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.

    Thoroughly enjoyed my dining experience. Our waitress was phenomenal. Very attentive without being over bearing. Great food, loved the freshness. Upon leaving we stopped by the ladies room and it was probably one of the cleanest ladies room I’ve entered.

    Loved the experience. Service was excellent. My fiancé and I did the five course tasting menu. Amazing scallops and pasta! The weakest dish was the dessert. Just not super flavorful — felt more like ice than strawberry sorbet. Also, the booths need new upholstery. The fabric on my seat was tearing and looked sad.

    The vibes at Sinema are amazing!!! For $190 brunch for two people with bottomless I would honestly expect better though. The food wasn’t overly exciting and the drink quality for the premium beverages was incredibly mid.

    We had a great brunch after going out all night! Everything we ate was amazing. I think it was well worth the price for the bottomless brunch. They gave me a whole bottle for the bottomless mimosas which I also thought was worth it! 10/10 would go back here again when in Nashville.

    I moved to Nashville 2 years ago and this was the first Brunch spot my fiancée and I tried. It had been our favorite ever since, but this weekend was disappointing. The menu has changed recently and the selection is no comparison to the previous menu. Unfortunately, we won’t be returning.

    My wife and I celebrated our anniversary last night. Everything from the decor, ambiance, food and service were amazing. I would recommend this restaurant for anyone looking to have a great meal in a cool environment. We look forward to going back there soon.
