Do not visit. Angelia D was our server. She messed up the entire order. Took us 45 minutes to get our food. Food just ok, prices are not worth service and food quality. Went for breakfast. Even the mimosas were bad. Skip this place.

It's a really cool looking place with a really limited menu. As a dad, I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed.

Hope this was a bad night. Server was working very hard but had too many tables. Waited 10 min to be noticed for seating. Drink order was efficient but then 1 hr 15 min for food. Surprised because reviews and word of mouth recommendations were great . No management seemed to be present. Waiter did comp drinks, and we did not complain so he knew something was up with the experience. Would not recommend or return.

The Diner is great for a casual brunch with friends. Our server was attentive and friendly. I got the hot chicken and biscuits, and everyone else at my table had the hot chicken and waffles. I liked my food, but I'll probably try something different next time I come. I did indulge and get the Molten Lava Cake with ice cream, and that was excellent - then again, The Diner is always good for dessert. Anyway, whether you're a Nashville native or visiting, this is a great spot for a meal, especially if you have a big group! Masks are required until you get to your table, so please, stay safe, protect yourself and others!

My husband and I made dinner reservations for Valentine's Day and had a mediocre experience. I am a restaurant server myself, so I do understand slow evenings, but unfortunately the staff made our night less than romantic...we were hoping to have an interactive server who made us feel at home and would recommend good eats and drinks, etc.

Our server didn't seem very interested at all in serving us, and as soon as they found we weren't getting a third round of drinks, left for quite a while and didn't return until the hostess very loudly let him know our table was finished.

Overall, the food was okay, but very overpriced. The drinks had no prices on the menu and the atmosphere was very awkward, since the music was very quiet and the entire kitchen staff was sitting 10 feet from our table talking loudly the entire time.

Unfortunately this is not like the great experience I had here several months ago, so I'm not sure whether to recommend this place or say maybe it needs more time to get better.

The food was bland - actually horrible food.
There were very few guest in the entire restaurant yet we had poor service.
It was very cold in the restaurant.
This was our first time to the Diner & we most certainly will not be returning.
