Excellent dinner music. Oracle Blue was great but you could also have a dinner conversation. Great food, service and atmosphere.
The band was amazing most of the food was amazing, just one steak that tasted a little like the gas from the grill.
The food, atmosphere, and entertainment is first rate. Erik Blue is an outstanding singer and musician. We enjoyed brunch immensely.
Favorite restaurant in Nashville. Great scenery and music
Prefect date night
Great experience all around. Loved the music and the vibe!
Our server was on point every time. Our drinks and wine as well as food and dessert were all very tasty. Sea bass and scallops both were excellent. The live music was so much fun. We will be back!
Food was great! A bit high.
Music very good! All players were fantastic. ( the lead singer had not shown up by the time we left so it’s an unknown.
A really great experience. Food,service, and the live music. We loved it.
Everything was enjoyable. Food. Service and entertainment.
The musicians were outstanding! I would compare to Nora Jones talent and style.
Logan was awesome. Band was entertaining and good was great.
Celebrating my moms birthday! Great night!
Sambuca was the best restaurant we’ve gone to in Nashville so far.
Fabulous ambiance and outstanding service!! Live music was icing on the cake!
Food was decent
Music was decent
Ambience was okay but couldn’t hear over the band.
Not worth the money I spent for food and drinks.
No desire to go back
My husband and I enjoyed celebrating our anniversary…with plenty of laughs, great music and delectable food.
The waiter was very attentive and always came back to see if we needed anything,
The food was good, The music was great, Carl Stewart Band,
Awesome experience. Live music, great food and service. Highly recommend.
Our first time here to Sambuca for my boyfriends birthday. He got the ribeye and I got the scallops. Best steak and scallops we’ve ever had! Tyler provided us with amazing service and was very personable. Visiting next time we would definitely stop by again!
Great good with amazing live music! One of my favorite experiences in Nashville!
Absolutely AMAZING. The food, service, and band were outstanding. Everyone needs to go here and try it out!
Food and service were wonderful. Music was fantastic---not a single country song and not so loud that we couldn't carry on a conversation!
It was great. Been a awhile since we ate there. The live music was perfect and food was great along with the service! Will be back
The food and service was outstanding. The music and atmosphere was also super enjoyable. A hidden gem outside of downtown Nashville
Servers were great and the food excellent. The bad that they had was very good to listen to
Loved it! Will be back!
3 out of 4 of us loved our meals! The snapper etouffee was excellent. The shrimp and crab linguine was the best I have ever had. The steak was cooked to perfection and tasty. The only complaint was with the salmon a bit plain but still good. The live music was super and the whole experience was a upscale supper club feel. We had a great dinner
We were sat right next to the stage which while the music delightful, was a little loud for conversation
We loved the food, the atmosphere, and the live music. It was a treat.
My waiter Garret was great\t for my birthday I love him.
One of my favorite places for dinner, only thing is ( and it’s not the restaurant’s fault) is there is a shortage of staff so the food took forever to come out and the waiter was tied up. That was due to covid. Food has always been nothing short of delicious. Atmosphere is lovely and soothing with live entertainment. Highly recommend but just be patient during these times. Their sea bass is the best
It is ok to see music live but the audience are not such a enthusiastic to listen. Need to take live charge to just let enter whom interested in music. Then reduce food & drink price a little bit reasonable. I like this place so I really it become one of favorite live bar like Rudy’s. I will be back soon.
I’m the ambiance was perfect. My waitress was amazing!! I went for brunch. The next time will be for dinner.
Excellent service, food was terrific. The entertainment was an unexpected treat. But there was a $3 entertainment charge per person. We had no problem paying it but it would have been nice if we were told about the fee rather than just seeing it show up on the bill. We would still go back and we will recommend Sambuca. It was a wonderful experience.
As always, great service thanks Robbie, food was excellent and drinks good as well
We are visiting and we’re blown away by the staff, food, and live music. Amazing time!
The music was incredible and the sound is almost always just the right level. Food was good as usual just a little disappointed that my entrée was cold.
Perfect place for a date night. The food & music set an atmosphere for relaxing conversation. The drink selection was wonderful too!
Sambuca was everything it was said to be. The food was phenomenal and the service was friendly and attentive. The spicy blueberry margarita was one of the best margaritas I have ever had, and the 1/2 price happy hour is one of the best deals around.
The music was excellent and while loud-ish, it wasn’t overbearing.
We will definitely be back!
