Came for dinner for my husbands birthday. No fluff, just really good food. A casual but comfy atmosphere. We had the watermelon salad, wild iris salad, salmon and beef tenderloin. All were fresh, just really fantastic. Wines were reasonably priced, you can get a nice Malbec for around $32 a bottle which isn't bad at all. I would come here... More

Arrived just a few minutes after they opened at 5pm on Saturday. First ones to arrive. Service was great. We shared the mussels as an appetizer. Hubby had beef, I had seared amberjack with roasted cauliflower puree, broccolini and chow chow with a baby arugula salad. Excellent meal. We've been meaning to come here for years. Glad we finally made... More

We've been on the road for over 2500 miles and nearly 2 weeks, from Santa Barbara, CA, headed to the East Coast, and this is the best dining experience we've had. From cocktails to dessert, everything was creative and wonderful. The dipping oil for bread, the salad (which they split for us without asking because the waitress knew we were... More

This restaurant is hit or miss...Dined here several times for lunch and dinner. Has been good only twice. The service is mediocre...as is the food most of the time. Have had the shrimp, the salad, the fish and the steak. I won't dine here again and I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Location can be a bit difficult to find, tucked into the end of a shopping center strip across the parking lot from the Enterprise Rent-A-Car location, but just off of Franklin Road and Old Hickory Blvd. Cozy, not a large format restaurant, so don't be surprised if you are seated next to other diners at nearby tables. Had the green... More

We were staying nearby and found Wild Iris through Trip Advisor. After a full day of driving through rain from Ohio this was a nice end to the day. We weren't up for full entrees but we made a good meal from their appetizers. The mussels we had were delicious and a VERY generous portion for an appetizer. Add a... More

Small local restaurant with great service, inventive menu, where we had a delicious meal. Brined pork chop and shrimp and grits to blow you sox off. Highly recommend!

Every item is prepared to perfection. Wild Iris is a very cozy spot with a local neighborhood look and feel.
