Not impressed. The rooftop bar at Noelle is very cool but this restaurant lacked. No one in our party was impressed with the food. Nashville has lots of options so there is no need to return. Atmosphere wasn’t the best either. The bathrooms were cool though!
Including tip, we paid a total of about $60 for two people. Considering the fact that we’ve been many places and paid much more money, this immediately becaome one of our favorites. Every dish was impressive and we can’t wait to go back and try something different!
Fettuccine was amazing. Old Fashioned delicious. The deviled eggs were okay. Service was great.
Love this place! Great food, great service, and cool vibe. Been in before and will be back again.
Burger and steak were both great. Draft beer selection isn’t big but the options are solid. Definitely recommend
I felt like I was in a cafeteria at a senior living facility. They were 'understaffed', so there were some interesting exchanges between host / servers that should have gone on behind closed doors. Brunch menu is really small and a tad overpriced. I will say the hot chicken sandwich was awesome. So were the home fries. Food was the best part - atmosphere is just seriously lacking. Not where I want to go in Downtown Nashville.
I like the casual atmosphere, the menu isn't overwhelming. Nice variety of things to share. We had roasted oysters, Bavarian pretzel, and the Country ham, all yum! Entrees, 2 elk and 2 L&L burgers. All very tasty. Our server was Peter and he went above and beyond to make sure we had an exceptional evening.
Was popping around downtown and stopped in for a bite. Easy to grab a res, restaurant was moderately busy, service was great, food was awesome. Cheese board to start off, pot pie, pasta, and chicken to go for dinner. All were pleased!
I went on a double date here and do not recommend going. The waitress was not friendly and rushed us through our meal. The food was mediocre and the menu was not cohesive. The only thing that we enjoyed were the cocktails which were very well made.
Makeready was one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in Nashville. Awesome drinks, amazing food and great service (thanks @London!)
Service and food were both great. In and out for a quick lunch. I will definitely be back.
One of the best burgers I've ever had. Says alot. Was dining with somone with multiple food allergies and they were very accomodating. Definitely would go back!
Service was amazing, food was amazing. There isn’t one thing I could possibly complain about. Loved Makeready!! Will be back.
Celebrated a birthday at Makeready! The service was wonderful! Not only did we receive complimentary champagne with dinner, the birthday boy received a free dessert!
Hamburger was McDonald’s grade from the meat to the bun. Barely edible. Expected far more from this restaurant. We dined a block over the night before and the food was amazing. Skip this place
Everything was delicious! We’re locals and will be back!
Everything was very tasty. Well seasoned (a rarity these days) and cooked perfectly. The gemelli & Cheese (their version of Macaroni and Cheese) had a nice, warm kick to it.
We’re locals and dine here often. We’ll be back!
My wife and I went for our anniversary and was given a champagne on what we thought was the house being that we did not ask for it. Once we got the check we saw we were charged for said champagne that we did not ask for . Overall though the food was great.
I feel the chef was trying hard , but everything was too salty or spicy . All the food was very pretty and beautifully presented , so it’s just a pity the taste didn’t live up to the presentation .
Strangely , the grilled oysters were super spicy , the deviled eggs were pretty salty, and the chicken pot pie was salty and one note . The melon panna cotta was our favorite dish and , thankfully , not spicy or salty . The Sauvignon Blanc wine was very sweet for that type of wine . I almost think they brought me the wrong one . Our server was good , and the atmosphere and ambiance is pretty nice .
Hopefully , they can work on the seasoning of the food .
Great place and outstanding food. We will be back again.
Well prepared food from knowledgeable staff. Would gladly return.
Keeping in mind that they where busy and I understand that. The host was very rude to me. For one she called me the night before to confirm my reservation which was totally fine. We confirmed it for 11:45 am. The day of I come there we where a little early we got there at 11:35 and she was snippy with me and said will seat you at 11:45 so we waited. 11:45 rolls around and she walks right past me and sits another table before we where seated. My mother had to go up to the host stand and grab her attention again for her to finally seat us. I don’t remember her name but she was the Asian American young lady at the host desk. She’s rude and her attitude needs to be readjusted. Being busy isn’t an excuse to completely ignore us, and frankly have a hostile demeanor. I understand working on Christmas was a hassle, but she shouldn’t have came in if she wasn’t going to be friendly. Everyone else was great. The food was great. Our waiter was amazing, but that host was definitely being a GRINCH.
I made a Christmas Day brunch reservation for my daughter and I. The food was absolutely outstanding as was the service.
My family wanted me to enjoy Christmas morning without cooking breakfast for everyone. So they found Make Ready at the Noelle Hotel and booked a table. The service was excellent and the staff were friendly and attentive. Our meals came quickly. The menu was short and we all enjoyed our dishes. Loved our time there.
So so so bad.
Excellent service! Fun atmosphere! Great food! Highly recommend!
The pot pie, burger and fries were beyond salty. Decent service.
The food was outstanding! We had a party of 8 and the service was great. No one had a bad meal and will definitely be back.
Good atmosphere. Waited about 15 minutes and had to flag down server for a second round. Food just ok and a little pricey.
Love this place. Great place for locals. Food and service have always been great and free valet parking is an added plus. New beer list is also amazing. I will be back!
We had brunch there with another couple before going to the symphony. All of us ordered something different and everyone loved what they had. Mine was the smoked salmon with cream cheese on toast with a salad. It was very good. We were able to sit comfortably and talk without loud noise. Service was great with several people checking on us to be sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely return.
Very disappointed in the menu change. It used to be interesting and fun. I recommended it everyone. Now even the cocktail menu is boring. If you hadn’t eaten here before you would probably think it was perfectly fine. I remember the old Makeready. Now it’s just a serviceable hotel meal. I’m a local and probably won’t be back.
And here we are again. Lovely staff, first off. Peter was our server and handled the table professionally and attentively. He knew when to give us our space (it was a business meeting) and when to interject with a recommendation or lighthearted comment. A very well in-tune service staff. Thank you.
The food was spectacular. From the delicious pretzel (crunchy at the top, soft at the bottom) & beer cheese, roasted oysters (a flavor BOMB), the turkey-pot-pie hand pie, the inventive take on a meat & 3 (my only complaint was that there was TOO MUCH goodness on the plate for us to finish — so we had to take it home, the fight on who would get the leftovers notwithstanding), the perfectly cooked elk, and the fresh take on a vegetarian fettuccine Bolognese — all was perfect to a pitch.
It was a busy night for them. We were sat a bit past our reservation but didn’t mind waiting. We had scrumptious drinks at the bar (by Grayson) and, while he was slammed, didn’t miss a wink or a smile or a stellar recommendation as to how we should get our dinner started.
It was a great experience across the board. The kitchen killed it, the service brought it home. We’re all locals to Nashville and we’ll be back and bring our friends! Thanks again.
The pork chop meat and three was outstanding. There was a wonderful smokiness that came from the wood-fired grill (that the server, Kat, was more than versed with) that kept us coming back for more. The rice, the peas, the SWEET POTATOES were all so delicious.
They also have beer pairings that were magnificent. Ben, the beer specialist, stopped by out table to ensure that we had the right thing to drink every step of the way.
When you’re here, life is good. Life is boisterous and just enjoyable. Show up, eat some fish and chips, have a burger, and get a few of the vegetable offerings. These folks know what they’re doing and they’re gonna have you ready to toss a few back and leave you thirsty and hungry for more.
I wish I could get my candle burning at THREE ends after I left. Dig in, leave your belt unbuckled (the portions were GENEROUS), and keep it coming, friends. This is a place to enjoy yourself.
We’ll be back. Thanks for everything!
What a wonderful surprise from this hidden gem right off of 4th and Church! Greeted with a big smile as my wife and I were early for our reservation. We were promptly seated and greeted by our server Scot. He offered a few of his favorite selections and pitched the daily features, which were Mac n Cheese, Fish n Chips and grilled cabbage. I ended up with the Fish n Chips and my wife got the steak. Everything was perfectly cooked and Scot continued to make sure that we were enjoying ourselves. Not sure why some of the reviews were less than 5 stars.....I highly recommend Makeready!! I will say that if I had to be critical of one thing, it would be the decor. I think they are going for some type of Tavern theme but the dining room doesn’t feel that way. Nonetheless, if you’re in Nashville, be sure to stop into Makeready
This was our second time coming to Makeready and it was as excellent as the first time. I told them it was my birthday and they greeted us with champagne and gave us free dessert at the end! The vegetable “bolognese” and burger are great, highly recommend this place for a fancy date or a casual hang.
The decor was cool and the atmosphere was nice but the food was not very good. Got a pretzel that was too hard, trout was very over cooked and under seasoned, elk was also over cooked and under seasoned - and it wasn’t cheap either. Drinks were tasty but pricey. Would not return for food but would consider just having a drink there again.
What a gem in downtown Nashville! I feel like Makeready is in the perfect location for a pre-game or pre-show dinner. It's easily walkable to Ryman, Bridgestone and Nissan Stadium. The food is all incredible. Service is super friendly. And they have a lot of cool craft beers to choose from. I'll definitely be back.
Terrific in every way.
Fantastic place for brunch. We celebrated a bday and the staff was extra nice. Highly recommended
