    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.

    For an upscale restaurant it didn’t seem upscale. The fish was over cooked, the drinks were overpriced and the service was inattentive.

    Overall we had a great server but the restaurant told us upon arrival that they were closing 2 hours early and we had 15 minutes before the kitchen closed. We know they will charge you $25 per person if you cancel so we stayed and ordered/ate our $250 dinner in 45 minutes which was definitely a challenge. We will go back but I probably won't reserve through open table again due to the fact that we need to check timing prior to our next visit.

    The wait staff and hostesses were great. Unfortunately, the kitchen sent our orders out wrong and both of them had to be redone. Also, the chef apparently didn't know how to prepare the Bernaise sauce that was always served with my steak. If I'd known I would have ordered another dish. The food was perfectly prepared, as always.

    The interior of the Rutledge is very chic, black and white, more of a Nashville vibe. The server and host were extremely friendly and helpful. The food left some to be desired... Granted, this was breakfast so maybe they are more known for their lunch and dinner. I went with 4 friends and none of us really had much to say about our meals. It was just ok which is a bit disappointing when you're paying Franklin pricing. I would go back to check out the dinner spread, though. :)

    This is the best place to dine by far. Everything was exceptional from the drinks, service, appetizers, food and ambiance. I wish I had taken photos! The appetizer of spinach and artichoke dip with fresh chips was great! The fresh chopped salad was also great! The fillet was perfectly cooked with a sauce that melts in your mouth with the loaded baked potato was fantastic! The prime rib was the best prime rib from here to California and the truffle fries were delicious! The service was excellent from the hostess to the waiter. Will definitely go back! 5+ stars!

    This restaurant has great ambience and decor. The menu is on the pricey side for the size and quality of portions in my opinion. The appetizers are very solid. In particular the shishito peppers and the tuna tartare were very fresh and flavorful. The main course (mahi mahi) was quite salty and dry and not very large portion-wise. Otherwise it was a decent experience.

    I eat at the Rutledge often and have done so since they opened. The food and service are consistently very good to excellent as is the bar. Prices are significantly better than downtown Nashville and parking is free 😊. The menu is compact but diverse. This brings us back to the Rutledge time and time again.

    We decided to go here for our 15th year anniversary and we’re extremely disappointed. The service was lackluster and the food was well below par. They gave no recognition to our special occasion and the food itself was not worth the price. I do not see any circumstances where we will be returning.

    Food choice, taste and quality was excellent. The Scottish salmon and Mahi Mahi entrees and with roasted Brussel sprouts were great as was the Santa Monica sushi roll. Only problem was the server only brought two of the orders out and asked if I was sure I didn't want anything. Trouble is, I did place my order with him and he repeated it back. He just failed to place it. They did bring it out about 10 minutes later. The manager did comp that entree and a dessert for our anniversary.
