Okay so place looks like an absolute dump on the outside but step inside and be amazed. Gorgeous bar along with everything else. Service is top notch. Drinks are amazing but expensive. Food is amazing and unique, not even too over priced. Haven't stayed for the burlesque show but definitely plan on it at some point. Other than the wait you won't be disappointing at this place.
This dinner was amazing! It's been a month and we are still talking about the food and atmosphere. If your here to have deep long conversation it's not the best bet as the live music is loud. The cocktails were perfect. The vibe of this place is hip and very dark. Our table was lit by one candle. Can't wait to come back!
This place is Legit! Truly feels like a speakeasy. Jazz music, good food, even better drinks, an authentic, historical venue that has maintained its ambiance. Oh, and at 11PM, they have a tasteful burlesque show that is a lot of fun, and will transport you to another time.
OMG!!!! I am writing this review as I sit in Skulls rainbow room, stuffed to the gills! Food and atmosphere is nothing short of amazing. My wife and I are here on our 20 year anniversary and we could not have chosen a better place to celebrate. Very friendly staff and impeccable service. Thank you and we'll definitely visit again!!!
Hit the mark on every aspect of "fine dining". Incredible atmosphere, incredible service, the food was amazing. For the restaurant experience alone, it was worth visiting. I also attended the burlesque show, the I'll me that was western themed. No nudity beyond what a typical burlesque show has. Very classy, very entertaining and fun, and worth the stay. The entire experience was great down to the dancing, singing, and engaging the crowd.

The service was outstanding and the food was simply amazing. I will not cover appetizers. For the main course we had the barrel-cut steak and the dover sole with mashed potatoes and seared mushrooms. All of those were exquisite on every level, accompanied by, I repeat, unprecedented service and a great selection of wines. The interior is screaming but elegant. It can be described as "art-deco-chic". The hall is very large. There's a terrace with a fireplace outside as well. On a side note, the music selection didn't fit that well, at least at the time we were there. The live band was great, but perhaps a soothing jazz or some mellow vocals would feel more in tone.
During our 34th wedding anniversary celebration trip to Nashville, we made the wise decision to splurge and eat at Jeff Ruby's. Boy are we glad we did. We didn't have a reservation, but it worked out great because the patio seating is first come, first serve and it was a beautiful night to sit outside. Our waiter (Kevin) and the entire wait staff were polite and attentive. I even got escorted to the restroom when I asked for directions. THAT was a first!. The cocktails were lovely, the food was incredible (side dishes are enough for two or more). The wine recommendation was spot on! Kevin gave us some insights about local music spots (Skull Rainbow Room) which was also wonderful. i highly recommend Jeff Ruby's Restaurant and offer a very sincere THANK YOU for a wonderful evening.
The service is impeccable. My wife and I enjoyed the professional chats and recommendations. As for the food, Our hats off to the chef. We've tried many steakhouses around the world and this is by far the best. We will most definitely be back. Much love from Ontario, Canada.
It wasn't the greatest experience. Our server ignored us most of the evening. I ordered a mixed drink, may as well have been a straight shot of mixed liquor. So they replaced it and the next one reminded me of cough syrup. They did however give us a free dessert that was fantastic on the house for our anniversary. The sushi was spot on the steak was amazing!! The atmosphere was really relaxing. Apart from those minor issues it's very nice indeed.
Good food great ambiance. Place is good for a date or office party. It's a classy place

If you are planning to go on a weekend you definitely need to make reservations. We watched people being turned away countless times because this place was booked for the whole night. The food is amazing. I had the MC burger, it was very juicy and filling. It's worth the $3 upcharge to get mac & cheese for your side dish. Chances are it will be going home with you because their burgers are BIG.
Our group of 30 reserved the upstairs for a team builder lunch and were so glad we did! The accommodations were perfect for our needs with a bar for drinks, side bar for appetizers, stage & mic for playing games, and plenty of seating. The staff was incredible from the manager to the bartenders and wait staff. And the food - Yummy! That mac&cheese with hot chicken is to die for! And the pizza..Mmm...Looking forward to hosting another event there or just going to eat with my family. I think the Stillery made some new friends!
Absolutely the best service and food imaginable! We had our 10 year old son and was passing through Nashville. We stopped and wanted to try it. Our waitress was amazing! Very friendly and on top of things. The manager guy was equal as awesome. We sat right by where they served the food to the servers and it was pretty awesome. Our pizza was a few minutes (like 5) after our burgers and they kept apologizing but we all shared food and it was totally fine. Deviled eggs were amazing, baked cheese with bread was amazing, Sonora (or something) burger was wonderful, hot chicken pie absolutely wonderful!!! I'd give more than 5 stars if I could!
The pizzas here are insanely great. Beet salad was delicious and the brussel sprouts appetizer was amazing. Drinks are great. The live entertainment was also great. I can't say anything negative about this place. Service is also fabulous.
First time here, and the next time I'm in Nashville, I'll be back. My wife and I had the Chop-Chop salad and the Hangar steak. The steak was requested medium-sized rare, and came out spot on. Melted in your mouth. The large salad portion could feed two people easily. All in all, definitely worth a stop in to try.

I enjoyed the atmosphere. The service was top notch. I especially enjoyed my server Christy, she was impeccable! My wife and I went there to celebrate our anniversary and they made it feel special. My only complaint is that the food is skimpy! I ordered the lamb and it was expensive about $40.00, but it was the size of two chicken nuggets! It was good but such a skimpy portion. Otherwise, it was a pleasant experience.
The food was fantastic, popping with flavors from appetizers to desserts. Everyone at our table raved about every dish, and every dish was passed around. My favorites were the scallops and olive oil almond cake. The staff (especially our server Mary) was as great as the food. Everyone greeted us coming and going. I couldn't recommend this place more.
Walked in on a late Saturday with a friend - and we were promptly seated at the bar. Good beginning and great service from start to finish. Food was absolutely delicious. Definitely our favorite restaurant during our time in Nashville. Highly recommend and will definitely be back!
We went in after hours and they were still open. Food was delicious. I ordered the vodka pasta it was delicious and cooked perfectly. Staff was extremely friendly. Will definitely visit again.
This review is a year overdue. Has anyone else ever gone to a restaurant so that they could have some more cauliflower (with truffle oil)? During a few days spent in Nashville last July, seeking good dining between business engagements, I and two serious "foodies" made a second trip to Etch just for that reason. We laughed at ourselves for that motive, but we went! And, reading other reviews, I recall and affirm that staff was extremely knowledgeable of ingredients and preparation, and patiently, amiably answered many questions.

I was part of a bachelor party with 16 guys and we had an amazing experience with Kayne Prime. We had a private room overlooking a nice view of the city. The service was quite impressive and their recommendations were flawless. Our waiters made life simple by knowing how much food to order as we did family style sides and starters. All we had to do was pick an entree, then sit back and relax as all of the food was unbelievable. Will absolutely make a trip back if I find myself in Nashville again.
Best steak I've had in Nashville. Service is impeccable. Not to mention the popcorn buttered lobster and likely everything else on the menu is amazing. Prices are high, but that's every fancy steakhouse in the world. This is a must if you're visiting the city and looking for something high end. Enjoy :)
Our favorite restaurant in Nashville. Super-creative menu and excellent execution and service. Our steaks were superb. The appetizers were dazzling. Don't miss the popcorn lobster or the cotton candy bacon!
Awesome service and steaks! Great place for special occasions. But remember that there is a dress code and the menu pricing is on the high end. So save up on that discretionary fund and have a great time!
Absolutely amazing experience all around. The wait staff was helpful and professional and the food was some of the best I've ever had. I can't wait to go back!
