Unique Menu!

Visiting Nashville and was taken here by a local. The menu is a bit intimidating if you are not an adventurous eater and I will admit to googling at least three items off the menu's ingredients list. However, all four of us were very pleased with the dishes we ordered as well as the desserts. Some... read more

We were looking for a eclectic restaurant to eat near our rental condo in Nashville when we came upon City House. It was a little hard to find due to sign restrictions but we were glad we did. Very nice server was very informative and helpful. We had a relaxing evening with fresh butchered lamb that was prepared to perfection.... More

Visited early in the evening. Informative wait staff and great wine suggestions; very tasty lamb dish; excellent chicken with cardamom and other interesting spices; ended with the to die for Panna Cotta. It was very noisy by 7 pm so we were glad we went early.

A friend recommended this place and raved about it. She said it was her favorite and the chef had been nominated for a James Beard award so I was expecting a top notch experience. Love the decor. Modern southern is what I would call it. Eat upstairs, downstairs feels like a cafeteria. Waitress and service was great. Food....meh. We had... More

Lovely location, excellent building, super menu. everything we had was delicious from apps to dessert. the beer and wine list was excellent. i would love to go back. my only "complaint" was that the waiter was just too hipster for our meal and had to explain where and how each molecule of the food was grown. really too hip for...

We loved the unique atmosphere and menu. Our server was very kind and recommended we both order salads since we were going to share the belly ham pizza. We ordered one corn salad and one squash salad and they were both so crisp and refreshing. He also recommended an egg on top of our pizza and a beer to go... More

We were in Nashville for the weekend--without too much local information. Luckily, my cousin lives in town so we were able to get some suggestions from her. City House was by far her strongest recommendation for dinner. In her words, 'most consistent.' I am SO glad we took her recommendation. We were able to get same-day reservations, but had to...

I came here with my family having seen a piece on FoodNetwork that raved about the pork bellies and the pizza. It seemed like a good choice - but when we got there, the "famous" pork belly only came on 1 item, a pizza. So we decided to split it - but the piece were SO small - less than... More
