Re: “Manny's House of Pizza

As a native New Yorker, one of the hardest things for me was not having real pizza, the good stuff. A few months ago, I had a friend visiting who took a condo midtown, one rainy afternoon, we wanted to have something delivered for lunch, and we descided on pizza. Neither one of us are big fans of "chains" and and descided to try Manny's. Delivery was on point and much to our delight the pizza was a little slice of NY. From the sauce to the crust, the perfectly seasond sauce, special cheese, it was perfect. I will never complain that I am missing pizza again, thank you!

Re: “Pie in the Sky [Closed]

Very confused by the other review here. Why did they give a 5 star review if they were so dissatisfied. Not sure how a pizza can be overcooked and chewy.

In either case I love this place. Never had a bad time of a bad pizza. Make sure you try this place out for yourself.

Re: “Firefly Grille

When you read that the decor is funky, believe it. Be prepared. It looks like someone went into the attic and just stapled what they found to the walls. It is a bit of a shocker at first but as the night goes on, it creats really good conversation topics.
Once you have gotten over the tacky decorations, order all three courses. The food is amazing and you shouldn't miss out on any of it! Don't waste your meal on the hamburger, get adventurous and order one of the amazing creations from the chef.
The waiters seem a little funny in the head, but they are very well informed about the menu. They can help you with everything down to the wine selection. I was impressed when the waiter didn't suggest the most expensive item on the list. He really tried to find something that would meet what we wanted.
Though the food is amazing, the price is high. Be prepared to spend when you come. Believe me when I say it is completely worth it!

Re: “Back To Cuba Cafe

This hole-in-the-wall place is AMAZING! Always packed with people, and always clean. Bring your own beer or wine. The food is reasonably priced and the plantains are cooked to perfection. Tastes like REAL Cuban food, i highly recommend this place.

Re: “Watermark

If you have a bit of extra cash on you and expect to eat higher on the hog, this is the restaurant for you. Expect to be treated as a valued member of society in this establishment as they have car valets, segmented dining rooms and plenty of diners who prefer to move in the upper eschelons.

Dinner proves to be good and the wine selection is fair. Its exactly what you would expect from a fine dining experience.

Re: “Cantina Laredo

When your boss asks to go here for his birthday, know that you are going to get some pretty nice food, presented fairly and that it will taste good. Ask for a water with lime and the taste of the tortilla chips comes alive. This place's claim to fame is that they make the guac fresh at your table and they prepare it with fresh ingredients to make your tastebuds grateful and wish for an encore.

The rest of the fare does not disappoint and depending upon what you get, its pretty good. So, gather a small crowd and go, because while its not cheap, its also not so expensive that you wouldn't take your whole family for a treat. The service staff are very good at refilling your drink and asking if you can hold any more in your gullet.

Enjoy!

Re: “P.S. Noodle Pot

This place has the best fresh spring roll in Nashville. All of the vegetables and food is fresh and the food is made with quality and craftsmanship in an open atmosphere (you can see them cook your food). This is one of those out-of-the way places that will surprise you. It's quite a small place, but that is part of the charm.

Re: “Germantown CafĂ© East [Closed]

The green plate is a must, even for non-vegetarians. It's hearty and full of flavor as well as a real meal; not just a plate of side items.

And the side patio is a wonderful spot with a great view of downtown.

Re: “Chinatown Restaurant

Best Chinese Food in Nashville. I live in East Nashville, but every time when I crave for Chinese Food, I drove all the way to Chinatown in Green Hills to satisfy my craving. Food quality is consistent every time, service is NO.1, price is very reasonable for upscale Green Hills. I know many of my friends who live in East Nashville eat at Chinatown at a regular basis. There is just no other good Chinese restaurant in East Nashville

Re: “J. Alexander's

This restaurant is great. This is a top recommendation when we have guests in town. I have been here for lunch and dinner and my meal/service has always been exceptional! The atmosphere is very upbeat and entertaining with all the creative food presentations, like the tower of onion rings or the chocolate pyramid dessert, that are paraded by your table. Highly recommended for a great meal and the best shoe string style fries in Nashville.

Re: “Elliston Place Soda Shop

Re: “Joe's Crab Shack

My first experience at Joes' was at Nashville. Excellent staff and service. The menu is full of the best seafood. There is other choices, but if you love seafood, you will love Joes'. They have a huge selection of the best crabs available anywhere. Every size appetite is offered a big selection. From a bucket of shrimp to my favorite the one and only "Bean Town Bake" Which includes not one but two whole lobsters throw in some clams, shrimp, corn on the cob, sausage, onion all served in a big roasting pan. Everything was cooked to perfection! I can sum up my experience at Joe's Crab Shack in three words. "I LOVE IT" When I returned home I immediately went to their website and found another location closer to me. I have been there about 6 times or I should say I drove there just to eat at Joes' 5 times and once I was in near there. It is about an hour and 45 min drive. Easy 7 out of 5 stars!

Re: “Past Perfect [Closed]

Our favorite restaurant during our Nashville vacation. The food was excellent - from sandwiches to spaghetti. Wonderful bread. Atmosphere was very welcoming and we enjoyed chatting with the owner. Will definitely recommend to all our friends visiting the Nashville area.
