Good was great. We had pork belly appetizer. I had the ground steak burger, which was very savory. The lima bean hummus was fantastic. Atmosphere charming, kitchen visible, good drink menu. This was our first visit, but we will be back!

“Grea menu and a neat atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014

We had a business dinner here, and sat in the open area out back. The vibe was very neat. The service was amazing, as was the food.

Decided to go to Red Pony on a whim without investigating reviews. Wow, what a surprise, Great food, Fabulous wine, Scotch, and Burbon list, and great service staff. First, the food, tried the calamari which was not like any I've ever tasted before, so be prepared, more like a swordfish in texture and style -- very good. The Kale salad also is a winner. Our entrees were also great as we both had fish which was cooked correctly and not overly seasoned. Next the alcohol, one of the best selections of Scotch and Burbons seen anywhere and well priced. Lastly, ate upstairs in the bar area with Ariel and Roland providing service, both were friendly, helpful, and fun. Interesting interior design in this area as friend is into ancestoral, spiritual alters which design is patterned after.

“Very Chic!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014 via mobile

We had a date night in Franklin and decided on this place for dinner. We were not disappointed. You must get the fried brussel sprouts for a side and not a side. They were fantastic! We will be back again! It is definitely a place for a date night treat and not an every weekend dinner.

“Expensive and not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

I may have ordered the wrong thing but the waitress suggested buffalo ribeye. It was very chewy and hard to chew w stringy texture. You also sit within 3 feet of others which is of. My wife and I and ticket was over $100 no alcohol or dessert. Won't be back.
