    The main reason I went there was to see and hear my friend, Mike, do his tribute to Frank Sinatra. Not only was he outstanding, the atmosphere was festively Christmas, the drinks were very good, and the ambiance was perfect for entertaining friends and significant others.

    The Old Time Christmas Show was fantastic. So fun. The Sinatra guy, Michael Sharpe, was spot on with the vocals and mingled in the crowd and sang to each guest. He personally met everyone and personalized the show into more of an experience. Great way to celebrate the start of the Christmas season. The holiday cocktails were very good and the small bites superb.

    Thanksgiving dinner was amazing! It was our first time here and the first time we dined out for TG. And Tenn did not disappointed. The staff were friendly and attentive. The food was served family style for the holiday which was very nice. We were able to order more of anything we liked. But there so many choices we didn’t have to do so. Everything was amazing, but the goat cheese topped salad, citrus turkey and pomegranate cranberries were the biggest hits. Simply outstanding. Very creative, well prepared twist on holidays staples. Chef outdid herself with this menu! The drinks were festive and they had nice reasonably priced wine options and cocktails. Dessert was good, too, but took a second place to the dinner which was wonderful.

    We made reservations for Thanksgiving dinner. The price was higher per person than I usually spend but everything was included so I thought,” Let’s try it” . We are sooo glad we did! The food was beautifully presented but, best of all, delicious! The waiter was smiling and pleasant…and attentive. We lacked for nothing. To top it off they have free valet parking for two hours. Perfect meal.

    We were in Nashville for Thanksgiving and I wanted a nice place for our family to celebrate. I found TENN highly reviewed online and paid the prepaid price for the special Thanksgiving dinner. It was beyond my expectations. We found my father dead on three months ago, and this was going to be a really painful day. But TENN was so warm and perfectly decorated - it was a magical experience. It may be one of my favorite Thanksgiving dinners ever - the cloverleaf rolls with orange zest, the moist Turkey, salad, sweet potatoes - EVERYTHING was delicious.

    Ok so OpenTable had us reserved for a time that the restaurant was actually closed. However A wonderful woman there named Kia made our day. She gave us coffee and snacks and she was just outstanding. The place was gorgeous and had great photo ops there. The staff was unbelievable sweet and the food was yummy. Over all we had a splendid time!!

    It is more of a coffee shop so I wouldn’t go for dinner or a true group get together or a date night because it’s extremely small. If you need a place to work during the day or even in the evening and you’re near that hotel or staying in that hotel it’s a decent place. Unfortunately the service was not good so that did not help the experience.

    The Old Time Christmas show was incredible. The Sinatra singer, Michael Sharpe, was over the top! He sang to every audience member, met every single person during the break and engaged all guests in the show. I’ve never seen so many happy people! The bartenders and service are great. The holiday cocktails and small bites are outstanding. This show ranks 25 on a 10 point scale! The old time Christmas spirit is alive and swinging at the Holston House. Do not miss it!

    We started in the bar upstairs and it was great! The downstairs restaurant cannot be compared with the upstairs bar. The restaurant is a little sparse with the feeling of a cafeteria. Although the staff was incredibly kind and helpful the pork chop that was recommended to us by the waiter came out and was mostly fat. We will continue to frequent the bar but maybe one more chance for the restaurant.

    Was really looking forward to trying this restaurant. Unfortunately, we never got to eat. We waited for 10-15 minutes before anyone checked in with us. We were told our table wasn’t ready yet and it would be 15-20 minutes. After 45 minutes, I checked in again. At this point, we were provided with drinks, which was nice. We were told it shouldn’t be too much longer. After another 45 minutes, we chose to leave (total of a 1.5 hour wait). The system should not have let me make a reservation if they didn’t have space and I shouldn’t have had to keep checking on our reservation. So, disappointing experience all around.

    I think they were severely understaffed. Everyone was so nice and trying really hard but they didn't have enough staff to clean tables. With a 730 reservation we were seated at 805 only because our table could not be cleaned. The delays continued. Food was fine. If they could staff up I’m sure it would be a nice place

    First time eating there. Treated my sister who had flown into BNA to brunch. Had a cappuccino and the avocado toast and both were excellent. My 9 year old son had the jam French toast which was good but would recommend without the coffee glaze for kids or non-coffee drinkers. My sister had the Cathead biscuit which was also delicious. All in all very good. If not staying at the hotel, I would suggest finding somewhere else to park rather than the lot across the street which was outrageous. It cost us $21 for 1.5 hours.

    We understand short staffing issues, but we were initially seated in wrong section, then once we got to our reserved spot, it took over 15 minutes to be waited on. I tried ordering directly from the bar, but they told me to be seated and someone would be with us shortly. We just got appetizers which were decent, and drinks which were very good but overpriced for what they were. Overall a decent experience, but not something I’d pay $20/person to reserve a spot for again. The “show” by the Sanderson sisters was enjoyable!

    Small, quaint space inside the Holston Hotel. Great option before an event at Bridgestone. The roasted grape and Bleu Gouda salad was outstanding. A little pricey for portions but not a bad value for downtown Nash.

    We went for the Hocus Pocus show and the ladies were excellent! They stayed in character so well, it made the experience so fun! They also allotted time for pictures at the end! Drinks were delicious and on theme! Charcuterie board was delicious! Wait staff and bartenders were are friendly and great with recommendations! The bar was decorated for Halloween very classy, yet spooky! We had a wonderful time!

    The food was just ok…not worth the price. The people were nice. The bar was like a locals hangout type of place. Which is nice for happy hour, but it was marketed as a place to eat for a special occasion, and nothing seemed unique or special about the place. Again the people are nice, but for the price I don’t think it is worth it.

    We waited several minutes at the host stand to be greeted, and several more to be seated while our table was set even though I made a reservation and it was confirmed via text a few hours before. The service was poor and slow. Appetizers and entrees were brought out all at the same time, which was frustrating 1. Because it happened, and 2. Because they didn’t seem to know why or how it happened. The ambiance is more akin to a continental breakfast at a Holiday Inn rather than a mid-level restaurant at a nice, downtown Nashville hotel. (The experience/service at the connected pop-up Hocus Pocus bar upstairs was even more abysmal.)

    I wish I had taken pics, because the presentation was a great as the food. I had the yogurt, with Pineapple Jam that added the perfect balance of sweet and savory. Our entire party raved about their selections. The avocado toast was a hit too! What made TENN the perfect selection was the staff, both the hostess and the server. They were fantastic! We were constantly having to adjust our numbers and they took it in stride and could not have been more welcoming and accomodating. Your staff can kill your business or it can help...these folks were great and I will definitely be back...and I am local!

    I went to TENN for a Hocus Pocus themed event. The performers were incredible. They were talented and engaging and certainly the best part of the experience. The service was a mess. We received the wrong menus upon entering so everything we ordered wasn't available, however the server didn't seem to know that. Then, once she realized it, we were able to put in orders for the right food. It was clear that they were understaffed, the server had no clue what was going on and there was no coordination. The server forgot several things and each time she came to the table we had to remind her about what was going on. The food was fine, but the drink I ordered was very weak. Terrible experience in terms of the restaurant.
