My husband and I were in town celebrating our wedding anniversary and liked the concept of bottomless brunch. Our reservation was for outdoor dining and the setup was undesirable (panels separating you from the parking lot), but we made the most of it. Our server Devyn was very attentive to our needs and even customized some items. Highlights: the fried chicken, chimichurri potatoes, fruity pebbles French toast, and the sparkling Rosé mimosas. We would definitely come back!

Truly confused about how or why this gets so many good reviews. Food is exceptionally mediocre and overpriced. The tasting menu was abysmal, and the wine pairing was just sad.

Was a memorable evening for my wife and I. We had the tasting menu with wine pairings. Every course was wonderfully paired with a wine that brought out the flavors of each dish perfectly. The room is a perfect mix of romantic, old school classy but also modernly hip. The staff was attentive and friendly. The scallops and the pasta were among our favorites but every course was great. We will be back.

We had reservations for 4 for brunch, which is “all you can eat”. The service was slow all the way around, from the server to the food runners. When food was brought to our table of four, they did not bring enough for all four people to even at at one time. When we asked for more of (for instance) gravy for the biscuits, we never received it, and when we asked for more biscuits and gravy, it took over 15 minutes to receive it. We received ONE chiliquile (1 fried egg with 2 chips) for the entire table. This is ridiculous. For $33 per person for bottomless brunch, I would have expected timely delivery of food and attentive service. I gave my server my credit card, and it took at least 10 minutes for her to return with my check. Not doing this again

We did the tasting menu with the romance package, it was perfect. I had kind of a strange request for the note but the staff was happy to oblige. We opted for the wine pairing and they were all as fantastic as the food.

The kitchen was also very accommodating for my shellfish allergy and allowed me to substitute the scallops. The food was all incredible, and so was the service.

Sinema has the best food and best service in Nashville. Their staff are unbelievably kind. We had our wedding reception at Sinema and the carrot cake was out of this world. We went back for our anniversary and the carrot cake was not on the menu as it changes seasonally. The manager found out we loved the carrot cake and found a piece that had been left over from a private event. It was such a special surprise and was the icing on the cake (literally!)

Brunch is absolutely worth it. We were disappointed after sub par brunch the day before, but Sinema redeemed Nashville brunch. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful. We had a vegetarian in our party and she knew exactly how to handle it. She went out of her way to make things easier and she did a great job. The food was amazing. You have to do bottomless brunch! Definitely make reservations!!

I heard of this place on tik tok and I'm so glad. Took a girls trip to Nashville and we did bottomless mimosas and brunch. Everything was so good! The look of this place is so fun too. Service was incredible. Not one complaint and if we're ever in Nashville again we'll happily visit!

Danielle was our server & she was fantastic. We started with the bread board- delicious, the lamb lollipops- amazing, the kale salad was so very fresh and yummy, then we had a pasta dish- so great. We had drinks before & a lovely red wine- reasonably priced- 65ish. We did have dessert wine- lovely & the cookie that everyone raved about but this was my least favorite thing. Truly a wonderful experience would definitely come again when we travel to Nashville!
