The Chef and I is built on a love story. That’s why it works. We serve innovative cuisine in a fun environment.
Folks can choose to order off the menu or do a chef’s tasting seven days a week.
CHEF’S TASTING:
We offer a chef’s tasting at two levels: five or seven courses; a culinary experience comprised of what’s in season and what the chefs are inspired to share with you that day.
REGULAR MENUS:
Additionally, we offer regular menus for lunch, brunch, dinner, and happy hour. Executive Chef Chris Rains and his staff carefully curate these menus seasonally.
Counter (Show Kitchen) seating is limited and generally requires a reservation. If you desire Counter (Show Kitchen) seating, please select "counter" seating when you make your reservation.
We have a 24-hour cancellation policy. Any reservations cancelled within 24 hours of the reservation date/time is subject to a $20 per seat charge.

It was great! Waiter was very good. Drinks were a little slow but didn’t detract from the experience. Waiter suggested a custom gin cocktail he had recently had added to the menu and it was great

Fantastic,food was outstanding, the wait staff was great right down to the vallet. The lobster bisque was delicious and the shrimp and lobster pasta dish was phenomenal. We will be regulars when we come back to Nashville.

34th wedding anniversary! In a word: Fabulous! Had the good fortune to be seated in front of Chef Chris as he prepared our meals. To the Chef and staff, thank you for making our anniversary so special!

You must sit at the chefs table to get the full experience. My husband’s birthday and he wasn’t disappointed. He has the chefs tasting and found it to be adventurous and tasty. I had a few of the shareables and they were ok. Granted, I have a limited number of things I can eat. My favorite part of the meal was the amazing Zinfandel and bread pudding. Melissa our server was friendly and attentive. Great service.

This is hands down the best restaurant in Nashville. I always order the 7 course tasting menu and they wow me every time. Tonight each course got better and better. Friendly staff and amazing food, what more do you want from a restaurant. Tonight all the courses were amazing, but the
