Ordered food and it took 75 minutes to arrive. When it did, it was cold. Wait staff had to be flagged down to get drink refills. Even then, we were only able to get one refill during that timeframe.

Awful, we were told that they don’t take reservations on weekends and had to find a seat or wait. Then at the end someone asked for our name yo fill open table. Ridiculous

We made a reservation for 9, and our table was only set for 6. We waited a bit for them to reset something new, where we learned there are no servers and we have to order at the bar. The bar was extremely slow, and it took over 90 minutes for us to get our food. Expectations were just improperly set and unfortunately left us finding more and more setbacks throughout the evening.

They did not have waitresses in the bar area so it was just bartenders working the whole floor.

When we showed up for our reservation they had a couple of tables for us to choose from. We chose to sit on the rooftop next to the bar. The bartender comes over and informs us she is the only one their and we would have to order for bar service instead of a dine in experience. We also continuously had to remind her of things we had ordered but she had forgot. It was not the servers fault as there was a large crowd that came in right after us. But everyone had reservations and the place was not properly staffed. And the menu had a couple errors on it that I had noticed. Other than that it was a great place with great food.

We had a diff understanding the type of restaurant/bar it was from pics etc. waitress was nice, apps were served with food didn’t like that and tip was added to bills but not on second copy as if were added in fact said not added causing most to double tip. It was not what we were looking for but for bar food it was cooked well and had great flavors. They actually said in open table we didn’t come to reservation which was annoying as well. We were there all 20 of us

The service was very bad. It was hard to get a servers attention and one of the servers put someone else’s food and drinks on my tab. Also the auto moat ic 20% tip on our bill should be specified bc I added an addition tip not knowing and the service did not deserve a more than a 20% tip.

Went there for a bachelorette party and made a reservation back in March. When we got there, they said they weren’t doing reservations which was kind of annoying. Why have it available then? We were able to find a table but the food wasn’t delivered for 2 hours and not all at once. One section got their dinner first and we didn’t get ours until after the girls had eaten. When we finally got our food delivered, the bar tender messed up the order and forgot to add a girls meal. She was also very rude and told us we had to pay for it… I’m not sure why when we had ordered and she was the one that messed it up.

I would not recommend eating here. Please also avoid making a reservation through this app. It’s a fun place to drink but other than that I give it a 1 star.

We went early evening on a very rainy day! We wanted to try the Nashville Hot Chicken. It did not disappoint! The bar tender was our waitress. She was really nice! We even bought a tee shirt to commemorate our night.

We went for Sunday Brunch on our last day in Nashville. It was raining, so our intention to sit rooftop was interrupted, but did not stop staff from making it a great time. The bar was a bit under stocked, assuming due to the nights before, but we found something to enjoy! The chicken and biscuits were outstanding!

Service was absolutely terrible. We had a new server and tried to be understanding but she never came back to refill drinks. After an hour of waiting for food I went to ask about our food, she was checking her phone and our food had been ready and sitting waiting for who knows how long. Cool spot, nice rooftop, not at all crowded, service just did not care about anyone. I would not go back here for a meal unless I was not in a hurry or wanting warm food.

DO NOT GO HERE!!!!! EVERY OTHER BAR ON BROADWAY WOULD BE A BETTER CHOICE!!!!!Showed up for reservation and we were told to go up to the roof. We exited elevator and the was what appeared to be a hostess stand. Waited for several minutes for someone to come address us. Then we tried to call over one of the waitresses, we were ignored. Finally just sat ourselves out on the patio area. Waited 15 minutes and no one came to take even a drink order. Went onto 5 other bars on Broadway and even though all were busy, we were treated much better than we were here.

Made a reservation to eat there and once my party of 7 got there, there wasn’t a hostess in sight. I approached the bar to ask a bartender how to be seated and I was told to just find a table and then order at the bar. The only tables available were on the roof and it was windy. We were excited to be there but really disappointed in the service. We ended up leaving.

This was the WORST service I’ve ever experienced. We had reserved a table for a bachelorette party and confirmed in advance. When we got there, we had to talk to four different people just for the woman to tell us that they don’t do reservations and if we could find a table we could have it, but good luck. They said they were too busy to get a manager and basically turned us away. Why have reservations on your site if you’re 1.) not going to take them and 2.) be SO RUDE to customers

We, a party of 2, arrived on a Saturday after booking a 1:00 reservation. No hostess checked us in and we seated ourselves on the third floor outdoor patio. Nobody served us for about 20 minutes. We had to go order drinks at the bar. Drinks came and we placed food orders with the waitress. We waited forty minutes for our appetizer (pulled pork egg rolls which were delicious!). Our main course never came out. In total we waited TWO HOURS. When we went to ask at the bar if they had any idea where food was, they simply said “sorry, we’re really busy.” We cancelled the food order and then left. Never even got to try. Service was terrible. And they automatically charged 20% gratuity! Insane!
CDC guidelines are not followed by staff and therefore not enforced with patrons. Would not recommend if you are looking for a place to eat and enjoy the ambiance.

Do not book this restaurant for a meal. We arrived with a party of 7 at for an 8pm reservation. There was a line out the door and I showed the girl at the door our reservation, and she said they don't take reservations at 8pm.
I had to argue with her for several minutes to even let us in the door without waiting in a one hour line. We sat down and never had a server. We asked at the bar and they said we could order food at the bar and take it to a table. The bar was packed and it took us an hour to get drinks and food. This was not even close to the dining experience we were hoping for.

We liked everything about this place until they kicked out our whole bachelor party after one of us stumbled once when at the bar. They didn’t mind over serving us and taking about $800-$1000 from us though at the bar prior to getting kicked out though.

You’d think they would just start giving us water since we were there having a good time and spending money for 5 hours. Not escort 6 of us out.

Made reservations for 4 people at 5pm (the last table available). We arrived, ID's checked, and were sent up an elevator -to the wrong floor. After finding someone to ask we were sent to the correct floor where there were no customers, only people cleaning tables. We were never acknowledged, and decided to take our chances elsewhere. The Stillery had tables available and great food!
