Great atmosphere – I went to Cabana's for a work event and sat in the back lounge area. The drink menu was good and the decor and people watching were great. I traveled between the back bar and the front bar (you can only smoke at the front bar) and think it would be great to go back with friends and reserve a cabana. I would definitely recommend reservations - we went on a Thursday night and it was hopping. We only ordered appetizers, the chips were great as well as the pizza. Watch the parking situation - I valeted my car and by the time I left the valet guys were gone! I ended up collecting my keys from the bartender and had to pushed the panic button on my remote so that I could locate my car!
Best Trendy Spot – This place is an excellent spot to see and be seen. Great decor, very good food, and o.k. service. Play trivia, sit in secluded curtained booths or sit in the large atrium area around back for a more tradtional dinner experience.
Recommended, But One Huge Complaint – Please do something about the music. Really, they need to put even a fraction of the time they put into the design into the playlists. The place is supposed to have a modern feel, but they're content to default to some garbage nu-metal or generic rap for the soundtrack? And the music is always the same, whether it's a quiet Wednesday night or Saturday night at 11. Change it up depending on the situation and get someone with some originality who will play new, up and coming tracks.
Great hip place all around! – I have visted Cabana 4-5 times now for various occasions: girls night out, birthday party, casual date night, etc. Everyime I have been completely satisfied. The hostesses can be a bit snotty, but overall the service has always been great - only once have we had a reservation. The ravioli was wonderful. The pizzas are always good - buy one get one free on Sundays! The lobster brie mac & cheese is also great. Plus they have a $5 martini menu all night sun-wed and 5-7 other nights with some great choices.
Very hip, fun and sometimes live music. Will continue to visit.
Think you have a reservation? Don't believe it. – I made "reservations" for six in non-smoking. I put this in quotation marks because 24 hours later, less than two hours before my reservation, I received a phone call telling me that we had been bumped into smoking by a larger party. Fortunately, I was able to find a table at Tayst, just down the street. We went there and had a terrific meal.
Apparently these clowns need a refresher course on the meaning of a reservation. Presumably the same also goes for their sister restaurant, Sunset Grill.
Not worth another visit – My husband and I occassionally will dine out for a date. It's ritual we try to do as a young hip married couple of 10 years. We recently moved to Franklin about a year ago from NY due to work. We often review new places on city search for great ideas. We wanted to try Cabana since we heard so many great reviews. We just left there no more than 1 hour ago.
To say the least we were not pleased. The decor & service was okay, the drinks were good but the food was horrible!!!!!!!!!!!!!. We left there looking for another place to grab a bite. I think it's over hype for the new nashville scene. I was very disappointed looking for a new urban flair in Nashville. If people in Nashville think this scene is great, I am sorry to say they need to venture out a little more.
Could Have Been Better! – Cabana is not all it is cut out to be regarding their food selection. I had their salmon, which was alright. Chilis grilled salmon taste better and cost a lot less. The atmosphere is nice, but it was ruined by a city councilman who had made a racial comment to a group of people. One of the affected person argued with the city councilman regarding this racial statement, and an employee of Cabana told him and the people he was with to clam down or they will be kicked out. I do not know why Cabana employees focused on the minority group, when the city councilman was the one who started this confrontation? I ranked their customer service below average.
Great Service – Since there was a review for bad service I had to follow up with how great our service was. We never had to wait on a drink, the food came out in a timely manner and really was good. I had the pizza and would reccomend.
Bad Service – Don't bother trying to get a drink unless you know the bartender! I have been ignored at both an empty bar, and a half full dining room by staff that seems completely disinterested in their jobs. One exception--Earl. If it wasn't for him, I'd never even set foot in Cabana. Shame too, 'cause the food rocks.
Meat Market for the 20 something year olds – I didnt realize what we were getting in to when we went. The ambiance surprised me. We were there from 8p-11p on Saturday. I was not expecting it to be packed with 20 something year olds. This was a meat market for them. When our table was ready, we walked past the cabanas that had curtains. Some rowdy boys went over to the cabanas and opened the curtains so that they could flirt with the girls inside. So much for privacy. Our table was in the big room in the back. As the evening progressed, the music got louder and louder. It went from being a restaurant with everyone sitting at their table to a night club with loads of people crowding around the bar. On my way back from the restroom to my table, I had to convince security that I had a table with friends waiting for me.
