Great meal. Great drinks! Win win!
Outstanding food. It was perfect and delicious. Highly recommend.
Great meal and service
Excellent brunch and lunch menu. All 3 ordered something different and we were all very pleased with our meals. Very intimate dining only adds to the experience. Intend to return when we are back in town to try other items that looked yummy. Would highly recommend.
Lovely as usual and just as delicious!!!
We came for brunch on Sunday and it did not disappoint. It is so lovely they have valet parking that is on site (free) so you don’t have to worry about where to park. Our reservation was at 10 and we got seated about 10 minutes after that, which was great. Our server was great and so was the food. It is slightly loud since it is a smaller restaurant but it was still easy to talk to those at the table.
Birthday dinner with friends
Great food and drinks accompanied by wonderful and personal service. Will go again!
Outstanding brunch/lunch experience. Variety of menu selections with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Exemplary service even with a very full house.
This place was amazing! We went 2 days in a row. Heuvos Tostada was so good. Had the eggs benedict the second day. Can’t go wrong. I don’t like grits but theirs were delicious!! Great service!
Dale was a terrific waiter!!! Thank you for a memorable evening!
Great service and drinks and food! Loved the sea bass special and friends love the veal 3 ways and trout.
A very nice surprise recommended to us by the concierge at our hotel. Excellent food.
Our server noticed very small details. The menu was quite interesting and the entree's amazing! Feels like a "local diamond"
We selected this restaurant based on other reviews and it did not disappoint. The food was amazing and the service was outstanding. Our waiter, Herman (I believe was his name) was attentive and friendly and assisted us in deciding on menu choices as everything sounded amazing. The restaurant is unremarkable from the outside, but oh my goodness, the food was perfectly prepared and unique, and even the coffee after dinner was amazing. The creme brulee was out of this world. I definitely recommend this restaurant!
Black grouper??? I ordered this as my entree. The fish was mushy, paper thin and was the consistency of a catfish filet. I asked the waiter if it was actually grouper and was told it was it was a thin cut. I've never heard of a horizontal thin cut of grouper. if so, the grouper filet was undersized and should not have been available for sale. The Julia Childs recipe gimmick won't last long for this establishment.
Fantastic service and ambience, mostly great food. (Salads, apps, and chicken entree all delicious. Scallop entree was ok but bland).
Excellent service and good food. Would recommend if you are in Nashville.
While the service was top notch, and the ambiance was quiet, the food was just meh. For the price point, I didn't want to find three shells in my crab cakes and have hummus that was the consistency of play-doh.
We go to Midtown for birthdays, anniversaries, out-of-town guests. We always have great service and food. We feel welcomed and never rushed. Thanks for another wonderful evening!
Excellent brunch! Looking forward to going back for dinner.
Good was great. Definitely small place with a lot of people packed in but overall a great experience.
First trip to Nashville, hoping for a great brunch. Hate to review unfavorably but the food was, pure and simple, a big disappointment. Combine that with the very dirty restaurant, especially the bathroom, soo dirty! decided to let others know, hence the review.
I had the salad with pepper jelly vinaigrette and shrimp and grits. Everything was divine including the biscuits.
Service and food were top notch!
Perfect… artichoke/lemon soup was excellent!
Was able to get in right away. Service was exceptional and food was superb.
Disappointed in food quality and price. Not what I expected.
We were celebrating our daughters birthday. We enjoyed the shrimp and grits and sea bass. Our waiter was outstanding and we will definitely be back again soon!
Very disappointing. Appetizer (Brussels Sprouts) not served hot. Store-bought packaged grated Parmesan thrown on top. A margarita that was terrible - my wife couldn't drink it. My entree (angel hair pasta w/ shrimp, mushrooms, green onions) was served just barely warm (again not hot) with (again) more store-bought packaged grated Parmesan cheese thrown on top. And bland. I took 2 bites and gave up on it. 2 beers had been ordered and took so long to serve that the waiter comped them. Waiter never checked to see how we were doing (not good!), and only stopped by to quick drop off a small cup of... grated store-bought Parmesan cheese!! to the table. Not asked for, not wanted. They didn't charge me for my entree or the 2 beers, but that doesn't make up for an unsatisfying meal. Only highlight: free shuttle bus service to downtown. (I would have gladly traded for an Uber and a good meal).
Relaxing and efficient!
This was my third time eating there and food and service were great. The staff was friendly and courteous. We had a 10:30 reservation and we were seated at 10:30 even though the restaurant was packed. Would definitely go back next time I’m in Nashville.
9:15 reservations, sat at 9:47.
Very busy and we noticed people were finished, but sat and chatted. People should know restaurants need to turn tables.
Very fun experience, however.
Our waiter terrific! Food fabulous. Visiting Banderbikt from Los Angeles.
Would go back again!!
Portions small. Food eh. On top of each other. Not sure why this is a “hot spot” in Nashville. Small menu. Staff not friendly
10/10 would recommend! Great service, delicious food.
First visit was very satisfying. The menu offered a good selection of specials and regular entries
Great food and good service. Shrimp & grits and the pork tenderloin were excellent.
Really a very good selection from the appetizers to the entrees. I had a hard time selecting what to choose so I picked out four entrees and asked the waiter to pick out one for me….shrimp and grits… awesome choice. We liked the meal and service so much we rebooked after dinner for this Friday evening. Out of 5 stars, I give it a 10!
