I live in the area and eat at Equestria on a regular basis. I love being able to go and have 2 appetizers for dinner. Sometimes we will go and have an appetizer and split an entree if we aren't that hungry. The service is wonderful, very

Equestria provided the worst dining experience of my life. \r
The food was greasy, not well seasoned, and cuts of meat sub par. The $9.00 appetizer consisted of 2 small (1 inch) fried goat cheese puffs. The $10.00 mushroom appetizer was

Sorry, guys, but this place was a disappointment. The food was pretty good but way overpriced.

Pros: friendly staff

Cons: overpriced

On top of the garden that is in service and the animals they keep, a few new chefs are working there and the menu has changed.So check it out. Before you post on any restaurant in the future, think about the people you are disrespecting by slandering their work. These are Americans working hard for a living, fueling the economy that is so delicate in the last decade. Lest we not forget what this country is all about.

Pros: unique menu and fresh farm product

Cons: too close to train tracks

I was very unhappy with this place and would not recommend it to anyone. The food was terrible,over priced, small portions, went home hungry. I could feed a small family for a week for what I paid for 1 meal and get better food. The crab cakes were only the size of a half dollar and very expensive and not that tasty. The cheesecake was the best thing I ate, but over priced for what you get. Had a beef appetizer with artichokes and bread crumbs with a fancy name, but the beef pieces were burned up along with the bread crumbs, not very good.

We just moved here, it's hard to find great food in the suburbs, several new friends suggested (highly) this place- WHOA, I don't know how they think this stuff is great food at all, it's high priced for the grade of food, I think they may try hard but they don't cut it in our book, the menu is diverse but the quality is just not there at all, we can't figure out why there aren't better truly upscale restaurants in an area with expensive to extremely expensive houses ! all there seems to be is hamburger and bbq joints, pub food and Chili's junk- we moved from FL with my job and so far this experience is disappointing (food)- one of my friends and co-workers suggested we go downtown to eat ! WHAT ? travel to the center city for a decent meal ?? I can't think of any suburb in the US that a man with his wife has to go back to a downtown area in a large city to have a decent dining experience !! that is too bizarre, but we are still looking here around our suburb of Germantown for decent food ! so far NOTHING

Pros: location is accessible and close to where we live

Cons: geez, the food is disappointing to say the least, and it's not cheap !!

.

The truth about this place centers on the need to be perceived as a polished, upscale restaurant when it simply fails the test on many fronts.

Second beware of self promotion. The reviewer just below, listed as 'mps901' is in FACT , MARRIED to the owner and is the owner, Michelle P. Scott ('mps"...901=area code for W TN).

This is a cheap and insulting tactic to prop up a mediocre dining 'experience'. It's also bogus.

Truly great restaurants don't have to have their own owners brag about their establishments on line or anywhere else.

The food there, in my humble opinion, is nothing special, although Memphis does not have much to brag about in upscale, suburban independent restaurants in the first place.

A little research was in order HERE to let the readers of this site that 'mps901' is REVIEWING HER OWN establishment in a positive manner.

Shameful

Pros: Nice decor, wine list,

Cons: The quality of ingredients, bad attitudes

.

I just do not understand these reviews. We go there often and all of our friends. We know fine dining and great food and they have it. I guess everyone has the right to thier opinion but Chef Kevin really does a great job. The restaurant is locally owned and you can tell that the owners really care about the quality of the food. Thier fish is the best. GIve it a try you will not be dissapointed.

for a train depot maybe !

How does this place stay in business. It has reinvented itself a couple of times and I'll give them credit for changing the menu a couple of times, but if you start with inferior ingredients it does not matter how many time the menu gets updated. It's a great suburban location in Germantown but a little too close to freight train tracks for an upscale or wannabe upscale restaurant and lounge. I'd scrap the concept and try something that seems to work in Memphis TN, maybe another Mexican joint or a BBQ shack. Another suggestion is to keep the owners themselves from writing positive reviews of their own restaurant on this and other sites (e.g. cs901 and michelle scott, the married owners) That seems a bit underhanded and weird.

Pros: great location except the railroad tracks

Cons: quality of foos esp. the steaks and seafood !

particularly when one of the owners (just below) has to rate his own restaurant with a great rating, that's too bad but it's telling isn't it ?

It's not unfortunately, same ole junk, this time just dressed up junk, my steak was rather tough and the crab appetizer (I think it was crab, but not really sure) was questionable. I can't say this is good stuff but the location is also kind of strange next to a railroad track

We were told that this was one of the best restaurants in the Memphis area ! WHAT ?? Our service was amateurish and the fish quality was worse than Kroger Supermarket. Something is way wrong here. The wine list was adequate but a bit overpriced.

Pros: nothing

Cons: quality of fish, quality of steak, price/value ratio

I used to go here quite a bit. The menu changed a bit. I don't know who they think they are fooling - they 'say' the steak is Prime Grade, on the menu (no where on it) do they make a similar written claim. I'm a steak eater- I don't like to be lied to - our server said that 'the chef cuts and selects his own meat' ! so what? if it's not graded true USDA prime by his supplier, the chef doesn't know WHAT grade he's actually getting and our steaks were not that great for the price. The service was very amateurish. New chef or not, I found the food kinda bogus. I can't recommend it

From Sarasota, everyone suggested that I must try well.. I have. While reticent to judge the quality of any rest. on three visits experience was lacking and frankly, a bit over-rated based on my experience. One good thing is the decor...it's very well done. Steak advertised as prime , but I found it lacking in tenderness, it was chewy. CrabcakeS actually were a singular cake -it was dry.Salads lacked crispness associated with nice presentation.Bread served cold .Service immature-more indicative of chain theme restaurant not a fine dining one.Mgr handled complaint extremely poorly-seems far too confrontational in re an alleged fine dining, touted Mem restaurant. B'tender on duty seemed out of element-more suited to Chili's clientele. Still trying to locate above average rest.in Mem that reflects informed taste. Had above average at an east side rest Jarrett's

Pros: w/help could be good, located in suburbia, decent wine selection

Cons: unprofessional..., arrogant mediocrity

Steak was tough as nails-and over priced. My wife has fish and it was a bit overcooked and smelly

Equestria Restaurant is a hidden gem, I only wish I had found out about it sooner. The steaks are better than any other of Memphis' fine dining steak restaurants serve. I was delightfully suprised. Their seafood dishes are so fresh and unique, this is definently my favorite restaurant!

We have had hit and miss experiences, too many misses though, too much hype no substance. We have had horse meat that was more tender than our steaks. Service was absolutely stupid acting. We may be able to put up with mediocre food, but the service fell way short. Phoney is a word that describes. No top quality here.

Our meal was excellent. Steaks were flavorful and the cowboy ribeye was outstanding. Salads fresh, desserts great. The grand mariner souffle was to die for. We've been several times, the service has really improved and the wine knowledge of the our server was excellent, he paired a wine with our duck and steak dinner, our guests had fish and pasta and he paired wines for them too.....they've really got their act together now....the Chef is creative and holds obviously a high standard for food they serve. We'll be back. Oh, ask for the Winners Circle if you have a party of 7 -10, great private room for entertaining.

My husband and I have been here just a few times since relocating from Charlotte. It depends on what you're used to but my husband's steak wasn't very tender but tasted okay, but was too expensive. I don't know what grade it was supposed to be, but didn't look/ taste l"prime". My fish smelled a little fishy/overcooked(may be a good thing. Service was okay-server seemed stressed like someone was watching every move. Not professional, but he did payattention. My husband and I get out often, and of course we travel w/ our jobs. In all, our expeiences have not been the "best" (a "10")Candidly and honestly, this place is nothing special. Where we live there seems to be nothing but chain, theme restaurants . We would be a little concerned recommending Equestria to our friends who know really good food, but we may return.

Impeccable service, wonderful food and great atmosphere. The live lobster tank is a welcome addition as one of only two restaurants that I know of that serve fresh lobster. The desserts are to die for. We will be back.

For flavors and desserts that you can not find anywhere within 500 miles of Memphis, you need to check out this casual but elegant dining. Best steak and seafood I have ever eaten especially the fresh lobster out of their lobster tank. Chef Valerie is the best.
