Best in Nashville.

The best restaurant in Nashville. Reservations just be made online and they are hard to get. Watch a your 7 course meal is prepared right in front of you.James Beard nomination.

We snagged a late reservation because of a cancellation. It will be a birthday meal and dining experience I will never forget. from my first contact - personal phone call from Ms. Paige to follow up on needs to Nicolette recommending our wines, the wonderfully professional , knowledgeable and enthusiastic prep chefs to our talented and imaginative Chef Trevor Moran...

This was, hand's down, probably the most enjoyable dining experience I've ever had. I don't want to give away the details because that's part of the fun of the whole experience, but everything about Catbird Seat was excellent. The staff were all inviting, polite, informative, fun, etc. and the food was out of this world. My husband and I opted... More

Most unique dining experience in Nashville! You need to be an adventurous eater to enjoy this restaurant, but if you are, you'll have a great time! Intimate, interactive experience with amazing food! Reservations in advance required! Check out their website for details as it's unlikely you'll be able to get a reservation on short notice.

I dined almost two years ago and I am quite late on this review. The chefs have changed hands since then but the concept is about the same. The dining space is awesome - a U shaped kitchen allows you to watch and talk with the chefs has they create your tasting menu. The food was amazing - small bites,... More

I loved the experience from the moment I was greeted with champagne to every dish that was exquisitely prepared. This is not a typical restaurant. It is a great experience so share it with someone special.

My family went to celebrate my birthday. I had been wanting to go and I flew in from North Carolina to go. I wish I lived closer. This was one of the best food experiences I've had. It's not just food but art. You first come in and meet Paige who is so nice and pleasant, and at Exactly your... More

I took my son and his girlfriend last month for a celebratory dinner. They were extremely gracious and called to tell me I was able to snag a very much wanted last minute reservation. And even more gracious when my plane was delayed and I screwed everything up! The hostess was waiting for me in the lobby with a glass... More

Wow! Everything was great! Quite the experience. Champagne when you walk in the door! Fourteen fabulous courses. Every course was unique and different. Was expensive but well worth it. Very outside the box and fun to watch them prepare each course with such care. Will be back!

We were fortunate to get a reservation at Catbird Seat when we visited Nashville (not an easy feat). Trevor and his team made the experience one we won't easily forget. Dining while watching them cook for us was fascinating. The staff carefully and knowledgeably explained everything the put before us. Definitely not for the adventurous sorts. We're "foodies" and although... More
