Food quality was good but having to wait 25 minutes in between delivery of 2 single entrees and being told “that’s how it works” is unacceptable.

Outstanding experience at Henrietta Red. Definitely lives up to the hype. Tried about 8 dishes and enjoyed them all with the steak tartare, crab salad, & duck my personal favorites. Looking forward to coming back next visit!

We went for the oyster bar/dinner. The oyster lovers among us were overwhelmed by the large selection and did enjoy the oysters with accompanying sauces, especially the cider vinegar-based sauce others enjoyed the crudos. The following small plates were high quality. It's easy to spend a lot of money here by ordering a large number of plates, IMHO 2 plates or fewer per person is plenty.

Service was a little spotty, made a couple of errors in the orders.

A rare instance in the Nashville restaurant scene where the flavors are clearly complex and wonderful. This town is full of restaurants where the cuisine looks amazing but often falls flat on taste. Henrietta Red is the true exception and a delight.

Just think this place is overrated.
The food is creative and tasty, but...
The service is uneven and we didn’t care for how the food comes out of the kitchen drip by drip.
This trendy approach just drives us crazy. Suggests a lack of coordination in the kitchen and with the wait staff.
Not one of our faves in Music City.

Yes, and often have done so... Everyone had a WONDERFUL dinner with great happy hour drinks, delicious oysters, and superb wine. We were entertaining a new faculty member, so thank you for making us shine! Everyone had such a great time that apparently one of our faculty started a conversation with your superstar server about doing some sort of science outreach night at your venue -- your manager might want to contact Dr. D. Borden Lacy at Vanderbilt as a follow-up.

This was our first visit and I'm only disappointed we didn't visit sooner. We had wonderful service and both my husband and I thought it was the best meal we've had since moving to Nashville 8 years ago. (He had the snapper, I had the vegetable plate. We started with the broccoli toast and beet salad.) It was a little loud, but otherwise everything was excellent. Highly recommend, and we will be back!

Everything was outstanding - the cocktails, raw oysters, carpaccio, beet salad, red wine, and baked apple dessert. The service was fantastic. We will definitely return on a future trip to Nashville. Thank you!!

Very good, creative food in an energetic atmosphere. Wine list is limited but good quality. Bartenders are excellent mixologists. Service was very good, knowledgeable and attentive. We have no complaints and will return.

We’ve been to some great restaurants in our time and rate our dinner here as the highlight of the year. The food was flawless wine nicely paired wine. What blew us away though was that after making our reservation on Opentable with some information about dietary restrictions I received a phone asking for more details so that a custom menu could be prepared for our evening. Sure enough as we were seated my wife had a special menu prepared for her. This was above and beyond our expectations. Nothing new was added to the menu but it was nice to know that she could have anything on her menu.

Thanks for making a memorable meal for us.

Came here for the Sunday brunch and the decor is minimal, however completely stunning. Everything we ordered was fresh, delicious and creative. We started out with Chili butter roasted oysters followed by the beet salad. The oysters were cooked to perfection and the beet salad have crunchy elements and delicious mix of beets. It leaves you wanting more, which I love. Next, we had the crab cake and the cheeseburger. The crab cake had so much crab meat, it was fantastic and the cheeseburger had pimento cheese and pickle which was a great compliment to the burger. Would come back in a heartbeat and so happy to have a great seafood spot close to home. Will come back again and again!!

Fabulous, sophisticated flavors. Dining room was hot with the midday sun and very loud. I closed the shade on the window by our table but it stayed warm. Server was good and quite attentive except she didn’t offer us dessert so I forgot to try the fennel ice cream I had seen on the menu online. The broccoli toast really is revelatory. Very reasonably priced for such a delicious meal.

Highly recommended by a friend whose son goes to VU. Nice brunch with clean atmosphere, fresh made to order food with friendly service. We don’t eat oysters but appears to be the place if you do! The broccoli toast was amazing and the sweet potato coffee cake was a big hit at our table; we even ordered one to go!

Sat at the counter and enjoyed conversation with the oyster guy. (Please tell him thanks for the tip about the 5 Spot. I went the next night for two great acts.) Woman who seated me and served wine was exceptionally attentive. Delicious oysters and fish.

While the food, wine and ambiance would have been delightful in any case, our waitress Alana was special. Friendly and knowledgeable about everything available, she helped us pick just the right wine and more, and paced everything perfectly. All around outstanding fine dining experience.

We were there two nights in a row. We had almost all things on the menu. The one item that was just so-so is the mussels.

Wine awesome, oysters fantastic, overall one of the best restaurants for overall easy atmosphere and good food. Share it all! The best way to enjoy it.
