Went for dad's 50th. All the food was out of this world!!!!
Nice ambiance but the food is subpar
I made a reservation in advance to eat before going out to the theatre. We showed up about 25 minutes late because of traffic/highway closure. They didn't make any issue of it and were able to seat us right away. The restaurant has a very nice look that works well for a date night, anniversary, or other special occasion and the upper levels offer an open air area that is both comfortable and offers a view. The food was very good, but a little pricier than I expected since they were rated as $. Well worth the extra little but though. The service could have been a bit better as we rarely saw our server and he didn't refill my water or ask if I wanted another drink until I was asking for the bill. All in all it was quite happy with the experience and food was worth checking out if you are in the area.
Phenomenal food, drinks, and service!
Sambuca was fantastic. I cant wait to go back again. The ambiance, music, service was amazing. Cory was an excellent server. His recommendations were spot on.
Arranged to propose to my girlfriend there. The staff and band were very cooperative and helped make the night extremely special. She was completely surprised and it was a perfect evening!
Good food good drinks good service
Such a fun place for a group dinner! The live music is always amazing and the food is reasonably priced and delicious. I would definitely recommend to a friend.
Awesome restaurant offering a warm and inviting setting. Great place for to meet friends for dinner or to enjoy a drink at the bar. Highly recommended! Also, the waitress who served us did a fantastic job taking care of table!
We came to Nashville with a group of 10 people from Northwest Indiana. We were all very pleased with our first trip to Sambuca and would definitely eat here again the next time we come to town. Our server was so knowledgeable of the menu and ingredients in every dish. The ambiance was good and our food was Exceptional!! Even our token vegetation was pleased and that’s not always easy. Great work Sambuca!
We had a great time here on a Thursday night! There was live music, great food, and our server was impeccable! Excellent service. Believe his name was Matt R.!
This was a highlight on my week long business trip in Nashville. We hosted business dinners each night and wanted a place we could wear jeans the last night. The atmosphere was perfect, the food and adult beverages were excellent, the live music was top notch but Emerson our server made the entire night. He was superb. He may be the best server I have ever had. I highly recommend enjoying at least meal here.
The ambiance here was amazing! We loved the restaurant itself and the music was mellow and perfect background music (we could still hear each other). We were celebrating anniversaries and they came out with a few different desserts with candles to celebrate (there were 10 of us). The drinks were delicious as was the food....yum!!! It was the perfect place to celebrate our anniversaries and for our last night in Nashville.
We had a party of 12 for brunch. None of us were locals and chose the restaurant based on the menu, proximity to our air Bnb and reviews on opentable. Our waiter Jesse was very attentive and helpful with suggesting drinks and entrees. The musicians were good and not overwhelmingly loud, so that you could actually converse with your friends. The food was by far the best brunch we had while in Nashville (and this was our third brunch). Definitely would come back if in Nashville again.
Very energetic atmosphere. The food was wonderful. We really enjoyed the music. Would be on the top of my list for live music in Nashville.
The food was awesome and so was our waitress, she was very informative,non judgmental and provided great suggestions. the environment was romantic with live entertainment which you could still have a conversation with one another.
Great place, theme, and music. Nice date out on a Friday night. Not over crowded and plenty of spaces if your waiting on a table.
The food was bland. We tried ordering more items from the menu and still did not enjoy. I hate to say that I think this restaurant has gone downhill. It would be a good place to grab drinks, but that’s it. I will not dine there again.
We waited 30 minutes to be greeted. Once greeted everything was fine, but that is unacceptable. I had to go to the hostess stand to request service. It really put a damper on the night. The food was ok, the Mac and cheese side is like something off a kids menu, bland and boring and the steak was just fine. We enjoyed our wine and the weather was great outside, besides that it was pretty much a fail.
We had a party of five that all enjoyed the evening. Our food was excellent. The stand outs were the Buca Beignets and shrimp & crab dip. Sambuca is a “Go-To”. We have always had a good experience !
The food was great !!! The service and live music was awesome as well. The sticky toffee bread pudding is a “must have”. I can’t wait to go back.
We were visiting Nashville with another couple, staying in the Gulch area at a VRBO. We were heading to lower Broadway for the evening. We chose this restaurant because it was close to our rental. We were extremely surprised by how nice it was, the variety of menu choices, live music and great drinks!! The open table reservation made it very easy for us!! Great recommendation for the 4 of us!!
Fantastic waitress, scrumptious food and music to boot!!
Great food. Quality service. Nice place to go with family or spouse. Live band. Beautiful ambience.
Excellent food. Excellent service. The love music was perfect. Not too loud to hold a conversation but enough to drown out other people’s conversations. Perfect!
Amazing. The food, the service, and the atmosphere was perfect!!
Good food, good music, vibrant and lively! Would love to visit again.
Took out-of-town friends and they loved everything. The food is always great and the music was too. Mathew was a great waiter. Great wine choices.
Great place. Perfect table for talking and hearing live music
It was wonderful!! I had the filet and it melted in me mouth!! Delicious!! The Scallops were wonderful and the Salmon was great too!! Wonderful service!!!
The food was incredible and service was extremely attentive. Matthew, our server, was exceptional and made sure to make our experience great. We had the Buccaneers Beignets, scallops, and the 3 sides: Brussel sprouts, sweet potatoes and the prosciutto Mac and cheese. HOLY GOODNESS. One of the best restaurants I’ve been to in Nashville!
We met up with some friends at Sambuca. It was wonderful. The food is delicious and the live music was great! I will definitely be back. This is a great spot for a romantic dinner, birthdays, anniversaries, etc.
Excellent prep, had the sea bass . Lived entertainment, jazz singer
Enjoyed our time there!
Always enjoy dinner at Sambuca and know we will have good food, service and music. We will be back.
Amazing drinks and meal with great entertainment! Loved the environment and had an attentive, knowledgeable waiter.
The whole atmosphere was great, my only problem was the Steak had too much fat on it. The meal was awesome and their steak is as good as anyone's
