Re: “Brewhouse 100

I love this place. My wife and I eat there all of the time and while the service can occasionally be spotty, the food is sublime and the beer is always near icy cold. Highly recommend.

Re: “Flyte World Dining & Wine

For appetizers we had the Charcuterie platter w/duck prosciutto, mortadella, country pâté and cheese platter. Both of which were excellent. There was a wide variety of meats and cheeses. I think 5 of each in just the right proportions; each very unique and tasty. A great way to start off the meal, especially with wine.
The grilled octopus pesto sauce was the best I’ve ever had, and I’ve had a lot of bad octopus. It was tender (really) and so mild, yet tasty. It was a simple dish that highlighted the octopus; rather than buries it. I think it may have been smoked lightly – just plain wonderful. The Georgia shrimp w/leek fondue, spring peas, ramps, citrus was absolutely delicious. I could have eaten a bowl of the warm leek fondue and ramps. The pea puree burst of spring and made the dish rise to another level. The BBQ pork sliders on sweet potato biscuits were a disappointment. The biscuits were dry and there was the classic mistake that many non-Southern chefs make with BBQ – sauce should be used sparingly (not drenched) because BBQed meat is great by itself. The venison w/ mushrooms, spaghetti squash, and parsnips was excellent. Cooked perfectly to a medium rare, tender and flavorful.

The wine selection is superb. They know their wines and are happy to share their knowledge no matter how much or little you know about wine.
Wait staff and bartender are friendly and superb. Not only do they know the menu, they know the wines to pair with your choices. They are engaging - they listen to your preferences and ask questions before making suggestions. They are attentive and responsive with the littlest request such as a little more pesto to finish off the grilled octopus.
The ambience is simple elegance. The bar and dining area are far enough apart not to interfere with each other. It is a quiet, romantic and lovely restaurant.

Re: “Richie's Hot 'N' Spicy Kastle [Closed]

If Anthony Bourdain were visiting Nashville, I would take him to Richie's to get wings. Seriously. I used to visit the previous location in Madison and was really glad to track him down not too far away. I always get an order of wings and sometimes one of his chicken sandwiches which are very good. But the wings are the star here. I don't know what his secret is but it results in a great balance of spicy and a little sweet, fried just right with texture that makes me have to crunch on the bones too. Richie isn't much on decor but it's a clean and pleasant place to sit, and he is an attentive and courteous host. Note that the location has moved to Hendersonville, next to the skating rink at 750 West Main St. New phone is (615)348-0065.

Re: “Suzy Wong's House of Yum

I've become a big fan of the food and atmosphere at Suzy's. Food is always fresh, flavorful, and filling. The staff is professional, yet friendly. This is very creative, upscale Asian cuisine, not Panda Express. Expect bold flavors, rich sauces, and crunchy veggies. I enjoy the Yum bowls the most. Be sure to try the General Tso’s Shrimp (or Chicken). Excellent. The Deluxe Asian Nachos with pulled pork topping are also a great shared appetizer, or meal. The staff at the bar always make me feel welcome. I love this place, and make it a point to return often.

Re: “Yogurt Oasis [Closed]

I was nervous about checking this place out after reading the reviews, but it turns out it is under new management (since February 2011 I think they said)? I really dig this place. Comfy lounge area, quiet space, great yogurt. Can't beat it.

Re: “Ri'Chard's Louisiana Cafe

This place rocks. The food and music are great. The service is excellent. They have a treasure chest full of toys for the little ones. Richard the owner is originally from Louisiana and knows his Cajun cooking. They are also open on Saturdays from 12:30 to 9:00 so you can enjoy lunch and listen to some great up and coming writers at the Songwriters showcase hosted by Gary Cavanaugh. Some no. 1 writers have been known to drop in! Aieee and great etouffee!!

Re: “Woodlands

I can't believe this has not been reviewed!?!?! It is hands down the BEST Indian food in Nashville. I'm not a vegetarian, but I don't care when I'm here. Everything is that good. My favorites are actually on the Indo-Chinese portion of the menu which is very popular in India. If you are looking to blow your taste buds into the next stratosphere, try their: Hot & Sour Soup (better than most Asian restaurants), Szechwan Dosa (East meets, ummm, further East), and Paneer Chili (Chinese with Cheese, hell yeah!). You should also try the Salted Laasi which is better than I've had anywhere in the WORLD. The Chaats are are all pretty good as well. My wife and I usually go with the Papdi Chaat. The service is amazing, these guys don't walk, they run! And if you need awards on the wall to be convinced, they got plenty. Now stop reading my review and go to Woodlands!

Re: “La Hacienda Taqueria

Let's see where do I start?! Huge fan of the margaritas especially the strawberry one!!! Pair it with an order of fish tacos and rice or their enchiladas and I swear you'll be coming back for more... This is literally the only Mexican restaurant you can go to where they the food to your liking. The waiter and waitresses are super polite and it's great environment to bring family and friends. The cherry on the top is the fact that you can go next door and purchase the fresh tortillas that you just finished devouring a couple of minutes ago!!! Two thumbs up La Ha!!!

Re: “Brewhouse 100

I have never had a fly problem in the many times I have been either. Even when sitting outside. It is a great place, with great people, and service is good as well. My only complaint would be that children are allowed, but even with that, I have never been annoyed by the children. The food is awesome. It is a BAR(I would think the name Brewhouse would have given that away)... Evidentally the first reviewer has never been anywhere fun. People who ride Harley's must scare her because she doesn't know anyone that does ride a Harley. There are no gang fights or rumbles in the area.

Re: “1808 Grille

I visited 1808 when an old friend visited from New York. I wanted to find a place that would showcase Nashville and 1808 didn't disappoint.

Located in the Hutton Hotel, the decor is tasteful and modern and tables are arranged for both openess and privacy.

We chose the $18.08 Special, which was a grilled fish that evening. Flavors were subtle and delicious in the entree and all of the sides. My young daughter had a surprisingly affordable children's entree. We opted for dessert, aso top notch.

Service was attentive without being intrusive and the friendly waiter didn't talk down to us. This restaurant offers great value for the quality of food and service. Highly recommended.

Re: “Wendell Smith's

Everyone who is anyone from Nashville knows where to go for the best meat and three in Tennessee. Wendell's With the same recipes they have had for 60 years and fresh warm banana pudding out of the oven. There is nothing on the menu that isn't by itself the best food around town. And the hospitality is always warm and they know your name.

Re: “417 Union

This is a great venue, not only for eating, but the upstairs dining room doubles as a gallery for local artists. The current exhibit is by photographer, Nancy Diana, and features her "Signs of Life: Nashville - Part I & 2" series, her "Sustenance" series, and many of her landscapes of Middle Tennessee. Here's a link to many of the photos being shown:…

Re: “Brewhouse 100

Our family LOVES this place. The food is a different fare---spicier and more original than the other sports bar right down on the other side of the plaza. Bugs happen here in Tennessee; and I've yet to find one in my food, beverage or crawling across my table! And that's what really counts, right!? The food is excellent! And, yes, it does have a Harley Davidson atmosphere because Brewhouse markets itself as a BIKER BAR. That doesn't mean the staff and patrons are scum. We love the change in scenery from the usual Nashville "Golf Club" atmosphere and don't mind dining with those in denim and leather attire. The Classic Rock in the background is a gift to our ears while my husband and I eat and our young children watch the sports channels. This place is family, biker, Date Night and Ladies Night friendly. If it wasn't, my family wouldn't eat there at least once a week! Keep up the great work Brewhouse 100!
