Grilled Oysters are unbelievably delectable !!! – It is great to visit a place with local history & ownership as well as meet the 2nd generation owner.
My family & friends we amazingly pleased with the smoky flavor & meatiness of their grilled oysters. Ordinarily many of them refuse oysters but not these. Definitely worth a try ! The calamari was light & crisp and the salmon martini & crostini were had just the right mix of onion & capers , too.
Entrees were execellent; Black & Bleu salad, Grilled Elk ( Very Good even though hot sauce smothered some of the flavor)
The Coppola Chardonnay was crisp & clean. The Cab fromk Chile was full bodied , rich with just riught amount of tannins.
Service was attentive & very personable. We'll be back !!!
Great Food and Service – What a wonderful neighborhood restaurant Nero's Grill has turned out to be. We weren't sure what to expect our first time dining there over a year and a half ago but have been there more times than we can count and they meet our expectations each time. The menu is quite large and offers something for everyone whether you are looking for a inexpensive lunch or a great steak dinner. My personal favorites are the Potato encrusted Halibut and Chicken Piccata. My husband's favorites are the Elk tenderloin and their large Strip steak. Our kids enjoy the ribs, crunchy trout, cobb salad and prime rib. While service when they first opened could sometimes be shaky it has been over a year since we had any service issues. We see the same great servers each time. Please ask for Andy, Wayne or Matt they will meet your expectations. What a great find in the heart of Green Hills!
Nero's, My kind of Place – My family has been to Nero's on many occasions. We have always been pleased with the exceptional service, and delicious food. My 13 year old eats cornbread now, thanks to the famous corn cakes! One of my favorite aspects of Nero's is their ability accommodate group parties of all sizes. They have a small private dining room in the front that is perfect for an extended family or any small group gathering, but they can also accommodate a large group in the back dining room. One of my favorite events was held in the bar; it was a surprise birthday party for a good friend. It was a big group, but we never felt crowded, and everyone seemed to enjoy the appetizers, tasty drinks and the casual relaxed atmosphere. I am really fond of the crab cakes, both as an appetizer and as one of their entree menu items, Yummy!!! They have a great event co-coordinator and he was on hand to make sure every detail of the party was just perfect. Recently we enjoyed a special event dinner and wine tasting that featured the wines of Ray Merlo. The price per person was all inclusive, except for gratuity, and we enjoyed a different wine with each course, what a deal! We will continue to make Nero's our first choice for family dining, or for our next big event. Thanks to all of you at Nero's who make it one of Nashville?s best!
Great Service, Awesome Food – My wife and I ate at Nero's on Sunday night. Our server, Andy, came to our table with a warm friendly smile. He steered us towards the specials for the evening and took the time to explain the preparation and even had the knowledge to suggest a wine pairing for the bacon-wrapped prawns. Needless to say, our food and service were extraordinary, and we felt like we were treated like family during our dinner. We will definitely be back again to dine at Nero's and will certainly ask for Andy again!
lots to love... – I have been to Nero's MANY times, and am finally sitting down to write a review. I have had many of their dishes over the past few months and my favorites are the Bleu Cheese stuffed Filet, the Cobb Salad, and the Coconut Shrimp. But everything I have had there has been excellent. I love the low-key, comfortable setting in the bar, and the great atmosphere in the restaurant. Now that the winter is back, I'm going to love going in there for the fireplaces! I usually sit in the bar to meet friends, and if I am early, the bartenders give great service, and are alot of fun. I love bringing friends there because I can always be confident the food will be outstanding, the drinks perfect, and the service amazing--and now I don't even have to suggest Nero's because my friends suggest it to me! Thanks so much for a fantastic place, John and Judy!!
Raw Food, Terrible Service – Some friends and I went on a double date this past Sunday evening. When we arrived, we were pleased that there was immediate seating. Once seated we ordered our drinks, then our meals. It took 20 minutes to get our salads. By the time we got our food an hour and 5 minutes had passed (there were only 5 or 6 other tables of people in the restaurant). My friend and I ordered Chicken Picata, which was basically flavorless and the noodles were over cooked. My friends boyfriend ordered Pork Tenderloin, that came in medallion size pieces. and when he cut into it, it was purple on the inside. It looked like it had just been placed on the grill long enough to sear the outside. The last time I checked pork is supposed to be cooked thoroughly, which means it is the same color all the way through. He didn't send it back because the service was so slow. It took 3 people just to fill our glasses of water. While we were there, only one table who was full when we got there left and no one had a party larger than 6 people. This should tell you something since we were there an hour and 40 minutes. I definitely would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. As a matter of fact, my friend and I have told people NOT to go there due to the bad food and service. It is definitely NOT worth the money.
Great Customer Service and wonderful food. – I had the lettuce wedge with extra red onions and it was wonderful. Then I had the stuffed halibut and it was also delicious.
Herman was our server and he is now my favorite server at Nero's. It was such a beautiful evening, I wanted to sit and chat with me....(his other customers may not have like it).
Johnny and Judy are so nice and make me feel so welcome and special when I come to Nero's.
Keep up the good work guys.
Nero's Grill in Green Hills – I have been to Nero's for Lunch', Dinner and a private party for a 65th anniversary. The best thing about Nero's is the consistency in all aspects. The facility is always spotless, the service has never been lacking, even in the back room with a large crowd placing many orders and the food is GREAT. While the menu is not a Mc Donald's value meal, Mc Donald's does not serve Steaks, Elk, Salmon etc.. with fresh vegetables. Since I have been there multiple times spanning from the opening to last night I rate Nero's Five ( 5 ) Stars. The best testament, I took my daughter to dinner and she loved the food, a 21 year old girl can be very critical when it comes to food, so I feel I am in good company in my opinion. Mike
Inadaquate – We were out shopping the other day and decided to try Nero's. The place is nice, the wait staff is friendly. The food was not worth the money. The corn bread cakes were greasy, and tasted like the oil was old. We ordered the tilapia. It was cold. It also tasted like frozen fish, not fresh. The chicken I got was over cooked, tough, and dry. I don't know who was cooking, but they need some serious quality control in the kitchen.
Pros: Staff, parking, atmosphere
great food & atmosphere! – I went to Nero's for the first time with two of my best friends from school last night. The food (I had Bo's Pasta) was great, and so was the atmosphere. We ate on the outside patio, which was beautiful. I had a great experience and can't wait to go back.
