Not a place to go if you are actually hungry.
Food was good... but as soon as they brought it out I knew we'd have to pick up something else or eat leftovers at home.... Each item is priced individually... no salad with your food. My husbands plate had maybe 3 oz of meet with a couple scoups of vegetable sauce... Hardly enough to feed a grown athletic man...
Was expecting the live music to be open to all... but it was in a tiny bar two rooms down from where we were seated and we couldn't really hear the music at all...
As always parking in Green Hills is a nightmare...I don't usually bother to write negative reviews... but I am so disappointed in this experience.. I will never go back.
If you are looking for upscale atmosphere with snack sized portions at premium prices, then this is the place for you.....I dont mind paying $100 for a night out with my husband but I don't want to leave hungry. (I am actually a very small person, so dont think that I need huge portions to be satisfied).
I am shocked to read any even semi-negative reviews of this restaurant because I thought it was fabulous. I'm from New York and have high standards for restaurants. so I am extremely picky about everything when it comes to details. F Scotts has it all: unbelievable food, excellent service, live entertainment, great management.
Food- I went there for the first time last weekend and already returned again this weekend because I could not wait to go back and try more dishes on the menu. I've tasted the chicken, scallops, and fettuccine bolognese. My favorite was the scallops which were perfectly cooked and plated with fresh angel hair pasta and a vegetable medley that worked beautifully with the dish. But every single thing on all the plates I've had there have tasted fantastic from the main dish to the garnishes. I've also had the frogs legs app, the sunchoke salad, and the parmesan truffle fries side. They were all terrific. This chef has the rare ability to make sauces that are not too heavy yet still robust in flavor. They also make their own pasta, which is rare for Nashville restaurants and really sets them apart in my opinion.
The service was great. The waiters were extremely helpful, friendly and let us control the amount of time we wanted to spend there. Meaning we had a long luxurious meal there when we wanted to and a quicker meal another time when we were in more of a hurry to catch a movie afterwards.
The live jazz was very enjoyable and matched the ambiance of the restaurant. You can tune it out if you aren't into music or sit closer to the band to enjoy it more.
Finally, this restaurant is well managed. They immediately had our table ready for us when we came in for our reservation (even when we were 10 minutes early.) And they were friendly and welcoming to all different types of clients (younger, older, classy, casually dressed).
If you have never been to F Scotts....GO NOW!
best anywhere!!!!. my hubby and I went there for our 20th anniversary and was made to feel as though we were the only people in the restaurant. The service by Larry was outstanding, the food absolutely fantastic!!He saved a table for us in the jazz bar for after dinner entertainment by the amazing Begee Adair. What a wonderful night! We told our neighbors about and they went the following night and had the same wonderful experience. We'll be back again and again!
question not review. Can anyone tell me if this is the type of place I can put on a good suit and enjoy some jazz without feeling like I'm over dressed? I'm 34 and just wanna find a nice atmosphere, free of hip-hop though I love it to the death, to relax and maybe have a conversation of substance with people who are willing to talk about more than Michael Jackson's death.
Too much attitude.
My wife and I had been looking forward to visiting F. Scott's for some time. We decided to try out the bar. I spent five minutes trying to find a wine selection that was appealing and reasonably priced. When I told the sommelier standing behind the bar that I wasn't knocked out by the selection, she made an indignant gesture, grabbed the wine list, and walked away. She then went out of her way to have loud conversations with other guests nearby around how she selects wines...conversations that my wife and I were very clearly meant to hear.
It actually took several minutes for one bartender to get me a drink at one point, even after she'd taken my order. Of course, having her mother come to the bar was probably a distraction since she spent most of her time talking to her. I also overheard some slightly unexpected comments on other patrons there.
Disappointing and not what I expected given the reputation here in Nashville.
Bland. Nice 20's ambiance, much older crowd, no wait on a Friday night. As for the food, I ordered the beef tenderloin and the beef and all the sides including the sauce were very bland. Even salt didn't help. The bread basket came out with stale bread. Live jazz in the bar was nice but I will not be returning to this restaurant.
Best restaurant in Nashville. Not only is F. scott;s the best restaurant in Nashville, but it compares favorably with wonderful restaurants around the world. The menu is seasonal, and there are always specials. The food is uniformly interesting, innovative and most important, absolutely delicious. The portions are ample, but not ridiculous. The servers are always well informed, and warm and attentive, without being intrusive. The entire environment is comfortable and relaxed, yet special enough for a dressy occasion. The daily, live jazz from the bar provides great background music but it is still quiet enough for pleasant conversation. Elise, one of the owners, is a wine expert, and fills her list with interesting, unusual and fairly priced bottles. She loves to help you choose. F. Scott's is a delightful experience in every way.
Not Impressed. Ate there when I first moved here about 3 years ago. I was so unimpressed I cant even remember what i had and never went back.
Best in Nashville. F. Scotts is one of the best, if not the best in restaurant in Nashville. The menu is always fresh, the staff is excellent, and the wine list is great. The jazz bar is great as well. Steve is the perfect host. We have enjoyed this restaurant since our first date in 2002. For special occasions or just a fun evening out, F. Scotts is consistent.
still one of the best. We went recently for our anniversary and had a very nice dinner. The server was very knowledgeable and he did a very good job pairing wines for us. We liked all our food, but our fish entrees were outstanding! My only knock is that it's a little dated inside, but it is Green Hills so it is what it is. The jazz in the bar is nice touch as well.
