Wild Iris Ratings and Reviews
Wild Iris is my favorite lunch spot and this was my first dinner here. I love that you can get Gott Cab by the glass! It was wonderful. Rib Steak was well prepared, sauce was excellent. Loved their Crème Burlee, can't recommend the Bread Pudding, it had good flavor and caramel sauce but a rubbery texture. Great service!
This local place still has the great menu and service its had for years. The fresh taste and good Chief gives the place an edge over the chain places in the area. Great for a date or special occasion. Service has never been bad at anytime though out the seasons. Prices have crept up but quality still is king.
First time, while on a visit to Nashville. Good food. Loved the fried green tomatoes, shrimp and grits, and Penne Bettola. Aperol Spritz were very refreshing. Good wine list. Attentive, friendly wait staff. Generous shot of Drambuie for my dessert, wife had Coconut pie which was excellent.
We were in town for my aunt's funeral. I was with my Mom who is handicapped and in a wheel chair. I hate to leave anything negative because our meal was delicious and our server was perfect but the restaurant was very inaccessible for the handicapped. There was a ramp that had a large bump and 2 patrons got up from their tables to help me get her over the bump into the restaurant. The way the cars were parked and where the ramp started forced me to take her in front of a car and cement block at the front of parking space. (hard to explain). That opening between the car and the fence around the patio that I had to wheel her through was so narrow that her shoulder was touching the car. Anyway, it was just hard at the end of a hard, emotional day for us. I just thought the restaurant would like to know for future handicapped patrons. But thank you so much for an excellent dinner!
We looked for a restaurant close to our hotel in Brentwood, TN, and found that Wild Iris was just 4 minutes away. The food, cocktails, and wine were outstanding. The highlights were the rare tuna, PEI mussels, lemon creme brulee, and coconut sushi (dessert). If we travel back again to the Nashville area, we would dinner there again. Gluten free options are available.
Sat promptly without wait. Server was the perfect combination of friendly, informative and attentive. Wine poured at the appropriate time and courses arrived at just the right interval. Brussels sprouts appetizer was tasty but a bit al denté for our tastes. Rare tuna with couscous and avocado cremè was enjoyable but I didn't expect it to be a totally cold dish. Would've preferred the cremè not totally under the couscous. Still delicious, tho. My friend enjoyed her salmon and risotto. The desserts, however, were our favorites. Definitely order the Coconut "Sushi" or the Lemon cremè brûlée, if they are available. I could've eaten more of them! Would definitely consider dining here again if I am traveling this way in the future.
White wine sangria was really good. Caesar salad was good / croutons were spicy. Cheese plate was okay - very petite for sharing. Bread / olive oil was very good.
I got the smoked chicken pot pie - should have saved that choice for fall or winter. Didn't go with the summer heat. Too many potatoes and not enough chicken for me, but good broth and pastry top.
Bathroom door very difficult to shut and you have to walk through the servers area to get there. Atmosphere kind of cramped and not in a great way. There are better places in Nashville for sure, but if you don't want that drive, it's good.
My husband and I met up with two other couples as we were all in the area for a wedding. We had reservations...our table was set for us and we were seated immediately. Brenna was our server and she took excellent care of us. We tried several items from the specials menu...the food was delicious! We highly recommend Wild Iris!
Nice neighborhood place in an unassuming strip center. The Brussel Sprouts were amazing-very different in a sauce that is delicious. Dip the good bread in the sauce. The salads were very good and I had a French Rose that was light and fresh. The pot pie had a flavor I didn't love so it was my least favorite thing, but overall the service and food were outstanding.
Wild Iris was such a disappointment. We were the only group in the restaurant, and the service was less than impressive. The menu selection looked excellent, but only one of the three of us was satisfied with our meal. He ordered the steak and eggs, and while it was good, the steak was served room temperature. The waitress dropped a beer all over the table, and barely apologized. I am the first to say that this spill could have happened to anyone, but her attempt at making it right was not satisfactory. Needless to say, we will not be back.
The food was great. There were seven in the group and the server handled us well. The brick chicken, shrimp and grits, salmon, and ahi tuna were all delightful. This night was unusual in that there was a horrible accident on I 65 causing the amount of time getting there to double. 15 minutes turned into 45 minutes; 30 - 35 minutes into over an hour. The trip was well worth it. Thank you Wild Iris for being patient with the late arrivals.
We have been coming here for several years. You could consider us regulars. Menu has been constricted recently and The smoked chicken pot pie was tasty but was dry and had few pieces of chicken.
There was a time when every meal was wonderful and I have to say the last couple of times we've been here it was somewhat disappointing. Decor needs a total refresh it is tired.
We celebrated our moms birthdays - 2 families so there was 12 of us- they took great care of us. The food was delicious and came out at the same time, the service was top notch, not easy with a big group.
I have eaten at Wild Iris for lunch & dinner several times, always a good experience. I am glad we chose this for our special occasion.
Sorry to write this review about a long standing local restaurant. Had not been here in quite some time, and took a friend for her birthday. Food was average at best. Salads had so little dressing on them you couldn't taste. Specialty drink was so bad we had to send back and get wine. Worst thing was upon leaving we visited restroom! I the smell in there was horrid!! Worse than any gas station I've stopped at on interstate!
Such a welcome relief from the corporate restaurants that dominate Brentwood. You can have a cozy chat with your companion without the competing clamor of what seems to be called "lively" these days. The modern menu has tasty preparations to please everyone but could use more range of flavors in the starters/small plates section. Super personable staff remained discrete and eased us through our evening. We'll be back next time in town.
We enjoyed our dinner recently at Wild Iris. The staff was very friendly and helpful with all our questions. The wine was excellent. There are paintings on the walls by an excellent local abstract painter. There is a small quaint bar if you're just stopping by for a drink or a glass of wine. Wild Iris is handy for those in the Brentwood area. The location among several stores in a nice little strip mall is not the Ritz, but they have done a very good job to create a nice ambience inside, which we appreciated. We will go back!
