We then waited another 15 minutes for our table and approximately another 15 minutes after that to get our drink order in. The manager offered to comp an appetizer for the reservation mix up. We then waited another 15 minutes to get our drinks. The drinks were sub par and then all of the food came out together. Appetizers and main course. When the bill came they had charged us for both appetizers. So we were once again inconvenienced by having to request the correction on our bill. I had requested soda water to try to make my cocktail drinkable and it didn’t come until we were getting up to leave and after the bill had been paid. My husband had the oyster appetizer and stopped at one. I absolutely love Nama and if you asked me my favorite restaurant in Knoxville, Nama is always at the top. I am truly disappointed and saddened that this is the new normal.

The sushi wasn't rolled tight enough and when it was dipped in sauce it easily fell apart. My wife and I sat at a booth which had obviously been heavily used and needed to be repaired. The vinyl seat was torn and no longer provided much comfort in the padding. All-in-all, the bang for the buck just wasn't there. Not really sure if we would go back.

And going on a Wednesday with the extended Happy Hour is awesome. Service was great. Only thing negative is the bathroom cleanliness was lacking, and the booths are getting worn down and less comfortable.

We had reservations and were seated immediately. We sat at our table for a while and no one came to take our order. There was a table that was seated way after us and they already had their order taken. I asked the server if she knew who our waitress was. Couple minutes later a young girl came to our table to take our drink and food order. She comes back saying we are out of the beer. Fine, we will order another one. Our meal came out and my husbands order was wrong. Someone different fixed it for us. At this point we still don’t have our beer. It’s been sitting on the bar and our waitress is no where to be found. Never came back to see if we needed anything. I understand there are staffing problems everywhere and we are always patient with that but she did not want to be there and it was very obvious. I also was watching her to see if she had a lot of tables. She only had ours and one more. There are too many other choices of places to eat in Market Square to feel like we were a bother to place an order.

Someone pretended to be us and took our reservation and table as the restaurant was fully booked and had a wait for tables. When this was discovered, the hostess let the manager know who moved the frauds out of our booth. Thank you. The USA needs to hire the Nama manager to deal with North Korea and Putin! The food and service is always excellent and we always try to go on our trips to Knoxville. Cocktails are also worthy and parking is so easy at the garage behind the restaurant.

They seated us very quickly and the service was excellent. They have increased their beer selection and the draft beer was very cold. All around an excellent experience.

Ert few salmon choices and only a couple of tuna. Almost all fell apart when dipped.

Although service was so quick I was in an out in 45 mins for a 2 course meal. Possibly a little rushed, although as I was dining alone (away on business) I was quite grateful for that!

And it was dead, so they didn’t have customers as an excuse.
