We knew about the museum c hotel and were excited for the restaurant! The waiter didn’t seem to know anything about their hotel and restaurant art of the wine menu which was unfortunate.

We had such a great time here, our server was wonderful and attentive, the food was excellent and prices were fair. We could take our drinks and walk through the art exhibit which was amazing. Overall this was one of our favorite parts of the weekend we spent in Nashville and next time we want to stay in the hotel above the restaurant.

Honestly some of the worst service I have had for brunch in Nashville... and we were almost the only people in the restaurant, so it wasn't because they were busy. The food was ok, but nothing to write home about. The drinks were enjoyable, when we finally received them. The manager had to step in to make the drinks eventually. I would not recommend, especially since there are so many amazing brunch spots in Nashville. Maybe their dinner service is better? I will say, the hotel was gorgeous and I loved the art!

This is basically the restaurant for the Museum Hotel - which is fun and interesting. The menu isn’t extensive but there were several fine options. Service was super. We started out with a grilled & chilled carrot salad and also a hummus plate. These were presented nicely with several types of pita and bread for the dip. Hummus was really good. For the main dish we went for catfish and a chicken dish. Both were fine but we both enjoyed the setup of the dish more than the way the actual protein was prepared. The chicken was on a wonderful green chutney rice & the catfish was presented with a fine eggplant blend on crepe. Nice dinner in a great setting.

The restaurant is in an Art Museum hotel. Really interesting to walk past the art pieces on the way to the restaurant (and in the restrooms also). Menu had a good number of interesting dishes. We ordered 6 starters and salads. They were all very good. The main entree of cat fish was actually the least impressive dish.

An oasis of relative quiet and taste in an obnoxious and grotesque sea of madness that has become downtown Nashville with the advent of unchecked pedi-taverns and bachelorette parties. The wine list is excellent, the cocktails are top-notch, and the food is quite good. A few more main course offerings would be nice, and the three bean salad was the only disappointment for anyone at our table (and that was a party of five). Our server was attentive without being annoying, and the space is clever/ chic without being irritatingly hip.

Food was good. Boudin was a little dry but the spicy sauce balanced the dryness. I had the falafel skillet with was lovely. My friend had the pork belly with creamy rice, delicious. The for a cause cocktail was delicious. Old timey rum drink.

A note about valet parking at the hotel. Self park. No valet to be found for 15 minutes when we were leaving. When enquiring with the hotel staff as to whereabouts of the valet the woman was super rude. Finally got the car and it smelled like cigarette smoke. Guess we know where the valet was.
