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: “Bailey and Cato Family Restaurant

As far as meat-and-threes go, this one just doesn't hold up. The atmosphere is dumpy/awesome, but they skimp on some of the offerings, for instance it's an abomination for a meat-and-three restaurant to serve fake mashed potatoes like B&C does. I get take-out only as it's usually really busy and has little room. We have eaten here several times, and have never been fully impressed. If you're in the mood for soul food, Southern Bred (five minutes away) has MUCH better food and plenty of room to sit.

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: “J. Alexander's

We placed our name on the waiting list ahead of time (no reservations) so we were seated very quickly. Very pleasant service, attentive but not hovering and server was very knowledgable about the menu. We had a variety of entrees, tuna steak, beef tacos and a filet. Salad was excellent, tacos were acceptable, tuna was well prepared. The filet came medium well instead of medium rare. The room is very "alive" acoustically. So if you want a quiet, intimate dinner you might look elsewhere. Food to value ratio is ok. We'd try again.

Re: “Wild Bill's Beignets & Bikes [Closed]

This place is working people and not paying them. They are operating the roof top deck with any running water, no way for employees to wash their hands. The food is completely overpriced... 15 bucks for a chicken finger basket. This place sucks. DO NOT EVER GO HERE

Re: “Brewhouse 100

We eat there several times per month. Originally we tried it because of the LACK of flies as compared to the other pub nearby.

Now we go for the excellent soup and burgers and beer specials.

The only 'service' problem we ever had was one night when the place was packed and there was a 20 minute wait to get a table.

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: “Sambuca

My wife took me on my birthday and we both loved it. Jason, our server, was very attentive and concerned about our experience. I had the filet which melted in my mouth and my wife, who is vegetarian, they made her something that was not on the menu but loaded with vegis and tasted great. The entire experience was great, I'll be sure to go back.

Re: “August Moon [Closed]

Well, my search continues for the best Chinese in Nashville. I thought that from their awards and other reviews I had read that this may be it, but I was saddly dissapointed. I don't judge a place on looks so I will leave that alone, but the food was not up to standards. As it was my first venture at this place, I started with the staples: General tso's, fried rice, egg drop soup. The other three in my group had similar standard items. NONE of us came close to finishing our meals. The sauces tasted as if they had scraped the bottom of a 5 gallon drum of generic sauce they bought from Walmart. Egg drop soup was equally disappointing. Even the ice in our drinks tasted gross. Needless to say, I will never go back.

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: “Flying Saucer Draught Emporium

The Saucer is one of the best places to enjoy microbrews in a town with increasing choices. Service can be uneven and the food is unexceptional, but the staff trains regularly on the vast array of beer selections and the bartenders in particular are knowledgeable. If you are over twenty five you might prefer the vibe at happy hour and during weekend days as the place can become inundated with Vandy students on late evenings. Special events include beer tastings, a trivia night and live music from consistently average retro and alternative bands.

Re: “The Chile Burrito Co.

I love this place! I eat lunch here at least once a week and they have consistently good food every time. You will not leave hungry or poor, as the food is all fresh plentiful and well priced.

Re: “Urban Flats [Closed]

I don't feel it's really fair to give a restaurant only 1 star based on your dislike of the parking situation.

Here's a REAL review of the actual restaurant.

Pleasant interior, much sleeker and more upscale than you'd expect based on the menu. Food is fresh and freshly prepared. Decent wine selection. Nothing knocked my socks off, but I've never been disappointed with what I ordered. A lot will depend on whether you like the concept and flavor combinations (I do). A perfectly decent casual chain concept that feels more sophisticated than a casual chain concept, and a good choice for lunch or an inexpensive dinner choice before heading out to downtown events.

Re: “Pizza Perfect

Undoubtedly Nashville's best pizza. Local and fresh, the calzones!
