Recommended by our hotel, this was a busy, pleasant restaurant with a great menu and excellent service - a warm welcome to Nashville. My only observation (not unlike many similar US restaurants) is that the menu is light on fish options.

Food was very good. We had one vegetarian with us who truly enjoyed the “green bowl.” Atmosphere is not very exciting given all the live music options in Nashville. A good meal but no entertainment.

Call for a reservation as they tend to be crowded. One of the few choices in the Donelson Road area.
