The Mockingbird Nashville Ratings and Reviews
I made a reservation at The Mockingbird for a friends’ bachelorette weekend, it was the perfect spot for a special brunch and amazing food that’s great for hangovers! So many amazing menu items from a daily donut flavor to the worlds BEST Mac and cheese (I kid you not!) The decor is beautiful and the staff was super friendly. You’re missing out if you don’t go check this place out!
My friend and I dined upstairs on a Friday night and shared three small plates. The mac n cheese was incredible, and so were the brussel sprouts. Cocktails were also amazing. The only negative thing I have to say is that this place is LOUD. I felt like I was yelling across the table to be heard.
The food was good, but the portions were not really worth the price. I went with a small group for my birthday and there was an unexpected cake cutting fee that was not disclosed when I called earlier in the day asking if I could bring the cake in. You can bring the cake in but it will cost you to eat!
I will not return nor would I recommend this restaurant. Ate there with a friend for lunch. We each had the lunch tray which consisted of 1/2 bahn mi type sandwich, pumpkin soup, beet salad and cookie. It looked cute and good. I expected the sandwich to be served warm, it was not. The shredded carrots were mixed in with the pulled pork so it was not appetizing. The sauce was like a bbq sauce, too salty and mixed in with everything. Big fail. The soup was pumpkin, it was good, but pudding thick and cold. The cookie tasted like it was from the grocery, nothing special. The beet salad was 2 half slices of beets on wilted greens that had been mixed in a dressing that appeared "chunky" but lacked flavor. I wanted to like the Mockingbird but was disappointed. By the way, the parking situation is not good and there is construction and closed streets all around.
Great meal!! The sandwiches and salads are top notch. This was my second visit. The food is great and the chocolate milkshake is amazing. The tropical shake dessert is a liquid. It’s not like a milkshake so it was the only thing that was disappointing. Overall it is a fabulous place to meet and eat!
LOVED this place. Service was outstanding and all of the food was delicious. Very foodie friendly menu. Met one of the owners and he was a very gracious host. Would highly recommend to any friends. Also, though for the style of food that it was a good value as well.
My husband and I dined at The Mockingbird for a double date with friends on a Friday evening. We order the Don't Worry, Brie Happy and Tatchos for the table to share to start - both were wonderful (especially the Tatchos!). I ordered the Seoul Purpose, which was probably the best dish of the night, and my husband ordered the fried chicken thighs, which was also very good. Our cocktails were well balanced, and the service was great - our server asked at the start of our meal if any of us have food allergies (which I think those with any dietary restrictions will appreciate!).
My spouse has food allergies. Her meal was delivered with the forbidden food once, then a second time without what she ordered to replace the tastes she could not have. The third time she was brought an overwhelming Side of onions that were not grilled as requested at the beginning. She essentially ate by herself in a party of six. She ordered a burger!
this was 2nd time we have tried. 1st was Sunday brunch then dinner. both times were excellent. service is outstanding and food is creative and priced right. valet parking is free. great place to go (as we did) before theater or any downtown event. highly recommend
This was our first time at Mockingbird and we will go back to try a second time, there were eight of us, and we all thought the food was too salty. We each got different items and everything was over done in salt. There are so many wonderful spices and we all agreed the flavor of everything was good, but it was also, hidden by the salt. The flavors could really pop sans the salt. The service was excellent, the variety and prices are very good, which is why we will try it a second time, and if the food is better, we would put this on one of our regular rotations. Also, in our group were three veterinarians, and I didn't think about this when I made the reservation, but they have a very good vegetarian menu according to my friends.
One of the most beautiful dining spaces in Nashville. Love the mid-century eclectic feel of the food and decor. Lots of comforting American favorites with a chef's attention to detail. Educated service with genuine reccomendations. Look out for the monster milkshakes! Will definitely go back.
I had reserved via Open Table and indicated it was an anniversary, and they put us at a terrible little table by the kitchen in the back. One of the partners said hello as we were about to sit and I asked him if it were possible to have another table. He was VERY kind, courteous, and accommodating. I give him points for that; less for the hostess who seemed to want to put the old couple in the back.
The rice cakes are outstanding, as is the hominy. The menu is fun, and the vibe is hip but not so hip you want to strangle a millennial. It's a cool place. Parking in the north Gulch is a bit of a pain; use the valet.
I'd go back.
They make simple food too complicated. The vegetarian Ruben was amazing, otherwise the Brussels sprouts, meatloaf, and tater tots had too much going on, too many competing flavors and textures that didn't work. Ambiance is nice and server was friendly - however she didn't respond appropriately when we told her what we didn't like. Why ask "how is everything", if you don't care?
This was our first time to dine at the Mockingbird and it was a delightful experience. Our waitress, Miri, did an excellent job of making suggestions...there were so many delicious sounding dishes to choose from. We chose two small plates to share and then each ordered an entree. The cocktails are great too! Can't wait to go back!
An added plus..there is valet parking just out the door!
We had a great lunch here last Wednesday—i had been wanting to try Mockingbird out, and when they started serving lunch I figured it would be an ideal time to stop in. We all had a small plate, & my favorite was the “rice rice baby” arancini—they were delicious. The Mockingburger was on point too—a double cheeseburger with all the right flavors: gooey cheese, charred onion, a special sauce & homemade pickles. The pastrami sandwich (served on a rye bun) was very tasty too. They were served with fries (though we *could* have chosen a salad....). We shared an amazing slab of chocolate cake for dessert along with Frothy Monkey coffee. Our server Katie was delightful, and you really need to see the bathrooms 😄
Overall we had a really good experience—we will definitely be back.
Mockingbird is a lovely restaurant. Very clean lines and comfortable seating. We started the evening with cocktails - and Old Fashioned and a Cosmopolitan both were great. The aricini appetizer was so very good - gooey and tasty; we also ordered the Brussel sprouts which were divine. For entrees we had the pot pie - a very cool looking dish and wonderfully comforting - and the hanger steak which was cooked to perfection. The staff was unfailing friendly, helpful and solicitous.
