my wife and I had an exceptionally good meal accompanied by excellent service. Kudos to Dean, our server. A very nice menu from appetizers to desserts. My wife had the fried green tomatoes and I had the savory strudel (stuffed with spinach and cheese) for appetizers. Both were very well prepared and presented. My wife for her entree ordered the...

We visited Nashville last Saturday for the first time in years. We had our oldest granddaughter with us as well as our youngest son and his new bride. I made reservations at the Germantown Cafe because of the recent reviews and because none of us like waiting. We were hoping for a pleasant atmosphere with enough variety in the menu... More

Went on Saturday mornings. Surprised at how the flavors of the foods worked together. We tried the strada, Benedicts, and omelets. All were exceptional. The potatoes are very crispy and perfect. The grits are rich and delicious. Check out the beimgets.

We visited for dinner on a Sunday night and it was pleasantly busy. This is in a cute little neighborhood a quick cab ride away from downtown. The view of downtown is beautiful and the wait staff is very friendly. The food was absolutely delicious. I had the salmon with coconut curry. It was great. Highly recommend!

While most of Nashville watched for Santa to arrive, we found this great place! Even though we were late for our reservation, we were lucky enough to get seated right away. Nice wine list with reasonable prices. I opted for Pinot Noir which after a quick glance seems to pair well with the menu. Wait staff was attentive but not... More

This is a great restaurant that looks and feels classy without breaking the bank or feeling pretentious. The servings are ample, I had food left over after tackling my stuffing stuffed pork loin with the cranberry gastric. The place looks wonderful, the cocktail selection is great and the view of the Nashville skyline is second to none. The staff is... More

never overcrowded to the point they can't squeeze in 2 more I've always enjoyed steaks Pittsburgh or black and blue. Steaks aren't their speciality I don't feel but they nail it every time. Give a steak a chance at Germantown cafe.

The food was SO good, highly suggest this place! They have valet parking because otherwise there is not many options for parking. However the fresh donut holes were the best and probably made me like this place that much more!

One of my favorite places to eat.....i'm in love with their curry salmon on risotto. SO amazing. Great atmosphere as long as you don't get stuck sitting too close to the table next to you. Great service, great food, you can't go wrong here.

This restaurant was close to our hotel and easy to find. Parking seemed to be iffy, and we lucked out with a spot just across the street. We didn't have to wait to be seated, the staff was great, and the owner stopped by to make sure everything was AOK, which it was. We had never been to Nashville, so... More
