My sister recommended 404 as one of her favorite places in Nashville, a city already teeming with amazing food finds. The cheese plate was divine. Trust me, cheese is my love language.
My husband ordered the tri-tip (holy moly, that meat though) and I got the pork bolognese. Sorry, herbivores, their meat dishes is where 404 shines.
Their bourbon selection was RIDICULOUS in the very best way. My husband could have died happy; maybe one day in the super-far-off future I'll just read their bourbon list as his eulogy.
The atmosphere was beautiful, tight, and cozy like a hug from your favorite, not-old-smelling aunt - don't go here unless you're willing to make some good conversation with the rest of your party.
We will definitely be back, roughly 350 times (hint: that's the approximate number of different bourbons they have).

My wife and I dined at 404 and while it was mostly a good experience, it didn't live up to the standards we'd come to expect from similar restaurants in Nashville. My wife's rabbit was quite good but my food came out so salty that neither of us could stand it. It was only the second time I've ever had to send something back, and while I felt bad about it, I can't imagine anyone being able to enjoy such salty food. I wouldn't rule out giving them a second chance sometime down the road because they do have an interesting menu and good cocktail and wine selections.

We had an exceptional meal here. It is a small restaurant with a nice atmosphere and cozy feel. The menu is creative and the execution is great/delicious. We eat out frequently and have had the opportunity to try many of the best high end dining spots in Nashville - this is right at the top, with the only other place worth mentioning in the same sentence being Etch.
We tried: scallop toast (truly amazing), lamb sugo (earthy, citrus, and very good), pork bolognese (amazing flavor, perfectly done pasta), tri tip (excellent dish), and we split the brownie which was great too. We had intended to order the burrata but they were sold out for that night (our reservation was 815p). It was a fun night out and the servers and even other diners nearby were helpful and engaging. I highly recommend 404, happy eating!

Food and service were outstanding - highly recommend the pointed arch cocktail, the housemade burrata, the lamb sugo, pappardelle bolognese (surprisingly light!), chicken on a string (so crispy and juicy), the cornbread, and the butterbeans. Oh my, those butterbeans. I would love the recipe for those. The brownie with coffee ice cream was also good - warm and gooey.

Great service and a great selection of drinks and cocktails made dining here a pleasure. The food is exquisitely prepared and follows a generally French theme. The one downside is that I think that the dishes are somewhat limited in comparison to 404's peers in Nashville, both in selection and value. Since I'm more interested in the food than the beverages, I can't see revisiting very often.

Date night with my wife - had heard good things about 404 - our scallop toast appetizer was great - my wife ordered the beef and it was good - I ordered the Amberjack - found out they had sold out and the replacement was Trout - the trout was okay - we ordered the red potatoes as a side and found them plain
We will give 404 another try and will recommend it

Our family enjoyed celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary together at 404! Loved the rabbit stew with a perfectly pared wine. Our waiter was very helpful and answered all our questions. Desserts were a mesmerizing treat as well. Thank you 404 Kitchen!

Took my bro-in-law from out of town who's a major foodie. He was thrilled. Our waitress was amazing, very knowledgeable and personable. She took extra care in meeting our every whim. Food was wonderful as always. Definitely will be back.

Loved this place! The food was delicious, I had the bolognese, it was fantastic! The whiskey selection is great. The atmosphere was warm, welcoming and intimate. We were in Nashville for a fun weekend away and loved this gem.

Both entrees were good but very very salty. If they weren't so salty, they would have been great.
We had the rum cake and ginger ice cream. It was fantastic! Service was excellent and atmosphere was wonderful.
Will return again, but please watch the salt.

Have now visited 404 twice in a week, and it's fantastic. The food prep is outstanding, the flavors and combinations are creative and so pleasing, the wait staff is superb!
It's a tight seating, but once there it is a special Nashville treasure, Scott Bolus is a fabulous chef, and this is definitely a must try.

This is an awesome venue and great atmosphere. The staff is awesome and great at explaining the menu and making recommendations. The menu is nice and there is definitely something for everyone. There were four of us and we had the Halibut (very good), the fish stew (also very good) and the tri-tip (also good) and that summarizes the food. It is really good but nothing stands out EXCEPT the cornbread. Everything else was really good.

First time at 404. I was prepared for the tight quarters based on the shipping container construction. That was the only thing small about our experience. I had the Bahamian tasting menu which was fantastic. My wife had the tri-tip with polenta. Dessert was the Dark and Stormy rum cake with ginger ice cream. A truly fantastic meal. Oh yeah, our server (can't remember his name) worked harder than an ugly stripper. Although he had other tables, he made us feel like we were the only ones in the restaurant.

Very satisfied with my first meal at 404 Kitchen. Really enjoyed my Pork Bolognese, and my wife thoroughly enjoyed her Tri Tip steak on a bed of polenta (a hint less salt would be appreciated, but this is a savory dish after-all. I was blown away by the bar selection - whiskeys that I haven't seen in years, are readily available at this bar. Year's deep in their BTAC and PVW (if you know, you know.)
I would highly recommend this restaurant (and I already have) to any of my friends.

Loved the small room, it was very cozy. The services was unbelievable, I think there may have been more staff than guests. Our waiter had complete mastery of the offerings and was able to make suggestions on both food and wine. The food was spectacular.

My husband and I had the chef tasting with wine pairings. I have diet restrictions and I was impressed with how they were able to adapt. I enjoyed the same dishes but created from scratch on the spot. Everything was delicious... the wine pairings were excellent with the food.

Excellent spot. Wonderful food, thoughtful service. The place is very small, which makes for a cozy feel. When it fills, because of the proximity of the tables to one another, conversation is a wee bit more challenging; if you make an early reservation, you can have a delightful date and beat the loud talkers and din.

Being seated in the first room closest to the door was a disappointment. Almost like our business and comfort was less important.
Aside from that the service was nice and prompt. All the food was creative and exciting.

Our waitress was very engaging and provided personal thoughts and observations about the menu. The space is small and intimate but relaxed and informal. The food was outstanding and the service very attentive but not overbearing. If you have the means, I highly recommend.

This restaurant was to die for! The service was phenomenal. The food was even better. This was by far our favorite restaurant in Nashville during our visit! Very small dining room, but tables were not uncomfortably on top of one another. Perfect place to impress a date.
