Fantastic atmosphere. We were downstairs this time. Our first time we were upstairs in the Lounge. We like both for both different reasons. Our server, Elizabeth, was unbelievably friendly and competent. Both the Braised Short Ribs and the Stuffed Flounder were fantastic. And their famous Skillet Cookie was delicious. We love the place and will be coming back often.

This place is AMAZING and such a cool experience! The food is endless, the drinks are endless, and the quality of all of it is mind blowing. Might easily be one of the coolest brunches I have ever attended. I would recommend this place to anyone who is in Nashville!

One of us had the tasting menu. The ravioli and the scallop dishes were excellent as was the chocolate dessert.
The salad, flounder, and short ribs were nothing special. Very expensive I think you are paying for the ambiance.

The overall experience was TERRIBLE.
1. The food was cold
2. The food comes out iN shifts.
3. My party never experienced eating all of their food together.
4. The ONLY good thing that happened while there was our server. (Elizabeth)

More than likely I will never return.

This place was amazing! I took my mom for brunch and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our waiter, Eric, was a sweetheart and checked on us every few minutes. We did the bottomless brunch and mimosas. The food was delicious and the restaurant itself was beautiful!

It was overpriced for what we got. Probably worth $30 in total. The champagne bottle we got to take home has a retail of $6.

The fried chicken is usually a lot fresher. We were there at 12:45, there should have still been plenty of hot and fresh food.

Truly one of the best brunch experiences I’ve had in Nashville. The staff members were amazing and they took the time to explain everything. The food was fresh and I was impressed by the sheer volume and variety of food offerings. Whether you were vegan, diabetic (like me), or a true carnivore, there was something for everyone. We will absolutely return in the near future!

The Sinema is super nice and everyone that works there is nice and friendly. I love how their food is endless and you can choose whatever you want. Me and my date went for brunch and everything was so good. I highly recommend the cinnamon roll pancakes and the bananas foster pancakes. This place is a 10/10

The atmosphere is very nice. The hostess was rude and was too busy on the phone with her friend to acknowledge that we had showed up for our 545 reservation. When she was finished with her personal conversation she seated us.
Everyone’s order was cold and the restaurant wasn’t that busy. Three large scallops with cold polenta polenta— The chicken dish was extremely salty and the flounder was burned on the bottom. Overall the restaurant is aesthetically pleasing but the chef or the waiter obviously had timing issues

Environment was great, many food items, though flavored well, were slightly undercooked or strangely had zero seasoning, and our server forgot multiple things, sometimes multiple times.

Sinema was lovely from start to finish. My boyfriend is in a wheelchair and I am in recovery so we mentioned both of these things in the “special comments” of this app. When we arrived, our table was handicap accessible and no alcohol was attempted to be upsold to us because they actually looked at the comments and listened to what we needed being in early recovery which meant a lot. Our server and all of the staff was attentive, knowledgeable of the menu, and very invested in our, and every guest’s, experience. The food was absolutely phenomenal as well. We did the five course tasting menu and each dish was incredible in its own way and with its own flavor profile. It was an incredible experience that made us feel like we were special from start to finish. I would recommend this to every single person who visits and lives in Nashville. We will definitely be dining here every time that we return!

We had a great experience. Cheese board and lamb chops were first class. We both ordered different fish entrees that were tasty but not exceptional. Strawberry shortcake was ‘short’ on taste. Service was fine but not first class. Our server did not check in on us with sufficient regularity once orders were taken and food started coming out

You almost feel transported to another world when you walk in the door. The ambiance is a mesh of old hollywood glam meets new, modern, and chic. The drinks were great-kudos to the bartender downstairs where we started our evening. Dinner was absolutely delicious. I had the mafalda arrabiata and husband had flounder. They were were both delicious. The pasta was cooked perfectly and was flawlessly executed with its spicy finish. My husband was very happy with the flounder. Excellent wine pairings were offered went very well with dinner. We finished the evening off with a cup of coffee and sambuca. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.
