good food – great atmosphere, food was good but not great. drink were great and bartender was very personable.
Best Chef in Town! – I recently visited one of my favorite reataurants in town to find the Menu had changed and there was booths!
I was pleased with the booths and, although I still think the food is as excellent as ever, I did love the Tapas idea which was abandoned. I don't blame them since Nashville doesn't always embrace "New Ways". (Sad but true. ) My favorite things were still on the menue and I could still order apps and sides in a Tappas style. I love the Bacon Wrapped Crab Cake, , Prociuto Onions, the Bruchetta,and the Grilled Cesar. My friend got the new Fish and Chips dinner and it is amazing!!!! Tempora batter, crispy and tender! Yummm!!!! Dessert...the Chocolate Soup of course! That keeps us coming back too. The service was extremely warm and casual, while still professional. Our server was funny , friendly and knew everything about the menue that we asked. The hostess was charming and accomodating to my request of seating, and I love the atmosphere!!! The beautiful mosaic mirror and the lighting, especially the light over the bar. Really Cool! Treat youself and go!!!
Oh my goodness, soooooo good!!! – Wow! The tapas were so delicious! The wine, service, ambience, and food were all perfect! The restaurant is beautiful with a huge mirror collage on the wall and clean tables -- trendy, but not overdone. Our waiter was incredibly nice and helpful with recommendations. And, of course, the food was divine. Here's what we had and LOVED:

So good! You have to go!!!
Great ambiance, strong drinks, and pretty good food – This restaurant is really fun to go to with friends or a date. The service we had at least once was less than great. I asked the server her recommendation on how to order my meat (medium, rare etc.). She was rather short with me and not very helpful. Nonetheless, it was good food and a fun time. The drinks do tend to be very strong. The bartender is really fun and easy to converse with.
should emphasize its best qualities – This is a restaurant with so much potential! I've gone to several business dinners and have found the cocktails strong and the desserts delicious. Vegetarian options are limited, but what they have is decent. I would love it if the restaurant would play up these points and make the rest of the dining experience more...decadent. However, metal patio furniture indoors -- which I assume is an attempt at modern minimalist design -- falls short aesthetically and, more importantly, on a comfort level.
great food, atmosphere and service – i went here for my anniversary and it was a wonderful dinner. the tapas are amazing and the atmosphere is romantic without being too stuffy. the bar selection was great and they have really unique mixed drinks available. my server was wonderful and it was reasonably priced. i hope to come back soon!
Not great. – Granted, it was really snowy the night we went, so maybe the food/service/atmosphere was off because of that, but Mirror definitely did not live up to the reviews. The food was just so-so, nothing came out piping hot or tasted very fresh; we ordered the antipasti platter, and the prosciutto was spoiled! The crab cakes tasted frozen, the empanadas were terrible, and to top it all off, our server must have been bored so she kept butting into our conversation to make idiotic small talk. This place is not romantic in the least, the bar did not seem to be happening, and there was definitely not any people watching going on. We won't be back.
Great Experience! – 5 of us were meeting in Nashville from various places (Knoxville, Louisville, Bowling Green, Nashville). Being the Nashvillian, I chose the restaurant. I picked Mirror, and I am SO glad I did. It had a cool looking interior, a pretty large, diverse menu, and the service was excellent. We had made a reservation, and the table was ready when we arrived (somewhere between 5 min early & on time), and they even had the waters waiting. I could tell our waters hadn't been there long because the ice was still fresh. That was nice. Our waiter was super helpful & friendly, without overdoing it. The our drinks came pretty fast, as did the food. The food was great. Two people ordered Large Plates, two people had two Small Plates, and one person just had one Small Plate. It was an enjoyable experience, and I definitely recommend it to anyone!
Good food...not romantic. – After looking for a romantic and trendy restaurant, my husband and I decided to try Mirror for our anniversary. It was not what we were expecting. Although the food was quite good, the ambience was NOT what we had in mind. There were two parties on either side of us that I had to keep from bumping elbows with. To make the matter worse, there was an overhead light shining directly over my face. It would be a great place for friends and casual conversation. If you are looking for a nice quiet date spot, look for something else.
Non-Smokers Beware – Our server was lovely, and the food was good -- but I do have one complaint. When several people at the bar are smoking, given that there's no natural separation in the restaurant, you can smell the smoke regardless of how far away you are seated from the bar. The smell of smoke destroys the meal, and leaves clothes with an altered smell than when you entered. Mirror has a lovely patio outside. What's the harm in serving smokers outside? I know its hot, and as a former smoker I sympathize -- but not enough to patronize the restaurant again.
