    The service for the Sunday buffet brunch was just right. Jamie was attentive and polite and on point with refills and removing plates. The brunch was lovely but the standout was the she crab soup! The manned stations such as omelets and crepes and prime rib were great. The stationary chaffin dishes were overfilled and large and tend to dry out quickly. The chocolate fountain was beautiful and the homemade crème brûlée was excellent! A special occasion place for sure!

    Our first time definitely not our last. What an amazing flavorful meal, great service, great cocktails, great ambience. And the desert, a piece of decadent chocolate cake, end of the night with the five star review. We will be visiting often. We were celebrating our anniversary and couldn’t be more delighted with the evening.

    Mere BullesResponded 3 days agoWow! Thank you for the rave review! And Happy Anniversary! We love it when people share their special occasions with us! We look forward to you next visit.

    Even after being in Nashville a while, this was our first visit to Mere Bulles. We were greeted with a "Happy Anniversary" at the door, and quickly shown to our seats. I'd say service was a little slow but I sense that was intentional to make sure we did not feel rushed. She crab bisque is as good as they say it is. We got the mushroom/brie bruschetta which was delicious. Salmon over corn cakes entree was great, as was their version of shrimp and grits that featured fried grits cakes rather than loose grits. We'll definitely be back.

    Mere BullesResponded 3 days agoThank you so much! We're honored you chose to spend your anniversary with us and are so glad you had a wonderful time. We're looking forward to serving you again soon.

    Good food, waitress could have used more training. Not very attentive, didn’t really know the wines at all (told me a Petit Syrah was a Cabernet) and struggled opening the bottle. Lamb. Chicken, bisque all excellent and served hot

    Mere BullesResponded on January 31, 2023Hi Steve. Thank you for the review, and for the comment about the training. Service is as much a part of the dining experience as the food, and we'll take steps to make sure our staff is better prepared in the future. Thank you.

    The dining experience was as exquisite as the fresh orchids that decorated our table (picture included with this review).The salmon with the plum sauce danced on the tongue. The crème brûlée desert was delightful, with a brittle top of melted sugar in a perfect shade of golden brown. It cracked when gently taped with a spoon. Our waiter, Allen, was attentive and fun. For the best experience, order multiple courses and wine. With all that, we had a party that lasted for nearly two hours. It was a little expensive, but worth it.

    Mere BullesResponded on January 31, 2023Wow! Bill - you should be a food critic! What a lovely review! Thank you so much and we hope you will visit us again soon.

    The ambience is lovely and wait staff were excellent. Food was mediocre. A small Cobb Salad was mostly lettuce and dressing was omitted. Dessert was nice. It is overpriced for the small lunch that I had.

    My spouse and I went to Mere Bulles for a birthday brunch as we have gone there many times in the past. It was disappointing and lacked the ambiance we have come to enjoy as both food and atmosphere lacked. We were seated upstairs in a room that was filled with little kids and at times we couldn't hear each other talk. Our waitress was nice but didn't seem very attentive. I didn't enjoy the trip up and down the stairs to get my food as they were narrow and a lot of pushy foot traffic. I think Mere Bulles could have done better and has in the past. I wanted to say something as we left but there was no one available at the front door to speak to.

    Mere BullesResponded on January 26, 2023Hi Arlene. Our apologies your visit wasn't what you have come to expect from us. For future visits, if you are unhappy with your table, please speak to a manager and we will be happy to reseat you, if possible. We want all of our guests to leave happy. Our General Manager, Nolan Reed, would like to speak with you about your recent visit, however. At your convenience, please reach out at 615-467-1945. Thank you.

    Beautiful venue, excellent service. The food was ok - biscuits were hard and dry and the sauces - gravy, sauce, grits were runny. The she crab soup was good but not very hot, luke warm at best. The eggs benedict was good but the muffin was cold and hard. Best Creme Brulee I've had in a long time. I had a great time sharing brunch with my husband, I wish the food was a little better. It's $34.99 per person, not a bad price for brunch.

    Mere BullesResponded on January 26, 2023Hi Cindy. Our apologies your visit wasn't up to our usual standards. We take our brunch very seriously and it appears we dropped the ball on your visit. Our GM, Nolan Reed, would like to hear a bit more about your experience. If you have the opportunity, please contact him at 615-467-1945. Thank you.

    I have been here many times in the past. The service is always excellent. This time was no different. The presentation of the food was wonderful as always. The preparation (taste) of many of the cooked choices however was poor (e.g. soupy potato cheese casserole, dry and bland baked fish, extremely salty black eyed peas). I was disappointed with my visit this time.

    Mere BullesResponded on January 31, 2023Hi Kimberly. We're so sorry you didn't enjoy your meal on your recent visit.

    The food was excellent. I had called and even notated in my reservation that it was a special occasion, however the table for 10 was inadequate and I had to hang on a corner. Our server was very nice but I think she may have needed assistance as it took quite a while to serve the waters, provide bread, and take our order. Again, food was excellent, I just expected a better table and excellent service. I would recommend for the steak and salmon, but not for a special occasion.

    Delicious food was presented artfully. The server was sweet and helpful. It was crowded and noisy. The outside entrance was a bit shabby with scuffed front door. Paint and wallpaper inside were a bit lackluster. I was not as impressed with the experience as I had hoped to be.
