I had The Bird sandwich, which is grilled chicken with goat cheese and sun-dried tomatoes on whole grain bread, it's a hot sandwich. All sandwiches come with herbed couscous and spring greens. I also had the Red Tea with pomegranate and pineapple, it was divine served over ice.

This place had fantastic food. I was in Nashville for 4 days staying at the Gaylord Opryland and I ate here twice, once for dinner, once for lunch. Their menu is completely different for lunch than it is for dinner. Both were fantastic with a large variety of options that cater to meat-eaters, vegetarians and fish eaters alike. I recommend...

While visiting in Nashville, went here with a young couple. Not expecting much, we were amazed at the unique dishes and layers of flavor. Very casual atmosphere, we sat at small bar overlooking kitchen. Owner chef was busy but friendly. In a week long trip, this was best restaurant by far. Not fancyi or formal, but excellent food!

We visited on a week night, so it wasn't as busy as it would have been on a weekend; we were seated immediately. Service was excellent, food was beautifully plated and delicious, although the servings were slightly smaller than expected for the cost. Great selection of entrees, beverages, and desserts. (I tried the honey beet ice cream and it was... More

I like trying new food so when I go to a city on vacation i look for good reviewed restaurants. Seen silly goose and thought I would try. Best decision of the day. We had a beet salad and a pink panther sandwich. Great. Best meal in Nashville. Close to nice park on river.

The sandwich listing on the menu was very unique. It was difficult to choose as they all sounded delicious. I had the Bird which was mainly chicken and avocado with a cheese spread. Yummy! The restaurant was small and it was noisy but the food was so good, it was worth it. We ate lunch there and did not have... More
