My family and I went for Easter lunch and loved it. Great food and drinks, service was excellent, loved the spot. The old-school lunch trays were a nice extra touch for the kids. If we lived in Nashville, we'd be regulars.

They put us in a corner by the fire extinguishers and it seemed like we were overlooked. We seemed overall in the way and that was a little uncomfortable. The food was really great and our waitress was super nice. I just expected to be seated in a better spot for a birthday brunch.

Everything about this place was amazing. My wife and I are vegetarian and they even had a special separate menu. Our server, Ian, was polite and knowledgeable and the food came out quick wen though they were busy.

This restaurant was really hyped by a waiter at another excellent restaurant. I was so disappointed that The Mockingbird was not comparable.

Way too dark, cold and rundown. Dishes and flatware were dirty. And, why do servers in Nashville put their fingers on the plate in the food? It’s like they’ve not been trained in serving etiquette.

Would not recommend this place to anyone!

The place, ambiance and decor are interesting and eclectic. The menu at first glance seemed like it belonged in a diner, but look closer and the dishes and taste combinations were to die for. Our appetizers, entrees and desserts were sublime. At a foodie level, The Mockingbird competes with the best.

Could be a 5 star rating but,like others, we paid for parking. As for the food,taste was excellent but portions were minimal. My daughter NEVER finishes a plate of food but her entree was very small. She had the Gnocchi.For the price it could have been double the size.Dissappointing to pay a good price for dinner and go home hungry.

The food and service were wonderful! Our server was kind and friendly and I was super-impressed by her. The only complaint I could possibly have is that our food took quite a while to come out. While I'm patient and understanding of a busy restaurant, I feel like 30+ minutes to get the entrees was a touch too long. Once we received it, it was amazing! I had the Seoul Purpose and my mom had the Bird is the word. All of it was prepared perfectly and so tasty. I may have to go back just for the Bird.

Food was outstanding! Always is. Came out hot and pretty quickly. Our server was a little slow to get drinks/orders and when she split up our ticket incorrectly (not a big deal at all) there was no apology or remorse. Almost seemed like we inconvenienced her. Other than that she was great. Ill always come back. :)

Service was great. Food was tasty and healthy. I fall in love with their appetizer Tater Tots after 30-years lonely years. The only problem was the parking, it's because of all the construction, which looks to be temporary.

Hello Thomas! Thanks for the 5 stars! We are aware of what a headache the parking situation is around us, and we are thankful for our guests that can see that it is temporary (and beyond our control). Please note, we do offer complimentary parking for dinner and weekend brunches for our guests. See you soon!

Went for lunch on Thurs. the parking was a nightmare. The (unpaved) parking lot was full. Had the parking a pay lit down the street luckily it was only $7 for 2 hours but I got the last spot in that lot. Our server said she couldn’t find a spot when she came to work this morning. Had to walk several blocks. With that said the food was good and not your standard fair. I’d go back when they have valet parking, though I have no idea where they park! Unfortunately parking is getting worse & worse in Nashville. Hate to think what it would be like on weekend!!!
