Made a reservation on December 30th for Friday Jan 2nd, my mom wanted to eat there for her birthday and it was one of her favoite places. We were shocked to find it closed less then 48 hours after we made the reservation. Kind of bad form on their part if you ask me. Oh well...

What happened to Bistro 215?! It has been one of our favorites for years! It doesn't feel right for them not to give any notice or warning to their many loyal customers... It always seemed to do a good business and what a perfect location. Anybody know anything?

This little gem was one of my favorite places to go for a variety of eclectic wine or a great martini! I was there on the 30th and heard nothing of the closing. GreenHills has lost a landmark and it will be truely missed.

Pros: Intimate, yet can be very social if one chooses.

Cons: Can't think of one.

It's a sad day, Bistro 215 is closed forever. We were absolutely shocked.

We will miss you Bistro.

An old friend was texting me from Bistro 215 before a movie, it wasn?t long before I found myself dining alone at the Bistro 215. It was dark lit and enchanting. I was seated in a comfortable cloth covered booth with a nice solid wood table, a dim lit lamp attached to the wall was illuminating my table. I selected the salmon from the menu, & requested a bold red wine and some bread. I couldn?t resist sending her a text to let her know I was dining in the Bistro that she had drinks in before the movie. That?s how my text date began. She was out with friends she hadn?t seen in awhile, but it was only seconds until I had a reply, ?Bistro 215?? She was shocked. She texted, ?I?m glad you are enjoying places I like to go?. I quickly replied with an ?It?s just working out that way?. Brian was back with the bread and wine in a flash. I dipped some bread into the virgin olive oil with spices, it was a delish. The salmon was on a bed of seasoned to perfection mashed potatoes and complimented with seared squash, zucchini, & a couple of thin sliced potatoes. The salmon was a meaty piece that was flaking to perfection. It was caramelized on the bottom but the caramelizing was tender. My omega-3 fatty acids were going to be a delight. Another text, ?So how?s the food?? ?Its amazing, the food will get an excellent review, I?m pretending to be a critic.? Brian was back and as we were chatting he suggested I have dessert on the house. I accepted, & allowed him to select the dessert after naming off at least 7 delish sounding desserts. He brought me a warmed pecan pie, that had to have been spooned onto the crust just seconds ago along with alamode, & caramel swirled all over the whole plate in a fancy design, yum, & a cup of coffee. My last text to her, after dessert, ?That was great, take me I?m yours.? I hope I see her soon, but to be honest, I?d take another text date too. It was fun. Having her there would have made the rating a 10.

Bistro 215 is located next to Greenhills Regal Cinamas, and what caught my eye was how much fun and delicious the food looked on the patio (which not a table was empty). My husband and I went in and the valet opened the door, the host at the door greeted us with a smile and welcomed us and then asked if we wanted to sit inside or wait a few minutes for the patio, we decided to sit outside and only had to wait about 5 minutes. As soon as we sat down a lovely server came over to get our drinks started and told us about their wine list which on Tuesday nights bottles of wine are half price. My husband had alot of questions about the wine list and the server, I believe her name is Megan, answered every question with experience and confindence. Loving the atmosphere, we enjoyed our wine and decided it was time to order. Again, Megan suggested we have the special that the Chef had preparred. Can I say UNBELIEVABLE!!! The filet was so tender it melted in your mouth and the potato onion cakes was full of such flavor I didn't want to end. We enjoyed every bite and every sip. We also ordered the flourless chocolate torte which was a perfect way to end our dinner. Every server that passed our table, the host that was cleaning the table beside us, and who I believe was the manager gave us very warm and friendly smiles as they asked how our dinner was.
This was our first visit to Bistro 215. I can't wait to return.

absolutely the worst experience i've ever had at a supposed "fine dining" restaurant. the servers have attitudes as well as the management. although reasonably priced, the food is not up to par. maybe the owners should look into new management...this place has so many problems! i will NEVER waste my money here again!

Bistro 215 consistently takes my dining experience to the next level. I've been many times, and have been waited on by a number of different servers. What I like most about 215 aside from the food, wine, and atmosphere is the staff that treats me like a long lost friend every time I walk through the door (which is getting more frequent, I must admit). Maybe I have a bit of an ego, but if a staff member remembers me and acknowledges me, I am 110% more likely to return to that establishment.

The food is always delicious and hot, and my glass is always full. The lunch Rib Rolls are FANTASTIC and one of my new weaknesses. Get an extra side of au jus and horseradish sauce for this amazing sandwich experience. I love the Salmon Oscar, too, for a more formal meal. It's a house special you can always get, served with flavorful asparagus and delicious rice (did I mention the asparagus was full of flavor?). The ribs are always mouth-watering, and the meat really does fall right off the bone. The mocha chip pie is addictive.

They have a wine social the first Friday of every month. I've been to a few and it's an event you don't want to miss. The crowd is hip, the wine is EXCELLENT, and when the weather is nice, I love to sit on the patio, sip wine & catch up with friends! It's from 10pm until 1am, and the cost is $15.

I might have seen "isoms" or "fab123456" dining at Bistro 215 before... if not, I know their type. They complain about everything, and usually so they can walk out the door with a free meal (and then complain even with that!). I always tip my waitress well over the accepted 20 percent to make up for the jerks some of them put up with. The good thing about bad waiters (they do exist, I'm not denying that!) is that they don't last long. I waited tables in college. You can't pay the bills when you don't make excellent tips, and you don't get good tips if you aren't a good server.

Try Bistro 215 for yourself. You won't be sorry!

Cons: no live music, except a jazz band on Sundays

My girlfriend and several others had an absolutely wonderful experience here this past weekend. We had reserved for 8 and were quickly and easily presented a table, even in the middle of what seemed to be a very busy night. Our server was very attentive and quick witted as well, getting us all into good spirits (literally) right away. On that note, the wine list is spectacular and we were easily coached through it in accordance with what we were ordering for dinner. Fantastic meal, including an encrusted Ahi tuna steak, roasted duck, prime rib and a blackberry tuna salad, some of our servers' (Michael) recommendations. We had a fabulous appetizer of oysters Rockefeller which was a special that evening, and some calamari, thank goodness not fried for once, but sauteed with marinara and served brushetta style over some toasty crostinis and with parmesan. The GM (Garth) is a sommelier and what a great idea for such a wine oriented restaurant. The staff seems to be well coached in wine as well, and service was better than we could ask for. Bread before the meal is crusty and delicious and from Provance, I believe Michael said. Drinks were refilled, more bread brought during our meal and wonderful desserts. One of the winners was the chocolate tort. Ask about the dessert list because it not only lists the desserts but it is an extensive list of cordials, single malts, etc. This is a great dinner spot and though I have yet to try lunch, I have been to brunch on Sunday and I only need to say that I highly recommend the food at this restaurant. Oh and the ambiance is just perfect. Everything feels mellow and low key. Good stuff!!!

I love the food and atmosphere at Bistro...especially Citrus Chicken. I LOVE it! This is a great place to have a quiet and relaxed meal. ...especially on your birthday! It is also located right near the Green Hills Mall...great location!

The service, however, is a different story. Make sure you ask for EVERYTHING you need when the waitor/waitress is at your table. If you don't you may not get anything to drink during your meal. Don't wait for them to ask or to bring you a drink. This actually happened to me several times before I started asking for everything I needed. Also, the waitresses tend to be a little on the rude side. They also have bread...but sometimes they forget to bring it out....so ask!

The food was cold, the potatoes were bland, the asparagus had no flavor, and the steak was awful. It is a good thing they give you up to $15.00 off on your birthday cause I would have been very angry if I had been required to pay full price for my meal - that I could not eat. I will never set foot in Bistro 215 again. Try to make me go there and I say "NO, NO, NO! I won't GO, GO, GO"! Sure glad I saved some birthday money to use later in the week for a good meal cause this one was awful. Should have know it was bad when there were only 4 or 5 tables with customers in the whole place. The waitress must have know it was bad, this was the first time I have ever been to a restaurant where the waitress or manager did not ask about the quality of the food - shame cause I would have given them the same earfull that I am typing here.
Surely there is room for another quality restaurant in Green Hills, if not they should just shut the place down and open another nail or beauty salon in the space wasted on Bistro 215.

This is one of my favorite places in Green Hills. I love that when you walk in, you are greeted by friendly and smiling staff ready to seat and service you with unique dishes and excellent choices of wine. I haven't had to wait and the food has always been wonderful. I especially love the Blackberry Tuna Salad- very tasty! The chicken salad melt is another great lunchtime item. (insider tip: Use the provided lunchtime punch-card and sit at the bar for two punches- after its full- you get a free entree). Definitely a great restaurant for lunch and dinner in Green Hills!

Nice place for a date. Appetizers were great (calamari and cheese plate) but the entrees were a bit off. I had the steak frites which were charred and a little dry, but my boyfriend raved over the prime rib (I thought it was too fatty). Overall we had a good time; the server was very attentive and even gave us a free appetizer since it was our first time there. Valet parking was definately a plus on a Friday night when there wasn't a space to be found. Atmosphere was very nice and even though it was very crowded it wasn't loud. We'll be back.

BISTRO 215 has a FREE BIRTHDAY meal for the birthday person. This is for one entrée at any price. I had the steak, potato, and asparagus which were great. The most expensive item on the menu at $25 range is the steak. Service was great the waiter kept coming around filling our drinks. The appetizer was a fondue which was nice at $9. What to expect music is a little loud under the speaker and most people that go here are adult. The wine list is large. Parking is easy if you valet, he will park you in the front driveway if you tip ahead. Valet plan $5-10 depending on night. The BEST PART about BISTRO 215 is the whole restaurant is SMOKE FREE even the bar. Nashville places where you can smell the food not smokers a dream come true. We want to thank the management for a great experience.

Cons: Desert list not what I wanted. Nothing special to choose from.

This place has the best French onion soup in the US, and the wait staff is great, too. But, the real star is the wine list and the knowledge of wines that the staff have. I've discovered some great wine here that I would have never discovered on my own.

I've been to Bistro twice; after my first expereince I swore I'd never go back, but after recent staff changes and a new chef, I thought I'd give them a second chance. Boy was that a bad idea. Both times the service has been horrible, we waited 20 minutes for 3 appetizers one night. My steak was not undercooked, but still ice cold in the middle. The new general manager is as pretentious and unaproachable as anyone I've ever spoken to in a restaurant. He's got a real holier than thou sense to him. Bad service, decent food if they can cook it right, and a terrible, terrible management staff. Stay away.

We went to Bistro 215 because we had received a gift certificate from a friend. We honestly had no intention of stopping by, but I am very happy that we did. My boyfriend and I had a wonderful experience. The calamari was exception and I highly recommend going if you get the chance. The filet was very reasonsably priced for what I expected. After dinner, we enjoyed wine with the flourless chocolate tort which, again, I highly recommend. Quite honestly, the food was great, but the atmostphere and service really made it one of the best experiences. I think what made it stick out so much in my mind is the fact that I went not expecting much. I wouldn't recommend this place for a business occassion, but for a reasonable night on the town....great date location!

I went to this restaurant with a large group for a business meeting.
The host of the meeting allowed us to order anything that we wanted. We ordered a very nice bottle of French red wine and the wine was extremely warm, much warmer than room temp. I asked the waiter to cool it down for us and when he brought it back, it was like he had put it in the freezer and chilled it to white wine temperature. I was so surprised that a "French" restaurant was so lacking in wine service.
The food was marginal, to say the most. The sashimi tuna was overcooked, the steaks were bland, and the multiple appetizers that we ordered were on-par with O'Charley's.
On top of all of this, the private room was extremely cold.
I would definitely not recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to impress their guests.

Try the tuna Nicoise, the chicken Bordelaise, the hanger steak and the ribs, all of which are terrific. The cheese plate appetizer is generous and well selected. Some dishes are not as successful, but there are always many nice touches -- the bread is fresh and from Provance, and the service is invariably professional and friendly. The wine list is reasonable and carefully chosen. Like virtually all Nashville restaurants with outdoor seating, this one faces a parking lot. But the cars are a good distance away, there are heating units for cool weather, and the ambience is that of a Paris street cafe. Why customers wait in line for mediocre food in the cheesecake factory just across the way, when 215 is an option, beats me. All in all, this is a great addition to dining in the Green Hills area, and, for that matter, worth a trip across town.

Why customers wait in line for mediocre food in the cheesecake factory just across the way, when 215 is an option, beats me. All in all, this is a great addition to dining in the Green Hills area, and, for that matter, worth a trip across town.

Pros: food, ambience, service
