______________________________________________________

Merchants is located in a historic building on the corner of 4th and Broadway in downtown Nashville that dates back to 1892. The building has been a myriad things, including a pharmacy, a wholesale drug company, and even a hotel. In 1988 it became Merchants restaurant. In 2010, the Goldberg brothers purchased the three-floor restaurant and gave it new life. The first floor bistro, with its black and white theme, features a lively atmosphere and casual cuisine. The second floor offers finer fare and a more intimate feel. The third floor is reserved for special events.

This Manager was super attentive and apologetic for the amount of time we waited! Love this restaurant! Mat the Server was quick and attentive our drinks never got empty and food came quickly. The entire staff was super friendly and did an awesome job when the whole restaurant was filled with many waiting. Highly recommend!!

We placed a drink order, then food order. Our food came out before our drinks were even made, because the server could not find the bartender. (?) The gumbo tasted like someone had simply poured canned spaghetti sauce over small amounts of chicken and sausage. The salmon was clearly a frozen cut, put on a gigantic bowl of mixed greens. We paid $88 for unfocused service and food that could have been made at home. All in all, that was a wasted date night.

The 2nd floor, where we ate, is a quieter more elegant dining experience compared to the louder fast pace bar style of the ground floor restaurant. The menu is brief and focused. The shrimp (five small lobster size) cocktail appetizer and the chicken pasta we shared were excellent. The portions were certainly large enough to share. The Brussel Sprouts side dish was delicious, but huge (my wife and I could not finish it). Service is fast, friendly and efficient. Melanie did a great job. Be aware that your food will arrive just a few nano-seconds after you order it so space out your order accordingly. Turn over is high to accommodate demand so no matter how much you try to space out your meal, you will be out in less than an hour.

They were surprised and we were too. Why were all these people here in downtown Nashville. But Merchants handled the huge volume of people pouring into their restaurant efficiently and with a smile on their face. The food was great and came quickly. Kudos to Management on a well ran restaurant.

Best food we’ve had in Nashville! And we’ve eaten at many different places. We will be back again.

Half of rack of lamb was delicious but the other half was very rare. ordered medium rare. Out of cream of spinach at 6:15?? Filet mignon was also excellent. Menu is more limited than I recall.

We were brought a fresh order. The French Dip was so full of gristle it was almost inedible. I ordered a Club sandwich with no bacon. The toast was old and there was bacon. Really really disappointed.

It's amazing how being on the second floor shuts out the noise from Broadway and allows you to have a great meal. This was our second trip to the steak house and again it did not disappoint. Steaks were cooked to perfection and the sides were amazing. Merchants is always a great choice when in Nashville!

The restaurant should be ashamed of themselves. We were charged for liquor the restaurant doesn’t even have in stock and served a lesser version of the liquor. The manager refused to accept responsibility. Classic bait and switch. Totally disgusting behavior and I would never, in a million years, recommend this place. This manager should be fired.
