    Seemed a bit overpriced based on comparable Nashville restaurants and service was not exceptional (felt courteous but cold) but food was exceptional and so was atmosphere Oddly, valet service is also worth noting as exceptional. Will be back but will set expectations a bit differently.

    The decor was beautiful and the food and drinks were perfect. The elevator music was a bummer. In the bathroom, they were playing old school country which was actually very cool and appropriate for the mood. Even the Taylor Swift they played before the “official” opening was great. The food was good and the mimosa bar was so fun.

    The bartender staff were not friendly. Us and another couple had a hard time ordering a cocktail and getting their attention. Would not recommend sitting at the bar. Our server was friendly and kind but forgot about our birthday celebration and it was $10 for an ice cream scoop. Otherwise the food was great.

    We were a little late to our reservation and they gave away our table, (totally understand that part as it was our fault) but we were told we’d be given a table in about 15 minutes from when we arrived at the restaurant only to be told later by another staff member that it wasn’t possible. Don’t give false hope to us in the first place if you knew there wouldn’t be future availability. However, Tawnie at the bar was fantastic and helped make our night fantastic. Great drinks incredible food and was very patient and understanding with us. Would absolutely recommend coming here for the food and would recommend both the bar and sit down areas. Only complaint was the hostesses lying and giving us false hope, when we already knew the consequences already for being a little late to a reservation. Would have rather them be honest about the situation instead of having us sit around awkwardly at the bar waiting.

    This is a really good place to have a nice meal and a nice setting. Valet parking made it easy to get in and out. We were seated in a comfortable spot. The food was delicious! It just is a little bit costly. But, all in all, this will be a nice go-to place for a date, family dinner, or drinks at the bar.

    We had a wonderful experience at The Lobster House. Vibe was on par, and food - AMAZING! We had the shrimp appetizer and if you like a little heat you’ll LOVE THESE! We also had sushi, filet, & Brussels sprouts. Everything was delicious. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

    We had an AMAZING experience here! My boyfriend and I went here on new years days and with the help of our server Madelyn, we had an incredible experience. The ambience was great, lobster bisque was amazing, and the waygu filet was to die for. Our server Madelyn really made the experience great for us & was super friendly!! Overall don’t know why this place is not on downtown Nashville’s top 10 places to dine! We will DEFINITELY be returning. Very satisfied

    This restaurant is perfect in every way, from the warm welcome to the warm bread pudding. The service is impeccable. Our waiter even brought me a fresh cranberry and soda without being asked. The Waygu filet was perfectly seared medium rare with crispy salt on top. The house made Worcester butter was a perfect accompaniment. The ambiance is calm and sleek with tables far rough apart to make each dinner party private amid a comfortable hum of diners enjoying their meals and each other. Don’t miss the corn soufflé. The beet and goat cheese salad was also outstanding.

    We had a great time but I wish they would have honored the request about sitting on the balcony. We booked it far enough in advance and were told they had the request in the notes and would do everything possible but when we checked in nothing was mentioned or honored. We were sat next to a pretty noisy large party. Otherwise the food was great.
