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.

So. Much. Hype. It wasn't terrible, but I wasn't blown away either. The ambiance is good, the style is cool, but the service was, to be generous, average. I came in with high expectations, and left disappointed. The food was about as average as the service.

So loud servers have to literally scream as do the patrons at their table. I've no words for over priced food placed in what's suppose to be chic industrial environments that are subway train loud...but it's a real theme across Nashville. Read so many good reviews about City House, however, if your not 20 something, can hold a conversation without... More

The atmosphere was fantastic...lively and energetic but not so loud that we couldn't hear each other. We went for the Sunday Supper which was really fun and amazing food. Shared an appetizer, pizza and dessert. Great bottle of wine. Our server gave us great tips. Loved the place and will certainly go back the next time we visit Nashville. Thanks... More

Great atmosphere - open kitchen with a lot of energy. It's the more fun to order several different plates and share with the table. Don't miss the pizza for a nice shared appetizer. Chef is always inventive with fresh local ingredients.

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
