Re: “Sperry's Restaurant

Sperry's, what can I say.
Arrived early for a 5:30 dinner reservation, party of nine.
Seated and served water, wine for the table ordered.
Waiter comes back to the table to advise the grill was not working and they could only offer cold appetizers and prime rib.
Personally I could live with this but the 5:30 reservation should indicate to anyone in the industry that our party includes older patrons. Reservations made a week in advance should be given the common courtesy of a phone call. If you show up to fire the grill at 3PM to clean it and there is a problem, please have the decency to call the customer. It's simple common courtesy.
You'll never get the opportunity to disappoint me again.

Re: “Sperry's Restaurant

We came off the Trace (Natchez Trace) hoping for a yummy birthday dinner. We are returning from wintering in South TX to home in northern Minnesota in Monico RV rig with 26 foot car carrier & fortunately was able to park very near Sperry's. At 7:01 the hostess advised 30 minute to possibly up to 60 minute wait time. We freshened up in the RV, returned to Spery's ar 7:20, advised the hostess we would be in the bar. At 8:24 we left Sperry's bar area still Hungry. There was NO follow up and NO service. The correct rating would be NO star which is not a rating option. Kinda like the missing bubble option on election ballots None of the above. Accuaries aka pollsters: Tea Party, Democrat, Republican or None of the Above--- perhaps None of the Above would be strong contender??

Re: “2 Rivers Grille

Have been going there once a month for 13 years with a dining group that has been going for 20 years. Great food in the class and comfort of a Marriot Hotel. They have many breads,pastries,fresh fruits,blintz's,turkey sausage,yogurt and granola plus all the sides that go with them. A very nice staff that's professional and no parking problems. A recent million dollar renovation makes this a soothing way to start your day. You will leave full and happy.

Re: “Sperry's Restaurant

I grew up in the neighborhood where Sperry's is located and used to go with my parents at least once a week from the time it opened. It was my Father's favorite place. My husband and I have celebrated birthdays, anniversaries there for a lot of years. However when we went there to eat about 6 months ago on a Saturday night it was bedlam in there. We had a reservation but had to sit in the bar. I have read other comments and agree with them regarding the bar flies and their suitors that are obnoxious and loud. I order Prime Rib and my husband ordered a Rib Eye.. Well our meal arrived and my piece of rib eye looked like an end piece that should have never been served. I sent it back and the waiter was most gracious. It came back for a second time and was raw-sent it back again. After my husband had finished eating by third and final piece of prime rib arrived with a fresh , hot baked potato. It was OK but not up to the usual standards of this restaurant. The manager apologized and did not charge us but this would have never happened in days past. And yes- it is on the high end pricewise for what you get.
Service is still excellent but I agree-it is time to lighten the place up inside. The outside has recently been painted and fixed and looks nice. It is very dark inside and would be a great place to meet someone if you wanted to keep it a secret. The competition is stiff now in Nashville so watch out!

Re: “Urban Grub Fish Pit and Southern Cantina

This was a date night that ended in me wishing we would have saved our money. It all started off with a 915 reservation that we arrived for at 9pm. Walked in and waited about 10 minutes before we were even acknowledged as existing. There was a gentleman frustated with his wait time from an 8pm reservation and the hostess showed no empathy whatsoever. A key phrase was "Would you like me to ask people to leave?" Other parties around us were grumbling about the time; they had been waiting about an hour for reservations as well. Ended up waiting about an hour longer. A walk in almost got sat before us, but standing up reminded them we were there. Apparently hosting is hard, as there were 3 people who could not figure their way out of a paper bag. Maybe one of them could have bussed some tables, as there were many other people waiting and empty tables everywhere.

Service
Waitress was nice enough, but unattentive at best. We waited over an hour for food for only 2 people. By this time it is almost 11pm Overpriced and underwhelming is the best way to describe the lamb chops. Server described them as very large and a double portion. Hint-Dont waste your money. I had the carbonara- and it was lukewarm at best. Water glasse and wine glass sat empty- no bother to refill.

Other tables around us were sending food back due to undercooked or purple steaks. Had a chance to chat with them, as they looked just as miserable as we were. Waste of our time and money. Overpriced on basically everything. Horrible environment and the fact that the manager, owner or whomever was allegedly in charge should have been touching every table. Couldn't even be bothered, and we walked out without so much of an ackowledgement from the 2 hostesses.

This place sucks. Bottom line. If I thought I would have been heard, I would say it to the manager as well.

Re: “Sperry's Restaurant

Bar tender horrible. Treats you like crap unless your his friend. Humiliated me in front of customers as he made me give up my seat for his girlfriend and her friends.

Re: “B&C Melrose BBQ

I'm a huge bbq lover and B&C is without a doubt the best in the area. The location makes picking up very fast and easy, it also has a good sized dining area to eat in. The Brisket is out of this world!! Definitely a must try BBQ joint

Re: “Cinco de Mayo

A Bug was in our Margarita Pitcher tonight (02/15/14) at Cinco De Mayo at the 358 White Bridge Road location. I had never eaten here before and my friend from work wanted to go out and suggested that we go here. Mind you this was not her first choice but I wanted to try to check out the NBA All-Star game and figure this would be a good place since she had been here and their other locations before. Never again would I come to a place where there was hair in my food, mediocre service, and bugs in the ice/drinks. I was so shocked, disgusted, and embarrassed. I have never had anything of the sort happen to me ever! Not even at a fast food place! The manager of this establishment thought it was funny and laughed at the situation! I would not recommend this place or any of their other locations to anybody; friend or foe. The manager acted poorly and was very disrespectful about the situation. He did not represent this company in a good light and did not offer an apology.

Re: “Bombay Bistro

I have dined at Indian restaurants in many cities both small and large and never have I been more disappointed that at Bombay Bistro. The food tasted processed, almost like a Whole Foods frozen Indian meal. It was not at all authentic Indian food. You cannot cover bad recipes with spices. I was also alarmed at the rude attitude of the manager/owner. He lurked by the tables all through our dinner. He treated his staff poorly and in plain sight which added to the uncomfortable vibe. So, to wrap up my review, if you like processed Indian food with an uncomfortable vibe in a "strip mall setting...not to mention the dark ambiance in the room which added nothing...than you may or may not like this place but for me, I have found better Indian food at other Nashville restaurants with hospitality to match ! I will not be back to Bombay Bistro. Steer clear.

Re: “Sam's Sushi

After reviewing the first post, I feel torn between a weird urge to take up for this place or to convey complete understanding of the previous reviewer's opinion. Sam's Sushi is the BEST sushi in Nashville. Hands down. No question. Cheap. Delicious. Fresh. GOOOOOOOOD. That said, Sam is, er....well..., Sam is direct. Sometimes, his abrupt communication style is taken too personally. Cultural differences between restaurant owners and the populations they serve may explain why some diners discredit the outstanding food quality Sam delivers. Quantity is a bonus, in my opinion. Food quality is guaranteed... as long as you don't get too sensitive when you dine out. :) Sam once told me that my last name means 'Shame' when translated as his native language. Honestly, I'm glad to know that the best Nashville sushi comes with a side of snarky truth. Laugh it off and enjoy the food. That's the secret to making Sam like you, by the way. As the other rules you should follow? Well, you'll see...... I think it's worth whatever you may experience. Happy dining! - Regina Hodge :)

Re: “Shalimar

its funny when people will spend $80 on a bar tab and complain about good food prices. People who complain about that want cheap food, go to krystals is next door if you prefer. I will say, this restaurants struggled a bit. but Recently, This place has become the best indian restaurant in Nashville. Listen, this place has secrets that only loyal customers figure out. (1) ask for suggestions, though the wait staff except two folks, seem shy, they are your best friends. you just need to ask. (2) the meat is of higher quality- kosher (3) order chicken tikka masala; any ENTREE with the word jelfraze or saag (except the veggie side dishes. only saag paneer I like out of the sides); park in the back; (4) bring your own champagne and youll walk out with a bill that would've otherwise been double what you're paying (5) know youre putting good food in your system,
