Friendly hostess who seated us immediately! Our waitress made good menu recommendations & was just right attentive. The food was delicious & presented very nicely. Some different selections than one usually sees. Some very nice wine in the cellar too & the bottle we chose was superb. Convenient location too!
Definitely recommend this restaurant!

This place is fantastic! Fried green tomato appetizer is a must. Crab cakes were all crab, no filler with a nicely spiced creme & succotash. The bouillabaisse was flavorful & full of delicious seafood. Then came the apple fritter bread pudding with salted caramel ice cream which was amazing!!! I’m not kidding, make room for dessert. Drink selections were good & reasonably priced. Very welcoming & laid back staff, not afraid to make suggestions. We’ll be dining here the next time we are in Nashville.

Overall the food was excellent. One of the four of us ordered the special of mahi mahi and it was overcooked. I had the seafood bouillabaisse and the other two in our party had the scallop dish and all were delicious. We were disappointed we were not able to finish our dinner with a cappuccino - I would suggest adding that drink to your line up. The ambiance is lovely. I don't like doing this but you should know because it could hurt your business - our waiter was way too chatty - he would stand at our table for 5 minutes at a time and tell us all about himself and his family, trips he took, etc. Some of the stories seemed far fetched and I found myself not wanting him to come and ask us about anything because he would provide another non requested soliloquy.

We had been several times before and always enjoyed it. Waiter only asked the men for their food orders and walked away before asking for our women’s first course orders and dessert. We had to call to him for our orders. Never asked the women for our dessert orders either. Entrees were underwhelming which was not normal for this restaurant. Definitely not an enjoyable birthday dinner and sadly won’t return again.

This was the second time that my husband and I visited M Restaurant. During our first visit the food, atmosphere, and service provided was awesome so we decided to visit again and the second visit was just as amazing as the first. M Restaurant is now one of our favorites, we will definitely be eating here often.

Ask for Alex as your server, he has encyclopediac knowledge of the menu, its ingredients and flavors. Like having a friend at the table. Food was perfection, no detail missed. Will be back when I'm in Nashville again.

Staff were not enthused that we showed up right when it opened, but they warmed up. The shrimp and grits crushed it. The street tacos kind of taste like Taco Bell, a little off. Also, the hot chicken and waffles were a slam dunk. Thanks for having us, was fun! Very accommodating to a group of 7.

Highly recommend. The food was amazing. We did the roasted beet salad, the wedge salad and the veggie tower. All were fantastic. We decided to indulge in the apple fritter dessert it was so yummy and can't wait to go back the next time we are in Nashville. The cocktails were refreshing and delightful as well.

Very disappointed by the food. I had the catch of the day and it was inedible. The waiter did not ask us how our food was and didn’t seem to notice that I had only eaten one bite of the fish. Will not return

We have eaten here many times before and our favorite dish has always been the shrimp and grits. However, last night I tried the filet mignon. One of the best steak dinners in town! It is my new favorite now.

We were greeted fairly routinely and given a table away from the window, the center of the restaurant. Water came quickly, however, our server ‘C’ acted rushed upon arriving to our table. He insisted we give him our food order, before we even ordered our drinks. Wine came and momentarily our room temperature salads on unchilled plates were set in front of us. The flavorful entrees arrived, luke warm. The bouillabaisse seemed as though the seafood (rubbery lobster claws, broken shelled mussels, and 1 raw scallop) had all been placed in the bowl and then warm, not hot, chorizo and shrimp broth poured on top...not a very cohesive dish. The Texas style toast garnish was horrible. At no point did anyone stop by our table to ask if we were enjoying our food or offer to pour the wine. We observed other servers attentive to their patrons as our server flitted around the dining room as other staff set up for a couple of much larger tables that would arrive about 45 minutes later. Guess their business was more important than ours. When dessert was offered, we politely refused...’C’ already had our check prepared. That usually happens only in a diner.

Absolutely wonderful! From the wine, to dinner, to the dessert, Chef has it going on. The attention to detail on all meals is obviously based on love. We had a part of 5 ladies and they treated us like queens. Large parties, small parties, they can accommodate. I had an issue with my reservation on Open Table, and had to modify it, going from 10 to 6 to 7 to 5 people (we were in town for a Rodan and Fields convention) along with two different time slots. They were very accommodating and addressed my issue immediately. Getting a table (anywhere in the area) for as many and as little as we had was a challenge on this particular night and M Restaurant took care of us. No stress at all for me!! The food was delicious!

The most incredible customer service! We had our little one with us and our amazing waitress went above and beyond. She mentioned the chefs can make whatever our daughter would like as they don’t offer a kids menu.....they whipped her up the BEST fried chicken and fries. The food was absolutely delicious......the fried green tomatoes are a MUST! Highly recommend!

I have been the the M a couple times. Each time it has been very good. They treat you well. The food is great, whether you get the fish or filet. Not as crowded or noisy compared to a lot of places downtown. Folks in our party enjoyed the Salmon, Filet, and the Mahi-Mahi special.

The only reason I did not give it a five for value is that the portions could be a little larger.

Our group of five had a wonderful evening at M on our first evening in Nashville. Our server was very knowledgeable and personable, and our meals were perfectly timed and so delicious. We will definitely return during our next trip.
