    Quiet and empty on a weekday for lunch. Front doors were locked and our party had to wander about the hotel trying to find it. Limited menu. Inflated hotel prices were expected, though the food itself was nothing memorable. Service was attentive.

    We went for Brunch prior to the Titans game. Service was good. Entrees were of average quality, skimpy portions, and overpriced. Cocktails were also overpriced--$12 for a Bloody Mary or Mimost

    On the website it advertised eating brunch in your pjs and was encouraged to do so. My friend and I show up on some casual clothes and robes and non of the employees seemed to be aware of the false advertisement. Service was terrible and food was expensive and mediocre. Felt very judged by staff for wearing pjs.

    MakereadyResponded on September 20, 2021I'm so sorry that you felt judged in any way! We love when guests show up relaxed and ready for bubbles in their pjs! We are always a little jealous we aren't wearing the same. I promise you this is not false advertisement as we have had plenty of people show up in robes & similar attire - we encourage it! Please reach out to us the next time you come to visit, and ask for the manager. We would love to make it up to you - amazing service and tasty brunch is something we want you to experience!

    We enjoyed our time at Makeready. The breakfast sandwich was delicious and a must try! I wish the option to have different sides with your breakfast was explained better. The breakfast sandwich comes with a side salad but you have other options for sides on the menu. It wasn't made super clear you could switch your sides out. The drinks were very good and I enjoyed a Bellini with breakfast. The chef came out to see how our meal was and ask about the quality/service we received. I would go back!

    What I love about this place is The location, the overall vibe of the staff is fantastic. This restaurant is located on the lower level of the Noelle hotel, and it’s perfect if you’re either staying at the hotel or staying in one nearby. Breakfast tacos were the big hit really well done. If you’re looking for a great brunch spot with consistent great food this is the place.

    I was so hoping for an amazing experience. Really nice ambience. Our server seemed new. Could not keep up with coffee or water. The food was just ok. It had definitely been sitting before it was served and the restaurant wasn’t full. We work hard to eat local to support local restaurants.... they weren’t even glad to see us. Definitely will not be back.

    The food and drinks were good, but the service was so SLOW. It took us 15-20 minutes to valet out car. Took us 15-20 minutes to get drinks each time we ordered another round, despite there being just 1 or 2 other parties there at the same time we were. So no more than 8 people in the restaurant at once while we were there, yet we were having to wait 15-20 minutes for things that we asked for or just for a waiter to come back over. There was one particular server who was great and very nice and helpful, I can’t remember his name but I’d go back and request to have him as a server.

    Please never ever EVER make that steak and pasta Valentine’s Day special ever again walnuts and no seasoning on either ! It was disgusting. Server and hosts were great and the drinks were very good as well, appetizer was cold and raw, should notify on menu that oysters will be raw. Desert was okay too a regular chocolate cake would have been fine without the marshmallow, I can’t stress enough how disgusting the food was. I Loved the scenery I wish we could have substituted something else but server did not seem to want to swap out our food. Everything else was fine.

    From walking in the door to leaving, we thoroughly loved our experience. My husband and I enjoyed the deviled eggs, hot chicken sandwich, burger, Mac n cheese, and those shoe string fries were to die for! Didi mention the serving sizes were generous? Our server, Brittany, was very attentive and extremely pleasant. Oh, and the restroom sinks were very cool! We’d definitely recommend and return!

    Host was not there, servers were short staffed and unfriendly, overwhelmed. Makeready needs hospitality consultants to come in and get it done right. As a hospitality professional myself this was an embarrassing display to my industry and passion.
