Re: “2 Rivers Grille

Have been going there once a month for 13 years with a dining group that has been going for 20 years. Great food in the class and comfort of a Marriot Hotel. They have many breads,pastries,fresh fruits,blintz's,turkey sausage,yogurt and granola plus all the sides that go with them. A very nice staff that's professional and no parking problems. A recent million dollar renovation makes this a soothing way to start your day. You will leave full and happy.

Re: “Nero's Grill

This restaurant closing is a tragedy for so many wonderful customers as well as the great long term employees with families , I just do not understand why anyone would leave negative comments at a time like this-idiots!

John and Judy, you have done so very much for so many people and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Wishing you well in all your future endeavors -we love you!

Peace, love and joy to all.

Re: “Firefly Grille

We have been to Firefly many times. It is one of our favorite restaurants in Nashville. It is a very laid back, unstuffy restaurant with some of the best food in town. I love how the chef seasonally changes the menu. The bar is small but the bartenders are "mixologists" who continually serve interesting concoctions. The atmosphere gives an eclectic, bohemian feel which matches staff and owner. Love the place!!!! PS--the desserts are also unbelievable!!

Re: “The Silly Goose

Each sandwich is its own triumph! Rod, the chef, has mastered the art of simplicity married with complexity in each gourmet sandwich, salad, and dessert. There is no wrong choice, everything I have tasted on the menu is superlative and inventive!! The wine list is excellent, and a variety of other non-alcoholic options are also available. It's a small restaurant, so prepare to wait. Also, prepare to be blown away...

Re: “The Yellow Porch

My wife and I set out about two years ago to work our way through the local restaurants by having a Saturday lunch at a different restaurant every week. The Yellow Porch has certainly made tour goal difficult as we seem to have been pulled back to this (almost) hidden treasure in Berry Hill.Of late we seem to find excuse to route our errands down Thompson Lane and oh! There's The Yellow Porch. Let's grab a quick cup of celery bleau cheeze soup as long as we're this close. We are always treated as friends dropping in and not as customers and as we look around it seems everyone else has the same impression. Please keep up the good work.

Re: “Bound'ry Restaurant

After having a wonderful experience at the bar we were seated to experience 1 star service. After having to choose from a limited menu.... Some food came out cold and others came out just plain inedible. We did have a party of 8 and knowing how that can be I can understand some confusion. After waiting nearly 1 hour and 45 minutes for our bill WE had to search for a manager.. The managers were just as confused as the waiter... There was nothing they would do other than pay for a round of drinks while they figured bills out (which was nice) but nothing other.. After bad food and bad service we will not be setting foot back in this restaurant... Please don't waist your money or time.. There are other restaurants in town to spend your time and money!

Re: “Fido

Great food, Great atmosphere, good service. Definitively recommend to anyone. Finally a healthy restaurant that's not seriously overpriced.

Re: “A Matter of Taste Fine Catering

What an awesome little hideaway restaurant. The food is always fresh, delicious and organic. Try the special of the day, I eat it weekly and it never disappoints!

Re: “Mad Platter

My husband and I thought we would catch a nice dinner before meeting friends downtown later in the evening. On the Saturday night of 8/26/12 (8pm seating), the restaurant was only 30% full with no one waiting for a table. Now we know why:

The kitchen and/or server lost our dinner order for over an hour; the waitstaff was apologetic but nonplussed (i.e., "this happens all the time") .

My husband requested no onions in one dish which, when finally delivered an hour and a half after ordering, was chock full of onions - with much more onions than any normal recipe might have reasonably been expected to include (Shrimp and grits), which felt like an intentional slight after an hour and a half of waiting for the order.

Duck and gnocchi: Duck breast was properly prepared (juicy and rare) but gnocchi was dry (undercooked) and the dish had no sauce to speak of on the plate.

We are extremely easy to please and aren't true foodies. The restaurant did comp the Shrimp and grits and offered a dessert gratis, which was a good effort to appease. However, we can't return here with clients or friends due to the uncertainty of the food and service, so we will not be back.

I should also point out to the dating community that the atmosphere is dreary and spartan and therefore Mad Platter is not a good choice to impress a dinner date.

Perhaps you'll have better luck.

Re: “Criallo's Bistro & Bar [Closed]

The place is closed. And, rightly so, as it went slowly down hill.

Re: “Sambuca

We got married this year at Sambuca and brought our own priest, family, and friends. The staff and special indoor accomodations were perfect. Everyone enjoyed their delicious meals and drinks on the patio afterwards. I have been to Sambuca many times before and have always had a great experience. Glad that my wife and guests had a good time. Fun times... see you guys soon!

Re: “Raz'z Jazz Bar and Grill

I have been eating here since he opened his first site on Murfreesboro road and have continued to support him with his Smyrna site. However, after last night I will not visit either site again. I had the worst experience I have had up to date, from this restaurant (Murf. Road) or any restaurant for that matter.

I took my mom out for a Mother's day dinner, where I have taken her many, many years before since the food and service was always outstanding here. We arrived at 6:05, got seated. No one took our drink order, addressed us, acknowledged us until 6:14 - I was ready to leave, but my mom wanted to stay - I couldn't get anyone's attention to ask for our server. Our server was somehow medicated, not sure by what, but her speech and eyes were not normal. She took our order, we got our drinks, salad and bread. She then "verified" what we had ordered (she had written down, but couldn't read her writing).

The table behind was trying to tackle their server also, but their service was great compared to ours.

At 6:45 I went to the bar and asked to speak with a manager (1st time I requested a manager), the bartender assured me our food was coming.

At 6:50, here comes our food. My mom's order was correct, however, mine was no where near what I ordered - even after writing it down and verifying again. We were told mine was on it's way.

So, my mom ate and at 7:15 here came my food - my mom was done - they never told me it had to be cooked, never checked on me from 6:50 to 7:15. I asked four waitresses, including the bartender, for a manger 7 times. I was told Razz's wife was in the back and that was the only manager there. I never saw anyone except the bartender. No manager even attempted to come by our table.

She brought out my food - which I had requested to be cancelled 25 mins prior. She offered to take my portion off the bill. I told her I did not expect to pay for anything since I did not get to have dinner with my mother, on mother's day. I did not end up paying, but I think that is because I was getting louder with my frustration and they wanted me out of there.

This did not seem to be an "off" night to me. I know that Razz's brother was in the kitchen, I saw him. It is very sad that we were treated like this, from a place that I have visited since it opened. The last few times I ate at the Smyrna location, the service and food was also off - not to this degree, but enough to be noticed. I would say I eat here about once or twice every three months.

If you hit it on a good night, I'm sure it's good. I just wont be going back to either location to find that good night. It is a Mother's day that will not be forgotten - that's for sure.

Re: “Nero's Grill

I am using the recipe for Nero's Famous Scalded Corn Cakes today with my fish. I have used this recipe since in came out in the February 1976 issue of Ford Times magazine. My husband found the recipe and suggested that we try it since he doesn't eat hushpuppies. We live in middle Georgia and have never been to the restaurant in Nashville but love the corn cakes.

Re: “tayst [closed]

Just ok. I had much higher expectations for Tayst, especially as an award-winning restaurant. The food was mediocre and the server had no knowledge of the menu.
