Great place for lunch and only steps from the Renaissance Hotel on Commerce. Service was great, the dining area was comfortable and the food was amazing!

I love Panera and the staff here dealt with the amazing amount of people by being really quick but also really accurate. I will likely come back if given the opportunity to come back to Nashville.

Food was pretty good but the service is dire. One of these places where the staff stand around talking. Unlike the rest of Nashville lacking friendliness. So we won't be back.

Our hotel only offered a full breakfast buffet. We chose to take the shuttle downtown. This location is right by the Ryman so we stopped for coffee & a bagel 3 of our 5 days in town. The service is good & you know you are going to get fresh hot food.

Been to Panera in at least 9 different states and better than 20 restaurants, and they all are great. Atmospheres may vary and menu choices may vary but you can count on quality of product not varying, and this location was no exception. Food was excellent; staff was friendly; store was clean and welcoming; another good visit.

Great service here along with consistently fresh, tasty food. I find it very similar to other Panera Bread restaurants. This one has easy walk up service and prompts friendly employees

As frequent visitors to the Rhyman and other venues downtown we often find ourselves downtown needing to get a quick bite before the concert starts. Panera's always has something seasonal and lite to offer, the brownies and cookies, scones and breads notwithstanding. The Commerce street store answers the call.

We went here for lunch break during a convention. The line was short, but moved super slow. I'm not sure what the issue was. I'm glad I knew what I wanted because the cashier didn't seem to know much about what I was ordering. Anyway, it was delicious as most other Paneras!
