Best soups in town! – Eastland has become both me and my wifes favorite dining stop. Chef Hals soups are a must when you go. We both had the Wild Mushroom Soup on our last visit, and it was excellent. The fish entrees change daily and should not be overlooked. All in all this is a must stop for a casual dining experience. Do try and leave room for the beignets, a great finish to the meal. Plan on spending around $100.00 for dinner for two with a bottle of wine.
Excellent date restaurant -- great also for fun groups. – I took my lovely date -- in her pretty dress -- to Eastland and we both loved it. Excellent food and great atmosphere. We had the goat cheese and honey appetizer and really enjoyed it. My date had the pork porterhouse chop and it was awesome (and huge -- she ate less than half). I had the duck breast with coconut rice. Also very excellent - I would definately highly recommend. Prices were very reasonable about $100 for two with a bottle of wine.
Great date spot! – I use to live in San Francisco where the food and wine was always amazing almost anywhere you chose to go. My boyfriend and I still travel back and forth frequently and we are always disappointed to come home to Nashville's food scene until we tried Eastland Cafe. The atmosphere was calming and romantic and the food was excellent even for the price. We will be back for a date as soon as possible.
Great Food and ambiance – We have been to Eastland Cafe several times. We live in Brentwood, and are from Chicago, so we are constantly looking for great restaurants (not a chain).
We tend to sit at the bar to eat and have a few drinks. Amy makes terrific cosmos (I know, so passe, but I love them) and my hubby likes the beer selections. The service is spot on, not overly fussy, but there when you need them.
The food is fabulous! The goat cheese brulee is so delicious, I would be happy just to eat that! But, don't miss the salmon (Perfectly cooked, wonderful flavor) or the duck breast.
The prices are great, especially compared to Franklin markups at places like Saffire and The Red Pony.
We love it! Our only complaint, they allow smoking. It is a real drag when in a small restaurant. Go smoke free!!!!
Ahhh...a place where I can relax and be taken care of – I great stop after work to wind down. Amy (bartender) is excellent at assisting with wine or drink selections - just tell her what you usually drink: full-bodied red zin? rich chardonnay with a crisp finish? If you can't describe your preference, just tell her what you' ve enjoyed in the past and ask her to let you try something similar. Taste, sweetheart. Don't order a glass or bottle of something that you know nothing about.
The food. It has always been wonderful. I had an overcooked appetizer once (out of many visits). I calmly sent it back to the kitchen, because that's what grownups do.
I've taken 6 different friends to this restaurant and they all loved it.
Great Service okay food – The service was great, we had a party of 12 and had reservations, the seating was immediate. The menue had some interesting offerings, and good wine selection. The martini selection was not very unique. The food was not really what I expected, my biyfriend had the pork chop (salty) and I had the Mahi Mahi and it was dry, with little sauce.... the restaurant was loud, but the overall experience was good, just the food could have been alittle better. Our tab was $165.00 for 2 people with a bottle of wine and the tip included.
Good food, wine not so good – I was very excited to try to the new Eastland Cafe with all the hype that I have heard. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my evening. Suggestions that I would give, is that I agree with the last review, the wine list is one of the worst that I have seen, overpriced and not much to offer. The food was excellent, nothing to complain on here. The service was excellent, the waiter, Daniel is just such a delight! And last the evening that I went the building was quite hot and the tables we so small that we had to adjust after the different courses. All in all everything was good and I will return, just hope there is major work on the wine line and minor work on the comfort level.
Great Charm but below par..... – My wife and I have been fans of Park cafe since they opened. Their food and service has always been wonderful.
I travel a lot for business and I have the opportunity to go to many nice nice restaurants. I have seen a lot of independent restaurants open second venues and try to ride their successes in different parts of the city. Some work. Some fail.
I feel Eastland Cafe has beautiful charm and well on their way to being as successful as Park Cafe.
If I could make a suggestion. Your wine list in both restaurants, is below par.
Your lists have no description. It is hard to read, no suggestive pairing, and no classics to choose from. I love wine!!! I love learning about wine but your list in both venues is not what it should be. I'm not sure who is making the decisions. Hopefully that person is not choosing wine that just appeals to their palette.
2 buck chuck is what some of the offerings are. Plus, the pricing seems weird compared to Tayst, Margo, and other Indies in town.
Hopefully you will get a handle on your decisions so you can be the restaurant you should be.
A Dear Old Friend w/ a new make-over! – Happy to see exciting updates to the ambiance, decor & menu. But the same comfort as an old friend... Particuarly, since Daniel is still there from Chapel Bistro (ask for him)! Who can ask for more?#* Service & food great.
Great all around! – We were excited to find out this great little restaurant was taken over and reopened with a Park Cafe affiliation. We love Park Cafe! I would definitely recommend reservations on the weekend. I call on a Saturday afternoon and got a great 6:30 spot and when we arrived people were being turned away if they didn't have a reservation. The drink menu is great, the food was awesome! The service was even better!
