I love Nashville and have really enjoyed many of the niche and artisan restaurants I have been to. But for a classic steak and charming atmosphere, this is my new favorite spot. Recommended by a friend, I knew nothing about it beforehand. The exterior is beautiful and I knew right away I would be in for an experience. I liked... More

The building is the epitome of charm. The personal greeting by Billy the maitre 'd was very welcoming. The menu definitely has a streak focus and the rib eye and filet were excellent. The fried green tomatoes and crab bisque were delicious starters. It was not that busy for a Saturday night which concerned us. Service was proficient. I think... More

This is the place to go for an impressive date! Excellent wine choices and gourmet menu. The atmosphere is more formal, old world, high society dining. I could see holding wedding parties here, or any type of gathering where you want only the best and to be treated like royalty. My husband ordered the wagyu steak which is pricey but... More

Went here for a black tie event and my expectations were exceeded. From the food to the new wine room to the upstairs cigar bar, this place was amazing.

If you are looking for an elegant but fun night out, this is your destination. Located in a historic building, the setting is beautiful. The doorman's welcome set the tone which was followed by the maitre d's greeting which made us feel like we were regular celebrity visitors to the Standard receiving "special attention." The wait staff worked as a... More

We found this restaurant on trip advisor and it was within walking distance from our hotel so we decided to give it a try. We were promptly greeting upon our arrival and take to our table which was very nice and cozy. The menu had a good variety and everything we ordered was delicious. Will definitely go back on our...

Very nice. This place primarily focus on steaks and that is their specialty. Go here for their 100 percent authentic Japanese Wagyu steak.

This is an amazing place, the home the restaurant is in now was built I the 1800's we were told, along with a wonderful little history of how it came to be. The inside is charming with a great ambiance. And to say the food was wonderful would be down playing it.. The best meal we had the whole time... More
