“Warm and inviting!”

The ambience here was wonderful. Service was prompt, professional and friendly. The braised short rib was tender and tasty. The shrimp and avocado appetizer was delicious. We did not have dessert. This was a very nice dinner!

“Excellent service and food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

There are so many fine restaurants in Nashville and 1808 at the Hutton is right up there with the best of them. As we were staying at the Hutton we had breakfast each morning and managed to fit in one lunch and one dinner in 1808. I have to say that the consistent excellent service and food quality for the breakfasts was as good as any hotel 5 star hotel that I have stayed in. We had lunch on a Saturday after a morning visit to Franklin and again, the service and food were top notch. The barman was especially helpful with wine selections. Dinner on our evening of arrival was excellent as well. The bar was extremely popular in the evenings but it would have been nice a grab that nightcap on our return from CMA Fest but the bar closes early (by my standards) As good as the food was, I think the most striking takeaway from 1808 was the excellence of all the staff. They were customer-focused throughout our stay and nothing was too much trouble for them.

“Very good restaurant, iffy bar....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

Staying at the Hutton on a week long trip to Nashville, we enjoyed this restaurant/bar twice. Both times we had the award winning slaw-topped cheeseburger, which was to die for. You truly must try it if you are in Nashville!

The specialty drinks were very overpriced and quite small with very little "oomph" to them, if you know what I mean. I am not a heavy or frequent drinker, but a $10 cocktail should be not only lovely to look at but have some punch to it. Theirs did not.

The service could not be beat, and the 1/2 price food during happy hour is almost too good of a deal to pass up. Highly recommend, but order beer or wine. :)

“Wine Service Fab”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

The bartenders were great, even bringing a credit card after it has been left behind by accident. Did not wait more than 30 seconds to get a glass of wine.

“Great Lunch Option on West End”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

A friend and I had one of those ""ladies who lunch" outings today as a break from our offices, and went to the 1808 Grille to see what the buzz has been about. What a delightful treat! Our salads -- the chopped salad for her, the red quinoa with hangar steak for me, plus a cup of fresh pea soup -- were perfect and very tasty on a muggy Southern day. The wait staff has friendly and helpful. This was one of the best lunches I've had in Nashville, and it was nice to be able to walk in and be immediately seated at noon. Highly recommend -- an unexpected treat for a hotel restaurant,
