    We enjoyed EVERYTHING! The atmosphere set the tone. The appetizers was DELICIOUS, especially the Beer Bread and the Ravioli. Must try! The entree were good but the appetizers stole the show. Our server was extremely kind and help! The husband was very happy for his birthday. I included the something and it was a very nice touch. Nothing less than satisfied!

    We hadn’t been here since before Covid and was disappointed they have stopped valet parking. We lucked out and found a parking garage nearby. The upstairs bar was closed for a private party which was a bummer. Our food and cocktails were very good as was our server. All in all good night but I think I will go somewhere else as there are so many other great options in Nashville.

    Based on the reviews, we were excited to try Sinema. Unfortunately our experience was lackluster. Our server was extremely slow but pleasant. Over 15 minutes until we were greeted after being seated by the hostess. I think perhaps he was the only server in the upstairs section; so perhaps a staffing situation. Thereafter, the food came relatively quickly...too quickly. It was clear the first course had been prepped a while back and arrived cold. Cold eggs, bacon, potatoes, everything. Second course was a bit better. The fried chicken and pulled pork were the best of the meal. The French toast was soggy and not really edible. The pancakes were fine. Overall, disappointed in our experience. There are much better brunch options with better vibes in Nashville despite the multiple good reviews of this place. We won't return unfortunately.

    My girlfriend and I was visiting Nashville, TN. We wanted a good brunch place to eat at. We saw this restaurant on Tik tok and knew that this was the one. Soon as we entered the building we loved how everything looked in the restaurant. Also our server was amazing, she let us know what was good and some of her favorites. I will go back again.

    The food wasn’t the best, and the server kept rushing us. When I did ask for the bill. The server said “thank god!” Sinema still had about an hour to 45 minutes before closing. I have no problem paying good money for a nice experience. But to be rushed like I’m a problem…..trying to enjoy my night and finish my drink. Servers need to learn better manners.

    I had a really enjoyable dinner at Sinema. Wine was excellent and the hostess, Cindy, & my server, Patrick, were top-notch!! It seemed like I had known them for years. The atmosphere was warm & cozy. My appetizer was the Buratta which was really delicious. I ordered the short rib which was fine. My understanding is the cuisine was French which meant the carrots were blanched - little crunchy for me. Would definitely go back!

    We had a group of 5 for a girls night out and had such a great dinner! The cocktails were delicious and we ordered most of the dishes on the menu. Everything was phenomenal. We sat upstairs where there was a party-like atmosphere. We enjoyed the music and the ambience. Our server, Yasmine, was very attentive and knowledgeable. She was so patient with our questions and took the time to ask our honest opinions on the dishes. I highly recommend the scallops or the short rib for a main dish. The Arancini, burrata, and crispy brussel sprouts were the favorite appetizers in our group. For dessert, I recommend the skillet cookie. It is super rich and chocolately so share it with someone. I will be recommending this place to everyone for a girls night out, special occasion, or a date night.

It’s a great deal for 5 courses to get a taste for the best that they serve. The salad, agnolotti and scallops were my favorite! Also our server was wonderful!

    Food was amazing and the atmosphere was very cool… something different than the typical Nashville restaurant/bar. However… it took forever to get our food. We did the prefix menu and it took an hour to get the first course which was a salad. Our server was super friendly, and did tell us up front that they were a little backed up, but being there for over 3 hours was a bit much.

    Went to Sinema with another couple tonight - most surprising thing was we had 6pm reservations and they open at 6 and they didn't even bother to have their bar open beforehand. Lost money to the 2 rounds of drinks and bar snacks we ended up getting beforehand at Panchos 2 doors down (even though they told us when we called that "most of the building was closed until 6"). We were sat promptly upstairs (people in front of us were walk ins and told no seating till 9pm so reservations are a must although where we were sat there were open tables for over an hour). It was nice and quiet, great ambiance, they had the Chicago movie going on projectors on the walls in the front and back. Cool set up upstairs with a bunch of couches if you're just there for a happy hour. Looked like there were two small private rooms upstairs as well. 3 of 4 had wine, I had the "Social Skills" cocktail, rum based, definitely fall flavors. Both couples started off with the Arancini - 4 came in each, smaller than when I picture traditional Arancini, the outside had some crunch but not as much as expected, flavor was reallly good though, I really liked them except the bottom two that were mostly soggy from being in the sauce at the bottom. Entrees we had 2 gnocchi. 1 boar and 1 chicken. The Gnocchi was really good, nice and light, the ragu was flavorful. The boar was ok, really underseasoned but it was the last night of it. Polenta with it was good. We got the whipped potatoes as a side just to try and they were a huge miss, no body, no creaminess, no salt, no flavor, definitely no horseradish. The chicken was good, cooked well, the veggies under it definitely had some spice to them which the waitress was great for warning us prior to ordering. Dessert we had 2 stuffed skillet cookies and the apple pie bread pudding, both were really good. Service was a 4.5, nice, knowledgeable on the menu, didn't seem like she had any other tables upstairs so hard to find to flag down.

    The food was good, we had the bread, agnolotti, short rib, scallop, and skillet cookie. All was very good with the exception of the short rib which was over cooked and on the dry side. The rest of the food was delicious. The ambiance was just ok… we were a couple put next to the large groups of 7-8 per table and the noise level was so loud we could barely hear each other. Not exactly what we were looking for as a couple at the nice dinner. The server was nice but not very attentive and was very slow. It seemed like we kept getting forgotten about. We were there for over 2 hours of which most the time was waiting for our server to come back around. Food was good, but ambiance and service could have been better.
