    I got the scallops and they were just a little too salty for my taste. 6/10 . My friend got the short ribs and she gave them a 5/10. The rest of my party got chicken and they gave it a 1/10.

    TJ was awesome. He recommended a great drink (called a rude boy) and a great appetizer - the ravioli. He was an absolute joy. Our main course was great, too. We enjoyed a cookie desert as well. We really enjoyed the atmosphere. It felt comfortable, open, beautiful design. We loved meeting two managers! We’re coming back for brunch in a few weeks and I’ve recommended my parents come here too. It’s evident this place is fairly popular, and I can see why. The drink menu looked incredible. I would love to come and just have drinks and appetizers. We really enjoyed it for a date night and can’t wait to come back.

    The food and atmosphere were wonderful! We greatly enjoyed our server Yaz, and had a great experience at the restaurant. The food was incredible, I can’t recommend the buratta, agnolotti, and scallop entree enough. We also greatly enjoyed the drinks! Garden party and scooby doo drinks were our favorites.

    By far one of the best restaurants I have been to! The Best of the Best meal option with wine pairing was phenomenal! I spoke with Carly and Yaz they were AMAZING! They made my experience so welcoming and enjoyable. I also enjoyed getting to meet and talk with Roger, who created Left Hand Path with is an amazing drink that contains Angel’s Envy aged in chartreuse barrels (I have recently found a LOVE for chartreuse!). I’m so thankful I got to share with him how much I loved his drink plus I got a wonderful lesson in chartreuse! Will be coming back here again!

    Sinema never disappoints! I've enjoyed every brunch experience there. I took my husband for his first time on Father's Day and he was blown away by the ambiance, the delicious food (The Usual Suspects was his fave...we had several servings lol) and the service. Our waiter was also working the bar and he was engaging, attentive and made our brunch date special!

    We went to Cinema to celebrate my birthday (my choice!) for the first time and it definitely won’t be our last! What a wonderful experience. Great service by all of the staff involved, from those taking our orders to the ones delivering food and drinks. Several of us said the fried chicken was the best we’ve ever had, and the Bloody Mary- amazing and beautiful. All in all a wonderful time was had by all, can’t wait to come back!

    One of the best brunches ever in recent memory. The food is served family style. Please make it a point to try the cinnamon roll pancakes. The value is great if you are hungry and thirsty. $36 for food and $20 for booze. Each person at our party killed a bottle of champagne. Ambience is also really cool in respecting the integrity of the old theater that has been renovated.

    I spent many hours at the Melrose Theater between 1955 and 1968, when I left for college. Being back in the space for our 50th wedding anniversary dinner came with a major dish of nostalgia for us. The atmosphere and ambiance of Sinema is most welcoming. The graciousness of the staff was so comforting, and our anniversary was well-acknowledged throughout. Cindy our hostess, T.J. our server and a manager who stopped by our table all made sure that our experience was perfect. As to the food itself: the burrata appetizer was very flavorful and woke our taste buds up; the scallops over spinach orzetto, and the braised beef rib over some perfect whipped yukon gold potatoes were delicious and great choices. Finally, the stuffed skillet cookie dessert, while not leaving us stuffed, was a perfect cap to an excellent meal. Based on our experience at Sinema, I recommend it highly.

    By far our best dining experience in Nashville. We couldn’t fault any dish. All of our meals were delicious, well balanced, and well prepared. The agnolotti was by far our favorite. Staff is very attentive but not overbearing, and the ambience of the restaurant is awesome - refined but not too pretentious. Really great spot for date night or a celebration, and all the price points felt fair for what you were getting. We will be back again!

    Our service was a little spotty. The waiter got our drink order wrong and it took awhile to get it right. Once done correctly it was delicious. My husband got the tasting menu and his first course was the same as my first (of two) course and mine came out a long while before his did. After that the timing was much better. Food was very good!!

    Absolutely an incredible brunch experience. The food was amazing - you must have the jalapeño grits, biscuits and gravy, both flavors of pancakes and the potatoes that come with the usual suspects! Bottomless was a great deal and it was nice (and fast/efficient!) to be able to make your own mimosas. Staff was incredible and so kind and quick. Ambience is great. Definitely go if you can get a reservation! Oh - and the bathroom! Set aside some time to hang out and do a photo shoot!!

    Food was great and flavorful. We tried majority if not all items on the menu. My only suggestion is to season the chicken more and make it less greasy. Service was great. Their bathroom for women is my dream bathroom! Because it is a black owned business, I would have liked to see more African American movie stars on the wall. Other than that the space is beautiful . Great playlist for brunch.

    Food was ok. One dessert was stale. We went for a birthday celebration. Didn’t realize for party of 6 they automatically add 20 percent gratuity which is fine but we didn’t realize and we tipped on top of that. So pretty much double tipped. Drinks weren’t the best either. Maybe just caught in a bad day. But definitely feel they should have said they already added the gratuity.
