I love the atmosphere. It's cute and trendy. I love the food as well. Smaller menu, but with some great options. The kids meal was huge! But we greatly appreciated having leftovers in the days following our time there. There's no changing table, so that was a bit tricky. Overall kid friendly and a great trendy area to eat regardless of who is in your party.
Every bite was divine! We had a great experience from start to finish.
My second time dinning at Mockingbird and they do not disappoint. The food and service was wonderful. It was a wonderful night with friends.
The Mockingbird always provides everything we could want in a night out. Fantastic food, amazing service, and sublime ambience are what you will find with every trip to The Mockingbird.
Thank you for the kind words!!! It means the world to us! Hope to see you again!
From the moment we walked in the experience was great. From the host and hostess to the wait staff excellent service. The god was amazing!
Can’t wait to come back!
First of all we had a great waitress and she had a equally great supporting crew. We enjoyed a couple well made Martinis followed by a nice wine with dinner. Cocktail menu also looked creative and we will try one or two next visit. Finally, the food was awesome. Again, very creative choices and flavors and the quantities were not dainty as with many good restaurants. The Mockingbird has made the A-list on our rotation.
Wonderful time with amazing service!
My husband and I visited The Mockingbird for Sunday brunch. The atmosphere was on point. Whoever decorated the place is very talented because it’s gorgeous. Music was great and added the the vibe. Our server was kind and helpful with recommendations. I got the Bubbles in a Bag (I think that’s what it was called) and my husband got the Church Punch to drink. Both were delicious, but I preferred the Church Punch because it reminded me of every baby shower, wedding shower or anniversary party from my childhood. Just needed some of meltaway mints to go with it. We loved the food. Every menu item has a fun, punny name. I had the Taco the Town and would highly recommend if you’re a fan of breakfast tacos. It’s more of a breakfast quesadilla, but close enough. The best part of brunch was the dessert. Banana cream pie (it had a better name, but it escapes me at this point). I feel like we missed out on not getting the Cinnamon Roll because I saw one as we were walking out and it looked AMAZING. I would highly recommend Mockingbird for brunch when in Nashville. We visit the town two of three times a year and like to try different restaurants each time. As we were leaving I told my husband I would go back to this establishment in a heartbeat.
Everything was great, food, atmosphere and service. Server Chris/ Eagle was fabulous. Highly recommend. First time to Nashville and booked solely by reviews,
Did not disappoint! Thanks for a great dinner
Thank you for such a fantastic review! You have made our day! Keep spreading those good vibes ~
Nice atmosphere but unfortunately the food really underwhelmed. I had the hash and my friend got the tots for our brunch outing. Everything sounded delicious, but lacked any flavor. Very disappointing for the price point and there are so many other options for brunch in the area.
Hi Amanda Biskup! We saw your other review about us on other platforms as well, however we thank you for taking the time to write about your experience once again. Girl, We heard ya' loud and clear the first time! LOL! Seriously though, thanks for the visit and we hope you continue to support small and local business. Life is too short for bad vibes and we are sorry you weren't a fan of the food. Best wishes to you!
Delicious food and cool vibe!
This restaurant is very cute and well designed. The concept is great but the execution is poor. The atmosphere is great, but the drinks were lackluster and the food was mostly disappointing and even inedible. We order 6 different things and 4 were not good. The beet salad was great as well as the spinach dip. The mac was sort of strange and cold and the corn dog was so spicy that no one could eat it and that diner had burning lips still the next day. We mostly picked apart most of the plates and much of the food went unfinished. I would not recommend it to a friend despite the instagramable factor.
Yikes! Sorry to hear that the spicy ketchup served with the bratwurst corn dog was.....spicy? Hope your friend has regained senses in her lips since then. Thanks for your visit and for giving us a shot, we wish you and yours the very best in your future culinary adventures. We're bummed you won't recommend us, but we truly hope you still continue to support small and local businesses.
The food was phenomenal but the service wasn’t beer friendly.
The food and drinks for happy hour were good, and the place is super cute.
Thank you for the review! We appreciate it, and will look into your claim. Have a wonderful day!
We love The Mockingbird because of its diverse menu - steak for my husband, vegetarian item for me. It's a go-to place of ours for special occasions!
Thank you for the awesome review, Sara! We appreciate YOU! :)
A wonderful experience with top notch flavors. Excellent evening out
Thank you for your visit and the time you took to write this review. It means the world to us! Hope to see you again soon!
Food is good, drinks are GREAT
Thanks for the love! Keep spreading positivity in this world, it is much appreciated!!
The mockingbird is a must!! Our server Santiago was fun, knowledgeable, and friendly. He recommend the hole in one flavor of the week, pictured here, which was cookies and cream. A knockout starter to our brunch. We had Flock Yes and Taco the Town which were delicious and more! The music, drinks, and food will definitely be why we return. The Mockingbird is a must
Thank you for the love! We are also fans of Santiago! Please visit us again soon!!!
Great birthday celebration with awesome service
I’ve been to the Mockingbird several times and nearly always make that a first stop for new friend groups. Last night was one of those times. I was disappointed by the food quality. I don’t mind paying for a good meal, but last night the quality was poor.
Our order taker was good, but the people who brought out the food must have been focused on something other than service. The service was well below my expectations for the Mockingbird.
The parking lot next to the restaurant charges 8 hours only. When I brought this to the attention of the “greeter” she was already aware. Why would you want your customers to have this experience.
Finally, having dinner at the Mockingbird is a choice. I’m thankful there are other choices in Nashville.
Hi, Sorry we let you down on your recent visit. Bummed to hear that you were frustrated by the parking lot next to our restaurant - it is not owned by us and we can't control what they charge. We do offer $12 parking at Whole Foods for up to 3 hours. We are operated by humans and sometimes we have "off" moments. We do thank you for the patronage and your support of small & local business. We really have had a heck of a year and we hope that in the future you will decide to give us another shot.
What a treat! All 4 of us ordered something different and each of us raved about our food. From the decor, the food, the service, to the fun drink names, it was all a wonderful experience. This restaurant had a warm and casual vibe- making it super fun. All of us are talking about how much we want to go back. In a city with a plethora of good restaurants, Mockingbird stands out as one of the best.
Sandroonie! You have made our day with this review! Thank you for taking the time to spread JOY in these wild times!
I've enjoyed dinner at Mockingbird a number of times, but this was my first Sunday breakfast. Just want to say AMAZING!!! Food was outstanding, waitstaff was amazing. I will be back.
JOHANNA!!! YOU are a superstar! Thank you for making us smile ear to ear with this awesome review! <3
Love everything about this place...the staff, the food, the fun menu, the ambiance...even the bathrooms! My only disappointment on my most recent visit was that our wait staff didn’t tell us about the specials or the fancy drinks of the day. After we had already ordered, we heard another waiter explaining about some amazing things we may have ordered if we knew about them earlier. So be sure to ask about any food or beverage specials if your wait staff doesn’t offer it up.
Hiya Sandy! Thanks for the feedback and the glowing review. I wish we knew what you heard from the other waiter because we don't run specials (food or drink) that are not printed on the menus- if we did we would definitely want all of our patrons to be in on that excitement! Hope to see you again soon!
The whole experience of this restaurant was very good! No complaints. I would eat there again.
Thank you for the kind words, Faith! We appreciate YOU!
Would’ve liked to see more options on the menu for brunch but enjoyed everything we ordered. The cocktails were delicious and the stuffed bagels were tasty and a nice substitute for a bread basket. The outdoor space is nice and the service attentive.
I would for sure go again! Very yummy and fun!!!!!!!!
Thank you for the 5 stars Cynthia!!! You rock!!!
A long-time Texas friend and I chose for one of two evenings of dining. Food and ambience enhanced this special occasion.
Always a good experience!
Thank you Matthew! Keep spreading the good vibes, we appreciate it!!!
Great ambiance. Based off of number of females taking pictures it is very Instagram friendly. *If you are there mostly for the pictures make sure you check out the bathroom 🚽 too🤣
Appetizers, entrees, drinks were all delicious and we all raved about the banana dessert. Our server was very attentive, even when we broke a glass full of cosmopolitan :-(
Overall great experience!
Very stylish decor. Good mix of food options for all pallets. The Tequila Mockingbird martinis were fantastic, smokey flavor. Portions were large-a couple can easily share salads, entrees, etc. check out the Mexican toilets in the bathrooms!
Great vibe, everything on the menu was amazing and well prepared! We had so much fun
Wow! My group of four came in Sunday evening and had an amazing experience! The Mockingbird immediately invites you in with its friendly staff, and comfortably intimate setting. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and gave our table wonderful suggestions. Between two small plates, four entrees, and one dessert, EVERYTHING tasted spectacular (and the portions were quite generous). If you’re in or visiting the Nashville area, you’ve got to try The Mockingbird!
Great decor, excellent service, fun drinks and delicious food! Would recommend the you oughta burrata salad and pasta la vista both were very flavorful.
We loved it! Service was great and the food was delicious. We took all three of our children and they all loved it as well
It was ok. Went for brunch and I wasn’t crazy about the menu. Hostess had a little bit of an attitude as well. Bloody Mary’s were delish and the bartender was great. Our table server was ok.
Decent Food but not great, nice cocktail list, ok wine selection, very good service and unique ambiance.
Other than the cocktails and the fine service we were disappointed. The marrow appetizer had virtually no marrow and the rest of the dishes were also lackluster. We had the flatbread, pasta, Barbacoa and Pots de Creme. Nothing was great and for the price it should have been. Coffee was served cold. We have enjoyed the Chauhan Ale House very much but this one isn’t up to par.
Great brunch! No issues with reservation or service.
