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.

We went to the cocktail bar before going to Yolan for dinner. We had a fabulous experience at Four Walls. The cocktails were outstanding and very creative. Our bartender was very knowledgeable and fun to talk with. Highly recommend this place. One of the best cocktail bars in Nashville.

Pasta, Steaks and Chops. Nashville's premier Italian restaurant. You won't leave here hungry.

We had an amazing time at Valentinos. The ambiance was wonderful and service impeccable. The food was very well prepared and absolutely delicious. Our choices were the house specialties osso buco and veal parmigiana. Scrumptious!

The Authentique is a delightful gem that transports you straight to a Parisian bistro! The ambiance is cozy and charming, with great service, making it perfect for a relaxing meal. The crépes are simply excellent—authentic, flavorful, and beautifully presented. The wine selection is impressive and pairs perfectly with the dishes. Highly recommend for anyone seeking an authentic taste of Paris!

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.

We asked for romantic, private seating for our anniversary. Despite there being a very light crowd, we were seated in Portico room with what looked to be tourists who seemed to be coming in off the streets and happened to also notice that all the black patrons were seated there. It was a disappointing & strange experience. Scott, our server, was awesome. But inflexibility of hostess & manager was disappointing.
