404 Kitchen Ratings and Reviews

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.

The wine, beer, hors d'oeuvres, and desserts were great. The service was excellent. The entrees were less impressive, especially the rabbit entree. There were too many dumplings, hardly any rabbit and too much sauce.

This is the second time that I've eaten there, and it was OUTSTANDING again. I took my wife there for her birthday, and the food was top shelf, and the service even more so. Priced extremely reasonably for how wonderful the experience was.

Between impeccable service and the even more INCREDIBLE(!!!) food, I can comfortably say that the 404 Kitchen is the best restaurant I've ever been to. I flew into Nashville for my first anniversary over this past weekend. Upon arrival, I gave my name for the reservation and the hosts immediately recognized it (I mentioned why we were coming in while making the reservation), saying "Happy Anniversary!" Our server then greeted us promptly, two glasses of champagne in hand, and also congratulated us. The recognition was a really sweet touch that made dinner all the more special.
We opted for the chef's tasting menu, myself with the wine pairing included, and I couldn't have been happier with it. The scallop toast is to die for - and can be ordered off of their standard menu! I definitely recommend it. We also had lobster thermidor, fish stew, swordfish, and rum cake. Each dish was special in its own right. The chefs, servers, and all employees of the 404 should take pride in themselves because everything was absolutely perfect.

On our second visit to 404, the excuse was an anniversary, and we were not disappointed with the ambiance, the service, or the quality of the food. This is a lively environment with closely-set tables, so don't expect seclusion or privacy. 404 is a decidedly non-pretentious eating spot that certainly rivals anything else in the Gulch neighbohood.

We had superb service from our friendly and knowledgeable waiter. The food, starting with the appetizer and ending with dessert was excellent. The flavors of the food were not overpowering; on the lighter side and fresh tasting. We are from out of town and we're very glad that we tried 404 kitchen. We loved the intimate atmosphere as well.

This was one of our first dinners out alone since having our baby- FOR A REASON- this place is always on the mark, always. The staff is friendly and knows their stuff. We had cocktails while waiting on our table - the wheat vodka suggested was a nice change to my regular Tito's. Once seated we got our 'normal' waitress who came from another great Nashville original and she is FABULOUS. Our appetizers were great. The lamb tartare was life changing - seriously delicious. Our entrees were spot-on. This place doesn't promise, but it does deliver, always.

We were referred to 404 by a former Nashville resident. We were blown away by the quality of the food and dining experience! Beautifully displayed dishes, excellent wine/drink offerings, and wonderfully friendly server. All in all, an excellent experience and restaurant.

404 Kitchen is a great little place. Food is great, service is great. It is a bit cramped and it is also pricey. The wine list is expensive for a bottle, most were over $100. We were there at 7:00 and it was crowded and so hard to have conversation, but as it cleared out it was quieter and much better.

The food was outstanding! The atmosphere was ok not my favorite. We're hoping to dine inside in the main restaurant next time. Reminds me of a small restaurant you would see in New York. But the food was definitely worth it !

This is one of the best restaurants I've been to in Nashville! The food was phenomenal. We were a party of three and we all ordered something different and loved our food. The waiter was wonderful. Very open to opining on one dish over another and his recommendations were on the money! The rice pudding is a must try dessert. It was the best I've ever had. The space is very small and the tables are very close together. Some may not like that but my party struck up a conversation with the couple next to us and we all had a great time. This is definitely a Nashville gem. If you want to go, you should make reservations well in advance.

Reserved a table for a date and staff worked with me in order to move my reservation to a later time when plans changed the day of. Friendly and helpful staff at every interaction. Good food and atmosphere. Everything we tasted was delicious and prepared excellently.

404 Kitchen is one of Nashville's best restaurants. I have eaten there many times and have celebrated special occasions with family and friends. The staff members are warm and knowledgeable about the food without being snooty in the least. The food is wonderful. Most recently I enjoyed the rabbit entree. Their cocktails are superb. If you love good food and drink, you will love 404 Kitchen.
