We have been to The Old School several times and we are always so pleased! The food is excellent. The staff are very attentive. The environment is wonderful. We love going for brunch. I highly recommend if you are in the Nashville area. It is a few minutes out of town but so worth the drive!
Exceptional food and service. This was our third time eating here and our first brunch. We highly recommend and will be back.
Everything was phenomenal. But one minor gripe - I don’t think the music in the main dining room fit the vibe of the restaurant at all. It was basically the default wedding reception playlist, which kinda took me out of the sophisticated dining experience. I would much rather hear music from the live band in the other room or some tasteful classics that aren’t so overplayed.
I had the best pork chop I probably ever had. You must remember this is Farm to Table - which is very different feom your average restaurant- everything is cooked fresh and the flavors will be like you have never experienced- come with an open mind and palate- it was tummy!
Loved everything about this place! I did goat yoga in the barn and then had brunch in the restaurant. So fun! Wish we had been seated in the main dining room where there were lots of windows.
Came to visit Nashville and stumbled upon this gem! Loved the setting and overall environment, nestled in a beautiful farm was the brilliantly refurbished old schoolhouse. Was able to see a live performance that just topped it all off! The farm to table cuisine was delicious and unique! Our server and chef were very accommodating to my party’s various dietary needs/restrictions. They catered to meat eaters, vegetarians and gluten-free vegetarians without question or any complications. Loved this spot, will definitely recommend to anyone and everyone visiting Nashville!
We absolutely loved our experience at The Old School. The food was creative, but accessible, and crazy delicious. We were pleased to have been seated in the Speakeasy Music Room and greatly enjoyed the live entertainment from Farmer and Adele. Congratulations to The Old School for employing and empowering team members that other restaurants might overlook. Job well done in every possible category!
Excellent Brunch as always! The food is the best in Nashville. They never disappoint.
Outstanding food in a perfect setting
We visited for Saturday brunch, and it is definitely our new favorite Nashville spot! The building is an old school house that the owners have saved and turned into an awesome space. The menu is mostly things from the gorgeous garden on the property, including their own honey, and if they can’t get it there then they source it from within 20 miles of the restaurant. Our server was great, food was fantastic, and the space was so nice. Plus you can buy their honey and granola to take home! This place really is a gem! We will definitely be returning every time we come to Nashville.
This is an interesting venue. A little pricey, and not a big selection. The food tasted great.
We had such a great time at dinner. Our waiter was friendly and the food was absolutely delicious. Also, the best chocolate cake in the world. We can’t wait to return with friends.
One of the best brunch spots in town. The food is fresh, flavorful and innovative.
The venue is amazing! Our waiter Nick was super friendly and knowledgeable about menu. We were there for a date and to listen to the Bayjacks.. bar service was slow. I’m from the NW, I understand what they are trying to do with farm to table. It was pricey for the sizes & flavoring.. need to work on the dinner menu a little more.. I would give them another chance
Keep in mind they have a limited menu and some items are not available on the limited menu based on what has been delivered. Most likely not a place for families with younger children based on the limited menu.
LOVED our experience here. The food was creative, seasonal and delicious. The ambiance is cozy and quiet. Would definitely recommend for any occasion!
Pastry basket was great, and Benedict was awesome. The band was wonderful. I only wish that the bar menu had more than champagne, mimosas, and Bloody Mary’s
So incredibly disappointed by the meal and the service.
Little pricey for brunch but everything was delicious! Happy to splurge a bit when the quality is top notch!
Would definitely recommend to someone who appreciates fresh, local ingredients.
I love bringing new guests to this charmer. The food is fantastically fresh and never ceases to please the crowd. They adapt so well to the seasons and the service is always excellent. Family friendly and for a cause!
Our server was lousy, the food was average, the air conditioning wasn’t keeping up and by looking around at the empty tables during a busy time I think others have drawn the same conclusions ... there are plenty of other options
This was delicious! It would be good to how a kid’s menu and to know the prices of the side dishes.
The first time we visited was for dinner. Ordered the pasta and it was overcooked, appeared to have been sitting for awhile and the cheese congealed. Decided to give it a second try for brunch. They were out of the doughnuts -- how do you run out of doughnuts if they are made fresh and it was not the end of the brunch hours? Ordered eggs over easy and they arrived hard cooked. Sent them back and by the time I got the new eggs my friend was done with her meal and my biscuit and bacon were cold. Asked for a new hot biscuit asap and it arrived about halfway through my eating the eggs. Had to ask for butter. Waitress didn't seem concerned with the food issue, but did end up comping the meal. I won't give it a third try. It's such a cool spot, too bad the kitchen can't live up to the vibe.
Truly a special find, that i'd love to keep to myself. Causal friendly and simply Nashville. menu is creative, chef is accommodating and we were well attended to.
Loved the atmosphere. Hostess showed us around and told us a little of the history of the building before seating us. A very enjoyable dining experience.
Severely limited menu. Substituted ingredients not listed in the menu. Liked being able to talk w friends without having to yell or strain to hear. Pleasant atmosphere but a bit overpriced.
Loved this place! Beautiful building, great food, excellent service! Mimosas were delicious! Absolutely best pastries that I have ever tasted! Live music was very relaxing! Location was great! Great hiking spot down the road at Beaman Nature Center! Will definitely be back!
Food was delicious! I loved everything we ate. Unfortunately our service left some to be desired. For a quiet dining room, our server really seems to be MIA quite a bit. We ordered a few dishes just to be shared amongst the table and when they arrived we had no share plates. I had to request them from the food runner. Then after we ere done and sat for some time, it took us almost 45 minutes for us to get our server’s attention to request the checks. We will be back because we love the food and think that it is a wonderful restaurant, but hopefully next time the service will match the food.
Birthday date for my love and this place did not disappoint. Will definitely be back! Great food, quality and loved the ambiance (also enjoyed hanging out w the roosters and their gals, afterwards).
So fun.. fantastic good... cool vibe! We went for a bday celebration... don’t forget to try their desserts... we had 1 of each ..,
The ambience and grounds/farm are so pretty! It was bustling but our service and experience were not affected. Our appetizers and dessert were incredible- one entree was a bit overdone (rabbit) but my trout and side dishes were delicious! Will go back. FYI if you’re taking an Uber (we enjoyed the wine list) make sure you schedule one or be prepared for about a 15 min return trip.
Worth the drive - beautiful setting just a short drive from Nashville. Grown on site fresh veggies and locally sourced meats. Love the setting, the service and the food is always fantastic. We enjoyed the steak and trout, both were perfectly prepared.
Everything was great except the main entree portion was significantly smallish.
Everything was delicious, though the garlic bisque was too garlicky for my taste (and I like garlic). The trout had incredible flavor and its accompanying giant hushpuppy was super filling. The roasted tomatoes and ravioli created a flavor explosion, and the soft white cheese on our peach tartine appetizer was also dope.
Fabulous ambiance for a special occasion. I wish the weather were good enough to enjoy the beer garden. Really interesting menu and all uber-local ingredients.
Our first visit and enjoyed the atmosphere and variety of people there. Service and food was good, but not outstanding. Enjoyed hearing about the history of the place as a noting the variety of activities offered at the "old school". Would recommend a visit to see the creativity that goes on at this place to eat, drink and recreate!
Great food, appealing unique presentation, wish the rabbit had been available. Will be back.
This was really hyped up for us, and may be part of the reason that I was slightly disappointed. We waited 45 past our reservation time. The food was good...not great, but good. By the time we got to order, they were sold out of several things (at 1:00). I do recommend the Bakers’s Basket...it was delicious. The Gruyere Grits were bland and unexciting. The cinnamon roll was ok. The ambiance was nice, service was pretty good, and I’d definitely give them another chance.
The food (local sourced) and service were excellent.
