Perfectly cooked pork chop and steak. Bison meatloaf was great as well. Tasty drinks and great service!
This place is a Nashville staple
Cabana has been around a while. And there is good reason. The creations from the chef are unique. The simple hummus plate will electrify your taste buds...guaranteed! With small plates and entrees, you are sure to find the right amount of food for your hunger levels! The ambience is consistent with when it first opened. I have driven by Cabana quite a few times over the years. And it still stands tall in a city of incoming and outgoing restaurants. I am sure it has something to do with the chef's offerings as well as the top notch service. Cabana will get more of my money. Because they do Nashville dining right.

Don't plan on convo unless you're in a cabana
Went for an early dinner for 2 and was seated in the large room with 2 large, loud graduation parties seated at multiple tables pushed together. Couldn't help but notice when we were leaving that there were several 2-6 person tables and cabanas still empty in the other (quiet) section of the restaurant. We would've enjoyed it much more had we not been right next to loud, celebrating college grads and their friends. I would go back, but not accept the table we were given. Food was good--not great but very good. I was happy that they don't try to impress with trendy gourmet menu items and you can really tell what you're ordering.
Cabana's is a great place to impress a date.
The food was good, the pizza's are awesome but the crab hush puppies were a bit on the dry side. Other than that, great dinning spot for a date or special occasion.
always a great experience
They have excellent food, drink specials, and the atmosphere is really nice. It is a good place for to spend a date night or dinner / drinks with friends.
Visiting from out of town, we saw the reviews for the food and thought we would give it a try. Coming from a "super foodie," the food was okay, not great. The bison burgers were good, but the other items we ordered lacked flavor: the pork soup, fish tacos, and venison carpaccio -- all tasted fresh, but no seasoning. The ambiance is nice and might be fun to go for drinks, but probably would not order food there again.

Enjoyed a girls night celebrating a birthday. The service was great and the food was delicious!
Great unique food. Great service. Menu had a variety of items. Good wine list with moderately priced wines.
We absolutely loved this resturant!! The food was great, the staff was very friendly and catered to us. We loved that we got a private setting and could just be ourselves. We will definitely be going back very soon.

Our server was great, just the right amount of attentive. I got the duck and loved it - sides were great.
Ladies Night - What a success!
We sat outside for Ladies Night and had a blast! We split many appetizers and had a few cocktails each and were pleasantly delighted with the final bill. Our waitress was busy as it's a bit of a crazy night, but she never left us feeling ignored. Can't wait to go back!

Excellent choice. Service was prompt and courteous. Menu offered a variety of selections.
The Food was NOT good for the price
The Lobster mac and cheese gave me food poisoning. My friend order the steak, it was big, but bland and had no flavor. I doubt I will ever return there.

The wait staff provided the absolute worse service I could ever imagine -- the food was tasty but overshadowed by extremely poor service. Our dinner took two hours and this was completely due to poor service. Very disappointed.
We waited 2 hours for our food. Was told back up in kitchen, they could no handle all of the large parties

This was extremely disappointing. Our last night in Nashville and we wanted to dine near the Vanderbilt campus and do something local not a chain. We made our open table reservation and were seated soon after arriving. We received the appetizers we ordered within a reasonable amount of time but then proceeded to wait and wait and wait (over an hour) for our entrees. After requesting a manager we were greeted with biscuits and a promise to remove our appetizers from our bill and a promise that it would only be 10-15 minutes for our entrees. This is now 8:35. Our reservation was at 6:45. After another 15 minutes and no food. We decide to leave. They tried to charge us for our food that never arrived. Poor wait staff and management. We are now eating at the hotel bar where they are speedy and polite.

The fact that you can close the curtain to you table is awesome.
First time receiving bad service there.
We placed our order 1hr before our movie started. After 50 mins, still no food and people who were sat after we ordered received their food before us. Having to leave, the manager comped our drinks but we had to go to the movie hungry and eat late night (which we weren't trying to do). I believe an inexperienced server just forgot to put our order in but it did ruin our evening.
Cabana is a gem.
Cabana is a gem of a place. The "cabanas," booths with curtains that can be drawn for privacy, create an atmosphere that can seclude for romance or for business discussions. The food is upscale Southern with a twist and the service is outstanding. Cabana is an experience that tourists should check out and that Nashvillians should frequent. Let's support outstanding local restaurants like this one.
Adequate casual dining
Nice restaurant with a casual dining atmosphere. Food was good as was service. Nicely accommodates both couples and groups. Bar was actively not crazy.
Service was poor compared to previous experiences
I was disappointed with the service. Automatic 20% gratuity for a group of 4, which Im normally ok with but seemed like the server completely neglected us since she knew she was already getting a 20% tip.

The Food was great! The service was extremely slow. We were there for around two hours mainly because our service was so slow. I had a reservation and we only waited 10 minutes to be seated which was great.
I made a specific reservation for a cabana for me and my girlfriend. When I arrived we were seated at a regular table. I question the staff as to what happend the the cabana I specifically asked for. They told me "You can not reserve a cabana through the site, you would have to call the actual restaurant." I made this reservation 2 weeks in advanced and they wait to tell me in person? After this dispute me and my girlfriend attempted to give it a chance. The service was so slow. This place did not and will not receive any of my busy ever.
Can never go wrong at Cabanas

Ask for a cabana
Don't let them seat you in the back room, you'll get lost in the sauce. It's extremely noisy there since it's one big open room with Windows. I've been here before and loved sitting in one of the cabanas, but wanted to leave 15 minutes into dinner due to the poor service and noise level in the back. Also, go on a Wednesday, the prices are much better during ladies night than the regular priced menu...

Excellent service although didn't like having to share a Cabana with another party since it was a romantic evening out for us.

I made a reservation for myself and my date on Valentines. I requested a Cabana and was not told until I arrived that it would be a $250.00 min to use. I asked for a Cabana for 2. Was told none was available until 10:00 that evening. My rsvp was for 9. We were then seated at a table in the very back next to the door. We then waited for almost 2 hours to receive our food. BUT, our hostess was SO nice to us, and tried to make everything right, which made the difference. If she had not, this would have been a nightmare and I would never come here again. I will give it another chance, only because when we finally received our food, it was good, and the hostess/waitress was absolutely wonderful to us. I still would like my semi-private Cabana at the next visit!!!!!!

Cabana atmosphere (ambiance) is very appealing I enjoyed the open space seating in the rear of restaurant or having the availability to be secluded in the cabanas. The food is fairly good for the price but quality nothing to be wowed about. The service however could be better, or maybe the server had an off day or it was to busy.
Very slow food service
We waited almost an hour from the time we ordered to when the food came and I feel like the only reason it came then was b/c I told the waiter we had reservations somewhere else and would have to cancel the order if it did not arrive very soon.
Better Than Expected
We booked this reservation at the last minute. We were a little concerned that it was still available. We'll both meals were wonderful. I don't recommend sitting next to the windows when it's freezing outside. But I'd call the menu --exciting. Lots of variety. We had a very enjoyable evening and will add Cabana to our list of great meal restaurants.
Our waiter Brian was amazing!!! I love when I go to a new restaurant having a waiter/waitress that knows the menu and can make recommendations and suggestions. Brian hit it out of the ballpark!!!
