Went there for Thanksgiving. Food was very good, but our courses were rushed out. Got our soup before the cocktail and they tried to bring the dessert while I still had half my entree left to finish.
Had a wonderful time for their special Thanksgiving menu. Delicious and perfect blend of flavors. Scott was an attentive server. Will definitely be back for more special dinners(and their regular ones, too.)
Bland interiors, overpriced mediocre food. Was very disappointed based on all the great reviews.
Waiter was so nice!
The food was fine. The experience, not only the service, was underconscientious, to put it nicely. For example, the our server suggested the local hams board as an appetizer for our party of 4. The menu description listed ham, sorghum butter, pickles, and biscuits. We were brought one biscuit cut in half. When we pointed out the discrepancy, our server responded that he does not write the menu. He then brought us . . . one more biscuit. We don't expect Cracker Barrel, but come on! The meal proceeded thusly.
Love this place
Our server was wonderful and the food was delicious. One thing that was a little concerning was that from where we were sitting we could see the plates sitting up on the ledge in the kitchen waiting for the servers to pick them up. Twice we saw a male employee walk by and pick up a french fry from a customers soon to be delivered plate. 😖
Scot was great! He was attentive. My team had a great time and loved their lunch.
Great drinks and food!
Service was just ok. The waiter was cute so he got away with forgetting my drink order (that he checked my ID for but never put in) forgetting to refill waters, not asking how I wanted my burger cooked, and not checking in enough.
Salmon dip was delicious. Burger was OK. American cheese remains to this day to be gross no matter how you dress it up but I took that chance. Take the cheese off that burger and you’ve got a winner.
Makeready has become one of our favorite restaurants in Nashville. We eat there before Predators games and other downtown events. I like the local beer selection, and the meat of the day entree is always good. One member of our party said her grouper was the best she ever ate.
Appetizers were good, entrees just ok. Steak temperature cooked under what was requested. Waitress was ok.
Good food from interesting menu. Cocktails were awesome, especially liked that there was an option that wasn’t sweet. Did well with a gluten intolerance. Gave us time and space to visit.
The service was very good, very nice staff. Food was OK
Would rate restaurant a 10 but parking is a challenge & only 1 hotel elevator was working. When we left we found the side door on Church St. which was a short flight up. Much better option. Valet parking is a must as that area is so busy. Our waitress was excellent & food was delicious. Will definitely return. Want to go back one evening when the “speakeasy” is open. Hotel has been beautifully restored. So glad to see people restoring historic buildings rather than tearing them down. Definitely want to try the rooftop restaurant in spring/summer.
Everything was great. Highly recommend!
Not enough vegetarian options. Service felt understaffed. Other then that everything was great.
Had a great time. Beautiful building and all the staff was very friendly
It’s a restaurant for the hotel. Service staff were on cell phones and looked sloppy- menu was odd
We enjoyed the ambiance. The soft pretzel and beer cheese dip are fantastic. It looks ideal for groups.
One of our local favorites.
This restaurant is just okay. Which is surprising because the majority of the reviews for the food, the ambiance, and the overall experience are raving. But, then you have to wonder...are all these reviewers small town tourists or Nashville natives? Because if you've never been to the "big city" before, or you're born and raised in Nashville (and don't travel!) then maybe this restaurant IS amazing to you, and the food might be great, if you've never been to a great restaurant before? I don't know. We weren't impressed.
SO good! The food was delicious, service was great, ambience was relaxing and cool. Really enjoyed our breakfast and this new spot.
Eclectic menu for a Sunday brunch. If not familiar with the area, the restaurant is difficult to find since signage is minimal.
Wonderful food - simple but creative. The Pork Cheek special was super tender and the burgers were buttery and tasty.
Looked for someplace away from the busy loud Broadway scene but close enough to go back after. The food was great and it was exactly what we wanted.
If I was rating only the food, Makeready would receive 5 stars. However, since the restaurant was preparing for a big prepaid dinner, starting 90 mins after our reservation, the service was poor. Several things were not available on the menu (3 different items we tried to order). We felt rushed by the servers to finish so they could clear the table. We had to ask 2x for drinks. Desert was not offered. And we were there to celebrate a birthday. The food was great, but service needs to be reviewed when there is an event happening at the restaurant later in the evening. We had the feeling we were an inconvenience.
Great service and the food was amazing!
Very nice atmosphere. Food was decent, but our server should have asked how we wanted the burger cooked, swordfish was a little dry.
Enjoyed dinner with a friend. This is a gem within the Noelle hotel (has an independent entrance) they'll also valet and validate if you go in for dinner. Between the well-crafted cocktails, appetizers that include the deviled eggs, a huge pretzel, entrees that feature Elk chops and burgers, and a dessert that takes banana pudding and infuses it with bourbon you have the makings of a great meal!
The best biscuit I ever had. Their chicken dinner was delicious. The strawberry mascarpone cake melted in your mouth. Definitely a worthy meal.
The best spot downtown that won't break the bank, has inspired seasonal food, and a fantastic curated draft list. If I were to open my perfect restaurant it would be Makeready. Tell only as many people as needed to keep the place profitable and open, but let's keep this new(ish) gem of downtown a secret. There's plenty of crap downtown Nashville that we need to support this great place as much as possible. Need to stay open later than 10pm on weekends though, people.
Our party had a great time. All food was great. My ribeye was the only thing that was just ok.
Great service. Not so great food.
Food was ok, service was a little slow and bartender was slow to respond with few guest. convenient place before a TPAC show
Not sure what was happening in the kitchen, but our idea of a relaxing dinner turned into a stressful and frustrating experience.
We arrived at 6:15 and told our server that we were walking to an 8:00 show at TPAC. Ordered everything (all on pre-fixed menu) at server’s first visit to our table (2 pp).
While our appetizer came @ 6:45, our entrees arrived after repeated inquiries at 7:20 - over an hour after they were ordered!
Dessert arrived at 7:40 after more inquiries with an incorrect bill.
While the food was good, the experience was tainted.
waited 20 minutes for a 6:15 reservation for 4. Food took a very long time. Missed start of 8 pm show.
Our server at the restaurant was very friendly and gave great recommendations. The chicken was fantastic, as was the mac and cheese. My friend had the meat and three, and said that was great as well. I would definitely recommend giving this place a try. Right next to Printer's Alley too.
Didn’t have the greatest service and the food was just ok. We’ve been there before when it was less busy and had a better experience. They really could stand to expand some of their menu options. My biggest issue was paying $19 for a very small old fashioned using run of the mill bourbon. Anywhere else in Nashville charges about $12 and you get a decent pour with a higher quality bourbon. Nothing really to write home about or recommend here unfortunately. I wish it was better because it is in a great location and nice atmosphere. It was just ok.
Our food was lukewarm and just okay. For what we paid, I expected better quality.
