“Excellent Service and Food...Who could ask for anything more!!”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

My client suggested this place for dinner after our work meeting. Much to our surprise Red Bow records was having a party with live music being performed by Rachel Farley. Not only was the live music great the dinner was excellent. For appetizers we had the Goat Cheese
Stuffed Artichokes and the Shrimp & Crab Dip both are definite must haves. Then for entrees we had the Hickory-Smoked Prime Pork Chop, Filet, Miso Sea Bass, Crab-Stuffed Salmon and the Chicken Parmigiana. All of our entrees were superb! I would recommend this place to anyone for a romantic dinner (the ambiance was great), client meeting or just to have a drink at the bar. With excellent service and food, who could ask for anything more? I will absolutely go back next time I am in Nashville.

“Hip Restaurant”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

This is a bar where you go to see and be seen. The drinks are creative but expensive and the appetizers are tasty. Good place to have drinks on your way to dinner.

“The Gulch Keeps On Giving Good Times”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

A great new spot that combines live music and good food. Our cocktails and appetizers were amazing (try the pineapple-cucumber crush or mojitos, artichokes and crab dip) and dinner was quite good, although my scallops and risotto were lukewarm. Our waiter was very opinionated, but his selections were spot on and he was attentive without hovering. We were seated close to the band, which made conversations across the table difficult. Definitely a hopping place with lots of special events going on. Love the Gulch and Sambucca!

“First time in Nashville”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Sambuca, located in "The Gulch" in Nashville, is one of a small chain of restaurants located in a few major cities. The live music, food and service are all excellent. The servers are extremely attentive and helpful. If you want to experience Nashville's music scene with a touch of class and some really good food, give it a try.
