    2nd time eating here, invited friends-they enjoyed & said they would tell their friends & family. I love the smaller portions. All items cooked perfectly and tasted fantastic-mushroom ravioli, pork tenderloin, crab cakes, mahi mahi, bananas foster, yum!

    This was our first visit but not our last. The staff were great and explained the menu offerings along wine pairings. The owner/chef came out to visit and advised to follow on Facebook for special events. This is a great little hidden treasure that we enjoyed.

    We enjoyed a New Year’s Eve dinner at The Tasting Room. The tasting concept had a higher-end tapas vibe. It was recommended to get 3-4 tasting servings to equate a full meal. This allowed us to try several of the main dishes and sides. The prices were very reasonable for the amount we were served. This was our first visit and we are looking forward to coming back after the scheduled renovations.

    I really, really enjoy this restaurant … well, the concept, anyhow. The food is delicious and the menu is interesting, with some less common protein options. They have an extensive wine list, and nice cocktails to pair with different tastings. The dining room itself is… hmm… unattractive, bordering on downright ugly. I would love to get my hands on this place and help the space reflect the quality of the food. But, in the end it’s the food and dining concept that will win you over. The food never seems to be hot enough … warmer than room temp but not a hot as it should be for serving. That’s my only complaint about the food. I love trying new things and I’m horribly indecisive so being able to order multiple entrées is right up my alley! I usually order a tasting of an app, a salad, two entrées and share a dessert. Keep in mind that the tastings are roughly 2 Oz of meat with a very small veggie side. If you have a bigger appetite you can order a full size entree or a full selection of tastings. If the food was hotter it would be perfect… it’s truly upscale dining. This place has potential to be out of this world.. with an interior designer and marketing work, the tasting room will be THE best restaurant in Rutherford County!

    GO! A completely hidden gem tucked away in the middle of Smyrna! Cheyenne and Robert made this discovery an even brighter experience! Their presentation of the food and wine pairings made it really fun for us! There wasn’t a bad course all night and we ordered a broad range on the tasting menu, (food and wine) meaning we experienced way more flavors! We’ll be making this a once a month treat for sure!

    We happened upon the Tasting Room in a spur of the moment decision, and we are glad that we did. The small portion tasting concept was well executed, unique and lots of fun. There is clearly a lot of talent in the kitchen. Wayne, our server, was very experienced, and his service complemented the excellent cuisine. As you might expect from a restaurant with a wine focus, the wine selection was very good. Notable dishes included the lamb (we wish we had ordered a full size of that one), the grilled quail appetizer and mahi mahi. The side dishes, particularly, the cabbage were well executed and fresh. We will definitely be back when we are in the area.

    Excellent food! Wait staff was attentive and recommendations were on point. The ambiance/decor is lacking but If given the choice between ambiance and wonderful food, the food will win every time. Best lamb chops I’ve ever eaten and the Bananas Foster was amazing.

    Going on a weekday, we avoided any crowds but was a bit surprised there was nobody there. Another 2-person party did come in, but we basically had the place to ourselves. We got seated right away and our server Cheyanne was attentive and knowledgeable. We got a shareable appetizer, different salads, entrees, and desserts. Everything tasted good and came out appropriately and wasn’t rushed. The food was great! Best food in Smyrna! The service was fantastic! The building is, for a lack of a better way to say it, used. The location is the old Omni Hut- the Polynesian landmark built back in the 60’s. The new owners have removed much of the old Tiki-hut decor, but feels a little like lipstick on a pig. The ambience does not match the food. With a little more work, it can work itself out though. It’s a pretty useable place with options for seating and entertaining larger events- which we were informed about. The need to get the old Omni Hut sign down and make a few interior changes. It’s pretty sterile and lacks character. It has so much possibility.

    We were really excited to go to the tasting room for our first anniversary. For the price, the tasting portion were tiny. Kind of like a restaurant that’s just trying to be fancy but not providing a great value to their customers. Clearly some of the decorations are left over from Omni Hut. The hostess was on her phone when we came in. Bad look for a restaurant with that kind of pricing. 10 out of 10 will not be back. I’d rather go spend more at a restaurant like etc. in green hills.

    This is not my first time to eat here and it definitely won’t be my last. The restaurant feels like a welcoming dining room in Amalfi with the amazing wine list to match. The other side of the restaurant you can sit in comfy chairs while trying craft cocktails and playing chess or other games. The ambiance is unmatched. The staff is generous, attentive, kind, and had a good pace. The food is exquisite. I personally recommend trying a tasting of every single thing on the menu. It is well worth it. The Chef’s special is always a fun surprise from elk to kangaroo, and it is absolutely delicious. This is the gem of Smyrna. There is no place like it in the general surrounding areas. It is a definite favorite and I am looking forward to the next time I enjoy time there!

    Service and Food are excellent! This is our favorite restaurant. We love to take our out of town guests. My niece said she and her boyfriend can't wait to come back and go again. It is the best restaurant they have ever been to. Wayne is the perfect server, if he suggests something try it, you will never be disappointed.
