404 Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
oh MY. i went here this evening... and then i went again the following night. the burrata is superb, but beware the leeks in it as they, in spite of being melt-in-your-mouth delicious, do cause your tongue to absorb their flavor for a good 24 hours thereafter.
that said! the winner was the burrata, but the pork bolognese came a close second. the pasta was perfectly done, and the sauce tasted both fresh and hearty. i ended my meal with the chocolate budino, which tasted like a hand-made chocolate pudding with hints of orange and topped with hazelnut halves. i continue to salivate when i think of 404 kitchen and ache to return...
We dined at 404 Kitchen before going to see the Chieftans with the Nashville Symphony. Food was great. We started with the scallop appetizer and grilled cabbage. The scallop appetizer was especially good. For entrees, we had the halibut and the pork bolognase. Both were excellent. Wine list is good. Our service was outstanding. My only suggestion is that some of the tables be removed. Seating is too tight and I don't like to feel like I'm dining with the neighbors at the next table.
I have a dairy allergy and 404 was not accommodating in the least. There was literally only one (1) entree' on the menu that I could order. All of the sides were made with dairy. The server, though knowledgeable about the menu and what did/did not contain dairy, didn't offer any accommodations. Our bill, including tip, was almost $100- for two (2) mediocre entree's and two (2) sparkling waters. I didn't feel like our server was striving at all to give us a good restaurant experience, especially since neither of us were drinking. My husband gave up alcohol for lent and I'm 34 weeks pregnant. I doubt we will return, which is unfortunate. This was our second time at 404 -we loved it the first time, but found it was not worth our time and money this last visit.
The lamb sugo, bourbon cocktails, and steak were absolutely magnificent. The swordfish was overcooked, which was very disappointing and the dessert: brownie with coffee ice cream was hard! Also, the server was kind of rude and she didn't come around to the table often.
I have been to 404 about 4 times now and it has become a "Go To" for a business dinner for me. The bar is a great place to sit and have a conversation over a craft drink (bar has an amazing bourbon selection...even their own barrels), the food is excellent (though they could have more red meat on the menu), and the atmosphere is hip and quaint. Wine list is also quite good. Highly recommend this restaurant!
The food did not disappoint. The tables however are extremely close to one another. So be prepared to have quiet conversations and suck in as you squeeze into your seat so you don't tip the drinks on the table beside you. This place is best suited for dates, not large groups. The food was outstanding though. I'd go back & would recommend to friends. Had the rabbit , scallop toast, butter beans and husband had chicken leg. All were delicious on had flavors that were different from usual tastings. Thoroughly enjoyed for vday!
This tiny place is a gem amid the much larger and less personal gulch dining options. Although we four ordered wine, the spirit selection (so wonderfully displayed) looks amazing. We would love to go back and sit at the bar for dinner. The food is super - delicious and plated beautifully. Desserts are definitely worth the calorie splurge. The service is attentive without being intrusive.
This is a delightful little( seriously little ) restaurant. It is tucked in to the ground level of the 404 Hotel and has a limited number of comfy seats. If you are a patron of size this might not be a great choice.We were squished up against the wall and were positively forced to hear every word, slurp and burp at the table next to us. Our waitress was outstanding and knowledgable and provided us with excellent service and food recommendations. I did feel that the menu was limited and several of the entree options were of the pasta gnocchi variety, quite tasty but also quite pricey for a bowl of pasta( $28-$30). I think it would have been fun to sit at the bar and eat, you can see into the kitchen and there did appear to be a bit more personal space. The food was tasty, the service very good and the limited menu interesting.
I love the relaxed feel of this place. Very unique construction from shipping containers. Food was creative with some unusual combinations of ingredients. Our table had rabbit in a tasty broth, (my dish and very good), chicken, and trout. We were treated with a special lamb small plate as a gift from the chef. It was so, so good. We will definitely return to try more dishes. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable. I was surprised they did not offer iced tea - we are in the south you know!
Everything we had was tasty; as a whole the menu tended toward simple (humble?) dishes. Unfortunately to command this sort of price for simply prepared food, a restaurant needs to elevate the dish or have some special ingredients. It was very well done, don't get me wrong, but the menu and drink prices lead me to believe that this restaurant's size simply can't sustain the operating costs for a rather ordinary menu.
Last bit, when your vaunted whisky selection is priced 25% over other places and you're pouring 1.5 oz instead of 2, it doesn't feel fancy, it just feels like taking advantage.
The food was certainly good enough for 4 or 5 stars, and it's worth trying it out once, but between the price and somewhat less than pleasant atmosphere, I am not sure we'll be back. Ironic that the tiny shipping container digs are the only thing that makes this restaurant novel and the only thing holding it back.
