Very popular, beautifully decorated neighborhood eatery. Complementary bread and spiced olive oil is a major plus. My lunch today was a wonderful cup of celery-blue cheese bisque and a great Cuban panini w/crisp veggie chips. Friendly and fast service. Full bar and impressive wine list.

Great friendly service. Outstanding food. Our favorites dishes are the salmon and the filet mignon. Great sauces which complement the food well. The salads are splendid. It is a cozy, nice experience. You will enjoy it. Their fine selection is good and is reasonably price. Try it here.

My wife and I try to eat here once every few months and are always pleased when we leave. Great food. Good value. A few eclectic wines to choose from. We found a very nice red blend reasonably priced that went well with my lamb and her mahi. Service was polite and efficient. The Mediterranean platter was a great starter... More

Have eaten lunch here several times in the last several months and have always enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and great service. Recommend the Cuban sandwich and the radish salad

The Wild Iris is one of my favorite restaurants in all of the Nashville area and I go frequently. Always a good menu with a variety of interesting choices from a creative chef. The wine selection is huge. They always have a great lunch menu too. Make sure you make reservations. It's a small place and the only negative from... More

We went there for a special occasion and found the service and food to be just average. Nothing special, in fact not really that good. Average at best and a tad more expensive than it should be. Crowed with tables ,breathing on the table next to you. If You are looking for something nice there are better choices in town.... More

I was happy to experience this fine place. We were not hungry at the time, so I ordered a Caesar salad and the cheese plate. Both were excellent although I couldn't taste anchovy in the salad. If you like Reuben sandwiches you will love the Reuben spring rolls.

This restaurant is one of our favorites. The food is always fresh and unique, but also features standard dishes that we also love. The service is always efficient and friendly, and it's comfortable and far away from the maddening crowd.

Was recently at Wild Iris for a quick lunch before a business meeting. The place opened at 11AM and we were first in the door. Wait staff were very attentive and engaging. We both had the Grilled Fish Tacos which were good but could have used more seasoning in my opinion. Veg on the Tacos was fresh and seasonal. I... More
