Incredible dining experience perfect for our anniversary of 33 years. We did the tasting experience with the wine pairing. Every course was delicious from the gem salad all the way through to the dessert. Probably would not have tried some of the items voluntarily but so glad they were offered in this experience as we loved them. Service was great and both managers came around to be sure we were enjoying our food and atmosphere. This will be on our list of go tos when celebrating special events or the occasional special dinner. 10 out of 10 👏🏼

We sat upstairs. Quiet. I had not been there in several years, mostly a covid thing. The food was outstanding. It has always been a cool ambiance, but no kidding we all said it was one of the best meals we have ever had.

We are from out of town and chose the outdoor dining option. We didn’t realize that it was a makeshift dining space lacking the atmosphere of the actual restaurant. The proximity of our table to the parking lot left us a bit insecure as the area didn’t feel completely safe.

Our server was friendly but there were long periods of time between his visits to our table. After bringing our checks, he never came back out to retrieve our payment. We had to walk inside and locate him ourselves.

The food and wine were good. No complaints there!

We had the best experience as is typical every time we visit Sinema. What made this special is that we had the same waiter/waitress that we have had on a few occasions Elizabeth took care of us all night. She was so knowledgeable and made our anniversary special yet again. We love Sinema and their food selections are the best Nashville has to offer.

We went for our anniversary. I used to live near Sinema but never had the opportunity to go. The experience was outstanding. Our server was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The food was a tasting menus which was our choice and I could of eaten full plates of each item who no do t find true for most tasting menus. Massive drink selection and unique and excellent cocktails. We even added a few dishes to take to fronds after. The space is so cool and has preserved much of the cinema feel. I’ll be heading back, and won’t need a special occasion.

Food was great, the venue is outstanding! The only drawback was a waiter who was so bossy, that his behavior was, “we do it my way or you can leave,” even with a modest request. Maybe he was having a really bad day? We’ve dinned here before and everything was excellent- maybe next time we won’t get Justin C.

Birthday dinner, party of 7. Please don’t have seating 4/3 (one is always left of of conversation); Inconvenience to rearrange table. Wine menu was wrong, simple tasks seemed a chore. BUT, it was still a great night and overall pleasant experience.

The reason for a 3 on ambience is that the glare from the bar was very distracting. I could not make out my stablemates features - just a silhouette. I rather felt under interrogation. I understand that the need for lower lightening for the "cinema" effect, but I found it most distracting while facing the bar. I had the tasting meal with wine pairing - and it was EXCELLENT. Outstanding job with the wine selection. That's a 5! I understand that restaurants are feeling quite the pinch, but I feel that for $70 (salad and 2 pieces of pasta - even though hand made - and dessert) should have included 2 scallops or two short ribs for the main courses. That was just a little too skimpy for 5 courses. However, all was outstandingly prepared, excellent dishes. Thank you for the opportunity for feedback.

It’s average. If you are from a larger city then you’ve most likely had better. Presentation was beautiful but the product flavor. Everything was kind of under seasoned, and in my opinion isn’t worth the price.

My group of friends came out to celebrate multiple things. Our server Eric and Chris was fabulous. We drank, laughed and eat. The Eric went over and beyond to accommodate the need for my special needs to to being on crutches. Although we had a reservation and our table was ready when we got there, due to my handicap needs she moved us to an appropriate table to make me be more comfortable. The did well with all the special accommodations for me and my party.

The food has a nice twist on the ordinary like jalapeño grits, lamb hash, bananas foster pancakes. But there is enough traditional for the more ordinary palette.

The ambience was lost sitting beside the kitchen but the place is pretty and love the pictures all around.

The server was 100% at the beginning. Lost interest halfway through and others picked up the slack then reappeared with the ticket.

Definitely worth the $$.
