Nashville’s Best Kept Secret!!
I had heard about Macke’s through a friend of a friend of a friend; delicious food, gorgeous dining room, great service, romantic atmosphere, live piano music. My husband and I wanted to go somewhere nice for a romantic dinner so we made reservations. The girl who answered the phone was very nice, took our information and even offered directions. We found it easily (in case we had printed out our own directions but didn’t need them) The parking garage beneath is well lit and an elevator goes right up to the 2nd floor. We were seated immediately at a cozy table. The dining room is beautiful – fresh flower arrangements, crisp linens, beautiful artwork, and live piano music (the piano man, Bob, plays softly and has a lovely voice) The silverware and table linen was spotless – I am particular about clean plates and silverware. In fact the rest of the restaurant, including the restrooms, is immaculate. Our server, Tabitha, was prompt and very descriptive – she gave a great wine recommendation. We ordered the Lobster Mac and Cheese appetizer, which was FABULOUS!! It was big enough to share – very rich and creamy and piping hot. I ordered the rack of lamb and my husband ordered the duck. Both were delicious; the lamb was tender and the bed of cous-cous and a spicy eggplant were an excellent compliment. The duck was one of the best preparations I have ever tried – moist and just the right amount of sweetness from the sauce to balance the richness of the meat. Unfortunately we didn’t have room for dessert, but the table next to ours had, what our server told us was, strawberry cake and a chocolate amaretto cheesecake. Both looked divine. We had a wonderful time – Tabitha had just the right balance of attentiveness and our food was delivered with perfect timing. We plan on going back soon so we can try everything else on the menu!
- Pros: delicious food, beautiful ambiance, excellent service
- Cons: setback from hillsboro, but easy to find with I-map
I am a chef from Charleston SC in town visiting family and took them to dinner last night and was definitely pleased with the choice I made!! I had researched restaurants & menus prior to the trip and this restaurant and the very creative menus posted online stood out from the rest! Enjoyed chef’s special of halibut with white truffle vinaigrette, yellow squash casserole with tarragon, & roasted purple potatoes very much!! Finished with a limoncello tiramisu…wishing now as I type this that they served breakfast!! Think I’ll be returning to Nashville more often to visit family…and Macke’s!!
- Pros: Creative Menu, Great Food & Service, Neat Atmosphere
- Cons: Location
