    A fun spot for lunch ….. bar on the 6th floor. Not busy at all. The salad with Nashville HOT chicken … the bomb. A slightly expanded menu would be nice. When I asked, turned out roasted asparagus was available …… great addition to the salad.

    Atmosphere was great. Sat by the railing and enjoyed watching the people come by from the Titans game. Our group had the Hawaiian Punch drink was very good. Definitely recommend. Food we had mahi-mahi, chicken and waffles, pasta dish, and chicken parmigiana. We all loved the food. Will definitely go back next time in town.

    We were 20 minutes early for our reservation, but were seated immediately. Water was on the table quickly. Our waiter was adequate. He seemed too have no emotion whatsoever. He took our orders and did bring the lemon that I requested for my water. And he did check back with us one time to see if we were doing okay and he brought us the check. The mild chicken and waffles heat was warmer than anticipated, but very tasty. The shrimp and grits was delicious as usual. The fourth floor was not busy - 6:00 dinner on a Saturday evening. We like The Diner. Good value and very convenient to the Schermerhorn Symphony Center.

    Set a reservation for 4:00 but that floor did not open until 4:30? Confused on why Open Table and The Diner let me set the reservation. No worries food was good and able to eat on another floor. Menu is the same throughout restaurant anyway.

    Food was mediocre and service was slow and not friendly. Menu has clear “No modifications” warning but a friend was genuinely allergic to avocado and the waiter would not let him order the sandwich without the avocado spread. It was prime time brunch but our floor consistently had open tables but we didn’t see our waiter that often.

    Took my wife here for her birthday. The food was fantastic! She had the Rattlesnake Pasta and absolutely loved it! The service was decent, but it came from other staff than the lady that was our introduced server. Either way, we still had quick and friendly service, and some really good meals.

    My husband loved his meal. My lemon chicken lack flavor. Initially tried to order salmon and was told they were out. Our server checked on us several times, however, we were never asked about drinks other than the initial water that was served. We were in the 4th floor. I believe for casual meal the first floor would have been best. Upper levels are more intimate setting.

    Different menus for different floors. The floors that take reservations have very limited, overpriced menus. The floor to ceiling windows for the entire dining area were open in 80+ degree weather with the sun blasting in your face. Slow service and the food was only okay.

    Absolutely horrible experience. We've dined here previously and had solid experiences. This was by far one of my worst Nashville dining experiences. After we received our fair quality, tourist priced food, we never saw a server. We never got refills. No one came to check on our orders, satisfaction with our meals, nothing. Because we were a table of 9, the gratuity was included. That has never been a concern of mine until now--I understand why this young girl wasn't concerned about the service. Unfortunately, as we left, there wasn't a bartender, manager, or anyone available that wasn't staring at their phones. We will NEVER return and I am mortified this was the experience we gave our son's out of town guests. DO NOT EAT HERE. Subway is a more solid choice than the Diner.

    The restaurant was nice. We were seated on the 5th floor near the kitchen. The food was just ok. I got the chicken & waffle, my fiancé got the pasta. Neither was great, just good. The gumbo was the best thing we ate. The drinks were really good. Our server was polite but seemed to be distracted. I may or may not go back.
