Loved the 5-course pairing menu. Unique dinner date idea from that regard, but also made us decide we will return to have more of the dishes we loved.

This is a MUST GO TO! Not only is the ambiance fantastic and fun, the food and service is amazing! My girlfriend and I were looking for somewhere to eat and happened to stumble across this. The reviews were great so I was like “why not?!” It was amazing and the highlight of our trip to Nashville.

They did not pay attention to the reservation at all. I even called to confirm the details the day before the dinner. I ordered the romance package and tasting menu for a special occasion and was excited to surprise my girlfriend with it. Once we came in, none of these accommodations were made. Then, as we received each course, no explanations of what we were receiving or drinking. Just dropped off food and ran away each time. Food was good. Overall experience was not worth the price.

We booked here for a party of 8 for a birthday dinner. Several members of our party bailed at the last minute. The restaurant was happy to accommodate the four of us. I had requested a chilled bottle of champagne to be at the table for us upon arrival. Via email, the restaurant confirmed my request. Upon arrival, our champagne was not awaiting us. The manager was quick to recover and sent some complimentary appetizers to the table and the champagne was promptly delivered and poured. It was very good. It was the Saint-Chamant Blanc de Blancs. I would order it again.
The appetizers - cheese & meat board and agnolotti - were very good. My main course was the gemelli arrabiatta - a spicy red sauce over pasta and sausage. It was so good. The portion was very large. The steaks ordered by my husband and one of our guests were cooked properly and very good. The side items, especially the duck fat potatoes, were very tasty.
The cocktails were insanely good. My husband drank conventional old fashioneds, while I had the "Baby What's Your Phone #?" and the birthday girl had, "Drippin' In Finesse." They were exceptional. Kudos to the bartender.
We loved the low-lit, intimate vibe of the place. The green booth was very large and big enough for the four of us to dine comfortably. Our server was top notch. We wanted for nothing throughout the meal. Fantastic service from the waitstaff to the manager.
Thank you for making Michelle's 30th birthday a memorable experience. She is already talking about wanting to come back again.

We did the five course tasting menu. Understand that the plates are to be small but they could use just a touch more on the plate. One more agnolotti, two scallops instead of one. I almost felt like I needed an appetizer at the end to feel content. Overall, would recommend.

I'm a big fan of Sinema and have always had great food and service there. But this time it was really slow, food wasn't prepared to specifications and it took a really long time to get started. I'll go back as this is my first less than stellar visit.

The kitchen was running very behind which didn’t make sense because there weren’t a lot of people in the restaurant at all. Come hungry if you’re doing bottomless brunch because $30 a person is expensive! It was good, not sure if I would go back because of the price and bad service

Service was great and attentive without being overbearing. Sommelier was helpful. The only issue was that the starters were served a bit too cool, both the meatballs and agnolotti needed to be warmer. We told the waiter who apologized and was going to speak with the kitchen.

Main course (short ribs and scallops) were served perfectly and were delicious.

We will definitely be back!
