    We will not recommend or go back to Sinema. We made reservations months in advance for my husbands 70th birthday brunch. We were given the worst table in the restaurant. There were several tables open that could have accommodated our party of 6. I was told it was not a buffet and served per person. It was obviously a buffet line in the kitchen and they served us family style. The eggs, bacon, sausage, cheesy grits, hash, biscuit with gravy and chicken tortilla were old served COLD!!! The champagne was rock gut quality for the mimosa’s and by the glass. Our food came before we had anything to drink. The service was slow at best for refreshing our drinks. It’s not worth the drive. Otherwise it was perfect.

    Service was prompt and professional. We received entree items quickly but both entrees were NOT hot. The rib and potatoes were barely warm and were cold before meal could be consumed. It was tender but I did not like the flavor as it seemed to have way too much Rosemary. The Gnochhi had a good flavor and pasta was perfectly aldenti. We asked about bread for the pasta and the waitress said they have a roll service and brought 4 rolls in a cute cast iron skillet … but they cost ELEVEN dollars! Ridiculous I purchased the experience and my spouse was surprised and enjoyed the card but sadly the flowers were not as fresh as anticipated and partially wilted. I would not do this again. The noise level was very loud but the restaurant was almost full. The setting is unique and service attentive and entree presentation is appealing. therefore would give them a another try but order something different and forego the rolls.

    We went to Sinema for the first time to celebrate our anniversary. We absolutely loved our experience here! They seated us in a nice large booth upstairs that had privacy and plenty of space not to crowd the table as we were celebrating and ready to eat. Our server, Amanda, was the perfect amount of attentive, but also didn't interrupt us unnecessarily or hover. Food was delicious and Amanda gave us her app recommendations which did not disappoint at all. Mains were just as tasty and you do get a generous portion which made the price feel like a good value. Only negative was the cake we ordered for dessert had clearly been kept in a super cold refrigerator and it was still on the harder side and not as spongey and creamy as you'd expect cake and icing to be. Can't wait to bring family and friends who visit us here.

    I’ve been coming here for three years for brunch. Upstairs is the best spot to sit. Prices went up, but the food quality stayed the same. The menu has changed by one or two items in three years and that’s tough for me. The bottomless mimosa is too expensive, the bloody Mary garnishes taste old, like they were made a few days in advanced, don’t eat them. I’d die for a real coffee here. They only offer black, even Dennys has a latte on their menu. The atmosphere is really what brings up the ratings. If you popped in hospital lighting and traded out the cool seating for benches and booths, I don’t know that the food could compete with any other mid grade brunch in town. The scrambled eggs, and skillet potato’s def couldn’t stand up to ihops. Yuck. It’s Unfortunate. I think I’ll start looking for a new go-to to bring visitors from out of town to. It’s not enough to have decent aesthetic and stuff that’s “bottomless”. It’s also started to smell like folks have started smoking inside? If y’all gave the menu a facelift it would do wonders for the customers the love the vibe but can find better fare and beverage elsewhere, like Adele’s brunch.

    My wife and I came out for our 4 year anniversary. We both tried the sampling. At first we were very concerned that it wouldn’t be enough food, but by the end we we surprisingly full. Everything was absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection. The house Old Fashioned (and a recommended relative of) were both made perfect and so was the red blend that my wife had. It was all a little pricey, so if you don’t like spending $280 for dinner, a few drinks, and tip then don’t come here…but it was definitely a nice romantic evening with a good ambiance and great customer service.

    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!

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!
