Excellent food. Location is a bit funky, but overall one of the best dining experiences we have had in Nashville.
Very underwhelming. I’ve been to Mockingbird about 4 times and keep finding the food to be less and less appealing each time. I had the breakfast taco which looked more like a quesadilla not a taco. The egg to chorizo ratio was way off and ended up being very bland. Bummed!
So wonderful! We’ll be back. Everything was great.
Great food and awesome customer service.
Very eclectic! Service was great. Met the chef which always enhances the meal.
My favorite restaurant in Nashville! Love the commitment to the branding throughout the decor, drinks and meals. The menu isn't overwhelming, but also feels like there are plenty of options for every type of diner.
Food was excellent but snafu in kitchen caused delay in one of our meals. Good we planned to share! My friend ordered special sandwich with spicy chicken sausage patty. Mine was delicious hanger steak. Both were wonderful. Vanilla & blueberry sundae was delivered to table because of the kitchen mix up.
It was great. We celebrated a birthday and they were fantastic. Unfortunately they ran out of a dessert special but they made up for it with the service. I would definitely return.
Restaurant has great decor and vibe. Really liked the totchos and the beet salad! Fried chicken was cooked perfectly but a bit bland. Could use more salt and more acid in the hot sauce or the pickled onions. Loved the tequila mockingbird. Old fashion was pretty stingy but tasty.
We like to frequent the Mockingbird because the service is excellent and the food is awesome. For Mother’s Day I wanted to take advantage of a great meal and sitting outside. The co-owner greeted us and we had a nice conversation. Then the kale salad arrived and it was really tasty. My wife ordered the chicken and I ordered the fish special which was the salmon. Since my wife usually doesn’t like salmon I thought I would get the entire meal myself. But one bite of the Salmon and we were sharing our meals. It was Mother’s Day so I guess it was ok but next time I’ll order 2 salmon dishes and a chicken.
The food was amazing as was the service. Had a great conversation with Mike, one of the owners, and you could tell he was personally involved with all aspects of the dining experience. We went there for Mother’s Day brunch and was not disappointed.
We’ll definitely be back.
Overall a bit disappointing. The atmosphere was great, but most bunch items were below average and overpriced. Sausage, cinnamon bread and pastrami were all nearly inedibly dry. Looks cool though.
Overall we had a fantastic experience. We brought friends that were visiting from out of state. The food, service and ambiance were spot on. We will be back!
Wow. What an amazing dinner. All staff were super attentive and friendly. Hip without making us feel uncool. Took my wife for her birthday and casually mentioned it to our waiter while we were ordering desert and they brought her a surprise cupcake. Food was great. We split 3 small plates and desert. Everything was great. We'll definitely return.
Great food and the cocktails are fun! The upstairs patio area is very nice ambiance and pretty decor.
My husband and I stopped by there on our way home to Louisville. Love this gem! Food was the best we’ve both ever had! Chopped chef run kitchen, top notch food, amazing hospitality. We will be back and next time for brunch!
My husband had the burger with a fried egg and bacon.
I had the pastrami sandwich. Pastrami is made in house!
Both came with fries. Both soooo good. For dessert my husband had the banana cream pie that had a chocolate crust, yum! I had the carrot cake (requested it be warmed) with a side of HOMEMADE, yes, homemade ice cream.
Like I said. AMAZING!!!!
The aesthetic of the place makes me want to give this place 5 stars alone! Dining here felt like I was in an entirely different city for the experience and I loved it! We were seated in a cute, two-person booth right by a window which was open due to the good weather. The temperature was perfect and the service was excellent! They take care and great notice about the details of everything (down to the bottled water service) and it was highly appreciated! Management came by and checked on our meal and I could see them circulating throughout the night which was awesome! We ordered the “Tatchos & Mac n’ Cheese” as appetizers to share for two and it was filling! The Tatchos were wonderful and the Mac n’ Cheese was not the best in the city but still delicious. I am excited to be trying other items on my next visit before narrowing down my favorite appetizers (small plates). Before the appetizers were brought out our server suggested we try the house made hot sauce and made sure it was at the table by the time any of our food did—thanks! We each ordered a burger and they were as reviews I read stated—juicy, cooked perfectly and unique (in comparison to burgers around Nashville). I would order again! Overall, I had a great experience and will definitely be returning. As a service industry professional, I was very pleased with the service overall (seating, ordering, etc).
Ate dinner here for the 1st time for my wife's birthday the other night. Everything was amazing. I made a note that we were celebrating her birthday on our reservation and every member of the staff we came in-contact made note of it. I was very impressed and my wife felt amazing due to everyone's kindness. We shared a couple small plates and a large plate and every dish was fresh and delicious. Thank you Mockingbird team, we'll definitely be back!
We went to Mockingbird for the first time and were blown away by the excellent food. We especially loved the beet salad with whipped goat cheese and the fried brussels sprouts. We could have made a whole meal of those two dishes alone. Very generous portions. We will definitely be back!
While visiting Nashville and Franklin area we went to 10 restaurants. This was our favorite! Delightful management, wonderful service and excellent cuisine! Highly recommend. Loved the small plate - brie and arrancini, and the large plate - chicken pot pie and braised short ribs. Dessert was also divine. Excellent cocktail and wine list. Do not miss going to this restaurant!
Waitress was perfect....friendly and full of personality. Very attentive also. The restaurant was a comfortable place to dine...loved the outdoor seating! Food was very good. Drink selection was very creative ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
We had an amazing experience - everyone was super friendly and helpful and the food and drinks were delicious! We loved the fact we could reserve a table outside. Will definitely be returning ASAP!
The pancakes were pillows of perfection! I will be thinking of these for a long time to come.
Such a fantastic menu, ambiance and drink selection!
The drinks were not very good and the food only made up for it a bit. The food was not bad, it was just not great. I would rate mine, my husband and our friend's experience and "OK", and I'm not sure that's what they are going for. The service was amazing, I just won't be back for that alone. It was packed, so I may be in the minority here. I really wanted to feel differently about it, but it is what it is.
The construction view was the only reason I rated the ambiance lower but not much can be done about that until the project is complete. The food was outstanding!!
The menu seems to have many hot and spicy entrees that cannot be adjusted for the hot factor so I could not order what I really wanted.
Increase your gin choices please
We went for lunch. The lamb sandwich was amazing. Best sandwich I've had in years. I'm an old lady and my friend and I had to Google some of the ingredients we weren't familiar with. But the server answered answered all our questions. My only regret - as we were leaving, a server came out with a wonderful-looking dessert. She said it was the pie of the day - coconut cream. My favorite. I wished I had ordered it. Maybe next time.
Perfect Nashville lunch spot - especially on a day nice enough to enjoy outdoor dining.
Food and service were superb!
Server was nice, but not attentive. She had too many tables.
Fair not great
Amazing experience and food. The owners even stopped by to say hi and were so friendly!
My friends and I really enjoyed our dinner at Mockingbird! When we walked in we were immediately greeted and they shared they were having a "Celebration of Spring" party that night, complete with a free photo booth, live music, popcorn and a free drink tickets. We stayed for almost 4 hours enjoying our meals, drinks and entertainment. We had a slight issue with our server but when we shared our experience with the manager, they listened and appeared genuinely concerned. We felt confident they addressed the issue. When we visit Nashville in the future, we will be sure to stop in here again!
The lamb was fall-off-the-bone delicious! My friend visiting from England said, "Best lamb I've ever had."
Girls trip to Nashville! We started the party with PUNCH BAGS! So Good! We enjoyed the food on the outside patio. What a wonderful experience! AND you can make reservations for the patio! Which is also a wonderful thing!
Mockingbird was a pleasant surprise we enjoyed the twist on comfort food. A fun menu. My favorites were the Japancake and the Banana Cream Pie. A comfotable & friendly place .
Casual but nice inside. Not a diner, more fusion cuisine. Very good grilled cheese appetizer. Asian chicken was oversalted. Pasta came out undercooked (crunchy) and almost cold. Desserts were overly complicated.
Loved the fun twist on traditional food found in a diner!
Loved our experience and have already recommended multiple times :)
Food was amazing! Server was helpful and attentive.
