    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.

    Salmon was excellent. Server very attentive. Afternoon dining results in intense sunshine that somewhat distracts from city views.

    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.

    The view and the ambiance were great! Simple menu, good food and everything went smoothly. Wasn’t too crowded so we probably could have gotten in without a reservation and we could enjoy the conversation with our friends since it wasn’t super packed. 👍🏼

    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.

    Food was great as usual but noise level so high we can’t hear each other talk. I think we were too near a loud crowd and too many bridal parties on our floor. Put them all together and send us to a quiet floor! 😀 Regardless, our favorite restaurant in Nashville so we will go back!

    Some of the food was great - grits and shrimp, waffle and chicken - 2 in our party had the southern salad- the chicken was dry and lacked taste. Overall very mediocre salad so hit and miss. Our server was very attentive and friendly.

    We didn't get the server we requested, and the one we did get was just OK. She kind of had an attitude when I asked for more cream for my coffee. I suppose she could have been having a rough day, but still, it lessened our experience.

    Friendly staff and fun atmosphere. I ordered chicken and waffles and my husband ordered the mahi-mahi dish. I was a bit disappointed with my dish because the chicken strips were a bit dry. My husband’s dish had great flavors and was cooked well. Average entrée were about mid $20s.

    This place came highly recommended, but after having breakfast here I'm not sure why. The servers, food runners, and bussers all looked very unhappy. I asked for no cheese on one of the dishes but was told the kitchen wouldn't do it as they do not accommodate. Food was okay. Just an overall underwhelming experience.
