Lunch was excellent. The atmosphere is nice, the service was superb and the wine and food were terrific. Very reasonable prices. Parking is a bit tight, but they control it well.

Creative menu, attentive service, one of my favorite go-to restaurants in Nashville. Daily specials based on what's available locally. Good for lunch and dinner. Definitely recommend reservations for dinner, especially on weekends.
