Excellent hotel within walking distance of downtown. Had an early reservation given 7 PM concert start. Split appetizers with friends (Tatchos were especially good). Excellent cheeseburger. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Would have given 5 stars except the beer list was pretty limited and a disappointment...More

We discovered halfway through our meal this restaurant opened 9 months ago, which explained a lot of the mishaps that occurred through the dinner. Apparently they were very understaffed due to their first memorial day weekend and not realizing how busy it would be. We...More

The food options are very interesting with combinations that aren’t seen often. Their pastries are very good but the portions are too large for just one person. The restaurant has a charming atmosphere and was a great place to eat brunch. Would definitely recommend trying...More

For me, The Mockingbird is a little too New Nashville - where decor and design matters above all else. The restaurant is definitely a bit over-designed for me - wild ceiling tiles, several types of wallpaper, sculptures on the wall, painted ceramic toilets in the...More

We stopped by for a quick meal before a concert. Valet parking was nice. Everything we ordered was very flavorful, and the waitstaff was extremely attentive. It was a great experience. Will definitely keep this in the rotation.
