“Excellent dinner”
Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

We visited the Red Pony with friends on a. Saturday evening and enjoyed a great meal. We started the meal with guacamole and chips that was excellent! One of the best ever!

Our server was very good and described the entrees with such flair! At our table we had entrees - shrimp and grits and the lobster BLT. They were excellent, but I thought the shrimp and grits was radically different than a traditional dish and I probably would not reorder, but the menu is very good. Overall we had a delicious meal and wonderful dinner. This is a great restaurant.

“Great service and food!”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

We went here for a business meeting and tried everything on the menu for appetizers and desserts. Fabulous good and original recipes. Each of us ordered an entree and marveled at one another's food. We had great service and a few of us had special requests that were honored.

“A Delightful Experience”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

I would recommend the Red Pony to anyone in Nashville. The food was melt in your mouth perfection. The atmosphere was amazing. Drinks are fabulous, food is fabulous. The waiter could have been more friendly…but everything else was so good that it didn't matter. We will be going back.

“Great experience!”
Reviewed December 8, 2013 via mobile

We were referred to this restaurant by a friend. It was a cold,rainy, day and not quite suppertime. We were escorted to the bar, in which the bartender was helpful, pleasant, and accommodating. He recommended A great drink, which one does that! We were then escorted to our table, waiters were excellent! Dinner was excellent… The ribeye was the best! Also their "BLT" bacon, lobster, and roasted tomato over homemade pasta is a staple on their menu, in which is truly divine! You won't be disappointed.

“Perfect ambience, attentive service, delectable meal!”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

Everything we had was out of this world. Started with the TN Tapas, the bread assortment & spreads were flavorful, the salad was OK, but the main courses were over the top delicious. We had the Beef Tenderloin and the Shrimp & Grits and practically licked the plates. Creme brûlée for dessert was light and creamy. Wished we lived closer to visit more often!
