I've now been here more than once for both business and personal dinners. Every time, the food is excellent and the service is outstanding! For those that like a bourbon old fashioned...theirs is the best I've ever had.

Great food and service. The wine recommendation was excellent. We had a reservation and had to wait about 10 minutes for table which was a slight annoyance.

I understand that special holidays like Valentine's may not be the most honest assessment of a food establishment, but I'll say this - you should absolutely visit this restaurant. I very rarely give out 5 ratings but this place deserves it. Our 4-course meal was cooked perfectly, the service was attentive yet not overbearing, and the atmosphere was top notch.... More

Checking off from a menu list at our table was a little different. The atmosphere was very low key, music a bit too loud for our taste, the food was ok but nothing to write home about,

Luckily I went here with someone whom I really enjoyed talking to, because our waiter spent the balance of his time talking to the very loud table behind us. Of course, they were buying lots of expensive shots and food. There were times I couldn't hear what my guest was saying because the waiter and the guests were having a... More

Although the food was very good and exceptionally prepared the service was SO lacking that we almost left. They continued to try and "make up" for the poor service throughout the meal but there was already a "bad taste" in my mouth. I would give this restaurant another chance because of the food. The duck was sublime. The fish was... More

We had an excellent dinner with superb service. I ordered the filet which was cooked as I requested. My spouse had the tuna which was spicy the way he likes it. Enjoyed the evening:)

Oh gosh, this restaurant is over the top, in service, food quality, atmosphere and it was just FUN TOO. Yea, it was pricey but it is worth every dime I spent. The menu overs a big variety one can choose from. Red Pony is located in old historic downtown Franklin, Tn. It is unique and it is awesome.

The menu i feel gets stale sometimes and needs to be changed up a little.. the appertizers are always on point and the steaks are great. I beleive they are using McConells farm steaks. I don't want steak when I go here because they also own Cork and Cow.. I try to get something different. Service was on point this... More

Kale can be tasty if you use the curly, fragmented, very green, almost-in-a-ball leaves and add macadamia, mandarins (the oranges, not the bureaucrats) and feta. The duck was well cooked and with excellent accompaniments (the mushrooms and sauce, the mashed potatoes, and so on) but the pieces were some good, some not as good. The carrot cake cheesecake was very... More
