Eh and Blah.
They did not have my reservation that I made by phone. Luckily, the restaurant was pretty empty as it was early. We were sat right by another couple. They were having appetizers. After we ordered, we received bread and butter. The neighboring couple seemed to take notice and later some bread was brought out to them. Guess they forgot to give them some!
I had the tuna and the lobster relish and crab cheesecake were very good, but the tuna itself had no flavor and the tomato sauce with it was weird. Tasted more tomato basil to me with seared tuna is weird to me. My husband got the pork chop- very good, but instead of truffled mac and cheese, he got mashed potatoes. He didn't say anything, much to my dismay, I wanted to try them! Oh, and a piece of his pork was undercooked. My tuna was hit and miss- some were seared perfectly, some too much. I just expect more when I am paying $30 for this plate.
Maybe it seems silly, but I like going places were they seem to appreciate your business and say goodbye and thank you and not act like you are in their way. They were prepping for a large party near us and we walked right past our server and he didn't even look at us. The hostess just watched us leave as well- nothing said at all. All in all it was an OK meal, but I have no desire to return at all- I like going places where they seem to care that you are there.
Better for Boo's than eats. The food is pretty good for the price. But What I adore most about this place is the ambience. I love the upstairs bar! It's amazing in the summertime when they open it up. It's a very social place to gather. I love the martini's.
One of My Favorites . . .. I love Bound'ry. It's one of my "go to" places in Nashville. The bar upstairs is fantastic in good weather. It's also the only place that allows smoking inside (which may be a negative for some), but it's a "treehouse" atmosphere. Downstairs is great, too. It's non-smoking and also has open windows in good weather. The bar has an inset of ice to keep cocktails cool. They sell cigars also. The food is good and they have a late-night menu as well. It's a lovely spot to finish your evening or to start it. I'll be seeing you soon!
the bound'ry is everything and more.... my company recently had our holiday party in the phoenix room at the bound'ry and it was great. the food was AMAZING!!! and the service was top notch. the staff was very attentive and got us everything we needed. it was the best holiday party we have ever had and hopefully we will have it here again next year.
Overpriced, poor service, inept management!!. I recently attended bound'ry for a private event. The set up was great and we thought we were really in for a great time. It started going downhill almost immediately, however. The servers repeatedly ignored us, denying us the most simple requests like water, a black napkin, or steak knives for our fillets! It got to be so bad that I felt the need to say something to the manager, who was unapologetic and rude. We were astonished that a supposedly nice restaurant could provide such disrespectful and inattentive service. Furthermore, the creme brulee that I ordered for dessert was not even "brullee" and was more of a fruit custard and not good. I, needless to say, will not go back to Bound'ry and wish we had picked somewhere else to have our annual holiday dinner party.
Great food. The boundry is one of those places that you recommend to your friends that come to visit from cities like NYC or LA, it is just that good. The food is wonderful, the phoenician is wonderful, the table bread and spreads are fabulous. The service is very good, we have never had a bad meal here and we have dined here about 15 times.
Good Food, Rude Staff. New to Nashville, and everyone told me to check out the Bound'ry. Finally got to check it out two weeks ago. Made a reservation, but when we got there, had to wait. Ok with that. Had to sit at the crowded bar. Ok with that. Had to deal with a rude staff. Not ok with that.When we finaly got to sit down, we walked through an empty restaurant. Why did we have to wait for almost an hour when there were at least a handful of open tables? Girls at the front door were very rude. We tried to get our tab from the bar transferred, and the bartender was very reluctant, but finally did it. Food was good. Duck entree was almost worth the hassle. Salads were small and unimpressive. Dessert was weird and also unimpressive. Server seemed absent minded and not familiar with the wine list. Could have been a good experience if staff was better. Food covered menu was a huge turn off. Bad first impression.
Not the Bound'ry I fell in love with. We have been going to Bound'ry for many years, and have been loyal patrons, however, this steady decline in service is absolutely unforgivable. I used to love coming here with my wife and daughter, but now I do not think that I will ever return. We ALWAYS call and make reservations....ALWAYS. We do this because we request a particular table, and in the past, the Bound'ry staff has always accomodated us. However, we were treated VERY rudely by the hostess, who said that there was absolutely no way that she could give us the table that we requested (which was empty when we got there). Don't you think that if someone requests a table BY NUMBER they may have been to your establishment once or twice and you should try to abide their wishes? We were seated and ordered our usual. Our server completely ignored us after we placed our order. When the food arrived at the table, everything was wrong. After grabbing another server to get our server to correct the error, it took forever to get the food that we had initially ordered, and it was not up to par. Our server was unapologetic and condescending. What happened to this place? It used to be so wonderful for any occasion, but now you can't even go have a decent meal there without there being some sort of mishap.
Awful Service. I've never complained about a restaurant on here, but I felt I needed to this time. We went there on a Friday afternoon/evening for drinks and sat at the upstairs bar area. The waitress was terrible and she did not know the menu. We had to go to the bar to order because we rarely saw her. The drinks were overpriced and blah. We were to afraid to sit and wait for food that might resemble the drink and service. Very dissapointing.
Fabulous food, Great service, Fun Atmosphere. My husband and I have fallen in love with Bound'ry. Last weekend, we had a seafood theme. We had various tapas - tuna nori roll which was delicious; the Crabcake was perfectly done; calamari was wonderful and different; the shrimp and grits here are outstanding. They make excellent mojitos, and the beer selection is also great. If want an awesome night out, go to the Bound'ry. The owner came to our table and was very gracious. The service is always superior here. Don't waste your time going anywhere else!
