aerston and were very excited about dining here. We had dinner here our first night in town, as well as breakfast on our final day. The service was slow but it appeared that they were understaffed so we were understanding of that. The food, however, was just okay. I had the Braised Brisket Reginetti which wasn't bad, but was served cold. My husband had the Grilled Hanger Steak which was just okay. They had no kids menu so my 8 year old had a side of mac and cheese which she didn't like and my son had a burger. The breakfast options were a bit limited and just okay... They were even more short-staffed in the morning.

We loved everything we had at Henley. Our server, Danielle, was very attentive and very knowledgeable about the menu. At our table we started with the Country Fried Brie followed by the Grilled Hanger Steak, Braised Brisket Reginetti and the Henley Cheeseburger accompanied with the Crispy Fingerling Potatoes and the Sorghum "Everything" Rolls. All were inventive and excellent! We will definitely be returning!

Menu is ho-hum and some dishes (e.g. 3 scallops) are overpriced.
Late dinner so perhaps the kitchen was not feeling inspired, but...

The service was great. Everyone was very attentive, informative, and engaged. The food was excellent; everything we ate was outstanding. We had the mussels and the brie, both of which were unbelievable. The scallops and pork belly were cooked perfectly, and the souffle for desert was superb. We will definitely be coming back.

Overall great experience. Good food. Support staff was very helpful.
Server was knowledgeable but could have been a little more attentive. It was a little too chilly inside the restaurant and the door was propped open so we kept getting a draft of cold air even though we sat outside.
