No complaints about the meal or service, all in all, very nice. We shared one meal between 2 and each had a glass of wine. The bill was $95.

I do recommend for romantic dinner. You can decide between something more private or even have your meal on the bar, that's was my choice. I really like it. I am sure this is the fine restaurant in the area.

This restaurant was recommended to us and is not the typical place that you find on Broadway as it looks to be a little more high end although the prices weren't out of line. We sat out on the patio area which was very nice...More

So sorry for the delay. Merchants is not known for live music, yet Nashville has plenty of nearby spots. I would suggest Robert's Western World.
