American | Nashville, Nashville

Henrietta Red is our favorite restaurant in Nashville. It's our special occasion/treat friends and family restaurant. We love the oyster menu selection and we love that we've never had a single mediocre dish in over a dozen visits. All the food is seasonal, fresh, inventive and delicious. The desserts are very good, seasonal and break from the bread pudding, creme brûlée over presence in much of even the other very good restaurants in Nashville. And we loved our server from our last visit Erin Alanna. She was really helpful and an overall doll. More

Loved our meal at Miel. The bacon peach cornbread was amazing, our table especially enjoyed the short ribs and fish dishes. Our person who has lots of allergies was accommodated without a problem and her meal was perfect and yummy. Both the desserts we ordered were yummy. Hubby loved the peach crumble, and took home the remaining for a next day treat. The service was very friendly, but very busy. She did her best with the number of tables she was covering. Would highly recommend Miel. A lovely evening. More

Scrapple appetizer was mind blowing. I came for the chicken (heard it was amazing) and it was good. It was perfectly cooked, tender, and very moist. The kale salad was phenomenal and the potatoes were delicious. I would definitely come back. Love the ambiance but what really impresses me was the service. Very attentive and polite and that is the most important thing. Great Job! More

We were in Nashville for the weekend and passed this place so we decided to go back for breakfast. The food was excellent, service was quick and friendly, and the ambience was very nice. We were seated on the 4th floor by the window, which was perfect since it was a beautiful day. The only small complaint was the price of the drinks. I had a mimosa and my husband had a Bloody Mary and they were each $12, but drinks seem expensive overall in Nashville. More

Discover Nashville

Nashville prides itself on being Music City, USA, but the food in Nashville is every bit as good as the music. Begin your day with red velvet pancakes in Midtown, grab a high-end burger in the 12South District for lunch, and end your day with gourmet cupcakes in Germantown. Every part of town has something to offer. You can enjoy fine Southern dining, authentic Mexican food, or a meal in one of the unique Honky-Tonk country bars. You'll also find great places to sit on rooftops, enjoying a unique cocktail and maybe some South American flavors. You may even bump into a singer or songwriter while you're out and about.
