Re: “International Market And Restaurant

I dont know how ANYONE can give this place anything else except 5 or more stars. I love their food. Exspecaly the shu- mi, Bamboo shoots & Chicken in curry sauce, fried rice, beef with green peppers and other delights. Chicken on a stick, egg rolls so much more delicious food I could eat it all. It has a very uniquie atmosphere. The people there are always friendly and omg the smell of the food makes your mouth water before you even see the food, GO THERE DON'T MISS OUT. A loyal diner for many many years!!!!

Re: “Sip Cafe

On a hot afternoon, swing by here and grab some delicious Mikes Ice cream. They have a fun variety of flavors... may I suggest coffee and red velvet cake! Super rich and creamy! Small cups start at $3.50

This cute little coffee shop also offers some local art to enjoy while waiting line, and if you like it, at home. It's right next to Mitchell Delicatessen and within walking distance of a few other cool vintage/artsy shops.

Re: “Bailey and Cato Family Restaurant

The words "deep fried cornbread" echoed in my mind for months after reading an article about Bailey and Cato on the Bites blog. The other day, i just so happened to be in the neighborhood and decided to give it a go. It was a low key Sunday afternoon, not to busy and as I waited in line, I pondered the menu. The special of the day? Brown gravy meatloaf with two veg for $6? Classic fried chicken with two veg $7 ($7.5 for white meat)? or do i go the BBQ route. The pork shoulder sandwich sounded good too (around $4.50). Decisions, decisions. As i approached the front counter, I could visually begin to narrow down my options. In the end, I opted for the smoked white meat chicken ($7.5). For my two sides i got greens and creamed corn, and of course, the reason this establishment had beckoned to me in the first place, the deep fried corn bread. With a bottle of water, the tab was 9 bucks and some change. I paid, grabbed my food and headed for a table outside.

Overall, it was not the culinary adventure I had hoped. The chicken was dry, really dry. I know it was white meat chicken, but it was DRY. The flavor of the chicken was awesome, deep and robust. The greens were good. The corn was tasty, and the deep fried cornbread was good, but a bit bland. A side of honey for dipping would have been nice.

Will I go back? Yes, with a maybe...

Re: “Ri'Chard's Louisiana Cafe

As a New Orleans native, I sincerely enjoyed and appreciated Ri'chard's Cafe'. There are a few restaurants dishing up Cajun, Southern and Creole cuisine in the Nashville Area but Ri'chard's offers "Langiappe"! That's French for, "A little bit extra". The food is delicious and the atmosphere is laid back and friendly. Richard Trest, the owner, is a working owner. Along side his restaurant staff, he cooks, cashiers brings food to the tables and even sits in with live bands contributing his awesome guitar playing or slapping the cajon but that's still not all! Richard is an accomplished musician himself and enjoys performing his own music for his patrons. It's all part of the experience expected and well-delivered at this establishment. Step into Ri'chard's Cafe' and find yourself in the deep south where the shrimp are frying and the file' gumbo is steaming. You may have just found your new kitchen-away-from-home! I did!

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: “House of Pizza/Joey's House of Pizza

Best NY-style pizza in Nashville! Now Joey's has moved to Elm Hill Pike (just off Fesslers Lane) and is only open for lunch on weekdays. Brentwood location is no longer there...

Re: “Mitchell Delicatessen

Brian, maybe you should grow a beard and get some thick-framed glasses, then the service would improve for you (Mitchell's=Hipster Territory). When I was there, twice, the service was efficient (not rude); but there's a fine line between the two. The food? Meh. And way overpriced. Not really a deli, more of a sandwich shoppe. Folks who don't know the difference are happier with Mitchell's.

PS, Are the stars to rate Mitchells, the story about it, or the comments? Either way I vote 3.

Re: “Red Robin

they do their best to be of good service and to please each customer. Very friendly to regulars and seem to really care. Excellent customer service in my opinion. I have visited two other locations but West Nashville stands out above the rest. My favorite place by far

Re: “Back To Cuba Cafe

I recently got indulge at this little coffe shop with a great authentic cuban taste on the food, price is fair for what it is, a tasty and generous portions, cuban sandwich and medias noches are amazing, friut milkshakes are awesome as well. Empanadas on special at $1, crockets, and papa rellena (stuffed potato) only 1.50!
Now the best probably is the cuban coffee (like a espresso type of coffee) and the pastries and desserts mhmhmh, arroz con leche also.
As far as I knew, there are two rules at Back To Cuba Cafe, rule one, you should order as it reads on the menu (on spanish) and two, no texting while you eating... really?
Well, I kind of got clarify that they suggest and support no to text while you eating, not meaning not texting at the table, only while you eating and got your sacred food (a latin cultural tradition it seems like) but also the enviroment is friendly and not big deal about it, they took care well of our table and the patrons around while I was there.

Definetly I would recommend this little and unique cafe, food and table experience are good!

Re: “Mazatlan Mexican Restaurant

The food was great but they need to watch their language in Spanish. They need to realize that other people speak Spanish as well. I was very offended by the language they used.

Re: “Mellow Mushroom

Great pizza and beer selection. It is a bit pricey, but worth the money in the end.

Re: “P.S. Noodle Pot

Excellent excellent excellent! It's a very quaint little restaurant in an unassuming strip mall. Dimly lit and clean with a lot of atmosphere. I have read some reviews where people say the dishes are pricey, but this isn't McDonald's and you get what you pay for. Fresh food prepared very well and a LOT of it. Everything I had was phenomenal. You won't find this quality and flavor just anywhere. Well worth the drive!

Re: “Riviera Provincial Grill

My new favorite restaurant in Nashville. We had dinner at Riviera Grill tonight. It was truly wonderful; not just very good, but excellent. I've lived in Washington, DC and San Francisco, and I enjoy excellent French cuisine. We had steamed mussels in a white wine, cream and parsely sauce that was delicious. I had monkfish (my favorite and very hard to find) with bacon, roasted potatoes and balsamic reduction. My boyfriend had salmon, pappardelle pasta and a dill cream sauce. The chocolate mouse was perfect - light and airy like few know how to make. I haven't had chocolate mouse that enjoyable in years. I highly recommend it for lunch or dinner. Best of all it is reasonably priced - appetizers are $8 or less and entrees are $12-$20.


FYI - There is plenty of parking in back; so don't let the limited street parking deter you.

Re: “Sunflower Cafe

The food is excellent, but I'm
giving this restaurant a poor review because of their parking attendant. I went there today and was trying to exit the parking lot instead of park where he wanted me to, and he proceeded to pound on my window so hard I'm surprised it didn't break, and then yelled at me not to ignore him. I won't be returning, he really ruined the place for me.
