NEW LOCATION at 1808 HAYES STREET !!! Beautiful covered patio!
Pasta, Steaks and Chops. Nashville's premier Italian restaurant. You won't leave here hungry. For over 27 years, a Nashville original, Valentino's Ristorante serves the finest Italian cuisine using fresh local ingredients from some of Tennessee's finest. Musicians, movie stars and movers and shakers all have touted Valentino's as the place for great Italian food, live entertainment and private events. Just ask Bill Gates, Robert Redford, Rascal Flatts and the Vice President of the United States. Buon appetito.

This bar is a delight and authentically French owned! I spoke to the co-owner (a lovely young woman from the Champagne region of France) while a jazz trio played the night away. I had a bottle of Riesling and enjoy the art deco/art nouveau decor. The patrons were fun to watch, too. They drew a great variety of people. I would highly recommend you visit!

Cocktail Bar
Downtown / Sobro
About the restaurant
Tucked away within The Joseph Nashville, Four Walls is an intimate cocktail bar for the knowing. Holding the tension between elegance and edge, a visceral experience of unexpected textures awaits. Hide on the wall. Fringe in the air. Fizz. Marble. Leather. Experience a celebration of the classic cowboy culture of the American West through an Italian lens with an artfully crafted selection of signature cocktails, negronis, and forgotten classics. Indulge and be sated... at last.

About the restaurant
The Standard at The Smith House may very well be the best example of local Nashville flavor and service. The Standard Restaurant has been in operation since 2006 serving upscale Southern specialties complete with a full-service bar. Our townhouse was built in the 1840's and we are honored to be the current stewards of this fascinating work of architecture. We are located in the heart of Downtown Nashville, just blocks from the new Music City Convention Center and the famous Lower Broadway entertainment district. We are proud to offer some of the best steaks in town as well as fresh seafood and other items.

Our beautiful courtyard bar area is available with a dinner reservation for drinks before or after dinner.

What a wonderful place. A historic home tucked into a modern downtown setting. Our service was amazing, personal and very accommodating. The Standard filets were so tender and perfectly cooked to order for all 5 in our party. A must for a Nashville trip!

The hot honey chicken was delicious. Not a bit spicy but very robust in flavor. The deviled eggs were also a hit
