    Beautiful Restaurant, really good service. I tried the tasting menu & it was 50/50. Course 1 and 3 were mediocre (salad and scallop) course 2 and 4 were really good. The shortrib was excellent but the carrots were raw, so it was hard to eat, I couldn’t cut them. Overall for $75 it was fun but not really worth the value. My friend had the chicken and it was just roasted chicken on a pile of fingerling potatoes. We were kind of shocked that for $36 chicken entree there was no veggie or sauce. The restaurant was trying to accommodate her dairy free request so it’s likely that jeopardized the integrity of the dish. The desserts were great and the cocktails were by far the best cocktail I have ever had in my life. It’s worth it to just come for drinks and apps bc the drinks are absolutely incredible. Our service was the best and we would come again I just wouldn’t do the tasting menu!

    This place did not disappoint me. It was absolutely important. I'm going to start with my one con, which would be parking. We got there at a great time when somebody else was leaving but I can tell that it can get crazy with two restaurants right next door to each other. Other than that, that was my ONLY con. Our service was amazing and our food was amazing. We literally tried everything - definitely had our favorites. This place would be great for a date or brunch with friends. 100% would recommend it.

    Went for Saturday brunch while in town with friends. The space is beautiful (bathroom included)! The food was amazing. Oh goodness, the fried chicken, yum. Server was good, but busy and had to be reminded of refills of bottomless Bloody Marys. Only thing that seemed missing, given this is Nashville, was some live music. That would make the price feel a little more appropriate too.
