    This place has gone DOWN in a major way. It used to be stellar food, service, and have a relaxed vibe with fantastic slow house background music. Now, NO MUSIC at all whatsoever, mediocre food, and hit or miss service. Also, their website says they are open till midnight on Saturday, but tonight everyone was rushed out by 10pm. I’ve seen this place consistently go down hill over the last year but I’ve definitely arrived to the decision never to go back.

    There was miscommunication with our server over the wine that was ordered. I was brought a wine that was double the price of what I ordered. I don’t think it was intentional by our sever, just a mix up. I didn’t realize this until the bill came. The manager would not adjust the price. We will not be back anytime soon which is hard. In the past this has been one of our favorite restaurants with great food and service.

    An amazing night with my two best friends. Kim is the most fantastic server! She was knowledgeable about the menu and very attentive. We had a table full of food and everything was delicious! The sushi, the shrimp egg rolls, the prime rib, the rotisserie chicken….the lobster mac and cheese!!! The drinks were on point and delicious and the ambiance was inviting and hip without pretentiousness (iykyk) 10 out of 10 would definitely recommend!!!

    Overall it was good! The only thing about The Rutledge (Cool Springs) is it’s so loud. There’s really not much to absorb the sound and at one point last night the music was turned up so loud it felt like a club. It was 6 o’clock. And the tables are pretty close together so add in people talking over the music and it gets a little hard to hear those at the table with you. But our server was fantastic, food was delicious as always, and the seasonal pumpkin cheesecake was super yummy!

    Food very average. Spinach artichoke dip was delivered cold and could have done with some seasoning- even salt and pepper would have helped. Service was good; our server was very upbeat and had a good personality. However, they brought out the entrees before we had finished the appetizer, which is a pet peeve of mine. There was the usual shuffle while they tried to force the plates down amongst the appetizer plates and platter. My husband had a filet and potato, which were both very good; the steak was cooked perfectly. I had a salad with salmon and the salmon was so dry and hard that I could hardly cut it. It certainly wasn't an awful experience, but with all the choices out there, we probably won't go back.

    This restaurant is beautiful and the service was great however we were not impressed with the food. We felt like we were eating at an Applebees and I don’t say that to be rude but $50 for a steak that was mediocre quality just didn’t do it for me or my husband.

    This was our 2nd time to come here since we enjoyed our 1st experience. Not sure if we’ll be back a 3rd time though. Our server wasn’t very friendly, seemed quick to come and go from the table, I barely could ask for something fast enough before she left, even though it wasn’t busy at all when we were there. The cran-lemonade drink was too sweet, the Mahi Mahi grilled tacos were burnt, and the chicken sandwich was mediocre. For the price of the food, the quality was not there nor was the service.

    Nice atmosphere. Food from dinner menu was nothing special and over-priced. Would order off of bar menu next time only because I will not pay for over-priced marginal food. Too bad because it has such potential
