The Yellow Porch
The Yellow Porch is a food oasis, complete with small patio garden, located on Thompson Lane in Berry Hill. Opened in 1998 as one of a handful of independently owned restaurants in Nashville doing casual fine dining, it has always been loved for its displays of local art inside, its friendly, talented staff and an inviting setting. The cozy and intimate dining room is a great place for a power lunch or romantic dinner and the charming outdoor patio area with surrounding greenery offers a refreshing dining experience. The Yellow Porch is creative in its food offerings, with a seasonal menu that boasts Mediterranean influences. The wine list is selected with a nod toward the unique, well-priced "find" and the full bar ranges from time-honored staples to local and boutique spirits.

Great dinner with our wonderful friends
We love the Yellow Porch!
The menu was limited. The waiter kept having to leave our table to get something he missed.
My wife specifically said Gluten free. Her meal came with bread on it. They had to remake it while my meal sat and got cold.
I wasn’t impressed.
Great dinner outside. Food was good and the service was very attentive. Highly recommend.
Our server Todd was great. The food is delicious but I would like to see the menu changed more frequently. There are always daily specials for food and wine. Todd was very knowledgeable about food and wine.
Yellow Porch is always amazing! Great food and people every time.
Amazing dinner last night at yellow porch. The staff is always so friendly and good.
We will go back again!
First get together with these friends in over a year due to Covid and so enjoyed the time eating outdoors as bonus
We had a great meal and terrific service! We ate inside, and there was a very loud group celebrating a birthday right next to us, so that was the only thing that was less than desirable. Loved the food!
Food was outstanding! All four entrees were just excellent. Really enjoyed the paella, the duck and the seafood special. Service was top notch, too. We have definitely added The Yellow Porch to our short list of go to restaurants. Very nice meal without killing the bank account.
Todd took great care of us and the food was delicious.
We loved it! Service, food.. all of it! Thank you!
Other than not having the filet that we went there for, the food was superb as always. However, I ended up getting the paella and wasn’t enough to feed my 6 year old.
The food was absolutely delicious and our server Todd was outstanding!
The serving of halibut was too small
Todd is always great! I love this place and am SO GLAD that the pandemic didn't shut them down and to be able to return. Another excellent meal, service and evening. Thank you.
Great service and food was really good. We sat out on patio which made for a great evening.
Started with lamb meatballs and for dinner we got stuffed trout and beet salad with Cajun shrimp. Everything was very delicious.
Excellent food. Came out piping hot and with amazing flavor. Will definitely come back.
Always wonderful! The blue cheese celery soup is a must!!
Once again an excellent experience all the way around. The food is always great, and Todd and Adam always make us feel at home. Still my favorite Nashville restaurant.
Good food with great service. A quaint dining room.
We met out of town friends that we hadn't seen for a long time. We had recommended the food to our friends and we were pleased, but not surprised, that they loved it. We also appreciated not being rushed. Definitely recommend.
We shared the crab cake to start (delish) and then ordered the roasted chicken and the grouper special for our entrees. Everything was very tasty and cooked perfectly!
Our only issue was with the service. Though our waiter was very helpful and super friendly, we had to wait about 15 minutes after we’d finished eating before we saw him and were able to ask for a box and we had empty waters for a while during our meal. Normally these things wouldn’t matter much to me, but when you are paying this much for a meal, I’d expect a more attentive staff.
All in all, would go back for sure! Lots more I’d like to try!
Service was very good even short handed. Server was very knowledgeable about the menu. Food was very tasty, served steaming hot. Generous portions.
good food great service. will definitely go back again soon
Great for a d ate night. Pan-seared grouper was outstanding!
Interesting menu with comfort options and new interesting specials.
One of our favorite spots to eat, but you don’t have to go into busy downtown. The food is always spot on. Great wine. Awesome service.
One of our favorites always. So helpful with Take out during Covid. So glad to be back in person.
Dinner was awesome last night!
Messed up getting our order in. After wine was ordered, opened and 1/2 a class drank they informed us that they ran out of the entree may date ordered. Troubling part was they delivered the entree we ordered to a table near us that was seated and ordered way after us. They did take off both our entrees from our bill but the second choice entree wasn’t that great and it didn’t go with the wine we were drinking. Our special evening out was screwed up. They acted as if it wasn’t their fault they ran out of the entree and didn’t seem to get that they messed up the entire meal. I kinda felt like they were taking care of a regular customer by diverting the entree we ordered to that table that ordered much later. Anyway I didn’t appreciate it and can’t imagine returning
They call ,a very spicy soup with some seafood, a paella. I will not come back.
You can never go wrong at the Yellow Porch. Great wine list. Amazing Entrees and the Fritters appetizers are Dreamy! Not to mention the excellent service and overall ambience. Ask for Todd!
We enjoyed amazing food and drinks for the birthdays and Mother's Day celebration we had as a family.
The waiter was very informative and helpful with our entree choices. The food was excellent. We will definitely go back.
The only thing that could’ve been better was if I had a different date 🤣 delicious food and great service! Hidden gem I plan to revisit!
Another great meal. The beet salad never disappoints! Hubby loved the Paella.
43 Anniversary. We make it a point to go to Yellow Porch fir it if we are in town. We love the food and the service.
Absolutely first-rate n every way. We loved it!
Still my favorite restaurant in Nashville. The food is ALWAYS outstanding. We always ask for Todd, and he takes great care of us. On the rare occasion that Todd isn't there, Adam is always ready to take great care of us too. Love the place and the people.
