Experience was awesome minus the hostesses that seated us at a table with obstructed view for the stage. Resturant was almost empty but she says those tables are held for reservations, I also had a reservation!! She was reluctant but moved me 1 table over. I think guest should always be treated like you WANT their business

Great food with live music in the dining room, which was wonderful. A throwback to the past dinner clubs modernized. Service was fast. Much too fast. My recommendation is for our server to slow down. He rushed us through a fine dining meal, and we really had little time to enjoy a birthday dinner celebration. As soon as we took a sip of our first drinks, he came back asking for our order. We said we were not ready, and he came back quickly pretty much forcing us to order whether we wanted to or not. If they need to turn tables more quickly, I understand, just wish I had known in advance. The food and music are worth going back for, but I might sit at the bar to not be as rushed.

First time having brunch here and it was really good! Our server was super sweet and helpful! The music is always fantastic too. Only complaint I really have is it is a very meat heavy menu. It would be great to see some more vegetarian options!

As usual, extraordinarily great food and Grant Garland added terrific live music. We went with first-time visitors to Nashville (from Oregon) who were duly impressed with the ambiance, cuisine, and music of Sambuca. And, THANK YOU for having Trapiche Broquel Malbec on the wine list! This shows you know your wine. It was terrific!

The food and service were great, and really enjoyed the blues band. I was afraid the band would be too loud for a group dinner, but the sound level was perfect.

First off we had a great table near the entertainment but we were disappointed with the band. Specifically went for Stacy Mitchard. Rockabilly wasn’t expected and all their songs sounded the same. Poor substitute for Stacy Mitchard. Food was ok but nothing spectacular and a bit overpriced which would have been ok if entertainment was better. The cocktails and our server were fantastic. The complimentary cream brûlée was appreciated for our birthday celebration. I’m a local and probably won’t come back. Lots better foodie venues nearby and lower cost.

We were in Nashville for the weekend to celebrate our 50th birthdays and went to Sambuca Saturday night for dinner. What a treat-so fun. Not only were the food and service top-notch, the live music (a four-piece band who played classics from Stevie Wonder, Roy Orbison, etc.) was outstanding-they interacted with diners, but not in an obtrusive way, and a few couples created a dance floor. We thoroughly enjoyed our appetizer, meal, and dessert(s). We're thinking of making a Nashville weekend an annual event, and Sambuca will definitely be on our itinerary. Highly recommend as a place to celebrate a special occasion or for a fun night out.

The jazz by Erik and his band was awesome and stayed quiet enough for everyone to be able to converse at the table. Also mentioned my gfs birthday in the reservation and the servers/hostesses said happy bday, the band sang her happy birthday, and gave us a free dessert! Amazing experience.

We were sat in the upstairs covered deck vs. in the restaurant where we could enjoy the live music and ambiance of the restaurant. The seating location was very disappointing. The food was ok, but not great, and given the ambiance and food both being at or below average I don't think I'll be returning anytime soon. Disappointing experience.

We were nicely accommodated by changing our guest list to 3 after my best friend surprised me for my birthday! Thank you. But once we arrived, we were sat in a booth where the volume on the speaker above our heads was EXTREMELY loud..we asked for it to be turned down and it was but not enough to hear our conversation very well. Then, the ban cancelled and replacements had to arrive. I was disappointed. Food was tasty and the service and wine were great.

Mia, our server, was fantastic! Our water glasses never reached more than half empty. We ordered the ribeye and lobster tail which were both amazingly delicious. A perfect place to dine our last night in Nashville!
