The Mockingbird was cozy, sexy, casual, yet sophisticated. It's a perfect place for when you want a night on the town and want to truly treat yourself. From their satisfying tapas to their gourmet entrees, we got literally everything we wanted without breaking the bank. Also the fun dessert was the perfect ending to the wonderful night. I've already HIGHLY recommended to everyone and plan on coming back again and again ! Thank you to the staff and the chef !

I thought the food was just ok...prices were a little high considering the food was just ok. restaurant ambiance is nice.

I wanted to try this restaurant because it was the only one in the restaurant group that I hadn't tried. I definitely recommend skipping this restaurant and going to Chauhans or Tansuos instead. Also, Chaatable is great if you are on that side of town.

We really enjoyed the atmosphere, service, cocktails and desserts. We disliked that the main courses stated they came with mash potato or potato pancake so we didn't order additional sides and the amount that came with our meal was more decorative than anything. Food tasted very good though. Recommend the punch bag and cake of the day!

Looking for a place near our hotel, that we could reserve short notice on valentines. Greeted warmly, shown to our tale and waited on right away.
Found the food which is billed as American fusion to be an odd combination of flavours that don’t quite work. I had the special, lobster cannelloni with hazelnut in the bechemal sauce, hubby had steak and parsnips, both were underwhelming. No wonder we got in immediately on valentines!

I’ve always enjoyed dining at Mockingbird and it was a great choice for Valentines Day Dinner. They had a special menu for the evening and both my husband and I enjoyed our meals, drinks and chocolate cake.

This was the second time I have been there and the first for my husband. The food was amazing. Great service as well. This place is like a slice of NYC in Nashville. It is so refreshing to have a restaurant here devoid of Edison light bulbs, reclaimed wood walls, stainless steel bar chairs and a menu that does not have chicken and waffles on it.

It’s a gloomy restaurant tucked almost underground with romantic view of parking lot. The entire restaurant is gray depressing period. The award winning burger was charred and burnt. My husband liked his fish. I am pretty tired of roasted Brussels sprouts on every menu in Nashville. Not fun really. Compared to effort made at Chaatable there is no comparison. Does a meat free Reuben sound appealing?

Cabbage Patch Kids small plate - you have never had brussel sprouts like this! Large plates - Oooooh Barbacoa and Poultry in Motion. The menu is creative and the food is spot on! Elevated southern classics! Great location, valet parking and the service was exceptional! We will be back!

We thoroughly enjoyed our food and overall experience! Stopped in for a date night. We started with “Don’t Worry, Brie Happy” - delicious! Drinks were also very good. Husband had Get Reel and I had Seoul Purpose as our entrees based on recommendations from our server. We were not disappointed. We finished off with the chocolate chip cookies a la mode for dessert and it was to die for. I would have to say the service made the overall experience for us - Tiffany was delightful, attentive, and gave great recommendations. My only complaint was that we were seated in a room that looks like it is usually the patio during warmer seasons... it was a little loud for a date night and a little chilly, but otherwise the entire experience was great and we will be back!

Cutest restaurant with accommodating staff and amazing food. The manager/owner walked around greeting every table and even clued us in on an Italian breadcrumb used in the mac and cheese. The french toast could use some sweetness, but the chicken biscuit, churro waffle and burger were amazing! Tator tots were great!

I thought the pictures looked great on yelp but the place is small with low ceilings. They decorated very well with the space but it’s odd. The food was mediocre. Nothing special. The drinks were very cool ideas but didn’t taste very good. It wasn’t bad but there are so many options in Nashville I wouldn’t return to this one

We met up with friends for dinner. On very positive notes, the food was excellent and our server top-notch.
However, the noise level was a problem. I'd asked for a quiet table and the host did his best. But the incredibly loud table next to us made it near impossible to hear each other. I wish restaurants would intervene in these situations. The tables in our section were all clearly annoyed at the level of noise. SO much better after that group cleared out.
Also, I would suggest asking for a square table. The four of us were in an elongated booth, and it was hard to have a conversation without someone being left out.

OMG. I was greeted by Mikey the GM and Brian executive chef as I entered and got to hear all about their trip to Paris. These guys make me feel like I’m a queen, like I’m special and an the only person in the restaurant. I brought a new client with me that’s relatively new to Nashville as an attorney that’s opening a new office. They knew that ahead of time and made sure she had the Executive treatment. I love their creative American Gourmet and I had the pork tacos and the fabulous soup. Dessert was banana pudding type with a cream peanut topping buried in a chocolate base. No calories either. You have to frequent this place it is so cool and fun and I feel special every time!
