    We were not happy with the service at all. The waitress was not pleasant. She didn't even ask me if I wanted a box for my leftover food. She never took away our plates. The floor had old food on it that we had to ask for it to be taken away. Unfortunately we were not impressed.

    We had 9 people in our group, and the Diner accommodated us really well! It's a really cute atmosphere with great views of the downtown. I got the spicy chicken and waffles and thought it was wonderful! It's pretty spicy so be ware if you are sensitive to spice. We all liked the food, enjoyed the ambiance, and thought it was a wonderful location. Great service as well. Highly recommend.

    My friends and I went here for dinner while in Nashville. It wasn't anything exceptional and quite literally the definition of mid. The room we ate in was nice because we had the whole thing to ourselves. However, the food, drinks, and service were not impressive and the restaurant itself was freezing cold. I would not go back.

    This was a welcomed break from the loud, party atmosphere in Nashville. Food was really good and the view was spectacular. We were seated inside, but in an enclosed porch setting which was really pretty. You must visit the bar!

    The restaurant atmosphere was nice. The food had way to much Pepper the mashed potatoes had clumps of pepper. The gumbo was over peppered having lived in Louisiana I don’t mind spice but this was over done. Our food came out in like 5 mins total time in restaurant was 22 mins.

    Went for breakfast with a group of 5 and we were seated on the first floor level. The food was average not much better than an airport breakfast except for the biscuits which were delicious. Service was fair not very attentive some items didn’t come out with our order had to ask a few times. Would not recommend going here

    Got the chicken parm. Usually safe..sauce was like tomato paste with red pepper flakes. Spicy and bland at the same time. Chicken was cardboard thin with slices of muenster cheese on top. Terrible meal.

    Great location, pretty lame and therefore overpriced food. Buffalo wings as an appetizer tasted like basic freezer fare, chewy and undersauced. Pasta was on par with a Marie Callender's frozen dinner. I won't be back to spend $85 on food that is mediocre at best.

We really enjoyed it, the service was great, the mimosas were tasty and refreshing and the food is just what we needed after a long night at the honky tonks! I would definitely recommend, especially for a bigger group. We got the big booth of the corner of the main floor and it was perfect for 8 of us. Thank you, The Diner!

    My husband and I wanted a nice meal and not in a place where a band was blasting in our ear after a heavy and FUN night on Broadway. The Diner was it! We made our reservations and were seated right away on the 5th floor with spectacular views of the skyline and a beautiful breeze. It was consistently busy during our visit but the music and noise level was perfect with the sounds of the city. The food was delicious and we even opted for dessert which we never do. We were in no hurry to leave and enjoyed our last night in Nashville. Great food, service and ambience!

    A terrible experience both from service and food perspective. Party of five with 6:30pm reservation. Drinks were overpriced, sweet, not made correctly and very little alcohol in them. Three ordered gumbo, it arrived timely, was good but not great. Than we waited and waited for food. Large tables of 12 or more around us received food and finished eating before our food arrived. Waitress was sweet but clearly overwhelmed. She told us they had a large party in another room the kitchen was taking care of. That may in part be true but tables all around us were served and many who arrived after us. Our food arrived 90 minutes after ordering and clearly sat in the window a significant amount of time as it was cold and inedible. Asked for a manager will not post her name was very rude to us. Asked for another manager higher up and she said there was none and would not let us be rude in front of her servers. We continually told server we did not blame her for the kitchen. Waitress must not have felt the same and said she would send another manager. A manager named Zack arrived and could not have been nicer or more understanding. This is a diner and we didn’t expect fine dining but we did expect good service and food. Too many restaurants in Nashville to ever go back. My group can not recommend it but we will say Zack was outstanding

    Superb brunch boite with a unique theme on each floor. 5th floor brunch was great. The waffle sliders were fantastic and very filling. My wife had a traditional waffle and loved it. The food was fresh and delicious BUT it’s the best cop of coffee we found in Nashville.
