unique place

Very different food options and really nice setting. Love the drink menu and location. Only fault is the noise- it can get so loud in here if trying to visit or meet for conversation.

Been there half a dozen times and will continue. Superb food and service. We always get the bean soup, but you must share because it's enough by itself for a main course.

The food was fantastic. You are certain to have a wonderful meal here. The concept (a house) was interesting and unique. It gave the place a unique and fun vibe. The service was prompt and professional. The biggest reason I wasn't a big fan of the menu was that it is very 'foodie'. Everything is very small portioned and weird... More

The trendy part is the deafening noise in the restaurant and the list of ingredients that comprises the menu, requiring waitstaff translation. The food is worth the noise and bother; fresh, interesting and usually well-seasoned. The pizzas are standouts - my chard and mayonnaise one (sounds weird, tastes divine) was exceptional.

We live about 45 minutes outside of Nashville and travel there about twice a month. Every trip is planned around having dinner at City House, this is how much we enjoy it. The food is ever changing, we are typically there on Sundays when they do their alternate menu for the week. It is always fresh, tasty and interesting, but... More

We stumbled upon City House one night for a last minute dinner. The menu was very eccentric, delicious items though! Only wine options, not an open bar menu. If you're looking for a fancy, spendy dining experience this is for you! The staff was super great and friendly!!

A very unique menu highlighted what was fresh in the City that day. Unique cocktails and food. Pizza was not your average offering. Wonderful wait staff with incredible knowledge of the food offered and its preparation.

Had an early reservation due to a concert start time of 7:30. Quiet but warm and friendly. Food was fabulous. Wished we had eaten outside on their porch. Cocktails were delish as was dessert.

In our 2 visits to City House we found the food, service and environment all very good. The Lettuces salad has a very tasty dressing. The Octopus app is good. The pizzas are special with nice thin, crispy crusts. White bean soup was yummy. The trout is exceptional, the mushroom pasta tasty but a bit rich. We enjoyed it all.
