I heard it is good so I decided to try it. There is wine and cocktails were really good. Their special spicy corn chowder was awsome so their tuna starter. My Scallops with grits was ok and the other place we ordered short rib was somewhat better. The place was kind of empty on thursday night. Not sure if they... More

There are SO many places to eat and drink in Nashville that are much better than this establishment. The entree's were small and expensive. The risotto was bland and needed salt and pepper to eat. My husband had the "hot chicken" which he said was good but the portion looked like an appetizer (see picture). We ordered potato wedges to... More

Loved this dramatic and romantic space at 1808 Grille, with all the wood touches. 1808's menu was a carefully curated, eclectic New American mix of small and large plates and salads, mostly using locally sourced produce and discreetly marked (GF) Gluten Free or (V)egetarian, where applicable. My husband and I love sharing small plates. The flash-fired Brussels sprouts with pork... More

I live in Nashville, so it's the highest compliment to say 1808 is my top spot for delicious, fresh & creative foods, exceptional wine pairing from their 5* wine list: and the service never disappoints.

The bar is great during the late evening for small plates and drinks. The Grille itself is excellent for brunch as well as dinner.

The salmon was good. No filet- just NY strip. Good wine selection. Best part of the restaurant was the service.

The restaurant is beautiful, but the service was average and the menu was not very exciting. The best part of the dinner were the olives served to the table before the meals arrived.

The food at this restaurant was very good tasting, but the entree sizes were remarkably small: three scallops on a sauce for $30. This is especially odd since the restaurant does order a "small plates" selection of food. My family has eaten at great restaurants around the country, and this restaurant was most memorable for the poor value.

We had a very bad experience at the restaurant with a waiter that was rude. It ruined the entire experience.

The hostess wasn't very nice when we arrived, was like she was doing us a favor to seat us in an empty restaurant Then the server comes and he wasn't the sharpest tool in the tool box. No unselling and very little attention given in general. Spent several hundred dollars on dinner and will never go back. Food and service... More
