Modern Diner. Global Fare. Delicious Fun. This is The Mockingbird. Led by talented culinary duo executive chef / partner Brian Riggenbach and front-of-house extraordinaire / partner Mikey Corona, The Mockingbird offers a menu of comfort classics with a global twist and an ambiance of art deco diner whimsy. Walls are covered in beautiful custom-made wallpaper, painted tin tiles on the ceiling, windows open to two patios as weather allows and a larger-than-life mirrored bird sculpture overlooking the dining room. And then there’s the food and drink! Munch on a Mockingburger or Mac N Cheese (aka Feeling Grate!) while sipping an Old-Fashioned-ish or a Punchin’ Bag (ask about it – they are famous!). We also love hosting group events! We have a private dining room, an upstairs dining room and an enclosed patio, all perfect for bridal showers and bachelorette parties plus business lunches and corporate dinners. Y’all come see us! **Reservation cancelation policy is strictly enforced**

    We took our mom here for her birthday brunch and it was overall a great experience. My mom told the waitress to surprise her with drink, food, and baked goods because she is indecisive and couldn't pick for herself. My mom loved each of her selections from the "Church Punch" to the "Flock Yes" entrée. We started with "Those Buns Though" overall it was tasty, just a tad bit dry. My sister's order the "Bubbles in a Bag" and they loved it. The waitress was very attentive and friendly. At the end of brunch she brought out a cute little dessert with a lit candle for my mom to blow out. I will definitely return!

    Very nice restaurant with an eclectic menu. The vegetarian loaf was delicious, although later I realized how salty it was when I was super thirsty! The staff were super friendly. My only negative was that our meal was very rushed. The food came out really fast and I felt like they wanted our table done quickly. I prefer to enjoy the appetizer before the main meal comes out, but it came out within 2 min after the appetizer was served.

    We had a wonderful meal with excellent service. The comfort food selections were delicious with an updated, positive twist. We enjoyed the ribeye, the bulgogi, the Mac and cheese, the brussels sprouts and the rosemary potatoes. For dessert, we gobbled up the sundaes. It was a birthday celebration for my Goddaughter (21) and there was a great blend of people of all ages and backgrounds. Nice wine list with little surprises like Orin Swift’s Eight Years in the Desert. Delicious salad options. Our server Santiago made the evening fun and did a wonderful job. We loved the vibe and would definitely go back.

    My friend and I both got violently ill after eating at this restaurant and eating the same pasta dish. The service was great and the ambience is also nice, but I’m not sure if what’s going on in the kitchen is 100% heathy. I reached out privately to the restaurant letting them know what had happened so that they toss whatever batched ingredients they have sitting because clearly something had gone bad. I was offered only an apology and no financial compensation for the inconvenience. Dinner was $120 with tip for just myself; that’s just two drinks, an app, and an entree so I expected better customer service. You have been warned!

    Everything was great! First time here and we will be back for sure. We ate the bagel bombs, French toast, Flock Yes and the fries with aioli. The spice and seasoning on the French fries are the ONLY way to eat fries from here on out. Definitely recommend mockingbird for brunch. *make a reservation, we did and it was a good thing we did. There was a line out the door. Chef Maneet, your menu, ambience and staff were all superb. We came here because of you and your reputation. 12 out of a 10. Hands down.

    The Mockingbird was a very delicious brunch for our party of 8. The cocktails were fun and delicious. And the menu included a little something for everybody. The favorite was the big donut that we ordered for the table. Ambience was great and the location was in an interesting and different part of the city.

    Server didn’t greet us or bring water until we had been sitting there for over 15 minutes. Other servers walked by and didn’t say anything. Our server showed up as we were getting up to leave and was very apologetic. We stayed and food was excellent. Small plates were amazing and dessert was the best! Also great ambiance.

    Well there are highs and they were lows. We started with a couple of cocktails I had the Jen and Juice which is delicious blend of gin chartreuse and some other fruit flavors. I also tried a special starter that was tater tots with caviar while the presentation was lovely the caviar was abysmal and laughed in flavor it only provided eye candy and crunch. I ordered the tots with the works...the tots were perfectly fried and hit. The gravy was delicious and flavorful. However the bacon / lardon on top of it was too salty, painfully salty. My friend ordered the salad and had pancetta added on top of it she appeared to enjoy it. However she did mention that she saw the pancetta would come out slightly sauteed or seared as it appeared to have at the neighboring table. It was the day after New Year's and they appeared to be short-staffed in the bar area, but everyone had the right attitude. With that being said so many beautiful places in Nashville to try out I'm not sure I'd go back a second time, because nothing was super memorable. But it's not a bad place to try.

    Lovely service and food was great! Staff was very attentive and went out of their way to ensure our meal was perfect. Requested a special cocktail and they delivered! Bartender even came by to see if I liked it. The only thing we didn’t love was the chicken thighs and mashed potato meal. It was good but nowhere near as good as everything else we had. Very heavy and the flavors just didn’t hit any high notes like other dishes. We love this restaurant and strongly recommend!

    Was very impressed once we got to the restaurant as we made this NYE dinner reservation two days before New Years Eve. This restaurant did not disappoint! The waiter at our table was very attentive and not overbearing, everything regarding our dinner experience was very well paced and not rushed. The food did not disappoint either. Very different items offered in the menu with fun ‘pun’ like names for the dishes. Everyone in our party got something different and everyone enjoyed their dish that evening. When in Nashville, this is worth checking out. Small intimate space with a nice nighttime ambiance. Also, they recommend parking in the Whole Foods parking garage as they will validate your parking if you park there.
