The culinary team, led by Executive Chef Shelby Briggs, looks to take familiar dishes and make you fall in love with them all over again through his innovative and inspired approach to cooking. Chef Shelby's team takes a fresh look at what classic Americana should be, and the result is a diverse and timeless menu.

Sinema's cocktail program celebrates over 150 years of craft libations and includes a rare whiskey program with over 200 selections, thoughtfully selected wines and craft beers.

Our space features two levels of dining space, including a bar and private dining areas. The grand lobby, including the curved staircase, have been restored and complemented by exposed brick walls, cozy velvet tufted booths, and legendary music photography by Robert Knight and Mary Ann Bilham.

    What happened!? The brunch price went up which is understandable but not when the food quality then goes down! Food was lightly below average and the service was terrible. Dirty plates stacked ups it’s no one willing to take them and many orders forgotten and had to ask for twice! This just doesn’t match the price point at all. Never returning to Sinema again as you get higher quality food for the same if not less in Nashville for brunch.

    Extremely over priced for the quality and taste. We sat at our table for an hour before our entrees even got to us, & there were only maybe 5 tables occupied. We’d have been better off going to Hampton Social.

    I had a good experience at Sinema. I was there with 5 of my friends for brunch. I am so glad that catfish was added to the menu, but at the same time, I was disappointed that the Cinnamon pancakes were gone. The rest of the items were good

    We had another amazing date night at Sinema last evening. Everything from the atmosphere, food and service was five star! This has quickly become one of our favorite restaurants for date night. Thank you all for such a wonderful experience!
