Re: “Rumours Wine And Art Bar [Closed]

I visit Rumours on a regular basis. The food choices are are limited but fresh and delicious. The cheese plate and hummus are generous and I typically request extra crackers and bread. The wine can be expensive but Rumours does run specials so ask your server. The service is good (prompt and friendly). I love to sit on the patio on nice evenings. Rumours is great for a girls night or date night.

Re: “Jasmine

My husband really enjoy this restaurant. Our favorite Thai restaurant is Basils Asian Bistro. But we decide to switch up one day and tried Jasmines. We have tried several dishes. But, the Massman Curry and Spring Rolls and their homemade ice cream (mango & Coconut) are the ones that stand out the most. The Massman curry is served with Potatoes & carrots & red onion, but we always add chicken. They serve it wrapped in a Crepe. Well its actually thicker than a crepe. Not sure what it is. Then they sprinkle it with Peanuts, and fresh Cilantro. I usually venture out and try other dishes, but hands down this is the best on the menu. The pad thai, was good. but honestly I dont remember it, so I guess its kind of forgetful. Service is always great. We enjoy this place.

Re: “Mellow Mushroom

Mellow's crust is out of this world. Get the Kosmic Karma, it's increíble. The service overall is pretty good, except last time I went there was this new hostess (the one with blond hair, short, young, with ear gauges)...she was extremely unfriendly and made my party and me feel like we were very un-welcomed. But overall it's great food and service, just that one girl was really off...the only reason I'm not rating it 5 stars

Re: “Gerst Haus

I've been going to the "new" Gerst Haus for years and always have had great food. The sausage sampler is great, as is the schnitzel. The kraut ball appetizer is always hard to pass up. They also have more traditional American food like chicken strips, burgers, etc. for the unadventurous. Very entertaining environment, even for families...especially when live German music is there. They also have a fantastic beer selection. The only criticism I have is that service can sometimes be lackluster and it can take awhile to get food sometimes. But well worth it.

Re: “Sol [Closed]

The food and service were great. This isn't the usual formula Mexican food found in national or local chains. The menu is well thought out and it all works with an upscale twist. Don't miss the Pollo Relleno.

Re: “Gold Rush

While they did "clean up" the Gold Rush, they also cleaned out much of the essence that made it the greatest bar in Nashville. It could use a bit more warmth...too many tall tables and stools were put in during renovation. Having a few boothes in the front room would help the atmosphere greatly. It has to potential to be great once again, but as it stands I visit out of nostalgia and because it was my home away from home for many years. This bar could really be great again, I still give it a decent rating out of loyalty, but they should try to cater to their old clientele if they want to become truly successful again.

Re: “Noshville

great place for a Dr. Brown's soda, corned beef on rye (no cheese, no vegetables) with lots of brown spicy mustard! dessert of black and white cookies is a must! if you haven't tried these imported delicious items, stop what you are doing and drive to one of the noshville locations now!

Re: “Buca Di Beppo

It was absolutly delicious! Their fried mozerella is wonderful and so is their Ceasar salad! It's quite pricey, but well worth it for an occasional family dinner on the town.

Re: “Beacon Light Tea Room

I grew up eating at the Beacon Light and I greatly enjoyed eating there. It has a very down home atmosphere. You felt comfortable to come in your Sunday Best or just jeans and a t-shirt. They serve good old country cooking.

Re: “Atlanta Bread [Closed]

An assortment of sandwiches and soups in bread bowls will satisfy you(they even have vegitarian options)! They also have a baked goods area.

Re: “Flying Saucer Draught Emporium

The saucer offers a very knowledgeable staff. They can tell you what beer you will probably like, even if you aren't much of a beer drinker. It is very relaxed and has lots of comfortable seating. The beer garden is a great place to hang out, especially when the garage doors are open.

Re: “Brewhouse 100

Yeah I agree this place is great! I've only been twice, but the draft selection is great, prices are great, and the staff is great...first reviewer obviously doesn't know what a bar and grill atmosphere is. Also I've never seen flies in there.

Re: “Valentino's

Experiences at Valentino's have been phenomenal. Why? Chef Paolo, A native of Naples, Italy, Valentino’s Ristorante Executive Chef, Paolo Tramontano, learned his love of cooking from his mother, that's from their site. I've been in an Italian family by marriage for 10 years. I know great authentic experiences when I see them, taste them, and "feel them".

I like to emphasize experiences. Food comes and goes but experiences are memories to be cherished.

Chef Paolo's treatment of food is not much different than my Italian mother in law. I last went in for lunch, yes lunch at Valentino's on West End, and as I entered Paolo saw me and asked, "You want something to eat?". I said, Sure, bring me anything you wish. See that's the key, I went in and knew I'd get a great dish because I know what's authentic.

What I received was a wonderful pasta dish based on a wonderful fresh rigatoni with a mild red sauce that absolutely mimicked my Italian mother in law's. Its freshness was real. Many of you know home made sauce when you taste it. With Valentino's its assured.

I like Valentino's for lunch. Its a wonderful environment for business. Parking is a breeze with valet always available during dining hours. We took our lunch upstairs in the lounge and had a power lunch covering all topics.

Price wise, the cost was no different than Brick Tops and far lower than the Palm. Service was phenomenal and the "experience" was great. I recommend sharing a special request with Chef Paolo. You'll get what you're after and your clients or prospects will be extremely impressed.

Re: “Red Door Saloon

First and foremost the bar at 1010 Forrest is on the East Side, just over a mile from downtown Nashville, so it is pretty confusing as to why The Scene decided to give it a Franklin address. I realize that this will inevitably cause further confusion to Scene readers who read this review after they finally get around to fixing the error, as this introductory sentence will no longer be relevant.
Aaaaaaaanyways, there are multiple Red Door Saloons and no two are exactly alike. While the general theme is essentially the same in that they are thoroughly adorned with skulls and skeletons and take every opportunity possible to remind you that this is an alternative bar (at very least in theme), the two Nashville establishments vary largely in their respective clientele.
If you happen to be of the alternative persuasion you may not be all too fond of rubbing elbows with the largely clean-cut Division Street crowd who regard the setting as a mere theme, similar to a Mexican restaurant, per se, and to whom the bar is nothing more than another watering hole to line up Jager-bombs. (Just my experience)
On the other hand, if you think of yourself as more of the straight edge sort, you will more than likely feel as a "fish out of water" at the very least at the East Side location, which tends to take the alternative theme to almost comical levels. Here, you are likely to witness tatted-up bikers casually intermingling with wispy hipsters over pints and perhaps even the fabled overt cross-dresser, who hasn't mastered the art of applying foundation to mask facial stubble, yet sports a manicure and handbag that would render nearly any other woman green with envy. Thus is the spectacle that is Red Door East, which factors it's ambiance with its own built-in entertainment value along with notoriously stiff drinks as it's own tried and true recipe for developing a dedicated base of clientele that are always coming back for more. At least until they get cut off.
