    The food and wine were amazing. We sat outside and it was a gorgeous setting. Unfortunately the service did not match the level of the cuisine. It took us 10 minutes to even get noticed for our drink order and our waiter was not overly attentive. After we were done eating we probably sat for 20 minutes before our plates were cleared and airfield was brought. We will be back for a another dinner and hope the service is better.

    First time at Mere Bulls in long time. Went for special occasion. Menu prices and items different at store than on web site. Had mind made up what to order but had to change at last minute. Food portions were small to say the least. I had Cesear salad with Salmon. Nothing special and portions were small. My wife had Filet bowl with potatoes and mushrooms. Portions seemed adequate. Service was good but slow. Next to large noisy group. Not sure if will return anytime soon. BTW - since this was an anniversary celebration, they did provide desert for a dollar. Nice touch.

    I haven’t been to Mere Bulles in years and was very excited to go. It is looking very old and needs some sprucing up. The food was overcooked and mediocre at best….and very expensive for what it was. The one bright spot was our wonderful server! I wish I could remember her name. She was very attentive and friendly! I likely won’t be back though unless they make a major overhaul.

    Mere BullesResponded on September 23, 2022Hi Stephanie! While we're thankful your service was on-point, we obviously failed on the dining front. If you wouldn't mind reaching out to our GM Nolan at (615) 467-1945 with your contact information, as he would like to hear more about your experience. Good news - we are always in the process of maintaining our beautiful manor! We recently updated our lounge, and our currently installing a beautiful new patio, which is going to be stunning when completed. We hope to serve you again soon.

    This was a scheduled lunch with my college roomie and we had to go to a Brentwood staple such as Mere Bulles. Our service was excellent and allowed us to reunite for 2+ hours very patiently!! First time to try the mushroom bruschetta and that’s a new favorite.

    The food was good. I'm glad the omelet stations are still there as well as the carving station and made to order pancakes. I like that the bisque is "on tap" but it seemed spicy which is a first. Compared to brunch of the past, the dessert offerings were an afterthought. At least bring back the little cheese cake servings and a wider array of fresh cookie selections. Everything else was of the standard that I have come to expect for the Merre Bulles brunch.

    Mere BullesResponded on September 20, 2022Hi Jarvis - thank you for your comments. We'll be sure to make sure the Chef receives your suggestion about the cheesecakes and cookies. We hope to see you again soon.

    I enjoyed a business dinner at Mere Bulles - we were lucky enough to get a patio table - the food was outstanding as it always is and the service equally great from Alan. The salmon was cooked and seasoned perfectly; chicken and shrimp and grits all were delicious. My colleagues had never been to the restaurant and thought it was exceptional. In fact they remarked that Mere Bulles is better for both quality of food and service than any of the “it” places in town!

    Mere BullesResponded on September 20, 2022Wow - what a wonderful review! We will make sure Alan knows you mentioned him by name. Thank you so much! We hope to see you and your business colleagues again soon!!

    We met some out of town friends for dinner. We have eaten there before and had a great experience. Friday at 7 was a bit loud. The food was good but expensive. My wife and I shared the 12ounce filet and the cream Brussels sprouts. We also shared an appetizer, calamari and got a bottle of wine for the table. Just our bill was $167 so that seemed high for sharing a meal. We had a bottle of Petit Petit Pinot that could be bought at Sam’s for less than $20 and it was over $50. Good place to enjoy a special occasion but expensive.

    Without a doubt, this is the BEST restaurant in Nashville, Brentwood and Franklin! There were six of us and every single person had a different entree and we ALL said it was the best ever! I had the sundried tomato chicken dish that was fabulous, my husband had shrimp and grits and said it was excellent, others had salmon, pork chop, fish specials. Everyone loved their dish. The service was awesome, the setting delightful and I cannot say enough good things. Well done Mere Bulles!

    Another of many visits to Mere Bulles, an outstanding restaurant located in Brentwood, TN. Good food, especially the Charleston She-Crab Bisque, and pleasant outside dining. The rear dining patio is being remodeled, so our lunch was served on the covered front porch. Weather was beautiful, service was good, although not quite up to what it once was due to staffing issues is my guess (we ran out of beverages more than once, unusual for Mere Bulles). Food is still reliably excellent and our lunch was satisfying and enjoyable.

    Mere BullesResponded on September 4, 2022Hi there! Our apologies about the beverages, and will work on that with our team. But we appreciate the otherwise stellar review! We hope to see you again soon.

    This is brunch only on Sunday. There is no menu available from which to order. The food was not presented in an appetizing way. The omelet maker was very good, and made a great omelet despite the fact that he was out of cheese. I went to another station and brought the cheese to him. I had really expected a really good brunch experience based on other experiences there. If I had known there was no menu available, only a buffet, I would never have stayed. This was not shared until we were already seated and had drinks.
