    Service was so slow it took 30 mins to get a coffee then I had to get up and get my own sugar despite asking for it. The food when arrived was cold, a basic breakfast took approximately 50 mins to arrive. We were sat by an open window that they couldn’t close so they had to move us as it was chilly and breezy. Overall a very poor experience. Would recommend or go back.

    We got placed on the 5th floor right by the open garage door window, and it was a beautiful evening! We loved the view. Our food and drinks were prepared just as we asked and really quickly! We enjoyed our night out here. It was calm in a chaotic Saturday night in Nashville.

    A server was very attentive and conversational. Food was very good. We were on the 4th floor and sat at a window table. The weather was perfect so we were very glad that the windows were open. The party on the streets was a little loud, but a lot of fun (it is Nashville after all).

    The food wasn’t anything worth writing home about, however it was budget friendly. They charged a “service fee” which was insane considering you also have to tip. The staff was friendly

    It was a good place for a Bachelorette Brunch but it wasn't overwhelmingly amazing. I was a little disappointed if I'm being completely honest. The food was good and the drinks were good (pretty strong), but our service was a little underwhelming. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. But overall service wasn't what I anticipated. We had to ask a lot to get what we needed. We didn't receive silverware until we asked for it after food was placed in front of us. We did order drinks but had to ask for more water while eating. And we had to ask our waiter to re-check someone's bill because their change (paid in cash) wasn't correct. The food was good, but it isn't somewhere that I would particularly want to go back to.

    Our first server was extremely rude and lied to us multiple times. Second server did an excellent job. Was very frustrating because they were out of ALL steaks and also multiple other items. Basically left us able to get a cheeseburger or pasta.

    We had a very good experience. Our server was personable, attentive, and kind. Our food was very good, came out quickly, and was hot. My only concern was that the first drink I ordered seemed a bit "off" but I drank it anyhow. No complaints really. I do enjoy this place!

    We went for Mothers Day. The food was good. I had the shrink and grits and I t was amazing. We were seated in the 5th floor and the view was great! Our server was not very attentive and my niece’s food was left off and had to wait while we all were eating. Other than that it was great.

    Took my wife and mom out for Mother’s Day breakfast, and was pleasantly surprised by this place. Interesting menu, food tasted great, and relaxed atmosphere was perfect for a casual get together. Not expensive at all either. Only negative was the parking rates at the nearby garage - need to arrive earlier and find a street parking spot. Otherwise, was a great start to the day!

    The food was very good. The fried chicken on the salad was delicious, moist, and a very large portion. The noise from the street was a bit loud. This is an excellent pre-concert venue that I’ll continue to visit.

    The only issue we had was they did not have our wine we ordered in stock, but they did substitute for the house wine. Server was friendly and responsive. The person at the front desk kept coming around to check if we were close to finishing which was a little concerning thinking we were taking too long. Excellent food though!
