Five of us ate here. Myself and my partner and our three American friends (two are East Nashvilleans ) Exellent food all round. Wine good (French malbec) a bit pricey but it's come a long way I suppose! Everything on menu is of high quality, a lot of thought had gone into it. I had Monkfish which was as good... More

I went with a friend for an early dinner and it was good. It is not my favorite type of food, so I probably won't go back, but I am glad I tried it. The staff was very attentive and friendly.

So this place changes their menu every single day. I think they have a few staples they keep but most of the menu is brand spanking New each day. We loved everything we ate. Loved the atmosphere of an old service station from the 1930's. From what I understand the owner helped give this area of Nashville a chance when... More

A group of my bridesmaids met in Nashville to celebrate my birthday and upcoming wedding. As the bride, I researched restaurants for weeks. I was so excited to have dinner at Margot. Upon arriving at the restaurant, (yes, we had reservations) we were seated at a table upstairs. When my friend ordered a bottle of wine for us to share,... More

We've heard so much about this restaurant and finally had a chance to try it out. Food was good! drinks were okay. Service was fine. A bit pricey but would certainly give it another try.

I wish I could give this place a negative review because it doesn't even deserve one star. So we had a HORRIBLE experience with this absolutely awful server and the worst manager in the world. He told our birthday girl that he would not serve her for no reason. The manager said he stood behind his server and was extremely... More

What do I mean? This is a nice restaurant and I do like it. Their food is delicious and presented elegantly. The server was polite My experience was colored by: -Having to pay for parking across the street in the rain -No valet -Being greeted by a stereotypical East Nashville apathetic host -Having to stand in the doorway for 15...

Went here for brunch. If you want to call it that. Small menu selection but food made fresh. Service was great I had apple French toast and it was good. Cheese board was very small.

This restaurant tables allowed for a little privacy but were a little close together. The lamb was delicious the waitress did not know if the the tuna was red tuna, MahiMahi or Ahi tuna and told its it was ahi when it was not. It was good but a little salty. The waitress was not attentive, seemed to rush us... More
