Today my wife and I stopped by the Germantown Café looking for some good German food. To our surprise that was not the case. For GTown Café serves lunch and dinner. We were there for lunch and found the service to be excellent, the food very favorable and the atmosphere perfect for a couple or a group. I ordered the... More

Love, love, love!! I've never had a bad experience here and the view of the skyline is beautiful! I crave the coconut curry salmon they have on the dinner menu. Im not really a coconut fan but I absolutely love this! Prices are good if you are looking for a nice night out.

A friend and I met for a brunch today and ended up at Germantown Cafe. While the food wasn't good, I was thankful for the good service. My friend ordered a french toast with some tea. I was hoping they would have some bakery items like a muffin that I could order, but there wasn't one on the menu, so... More

Visited here for brunch with friends and 2 small children. I have a gluten allergy and the waitress was very knowledgeable about allergens on the menu. Menu easily labeled with GF choices. I had the shrimp and grits which was excellent. My husband had the French toast which he loved. Clean plates all around. Would definitely recommend and come back... More

This is a good place to have American "stylized" food. We have always been happy here, and returned often. It has been my wife and I, and also a large group once. One of the things that keep it from receiving 5 stars from me, is the service. Just adequate. Its not bad, just not top notch like some other... More

My wife and I went to Germantown Cafe recently for dinner. The restaurant is located in Germantown section of Nashville not far from downtown. It was restaurant week so it was busy. Server was newer - she mentioned that she has not opened many bottles of wine. We ordered quinoa cakes appetizer and they were very good. They forgot to... More

The food is good and the portions are adequate, but the menu is pricey. I understand that is the nature of that area, but still a little to many $ for the bang you get.

Always have had excellent meals here. I have tried to branch out but plum pork medallions on dinner menu (I always ask for fries and asparagus instead of sides they pair with and feel confident it is superior) have always been what I wished I had ordered whenever I've strayed. I think escargot is best appetizer I've tried (though don't... More
