    So this was actually my second time & it was actually better than my first time but don’t get me wrong my first time was great. This time around I came for my birthday with a small group of friends & when I say my waiter was absolutely amazing. He was like an Angel sent from heaven. His energy was very peaceful. I believed he might have been training the young lady with him but they both did extremely great. Both very kind, both seemed genuine, and caring. I will be honest a lot of times when I go into certain places with me being black I never know how I am going to be treated but I will say my guest & I were treated amazing. THANK YOU SO MUCH 🤍✨ Also check out my reel on Instagram I made from my first time @pamelajoy_

    The Rutledge was a beautiful place with very attentive staff except for the host. She was everywhere but her job. The wait staff is phenomenal. Food was delicious. They don’t do anything special for birthdays which was a little disappointing but my girlfriend still enjoyed.

    Made reservation here for dinner before a Nashville Symphony evening. Glad we did! Perfect. Nice trendy ambience and vibe. However, very comfortable. Friendly greeting and service. Food excellent. Tuna sushi amazing. Lobster Mac and cheese a great side choice. Highly recommend.

    We went for brunch with 7 people. We are locals and didn’t think we would find a place to accommodate us. However, lucky for us, this place is new and it isn’t known for brunch! It is a limited brunch menu but it’s enough options. Great drinks. Amazing location and the interior is very pretty. I just want to go somewhere that I know food and drink will be good and this is that place. It is not crazy pricey for me personally but I can see where alcohol can make it so. The staff is awesome! Only thing 🫣 is that parking next to it is $30 for 2 hours. So I don’t know about y’all but if I go out I personally don’t care and I always valet! Haha The men thought it was a Sunday brunch challenge and tried to find “free” or cheap parking. So one found $20 bucks 2 city blocks down and the other found $15 in the opposite direction. So we get dropped at the door, cuz it’s freezing and after, we walk because the food was so good we felt like a house! ALWAYS remember to wear comfy shoes! It was worth it!

    Our server had too many tables. He had no choice but to neglect us. Wasn’t his fault. The food was OK. This is more of a tourist location for the woo girls to post content with modern aesthetic. Won’t be going back.

    Very inconsistent meals. 3 people ordered the same thing, scrambled eggs all different for each of us. It was basic and nothing you’d expect from the Rutledge. The place was dead on Saturday early afternoon and able to accommodate my larger party than expected. Liberty our server was attentive and a pleasant server. Parking is reduced pricing if validated there but still high. Beautiful restaurant, I wouldn’t recommend brunch there compared to the other choices in the area.

    The service was great, however the food was ver lackluster for the price. The place was dead when we walked in which should have been a sign. Anyway, I don’t think I’d ever go back, but it just didn’t have anything that made me want to order any more food.

    Week night was very quite. Ambiance is very cool. Service great. Food did not hit the mark. Although we only did fish.. no steak. Steak rolls were alright. On the upside. It was cheaper. Would try again.
