Poor service by waitress. The “food runner” from kitchen and manager were amazing. Wait staff needs to learn from them! Small plates are wonderful! Zucchini cake needed salt but crudo was perfect!!!

It was a little slow, but the restaurant was busy. Food was exceptional. Staff ALL seemed to be so happy & enjoy their jobs- making the atmosphere even more enjoyable. Don’t go if you’re in a major rush.

Such a fun experience from the staff to the food and the cocktails! We are new to Nashville from NYC and are stoked to see such an eclectic and highly inspired menu here in town. Already planning our next visit with out of town friends.

Great food. Even better service from our waitress, Bexx. One of the co-owners came out and spoke with us about the menu and options, including gluten free offers and was very nice and fun. They were very accommodating for the gluten free diners in our group, including changing a few ingredients in dishes to suit.

Also the punch drinks in a bag were very fun and fairly strong, especially considering their reasonable price. Would definitely recommend Mockingbird.

Uninspiring meal. Service was spotty—waitress changed mid meal?? While the various small plates had some interesting sounding sauces toenhance the dishes, there was too much filler (potatoes, for instance) and not enough substance to the sauces.

I love Mockingbird but would love it a lot more if they would turn the music down. The soup of the day was OUT-of-this-world good. Service is always friendly, and the decor is fun.

Best pastrami sandwich ever. Bourbon soaked jalapeños with great pastrami. Not too big with great bread. Mac and cheese is phenomenal!

You would think a restaurant with dishes such as "Don't Worry, Brie Happy" and "In Pie We Crust" would be too kitschy. But the food and decor is far from it. Love everything about this place. Very veg friendly; even have a separate menu.

We had a fabulous time at the Mockingbird. Our waiter was nice, but a couple of little odd things happened, such as we requested to order appetizers and he told us to wait to order all together with our food. The drinks and food were overall very flavorful and decently priced for a slightly more upscale, but not overly fancy or pricey dinner. We enjoyed the evening and I’d definitely go back.

The food was amazing but the service wasn’t great. I had outdoor/patio dinner reservations for 3 at 9:00 PM. We showed up right before 9:00 and the hostess greeted us and said the table was being cleaned. We went and had a drink at the bar. At 9:30 I had to approach the hostess stand and she told me she was going to sit a party (about 10-15 people) outside and then she would sit us. About 5 minutes later she came and got us from the bar and took us upstairs to an indoor patio. She mentioned we would have a good view and we did of of the construction going on across the street. When we ordered dinner we also ordered another round of drinks and the server forgot to bring our drinks until we got our food and asked about them. The food was awesome! I got the fried chicken. I’ve always heard great things about the restaurant so I was excited about going for the first time. Hopefully the next time I go the service will be as good as the food!

I order the cheeseburger and my wife had the chicken pot pie. I really enjoyed both dishes, my wife preferred the cheeseburger, so we traded. We were celebrating a birthday and had a piece of cake that was really tasty. The drinks were interesting, and the service was great.

Delicious, inventive food. Everything was delicious. The Don’t Worry Brie Happy appetizer was so good, I was pleasantly surprised that the fried chicken entree was even better; then the olive oil cake dessert was perfect as well. Great service made it a flawless meal

Great food, excellent service at table. Bar service was very poor... arrived 20 minutes before reservation and only one bartender and never was even asked for a drink order while at the bar. Also as great as the food was for everyone in our group the wine selection is awful. They need to improve the wine offerings to match the excellence of the food!

In our first visit, we met some friends who were staying at a hotel in the west end. It was convenient for both groups and the valet parking was very helpful. Food was tasty. Three people shared two large plates and one small plate, and the other two had their own large plates. Everything was super tasty. Fun environment, and awesome blend of flavors from a variety of regions. Loved it!

The Mockingbird Nashville was a wonderful culinary experience. The drinks (fruit punch in a bag), the small plates of appetizers and the entree plates were beautifully presented and delicious. The desserts were awesome. The Mockingbird was recommended to us by our daughter. We had special guests with us from Texas. My wife and I will return.

Food was great but service was not great. Unfortunately our server had too many tables and our service suffered. Not sure if they are under staffed but it’s a management issue.

Loved this spot! It was the weekend so we expected a lively atmosphere, so we're not bothered by the boisterous dining room. Our server was fantastic and the food was great. We try to support local businesses when we dine out and we're lucky to have this eatery in Nashville.

I’ve been here before and had one of the best dining experiences ever! However, that was supper and I was later disappointed in my brunch food. I would highly recommend the tapas for dinner though! One of my favorite tapas places I’ve been to!
