    Booked a prepaid afternoon tea. In the Uber 20 min before reservation and they called and cancelled our reservation. They stated they aren’t doing tea today sorry. She did say she would refund our prepaid amount. It’s been 3 days and still no refund. Very disappointed with how they handled it.

    The only reason I gave the service a low rating is because we were there for so long before any food came out. Extremely slow. We were there what seemed like forever. With that said the food was wonderful and staff, friendly but not that attentive.

    Great food - loved the Nashville Lunchable, an assortment of "adult" snacks such as pimento cheese, thinly sliced ham, deviled eggs, pickled green tomatoes with a biscuit! The catfish was wonderful with a nice variety of vegetables.

    The food and ambiance was great. The valet is suppose to validate parking but they said it was $20. Just make sure you get your server to validate it and your good. The food was great for the price

    Brunch- had the cat head biscuit with chicken and it was just too much stuff. Pimento cheese on fried chicken on a tough biscuit … the potatoes were good. Ambience sucks. Smell of disinfectant as you walk in the hotel.

    If you’re looking for an experience, try a boozy High Tea at TENN. For those days of meetups for a different kind of brunch, or just wanting to catch up with your friends in a chill rooftop environment, this will prove to hit the mark. Not only was the service excellent, the people were lovely and welcoming, creating an ambiance of good times and good vibes made complete with an excellent array of tasty treats to go along with your selection of different teas. It was a fun find!

    The restaurant was a diner attached to a hotel that did not have central air conditioning. The food was sub par and the ambience was lacking. I would not recommend for brunch.

    Paid in advance for the rooftop experience with three of the four paying additional for the “Boozy tea”. It was very confusing entering the hotel. There was not any signage and it wasn’t clear where to go for our “roof top brunch experience.” We waited for 15 minutes at Tenn steps down from the lobby with one gues ahead of us and no one came to help. We eventually ventured to the roof top on our own only to find a locked entrance to the pool area.. on the third attempt to ask for help (on second trip to roof) found an employee to give us access to private pool area where we were taken to a reserved table. It was extremely hot with little shade and the service was very slow and confusing. After complaining Tenn did their best to make it right and we eventually received all the food (which was excellent) that was advertised to be included. It took an extremely long time to get the drinks and were only offered one cocktail. They did explain the person who runs the brunches was away on family emergency.. that said unless you want brunch on an non shaded pool deck with guests enjoying the pool around you with marginal service.. there are many better options for over 45/person for brunch… Waffle House comes to mind.

    Tea time was an amazing experience. This is something different to try rather than bar hopping. The only downfall is since it is roof top if it's hot and sunny there was no umbrella, so it did become very hot and you food became warm ot melted.

    I wanted to try the Banh Mi but we were there on Sunday at lunch a nod they have a brunch menu so did not have that available. What we had was good—spinach salad with chicken, club Sandwich, avocado toast, and a burger. Lots of people were ordering breakfast burritos which looked good. I’m out waitress was attentive.

    Did not enjoy my experience here. We went for Easter brunch. The avo toast couldn’t be cut by our knives and you could tell the bread was old. I ordered an eggs Benedict which did not come with a poached egg. I was never asked how I like my eggs and the egg came so undercooked that the egg whites weren’t even cooked through. Disgusting. Desert was decent. Friendly staff!
