    Worst restaurant in Nashville. Low quality food was served. We could not be seated on the floors set aside for patrons with reservations because there was not enough staff. Disappointing experience. I am a local resident and will never return nor recommend this restaurant.

    The food was decent. But the old fashioned I ordered was the worst old Fashioned I’ve ever had. Sent it back and the second one I received was no better than the first one I got.The waiter was top notch but that’s about it. Thanks

    30 Min after we ordered our waitress came over to say they were out of salad mixing. They were willing to work out what we could eat with arugula as a green, subpar. No discount or comp on price. And she never came to check how it was until time she offered us the bill.

    The food was perfectly ok but it took quite a long time to arrive and when we asked the server how long it would be we were told they had no control over it - I would have expected them to at least go and find out.

    Was in town for the CMA fest made a reservation a month ago and when we got there the hostess on the first floor took my name saw we had a reservation and sent us to the fourth floor. Once there the hostess upstairs completely ignored me until I told her we were sent up here because our table was ready she said we are very busy and full and we don’t have a table for you. My husband sees an open table for 4 and tells her there’s a table right there she says that’s a servers table whatever that means so I ask to see the manager. The hostess then decides to seat us at the open table. No explanation just takes us to the table. She was very rude and unprofessional. Loved our actual server and the food was great but that hostess should not be a hostess. Kathy Buhaj

    The food was average but the service was horrible. Every staff member that we encountered were rude and disrespectful. We had to send a drink back because it was made poorly and was not what we ordered, the waiter responded with an attitude and did not offer to replace the drink or remake it.

    Sat at the bar on the 6th (top) floor facing out the huge, open garage door windows. Our server Bradley was friendly and attentive. We had the omelet and the California breakfast sandwich..both yummy. They came with great breakfast potatoes. Bloody Marys were spot on, and not too spicy as requested. Great way to start our day on Broadway!

    The Diner experience is declining. This used to be a place where the experience and the cuisine were top notch. This restaurant has the potential to be the hip place in Nashville. I love this location and love the scenic view but the experience seems to be slowly declining each time. Before working in redoing the entire menu and then hire staff that really want to work and serve.

    Arrived a few minutes early for our reservation (4 people) and were told that we would have to wait 30 minutes or so because "they didn't have enough kitchen staff to seat more people at this time". About 30 minutes later when we were finally seated, everything was pretty much okay, besides them being out of a few food items due to various shortages (take your pick). The place was nice and the view from the 4th floor was very nice.

    Our family arrived 20 min early for our reservation. We were told we had to wait until 7pm… we ended up waiting over 59 minutes with a reservation. Once we were seated, our server was nice and friendly yet our dinner took forever. Food was good but the menu was small.

    The waitress never checked on us for the entire meal, and we had to get her attention to ask for water for 1 hour and request her service. When we asked her for water, she proceeded to help others and not return. She left a water pitcher at another table so we had to pour ourselves and then she got mad at us and had an attitude towards us for the remainder of the meal. On a positive note, the food was outstanding and the atmosphere was great!

    Only thing we could suggest are some sort of shades on the windows, when the sun is at full shine, folks can't see to eat much less order!! Something needs to happen especially with summer right around the corner. Could really be a sweltering dining experience.
